Monkeys See as Monkeys Do
I can’t be the only one in America that sees many Congressional Republicans as arrogant, sexist, racist, and evil. Everywhere one looks, the bobbleheads appear on TV. The leader of the bobbleheads is Trump. Their leader claims that the election was rigged and stolen from him. Trump’s Attorney General Barr told him three times prior to Trump’s attempted coup on January 6th. Barr quit on December 23rd due to Trump’s assertion that the election was a fraud.
Ivanka Trump buys into Barr’s viewpoint and disses her father’s.
Regardless of Barr or Ivanka, Trump still controls his minions. His retort is, as the song goes, don’t believe your lying eyes.
The next part of the Trinity of Evil relates to women being able to decide issues having to do with reproductive rights. Again, look at how Congressional Republicans have voted. Men are in charge of women. Women are slaves. Talk about blatant sexism.
Sexism isn’t limited to Congress; look at the Supreme Court. Someone leaked the first draft of Alito’s ruling that would overturn Roe vs. Wade as unconstitutional. He uses the Latin phrase, stare decisis. Alito quotes Sir Matthew Hale.“Two treatises by Sir Matthew Hale likewise described abortion of a quick child who died in the womb as a ‘great crime’ and a ‘great misprision.’” Alito adds that “the first felt movement of the fetus in the womb, which usually occurs between the 16th and 18th week of pregnancy. Hale wrote that if a physician gave a woman ‘with child’ a ‘potion’ to cause an abortion, and the woman died, it was ‘murder’ because the potion was given ‘unlawfully to destroy her child within her.’”
Alito’s stance of stare decisis, which means a decision in the past is valid in the present and the future. The fatal flaw of Alito’s contention is based upon the assumption that passed decisions are valid. Issues like sexism, racism, homophobia, the creation of the universe in six days, and ad nauseam have been decided by various courts in the past.
Finally, the issue of guns in America is equality ill-informed, okay, stupid, and inane. A reporter asked Ted Cruz about using an assault weapon, killing nineteen children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. Listen to what Cruz said.
Cruz and other Republicans in Congress are standing in the way of reforming our laws.
This congressman needs an assault weapon to protect chickens. The killer in the mass shooting in Uvalde, TX, had bought 1,657 ammunition before killing nineteen young children and two of their teachers. At a news conference, an official said that an American soldier would have 210 rounds when in combat.
It is a haunting question. When will Congressional Republicans get honest and think about making ethical decisions? They still maintain this monkey business of seeing, speaking, or hearing no evil.
