Anti Anti-Abortion Banners

Buckle Up...your going to need to for this rant and just for fun, try and count how many times I am able to incorporate the word "fuck" into this blog post. It is Wednesday after all and Halloween and Friday are near!

Anti-Abortion Rallies and Banners

Being that it is a Wednesday morning, many of you are probably getting ready for work if you have not already left for your daily commute. Many of you may be reading this on a lunch break or simply on your coffee break. While taking one of these breaks that you do throughout the day, you may have encountered a demonstration or signs that take a stand against abortion by declaring that it kills children. In this demonstration, you most likely have seen a banner or some kind of sign displaying a dead fetus or what looks to be a dead fetus, while the writing clearly states that abortion is murder. If like myself you were unlucky enough to witness these actions, than you know exactly how fucking disgusting and vile they in fact are!

What in the fuck is wrong with people that they need to demonstrate in such a vile and crude way? I understand that in this beautiful country of ours, we pride ourselves to be able to speak freely and say fuck you against a government or group when the time permits it, is it that we have not yet developed a line for the fucking stupid shit that these individuals are forcing upon us?

CBC and other media outlets broadcasted these groups and their current plan for force feeding this fucking shit on us, however since then I have not heard one fucking peep regarding any repercussions of these protests or images.

If you have not already heard, these groups who carry signs with dead fetus' on them all day are planning to continue broadcasting this image in public spaces as well as go door to door in some areas with flyers, while visiting schools to protest as well.

Again, I am all for freedom of speech, but when it comes to posting a picture of a dead fetus and using it as a tool to not only polarize people further on an already edgy subject based around morality,something fucking has to be done.

I feel so fucking bad for the fetus used in these photos, because not only is this fetus being paraded around like a martyr, it has become a fucking glorified image used to spread the agenda's of fucking radicals who take a hard stand against abortion.

What makes this even more fucking ridiculous, is that many of these groups are centered around a religious core...meaning their stand is literally rooted in the fucking word of God.

Well, considering that over the past three weeks, I have personally witnessed ten different events where this banner was placed over the highway that I use to get to and from work, causing traffic, causing accidents in some cases, I am pretty sure the religious aspect becomes moot, because above all, God states in the Catholic religion that man is to be a steward of the earth and I am pretty fucking sure that the increased traffic and pollution caused by the shock and awe of these fucking banners is not doing the environment any favors.

I, myself, have even taken an almost hypocritical stand over this rant, simply because I have had enough of these shock tactics that realistically do more harm than good. Have these individuals considered the amount of children that may be present in vehicles passing their fucking vile banners? Have they considered that each individuals life is their own and as a result they are free to fucking CHOOSE how they should live it? I have prided myself on attempting to remain neutral on the subject of abortion, because I have never had to be in a situation where I had to choose and hope I never have to be, however real world outside of the heads of these fuckers is not as perfect as they want it to be. Unfortunately, there are people who have to make this choice and as a result also have to live with the consequences, which is why our government through the courts made it legal to have the option of an abortion available when required.

Who are we, to judge people who are placed in a position that we probably have never been in ourselves? How can we honestly say it is better to point a finger and call someone a murderer, than parade around images of fucking dead fetus', all the while smiling and waving...this actually happens every time I see a fucking banner over the highway, these individuals take the time to stand there and wave and smile, over a banner...with a dead fetus fucking on it...

I mean, it has gotten to the point, where these individuals have become as bad as groups such as Al Qaeda and those fuckers in the U.S known as Westboro. You may disagree with me on this observation, but when looking at the potential impact of these images in the public and the tactics used to display a message...these groups all remain in the same category.

Let us use shock and awe through something very vile and noticeable, therefore allowing our message to implant itself in the heads of the general masses and even if this image does not fully change them, it will at the very least ask them to question their own beliefs, while they lose their fucking lunch.

What makes this even worse, is that if I was to parade down a busy city centre naked...or take a picture of a dead person and plaster it on a sign and walk around stating that X or Y causes us to become evil and therefore degenerates, I would most likely wind up in jail or with a ticket. However, when these groups parade around with those fucking banners and pass out literature with that fucking vile picture on it...noone has the fucking balls to even say something to them. To ask them, nicely, why they cannot pass out literature or invest their time in educating people who may be a target audience possibly requiring an abortion as opposed to fucking just plastering an image of a dead fetus everywhere.

Back to me being hypocritical, because throughout this entire blog post I have used the word fuck a lot, which I do not personally like because The Political Road Map is supposed to take a rather professional stand on subjects and ask questions, not just rant, but there comes a time when the ranting is required and that time is now.

These individuals and their protesting has allowed me to begin questioning my stand on abortion and I have come to the conclusion that when someone is radical enough to post such fucking picture in public, they most likely have something to gain out of it. Either these individuals are being paid for their public work or they are apart of a group that has a vested interest in the abolition of abortion.

I mean, if abortion is made illegal, people will either have to put unwanted children up for adoption or buy more protection. Now, I know most of these religious types do not fucking believe in contraception, because Jesus will shed a fucking tear or something if you enjoy the sex, but not take responsibility for the fuckign sex or something...

So that leaves one other avenue...adoption or foster services. With many of these foster services being run by church organized groups who are devoutly religious, could it be that this increased campaign to pressure the Harper regime to reopen the debate of abortion and scare the public, is nothing more than a scheme to increase potential revenue in state sponsored adoptions?

Currently, an individual who cares for a state ward can earn around $3,000.00 a month to care for a child, whereas an average foster situation is between $1500.00 and $2000.00. Could these individuals be fucking vile enough that they believe their actions can not only stop abortions from happening...thus doing God's work, but also open the potential for their organizations to cash in on more future revenue and support from the government?

I know this may sound fucking sick coming from me to even think of this possible alternative, but one has to understand that no matter how much you love God or love the end of the day someone has to pay the bills.

That is enough fucking ranting for now, I will just end this post off by stating that while these banners have worked hard to morally scare me and persuade me to choose pro-life, all they really have accomplished is push me to take a solid stand with the pro-choice group. If your religious, God made us free to choose and loves us either way, if your a supporter of Darwin, evolution has chosen us, but overpopulation is entertains the question of quality of life versus quantity of life.

If your one of these individuals holding banners above highways, no offense, but your fucking vile!

Until Next Time!

Our Strength Is In Our Differences

A letter from an unknown Canadian to the American people.
While I imagine the majority of America is upset over the recent closure of the government, I suspect that more anger is felt because of the sheer indecision between the republicans and democrats.
As an outsider looking in, It is hard not to question the lunacy that seems to call itself politics in America, then I look at my own system and I see a truth that exists strongly in American politics. If you cannot come to a conclusion, you stand still until one is found and as obvious as it may sound my American friends, this is where you and yoir government currently stand.
Yes, I know that many right leaning individuals find it hard to accept that Obamacare is becoming a reality, but I wish to ask you only to consider one thing. If a member of your family was to fall ill and not have the support of you to assist them or the money to pay for a procedure, would it be right to turn a cheek and allow them to suffer?
Does not a single republican exist that worships the teachings of Jesus Christ, who himself proclaimed that what you do to the least among you, you do to him?
I see countless accusations that the idea of universal health care is nothing more than an accelerated form of socialism and we cannot have that can we? However, I ask the not a family to a form of socialism? The family unit in essence is rooted on a foundation of socialism and often implemented as such as well. You care for your family and thus sacrifice for the well being of another.
America is no different than a family of 300,000,000 different people. In fact, I argue that America is more of a family than even Canada...that isnt easy for me to say, but you understand why it is important!
A country that sends it sons and daughters to fight for the freedom of its citizens, should not think twice when asked to put a little aside for the well being of another!
Look at Canada as an example my American brothers and sisters! We Canadians acknowledge that our system always needs work and is not perfect, but show me a system that is and lets talk about it!
While universal health care in America will be far from perfect on the get go, it will be the key to not only improving your beautiful country, but also making your people stronger. A healthier work force, a stronger bond between citizens and more importantly a fairer diversification of responsibility.
I will leave you with this simple thought...while your government currently suffers from an indecision caused by difference, remember that in your differences lies a distinct strength and more importantly that the American melting pot that is your dream is not only yours, but that of every single breathing and hell even dead American to have existed.
Obama is not destroying your system with socialism America, he is simply making the American dream new again with a little help from your friends!  Keep dreaming, keep helping your fellow American and if your still not convinced look to Canada to see that universal health care is not your enemy, but a door to a new paradigm of thought in one of the best countries in the world!
