Tribute. Protest. Concert. Encinitas. October 15, 2011
Is Liberalism the Answer?

Darrell Issa called that college student a what?

What’s with my women friends getting so riled up lately?

I pride myself on keeping up with the political news, especially that Darrell
 Issa, since he may be my new Congressional rep.  But knee deep in my son’s college applications, I’ve been a little distracted lately, I’ll admit.  

I wasn’t surprised that Issa didn’t allow any women to testify on the panel when they discussed religion and contraception. After all, the women usually take care of that contraception thing, right?  Why should he have to bother listening to what women have to say on the matter?  And then he called that college student a slut. Wow! And this guy’s gonna be my new representative? He surely has big you know whats!

I am so excited that a manly man is going to be representing me. Like how Darrell Issa - Manly Man he wouldn’t let anyone testify who had a different opinion from his. I remember while sitting on the throne, reading Kaili Joy Gray’s recent article: "Issa won't be hearing from any of the nearly two dozen religious groups who have no problem with the Obama administration's new health care policy to require insurance coverage of birth control." The list of the uninvited included "representatives from the Catholic Health Association, which is run by a woman and actually runs the Catholic hospitals, nor Catholic Charities, both of which said Friday they supported the President’s plan." Of course a real man wouldn’t need to let these women testify.

All this macho stuff was getting me really excited when I worked with the free weights at the gym. After a couple circuits, and my 10th bench press rep, I thought about how that Issa has real power. Why should he have to apologize when his half-brother Limbaugh joined him in the name-calling? Calling that college student a prostitute and telling her that if taxpayers are going to pay for her birth control we, manly men, wanted something in return!  Like porn films, showing what she really spends time doing in law school. 

Darrel and Rush, those two guys have so much freakin’ power they don’t answer to no one. They got power and it’s legit. Screw anyone who complains! Whining people!  And Issa’s reelection is a sure thing, it’s gotta be. He’s got the majority of North San Diego County blinded by his power, and then he goes to Washington and does whatever the hell he wants. Gets the feds to pay for upgrades to roads that run by buildings he owns; wonder if there’s any kickbacks from those mega corporations he fronts. That man’s gotta love his job.

So I got to thinking, I might actually have a bromance crush on Darrell. Cool, clean, intelligible, who wouldn’t envy this guy?  But calling women sluts and prostitutes? Is this why my women friends are threatening to protest Issa in Shadowridge next week? Issa’s found a way to really take our country back! All the way back to pre-women’s lib!  

So actually I don’t know why I’m filling out these college financial aid forms.  But, I feel like I need to get back to it, just in case Issa doesn’t win. After all, if he wins again, I hear he and his cronies are gonna kill all the financial aid so that only their families and friends can go to college. Tough guy!

Oh, damn, I just got a call from a friend telling me that Issa isn’t the one who used the “S” and the “P”  word against that college student. It was the manlier man, the mouth-piece of the GOP,  Rush. Oh well, so I didn’t get the facts exactly right. Isn’t this why they call it “Political Theater?”  Rush is just  entertainment, right? Stop whining and get back to work!

Wow. Saw this Rush and Darrell appreciation sign at a recent rally:

I will start by saying, I agree that the ENTIRE helathcare law tramples on EVERYONE's rights. Not just religious groups. It allows the government to run our helathcare and decide who should get what care. We are heading toward death panels, people! The government will get to say Grandma, you have a lived a very long life. You are 92 years old and giving you treatment for cancer is going to cost too much for someone who is likely to die soon. Radiation and chemo are too expensive, DENIED .This is what takes place in almost every other Universal Care System . It will no longer be up to the patient, their family or their doctors to make this decision.The picture IS being used as propaganda. Most religious institutions are headed by men, the nature of their religions. No real surprise there.However, I do want to answer to how people that do not believe in birth control having to pay for it is unfair. Or single men having to pay for birth control is unfair. The premise of Health Care Insurance is spreading risk amongst society (this used to be done by communities in the old days men would contribute money to a pot and if one of them died, the pot would be used to assist their family..this is how insurance was born). I currently contribute to the costs of the guy down the hall getting cancer treatment. I do not have cancer nobody in my family has cancer (thank god, knock on wood) but I still contribute premiums to pay for this coverage. Someday it may be coverage I have to utilize, but as it stands now I don't. THAT is just the nature of insurance.If you don't want to pay for BC I understand it stinks, but if I instead, don't get the BC paid for through my health coverage and don't fall into a category where I can get it subsidized, and still cannot afford it, then I have no way to get it. Instead, your premiums will pay for all my prenatal care, all the costs of labor and delivery, and then the 18-26 years of all of my childrens' medical needs. That is CERTAINLY more costly than the initial $2600 that was paid by my insurance company to cover the Mirena that was inserted that will protect me from having children over the next five years, with no monthly cost and no side effects. I am in a committed marriage and enjoy relations with my husband, my body has NEVER been regular (except while on the pill) so natural planning would not work for us, instead should we just not have sex? Kind of unrealistic don't you think?I DO wish that I did not have to pay through my payroll and we all had options to choose our own care (this would create capitalism and real competition which would drive down costs) but until we get the government out of our bedrooms and out of our doctor visits that is not going to happen!
