Small Government!

Looks pretty personal, doesn't it? That lady with the latex gloves: the Government.

When people like Michele Bachmann (R-Batshit) jabber inanely about “small government”, what they mean is government so small it can crawl up your vagina and do an ultrasound of the contents of your womb:

Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) proposed a bill on Thursday that would force women in the early stages of pregnancy to have a physically invasive and medically unnecessary ultrasound procedure before they can legally consent to having an abortion.

One couldn’t be blamed for asking why.  It can’t be because women are too stupid to know what pregnancy means: obviously they’re cognizant of everything it means, physically and to their lives personally, or they wouldn’t have made the decision to terminate.  But even having made the right choice on an intellectual level, some women find themselves on shaky emotional ground over this most personal of decisions.  The odious misogynist creeps who call themselves “pro-lifers” long ago figured out that this was a vulnerability just waiting to be exploited, and that’s what forced ultrasounds are meant to do.  With so many states in the US casually legislating forced ultrasound, you have to wonder about the road they’re on and where the next turnoff might lead.

There’s an awful lot of hand-wringing and pearl-clutching about a largely mythical problem known as “coerced abortion“;  welcome to coerced childbirth.  For real.  Not even by a partner or parent but by the state.

Sorry Michele, but it doesn’t get any Bigger Government than that.

    Small government only means small government when and where the small government fetishists want small government. The most certainly do want their small government hands on their medicare or postal services, those work quite well without government interference thank you very much. What they really want to do is get government small enough to get out of their way of enforcing their beliefs upon the rest of society.

    Hi Bleatmop

    I think when people like Bachmann say “small government” all they really mean is “no taxes”. (Until they do a quick doubletake and realize that this would also mean no cops, no military, and no jobs for them since, ironically, they are the government.)

    They certainly don’t mind an intrusive government as long as it’s intruding into things they don’t like or aren’t affected by. In fact, they seem to like it that way. Ron Paul is about the only one I take seriously in that context.

    And small government rarely means less military.

    Funny how that works. Even though, if you look at the States, the military eats up a lot of their revenue.

    With all dues of respect, this is the first time in history a liberal woman has ever complained about something being shoved in their vagina.

    Ooh — sounds like someone’s not getting any.

    I’m not really sure how my statement implied such a thing…

    Yah it didn’t, just keep fantasizing about liberal women getting things “shoved up their vaginas”.

    Ohh Ouch.Got me on that one. Being conservative, I have higher moral standards than to do such a thing as “fantasize” about liberals. I tend to look for family values, integrity, and responsibility in my spouses. So in all reality, a liberal is the last thing I’d fantasize to…

    Settle down there, pally 😉 I’m not exactly a stone liberal either. Hang around…

    I’m sorry. I just get worked up

Wait. What?
