I really hate having to pay attention to politics, it's so boring. Which is why I have those little e-mails sent to me from the Dems, even though they're pretty dumb. They're just so... excitable and poorly written.
The DADT thing didn't pass. You probably heard.
Next month I'll be voting in Virg for Governor here, looks like. Apparently the Republican ticket is pretty damn anti-choice. Suddenly the billboards with chubby babies saying "Elections have consequences" mean something. Funny how we don't have those supporting welfare.Snyder has said he opposes abortion except in cases of rape, incest and where the life of the mother is endangered - but not if it threatens a mother's physical or mental health.
Calley opposes abortion in all cases, and has even opposed contraception measures for rape victims, Bernero said.
Definitely not okay with these two. Perhaps Calley is a tea party crazy Snyder has pulled in to appeal to the radical right? But I don't know a lot about the ballot so I'll be educating myself in the next few weeks. Might volunteer too. "Political activist" is such a snazzy title.
Some guy I know basically said he doesn't think women should be allowed more than three abortions. He immediately backtracked when I just kept saying "What? WHAT?" but he, of course, had a story about a teenager who had eight abortions before she was eighteen, and my god, wasn't that terrible? Uh, sure. If that's actually true, and not just gossip. But it's still her choice, not yours.
Anyway, my views on abortion and fetuses in general has changed so much it's astounding and I feel a bit like an alien when I talk to other people about it.
I'm still a waitress :\ But at least I have a job, amirite?
