The season when those wingnuts come out with their anti-abortion screed. I guess it’s too cold for these pussies to take to the streets, but then that wasn’t effective anyway. Let’s shame the legislators into making abortion illegal, that’s a much better goal for them.
So I always look at the current photo album on our local rag, The Providence Journal. Today I saw a picture that sums up my feelings on those who are against abortion. They’re so ugly that you wouldn’t want to fuck them anyway. Case in point, this picture:
Notice the fellow holding the Stop Abortion Now sign with that little pout on his face. Would someone please let him know that he looks like Princess Tiny Meat and that his affected pout is so last season.
Then there’s dour Bob to PTM’s right. He doesn’t look all that enthused and I just bet he’s there at the behest of his nagging pseudo-Christian wife. Poor guy probably never gets a moment of peace and he probably looks forward to death since that would put an end to his wife’s nagging bullshit.
To the lower right we have the obligatory breeder with her spawn. Great, another mouth to feed and I notice they didn’t get a shot of daddy in the picture. Why is that?
And to the lower left we have the requisite middle aged women who think their shit doesn’t stink.
I heap my scorn on the guys more than the women because the guys should fucking know better. It is not our right to say who can and cannot have an abortion. And if this country didn’t have such a fucked up attitude about sex maybe there’d be fewer abortions. Who’s to say. But I think the author of Freakonomics made a very good point, the drop in crime rates of the 90’s and on is directly related to the legalization of abortion.
Because time and again, if you force a woman to carry a child to term that doesn’t want the child the state is loathe to step in after the fact. So the child is born into poverty, and poverty breeds crime. It’s that simple.
And here in Rhode Island our governor (Yes, with a little ‘g’ because this asshole doesn’t deserve the honorific capitalization of his title) Don the Asshole Carcieri is pushing to move welfare services to faith based initiatives. Ok Don, let me ask you something. Other than spending millions on proselytizing and missionary work exactly what have the churches done to help the poor. Oh some run meal programs, and some act as shelters. But cut welfare down and the churches won’t know what to do with all those people and I’m more than just a bit concerned about using faith based because there’s always that recruitment component.
All in all he’s been a horrible governor. Compared to his predecessor Linc Almond, Carcieri is to the right of Hitler.
So sure Don, cut benefits for the poor and the elderly. Then watch the backlash. It’s good thing you’re only in office for two more years because you’ll obviously go down as Rhode Island’s worst governor.
