Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide, (of GOP insanity) no escape from (a Tea Party Convoluted) reality.
Open your eyes, (girl) look up to the skies (girl) and see…

The GOP Tea Party Crackpots, War on Women and Girls! 2014 We have GOT TO VOTE THEM OUT! Please read the facebook comments. thinkingblue

Cassandra writes: "It's already pretty bad when your OB/GYN tells you {that}you are no longer allowed to request "birth control" instead I have to call it "cycle control" and they refuse to give women IUD's, the shot, or anything that is contraception unless there is a medical need for it other than contraception..."

Cary writes: “Here in Georgia we were just "lucky" to have a jump on the rest of the country to have these valuable citizens in place to make those crucial decisions for our women, decisions that I and my colleagues and patients apparently are not equipped or informed enough to make. I welcome the remainder of the country who are just now finding out how it feels to have someone who has no special training and who sometimes even ignores our efforts to intelligently and patiently inform what these bills they drop will mean to the care of our women. It all feels very out of control and frightening."

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.
