The Crazy: It just keeps on coming!

Hey, folks!  It seems that the Republicans are bound and determined to both keep up the crazy stuff and also continue to alienate women, minorities and just about everybody else - but women seem to be at the top of the list.

Just the other day, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) said that abortion should be banned as early as 15 weeks after conception because he has witnessed male fetuses masturbate at that stage.

Really?  I mean, come on, this country is simply INSANE about sex.  I can guarantee you that had someone taken a photo of an ultrasound showing a fetus masturbating, that sucker would have hit the internet in about 2.4 seconds.  Flat.  I know this is an argument from silence, but hey, YOU tell ME of any other subject that would garner more attention, huh?  I say if it ain't on YouTube, it ain't true.

And if that isn't crazy enough for you, listen to this:
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) told colleagues on the House floor on Tuesday that young boys and girls should take classes on traditional gender roles in a marriage because there are some things fathers do "maybe a little bit better" than mothers.
 Huh.  Georgia.  Apologies to my Facebook friends in Georgia, but that comes as no surprise.

So, he doubles down:
"Of my three daughters and one daughter-in-law, they all work," he said. "They all work, some of them full-time, some of them part-time. But they’re still there as moms. And when they come home and take over that responsibility, they need a shared partner, and that partner is that partner for life. And I’m talking about, of course, the father."
Oh, yeah, the man.   So that's where he's going.  Now we have to teach our kids that being gay is wrong.  Never mind that nobody has a choice as to whether they are gay or not.  We are just going to propagandize all the little buggers from way before the time when they even know there's any difference between boys and girls to think that if they have any feelings that are different that they are just sorry, twisted, devil-infected faggots.  You know, so they don't get any funny ideas about dragging all their friends there with them...

Sick bastards.

Ah, but there's more!
Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) believes women have no place in elite military units, he said Tuesday in a Facebook post accusing President Barack Obama and the Defense Department of enacting a policy change that does not take combat roles seriously enough. 
"I find it completely hypocritical for everyone to be up in arms about military sexual assault, but then want to cast women into high stress small unit combat elements," he said. "The objective is obvious: destroy the last bastions of American warrior culture all for the advancement of a misguided vision of fairness and equality."
Yes, folks, now Obama & Co. are at war with America's "warrior culture"!!

Good.  Keep it up.  I do doubt, however, that the use of women in combat is going to do any harm to our "warrior" culture.  The Israelis have been drafting women for combat units for decades, and they are part of what is acknowledged world-wide as one of the most professional armies just about anywhere.

Think of another one, West.  You can do it!

On another note, the House has voted a bill to prevent the President from closing the Guantanamo Bay holding facility.  After, of course, criticizing him last week for not doing just that!

I know, crazy, isn't it?
