The Real War On Women

February 21, 2013 by  

The Real War On Women
PHOTOS.COM

To hear the Democrats and their flacks in the kneepad media (hat tip: Brad Thor) tell it, the conservative movement is pressing a battle against the fairer sex with all the ferocity of an islamofascist who just caught sight of a woman who’s showing too much ankle outdoors. With the corporate media horde squawking the “war on women” slogan like meth-addled parakeets, one would think we should have armor-plated Mom’s Volvo, lest a roving band of glowering white men wearing Brooks Brothers ties tries to take a shot at her on her way to bridge club.

The “war on women” meme might not be borne out by actual events (unless I missed a rash of guys named “Chip” storming the cosmetics counter at Neiman Marcus), but it is perfect for the intellectual heavyweights Democrats count on to repeat it ad nauseam. “War on women” is short, it has rhythm and it fits perfectly on a bumper sticker. It’s tailor-made for the cowering liberal masses whose fear feeds the Democrat ideological machine. And it in no way hints at the reality that “war on women” translates from the original liberalese to mean “opposes late-term, third-trimester abortions.”

Casting aside the logical fallacy of “war on women” as a phrase, consider what life might be like if it were real. People could get away with virtually anything. The President might pay his women staffers 80 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts. Political party mouthpieces might call female politicians “c*nt” and “dumb tw*t.” People might depict female diplomats as racist caricatures. Political blogs might even attack female politicians’ children and mock their infirmities. Politically motivated mass hate groups might take to raping women at their borderline riots, and the male-dominated media might ignore it completely. Media blowholes might even take to calling their female ideological opponents “slut” or my personal favorite “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”

Indeed, the safety of our precious children could hardly be guaranteed in such a gender-war-torn environment. Hopefully, they’d be well-informed by their parents and teachers about the “war on women” well before they had to step onto the battlefield themselves. Certainly, institutes of higher learning could be counted upon to impart the lessons women need to know about self-defense. I can’t imagine any respectable university instructing their female charges to “tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.” Furthermore, it strains credulity to suggest that all of the aforementioned babble might fall out of the face-holes of the same people who oppose allowing women to own firearms for self-defense.

Not only would that kind of hypocrisy be really, really dumb; it would look terrible on a bumper sticker.

    Another excellent commentary Ben.

    • rendarsmith

      Yeah, Ben definitely has a knack for exposing hypocrisy.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Woof! Woof!

      • mark

        But only certain hypocrisy. Ben has zero to say about FOX News’ ludicrous “War on Christmas,” that they tiredly drag out every season like a dead manikin (no, I’m not referring to Mitt Romney). The real war on women is conducted by men in general. After heart disease and cancer, women are most likely to die through the violence inflicted on them by their male partners, boyfriends, husbands. This sick male-on-female physical violence (assaults and rapes can also be included along with homicides) constitutes the real war on women. It is both a U.S. and world-wide phenomena. Millions of men apparently feel they that women are their property and they have an absolute right to beat and kill any woman who leaves or threatens to leave them, who disagrees with them, who does not follow their orders. And hardly anyone ever talks this horrific and tragic war.

      • http://www.facebook.com/darwan.winkler.3 Deerinwater

        Ben’s appeals to like minds ~ which is no boast or claim to fame. ~ You live in a world full of women and still they are a mystery to you. ~ It’s all as “You Say” ~ and for others to accept and go along.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        But how can that be, Mark? haven’t we just been told that “Ben definitely has a knack for exposing hypocrisy.”?

    • eddie47d

      The thing is Phideaux and Rendarsmith he is exposing his own hypocricy and sadly you drink his arsenic laced kool aid on a regular basis. “The same people who oppose allowing women to own firearms for self defense”. That is a 100% lie so the credibility meter has hit rock bottom around here. ( Seems to be a daily occurrence). I have never heard in person or print that a women doesn’t have a right to defend herself or to carry a gun or mace. Other options are suggested all the time even hornets spray and tasers . I have heard many times from both sides of the political spectrum that if anyone carries they better be well trained in usage of that defensive weapon. For those of you who are slow that would be for both men and women. Even Feinstein carries personal protection and is aware of the dangers to women. If a woman sees the need for a handgun I would urge her to hit the firing range to build confidence in its usage. That would help her avoid panic or misuse. Oh yes that is good advice for men too.

      • Carol J

        You need to read more, not just what’s written directly for your ideology. I have been told numerous times during my life that I am incapable of handling a firearm, that women are not emotionally equipped to handle one. Who told me this you ask? Several LEO’s over the years, 2 high school teachers—male of course—when they learned I had joined the Jr.NRA and was improving my aim. There have been others, but I learned finally to ignore their ignorance.

      • phideaux

        “Even Feinstein carries personal protection and is aware of the dangers to women.”

        eddie did your wife beat you an extra time with the stupid hammer today? Feinstein is about as poor an example as you could find. She is opposed to the private ownership of firearms by the American public wonen included (except for herself and a few select others of course).

      • eddie47d

        That’s your version [comment has been edited]! I suppose because you heard it hear it becomes the official version. LOL!

      • phideaux

        Nope eddie not my version her version.

        “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in, I would have done it. “

  • rendarsmith

    Anyone who seriously thinks there is a war on women needs to watch The Talk clip where they covered the Catherine Kieu Becker story, then wonder why those women still have their jobs.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      The only war on women is the war they wage on themselves. With their own hands women take apart their homes, their lives, the men in their lives. Then they bitch and moan that they don’t have what they want.

      • Karolyn

        Sounds like you don’t have a very high opinion of women Nadzieja. As usual, generalizations…

        I second Karolyn. Have your experiences as a woman been so bad that you are somehow embittered? Not very “hopeful” talk from someone named “hope”.

    Duh, “doublebarrel shotguns”. AR-15′s are too hard to handle and why in the world does anyone need 30 bullets to defend themselves? “plugs” = “genius”. And to think that “americans” actually voted for the “sequester puppet” and this “stimulus accountant” who by the way lives in a “secluded wooded area”! Oh, and don’t tell him he’s “blue collar”, he gets pissed about that.

    • Robert Smith

      W#arrior says: “AR-15′s are too hard to handle and why in the world does anyone need 30 bullets to defend themselves? ”

      We have millions of guys who have loads of experience with the AR-15 like weapon in the military. They know how to handle it, and how to make it work effectively.

      Are you saying our trained men and women shouldn’t have their weapon of choice as a civilian?

      • S.C.Murf

        R.S. you DumbA$$. Warrior is talking about what your hero Joe Blow just finished saying yesterday, try to keep pace bud you are falling way behind.

      • eddie47d

        What was wrong with Joe’s advice in avoiding an attack or at least scaring someone away. Too many of you want to shoot first (like some cops) and then ask questions later. Now women in the military can have any darn weapon they want if the circumstances require it. Heck maybe they could shoot a flame thrower up Limbaugh’s posterior and knock him off his anti-women pedestal. LOL!

      • CZ52

        “What was wrong with Joe’s advice in avoiding an attack or at least scaring someone away. ”

        The shear stupidity of it eddie. First he said he advised his wife to go outside then he told her to fire BOTH barrells of her double barrell 12 guage self defense shotgun. Going outside puts her closer to any danger there might be and firing BOTH barrells leaves her effectively defenseless until she can perform a reload.

      • eddie47d

        Shooting off two barrels isn’t good advice but one would be. If you don’t leave the first time I shoot the second one goes right at you.

      • CZ52

        eddie Biden said his instructions to his wife were to go outside and fire BOTH barrels. That makes his remark rather stupid at best.

  • Right Brain Thinker

    Who let the dogs out? Fido is here with his usual mindless “Woof Woof” in support of Crystal’s even more mindless-than-usual commentary. Brad Thor writes some great books—-I’ve just finished Black List, which is a great read for the paranoid “government is going to get us” crowd, but Thor should stick to writing about spies rather than trying to be one.

    Crystal does his usual meander off into La-La land by going back and referencing something Thor said BEFORE the election, something that was part of the Republican last minute strategy to “demoralize O’Bama supporters”. And this differs from what Romney did HOW? A clip that gives more details:

    “Chicago Source Tells Author Brad Thor: Obama Campaign Planning to Proclaim Early Victory to ‘Demoralize Romney Supporters’

    “New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor, based in Chicago, tells TheBlaze that the Obama campaign may be planning to preemptively announce victory in the presidential election based on early voting numbers in an attempt to “demoralize Mitt Romney supporters.”

    “Citing a “very solid source” in Chicago, Thor says the Obama campaign is looking to make it appear to voters that they have “this thing sewed up and are less than 24 hours to victory,” according to his source.

    “While Thor can’t reveal his source, he told TheBlaze multiple times that the source is very reliable”

    Uh-huh. One of them there “very reliable” sources the wingnuts loves so much! I’ve got one too—-the brother-in-law of my neighbor’s uncle’s bookie—-he is a bookie too and I can’t reveal his name but his initials are WAR. Didn’t work for WAR, didn’t work for Romney and the Repugs, didn’t work for Thor, and won’t work for Crystal. It’s more than hypocrisy too—-it’s just more grasping at straws by the sore losers.

    • S.C.Murf

      right brain fart you really do have a very short memory or is it just selective. Your boy Reid (not to long ago) said the exact same thing about a source he couldn’t disclose. Kind of picking and choosing aren’t we? Maybe you should stick to being a village idiot instead of a right brain fart

      up the hill
      airborne

      • Right Brain Thinker

        And Smurfy chips in with a resounding Woof, Woof, WOOF?? Why the question marks on the last WOOF?? Because Smurf is always confused and wants to make sure someone will approve of what he says—-if they do, they will come over with some tail wagging and doggy smiles and sticK their cold noses up his butt.over his “success”.

        I love dogs so I will even reward him for doing what he thinks is the right thing—-he didn’t hurt anyone or destroy anything, so it’s OK to do that. All he did was parrot the usual mindless horsepucky.. Good boy, Smurf, good dog—-come over here and I’ll pat you on the head and even scratch you behind the ears for doing what good doggies do—please their masters (even though I don’t like your masters and think they mistreat you badly).

        Smurfy fails to see, however, that we are talking specifically here about an article written by Ben, who mentioned Brad Thor’s source, and not anything done by Harry Reid—ever, anywhere, at any time. This IS NOT an article on who protects sources, but one that is several degrees of separation from that. You shouldn’t try to connect up EVERYTHING with ANYTHING and NOTHING , Smurf. Bad logic, bad debating technique.

        “Maybe you should stick to being a village idiot instead of a right brain fart”, says Smurf?
        Why can’t I continue to be both, Smurf? They don’t seem to mutually exclusive.

        look up “hill” in the dictionary
        go looking for the hill
        get lost
        ask a woman for directions
        finally find the hill
        try to go up the hill
        fall down
        repeat the last two steps—–try to go up the hill and fall down——repeat endlessly

        (paint your face blue and wear your “I am a Smurf” T-shirt so they’ll know where to send the body)

        Bill say, “We could expect no less from a non productive union parasite living off the efforts of the productive”

        I say, ~ I would expect on less from a braggart blowhard that his old lady can’t get him to carry out the trash. ~

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Deerinwater hasn’t heard? Bill’s old lady threw his sorry behind out mostly just because he IS a “braggart blowhard”—-not taking out the trash and failing to change his underwear or bathe often were just contributing factors. There was also some mention of “parasites” he picked up, but they weren’t “union”—hooking is a right to work profession—-the pimp has all the rights.

        Word on the street is that she has taken up with a rather dark complected young street organizer because he treats her nice, is smart, and is a also a winner, inlike Bill and the people he admires. Good for you, Bill’s old lady!. Forward!

    Best strategy would be to give us specific examples of the media using the term so we can then criticize directly specific individuals and institutions.

    • Paul B.

      It’s really not hard to follow if you pay any attention to left stream media… most of these infamous quotes are courtesy of Liberal heroes Mr. Matthews, O’Donnell and Schultz… the Prime Time line-up on MSNBC. I am surprised you didn’t recognize them as you were probably glued to their newscasts. Others are courtesy of Mr. Maher. Come on, don’t lie that you had no idea who and what was said.

    • Paul B.

      Even WH staffer Anita Dunn complained about the inequities of the WH and how the environment was more like a Frat house than an equal opportunity work environment. These are very leftist people screaming foul as their hypocrisy in word spews from their blow holes.
      If wrong is wrong, then it is wrong regardless of who does it… and the left seems to think it should always get a pass because it “cares,” or is “on the right side of issues.” Be to most, it appears they care more about being the schoolyard bully more than anything else.

    • Paul B.

      Oh and the third trimester abortion issue was just recently explained to us by the left’s next presidential candidate and NY Governor, Mr. Cuomo in a speech just this week where he states that a woman should have the right to have an abortion just about any time, for any reason and it doesn’t even have to be by a doctor. Hmmm… none of these references are hard to find… well for anyone but you I guess.

      • Right Brain Thinker

      “kneepad media (hat tip: Brad Thor)” ~ I guess you need to know the secret hand shake to know what that means.

      “And it in no way hints at the reality that “war on women” translates from the original liberalese to mean “opposes late-term, third-trimester abortions.” What?

      Here’s a good one, “Media blowholes might even take to calling their female ideological opponents “slut” or my personal favorite “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”

      Ben, ~ I don’t think so ~ That word fell out of your head and no other, you brought it into existence when it fell out of your head and you wrote it down.

      Who is the intended victim of Ben’s attack here? ~ clearly the victim is Ben, while I don’t believe it his intentions.

      “Mashed up bags of meat with lipstick” ???? WTF! Your favorite? Where did that come from? ~

      I’m uncertain if this is an attack on women , ~ but I’d say it offers little to make your mother proud Ben.

        Dear Deerinwater,

        You write: “It’s working! i’d like to see your handy work go global.” Already has. In the last 7 days PLD has been read in 145 countries.

        Best wishes,
        Bob

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        WELL, I GUESS Personal Liberty Digest WILL RISE ABOVE ITS “#9-RANKING” FOR FAVORITE AMERICAN-CONSERVATIVE-WEBSITES. [145 Countries ... Impressive, Bob Livingston!].

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Bob Livingston struts a little for us with this statement to deer.

        “You write: “It’s working! i’d like to see your handy work go global.” Already has. In the last 7 days PLD has been read in 145 countries”.

        I won’t deny Bob his strutting, because I have no website at all for anyone to read. Bob has PLD, and SHOULD be proud of it (as misguided as some of his writers may be). I am grateful that Bob so generously allows me to help him maintain the site’s credibility with my comments

        However, CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON misstates the truth when he talks about
        “#9-RANKING” FOR FAVORITE AMERICAN-CONSERVATIVE-WEBSITES” PLD is ranked #9 among LIBERTARIAN websites, and wasn’t even mentioned on Right Wing News’ list of the 50 Top CONSERVATIVE websites. If I recall my Alexa date though, PLD has a 6000+ rank in the U.S. and a world rank of 20,000+, which isn’t too shabby and actually exceeds the rankings of some of the sites that were on the “top 50″ list.

        A contradiction there. Perhaps some “righties” don’t consider Libertarians to be “conservative”?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Right Brain Thinker,”

        I DISAGREE. Personal Liberty Digest IS NINTH ON CONSERVATIVE SITES, WHICH INCLUDES THE GUY [I forgot his name] WHO DISCOVERED, Willie Horton. I BELIEVE, Lew Rockwell [?] IS NUMBER ONE ON THE LIST. I DO NOT THINK PEOPLE CONSIDER Mr. Rockwell [?] AND THE “Willie Horton Discoverer” TO BE LIBERTARIANS.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Good comment, deer. You ask about “kneepad media (hat tip: Brad Thor)”, and say
        “~ I guess you need to know the secret hand shake to know what that means”. Not really. (as an aside, have you ever accessed the “urban dictionary” site?—-knee pad is probably in there)

        I think he means to say with the “kneepad media” that they are on their knees and need to protect them, hence the kneepads. Why are they on their knees? In Ben’s morally deficient mind, I’m sure he means to imply that they are involved in some kind of sexual activity—use your imagination about who is doing what to whom. Typical Ben NON-classy trash, although the fools among us will call it “brilliant sarcasm”.

        (hat tip: Brad Thor) is Ben saying thank you to Thor—tip of the hat—for stealing and misusing Thor’s writings. If Thor is anything like the characters in his novels, he would probably slap the horsepucky out of Benny for even mentioning his name as part of this pile of crap that Ben dares to think of as an “article”. I would if somebody did it to me.

        I have to laugh at the irony of Ben’s using Thor—-some of Thor’s better characters are the “girls” of the Athena Project, a secret unit of beautiful, smart, highly trained and spectacularly lethal special ops troops who are all female. They DO know how to take care of business and would reduce Benny to a sniveling, begging, “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it” for saying that (before they killed him slowly). They would show Benny a thing or two about “the war on women”.

        CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON, you can “disagree” all you want, but that won’t change reality. Cork up the Scotch bottle, put away the cigar so the smoke doesn’t get in your eyes, and let’s try again.

        Here’s an excerpt from our very own Sam Rolley on PLD from last summer—-that’s probably where you got your data.

        Personal Liberty™ Ranked Among Top Libertarian Sites

        July 11, 2012 by Sam Rolley
        Personal Liberty Digest™ was ranked in the top 10 among top Libertarian websites yesterday by Patrick McEwen’s Top Libertarian website.

        Launched in February 2012 by McEwen, an aspiring Libertarian political writer and analyst, Top Libertarian ranks the top websites offering information about Libertarian issues based on unique visitor and page view Web traffic.

        According to Top Libertarian’s analysis of the past three months’ Web traffic data provided by the Alexa Rankings, Personal Liberty Digest™ is in ninth place among top Libertarian sites. And we are in good company.

        Here are the top 10 Libertarian sites for the past three months:

        1.Daily Paul: dailypaul.com
        2.Lew Rockwell: lewrockwell.com
        3.Reason Magazine: reason.com
        4.Ludwig von Mises Institute: mises.org
        5.Ron Paul 2012 Campaign: ronpaul2012.com
        6.Electronic Frontier Foundation: eff.org
        7.Ron Paul Forums: ronpaulforums.com
        8.AntiWar: antiwar.com
        9.Personal Liberty Digest™: personalliberty.com
        10.Marginal Revolution: marginalrevolution.com

        Only three of of these sites also appear on the “top 50 CONSERVATIVE sites” list—-#’s 1, 2, and 4 from the list above—-they are #’s 19, 24, and 33 on the list “top 50 list”. The other seven don’t appear—-what does that tell you?. SOME people seem to think there IS some distinction to be made between “Libertarian” and “Conservative”?

        I guess we’ll have to wait for the Scotch to wear off before you can state this point more clearly “DO NOT THINK PEOPLE CONSIDER Mr. Rockwell [?] AND THE “Willie Horton Discoverer” TO BE LIBERTARIANS”. That makes no sense.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Right Brain Thinker,”

        NO! – I SAW THE LIST ELSEWHERE AND IT IS NOT THE SAME LIST YOU PRESENTED. Floyd Brown WAS ON THE LIST I SAW.

        Paul B. says to jopa “most people readily recognize the sarcasm that Ben uses to expose the hypocrisy of the left”. and “Sorry if your ability to follow is hindered by your ideology that fails to recognize the true purveyors of this “War on Women.” If you had any sense of reality you would probably be able to follow it as well”.

        MOST people? Expose the hypocrisy of the left? Mindless parrot talk, Paul—good sarcasm is more subtle than the crude bludgeons Ben swings, and usually has some “wit” attached. It is not just the unfunny, vicious, mean-spirited, “gutter talk” that we see from Ben here. Paul has a lot of nerve talking about reality when he lost touch with it so long ago as he sucked up all the wing nut horsepucky..

        jopa says: to Paul. “I would have to say the honest majority would agree with me on this one.I like word play also however Ben stretches it a bit too much and he fails to get his point across”. I agree with jopa, but have to laugh at the thought of an “honest majority” on PLD. There are some honest folks here, but they are a distinct minority.

        And the Queen of Mindless Rhetoric, Queeen ALONDRA THE FIRST AND ONLY chips in with “as we can see that “the honest majority” that is “agree with” you “on this one” is only ONE” It’s TWO that agree now, Alondra, and if the others who agreed would care to speak up, it would be many more. They don’t want to waste the time on you, apparently, just as I usually don’t.

        How pitifully pathetic you are, Alondra—-there’s a whole reality out there and you are not part of it.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        THANKS, “Right Brain Thinker.”

      • http://personalliberty Alondra

        christopher allen horton, there is NO ONE on the PLD who is promoting the “FREE self-PUBLICITY” as you do. So WHY are you complaining?
        Your EGO can’t share the “FREE PUBLICITY” with no one?
        It just once again confirms your narcissistic “self-importance”

        P.S. Share your “love” with homosexuals. I am NOT one of them.

      • Right Brain Thinker

        No thanks necessary, CAH, I support truth and fight ignorance wherever I find them. When you speak truth, I will be with you.

        Alondra is so deluded that she is usually not worth paying much attention to. I try not to do so very often—–there are some among the deluded on PLD who are way less deluded than Alondra, and that’s where I spend my time—-I will occasionally succumb to her utter lunacy and spend some words on setting her straight—-a hopeless task..

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Alondra,”

        I AM REPLYING BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO GET THE WRONG IDEA. WHENEVER I REGISTER TO PARTICIPATE ON A WEBSITE, I ALWAYS USE MY NAME. I THINK ADULTS WHO USE FIRST NAMES ONLY, OR, NICKNAMES ARE SAYING THEY CAN NOT STAND BY WHAT THEY TYPE. IF A PERSON THINKS AN “OFF-COLOR” COMMENT MAY PREVENT HER/HIM FROM GETTING A JOB, ETC.,IN THE FUTURE, THEN THAT PERSON SHOULD AVOID ONLINE DISCUSSION.

        “Alondra,” I THINK YOU HAVE SEEN MY COMMENT TO YOU IN ANOTHER THREAD. I WAS TRYING TO GIVE YOU “A HEADS-UP,” SINCE YOU ARE ASKING PEOPLE TO SIGN A POTENTIALLY-VOLITILE PETITION. I AM SORRY FOR TRYING TO HELP – NO MORE!

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “jopa” – I AGREE. Ben Crystal UTILIZED “LOFTY” LANGUAGE WHICH “BOGGLED-DOWN” HIS TOPIC INTO A VAGUE HEAP.

    The real war on women is the lack of opportunity due to the lefts failed economic policies. When there is less opportunity, then there are more dogs fighting for fewer bones. If you want to help the independent women get ahead, then create a economy that offers opportunities for all

    • eddie47d

      So true yet is that comparable to the failed economy that the right gave us or is that a different kind of unemployment?

  • alicia

    What are you saying?

    • Right Brain Thinker

      IMO, he is showing us all that he is a mindless, sexist, racist pig beyond compare.

      I may be wrong, because he’s not very good with the written language and hard to follow, but that’s my take.

  • Rodney Jones

    There is no war on women but however you people have waged war on your innocent unborn Children. A women’s right to choose is like giving Barak Obama the right to change our constitution, its murder any way you look at it,. Planned Parenthood gives out low dose birth control pills and cheep and or defective condoms to our youth so they will become pregnant and then who are they going to turn to ???? Planned Parenthood who’s so called councilors will convince them to get an abortion. Abortion sugar coated is murder for Profit. Do any of you liberals out there ever heard of or had a partial birth abortion ??????? I will tell you how they do a partial birth abortion. The mother has her labor induced and then once she is in labor the doctor pulls the baby our feet first and while the head is still partially inside the mother the doctor takes a needle and sticks it into the child’s brain and then he takes a rod and sticks it into the brain and then the child goes limp and then he dies. Is this the right that you liberals are fighting for. What kind of mind do you have to have in order to allow this to happen to your child who you are supposed to protect and care for. This Child is counting on you to protect it not to murder it cause you are either to selfish and focused on your self. I really do not care what your situation is you have no right to murder your child.. When you claim you have the right to abortion you are saying to your child that i don’t care about you, That i think more of my own life and my own self than i do you and because i give life to you i am going to destroy you. This is evil to the ninth degree.. Murder is murder anyway you look at it. How can you Liberal’s live with yourself after you have had a abortion ???????? I feel compelled to tell you how and why abortion got started in the first place. Margaret Sanger started Planned Parenthood, but in the beginning it was just call the “Abortion Clinic” she started this because she believe in a superior white race and wanted the blacks and anyone who wasn’t white to be wiped off the face of the earth. She placed the abortion clinics in the black neighbor hoods in order to achieve her goal. She was a member of the KKK and spoke frequently at there rallies. She is the one who gave Hitler the idea of a superior white race………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the person that you believe in and support. May God forgive you and show you mercy, the mercy that you didn’t afford to your own child I pray that God opens your eyes to the evils of Abortion.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “Rodney Jones,”

      YOU SAY, Margaret Sanger PLACED ABORTION CLINICS IN NEGRO NEIGHBORHOODS – I HAVE NEVER HEARD T-H-A-T BEFORE. “Mr. Jones,” YOU ALSO SAY Ms. Sanger GAVE Adolf Hitler THE IDEA OF, White Supremacy – AGAIN, I HAVE NEVER HEARD T-H-A-T BEFORE. HMN …

  • MD spouse

    You’re right – it’s not a war on the weak, unimaginative creatures whose worlds extend no further than their scrapbooks and their husband’s sock drawers. Those ladies are tailor- made to thrive under your ‘care’. It’s easy to love and ‘honor’ a woman when she’s been conditioned from birth to believe that her self-worth is completely bound up in her ability and willingness to make your wants her wants, while having no knowledge of her own innate ability to defend and care for herself. It’s much more challenging to honor someone when having a relationship means coming to terms with a creature who looks you in the eye as an equal.

    It’s not unlike the challenge of coming to terms with a saddle horse versus a wild horse. Men with lesser and more self-centered expectations in a relationship use and praise the saddle horse. (OK – this is a metaphor for you concrete thinkers out there.) The saddle horse is ‘worthy’ because it’s been trained to not challenge, and to make the rider look good. The saddle horse is valued and praised because it’s cooperative and easy. It accepts living within the pre-determined confines of the paddock and has turned over to the farmer the functions of feeding, grooming and protecting it. The saddle horse also appreciates routine, safety and boundaries in place of the risks and challenges of self-management. The wild horse, on the other hand, is considered ‘vermin’ and exterminated by the men (and women) for whom challenge is seen as an evil. The wild horse is ‘bad’ because it prefers living a life of its own to being useful in the eyes of its self-declared superiors. The wild horse also doesn’t naturally accept bit and saddle, and requires a potential rider to stretch his boundaries of patience and understanding to climb aboard. This is unacceptable to those who value control and dominion over cooperation. For the men with greater expectations of themselves and their relationships, however, the wild horse is the more appropriate match. A man who values things like education, autonomy, self-discovery, curiosity and growth doesn’t care much for a horse that’s lost when it finds itself beyond the paddock or the well-trodden path. The above-average man also enjoys the inherent challenge of learning how to ride. The wild horse doesn’t accept average riders and this, more than anything, is what angers lesser men (and women), because it holds a mirror to their narrow mediocrity.

    While the warm security of the locked barn and well-stocked paddock may briefly look attractive to the wild horse on a cold, snowy night when pickings are lean, time spent in confinement with a bit in the mouth in exchange for being provided what one has the heart to obtain for oneself quickly becomes boring and degrading. On the other hand, a life spent figuring out how to best the harsh realities of the wild, holds little appeal for those of more modest temperaments.

    In the end, there’s no one ‘right’ horse. We need various types of horses for various levels of riders. What is of value depends upon perspective. However, the underlying commonality is that each woman must be allowed to decide to decide for herself which type of horse she truly is. It’s not the perrogative of the farmer to decide for her.

    I would be outraged ,as a women, of a
    Government that called me defensless, ignorant and vulnerable.Remember when being raped – spit on them!

  • visitor from another planet

    A friend told me about this website and suggested a visit to learn what certain segments of the population are “thinking”. It was most educational. The level of venom and blind, willful hatred is astonishing. This seems to result from perceptions about an imagined universe that has no more reality than a pulp science fiction novel… and I thought the Scientologists were out there. Some commentators like “Alondra”, “ridge Runner”, et alt. base their vituperous rantings on a non-existent imaginary world. Obama is more an Eisenhower Republican than he is a Communist bent on subjecting the US to sharia law.

    As for toad faced Ben Crystal… almost clever, but he is lost in his own self congratulatory smugness.

    The founding fathers were the ultimate progressives of their day and the Constitution is a wonderful, living example of cooperation between individuals with widely divergent opinions seeking the best for the greatest number of people. The right wing of today is like the Tories of the Revolution or the English owners of Scottish mines who believed that they owned the miners and their children like Medieval serfs.

    We are at a time in history when we must look for common ground to move our country forward. We must face reality about the impact of technology, scientific discovery, and cultural changes. We are Americans all and there are many ways to love our wonderful country. The founding fathers believed that there was room for all.

    God bless America.

    • Right Brain Thinker

      God bless America, indeed! Perhaps God SAVE America would be more fitting?

      Before you return to your planet, visitor, carefully inspect every nook and cranny of your ship to make sure you haven’t got any human stowaways. Wherever you’re from, it sounds like you don’t need any humans there—–certainly not the “venomous and willful haters” you refer to. They are going to be the death of this planet—-don’t let them infect yours.

      • visitor from another planet

        I will return happily. May you have as happy a life as possible using half your cerebellum.

        Would using half a brain make one a half wit?

      • Right Brain Thinker

        Visitor asks, “Would using half a brain make one a half wit?”

        Normally the answer would be yes, but on this site using only one half of one’s brain makes one very close to being “the smartest kid on the block”. And that would be the “open” side, of course, as opposed to the “closed” side that so many PLD-ers pretend they are “thinking” with.

        Live long and prosper!

    • http://www.stanleyfasteners.com Rick Stanley

      This reply is to “visitor from another planet”. Yep, you sound like a visitor from another planet. You are not an American and you do not understand the founders, or the founding documents, ie. the Constitution. So…you come from planet “progressive liberal” and you want to enslave Americans and steal their rights all in the name of all that gibberish you were speaking of. Here in Colorado, we call your kind CRIMINALS who want to STEAL our rights under the guise of your gibberish. We don’t want your kind. Go back to your planet. Leave us alone.

  • jopa

    I just checked to see how many countries there are in the world and there are 196.Now it makes me wonder why the PLD is only read in 145 countries.If you have a computer you should be able to access the PLD site or anything else on the web anywhere in the world.

    • Right Brain Thinker

      Give them time, jopa. Gaining enlightenment shouldn’t be rushed.

      (Of course, maybe there are just 51 countries where the inhabitants have better things to do with their time?)
