What the Gov’t Shutdown is REALLY About

This has been my conclusion from early on and over the past few days the twitterverse has been abuzz with it as well.  Today it’s a raging bonfire of consensus.  An example:

AndrewKroll RT @CitizenRick: Yep. #Absurd RT @jaketapper: Bottom line: this is a standoff over 0.17% of the budget and funding for Planned Parenthood.

And don’t tell me this isn’t about controlling women’s reproductive choices or women – period. Because it SO is.

These fucking assholes don’t give a shit about what transpires following birth and beyond. However that conglomeration of cells that grows into a fetus has super-priority.  Of course may just pertain to white babies, that is, until they need the babies of color for news props.

We are 1600 billion in deficit this year alone, yet democrats insist on giving 500 million tax dollars to a private organization so they can kill babies. Truly amazing.
