In His Defense, Where In The Constitution Does It Say Poor People Can Have Sex?

Frequent readers of this blog know the invisible hand has given them the that we frequently take the overlords to task for their, how to say this politely, inhumane heartlessness and soulless disregard for the well being of the animals they so hypocritically say they care for, namely greyhounds. Yeah, that's about right.

Anyway, say what you will about the overlords...go ahead...say what you will. We'll wait. dum dee dum dum do dee dee do...ah...Oh, finished? OK, on with our story.

We remind you of our opinion of the fundamental lack of humanness of the overlords because, while you may have picked up on our implication that there is in fact no lower form of life than these people, we are here to tell you that yes, in fact, there is, and wouldn't you know it, it's a state legislator. Surprised? Yeah, us neither.

A Republican legislator's remarks about sexuality sparked a bitter volley at the state Capitol, the second time in three days such comments have created controversy. Although unwilling to publicly discuss the issue, some Republicans privately expressed dismay, fearing the comments may hurt their party's image.

OK, when republicans are worried you might have hurt their image, you've done something right up there with getting caught beating a homeless disabled veteran to death with a puppy or something.

Sen. Dave Schultheis, of Colorado Springs, opposed a bill requiring pregnant women to be tested for HIV so that if they are infected their babies can be treated to prevent the virus's transfer."This stems from sexual promiscuity for the most part, and I just can't go there," he said. "Plus, they're mostly darkies," he added.

"We do things continually to remove the consequences of poor behavior, unacceptable behavior, quite frankly. I'm not convinced that part of the role of government should be to protect individuals from the negative consequences of their actions." He added, "Well, actually it's the children who are paying for the mistakes of their parents, but that's a minor point."

Two days earlier, Sen. Scott Renfroe, of Greeley, used biblical references in linking murder and homosexuality during debate on a bill to extend health benefits to the partners of gay and lesbian state workers. "It's bad enough we let the homos work, now we've got to keep them healthy too?" he asked.

The Capitol was abuzz about Schultheis' remarks on a bill that had the support of every other Senate Republican, including Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry, who signed on as a co-sponsor.
Former Gov. Bill Owens said he was puzzled over Schultheis' "no" vote."It's extremely inconsistent for any person who is pro-life to oppose this effort to potentially save the life of a child," he said."Hey, there's fetuses and there's fetuses," Schultheis replied.

The sponsor, Sen. Lois Tochtrop, D-Thornton, pointed out that not everyone who is HIV-positive got the virus through sexual contact. "And not everyone who is a republican got their brains out of a Cracker Jack Box like Schultheis." he added.

Republicans shall lose and dearly, all the fools that once were their bread and butter. "Never bite the hand that feeds you." But of course, these jerks don't even read. Proof. The last president spoke volumes and then came Palin and now Jindal. Pretending you have an education is one thing. Using it is another.

I am telling ya, they all have a death wish for democrats. It didn't take a chimp cartoon in a cosmopolitan city to prove that. And we don't need anymore Rush Limbaugh's to hope for "more failures." That entire Republican misfit clan is the laughing stock of all countires. Thank God for Obama. The planet may stay in one piece, yet! And hopefully, now, we Americans will get back our minds, souls and self-respect.

I love the way the Republicans think that , once again, all their stupidity is going to hurt their image. Something tells me that God, the Bible and Salvation just might finally help us....and it had nothing to do with the vote. It had everything to do with their ignorance.
