PaulE 755pm - The heartbeat of a healthy baby provides an easy to determine boundary. The difficult part comes from the historical right of parents over the life/death of their children which has scriptural foundations for all three religions 'of the Book'. The state has already taken that right away for post-partum children (see my commentary on its partial restoration). Giving the pregnant mother the legal right to kill her offspring may still be the easiest solution for a society no longer able to afford care for unwanted babies and single mother families. Private charities are the only solution in the future as they were in the past.

BillT 618pm - The individual EU members are showing us the path to the wholesale death of their multiple cultures that comes to pass when their stewards, the current generations, no longer value the lands of their ancestors, and abandon their heritage for a globalist dystopia.
PaulE 416pm - No, as I've explained before, I would like more latitude in the decision to kill the kid.

Yes Mr Tozer, you nailed it. It indeed has been the lamestream that started beating the war drums, and then told eveyone that the thumping was coming from the WH where Team Bolton had built a large bon fire in the middle of the Rose Garden, and, in full warpaint and feathers, were wailing and dancing around it deep into the night. The double dummies across the land lapped it up.

QAnon?? Can someone explain what this has to do with RR, and what Bob Crabb is railing about? I feel kinda left out of something that people say I should be concerned about. What is it?

George Rebane OK, here’s the drill. The Left opposes the recent Alabama law that is being replicated in its essential elements by a growing number of heartland states. The crux of the opposition is preserving the mental health of the... Continue reading

BillT 825am - Spot on topic Mr Tozer. The evidence over the ages about the effects of multi-kulti on social solidarity is overwhelming, and even more so today as travel and migration have made it easier for differing cultures to settle cheek-by-jowl. However, this truth has always been denied by the collectivists of all hues, even as they have had to the most reprehensible uses of force to meld the various ethnicities and cultures in their regimes. As examples, witness the latherings of our local Lefties in these pages over the years when this topic has come up.

AVMan 1133am - Should I still wait for your answer to my 1142am on the markets, or were you just blowing smoke?

AVMan 1133am - It appears you have an insight as to the longer term prospects for the stock market. When viewed within a larger time window, today's pullback can't be the confirmation of any starting large scale trend that would 'screw up anyone's retirement plans'. Please share with us your deeper thoughts about the economy and the markets that gives rise to your dire prognostication.

BillT 845pm - Is that merely politics, or has it crossed the boundary of evil institutionalized by one political party against another?
RobertC 229pm - given the liberty you've taken with your examples, let's accept them for the sake of argument. In these pages these are all categorical references that do not involve or include persons certain. And as such, they are very definitely intended to serve as categorical discriminants, separating this category from that in the support of more general ideas that subsume such categories. I know this is not a readily accessible description for you, but it happens to be the way such categories are used in these debates/discussions. Now when you start using pejoratives that label a particular person, then that's an ad hominem specifically meant to divide the speaker from the person referenced. Example, my calling the FUE a 'lying shithead' should make the point clear that I don't want to be in any class that accepts him and his produce. And I assume his use of such ad hominems has expressed reciprocal feelings. And all that is totally orthogonal to criticizing his politics and ideology. Otherwise good people have been known throughout history to have embraced stupid ideas, or have been ignorant of this or that concept/knowledge domain. Again, given your above remarks, I don't expect you to understand any of this. But perhaps you can somehow identify it as a process through which you recognize the arguments of people like me. Do try to keep separate the notion of directed ad hominems and the expression or critique of ideas.

re JeffP 641am - The FUE continues his reputation as an evil deceiver and a lying sack of shit. HillaryH was not on the MIM board, but a public personage and local politician when I wrote the cited piece criticizing her ideas, and not her as a person which I have never done. Today Ms Hodge is a colleague and a constructive and contributing member of the MIM board, our relationship is very friendly. Yet neither of us would consider it a threat to that relationship were we again to criticize each other's socio-political ideologies, an area of mutual interest which has no place in the conduct of MIM business. And all MIM directors, staff, and volunteers know that. In spite of this very obvious reality, the FUE continues his longstanding and devious tactics to spread hate and discontent, which he does his best in these pages. I have allowed his offal to stand in this comment stream for the simple reason that I took his Union comments to task as one of the points of my above Ruminations commentary. I think the jerk has had his say and shot his wad on the topic - now he's just using his hall pass to spread his usual crap. Enough.
Well dear readers, you have just witnessed the best of what the FUE can deliver. Over the years, wherever he has set pen, he has left such a trail of exchanges, threats, taunts, insults, and an overall bad taste. One can only hope that some day his own blog will reward him enough to stay home and enjoy some much needed attention there.
DonB 347pm - Alinsky.
MichaelA 1147am - Presumably, voting is a civil right granted to American citizens who satisfy certain enfranchisement requirements, and denied to all others not so qualified. How then do you and the ACLU propose to guarantee the sanctity of that civil right?

re Gregory & SO - Correctamundo, and starting next year, not any old gummint photo ID will do. When seeking to, say, fly or enter any federal facility, all Americans will need to present a RealID card, or documents required to obtain a RealID. RealID cards are available from the DMV after you present certain confirming information such as a valid passport or birth certificate, and proof of residency at stated address. You will then be issued a new drivers license with the appropriate RealID markings, or a separate RealID card. I presume our hard Left, ever mindful of human rights and constitutional scholars all, will immediately point out that America's institution of voting must remain immune from such arcane and unconstitutional practices as actually having to prove that you are a franchised voter.
