Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Moronic Intelligence: (How do you like that for an oxymoron?) since these are the same MEN who voted on Women’s health rights. Can they get any STUPIDER?!

Fringe Factor: Tampons But Not Guns Banned in Texas Legislature
Texas: State Capitol Bans Tampons But Allows Guns by The Daily Beast Jul 14, 2013

With Texas’s state senate once again debating controversial restrictions on abortion, security at the state capitol has been tightened to prevent disruptions from the gallery like those that occurred during state Sen. Wendy Davis’s 11-hour filibuster of the abortion bill on June 26. The Texas Department of Public Safety is searching the bags of anyone entering the gallery to watch debate and confiscating any tampons or maxipads found.

There is concern that these female hygiene products could be used as projectiles and thrown at state senators. However, visitors can still bring guns into the gallery if they have a concealed carry license.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

I thought up a few more oxymorons for you: Republican Right/ Religious Right- both are because they are not always correct! Protective Disenfranchisement- when the republicans vote for a bill that takes away your right to choose in personal situations for your own personal life or welfare. Religious Freedom- only freedom for those who take it away from the other religions/ or belief systems. How do you like chewing on thems nuts for a while, boys? LMAO!

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

In that case...let's outlaw murdering children altogether and let the murderous narcissists go to back alleys with coat hangers, because that is what there is right now without this new bill.

If people are sexually responsible there is no need to abortion.

And I ask again, why is a lesbian who will never conceive interested in abortion...not anymore better than men having an opinion on the subject really.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Protecting woman by denying them a choice and place for their own personal heath care is not protecting woman. Aren't Republicans for less government in our lives not more? I believe that is what they call an oxymoron situation approved by morons.

Guru and Stacey, the Texas bill protects women...why in a thoughtful world would you be offended by that...unless your agenda has caused brain dysphasia.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

I would think the heath care of any woman in any state is important to all women, even this lesbian. Just because I never have sex with a man doesn't mean I can't show compassion for another woman in a state that is trying everything it legally can to override Roe vs Wade. If you can't change the law from less than 20 weeks, they will change the law on regulation of clinic to close them down from doing abortions. Again, who cares about this poor woman and her own health and reproduction decisions that she should be making and her doctors recommendations, we'll force her to conform to our self-righteous beliefs instead of her own.

So much for standing up for our US Constitution and the rights of each person to make decisions for their own lives, the religious right and the GOP will be doing this for us.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Hmmmmm according to the conservative watchdog pollsters at The Huffington Post 59% of Americans agree with the late term abortion ban…
Turns out, Americans believe you can make a "choice" in less than 5 months.
So that leads us to wonder, is Hightower just confused about polls or is he a bald faced liar? Since I have seen it so many times from this man, I have to go with the latter.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

One wonders why you concern yourself with the state of Texas. And, if your made up "poll" is correct, you and your fellow busy-bodies have nothing to worry about.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

Stacy, although very well written and spot on, I'm afraid it is much too complex for Hightower (and liberals who think with their emotions) to comprehend.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

I look on in amazement as to how Hightower thinks this is just "greedy old meany corporations" or some such fap. Welcome to inflation there Jimmy boy. When an incompetent, stumbling man-child takes over and runs the defecit from 9 trillion to 16 trillion of debt, that debt must be serviced. And the way the Obama/Bernanke machine does this is by printing money. Then these two MENSA members decided they could also print for other things, 2-years of 2 year unemployment extenxions, Food Stamps, Obamaphones, money for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, Green energy boondoggles, failed electric car programs, purchasing Chevrolet and giving it to the UAW, purchasing Chrysler and giving it to Fiat, and the list goes on and on. You know what Jimmy boy? When there is more of something it is worth less and when there is less of something it is worth more. Obama/Bernanke nearly DOUBLED the money supply, reducing our dollars value by close to 40%. That is why when Obama took office a gallon of gas cost $1.85 and never will again. Thanks Democrats, you are really something else.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" right Hightower. I bet a socialist like you wants everything to be "free".
Obviously most folks are smarter than you and can figure it out. Here's a thought, if you don't like the product, don't by it.

Re: “Wolves in do-gooder clothing

Right Jim, if someone does anything political they shouldn't be a 501(c)(4) corporation. Let's look at who we are talking about, shall we. The NAACP, the Gil foundation, Organizing for America, Media Matters, Ruckus Society, Americans United for Change,
Women’s Action for New Directions, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Voto Latino, La Raza, MeCHa, and the list goes on and on. If you want to do awy with 501 groups that are politically based, well I am with you brother because there are a fuckload more "progressive" groups on that gravy train than the measley amount of Tea Party groups subjected to your messiahs inquisition. And by the way, I call trying to keep communists and other assorted dirtbags, such as yourself, out of power to be a VERY GOOD social welfare group. Because in America, social welfare aint socialism, unless you are one of the aforementioned dirtbag communists.

Re: “Going hungry in Houston

Here's an idea Jimmy. Why don't you and your bleeding heart adopt all the homeless in the Springs. You don't need to take them in, but simply follow behind them and pick up all the trash they heedlessly toss around. Or, better yet, pick up all the feces deposited daily along the trail system. Or are you just talk?

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

K: what a putz. You have yet to offer an original thought. You sit on your perch, like the vulture you are, and pick apart people's posts. You actually believe yourself to be wise. You are the biggest joke on these pages. (Well, tied for biggest. The twisted sister is pretty ludicrous as well.)

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

siggie, you wrote, "Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today." Indeed! That is because many, if not most, of the unions were organized and led by unabashed communists and socialists. In the 1950's, after the Soviet Union tested a nuclear device, and America officially entered the "McCarthy Era," communists and socialists were drummed out of the unions, paving the way, in many, but not all cases, for unscrupulous opportunists to take over.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Arch-conservative President Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon opened relations with "Red China," a policy no Democrat would ever have been able to introduce. He was initiating a divide-and-conquer maneuver, trying to drive a wedge between the two allies, and his policy was certainly instrumental in the fall of the Soviet Union.

Now that the Soviet Union is no more, it is long past time to turn against the "Peoples' Republic," to put an end to the sham they call communism, and to liberate their people, using the same weapon we used against the Soviet Union, economics. But the so-called "job creators" are too busy making record profits from the exploitation of Chinese workers. And so-called "conservative" politicians are responsible for mortgaging the nation to China to fight not one, but two (count 'em!) wars.

These "patriots" are bolstering China's economy. They are today's true "useful idiots!"
