everything you ever wanted to know about progressives part 562.84


Benjamin Solomon “Ben” Carson, Sr. (born September 18, 1951) is an American neurosurgeon and the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital….He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States, by President George W. Bush in 2008…

…His mother decided at age 13 not to abort him… and In 1987, Carson made medical history by being the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins (the Binder twins) who had been joined at the back of the head (craniopagus twins). The 70-member surgical team, led by Carson, worked for 22 hours. At the end, the twins were successfully separated and can now survive independently…


Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist now on trial in Philadelphia charged with seven counts of first-degree murder–he allegedly cut the spinal cords of late-term aborted babies who were born alive–apparently used to joke about the large size of some the infants he aborted and in one case, according to what a co-worker told the grand jury, said, “This baby is big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop.”…

    Give em’ enough rope and they will ALWAYS hang themselves.

    There is going to be a a lot of “chickens commin’ home to roost” over these next 2 years and there will be some real scum bag RHINOS too.
    I am going to be changing my political registration this week to Independent btw. And then I will spend the next few months tearing asses of the likes of Boner and Rove et.als.

    I want to say Hooray for our side ( A phrase that apparently originated with the side saddle ride of Lady Godiva).

    But the second individual takes much of the cheer from the galaxy.

    There are five abortion mills who kill up to the day of delivery and it pains me to say that one is in my town. It is a topic that I can’t spend much time on without having some very unsociable thoughts.

    ^ I’m quite horrified by the magnitude of evil embodied in this “man”…and the contrast hit me today listening to Carson speak…

    It’s “people” like Gosnell who’ve brought me more toward God.

    Now you know why people like me say that abortion is murder.

    It has always amazed me how some individuals can completely, 100%, turn off their humanity. It’s not like Gosnell is an exhausted soldier in the heat of battle having just seen his closest buddies blown to bits. He is living a nice, comfortable life, no stress other than probably having to fight a traffic jam or two. And yet, somehow, something in him has snapped and he can kill ruthlessly, making jokes, without the slightest hint of compassion.

    At least we will never see Cuba Gooding Jr playing Dr Kermit Gosnell dancing around screaming “Show me the money!!”

    He did a damned good job playing the good Dr. Ben Carson.

    DHS, Uhbamacare, more taxes and regulation of our daily lives, billion rounds of hollow points, 2,700 MRAP’s, drones, Patriot Act, election fraud, imminent runaway inflation…

    Forgive the OT, but today is March 23, a notable day here in Richmond, Virginia. Take heed; change a few words and this fits well right now:

    ….They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave….
    …It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
    - Patrick Henry, in an address at St. John’s Church, Richmond, Virginia, on March 23, 1775.

    The bigger tragedy is that the media is ignoring the Gosnell trial.

    A law school buddy asked me on Facebook when I posted about Gosnell, “Steph, is there a risk that by using this animal as a poster boy for pro-life positions you might alienate the moderate folks interested in a discussion on the issue?”

    I replied:

    “Possibly. But the bigger story, Steve, is the fact that this trial is going largely unreported by the media.

    We do not need to always make abortion an issue of morality or when life begins – let’s start by viewing his practices and asking how many other clinics purporting to “serve the community” are out there with similar horrific conditions and how much of a cash operation is such a place. Is Dr. Gosnell unique? I don’t think so. Is there an expose here? Yes. Will anyone bite? Ah, if this were a clinic doing cosmetic surgery, you would see, “Tonight, on Nightline – are you safe getting a breast augmentation?” and the details would be widely known. But with an abortion clinic, relative silence, despite what extends beyond negligence into criminal activity. Even a person who is pro-choice should be enraged by this story and be demanding an oversight on the industry before another woman dies.”

    Kind’a like the difference between a sculptor and a con breakin’ rocks in a prison yard.
    Kind’a like the difference between an engraver and a graffitist.

    When the Dr. first became the brunt of the left because he dis respected their ONE by using a prayer breakfast to tell the truth and the more we heard about him (nothing about his award from President Bush) the more I wished I could start from his and our Presidents births and compare the lives of both of them. Now I ask— how long has this so called Dr. abortionist been practicing b/4 anyone was interested in him and not for the abortions but for his drug trade. So the abortion business was fine but the drug trade wasn’t is that it?

    It IS murder.

    Not by man’s law, perhaps, but by a higher law, which will be enforced without bias, without prejudice, and without attorneys.

    A woman would be charged with murder if she killed her new born right after it was born.
