Donald Trump Soars

Donald Trump Soars
Trump's poll numbers are soaring all right... Up, up and away into the land of Tea Party Xenophobia, Gynophobia, Phronemophobia, more fears here:http://phobialist.com/
So many phobias these Tea Party people have that when a buffoon like Trump comes along and promises protection from all their fears, they clamor in unison... HE'S THE MAN! Such pathetic little frightened children are they. thinkingblue

Republican Murica


Don't Like Planned Parenthood, Make A Video of Lies and Distortions and Destroy It.

It appears all one has to do to in the convoluted world of Republican Murica, is create a myth about something you don’t agree with because it goes against your fantasy view of reality, get some creep to secretly film and edit, the asking of loaded questions and VOILA you now have reason to destroy the conjured evil.
If this prevails, we can no longer call this a Democratic Justice System… {{What Rights Do Citizens Have in A Democracy? - Everyone Has Basic Human Rights that the State Cannot Take away}}
More like an ISIS system to me.  {{The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has recently streamed a new set of videos that showcase the implementation of their “justice” system in the Nineveh Governorate of Iraq. The videos contain gruesome footage that is not suitable for most audiences, while also, highlighting more of the human rights violations that ISIS has committed over the last 2 and a half years.}}
Misogynists and Bigots cannot be permitted to make laws that harm society as a whole. thinkingblue

Well good for Arkansas! Since our federal wimp-resentatives were afraid to do anything, it is solid governors like Hutchinson who must clean up the mess. My only hope is that he takes the money that was previously given to PP, and reallocates it to more noble women’s clinics.

What is a more noble women’s clinic, one that limits women’s rights to what you want them to be? Abortion is legal. Donating fetal tissue is legal. Blunt discussions between medical professionals are legal. What exactly is your problem?

Medical professionals are called on to do seemingly brutal and horrific things every day, and patients would find many of their private discussions cold, cavalier and vomit-worthy. Does that make them amoral people? Does that make what they do immoral? People need to grow up. We should be THANKFUL for these medical professionals. The amoral people are those who secretly record such conversations, manipulate them, and use them to inflame and push a fringe social agenda.

The article seems to say that the recipient gets to choose, from a list of federally approved providers, where she will receive the services. Planned Parenthood is a legal provider. Isn’t this just one more case of a government restricting a woman’s

GOP Voting Again To Destroy Planned Parenthood By Defunding It, Using OUR MONEY.

Here we go again, Republicans against logic and common sense, voting today to defame (and possibly destroy) some of our rights because they don't comply with their fairytale delusions of what an old guy in the sky (who spies on their thinking and movements, every minute of every day) tells them to do, until he decrees (yup, HE is always male) “You’re Fired!”… Oops, wait a minute… that’s Donald Trump, what old guy in the sky, says is “Your Number’s Up!”… We should all refuse to live in this theocracy, the non-thinking GOP wish to impose upon us. thinkingblue

5 Most Absurd Conspiracy Theories Peddled By Anti-Choice Christians
Why is the anti-choice movement even taken seriously as a political movement by the media?
For the past few years, conservatives have been diligently trying to put a kinder, gentler face on the anti-choice movement. They try to hide that they’re a bunch of ghouls stuck in a titillation-disgust obsession with female sexuality and reproductive function. Instead, they claim to be a bunch of well-meaning church ladies just trying to help those poor young ladies realize that their true calling is motherhood.
But a few weeks ago, the mask got ripped off when a radical anti-choice group going by the name Center for Medical Progress released a bunch of misleadingly edited videos accusing Planned Parenthood of selling fetal body parts in some kind of black market profiteering scheme. The accusations got a momentary blip of incredulous media coverage before the debunking started. To summarize: the people in the videos are actually talking about donating fetal tissue to research (something even Republicans have supported in the past). The people behind the stunt are the same kind of loony right-wing nuts who love trading in bizarre conspiracy theories.
The real question here is why the anti-choice movement is taken seriously at all as a political movement by the media. The movement has a long history of pushing breathless and implausible urban legends that are more at home on some conspiracy theory website than in grown-up politics. Reproductive health care sits at an intersection of human sexuality and medicine, and anti-choicers really love wallowing in the ghastly and the sensational, even if neither has any relationship to reality.
Here are some of the more ridiculous and gross examples.

Over The Top Huckabee, Attempts To Derail Nuclear Deal With Iran By Comparing It To The Holocaust

Nazi Ovens
EXCERPT: Mike Huckabee said he believes the Iran nuclear deal would be bad for Israel. Not just bad – Holocaust-level bad.
In an interview with conservative news outlet Breitbart on Saturday, the GOP presidential hopeful and former governor of Arkansas said the deal will “take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” After facing criticism for the comparison, Mr. Huckabee stood by his remark and posted anti-Israel comments from Iranian officials on Twitter.
“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history,” Huckabee told Breitbart. “It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal.”
Campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart, when asked to elaborate on the Holocaust reference, told CNN “the comment speaks for itself.”

The Lazy Poor Myth

I am so tired of the Republican-Reagan era propaganda that demonized poor people by calling those who need to feed their children, Welfare Queens. Isn't it about time that the truth be known and fingers point in the direction of the real Welfare Royalty who game the system and live a well-off life. A miniscule article tucked away in a thinking type magazine (The Week) is a start but it will never reach the GOP base that relish, for some unknown reason,  perpetuating this false Republican notion that poor people are lazy...

Southern Influence


Why Does the USA Seem So Backwards Compared to Other Progressive States?
Here is a good explanation on why the USA is not very progressive, therefore remaining a bit backwards just like the Nation’s South.
EXCERPT: All English-speaking democracies share certain characteristics in common. Compared to continental European and East Asian democracies, the Anglophone nations tend to be more market-oriented and less statist, with somewhat lower levels of social spending and weaker bureaucracies. We might even speak of “Anglosphere exceptionalism.”
But even by the standards of the English-speaking world, the U.S. appears as an extreme outlier, in areas ranging from religiosity to violence to anti-government attitudes. As we learned after the slaughter last month in Charleston, S.C., some deluded Southerners still pine for secession from the Union. Yet no doubt there are also more than a few liberal Northerners who would be happy to see them go.
Minus the South, the rest of the U.S. probably would be more like Canada or Australia or Britain or New Zealand—more secular, more socially liberal, more moderate in the tone of its politics and somewhat more generous in social policy. And it would not be as centralized as France or as social democratic as Sweden.
As a fifth-generation Texan, and a descendant of Southerners back to the 1600s, I don’t want to encourage lurid stereotypes of a monolithic South. The states of the former Confederacy include ethnic minorities like Louisiana Cajuns and Texas Germans, along with African Americans. And the dominant conservatives in the South have always been challenged from within the ranks of the white community by populists, liberals and radicals.
But the South really is different from the rest of the country. Here are some examples of how the South skews American statistics.
