  •  It's all about choice.... (9+ / 0-)

    Actually - I saw a tea party girl with a poster using the old slogan "My Body, My Choice"....but totally ignorant of where that particular slogan came from.

    Sometimes, teh stoopid is not evident in the misspellings.... (The "Keep Government out of My Medicare" signs were a real hoot too......)

    •  Perhaps Tea Party Girl was being subtly ironic? (1+ / 0-)

        LOL - this is their idea of clever (from the local tea party website "Protesting 101" tab...

        Signs: legibility at a distance and wit count. Artistic talent is excellent, but not necessary. The protest organizer should also bring some blank signs and a handful of sharpies/magic markers. It has sometimes proved handy, to respond to  counter-demonstrators by creating a new sign, either poking fun at their sign or cause: for example, making a sign saying "I’m With Stupid" and standing with it, next to a counter-demonstrator. Again, humor and creativity count.

        Isn't that clever? Humorous? Juvenile?

        Notice - Spelling is not addressed either.  LOL

    •  But did she have (0+ / 0-)

      any vague idea what it actually meant?

      She already has the choice to get pregnant anytime she can find somebody willing to help. And she has the choice to go bungee jumping, or skydiving, or (in a lot of places) ride a motorcycle without a helmet.

      What other 'choice' does she think that sign is referring to?

        keeping Government Out of our Health Care....except for abortion of course, then it's fine with them.

        This was seen at a rally after the "Keep Government out of My Medicare" signs.  We laughed our rear ends off at those and the My Body sign was I guess meant as their idea of a clever new idea. (No Government "Death Panels" for the teabaggers!)

        So it was doubly bizarre.

        The one that really had me scratching my head was the young lady with the "Give me Liberty Not Healthcare" sign. yeah. whatever. So the Teabagger concept of healthcare was evidently what Alan Grayson was claiming...don't get sick but if you do, you have the liberty of dying quickly.
