The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

But it’s NOT Republician Obstructionsim – ‘Republican Senator Tries To Add Conception Amendment To Flood Insurance Bill’

Remember this by the Speaker of the House :

‘Boehner Asks Angrily, ‘Do We Have to Fight About Everything?’
From : http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/boehner-asks-angrily-do-we-have-to-fight-about-everything/

Maybe because all too often Republicans purposely want confrontation with stupid amendments like this :

‘Floods and abortions are distinctly different topics — except to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who is trying to attach an anti-choice amendment to the Senate’s flood insurance bill’.

‘After years of delay, senators recently came to an agreement over the flood bill and were set to vote on it this week’.

‘But now, Paul is threatening to hold up its final passage by adding an amendment defining when life begins. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) expressed his displeasure with that move this morning, saying he would not bring the bill up for a vote if the amendment is added’:

“This is ridiculous, that somebody says I’m not going to let this bill goes forward unless I have a vote on when life begins. I am not going to do that, and I think I speak for the majority of senators. Now, if the Republicans won’t stand up to the person who is going to do that, I’m not going to. I have tried my best to deal with these issues that have nothing to do with a piece of legislation”.

‘The National Flood Insurance Program helps homeowners whose houses are destroyed by floods — like those that devastated Minnesota and are currently sweeping Florida — and has absolutely nothing to do with abortion or conception’.

  2. Just a heads up… As much as I do support what it says, your graphic there has a typo that will greatly undermine the points that it is trying to make in the eyes of any educated opponent. “Your” should be “You’re”….. These are exactly the kinds of things I see on Tea Party protest signs all the time and laugh at them. When you are trying to make a point that you might ever want an opponent to take seriously, it pays to do a little proofreading.
