Shock Video: Planned Parenthood Advises Pimp

02/01/2011 Comments (24)

Yesterday I saw a number of headlines screaming that Planned Parenthood has reported the Live Action group, which has been going undercover into abortion clinics across the country and exposing illegalities, to the Justice Department. Planned Parenthood is asking for some kind of investigation.

Because I don’t trust the media at all I figured that this was just about Planned Parenthod trying to get in front of the story, spinning it. I figured there was more to the story. And there is. A lot more. And none of it looks good for Planned Parenthood.

According to Live Action:

A Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey coaches a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers how to to secure...READ MORE

11 Craziest Things I've Ever Heard in Church

01/27/2011 Comments (106)

1) Whispered by a father in the pew behind me to his children who were being a little noisy: “When we get to the car I’m testing all of you on what the gospel was. And if you get it wrong you’re dead.”

2) Whispered by my daughter minutes before going up for her First Communion: “Dad, I think I’m gonna’ throw up.” (She did. Our parish priest later came to our home to offer her the Eucharist but she was still sick so we waited until the next week.)

3) Said by priest who noticed that two birds had flown into the Church and were dive bombing parishioners: “Oh, I know how to get the birds out of here. I’ll baptize them and then they’ll only come back twice a year on Christmas and Easter.”

All Mass Murderers Are Not Created Equal

01/24/2011 Comments (21)

In the wake of the mass murder of seven babies by a Philadelphia abortionist I have to ask where’s the Presidential press conference? Where’s the nationally televised memorial? Where are the t-shirts with the catchy slogan? Where’s the media blame game? Where’s the feature pieces in national magazines on the societal implications of the murders?

Seriously. I’m wondering why isn’t the murder of seven babies of similar national implications to the horrible murders in Tuscon?

There are currently 15,000 mentions of Jared Loughner in the news recently, according to Google. But as of Sunday night there are less than 1,400 mentions of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. That’s 10 percent. Truly, silence is the...READ MORE

Condoms Should Come With Capes

01/18/2011 Comments (17)

To the progressive mind, there’s nothing condoms can’t do. It’s true. The belief that synthetic rubber birth control has the ability to cure any and all of humanity’s ills is a bedrock belief of the progressive movement.

Ask a progressive how to solve the biggest problems facing the world and within a minute they’ll mention condoms. Guaranteed.

World hunger? Condoms.
AIDS? Condoms.
Global warming? Condoms.
Poverty? Condoms.
The deficit? Condoms.

In fact, have you noticed that the only times progressives even give lip service to attempting to reduce abortions is when they’re pushing free condoms. They always say that the best way to reduce abortion is…MORE CONDOMS!!! Because that’s...READ MORE

Ick Factor at Memorial Rally?

01/13/2011 Comments (110)

Anyone remember solemnity anymore?  I’m not sure we do.

Watching last night’s memorial for those gunned down in Arizona I couldn’t help but feel that that the nationally televised “memorial” had little to do with the victims of last week’s tragic shooting. All the news leading up to the event was about whether President Barack Obama could deliver a stirring speech (which he did.) The news itself made the event about Obama, politicizing it before it even began.

And then the actual memorial started with a politically correct blessing from Native American Carlos Gonzalez who received a loud cheer for saying he was Mexican on his mother’s side. Yay Mexico? What’s that about? But I think it...READ MORE

Let's Give Kids the Right to Vote?

01/09/2011 Comments (7)

Should kids be given the right to vote?

Michael Kinsley, writing for The Politico, says the idea might be worth considering if giving children the right to vote would act as an impetus toward limiting entitlement spending. Me? I think it would be the best way to guarantee an amendment guaranteeing unlimited candy, Legos, and horses to all children. But maybe I’m just being cynical.

But Kinsley adds a wrinkle to the thought that intrigued me:

Let children vote. Or rather, extend the franchise to children, but let parents vote on their underage children’s behalf. In effect, parents would get an extra vote for every child. How would this solve the entitlement problem? It wouldn’t, directly....READ MORE

Making Fun of Dick Clark

01/02/2011 Comments (29)

I received a call on the morning of New Year’s Day from an old friend I hadn’t spoken to in a while, wishing me a Happy New Year. He asked me what I’d done the night before and I told him I was in bed by ten p.m.. He made fun of me and said he knew me when I did anything but sleep on New Year’s Eve.

We laughed. He said he stayed home and watched ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. And then he said something that made the laughter stop. He said in a slurred voice, “I’m Dick Clark and welcome to Time Square. Now back to you Ryan.”

And then he added, “Seriously, they should just retire him or have him talk to a camera that’s not plugged in. He wouldn’t even know the difference. We...READ MORE

MTV's Abortion Special Forgot One Little Thing

12/30/2010 Comments (25)

If abortion is a completely legitimate and moral decision why not televise it? I know it’s a shocking suggestion but I think dragging abortion out of the media imposed darkness is essential to the pro-life cause. So many of the gains made by the pro-life cause have been due to advances in technology in ultrasound and people seeing the unborn with their own eyes. But last night MTV aired their VERY IMPORTANT SPECIAL on abortion. Now, silly me, I actually had some hope that something good might come out of it. I was wrong.

The show “16 and Pregnant” on MTV actually does a good job of showing the real life ups and downs of being a young Mom. In fact, last year a number of feminists were upset...READ MORE
