I swore I wasn't going to do this, give that ass of a congressman any attention here at Your Mother Knows. Let's just say, I hope he eventually does the right thing and resigns his office on the grounds of not only being a skank, but for consistently and blatantly lying after the jig was up.
Really, Weiner, did you have to call all those major newscasters to your office, make them sit down with you individually, waste their time and lie, lie, lie? NO! You should have kept your pie hole closed. But NOOOOOOO, just like the vast majority of politicians that reside in Washington, you believe you can bend the facts to fit your agenda.
It makes you wonder what the hell is in the Washington, D.C.water!!!!
But, since it's all about Weiners this week, I do want to talk about something that I find incredibly ironic and moronic. It's a 2fer if you will...
Last week or so, the news was reporting how there is a progressive movement afoot in San Francisco, of all places, to have circumcision banned and made a criminal act. Are you kidding me?!
Not only is this fascinating, to me, that this is happening in San Francisco one of the strong bastions of gay life in America, but that the progressives think that this is a good idea. Talk about allowing government to get way too far into your personal life! (Please note, that I've made it clear that this is the progressives who are pushing this point and not the liberals.) Although there may be many liberals who share this negative view of circumcision, it's once again, The-so-far-leaning-to-the-left-that-they-could-create-their-own-universe-as-they-hang-out-there-in-the-thin-air-of-bizarre-progressives, who want this. Yes, that is a long name, I agree, but if the shoe fits...
Okay, so now I'm asking what might be in the water in San Fran, too...
Because I remember when the AIDS epidemic ignited and caused absolute panic in the 80's. I remember reading, And The Band Played On, by Randy Shilts who stepped us through the horror of how it all likely started and how absolutely unable we were to combat a virus that constantly mutates. He brought to the center the shame of how slow we may have been to reacting because it was thought, by many, as a disease that was only contracted by gay people who didn't have enough sense to keep their wieners out of bung holes, or who participated in lewd and free-sex life styles. And, we all know where that ended up.
I have stood at the funerals of a few dear friends who were taken by that epidemic. I still miss them.
Now, thanks to science and medicine, things are vastly different, even though there is still no cure for AIDS/HIV. I was just reading an article in the July/August AARP magazine entitled,
"AIDS At 30- Three decades after its emergence, AIDS has a new face: people over 50." It was a good read; it points out that many who contracted the disease are living into their older years and what that means. It made me hopeful.
At the same time it pointed out that the AIDS crisis in Africa is far from under control and that it will continue to be a world health issue. And in this liberal magazine, (Yes, I told you I read just about anything,) is where I found the irony of the progressive movement in San Fran...
It's so ironic after hearing about what San Francisco wants to do, that I'm going to quote it exactly from the AARP magazine. In the side-bar entitled, "The Latest AIDS Treatments" : "#4 Encouraging Male Circumcision- Studies have shown that men in Africa who have had their foreskin removed are 60 percent less likely to get HIV, perhaps due to the thinness of the foreskin's protective keratin layer and the presence of vulnerable immune cells there. Public health scientists are trying to find ways to reach more men and encourage them to undergo the procedure." When discussing this with Michael he said, "That makes sense. It might also be because it's easier to keep your parts cleaner easier!"
Hello? Are there no AARP readers in the Bay Area??? Come on!
I just sit here and shake my head. I truly do think the world has gone crazy. When I see what some are doing and hear how they are conducting themselves. When I read about people trying to outlaw what, for many, is a religious symbol and right of belonging. Outlaw what seems to be one of the few things that can keep AIDS from destroying the world. Really?!
Besides, and this is the last thing I'm going to say about wieners or Weiner....I've seen them both ways and as far as I'm concerned, the ones that aren't circumcised sure do look gnarly. And as to the congressman? He's just a plain ugly liar. Just saying.
