Almost ruined my day...

I hate to get all political on yo' asses, because that's not why you come here.

BUT, I almost spat my green tea across the room this morning when I read about US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's flip flop on the abortion debate.

Yes, I am late to this and no I am not American and therefore ineligible to vote but this buffon intends to  outlaw a woman's right to choose, something that affects all of us with ovaries (and functioning brain cells).

This link charts his change of heart and his outrageous promise to withdraw federal funding from Planned Parenthood, a non-proft family planning entity. And, even more insidious, his pledge to overturn Roe V Wade, the 1973 ground-breaking US Supreme Court judgement that guarantees abortion rights.

Because that's all the world needs, right? More unwanted and unloved children (when it can barely feed, clothe and shelter those here now) and more screwed up lives.  

Here's hoping the American public do what's right come November 6.

Idiot politicians aside, my working from home day was taken up with a travel piece, research, a run along Ori Bay, a drive to the beach and a yummy omelette.

And this wee chap who manages to find pockets of sunshine in which to bask as effectively as a drone strike locates it target.



  1. Hear, hear! Romney wants to take us all back to the dark ages and keep women in their place!

    Frightening and offensive in equal measure


  2. He's definitely not a friend to women!
