It was a cold and stormy night.
And that was last night.
Daughter and I were out and about and the rain poured and the wind blew our umbrellas slight askew.
Dinner was good. I left a puddle under my chair. Hope the waiter didn’t think I lost bladder control.
Poor old lady just couldn’t hold it.
The umbrella was almost dry when we left. And the rain had become sprinkles and splashes.
The clouds and wind and gloom carried over to today.
Whew. I think I’m ready for just a little sun.
I’ll regret saying that before long. No doubt it will be a hot summer.
So hot you could fry an egg on the pavement.
We prolly ain’t gonna eat that thar egg.
And, in other news, Arkansas Governor Beebe vetoed Repub state senator Jason Rappert’s bill to ban abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. I must say Rappert graciously amended the bill to exclude the use of a vaginal probe in seeking to detect said heartbeat.
Thanks Governor Beebe. There is some sanity remaining in Arkansas’ government and at least one person standing up for women’s rights here in The Natural State. I’m sure the fight isn’t over yet.
There seems to be a preponderance of self-righteous assholes in Arkansas’ house and senate. Wonder how much of the Koch brothers money has been used to stir this shit and create the big stink.
This is such an embarrassment to our state. These are unconstitutional measures wasting time, money, and effort. It is simply incomprehensible to think that there are men and women who support this travesty. Are you nuts?
We aren’t going to continue asking for our rights.
All of you who carry signs outside the abortion clinic need to go home. You don’t need an abortion that’s great, that’s wonderful. Keep your opinion on the subject to yourself. Go carry signs outside your workplace demanding equal pay if you need a mission. Go home and bake cookies and be grateful you’ve never had to make the devastating decision to terminate a pregnancy. It isn’t your body, it’s not your decision, it’s not your morality, it’s really not your business.
If you are a man you shouldn’t even be in the discussion. Half the time you get your fuck and leave us to raise your offspring. You guys don’t have such a good record in deciding what’s best for women. Men have a history….they rape us, beat us, live off us, abandon their children. They commit war, perpetuate poverty. How many women run sweatshops? Are there statistics on this?
Wanna take this biblical thing a bit further, assholes? Well then…did your god tell Adam he’d have to toil for a living and Eve she would bear her children in pain?….Then why the fuck am I doing both? I don’t think you’ve taken enough of your punishment…I think you’ve put a bunch of it off on me. And don’t go blaming Eve…Adam had free will.
Stop stirring up this shit and let it rest. I’m not going to lie down for you. I’m not going to walk behind you. I’m not going to give you unearned respect. Right now I don’t have any respect for you bible-quoting, women-bashing, gun-toting assholes anyway. Just keep preaching Rappert. Just keep trying to take us back a hundred years so you guys can beat your wives and they’ll just crawl back to the stove and make you some biscuits. Let me warn you. It won’t happen. You are thoughtless and ignorant in your pursuit of this horrific legislation and your war on women. We can live without you.
Just shut the fuck up and get over yourself. It’s not about YOU. It’s not about your god or your bible. Let’s face it, men wrote most of the books in that bible and men LIE.
And it sure as hell isn’t about your morality. That seems to change with your testosterone levels.
Good men are out there: men who think about the consequences of their actions, men who love and care for the women and children in their lives, men live as equals with their wives and significant others, men who fight for us, men who are spiritual and still understand the irrational rant you just read, men worthy of us.
Unfortunately it seems the assholes are getting all the press.
