I’ve been unfortunate enough for the past 24 hours to hear women bitch and complain about Mitt Romney not taking office.
Let me just say that this bothers me on so many levels, because not only does Mitt Romney not support the LGBT community, but he made statements disregarding women’s decisions for their own health, and has a superiority complex that is so far shoved up his ass, that I hope he
Opinions are opinions, you are entitled to them, but when those opinions directly disregard the gender/sexuality/class/culture/etc of others, your opinions become the target of people not wanting to take you seriously or respect you.
Obama has done plenty of fucked up shit as well. Drones anyone?
Romney would have done just as horrible things, and probably a decent amount of horrible things in relation to social issues in this country. American imperialism doesn’t change by much depending on which ass hole party is in charge.
Instead of bitching about your political ‘leaders’ (i say leaders with a very sarcastic tone) help out your own community and actually do something yourself. Don’t heavily rely on voting or the american rat race for things to actually improve. Be conscious of what is going on through out the world, and don’t just fixate on what Fox News or any other mainstream media is spewing.
Take action and be active. Instead of waiting for the “top down” method to unravel , create your own bottom up community.
Peoples stupidity has done enough for me this week.
Looking forward to reading this book.
Fucking hate both parties, and this guy is ripping them both a new one.
I heard some guy at mothers market tell his friend that “women can never be leaders of this country because they have their periods and they are emotional”.
Pissed off (obviously) by this remark, I scolded him, and told him that women deal with pain, discomfort , and lots of blood being disposed from their bodies every thirty days for at least thirty years . Something that requires patience, pain tolerance, and strength. Let alone, having to deal with stupid fucking men like himself while enduring a mini apocalypse in their bodies.
Periods aren’t for wusses , they are for warriors.
Shut him right away.
Mitt Romney tells 533 lies in 30 weeks, Steve Benen documents them
I’ve written about or linked to a great deal here “chronicling Mitt’s mendacity” — to borrow Steven Benen’s phrase.
Mitt Romney says many, many things that are not true. He says this despite being in possession of the correct facts of the matter.
This is documented. Proven. Validated, verified, demonstrated, catalogued and quantified. Mitt Romney lies.
Here are 30 — 30! — of Benen’s weekly “chronicling” posts. These are all backed up and sourced. These are not assertions, interpretations or allegations. These are facts, actual instances.
Over the past 30 weeks, Mitt Romney has told lie after lie after lie: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII, XIX, XX, XXI, XXII, XXIII, XXIV, XXV, XXVI, XXVII, XXVIII, XXIX, XXX.
Click those links. Read the lists. List after list of lie after lie. Hundreds of them — 533, to be exact, although Benen does not make any claim to providing a comprehensive chronicle.
This is unprecedented. “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers,” Romney’s pollster, Neil Newhouse, said.
This has produced what James Fallows calls the “post-truth” age — a relentlessly dishonest onslaught of brazen falsehoods with which the media and the political system are struggling to cope. What do you do when every article, every “fact-check,” every arbiter denounces a lie and corrects it, but then a politician just keeps repeating it?
It’s remarkable to behold.
One of the weirder aspects of this for me is watching this unfold in the politically conservative culture of my evangelical world. The most partisan evangelical conservatives are also those most likely to rant against “relativism” and to trumpet their status as defenders of “absolute truth.” Those same folks will dismiss this post — and all 30 of Benen’s posts above — as mere partisan attacks without ever bothering to examine the 533 factual instances of Mitt’s mendacity, chronicled.
That’s the only cognitive defense they have, I guess. Jam fingers in ears and shout la-la-la-you’re-being-partisan!
Because, you see, the fact that Mitt Romney said something he knew to be false is a partisan fact. And the fact that he has done this at least 533 times in the past 30 weeks is also partisan.
I suppose the other approach for Romney defenders who cannot bear to face the fact of those 533 facts will be to angrily pore over all of Benen’s lists, reading each one with a lawyerly eye.
Have at it. Please. Cherry-pick. Spin. Split hairs. Hand-wave away whichever lies you wish as mere misdemeanors and not full-fledged felonies against honesty.
But how many of those charges do you think you can get dismissed? 10 percent? 20 percent? Maybe, if you’re that sort of person and you work really hard at it — if you’re willing to get even more pedantic and semantic and technical than even you are usually comfortable with — maybe you could half convince yourself that 50 percent of those lies somehow shouldn’t really count against Romney.
That still leaves more than 260 lies. That still leaves Mitt Romney as a convicted liar, 260 times over. And at that point you’ll have to join your friends with their fingers in their ears.
But you’ll still know.
meanwhile, the republicans continue to be giant fucking ass holes.
I could be having a good day, but the moment I hear anything come out of a stupid politicians mouth, I instantly get a rage of fury. Especially, ESPECIALLY, with republicans. Its like when you are a kid and you come home and are excited to do whatever it is you wanted to do, but your mom starts screaming and hollering at you as soon as you walk through the door for something you don’t even know what you did.
The solution to getting all of those male politicians who are against the birth control pill to shut the fuck up?
Get all the women who rely on the pill to help with their cycles to deliver their feminine products which have been used (heavily used) to the doors of those politicians to show them what happens when women are not able to have the pill to help regulate their flow.
As well as hand delivered letters enscripted with their thoughts on dealing with PMS.
They do say that men are visual creatures…..
