Quote Of The Week

"[Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are] human weeds ... a
deadweight of human waste ... [Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a] menace to
the race."

"Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent
Multiplication of this bad stock."

-- Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review

Herman Cain is being attacked for suggesting Planned Parenthood is operating a "planned genocide" to kill unborn black children. Read the article here.

His assertion was a little inaccurate because he said that there was a higher placement of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in predominantly black areas. As it turns out this is technically not correct although the rate of abortions for blacks is 5 times higher than for whites, Hispanics are double the rate of whites.

Considering that a clinic may be blocks to just a few miles from a predominantly black neighborhood and a higher proportion of blacks are visiting the clinics, this turns into not much more than a discussion over semantics.

Add to this the numerous times Planned Parenthood has gotten caught in stings agreeing to take donations to be used only for aborting black children.

Or, we could simply go back to the beginning and let the founder, Margaret Sanger, speak for herself.

Views From An Alter-nate Universe

I have always thought that Jonathan Alter was an idiot. He has outdone himself now though.

Obama Miracle is White House Free of Scandal: Jonathan Alter

I have nothing to add, the article speaks for itself.

(As a bonus, look at the comments)

What Would You Do?

New prenatal test accurately detects Down syndrome, but should parents use it?

Read the article here. (Warning: cute kid alert, proceed at your own risk).

A business has developed a test that can detect Downs' Syndrome as early as 10 weeks into a pregnancy with a 98.6% accuracy.

The test has a false negative rate, saying a child has Downs' when they do not, of 0.2%. This seems small, and it is, but it means that it is wrong once every 500 times tested.

The rate of Downs' is 1 in every 691 live births.

Would you have the test? Would you want your wife to have it? I have a definite thought on this, just curious what you think.

Further Down The Rabbit Hole We Go

Muslims say crosses at Catholic University Violate “Human Rights”

Read the article although this sentence here sums it up fairly well.

Banzhaf said that it is technically not illegal for Catholic University to refuse to provide rooms devoid of religious icons. (note: Mr Banzhaf is the lawyer for the Muzzies)

What do you think the odds are that a court in an Islamic country would take this case?

More importantly, do you think a Christian would live long enough to go to trial if it were accepted?

This is just another absurd case of Islam, the most intolerant religion in the world, demanding tolerance from us.

A Protest Looking For An Outrage (Or Rebels Without A Cause)

I have felt from the beginning that the whole Occupy (insert location here) movement was nonsense.

It has seemed to be nothing more than a bunch of bored upper middle class liberal kids out wasting their time. It would seem like an unproductive use of their time until one considers that it is likely most of them are not interested in working and instead live off of their parents.

After seeing a seeming endless series of interviews with these idiots a couple of things are clear:

-They have no idea how the real world works. The demands we get from them are a steady string of "we want ( ) free" with no real plan as to who will pay for it.

-There is no cohesive message. The Tea Party has intentionally not organized as a national group so they can stay grass roots. They still, however, manage to stay on point. There is an underlying message.

This article is a must read however. If there has been an indication that this movement is not what it seems, this is it.

‘Occupy Norfolk’ Struggles to Find ‘Definitive End List’ for Movement

This paragraph summed it up.

“We’ve been here around the clock, working toward finding a common end goal,” he told CBS Washington, adding that an official mission statement is in the works, and should be finalized soon. “I think it’s sort of misguided to say we lack direction. We don’t have a definitive end list of things that we’re trying to accomplish, but we definitely have a great head on our shoulders about what we’re doing.”

They have been working on it around the clock for a month, no plan yet.

We are asking the wrong questions about this movement. It is irrelevant why they are protesting, they don't know. The real question is who is funding it.

Rumors have swirled around the usual suspects, the Obama re-election campaign, George Soros, along with a host of far-left political action groups.

So this is the question I close with.

Do you think this is a grass roots movement or are these people stooges for the professional left. Is the real goal here getting Obama re-elected next year and reclaiming the House?

Or, alternatively, is this a distraction designed to take away attention from Team Obama and just how much they have destroyed our economy?

Keep in mind, this was not like the Tea Party in which a reporter on CNBC made an off the cuff statement and protests sprung up. This spontaneous movement took months to plan. I myself have been seeing articles about it for at least a couple of months before they began.

Who planned them?

Quote Of The Week

"I guarantee it's going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be and even though I believe all the choices we've made have been the right ones, we're still going through difficult circumstances."

Barack Obama.

Sometimes I have to look, dig, and scramble to find a quote of the week quote. Sometimes, like this one, a quote raises it's hand and says "Ooh, ooh, pick me".

Put another way, if I were getting paid for my blog I would think I shouldn't get paid for this one.

"all the choices we've made have been the right ones". Hmm. Think it's true?

As a bonus, look at this line. the economy is not where it wants to be "It", not "me" or "we" or "I" but it.

Some will say that this is nit-picking or a simple slip of the tongue (if recent history is an indication, I will be visited by someone accusing me of taking it out of context).

I do not think this is a slip of the tongue so much as a continuation of Obama's distancing himself from the economy. The economy is in no way, shape, or form Obama's fault. Ever. Period. End of discussion.

For an interesting read, go here. This blogger has a looong list of decisions by Obama that may have not been quite the right ones.

Child Support

I think I have written on this before but there is an update.

Under this bill, when the Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene if this bill is passed. It’s just appalling.

Nancy Pelosi on the Protect Life Act before the US House of Representatives

Okay, that was easy. We all know by now that Pelosi is an idiot.

What is really disturbing is this:

The religious right is making a desperate all-out effort to roll back women’s reproductive rights, and a bizarre fetus-worshipping circus took place today in Congress as the fundamentalist loons put on an emotional ultrasound show for the right wingers about to vote on the falsely named “Protect Life Act:”

This is from Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs.

The absolute hatred the left shows for unborn children is scary at best, sociopathic at worst.

I've said it before and you can trust I will say it again - liberalism is a mental disorder.

Need I Say More?

We have Obama and all of the other Muslim apologists rattling on and on about them being peaceful, productive members of our society.

They have a right to be here.

There are moderate Muslims who are different than the extremists that have hijacked their religion.

To suggest otherwise is downright racist and intolerant.

What Do You Think About This?

Read this article (actually the first part tells you most of what you need to know).

Can a blood test really tell you when you'll die?

The science on this is a little suspect, if not completely off base.

It does bring up an interesting question though - would you want to know how long you were going to live?

Basically some are claiming they can do a DNA test a give a statistical answer as to how long you will live, if you live to die of natural causes. Obviously it cannot predict untimely deaths such as trauma, etc.

I see a lot wrong with the science and think there are way too many variables in determining health.

With all of that said, would you want to know when your expiration date is?

Quote Of The Week

“Wall Street didn’t write those failed policies, Wall Street didn’t spend a trillion dollars,”...“Wall Street isn’t asking to spend another $450 billion. It didn’t work with a trillion. It’s not gonna’ work with $450 billion. You can demonstrate all you want on Wall Street. The problem is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!”

Herman Cain suggesting the demonstrators move from Wall Street to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.


Makes sense to me.

Those Crazy Judges

We have seen some idiotic things from the bench over the years. This has to be one of the more idiotic ones.

Judge Grants Illegal Immigrant Work Privileges in Jail Sentence for Drunken-Driving Incident

Read the article.

Yes, you read the title of the article right. A judge granted a man, who is not legally allowed to work in the US, work release from jail.

This would be laughable if it wasn't the most incredible part of it.

The judge sentenced him to 11 months in jail, on work release, for being at 3 times the legal limit for blood alcohol level while driving the wrong way on the expressway, while being in the country illegally.

I have a question about all of this. Does it seem like the illegal immigration faction is winning in this country? It seems as if illegal immigration has become less of a taboo than it was in the past.

These people used to have to hide in the underground of the US society. Sneak around surviving as good as they can, viewed by society as being the criminals that they are.

Now they have gone mainstream.

The media has transitioned from calling them illegals to now calling them undocumented workers.

We have sanctuary cities hiding them from immigration authorities.

We have a federal government who is lax, at best, on enforcement.

There are organizations that help them cross the border, get food and water, get legal help.

They have their own phone apps for God's sake.

Finally, think the solution is voting Obama out? Depends on who votes him out.

Romney is saying the right things but has a bit of a credibility problem. Will he follow through?

Perry is almost weaker on immigration than Obama having set up a Texas version of the Dream Act for state colleges.

WHat are your thoughts? Are we nearing a point of no return on illegal immigration?

Romney/Cain?

Sarah Palin has dropped out of a Republican race that she never really joined.

Chris Christie has said no thanks, again.

Rick Perry has talked himself out of contention.

Michelle Bachmann was never really in it.

Ron Paul is still crazy.

What is left are Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, and a few others not worth the time to type.

In my mind, the race is now Romney's to lose. Cain is coming on strong but I just don't see him overtaking Romney in votes, money, or party support.

Realize this is not an endorsement, just observation. I am not a huge fan of Romney by any stretch of the imagination but will certainly pick him if the other option is Barack Hussein Obama.

Give Romney credit on one thing, his "last man standing" strategy is working. He has not played to win, just to not lose. While I am underwhelmed with this as a strategy and think that the country should demand more from a President, he will likely get the nomination and very possibly the Presidency with the strategy. So, I ask, who is the dummy?

His unwillingness to commit to well, anything, in the campaign so far cuts down on the baggage he has to shed during the general campaign. Keep in mind that this is a man who already has a lot of baggage.

Again, I view it as a pathetic strategy but it may very well help him beat Hussein and quite frankly that is my one and only goal for this election.

So back to my original question. Assuming the nomination goes to Romney, what about Cain as a running mate?

Until now the assumption was that Marco Rubio was the VP of choice but he said yesterday that he would likely say no if asked. I realize these types of statements are to be taken with a grain of salt but what if he really means it?

I have outlined my case for Rubio in a previous post:

-would help with the Hispanic vote

-Tea Party darling

-Would bring home Florida, this is big

Which of these does he have that Cain does not?

-not a help with the Hispanic vote but may bring in just as much of the black vote. Obama is vulnerable with the black vote due to unemployment and the fact that not all of them are lock-step liberals. Many black voters are fairly moderate to slightly conservative. The lure of voting for the first black President was too much for them. We have already crossed that bridge and many of them are disappointed now that they are on the other side. Cain may be a good alternative. He will not win the black vote but this is going to be a close election. Losing 10 percent of the black vote could do some damage to Obama's reelection hopes.

-he will help bring home the Tea Party. Sarah Palin and/or Ron Paul may decide on a 3rd party run. The GOP needs a conservative on the ticket and Romney ain't it.

-will help deliver Florida. The GOP loses a bit here with Cain instead of Rubio but Cain won the straw poll so we cannot dismiss his ability in Florida. Further, I think Florida may be similar to the black vote as I described above. Obama will not win Florida in a landslide, if he does at all. A shift of not a lot of votes could be the difference between winning it and losing it.

-look beyond Florida. Rubio helps in Florida but not as much as Cain in some of the other purple states. Think about the black vote in some of the biggest swing states this year - Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Again, a few votes could go a long way. Remember that a vote that swings from one party to another counts twice - it's a -1 for Obama and a +1 for the GOP.

I think Romney/Cain could be a winning ticket. What are your thoughts?

Quote Of The Week

I have seen women walk right past a TV set with a football game on and - this always amazes me - not stop to watch, even if the TV is showing replays of what we call a "good hit," which is a tackle that causes at least one major internal organ to actually fly out of a player's body.

Fall is here and football is back. My Michigan Wolverines are 5-0 and I suspect the Detroit Lions will be 4-0 after today (first time since George Halas was a boy I believe).

Student Says She Was Forced To Drop Class After Seizure

Read the article

This young lady was booted from a college class because she had a seizure. It was determined the seizure was disrupting and she could have more.

The class she was in?

An emergency medical technician class.
