Artsem, Anyone ?
When liberals hiss and scratch at Conservatives in defense of their favorite perversions, the phrase "I don't want the government in my bedroom" always seems to rear its ugly head, often backed up by another bumper sticker sentiment, "Speak truth to power." After this intellectual vomit is spewed, the lib usually thinks it won the debate and goosesteps to the nearest bong.
The funny thing about the above is this: the lib has it all wrong. They shouldn't be screaming those catch phrases to the heavens, Conservatives should. After all, it's the Authoritarian Left that wants government in the bedroom and, more often than not, it's the Left that's the power, regardless of election results or the consent of the governed. Nothing proves my point more than recent attempt by the Obama Regime to force Catholic institutions to pay for contraception, AKA the Obamacareless Rubber Mandate.
When you get past the fact that the Obamacareless Rubber Mandate is a vicious persecution of Catholics and one of the most blatant violations of the First Amendment in recent memory, the Big Government Willies set in. The fascists in the Regime are no longer content in just telling us what lightbulbs to use or how much water per flush your toilet is allowed to use, now they're involving themselves in our sex lives. I don't know about you, but I don't want or need a deviant homosexual like Bawney Fwank to have any say in my sex life, nor do I want the grotesque leviathan known as Barbara Mikuluski to have any say in it, either. I'm willing to bet, Dear Reader, that you're in the same boat.
Another thing to fear about this situation is the fact that the federal government, like alcoholics who let young girls drown to save their career in the Imperial Senate, don't know when to say when. A tsunami of regulations and utter nonsense is headed our way. Soon, we'll be hearing from HHS on what positions we should use and how often we should get frisky. Millions will thrown away on funding condom recycling studies at Berkley. Maybe Sandra Fluke will become the Slut Czar. (Assuming she gets out college by age 60, of course.)
Or perhaps, we'll get this:
"The aim of the Party was not merely to prevent men and women from forming loyalties which it might not be able to control. Its real, undeclared purpose was to remove all pleasure from the sexual act. Not love so much as eroticism was the enemy, inside marriage as well as outside it. All marriages between Party members had to be approved by a committee appointed for the purpose, and – though the principle was never clearly stated – permission was always refused if the couple concerned gave the impression of being physically attracted to one another. The only recognized purpose of marriage was to beget children for the service of the Party. Sexual intercourse was to be looked on as a slightly disgusting minor operation, like having an enema. This again was never put into plain words, but in an indirect way it was rubbed into every Party member from childhood onwards. There were even organizations such as the Junior, Anti-Sex League, which advocated complete celibacy for both sexes. All children were to be begotten by artificial insemination (artsem, it was called in Newspeak) and brought up in public institutions. This, Winston was aware, was not meant altogether seriously, but somehow it fitted in with the general ideology of the Party. The Party was trying to kill the sex instinct, or, if it could not be killed, then to distort it and dirty it. He did not know why this was so, but it seemed natural that it should be so. And as far as the women were concerned, the Party's efforts were largely successful." ---George Orwell, 1984
