Texas anti-abortion bill says it protects women, but then arrests them if they protest..

#at=24


"As Senator Wendy Davis told MSNBC's Chris Hayes, "They [Senate Republicans] have over-ridden and made a mockery of all of the rules we run by in this state...What we saw yesterday was injury to that insult where Senate rules became meaningless."

Texas Republicans pushing this bill claimed it was about "protecting women" but it was the same men who sent in a drove of DPS officers to clear the Senate gallery of women who weren't going to let their rights be taken away quietly. These are the same men who now are trying to equate these women to terrorist or occupy protesters. This display of civil disobedience is no different than the student sit-ins that ultimately led to major advances in civil rights for minorities in the early 1960s.

Now Texans must endure further posturing of the legislature as Gov. Perry has called a 2nd special session putting the abortion issue back on the call.

The problem as Paul Begala pointed at a Battleground Texas fundraiser is that "Texas isn't a red state, it's a non-voting state."

1. As I said yesterday....

 

...I keep hoping one of these confrontations will prove to be THE spark that ignites a real and nation-engulfing backlash against the PTB. What'll be really comical when this comes to pass, will be all the gun-toters coming to the RESCUE of their "oppresive guvament" once the reasonable folks have had enough!

2. What the matter officer? Doesn't your taser work?

The "pride of Texas" there charged that little old lady with the felony of assaulting an officer. I kinda lost track, is it still just the women seeking an abortion or is it now every woman who comes in contact with a Texas republican gets a vagina ultrasound? I hope the LOL will be alright.

There was a time when there were Southern Gentlemen. I wonder why conservatives didn't conserve that tradition.

5. Not to long ago Perry and Texas forced a money-making scheme on young girls via HPV vaccine.

It was probably due to the fact that their 70 year old grandmothers said no to that too..

6. Like Perry and the Texas Re-thug-lcans, I too find the female body fascinating.

In my youth all of them were interesting. Since my marriage I have done a lot of study of a single specimen.

But at no point, did I ever want to conduct Frankenstein-like medical experiments on them.


WHAT DA FUCK, YOU ASSHOLES, STOP MAKING THE REST OF US LOOK BAD.

3. It protects male power and oppresses women.

 

And that's what you see happening there.
