I was lying in bed unable to sleep, because my rheumatoid arthritis was acting up again and my knees were killing me.  NO, this is not about me, or my arthritis, but it is about how it took me five years to get insurance coverage through the state of Minnesota, and I still live on under 6 thousand dollars a year, because my father helps me and gives me a job to do for him here and there.  

What the GOP wants to do to me is what I am here to discuss.  I am sure you have all heard of Sharia law, and just to give you a few tidbits, we will ONLY discuss GBW's good friends (you saw all that back slapping and great guys stuff, didn't you?) the Saudis.  Wahabi Muslims are the in crowd in Saudi Arabia.  If you are a woman there, you cannot drive a car, you must have a head scarf covering your face and body to your feet, and you cannot leave your home without a male companion, either a husband, father or brother.  We are led to believe that the Saudi's are our friends.  19 of the bombers of 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia.  They build gigantic Wahabi houses of worship around the world, yet, once these same men, who are not allowed to drink or touch unclean (un-muslim women) go wild.  They drink and smoke, also not allowed, but that is nothing.  The men are allowed to screw anything and anyone they want.  If their sister, daughter or wife does it, they stone her to death in a public square.  The Taliban, more radical even than the Saudis, would not allow any girls of any age to go to any school.  What is the point?  You will be covered from head to toe in black and be working in the home when I get home from whatever I feel like doing.  That is what we have with many of these Muslims.  I also personally know moderate and wonderful Muslims who understand that a fatwa is not a license to kill anyone they want, but a path to a personal relationship with Allah.  There is nothing in the Koran that says that anyone is allowed or demands made by Muhammed that they kill.  They have twisted the Koran to fit their formula of a Sharia world, and guess who is following their path?

Let's think about what has been going on here in the past few years.  We have had the GOP try to block every single bill Obama tried to pass.  Why?  Michael Steele thought that if none of the bills passed, we would all run and vote for republicans because Obama did nothing.  Knowing that, he got and killed Osama and lost NO American lives.  He overrode the Don't ask don't tell wimpy middle ground that Clinton thought fixed everything.  He bought two automakers, and they are now two of the biggest selling automakers in the world.  They are making much better, higher efficient cars.  He gave us health care.  Me, who who had to suffer with NO health care for five years while I was in pain and had no damn idea why.    I finally got onto the state program and was dumped the next year, because the Republican led Minnesota congress with Pawlenty in the lead (be so glad that man is at home and not in the running.  He is worse than Willard.  I'm not calling him Mitt anymore.  He LIED when someone asked if Willard was his first name.  (It doesn't sound too presidential, but Mitt does??)  I got my insurance back when Dayton came into office.  Why, because he actually said that I am rich and I am here to work for the poor.  Do you think Willard is going into the white house to work for the poor?  He has already told us the poor do not matter.  So, then we have the GOP working on their own Sharia law.  Oh boy have they tried to nail us women.  How many bills are currently on the table to take away our rights.  I wrote another diary about that , forgive me Mom, ASSHOLE from Pennsylvania who told us when we had to have a transvaginal ultrasound before we could have an abortion, "JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES".  I guess if we don't have that transvaginal ultrasound, he will let the men in town stone us.  That is where this is going, girls.  They want us defeated, down and quiet.  They want us unable to do what we want to do.  They want to tell us when we can have birth control.  The new law in Arizona that we have to bring our health records to our manager at our workplace to show them that we are NOT using birth control to prevent pregnancy.  That would be against the GOP's sharia law.  We can pay the three or four hundred per three months ourselves, but we are getting at least one third less than these clowns for the same job right now.  

What do you think happens when one of these guys wants Viagra.  There is a wink and a nudge and they get the prescription, and it is covered by every insurance company I could find and it is even covered for inmates in jail.  I say that we get to look at their medical records too.  I mean, fair is fair.  

Yes, ladies, this is a war.  It is a war for our dignity and our rights as human beings.  It is time to stand up and say we are not going to take it any more.  Need I tell you what you can do to any man that is for this?  Need I mention that it is easy to find out if your local congressperson is for or against this?  By the way, Willard says the FIRST THING HE IS DOING WHEN HE BECOMES PRESIDENT IS TO GET RID OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD.  Didn't he tell us that he was a smart businessman?  You cannot get rid of a company, unless you buy it.  Especially a publicly held one.  Willard must not know that, because he does not care.  His religion allows men to marry as many women as they want to.  It is U.S. Law that you can only be married to one woman, but the Mormons still think bigamy is the right thing to do because they want more Mormons.  

I just want you to think.  I want you to talk to your significant other.  I want you to make them aware how strongly you feel about your rights being taken away.  I want you to think about the Sharia Law being enacted by the GOP.  Why?  Because they have NOTHING.  No  viable candidate, no worthwhile ideas, no ways to make America better.  I know, we will make women stay home and cater to us.  We will take away their rights, and we will do that before any other thing going on in this country.  Do you know that they would not work on the extension to the employment bills for transportation jobs, because the Democrats said no to the GOP demanding that NO woman in the United States get Birth Control.  By the way, Little Ricky only wants you to have sex if you are a)married, b)trying to conceive a child.  Any other reason is against the Catholic church and his beliefs, and he thinks all of America, especially men should MAKE women live by their Sharia laws.  

Let's show them that we are not going to stand for this for one more damn minute.  I know, we have only seen the GOP show, and the Obama show is coming soon, which is the best news I have had in a while, and while you are getting madder and I want you all as mad as a boiling teakettle, remember Newt.  Thrown out of congress for a HUGE 85 page ethics complaint, not to mention being on his third wife, and he was having sex with the first two while he courted the third.  THIS is their best they have?

Are you mad yet?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    OFF and let them know why, Dems and Rs.

    History has shown Dem men don't do shit for women unless pushed, so push them.

    Get rid of the Rs.

    Thanks for the call to action, jjmn.

    Republicons, Shira Law & NYC Mayor Mike Bloombergby Rosalie907 .
    So much has been made of Obama, the Catholic Church and birth control by the Republicon Party this week it made me think, based on their rants at CPAC and the floor of Congress, about the fact that the Republicon Party is getting closer to instituting their own form of Shira Law.  Think about it, they want to control your life and Santorum even said that Obama "wants to rule over you" and that you should only have sex in marriage.  The Republicon Party wants big government to control your life like Shira Law controls the lives of their followers.  Your life must be within their narrow belief and they want to take us back to the 17th century because that's where their beliefs are. I am a Catholic and part of the 98% of Catholic women who have used the pill.  They want laws banning abortion but don't want to prevent them with the pilll.  Now they're even taking on the fact that China only allows a couple to have 1 child and what to defund an agency at the U.N. (and the entire U.N.) because of this.  Their morality is not my morality and theirs is narrow-minded and does not reflect America of 2012.

    This brings me to NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg.  If you don't know, Bloomberg started out life as a Dem, switched to Republicon to win election in 2001 and 2005 and after became an Independent stomped on our term limits rules and ran (and unfortunately won) a 3rd term.  Bloomberg is a dictator and what he says goes.  He's also given a lot of money to the RNC and to candidates running on the Republicon line (he has given a little to Democratic candidates but nowhere near what he's given to the RNC and Republicons).  Being an Independent, he had to get special permission to run on the Republicon line and by paying off the Republicon County Leaders he was able to do this in each of the 5 boroughs.  

    Well, there are churches and congregations that have been using public schools for years to hold their Sunday services because they are too poor to afford their own church and even to rent a space to hold their services.  The Bloomberg administration has decided that they can no longer do this and as of February 19th they will not be permitted to do so.  Where is the Republicon Party on this?  What does Santorum, Romney and Gingrich have to say on this matter?  Why isn't the Tan Man crying on the floor of the House or McConnell in the Senate calling him out on it?  They wouldn't dare!!!!!  After all, Bloomberg gives them large donations and they only call out Democrats and President Obama for having the Catholic Church provide birth control pills to women who work in  Catholic Hospitals and Universities (even though these women may not be Catholic).

  •  Absolutely Right (0+ / 0-)

    It astounds me that some state took the time to outlaw Shariah Law in a country that has NO problem with it and yet the Republicans are fighting to make their own version of it.

  •  now I know his first name is Willard (0+ / 0-)

    my brain is producing a mash-up of Romney and the title character of that movie.  Only instead of commanding little rats (well, that image fits the GOP too), he is commanding a herd of tiny elephants who are trampling all over the Constitution.

    As of right now, I loathe all anti-choice politicians with an intensity greater than the radiation output of a thousand suns. 3.13.12

  •  sorry about your RA; about GOP Sharia law (0+ / 0-)

    one of the ironies attached to such a term is that it is used to describe a more or less monolithic moral pronouncements and judgements adopted by the RW as they think laws should be written and enforced.

    The irony is that real Sharia law as practiced in Muslim countries is hardly monolithic and represents a broad spectrum of interpretation of the tenets of Islam so that the laws from country to country may actually bear slight resemblance to each other.

    This misapprehension appears to have entered the US consciousness with the Afghan Taliban and their ultra conservative view of Sharia law.  it is this version of Sharia law which seems most synonymous with the GOP version of what a Christian based nation would look like  

    Here are a few links with discussions on Sharia law and how it is implemented internationally
