Sorry for the rather dry delivery but these doctor guys just don’t do great television. More

Source: Creative Minority Report:Pro-Life Fiorina Outraged When Called Pro-Life Senate candidate Carly Fiorina wants you to know she’s pro-life. But she wants everyone to know that she’s not like really really pro-life. She’s kinda’ OK with life, not totally against it but if someone wanted to be against it she’d be cool with that too. But […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. What Conservatives Could Learn From Lawyers

 

shutterstock_121503352I flirted with a law career for about a semester, but quickly discovered that, while I can comprehend the language used, I cannot tolerate the general lack of common sense. Lawyers, especially prosecutors, do know something, however, that conservatives could really use when it comes to dealing with liberals: when quizzing someone in public, stick to questions whose answers you already know.

That principle would have been extremely useful for Idaho Representative Vito Barbieri. If you haven’t caught the headlines about him, this idiot decided it would be a good idea to ask if a woman could swallow a camera to find out “something” about an unborn child she might be carrying. I apologize for pointing out this stupidity, but it is sadly just one in a long list of stupid things said or asked by conservative men in government hoping to pass legislation that will control what women do with their bodies. Yes, I am using the liberal terminology here for a very good reason. When “stupid” is all that the conservative side has to offer, it should face the liberal ridicule it deserves.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Old Dogs and New Tricks

 

shutterstock_159402392We kids were born to old parents: a mother in her forties, a father in his sixties. Our father had already lived a full life — full in all senses, including tragedy — before we were born. Despite his relative age, Dad long remained healthier than the rest of us. Sure, he worried plenty about dying of a heart attack or cancer. He threatened to have an ulcer whenever something upset him. And he took several drugs to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. But, aside from a yearly bout of man flu, his health remained almost miraculously untroubled, especially compared to the rest of his family’s.

Nonetheless, Dad feared death. I never knew another person who feared death the way Dad did. Perhaps it was because of the tragedies in his past. He worried about life-threatening illness constantly. Yet he could not bear to hear about death. He could not bear to hear family members acknowledge their own (or his) mortality. He especially could not bear to hear anyone he cared about mention that — in some circumstances — it might be better to die than live.

Last year I was having blood drawn from me at the lab by one of the phlebotomists. It’s routine, as I had aortic heart valve replacement surgery in 2010, followed by a pacemaker implantation to keep me alive. “What are you doing for Father’s Day?” she asked me. More

I must say I cringe every time I hear or read the statement “Abortion should be illegal except in cases of rape or incest“. This seems to be the public stance of the pro life movement, but to my thinking is either logically or morally inconsistent. Sarah Palin had it right with her stance, though few others […]
