I Thought It’s Planned Parenthood’s Job to Supply the Free Contraception

| Comments (1)

First, I cannot believe that in 2012 America the hottest topic of conversation among politicians, media types, and, apparently, very active law students, is contraception.  Didn’t our nation already travel this road during those halcyon bra-burning “women’s lib” days of the 60s or whenever that was?

Second, this so-called outrage comes on the heels of the most recent national brouhaha regarding the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s financial support of Planned Parenthood.  Excuse me, but did we not glean from that illuminating passion play that Planned Parenthood rakes in gobs of dough, not only from the United States government, but also from the likes of organizations dedicated, not to planning parenthood, but to the prevention of breast cancer?  Rich and powerful Planned Parenthood earmarks those funds for, yes, the provision of contraception and related services to all manner of women, including, of course, destitute law students, who, it seems, are spending an inordinant amount of time on extracurricular activities.

So why the retro, embarrassingly manufactured controversy?  I’ll tell you why.  How else can the right (as well as those pesky religious-freedom fanatics — Catholics and Baptists among them) be painted as modern-day, woman-hating slave traders?  Shame on the republicans for taking the bait so artificially dangled by the left.  And shame on anyone who believes the sob stories.  Next time you hear one, just send the crybaby over to Planned Parenthood for a ration of free supplies and call it a day.

Quote Roundup As November 2 Draws Near

| Comments (0)

As we approach a day I personally hope will live in infamy – Election Day, November 2nd  — I have with great pleasure watched the left spin around like packs of Tasmanian Devils, elevating their namecalling to a tornado, if not an art form, and revealing to all the world just how panicked, hysterical and utterly desperate they have become.

Just a sampling:

Barack Obama (as his approval ratings plummet to the 30s):  “We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in the back.”

Arrogant, ratings-starved anchorwoman Katie Couric, in her quest to determine the potential outcome of the mid-term election, toured what she referred to as “this great unwashed middle of the country.”

It’s no secret that Joy Behar, co-host of insipid talk show The View, is dedicated to salvaging the career and agenda of endangered Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).  In her daily rant against Reid’s republican opponent Sharron Angle, Behar screeched that a recent Angle ad would never survive a New York airing.  “Come here, bitch,” she shrieked. “Come to New York and do it….I’m not praying for her. She’s going to Hell, the bitch.”  Sharron subsequently sent Ms. Behar a thank-you note for the influx of campaign contributions her rant inspired.

Barack Obama again:  After commenting that “pressure has to be put on the Republican Party” for immigration reform, he continued in his customary rambling, incoherent manner that “if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying we’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.”  Huh?  Must have been off-prompter.

And quotes from the other side, as well:

As unabashed voter fraud is already revealing itself in broad daylight from coast to coast, we find this statement from Jon Ralston, Sharron Angle’s campaign attorney:  “I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor….Two days ago, the Democratic Secretary of State [of Nevada] announced that voters can be provided ‘free food’ at ‘voter turnout events.’ Harry Reid has been offering free food and, according to other reports, some Democratic allies such as teachers’ unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid. Before we were even able to document the reported infractions to report to the authorities, the Democrat Secretary of State slammed the door shut on preventing this behavior and issued a public statement permitting these ACORN-style tactics.”

All is not rosy and supportive on the democrat side, either.  Rhode Island Democratic gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio was not happy when Barack Obama offered his endorsement to Caprio’s opponent.  “He can take his endorsement and really shove it,” said Caprio.  “We had one of the worst floods in the history of the United States a few months back, and President Obama didn’t even do a fly over of Rhode Island. He ignored us and now he’s coming into Rhode Island and treating us like an ATM machine.”

I won’t even bother including quotes from Obama’s appearance on The Daily Show.  As a proud American, my embarrassment threshold just can’t stand anymore.  I will thus close with this quote from conservative radio host, Rush Limbaugh:

 “Americans will not tolerate the ending of American exceptionalism on purpose or a regime that happily presides over an America in decline. This is what the election on Tuesday is about.”

The High Standards of the NFL

Well, National Football League, you sure dodged the bullet this time. To think that rabid conservative Rush Limbaugh almost got through your vaunted gates to become part (minority) owner of the St. Louis Rams.

You have claimed, NFL, that you had nothing to do with the decision to ban Rush from your ranks. You didn’t have to. Your minions of sports and so-called mainstream reporters, assisted in the field by the many media personalities and political folks who have made playing of the race card a sport all its own, made sure Rush never even made it to the starting gate.

I certainly understand your position here. You can’t allow your illustrious band of owners, let alone the NFL organization at large, to be infiltrated by the likes of a man who reveres the U.S. Constitution; who supports opportunity for all Americans, regardless of color or athletic ability; and who absolutely adores the sport of football. Besides, Rush made all those awful comments about slavery, right? Well, not really. Even the mainstream media and your sports’ reporters have admitted that. But it’s Rush, so they can say whatever they want. You understand. We understand, too.

So now you can rest easy. Your reputation and high moral standards have been preserved – for the moment, at least, if not for all time.

You can now turn your attentions to applying the same tough vetting process to whoever does become the new owner of the Rams. We know that you and yours – the team owners, Jesse Jackson, ESPN, Al Sharpton, the United States Congress, ABC, NBC, the White House, MSNBC, all the usual suspects – we know you’ll be demanding that whomever you ultimately choose will meet the same high standards you have applied to the likes of, to name only a few, Michael Vick, O.J. Simpson, the party-boat Minnesota Vikings, and the many who have been welcomed back into your fold after beating, stabbing, shooting, and hitting-and-running. We know you have your — and their – reputations and high standards to uphold. Good luck with that, and again, congrats.
