Karen Pence Campaigns For GOP House Candidate Who Longs For Return To Criminalization Of Homosexuality

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/10/11/karen-pence-campaigns-for-gop-house-candidate-who-longs-for-return-to-criminalization-of-homosexuality/

“In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity.”

Dem Senator Says GOP Is Restricting Viewing Report On Kavanaugh: Only One Copy, One Hour To See It

“Get this — one copy! For the United States Senate,” he said. “That’s what we were told. And we were also that we would be given one hour for the Dems, one hour for the Republicans. Alternating. We tried to reserve some time to read it. That is ridiculous,” he said. “One copy?!”

Graham Tells Booing Audience “Boo Yourself”

Lindsey is losing it, telling people he doesn’t care what they think, and to “boo yourself”.  He has all the signs of having a deep crush on Kavanaugh, and they both are getting unhinged.   Hugs

Graham Tells Booing Audience “Boo Yourself”

A Washington, D.C., audience booed Sen. Lindsey Graham on Wednesday after he said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been treated poorly by those who oppose his confirmation. “I thought Kavanaugh was treated like crap,” the Republican South Carolina senator said at the Atlantic Festival. The audience booed Graham’s comments. “Well, boo yourself,” Graham shot back.

She shouldn’t have to!

Filed under: Dealing With Abuse, My Life and Rants, News, Reason, Sad, Sex — Scottie @ 20:50

I am not going to win many partisan points with this post, but it is an important post based on empathy.  Recently on a Sunday news program White House advisory Kellyanne Conway blurted out that she also had been sexually assaulted.    She has now had to forcefully tell news organizations she wont be talking about it any more.  She also claims to have gotten threats over it.

Stop it.  Just stop it people.   We ask people to believe or give the benefit of the doubt to someone when they come forward and tell what happened to them.   It is hard enough to tell we don’t have to make it worse.   I started to read some of the comments on her saying she did not want to talk about it and they were nasty toward her.  Yes it seems she , like other republicans , doesn’t have much empathy for others who have been sexually assaulted but that is no excuse to treat her as we wouldn’t want any other person who suffered a sexual assault treated.  If we ask for understanding of someone who is dealing with their abuse, shouldn’t we extend that to her as well.   We are the first ones to blame the republicans for how they are treating the women coming forward about Kavanaugh, so why would we do it to her?  

As for talking about her assault, some people simply can’t.  Some can but have to have set conditions.   Some can but if they do it really tears the scab off a deep wound and causes a lot of after shocks to their system.  Not to put too fine a point on it, it rips me up to talk about my abuse and I only do so when I think I will explode if I don’t.   I also have mention my abuse in a discussion in a spur of the moment or because it just slipped out, and while I do not regret it coming out I was not prepared to have a discussion on it.    Even writing this out has been hard and caused me to have memories I do not want to remember and I will have to deal with.  

So no she shouldn’t have to talk about it, and after being told she doesn’t want to talk about she shouldn’t be badgered about it.  It is not right she is badgered about something so personal and hurtful regardless of party or her job.  I am disappoint people don’t understand no means no about sexual assault, and it also means no when they don’t want to talk.  No one should be forced to relive those times, those things.  Lets not become what we fight against.   Thank you.  Hugs.  Scottie

To the Young Men and Women of America, From the GOP

Filed under: Dealing With Abuse, Education, Gender, Greed, Harm, Health, Ideas, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 22:19

An incredibly powerful written work.  Please go read it.  It puts this whole thing in perspective.   Hugs

https://johnpavlovitz.com/2018/09/28/to-the-young-men-and-women-of-america-from-the-gop/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=johnpavlovitz

To the Young Men of America,

You can do whatever you want to young women.

You can disregard their humanity,
force yourself on them physically,
ignore their pleas to stop,
proceed without consent,
hurt them,

humiliate them,
indulge your urges,
treat them as property,
and silence, slander, and intimidate them after the fact.

You can do this as often as you like, to as many young girls as opportunity and your desires allow.

We will have your back (providing you are white, wealthy, and one day vote Republican.)

We will marshal our every resource of finance and position and privilege in protecting and defending you.

 

And to Young Women of America,

You don’t matter.

Not your trauma or your pain,
not the innocence you lose,
not the damage you sustain,
not the scars you are marked by,
not the nightmares you are haunted by,
not the peace you no longer find, 
not the confidence that leaves you,
not the fear that is ever present,
not the shame that you cannot shake,
not the silence you are imprisoned by.

We simply do not see you as valuable—at least not as valuable as the status quo we’re protecting or the legislation we’re coveting or the religion we’re perpetuating or the votes we’re needing.

You are the acceptable collateral damage of our misogyny and entitlement.

Your body, your emotional health, and your sense of safety—simply aren’t worth more than a Supreme Court seat.

Of course, should a pregnancy somehow be created by your violation, we will vigorously demand that you be forced to carry it, even if it exacerbates your pain and magnifies your despair. After all, we urgently need to perpetuate the appearance that we are pro-life—just not yourlife.

One more LIE out of many

Further, the texts show Kavanaugh may need to be questioned about how far back he anticipated that Ramirez would air allegations against him. Berchem says in her memo that Kavanaugh “and/or” his friends “may have initiated an anticipatory narrative” as early as July to “conceal or discredit” Ramirez.

Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath that the first time he heard of Ramirez’s allegation was in the Sept. 23 article in The New Yorker.

Kavanaugh was asked by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, when he first heard of Ramirez’s allegations. Kavanaugh answered: “In the New Yorker story.”

Finally, Berchem is concerned about what she witnessed at the 1997 wedding where Ramirez and Kavanaugh were both in the wedding party.

According to the information Berchem provided, Ramirez tried to avoid Kavanaugh at that wedding of their two friends, Yarasavage and Kevin Genda.

Ramirez, “clung to me” at the wedding, Berchem wrote to Yarasavage in a Sept. 24th text message. “She never went near them,” a reference to Kavanaugh and his friends. Even in the group photo, Berchem wrote, Ramirez was trying to keep away from Kavanaugh.

And yet the spokesperson for republican committee leader Grassley says:

George Hartmann, a spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said that “the texts from Ms. Berchem do not appear relevant or contradictory to Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony.”

Well, which is it, you either care or you are a republican and don’t care.

With more immigrant children in detention, HHS cuts funds for other programs — like cancer research

These are children.  Notice in all the pictures I have seen where the children are moved around, they have to walk single file like convicts.   Look at the pictures.  These are little kids living this life.   Kids that reach the age of 18 are transferred to adult detention / jail.   This is on the people of the US, we will be remembered for this in history.   Hugs

https://www.yahoo.com/news/exclusive-immigrant-children-detention-hhs-cuts-funds-programs-like-cancer-research-230259583.html

In a letter sent to Sen. Patty Murray, D.-Wash., and obtained by Yahoo News, HHS Secretary Alex Azar outlined his plan to reallocate up to $266 million in funding for the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30, to the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

Nearly $80 million of that money will come from other refugee support programs within ORR, which have seen their needs significantly diminished as the Trump administration makes drastic cuts to the annual refugee numbers. The rest is being taken from other programs, including $16.7 million from Head Start, $5.7 million from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program and $13.3 million from the National Cancer Institute. Money is also being diverted from programs dedicated to mental and maternal health, women’s shelters and substance abuse. 

According to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement obtained by Yahoo News, there were 13,312 immigrant children in federal custody as of Wednesday, Sept. 19, with ORR’s existing facilities at 92 percent capacity.

“This is not a story about a historically large surge in arrivals,” said Mark Greenberg, a former official with HHS’s Administration for Children and Families. “The story is fundamentally about a significant slowdown in children being released from care.”

In March, Yahoo News reported that a new policy requiring ORR Director Scott Lloyd to personally approve the release of certain children resulted in many remaining in custody longer, even after a proper sponsor had been approved. Lawyers representing the children and immigration advocates said they were being falsely suspected of gang affiliations. More and more aged out of custody and were transferred to adult detention facilities on their 18th birthdays. In response to a lawsuit by the New York Civil Liberties Union, a New York federal judge in June determined that Lloyd had violated the federal Administrative Procedure Act by enacting the policy almost immediately upon being sworn in as director, “with no record demonstrating the need for change,” and ordered him to halt it.

Atheism / religions / WTF

Imaginary creatures can do anything they want.

When you’re so desperate to defend pedophiles, you reveal you don’t know anything about your own superstitions.
Meanwhile Catholics - and Xtians - on Twitter are bending over backwards to blame an imaginary boogeymonster, rather than the humans who...

But forgot to tell his son-self that diseases aren’t caused by demons.
