When Confronted With Legislation About A Vasectomy Bill, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz Says, “YIKES!”

 

Ted Cruz does NOT want the government controlling the reproductive organs of men, but he has no problem with the government controlling the reproductive organs of women, hence his railing against abortion when women get pregnant thanks in part to the reproductive organs of men, but it is a case of “Yikes!” when the government proposes vasectomies for men in an effort to control a man’s role in reproduction.

Ted Cruz takes aim at Alabama vasectomy bill: “YIKES!”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took aim at legislation recently introduced in Alabama by a state representative that would, if passed, make it mandatory for certain men to get vasectomies – a bill that comes in response to legislation passed last year that seeks to ban abortion in the state.

“Yikes,” Cruz wrote in response to the bill on Twitter on Sunday morning. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!”

The bill would require men to get a vasectomy after the birth of their third child or when they reach 50 years of age; whichever comes first. Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D), introduced the legislation in response to Alabama legislation that prohibits women from seeking and obtaining abortions even in instances of rape and incest. And of course, Sen. Ted Cruz was all FOR the legislation aimed at restrictions on women’s reproductive control over their own bodies, but when it comes to men, well now, that’s a different story. According to Ted Cruz, the government does not have a right to regulate a man’s reproductive system because, uh….well…because…he’s says so.

So you white women who voted for the likes of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who can grab you by your pussy at any time, and also to the white women who donned pink pussy hats and marched in what you considered to be, a protest against Donald Trump, whom you elected to the presidency, get your pink pussy hats out again and go march in front of Ted Cruz’s office in protest of his obvious double standards when it comes to the government legislating women’s bodies while not having the authority to legislate men’s bodies. These are the worthless, misogynistic shits that you gave birth to and so hop to it.  But you won’t because these very same assholes uphold the system of ‘white supremacy’ from which you benefit. And you will screech and wail about how you should have the right to do to your body what you will, but that screeching and wailing ceases when it may affect the system of white supremacy. You’ll shut the fuck up then.

Also, I have covered this issue before and I am going to do something that I have never done and that is to include an entire blog post here and not just post a link because, FINALLY, someone got the memo.

WHAT ABOUT PLANNED FATHERHOOD?

 

I am going to be a mother
but I am just too young.
The father of my child
just stung me with his tongue.

He told me it was my fault.
Protection was for me to use.
How can I tell my family?
Their love for me, I’ll lose.

Oh where can I turn?
What help is there for me?
I heard about Planned Parenthood,
but will they help me out for free?

What services do they offer?
Should I seek advice from them?
Will they blame me for this shame?
Am I the guilty or the victim?

Answers, I need now
before it is too late.
The man can walk away
and leave me in this state.

Where’s the judgment on his ass?
What about Planned Fatherhood?
It takes two to make a baby!
That should be clearly understood!

I am getting real tired of this double standard bullshit! It would seem that Planned Parenthood is all about the ‘female’ role in the making of a baby because the female is the one whose life is going to be turned upside down no matter what she decides to do with the baby. If she decides to have the baby and she is either underage or single, she is going to have to figure out what to do and society will look at her as the slut who couldn’t keep her legs closed while the man who had a hand in this, as usual, gets to strut away like a peacock, on to the next.

If she decides to get an abortion, this is frowned upon because “Oh my goodness! I am just so self-righteous and the good book(Bible)that is burning up in my sinful hands due to all MY sins, tells me that I should stone this fallen woman, this slutty, whore who is no better than she should be! My stars! Back in my day, sluts weren’t running loose, opening their legs to every Tom, Dick and Harry that wished to crawl between them. We wore chastity belts until marriage! What is this sinful world coming to?”

Yep, that about covers the ‘christians’ view of an unwed mother-to-be. Nothing whatsoever is said about the ‘father’ who most definitely had a hand in the reason why the female is pregnant. No one is planning to defund ‘Planned Fatherhood’ because in reality, ‘Planned Parenthood’ is all about the ‘female’ in the equation and don’t we ALL know it. Planned PARENTHOOD, my ass! Planned MOTHERHOOD is what it’s ALL about!

Oh, there are probably some pamphlets about the ‘male’s role in conception’ in the offices of Planned Parenthood, sitting somewhere collecting dust on a shelf in the basement, but the primary focus is on care for the female if she decides to carry the child to full-term or with help in aborting the ‘fetus’.

And now, we have many a republican blow-hard threatening government shut-downs over de-funding Planned Parenthood, but would the same hell-raising antics be displayed if this was all over an agency called, ‘Planned Fatherhood’ where the male’s reproductive role is the primary focus? Of course not! Those hypocritical conservative bastards would sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up! But women’s rights and agencies that help women with regards to reproduction is always up for grabs and great for capturing headlines and getting the so-called ‘christian right’ all up-in-arms.

Here is an idea republican blow-hards, if you want to stop getting all hypocritically bent-out-of-shape over Planned Parenthood, fetal parts selling, abortions and whatnot, then announce the launch of an historically new concept; that of Planned Fatherhood, placing the emphasis on male contraceptives, male sterilization and male education on birth control and the consequences of going without it. Let’s see how many men line up and head through the doors to take responsibility for their role in the creation of life. Because in here, men don’t get a goddamn free pass, not a bit of it!

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

Not one man is featured on this site. As usual, contraception or birth control is ALWAYS aimed at the female. Women have come SO far in the year of no lord 2015!

And now that we are all distracted from the REAL issues of child poverty, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, a fucked up infrastructure, failed leadership, partisan politics, drone wars, refugee crises caused by U.S., police brutality, Mid East policy fuck-ups, a homeless epidemic, income inequality, low-wage part-time jobs, a shrinking jobs base and a host of other serious issues, we can continue to rail over the funding of Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile, Rome burns.


As you can see, I originally posted this blog in 2015  and here we are, 5 years later, still going around in circles. We are still sitting up listening to and putting up with the double standard bullshit hypocrisy from rich, old white men. They are still dictating to us all just what the hell should happen to our bodies. Regardless of whether or not you believe in a woman’s right to choose, remember this, it does indeed, take two to tango.

Men, get that vasectomy and shut the fuck up! And since Ted Cruz approves of the government  legislating a woman’s rights over her own body, then he should have no problem with the government legislating a man’s rights over his body by mandating vasectomies for men in order to stave off the need for women to seek abortions. If it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander.

“Damn, Ted Cruz! You Ain’t Even From Here!!”

candidates for president

Bernie, I wanna vote for you,
but I just don’t feel the BERN!
You said if you don’t get the nomination
then it’s got to be Hillary’s turn!

Hillary, I can’t help but despise.
Your war crimes have me stunned.
You are one foul ass stinking warwhore
and if I slept with you, I’d want a refund.

Dude with the bad comb-over,
to you, I don’t know what to say.
You’re one egotistical piece of shit.
But you as president? That’ll be the day!

Damn Ted Cruz! You ain’t even from here!
How the hell you get away with that?
Canada, come get your native son,
or do you want us to exterminate this rat?

Now, who the hell else is there to vote for?
Give me a name and I will write it in.
And for the love of all that’s unholy,
I hope these assholes don’t have a twin!

As far as I am concerned, all of the above named should be disqualified and therefore, unable to become president for one reason or another. We ALL know why that warwhore Hillary Clinton should be disqualified. Hell! That warwhore never saw a warmonger she wouldn’t crawl into bed with. Bernie Sanders is just playing a game since he’s already let it be known that “He got Hillary’s back!” if he don’t get the nomination. Comb-over is in it for ego purposes and for entertainment for this Roman circus of presidential ‘gladiators’. Cruz is most definitely NOT qualified at all. For fuck’s sake, he is NOT even a natural born citizen. His ass was born in Canada! So, what I would like to know is this. Where are the ‘Obama Birthers’? Why isn’t Ted Cruz’s birth certificate getting the same microscopic examination that Barack Obama’s birth certificate received? All I hear from the ‘Birther Movement’ is the sound of crickets chirping. “CHIRRRRUP! CHIRRRUP!” What the hell is up with that shit???!! Chirrup up a plausible goddamn response to the question, BIRTHERS!

So, who is left? Why, there is the Green Party candidate, but we didn’t hear a peep out of lamestream media about the other parties  and their candidates. Once again, as usual, the corporations pick and choose the president of the United States and we stand in long lines, hoping that our IDs will gain us access to the voting booth so that we can ‘vote’ for the next president. Get real! You ain’t never elected one single goddamn president and if you think you have, all you ‘Dorothys’ out there,  close your eyes, tap your heels together three times and then wake the fuck up!

The Draft Is Being Reinstituted On January 1, 2016!

the draft

Update: March 2, 2017, Sweden Brings Back The Military Draft!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-39140100

The Swedish government has decided to reintroduce military conscription – a move backed by the country’s MPs.

Conscription is being brought back due to the Russian Illegal Annexation of Crimea, the conflict in Ukraine and the increased military activity in our neighborhood.

Thirteen thousand men and women will undergo military tests and will be treated equally.

June 15, 2016 Update: Senate Votes to Require Women to Register for the Draft! June 15, 2016 Update: Senate Votes to Require Women to Register for the Draft!

WASHINGTON — In the latest and perhaps decisive battle over the role of women in the military, Congress is embroiled in an increasingly intense debate over whether they should have to register for the draft when they turn 18.

On Tuesday, the Senate approved an expansive military policy bill that would for the first time require young women to register for the draft. The shift, while fiercely opposed by some conservative lawmakers and interest groups, had surprisingly broad support among Republican leaders and women in both parties.

“The fact is,” said Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona and the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, “every single leader in this country, both men and women, members of the military leadership, believe that it’s fair since we opened up all aspects of the military to women that they would also be registering for Selective Services.”

Still think the U.S. is not gearing up for war? Call that war hawk, John McCain and ask him if his ‘service’ to this country was so great, then why did he have his POW records sealed? But he is sure gung ho about women registering for the Draft.

Veterans voice their disgust for John “Songbird” McCain who spilled his guts to get out of being tortured. There is evidence that McCain received ‘special’ medical treatment from a Soviet physician and other ‘considerations’ to avoid being tortured just so he could come home. 

Yeah! Thank that namby-pamby shit his pants ‘war hero’ for his service of singing like a bird in order to avoid torture. But he has no problem sending America’s daughters into war when there is the potential for them to be captured and tortured. But in all actuality, we should not have a problem getting tortured if we get captured seeing as how we have no problem torturing captives. Just ask those who were tortured in Abu Ghraib by U.S. soldiers and those who are still being tortured in Guantanamo.  You could just consider it to be a case of “what comes around, goes around.”

Again, still think the U.S. is not gearing up for war? Still think this is a joke? Russia has warned the U.S. and NATO, (and NATO takes its orders from the U.S.), to not continue to ignore their warnings and so has China but those warnings fall on deaf ears. The Russians have war weapons that the U.S. cannot even detect until it is too late. Because you see, it does not matter how much we spend on our military, what matters is the technology that is used by the U.S. military and that technology is not up to par.

How to Build a $400 Billion F-35 That Doesn’t Fly

The Pentagon’s embattled F-35 Joint Strike Fighter continues to be plagued with so many problems that it can’t even pass the most basic requirements needed to fly in combat, despite soaring roughly $170 billion over budget. 

Yeah! We’re SO ready for war, they’ve spent $400 Billion of our tax dollars on F-35s that cannot even get off the ground! I guess we are supposed to sit in the cockpit and look tough! That’ll stop the Russians and the Chinese! Right! Ha! Prepare to have your ass handed to you by the Russians and the Chinese and hell! If Bangladesh hears about this, they’ll probably want in on the action seeing as how the U.S. military will be sitting ducks. This is rich!

“EVERY AMERICAN WHO’S PHYSICALLY QUALIFIED SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE DRAFT!Update: Army and Marine Corps chiefs say, “It’s time for women to register for the draft!”  Not only that, but they’ve gone on to say that “EVERY AMERICAN WHO’S PHYSICALLY QUALIFIED SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE DRAFT! This is to include ALL refugees! So, to all the women out there, it’s time to put up or shut up. You’re all for equal rights, now you’ve gotten your wish! You can equally get a grenade up your ass same as your husband, brother, boyfriend, father or uncle. The generals have spoken and now it is not just members of congress on board calling for a reinstating of the draft, but also top military brass.

We are headed for war and soon everybody’s ass will be on the line and in line training for combat duty. And this is also why refugees are welcome in America because the refugees are needed to fight alongside the Americans because if we go to war against China, we are going to need every able bodied or half-ass bodied person available seeing as how America only has 300 million people to pick from and China has 1.357 BILLION people and America has the nerve to tell China to get out of the South China Sea? Yes, war is inevitable. Enjoy yourselves while you still can!

Gen. Mark A. Milley, chief of staff of the Army, and Gen. Robert B. Neller, the Marine Corps commandant, both said they were in favor of the change during an occasionally contentious Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the forthcoming full integration of women in the military. They offered their opinions in response to a question from Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who said that she also is in favor of the change.

“Senator, it’s my personal view that, based on this lifting of restrictions… every American who’s physically qualified should register for the draft,” Neller said.

Due to America’s ongoing war with every other nation and country on the planet, legislation has been introduced by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and co-sponsored by Diane Feinstein of California that would reinstitute the draft on January 1, 2016. Although the bill is in its early stages, support for the bill is rapidly gaining traction and sponsors. The only difference from previous drafts is that the Selective Service System will begin on August 1, 2015 to require all men and women between the ages of 18-75 to register so that the draft can be reinstituted on January 1, 2016.

Although a public outcry is expected, this action is necessary to keep America safe from the terrorists that have gained a major foothold in the Middle East. Also Ukraine is in need of boots on the ground and as NATO is stretched thin in Ukraine and Libya, there really was no choice. A spokesman for Ted Cruz had this to say, “I know that what Ted is proposing will not be popular among the upper echelons of society. We deem it necessary to take such measures to ensure that the U.S. is fully protected. Since the age requirements have been changed, we do not expect that those over the age of 65 will actually see combat. Their job will be to cook and bathe the forehead of the wounded. Those who are 66-75 will clean the weapons that will be used in battle. They will also transport necessary supplies to those who are engaged in combat. There will be no religious, college or first child deferments. No one between the ages of 18-75 will be exempt. A special provision will be attached that will make it legal for all past and present day presidents to take part in the draft if they are within the stated age bracket. Of course, there will be a special detail assigned to all presidents that are forced to take their place on the battlefield. This new provision has been put forward and has backing thanks in part to Diane Feinstein since it was her suggestion that if presidents are so willing to send others into battle that they should also be prepared to take up weapons in defense of America.”

I cannot believe this is happening because was it only yesterday that I was exchanging comments with a fellow blogger on the need to reinstitute the draft and it was like they read our minds. See the conversation below:

I am aiming for reinstituting of the draft and see as you put it, ALL HELL BREAK LOOSE! Wouldn’t that be something? And no excuses for the children of that shit in congress. And since women are now very much in the military picture, let’s see if Obama doesn’t mind his daughter who will be 18 in two years get conscripted. He is fine with sending other peoples children to war, let’s see if he’s ready to send his own.

And quite honestly, presidents shouldn’t be exempt. Obama looks able-bodied, he can go and so can McCain. If he’s got enough spunk to be a war hawk then he can have his ass dragged on over and participate in what he starts. There will be NO deferments for religion or college since religion be damned and who the hell is learning anything? The only thing college students are doing is waiting tables after having amassed a shitload of student loan debt and moved back in with their parents.

So, yes indeed, reinstitute the draft and see how many changes take place. You don’t see no anti-war protesters out in force now, but goddamn it, when the children of the ‘upper crust’ are lying dead and bloodied alongside the abject poverty stricken who see no way out of poverty other than to join the military, well things would change quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry. As long as the poor are the ones that are getting blown to bits and who are coming back all fucked up, nobody gives a goddamn, but let’s up the ante and make war, equal opportunity, yes indeed. None of this bullshit about “my back is bothering me and I can’t go!” Put a goddamn back brace on and get out there on the battlefield. No more “I can’t fight a war because I need to preach some Mormon bullshit in France!” Fuck that! Preach some Mormon bullshit to your fellow comrades while you’re running with a grenade launcher in hand and if your motherfucking ass stumble and fall at least the last thing you did was fucking pray, so you good than a motherfucker. That was for Mitt Romney that never did see a minute of fighting in Vietnam because he claimed to be much needed in France preaching Mormon bullshit to the French, all holed up in le château.

And Dick Cheney sought five draft deferments during the Vietnam War, four was for going to college and one was because someone actually allowed his nasty ass to hump them and produce a baby and so he claimed, ‘new father’ deferment. He fucking bent over backwards to not go and fight in a war but yet he and Bush both lied and got over a million people killed in the Iraq war all over a lie! And people can’t see the hypocrisy of these cowardly assholes? They can’t see that Dick Cheney is a mealy mouthed liar and lower than a snake’s belly when he can speak of torturing people and yet his namby-pamby ass was scared too shitless to don a military uniform and get in the fray? For the love of …..!!!!

If people can’t find jobs, it is because the government is deliberately making sure along with corporations that there are no jobs available for everyone that wants to work and therefore, they make people have to think about signing up for the military when there would be plenty of work for all if America would concentrate on the neglected shit that’s been neglected for decades and actually fix up this shithole. That would put millions of people to work but no, we are more interested in starting wars in foreign lands and sign on the dotted line and here’s your military gear, now head the fuck out! I’d rather clean toilets and bend over fields of strawberries and green peppers than pick up a weapon and have some innocent person’s death on my hands. I understand poverty, hunger and not having medical insurance, all too well. I have been there but never did I think of joining the military as a way out of my situation. There are just some things that I am not willing to do and being a hired killer, prostituting myself to the warmongers, ain’t something that I’m prepared to live with on my conscience or die for.

And now, I expect that the pissing and moaning over all of this will begin!
