The politics I love and hate, wrapped up in a conundrum.

And you think, that’s kind of how we’re treating God when he’s given us these gifts of abundant and inexpensive and effective fuel sources. And we don’t thank him for it and we don’t use it. You know, God has buried those treasures there because he loves to see us find them.

Are these people so stupid that they don’t see the argument they’re making FOR God’s gift of fossil fuel could also be used for the wind and solar power they poo poo?

A question for the simple-minded teavangelical politicians who want women to have no choices

Once you overturn Roe v. Wade and pass your Paul-Ryan-sponsored Personhood Amendment, are you also going to pass laws that prohibit a rapist from having visitation rights to their baby or making custody claims?

Everyone needs to watch this video, left, right, center, apathetic—it doesn’t matter. This is the very essence of rape illiteracy that is still being fought in 2012.

Share with everyone. You never know who needs these words the most.

Meet The Mourdocks: The Other Republicans Pushing To Block Abortions For Rape Victims

– REP. TODD AKIN (R-MO): “It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

– REP. STEVE KING (R-IA): In an interview with Iowa’s KMEG-TV, King denied ever hearing about anyone getting pregnant from statutory rape or incest, saying: “Well I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way, and I’d be open to discussion about that subject matter.”

– REP. ROSCOE BARTLETT (R-MD): At a town hall, Bartlettresponded to a question about abortion by reiterating his longstanding opposition to the procedure in every case except for rape, incest, and if the life of the woman is in danger. But when an audience member pressed Bartlett on the rape exception, he suggested that few pregnancies result from rape.

– LINDA MCMAHON: the Connecticut senate hopeful told a local newspaper that Catholic hospitals should not be required to provide emergency contraception to victims of rape. “I mean it’s a separation of church and state in my view, and I think that a religious institution has the right to decide what its policies would be in that, in that case,” she claimed. She later reversed herself.

– TOM SMITH: the Republican challenging Sen. Bob Casey’s (D-PA) seat, suggested that having a child out of wedlock was analogous to rape during an interview with a reporter at a press club this afternoon, claiming that it would have a “similar” effect on a father.

– STATE REP. ROGER RIVARD (R-WI): the state lawmakers, who also won Paul Ryan’s backing, claimed that some girls “rape easy” and sometimes portray a sexual encounter as rape if they become pregnant.

– STATE REP. JIM BUCHY (R-OH): admitted that never thought about why a woman would want an abortion. After an Al Jazeera reporter asked Buchy why he thinks some women may want to have an abortion, he fumbled for an appropriate response before admitting he had never thought about that question before.

Ladies, is this who you think should be in power in the United States Congress?

Seriously, what is the deal with these old, white conservative men and their obsession with rape and abortion?

They’re so nasty, you’ve got to think the only way they can get sex is by forcing themselves on a woman, hence their desire to disregard rape, change the statutory definition of rape, and their general insensitivity to women who are raped.

The Obama administration, through all this appeasement and apologizing, answers to the Quran first and to the Constitution second.

True story. Remember when Barack Obama tried to sneakily impose sharia law by proposing a bunch of anti-woman bills? Wait.

But news this morning is that the Romney campaign is going to pander even more aggressively to this “base” of the GOP with speeches on patriotism, America as a Christian nation and some extra cripsy Bible thumping. Good call. 

We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.

James Fairbanks and Alain Beret filed the suit on Monday, claiming that they were close to purchasing a mansion, named Oakhurst, when the church suddenly pulled out of the negotiations. An email accidentally sent to the couple’s broker revealed that they were “not interested in going forward with these buyers” because they might host a same-sex wedding.
