Liberal Democrats have repeatedly failed minorities — Yep. Liberals have had virtual monopolies on inner city politics and schools for over 50 years. Detroit is their petri dish. Anyone want to move there? Great deals on real estate!
Gynecologists in Spain plan to choose jail before performing an abortion — Who do they think they are? What makes them think they should have a choice about abortion? Don’t worry, the removal of conscience clauses are coming soon to a country near you.
Consider this a complement to Hollywood going to bat for Polanski: In both cases, you’ve got “artists” so insulated by egotism, sycophancy, and self-righteousness that they simply can’t grasp that average people are looking on aghast at what they’re saying. No one with even a child’s sense of shame would defend a child-rapist or demonize a system he’s used to line his own pockets, and yet, somehow, here we are.

Ann Coulter annihilates the canard that “America’s low ranking on international comparisons of infant mortality proves other countries’ socialist health care systems are better than ours.”
One factor contributing to the U.S.’s infant mortality rate is that blacks have intractably high infant mortality rates — irrespective of age, education, socioeconomic status and so on. No one knows why.
By excluding the little guys, these countries have simply redefined about one-third of what we call “infant deaths” in America as “miscarriages.”
Apart from the fact that we count — and try to save — all our babies, infant mortality is among the worst measures of a nation’s medical care because so much of it is tied to lifestyle choices, such as the choice to have children out of wedlock, as teenagers or while addicted to crack.
Also contributing to the higher mortality rate of U.S. newborns: Peter Singer lives here.
But I think it’s terrific that liberals are finally willing to start looking at outcomes to judge a system. I say we start right away with the public schools!
Funny stuff — Colbert vs. Richard Dawkins — It was mostly for humor, of course, but I enjoyed the ridiculousness of Dawkins’ answer about the existence of beauty. He gave his question-begging “we evolved to be able to see it” answer but (deliberately?) ignored the fact that there is no more grounding for true beauty in a Darwinian model than there is for morality.
