Moonbat Media Will Not Lay Off With White Guilt

Did you think that moonbats would lay off with the white guilt malarkey, now that white Americans have elected a conspicuously underqualified candidate primarily on the basis of his black skin? Guess again:

Worried by racial tensions churned up by the U.S. presidential election, teachers at one U.S. high school braced for the worst in their majority white community the morning after Barack Obama was elected the country's first black president.
To counter what she called "unsettling bigotry" in Maryland's Carroll County, Westminster High English teacher Laura Doolan wrote a 30-minute lesson for all students to give them a chance to discuss the election and correct misconceptions…
In the end, there were no racial incidents at Westminster High School after Democrat Obama beat Republican John McCain, but minor physical and verbal fights did occur at several other county schools.

If the "minor physical and verbal fights" could be confirmed, no doubt the report would focus on these other schools, and not Westminster High.

Also alleged: 20 years ago, there were KKK rallies in the area. More recently, a school board member "resigned amid a storm of public controversy after he used a racial slur to describe some black rocks at a school construction site." Then there's this:

Mokhtar Nasir, the chief of staff at Carroll Hospital Center, said he hasn't faced much overt discrimination during his 13 years in the county over his Lebanese-Muslim heritage. Still, he says, many co-workers don't recognize his holidays, and some ask year after year if he had a nice Christmas.

The horror.

No matter what we do, we'll be racist according to the condescending liberal twits who run the media. You see, being racist is embedded in our skin pigmentation.

Don't be silly. Not all white people are racist, just the conservative ones.

And as we all know, minor physical and verbal fights never happen in high school.

The Democrats' Missing History


By JEFFREY LORD


“So what’s missing?


• There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms supporting slavery. There were six from 1840 through 1860.


• There is no reference to the number of Democratic presidents who owned slaves. There were seven from 1800 through 1861


• There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject. There were 20, from 1868 through 1948.


• There is no reference to “Jim Crow” as in “Jim Crow laws,” nor is there reference to the role Democrats played in creating them. These were the post-Civil War laws passed enthusiastically by Democrats in that pesky 52-year part of the DNC’s missing years. These laws segregated public schools, public transportation, restaurants, rest rooms and public places in general (everything from water coolers to beaches). The reason Rosa Parks became famous is that she sat in the “whites only” front section of a bus, the “whites only” designation the direct result of Democrats.


• There is no reference to the formation of the Ku Klux Klan, which, according to Columbia University historian Eric Foner, became “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there reference to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease’s description of the Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”


• There is no reference to the fact Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The 13th banned slavery. The 14th effectively overturned the infamous 1857 Dred Scott decision (made by Democratic pro-slavery Supreme Court justices) by guaranteeing due process and equal protection to former slaves. The 15th gave black Americans the right to vote.


• There is no reference to the fact that Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866. It was passed by the Republican Congress over the veto of President Andrew Johnson, who had been a Democrat before joining Lincoln’s ticket in 1864. The law was designed to provide blacks with the right to own private property, sign contracts, sue and serve as witnesses in a legal proceeding.


• There is no reference to the Democrats’ opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1875. It was passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses Grant. The law prohibited racial discrimination in public places and public accommodations.


• There is no reference to the Democrats’ 1904 platform, which devotes a section to “Sectional and Racial Agitation,” claiming the GOP’s protests against segregation and the denial of voting rights to blacks sought to “revive the dead and hateful race and sectional animosities in any part of our common country,” which in turn “means confusion, distraction of business, and the reopening of wounds now happily healed.”


• There is no reference to four Democratic platforms, 1908-20, that are silent on blacks, segregation, lynching and voting rights as racial problems in the country mount. By contrast the GOP platforms of those years specifically address “Rights of the Negro” (1908), oppose lynching (in 1912, 1920, 1924, 1928) and, as the New Deal kicks in, speak out about the dangers of making blacks “wards of the state.”


• There is no reference to the Democratic Convention of 1924, known to history as the “Klanbake.” The 103-ballot convention was held in Madison Square Garden. Hundreds of delegates were members of the Ku Klux Klan, the Klan so powerful that a plank condemning Klan violence was defeated outright. To celebrate, the Klan staged a rally with 10,000 hooded Klansmen in a field in New Jersey directly across the Hudson from the site of the convention. Attended by hundreds of cheering convention delegates, the rally featured burning crosses and calls for violence against African-Americans and Catholics.


• There is no reference to the fact that it was Democrats who segregated the federal government, at the direction of President Woodrow Wilson upon taking office in 1913. There \is a reference to the fact that President Harry Truman integrated the military after World War II.


• There is reference to the fact that Democrats created the Federal Reserve Board, passed labor and child welfare laws, and created Social Security with Wilson’s New Freedom and FDR’s New Deal. There is no mention that these programs were created as the result of an agreement to ignore segregation and the lynching of blacks. Neither is there a reference to the thousands of local officials, state legislators, state governors, U.S. congressmen and U.S. senators who were elected as supporters of slavery and then segregation between 1800 and 1965. Nor is there reference to the deal with the devil that left segregation and lynching as a way of life in return for election support for three post-Civil War Democratic presidents, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt.


• There is no reference that three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill in the U.S. House came from Democrats, or that 80% of the “nay” vote in the Senate came from Democrats. Certainly there is no reference to the fact that the opposition included future Democratic Senate leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a former Klan member) and Tennessee Senator Albert Gore Sr., father of Vice President Al Gore.


• Last but certainly not least, there is no reference to the fact that Birmingham, Ala., Public Safety Commissioner Bull Connor, who infamously unleashed dogs and fire hoses on civil rights protestors, was in fact-yes indeed-a member of both the Democratic National Committee and the Ku Klux Klan.”

Well yes, many of the democrats were the racists. But they weren't LIBERAL democrats. See, party labels are interchangeable with the ideology they represent having moved around a bit over the last, oh I dunno, 100 YEARS.

LBJ predicted that the Civil Rights Act would alienate southern democrats and he was right. The southern racist wing of the democratic party abandoned the party and is not firmly ensconced with the republicans. Republicans, ever the bottom-feeders, welcomed them with open arms. Nixon even used racism to garner support from the racist south with his famous "southern strategy".

The republicans repeated this tactic over the years, attracting the loyalty of society's rejects- racists, skinheads, white collar criminals, exploitative capitalists, and various other greedy, selfish cretins. That's what has led to them becoming a regional, MINORITY-STATUS party with a dim future and even dimmer prospects for gaining control of the country any time in the near future, barring an increase in widespred ignorance.

The democrats, meanwhile, built a party of progress with the loss of the backwards southerners. I believe good riddance is the proper term.

Posted by: Praise Geezus! (Dino) at November 19, 2008 9:07 AM

So let me see if I have this right, the Democratic Party pissed of all the southerners because they weren't racist enough, so the southerners all decided they'd vote for the party that actually passed the laws they supposedly decried - and that created an influx of racists that overtook the party? Who you learn history from "Sheets" Byrds (D) ?

Posted by: xantl at November 19, 2008 9:22 AM

The republicans didn't create nor promote the Civil Rights Act. it was the Kennedy administration that had their Justice Department promote it to liberals in Congress. The republicans of the time were content to sit back and watch the issue tear the democrats apart. When it looked like a compromise was getting close to passing the Act, republicans then balked, expressing concern that the Act would force employers to hire people they didn't want to hire. Um, wasn't that the POINT??

Republicans then, tried to throw a wrench into the works but it was too late.

I do admire your self-delusion in believing that republicans/conservatives have ever been responsible for anything good that this country has done for its people.

Another example of conservatism wrong-headedness: I would best 99% of you depend on Medicare to assist you aged relatives with what would be crushing health care bills. I know for a fact you all tap into this "socialism". Now, go back and look at how conservatives/republicans tried to block the passage of Medicare, preferring instead to saddle sick old people with no alternative to poverty in old age. Your hero Reagan even made a famous recording that ominously warns against the "socialism" of providing old age health care subsidies.

Yeah, that's the kind of people you are. Indifferent to the needs and desperation of one of our most vulnerable groups, sick, old people. Your selfishness knows no bounds and totally obliterates any shred of decency you might {unlikely} possess.

Posted by: Praise Geezus! (Dino) at November 19, 2008 9:31 AM

Actually progress isn't quite the term I'd use to describe the new Democratic Party. Devolved would be more appropriate, ever since liberals assimilated the party.

It needs to be remembered, that the current day liberalism that now infects the Democratic Party, had it's genesis in a hallucinogenic/psychotropic drug induced orgy at a rock concert in the late 60's.

This is hardly fertile birthing ground for a rational political philosophy.

Having said that I will agree that yes, good riddance to the racists. However I'm not sure they've disappeared, since voting for a candidate exclusively for his black skin color, is equally as racist.

Posted by: Jaeson at November 19, 2008 9:35 AM

So how much money out of your pocket did you contribute to buying sick peoples medicine ? how many hours have you personally donated at nursing homes, or hospitals? what's that ? None?
BORING TROLL, IS BORING.

Posted by: xantl at November 19, 2008 9:41 AM

Jaeson, the Democrat party has always been about taking rights and property away from one group of people and giving them to another.

Andrew Jackson began the tradition when he took land away from American Indians and gave it to white settlers.

His successors up through the Civil War deprived black people of their freedom, and gave it to white slaveowners.

The tradition continues today as people who work and are productive have their incomes confiscated at every increasing rates to provide welfare for special interest groups, trial lawyers, and connected corporate interests.

Posted by: V the K at November 19, 2008 9:43 AM

That present day liberalism that "had it's genesis in a hallucinogenic/psychotropic drug induced orgy at a rock concert in the late 60's" as you say, just wiped the floor with republicans. Totally defeated them.

And it's refreshing to see that conservatives still think that 99% of the money taken from them as a fee to live in this country goes to "welfare". It means you're still cluless to the fact that welfare in all of it's forms never accounted for more than 7% of the budget (it's more like 3% now). And that most of welfare goes to feeding and sheltering poor women and children. It shows again what miscreants you people are that you'd gleefully spend a trillion bucks in Iraq killing other peoples' kids while you lay awake nights worrying that poor women and children in your own country might be given a few pennies.

Your taxes go to the Pentagon, to servicing the enormous republican debt, tax cuts for the rich and now, to bail out rich guys on Wall Street and in corporate America.

Fools.

Posted by: Praise Geezus! (Dino) at November 19, 2008 9:53 AM

Remember, LIBERALS are about hypocrisy. What ever they say is exactly the opposite of what they do. PROGRESSIVE!? In no way. They are about digression! If they claim the conservatives did it you can bet they just got done doing if. It's in their manual. Another word from them is "LIARS".

This guy is comedy gold.

Posted by: xantl at November 19, 2008 9:55 AM

It's typical of liberals to lay blame, grab credit, or rewrite history - they never take responsibility. It's because they are, (due to their documented mental disorder), irresponsible. We have many, many examples on this very board of irrational irresponsibility that goes unrecognized by the afflicted, i.e. crazy people don't think they're crazy; fools don't recognize their foolishness.

Posted by: Jimbo at November 19, 2008 10:04 AM

Medicare grew into Medicaid socialism and now both programs are monstrosities of corruption and waste … as Reagan predicted.

. This seems to be what happens with most government-subsidized programs because no matter how well-intentioned, the programs become money troughs.
Medicare does provide reasonable (although at times adversarial) social services to indigent elderly, but pay-as-you go and a lot of insurance programs do it better, both for medical services delivered as well as for reimbursement. What happens is that when programs such as Medicare and Medicaid are extant for generations, people come to depend on them rather than to plan for their own self-sufficiency in twilight years. The intent of these programs should be to pick up special cases, rather than blanket protection for whoever wants it.
Recall that state and federal funding was the original source of urban decay, now found in almost every inner city in the U.S. Black income, employment and homeownership were actually on the rise prior to the national metastasis of federally-funded housing projects and welfare.




It really doesn’t take much more than to look around the U.S. or anywhere in the world to see that Government-subsidized housing, medical care or any other hand-out program becomes permanent rather than temporary, and ultimately produces corruption, waste, poverty, violence, addiction, disease and death. More than anything, antipoverty programs from the ‘60’s on were and are conceived as government exhibits meant to demonstrate that Government is in control.

But like just about everything a government does, its efforts are always wrong-headed, coercive and have myriad unintended consequences.


The degree of the present economic downturn will be a direct function of government involvement.

Posted by: Fiberal at November 19, 2008 10:04 AM

To me, every government bureaucrat doing a job the government shouldn't be doing, every special interest group that gets a grant from the government to do something that isn't necessary, every person whose job exists solely because of legislated political correctness (e.g. "Diversity Coordinator") is a recipient of welfare in some form.

Posted by: xantl at November 19, 2008 10:16 AM

Worse yet, Fiberal, in addition to wasting hundreds of billions of dollars through fraud and inefficiency, government involvement in health care drives up costs and lowers the quality of care.

Complying with Medicare and Medicaid regulations requires doctors to hire full-time staff just to cope with the paperwork. Meanwhile, there is no incentive on the consumer end to hold costs down (because 'somebody else' is paying for it.)

And then there are the trial lawyers, guys like John Edwards channeling dead babies and using junk science to win millions in malpractice suits. In some parts of the country, it is impossible to find an OB/GYN because none can afford malpractice insurance.

The only thing more insane is the belief that MORE government involvement in health care will somehow fix the problem.

Posted by: Big_Daddy at November 19, 2008 10:25 AM

Jimbo,
If liberals are so irresponsible and stupid, then why is it the red states are all fat and poor and we're wealthy and healthy?

If we're stupid, then why are we the leaders of industry? Why so we make up a vast majority of the scientists and the doctors and the engineers who actually make things and invent things and affect business and policy and shaping the future of technology and the world, while you are nothing but people who create nothing and add nothing to the world, just write on internet boards about how stupid scientists are? You call us stupid, but yet you buy the products we sell you. The military gobbles up the inventions produced by the labs at Yale and MIT and Harvard and all the other ivy league institutions you denegrate. You inject your children with the vaccines we refine for you.


If I am stupid, then why do I work at MIT? Why am I on the "robot mule" project which is set to revolutionize the way the military carries equipment and operates rescue missions? Why do I live in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in New England? Why do I pay zero dollars in electricity because I have made my home completely self sufficient via solar technology?

Call me stupid all you want for being a liberal, but I'm rich and successful and involved in robotic projects that have had and will continue to have far reaching global impact in how effectively our military and businesses are able to operate; and, statistically speaking, you are most likely obese, lower class, and are doing absolutely nothing with your life that will ever have significance in the world at large?

So go ahead and laugh at me online. It's all you have, anyways. You are powerless. I, on the other hand, will laugh all the way to the bank.

from the net...

Dear Red States...
We've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country, and
we're taking the other Blue States with us.
We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially
to the people of the new country of New California.
To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot
Spitzer. You get Ken Lay.
We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.
We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You
get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states
pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate for married couples is 22 percent lower than the
Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a
bunch of single moms.
Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and
anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at
once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have
kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no
purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their
children's caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq, and
hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our
resources in Bush's Quagmire.
With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent
of the country's fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple
and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation's fresh fruit, 95 percent of
America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners)
90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most
of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and
condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Harvard, Yale,
Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88
percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care
costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the
tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern
Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh,
Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.
We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was
actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred
unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say
that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved
in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy b*****ds believe you are people
with higher morals then we lefties.
By the way, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt
weed they grow in Mexico.
Peace out,
Blue States

My posts were well-reasoned and substantial. Don't blame me for educating you and that you can't refute my positions.

Yes, you all complain about Medicare but you've all used it to increase your family wealth by turning over your aged realtives bills to the government and the greater society.

As for Medicaid: 70% of the money goes to nursing homes to care for the elderly of the middle and upper classes who hire lawyers to hide the old peoples' wealth so that they appear poor. This is so their heirs can inherit the money without spending it on nursing homes. In others words, moneyed-class welfare scams.

Anyway, the only reason that Blacks have the perception that Republicans/Conservatives don't "care" about them. Is because we don't think anyone should rely on the government. Republicans were the party of the Black people prior to 1964 due to the efforts of the founders of our party during Reconstruction.

It wasn't until the Dems realized offering "free money" was a quick way to get votes that the Black community really threw their weight behind the Dems. My favorite line of the about comment was the warning about turning the black population into "wards of the state". Very prophetic indeed.

That present day liberalism that "had it's genesis in a hallucinogenic/psychotropic drug induced orgy at a rock concert in the late 60's" as you say, just wiped the floor with republicans. Totally defeated them.

I'm not sure that 52% of the vote represents a mopping of the floor.

Regardless, a victory does not change the fact that the liberal political philosophy was born out of mind altering drugs. It is possible for the majority of the masses to go insance. Take the socialist paradise of Jonestown for instance...

Posted by: Jaeson at November 19, 2008 10:57 AM

Xantl, I did a little research of my own. Interesting stuff I learned.

States with the largest deficits projected for 2009: California ($22.2 Billion), New York ($4.9 Billion), New Jersey ($3.5 Billion), Massachusetts ($1.5 Billion), Ohio ($1.3 Billion), Illinois ($1.8 Billion) and Virginia ($1.2 Billion). Last I checked, those were all Democrat-run blue states. (Alaska, Utah, and Nebraska are not projecting deficits, by the way).

The Democrat-run (90% for Obama) city of Washington DC has the nation's highest rate of AIDS infection,the other top five were Baltimore, MD, San Francisco, CA, Philadelphia, PA, and New York, NY. All bastions of deep-blue liberal Democrats.

Washington DC also has the distinction of having the nation's most expensive and worst public schools, with only a 40% graduation rate, and a corruption scandal involving over $3.5 Million in embezzled fund. Other miserable school districts are all in deep blue cities: Cleveland, Memphis, Milwaukee, Columbus OH, and Chicago.

The nation's highest unemployement rates (October 2008) are in the deep blue states of Michigan, California, and Rhode Island. The lowest are in the dark red states of Utah, Nebraska, and South Dakota.

States with the highest rates of homelessness... California, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Colorado ... all blue.

Cities with the highest rates of violent crime: Detroit, St. Louis, Memphis, Oakland, Baltimore (Democrat strongholds, all)

Cities with the highest rates of homicide: Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore, Newark, Washington DC (Democrat strongholds, all)

Liberals have Detroit, Newark, Buffalo, Philadelphia, and all the other corrupt hell-hole cities.


Liberals have the blood of 50,000,000 abortion on their hands.

Posted by: Doug at November 19, 2008 11:43 AM

The Liberal mind has been, for the last 40 years or so, a peculiar thing to behold. It always claims for itself the best of intentions, ignorant of tendency for the road to Hell to be often paved with them. The problem with the Liberal "good intention" is that is generally not so much an intention, but a wish - or more accurately, a fantasy.

This phenomenon is readily displayed when dealing with medical issues and issues of life and death. The more thoughtful of folks realize that suffering is part of life, and that we, out of compassion, can seek to alleviate or ease it the best we can. The Liberal, however, cannot tolerate such human limitations on compassion: the Liberal does not just desire to alleviate suffering or ease suffering, but to eliminate suffering altogether - by anyone at any time by any means. Compassion is, of course, a very good thing. However, the Liberal seems to believe that claiming it as motivation insulates him from the moral consequences of anything and everything he does in its name. Such overreach results in the Liberal advocating mind-bogglingly contradictory - and in the end, monstrous - methods by which to achieve it.

The Liberal will, out of "compassion", rail at 'conservatives' for not spending enough tax revenue to care for the elderly and infirm; he will then turn around and, out of "compassion", advocate that the elderly and infirm should kill themselves. Out of "compassion", they will advocate the federally enforced accommodation and protection of the disabled; then, out of "compassion", advocate that unborn children with disabilities should be aborted. Out of "compassion", they will argue passionately for the sparing of the life of a convicted murderer; then, in the name of "compassion", coldly advocate the slaughter of the innocent unborn child.

Of course, the highest form of "compassion" for the Liberal is to advocate that the government provide health care to all those who cannot afford private health insurance. The tax increases required for this will certainly cause layoffs and higher prices (especially in the pharmaceutical industry, the lifeblood of American medicine), thus ensuring that even more people will not be able to afford their own health insurance - which will, of course, require even higher taxes to be able to service them too. But that won't matter to those receiving government health care, because they, like their socialized-medicine saddled neighbors in Canada and across the pond in England, will be waiting 8 months for simple procedures, as "compassion" won't magically create the veritable army of trained medical personnel required by government operated health care, nor will it provide the cost containment in the medical industry to keep them sufficiently supplied.

The Liberal, though, will get to feel good about himself, convinced as he is that his compassion absolves him of any blame. In the end, his failure to eliminate a permanent feature of life will be blamed on the "ignorance" of everyone else, and the damage he did (most of all to the folks he was trying to help) on his quixotic quest will be incalculable - all done in the name of "compassion".

Why stop at 50,000,000,000,000,000 with your claims of aborted fetuses? LOL, I find it hilarious how you people exaggerate.

Remember too, that conservatives have abortions at a higher rate than liberals. The shame and lack of sexual preparedness (relying on abstinence isn't very effective) are the reasons.

Posted by: Dino at November 19, 2008 12:18 PM

I live in the S.F. Bay and I'm so sick of all these liberals and their white guilt. You should see the dumb white people out here. They have dreads, wear ethnic clothes, do Thai Chi and try to claim the buddist religion. They look like a bunch of assholes. I'm half white and I don't feel guilty for shit!

Posted by: Chrissy at November 19, 2008 12:22 PM

It is typically Orwellian to assert that it is the party of individualism that is racist, rather than the race-obsessed party of collective identity.

Posted by: Beef at November 19, 2008 12:33 PM

Chrissy,

Perhaps you'd be happier living in Texas. No "weirdos" there.

I tell conservatives here in Portland the same thing. If you don't like liberals move to a conservative place. They won't because living in a conservative place is like being dead.

I left a conservative place to live here. Never looked back.

Dino:

"Remember too, that conservatives have abortions at a higher rate than liberals."

When you overreach, like you did here, one is lead to wonder how on earth such a statistic could be compiled. Like your statement the other day about how everyone - rich, poor, middle class, elderly - does better financially under Democratic governance, you provide no citation for your evidence to back up your claim.

Even more troubling is the sheer volume of comments you make every day here. No thoughtful person would need to make even a fraction of the number of comments in order to successfully express their position, and certainly no thoughtful person would engage each and every slight made towards him while ignoring the more serious commentary criticizing his position.

I find it very odd that you cannot find better uses of your time than to make 50 comments a day on someone else's blog. If you are as truly intelligent as you claim yourself to be, I hope you find your way to use that intelligence to seek out a wiser use of your hours and energy.

The CDC stats seem to indicate the number of abortions over the last 35 years is at least 30 million. Does it really matter if its 30 million or 50 million? Ive seen Planned Parenthood stats higher than 30 million. Its like debating whether 3 million or 6 million Jews were killed in Nazi death camps.

As for Dino knowing the political persuasion of those who get abortions, nobody compiles that data. But most abortions take place in poor areas of cities - hardly conservate areas. Blacks get abortions 3 times as often as whites. Most abortion clinics are located in inner cities - bastions of liberalism. Most abortions are done for money reason and convenience.

Posted by: Name at November 19, 2008 12:52 PM

1,400,000 abortions per year (average) times 35 years since Roe v. Wade gets you to 49 million in the USA alone.

But, really, even one abortion is a tragedy.

Meanwhile, there is no incentive on the consumer end to hold costs down (because 'somebody else' is paying for it.)



All absolutely corrects points, but this one is especially galling bc it is so outrageous and tenacious: At our hospital (and others), the poor use the ER as a kind of daily coffee club where they sit around all day, even after service and after bringing their (multiple) kids in for scrapped knees, colds or imaginary afflictions. Attention to more urgent situations often have to take a second place and needless to say, the enormous costs are passed on to other, better-heeled patients. We are compelled to endure this.


Dino
Yes, you all complain about Medicare but you've all used it to increase your family wealth by turning over your aged realtives bills to the government and the greater society.

As for Medicaid: 70% of the money goes to nursing homes to care for the elderly of the middle and upper classes who hire lawyers to hide the old peoples' wealth so that they appear poor.

You make my point about corruption.

I am a third generation bay area resident. I am good friends with a lot of liberals. All the Liberals I know are not even from the Bay. Most of them are from the East Coast or places like oregon. The Bay Area was once a balanced place until the freaks came here. I was here first therefore I will not let these hippies make me leave. Besides, the more I am around these freaks the more conservative and proud I become.

And I bet they kvetch constantly because they don't feel they've been shown sufficient "Respect," am I right?

Look, suppose I have a friend on Medicaid, and we both come down with colds. I buy some Nyquil and tough it out. My friend, because he pays nothing for his treatment, goes to a doctor and gets a prescription for something to ease his symptoms.

Five days later, we both feel better. I've cost taxpayers nothing. He's cost them, what $300-400.

That's why the system is f***ed up.

Meanwhile, Britain's NHS pays for hymen reconstructions for Muslims and genital mutilations for the "transgendered", but won't provide cancer patients with life saving drugs.

Oh Yeah Dino...... How come every time I come to Moon Battery your ass is on here? How do you have so much time? What are you on welfare? Don't you have a job? For some one who can't stand Conservatives so much you had to move away from them, you sure do like to spend a lot of time around them on the net. You are a freaky little person. I guess people like me who respond to you make you feel significant.

Posted by: Chrissy at November 19, 2008 1:25 PM

Its a waste of time arguing with "Perfessor Robotron" over there. He never backs up any of his claims with facts, and will not debate his points (there are at least four people who has challenged him)

50,000,000,000,000,000,000 abortions is just a statistic.

One abortion is a tragedy.

One last comment on this bc you’ve really hit a button:


I am not on the front lines in ER but have an employee who was for a quite a long stint and tells me that more than anything else, the staff maintain their decorum not out of authentic respect or even out of professionalism necessarily, but out of fear.

What is the NAACP?

Posted by: Oiao at November 19, 2008 7:39 PM

Holy smoke.
I was raised in Carroll County and graduated from Westminster (the owls) High school back in the 70's. Attended a reunion there recently. From that article you'd think we were a bunch of crackers who lynched the darkies routinely for fun. In truth, not once during my childhood did I witness racist violence or problems and I was downtown, not blissfully hidden in the countryside. Knew a few black schoolmates and never had animosity toward them and in fact they got on just fine with their "redneck" school buds. Don't believe everything you read. Especially if a so-called "educator" instigates the controversy. As for the increasing minority-majority populace of Maryland -- Baltimore was largely black before I was born (early 60's) so that's nothing "new" for whites in Maryland to absorb. Not a big deal.

Posted by: fellowes at November 19, 2008 8:31 PM

the ONLY racial violence i experienced as a child was when they'd send all of us "light-skinned" children home five to ten minutes ahead of the "dark-skinned" children as we were targets of their hatred. we'd have to be arseholes and elbows out the door OR ELSE!

at one of the high schools some of the guys grabbed a long blond haired cheerleader type and drug her into the bathroom and took scissors to her hair and cut it off at the scalp. at the same school they apprehended a fair-skinned young lady and pulled her skin on her arms up and cut it off with scissors - it was ugly being not a person of color in the sixties...

as for the hispanics, once they found out i was of native american descent they pretty much left me alone (citing "loco"), but everyone else was fair game and there was ALWAYS a fight after school.

that was in socal. wonder if it's gotten any better for the average fair-skinned person there?

That's because the Democrat party is the party of giving a man a fish.

If you ever want an indictment of the inclusiveness they claim on the basis of their voter base, ask them which party it is that is fighting for the convicted felon vote and why they think they need it.

It should be NAACPTDOAODC - national association for the advancement of coloured people to the detriment of anyone of different colour (look up data on African-American violence against Koreans and other Asians - as well as whites)

Its nice that oolored ord people have nice associations.

I wish they would let us white people in California (we are the minority now) have special associations. When we try, they call us racist.

I just don't get it.
