How About We Call It "Here's My Real Agenda" Day?

Oh my fucking god. Bush declares National Sanctity of Human Life Day.

Bush, who has supported various abortion restrictions, called on all Americans on Sunday to "reaffirm the value of human life and renew our dedication to ensuring that every American has access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

What the fuck? Can this administration make their stance on women any clearer? If Bush really thinks that "(e)very child is a priority and a blessing, and I believe that all should be welcomed in life and protected by law," he is even more of a nutcase than I thought.

I am seriously beginning to think that this is the year that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

How much longer as a country can we survive with this man as president? How many civil liberties and freedoms must we lose? How I wish I could be unconcerned with all of this and just live my life. How I wish I could just stick my head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist.

I am seriously beginning to think that this is the year that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

Count on it, dear. Maybe not this year. Maybe not until he is winging his way through his second term (if he is inflicted on us for a second term). But you'd better believe that a part of his (mostly) unspoken agenda is to find a way to get rid of legal abortions in the U.S. preferably without having to personally take any of the political fallout for it.

Which is why he probably won't move on it until his second term. At that point, he won't have to worry about getting re-elected.

It's also why he was through hissy fits when his nominations for the federal bench kept getting stalled in a Democratic-controlled Congress. He's stacking the bench with nice Conservatives so that he'll have plenty to choose from when he gets to nominate somebody.

Oh, yes, my dear. It's definitely coming.

Duhbya's attitude (and his appointment of John Ashcroft as Attorney General) was a big part of why Mike had a vasectomy shortly after the wedding. We had decided that kids were not for us, but we feared that if birth control failed, we might find ourselves without a choice in the matter.

That was OUR choice. However, I feel for women who don't want babies NOW, but might want them someday. Permanent sterilization is not the answer for them. And they are the ones who are gonna get fucked, big-time, if they get pregnant once Row vs. Wade gets overturned.

I can only pray that Duhbya will take after his daddy, and be a one-term president. He is not only stupid, he is dangerous.

People, please, calm down. Time for the Voice of Reason to step in here. Roe vs. Wade is not going to be overturned, nor will Bush be pushing for it. In fact, the balance of the Court won't be shifting because it is highly unlikely we'll see the retirement of any of the liberal justices in the near future. Thus, the current ideological split will remain.

Second, new appointees to the federal bench are not likely nominees for the High Court, since Presidents want to be sure of the ideological bent before the nomination. And yes, though is no requirement they have served a tenure on the Federal Bench, it's almost certain that Bush already has his first nominee selected and waiting (Hint: He is serving in the White House as Chief Counsel as we speak.)

Finally, would you all please stop acting like Bush is a) stupid and b) dangerous. He has run his administration with a fair, even hand, fighting a war while leaving basic civil liberties virtually untouched. The only people with something to fear are those with something to hide.

But it does exist, and yes, it's clear there's an agenda. We can only hope that there is enough sense somewhere in the Justice System to keep us focused on the things that are really threatening our country, and leave the rights of women alone.
