Off The Wall…
There they go again, doing their best to sound brilliant and coming off like a bunch of dolts. Gossiping like high school kids, making ignorant statements concerning women, treating the American public as if we’re stupid. The clown show is neverending with the loons on the left in Congress.
First up is the adnoidal Harry Reid who heard from someone, whose name he can’t mention, who might be an investor, Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in 10 years. This secret source of earth shaking information, which Reid brought up for public knowledge, couldn’t possibly know about Romney’s tax returns. But, Reid put it out there in hopes you are stupid enough to think it might be true. We could talk about Reid’s land deal in Nevada which made him a bunch of money through his legislative position and insider information. Now which man do you think is more ethical? Maybe Reid should release all the information that netted him a nice profit. How would that look?
About a month ago, Reid said, someone who had previously invested with the venture capital firm called him to say that the former Massachusetts governor and presidential hopeful hadn’t payed taxes for a decade.
“Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years,” Reid said he was told, according to The Huffington Poston Tuesday.
Reid said he wasn’t sure if the tip was true or not.
“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” Reid said. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?”
Now comes Tom Harkin, another Senator on the left, who thinks women are just too darn bitchy, PMSing all over the place, unable to work, having major problems coping with every part of their lives if birth control is not free and available to all.
Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) today justified what the Catholic bishops of the United States have unanimously called an “unjust and illegal mandate” that forces Catholic business owners to provide coverage for free sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs because, Harkin said, some women need birth control pills to deal with menstrual pain.
“There are many women who take birth control pills, for example, because they have terrible menstrual cramps once a month, some of them almost incapacitated, can’t work,” said Harkin. “I know of young women myself who, because of this, aren’t able to work and be productive, and it’s prescribed by their doctor.”
I’ve got news for this sexist asshat, women have been dealing with their lives for years. We helped build this country, fought for this country, defended this country, pioneered this country. Since when do we need Congress to help us figure out our medical problems? We have doctors with actual medical degrees who can advise us. Congress needs to stop minding everyones business and do the business that Congress was put in place to do, which has nothing to do with PMS or birth control. But, like many on the left, they really do think you aren’t capable or intelligent enough to handle your life without them. Insufferable arrogance!
Chick-fil-A is having the best day ever….thanks to people who actually believe in free speech, even if they disagree with a person’s ideology.
For those like John Mohler, 50, of Thornton, Colo., eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday was about defending free speech. Mohler said he doesn’t share Cathy’s belief–only his rights to air them.
“I’m not sure I agree with his position on gay marriage,” said Mohler, who drove to Englewood from downtown Denver on his lunch break. “But I applaud the owner for speaking his mind, and that’s why I’m here.”
In Chicago, throngs of supporters flocked to the lone Chick-fil-A, where the line of customers snaked through the entrance and around the corner. . . .
Further up the line, Jessica Cather, 29, Dana Haskins, 42, and Sarah Touhy, 43, all stressed that though they support same-sex marriage, they also support the right to believe what anyone wants to believe.
“We support tolerance on both sides,” Haskins said.
“Just because they don’t support gay marriage, it doesn’t make them a bad company,” Touhy said.
Another patron solicited donations to buy lunch for Alderman Joe Moreno, who made headlines last month for opposing a Chick-fil-A in his ward.
Linda Smith, 54, didn’t have time for the line. Instead, she gave someone else in line her money to spend to show her support. Smith said, “It doesn’t matter what the president of the company’s views are, as long as they don’t discriminate in hiring,” Smith said.
While pols don’t really get it, everyday Americans do. We are who we are, nothing will change that. Respecting the rights of all of us to say what we believe in, whether we disagree with those beliefs or not, is part of what makes us the greatest country on earth. Too bad our political betters have lost sight of that concept. Remember, their rights end where yours begin, they have no power unless you give it to them.
