     Or, Do As I Say, Not As I Do

    The Woman who wants to tell us what to do as vice-president says she is all for "Choice"- at least for whether women with disabled infants and pregnant teenagers should be allowed to work full time as a governor and potential president or stay at home and take care of the kids.  

    She says in her campaign propaganda she wants to allow all kinds of happy Choices once she is in control. . .

"-    so long as the Choices do not involve women learning how to prevent pregnancies,
"-    so long as the Choices do not involve women having sex prior to marriage, and
"-    so long as the Choices do not involve women terminating an unwanted pregnancy even if the lack of Choice threatens the life or health of the women.

    That's not really much of a Choice, is it?  And, don't you have reason to suspect that if she herself was not stuck with a disabled infant plus a pregnant teenager, she would be insisting there should be no Choice on even that?  In light of her other positions, don't you suspect she would normally deny choice for someone in that predicament?

    The voters do have a choice though.  Voters can chose to say no to those who want to order women what to do even when it is a woman doing the ordering.

    The Man who wants to tell us what to do as president says that he is all for "Change"- at least as to which particular Right Wing thinking, Evangelical preaching, war loving, NeoCon touting, 95% voting Republican sits in the Oval Office.  That is a change, of a sorts, I guess so he is not technically lying to everyone.

    He says in his campaign propaganda he wants to make all kinds of happy Changes once he is in control. . .

"-    so long as the Changes do not involve taxing the incredibly rich,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve eliminating our fatal dependence on oil,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve regulating or cleaning up the environment in a useful way,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve removing the proven nincompoops and partisan zealots in the current bureaucracy,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve keeping jobs in America, worker's rights or equal pay for equal work,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve requiring insuring health care is available for everyone,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve maintaining social security or welfare for those who need it,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve expanding benefits for veterans or wounded,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve enhancing college and upward mobility (except through rich trophy wives),
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve keeping armor piercing, long range, 50 caliber, assault rifles capable of bringing down airlines out of catalogs,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve granting same sexes the choice of marriage,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve freedom from religion,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve free speech for dissenters, open meetings, equal time or continued public control of the airwaves,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve restricting corporate consolidation of businesses and farms in the few,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve regulating greedy excesses and stupidities in the business and financial world,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve restricting access by Republican lobbyists or their deep pockets,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve verifiable paper ballots when Republican built electronic voting machines are used,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve redistricting or changing prior Republican gerrymandering,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve revealing crimes or blunders of the prior Administration,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve admitting the economy is in recession, any wrongdoing or saying sorry,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve giving up the right to spy without warrants, to torture, and to prison forever without trial or counsel,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve restrictions on threatening, invading and occupying foreign countries without cause,
"-    so long as the Changes do not involve allowing Democrats any say in future selection of judges.

  There is at least one change though that we can be assured he will attempt--to change the Supreme Court so that Roe v. Wade can be overturned to eliminate the right of Choice for women.  Well, actually it's not entirely true that he wants to eliminate all Choices for women.  Women will still retain the choice of using coat hangers in back alleys or not.  That is both a Change and a Choice.

It's probably obvious I'm a CYNICAL PESSIMIST. Why a cynical pessimist? Possibly it's the result of expending a full lifetime defending, first with rifle in hand and then with a legal pad, "truth, justice and the American Way." Observing the less (more...)
