According to ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), avoiding another government shutdown makes Republican lawmakers comparable to domestic abusers, The Hill reported.
“We can’t hide the black eyes any more. The whole neighborhood knows,” Palin wrote in an op-ed for Breitbart.com published on Saturday. “The Democrats are gloating. Obama thanked Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) effusively — and why shouldn’t he? Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t have given him more.”
The former vice-presidential candidate was upset that Ryan and his fellow House Republicans backed a $1.1 trillion spending bill that will keep the government operational through September 2016 without blocking federal funding for either Planned Parenthood or the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. To Palin, that constituted another broken promise from non-Tea Party GOP legislators.
“They did it again. But like a battered wife, we keep going back because every four years they bring us flowers, beg our forgiveness, and swear they’ll never hit us again,” she stated.
Palin also criticized the House Freedom Caucus, the group of conservative lawmakers who vocally opposed former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), saying that they gave Ryan a pass.
“If we’re lucky, maybe they’ll call 911 for us when the beating starts up again,” she wrote.
However, she added, her supporters should not abandon the GOP.
“It’s time to kick our abusers out of the House, change the locks, and keep a loaded shotgun next to the bed,” she wrote.
This battered wife analogy is interesting but the battering husband isn't Democrats. The BATTERING husband is the Republican Party. And like any battered wife, Republicans keep the relationship intact and going because like battered wives say about their battering husbands, 'he's really a good guy and loves me even if he slaps me upside the head on occassion.....'
The Bible or Quaran... half dozen of one and 6 of another
…the take away from the story isn't so much what the Bible or Koran say, because the 2 are joined at the hip, Siamese Twins if you will...
... but the comments of the people... who with NO knowledge, no actual understanding, make them.
The difference between the Muslim Religion and the Christian Religion in the West is that intelligent people recognized the NEED to THROTTLE and place a GOVERNOR on Religion.
Because like a GuN, in the hands of the wrong person can do much harm.
