In December 2002, W. David Hager was one of eleven physicians appointed to the FDA's Advisory Committee for Reproductive Health Drugs ... he is also vehemently pro-life and has vigorously played a part in the campaign to get the FDA to withdraw its approval of mifepristone (RU-486), a drug that terminates pregnancies. He is indeed the author of a number of books in which he's advocated prayer and the reading of the Scriptures as cures for medical ills ... Time magazine reported that "In his private practice, two sources familiar with it say, Hager refuses to prescribe contraceptives to unmarried women."GET YOUR DAMNED RELIGION THE FUCK OUT OF MY GOVERNMENT, YOU DELUDED HICK!
You see, this is why I LIKED Bill Clinton. Yes, he liked some strange pussy. Yes, he got involved in some shady-ass land deals. Yes, he'd lie to cover his own ass in a heartbeat. But you know what? If he thought that fully half of the country would be bloody APPALLED at him trying to force something politically, HE LEFT IT ALONE.
Whereas this Dubya motherfucker sits in the Oval Office like a red-handed usurper, squatting on the throne with a still-bloodied sword in hand. He doesn't give a good goddamn what ANYBODY thinks - his attitude is "I have the throne NOW, deal with it."
When Gore and Bush were running for office, I didn't expect to like either one of them much. But the depths of my loathing for this Bush administration have FAR outstripped any expectations I had - and I can't begin to believe that Gore would have made anything like the outrageous assaults on civil liberties and constitutional precedents that Bush has.
When the USSR was still in business, its stated goal was eventual, uncontested world domination. The Bush administration has very clearly got the same sort of goal set up for a theocratic and authoritarian domination of the American public. Even if you are a christian conservative, I BEG you, THINK about what letting this administration seize this much power MEANS for your future, and your children's. GET THIS MAN OUT OF OFFICE.
