Only a brainless fool would dare to wear a pussy hat in America

I read that the women's pussy hat march was greeted with foul weather on Sunday.  Unsurprisingly, the gals gave as much as they got in terms of foulness.

Man, they swear a lot.

You know who swears?  People who have gone beyond anger and into madness swear a lot.  You never really know why someone is so mad.  The mad person takes on a Neanderthal appearance; back hunched and leaning in with hands parallel to lower thigh.  Legs bowed and feet spread, mouth agape as another curse blats from their mouth. These are the symptoms of an enraged person who has momentarily dissolved into something a bit less than a reasonable and evolved member of our species.

Losers are another group that likes to swear.  Losers start out thinking they are smart.  They figure out that people celebrated for their intellect are always anti whatever current conditions are. If the larger society believes marriage is between one man and one woman the postmodern demi-intellectual will spit out a chaw of arugula, curse, and loudly proclaim the modern equivalent of Ma Kettles' "I'm agin' it."

Whatever standards are pre-established in society they are immediately agin' it.

See how easy it is?

Now, when the Founders struggled for years to create a better form of government they weren't thinking about insuring the rights of strange people who believe themselves transgender.

They were thinking about the basics.

Just a century ago more than 600 women died in pregnancy per 100,000 births. In the century before that the number was over 1,000 per 100,000.

In the United States today about 15 women die in pregnancy or childbirth per 100,000 live births.

The Founders opened up a way to decrease mortality rates because they believed in expansion.  Not blindly in the expansion of American land, but in the expansion of industry, of education, of science. 

I don't find these brilliant men guilty of misogyny or of creating a patriarchy.  They are guilty of creating one of the paths that lead to millions of modern women not dying of childbirth.

They knew that to conjure the very best of human nature they needed to unleash the American mind from any type of tyranny.  Just as they trusted that Americans would soon see to the end of slavery they also trusted the American spirit would find a myriad of ways to affect true positive change.

I don't suppose they were thinking about a woman's desire to kill her baby; they were looking at things from a much different perspective.  After all, when a woman died in childbirth she left a heartbroken man behind.  Odds are many of the men working on the question of governance knew that heartbreak intimately.

The Founders trusted that when any technology arrived it would be used wisely and judiciously. 

One might suspect that raging American women dolled up in body-part hats and cursing into a gray sky full of sleet fail to appear as wise and judicious as the founders hoped they would be.

Girls, the Founders never let you down. 

You'd be dead if they had.

But, Lord, you've let them down.
