I’ve got your “war on women” right here

Choosing not to have the general public pay for birth control and abortifacients is not engaging in a “war on women.” This is:

Yazidi woman begged West to bomb brothel after ISIS sold her into sex slavery

A young Yazidi woman forced into sex slavery by the Islamic State begged the West to bomb the brothel where she was being held after militants raped her 30 times in just a few hours, it is claimed.

The unidentified woman is understood to have been kept as a prisoner of the jihadists somewhere in western Iraq having been captured by ISIS during the Sinjar massacre in early August.

[...]

During an interview with BBC World Service, a man identified as Karam described how a friend embedded with the peshmerga took a phone call from the Yazidi woman.

Describing the woman as crying on the phone, Karam quoted her as saying: ‘If you know where we are please bomb us… There is no life after this. I’m going to kill myself anyway – others have killed themselves this morning.’

I’ve been raped 30 times and it’s not even lunchtime. I can’t go to the toilet. Please bomb us,’ he claimed the woman added.

MoveOn warning a GOP Congress will use obscure ‘reconcilation’ process to pass bad laws. Hypocrisy meter explodes.

I am Jack’s complete lack of self-awareness:

Reconciliation, BTW, is the process that brought us 0bamaDoesn’tCare.

Something to think about

Worth a read, given recent events:

Breaking the Silence: Redefining Marriage Hurts Women Like Me – and Our Children

It’s the true story of a family in which the husband decides his vows to his wife aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on, comes out, and gets a sympathetic judge to let him bring the kids into his new relationship:

Every time a new state redefines marriage, the news is full of happy stories of gay and lesbian couples and their new families. But behind those big smiles and sunny photographs are other, more painful stories. These are left to secret, dark places. They are suppressed, and those who would tell them are silenced in the name of “marriage equality.”

But I refuse to be silent.

I represent one of those real life stories that are kept in the shadows. I have personally felt the pain and devastation wrought by the propaganda that destroys natural families.

Abortion Barbie steps in it again

Wendy Davis: Greg Abbott Might Ban Interracial Marriage

Never mind that Greg Abbott is…umm…in an interracial marriage:

While Gov. Rick Perry is bowing out of Texas politics after an unprecedented three four-year terms in office, history could also be made if the Governor’s Mansion stays home to a Republican. If Attorney General Greg Abbott wins his campaign to succeed Perry — and he is favored to do so — his wife would become the first Latina to be the first lady of Texas.

This is on top of her recent attack on Abbott in which she claimed that he has something against the handicapped, apparently completely oblivious to the fact that Abbott’s been stuck in a wheelchair for years. What new depth of tone-deaf cluelessness will Abortion Barbie plumb next? Democrats should be embarrassed that they think such a mental midget is up to the task of running one of our largest states.
