Nancy Pelosi was correct in her statements about Google monopoly. Any company like Google which makes the consumers on the demand side of the market feel helpless by changing settings without the permission of the person who owns the computer is in violation of that person’s right to run the computer as the person sees fit to do. What is worse is the way the installation of an app on a person’s computer is hidden so one cannot remove such a Google app. Go to uninstall and try to do an uninstall of Google Drive. What is the message? “Program is still active so cannot be uninstalled.” ACTIVE? WHERE? Try to find where it is active. All designed to confuse the consumer in the same way as Trump snippets and other crap from Repugnican hateful liars, slanderers, or those who use baseball bats against human beings, like the Mafia, in order to scare people into submission. If one is not a wimp, as are some in the Democratic and Republican Parties (remain nameless), then you are safe. Otherwise they fear those who stand up for what is right, like Nancy Pelosi, and dredge up lies and baseball bats to try to win – as with Machiavellian theory – the ends justifies the means. That means, it matters not how vicious, vengeful, and barbaric Repugnicans can be, the end justifies the means.
I am a Lincoln Republican who got sick of the Repugnican Party of Florida. I am a proud Yankee who is sick and tired of Repugnicans and their lies, slander and libel which is used with snippets on Facebook or Twitter to attack those who take a stand for the people. I take a stand for WE THE PEOPLE. I believe in what Thomas Jefferson wrote, “all men are created equal.” Except I put that in the context of the 21st Century and say, “all human beings are created equal.” Thomas Jefferson got a fight in the 18th Century in trying to put it that way. Where did the trouble derive? From Dixie states of Georgia and the Carolinas where the white male bastards were fearful of what it meant to be equal to others. Sad to say. But by building up Dixie over the past 50 to 60 years, America is heading back in the same direction of what Thomas Jefferson faced in the 18th Century.
Repeat. I am in favor of WE THE PEOPLE, the first three words of the U.S. Constitution. I am in favor of the statement, “all human beings are created equal.” And to take it one step further and be real blunt. If an older woman is raped (see Stanley Kubrik’s A Clockwork Orange) and ends up pregnant, the life of the fetus is NOT MORE IMPORTANT than the life of an older woman. Medical science can prove the risks to an older woman’s LIFE due to a pregnancy at an older age. This example points out a life and death circumstance for older women.
But it applies to any woman because their life CAN be threatened, especially under any circumstances.
In my mind, there is a fine line when considering no threat to the woman and no rape. In this case, there are more PROACTIVE choices for contraception and abortion becomes a reactionary choice.
An interesting point. The ones who support reproductive rights are considered liberal or progressive (socially progressive as we were called when I was a Republican). That is also referred to as being proactive or, as taught in the Boy Scouts, “be prepared.” Abortion as a contraceptive choice is reactionary, not progressive and proactive. Who are the ones opposed to abortion? Those who love being reactionary. Abortion as a contraception choice is reactionary, not proactive. No consistency which can create something called, “common sense.”
Makes me wonder whether it is the reactionary ones, opposed to abortions, who are secretly obtaining abortions. Possibility because I recall Roman Catholics who claimed to oppose contraception but used them anyway. We were told to keep that information”a secret.” “Keep it a secret when some Roman Catholic guy had a vasectomy.”
Jesus Christ called such people hypocrites. So, we have five Roman Catholics on the SCOTUS. I can stereotype them as all being hypocrites. Should I? Most were placed there by Repugnicans, with the help of big business PACs who put money before the interests of the people of America. We the people, in order to form a more perfect union… All human beings are created equal.
And the love of money is evil and usually behind the promotion of waging war. Putin, an atheist, uses the Russian Orthodox Church to promote his war. Cannot criticize the Russians without pointing out how much Repugnicans in America use Christian churches to promote war among our own people. Or. To point out how Texas oil men used money as the basis for sending Americans to Vietnam in the 1960s.
We the people and we are all created equal. The foundation of America. Go ahead. Hate what I say. Or perhaps hate ME because I say it. If it bothers you when I say this, perhaps it is because you just want to have fun in life and what I say might interrupt your fun? Your life of putting a foto of the food you ate last night on Facebook. Just what we love to see, right? But hey, it’s fun!
And when such hate permeates America to such a large degree, what will America get? Something better? ‘Splain it to me, please.
Thank you, Nancy Pelosi, for your service to we the people, all created equal as children of God. Thank you, Nancy Pelosi for not being a Democratic Party wimp who turns over and plays “dead.” Sorry there are so many Repugnicans in America who are afraid of people who promote “we the people” and that all human beings are created equal, the foundation of America. My ancestors who were wealthy in America and helped build this nation (not avoid paying taxes), lived and died for this nation, would be pleased.
