MEET YOUR FRIENDLY ENFORCERS — Texas Governor Rick Perry will soon be signing a new draconian, sectarian law to close 37 of the state’s 42 clinics that provided much needed women’s services, ending their right to exercise their constitutional free choice regarding their own reproduction decisions. What a bunch of bovine bull malarkey. We’re living in a despotic, fascist country when old men can legislate what women can and can’t do with their bodies. The South shall rise again, but this time as a male dominated theocracy. When our planet is dying from global warming, over population, pollution, etc., what possible reason can legislators have to pass laws like this, which are tantamount to state rape?!” Easy. In doing so, they keep our attention from the inequality of income, from the high cost of health care, from the doubling of student loan rates, from the plutocratic ownership of our government, etc. There are many reasons for their maddening rape of society, and misogyny is just one. In 2014 we must remove these Republicans by replacing them with Democrats who care about our nation and our planet. One People. One Planet.
