Children are tough on the Me First Society. They expect to be fed or something. They take and take and take and rarely before their 21st birthday do you start getting that ROI. Once you’ve killed God and gone down the solipsistic wormhole far enough, they become parasites, aliens in a universe populated by only Me, Myself and I. At that point you reach a certain “weness” with well-intentioned but misunderstood guys like Kermit Gosnell.
You see, if you feel like Isabella Wood (the British mother quoted atop the post) then a guy like Kermit Gosnell isn’t a baby-killer. He’s out there trying to cure cancer. Fortunately for Poor, Little Staurt, Mrs. Wood never quite acted on her feelings of hatred and resentment towards her own offspring. But you see that sentiment broadcast and amplified by leading proponents of political Leftism. Barack Obama meant what he said about not wanting his daughters to be punished with a baby.
To be to the left of President Obama on the issue of abortion seemed an impossible task, until Friday’s ruling by Federal Judge Edward Korman. Defying Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, with whom the president sided on the issue, Korman ruled that the FDA may not stand in the way of the emergency contraceptive, Plan B, being sold over-the-counter with no restrictions on age. | Read More »
It is commonplace for liberals to sneer at “slippery slope” arguments – the fear that some infringement upon liberty will lead to further loss of freedom down the road. (For some reason, there seems to be little fear that “slippery slopes” can lead in the other direction.) Talk about the assault weapons ban leading to more stringent gun control, for example, and gun-control zealots will | Read More »
Wow! Mrs. Peacock, in the toilet, with the scissors. I don’t think they have all the cards for that in your typical edition of Clue™. Should she not have done that? Let’s stop and evaluate…Is the average American still decent enough as a human being to even figure that out anymore? I’m disgusted enough to have to stop and wonder. Is America still a civilized enough nation to teach its citizens that this is a bad thing?
Alternative title: Andrew Cuomo decides to forgo 2016 Presidential election: …Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is putting the finishing touches on legislation that would guarantee women in New York the right to late-term abortions when their health is in danger or the fetus is not viable.
Without a strong central values system guiding a society, it becomes focused on the individual, which thrusts individuals into competition with one another and deprives them of any larger identity, purpose or context. The result is a society composed of people acting for personal pleasure, which leads them to neglect others and their own families, and abuse each other out of aggressive competition for social | Read More »
Yesterday, January 22nd, 2013, is the anniversary of a date that should live in infamy. It was the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States. At the forefront of the pro-abortion movement stands Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger, the organization’s founder, has a reputation as both a racist and eugenicist, but her words on abortion might surprise people. | Read More »
What more may we say about this day in history than that which has already been said? How can we continue to express our sorrow, our sense of loss, and of injustice? And more to the point, should we even bother?
Another Presidential election has come and gone, and the most pro-abortion President in history has been re-elected. Just yesterday a man so enamored of abortion he was unwilling to vote for punishing doctors who failed to provide medical care for children who survived abortion placed his hand on a Bible and took the oath of office for a second time, after having ridden to victory at least in part on his Republican opponent’s unwillingness to even engage him on this issue for fear of backlash. Now our political betters within the beltway and without tell us that it’s time to drop this issue, concede the ground and move on. Let’s be about the truly important business of marginal income tax rates and deficit spending.
It’s not enough to vote conservative. We need members of Congress to live the lives of conservatives. At a time when every aspect of our traditional American value system is under assault, we need strong leaders who can defend those values through word and deed. What has long distinguished our party from the Democrats is that we don’t tolerate immorality among our ranks. Adultery should | Read More »
It was Zeero-Dark-30 on a bleak December Morning. General Screwtape kind of knew this was coming since the first Tuesday in November. His rather unique and stylish “Master of Puppets” ringtone awakened him. He was not too surprised when he recognized the number as Brimstone HQ.* It wasn’t going to a pleasant morning. The (expletive) – chewing began with gusto.
“Screwtape! You misbegotten spawn of Beelzbubba! I sent you to America to wage a half-way decent War on Women, and the best you could do is have that idiot Romney put them in binders! And those deals where they only get paid $0.70 for every $1.00 the men get – you’ve seen what’s happened to Male U6 Unemployment, you (expletive)! Sandra Fluke is sending you the tab for her birth control. I’m ordering you to pay it as penance for your pathetic screw-ups! Now I’m feeling particularly jolly this fine morning.**Because of that, I’m sending you a file to read that might save your wretched and villainous career. This here tells you how China keeps the Little Ladies in their proper place!”
With all the focus on the presidential race and some of the congressional elections, there are a number of important state ballot questions that we must not overlook. Many of us claim that conservatism is not on the ballot in many states where the candidates for Congress are underwhelming. However, there are a plethora of ballot questions that deal with taxes, marriage, and Obamacare – | Read More »
With the election and Hurricane Sandy sucking up most of the news oxygen, you may have missed the epic showdown in Texas going on between Rick Perry’s administration and Planned Parenthood. The Texas legislature passed a law last session (2011) prohibiting any state tax dollars from going to abortion providers or their affiliates. In short – Texans shouldn’t have to fund the killing of babies | Read More »
I’m sending Richard Mourdock some money and you should too. I want to explain to you just how extremist the media is on abortion and just how much spinning in favor of killing kids the media does. According to Gallup polling, roughly a quarter of the population supports Richard Mourdock’s position on abortion — that the only exception in support of abortion should be the | Read More »
Last night during the Vice Presidential debate, we were given quite the surprise when a question concerning a social issue came into play towards the end. Martha Raddatz, the clearly partisan moderator, asked the candidates about their common religious faith, Catholicism, and how it affected their view on abortion. Republican candidate Paul Ryan eloquently summed up that his Catholic faith isn’t the only factor as | Read More »
