Skip to comments.2016: The women’s election (Bias so thick you can cut it with a knife)

Governor Rick Perry of Texas made little impression on the 2012 election.
Once billed as a class act, he emerged as a comic turn. There was the Ill never forgetwhatshisname debate flub when he couldnt remember one of the Cabinet departments he was committed to abolishing was Energy. And there was his tired and emotional stump speech in New Hampshire when, well, Im not quite sure what he was talking about. Perhaps it was his Dean Martin impression.
But Perry is sure to make a strong impression on the outcome of the 2016 election. When he signs into law the Texas anti-abortion measures, he will spark a womens revolt that is sure to reverberate across the nation.
The 2012 contest left the Republican Party backed largely by old white men. The 2016 election is likely to be dominated by womens issues. When the Coen Brothers set their movie No Country for Old Men in the high desert of West Texas, they could not have imagined their title would become an election slogan.
The proposed new Texas anti-abortion law, sure to be passed before long, does not just restrict itself to preventing terminations after 20 weeks, a practice that is rare in any case. (The number of abortions conducted after 20 weeks is just 1.3 percent.) The measure goes well beyond, swamping clinics with so many regulations that 37 are expected to close, leaving only six to serve 13 million Texan women in a state that is 773 miles wide and 790 miles long. In addition, women who have been raped may not cite that as a reason for wanting an abortion.
The thousands of women who descended on the Texas state capitol in Austin last week to register their opposition to the bill....

I would put forth a guess that the average young woman doesn’t know anything earlier than what occurred in the 90’s...let alone a 1973 Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade...we need to get back to a nation that starts taking responsibility for our actions and not going the easy route of infanticide. A nation that allows babies to be slaughter is a nation on a direct path to hell!
I am convinced the nation’s fate is on the knife-edge of the decisions of an electorate that will vote itself whatever it sees as immediate gratification. And very, very little else matters. Maybe “coolness”. History starts today, you know, that Pol Pot kind of thing. It’s more important to laugh at “retards” on Bill Maher than to contemplate the cynical, deliberate destruction not only of what came before, but what is to be. The more the future is carved and shaped into a low-opportunity, depressive, bleak state of ennui, the more important it will be to not bring children into it for the educated elites. And so we will have to bring millions of unwashed into it, to take the places of children unborn or, aborted. Abortion was made important in the era of the 70’s, which also was quite a bleak era in its way and it surely seemed like America was in serious decline. Now, it will only be made more important, if not noble.
Too bad none of us here is smart enough to see what these geniuses see, huh?
Look athow many future Democrats will be born now. The libs should be cheering...
By the time they see what their progressive tendencies have wrought; that they have voted themselves into their own prison of diminished rights, possibilities and for many, poverty, it will be way beyond too late.
I’m with on that...I watch commentary on the main News like Fox, CNN, and the rest...and that little voice in my head that has always kept me safe isn’t whispering anymore — it’s yelling for me to GET OUT and RUN!
It’s apparent to actually see, as you stated, the geniuses or elites and what they have and want to accomplish...I’m one of those that works - saves - dreams of a retirement...but I also am one who has been on a battlefield teaming with insurgents - the walking dead - the idiot commands...and I keep going back to survival...I’ve experienced the recklessness of policy decisions made on the highest levels and what chaos it reaped in foreign lands - I was fortunate to have fellow brothers-in-arms there that saw the same where we took care of each other...at the moment - laws - regulations - and the fear of being singled out and arrested by a consuming govt. is keeping everyone in check!
When 2014 rolls in and NOV brings new elections...that will be one big RED indicator where the US will be heading!
“I am convinced the nations fate is on the knife-edge of the decisions of an electorate that will vote itself whatever it sees as immediate gratification. And very, very little else matters. Maybe coolness.”
That electorate voted twice for high unemployment, inflation, and mass imiigration; apparently they aren’t learning.
They will continue to demand more and more privileges until the whole thing collapses.
Then they'll become the "wife" of some local strongman.
Gee, this idiot apparently didn’t fact check—”In addition, women who have been raped may not cite that as a reason for wanting an abortion.” Women don’t have to give any reason for having an abortion, and they usually don’t have a reason for it!
Furthermore, why the big outcry about having to have the abortion before 20 weeks? Once a woman decides to have unprotected sex with the intent of aborting, isn’t 20 weeks sufficient time to get around to doing the dastardly deed?
The author is a textbook example of how libs live inside their minds, not in reality. Support for abortion is dropping; the number of abortions is dropping; finding a bunch of U of Texas students to act as a mob is easy to do; Perry and State AG Greg Abbott both crush Ms. Wendy in polls; 62% of Texans support the bill; 14 other states have the same bill. The wheels are coming off the Obama agenda at every level.
But the mindless airheads are still out there. They actually believe the crap they have stuffed their minds with. There is no rational thought allowed. The propaganda is so entrenched there is no way it can be dislodged.
It becomes an ego thing, a life support system. If removed, What’ll I do? sort of thing.
I know one......... she is a living, breathing system of college educated nothingness
They don't even notice when their candidates do a 180 on issues to pander to their shifting tastes, tastes that are largely shaped by mass media/pop culture. At this point, I don't think the decline is reversible.
