Klavan has a gentle rant I wish I'd written

  • Democrat behavior toward women seems hopelessly inconsistent to me.

    If they wanted President Obama to be a decent president, they wouldn't have let Hillary get anywhere close to the White House, let alone be his Secretary of State, a top cabinet position. She was so ridiculously unqualified, and performed accordingly. Now they're championing her for 2016. My mother said that Hillary should be required to have a mental competency test first, after that fall and concussion, at 70 years of age.

    Regarding Anthony

    • Indeed.
    • She was so ridiculously unqualified, and performed accordingly.

      Oh, right! Let's see YOU sell 60 billion dollars worth of heavy weaponry to a single country. This is business, and in that context, the woman deserves the highest award possible, right after Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, Wells Fargo, HSBC, the zetas and the gulf cartels....

  • You figure out what should be done with it, how, and for whom.

    • And all of the human trafficking victims say: "Really?"
      I'm supposed to wallow in shame & humiliation over accusations made by our domestic feminazis, who ain't got peep #1 to say about foreign abuses underway. Really.

        Or maybe you can, if you wish to change fact or context to suit your ideology.

        In fact, your PJ media article seeks to control women's behavior through shaming and humiliation - but is more aligned with the Taliban, and control of women, rather than the individual autonomy of conscience fami

  • Sure, the democratic party was the favorite of slave owners, back when slavery was still legal. But that was before the GOP and the DNC effectively flipped positions sometime before FDR. Now the people who are arguing in favor of the modern equivalent of slavery are 100% from the GOP, so it makes no sense to associate someone else with it.

    However the fact that you are trying to claim that making abortion illegal - and hence inaccessible to those without the wealth to travel to someplace where it is le
    • No, the flip started in '64 when all the old dixiecrats turned republican after Johnson signed a pact with the devil. The process was complete about the time of Reagan's election. But the democratic party, despite the Obama thing, is still the party of George Wallace, Robert Byrd, and Joe Lieberman. And it was Eisenhower (you know who he was, right? He was the guy who 'invented the interstate') who sent troops in against a democrat governor to begin school desegregation, a perfect case for federal action wh

    • Oh, and more on topic. To understand the anti-abortion movement, Look no further [usnews.com]... The fear of becoming a minority is very real to some people.

  • To the rest of your silliness there's nothing to add, since you aren't listening anyway. You simply pin on others a caricature of yourself.
