Barack Obama, our next President

practically zero media coverage on this...why?

The Unmourned

'murder at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion “clinic”:

From the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia:

Viable babies were born*. Gosnell killed them by plunging scissors into their spinal cords. He taught his staff to do the same.

This is a remarkable moment in American life: A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC and everyone else would be linking it to Sarah Palin’s uncivil call for dramatic cuts in government spending. But “Doctor” Kermit Gosnell’s mound of corpses is apparently entirely unconnected to the broader culture.

And so it goes two years on, at “Doctor” Gosnell’s trial:

Medical assistant Adrienne Moton admitted Tuesday that she had cut the necks of at least 10 babies after they were delivered, as Gosnell had instructed her. Gosnell and another employee regularly “snipped” the spines “to ensure fetal demise,” she said.

Moton sobbed as she recalled taking a cellphone photograph of one baby because he was bigger than any she had seen aborted before. She measured the fetus at nearly 30 weeks, and thought he could have survived, given his size and pinkish color. Gosnell later joked that the baby was so big he could have walked to the bus stop, she said.

Funny!

Notwithstanding Dr. Gosnell’s jest, and the fact that newborns delivered alive are generally regarded as “babies,” the New York Times’ only story on the case is punctilious enough to refer to Gosnell’s victims as “viable fetuses,” and its early paragraphs emphasize the defense’s wearily predictable line that this is a “racist prosecution.”

Instead of my Arizona comparison, what about Sandy Hook? ONE SOLITARY ACT OF MASS INFANTICIDE BY A mentally-ill loner calls into question the constitutional right to guns, but a sustained conveyor belt of infanticide by an entire cadre of cold-blooded killers apparently has no implications for the constitutional right to abortion. As one commentator wondered two years ago:

Does 30 years of calling babies “blobs of tissue” have no effect on the culture?

But stupid, stupid is something you can only achieve by fully subscribing to the theory of competitive capitalism mixed with great lashings of religious piety. You'll never understand...

Sadly, you belong on the same side of history as those who followed past tyrants who disposed of their versions of riff-raff and who were "drains" on a self-imposing government.
You are a disappointment to the American freedoms so many died for.
Yesss... I drive by the little white headstones perched row on row like thousands of albino sparrows and I often reflect on how disappointed they must be with me too. In fact, I think I'll drive over there right now and just express how sorry I am I let them down again.

Just watched a movie the other night about those "re-educating camps" under Mao Tse-Tung's China in the early 1970s.

Children of parents who were independent thinkers and writers were also put in these camps. The two young men in the movie were also children of their parents' "reactionary" writings. They hoarded and hid books that would have gotten them killed had they been discovered.

The best thing about Netflix are the foreign movies - educational and entertaining at the same time.

Ideals are all well and good when you're 12, but most people don't really believe in them, much less act out of them past that point. If you do it means you're stupid. It's pretty clear the only ideal conservatives have is the precious right to do whatever they want to make money regardless of the effects on others. That's pretty much it, isn't it? What other "ideals" did all those poor dead chumps take a dirt nap for? Freedom? Liberty? Justice for All? Don't make us laugh, they died so a few greedy people could make money, or alternately nowadays, because Israel told them to.

Hey, ya' trollish buffoon, "The Whites of West Virginia" is a documentary about a family named White who had 22 children, all but one winding up on welfare--flack's seen it. As to you ninth ranking, it's not based on the educational performance of the students, "...New analyses from the EPE Research Center for the Chance-for-Success Index and school finance categories, respectively, capture critical aspects of the broader educational environment and the level and equitability of school funding. In the other updated category, the center examines policies related to transitions and alignment across stages of education. Results for the three other areas in the State-of-the-States rubric..."
