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

Death by Regulation

12/27/2010 Comments (5)

For years, progressives unable to convince a majority of Americans of the rightness of their opinions looked to judges to change the law of the land via fiat, rather than putting their ideas up for a vote.

This has had disastrous consequences for this country. Access to abortion would clearly be very different in America if legislatures were allowed to vote but instead a majority of justices declared the killing of the unborn a “right” thereby cutting off all debate and leaving America with some of the most liberal abortion laws in the world.

The New York Times is now reporting a new end run around the peopl. Due to Republicans gaining strength in Congress, the Obama administration may...READ MORE

Happy Meals, Sex, Violence and Condoms

12/21/2010 Comments (9)

The New York Times and their cohorts in kookiness have their pom poms out for a new lawsuit against a fast food giant for advertising happy meals. Why? Because parents feel bad about saying no to their children. Seriously.

It’s standard marketing: pitch your product to the most easily persuadable. Or as Roy Bergold, a former McDonald’s head of advertising, argued once: “Go after kids.” McDonald’s has done just that with the Happy Meal, a choice of burgers, nuggets, fries and other specialties with a must-have toy.

…The Happy Meal is up for some well-deserved scrutiny. Last week a mom from Sacramento filed a class-action suit supported by the center to make McDonald’s stop using toys as bait...READ MORE

Postnatal Abortions Are All the Rage

12/14/2010 Comments (17)

The culture war seems to be operating on an unsuspected new front. While many pro-lifers have been focused on mothers not killing babies in the womb, a staggering new scientific study indicates that incidences of parents killing their newborn babies is five times higher than previously believed.

It’s all the rage.

Come on, you can’t be surprised, can you? You didn’t think a little thing like birth would stop people from killing their babies did you? Seriously, why should the much heralded “choice” end just because the baby is lying on a table rather than in the womb?

Sydney Morning Herald reports:

A team of paediatricians examined the court records of known infant homicides in three...READ MORE
