Sympathy and Pity for Limbaugh: A Heavenly Dog’s View

The angry, hate-talk vibrating from the States is very confusing to us up in heaven and it’s bringing down the vibe on earth.  We hear the low, guttural murmurs as a sign of darkness… coming from anger, fear and self-loathing.

Timmy chooses not to listen to hate-talk (smart puppy!). He know it's bad for his soul & development

Up here, we really only understand thoughts and deeds that spring from love, hope and tenderness.  What has been amplified from your world throughout the galaxy is not coming from a higher consciousness, but from the basest and least evolved characteristics of humanity.  And this makes the Big Dog sad.

Mama is feisty, especially when it comes to inequality, and I’m trying to convince her that these voices deserve sympathy and pity.  Her description of the men behind the voices would cause her to use more colorful language and I’m determined to curb her fire.

Of course I’m speaking of the push towards taking back women’s rights to their own bodies and health decisions by men of the GOP persuasion.  From afar, this is a very curious and disheartening turn of civil evolution.  The vomit-like spewing of anger from the likes of Rush Limbaugh is just another layer in this ugly scene.

Timmy supports and respects women. Why can't Mr. Limbaugh or most GOP men respect women?

I’m trying to convince mama that Limbaugh needs sympathy (certainly not empathy, as we could never imagine what it’s like to live in his oxycontin addled mind), and that’s a hard one for her to accept.  Sympathy for the devil?  Well, there is no devil, just small minds with character deficits who have the amplification to dirty the minds and souls of others.

Sympathy is called for, especially in Limbaugh’s case.  He’s an angry man who’s been married 4 times, has no children, doesn’t have an education, has erectile disfunction, turned to synthetic heroin for solace, is grossly obese and isn’t able to see any issue factually.  And he takes great pleasure and exudes giddiness when he denigrates women.

If a fat, uneducated, multi-divorced, foul-mouthed heroin addict, who can’t function sexually without a health-insurance-covered pill, isn’t someone to feel sympathy for, I don’t know who is!

This sick whale is clearly fearful of women.  All hate and anger originate in fear and his attack on women is just one more reason to pity this tainted soul.  Perhaps he had an abusive mother.  Or maybe little Sally in grade school beat him out for the kickball squad.  Maybe he was teased for having the dreaded “diarrhea of the mouth” disease.  Or for talking crazy-talk.  And I can’t imagine he received much positive attention from the girls in high school.

Limbaugh is someone to be pitied…. and boycotted.

Although I pity Limbaugh, I am emphatic that peeps stay away from his anger-filled rhetoric.  It’s a contagion and it’s deadly…. Your heart and soul might wither away.

Listening to vile, hate filled talk is poison for the soul.  Creating the space for sympathy for shriveled humanity, such as Rush, is a remedy  against the poison.


Is Women’s Health Is Taking a Backseat To Extreme Ideology

I must admit that I’m completely confused by what is going on in the U.S. concerning women’s bodies and their right to control them.  In addition to most of the GOP presidential contenders, there is a small yet vocal and powerful group already holding office who are desperately trying to dismantle a woman’s right to her own body.

Didn’t we address this topic over 50 years ago?

I can dress like a woman, that doesn't make me one and I won't decide their personal health issues

Today, some members of Congress (all Republican, by the way) held a hearing about the recent brouhaha surrounding birth control.  This furry angel is concerned and pawplexed for a number of reasons. Why is the committee comprised of men?  Why  was the first batch of witnesses made up of humans who cannot give birth (men!)?  Why were no dissenting witnesses allowed to testify?

Women’s health issues being debated and decided by men — Sounds like 1912, not 2012 to me.  It’s like a pack of dogs making life decisions over a flock of hummingbirds.  I know that’s a strange analogy but dogs know nothing of the inner-workings of delicate birds and Rep Darrell Issa (R) knows nothing about women.

Religious fanaticism is on the rise within a faction of our society and even our government.  Stripping women of their rights to access safe and affordable birth control and abortion services is relinquishing rights that women fought for decades ago.

We’ve seen how religious fundamentalism from the government level influences society — just look at the Taliban.  Instead of burkas, perhaps these Republicans will have women wear “freedom frocks” or a “liberty wrap”.  Really people, these men want to control women from conception to death and this dog is frustrated, furious and frightened.

Men like Issa and Santorum are against insurance coverage for birth control pills and devices yet they must be just fine with coverage for E.D. medications like Viagra, since it has never been mentioned.  So, in their minds men have the right to get randier while women have no say in whether they want to conceive or not.

Women’s health is taking a backseat to extreme ideology.  To this thoughtful pup, rule of thumb should be if you don’t have a uterus, you don’t get to make decisions about women’s family planning and women’s private health matters.  Simple and obvious.

Little Timmy Elijah Love sees no love in the GOP's attack on women's rights

Friends — woman friends — vote with your lady parts.  Do not give away your own God-given power to make your own personal decisions.

I’ll close with a few facts from the Guttmacher Institute on reproductive health:

• There are 62 million U.S. women in their childbearing years (15–44).

• Seven in 10 women of reproductive age (43 million women) are sexually active and do not want to become pregnant, but could become pregnant if they and their partners fail to use a contraceptive method.

• The typical U.S. woman wants only two children. To achieve this goal, she must use contraceptives for roughly three decades.

• Virtually all women (more than 99%) aged 15–44 who have ever had sexual intercourse have used at least one contraceptive method.

• Overall, 62% of the 62 million women aged 15–44 are currently using a method.

• Almost one-third (31%) of these 62 million women do not need a method because they are infertile; are pregnant, postpartum or trying to become pregnant; have never had intercourse; or are not sexually active.

• Thus, only 7% of women aged 15–44 are at risk for unintended pregnancy but are not using contraceptives.

• Among the 43 million fertile, sexually active women who do not want to become pregnant, 89% are practicing contraception.
