Over at The Confluence in sm77’s bamboozle-palooza thread, angienc2 adds this cryptic “thought” to the conversation.
What women need to realize is that the ONLY Constitutional right that we have is the right to vote. What the f*ck is NOW doing about that? Nothing — all they care about is Roe. Well you know what? Let them have Roe. Meanwhile, the rest of us women with a tiny bit of sense in our heads need to work together, regardless of “party” (note, all the female Republican woman voted FOR Ledbetter & I bet $1000 cash money they would have voted FOR the Paycheck Act) to fix the root problem — the patriarchy.
Did I miss the penis clause in the first amendment? Or the second? Or any of them? What does this even mean?
It’s so obvious that the rights of the constitution are extended to women that it seems nit-picky to point it out, but then again, angienc2 capitalized “only.” Furthermore, “Roe” is not a right enumerated in the constitution. It is a right derived from the constitution by the supreme court, correctly in my view. It is also a right that is constantly under threat from one of the two major political parties in this country. I’ll give the PUMAs two guesses which one.
Right below, madamb demonstrates her research skills with this.
Downticket – I must have been confusing the Paycheck Fairness Act with a different one.
You are right – I can’t find any evidence that Obama was ever a co-sponsor of HR 12.
More lies from the NY Times.
This one is brilliant, really. Not to be missed stupid.
Ok. H.R.12 is the house version of the Paycheck Fairness Act that was introduced this year, on 1/6/09 to be precise. S.766 was the senate version that was introduced by Hillary Clinton in 2007 and co-sponsored by Barack Obama.
Notice anything? If you’re a PUMA, you might not have noticed that Obama only co-sponsored the version that was around when he was in the fucking senate. I know they’ve mostly blocked the election from their memories, but Obama resigned from the senate in November after he won the election, and as such it would be pretty hard for him to co-sponsor a bill introduced two months later in the house.
So, to summarize, when Obama was in the senate he co-sponsored the legislation. After he left the senate, he was unable to co-sponsor any new legislation. Was that really so hard?
Maybe I missed it, but I didn’t notice anybody at The Confluence correcting this eggregiously stupid mistake by madamab. Paging angienc2…
