Say goodbye to your rights, folks

Women, heck you don't mind going back to being mere chattel, do you? Men, you don't mind having to make every decision about your family planning by yourselves, right? Because nows the time for us all to take a deep breath and enter the Way Back machine, Sherman, because Dr Peabody couldn't stop the Alito confirmation. That's right, no filibuster, and we have a new Supreme Court Justice, one that believes that the balance of power is a joke and that the executive branch is one step away from a monarchy. The guy who doesn't support any rights for women, who is against abortion, family planning (i.e. birth control) and advanced reproductive help.

But we don't much care, do we? Because we've got such a great country with a president who is leading us right into complete disaster, a Supreme Court that has no clue as to what the 'average Joe' might believe or care for, a congress that is more into filling their own pockets by emptying ours, and a international mystique of incompetence, terrorism, and pomposity beyond anything seen since King George III.

I'm just sick. Sick that my daughter isn't going to be allowed to make decisions about her body because some asshole white guys in Washington know what's best for her. Just ask them, they'll tell you. She's just a stooopid girl and she couldn't possibly understand that her job is to breed dem babies and shut her trap.

American the beautiful? I think it should be changed to America the terrifying.

Hi there! Love your site and your posts, great stuff, really!

Anyway, you're right about our state of affairs getting scarier and scarier. I saw a bumper sticker several years back that said something like "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!" It wasn't until Bush took office that I began to understand what it meant.

History has shown time and time again that when a society becomes apathetic towards its rights and lackadaisical in its attention it will ultimately pay the price. See Napoleon’s France and Hitler’s Germany for examples.
I fear for the country that we are leaving our children.

It's getting scary isn't it. I wish we could just clean out every single one of them in Washington. It's the dumbest, crookedest, well you know.

I don't understand how we as a country actually let this happen!

I've feared this day from the start, but now that it's here I can barely feel anything...because so much is wrong with this adminstration and what they have done...that it feels almost too big to approach!
