Possibly an automatic response to protect you from all things Carly Rae Jepsen. Understandable.

It boggles my mind that ANY woman could support some crazy shit like that New Mexico abortion bill, let alone sponsor it. Let's just push women's suffrage back a couple of decades, why don't we?

Going by her Live Lounge performance, out of the 2012 one/two hit wonders she is the only one of them that can actually hit a note and hold it without an auto-tune.

Yep. In the panic / paranoia ridden delusions of the ultra conservative to combat the evils of Theological Tyrants who oppress their people with burgeoning laws based on religious views, they have become that which they intended to stop.

If it wasn't so absolutely shitbag crazy and appalling, you'd think it was a good storyline for a comic hero. But they even found a way to ruin that angle.

They are voted in by a majority of people who are republicans because that's who they are. They vote republican straight down the line, regardless if they know who the person is or not.

I'm unsure what you mean by this.

And for my daily Political interaction: Shit like this drives me bonkers. I don't know if this letter is real, but there have been reports lately of companies who are laying off workers as a way of dealing with "Obamacare" or "Obamatax" or whatever they want to call it.

Image

This is the same batshit insanity that I reference above, when I said that they have become the very thing that they fear. You didn't vote the same way I did? Fine. You're fired.

Yes. That's TOTALLY American. I really have a serious problem with the companies who are doing it this way. Not performance related. Politics related. Firing someone over this, (and the fact that there are plenty of places where it is legal to do so) is the most mindnumbingly shittastic thing in the world.

This is still discrimination. But currently, it's not outlawed in many states. What's the difference between firing someone based on Age, Sex, Race, Relgion, or Politics? You are still discriminating against them.

I'm seriously reconsidering my stances on abortion based on this cretin. I used to support it being legal as a necessary but distasteful evil. Now I'm starting to think that maybe it is a good idea for some people.

So apparently some hot shot minister questions Obama's religious beliefs. This coming from a Christian who supported a Mormon who had no interest in feeding the hungry or healing the sick or housing the homeless or doing anything resembling anything the New Testament stands for.

Plank? That's a case of mistaking the tree for the forest if I've ever seen one!

TBH, I was leaning that way originally ... I can't tell if its satire or actual stupidity... going with the latter though because I'm jaded, but if its a troll... then well played.
