Don't forget the Wilmington, NC coup of 1912, wherein whites threw out all the elected black officials.

[quote][b]keepitsimple[/b] - Prosecutors described Gosnell's employees as nearly as desperate as the patients. Some had little or no medical training, and at least one was a teenager still in high school. One woman needed the work to support her children after her husband's murder
If they knew of the horrors going on in this crap hole they should have spoken up the first time they were made aware of it. They're all guilty.
Oh, and you have always blown the whistle whenever you see wrong doing on the job...No problem risking your income for a moral stand...How commendable.

[quote][b]armamentalist[/b] - This is the face of abortion; and it is the face of EVERY SINGLE "pro-choice" politician; every single person who is "personally pro life, BUT..." and every single person who insists that abortion is not the killing of a living human being.
This doctor birthed live babies in failed abortions, and then killed them by snipping their necks - as they moved around, and cried. One even was delivered into a toilet and swam around before he was "snipped." THIS is the face of abortion.
How can it be lawful for a physician to kill a baby inside the womb, when it is first degree murder to kill that baby OUTSIDE the womb?
These are the words of religious right zealotry that must be marginalized in America...

@kayron4: Thank you for reinforcing the right wing idiocy my post was describing.
How about all the right wing fools stumping for fetuses help us lefties out with this little mass murder problem involving already born people we have in America, instead of stupidly continuing to stump for their right to be their own personal vigilante while stumping for controlling every uterus in America...Hmm?posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 16:21
@Ben Had: President Obama's first election was vengeance for Reagan.

[quote][b]avenger[/b] - What about unarmed self defense? None of you can't protect yourselves without a firearm? How manly. [/quote]
A lot of them can't. Pathetic, to say the least.
The issue is deeper...the irony more reeking...
These right wing gun-toters are, by and large, anti-choice.
They want to be able to tote a gun and blow away whomever they deem necessary; while forcing women and girls to carry against their will.
In other words, uncontrolled guns and controlled wombs.
This epitomizes the right wing perversion to have hold of both sides of the circle of life...life is to be protected until some right wing gun toter deems it to be blown away.
Thank Zeus we Progressives are continuing to politically marginalize these freakazoids...posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 10:14

I simply do not believe they were undetected.
I think they were tolerated, since the engagement plan for those guards is very probably to shoot on sight. Avoiding sighting them is the way to avoid shooting them.posted @ Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 23:23

[quote][b]armamentalist[/b] - In other news, Joe-Joe does not want people of faith arguing that banning abortion is the moral thing to do, because we have to keep religion to ourselves and not impose our beliefs on anyone else.

And, heeeeeere we go again...In previous drawings, Hickory Street is just a sidewalk.
Now, we have the Hickory Street Extension being proposed as a walkway/plaza route to the multimodal transportation center.
The multimodal transportation plan approved by the Federal DOT specifies that Hickory Street be a throughway traffic street between Broad and Oconee Streets.
Doing this as the plan requires, with Hickory as a throughway, will reduce the size of those parking decks. Selig is getting there, but slowly.
Stay tuned...posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 16:15

[quote][b]melmarino[/b] - @Anonymous Dude: Yeah, brother, I think we all do. I have to mellow out or I'm gonna have a stroke before I'm 50. There is no 12 step program for thinking everything is life or death.
You're right. It's a one step program.
It involves charging into suppressing fire; with arms open for a hug.
Charging into supressing fire is easy when one is firing back and doing it for the government.
That arms open thing; I haven't got that down yet.posted @ Sunday, April 28, 2013 - 14:00

James, you leave sooooo much out here as to elitist destruction of the People of Hope project.
For example, the skinflint award of $500 by our neo-Confederate Superior Court judge for the displacement of all those residents.
As long as we are stupid enough to allow investor financial freedom to trump all other freedom, this sort of crap will go on.
Property rights have to be restricted to avoid this sort of displacement.
Sure, the whole Garden Springs displacement was "legal".
Was it lawful? Only in the minds of azzholes.posted @ Sunday, April 28, 2013 - 10:18

You have obviously never watched a Daddy mourn the death of his murdered baby at the hands of an abortionist in collusion with a hormonal woman making murderous decisions to kill!
Abortion doesn't make a woman unpregnant! It makes her the mother of a dead baby! The same applies to Daddies!

I think it is a bad idea to have unprotected sex and then shirk your responsibility by taking the life of a human being. [/quote]
I think it is a bad idea to lose track of recreational vs. procreational sex.
The ONLY conservative woman I evah dated had this problem.
She taught it to her daughter, and now peramblates numerous surprises; and has to arm herself against the outraged daughter who had to carry against her will.
A pathetic situation that could have been avoided by that woman not forcing her morality on another woman...This is something conservatives fail to understand; and will continue to lose political power in America for it.posted @ Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 18:13
