I’m glad we are having this discussion, but geez, here we are with no ERA, and not equal and we are asked to decide. Is it an act of domestic terrorism or a hate crime?

IT’S BOTH!!!!#@!

HE ATTACKED A FEDERALLY FUNDED ORGANIZATION, THAT PORTION OF WHICH PROVIDES HEATH CARE TO WOMEN AND FAMILIES, BUT NOT ABORTION.

HE ATTACKED WOMEN AND THEIR SUPPORTERS, WHO DO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE AND NEEDED ABORTIONS.

THIS IS HOW WE LOSE THE WAR ON WOMEN. WE DEFLECT IT TO SOMETHING ELSE; GUNS, INSANITY, ABORTION, YADAYADAYADA.

HE IS A MISOGYNIST WHACK-A-DOODLE THUG WHO ATTACKS WOMEN, ANIMALS AND LOCKS. HIS PEOPLE KNEW HE WAS A WHACK-A-DOODLE. THE POLICE KNEW HE WAS A WHACK-A-DOODLE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT RANDOM SHOOTERS, WHOSE PREDICTIVE ACTIONS ARE STOCHASTIC OR UNKNOWABLE. THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT PROPERLY TRACKED.

WOMEN DESERVE THE SAME SECURITY AS THE REST OF SOCIETY, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION.

What it is NOT is a simple act of murder by a deranged lone gunman.

Here are the Oversight and Reform Hearing uTubes and documents. I hope they are complete, you never know with uTube:

Planned Parenthood’s Taxpayer Funding

All together, the uTubes are a few hours of listening and watching. The first part of Part 3 with Congressman Clay discusses how PP standards have been within the law and that the MO. investigation found no wrongdoing.

Yes, Planned Parenthood could probably survive without Federal Funds, but we all know this is about whether or not women, men and families would receive Medicaid service on the reduced funds.

Rep. Jackson Lee from Texas, spoke very well to the issue of mixing apples and potatoes, when it came to the loss of medical access versus abortion, and the overturning of the unconstitutional Texas Law. 25% of Texan women lost access, especially in rural areas, after July 2013.

David Daleiden, who was responsible for the edited PP videos, has been ordered to turn over the complete and raw videos for his PP sting.   According to Rep. Lee,  Daleiden may plead the 5th over his unwarranted (illegal) investigation, which was determined to provide no evidentiary basis against PP.

The House has been very busy making up new bills (See H.R.3495.)regarding women’s health care. centered around the idea that one way to reduce the impact of aPlanned Parenthood is to allow the states more latitude in determining whether they should allow federal funds to be spent on abortion providers. To be clear, federal funds already are not spent on abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the live of the mother. (Keep in mind  one point of attack has been to require proof meaning a trial or confession-something that could culminate after the birth. )

GovTrack.Us indicates that 49 abortion referenced bills have been introduced, referred to committee, and/or passed by the House THIS year. See: Abortion. That list doesn’t include H.R.3495 or H. Res. 444.

These current bills are specifically an attempt to eliminate the use of Medicaid funds by those folks who have no other way to pay for the range of health services, that PP provides. if you take Medicaid from Planned Parenthood, you prevent people on Medicaid from utilizing their range of services at 700 locations around the country. This is the worst kind of classist, sexist, racist evil.

HRC put out a “Briefing” today that includes a list of Republican candiates’ statements on Planned Parenthood:

National Feral Cat Day

Check out this link!

Did you know that rather than feral cats, environmental and habitat destruction are the primary  cause of declining bird populations?

Did you know that trapping, neutering and releasing (TNR) of feral cats is a better way to deal with population control? If you remove a colony, new un-neutered  or un-spayed ferals move into the vacuum created by the loss of the previous colony.

Did you know that the death rate for feral cats sent to the shelter is nearly 100%? Since most can’t be socialized they can’t be adopted. Individuals in managed feral colonies are healthier, quieter, less destructive, vaccinated against rabies, and have a life span comparable to pet cats.
