  • In Their Own Words: Pro-Lifers Aren't the Only Ones Who Call Abortion Killing

    Well, that didn't take long. Within hours of the Colorado shootings, abortion-choice advocates were placing blame squarely on the shoulders of pro-lifers. Apparently, we're guilty of "violent" rhetoric; that is, claiming that abortion intentionally kills an innocent human being and that rhetoric is fueling acts of terror against abortion providers. "Do we really think that there are no consequences to claiming that abortion is murder," writes Jessica Valentiin The Guardian. "Can we stop pretending that pro-life lies don't have an effect. We know why this [attack] happened. Clinic workers who put their lives on the line every day know why...

    As of November 23, there had been 2703 shootings which resulted in 440 deaths year-to date in heavily gun-controlled Chicago. That is an increase of approximately 400 shootings over the same time last year. [Snip] Chicago implemented a "violence tax" at suburban Cook County gun stores in April 2013. The tax is gathered on each gun and bullet sold within the county. Then, in 2014-the first full calendar year after the implementation of the tax-the Chicago Tribune reported 434 deaths-a 19 death increase over 2013.

After crushing the baby, the San Bernadino County District Attorney said Ruiz flipped through channels on the television while Scarlett struggled desperately to breathe.

    Execution-style vengeance killing of nine-year old Chicago resident Tyshawn Lee The November 2nd execution-style vengeance killing of nine-year old Chicago resident Tyshawn Lee has been completely ignored by the Black Lives Matter movement. Likewise, his tragic death remains unacknowledged by so-called black “leaders” like the rabble-rousing Al Sharpton or fellow Chicagoan Jesse Jackson. Even the former Chicago community-organizer Barack Obama—and his pouty-faced “bring back our girls” wife Michelle—have interestingly chosen silence despite their polarizing, knee-jerk history of inserting themselves into the political discourse.

According to wikipedia: All firearms in Brazil are required to be registered within the state. The minimum age for ownership is 25,[5] and it is generally illegal to carry a gun outside a residence.[6] Brazil only has 6-8 million legal guns, and they are heavily restricted.

    There were moments when it didn't look like the Mets or Hillary Rodham Clinton would last the summer. This wasn't particularly surprising for Mets fans, who are used to broken hearts. Sure, there was talk of 90 wins back in spring training and the season got off to a fast start. But Mets fans have been there before -- a few injuries, the ominous word "rebuilding," and a trade deadline approaching with no sign of arriving help. Great young pitching, everyone said. Pack it in for 2016. And Clinton: From Yankee-like front-runner dominance, she fell prey to two words that...

    Yes, war is hell, but government without restraint, murder by government, can be more hellish than any combat. At least in combat you have a chance. With guns, we are citizens. Without them, we are subjects. Democide: The murder of unarmed, helpless men, women and children by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder. This does NOT include combatants killed during times of war. In all of history, the most prolific mass murderers are not the Jeffrey Dahmers, Jack the Rippers, movie-theater crazies or insane campus shooters. By far, it is government, much more common than war. Prior to...

    Technology has made life immeasurably better. We now have the sum total of human knowledge in our pockets and at our fingertips. This connectivity has made communication much easier we can now reach anyone at just about any time. Ironically, the largest impediment to human-to-human communication is not the technological barriers that have been erected, but we humans ourselves. There was a time, or so Im told, when a handshake or someones word was enough. Communication was unambiguous. A deal was a deal. Leave it to people to screw up that simple societal bargain. You can Google just about...
