Kermit Gosnell, abortion butcher
This man is despicable. But more despicable is the non-existent oversight in Pennsylvania, the lack of protection for women and babies in this state. If I hear another politician say that he is in favor of safe and rare abortions, I’m gonna puke. No one, at least in Pennsylvania, really cares about ‘safe and rare’ or the best health care for women and babies. If they did, this clinic would have been closed long – LONG – ago.
If this is not proof that the liberals do not care about minorities and especially in this case, minority women, nothing does. This ‘doctor’ and I use the word loosely, preyed on the most poor, frightened and ignorant among us. He took their money and took no concern in their health, welfare or even their lives. He delivered viable babies and killed them.
And all this under the noses of physicians in positions to stop this, state medical boards that apparently wanted to protect the rights of doctors, health departments who could have shut him down but ignored complaints, politicians who gave lipservice to protecting the rights of women to choose.
Did those poor, frightened women have any idea what they were choosing? Did they know that their unwanted, unborn babies would have their spinal cords snipped and their babies body parts preserved in pickle jars and milk cartons, decorating his office and stored in his office refrigerator?
Oh, I think not.
And to add insult to injury, Gossnel was preforming abortions after the legal gestational age. (24 weeks is the limit, after that abortions are criminal in the state of Pennsylvania.)
Did these women know that they would leave his office with venereal disease, perforated organs and raging infections? Did they know that they would leave his office sterile?
Was it worth the $400 cash and late night abortions, for all this?
There should be no doubt what the answer is.
Where in all of this is NOW? Not a word from them – AGAIN – about something that threatens the health, welfare and life of women, especially minority women who they brag so loudly that they champion and protect.
There is no justice for a man like this. But he is not alone in guilt. The entire liberal system should be held to account for this. The evidence is clear: he is a murderer and the system is just as culpable. There is no concern by the liberals for the welfare of the poor, there never has been. Pennsylvania was run by pro-abortion politicians for decades. Their excuse to not securing and protecting the health and safety of the female patients was their concern that they would be erecting barriers to their almighty right to choice! These progressives have protected and by silence, encouraged the very thing they profess to want to eradicate: back alley, midnight abortions and abortion butchers.
I call BullShit on all of that! They care nothing for those most vulnerable patients – the women and the unborn babies. What they do care about is the votes they will get from those mostly minority communities.
In the end, it’s all about the votes, even if it means you have to lie to minorities to get them.

I know that almost everyone who reads here (all 4 of you) already get this in your email every morning, but it’s worth posting to my blog anyway, in light of the current White House resident:
“[The President] is the dignified, but accountable magistrate of a free and great people. The tenure of his office, it is true, is not hereditary; nor is it for life: but still it is a tenure of the noblest kind: by being the man of the people, he is invested; by continuing to be the man of the people, his investiture will be voluntarily, and cheerfully, and honourably renewed.” –James Wilson, Lectures on Law, 1791

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the stupidest thing I’ve read all day – even though the day is only 6am where I live and there’s plenty of time for more stupid things. And it’s a sure bet that there will be equally if not superior stupid things yet to come in this 24 hour period.
Number 1, this bill will never pass due to privacy issues and because of that, it should not pass. I sure wouldn’t want anyone for a mere $100 to be able to get my birth certificate.
Secondly, this bill would not even have been contemplated if the president of the United States took 5 minutes out of his busy schedule filming YouTube videos to tell us to stop eating tater tots, to clear this up, once and for all. But if he really is an American citizen, it’s to his benefit to keep up the conspiracy theories.
Regardless of the truth about his citizenship, this is a win/win for him. He need say nothing and just let the liberal media loose on the “birthers.”
Up until now, for the most part, those who opposed Obama’s policies could not just be opposed to his policies on principle and facts but because they are racist. Now the liberal media and bloggers can include nutty, right-wing birther conspiracy theorists. But they won’t say it that nicely.
I can see all the angles to this birth certificate issue. Part of me agrees with the so-called birthers, while another part of me is cynical enough to think that Obama has just nurtured this conspiracy thing to his benefit.
So, to make my opinion clear on this topic :

St. Thomas More
St. Thomas More was a confidant of Henry VIII, and at one point he was Lord Chancellor. But he eventually fell out of favor with the King when he refused to acknowledge Henry as the head of the Church of England and would not support his separation from the Catholic Church. Henry wanted to divorce his wife, Catherine of Aragon in order to marry the younger, Anne Bolyen. Thomas would not support this nor would he pledge allegiance to Henry’s new self-appointed position running the Church of England.
After a short stay in the Tower, Henry had Thomas beheaded for the crime of treason.
The interesting trivia about More is that he is the first to coin the word “Utopia.” It was from his work of fiction that is commonly known now as Utopia, although the original title is more elaborate and has several versions. Utopia in Greek means “no place.” But depending on the spelling and pronunciation, it can also mean “good land” which is what More actually had in mind when he wrote this piece of fiction.
Utopia was an island where land was owned by no one, it was all communal. Men and women were educated equally, just as More practiced in his personal life: his daughters were all educated as well or better than most men in England at the time. Religious tolerance was practiced except in the case of the non-believers. Atheists were not tolerated because, as the main character in his book, Hythlodeaus noted: a man who does not believe in a Supreme Creator, can never be trusted because he will never respect authority or any thing higher than himself.
The idea of the greatness and liberty of the individual seemed to be in conflict for More. On the one hand, he believed, encouraged and provided a first class education for his daughters while at the same time, he wrote a novel that promoted the “perfect” order and discipline of the community as one group, basically forsaking the greatness of the individual man – or woman.

A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it gives people what they want instead of a what a particular group thinks it ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself. Milton Friedman
And this is the problem in our country now. We have a ruling class that thinks we “ought to want” toxic, curly fry light bulbs, for instance. (I wish I’d thought of that mercury light bulb description first, but credit goes to Mark Steyn.) How dare we want to buy what we want? How could we possibly know what’s best for us or what we can afford or what we want to afford? We aren’t smart enough to choose for ourselves. All options are taken away for the greater good, because they know what the greater good is. Only they know what’s best for you and me.
They are attempting to take away our freedom of choice – unless it’s the life of an unborn baby, and then everyone has that right to choose death over life. Isn’t it amazing how important choice is to these statists until it comes to the type of shower head in your bathroom or the kind of car you drive?
It’s nothing more than a total disdain for everyone’s freedom but their own. And the only individuals they respect are themselves.

While reading The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism by Kevin Williamson this morning, I stumbled on one of those things that just stupefy you.
In 1981, a writer for the NYT wrote about mountains of rotting navel oranges in California. The point was to keep the prices of oranges high for the farmers and to prevent consumers from buying oranges at lower prices. This was a federal order.
When an FDA bureaucrat was asked why the government was ordering that good food rot on the ground, his response was, “Oranges are not an essential food. People don’t need oranges. They can take vitamins.”
The fact that you might want to eat them, that you might want to buy them at a lower price makes no difference to the government. All that matters is that they are not “an essential food” and therefore the government can do what it wants to manipulate the market. In theory, no one will die if they don’t get to eat oranges, so the government can control the market and ensure that farmers make more money by screwing the orange eating consumer.
Of course it’s not just oranges that our government is controlling. Corn, wheat and other grown commodities are part of government subsidies.
Our government: so amazing.

From Obama’s remarks regarding Roe v. Wade:
Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.
So what do you call ObamaCare, then if it’s not an intrusion in the private and very PERSONAL matters of an individual and his family?
I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.
His support is through Planned Parenthood which are nothing more than government funded abortion clinics that are aimed at minorities, especially Black Americans. Employees at these facilities are on tape saying as much. This is government sanctioned genocide, primarily against the Black community.
And there is no constitutional right to an abortion, just as there is no constitutional right to force any American to buy anything, including health insurance.
And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.
What he’s saying is that the “burden” of unwanted pregnancies and abortion falls squarely on the woman and men are off the hook. He’s on record as saying that he didn’t want his “daughters punished” with an unintended and unwanted baby. But there is no “punishment” for the father, no burden for him. He can go his merry way and “fulfill his dreams” while the mother is left to the decision of abortion or the “burden” of caring for a child and her dreams are lost. Her future is bleak, that of being an single parent.
The burden of single parenthood is shouldered by the mother and the taxpayers with little or no consequences for the father. I see nothing in his statement – aside from “encouraging healthy relationships” and how he plans to do that from the WH is a mystery to me – that promotes the responsibility of fathers in this matter. On the contrary in fact, by this part of his statement: same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

I actually thought that “Little Mosque on the Prairie” was a joke but it’s apparently a Canadian sit-com that’s been airing since ’07. Those forward seeing Canucks have been ahead of us for that long!
Recently, there’s been a call from Katie Couric and now Clarence Page (a Black journalist) is on board for the networks to do our own version of a muslim Cosby show. Page says that the muslim community in America has replaced the Black Americans as the lowest of the low in our society: since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: Muslims have become the new “Negroes,” the new occupants of the bottom-rung scary-minority status long occupied by us African-Americans.
I’m not going to argue that Muslims are “the scary-minority”. It is what it is. Even fellow Black journalist/commentator Juan Williams has his share of Islamophobia.
But on the topic of a Cosby-type show for the average Muslim family living in America, here’s a take I wonder if any Hollywood writers would consider:
The beautiful Muslim actress, Afshan Azad was in an English courtroom because her 28 year old brother beat her. The 21 year old actress’ crime was that she had a Hindu boyfriend. Although she endured 3 hours of being punched, strangled, and dragged by her hair by her brother, she still pleaded for the judge’s leniency during the sentencing hearing, and asked he not be jailed.
Not only did she endure this nightmare experience at the hands of her older brother but on other occasions she was threatened and verbally abused by her parents. And all in the name of dishonoring her Muslim family. Interesting story at FoxNews

Yes, this all happened in England but the same if not worse has been happening in America for a long time, and has largely gone unnoticed by the media here. I don’t think anyone has to wonder why the media wants to cover-up these atrocities. There are cases in Phoenix, in Texas and in New York of women and girls being beaten, murdered and beheaded that no one wants to talk about.
Oh, I can see this story line on a Cosby-like Muslim show: controlling your young daughter who is in love with an infidel. Or the question of living in a republic that conflicts with sharia law.
The Cosby Show was about 2 educated, professional parents raising a family. It just so happens they were a black family but their story and humor resonated across all races in America. How can a Muslim family sit-com do the same thing when the devout must follow sharia law and that includes punishing daughters and wives who fall short of their horrendous laws?
I look at this pretty girls picture and wonder when it will be her turn to die. How soon before it happens to her? And at the hands of the people who gave her life.
This is a story line that I don’t see any networks ever picking up.

Scarcely a fortnight ago, Keith Olbermann was calling for Sarah Palin’s dismissal from politics.
Now Olbermann has been dismissed from the airwaves.
This is what we call poetic justice.
The American Spectator
I can hardly wait to hear what Rush and Levin have to say on Monday! And if Madcow, the DeadHeadEd and Matthews aren’t quaking in their boots, they’re just ignorant.

George Washington statue from FoxNation
The monument of George Washington was concealed from the crowd during the annual King Day at the Dome rally.
The NAACP says no insult to Washington was intended – the three-sided structure that covered the front and sides of the statue was intended to display a rally graphic.
Doesn’t this just make you sick? The nation was forced to honor MLK day but those who honor and forced the rest of us to do so, feel no problem showing this kind of disrespect for our Founding Father.
It’s time to force the end of the Congressional Black and Latino Caucuses. They do nother but foster and encourage more racism in America. If we want a color blind nation, as almost all of us do, then these caucuses should be disbanded. We are all Americans, regardless of color, race or ethnicity and the continued volunteered segregation by people of color, does nothing to bring us together as a nation.
