It’s one thing to say all people of a certain race have more or less privileges. It’s entirely different to say that all people of a certain race think the same way. Please stop assuming a person’s brain function is dictated by their degree of melanin synthesis.

Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 

"Pro-life" is not pro-life. "Pro-life" is pro-birth and anti-choice. They don’t care about the child once it’s out of the womb. I am so sorry for that couple’s loss and the 10 terrible days of suffering that tiny body had to endure. There is nothing any pro-birth/anti-choice person can ever say or do that will make this and actions like this okay. Absolutely nothing.

Your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.

When I Google News search the phrase “religious persecution,” the entire first page is full of stories with the phrase “Christian persecution.” And one story about a guy who apparently believes in a Star Wars religion. Nothing on the first page about Jews being persecuted or executed. Nothing about Muslims being harassed or attacked. Christian persecution and Star Wars. I had more faith in you, Google.

The eternal argument

  • Mom: Billy, please clean up your room.
  • Little Billy: NO!
  • Mom: But Billy, every time one of your friends plays in your room, he trips on your shoes or sits on your toys. Do you want more people to get hurt?
  • Little Billy: That's not the toys' fault, Mom! My friends just get hurt lots because they're not used to having toys around. You should tell their moms to buy them more toys!
  • Mom: Now you know that doesn't make any sense. It's because your room needs to be clean and organized, Billy. Otherwise you can get bugs or boo boos. Clean it up now.
  • Little Billy: What's the point? It's just going to get messy again!
  • Mom: How do I make you understand that it's for your own good?! Go clean it now!
  • ---Okay, now let's look at this same argument elsewhere:
  • Democrats: America, it's time to get guns off the streets.
  • Republicans: NO!
  • Democrats: But Republicans, guns have brought us nothing but tragedy in the hands of civilians. Too many of our friends, our family, our constituents, and even our colleagues have been injured or worse because of our lax gun regulations. Do you want more people to get hurt?
  • Republicans: That's not the guns' fault! If more people had guns, they could fight back the other people who have guns because they'd know how to use them better!
  • Democrats: Now you know that doesn't make any sense. It's because guns serve no purpose to other than to harm, and there's no reason for a civilian in modern times to own one considering that the 2nd Amendment was only applicable prior to us having a national military. Even if there was legal and logical rationale for a civilian to posses a firearm, it is too easy for accidental misfires or lunatic-driven intentional shootings to happen. We need to clean up our gun policies now.
  • Republicans: What's the point? If we ban guns, people are just going to get them illegally!
  • Democrats: How do I make you understand that it's for your own good?! Go fix it now!

And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Why are people so shocked and appalled when the United States tries to play World Police? In this country’s 237 years of official existence, over 200 years have been spent in some sort of war. We have an acceptance of violence not replicated in any other first world nation. For goodness sake, our national anthem is an homage to war.

Now if Canada started bombing people in the name of freedom, that would be news.

Recall:

  • Since 1979, the income of the top 1% has increased by 275% even after taxes and income transfers.
  • Half of all workers in the United States make less than $26,364 a year.

Gee, I wonder why there are all these Occupy Wall Street protests. What could they possibly want?

Waiting for Fox News to say “Obama eats white babies.” Otherwise, this pic is absolutely adorable.

I think all politicians should be paid minimum wage. That way the only people who go out for the jobs are those who really just want to do it for the good of the people.
