More specifically, equal opportunity.
Equal is a simple word. Chances are, you are very familiar with it. You probably use it on a regular basis. If you are a student, you may often use the word when verbalizing a math problem. If you are an expert in your field, perhaps you remind people from time to time that they are not your equal. If you are on a diet, you may even put some of it in your coffee, but that is a topic for a different discussion. If you are a liberal, you have no earthly idea as to the real meaning of the word. You think you do, but you have screwed this word up so badly that there is no possible way that you could understand it. That's why it has become the first entry into our Liberal Lexicon. Equal. Dictionary dot com describes it as follows.
Will dog lovers do in Romney?
It seems a major controversy is brewing for the Romney campaign. Apparently, back in the 1980's (that's like a whole other decade) Mitt loaded up the clan in the Family Truckster (a real car that real families take on vacation) and headed to Maine for some r&r (raspberries and rickets). Just a typical American family going on a typical vacation to a typical tourist spot. Right? Nothing to see here. Move along. Accept... At this point I should warn women, children, the elderly, anyone with a weak heart, hearing impairments, or a propensity for anal leakage to turn away... They strapped their dog to the roof of the family truckster !!! Now, for the disclaimer. He was in a kennel, it was turned around backwards to minimize the wind, and they stopped regularly to beat him. Or was it to feed him? I can't remember. But it was one of those. Here is what some idiot animal rights activist had to say about it.
Oh, come on! What was I supposed to call her?
I'm not exactly out on what you would call the front lines of the battle for the rights of transgendered people. Not that I am fighting against them getting whatever they can get, I more or less just don't care because it doesn't effect me. That's right people, as hard as it might be to believe, I didn't go into a doctor and say "make me look this way", I just got lucky and nature made it happen. I was born a man. The obnoxious, egotistical part of it all took a lot of hard work and practice to put into place, but I digress. Where was I? Oh, yeah! Trannygate. So when I heard that a transgendered female (or is it a transgendered male?) had entered into the Canadian Miss Universe Pageant and had been denied, I didn't care. In fact, I didn't think she (formerly he) should be allowed to compete. But the powers that be ultimately changed their mind, so now all is well. Right?
How Mitt Romney may have single handedly brought down Obamacare.
Michelle Bachmann has been the most outspoken critic of President Obama's health care reform legislation. Newt Gingrich has had the toughest stance on what he would do to get rid of it. Rick Santorum has insisted that Romney would be the wrong choice for Republicans because of his own efforts at reforming the health care system in Massachusetts. But Mitt just might have an air of legitimacy in this debate that none of the others have if the Supreme Court shoots down the individual mandate or the whole law, as many experts watching the process are now expecting them to do. To understand why this is the case, one has to look all the way back to 2004.
All good things must come to an end.
How old is Al Sharpton now anyway? Not that there is some magical age at which someone should be forced into retirement or anything, but Al is at that point. I am talking, of course, about his speech in Sanford Florida in response to the killing of Trayvon Martin, a 17 year old kid who went out to buy a pack of skittles and an iced tea who was then shot by a community watch member in their neighborhood. I'm not on a side here, and I don't pretend to know who was right and who was wrong. But when it comes to the words of Al Sharpton, one would never have been able to guess which side he was on if you hadn't been told.
See? I Told You So!
I know what you are thinking. I'm wrong, right? President Obama called Fluke to offer his support. He not only does not agree with Limbaugh, he completely disagrees with him. It is the Republicans that are sexist. It is Limbaugh who attacked all women with his comments. It is President Obama who is indeed standing up for Sandra Fluke, and all women. Rush even admits that his comments were wrong now, so score this as a win for Obama and the left. Right? Perhaps I will. It is a win for Obama most likely, and it is a win for the left. But if it is, what does this say about women in our Country? I found an interesting article over at the Associated Press, and it is chock full of good stuff that 99% of you will miss when you read it. I had the advantage of knowing what the left already thinks of women. I had the foreknowledge that Obama and company already view you ladies as sluts and prostitutes. I set in motion a plan to prove it. I didn't need to, thank you AP.
The best and the brightest?
Just in case you were wondering about how the NCAA policy on using ethnic names as mascots leaves some teams changing their name, and others keeping their old ones, let me break it down for you really quickly. The Florida State Seminoles, named after the Seminole Indians, are allowed to keep their name because they got the Seminole Tribe to sign off on it. The St. John's Red Storm is no longer the Red Men because they weren't named after Indians. They were simply called the Red Men because their uniforms were red. Thus, no Indians could sign off on this one, and uniforms aren't literate, so they had to change their name on the off chance that the fabric was offended by being assigned to a particular gender. The Utah Utes kept their name when Oren Hatch bribed the Ute Indians with a Casino. And the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are still the Fighting Irish because they are white, so who cares if they are offended. Got it? Good.
Will the real feminists please stand up?
Much is being made of the war of words between Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University student who testified in front of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on Monday. Sandra, who is a "Reproductive Rights Activist" was testifying about her schools insurance policies failure to cover contraceptives. She made the claim that 40% of the women at the University reported that this policy has caused them financial difficulties, and went on to explain that contraceptives could cost a student over $3,000 during law school. Of course, this resulted in plenty of jokes from Limbaugh, calling her a slut (for having so much sex) and a prostitute (for wanting someone else to pay for it). Don't get distracted by this back and forth. The real question is "What happened to the feminists?"
