Now That Just Makes Me Mad

Listening to men discuss who should have control over women’s reproductive health really pisses me off. Many men staunchly defend a woman’s right to choose, but the fact that I, a woman, have to listen to a bunch of men on Capitol Hill debating the topic really makes me want to scream. The Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, The Christian Coalition, Sen. Coburn and Samuel Alito can all go to hell. Preach your values to your flock all you want, but do not cross the line by debating, much less supporting, a legislative or judicial agenda that will infringe upon my right to do whatever I want with my own damn body.

Feel free to lie to your followers about the science of Plan B and suggest that women will only be encouraged to be promiscuous if it is made available over the counter. Go ahead and call us murderers for choosing abortion over raising unwanted children in poverty, but do not expect us to fall for your false science and fake concern. If you truly cared about children, you would make sure there is support for the already born, and if you gave a crap about promiscuity you would go after Viagra. But no, in your twisted little minds, only women are weak minded enough to be enticed into "slutty behavior" (an over-simplification of female sexuality that says more about you than it does about us) by the availability of pharmaceuticals that widen their options. If you want to have a say in the personal decisions women must make regarding their reproductive health, go get yourself a uterus, until then, shut the fuck up!

The entire republican position on sexuality is nonsensical and contradictory. It is thus in no small part because they base their notions about the topic on their superstitions.

Children are precious. Each and every one of them. It is my firm belief that every child born into this world deserves to be wanted and cherished. And that it would be preferable that the parents who are blessed by nature’s greatest gift have the resources (financial, emotional, and otherwise) to properly care for and nurture the child. I fail to see how it makes sense to force a young women or couple to have a child that they are unwilling, unable or not prepared to care for.

One would think that all rational people, regardless of religious or political affiliation, would think it was a good idea to minimize the number of unwanted or unintended pregnancies. If that were true than the right wing would support many of the policy positions that the liberals embrace. But, alas, they do not. The right wing would rather give young people misleading and downright disproved information about sexuality. This naturally leads to an increase in unintended pregnancies and ultimately abortions.

Among of the more disturbing aspects of this whole abortion issue is that the overall number of abortions would not likely change much if it were outlawed. Women would still get abortions. It would simply be done underground. They would be performed by amateurs in locations that would not likely be sterile. Which we know, based on modern medical knowledge, would lead to illness, death, and permanent sterility in a not insignificant number of unfortunate women.

Taoism is supposedly 9,500 years old. That's what records purport, languages so very old that they can't even be deciphered but the time measurement is approximately 9,500 something.

I bring this up because I'm going to commit utter and complete Christian blasphemy.

Taoism teaches that energy is energy. Period ~ but there is subtle energy and then there is varying degrees of energy from the subtle to the very coarse, dense ~ sort of like what we're experiencing now with the peal oil dilemma. The sweet crude was fabulous for our American way of life, instant gratification, however to extract the crude~crude and then to try and refine it . . . well . . .

Anyway, Taoism teaches that when an energy (spirit) enters a woman's womb there are many factors for this "quickening" and one may be that this particular energy needs to come into the physical realm only to be "aborted" back into the collective energy pool to once again return to the Earth plane, in a more "subtle" state of energy.

It's like what Shakespeare said: "There are more things in heaven and earth than what are dreamt of in your philosophies my dear Horatio".

These madmen who are in charge of this country and as a matter of fact they are in charge of the globe, for now, and have been working on this plan since Preston Bush began its inception at World War I, are truly madmen.

The question is, can the Tao be correct? And, in the event it is, then then these madmen are also an energy which this time must have to complete a cycle that we began as a very devolved species.

I believe we are witnessing our collective unconscious American soul awakening to our own deep inner global self image; and, we've been very busy gobbling up resources, places, peoples and as much energy as we can, so that our nation of narcissists can experience consumer nirvana.

Not a pretty picture and certainly NOT fun. We are getting a "taste of our own medicine". Why wouldn't these madmen do to us what they have done to all the others? They've had lots of practice now and by damn, their egos have grown larger than life to be able to do to America in broad daylight what they've been doing globally ("full spectrum dominance"), for one century now. The key players in this time were carefully reared by those who were definitely insane.

When I use the Tao as my thermometer in this madness I must succumb to the possibility that this experience we're having with these insane lunatics running stark raving mad like unbridled energy in the form of human tsunamis, is our collective unconscious American sickness made manifest from the unknown into the known and it must go this way to heal the gaping wound.

Just because the majority of American citizens have not been consciously involved in the raping, pillaging and plundering of the planet Earth and all its species, we've certainly paid enough in taxes, to give those who could, the power to do so.

I am awakening from a deep coma about who I have been as an unconscious American human being.

What’s that legal tie about being an accomplice?

I can't help but wonder if a spiritual (energy) test applies.
