Yes, I’m boring and I sound like a broken record but I can’t help it, whenever I see something like this, I stop following:
Obama said lawmakers should “sit down in good faith without threatening to harm women and veterans and children with a government shutdown, and certainly we can’t have any kind of meaningful negotiations under the cloud of potential default.”
When women are put in the same category of fragile individuals in need of protection as children and veterans, I stop caring what point the speaker is trying to make.
Sequesters, defaults, and debt ceilings come and go. And I remain a woman for as long as I live.
Whenever I try to inform myself about the current news, I end up thinking, “A plague on both your houses, you useless creatures.”
