Best. Pro-life ad. Ever. Don’t worry, it isn’t graphic. But if you think the message is harsh, the reality is a million times worse. Make it viral, please! HT: Jill Stanek
“Only they’re not bunnies.” Priceless. Hey, if they were bunnies, it would be illegal already.
Ask your Congressional representatives to de-fund PP now. It isn’t just the abortions, it is the serial hiding of statutory rape and sex crimes. Don’t listen to the fear-mongering about the other services they provide. There are many places that can provide those that don’t commit the atrocities that PP does.
Barely twenty-four hours after her inauguration as America’s first woman chief executive, President Sarah Palin announced today that Attorney General Mark Levin has been instructed to stop defending Roe v. Wade and abortion in a wave of fresh lawsuits filed in federal courts around the country.
~Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator, February 24
From Jill Stanek’s quote of the day. Those cheering Obama’s refusal to do his job and support the Defense of Marriage Act have no idea what precedent it sets.
By far unions are the largest donors that Democrats have all up and down the line from local and state to federal. Unions spent over 50 million dollars on Barack Obama’s campaign back in 2008 and they spent another 50 million for the 2010 midterm elections.
Most specifically public employee unions are Democrats biggest supporters.In the last week of the 2010 election, for instance, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) spent over a million dollars to help elect Democrats. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent almost $400,000.
So when these Democrats run away and try to hide in a neighboring state it is because their biggest donors are demanding that they “do something.” And since Democrats in these states have lost all power due to the will of the voters, they feel that their last ability to stop legislation that hurts donor’s interests is to shut down government.
There is no parallel for this in the actions of Republicans who have spent decades as powerless onlookers in state government. No blocks of Republicans have run away like cowards to nearby states to avoid doing their jobs. Republicans have been essentially powerless in the face of unions since World War II yet in that almost 80-year span where Democrats have been in the pocket of Big Labor no blocks of Republicans have wallowed in such childish petulance. Republicans continued to go to work in their state capitols despite being virtually powerless to affect unions.
The insidiousness of media bias — Democrats, Media Keep ‘Birther’ Story Alive
The nagging issue of “Birthers” raises a chicken/egg question: It is an issue that lingers of its own accord, or does it linger because the media won’t let it go away?
Republicans appearing on cable to talk about important issues of the day — unemployment, the national debt, Egypt, Wisconsin, etc. — can bet the “Birther” question will come up. And there appears to be nothing a Republican can do to satisfy an interviewer on this question. It is not enough to state a belief in the president’s Christianity, or that one takes the president at his word. In question after question, interviewers call on Republicans to condemn, repeatedly, rumors they neither believe nor spread; then they condemn the condemnation for not being condemnatory enough.
And so the issue keeps coming up. It’s self-perpetuating. Twice in the past week, George Stephanopoulos has asked Republican guests on Good Morning America about it. David Gregory routinely does the same on Meet the Press.
I saw this comment that was trying to refute John’s excellent response to a HuffPo fluff piece by a false teacher promoting pro-gay theology:
Christians loudly opposing homosexuality are being really interrested in the personal sins of others, are they not? Or is it only a few particular sins, that they happen to be blameless for themselves? So, the question arises, are they doing what their religion demands of them? Wether christians should be good and forgiving people or should they be on the lookout for their “neighbours sins”? Is it really what Jesus demanded of them? If that is a part of being a christian, I am especially happy I am not one. It must be a burden to try and watch for ones fellow man, for him not to “sin” in his bedroom…
My response to the commenter:
Go check your history. Was pro-gay theology the dominate view of the church for 2,000 and then these awful conservatives came along to try and change it? Did both Christian and non-Christian cultures always celebrate (oxymoronic) “same-sex marriage” and then conservative Christians decided to change that?
Of course not. The apostate pro-gay theologians brought it up and part of their playbook is acting like we’re the ones obsessed with it.
And when one of the logical consequences of making sexual preferences into civil rights is that young children will be forced to learn that these perversions are “normal,” that is definitely worth fighting.
Lara Logan, Islam and Women’s Rights – Why the media silence on the Islamic gang-rapes? Too scared to mention it? Doesn’t fit in the the PC-memes? Why aren’t the feminists going insane over this? More from the Wintery Knight about the Koran’s teachings on this.
All Teachers Unions Must Fall, Not Just Wisconsin’s – just read it all. Great overview of how awful they are and why they should be illegal.
