By Diana May-Waldman,Worldwide Hippies–The Republican and Democratic parties are courting the public and some of us seem to be falling for it. I mean, seriously folks, it’s as plain as the noses on our faces.
I’m pretty sure when evening comes, they sit at home in their recliners, scratching their asses and just thinking up more ways to piss us off and have us turn on another.
Mainstream media has been focused on female reproduction rights, and that issue has escalated when the Komen Foundation said they would no longer support Planned Parenthood. That decision pissed off a lot of people. It kept us angry for days.
Then factor in all the rage surrounding gay marriage. The media even allowed those One Million Morons, oops, I mean Moms, to go after TV celebrity and openly gay, Ellen Degeneres.
Talk about muddying the water. It was so cloudy that we couldn’t see any of the real issues.
Women’s reproduction and gay marriage shouldn’t even be issues. Seriously, knock it off. We already have the right to say what can be done with our bodies. We fought that issue a long time ago, so get your grubby hands outta my pants!
Blah..blah..gays shouldn’t marry because, more blah, blah…don’t you have bigger fish to fry? Don’t give me this crap about traditional this and that and the sanctimony about marriage. People that love one another should be able to get married. Get off your high horse and shut up about it already. Your nothing but homophobes. It’s that simple.
If you want to court me..tease me and please me, speak the language, baby. Turn me on with something real. Whip out that big python of love and really stir the pot.
Tell me what you are going to do for the economy, the environment, education, c’mon baby, tell me what I want to hear. Seduce me with some honesty.
Make me beg for more.
Because, you know, that’s what it feels like. Feels like you are some slick dude in the bar buying me drinks, sweet talking me and trying to convince me to go home and hop in bed with you. You want me to take one for YOUR team.
Truth is you might be able to get away with some people…buy them a couple drinks, sweet talk them and then take them home. Problem is by this time they are too drunk to realize that you can’t even deliver.
Because most of the times, politicians don’t. They don’t deliver. They spew a lot of crap on the platform and keep talking about the same stuff they have been talking about for years.
The stuff they KNOW will divide people and not pull them together.
They throw out their so called “morality” card, which has nothing to do with anything of any real importance when it comes to the state of our country.
And if that doesn’t work, all they need to do is say the word, “abortion” and a huge cat fight is going to break out. Forget about everything else, because now they have pissed us off and have us fighting one another again. They even take it a step further and not only divide us, but have women going against one another and we’re a pretty tough gender.
See, these politicians know how to press our buttons. They know what works. The angry public supported Planned Parenthood and won. Ellen Degeneres saw a lot of support and JC Penney backed her up.
They keep manufacturing the same old, same old and this keeps us distracted from them having to tackle any real issues. And I am not saying that a women’s reproductive rights is not a real issue, I just want them to quit treating us like we are stupid..we already won that one! But, they want to make it appear as if they can take it away from us at any given moment. They keep us scrambling and afraid. If you look at the bigger picture…it was politicians that manufactured and created the whole entire situation with the Komen Foundation..they fell for it and I doubt they will ever be able to recover. They were played.
Then they say it’s okay for gay couples to get married, then attempt to take it away.
It seems to me that every time there is an election, politicians play the same cards. They play the same cards, the media puts their spin on it and before you know it we are all running around in a tizzy.
History has shown that politicians are full of shit. They court the public with nothing but crap and they keep the public fighting one another over issues that shouldn’t even be issues.
I think that proves their impotence…err..ah..I mean, their incompetence.
