So, Renee Ellmers

As you may know, I'm pro-choice, much like Rep. Renee Ellmers.

Now, superficially, it may seem like I should like her Pro-Choice position, which is so much like my own Pro-Choice position. If we're looking only at the position.

Which I'm not. Because whether or not Renee Ellmers agrees with my pro-abortion politics, which she plainly does, is besides the point.

The point that is foremost is this: GOP politicians must stop fucking lying about everything.

Here's a not terribly-well-kept secret: Most of the GOP establishment -- the elected officials, the shadow government of consultants and "think tank" people and so on -- has spent the great majority of its adult life in Progressive Dominated Social Circles, and have largely adopted their mores on a great many issues.

You know all those Corporate Donors who are so keen to make Mexico the 51st state?
Yeah they donate to the GOP as a form of Racket Protection but they've been schooled in progressive-dominated institutions and are for all intents and purposes progressives themselves (except on the issues of corporate taxation).

I'm not as bothered by this state of affairs as some conservatives might be; after all, I'm socially moderate (or even liberal-ish) myself.

But where I can agree with other conservatives is on this issue: The GOP must stop lying about every fucking thing.

The GOP treats its base like children who must be lied to with silly fictions to keep them in line, to keep them from playing out in traffic or making their face Stay In That Position Forever. Or, not quite as condescendingly, they treat GOP voters like marks in a con game.

Hey, at least there they're treating us as adults. Victims, yes, but adult victims.

Renee Ellmers is pro-choice. There is no dishonor in this (at least I don't think so, but consider the source).

But she is also pro-lying, and I've just about had my fill of it.

Sure, on this issue, I might actually support a little Tactical Lying on the part of the Establishment to keep abortion Safe, Legal, and Rare (which is their actual goal here), but I do not support the broader practice of lying about every fucking thing, such as the size of government, ObamaCare, Amnesty, and so forth.

The GOP, in its current incarnation, exists to legitimize, formalize, and strengthen the political gains made by the left-wing. The latter m'f'ers push American politics hard to the left through a series of gambits of dubious legality, and then the GOP comes in to say We retroactively bless these things as legal.

Enough. Enough.

If you're pro-choice, as I am, then fucking say so, and lobby for your position honestly.

But stop lying to every fucking one, treating GOP voters as if they are actually legally incompetent morons who must be tricked into doing the right thing.

This is precisely the same conception of the GOP base that the Progressives' have; I don't know if I should say the fact that the GOP shares this sentiment is scandalous or simply inevitable.

Renee Ellmers must be nominated as the first name on The Shit List. She must be voted out of office in 2016, even if this means installing (temporarily) Clay Aiken into that post.

It is good to hang and admiral from time to time, pour encourager les autres.

We need to take 10 of these m'f'ers out in 2016 to let them know we have our limits, and those limits were crossed in 2002.

When a Roman legion was guilty of cowardice or mutiny, they were sentenced to the punishment of Decimation, the execution of every tenth man, to encourage the remaining 9/10ths to take their obligations to the Roman state more seriously.

It is time to begin the practice of Tactical Decimation -- just firing people from their sinecures, not executing them, of course -- to let the GOP know we have no further need of soldiers who refuse to fight.

13 ALBANY -- Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, the longtime Albany power broker, surrendered Thursday to face multimillion dollar federal corruption charges, the Daily News has learned.

A stunning five-count criminal complaint accused the Manhattan DEMOCRAT, a state political fixture for decades, with pocketing more than $6 million in bribes and kickbacks in return for wielding his massive influence.

Silver stands accused of pressuring real estate companies doing business with the state to hire two law firms that were regularly paying him bribes, the 35-page complaint charged.

More than half of the $6 million came after Silver steered $500,000 in state funds to a doctor who in turn referred asbestos cases to Weitz Luxenberg, a personal injury firm affiliated with Silver for decades.


... these are federal charges. I guess he didn't give enough of his ill-gotten gains to Obama

30 This act of cowardice by the GOP, especially with a law that we have freaking 2-1 support for (!!!!!!), has officially told me that I no longer have a party. I especially started feeling that way with these idiots voting for Boehner for Speaker again, but this takes the f***ing cake.

I will no longer support my rep Mulvaney when his next 2 years come up. I will probably vote 3rd party for president unless Cruz, Paul, Walker, or Perry is the candidate. I'm done.

38 I lived in Kansas for quite a few years. There, the Rs & the Ds trade off governorship & legislature control fairly regularly (or at least used to). When a D governor would come along, who promised to veto any abortion bill, the Rs would dutifully provide one for the governor to veto. And when a R governor came along, even when the Rs also controlled the legislature there was never any such bill put up for vote strangely enough. Odd.

Posted by: Lizzy at January 22, 2015 11:56 AM (ABcz/)

59 Ace,
It's not just the lying. After all, that's a matter of principle and I've been told repeatedly by the Smart Set that clinging to ideology is not pragmatic and does not win elections.
What gets me more is that this wasn't even good politics.
If there was an issue with the bill (which Kevin Williamson says there wasn't -- it was not significantly different from a one that passed) then Ellmers should have raised that privately and made her argument to leadership well-before the eve of the March for Life.
Instead, she makes one of the most twisted arguments about the bill in public (I will vote for it, but whip against it, and write a piece denouncing it when it passes after I've voted for it) and, as the steaming turd on top of this nonsense, she claims to be speaking for WOMEN.
Then her cheerleader from Team McCain, Anna Navarro, openly on Twitter chortles about how this was an historic move by Republican Ovaries In Congress. She literally says the substance of the bill does not matter -- what matters is that GOP Lady Parts exerted their power.
I know in my head (which is filled with sciency goodness from my Ph.D. in developmental biology from the University of Chicago) -- and my heart (which is filled with humanistic belief in the value of human life) -- that abortion is killing an innocent person. I think most people know in their hearts that late term abortions are killing a person and, in many cases, killing a viable person (hence in conflict w/ Roe v Wade). Polling shows that women, in particular, do not support late term abortions.
But I also believe that the best strides will be made by technology and one-on-one dialogs. So, as much as I hate abortion, I have never made it a litmus test issue.
Not now. I want Ellmers' seat. I want her taken out for what she did. She's a cancer on the GOP and an embarrassment to women everywhere.

I don't use it that often. I use it sparingly, for a purpose. Here that purpose it to signal I am enraged.

but the use of it in the comments every sixth word just because the letters exist and can be combined into this word is a bad idea. not only is it ineffectual, but advertisers count how many times it's used.

i mean i don't want to say don't use it. I don't impose that rule on myself.

86 "If you're pro-choice, as I am, then fucking say so, and lobby for your position honestly."

Which starts with admitting it's killing. I could respect the pro-choice lobby a lot more if they didn't try to rationalize away innocent life as a "choice" or "blob of cells."

We have lots of good reasons to kill people. Abortion is the only instance where the person has done nothing to warrant the killing, but that doesn't necessarily render it per se illegal in the sense that morality with a basis in religion can't be the basis of law. It's nice for the religious of the two coincide without conflict, but religion can't be the starting point.

It must be at least acknowledged that the unborn are every bit as human as many others who the left seeks to embrace as funded wards of the state, and that the unborn also bear no culpability for their existence.

This admitted, if you believe there is a strong argument that killing humans for another human's convenience or some larger societal good is justifiable, that's the argument.

Just don't keep repeating the bullshit that it's lack of viability without mother or expensive medical care renders it non-human. Shit, the 40-some percent of the country Romney properly called out could be euthanized on this basis. Cut off government paychecks, "earned" or unearned, and they will not go back to being hunter gatherers. The vast majority will die.

Dependency does render an otherwise human being un-human. Termination of a human life is killing. Own it and then argue from an intellectually honest position.

"Despite Democrats' Claims, Mossad Chief Favors Additional Iran Sanctions"

On 19 January 2015, Mossad Chairman Tamir Pardo met with a delegation of American Senators. The meeting took place at the Senators' request, and with the Prime Minister's approval.

Contrary to the report, the Mossad Chairman did not say that he opposes additional sanctions against Iran. In the meeting, the Mossad Chairman emphasized the unusual effectiveness of the sanctions imposed on Iran a number of years ago in bringing Iran to the negotiating table.

191 The way I see it at this point politically is that late-term abortion is more akin to euthanasia. There is a line that is crossed when you think it's OK to kill a viable baby (whether you do the pick to the brain or leave it in a closet).

When someone supports this specifically, then they're mostly there for supporting similar things, such as:

*Liverpool Care Pathway - starving grams and gramps
*Gronengen Protocol - removing all care from sick babies
*Right to Death - Actively offing yourself (or I suspect, others assisting you in the decision), when yo are terminally ill*


*Note: Over half of Kevorkian's "patients" weren't terminally ill!

192 Abortion: never has motivated any personal behavior or political behavior, ever, in my case (may be first time I've even typed the word on a blog comment - that's how much it's never been part of my world). However .... as a logic machine more than a human, the "pro choice" thing (kudos to Blue Hen above for a similar point) has always been an embarrassingly transparent fallacious dodge.

So, speaking of being honest, it might be best not to pretend to believe in the histrionic and obvious logical fallacy that it's a question of "choice" - it's not, it's a question of defining the beginning of life. That definition may, reasonably, end up leaving a window for abortion. But it's not about "choice" or individual liberty, it's about defining beginning of life, since obviously nobody would pretend to believe that taking life (outside of war and self-defense and law enforcement) falls in the zone of individual liberty or choice.

It's a failed system.

They train for the position. They pay for the position. They'll lie to retain the position. It's what they do. It's all they do. They are professionals. They aim to rule, not represent, via party dominance.

Every once in a while, a candidate of honor appears and succeeds in spite of the system; but all are tested and almost all fail the test.

We have an oligarchy with the illusion of a democracy. I wish it wasn't so. The Overton Window moves here and now just like it has through all of human history: to the Left with concomitant loss of individual freedom until collapse.

2008 was the last time a state passed an anti-SSM ballot measure. In 2010, 2012 and 2014 all ballot measures related to the subject passed in favor of SSM or were rejected in favor of SSM (ie MN where a measure to ban SSM was rejected by voters).

If the right rises up and creates an actual opposition party, one of the first things they will do is ban elective abortions.

If they don't, and we continue to go left one of two things will happen...

Either society will collapse, and while there won't be laws at anything beyond the local level, people also won't have the materials to be frivolous about things like pregnancy anymore...

Or the left will get their honest to evilness Stalinist tyranny and the plebes won't be allowed to have sex for the fun of it...

So in the long run the abortion industry will go away...the question is whether it will only be after our society is destroyed or not.

Most active abortion supporters (the activists) have already come out about not really supporting "rare." In fact, the biggest abortion provider in the UK has said that it is OK with sex-selective abortion. Their reasoning is that they support abortion, regardless of the reason a person chooses to abort.

240 Also, Ace this goes back to the arguments we as a group have had about "electibility" and being pragmatic.

The side that you have in the past supported seems not to mind the lying as long as the R's win.

The other side considers that to be akin to going against their ethics since they are being asked to vote for a blatantly lying asshole (Romney, McCain, on and on and on).

To many of us winning is not the most important thing. Winning NOW and then going against what you say you believe is less that winning in THE END....winning the argument.

"It's time for a 3rd party."

We have three major parties.

One supports the rapid expansion of the federal government in all aspects of daily life. No intrusion is unsound on general principle. This party supports a generally dovish foreign policy.

One is fine with a massive federal government with fingers in every pie, so long as they're running it, and supports its expansion but at a much more gradual rate than the first. This party supports a generally hawkish foreign policy.

And one actually wants a smaller federal government, and thinks some things are not the government's business. On foreign policy its members are split between hawks and those very reluctant to intervene anymore, because how's that been working out?

The latter two parties are both called Republican, and the second does a wonderful imitation of the third around election time.

> Even the Catholic Church permits medical procedures to save a mother's life that may result in the loss of the baby.

It's a bit more nuanced then that. The procedure's purpose can't be to terminate the life. For instance, in ectopic pregnancy, the Church says you can remove the fallopian tube which would burst and therefore cause the woman to bleed to death, as a treatment, which does result in the unavoidable death of the fetus as a secondary consequence, but you can't abort the fetus in an attempt to save the Fallopian tube, because the positive end now comes through the abortion not alongside it.

255 20 weeks is a dumb formulation - 5 months is better.

20 weeks is half a pregnancy, and pregnancies are generally followed based on the week. Such and such happens at week 15, and such and such happens at week 22 and so forth.

That's why they use that formulation.

5 months might be better to sell the legislation (not that it's really needed- most people hear 20 weeks and instinctively think "yeah, that's enough time"), but the legislation probably still needs to say 20 weeks.

256 ace I applaud your open stance on this issue, despite a majority of your readership (myself included) standing to the right of you on this. At least you can have an honest conversation about the issue and why you believe as you do.

The police reporting requirement, IMO, is not an onerous one. Filing a report does not require one to press charges. Having been called on to perform rape exams multiple times, I always encourage the (alleged)* victim to file a report because it keeps their options open AND may help to catch and convict repeat offenders.

*I am pretty sure that some of these victims I have examined are having regrets about what they chose at the time and are blame-shifting. Not all of them or even a large minority, but not a trivial percentage either.

264 ". They believe it's rare and hard to obtain. Which is false. We have abortion on demand now and most Americans don't realize that."

Yep, the name "Carhart" gives me the same sick feeling as "Mengele ". If anyone reads Gonzales V Carhart, they'd feel the same. It's heartbreaking, and unfathomable.

And yet no one knows.

But you know, let me explain in case that includes some of our morons.

You probably know that partial birth abortion was banned some years ago. That procedure involved delivering the (viable) baby legs first until you reached the head. At that point, you inserted sissors into the base of the head and used a suction canuala to remove the baby's brain.

We determined this was too inhumane, so the following alternative is now used.

While the baby is fully alive, the "doctor" reaches into the mother's uterus with forceps and pulls the limbs off of the child one by one. This massive trauma typically, but not always, kills the child at osme point in utero. Once the child has been dismembered enough to pass through the cervix, the doctor pulls the child out. If he survived, he is set aside until he stops breathing.

That is late term abortion. If you support that, you are a monster. Sorry, not other alternatives.

No it's not that, at least to me. It's about the arguments that the pro-abortion crowd uses to justify abortion, which quite frankly, borders on eugenics-tyle dehumanization. "Oh it's not a baby, it's just a clump of cells"; "Oh the world would be better off with fewer people due to overpopulation and resource limitations"; etc. So why would an ostensibly pro-choice person be HAPPY about a mere clump of cells which will bring starvation and famine to the planet due to overpopulation? Answer: Because they are lying with their weak rationalizations. The truth is, they don't give one flying fcuk about the unborn child. They are completely amoral on the issue. But they can't have any support for their position if they take the nihilist view so they come up with these weak-sauce rationalizations to fool the rubes.

284 Moo Moo, you are hilarious. Your "skewed polls" comment cuts exactly 100% the opposite direction that you imply. All the pro-SSM polls have been contradicted, with only a few exceptions, by actual voting.

SSM has still not been approved/accepted/whatever by the vast majority of Americans, when they have a voice and a choice. Recall Prop 8 won easily .... in CA .... in the same election cycle that saw the election of this idiotic affirmative action intern as "president". THAT is how wrong you are about where SSM falls in the political spectrum.

But the key thing is not SSM, it's the process, which is the archetype for top-down soft authoritarian "governance" that has overtaken the Land of the Free. The judiciary, long completely out of control and shredding the constitutional model, is showboating it's unconstitutional authoritarian prowess by imperiously (and arrogantly - check out the Third World, dystopican-novel-type rhetoric coming from the likes of Justice Kennedy and the corrupt dumbshit gay federal judge in CA).

So you're histrionically wrong, and relentlessly so, about the political realities (today - you may be right in 10-15 years, given the indoctrination of the yutes). But more importantly, you're missing how the SSM debacle perfectly embodies the dissolution of the American constitutional model.

That and, frankly, quite a lot of them assert their "right" (or the right of the mother, but not the father) to have that life eliminated. IOW, even if a woman decides to "evict" the baby she's carrying past the point of viability, the pro-abortion crowd asserts her right to have that child killed (usually inside the womb, but sometimes outside it). Because somehow the mere existence of this person who shares your DNA is somehow an affront to the pro-abortion mother.

305 No it's not that, at least to me. It's about the arguments that the pro-abortion crowd uses to justify abortion, which quite frankly, borders on eugenics-tyle dehumanization. "Oh it's not a baby, it's just a clump of cells"; "Oh the world would be better off with fewer people due to overpopulation and resource limitations"; etc. So why would an ostensibly pro-choice person be HAPPY about a mere clump of cells which will bring starvation and famine to the planet due to overpopulation? Answer: Because they are lying with their weak rationalizations. The truth is, they don't give one flying fcuk about the unborn child. They are completely amoral on the issue. But they can't have any support for their position if they take the nihilist view so they come up with these weak-sauce rationalizations to fool the rubes.

It's so sanctimonious to sit there are pontificate about the evils of abortion. What about the evil shit that these unwanted kids will go through in life? Nobody from the pro-life crowd ever addresses that.

My rationalization is simple: it's a woman's choice, end of story. That's the whole pro-***CHOICE*** part of it. If you don't want to have an abortion, don't have one. But don't go around telling other women what they can or can't do.

This is completely true. Witness the hysterics the pro-abortion left gets into when they talk about the dwindling number of abortion clinics in certain areas of the country. There are some states that only have 1 abortion clinic for the entire state. That sounds rare enough, doesn't it? And yet bring it up and they will go into a tizzy about "access to abortion" and whatnot.

It's contradictory to want widespread access to abortion by having abortion clinics in every town, and also to have it rare. So, they choose the former.

What do you think it is, ace? A frog?


You have said yourself in posts of yore that the issue makes you feel uncomfortable. Why does it make you feel uncomfortable? Because it is murder, and you know it well.


This admission of a lack of understanding on MORAL ABSOLUTISM on this topic is staggering. A man believes a murderer deserves death, and that is that. A man believes a rapist deserves death, and that is that. That same man believes that people who defend them do not give a rat's plague-ridden ass about the victims.


A man believes that a baby in the womb being ripped apart with shears, vacuums, and saline solutions is murder, and that it must be stopped. Quid quo pro, an individual who believes those things, up against someone who defends the right to do those same things, of course believes that the person they are up against is pro-murder. It is murder. It's logic. This isn't I-love-science-sexually science. It's just plain common sense that every human being is equipped to figure out.


You know it.


I know it.


The entire country knows it.


For many and varied reasons, individuals choose to ignore it, and invent lies to comfort themselves - it isn't viable on its own, the rights of the mother, it doesn't have a soul yet and what is a soul anyway?.... but at the end of the day, when you look yourself in the mirror, you know you've sold yourself a lie.


Being angry at those who call you on it, and raging against a nonexistent double standard won't change that moment every day, when you look yourself in the mirror and decide to ignore the obvious lie you wake up and go to sleep with day in and day out.

She died of thrist.***I was always perplexed by the stated arguments for murdering Schaivo. According to those in favor, she was no longer mentally there. So from her perspective...what's the difference?And the question of the money to keep her alive...something there was an argument about...we are currently giving handouts to illegals and paying for studies into the effects of beer goggles.

There was contention between her parents, who wanted her to live, ad hwo volunteered to become her guardian, and her husband.
The husband was not idle after he became ill. She became inolved with another woman, had kids with her, but conitnied to play te dutifule husband; a husband who argued for her to die of thirst.

So much for choice. In this case, he ould have walked away, and ontinued with the new life that he had already begun. The decison of life and death of this human rested with him and him only.
Just as the decision to regard a young servicewoman's child as being a human rests with people who are "pro-choice". Not with her, not with her loved ones. In the eyes of current society, her right to choose means less than nothing.

Pro-abortion/anti-capital punishment is a combination of stances that makes zero sense to me.

I can accept being for both. I think it's reprehensible, but it at least has the weak virtue of being consistent.

I can even accept pro-capital punishment and anti-abortion, my prior stance, because the argument can be made the innocent are protected and the guilty are dealt with.

350 Americans strongly favor bans on late-term abortion since it's obviously killing an innocent baby and incredibly evil.

Monsters will lie about that, but they are lying monsters, so what cares what they say.

351 My daughter was conceived by a 19 year old extended family member. She made three different abortion appointments. I Prayed hard, harder than I've ever prayed, and praise God, she changed her mind. Decided to place baby with us. We were both ASTOUNDED at the 12 week u/s. My daughter was jumping, spinning - crazy! Then, the 20 week?? Holy crap. Sucking her thumb, playing with her cord.
20 weeks IS FAR too late for a merciful killing.
My daughter is now 8 and I'm not just saying this.
SHE IS GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

353 >Yep, the GOP is gonna totally win elections by pledging to ban abortions.

How many think that Abortion should have *some* restrictions? Or is that stat too inconvenient to look up for you.

>but on this ONE issue, you trot out an artificial absolutism and begin accusing anyone who doenn't subscribe to your artificial absolutism of being PRO MURDER.

It's a metaphysical belief. One that has very real world consequences. When you make arbitrary lines about when a human deserves rights, you have arbitrary lines. You can't paper over that, you can't sidestep it, it centers on one undeniable fact, we the collective decide when you are human. That is not a power humans should have. Every time a pregnant woman chooses to trade the whole life to come of the child in her womb, for her choice to live her life as she wishes, she commits a most serious crime against human dignity. Human beings can be no lower than killing the children of their own flesh for their own benefit. And in so doing, if that is not criminal, then there is nothing on Earth that is. If that shouldn't be stopped by power of law, no wrong on Earth rises to the extent that it should. If at some point as a society agree on that, we don't deserve any mercy, and should be dismembered in the same way that we so many times have done to our own children.

354 My rationalization is simple: it's a woman's choice, end of story. That's the whole pro-***CHOICE*** part of it. If you don't want to have an abortion, don't have one. But don't go around telling other women what they can or can't do.
Posted by: Mr. Moo Moo

I'm mr moooo.
I don't care about the rights of the other person involved with conception.
Ditto if she chooses to have the kid and goes after child support.
Mondo ditto if a woman chooses to carry a child, and it's killed as a result of an attack. No murder charge; mr mooo says that your choice is meaningless.
Cause it's a tad dificult to charge someone with pre-meditated "destruction of a clump of cells".

I don't care. I'm mr moooo.

Posted by: Thin veneer of civility at January 22, 2015 12:41 PM (XzRw1)

356 It's my understanding that the reason for changing their position was the language on the rape/incest exception which required the person to report those actions to the authorities before the exception could be applied. This was the same language in the original vote that passed but that section got a lot of push back after the vote.

That said, I'm not a hard-line pro-lifer. But using infanticide just as a form of birth control to allow irresponsible sexual behavior and to avoid being "punished" with a baby is revolting.

It's so sanctimonious to sit there are pontificate about the evils
of abortion. What about the evil shit that these unwanted kids will go
through in life? Nobody from the pro-life crowd ever addresses that.

Actually, we do.

Funny thing is, Jimbo3 over at Hot Air used the exact same lines... every time this debate came up. My replies to him were always the same. The guy was a staunch advocate of abortion, to the point that he recommended it to his own daughters.

Intellectually, I know I should pray for you. Realistically, I just can't help but laugh at the apathetic little man advertising FREEDOM!!! and accusing others of being uncaring about supporting girls in tough times, knowing nothing of the world beyond his own masturbatory self-congratulations.
Freedom indeed. We are not to use our freedom as an excuse for evil... the price will be steep, and it is well deserved, and it is coming to each of us.


I'll bear the burden of the times to come with a smile on my face, knowing how lost and aimless you'll be in those times. I will bear it gladly.


TL;DR: Yes, Moo, we do give a damn. We work actively on giving a damn. Don't make the mistake of assuming that all in this land are apathetic sensualists of your like, we're not wallowing in the muck with libertine humanists going the way of the dodo.

Hey I'll admit it, I'm a selfish SOB conservative.

My interest in abortion is and, for the foreseeable future, will be about **human rights**. The larger principles involved. When human rights are degraded or eliminated out of mere convenience, then that is a danger to us all. That is the path of eugenics, frankly.

We already have actual "ethicists" who seriously contemplate infanticide - real infanticide, not abortion - as a potentially ethical option due to things like overpopulation and, like the rationalizations like you bring up, the assumption that poor unwanted kids will just grow up to be criminals. So better to off them while they're still in the crib before they become serial killers, right? So we are already heading down the slippery slope of actually justifying outright murder on the same bases as abortion is justified.

I would expect an ostensibly libertarian-minded fellow like you to understand this basic point. After all, don't libertarians hold the abstract principle of individual liberty to have a higher value over redistributionist government that nevertheless provides for everyone's wants and needs?

367 Murder is a choice too, Moo Moo. By your logic, we should bring back manus, a lovely legal theory from Roman times that said the head of household held absolute power over all in it. A Roman citizen could strangle his slave or even son for any reason and not face trial.

What is murder, really?

If the person has no value to society or another person, let's just call it a retroactive abortion.

In fact, if people who are dependent on another for their existence can be aborted at will by the person giving that support, then what is wrong with the killing of welfare recipients?

370 Decimation has been misused in conversation along with a newly abused word - assassinate.

Posted by: Anna Puma (+SmuD) at January 22, 2015 12:43 PM (twMaC)

371 One thing I have tried to do is to make an effort to edcucate other people on these issues. Especially the let it burn part and why this is the conclusion I have come to.

This is exceedingly difficult.

First of all most people either a) don't give a shit about politics, and therefore, don't know shit about politics or b) and convinced they are socialists (even though they will almost certainly tell you they are not), because this is what the media, the schools, the politicians etc. etc. tell them to believe.

Both of those classes of people are almost completely impossible to have any sort of meaningful political conversation with.

And by most people, I mean this very fucking much. There is a good 20% (round number) of people who are 'Republicans' out there. A smaller number of them are actually conservatives. There are also about 20% of people who are Democrats, and again, a smaller number of them are clued in socialists to full on commie scumbags. There are maybe 10 to 20% of people who actively say they don't care at all and don't think about politics. Then there are like 20% that are "independents".

You can't really talk politics with anyone, and if you do they will either ignore you completely, or be so misinformed and ignorant, that there is no way to get through to them whatsoever.

It makes educating these people very difficult.

--Yes, I pulled these numbers from my ass. They are wrong. But they are also correct enough to be instructive. The actual numbers are different but the problem faced by this set of populations is very accurate.

Almost no one will listen to you when you bring up let it burn.

Then there is the problem of appropriateness. I spend most of my time at work, interacting with my workmates. You cannot, for the most part, talk to them about politics, because it's bad form. That's most of my day crossed off the list right there.

How the fuck are we going to get through to our fellow citizens who are all getting robbed blind, just like us?

I don't fucking know the answer to this.

2. Was born to a homeless, unemployed drug-addicted, unmarried woman with mental health issues.

3. Was born to alcoholic parents who abused him sexually, hence he was put into foster care.

375 This is why I refuse to vote. The GOP is not getting my blessing; they're not using my "definitely not for the Democrat" vote as a mandate. The "let it burn" movement was right. And they're STILL right. Incrementalism is the enemy. Allowing the left to slowly inch its agenda forward regardless of who is actually in office while they maintain their stranglehold on Hollywood, academia, and the media is what allows the default political setting of this country to keep creeping leftward unremarked. It's when they have the power to make real, radical, sudden leftward lurches that the media, academia, and Hollywood can't keep up, can't placate, can't indoctrinate, can't legitimize. So let them have that power until we have a true opposition party.

Republicans don't stop it. They don't even intentionally slow it down. They LEGITIMIZE it. Our votes for Republicans give Democrats the breathing room they need to rationalize and institutionalize the changes they've made. Obama has done more damage to the cause of leftism than any Republican or group of Republicans since Reagan. Give us more Obamas, and make it fast, so we still have voters who remember what it was like to NOT have to include their medical insurance information on their tax returns. Let the hard left wake Americans up to what Democrats are really about because the right surely isn't doing the job.

377 Netanyahu, Obama not set to meet during US visit
Citing proximity to elections, PM and US president will not meet; Speaker Boehner says Netanyahu requested to postpone visit in order to coincide with AIPAC.

Netanyahu will be in Washington in part for a March 3 address to a joint session of Congress. House Speaker John Boehner invited Netanyahu to speak to Congress on February 11, but the prime minister has requested to address Congress on March 3 to coincide with Netanyahu's trip to Washington for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

The revised date is only two weeks before elections in Israel decide whether Netanyahu will continue to lead Israel.

"That is, fully 93% of all American Jews support legalized abortion in some fashion. Even political leanings, while influential, are not determinative.

408 RioBravo, this is all a silly tangent we're in, but wake up. I said that Moo Moo was precisely inverting the significance of his "skewed polls" reference. He was.

"Skewed polls" is a thing because the actual election went the way they said they would. In the case of SSM, all the polls he and others cite have turned out to be meaningless WHEN THE ELECTIONS ARE HELD.

A small number of states, either through referendum or legislative action, have approved SSM. Compare the number who have opposed it, some repeatedly, some repeatedly in the face of legislative/elite and judicial shenanigans (CA, where the state constitution was effectively shredded/dismissed by the SCOTUS - "no standing" for the citizens of a state when acting within their state constitution but opposed by lawless judges and faithless elected officials).

So, yes, he precisely inverted the import of "skewed polls". And no, the electorate or populace has not - not even close - signalled it's approval of marriage redefinition.

Academic? Perhaps, but that in a way is the point - the system is fundamentally broken, social engineering is now directly imposed by a smaller and smaller part of society, with a dismantled constitutional system in pieces in the corner of the room. It's not about the underlying issue of marriage redefinition, it's about the collapse of the process.

As distasteful as it sounds, you have to become a part-time community organizer. It helps immensely if you can organize enough true believers to help you.

You become a precinct organizer for whatever party--hell, make it the Let It Burn Party. Walk your precinct. Listen (not talk) to people. Find out what their issues are (voters vote issues, not candidates, unless the candidate is George Clooney). This is a perfect time, when no one is running. Educate them on how a conservative solution would be better. Get their contact info and hot button issues for later contact.

At election time, find your candidate and bring your volunteers with you. Wash rinse repeat precinct ops.

It's simple, but it's not easy. But it's representative democracy, and it's the only way to bring us back from the brink.

Even I realize we can't have everything all at once. That's NOT AN EXCUSE FOR DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

OK, that actually makes it worse.

Because the progressives always use rape as a way to paint pro-lifers as super-meanies who would force a child on a rape victim. Except....if it was really rape/incest (which implies forced sex), then reporting it to the police should be no big deal. You should *want* to have the perpetrator of either crime to be stopped and brought to justice. In fact, it would be especially important to do so since the fetus is **evidence** in the crime.

Yeah, so "rape" exception actually = get out of pregnancy free card.

447 The preborn in a woman's womb are human beings.

Abortion is the barbaric practice of killing unborn human beings.

Our pop culture no longer believes in hell, evil, sin, or other such things (unless needed in a movie prop), but the rule "thou shalt no kill' is there, so the desire to kill an inconvenient human being has to be rationalized.
Hence "pro-choice", a euphemism to deny the humanity of the unborn.

The very word is a lie. Ask a prochoicer if they favor gun choice, school choice, retirement choice (aka making Soc Sec voluntary), states choice in defining marriage and a minimum wage, healthcare choice (aka repeal obamacare), drug choice including Big Gulps, the choice to wear seatbelts, have coal power plants, drive biga** SUVs, emit carbon galore, etc.

Unless its some fullbore libertarian(*), you'll find the 'pro-choicer' is outright hypocritical on "choice". They simply favor killing preborn human beings as a legal practice, all the while favoring limits on our choice.

Because support of abortion involves lying and rationalization as a psychological crutch to avoid the hard rule that we humans sometimes find ourselves in circumstances where the right choice is not the easy choice, its far easier for those on the left to be in the 'pro-easy-choice-that-throws-humans-into-dumpsters' camp. Those mis-educated by our popular culture in believes easy choices are good choices ("live for today"), go along with the lie.

But it remains a lie. Its not that strict of a morality rule to simple say "Thou shalt not kill", its not like we are making everyone eat kosher or avoid boinking outside of marriage ('use a condom, dummy'), just DONT KILL.

Those who cannot grasp that concept are in no position to make any OTHER choices for themselves or others, and thus are in my mind unfit for public office ... or family counselor roles.


(*) and the best libertarians recognize 'the right to life' as important and thus tend to be prolife and not pro-kill-the-baby.

Problem. Solved.

Hmmm...it's stayed on topic.

Nearsider, your personal story is compelling. I have one that's more ambiguous.

I was anti-abortion at a gut level, but I didn't feel strongly about it. I fell in love with a girl who had had an abortion. That did bother me, but having gone through with the pregnancy would have been a personal disaster for her.

And I married her. We had two kids. Those kids are my favorite people in the world. They wouldn't have existed if she hadn't had the abortion.

I know that absolutists will say I am (metaphorically) trading an innocent life for my boys, but this experience softened my views on abortion.

477 I don't understand the GOP. Democrats don't lie to their base. They cater to their base and lie to the moderates and Independents.

That is the ONE and only thing I give Democrats credit for; when they get elected, they make damn sure the base gets everything they want.

Republicans also make sure the Democrat base gets everything they want; which is precisely the opposite of what they were elected to do.

478 Actually, Moo Moo pretty much exemplifies a major problem. Lack of reasoning ability and sloppy grasp of facts. Perfect embodiment of, unfortunately, the MORE attentive part of the electorate.

And I have join Moo Moo in my shock that, of all things, one of the first actions I read about with the new Congress is something about ..... abortion??? WTF? THAT was the urgent issue driving the historic mid-term results?

But one social style/etiquette question maybe even Moo Moo can help me with (being serious here): does one properly inquire about a woman's abortion views before consoling her on a miscarriage? I mean, a clump of cells being lost is no big deal to someone operating within thelogical framework of the pro-abortion types, so I would guess a pro-abortion person wouldn't care much about such an event, and offering condolences could seem awkward or insulting. Just curious.

I see. So your conception of libertarianism is juvenile and unstructured.

"nuh-uh nobody's gonna tell me what to do!!!!!"

Have you ever given any sort of deep thought to the rationalizations and ramifications that go into the libertarian argument for abortion?

If you really want to claim that the woman should have the right to decide what to do with her body, regardless, then what you are really saying is that whether an individual has **human rights** or not is entirely dependent on the woman's subjective opinion. That human rights flow from the capricious judgments of individuals.

So from this point of view, what justification do I have to claim that I have the right to do *anything*? My liberties don't flow from my innate existence as a human being, they are merely permissions granted to me by someone else. Which is completely contrary to the entire Western view of rights and liberties, and contrary to what every libertarian will tell you about all OTHER rights. Except abortion that is.

The libertarian argument for abortion actually turns the rest of libertarian thought completely on its head, if you think about it.

But I doubt you have given it more than just a superficial thought.

488 The reason the GOP establishment does not come out with its true positions is due to their fear of the Reactionaries.
For about 2 decades now, the reactionary faction has had a stranglehold on the party.
With the help of talk radio, Fox News, the blogs and even the Left, the reactionaries have an outsized voice.
The GOP establishment only hears the reactionary views and pretend to cater to them.
When given the chance, they don't carry out with their promises because they know these positions are crazy.
I wish the establishment had balls and destroyed the reactionaries.
But the reactionaries are better organized and use threats and intimidation against the establishment.

492 I know I'm way late in this thread, but help me out here:

I read Ace's rant. I even read the only link in the rant, to some article about Elmers voting some way or another on some kind of half-measure bill about abortion.

But even after that I still can't exactly grasp what it is that has Ace all hyped up.

What is Elmers lying about? What was her declared position before? What does her current hemming and hawing indicate?

I get that she's lying about something, but Ace's rant never once identifies the lie, and the article linked also does not identify the lie, since it only discussed this current event, not any historical context.

My question is not about my or Ace's personal opinions on abortion (which seems to be almost identical, actually), but rather about identifying Elmer's lie.

I agree with both parts of this. There was a trade, and good did eventually result.

If Imay submit, the term "absolutist' is used often as a weapon, as is extreme, fundamentalist and reactionary. I keep citing the example of a woman who is pregnant, and the child was killed when she was attacked. The most common result in an assault charge. Her choice is of no onsequence. because the current legal position is absolutist, that being the ability to abort at any time, for any reason. Two cannot co-exist legally.

Yes

Anything else you want to gripe about? If it costs society more money not to kill babies. Then yes that is a cost that is legitimate function of government. If I have to pay the prison costs for 10 people to give the one person a chance I do so. Otherwise I'd be building earthquake machines to level the Glades.

Again if we can't stop acting like the baby burners of old, we have no redeemable value as a civilization.

Posted by: Washington Nearsider, Keeper of the Guards, returned from 1080 exile at January 22, 2015 12:59 PM (fwARV)

None. But it follows you around, just as every evil we as human beings do follows us around.

It's called a conscience. Most people actively work on killing theirs, but it still speaks to them.

At strange times, in strange places, you'll hear that little voice telling you this is wrong. Might not be every day. Might not be most days. People really do work on killing their conscience, and, over time (and dangerously for them) they succeed.

Still breaks through now and then. That's the human condition.

623 Abortion thread - always a high-poster. In my personal life, I was responsible for two abortions. One was my choice, the other the woman's. I know now that I am a murderer, and I will have to face my God someday. One of those aborted babies has two siblings now, it breaks my heart to think of their older brother/sister.

629 A Yemeni government spokesman says the cabinet has submitted its resignation to embattled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi amid a standoff with Shiite rebels who control the capital.

Rageh Badi told The Associated Press that the government headed by Khaled Bahah handed its resignation to Hadi on Thursday without providing further details.

Bahah's government was formed in November as part of a United Nations-brokered peace deal after the Houthis overran the capital in September.

Bahah posted his resignation on his official Facebook page, saying he had held office in "very complicated circumstances." He says he resigned in order to "avoid being dragged into an abyss of unconstructive policies based on no law."

"We don't want to be a party to what is happening or will happen," he added.

664 The funny thing about the "Fiscal Conservatives" who claim that not liking welfare and being against the killing of innocent babies is inconsistent is that when you try to explain to them why it isn't: which requires things like a moral philosophy (usually, but not always, grounded in Judeo-Christian values) and what you might call a "holistic approach to society," they're suddenly not interested anymore.

Its as if since *they* can't conceive of the link between welfare and abortion (because it's more than one step back), such a link cannot possibly exist.

*Choosing a reliable form of protection
*Choosing the right partnet with whom to have sex (so if you get pregnant, he'll be there - you'll actually know his name 'n stuff)

But we get it Moo. You don't care about choice either. You care about your wallet and the cost of the welfare state - why I don't know - since you think it has contributed nothing to the debt.

Yes I care about my wallet. I also care about choice. If my daughter were to get pregnant at 15 (knock on wood it doesn't happen), you're damn fucking right I want her to have the choice to get rid of the baby. I don't want her life destroyed because she acted stupidly.

701 When the Left says "choice" they mean "choice without responsibility or consequence."

A choice with a price? That's oppression!
So free everything, free abortions on demand, but no guns. Because owning a gun demands you exercise responsibility, can not have that. Free public transportation but no free cars, same reason.

706 I am pro-choice too.

Carrying a baby to term doesn't remove the "choice."

You are too young to have a baby? Fine. You don't want to ruin your life? Great. It's called adoption.

You have the baby. You can CHOOSE to keep the baby and raise him or her as your own. Or you can CHOOSE to place the baby into the home of someone who will give them all the love in the world.

707 When all is said and done, though, I would prefer the Federal Government have no role in abortion at all and leave its regulation strictly up to the states. New York can have 10,000 Kermit Gosnell's hacking up children all they want while Utah outlaws it entirely except for rape and the life of the mother. And the only law would be barring the FedGov from interfering.

Cheap cynicism is an abdication of your moral obligation as a citizen of a democracy.

Since the party of stoopid went to all fiscal conservatives, it is no longer fiscal or social conservative.

Abortion is useless as a political issue. The country is split 50:50 on it, and almost no one can be persuaded to change their minds. I do think that strident SoCon stands damage the GOP brand.

But, it's also an issue of fundamental moral belief, so I can't really ask pro-lifers to not advocate in support of their core values.

The problem, as I see it, is that the GOPe has in fact shifted its emphasis from SoCon to FiCon, but (i) the Left/MSM perpetuates the caricature that the GOP is still the Religious Right of the 80s; and (ii) theTHE FICONS DON'T DO ANY FICONNING!

741 The problem is this issue isn't really thought about much beyond tribalism, you're either labeled pro choice or prolife, and all the extremes that come with it. So I guess I can understand GOP politicians just lying about it and finding ways to just check a box without doing anything about it.

Social conservatives that actually believe abortion is going to be criminalized in this country have to be dumber than rocks, so if that's what "pro-life" means, the politicians just look at it as a make-believe political goal that's never going to be achieved and treat it accordingly.

I completely support banning later than 20 weeks, but I also understand that social conservatives will fuck this up and would rather they not make the new Congress first big push to be on abortion. I guarantee to you all sorts of stupid are going to come flowing out from the Akin/Mourdock wing of the party.

This is a problem. The one that even a THIRD PARTY would not help (I know you are not advocating one, at least in this post, this is just an observation). Because the people who elect representatives would still have the same problem - telling LIARS apart.

782 This is yet another instance where I prefer Federalism over what we've got.


There's no single, best solution for this. Unrestricted abortion's been a failure. A total ban including the Morning After pill would not work.


But 50 states, legislating independently, would at least satisfy their own majorities with ill-conceived, unworkable solutions ... which would be better than this.


Provided ... of course ... that most of you could be satisfied with debating the issue in your own State, and leaving your neighboring States alone. On that, I have my doubts.

783 'It's nice for the religious of the two coincide without conflict, but religion can't be the starting point."

Really? Mmm, maybe our founding fathers should have followed that path instead of using their Judeo Christian ethics blended into Greek style forms of government to set up our government via our Constitution.

Explain to me how anyone formulates their morals and ethics without an understanding and belief in a higher power that one takes direction from in their daily life and to whom are ultimately answerable.

And how that belief can not be part of any decision or in how laws are formed?

We would end up at a place where it would be banned in some places and allowed in others and I'm alright with that.

Two big problems with that:
1.) Abortion isn't safe.The Dems have effectively barred hygiene and safety standards for clinics. Go figure, the one thing they won't regulate to hell and back is the one thing they endorse as legal for the promise of safety.
2.)It isn't rare. There have been tens of millions of abortions since Roe v. Wade.

But, my understanding is that her mother had plans for her life that didn't include a baby. Ergo, adoption. Good for her.

The % of abortions that fall into rape/incest/health of baby is SO small. The rest of it falls into really selfish reasons, reasons that I cannot fathom that they would allow for abortion to be legal for.

I think it's one thing to mess up on messaging when it comes to fiscal issues, it's another when you start having people on our side coming out and saying nonsense like an impregnated rape victim should be viewed as a blessing.

I would love it if we could all get on the same page about abortion and have a plank that everyone could agree on, but we don't. There's SoCons that think granting an abortion exception for rape victims is "pro-murder" a position that something like 90% of Americans would be disgusted by. To me, that's a common sense compromise, but not to them.

GOP: Fine, No to abortion (except in cases of rape, incest, health of the mother, and no you don't have to report it. We'll just trust you.)

I agree, but when you start trying to make the point then that women are going to just lie about being raped, you're done politically and you've made people MORE pro abortion than when you began the debate.

The way I look at it, it's like arguing about what color you want your unicorn to be. It's fantasy anyway to think that most abortion is truly going to be criminalized, with women being charged with murder if they get one. It's more about a moral stance like calling out a country that has human right violations.

For pro-lifers to get so upset about exceptions being granted and possibly abused on a policy that's never going to actually happen anyway is just self-defeating.

This means that Renee Elmers is out in front on every potentially unpopular thing for the next year. Anything that draws media flack, her name is on it, and she makes the press conference.

If she does that, she goes back in the fold. If not, we liquidate her.

854 Late to the party, so no one will likely see this, but:

The key thing about decimation was not that it was done, but *how* it was done. It wasn't the random execution of 1/10 of the legion by some outside force. The legionnaires were sectioned, with 9 being given short clubs. They were forced to beat the tenth to death - a slow and painful way to go, and pretty messy for the guys doing the beating. And the guy they were killing was their bunkmate/messmate. He wasn't some random dude from a different cohort/maniple that they knew in passing. They knew him well and had served together for quite a long time, in most instances.

Wrong. And that's the point of this post. This is entirely due to the failures of the few hundred Congressional Republicans.

There is nothing inevitable about the 400 or so Republicans in Congress. We are not compelled to accept THESE clowns, and reconsider EVERYTHING based on the notion that it has to get past John McCain and Renee Ellmers, etc.

What if, what if we had a different 400 people in Congress? That's certainly realistic and acheivable.

There were people like you who had the same attitude towards desegregation and abolition of slavery. Your set lost then, and you will lose now too.

865 Pro-life is the defining issue of the GOP and conservatism. Being pro-abortion means one is 95%+ likely to be a Democrat and a liberal.

On the other hand, immigration is a matter of dispute within the party and even among conservatives.

I expect the posters here to cast Ace into the abyss to join the proven pro-life but immigration squish Jeb Bush. No?

Moo has had that pointed out to him any number of times. He simply ignores that - like the Left, he ignores what does not fit his Narrative.

I'm coming around to an earlier poster's POV (Kindey Ardal?): if we have a country filled with Moos Moos then we're rotten and deserve to die as a nation.

A country filled with moral zeroes who don't give a shit for anything beyond their own selfish pleasures and their own bank accounts will end up losing those things. When Moo is no longer able to labor for the welfare state, he'll be put down like a sick dog and well, them's the breaks, old boy. You're not useful anymore, you're not wanted, the state has squeezed everything of you it can- so time to die, geezer. The ironic thing is that the selfish libertines will not grasp their own part in creating such a world.

The Gods of the Copybook Headings will have their final say...

868 You are wrong about safe, legal and rare. They want that for their daughters, hope they don't get pregnant, but if they do, want it safe and legal.
For inner city blacks, they don't give a shit about safe, legal or rare. Kermit Gosnell was a psycho killer and should have been publicly humiliated by anyone believing in safe legal rare. He wasn't because inner city blacks don't matter to "Most of the GOP establishment -- the elected officials, the shadow
government of consultants and "think tank" people and so on -- has spent
the great majority of its adult life in Progressive Dominated Social
Circles"

Prolife means caring about ghetto babies.

>>> "Safe, Legal, and Rare"



If you're pro-abortion,as you say, why should it be rare?



...



I think war and execution shoujld be rare too.


You know, you can stuff this silly Absolutism that
you guys trot out for ONLY THIS ONE SINGLE ISSUE. every other issue of
life and death you are willing to employ a circumstantial analysis, but
on this ONE issue, you trot out an artificial absolutism and begin
accusing anyone who doenn't subscribe to your artificial absolutism of
being PRO MURDER.





Posted by: ace at January 22, 2015 12:02 PM (E+pqw)
......


Um, maybe because BABIES are ABSOLUTELY ALWAYS innocent and the people we sentence to death are not and the people we go to war with are not?
Honestly, I didn't know you were pro-abortion... I figured that you apply science enough to know global warming is a hoax and that you'd apply it equally to life in the womb. This isn't about religion or morality here, just simply that science has shown that babies in the womb are just that: babies. Innocent freakin' babies.
Between this and finding out that you are ok with cheating in sports so long as one is not caught has kinda shifted my view here...

Abortion: never has motivated any personal behavior or political
behavior, ever, in my case (may be first time I've even typed the word
on a blog comment - that's how much it's never been part of my world).
However .... as a logic machine more than a human, the "pro choice"
thing (kudos to Blue Hen above for a similar point) has always been an
embarrassingly transparent fallacious dodge.



So, speaking of being honest, it might be best not to pretend to
believe in the histrionic and obvious logical fallacy that it's a
question of "choice" - it's not, it's a question of defining the
beginning of life. That definition may, reasonably, end up leaving a
window for abortion. But it's not about "choice" or individual liberty,
it's about defining beginning of life, since obviously nobody would
pretend to believe that taking life (outside of war and self-defense and
law enforcement) falls in the zone of individual liberty or choice.

And from Day One, according to DNA.

The 'moderates' can let me know when we can induce abortions in annoying endangered species like kangaroo rats, and get away with it, on the argument that unborn k rats are really potential endangered species and don't yet enjoy the same protections as a k rat.

"artificial absolutism"

Any coherent and uniform system is artificial. The idea that I will not park across your driveway because I owe you a duty to incovenience myself by parking legally further away from my destination is artificial absolutism.
