Oh, my Gawd.
Where to start?
Shit, we’ll start at the beginning!
I sent Senator Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) a message telling him why defunding Title X is fiscally and morally irresponsible and that Missouri needs community health care providers like Planned Parenthood.
Senator Blunt replied with his anti-choice resume form letter that completely dodged the issue of fiscal irresponsibility in a time of great economic fuckeduptitude and instead peevishly scolded me for supporting a Constitutionally protected right.
Rights are for rich straight white men over 60!
Oh, but wait…there’s more.
Within hours, Senator Blunt’s e-newsletter broke into my email inbox.
I am not fucking kidding you!
The Blunt minions signed this bitch up for his e-newsletter!
I sat there looking at his smug grin.
And…well, I didn’t have the strength to read the e-newsletter at that time.
I decided to read it this morning.
And it fucking gets better!
Senator Blunt is trying to cash in on the high gas prices by advertising his anti-environment pro-gas industry Gas Accessibility and Stabilization (GAS) Act.
Blunt’s solution to the high gas prices is to deregulate the gas industry…’cause in his mind, mandating that gas meet certain standards is part of the problem.
Deregulation is just the beginning.
Blunt more wants us to look toward “more conventional energy sources” and he points to looking for oil close to home (translation – off shore drilling) and natural gas (translation – fracking)…
…oh and he tossed in a nod to look for alternative sources like renewable fuels and battery-powered vehicles.
The e-newsletter ended with Senator Blunt urging me to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
I need to follow Senator Blunt on Twitter and Facebook like I need a drug resistant yeast infection.
And given what’s going on due to natural gas exploration in our neighboring state of Arkansas, I think I’ll take a pass on more fracking in Missouri...
