As an aside: has anyone actually ever tried Gorilla Munch cereal? Is it good? Does it keep your jimmies rustle-free?

I've tried it and it does, in fact, keep my jimmies unrustled in a deliciously gluten-free kind of way.

You will be amazed at how unrustled your jimmies will remain after one spoon full of Gorilla Munch.

I must obtain some immediately. Although my jimmies remain gloriously unrustled, I can imagine that the lack of gluten would provide an additional layer of unrustlitude.

After some consultation with my copy of the OED and certain etymologies, I think "unrustiltness" is closer to the linguistical mark.

(the OED app...best app EVER!!)

As a pro-abortion champion, I was curious as to what the even more hardcore post-birth abortion advocates think about parents hitting their kids? Paging fake Lawyer, Esq.

Second post: Anyone following the media blackout on the huge Philly abortion trial?

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinio...olumn/2072577/
Quote:
Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven't heard about these sickening accusations?

It's not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell's former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.

NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, "described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, 'literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body." One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his "snipping" technique to use on infants born alive.

Massof, who, like other witnesses, has himself pleaded guilty to serious crimes, testified "It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place." Here is the headline the Associated Press put on a story about his testimony that he saw 100 babies born and then snipped: "Staffer describes chaos at PA abortion clinic."

"Chaos" isn't really the story here. Butchering babies that were already born and were older than the state's 24-week limit for abortions is the story. There is a reason the late Democratic senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan called this procedure infanticide.

Planned Parenthood recently claimed that the possibility of infants surviving late-term abortions was "highly unusual." The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.

Regardless of such quibbles, about whether Gosnell was killing the infants one second after they left the womb instead of partially inside or completely inside the womb - as in a routine late-term abortion - is merely a matter of geography. That one is murder and the other is a legal procedure is morally irreconcilable.

A Lexis-Nexis search shows none of the news shows on the three major national television networks has mentioned the Gosnell trial in the last three months. The exception is when Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan hijacked a segment on Meet the Press meant to foment outrage over an anti-abortion rights law in some backward red state.

The Washington Post has not published original reporting on this during the trial and The New York Times saw fit to run one original story on A-17 on the trial's first day. They've been silent ever since, despite headline-worthy testimony.

I've been catching up on it today, that's some gruesome stuff. I couldn't imagine having the stomach to work there.

Have I met more than a couple of kids of whom both they and society might benefit from a few well placed whacks on their posterior...you betcha.

However, those circumstances, kids, and their parent(s) are like partial birth abortions....the exception rather than the rule.

This is the amazing thing.. pro-abortion and pro-post-birth-abortion but against capital punishment.. or even spanking your kids. Most will also discuss the horrors of bullying and how violent movies... blah blah blah.

Must be nice to live in this utopia where people should be asked to take no responsibility for themselves but have the ability to dictate how others should live.

So are you generally against spanking?*


*your children

Whether I am for or against it is irrelevant. Similar to abortion, "not my kid, not my choice"

I don't want people to spank their kids. Just as I don't want people having late-term abortions. IMO, that doesn't mean they should not have the choice.

Unlike Chase's theory.
I don't take issue with capital crimes. I don't believe there should be restrictions on so-called "hate-speech". IMO, the restrictions on violence, sexual situations, nudity, and language in movies and television are far to restrictive. By the time a kid is 8 years old, they have probably heard more f-bombs in school and the playground they they would in a Chris Rock stand-up routine, let alone an "R" rated movie. PBS or any other "over-the-air" broadcaster should be able to show I, Claudius in its entirety, unedited. PBS did this in 1976/77 and from the uproar, from mostly conservative circles...the Moral Majority and Jesse Helms being the loudest, you would have thought it was the end of civilization as we know it. You can trace back the conservative attacks on the value of PBS to that event. Before that they were actually supporters of PBS because they did educational programming for adults and kids. Including things like Sesame Street and Reading Rainbow which were actually used to help both kids and illiterate adults learn to read, write and spell. And 40 years ago there was a big adult illiteracy problem in this country.

This is the amazing thing. Pro Lifers care about unborn children but don't give a sh1t about them after they're born.

I am pro choice (to a degree...aka no late term) and fully believe in smacking your kids when they act up. Thats the problem with the youth today, not enough asswhoopin at home. As for the case above, I think the doctor should be charged with first degree murder, and the parents and everyone who assisted the doctor to be charged as an accessory to murder. In my America, they would all be put to death. Disgusting scum like that don't deserve to live.
