Don't Force Your Religious Anti Abortion Views On Me!!

Freedom of religion and indeed freedom from religion is a basic right in America. Religious freedom is one of the really important things that I would like to remain intact because as the days go by, the separation between church and state seems to shrink as more Republicans try to keep the pressure up on their war against women, while denying that they are actually waging that war.

We all have seen the various attacks from Republicans on women and women's issues, with those attacks becoming more idiotic, going from vehemently restricting the use of contraception, to the definition of person-hood of fertilized eggs, to the House Bill HR3 by Mitt Romney's VP hopeful Paul Ryan, which even tries to define rape, whether it is forcible or not, real or not, in an effort to force women to have unwanted babies without any concern for the women who are forced to have these rape babies...after being 'forcibly' raped.

It is all well and good to preach your version of religion and the highs of it as opposed to your perceived low points in someone else's religion, but it is not okay to try to force your religious opinions and views on me through changes in law that affect me and mine. It is just not okay. 

If there was any intelligent reasons put forth by the Republicans other than religious ones, to substantiate their misguided war on women, I would be inclined to weigh the argument on the merits. 

When the birth control pill was approved for public use in the 1960's, it was expressly invented and used for the control of conception, but over the past decades the pill has become far more important to most women as a tool to relieve symptoms or cure a plethora of medical complaints, the combination of which far outnumber the volume of use for the specific purpose for which it was first invented. That term of 'Birth Control Pill' is now so '60's and outdated.

The religious views about why contraception should be outlawed is equally outdated, as the medical pills are now an integral part of the attack of disease and women's issues now more than ever. It is imperative that these medical pills, which now vary with different combinations and doses of medicines, to fight differing symptoms and complaints, be used for the continuing wellness of our female population. 

I am happy that the various churches are voicing their own views on women's reproductive issues in their churches and religious circles, but when laws are enacted that affect fellow Americans outside of the churches, then it is an act of war on the very people that said laws were meant to protect. As a direct result of restricting the use of  those medical pills that are intended for purposes of relieving medical problems, many women would suffer excruciating pain, heavy bleeding and many will die. 

This is not an issue of religious freedom as Republicans claim, this is a bogus attempt to curb and eliminate women's rights under the guise of 'Religious Freedom', because someone's 'scriptures' says so. The Republicans' 'War on women' is indeed alive and on going, do not be fooled...and don't tread on me!

The Real Paul Ryan Is Revealed By His Own Words...and The Atlas Society!!

The real Paul Ryan is a bit difficult to pin down, first he is said to have been an ardent supporter of Ayn Rand and her philosophies and more recently when he realized he was hitting the big times, he all of a sudden denied many of the things that he himself is RECORDED to have said. He is now quoted as saying that these past ideas of him being her 'disciple' is an urban myth.

His apparent self loathing of his past as a person who grew up using the Government dollar to get by, is evident in his actions over the years in his multiple attempts to stymie that same Government help to others. I remind you that Ayn Rand also used that Government dollar to get by in her later years, so there may be less of a difference between Ryan and Rand than we first thought.

In response to Paul Ryan's hypocrisy and outright lies about his past, The Atlas Society has been forced [or just seen it fit] to present the real truth, about the REAL Paul Ryan, as recorded by them at their function in 2005, where Paul Ryan spoke to them. Below are pieces of the transcript as presented by The Atlas Society, they have also given a download of the recorded event, at the bottom of their article. Just click on their name to access the article.

From The Atlas Society...

             "Some exerpts from the audio (with minute and second markers): 
(1:45) I just want to speak to you a little bit about Ayn Rand and what she meant to me in my life and [in] the fight we’re engaged here in Congress. I grew up on Ayn Rand, that’s what I tell know everybody does their soul-searching, and trying to find out who they are and what they believe, and you learn about yourself. 

(2:01) I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff. We start with Atlas Shrugged. People tell me I need to start with The Fountainhead then go to Atlas Shrugged [laughter]. There’s a big debate about that. We go to Fountainhead, but then we move on, and we require Mises and Hayek as well.

"I always go back to... Francisco d’Anconia’s speech [in Atlas Shrugged] on money when I think about monetary policy."
(2:23) But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand. And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism.
(2:38) In almost every fight we are involved in here, on Capitol Hill, whether it’s an amendment vote that I’ll take later on this afternoon, or a big piece of policy we’re putting through our Ways and Means Committee, it is a fight that usually comes down to one conflict: individualism vs. collectivism.
(2:54) And so when you take a look at where we are today, ah, some would say we’re on offense, some would say we’re on defense, I’d say it’s a little bit of both. And when you look at the twentieth-century experiment with collectivism—that Ayn Rand, more than anybody else, did such a good job of articulating the pitfalls of statism and collectivism—you can’t find another thinker or writer who did a better job of describing and laying out the moral case for capitalism than Ayn Rand.
(3: 21)  It’s so important that we go back to our roots to look at Ayn Rand’s vision, her writings, to see what our girding, under-grounding [sic] principles are. I always go back to, you know, Francisco d’Anconia’s speech (at Bill Taggart’s wedding) on money when I think about monetary policy. And then I go to the 64-page John Galt speech, you know, on the radio at the end, and go back to a lot of other things that she did, to try and make sure that I can check my premises so that I know that what I’m believing and doing and advancing are square with the key principles of individualism…
(6:53) Is this an easy fight? Absolutely not…But if we’re going to actually win this we need to make sure that we’re solid on premises, that our principles are well-defended, and if we want to go and articulately defend these principles and what they mean to our society, what they mean for the trends that we set internationally, we have to go back to Ayn Rand. Because there is no better place to find the moral case for capitalism and individualism than through Ayn Rand’s writings and works.  "

One comment on their article said of the choice between a supposed Socialist [Obama] and a KNOWN SOCIOPATH [Ryan] ... they would choose the first. I concur!!
Watch out for this guy.

Meet The Most Dangerous Man In The World.

The world watched in absolute horror when George W Bush launched two wars and plunged the world into darkness, now there is one man who threatens to do things that could prove to be even worse. We may well be on the verge of a third world war.

Mitt Romney could well become the most dangerous man in the world if he is elected to be the US President. The Wall Street Journal... "Mitt Romney is relying on both moderate and hawkish neoconservative advisers ...”   many of these advisers were Bush operatives.
Some of the names  from Romney's list are as follows...
  •       Henry Kissinger (Nixon's Secretary of State)
  •       James Baker (George H.W. Bush's Secretary of State)
  •      Cofer Black (former CIA official, former vice president of Blackwater International)
  •      Eliot Cohen (George W. Bush's State Department official)
  •     Paula Dobriansky (George W. Bush's State Department official)
  •     Norm Coleman
  •    John Bolton (George W. Bush's former UN ambassador)
  •    John Lehman (Reagan's Secretary of the Navy)
  •    George Shultz (Reagan's Secretary of State)
  •    Richard Williamson (George W. Bush's Assistant Secretary of State)
  •    Michael Chertoff (Bush's Homeland Security Secretary)
  •    Michael Hayden (created warrantless wiretapping programs for Bush)
Dick Cheney is also rumored to become an adviser to Mitt, since he now has a new heart and promises to be around for a long time. It is said that he will be MItt's 'Handler" as he was for Bush, in short being the President behind the scenes. 

              "Mr. Romney's campaign rhetoric suggests he isn't shying away from some of the tough policies      
         advocated by his party's neoconservatives. He has issued sharp warnings about steps he would 
         take to keep Iran from securing a nuclear weapon, dubbed Russia the nation's "No. 1 geopolitical 
        foe" and has promised severe sanctions against China."

      "There is John Lehman, the Secretary of the Navy in the Reagan administration, who sources say is a lead actor in the Romney cast. Then there are Michael Chertoff and Michael Hayden, the Homeland Security secretary and CIA director who both served under President George W. Bush. Two former GOP senators, Norm Coleman of Minnesota and Jim Talent of Missouri, also are on Romney's team.
The supporting cast is also composed of Washington's security and foreign policy veterans: Eric Edleman and Dov Zakheim, who held high-level Pentagon posts under the younger Bush. Zakheim's son, Roger, a senior staffer on the House Armed Services Committee, is also assisting Romney, along with Dan Senor and Megan O'Sullivan, who emerged as major players during the Iraq war."

On his recent visit to Israel and Poland, Mr. Romney seemed to suggest that he is more than willing to start a third world war by encouraging and Israeli attack that is sure to draw a sharp and heated response from Russia and China...should he be elected President.

This falls well in line with the mindless decisions George Bush made in cow-towing to the Neo-cons' war mongering schemes, when he started the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. These are the same war-mongering neo-cons who Mitt Romney is now surrounding himself with.

I am reminded of Dwight Eisenhower's speech in which he warns about the Military Industrial Complex and the trouble they would cause if allowed to fester and grow. Halliburton, KBR and Blackwater is proof that his warnings have come to fruition, these companies are the ones that supply the armed military contractors in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They also provide the necessary infrastructure and day to day supplies needed for those wars. 

Mitt Romney must not be elected, as he will surely make George Bushes wars seem like child'splay.
