Planned Parenthood, another video released - #waronwomen #waronbabies

The Center for Medical Progress released another Planned Parenthood video today. It once again features Holly O’Donnell, a former technician for StemExpress, one of the buyers of baby parts from Planned Parenthood. The video consists mostly of Miss O’Donnell describing an incident in which a baby’s heart was still beating, and she was instructed to cut through the baby’s face so that his brain–the baby was a boy–could be removed for sale. It is utterly appalling.

The Times tries to keep alive the fiction that there is some doubt about what the videos show. The videos do not “purport” to show PP officials negotiating prices for aborted babies’ body parts. They show PP officials negotiating prices for aborted babies’ body parts. They show a lot more than that, too.

Awful places to work...

I found this story via Instapundit and all I can say is it constantly astounds me how the NYT can stay in business if this is the quality of their "journalism".

I have since seen some "snippets" on the TV news as well. All of these stories seem to be going on and on about how AWFUL it is to work at Amazon.

What NONE of these stories seems to be discussing is that in America, you are actually free to leave a job if you don't like it. Yes! You can leave! Really! You are NOT physically chained to your desk! If the conditions at the place you currently work are so horrible and awful and degrading, you can actually quit!

The people that CHOOSE to work at Amazon do so for a combination of reasons, such as:

  1. The pay may be REALLY, REALLY good compared to what they could get somewhere else.
  2. The prestige associated with being able to say that yes, you work for Amazon.
  3. The job may be closer to their home than other options.
  4. The benefits may be better than what they could get elsewhere.
  5. The experience they are gaining may be more valuable in the future and better for their career.
  6. Lots more stuff that no one knows except for each individual person working there.
The point is, these people have CHOSEN to work there, They are not KEPT there. You know, free will and all that.

The other thing conspicuously missing from any of this coverage is (and let us say for arguments sake that they are "trapped" in these awful jobs) why? Why are they "stuck" there if it is so bad? Could it be that the economy [for the last 6 years] has been in the crapper? That more people have just dropped out of the work force due to an inability to locate a job than people have found jobs? That is the super big, super secret mystery! Why oh why are people taking jobs and keeping jobs they don't like? Maybe it could possibly be because the Obama economy has done just about anything and everything it can to crush job creation and drive up the cost of each job to the point that far fewer are being made available than could be?

Nah, that can't possibly be it cause if it was, the crack "journalists" in the MSM would be all over it just like they could not get enough of how awful the economy was, awful gas prices were, awful savings interest was, how stagnant wages were, when a Republican was in the White House (even when it wasn't so)...

City of Huntington Park, CA adds two illegal immigrants to its city commissions

Doing jobs that Americans won't do?

In addition to allowing illegal immigrants access to driver’s licenses and the state’s Obamacare exchange, now Huntington Park has given them an opportunity to actually govern legal American citizens.

These appointments, made by Councilman Jhonny Pineda, were achieved by getting around federal requirements for citizenship, as the young men are serving voluntarily and are not receiving any pay. However, not all Huntington Park residents are embracing the appointments.

Wow, just wow...

#blacklivessometimesmatter

Apparently the #blacklivesmatter folks are a bit selective, based on current evidence and not all black lives actually matter so much.

For example:

  • Black lives matter when Bernie Sanders tries to talk.
  • Black lives don't matter so much when Hillary talks.


  • Black lives matter when black men (justified or not) are shot by the Police.
  • Black lives don't matter so much when blacks are killed by other blacks (which happens significantly more often - a black man is much more likely to be killed by another black person than by anyone else, police included).


  • Black lives matter when someone dares to point out that really "all lives matter".
  • Black lives don't matter so much when black women abort their unborn babies (which happens at a disproportionate rate as compared to other ethnic groups).

Another interesting point is that the black lives matters group gets funding from that old, european white guy George Soros. So maybe some of the concern about which specific black lives matter depends on which ones George thinks matter?

Based on this maybe they should change their hashtag to #blacklivessometimesmatter
