Listening to all the media hype this morning tell us that Polls show that 90% of all Americans want this background check Legislation.

it strikes me that with our Media, if we were to take a Poll as to who is the most offensive Black Doctor in America this week, Polls would answer Ben Carson, the disinvited Commencement Speaking Homophobe from Johns Hopkins, and not mass murdering abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

I think it would be interesting to compare the comments made about the 2 Doctors by members of the Media just this week.

For instance, here's Bill Maher:

""It turns out that Ben Carson is as stupid as every other conservative hero...I kind of like that Dr. Ben is both an amazingly talented neurosurgeon and a drooling moron," Maher wrote. "Because people need to be reminded that doctors (and other 'professionals' like lawyers) can be just as stupid as everybody else."

And here's his comments on Gosnell. " "

Etc.

Don't forget the story I linked to on another thread about the soldier stationed at Ft. Hood and lives in Temple, TX who had his lawfully owned and borne rigle confiscated by the local police because someone saw him with and was "alarmed". For that reason only, the police used that as justification to take his weapon.

Texas. Not New York. Not California. Not Connecticut. Texas.

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell paid his 15 year old intern minimum wage when he hired her to help with abortions; Ergo, it follows that he is more compassionate and more caring than Senator Liz Warren

Obama calls his Prop Master:

"The President has asked Francine Wheeler, whose son Ben was killed in the Newtown shooting, to give this week’s White House Weekly Address"

From a Bret Baier tweet.

Why did God leave out humility when it gave us this nasty little man?

Those medical privacy questions will of course disappear once Obamacare is implemented. Privacy? That is where the Constitutional Sacrament of Abortion comes from, Silly; it has nothing to do with actual health care or, god forbid, whether the State should permit you to bear arms.

There have been more eye popping stories of Leftist madness in the past few weeks than at any time in the history of the Republic.

The madness of the immigration plan; the utter depravity of the president and his allies on the gun control bill; the EPA's rampage against conventional energy; the growing number of green energy frauds. The Gosnell non-event. It just goes on and on.

And nowhere in the muddle is there any outrage.

The McConnell wiretap brings plaudits from the MSM for Corn's audacity in stenography.

It is a very sick society we live in and we must resist against this evil any way we can.

Speaking of which, whatever happened to the Bishops objections to the birth control mandate?

I've really had enough of these Newtown people. They've made themselves public figures, they made themselves part of Team Dem, they should be treated as such. Let's talk about how the swells in Town, including some of these families and some of the dead school staff no doubt, treated Adam as a freak to be ridiculed and then ignored. Unfortunately for them, the little freak was a homicidal maniac and they were irrevocably hurt. These newton families demand that the rest of the world has to lose freedoms because their smug little town marginalized a kid who turned out to be a maniac. These people have too much self-regard. They should shut up and suffer in silence-- that's what they told the Lanzas to do.

daddy,
It seems if my comment doesn't go through on the first try, if I then add a period as a way to alter it it does go through the second time.
Haven't tried it enough to know if it works all the time or not.

daddy

I give up on the Masters.

Yesterday and today, no matter when I click on over to the "Live At The Masters" Golf Channel, all it is is panelists sitting around jabbering. I haven't seen a single golf shot in 24 hours of intermittent channel surfing.

Jack is Back (Again)!

This didn't take long. Colbert-Busch plays the race card in the SC-1 contest with Mark Sanford.

I wonder if she knows that SC has an AA Senator?

Jack is Back (Again)!

daddy,

Only ESPN and CBS can show action. Its on now at ESPN with that idiot Torico and nasty creep Curtis Strange. All GC can do is talk and show yesterday's highlights. They are not aligned with CBS but rather a sub of NBC Sports.

Tomorrow its all CBS.

Janet

a comment at pagar's link - "So much for the argument that legalized abortion is so much safer that the back alley variety..."

A few days ago I saw someone call them "front alley abortions".

Jack is Back (Again)!

Janet,

The only difference between Gosnell and Planned Parenthood is Federal money. Both are evil but one is paid better. I hope Gosnell's defense brings that up - planned parenthood, the feds, etc. do it all the time, etc.

NK

ESPN has about 4 hours live starting 1500ET and then replay afterwards, through 2400ET.

I've liked Mike Torico ever since he called BS on Jesse Jackson almost 20 years ago.

Jack is Back (Again)!

Boy. Watching the Masters and Dustin Johnson coming apart one shot at a time on the back nine. Gone from 7 under to now either even or plus 1.

daddy

Thanks JiB, for the steer to ESPN. What a relief to actual see some Golf.

If I had wanted to watch jackasses jabbering around a table all day long I could have just switched on over to MSNBC.

Jack is Back (Again)!

NK,

Why would they put a guy as anchor for a golf tournament that never played a round in his life? He may a good guy for his JJ comments but he was badly used by putting his foot in his mouth so much during golf telecasts. Having Strange Strange wtih his didn't help and that's why they brought in Zinger.

NK

Dustin Johnson collapse? well... at least he can go to young Ms. Gretzky for succor and comfort... yowza... The Great One plus a Model wife yielded some kind of offspring.

NK

Torico's more of a host, so I think he does OK. The real loser is Strange-- just something really offputting about him. Zinger is nutz, so I like him. The CBS Crew doing the commentating is fab-- Feherty, MacCourt, Faldo-- they're all nutz-- I just wait for them to say something that gets them banned like MaCourt was a few years ago.

If by chance you were wondering about the differences between our First Lady and Miss Mexico, this link will clear that up for you, but allow me to post a bit of it.

Differences

One of the largest differences between these two women is the legacy they’ll build as first ladies of their countries. Before her husband took office, Obama was already known for her intelligence; she worked under Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and at the University of Chicago Hospitals. Even so, she had to work to make her role as first lady a meaningful and involved position. She’s carved out her niche promoting healthy foods and eating for families and their children, and even authored a book about the White House garden and gardens across America.

Rivera, on the other hand, might have a harder time moving beyond her celebrity to be taken seriously as a first lady who’s more than just a figurehead. Unlike Obama and her predecessor in Mexico, Margarita Zavala, sitting President Felipe Calderon’s wife, Rivera doesn’t have a prestigious intellectual career on which to build her own policy initiatives.

FWIW the statements "Obama was already known for her intelligence" and "Prestigious Intellectual Career" are both bolded in the original story in order to make sure you don't miss it.

matt

does anyone have any links to Kermit Gosnells statistics?

rates for abortions, number performed per year, price for getting an oxycontin scrip? yearly income?

One of the things the scum on the Left don't want people to know is how profitable it is.

NK

I'll take Angelica please. BTW-- didn't Mooshelle recently say she's a single mom? Is she still FLOTUS?

Rob Crawford

FWIW the statements "Obama was already known for her intelligence" and "Prestigious Intellectual Career" are both boldfaced lies.

Her job in Chicago was to throw welfare recipients out of hospitals in exchange for an inflated salary.

Mooschelle DID something at UC Medical?- I thought that was a phoney baloney no show 'job' to keep community activist/state senator Obummer from complaining about 'white medicene' in the 'community'.

Captain Hate

I wonder if she knows that SC has an AA Senator?

If she's as dumb as her brother, probably not.

Thomas Collins

Is anyone aware of the background of the matter discussed in the LUN? From the article, it sounds as if the Federales are putting Amish away under a federal hate crime statute for what appears to be common assault and battery (and perhaps false imprisonment).

Captain Hate

Tirico's probably being ill used at golf (I'll take a back seat to nobody on criticizing the dunces at ESPN/ABC) but he has a pleasant announcing voice and does excellent basketball play by play. Nantzy boy may be conservative but I can't stand listening to his content-free fluff.

Jack is Back (Again)!

The biggest problem for Democrats on gun control is Democrats.

Brian Walsh explains

Just a sample:

"As newly-elected Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp tells the New York Times today in explaining why she disagrees with the gun control lobby despite entreaties from several Newtown families:

"In our part of the country, this isn't an issue...This is a way of life. This is how people feel, and it is extraordinarily difficult to explain that, especially to grieving parents." Bottom line, she said, "I'm going to represent my state."

Captain Hate

That case has gotten a lot of coverage around here, TC, and it's a strange one. The guy sounds like a real jerk (which isn't a crime or we'd be one giant penal colony) and I've never figured out what his point is because the Amish aren't exactly Schooooomer-esque in their demeanor. I think they'd have rather handled it internally but it just got out of hand. Imo the hate crime statute would be ill applied here although I'm not a fan of it ever being used.

NK

Looks like this could be the first Tiger major win in a while this weekend.

CH,

I'll admit he has come a long way in golf from his first days. To me the best sports announcer in America is the unsung Vern Lundquist. Of course, we're partial down here since he does the SEC games with Gary "Remember Me" Danielson.

Thomas Collins

Thanks, CH.

I wonder whether the Federales would pursue a hate crime prosecution against an Islamic male for forcing female members of his mosque to wear burqas. I know, rhetorical question.

Captain Hate

We agree on Verne even if he's lost a bit off his fastball. The SEC's contract with CBS is one of the most effective sports marketing I've seen in a long time.

Rick Ballard

"Sooooo, you admit that there is smoke and mirrors in your budget."

Hit,

Hopefully, TM will examine the President's attempt to stuff an extra $75 billion into educrat coffers via the Early Indoctrination Program. The manifest and complete failure of Head Start has been thoroughly studied and documented and blowing the smoke away from the proposed scam shouldn't be particularly difficult.

The Economy-- just dreadful data these days-- recession by end of 2013?

Obama just wants to continue fund green energy-massive failure
Head Start: So bad in Ohio ,they had to lie about the number of students enrolled.
road and bridge repair: money for this given to unions and public school teacher pensions as well as planned parenthood.
Now if only we can link stimulus funds to the abortion maniac Gosnell.

centralcal

Hhhmmm - just saw a brief blog and link at Ace's about Sharyl Attkisson possibly leaving CBS News.

Could it be because she actually acts like a real journalist?

Mass murderer Dr. Kermit Scissorhands should be known and reviled by the world's masses. Do his former assistants even sleep at night?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

They probably sleep like babies.

Or they did until it looked like murdering young people might actually still be a crime.

Skoot

TC I'm sitting in a hotel rm in Lancaster now. Amish should take t their appeal all the way to SuCt. Hate crimes prosecutions have to go.

matt

Was this the beard shearing case? How does one define a hate crime if it is within the context of a non life threatening crime? Was shunning not an option? Forcing them to wear Duck Dynasty style beards or eat canned beans?

Sounds more like the citizens of Paris after the liberation and their treatment of female collaborators.

Is it too late for her mom to take her for a post birth abortion at pop Gosnell's?

Captain Hate

matt, it was a bit stranger than that. First of all, yes to everything you said on the hate crime nonsense; that it was even contemplated shows a disturbing mindset permeating the entire DOJ. Second, shunning was probably attempted but the perps kept insinuating themselves back into the community; kind of like a breakaway sect who refuses to break away. Finally, every photo I saw of the accused made him look like he wasn't right in the head or was doing it for a lark. Keep in mind that the Amish are continually beset with how to deal with the modern world of Yankees and family trees that are shaped like telephone poles.

Captain,

Do you know if the Amish in general are able to sustain themselves and their community numbers-wise, or are they on the road to extinction pretty much like the Shakers, who are now down to only 3 aged members total left in the US?

Jack is Back (Again)!

Those people who delight in snipping the necks of born alive abortion experiments deserve the same place in hell as Mengele. What is the difference?

Jack is Back (Again)!

CH and matt,

One thing missing in the Amish case. They are devout Christians. Just another notch in this administrations "war on religions other than Islam". Look around!

daddy

What is the difference?

With Mengele, once the US Press found out about it, they publicized it as horrible. With Gosnell, the US Press know it's horrible, so they refuse to publicize it.

Other than that I don't see a difference.

daddy,

There was the Silence of the Lambs and now we have the Silence of the Lions. The press/media in this country is suppose to be the Lions, roaring at every indiscretion and fake or fraud, every crime and sin against mankind, every duped occasion and what do we get - apologists, enablers, appreciative audience and acolytes. DOOM!

Captain Hate

daddy, they're still a considerable presence in towns like Middlefield and Berlin so they're not in any immediate danger. They seem to be pretty smart so I imagine they're not unaware of the perils they face and probably have thought out ways to deal with it while still remaining true to their culture. I've had nothing but positive experiences interacting with them so the last thing I want to do is be inadvertently condescending or patronizing toward them.

Rob Crawford

"Afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. Unless the afflicted are newborn infants, in which case leave them to die."

Rick Ballard

I don't know how in the hell anyone can get from pathetically pusillanimous propagandist to lion status. I'm rather hoping Gosnell presents a spirited defense. He can always turn to the President's support of his procedures.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

The Amish have been around since around 1639, and began coming to this country in the early 1700s. According to wiki:

As of 2000, over 165,000 Old Order Amish live in the United States and approximately 1500 live in Canada.[5] A 2008 study suggested their numbers have increased to 227,000,[6] and in 2010 a study suggested their population had grown by 10% in the past two years to 249,000, with increasing movement to the West.[1]

Over the centuries, many former Amish (including many of my ancestors on both sides of the family) have broken off and been absorbed into less strict protestant denominations such as Mennonites, Brethren, Lutheran, etc.

Jack is Back (Again)!

CH,

Okay, I'll concede that and revise my comments to the War on Flyover Country. No Amish on the coasts that I know off:) It has to be something other than attacks on each other just because of follicle envy.

Captain Hate

Thanks for that data and insight, Jim. Do you know if any outsiders are allowed in? Or if descendents of people that have broken away can come back?

Amish in our area aree growing but are in the news because their iron wheels are hard on the roads and the horse manure in the road seems to bother some people.

An Amish farm was lost a few weeks ago and we carried a wonderful photograph of the school age boys all dressed alike with their winter knit caps on watching the fire. Very touching.

Janet

matt -
There's this from Jan. 2011 @ Philly.com-

"The bigger the baby, the more he charged; his fees ranged from $325 to $3,000 per abortion, Williams said. Anesthesia was additional, although he and his staffers would "sedate to stupor" patients who screamed or moaned too loudly, according to the report. Investigators estimated that Gosnell's salary for one year was $1.8 million."

and

"That's because Gosnell routinely destroyed his files, according to the grand-jury report."

So I'm not sure they know much.

Jack is Back (Again)!

sbw,

We saw an Amish family in their horse drawn cart when we up your way a few years back. Just trundling along. No bother to anyone except those to impatient to put up with a little bit of Americana in their day.
