Politico Comes To Sarah Palin's Defense?

Uh, no.

Margaret Thatcher's?

Not even

When Robert Massie asks, "Why is it that women of extraordinary achievement or who speak out strongly about their beliefs are often attacked and demeaned by certain men?," he doesn't mention either woman.

Odd.

In fact he can only come up with two names of women of extraordinary achievement or who speak out strongly about their beliefs and who are often attacked and demeaned by certain men.

Catherine the Great.

And Sandra Fluke.

And I don't think it's a joke.

Idiotic.  But not a joke.

Why Not Free Tampons?

I'm inclined to suggest that there's a nefarious reason behind the Obama administration's call for "free" sterilizations being provided young American women (see "Free Sterilizations Must be Offered to All College Women, Says HHS").  After all, his kind has a track record in such matters.  It was the progressives among us back in the 30's - really smart liberals just like our really smart president - who proposed similar progressive government mandates - intended to rid the world of (a) poor people, (b) stupid people, and (c) Negroes. (Yes, it was considered "progressive" to support the sterilization of (d) all of the above back then by the enlightened among us, until Adolf Hitler adopted their assumptions and propositions and cranked up the gas chambers.)  (See the history of Eugenics.)

But I'm going to give our president the benefit of the doubt and assume that he simply wants to get reelected.  Reelected by giving people free shit.  Particularly "progressive" women who seem to expect free shit being given to them.  See Sandra Fluke.

You may remember her.  She thinks her contraceptives ought to be free.

By gum, The United States government agrees! (see reelection ploy above).

Now that same government wants sterilizations to be free.

I wonder ...

Why not Kotex, Barry?

Not all women use contraception.  And few will want to be sterilized.  But they all use feminine health and hygiene products at some point in their lives.  Make 'em, free, dude!  Win over the female vote!

So what if it is not the role of government to do so.  (See Constitution of the United States of America.)  It gets your skinny, worthless ass reelected.  And that's all that counts.

That, unfortunately, is really all that counts, isn't it?

Advice For Romney

You won't get union support.

But you can easily win over the union membership.

Even with all the pro-Obama media hype, the U.S. still has millions fewer jobs than it did when God, Jr. took over in 2009.

Jobs, Mitt.  Paychecks.  Opportunity.  Dare we say it?  Hope.

Stick to the issue that matters most to people - our economic future - and you'll send that socialist back to academe, where he belongs.

Alec Baldwin: 'Oil Whore' James Inhofe Should 'Retire to a Solar-Powered Gay Bar'

We Can't Let These People Win

Okay, I'm in the middle of The Hunger Games.  That's part of my problem, I suppose.

But beyond that, I was raised to believe that totalitarianism is a bad thing.  And history has proven my upbringing to be absolutely right on that.  It fails wherever it's been tried.

That doesn't mean, however, that there aren't ignorant, self-interested scientists out there - some in high places - who think it might be a neat idea - no, an imperative - that, because of the looming threat of "global warming" (or whatever they're calling it today), we need a planetary government power structure entrusted with "heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers."

Read The Hunger Games.  Read 1984.  Read Darkness at Noon.  Read Gulag Archipelago.  Read Fahrenheit 451.

Be afraid.

Be prepared.

Lock and load.
