cirby: Democrats: "We need this election to be about something we like. Abortion, for example."

Everyone else: "Jobs. We need jobs. Not that many people really CARE about abortions, and it's not a big priority for the Republicans right now, either."

Democrats: "No - it has to be abortions. We screwed up the jobs thing so bad, and all of our other 'priorities' aren't catching on, so we want all of the reporters to keep asking about abortion. Here - we'll send out Sandra Fluke as a speaker!"

Everyone else: "Yeah, you got a massive ten person crowd for Fluke. Not buying it. Jobs, jobs, jobs."

Democrats: "Man, that Rmoney sure does dodge the abortion question, doesn't he?"

Everyone else: "Because it's not that important, and the legal part of it isn't changing any time soon. Really, ask about jobs."

Democrats: "Look, here's a reporter asking the questions we keep bringing up about abortion..."

Everyone else: "Are you that freaking stupid?"

Democrats: "Um... how about some more bad puns on Romney's name, and a side order of 'he's a rich guy?'"


So when you tell us women that to use benefits we already paid for, we have to ask our boss for a permission slip, despite men being able to get farking Viagra whenever they want, and oh, because religion, it doesn't look like you're just trying to slut-shame us. And then when your major political spokesman decides to spend nine solid hours calling a woman a slut in various ways just because she had the nerve to say this out loud, it's not offensive at all. Oh, and then when there are multiple attacks on Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics, it's just a normal, average move and totally legit.

Wow. Thanks. As a woman, I had no idea what was important to me, and I totally needed you to clear this up for me. I'll be sure to let all my female friends who are completely furious about all of this know. We need some big, strong man to get our pretty little heads on straight, don't we?

/F*ck you. Seriously. You want to talk about abortion? Let's have an entire political party try restrict access to Viagra, colonoscopies, and then get you farking pregnant if you have sex. Then you can talk.

Romney cares about money. If he cared about jobs he wouldn't have sent so many of them overseas.

The thought of a business being started gives him a hard-on. He doesn't want people working, he wants people owning businesses. To him, the thought of someone not wanting to run a business is strange. Some people, most people find a career and are perfectly suited for doing that job, raising a family etc. A lot of people don't want the headache of running a business. A lot of that can be attributed to them not having several millions of dollars sitting in the bank as a safety net like Mitt has always had.

So he is not pro-jobs. He is pro-business, and mostly because businesses are opportunities for farkheads like him to swoop in and deprive them of their value and make even more money.

Pocket Ninja: What Romney understands, subby, and you apparently do not (nor does Obama) is that having jobs teaches women about responsibility. Women who have learned about responsibility do not become accidentally pregnant. Women who do not become accidentally pregnant, in turn, do not require abortions. Therefore, supporting full employment for women in fact renders the entire abortion question moot. It's no wonder that Obama wants to continue making such noise about it.


I think you just broke my brain.

Instead of trying to legislate biology, how about mandatory paternal DNA testing for every pregnancy? Your DNA, your kid, your dime (well, a nickel of every dime). For 18 years. I mean, if they're gonna shove a looky-wand up there anyway...

// yes, I know a TV ultrasound isn't gonna show you the kid's nametag


If we're going to ban abortion, then this is something I actually think we should do. If we're going to force women to raise their baby and live with their mistake, we should force the man to do it as well.

Anyone who pays attention to policy instead of rhetoric knows the GOP jobs plan is talk about jobs prior to the election, then after taking power shift focus to restricting abortion and softening rape laws. This was made very clear by all the Tea Partiers who took office in the 2010 midterms.

See, this is how people get labeled as a Troll. It's been said several times already but there is no way someone paying any attention could possibly think this is true. Birth control is fundamental to women's obtaining equality in society. So yea it's important.

From the comments under the article:



Molly Nyc • 4 hours ago

Point so obvious I shouldn't have to say it: The ability to choose when (and if) she is going to have children has a HUGE economic effect on a woman's life--for decades, and usually until the day she dies. (Men's lives too, less directly.)

It arguably has a greater effect on her economic life than anything else--certainly, a greater effect than the federal deficit or this month's unemployment rate.

And women are right to view any politician who claims to be better for them in economic terms while supporting interference with their reproductive decisions as being utterly devoid of the slightest hint of an iota of an inkling of a clue--economic or otherwise.



Nothing more needs to be said on this issue. Moderator, please close the thread to comments.
