Way To Prove My Point Dude

Surprisingly, the comments section on my latest letter did NOT go to hell in a handbasket.

It went to SUPERHELL.

If these ladies did not go around looking like young hookers all the time there would probablybe less rapes, and not to mention women drinking so much. I DO NOT THINK A WOMAN’S POOR CHOICE GIVES HER THE RIGHT TO KILL!

People really cant get that this in no way redefines rape. Anytime concent is not given its a forced act hence ‘forcable rape’. Also check the stats a very VERY slim amount of rapes result in pregnancy because the body is under such stress both physicaly and emotionally. Most abortions are pregnancys that result from concensual sex, and frankly I do not want a penny of my money used to kill an innocent baby cus chicky couldnt keep her legs closed! (note I did not say in rape cases I said in consenual cases) We all know what birth control is and how to use it. As far as it being a ‘woman choice what to do with her body’ fine, but its not your body that you are killing now is it?

Look at it this way– these fine ladies and gentlemen have single-handedly proven my thesis. It’s the “pro-rape” movement now. Pass it on.

They also help prove the point that pro-rapists are all morons, as evidence by the toting of the already discredited Lila Rosesting.”

If you don’t think women ask for it by wearing skirts and shouldn’t have to keep their legs shut all the time, won’t you please donate?

We’re Taking the Dinosaurs Back Now, Kthnx

Hey you! Wanna indoctrinate your kids in evilution?

Evolution display with books, a model iguana and a scale model t-rex skeleton

Featuring Eugenie the Freethinker T-Rex, Blue the Marine Iguana, Booky the Book and friends!

Then come on down to the Joplin Public Library, where the good folk of the Joplin Freethunkoids have erected this unholy shrine *coffcoffspearheadedbymecoff* to empirical knowledge.

Evolution books

You can pummel an ox comatose with all these books!

Don’t worry, concerned guardians; we present both sides of the debate so your children can draw their own conclusions. You guys get a whole corner and a blurb!

Creationist corner
BALANCE

It’ll be up for the entire month of February, so bring your Valentine’s Day sweetheart. Enjoy a romantic dinner under the soft glow of 10 common misconceptions about evolution, printed on multicolored construction paper.

And it’s not even finished yet! Be sure to check out Evolution Display 1.2, which will have real ammonite fossils! And photos! And given the reactions some people have, maybe a pipe bomb or two!

Oh man I wish you could see the people in this picture! Biggest dorks ever!

Come down and see it! It probably covers more of the subject than your kids will encounter in 12 years of public school!

Very Sneaky

I wonder if they put the “forcible rape” language in that bill as a decoy. As most people rightly pounced on that aspect of the bill, the rest of it was ignored. So they took it out, giving us the illusion of victory as they roll this crap bill through.

And it’s working. Sites such as Feministing (which I’ve really soured on anyway, but wevs) are crowing about it as a victory. Er, no it’s not. They just took out the “forcible” part. It’s still a supersized Stupak-Pitts amendment that denies health coverage to rape victims and other women.

Don’t fall for it. Keep on writing in.

A Brilliant Idea From South Dakota

Just a quick reminder:

The government requiring you to buy insurance: unconstitutional Socialism.

The government requiring you to buy a gun: totally kosher.

Five South Dakota lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require any adult 21 or older to buy a firearm “sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense.”

The bill, which would take effect Jan. 1, 2012, would give people six months to acquire a firearm after turning 21. The provision does not apply to people who are barred from owning a firearm.

First off, I am on the fence about gun control. While it is true that gunfreaks are mostly comprised of horrifically stupid fruitloops, I don’t see how banning guns would curb gun violence. If banning stuff worked, we wouldn’t have drugs or backalley abortions.

Also, my misanthropic side loves the self-weeding nature of gun culture.  Most gun owners are statistically far more likely to remove themselves or close relatives from the gene pool. When I consider that, I think this bill is a wonderful idea. Give the stupid voters of South Dakota the means to off themselves with.

Yeah, yeah, eliminationist rhetoric. Give me a break, I’ve been snowed inside the house for two days straight and I’m going CRAZY.

Anyway, turns out this is grandstanding to make a point about health care.

Rep. Hal Wick, R-Sioux Falls, is sponsoring the bill and knows it will be killed. But he said he is introducing it to prove a point that the federal health care reform mandate passed last year is unconstitutional.

“Do I or the other cosponsors believe that the State of South Dakota can require citizens to buy firearms? Of course not. But at the same time, we do not believe the federal government can order every citizen to buy health insurance,” he said.

…so yeah where are those jobs you folks promise us? Is that after you’re done redefining rape and making kamikaze bills?
