Stand Down!

Updated on November 3, 2017

Cry Me a River

Phony Outrage

For 5 years now, I've been listening to all these people cry about "rights".

Rights, which don't seem to register when someone else is losing them!

Forgive me if these self-righteous cries for "my rights" fall on empty ears.

Where were these people when rights were being taken from others?

And which, in many cases...they agreed with! Why is this?

I will tell you why: Like everything else, "rights" are a concern only when applicable to you.

And since that is the case.....I can only laugh when the former cheerleaders now cry foul.

How's it feel people, how's it feel?


Here is a short list of all the "rights" that have been lost since 2010.

Read em and weep.

Reproductive Rights

*In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Constitutional right to privacy enforced through the due process clause of the 14th Amendment grants women the right to an abortion.*

This, however, does not stop legislators from ignoring the Constitution, and placing their personal views ahead of the rights of others.


"By almost any measure, issues related to reproductive health and rights at the state level received unprecedented attention in 2011. In the 50 states combined, legislators introduced more than 1,100 reproductive health and rights-related provisions, a sharp increase from the 950 introduced in 2010. By year’s end, 135 of these provisions had been enacted in 36 states, an increase from the 89 enacted in 2010 and the 77 enacted in 2009."

Here are the clever and Constitution-Ignoring ways they get around this issue:

Bans

Waiting Periods

Ultrasound

Insurance Coverage

Clinic Regulations


http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2012/01/05/losing-ground-on-womens-rights-in-2011-sex-ed-contraception-abortion-rights-all-u/


"The Supreme Court noted in 1992, in its Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey ruling, that "the ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives."

--Kimberly Wright

Birth Control

As we know, those who advocate ignoring the Constitution, also ignore facts.

Since the Hyde Amendment in the 1970's, no federal tax monies are allowed to pay for abortions.

This doesn't stop the Constitution-Ignorers from pretending otherwise.

And, in their deliberate skirting of the facts, many women have been thrown to the way-side.

"Rachel Landon says she doesn't make much money as an actor, but she's been able to get birth control, gynecological exams and other health screenings at her local Planned Parenthood in Houston as part of the Women's Health Program, which provides care for low-income women."

These people trying to shut this down never met me, never met any of these other women," Landon, 29, told ABCNews.com. She said that since it's difficult to find a doctor she trusts, she stuck with Planned Parenthood after starting to go there in college. "Losing that not only hurts me financially, but it hurts me as a Texan on a personal level."

http://news.yahoo.com/planned-parenthood-fights-defunding-210409487--abc-news-health.html


Here is a PDF from Planned Parenthood. You can see for yourselves where the money goes: trust me, none of it for abortions.

Abortion is used as a smoke-screen for "Psssst, ladies...Don't have sex."

Voting is a Priviledge for the Few!

2013...same battle!

Voting Rights

As this rant is dealing with concrete laws, I won't get into the fact that elections are stolen through subterfuse. But honestly, with legislators like the ones we have now: Why bother?

Here are some of the tactics, which have increased in this free country:

Voter ID laws

Targeted voter purges

Deceit

Worst of all, from the pov of a Constitution-Lover, is this:

The best democracy that money can buy. "In the so-called Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Republican-appointed 5-vote conservative majority on the Supreme Court decreed in 2010 that secret unlimited corporate funding for political ads is a form of Constitutionally protected "free speech." This decision dramatically shifts electoral influence away from individual voters by allowing wealthy individuals and corporations to covertly buy the election results they want with a flood of cash. At the same time, super-sized corporate campaign contributions given directly to candidates have become a legally-sanctioned form of outright bribery."

http://www.crmvet.org/info/votehist.htm

Thankfully, there are still people who speak out:

"The push by conservatives to repeal Section 5 comes on the heels of what NAACP president Benjamin Jealous has called "the greatest attacks on voting rights since segregation." After the 2010 election, GOP officials approved laws in more than a dozen states to restrict the right to vote by requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote, shutting down voter registration drives, curtailing early voting, disenfranchising ex-felons and mandating government-issued photo IDs to cast a ballot--all of which disproportionately target communities of color. The states covered by Section 5 were significantly more likely to pass such laws than those that are not."


And now, we have a challenge to the Voting Rights Act of 1964.

Gay Rights

Perhaps the most notorious form of outright discrimination in recent history, is DOMA: the Defense of Marriage Act.


"Edith Windsor, the New York widow at the centre of a US supreme court legal challenge to the act that bans federal recognition of same-sex marriage, put her case on Tuesday in a brief arguing that the law contributes to the "pervasive history of discrimination" experienced by gay people in the US.

In her brief to the court, Windsor's legal team argues that laws like Doma that classify people based on their sexual orientation should be subjected to "heightened scrutiny", a standard which calls on the court to presume that anti-gay legislation is unconstitutional and asks the government to provide a strong explanation for the law in question.

The brief notes that "gay men and lesbians have experienced a pervasive history of discrimination" and that "as a result lesbians and gay men have confronted discrimination at the hands of both government and private actors".

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/feb/26/edith-windsor-supreme-court-doma


Gay Americans are also discriminated against in tax laws, due to the plethora of tax breaks afforded to married couples of different sex.

How in the world is it following the Constitution to penalize someone for loving the wrong sex?

Workers Rights

"In December 2012, politics in Michigan was thrown into discord over a sudden decision by the state’s Republican-led Legislature to approve legislation that vastly reduced the power of unions, an especially striking move in the birthplace of the modern labor movement."

http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/timestopics/subjects/o/organized_labor/index.html

Perhaps we remember this most from the upheaval in Wisconsin, when Scott Walker tried to take away collective bargaining rights:

"Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn says Gov. Scott Walker is waging a war against his state’s employees and even some of the Wisconsin governor’s GOP colleagues believe “he’s on the wrong track.”

“It's a war on workers: You know, the people who teach our kids, who plow the snow off our interstates,” Quinn Monday said on MSNBC. “Those are working men and women and they deserve a decent pay and decent retirement. They've already given up concessions in that area.

“The right to have a union and collectively bargain – about your conditions, working conditions – that's a fundamental American right,” he said. “So what Governor Scott Walker's doing in Wisconsin is just plain wrong. and I think he's going to realize it. The people of America are not on his side."

http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/scott-walker-pat-quinn/2011/02/28/id/387809

When workers are down-graded to "hired help", rather than co-partners in the creation of wealth, the whole country suffers.

Liberty and Justice for all begins with the ability to support your family.



All Kinds of Rights that were Obliterated under All Presidents


I won't go into this, as anyone worth their historical salt can name many.

The point I am making is this:

Those of you who see "rights" as interchangable with your politcal or world view, really have no comprehension of the word.

With a couple of hours on google, I could find hundreds of activities--past and present-- which our government has been involved in, that decimate human rights.....and can find pretty much the same thing on any school yard play-ground, or place of business.

I suppose in this circumstance, we must pick and choose those rights we deem important.

But please do not expect accolades for those who advocate for the Constitution on the one hand, but blow it to smithereens with the other.

Until true equal rights are afforded all human beings everywhere, we must pick our battles.

And, no one right holds more weight than any other.


If you think otherwise, well.....As W used to say:



That's

Bit of Good News


"President Obama signed an executive order on Thursday establishing a bipartisan commission to examine problems of voter access after complaints of long lines at polling stations during last year’s election.

Mr. Obama promised during his State of the Union address last month that he would appoint such a panel, saying that “we are betraying our values” if voters end up sacrificing their franchise “because they can’t wait for five, six, seven hours just to cast their ballot.”

      Can someone tell me when confronting political opponents suddenly became a victim game?

      Does no one remember the tea party? They confronted Obama and democrats.....and they were not nice. In fact, they used to bring guns. And their signs said, "we won't use them....this time"

      Have we gone from bringing guns and carrying pics of Obama as Hitler is ok, to telling us we must be nice to Trump?

      If you dont like political protests, you should have said so then.

      Amazing.....is it possible rightwingers dont read Trumps tweets?

      Cause if they did, they would know who is dividing and spreading hate in this country.

      Trust me, it's clear Democrats, Mexicans, immigrants, muslims and ugly women aren't wanted here.

      Here, in USA where we all live and pay taxes to be insulted and left out by this president.

      Just like the Tea Party heroine Palin, who made a distinction between people she called REAL Americans. And we knew it wasn't us.

      Not us liberals. Not the dirty, scummy liberals. The blood that must be spilled by patriots.

      And I cannot believe they are fine with a US govt taking children from parents and LOSING them in the system.

      This is a crime in my mind....it is just another day in Trumpland for them.

      This moral outrage never seems to find its way to dumpy don....

      Instead, its directed at fellow Americans expressing views.

      Of course, there is no moral outrage about Birtherism, which potus and flotus subscribed to.

      No moral outrage about his prejudices. No moral outrage about zero tolerance for a misdeameanor crime, and no obligation to international laws that allow for asylum from deadly situations.

      If a human trafficker sells kids, it's a crime. When a government takes them to profit detention centers, its what?

      One of those centers? Betsy Devos. She gets $700 a night per kid.

      Really, the conspiracy theorists should look into it....its odd who was lobbying this prez.....odd who is profiting from his policies.....odd how it mirrors Gaza.

      But if course, they won't. They'll scream "stop picking on my Donnie"

      Dirty Don, the Con.

      Forever a stain on the American experiment.

      Dotard Donald Trump defended every sick and twisted vulgar statement Ted Nugent ever made. "It shows how angry people are", he said.

      America under trump is imprisoning children.....just like his partner in crime Netanyahu. He wants us to sit at attention like north koreans when he speaks. He's in love with Vladimir Putin even though Putin hacked American citizens. And not one Bill Clinton basher thinks a married man with a wife and little baby sleeping with other women shows bad character. No, they blame and shame the women. I'll bet they think melania has every right to hate the women trump slept with. Not like Hillary, who was supposed to greet her husband's other women with kindness and respect.

      And not like Bill, who publicly apologized and was hauled in front of the GOP lead Congress. What a difference a Prez from your own political party makes, huh? Its called negotiable virtue.

      Rules don't apply when your man is king. And you hold yourselves up to NO standards.

      And since you stole the gubmint, you don't have to.

      Must be nice.

      Then again, not if you're into integrity and stuff.

      Melania Trump showed no respect for our laws when she came here.... worked illegally before she obtained citizenship...if she even did. They were supposed to show her citizenship papers, and haven't.

      Her parents chain migrated here on her status, and never worked.

      We are deporting people who have lived, worked, and paid taxes here for 40 years, have children who will lose their parents.

      My question is, When do we deport the first lady!!!

      Can we have a discussion about gun violence?

      Can we talk to emergency room doctors about the destruction and death they see by gunshot? The heartache they feel seeing lives gone, wasted. Young ones.

      Can we talk about the cost, in lives and money we pay day after day after day?

      No, we can't.

      But we can discuss the fetus all day long.

      Funny...this came out a year ago....I never heard anyone call for purging.....gee golly whiz, i wonder why??? (duh)

      Fri 4 Nov ‘16 10.01 EDT First published on Thu 3 Nov ‘16 14.02 EDT

      "Deep antipathy to Hillary Clinton exists within the FBI, multiple bureau sources have told the Guardian, spurring a rapid series of leaks damaging to her campaign just days before the election.

      Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over director James Comey’s July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton’s maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.

      “The FBI is Trumpland,” said one current agent.

      The currently serving FBI agent said Clinton is “the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel,” and that “the reason why they’re leaking is they’re pro-Trump.”

      The agent called the bureau “Trumplandia”, with some colleagues openly discussing voting for a GOP nominee who has garnered unprecedented condemnation from the party’s national security wing and who has pledged to jail Clinton if elected.

      The Daily Beast reported on Thursday on ties between Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor, and the FBI’s New York field office, which reportedly pressed the FBI to revisit the Clinton server investigation after beginning an inquiry into Weiner’s alleged sexual texting with a minor. The website reported that a former New York field office chief, highly critical of the non-indictment, runs a military charity that has received significant financial donations from Trump."

      *****

      Hmmmmm, so its OK for a woman to put up with FBI agents who think she's the anti christ, and are openly pro-Trump, a pronominant ex mayor who works with them, and the nominee Trump, who gave donations to an anti hillary FBI charity....

      THIS is ok...not purgable?'... but an FBI agent who insults Trump must be purged???

      You on the right are hypocrits and babies...shame on you crybaby asses.

      And eff you too. No wonder America is in the mess its in.....

      If you think uncovering Epstein is going to hurt the clintons, think again.

      Your man trump is named.

      By 3 women. Not just being there, but participating.

      Russia also claims to have more than one tape of trump kompromat doin the nasty violent in moscow and st Petersburg.

      And c'mon...this is going on since beginning of time. Ancient greek philosophers loved young boys, didnt they?

      Temple prostitutes....who you think magdalen was?

      Catholic sex scandal....tying into hw bush white house....franklin cover-up.

      Its as old as mankind.

      So go for it. The more you think youre getting clinton, will turn right back to trump.

      Like the email thing....now trump adm is refusing to say who used a private server....and there are many!

      So i guess the millions wasted on a "stupid witch-hunt"--colin powell, WAS political theatre to help republicans win.

      People keep comparing guns to cars....

      To have a car, you must pass a written test, a drivers test, an eye test. You must register, license, and insure it. You must have the car inspected every year, license renewed every 5....

      You want to compare? You can walk into a gun show, virginia and "git you a ryfle."

      Ok. I know you heard about tim murphy...anti abortion. Votes to curtail womens rights. Republican.

      Was cheating on his wife and when his mistress got pregnant, told her to have an abortion.

      Annnnnd, hes quitting at the end of his term....

      "To spend more time with his family".....if his wife stays w the cheater.

      So how come no one mentions it?

      And i wonder if in the future, he'd be charged with accessory to murder.

      Cause your unfreedom party wants to decide womens lives without any of the responsibility for their unasked for demands.

      Booooo. A trillion times booo

      Oh fer....

      Hillary Clinton was accused of a lot more than emails. They held hearings on benghazi saying she let stevens --her friend!!--die. They said she had seth rich killed. They called her a corporate whore. They said she would start ww3. And even after numerous hearings BY republicans, with no guilty verdicts, you people here still call her a crook.

      Meanwhile, mr innocent trump has paid numerous fines for criminal behavior, was trying to make a deal w putin while running for prez!, and is profitting off the presidency. Yet, you people say he has not been proven to have done any wrong.

      When it comes out how he conspired with vlad to steal this election, you wont be able to handle it.

      He has truly captured you. Like a cult.

      Good luck in your reality. You will need deprogramming from decades of kremlin-based propaganda

      1. Bill clinton sold prisoners aids tainted blood

      2. Bill and hillary killed vince foster

      3. Hillary sold uranium to russia

      4. Hillary is satan

      I certainly do. And i have one thing to say:

      Id better see trump crucified, or i may have to question your integrity. Do you have any, or not?

      So far, i havent seen it. All the things you demonized obama and hillary for are coming back in spades.

      Half trumps cabinet is goldman sachs.

      Hes ordered more drone strikes and policies that have killed more civilians in 7 months than obamas year.

      Hes almost matched obamas whole 8 years in spending our tax dollars on himself.

      And you are milque toast.

      trump is on his third marriage and rumoured to he having an affair now. mrs Trump should direct her prayers to the children who will die of cancer when her husband takes their healthcare away.

      hes also gutting special ed, which my grandson benefits from. maybe if i laundered mob money i could afford private school for him like barron has.

      hes also going back to stupid war on drugs: lock-em-up instead of treatment.

      living in a high opioid use area, i can say with absolute certainty he will ruin lives.

      That is just baloney. Women are made to feel guilty by the patriarchal society. Any country that is not ruled by religion has abortion as a normal medical procedure. Its only religious control that makes it a problem.

      And it's the height of selfishness to have a child you cant afford. Do you know what kind of life that is?

      And what kind of help can a woman expect from this country that so demonizes her for having sex?

      Guess what? It really depends on where you live. Good Christian republicans don't seem to want to help a girl once she's carried that fetus to term.

      And just btw, it's insulting beyond belief that this is even a public issue. You people are demanding that total strangers follow your decree. Their lives are not yours, I wonder if you get that?

      Maybe you could work for more social, survival, public school issues to have some money spent on them. Or work to end these senseless gun shootings going on every day of the week. Why don't more people do that, then work to criminalize women and doctors?

      As far as Jesus goes...the rest of that admonition is go and sin no more.

      That's the part that doesn't seem to get remembered and followed.

      Robert Dear thinks he will be praised by fetuses in heaven.

      What about the real live people he killed here?

      Every single woman or girl who has an abortion is someone's baby! Their lives matter, too!

      Honestly, I don't think Sanders and Trump get it.

      You don't just use a party for votes. A party is an institution. It has rules, traditions, and a party platform.

      You don't just say, hey I'm getting a lot of votes, give me the delegates.

      Delegates work for the parties, not the individuals.

      For instance, a portion of Clinton's campaign funds go to other democrats running in other elections, as a way to help the party as a whole. Sanders is having none of that.

      He's running for himself alone.

      Same as Trump.

      Which is why they should have had the courage to run Independent, or something else.

      Instead, both of them use the clout and leverage of the big parties while insulting and distancing themselves from it. It's really pretty foul and self-serving.

      Delegates work for the party, not the individual.

      And I am really insulted that Sanders comes around bashing the Democratic candidate as he uses the clout and Media of it.

      If he wins, will he respect democrats?

      I think we can see the answer already.

      Imagine it goes on 20 hrs a day. Dem bashing, liberal bashing. Women bashing, black bashing. It's all part of the vast right wing conspiracy: control the media.

      It's why Reagan got rid of fairness doctrine.

      They forget the airwaves are public. All povs should be heard. By constitution! But what has happened, is right wing bigwigs have bought up all the stations, and since the Fairness Doctrine is no longer law, have no compulsion to use the public airwaves for public use, but use it for their own private agenda.

      It's another example of the theft from the people that has gone on here.

      I really challenge you to do this one day: listen to talk radio. All day. See how you feel about Democrats, women, blacks, Hispanics at the end of the day. I bet you start to hate them, or at least think what the hell is wrong with them. And there is no rebuttal. No views from the Dems, women and minorities they are bashing. No opportunity for their voices to be heard.

      Imagine this goes on day after day, 20 hrs of it....

      It's quite the psy-op. And quite devious. And hugely unAmerican.

      And hubpages plays that game too.

      Just yesterday, the right wing clique voted out 2 answers. One was pro Obama, the other pro Clinton.

      So, you don't see it. Poof, gone.

      Psy-op. Only their voices heard. By design.

      Not only is it unAmerican, but it's cowardly. No wonder they're the party of chicken-hawks.

      Ahahahahha....flashback: Rove erases 22 million Bush/Cheney e-mails, media says nothing.

      Romney takes all his records with him when leaving office of gvr, people say "so?"

      But now, were supposed to get all outraged and angry cause you say something about e-mails....transparency....?

      Whats changed, but the political party?

      Anyone who tells me how rotten our support of the Israeli military occupation of Palestine and their illegal settlements is gets my vote.

      Im voting morality this time around.

      You 're not getting it!! Its not about court cases and whatnot, its about Cruz saying Obama cant be prez cause he born in Kenya!

      Listen, i dont care about the legal mumbo jumbo. You all said just cause Obama is a lawyer, hes still a bum.

      Same goes for Tedrina. Fact is, he was a Birther.

      He said since Obam was born in Kenya, he cannot be prez.

      So how come he can be born in Canada, and its ok?

      Thought experiment.....

      I'm running for prez. My daughter has fallen in love with and married an Iranian man, and converted to the Muslim faith.

      My son-in-law, who has 2 beautiful children with my daughter: my grandchildren!, has 2 start-up companies in Iran.

      Would this be an issue?

      How about you get 230 more new laws controlling your guns, then we can talk about infringing your rights.

      Cause, u know the original saying....if u dont like abortion, dont have one!

      Just give me a break! This chick call people who will vote for Hillary "Morons", then demands that people treat her with respect. Shows a gun just fired, smoke coming out of it and calls it aroma therapy...that's real creepy. Her partner-in-crime demeans a liberal, but ignores her friend's constant hatred directed at of Obama, Muslims and Hillary.

      I thought hate-speech was a bannable offense? Or is it just who says it and who it's about?

      Erm.....sorry--you can't claim "freedom of speech", when you actively work to ban people from forums...you just can't!

      Nor can you when you claim right to control my womb.

      SORRY--Fail on 2counts!

      ****

      Book called No One Died at Sandy Hook.....banned from Amazon, Professor who wrote it fired from job......freedom, or McCarthyism?

      YET.....anyone can say all terrorists are Muslims, and keep Muslims out.

      Uh huh......freedom eh? More like Mind Kontrol

      Why not? Countering Zionism an anti-semite, you people always say.

      Just heard on the radio that my small little town a business was held up last night at gunpoint.

      Now, he could have used a knife, a bat, a broken bottle, frying pan, nail file, etc...

      But they chose a gun. Know why

      Its so much more effective isnt it?

      And creates terror in the mind, doesnt it?

      Now, the lame-brains will say "biz owners better get guns....all of town better get guns"

      KA-CHING
