WHO SERIOUSLY SUPPORTS THIS SPENDING

Outside of the people who, you know, voted on it. The best anecdotal man-on-the-street support I’ve heard is, “well, I hope it does some good”. Please people, if you vote, remember what these people are doing to us when they ask you to let them rape you some more.

  1. Oh God, I also always hear “Well, they had to do something.” Why is it that making things worse always feels better to people than doing nothing? So long as it’s “taking action,” people feel effective. Maybe this is a peculiarly American thing.

  2. Ok, what’s funny here is that we had a conversation once that you probably don’t recall–about how “asking for it” is a contradiction in terms, since a rape victim cannot ask to have something done to her (or him) against her (or his) will. I thought that was a great point. Now here you are throwing the word around. I just don’t think it’s appropriate when people use “theft” and “rape” interchangeably, though it’s common enough.
