Whilst the U.S. “seems” to be rivited on this whole bullshit Socialism bailout for the investment bank industry, gnashing their teeth and wringing their hands (mainly the executives and politicians who created this mess) I’m burned out on doing research on the whys, wheres, whos and the final outcome of the rush to save the rich and greedy mooks out there in money land. I’m holding out for a few days to really get into it since I need to build up my source links for the post. (Yes, I’m very anal over the situation.)
So Gentle Readers, I’m going to go over an unbelievable outrage being “researched” right now in our beloved neighboring Parish, lovable, fun-loving, family-values oriented Jefferson Parish… Land of David Duke and his honorable supporters. I tried to write about this last night when the story broke, but my dictum of “Read, Vomit, Delete” kept getting in the way. This hits way too close to freakin’ home for me. Writing from a slow simmer sometimes works better than from a roiling boil.
Consider State Rep. John LaBruzzo, a fun-loving family-values sort who is so very concerned about the impact of the poor folks on State finances and he’s coming up with a solution- State sponsored sterilization. (I guess this might be considered better than “Are there no workhouses? Are there no debtor’s prisons?”) No, our whimsical LaBruzzo wants to “decrease the surplus poor population” with a $1,000 bribe to undergo losing one’s ability to have children.
Here is his rationale for this current attempt at Eugenics Jefferson Parish style-
“LaBruzzo said he worries that people receiving government aid such as food stamps and publicly subsidized housing are reproducing at a faster rate than more affluent, better-educated people who presumably pay more tax revenue to the government. He said he is gathering statistics now.”
Is this the 21st Century way of saying “We don’t want those kinds of folks around”?
On the other hand, he desires perks for the “right” kinds of people-
“It also could include tax incentives for college-educated, higher-income people to have more children, he said.”
Like this world needs more freakin’ Yuppies.
Here’s a little bit from the New Orleans City Business News-
LaBruzzo- “If both the welfare and Social Security system keep growing, one day we’re going to have a small minority of people working to fund and finance everybody else who isn’t working or producing,” LaBruzzo said. “Our kids, who will be working, will be the minority and any vote of theirs will be canceled out. If your livelihood is based on government handouts, why would you ever vote for somebody who is going to lower taxes? They never would. So once we reach that breaking point there’s no return.”
And from Shana Griffin, interim director of the New Orleans Women’s Health Clinic-
“If someone doesn’t have a car and needs to utilize city-assisted evacuation, that makes them a social burden? The fact that he feels so comfortable and entitled to make these statements is a reflection of our society, that we’re OK with the most vulnerable of our community being blamed for the social, economic and political crises that we’re experiencing,” Griffin said. “If we really want to improve the lives of people in our communities we would think about raising the minimum wage, holistic health care, improving labor laws, employment opportunities for all people and the educational system.
“Instead he wants to use a form of medical experimentation and forced sterilization on poor women of color, using their economic status as a way to make them more vulnerable to the offer.”
I also read an article last night where LaBruzzo is worried that because of differing birthrates between the Haves and the Have-Nots will alter voting patterns here in the Gret Stet. He was worried that his kind would lose elections. Sadly, any and all links to articles containing that admission are gone from the Web. I know I read that statement. Can we say “purge an unwanted statement”?
Rep. John LaBruzzo is a major fucking FUCKMOOK!
Now, why does this tale affect me much more than just the Racist aspect of the entire exercise? I AM a victim of Eugenics… the things medicine did to Intersexed people years ago in the name of Social stability and normalcy was horrible. We had to be corrected, and often said corrections render my tribe sterile. “Lord knows we don’t wany any of those teratologies (Medical= monsters) in our neighborhood. Think of the children!”. (Screw that shit.)
It has been found that my kind of body may very well have been fertile if the surgeons would have lopped the mis-formed Boy parts off and allowed me to be Female. Did the concept of Eugenics lead them to forever close the door to me reproducing? The answer is- wait for it… YES!
So though I’ve never been on Welfare or Food Stamps (outside of the Gustav food aid), and besides my utter outrage concerning LaBruzzo’s “thoughts” on Social Engineering, I have now developed a healthy hatred towards any one, any one, who voted for this prick or David Duke in the Past. You creatures are the ones that need to face extinction, not those who just live and let live.
May the Goddess have mercy on your wretched, twisted souls.. I can’t.
