Happy 4th of July Weekend, Widdershins! Or did we replace 4th of July with Juneteenth, as the Republicans claim? I don’t know, I kind of like having two holidays.

What’s everybody’s plans for the 4th? Friends and BBQ? Or just staying in? I’m staying in pretty much. Will meet one friend for lunch tomorrow and then just Netflix and chill with my dog.

This is an open thread!

Rather than spend today in the negativity of what passes for government over the last 30 years, I prefer instead to focus on the wonderful aspects of the uniqueness of America itself.

As we celebrate with family and friends, we can also take the time to remind ourselves that had it not been for those men and women who believed that our nation and its principles were worth fighting for we would not be here today!

And to those who have over the decades brought forth the best in ourselves in a quest to create a nation that welcomed all to our shores, a special thanks as well!

Happy Independence Day to everyone!

No, We Won't Go Back

No, We Won't Go Back

A lot of us at The Widdershins are thinking about independence on this historic day. What does it mean for us as Americans, that despite our efforts to change the direction of the country by our traditional method of electing a President and Congress from a different Party, the country is still heading in the wrong direction at breakneck speed?

Many Democrats and people who lean to the left are realizing that Barack Obama is not whom he pretended to be. Leading the pack is the LGBT community, which is planning a massive protest on October 11th. But where, I must ask, are the pro-choice women, and the men who support them?

After Obama’s mind-blowing refusal to overturn the Bush “conscience clause,” and his breaking of his promises to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, it seemed clear that our Dear Leader was determined to embolden and empower the so-called pro-life movement even more than George W. Bush did.

Et voila, the fruits of His Labor (h/t taggles).

Nineteen pro-life House Democrats signed a letter last week to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) expressing their opposition to any health care reform that includes abortion funding.
 
“We cannot support any health-care reform proposal unless it explicitly excludes abortion from the scope of any government-defined or subsidized health insurance plan,” the letter read.
 
The congressmen did not take a position for or against the so-called “public option” feature of the health care reform bill, which involves the creation of a government-sponsored health insurance poll, but the congressmen were blunt about what they do not want.
 
“Plans to mandate coverage for abortions, either directly or indirectly (are) unacceptable,” they wrote.
