Government Bullies

Back in the 70s women used to call them male chauvenist.  I am sure they will have plenty of names for those folks in the House on the GOP side when word gets around to those feminist groups that rape does not mean rape. least rape won't mean rape if the House has its way and gets to redefine it.

"Rape is only really rape if it involves force. So says the new House Republican majority as it now moves to change abortion law."~~Nick Baumann, MotherJones~~

"Other types of rapes that would no longer be covered by the exemption include rapes in which the woman was drugged or given excessive amounts of alcohol, rapes of women with limited mental capacity, and many date rapes. "There are a lot of aspects of rape that are not included," Levenson says."~~Nick Baumann, MotherJones~~ 

I guess the GOP party has never heard that saying "Hell has no fury like that of a woman," but in this case instead of woman, it'll be women.  I forgot...the GOP thinks that women should be seen and not heard and act robotish like the Stepford Wives.  But Michelle Bachmann is not going out because she is out of control and making the GOP party look like whimps.  Although well...she does seem to have some major mental problems and one of the reasons why  I would advise folks to pass through Minnesota as quickly as possible and do not stop because she reflects the mindset of the people who keep voting her in office...crazier than a road lizard.

Wait a minute, dead birds, dead fish, and now dead cows.  Oh well, you can relax folks because sweet potatoes are to blame for 200 cows death. least that is what their telling us.  But then again, they told us that the birds were falling out of the air and dying because of firecrackers, cold weather, Diesel trucks, and a few other ridiculous causes that did not add up.  People were coming down with colds, runny noses, and stomach viruses that they couldn't get rid of around the same time the birds were dropping dead out of the sky.  Okie dokie...alrighty then!  I think I'll go and purchase a few surgical face mask.

Glen Beck needs to do an early retirement thingee. He seems to have a penchant for pissing folks off.  Dope and alcohol do not mix and together they intensify the effects. That's two different chemicals! Folks who were long habitual users like Beck act stupid like he does. Therefore, common sense would tell a person that it takes longer for the body to detox because mixing those two together would have a more extreme, longer lasting effect like say....for years to come. Some folks should have taken chemistry classes serious in school. Smh!

Gosh golly wow!  I wonder how these three governors have came up with the idea to cut medicaid.  Wow! I bet that took a lot of strenous brain activity.  It's like the big guy picking on the little guy.  But folks face it, that is what government is all about picking on the poor and downtrodden while bending over backwards for the rich.  Don't you just love their tiny-minded ideas.

On rape: How many women stood in line at their polling place to put these wingnuts in office who now wish to redefine what constitutes rape?

I'm betting, Granny, we won't hear a peep from them.

I hope they prove me wrong, but these Laura Schlessinger types within the Republican Party--just as some of the Tea Party types, many of whom say they're prepared and willing to have their Social Security, and Medicare slashed to ribbons to whack away at the size of government--are probably equally willing to reinterpret what constitutes rape.

Yes, thanks to what's been going in this country of late, I'm just that cynical.

I think the rape laws should be changed and I'm glad the GOP is doing it. This is the 21st century and those rape laws which charge poor innocent men with rape when a woman consents is baloney.

Besides, women rape men these days but you don't hear them complaining do you? smh.

I think you are on to something with all these strange deaths of birds, fish and cows. When people start dropping dead, then there might be some concern-provided they aren't poor.

Sister Granny..hello from the East Coast. Checking in now and then.

My thoughts about the animals are grounded in the fact that the USA government has experimented on people in a negative way many times. Those we know of and those we dont. A small dose of a toxic aeorsol can ill animals and a larger dose know. The government has to have a way to control/kill population in a fast way. It not rocet science to now thae we as a country stand on shifting sand. Too many people want to have things their way. Diversity bring covert anger. Anger that is never addressed for fear of being labeled. An example is the daily drone of maing sure President Obama is a "one term wonder"

As far as changing the rape standards,I hope some education is mandated to allow young men what constitute rape. Having a male child, I always taught him to respect women as well as I serving as an example. As an addeum, I now society has blindly created a double standard in regards to our men having low standards for the African American female. She is slighted on both sides of the law. This atatement comes from a Black man with 60 years of "seeing"

Here's a story about a strange aerial phenomenon that gives credence to your take, and that of StillaPanther2's, on the government's possible involvement in the releasing of toxins into the atmosphere:

UFOs Over Utah Drop Flare-Like Objects

Those are clearly UFOs dropping something for test purposes on our planet. We have been discovered by higher intelligence.

Stuff dies, especially in nature.
A couple years ago we had a really good year for buckeyes (like a native chestnut type of nut tree here in the Ohio Valley). Well, there were also a large number of deaths in some cattle herds. Seems buckeyes eaten to excess will kill a cow.
Mass deaths in nature are not unusually or a new phenomena.
Beck is a moron and an insane one at that.
The repubs have crossed the line once again with this rape definition bullshit.
Cutting medicaid is like cutting their own political throats.
That's a pack of crazies you got here Ms. Granny!

Ain't it a crying shame. Yup, it sure is. Did you pester your own grandmother when she was sick like you do me?
