Rand Paul exposes his bigotry and Howard University.

While listening very carefully to what Rand Paul said at Howard University I found too many distortions, deceptions, and far too much ignorance to fit in one post. So this will be a series.

Part 1: Rand Paul’s ignorance of his own bigotry.

When questioned in 2010 interview.

INTERVIEWER: But under your philosophy, it would be okay for Dr. King not to be served at the counter at Woolworth’s?

Rand Paul defends the owner’s right to refuse service. He then claims to have always supported the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This makes sense to Rand Paul thus demonstrating bigotry at its worst.

John Boehner “Can’t Imagine” Senator Rob Portman’s Gay Marriage Views Shifting”. It begins.

John Boehner can’t imagine someone with the intestinal fortitude to speak his mind in opposition to the party line. John Boehner certainly has made it clear his learning, growth, and development ended in childhood where it is suppose to saying “It’s what I grew up with.”

Senator Rob Portman can expect a heavily RNC funded primary challenge for openly opposing the republican party line. However, he has joined 100 other republican congressmen in urging the US Supreme Court to end DOMA. The RNC has a busy primary season ahead.

CPAC Breeds Bigotry at its Worst.

When racism, sexism, prejudice, and bigotry are allowed and supported in any form it inevitably will be taken to extreme as witnessed at CPAC. The leadership of Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, and others is to blame.

30-year-old Scott Terry of North Carolina fails to recognize a human being when he sees one. There is no defense for treating human beings as livestock. It is a sad commentary that this has to be said.

I keep my horses locked in pens when not in use. I feed them and build them shelter. Human beings are Not livestock.

I have kept cattle confined in pastures and bred them for financial gain. Human beings are not livestock.

If you are a republican who wants to change the party simply fill in the correct form and your party is changed.

How Sexist is Mitch McConnell? Just Listen to Him and He Will Tell You.

Mitch McConnell(R), Senate minority leader, stated “Democratic candidates for the 2016 presidential race looks like a rerun of the ‘Golden Girls'”. He continues to point out the the Republican leadership is 100% male. His audience, The Conservative Political Action Committee, aka CPAC, gives him a round of laughter and applause.

Mitch is good at not only demonstrating his own sexist view but also bringing out the view of the GOP.

Giving women a voice in congress is a joke?

I wonder what Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty would say about Mitch.

Anti-Abortion Movement is Inherently Class and Racially Unequal.

I stand firmly against any action by any individual, family, group, religion, court, legislature, state,  country, or any other entity that creates an atmosphere of fear, humiliation, or isolation coercing the individual to self destruction.

The Anti-abortion movement creates an atmosphere of fear, humiliation, isolation and coercion along the lines of race and class. This shows no respect for the Constitution of the United States.

The rich have been able to access clinics both inside the US and off shore for the purpose of obtaining safe termination of pregnancy. Anti-abortion laws have always applied to the poor only.

Americans are protected from tyranny of Government, tyranny of the majority, and tyranny of a minority by the US Constitution. The US Constitution says what the US Supreme court interprets it to say. Roe v Wade attempted to balance the argument of when life begins and the practicality of the ability to legislate control of a woman’s body.

Mississippi governor Phil Bryant falsely brags that they are nearing the end of abortion in Mississippi.  The constitutionally mandated access to health care by the poor is all but eliminated. Woman’s health clinics are still available if a woman can pay.

Any women with health insurance or other financial means can, in the state of Mississippi or any other state, can go to a private doctor and legally, privately,  make the choice to terminate her pregnancy without government or heckler interference and harassment.

Even when abortion was illegal, women with money could, in the US, obtain an abortion in a hospital or clinic.

A women with the means to travel outside the US may obtain competent medical care to terminate a pregnancy regardless of US law.

Illegal Abortion was the number one cause of maternal fatality in the Post WWII era America. Since class and race are tied, the vast majority of fatalities from abortion are Black or Hispanic. Most White women find a way to afford safe medical care.

Fact: Prohibition  did not stop abortion. Prohibition only oppresses and further disenfranchises the poor.

Keep talking Jeb Bush, minorities are listening and you will go the way of Romney.

Current path for “dreamers” includes being brought to the US as a child. Living “under the radar”. Getting an education without being noticed. Working without being noticed and without the protections of oppression that citizens enjoy.  Now as an adult, announce yourself as illegal, pay years of the back taxes that you were not allowed to pay before, paying the cost and passing FBI background checks  According to Jeb, this is easy. Jeb is counting on the ignorance of Americans to rise to power.

Jeb Bush, ignores the grossly unfair current immigration policy and calls for a “fair” system that denies legal immigration. This is yet another racist attitude of ignorance. Jeb is getting his point across to minorities with this one. I hope he runs for president. He will be easy to defeat.

First he calls for No path to immigration then says we need to be fair.

“If we’re not going to apply the law fairly and consistently, then we’re going to have another wave of illegal immigrants coming into the country.”

Before a law can be applied fairly and consistently, we need a law that is fair and consistent. Jeb misses the point of what immigration reform is all about. I compare this to his brother’s lack of understanding of what War is about.

Hey Scalia, to end a “racial entitlement” is simple, just end racism.

Racism is not dead in America. Ann Romney’s sentiment that Minorities and Women voted Obama because they just could not understand what a great guy Mitt Romney is. What is that? Mitt just did not dumb it down to their level?

I feel minorities and women voted Obama because they clearly understood the difference between the candidates.

JUSTICE SCALIA “I think it is attributable, very likely attributable, to a phenomenon that is called perpetuation of racial entitlement. It’s been written about. Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political processes.”

Relax America, the congress has more than enough votes to override the supreme court on this one.

Congress needs a reminder of our most basic ideal.

Look and the Great Seal of the United States of America.

The American Eagle is carrying an Olive Branch, not an atom bomb on the right . Arrows in the left symbolize the Department of Defense (not the Department of engulf and devourer.)

Reason is beginning to win over Madness. I am optomistic

The house is set to pass the Violence Against Women Act. The Republican opposed legislation is expected to pass by a wide margin tomorrow.  Is this a signal that the GOP obstructionists have been defeated?

Outside of the Fox News propaganda machine, the tea party has not been heard from all week. If reason is beginning to win over madness, the sequester will not last long.

Equal Pay for Equal Work

The first step in achieving equal pay for women is ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.  Congress passed this constitutional amendment in 1972. Soon afterwards 35 states ratified it.  To include this amendment in the constitution 3 more states must act.

The struggle for equal pay for women has been spinning its wheels for at least 4 decades. This is a journey of 1,000 miles. It will not be completed until the first step is taken.

The equal pay issue is bogged down in the larger debate of how to force business to be fair with employees.  The larger debate contains issues including minimum wage, forced overtime, dress codes, sexual preference, race, physical and mental disabilities, full equality in the workplace, and many others.  There is no one solution to all issues. All issues concerning gender discrimination must be separated from the general debate.

America has changed in the past 41 years.  Most Americans are not aware that the ERA is so close to becoming constitutional law.  At least 3 of the remaining 15 states would act if motivated.
