If it wasn’t ignorant enough that Harry Reid tried paint the republicans as modern variants of proslavery democrats because they don’t support Obamacare, now we have Barbara Boxer, the liberal sfacime senator from California making the assertion that denying the funding of abortion is the same as denying paying for a man’s prescription for viagra.
Obviously Boxer doesn’t have the facilities to recognize the differences in both the purpose of each and the consequences. Abortion is killing a human being, most often because it’s an inconvenience. In fact, over 97%.
Viagra is for the purpose of making an impotent man have an erection. Generally erections are for the purpose of creating human beings. Most men that use viagra are probably over 40, if not 50. Generally speaking, viagra enhances a man’s self-esteem, not to mention his partner’s appreciation. Just ask Enzyte Bob. 🙂
On the other hand, the consequences of abortion are not so rosey. Many women who get abortions suffer depression, loss, and grieve. They have killed their own and no matter why they got it done, the effects are life long. Many women that get abortions have problems conceiving because of the physical effects of having the abortion because of damage to the uterus.
Neither abortion or viagra have a place in the healthcare debate. One, abortion isn’t healthcare, it is death. The american people shouldn’t have to subsidize death. I also think that if a man want to get a woody, even if he cannot not without pharmaceutical help, he should pay for it himself. Americans don’t need to be responsible for what happens with that either.
This is just another case of cum hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy thinking that the democrats are using because they are desparate. Their backs are to the wall because the american people do not want Obamacare, they don’t want a socialized government of healthcare and in spite of this, the dems are intent on shoving this don our throats, even at the peril of their jobs. The lesson that is lost on them is that emotional appeals are the last refuge of morons.
So, did Boxer act alone, or did she get marching orders from Barack or MoBama? I suppose we’ll never know, but in this case, she was following Hairy Dweeb’s lead and did this one from the heart. Still, she’s wrong, as usual, and again, the dems keep digging for lower lows.
The only conclusion I can make from all of this is that the dems must be real true believers in socialism and marxism. There’s no other way to explain why they would pull these stunts when they have such opposition from the american people. They would rather believe they are right, rather than listening to their constituencies or re-examining their values. Either way, they probably will be done next November. While this may seem to bode well for the GOP, I wouldn’t put all my hope with them either. Not just yet. They have a very bad habit of forgetting where they came from and become stranger lovers as well. If it’s any indication, Palin has hinted at a third party run (she’s within 1% of Obama she’s not even running). While it may devide the GOP for a dem win in 2012, it may also herald a new party such as when Lincoln won in 1860 with the new Republican party. Personally, I think it is time for a new party. Michael Steele & Co. have served us poorly.
