What about standing up to the alt right, Trump, Nazis, Scheer and people too stupid to think before they open their mouths? Is this a radical notion. Are we going to become the next generations that turned a blind eye to the evils of bigoted arseholes?
Had people thought before voting in 1933 perhaps World War Two would never have happened? Next time you find yourself in a voting booth vote for anything but the right wing mouthpiece that promises a return to older values rooted in fantasy and hidden agendas.
I wish I could express how thankful I am to the men and women that saved the world during world war two. It was a bloody horrific mess that thousands gave their lives so that I might be born in the comfort and safety of relative peace. My heart aches when I see those veterans, old and frail now, with tears in their eyes as memories take over.
I Thank you; and we shall be eternally grateful.
I have decided that there is no room in my life for bullshit; I have consummed enough over the years. What with British Tories then Canadian Fascists and raging lunatics in the Whitehouse it is time I looked to my own needs. So I will become a Poutinist accompanied by the occasional Milk Shake concerto.
Alabama, the quintessential southern state full of bigots, right wing populists and religious freaks, has proved this value beyond a shadow of a doubt. Abortion! there is no legal reason sorry almost no legal reason a woman can get an abortion. Indeed it is almost a certainty that if a woman leaves the state to get an abortion she could be tried and sent to prison. Not for rape nor incest can any woman of any age get an abortion. And, once again a panel of men made these decisions claiming they hope it will be challenged in the supreme court ergo Roe .V. Wade. In the meantime women are made to suffer as well as children. It is no exaggeration that there are children being denied free unfettered access to abortion.
Why do Americans hate their women and children so much? Why is it that all republicans, conservatives and religious fundamentalists indulge this abortion fetish? Why do they constantly harp one about it? What is behind their agenda?
As Samantha Bee once said, No body questions a mans right to a vasectomy.
The one thing most Europeans agree on is their loathing of the USA. The arrogant, spoiled children of the universe… ill informed, bigoted and stupid people. However, the blessed Yank made good movies, from time to time, so we tolerated them. Even so there were two things that continued to irk. 1) The attitude that they won, for us, both World Wars on their own and ignoring the fact that their money played the larger part in this endeavour. Then there is number Two; Constant reference to their president as the leader of the free world. That more than anything rankled the ruff.
I now live in North America and for the longest time that reference continued to bother me as the supreme U.S. arrogance. Logic later suggested to me that this was no idle claim I came to believe this to be true. Well, until 2016 I believed the claim.
If they want to continue with this notion then clearly we all need to have the vote; a say in who straddles the pink podium. I dont really like being governed by someone I have no opportunity to vote for. This I now see as the free world’s opportunity to pay back the U.S. for all their “altruistic” generosity. Obviously they need all the help they can get, 2016 is testament to that fact.
