Ryan a Veteran General of "Shock and Awe" Against Women

"Shock and Awe" Against women. War takes two sides to engage, women have not indulged in attacks on the GOP.

Paul Ryan seems to be a typical Republican "gutted suit". He is not only an empty seat, he is strikingly non-compassionate about all things human or I should say humane.

Ryan's voting record since his joining the House in 1999, has been a mere 'rubber stamping of Americas Right-wing agenda. Factually he is verging on a model of far-right extremism.

Before we go further, I ask that you take a few minutes and listen to Glenn Back and Paul Ryan. I will not characterize the radio interview beyond stating, "Ryan takes time to talk with one of the  Right's zaniest ideologue nut-cases".

[NOTE:The following video has shown indications improper play, so I have embed a second version. One will be removed in 24 hours.]

A quick Google search yielded another version.



The video becomes relevant at the 5:40 Minute mark of the embed. If you are like  me and avoid the likes of Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Doocy, Carlson, Van Sustren, Ingraham, Candy Crowley, Coulter and others, you may want to skip to the 5:40 mark.


Ryan and his psyche, shaped by "past" affinity for Ayn Rand's theories and philosophies,  lumps all progressives into a bundle he practically labels as 'subversive".  The audacity of such dialogue is, we have two very wealthy people who are completely insulted from any economic strife, postulating on how we live our lives.  They make hyperbolic statements and judgments without regard for the economic world they created between 2000 and September 2008.  He disregards the history of the progressive movement's impact on the quality of life in our nation.  Republicans fought Social Security as if fighting an armed enemy on a battlefield. The party fought Lyndon Johnson's Medicare Programs like a cornered Bengal Tiger.    Conservatives regardless of label (DEM of Republican) fought Civil Rights and Voting rights legislation. Progressives back collective-bargaining; collect bargaining gave us  employee benefits, not benevolent employers. Factually, conservatives not only resisted the dismantling of Jim Crow Laws, they fought against Women's Suffrage. I ask that you think a moment about one conservative who espouses the virtues , acceptance and fairness of inclusivity and tolerance of LGBT Americans (people).  A noted and expert Romney adviser was asked off the campaign team based solely on his sexual orientation!

We have published regarding Ryan's Path to Prosperity.  We want to borrow from The Feministing dot Com webpage. 



Why Paul Ryan is bad news for women (and everyone else)

As you all know, Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan as his Vice Presidential pick on Saturday morning. And as most of you probably know, he’s kind of a terrible person. His infamous budget plan would decimate safety net programs for the poorest Americans, he pretty much believes that climate change is a conspiracy theory, and is a huge fan boy of big oil. The man’s priorities are just about as toxic as his hair gel.
Except Itemized list from Venessa (see link above)He voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.  This isn’t a controversial issue, y’all. It simply protects women from being denied equal pay for equal work. I think we can all agree this is a no-brainer. (Except Paul Ryan.)He is the anti-choice poster boy. Ryan would overturn Roe v. Wade, banning abortion in cases of rape and incest and when the mother’s life is at risk. He also was a co-sponsor of the Sanctity for Human Life Act, a personhood amendment which would ban abortion as well as certain kinds of fertility treatment and birth control. He’s voted at least four times to defund Planned Parenthood (and all of the preventative health care that comes with it for millions of people).He’d like to steal from the poor and give to the rich. Women are the majority of the recipients of both Medicare and (a sizable 69% of ) Medicaid, and the majority of the Medicaid population are people of color. .....He’s against the Affordable Care Act. Which speaks for itself. He’s also vehemently against the law’s birth control coverage......He’s consistently against LGBT rights. Ryan has voted against gay couples adopting, against marriage equality, and voted no to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.......His record on immigration is terrible. He’s voted against the DREAM Act .......

There are other screeds with emphasis on Ryan's roboticism; personally I like the Feministing Dot Com screed.
