Seriously...WTF is wrong with Paul Ryan?

Paul Ryan Once Again Sponsors the Bill That Would Make It Possible for Womenís Rapists to Sue Them

Well, if Paul Ryan does run in 2016, we know he'll be going full speed with the crazy, making it impossible for him to win, and Hillary will be president, and then everyone will win. Well, except for the American politics, which has been stripped of the effective multiple-party system it needs to evolve and thrive.

Whatevs, back to Ryan being an idiot with his morals stuck in all the wrong holes.

In an unsurprising turn of events, Ryan has signed on as cosponsor to the Sanctity of Human Life Act again. The original bill ó which declares that life begins with fertilization, and would give states the right to ban all abortion, even in the cases involving incest, rape, or the life of the mother ó thankfully died in Congress in 2011.

But now it's baaaaack, which is scary because not only is the above terrifying, there's all sorts of other creepy shit hidden in this monster. Like, if a woman who was raped in a state that banned abortions went to a state that didn't ban abortions and had an abortion? Her rapist could theoretically sue to stop the abortion from happening, and probably win. And it doesn't stop there with the reproductive weirdness, if passed, it'll probably make many forms of IVF illegal.

Luckily, it's almost for sure gonna die again, but I wonder if Ryan's career will go the way of the dodo bird soon after? The tide is turning, and a majority of voters don't want politicians making women's health choices for them. For everyone's sake, it would be best for Ryan and politicians like him to see this as the death rattle. Pack up your moral indignation and head home, guys, I'm sure there's a pot roast in your kitchen you can mansplain your garbage feelings on women's reproductive rights to.

Ryan is the Poster boy for cutting Entitlements and destroying them

One person admitted Obama has taken flack for bringing up the decreasing of the CPI and the raising age of medicare

but those cuts are never enough ....they really want to destroy Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid

and yet cheer for cut taxes for Corporations

28. Ryan is a zombie that will never die unless the Koch Brothers run outta money. Ain't expecting that.

These things, even if they don't pass, are doing their job to desensitive Americans and enable those who would reduce women to concubine status with not say so over their bodies and their lives.

If they do pass, they are simply using the law to force what they are doing through churches that support it. We can't expect those who are bringing up their children in them, going to private schools and living in gated communities, to feel any responsibility for the masses that this will impact.

Please consider their real goals:

The GOP Agenda: Controlling the Means of (Re)Production

Sometimes it takes me a while, but the pieces have finally slid into place. Like a lot of others, I have been mistakenly thinking that the GOPís legislative campaign against women is about domination or subversion or repression or some other kind of man-woman conflict. Itís not at all. It is about dehumanization: the puppet party of business seeking dominion over the population by controlling our reproduction.

Consider that the ideal environment for multinational corporations is pretty much the opposite of what benefits humans:

Corporations would like to drive down the worldwide cost of human capital in order to own and manage a world economy. We have already seen how this is accomplished. On the production side, corporations play leapfrog, moving factories from country to country based on marginal labor savings. On the revenue side, they drain the private assets of countries whose citizens still have money. With no resources, the citizens are ripe to be exploited as the next labor force.

83. fresh, you should post this as an OP

Great article. Clarifies what's going on very well.

Tools of patriarchy have always used women to control the people and boost their power. They take advantage of lowest instincts, iconicized social controls (viz. Angry Father deities who demand obedience) and lowest common denominators. This provides cover; while people are engaged in all kinds of low-level battles over male/female, rich/poor, producer/needy, the men (and their female stooges) who own the chess board are busy feeding their power.

of an interest group that will actually register and vote and centrists and leftists staying home out of what? Disappointment or apathy? I am pleased he plays to the crowd he chooses. There's only so many Limpbaugh and Beck audience out there and it seems to be shrinking - only 28% of the population considers itself to be 'teaparty'. That's enough extremist interest to make him the Harold Stassen of the 20teens and 20twenties. I hope he embraces that slot with every fiber of his being.

There is a change happening, the American public is not as knee jerk right wing as some thought. Ryan is a symptom not a harbinger.

40. With many rules come Dictatorship - Democracy allows freedom to choose

The people who want rules in their lives have some sort of need to follow rules - that's fine

But to impost those rules on others is unnecessary

There must be either a control problem
or
they don't feel comfortable following their own rules unless everyone else has to follow the rules, too.
(How can I restrict myself from personal freedom when I see all the other people out there breaking my rules? I must find a way to force others to live in my misery.)

That would be a good question for a debate:
Why do you find it necessary to impose your rules for living on others? Why can't everyone follow their own rules?

50. I think the intent of all these seemingly unconstitutional laws is to get them before scotus before

President Obama appoints another Justice. I know that wealthy tbag and ultra rw conservatives have been looking for cases to take to scotus. In the case of the girl suing University of Texas to set aside affirmative action there was a supporter searching the country for the perfect case to challenge affirmative action. He approached her and has funded the entire case. If you'll notice there have been an excessive number of lawsuits, seemingly unconstitutional laws, and appeals involving a hand full of issues.

52. Small Midwestern city Catholic

Established family, parochial schools and environment, NO minorities, NO poor (due to unions!) in his milieu, off to a suburban type college ( Miami of Ohio), where the students were SAT smart, but not diverse to any extent -- once there happened upon an Econ prof looking to indoctrinate an acolyte, read Ayn Rand and thought he was smart, through established Janesville and family connections parlayed the comfy bio and "reasonable" demeanor and looks into a relatively safe seat. Whereupon he could suck up to those who would propel his career to undeserved heights. Works long hours, so people think he is "accomplished", even though he is mainly channelling agitprop from Heritage, ALEC, Koch etc.

I think that's about it, except he has now landed in a river of money and will drive us crazy for some time, spouting all sorts of winger nonsense like the personhood issue to appease the money groups, but do it EARLY in the election period in order to diminish its impact when he heads up and out of Janesville.

56. Wow his wife looks really uncomfortable...

I wonder what that is about. It is also very weird Ryan doesn't want to talk about his views. I have no problem talking about mine actually it's probably best to not get me started I get rather boisterous and obnoxious (sez my youngest), most just say I am opinionated.

58. Anti-labor teabaggers at a Labor Day parade?

Maybe she was smart enough to feel uncomfortable realizing it was totally the wrong venue for them when they arrived. There were a whole string of confrontations with labor people before that short bit of footage was even shot.

Paul, the doofus he is, never got the message.

62. That explains it..

At one point I thought she was going to cry. Neither of them are really comfortable with their philosophy though, if they were they would be able to talk about it and not keep blowing people off. They are evasive and non responsive and a little creepy when Ryan asked the guy if he wanted some candy.

60. It is really important to some that Hillary run...

Personally, I'd love it if she did, but she's basically stated that she's 'out of gas'. I can't imagine that her trip to the hospital did much to change her mind on that.

Hope springs eternal I guess...

65. Paul is singing to a tuned choir.

I know it is temping to say this man will never be president, but keep in mind, Mitt "the Stench" was a Millstone round his neck. If he runs in 2016, especially if he hooks up with Rubio, and gets Pope Benedict (aka Johnny the Rat) to support him, we could see a lot of trouble.

I say this as an ex Catholic; the Catholics may have some liberal sides to them, but they are overall conservative, and want to TAKE POWER. It would not be hard for them to mobilize, especially as the left is finally speaking up more for Women's rights. It would be easy for them to demonize a Warren or even Clinton as a heathen.

70. He was a well-to-do insensitive little creep in high school.

It looks like he may just be a full-blown sociopath type.

Working to keep that ass well away from the White House should be the duty of every patriotic American. (I love talking like a Puke when trashing Pukes!)

73. What's with these people who are so libertarian as far as economic issues go

but so authoritarian as far as women's bodies go?

They don't believe in total liberty and people having choices for everything if they're anti-choice, obviously.

75. None of this kind of crap from the right would be so difficult to deal with

if it weren't for a media that reports what they say verbatim, without analysis or counterpoint. It's what amplifies the stupidity and emboldens those of like mind.

85. That's what I'm wondergin

 

Did this pig learn absolutely NOTHING from his defeat in the Presidential Election? That if you keep on proposing such anti-woman laws, that many women will vote for the other guy? I wonder if he'll ever get it. Oh well, I suppose the best thing to do is let such idiots speak out about their beliefs as much as they can. That way, the GOP will become more and more irrelevant and outdated to Americans.

90. Simply put, he's a con-artist!

A real flimflam man. He never really gives answers, mostly appeals to the vulnerable and/or under-educated among us. Really, he is a POS. But, look where it has gotten him. He's sitting in clover, and, yes, I do believe that people were totally flabbergasted that he might become President. Sheesh!
