Just When You Think Democrats Couldn’t Possibly Get Any Crazier …

Posted on | May 1, 2013 | 41 Comments

. . . they somehow manage to surprise you:

Several House Democrats are calling on Congress to recognize that climate change is hurting women more than men, and could even drive poor women to “transactional sex” for survival.
The resolution, from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and a dozen other Democrats, says the results of climate change include drought and reduced agricultural output. It says these changes can be particularly harmful for women.
“[F]ood insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health,” it says.

Lance Burri points out the oddity of “early marriage” — an evil as bad as HIV, according to Democrats — being listed among the harmful effects attributed to global warming.

    The last thing a Democrat wants to see is a desperate gal driven to making cheap bargains. The last thing. The very, very last thing.

    Between Barbara Lee of California and Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, no relation if you can believe it, there is always something crazy or stupid going on, often several of both – and a good time to be had by all, unless you are a staffer for Sheila Jackson Lee, in which case it is just one more day in Hell until the sweet relief of death eases your pain.

    Incidentally, the H041 drug-resistant “super-bug” strain of gonorrhea which has the potential for a higher mortality rate than AIDS has been found in California. A woman matching Barbara Lee’s description was observed leaving the scene, but that doesn’t prove anything.

    Oh, he’s got a great scam going now. We assume he’s working on something for ViralRead, they assume he’s catching up over here, and he can tell the wife, “Gimme a break, honey, can’t you see I’m working two jobs now?”

    They mentioned unplanned pregnancy, but didn’t elaborate on how global warming will deprive women of access to late-term abortions. Actually, I’m disappointed in them–just when they had the chance to go full retard, they shrank back.

    There’s an old joke about a doctor, a lawyer, and an engineer arguing about whether it’s better to have a wife or to have a mistress that goes along those same lines.

    If you move to or live in the North East U.S., Chicago or the West Coast you are probably a liberal so Geography Change creates liberals. Those areas should be forced to pay a huge Geography Change Tax to prevent them from having the money to spend on stupid liberal ideas.

    “Transactional sex” could be the new Lefty term for marriage. I have also heard that marriage + sex can lead to children, and further damage to Gaia.

    How in the world can an early marriage put them more at risk for all these horrible diseases? Gee, you would think that the “hook-up” culture that they promote would be worse… Oh, right. We can’t talk about that, that wouldn’t be PC.

    Glad you are back. Hope you had a good time.

    Well I can infer the theory on this: the hot weather makes women take off their clothes so men say, “Hey, here’s some money, let’s have sex!” or “Hey, let’s get married early…”

    Glad that California has no major issues so its representatives have the time to pass BSC resolutions like this!

    The faux-sisters Lee simply remind us that the Democrats are incapable of running a state or solving its problems, and are reduced to manufacturing distracting non-crises while they loot as much as they can.

    Are they so desperate for page views that they want that kind of zoo to attach to their pages?

    House Democrats said Global Warming would push women into prostitution, and they were right!…

    The weather patten which brought us Hurricane Sandy was blamed on Global Warming. And Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and a dozen other Democrats recently called on Congress to recognize that Global Warming will force women into prostitution….

    However, A new study “suggest” this global warming thing is due to hot women. The recent data has shown that the ozone layer isn’t to blame for global warming trends, and scientists are looking in a new direction – at hot women. Let me explain, back in the day…
