This state rep wants to “fix stupid” pro-choice people

Earlier this week, the State House of Representatives defeated HB 2808. The bill, which was introduced by State Rep Sean Roberts (R) of Hominy, was designed to make it more difficult for meth cooks and “smurfs” to acquire pseudoephedrine and other key meth ingredients. This would have been accomplished by requiring your pharmacist to make a “professional determination” on how you’re going to use drugs like Claritin-D or Sudafed.

The bill doesn’t seem like too bad of an idea, but it had some major flaws. It would have increased the size and scope of the government, added another layer of inconvenience to law-abiding citizens like you and me who just need treatment for allergies, and worst of all, would have led to a bunch of socioeconomic profiling and stereotyping by pharmacists.

Anyway, while debating the bill on Tuesday, Representative Roberts took to the floor for some closing remarks. He then pulled out his trump card: pro-life abortion analogies.

Here’s a video:

Yep, while debating a bill about keeping pseudoephedrine out of the hands of meth heads, Roberts found a way to call pro-choice advocates stupid. That’s nice. According to a Gallop.com, nearly 49% of Americans are pro-choice, whereas 47% are anti-choice. Maybe he’s focusing on the wrong stupid.

Anyway, I get it. The crazies at the capitol are insanely pro-life and everything, but don’t they see this is getting over the top. It’s like abortion is the only thing they think about.

“Today we’re going to debate educational funding…”

“Life begins at conception!  Fertilized eggs are people.”

“What does that have to do with…”

“Transvaginal Ultra Sounds!!!  Planned Parenthood is evil!!!

“Let’s just go to lunch…”

“No, we can’t. The food has aborted fetuses in it.”

  1. Chatting with a lobbyist who’s a former Okla. state rep. in this area and he went off on the single-minded intractability of this new crop of R/pro-life/tea party fellow traveling twits in the Okla. House. According to said lobbyist…you hardly are able to reason with them on an entire array of issues…And he’s a former Republican state legislator! The barbarians are way past the gates…they’re in the palace taking ideological dumps on the rest of us.

    • Not anymore, but that was definitely not always the case. There used to be lots of good places to eat around there, up and down Lincoln and around the surrounding area. Now they can’t even keep open a Popeye’s Chicken, the best cheap chicken restaurant in the country. That still pisses me off.

  2. After hearing the preacher take a dump all over the words of Thomas Jefferson, this is more than welcome. It’s at least a small comfort to know that it goes both ways.

  3. Oklahomans ASKED for this rubbish in 2010 with the extreme right-wing sweep of government offices. The turnip truck pulled up to the Capitol steps, and we said, “Gimme everything you got.” The only way out of this shitpile is the long-term grass-roots organization of an opposition. At this point, even moderation is opposition.

  4. Personally, I am pro-abortion. With over population from the lower third of the IQ brood, they should be forced to have abortions. I also think a driving test should be required for a baby. I think expecting parents should be timed on a normal shopping trip to “Wal-Marts”. As well as, I think they should be given a piece of paper that says, “I ain’t gonna fight u, cuz we just need to conversate. Can I axe you a qwurrstion? Why you don’t not like me? Now, me and Billy are going to the store.”, and if they can’t find at least 7 of the 9 mistakes there… you are forced to abort. If you are planning on naming them something stupid like Gucci, Lambo, Drenastazia, or misspell their name on purpose; Kandi, Tammee, Luhmar, Bahb, etc, or name them a mispronounced words, orangejello (or-on-gel-o), sade, brandon fraser, then you are forced to abort. Also, if you have ever contracted two words that have nothing to do with each other; Manscaping, Bromance, Brangelina, etc… Either that or deportation.

    • “I also think a driving test should be required for a baby.” Not required for THE BABY, required for having a baby.
