De-Fund Planned Parenthood or America Gets It!

Several to-the-right-of-Hitler House Republicans are threatening to vote for a government shutdown if any of their anti-abortion amendments — including the amendment to de-fund Planned Parenthood — are not included in the spending bill. This is the bill that would keep the federal government funded through next September.

The ringleader is Rep. Chris Smith (R—Biblehumper). He said:

“I'm going to push so hard to make sure those are all in there.”

The amendment to eliminate all federal funding for Planned Parenthood was authored by Rep. Mike Pence (R—Cocksucker).

This new gang of Republican thugs is determined to take America back — to the 17th century.

As lowdown and slithery as Republicans are, you’d think the Democrats wouldn’t trust them as far as they could throw them. Unfortunately, Senate Democrats got punked by them. Again. Last month they made a handshake deal with Senate Republicans to dial down the unprecedented filibusters-on-steroids from last year and the year before.

They made a handshake deal with Republicans. [jaw dropping] [eyes throbbing]

A handshake deal with Republicans?!?!?!?!? Hellooo?!?!?!?!?

Gee, I met this honest-looking person yesterday near the bus depot. He had this heartbreaking story about needing $100 so he could get a bus back to Minneapolis where he had a job interview. He said he’d pay me back. So I gave him $100, and then I realized he didn’t have my address, so I lent him my driver’s license so he’d know where to send the money after he got back on his feet.

Needless to say, Senate Republicans are now planning to filibuster more and bigger and better than ever. The eight Senators (so far) who are planning this huge filibuster campaign are: Tom Coburn, John McCain, Jim DeMint, John Ensign, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Kelly Ayotte. Gang of Eight: go fuck a hornets’ nest.

Senate Democrats: For God’s Sake, get it in fuckin’ WRITING next time.

I always said we could solve this whole abortion thing if we made the list of everybody who had one public. Would work for Prostitution and Drugs too

My dad and I always used to joke about how retroactive abortions might be a really cool idea. He was very conservative, so he was always thinking of going back in time to prevent the births of people like Walter Mondale and George McGovern. Me, I was always thinking of people like Richard Nixon. We both agreed on ones like Hitler. If only someone was bright enough to build a time machine. 8-)

But nobody is bright enough to build one, so the GOP will try to take us back in time in other, far less scientific ways. In fact, the heck with science. Science requires inquiry, and they sure as hell don't need that. Heh! People asking questions, or questioning the authority they perceive they have? That is the LAST thing they need, is people questioning them. A good time in history when nobody questioned authority? Maybe in the days of the Salem witch trials, back in the days of Cotton Mather... that might be a target.

I had been thinking maybe they wanted to take the country back to before 1913, as that was the year the 16th Amendment was ratified. But that would just cover the "getting rid of taxes" part of it. For the religion, they would have to drive us back about 200 more years, at least.

God must love em. Because I surely do not. But, the silver lining is that maybe more Republican obstruction will sharpen the light and focus on just how out of touch the Right's leadership is with the majority of us loose dogs who they want to rule, body and soul.

An even simpler solution would be for people to mind their own damn business...What a concept!

Unions represent the greatest aspect of democracy that Republicans cannot stand: the power of surfs to have a say in how they are governed. When the corporatocricy gets rid of them, the coup will be almost complete. Then they will have taken the country back - to a place it has not been before but to place that would look quite familiar to the Soviet Union and Red China.

Was there ever the slightest doubt this would happen? Would it be any different if Senate Democrats had it in writing? Would it even matter if Democrats had several of the Republicans' wives and kids as hostages, for security?

If the GOP had a time machine, the South would have won the Civil War

And put an end to their "You better be scared . . ." and "You've got reason to be resentful" wedge-issue campaign fodder? I don't think so.

With my compliments to Mr. Graves:

Neville Chamberlain: We have peace for our time.

Herr Hitler: Ve vish to nefer go to var vith Britain again. Und I haff Czechoslovakia! Sieg, Heil!

Neville Chamberlain: Thank you, Herr Hitler. Please don't hesitate to let us know how we can further accommodate you. Enjoy your new Lebensraum.

jadedj: My sentiments exactly.

Erik: That would certainly work. As long as there's one set of laws for VIPs and another set of laws for everybody else, politicians can keep preaching one thing and practicing the opposite.

Snave: At the very least, Republicans would like to bring us back to the Gilded Age of the late 1800s. (Or maybe we're already there.) But the Salem Witch Trials would be even better.

Randal: LOL. And apparently nobody's learned anything since then.

MRM: I keep hoping these Republican tactics will get the public spotlight shone on them.

WTF: People minding their own business? Not in this country or this "Christian" culture.

Jack: They'd certainly like to.

Rick: Damn right. The GOP longs for the good old days when a serf was a serf and didn't have some commie labor union to fight for him.

SW: LOL. You're probably right.

Erik: The South is still fighting the Civil War. It's anyone's guess who will ultimately win it. Or maybe it'll just keep raging on for a few more centuries.

SW: Good point. Without pushing the fear/hate/resentment buttons, the GOP would get nowhere.

Dave: LOL. And the appeasement continues.

When are the frigging democrats left in the house going to start crowing about "What was that shit you spewed during the 2010 elections about JOBS, eh? Where's that shit now, huh?"

Seriously, cripes, the republicans are just a fucking joke with the constant falling back to their old default positions. Why are we the only ones who seem to get the f'ing joke??

Bee: Unfortunately, spines are required in order for the Democrats to stand up to congressional Republicans. And those spines are still MIA.
