To meme, or not to meme, that is the marklar
Marklar 'tis meme in the marklar to meme
The Marklar and Marklar of outrageous Meme
Or to marklars Marklars against a Meme of memes,
And by memeing meme marklar: to meme, to meme
No meme; and by a meme, to marklar meme end
The marklar-marklar, and the marklar Meme marklar
That Meme is marklar meme? 'Tis a marklar
Marklar to be meme. To meme to meme,
To marklar, marklar to Marklar; Marklar, there's the meme,
For in that marklar of meme, what marklar marklar marklar,
When meme have marklared off this memed coil,
Marklar give marklar marklar. There's the marklar
That makes Marklar of so marklar marklar:
For meme would bear the Meme and Meme of meme,
The Meme's marklar, the meme marklar's Meme,
The marklar of despised Meme, the Marklar’s meme,
The meme of Marklar, and the Marklar
That marklar meme of the unmeme marklars,
Meme marklar marklar might marklar Meme make
With a marklar Meme?

Of "Honest Rapes" And Abortions

These male politicians running around wanting to control women's bodies have said and/or done some pretty inhumane things over the years, but this election cycle has brought out perhaps the most inhumane statements.

The latest comes from Ron Paul, who is the darling of some because he's so anti-war; yeah, well so what? During an interview recently, Dr. Paul, who is decidedly anti-abortion, actually said this regarding abortion and rape:
"If it's an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen."
An honest rape? What the fuck does he mean? Later we find out, when he offers a straw man story about a woman who is seven months pregnant and wants an abortion because she was raped, well, that's a "different story". Different perhaps, but definitely what Dr. Paul considers a dishonest rape! Luckily, there are still some folks who haven't fallen under the Dr. Paul spell and can call this sort of talk for the inhumanity it is.

Another inhumane and down right dangerous comment comes from the Right's frothiest candidate, Rick Santorum. He has a plan when it comes to abortions:
"I believe that, that any doctor who performs an abortion--that--I would advocate that any doctor that performs an abortion should be criminally charged for doing so. I don't--I've never supported criminalization of abortion for mothers, but I do for people who perform them."
Apparently, Santorum makes no distinctions between honest and dishonest rapes.

The current occupant of the White House, President Obama, while a devout Christian, has tossed a few bones to his liberal admirers when it comes to abortion. While he doesn't believe that federal money should be used for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or health of the mother, he did sign an Executive Order removing barriers to responsible scientific research involving human stem cells. In his capacity as a democratic president, of course, he is obligated to uphold the Constitutional right to abortion.

And we don't know where he stands on honest or dishonest rapes.

12 Years Later Gore-ites Still Won't Let Go

This fall marks the 12th anniversary of the stolen election of 2000. Stolen, what? Well, officially, there were a lot of Gore vs. Bush and Bush vs. Gore court cases and ultimately it was the court, in this case the Supreme Court, which finally gave a ruling and ended our second long national nightmare. But that's pure obfuscation, because the election was stolen in Florida and there's little a thinking individual can do to ignore that piece of history.

In 2000, I voted for Ralph Nader and twelve years later I still get shit from Gore-ites who blame me and all others who voted for Nader as the true cause the 2000 election debacle. They ignore not only the stolen election but the fact that Al Gore lost his own home state (Tennessee) which would have made the machinations in Florida moot in regards to Gore winning the required amount of electoral votes. Did you just read that last sentence over again? Yeah, all he had to do was win Tennessee. Makes you wonder if the Republicans didn't see the Tennessee writing on the wall.
From Nader's website and I don't know the photographer.
