Old Lies About Romney Make a Come Back with Populists…Time to Slap Them Down (AGAIN)…

By The Snark Who Hunts Back and The Conservative New Ager

Paul Ryan

The look on our faces every time these anti-Romney lies keep coming back.

So recently we’ve been seeing a string of complaints coming out the less intelligent, less thoughtful, and more populist/progressive quarters of the Right once again attacking Romney. And the problem is that the vast majority of these arguments boil down to two problems. The first problem is that they’re trotting out the same complaints that they used 4 years ago and were shown to be utterly without fact, basis, or sanity 4 years ago…and the second problem is that if you had a candidate to actually put up you would be singing their praises and not attacking the only competent candidate there is.   But the clearly the kind of people who prefer populists and progressives are the kind who like to repeat lies that have already been struck down, we might as well cover why these lies are horseshit once again…

Romneycare

So the first thing that all small minded people claiming to be conservative like to point to is Romneycare. They claim it’s the origin of Obamacare. Continue reading

Grow The F*ck Up: The Professor Probation Alternative

1276866247674The saddest thing about this installment of this series is that it isn’t an immature college student freaking out about politics or religion, it’s a grown adult with a job (well she had a job…) and responsibilities and influence over the previously mentioned immature college students.

This installment of Grow The Fuck Up is brought to you by Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young of the Feminist Studies Department of UC Santa Barbara.

Actually the previous two installments of this series make a lot of sense when you realize that people like this are allowed to teach college students.

Government Mandated Neverland: Parents? What Are Those?

I recently talked about the story of the of the Niklayev family of Sacramento, California in an article for Damn Straight Politics. The story was absolutely horrifying to me, that the police and a government organization like CPS could simply walk into your home without a warrant or any proof or documentation and take away a women’s child for unsubstantiated reports of neglect.

Are we living in the USSR now?

It’s like the government wants us to believe that we don’t have the right to raise our children as we see fit.

Oh wait, they aren’t actually OUR kids at all, they belong to the community at large, right Melissa Harris-Perry?

The government is invented a world in which parents don’t matter. Their own twisted version of Neverland where the peace pipe contains actual weed, Peter Pan is taught to recognize whether Tiger Lily and Wendy are sluts based on their clothing choices, the lost boys aren’t really sure they are boys at all, and Wendy can buy the morning after pill without talking to a doctor, a pharmacist, or her parents first.

Parents? Who needs ’em?

A world where no one ever grows up, but they all do adult things and expect someone else to clean up the mess for them.

California is pushing for legislation that would allow boys and girls to use whatever bathroom they want, regardless of gender, as long as they feel they have a different “gender identity” than they were born with.

Yeah, that can’t possibly go wrong.

California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano [is] pushing a bill that would allow public school students to pick the bathroom of their choosing based on their “gender identity.”

Assembly Bill 1266 would force boys athletic teams to accept girls if those girls identified as boys, or vice versa. It would force schools to allow boys to use girls bathrooms if they identify as girls, or vice versa.

– Breitbart

But what about the parents? Where is their say in this little scheme to promote “equality”. Now I have no problem with people who say that they feel like they should have been born the opposite gender, but the issue is that 99% of the time they still have the same plumbing they were born with if they are under the age of 18 and so do all the other people of that gender.

So a boy who feels like a girl wants to be in the same bathroom and, quite possibly, the same locker room as well (unless they plan to relegate the one transgendered kid on the team to a separate locker room before and after practice and games. Try that and you really would hear the howls of “DISCRIMINATION!” from the left) as your daughter.

So does the rest of the male population that identifies as male. What’s to stop them from claiming they are transgendered and walking right in any way?

Do you really want the problems that come with that? I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable putting my son or daughter in a room where they are exposing their genitalia to use the restroom or shower or change for games and having people of the opposite gender sanctioned to come into that room and expose themselves right along with them.

But somehow I’m just a closed minded bigot for wanting to have a say over which gender is allowed around my child when they are removing clothing.

Then there’s the fact that the FDA has decided that not only do girls as young as 15 need to be able to buy the morning after pill, but they really need to be able to do so without their parents permission and they really need to be able to do it without talking to a pharmacist about the side effects of a drug that, essentially, performs a chemical abortion.

The government is moving the morning-after pill over the counter for those 15 or older.

Today, Plan B One-Step is sold behind pharmacy counters, and buyers must prove they’re 17 or older to buy it without a prescription. Tuesday’s decision by the Food and Drug Administration lowers the age limit and will allow the pill to sit on drugstore shelves next to spermicides or other women’s health products and condoms — but anyone who wants to buy it must prove their age at the cash register.

The Blaze

Yeah, 15 year olds are totally old enough and responsible enough to understand the risks of taking dangerous medication.

Here’s a quandary, why are Plan B pills stocked next to the Trojans, but you still need a doctor’s visit to be prescribed a low dose birth control pill? Why aren’t they next to the flavored, glow in the dark rubbers?

Not only that, but in New York City school nurses can hand out the Plan B pill (and have, to thousands of students) without permission from the parent. I couldn’t even get an aspirin when I was in school, without a signed release form. How much longer till this spreads to your local school?

Parent’s opinion on whether their daughter (who probably has no idea if the medication is something she is allergic too or will interact with other medication she’s on) should be taking this stuff? Why would we need that?

Here’s another interesting “WTF?!” moment that happened recently.

Outraged parents say a New York middle school instructed young female students to ask one another for a lesbian kiss – and boys learned how to spot young sluts – in an anti-bullying presentation on gender identity and sexual orientation, according to Fox News’ Todd Starnes.

According to Starnes’ report, the children attended a special April 11 health class taught by college students at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, N.Y. Parents say they were not notified of the presentation.

The students were introduced to terms such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”

Some of the young female students said they were told it was common for 14-year-old girls to have sex and their parents couldn’t stop them.

WND

Now I know exactly which girl I would have asked for a kiss (and I probably would have got it) in school if this had happened to me, but that’s beside the point. (She was bad news, 2 grades above me, and so hot it hurt to look at her sometimes.)

Seriously though, what the ever loving hell?

The lesbian kiss request is weird enough, but teaching boys how to spot “sluts”? I thought that was a “no-no” in liberal ideology.

Mandy Coon, one of the parents, got it right when she said this:

“I am furious. I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s OK for her to have sex?”

__________________________

For some reason my little sister wouldn’t be able to buy a soda bigger than 16 oz. in New York City, but she could get Plan B over the counter and her parents would never be wiser. That infuriates me.

Every day they are taking away our right to make basic decisions for ourselves and our families, turning that right over to alphabet agencies. IRS, FDA, CPS, and so many others.

In the [paraphrased] words of Ronald Weasley, “Liberals need to sort out their priorities.”

Liberals really are living in a fantasy land.

Can You Spot the Difference? AKA: A clump of dead cells is a clump of dead cells, why is it profane?

Warning: this article may contain foul language and possibly disturbing imagery.

A professor at the University of Buffalo was arrested earlier this month when she let loose a serious string of expletives toward a, reportedly, fairly graphic pro-life display. This attracted the attention of the police who she then continued to swear at, having not said her fill already about how “vulgar” and “profane” the pro-life display was. The police eventually escorted her away in cuffs.

Laura Curry, a professor of film at the University of Buffalo, found a display so offensive that she railed against it and was warned by uniformed police to desist. “Where does it say I can’t use the F@#$ word in public,” Curry demanded. “I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary. That’s part of my First Amendment rights.” “That is swearing,” Curry says, pointing towards the signs. “That image is f@#$ing profane.”

Mediaite

Video contains strong language

But here’s a question, what was it about this display that she found so vulgar and profane?

Oh I know what I  and other pro-life people find vulgar and profane about an image of an aborted child, but why would a pro-choice person see it that way? I could understand if she had said the image was “disturbing” to her or if it made her “uncomfortable”, but vulgar? Profane?

If Once is Happenstance, Twice is Coincidence, and Three Times is Enemy Action, Then What the Hell is Ten Times?

Kermit Gosnell’s clinic, the Women’s Medical Society, was shut down in 2010 for truly heinous violations of medical ethics. Almost immediately the coverage from left wing feminist blogs began, only they weren’t actually concentrating on condemning Gosnell’s activities, as William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection points out:

The links provided in the Carmon article prove only that a small number of “feminist” writers wrote about Gosnell, but primarily out of a concern to protect abortion rights in the face of pro-life criticism of Gosnell.

Legal Insurrection

Their argument primarily consisted of reminding people that Gosnell’s clinic was an outlier, that other abortion clinics were perfectly safe and we shouldn’t jump to conclusions or judge them based on what we read or see in the Grand Jury report.

The problem here is that Gosnell’s clinic is not an isolated incident, which is being shown more and more since his clinic was shut down and suddenly the Department of Health in various states have begun to start looking at the abortion providers in their states.

A cursory search (meaning I spent less than 10 minutes on it initially) turned up 10 other abortion clinics that have been shut down for health code violations (among other things) since Gosnell’s clinic was shut down.

Gosnell and Sandy Hook, A Comparison

The site of horrors more disgusting than anything ever put in a horror movie.

December 14th, 2012 a tragedy happened in Newtown, Connecticut. A mass shooting which led to an almost immediate outcry for new gun control laws. More oversight from the government on gun owners and gun sellers in order to stop such a tragedy from occurring again. It was nearly impossible to turn on a television or get on the internet without seeing the media coverage and ensuing debate over gun safety.

On February 18th, 2010 an abortion clinic in Philadelphia was raided by the DEA and the police, because of an ongoing investigation into selling of prescriptions for powerful narcotics that was occurring in the premises.

If Children Belong to the Community, I’m Part of the Community. Leave My Kids Alone.

“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.- Twitchy

Here’s a question that’s been bugging me for a couple of days and it relates to Melissa Harris-Perry’s comments about how all children belong to the “community”.

Well this child was alive, it was screaming in fact. Doesn’t that mean that child belonged to the community? That child was as much my child as it was the child of the “mother” who chose to abort.

Why is it that this concept of “community” children only kicks in after they are born? Why is it that the Kermit Gosnell case can’t get media coverage, but a Rutgers basketball coach being fired can get nearly 3 quarters of an hour of coverage on different network news outlets?

Are they too stingy to use their time and money for those children? What’s the difference between that living child being stabbed to death in an abortion clinic  and the teenage girl who was shot in Chicago recently? The one Michelle Obama got so teary eyed over recently.

What’s the difference between the children that Gosnell murdered during late term abortions and the children who died at Sandy Hook?

At what point does “My Body, My Choice” get voided by “the community” that is, presumably, interested in protecting the lives of children?

When are the 100+ children, that witnesses have testified to being “aborted” outside the womb by Gosnell, going to get their 15 minutes of time on the air?

Why is our culture more outraged by a basketball coach yelling at his students than they are by a man cutting the spinal cords of babies with a pair of scissors?

If these children are part of the “community” then it hardly matters that I’m not their mother by blood, I’m their mother by “social contract” and the worst place to be is between a mother and her children.

__________

Before any liberal pro-choicers start to get on my case, remember that this is not about abortion. Gosnell’s crime was, at best, late term abortions, at worst, post birth murder of infants.
