So do I have this correct? A number of politicians, and would-be pols, are posting

pictures of their "christmas" cards showing them and their families with assault weapons? From what I vaguely remember from catechism, this holiday celebrates the birth of a being, one of whose titles was "prince of peace". Pretty sure that does not mean being armed with things designed to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible ( also vaguely remember something about "thou shalt NOT kill". I could be misremembering.), and claiming to be doing it in that entity's name. Personally, if I were that entity, I would be a trifle miffed.

Am I missing some logical connection here? Was some new version of that story recently discovered? A new rosetta stone? Or are they all just lying, pandering hypocrites who think all the rest of us are stupid?

"I hate every one of you. I wish I had never been born."

Some 45 years later, those anguished, angry words still echo in my mind.

I was at a rally for Roe in Sacramento in the mid 70's. Of course there were the woman-hating, gestational slaver protestors there, one of whom threatened me, right in front of police. But that is another story.

One of the speakers at the rally was a young woman. She stood at the microphone, looked toward the protestors, and said, "i am the woman that you people forced to be born. My mother was raped, and she could not get an abortion, because of you. My life is a living hell. I hate every one of you. I wish I had never been born."

I will never forget that young woman and her pain. And I do not want to hear about how she needed help for her anger and hatred. We need to do everything in our power to make certain that there are no more such tragedies.

May all who interfere with a woman's right to full autonomy, all their enablers and supporters, receive everything they deserve.
