State Senator Wendy Davis is running for governor of Texas. She became a rising star among Democrats last summer after she staged a filibuster to kill an “anti-abortion” bill. Her 11 ½ hour talk-a-thon garnered national attention and catapulted her to fame, but few know the tragic story that preceded her swift rise to the top of the pro-choice pedestal.
I would like to introduce Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who operated the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The clinic serviced abortion patients on the first floor, and family practice patients on the second floor. Dr. Gosnell operated the clinic for almost four decades until February 2010 when police raided his clinic to investigate claims of prescription drug fraud. During the raid, police found much more than forged prescription pads. His clinic was dubbed a “house of horrors” after police discovered a macabre scene of filth, putrid odors, and dismembered babies.
Just when I think I've just about heard it all, a lefty always goes and does something insane that proves me wrong once again. Ever watch MSNBC's Martin Bashir?
I know, me either.
Martin Bashir is a small man, a British journalist of Pakistani descent who now serves as host of his own show on MSNBC and as a correspondent for NBC's Dateline NBC.
Little Martin Bashir got his panties in a wad last Friday after former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, in a speech she gave at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition event, said
"Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that note comes due-- and this isn't racist, so-- you know, try it-- try it anyway. This isn't racist. But it's going to be like slavery when that note is due, right? We're going to be beholden to a foreign master, because there is no plan--there is no plan coming out of Washington, D.C. to stop the incurrence of debt, is there? All we're hearing about is why we need to grow more debt. I learned, man, if you're in a hole and you don't want to be in that hole, quit digging."
There have been a lot of complaints about department stores being opened on Thanksgiving Day by a number of Thanksgiving-loving people. I love Thanksgiving as much as the next person. In fact Thanksgiving is my 2nd favorite holiday, my first being Christmas. But there is a special feeling that comes over one during Thanksgiving. It is a time when families and friends get together to feast and share warm memories. Or, if you are in my family, feast and drink. (My family rocks!) None the less, Thanksgiving is about togetherness and being grateful that we were given the opportunity to be with one another. So I can see why some people are offended by the Best Buys and the Walmarts of the country for being opened on a day that is meant for family. But before we send a mob to the nearest evil corporation that is opened on Thanksgiving, who - we have convinced ourselves - are literally chaining their workers to their cash registers so they can’t be with their families on such a precious holiday, let’s take a step back and look at the basic economics that surround the situation.
