Guess which state I'm talking about, go on, guess. The most ultra-conservative, the most gun-loving, the most bible-thumping...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Newly released federal figures show a sharp rise in child abuse fatalities in the U.S., with the bulk of the increase occurring in two states - Indiana and Texas - where child-welfare agencies have been in disarray.

According to a report released this week by the Department of Health and Human Services, there were 1,700 fatalities resulting from child maltreatment reported in fiscal year 2016, compared to 1,589 the previous year - a 7 percent increase. The figures encompass data from every state but Maine, as well as from the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Accounting for most of the increase were Texas, where fatalities jumped from 162 to 217, and Indiana, where the death toll more than doubled from 34 to 70.

Yes, the state trying the HARDEST to outlaw abortion is also the state with the highest child abuse death rates. AND, in this period of blindingly stupid ultra-ultra-conservatism abusers are having a fucking FIELD DAY. They must love the fact that the crackdown on women and women's rights means more fodder for their pedo-mill.

But that's pretty much how the story goes: the fanatical pro-life brigade couldn't give two shits about the child being born. They're keen to stand out in the cold and demand that women be slaves to their reproductive systems, but as for the suffering of the child after it's born? Fuck no. No interest. No investment. No love.

Frankly if I were going to get beaten, raped, abused or murdered as a toddler I'd much rather not be born at all. But pro-lifers aren't really about the babies, they're about themselves and their desire to be "above" others. They're selfish fuckwads who could care less about a child's quality of life than their morality metrics.

Pro life: because the only life you care about is your own.

The country is going down, but not alone, because slowly the past is creeping up to the president... (Little play on words there, yes really.)

NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump sailed past a raft of allegations of sexual misconduct in last year's presidential election.

Now the national #MeToo spotlight is turning back to Trump and his past conduct. Several of his accusers are urging Congress to investigate his behavior, and a number of Democratic lawmakers are demanding his resignation.

You know and I know that Dickhead did far, far worse crimes against women than Al Franken. We all know that there are a LOT more women out there with stories to tell about Dickhead Donald. Being president won't protect him, the same way fame, fortune and polite society (where women are abused but don't tell) protected powerful men in the past.

Yes, yes, backlash and all that. Men will complain that having more women in places of power will jeopardize business, money and men... but the thing is women are ALREADY on the boards, they're ALREADY being promoted and now, suddenly, men will have to keep their dicks in their pants, their hands to themselves and the saucy comments left unsaid.

All things the current president can't do.

So, ladies, if you have a story to tell about Ol' Dickhead, speak now because the way to tackle a big obstacle is in pieces...

It also means that the girl won't actually GET a trophy because, well, she cheated. By being a girl.

UXBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) -- A female high school student who had the best score at a boys' golf tournament in Massachusetts has been denied the trophy because she's a girl.

Lunenburg High School student Emily Nash's score of 75 at the Central Massachusetts Division 3 boys' golf tournament was better than the runner-up. But Nash wasn't awarded first place and won't advance to next week's state tournament because of a rule set by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association.

The rule states that girls playing on a fall boys' team can't be entered in the Boys Fall Individual Tournament.

I imagine there's a girls tournament. Maybe. Of not at all. But who cares because no one actually THINKS a girl wants to play sports. I mean why the fuck would she?

Still it's awesome, 2017 and the person who wins the tournament gets disqualified because of their gender. I'm sure the BOY that got the trophy is real fucking proud.

She's illegal and 17. She doesn't want to be pregnant. But the US Government demands that she have the baby, even if she doesn't want to. If the person in question were male, he could get medical care, but as a female she's being denied that care because the christian nation of states demands a woman's servitude to her uterus.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An appeals court is blocking, for now, an abortion sought by a pregnant 17-year-old immigrant being held in a Texas facility, ruling that the government should have time to try to release her so she can obtain the abortion outside of federal custody.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued its ruling Friday hours after arguments from lawyers for the Trump administration and the teenager. The court ruled 2-1 that the government should have until Oct. 31 to release the girl into the custody of a sponsor, such as an adult relative in the United States. If that happens, she could obtain an abortion if she chooses. If she isn't released, the case can go back to court.

The judge who dissented wrote that the court's ruling means the teen will be forced to continue an unwanted pregnancy for "multiple more weeks."

A big part is that she's being held in Texas. At 15 weeks, the state is hoping to stall and litigate until she gets to 20 weeks at which point the state will refuse any services at all.

So how, in 2017, is a woman being FORCED to be pregnant against her will? This is some islamic state shit right here. First world nations respect a woman's authority over her own body, but the US, with its back-assward politics of hate, repression and aggression against women seems to celebrate misogyny and violence against women. Sponsored by the GOP.

There was a time, long ago, when women were the ones who kept the concepts of religion alive. At a certain point men resented this and power was not just stripped from women, but they were vilified as the source of evil. In the US as in Pakistan, the only celebrated woman is the subservient woman, one that not just knows her place but willingly suffers for her man and family. Donning pink pussy ears and protesting a symbol of repression being elevated to the spokesperson of the nation is NOT part of that agenda, it is NOT acceptable and NOT tolerated. As a result GOP fuckwads have come down harder and more aggressively against women, the poorer and weaker the easier and better the target.

Until we have a 17 year old in prison being forced to have a baby because she was guilty of being a woman.

Don't throw out those coat hangars ladies, you're going to need 'em again.

Oct. 6 (UPI) -- The Trump administration formally removed a federal health provision requiring employers to provide coverage for birth control, Health and Human Services announced Friday.

Companies are required under the Affordable Care Act to offer their employees health coverage that covers contraception. Under the new rules, companies and insurers need only cite a moral or religious objection in order to opt out of the Obama-era federal rule requiring birth control be covered for free for all women.

Once again, women's health is now a pawn in the ongoing fundamenalization of the US. Conservatives and GOP shitbag teaming together to make a woman's body state property. No longer should a woman have affordable access to birthcontrol, and instead of family planning being HER decision, it's now the right and privilege of her employer.

Women are, in other words, still chattel and the companies that they work for OWN their bodies.

Men, of course, can get a discount to get their dick hard whenever they like. THAT is fully covered.

Being a woman in tRump'merica is getting more and more dismal, being pushed further and further into the past by a guy who not just objectifies women, but treats them with less respect than women get in third world countries.

"The Trump administration is forcing women to pay for their boss's religious beliefs," said ACLU senior staff attorney Brigitte Amiri. "We're filing this lawsuit because the federal government cannot authorize discrimination against women in the name of religion or otherwise."

And *I* don't think that anyone who is against old, white, asshole, conservative fucktards getting it up should pay for their prostrate exams or viagra either.

Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Texas lawmakers this week approved a bill that would require women to pay a separate health insurance premium to get coverage for elective abortions.

The bill will not allow exemptions for cases of fetal abnormalities, rape or incest, reported the Texas Tribune. It passed on a 95-51 vote Tuesday.

The bill's author, Republican state Rep. John Smithee, said abortion foes shouldn't contribute to abortion costs when they pay their health insurance bills to private health insurers.[..]

Democratic state Rep. Chris Turner said forcing women to pay extra to be covered in the case of a rape-induced pregnancy amounts to "rape insurance."

"Women don't plan to be raped. Parents don't plan for their children to be victims of incest," he said. "Asking a woman or a parent to foresee something like that and buy supplemental insurance to cover that horrific possibility is not only ridiculous, it is cruel."

Democratic State Rep. Donna Howard asked Smithee whether a 10-year-old girl who became pregnant after a rape should be forced to pay extra for health insurance, or go through with the pregnancy.

"We're discussing taking the life of the innocent little baby because of something the baby had nothing to do with," Smithee said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Like that? Hey John Smithee (smithiee? smitey? schmucky? nah let's just go with fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater), pardon let's use your NEW name: Hey Fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater, you thought you were sooooo smart right? Because you're not denying women abortions, you're merely trying as hard as you can to make it as difficult as possible.

Also, an embryo isn't an "innocent little baby" shit head. It's an embryo. And women's bodies are THEIRS, not yours. Also you're going to lose that one in court because it's discriminatory to women to force them to carry an additional financial burden which only THEY have to have. Basically a womb-tax, for the crime of being able to get pregant.

So fuck you. Fuck your misogyny. Fuck your double standard. Fuck your intent to repress women and impose your own standard on what they can and can't do. Fuck you sideways with a rusty spoon which, hopefully, will get wedged, for putting further constraints on the poorest women who need the most help, not judgement, not forced pregnancy, not an end to their future, not a permanent memory of a CHOICE they are legally entitled to make.

Fuck you right to hell John fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater Smithee. Oh, and have a nice day.

Because they want to ensure they have people to deport for the REST of the remaining term.

July 17 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday announced it would allow 15,000 more foreign workers to obtain temporary non-immigrant visas due to a shortage of qualified laborers in the United States.

So there you go tRump Voters: invisible wall, tracking down vote-hacking ruskies, repealing healthcare, and now... MORE IMMIGRANTS because why? BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH QUALIFIED US WORKERS.

So tell me... how are those campaign promises working out for ya eh? About the same as any other politician.

Drain the swamp, HA! More like serving it up in tRump brand bottles! Lol. Served up by his "all-american" staff.

Trump has previously opposed allowing guest workers in the United States, though his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., has used H-2B seasonal employees.

Back when Bill and Hillary were tacking the immutable problem of National Healthcare, people took Hillary to task for trying to intrude on her husband's domain. The GOP kept up the constant howl of "No one voted for her." Now, of course they are deathly silent on the fact that Dickhead's daughter just can hop in and "keep his seat warm". Law degree? Prior experience? Demonstrated abilities? None. Just like her Daddy though.

In an unusual move Ivanka Trump briefly took her father Donald's seat at a summit of world leaders on Saturday.

The US president had stepped away for a meeting with the Indonesian leader during the G20 meeting.

Ms Trump is an adviser to her father, but a leader's absence is usually covered by high-ranking officials.

A BBC correspondent at the summit said he could recall no similar precedent. There has been widespread criticism on social media.(BBC)

Yep, it's pretty awesome how Dickhead puts his darling daughter up there, when the rest of the world prefers intelligent, qualified, educated, experienced veterans. It would be like a surgeon bringing his toddler to come play doctor while the patient was still on the table. But Dickhead doesn't think and doesn't need to, so I guess just about anybody would be a fair substitute after all...

It's free speech when you say you want to shoot Hillary or kill muslims. But if you mock the president then LOOK THE FUCK OUT because it's not free speech any more. At least not since Dickhead was elected.

Several theatres in the US have received threats and complaints after a show in New York depicted the assassination of a Julius Caesar made to look like President Donald Trump.

Messages wished death upon theatre staff at unrelated establishments in an apparent mix-up.[..]

"Hope you all who did this play about Trump are the first to die when ISIS COMES TO YOU... scumbags."

Aside from wanting to offer the last person who contacted the theater troupe both a course in grammar and a blog at WoS, it's pretty clear that the Ol' Double Standard is alive and well from the conservative perspective. Liberals have long been willing to accept their position as targets for gun-toting conservative assholes who prefer to shoot first and apologize never. But with the sudden change in perspective, conservatives are in a frenzy of previously-derided political correctness. Threatening a sitting president? It was just dandy-fine for teddy nugent, but for anyone else? DEATH! MURDER! OMGOMG TEH CHILLUNS HOOMANITIES! Blah blah blah rhetoric blah. Shooting a lawmaker? Well hell, Gabby was a woman, so fuck who cares right? Shooting an IMPORTANT male lawmaker? OMGOMG EVIL LIBERALS ARE TAKING OUR GUNZZZZ!

Yeah, right, he bought them legally so FUCK YOU. It was your idea to make guns easily accessible to everyone so big fucking deal when someone gets shot right? It was second amendment expression, is all.

The right is pretty angry when the left steals pages from their play book. Sauce for the goose bitches. Sauce for the goose.

Alternative title: Tami Fitzgerald Is One Stupid Cunt.

The North Carolina Values Coalition, a socially conservative group that pushed to preserve HB2, said it was pleased with the NCAA's move but accused the sports organization of "bullying" the state into repealing HB2.
"The NCAA's boycott of North Carolina achieved what it wanted - the repeal of HB2 - proving that bullying works as long as you meet the demands of the bully," said Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of the coalition. "However, the NCAA had no business demanding anything of North Carolina lawmakers." (AP)

Ok let's beak it down so even the STUPIDEST most IGNORANT fucking CUNT (aka Tami) can figure it out:

a. It's not bullying when you're PREVENTING harm. See there's no proof at all that transgender individuals are guilty of pervy crap that others (Catholic Priests, Politicians, Dickhead Donald) have been accused and found guilty of. So in this case the state wasn't "bullied" rather it came around on its own to the fiscal reality that no everyone believes the moronic premise of HB2. Was it bullying when the Inquisition ended? Or segregation? Or the Salem witch trials? The Holocaust? No. That wasn't bulling, that was eradicating evil. Eliminating social injustice does not equal bullying.

b. NCAA doesn't OWE North Carolina ANYTHING. Your politicians believed there would be no financial retribution. They sold you a false bill of goods. You bought it and instead of being mad at the guys who lied to you, you're mad at the people who bring you money? I guess that kinda supports just how fucking stupid you really are. Please, go right ahead and piss the NCAA off more. That would be fucking brilliant.

Tami, you're a twat. You can't reason, you can't even make a coherent argument. Please, stfu. You're embarrassing your state.

It's Not Me

So I keep encountering this theme: "Everyone else is intolerant and I'm just the victim here. I'm nice, I don't tell other people to shut up. I don't threaten them, they threaten me. I'm ironic, not mean when it comes to making political points, just laugh it off." In a nutshell these people are deniers, they deny that they've ever been rude, offensive, insensitive or aligned with political viewpoints that dole that out by the double handful. "I'm not an ultra-white-right-winger, I just think they're Right that's all."

Uh huh.

I really like all those same folks who then point the finger at liberal anger, taking to the streets in protest when decades of anti-black, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-immigrant anger didn't lead to deaths, abuse, burnings, tauntings, and killings. OMG LIBERULS HOW DARE YOU.

Right. How dare they.

It's not like they put bullseyes on their democratic opponents. Nor abused women in positions of authority. Nor mocked the first lady for being black. Imprisoned people for being gay. Or shot blacks in churches, or their own cars. No, that's white privileged and it's god-fucking-given, not hard-assed-earned.

So here's a message to the "bystander-white-right." You can't hide behind your little curtain because it's so fucking thin everyone can see right through it. Think you NEVER said anything offensive? Think again, you did, that time you were drunk, comfortable, unaware, accidentally honest, brutally honest, sarcastic honest, whatever. You're not part of the problem? Like fuck you're not. Just because you're not wearing the hood doesn't mean you wouldn't put one on if no one else was looking.

Guess what. It is you. And lot of people just like you. And if it bothers you that you're losing friends maybe, just maybe, you need to take a look at yourself and think about what other people see when they look at you. And if that doesn't bother you? Well, then what's there to feel bad about?

I like how quickly the GOP can declare "enough" when it's their boy being investigated. How long did Benghazi go on for? How long did the email server investigation go on for? But only TWO months after fuckwad dickhead enlists the Russians (remember? He actually INVITED russia to hack Hillary) to help him win a tight race repubtards are decrying ANY investigation and already declaring everyone's innocence.

The nature of ties between Trump's associates and Russia has dogged him throughout his nascent presidency, and Monday brought renewed calls for a special prosecutor to investigate the unusual situation. Federal investigators have been looking into contacts between Trump advisers and Russia for months, along with Russia's role in political hacking during the campaign aimed at Democrats. [..] Speaking to reporters Monday, Nunes - a member of Trump's presidential transition team - said Congress should not begin a McCarthy-style investigation based on news reports that a few Americans with ties to Trump had contacted Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. (AP)

Yes, a "witch hunt" would be totally unfair, because if tRump affiliated staff HAD talked to the Ruskies (which they already have admitted to doing) BEFORE he took office and indeed, if they HAD enlisted their support to attack a presidential candidate THEN that would clearly be both illegal AND fucking treasonous.

But hey, it's ok to pursue Hillary for years over non-evidence but when there are actual admissions of guilt AND a presidential election involved, well there's clearly no reason to investigate anyone over anything. No really, nothing to see here. Stop looking. Quit asking. Also the press lies. Everyone lies. Pictures lie. Evil women lie. And they're all witches anyway. Who want to attack the true and rightful heir to the amerikan throne.

Actually, some of that IS true.

Most of Donald Trump's opponents believe they will have to wait four more years to see him leave the White House.
But America's witches are more optimistic.
At the stroke of midnight on Friday, followers of witchcraft across the US performed a mass spell designed to stop the president doing harm.
A Facebook group devoted to the ritual has attracted over 10,500 likes, and coined the hashtag #magicresistance. (BBC)

So the witches are striking back, to which I have to add "and bully for them!" Whatever works for you, and us, well... why the hell not eh?

Because you're supporting IMMIGRANTS!

That was then and also now...

Of course now it's not the "Japs" it's the "Wetbacks" we're intolerant of. Never mind that they contribute to taxes, to our economy, to the culture and identity of our nation, no never mind that, rather think about how they are stealing, overwhelming and committing crimes against white america.

Over and over America has tried to shut her doors when ignorance, hate and money come together. Eventually, decades later, people forget and it's not a problem. Kind of like how sushi is not a problem any more.

America has nothing to fear from the current and next generation of people coming to our country trying to make a better life. And if you're not descended from Eskimos or Native Americans then your ancestors also faced this same animosity... and yet here you are. Maybe, instead of looking for the enemy on the outside we should concentrate on the enemies inside our nation trying to scare us into giving away our freedom, sanity and self-esteem.

The GOP war on women has hit a milestone: it's now affecting women all over the world.
UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- President Donald Trump has massively expanded the ban on providing federal money to international groups that perform abortions, or provide abortion information, to all organizations receiving U.S. global health assistance.
The picture of Der Dickhead spoke volumes: a passle of old, wrinkled, white men passing judgement on women's abilities to control their bodies and their future. Out of touch, unsympathetic, these people decided that women who need health care are entitled to NONE.
groups in 60 countries receiving $9 billion in health assistance are now covered by the ban.
Women in 60 countries now will lose the ability to get screening for cancer, birth control, regular exams and counseling because tRump is president. I suppose it's better than his promise that women who seek an abortion should be incarcerated, but is death better than prison? Props to you tRump voter! Making the world better, safer and healthier! You can be PROUD!

Gotta love Delta, must be getting ready for Trump season, where only white men can be in charge.
A black doctor was left frustrated after her credentials were questioned when she tried to help a patient on an internal US flight. Dr Tamika Cross, an obstetrician-gynaecologist, said a Delta Air Lines crew member told her: "Oh no sweetie, put your hand down, we are looking for actual physicians." (BBC)
A black woman? Doctor? Well goddamn how did SHE slip through? I mean really, you would think that looking past her resume, qualifications, job experience and SUCCESS at some point someone would have said "Hey, wait, whoa, bitches can't be REAL doctors, much less black bitches." Yeah, this is the reality of what "making america great" is all about. The question is, great for who?

When faced with the LITERAL description of the Antichrist, true believers will try and vote him into office. When faced with someone NOTHING like the devil, people will shoot to kill. It's a fucked up world.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A man has been ordered to stand trial on charges he killed his newlywed wife with a crossbow in their Philadelphia home.[..] Prosecutors at the preliminary hearing played a videotaped statement in which Kuzan said he thought his wife "was Satan" and thought "the Apocalypse was about to start."
So a husband can take a crossbow to his bride and yet no one feels a bit disturbed at a man with brimstone colored skin and a gold toupee running for president even if he fits the LITERAL description of the antichrist.
As to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we beg you, brothers and sisters, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as though from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord is already here. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come unless the rebellion comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one destined for destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, declaring himself to be God. ? 2 Thessalonians 2:1?4 NRSV (1989)
I am your voice, said Trump. I alone can fix it. I will restore law and order. He did not appeal to prayer, or to God. He did not ask Americans to measure him against their values, or to hold him responsible for living up to them. He did not ask for their help. He asked them to place their faith in him. (the Atlantic)
And in case you've still any doubt, consider the seven deadly sins...
A proud (vain) look A lying tongue. Hands that shed innocent blood A heart that deviseth wicked acts Feet that be swift in running to mischief A false witness that speaketh lies He that soweth discord among brethren
Trump. The antichrist? No, not really. But that's only because I'm an atheist. Now if I really did believe in god then I would be scared as fuck.

Emily you have no facts, you're just a hater hating for publicity sake. I hope it makes you proud.
mily Longworth, 25, grew up in the southern state of Georgia discussing politics around the dinner table with her father and grandfather, both staunch conservatives. Working as a weapons repair specialist in the US military, she had to be careful what she said about America's politicians. But since leaving the military for an office job three years ago, she doesn't hold back - especially when it comes to Hillary Clinton. "She is a lying, manipulative, narcissistic woman who deserves nothing except to be put in jail for life," she says. (BBC)
Ok Emily, I'm calling you on this shit. First, I challenge you to show me a successful politician who is not lying, manipulative and narcissistic - basically described the character of ANY politician. Your problem is that it's a WOMAN that's demonstrating these characteristics, you probably don't see any issue if it's a man doing these things. I would guess that my very defense of the obvious would make me a "diehard feminist Nazi fans" in your words. Well in my words you're a "conservitard, prostitute, dicksucking whore". Mainly because you were raised, brainwashed and love-your-abuser trained to hate anything that represents change. In your tiny world everything should remain status quo, circa 1950, where women stay home, segregation is still a thing and homosexuals are put to death.
"The one element that separates that two is that Clinton is also attacked for being a woman, and Trump is not attacked for being a man. "Perhaps, since she is the first female presidential candidate, people are ill-equipped to criticise her about anything else, or in any other way, than via gendered and misogynistic slurs."
Women hating on their own is no surprise, not when it comes from southern assholistic shitstains. Sadly these women are bred to be obedient, and those with any potential generally turn away from it to "prove" that they're just part of the herd. I feel sorry for you Emily, but your time will soon be over. The election is next month and you'll fade into the background with no audience to hoot and holla about your views. Enjoy the spotlight, cunt, it's not going to be around much longer.
