The wars raging on our own soil are not over. Far from it, enhanced by election year fervor…
”1. WAR ON MEN: Give me a break! Is outlawing masturbation because it is a form of abortion about proving a point or is it the religious right doctrines taken to the extreme. Yes, the Senator said it was to prove a point but legislation is regarded as one of the three main functions of government. Since when is legislation submission for the purposes of proving a point permissible? Here’s my bill….the entire surface of the United States, streets, parks, forests, offices, homes, parking garages, pools, farms, walls, hallways, tissues, counters and couch upholsteries be turned into a large fertilization petri dish so any sperm spilled, even accidentally, immediately begins conception. Please review my extensive and thorough 4 minute argument here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0kJHQpvgB8
My government is not a venue or forum for random Senators to prove points in order to gain the popular attention of their constituents. In other words, I agree with David Scott Smith 100%.
2. WAR ON WOMEN: as I said last week: Women’s rights are getting squeezed and rung out of them like yesterday’s dirty sponge water and while this is a travesty in and of itself I can’t help but believe that this is the beginning of many more injustices and changes which will make our heads spin. is this an effort to establish that: your body is not your own? we no longer have the right to choose what we put in our body (from vaginal probes to GMOs so “My body, Their property” is closer than i care to admit)
ie. if a woman is state or corporate property, then so is her fetal matter so doctors can remove the biological materials and use it with legal backing? OR, if a woman is genetically resistant to a specific disease, maybe they can just claim her child and use it for testing?
3. WAR ON OUR BODIES AS SOMEONE ELSE’S PROPERTY: more and more i see actions performed under the umbrella excuse “the good of the many outweighs the needs of the few” How long before the health of the many is worth the death of the one? or are we already there? this isn’t out of the realm of reality, if you disbelieve, go read Mike Chrichton’s 2006 book NEXT – “…and that the physician’s university had sold the rights in Frank’s cells to BioGen, a biotechnology startup company. As the book opens Frank is suing the university for unauthorized misuse of his cells, but the trial judge rules that the cells were “waste” that the university could dispose of as it wished. Frank’s lawyers advise that, even if he wins an appeal, the university as a tax-funded organization can still claim the rights to the cells under the doctrine of eminent domain.” The pharma company then goes after his kids since the genetic material is the same and if they own the father, the own the son (and the sins of the father shall be visited on the sons…the genetic commercial potential tool) M.C. said about this book: “This novel is fiction, except for the parts that aren’t.”
We’ll see…this goes in the category of “i hope i’m wrong but this twisting in my gut is telling me otherwise”
