Vintage Prosey Project: 2014 Prioritization — 7/3/13

Updating the blog here to pull old entries from the pros/e/yes archives…in their original order. This project is simply a unification of my personal blog (with a LOT of NSFW entries) and my professional blog.

Hump Day…Looks Like Egg Drop Soup To Me…NSFW

Initial Egg Drop Soup rant…the slightly calmer update…and the Land of Egg Drop Soup revisit, complete with the Broken Cherry on a Tuesday video embedded.

When I made the video…and later when I wrote the Land of Egg Drop Soup entries…I was emotionally charged. As I am now. Except…right this moment…I’m very deliberately disconnected. By choice. Because I know I have to mentally distance myself if I’m going to write in any sort of coherent fashion.

When I wrote those entries, I knew I wasn’t writing in any sort of vacuum. I knew that I wasn’t the only person feeling like my brain had turned to egg drop soup. It just felt like –in those moments of anger and frustration– like I was the only one who saw egg drop soup.

Well, I’m here to tell you…we are ALL in the Land of Egg Drop Soup now.

Please read this. I’ll wait, honest. It’s really short. There’s even a graphic if that helps. Hey, I’m even including the graphic here:

…and yeah, I know I’m making it larger than I usually do in here. Click on it, it should get even bigger…just in case you have difficulty reading it.

For some folks, the above might be shocking. For me, it’s not. At all.

Presently, I’m simply numb. I’m looking at seven states. Seven.

The above chart is as of two days ago. No, not all states are listed there, obviously.

Anyway…when I got up this morning, there was little in the news about what I observed last night. I read this blurb about Chairman Cook…and sighed. Of course, you can now find the news in HuffPo…and in NBC…and even over in FNN. Amazingly. I haven’t looked at how each example given chose to spin the story…and I have deliberately avoided the comments sections (no thank you!).

Regardless, seeing that…I don’t think it’s in any way alarmist or hyperbolic to state plainly that what is happening in Texas, in Ohio, in North Dakota, in North Carolina…coming soon to other states now that the precedent is set…

…there’s going to be a bit MORE ugliness coming to those states, and to a state near you.

…and the reason that this particular entry is labeled as NSFW is THIS is what the Land of Egg Drop Soup looks like:

No. I am not going to pixelate the image the way I chose to in my video.

That woman pictured above is DEAD. In a pool of her own blood. She was MANY women. She was a wife. She was a daughter. She was a mother. She was a sister. She was a friend.

She was a LIVING HUMAN BEING. That is what these laws do.

Taking away access away from millions of women to safe, legal abortion…which is a Constitutionally-protected RIGHT…to “save” a fetus that cannot sustain its own life without its host…thinking that they’re somehow going to stop abortions from happening? Look at that picture. That is coming to a city near you, Texas…Ohio…North Dakota…etc…

I’m done for today, because the very subversion of language that compels people to call themselves “pro-life” makes my head hurt.
