Voting Like It's 1939

Old Man McCain showed his face on "The View" yesterday, talking a bunch of nonsense and ridiculousness. He continued to back his plan to reverse a woman's right to choose saying, “I believe Roe v. Wade was a very bad decision.” If president, he would appoint Supreme Court justices who “strictly interpret” and “enforce” the Constitution. Translated in terms everyone can understand: Your uterus will be stamped "Property of the U.S. Government". In reference to interpreting the Constitution the way it was originally inteded, Whoopi asked, "Should I be worried about being a slave, about being returned to slavery because certain things happened in the Constitution that you had to change?" (Let us recall that the Constitution made slaves three-fifths a person) to which Barbara Walters replied, "Us white folk will take care of you!" Ooh girl, no! Babs has not been taking her Alz meds! I do agree with Whoopi 100% though. People progress and change. How can someone possibly think that narrow minded individuals from about 250 years ago should advise us on how to live today? We should be evolving as a nation-not stripping people of their rights because some racist slave owning asshole from hundreds of years ago thought it was a good idea. Yeah, let's just go ahead and overturn the ERA. Why the hell not, right? Whats do women need rights for when they've got men to do the thinkin' for 'em? I mean, for fucks sake, how anyone could think this is a good idea is beyond me.
