Did the republicans win?

 

Looks like "working" women went big for Santorum in the primaries/caucuses yesterday.

 

The "free and unbiased" female newhead on MSNBC appeared distraught and announced on the news that this vote "really hurt her."

 

Nice to see they are so unbiased in presenting us the news.

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't yet. Shocker.

 

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

 

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

 

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids.

 

5) In Congress, Republicans have a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

 

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.

 

7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

 

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

 

9) Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

 

10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).

what candidate did the Occupy Movement push forward?

 

 

 

no deflections,

 

 

 

after McCain went down in utter defeat I heard a LOT from the fiscal conservatives of the Board that the GOP had lost them,

 

and next time around was gonna be different.

 

If they didn't put forward a true fiscal conservative, they'd be voting for a third party.

 

 

 

 

 

so how are the principled stands coming,

 

as you guys choose between Newt, Romney and Santorum?

The Tea Party has no candidate in this election. That is very clear. These are weak candidates. The question is how weak of a candidate is needed to win this?

 

 

What I find funny is the the occupy people have their candidate--he is in the White House. But they have no idea that their candidate is the best friend that banks and bankers have ever had in history...what a riot.

is the War on Women a real thing?

 

 

 

or just a term that Right wing victims are coining.

 

 

 

it seems to me that Santorum is the figure heard for a religious revival that seeks to roll back the calendar about 60 years and call a do over on Sexual revolution,

 

let's return to a time when sex was something for men to boast of,

 

and bring shame to women,

 

 

 

limit access to abortion,

 

limit access to contraception,

 

create more and more laws that focus on the uterus.

 

 

 

not sure if that's really a war,

 

but it does seem to be something that a good percentage of the GOP is desirous of doing.

Since they overtly swore that President Obama was the force to fix their problems, we can judge them by their words. Are you insinuating that they were speaking dishonestly?

Are you serious? So is nipsip a right-wing victim? The left has grabbed onto this term with ferocity because it draws out emotions...it's a simple term that has so much meaning that it has no meaning. The left loves these loaded words. Hell, they have relied on the term "racism" for decades.

no,

 

I just spent very little time listening to their words.

 

 

 

the Tea Party movement had the backing and participation of Fox News,

 

they were a real "movement"

 

they had a convention,

 

paid six digit speaking fees.....

 

they had right wingers believing,

 

 

 

the occupy movement was a bunch of hippies with sleeping bags.

 

 

 

they had tepid support from people like me,

 

at most we would commit to a "they aren't so bad.... there is a kernel of underlying truth the message they are doing such a bad job bringing forth"

 

 

 

as far as I know there was little real leadership,

 

or a cohesive message,

 

 

 

I never heard of them endorsing a candidate,

 

so when you claimed they had one,

 

I was a bit skeptical.
