Bad News: Democrat Warns That “Climate Change” Could Lead Women to Prostitution

29 Apr

 

You can’t make this stuff up.  From The Hill.com:

Several House Democrats are calling on Congress to recognize that climate change is hurting women more than men, and could even drive poor women to “transactional sex” for survival.

The resolution, from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and a dozen other Democrats, says the results of climate change include drought and reduced agricultural output. It says these changes can be particularly harmful for women.

“[F]ood insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health,” it says.

Climate change could also add “workload and stresses” on female farmers, which the resolution says produce 60 to 80 percent of the food in developing countries.

I guess this was to be expected from Democrats at some point.  After all, can’t let the “War on Women” meme die out too soon.  Now, all that oppose “Climate Change” efforts by Democrats will be accused of hating women.

Gas Price Hypocrisy. You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!

1 Mar

 

I learned long ago that the media is not interested in credibility.  They criticized President Bush every single time the unemployment rate jumped and the gas price spiked.  They now give Obama a pass for exactly the same thing.    It does not matter to them that they look like complete fools in the process.  They ran story after story about the perils of unemployment and rising gas prices when Bush was President.  Now, with unemployment much higher and gas prices that have doubled since Obama took office, they do stories about the advantages of these once perilous things.  For example, back in 2009, the LA Times had probably the most embarrassing news story that I’ve ever read.  The focus of the story was the “funemployed.”  Funemployed!  Can you imagine any news outlet running a story about how much fun people were having while being unemployed while Bush was President?   Here are a few gems from the article:

  • Michael Van Gorkom was laid off by Yahoo in late April. He didn’t panic. He didn’t rush off to a therapist. Instead, the 33-year-old Santa Monica resident discovered that being jobless “kind of settled nicely”…
  • Every week since: “I’m going to go to the beach and enjoy some margaritas”…
  • What most people would call unemployment, Van Gorkom embraced as “funemployment”…
  • While millions of Americans struggle to find work as they face foreclosures and bankruptcy, others have found a silver lining in the economic meltdown. These happily jobless tend to be single and in their 20s and 30s…
  • They travel on the cheap for weeks. They head back to school or volunteer at the neighborhood soup kitchen. And at least till the bank account dries up, they’re content living for today…
  • “I feel like I’ve been given a gift of time and clarity,” said Aubrey Howell, 29, of Franklin, Tenn., who was laid off from her job as a tea shop manager in April. After sleeping in late and visiting family in Florida, she recently mused on Twitter: “Unemployment or funemployment?”…
  • “Funemployment road trip to Portland.” “Funemployment is great for catching up on reading!” “Averaging 3 rounds of golf a week plus hockey and bball. who needs work?”…

Is that not the most ridiculous thing that you’ve ever read?  Particularly after what we saw from the media during the Bush Presidency?

Now back to gas prices.  This video is a good compilation of Democrats and the Democrat Media in their own words.  Don’t let the short beginning discourage you…it is only :30 long.  It is worth it.  The hypocrisy is staggering.

 

 

Will Democrats Ask Obama to Step Down and Not Run in 2012?

16 Sep

 

Will Democrats ask Obama to step down to save themselves in the 2012 elections?  Democrats are definitely worried that Obama will cause Senate and House Democrats to lose big.  Losing the former Weiner seat in NY-9 on Tuesday, in a district that has been held by Democrats for over 90 years, is only adding to their fears.
