"Romney Ryan favor personhood, this would make contraception illegal."
Since when?
"He is such an absolute insult to American women that it is beyond comprehension"
Speaking of an insult to women, did you hear about the women who dressed up like vaginas?
Both said they support personhood.

This would make certain types of contraception illegal.

It would curtail curtail avenues of fertilization techniques.

It would put women at higher risks during pregnancy.

What Romney Didn’t Say About the Bush Record

Ezra Klein notes what Romney didn’t say in his response when asked what his biggest differences with Bush were:

Notice what he didn’t say there. He didn’t say that Bush had gotten anything wrong before leaving office as one of the most unpopular presidents in history. He didn’t say,“You’re right to be skeptical of Republicans, because we didn’t live up to your expectations last time.” He said, rather,“Have you heard about my five-point plan?”

What’s remarkable about Romney’s answer was that he didn’t even acknowledge or endorse the questioner’s main concern, which was that the Bush administration presided over major debacles that are still adversely affecting the U.S. The questioner was worried that Romney would repeat Bush’s errors, and he responded by rattling off a campaign agenda that Bush could and did run on. Like Bush, Romney talks about fiscal conservatism, but Romney gave the woman no reason to believe he would govern differently. It was Romney’s “just trust me” argument all over again, and he failed to acknowledge that one of the reasons so many people don’t trust him is that he doesn’t seem to have many major differences with Bush.

Little Red Hen 2012

"Who will help me plant my wheat?" asked the little red hen.

"Not I," said the cow.

"Not I," said the duck.

"Not I," said the pig.

"Not I," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself." She planted her crop and the wheat grew and ripened.

"Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen.

"Not I," said the duck.

"Out of my classification," said the pig.

"I'd lose my seniority," said the cow.

"I'd lose my unemployment compensation," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so she did.

"Who will help me bake the bread?" asked the little red hen.

"That would be overtime for me," said the cow.

"I'd lose my welfare benefits," said the duck.

"I'm a dropout and never learned how," said the pig.

"If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen.

She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see. They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share but the little red hen said, "No, I shall eat all five loaves."

"Excess profits!" cried the cow..(Nancy Pelosi)

"Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck.(Barbara Boxer)

"I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose.(Jesse Jackson)

The pig just grunted in disdain..(Harry Reid)

And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

When the farmer (Obama) came he said to the little red hen, "You must not be so greedy."

"But I earned the bread," said the little red hen.

"Exactly," said Barack the farmer. "That is what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle."

And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful, for now I truly understand."

But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread because she joined the 'party' and got her bread free. And all the Democrats smiled.'Fairness' had been established.

Individual initiative had died but nobody noticed; perhaps no one cared so long as there was free bread that 'the rich' were paying for.

And perhaps....this is the end..........

And the next week, there was no bread, or anything else to eat. So, they all starved equally.

EPILOGUE

Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.

Hillary got $8 million for hers.

That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight years repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember anything.

DO WE LIVE IN A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?

Last week, conservative pseudo-intellectual Dinesh D’Souza was featured on a conference call for Rick Scarborough’s 40 Days to Save America. D’Souza said Obama is “attacking the traditional values agenda” by supporting marriage equality and abortion rights, arguing that “Obama doesn’t like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism.” However, D’Souza’s rhetoric about “traditional morality” may be undermined by the fact that at a recent conference he reportedly shared a hotel room with a woman other than his wife, whom he introduced as his fiancé. D’Souza later admitted to getting engaged to his girlfriend even though he is still married, but denies sharing a hotel room with her at the conference.

Now a startling new poll even has Romney performing the ultimate miracle: the parting of the blue states, winning the Jewish vote by a healthy 44% to 40%!”

No, I think not. You would have done better had you not started your shyte with me yesterday. Uncalled for and unprovoked.

Like you asked: "We see where it goin'".
And like I replied: "Where I take it. And where you take it".
Well, you took it down the wrong road. Because you like confrontation, you're a hostile person full of hate and fury ...

And, hey, I'm not tolerating your BULL-SHYTE. Nobody is anymore.
Or haven't you noticed? You've lost your edge.

I'm not "playing" with you. I tried to warn you when you asked what are my motives.

"Nothing is as soft as water.
Yet, who can withstand the raging flood"?

You don't own shyte. Not even your own emotions or demented mind.
Which you have control over neither.

O, and by the way, Jeet Kune Do coupled with Isshin-Ryu, best style of mixed Martial Arts and street fighting styles.
You're still yammering about Wang Chung styles.

I am, of course, using allegory.

"Fill yourself with desire and see only illusion, empty yourself of desire and understand the great mystery of things".

I doubt you can grasp The Philosophical concept of fighting.

Insane is voting for Romney/Ryan who want to take womens rights away that were fought so hard for.
Let me guess; you're another inadequate woman hater, right?
When you hear this kind of talk, do you get all excited in anticipation that a woman won't be your boss? That women can be raped and forced to have the rapist baby? You'll finally feel like a man, even though you'll never be one?
Real men love women, support them, protect their rights. Democrats.
