Another reason not to vote for Obama, the cost of being homeless is surging

And you thought gas prices were enough reason to avoid voting for Obama this year, consider the cost of being homeless.

Imagine if you were homeless.

Remember the days when you could stop by a grocery store and pickup a sweet ride for your trashbags full of aluminum cans and miscellaneous belongings for a five-finger discount of … free?

Not anymore!

And guess who you have to thank for that!

Mister President Barack Obama and his homeless hating administration, that’s who!

During his administration, that asshole Obama and his cohorts required grocery stores to install wheel lock mechanisms on all their grocery carts, so you can no longer have transport for all your wires, microwaves and broken TVs.

Do you realize the cost of retrofitting the new carts with the old wheels? That shit is expensive. And homeless people don’t have that kind of cash.

Seriously.

Now homelesses are stuck buying wheeled suitcases and those little carts that the stores sell off the shelves.

How convenient, Grocery Store Owners!

Haven’t you seen them standing on highway off ramps with signs reading, “Homeless. Need wheeled suitcase or cart. Please help!”

That also explains the surge in cost of trashbags, the homeless person’s container of choice.

So if you’re homeless and you’re planning on voting blue in November, think again.

Santorum plans to remove locks from grocery store cart wheels as the first item on his agenda come January 2013. He also plans on outfitting waterproof blankets underneath the carriage so that when you take the cart, you also get to stay warm. He’s also going to install gerbil water feeders with booze in them on the sides, just high enough to lie on the ground and lick yourself into a deep sleep.

And there will also be a rubber glove dispenser on the sides so that you don’t get your hands dirtied with bloody tampons when you’re sifting around the trash looking for scraps of food.

Because, Jesus commanded his followers to care for the destitute and the downtrodden. And since Santorum believes in all that …

What?

Santorum doesn’t?

He’s a Christian, right?

Oh, okay.

Sorry, transients … you’re on your own on this one. The Christian nation you were born in doesn’t like you. Doesn’t want you. And certainly doesn’t want to help you.

 

Why Rick Santorum would have killed my daughter

Baby Ella

From Sarah Fister Gale writing for Open Salon:

Next month, my daughter Ella will turn 11-years-old. She’s a beautiful girl, with blond hair and green eyes. She’s an amazing artist, a brilliant writer, and she can do the splits without even warming up.

And if I hadn’t had an amniocentesis, she would have died the day she was born.

Just over 11 years ago, I received a call from my obstetrician’s assistant to let me know that there was an anomaly in my recent blood test. “It’s probably just a testing error,” she assured me.

Thanks, Luis V and Becky F!

It’s kind of … but not really … a gross generalization

Graphics include a photo of adult hands holding baby legs. The baby feet are in full view. Graphic says: “Notice: The Right to Life ENDS at Birth.” A message from the Republican Party. A quote at the bottom reads: “Only in America can you be pro-death penalty, pro-war, pro-unmanned drone bombs, pro-nuclear weapons, pro-guns, pro-torture, pro-land minds, and still call yourself “pro-life.”
