Here it is, in a nutshell: Paul Ryan’s view of conception, forced or otherwise

Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican candidate for vice president: “I’m very proud of my pro-life record. And I’ve always adopted the idea, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”

Why do I all of a sudden feel like little more than a vessel? Jesus H., I couldn’t disagree more with this man if I took a running jump at it.

  1. I just read a quote from a queer Republican: “The best thing about the platform is that nobody cares about the platform.”

    I don’t think Ryan got the memo.

  2. he’s pro-life, but Romney makes the policy which is a vast improvement of where we are now? What is Romney’s policy doesn’t measure up to his ‘pro-life’?……then he’ll change his stance????? Double-talk.

  3. I hope I turn out to be wrong, but I fear that women are going to vote for these guys in huge numbers.

    Back we go to decades ago. It starts with controlling women’s bodies. Then what? Repeal of the Married Women’s Property Acts? Taking away the vote?

    1. Well, maybe. Those things are a real tax on our brains. It would be such a relief not to have to think about them. I could sit and embroider all day, what fun!

        1. Of course you do! It’s so hard to be fighting against our natural impulses all day!

            1. Why dearie, you don’t have to LEARN to cook, it’s in your DNA, you just have to stop repressing your natural inclinations!

              1. I probably have a few natural inclinations that deserve to be repressed, but thank you.

  4. It’s easy to go back to a comment that was published about 7 years ago in “The Sunday Oregonian:”

    “Other than telling us how to live, think, marry,
    pray, vote, invest, educate our children and, now,
    die, I think the Republicans have done a fine job of
    getting government out of our personal lives.”

    –Craig Carter

    And there’s so much we can add!

  5. Here’s a quiz…
    Who said…

    If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.

    No fair using search engines. Here’s a hint…it’s not one of the candidates.

      1. I hope this means she won’t be voting in November.
        The photo accompanying the article looked like she had some work done on that Adam’s Apple, though. Looking good, Annie!

  6. In church this past Sunday, was that always-perplexing Epistle on wives being submissive to your husbands (although I’ve heard some excellent commentary on this), went home and found, coincidentally, in the Almanac section of the Courant that it was the anniversary of 19th Amendment (Women’s Right to Vote) less than 100 years ago! So, progress is slow for us girls. One can only hope that some of these views will keep people talking….

    1. …a woman who’s a little … late and is working full time so she can stay in school, maybe.

      1. ..was late after a brutal rape and was already experiencing terrible flashbacks, finding it difficult to get through her days. And this woman who he would become would have no health insurance and she could not go to parents for help because they had been abusive. He is so far removed from any of what he judges.

        1. Barely tangentially: I heard an interesting bit in a clip from one of his pronouncements about Medicare: he was talking about his mother whose Medicare wouldn’t be affected because she’s in a generation that’s already on it — if he’s so opposed to Medicare, and his family is quite well-off (or so I understand), why is his mother still receiving Government Largesse?
