What I’d like to know is, where are the Occupy people or various unions on this one? Think about it – Planned Parenthood is garnering $200 per abortion. They inflate their operaitonal expenses so that they don’t show any profits, but how much of that revenue do they share with the poor women who use their services? Not one penny. Why aren’t they spreading the wealth to the unfortunate from whom they profit? Planned Parenthood IS the greedy corporation described by Karl Marx in Das Kapital, handsomely profiting off the backs (or utereses) of the poor who have few options available. I think that going forward, every woman who goes to a PP abortion clinic should demand a percentage of what the clinic makes off her fetus. And unions should be demanding equitable pay for the women who make Planned Parenthood’s tissue sales possible. PP should be a left-wing target if left-wingers were at all intellectually honest.

Gee, you mean that she walks the talk? No wonder she didn’t do well in politics!

The respondent is upset because he can only make “…like, 10 bucks an hour.” Whose fault is that? However, what he didn’t say was that he can make more living off government benefits in New York. It wasn’t that long ago that a person would have to make over $30K a year to have a lifestyle equal to that of a welfare recipient in the state of Michigan.
John Stossel "panhandled' a day on O'Reilley's show and made enough where he would have made about $35k tax free if he'd done it 365 days a year. Tried to talk my dead beat son in law into doing at least panhandling, but affter 8 yrs. he's still trying to get on disability!

I agree – if you are of an age, you’ll remember when tabloids such as the National Enquirer believed they could get away with slanderous stories. It took one person (Carol Burnett) to take them apart legally on that point. ELeft wing media should be as fearful of lawsuits as conservatives are of bad press. It keeps both sides honest.

So in your mind (or what passes for it), the victim had it coming? I guess you’re no better than the street rat that killed this guy. And I hope sincerely that in your life what goes around comes around. One less liberal dufus in this world is urban renewal at its best.

I can already see the next 15 years’ worth of content on Al’s blog – “White blogger expresses racist attitudes…” [Fill in the blank} website has been publishing racist remarks ……. No need for updated content, just fill in the website or name of the blogger you disagree with and call it “racist.”

If you actually read the rest of that story, you would realize that the men intent on stoning the prostitute were her johns – in other words, they benefitted from her “sin” and then turned around and called her a cheap whore. Which is a little like our president lecturing Kenya’s leader on treating different groups of people differently. And if you read the responses here, no one is advocating stoning gays. They are merely stating the FACT that this is being done routinely in Muslim-dominated countries, and our Fearless Leader has yet to state to this particular demographic that the practice is wrong. Your alleged scorn is directed in the wrong direction. Why not write the WH and ask why there has been not one word of outrage at the treatment of gays and Christians in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, etc.?

You’re absolutely right about that, and Trump surprises me with his attacks on Republicans. It’s pretty poor salesmanship to trash the competition. It’s your job as a salesman to compare and contrast, and then to close the sale by stating why the buyers would be better off with your product. All Trump is doing is dissuading any crossover voters from choosing one of these Republicans. And if Trump isn’t nominated and goes third-party, that’s a guaranteed win for Hillary.

Guess what – selling pizzas (and building a franchise into a multi-milion dollar operation) makes you infinitely more qualified to run a country than, say, being a race-baiting community organizer who has never completed a job in his life. Look at O-boy’s resume, and you see a record of half-assed efforts that leave everyone who relied on him scrambling and cleaning up the messes he leaves. What we need in the White House after the Obama admin is a janitor.

Or it puts money toward the one person whose extortionist tactics may be the most damaging. So what does that tell you about Hildabeast and the Clinton machine?

You are one educator out of thousands, and definitely a rare one. I have to ask you one thing – how do you survive in the public education environment. I’ve known many former teachers who approached education as you do – that is, with the intention of teaching students how to think and reason, rather than merely spoon feeding them – who were drummed out of the profession by administrators who were terrified of losing federal funding b/c that approach didn’t comply with their interpretation of federal regulations.

It’s not just you, Lake. I’ve described the millennials as the generation of bubble wrap and entitlements. In general, they have been so brainwashed with leftist nonsense that their ability to think and reason has been obliterated. The handful that do “get it” are shunned and punished – especially in public education – for being doers, achievers and still believing in “hard work” or “doing your best” in order to earn something, whether that be a grade or a living.
Where did the policies we were raised on come from?

If the statistics on the increase in OTC abortion means is accurate, Planned Parenthood will be coming out against the sale of these products before long. They’re cutting into that organization’s revenue stream.
Isn’t that the rationale that ISIS uses when they arrange a marriage for a 14 year old girl? She’s fertile, after all, so that makes her an adequate baby-making machine. Just because hormones kick in it doesn’t make the individual a good parent. Even in the animal kingdom, the younger the mother, the less likely she will be to be able to handle raising a litter. As for “sex ed” , haven’t public schools been doing this for 40 years or more? Clearly, that education – as well as other parts of the curriculum – hasn’t done much to educate. You have pregnant teens who can’t read or write, but who know how to apply for welfare benefits.

I doubt that anyone “altruistically” defends the free market,. Everyone benefits from an unrestricted marketplace, so there is no altruism involved in its defense. Kutcher may have investments in Uber, but the citizens of NYC who don’t want to depend on a non-English speaking cabbie who runs up the meter by taking the costliest route, and who hate riding in a stinky, filthy cab also don’t benefit from DiBlasio’s protectionist legislation. Kutcher doesn’t quite understand that cabbies have to pay a tax (medallion fee) that amounts to several thousand dollars, and that is a huge part of NYC’s revenue stream.

The people who defend federal funding of Planned Parenthood are the same people who believed that the government sp;sponsored Tuskeegee syphilis experiments were also “for the greater good.” Same doctors, same mentality, same level of government cover-up. As for PP’s allegation that they don’t “profit from the sale of human tissue, ” that’s more of an accounting fiction than a reality. It’s easy not to profit if you jack up your expenses (read that as salaries for the higher-ups) to eat up any profits. The MD who wanted a Lamborghini probably got her wish.

So, black lives matter, do they? I guess that memo hasn’t gotten to the gang bangers who are shooting down 4 year olds on Chicago’s south side yet. Or the random thugs who are breaking into houses in Indianapolis and beating 80 year old black grandmas half to death. I’ll believe that black lives matter when I see evidence of it in the black communities. And you can “boo” all you want to – it doesn’t change the reality that you kill each other at higher rates than any other demographic.

Ted Cruz bears a resemblance to John Wayne, both in appearance and in his no-nonsense delivery of facts. I haven’t committed to any candidate yet, but the more I hear from Cruz, the more I like him.
Cruz is Catholic, Read below.
I will say it. illegal alien Catholic invaders are destroying the nation from the outside. Catholic traitors are doing treason and destroying the nation from inside.
A third of congress are Catholic. Half call themselves r and half d. All are traitors.
Know the enemy. Half call themselves r and half d.
Know who the enemy REALLY is!
Do something! A third of all elected positions in the USA is held by a Catholic. Half the traitors call themselves r and half d, but all are traitors.
Do not take lightly “god before country” which really means “Vatican before the USA”. This is treason. The team Catholic does not fly a flag.
They hide behind R and D but are really traitors for the Vatican, a foreign, hostile NATION that destroys every nation they invade. Look south see a hundred nations, all with two things in common Catholics, failure.
Do not vote for any Catholic, they bring debt, failure, ignorance, and misery to any nation they invade.
Do not vote for anyone that has a "religion" which trumps the Constitution.
This is not 'bigotry' since the folks that have to be un-elected are whyte, fat, elected traitors.
Vote for any Catholic (all are traitors) and :
YOU are voting for open borders for the endless supply of illegal alien Catholic invaders.

If you’re any kind of a libertarian then you understand the issue here of consent. The “donation” was of tissue from a non-consenting being – that is, the baby that was murdered. This has nothing to do with selling body parts or tissue from a consenting individual, it has to do with aborting babies in order to make a ghoulish profit from selling their tissues. Of course, there is no such animal as a libertarian socialist, because socialism requires relinquishing the individual free will to the dictates of a top-down government, so your entire persona is screwy, as is your thought process. Perhaps your tissues will be sold to cover your outstanding medical expenses when you discover your Obamacare policy won’t cover your latest illness, nor will it allow you to have access to the lifesaving drugs that would take care of your symptoms.
The fetal material belonged to the mother; therefore, the consent is given by the mother, not something that cannot give consent...

So because the group that exposed the truth of Planned Parenthood doesn’t meet your criteria as a “Medical organization,” that somehow alters the reality of what PP is doing on the taxpayers’ dimes? If that is the case, then you should do some research into the authenticity of any “environmental” group, or of the leadership of PETA, or the veracity of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which is a left-wing vegan advocacy group that is all about destroying American agriculture.
It's about their credibility. They are a group of crazies willing to peddle lies, misrepresent situations, and put out heavily edited tape to attempt to shut down a group that is just trying to provide a service. A vital and neccessary one no less. It's a travesty. Trying to represent themselves as a medical advocacy group is a joke, and just further evidence of their complete lack of credibility.
