TebosTake a Picture: Ink Spots on Ebony

A glimpse into the heart of blackness: “A national coalition of women’s groups called on CBS on Monday to scrap its plan to broadcast an ad during the Super Bowl featuring college football star Tim Tebow and his mother, which critics say is likely to convey an anti-abortion message.”

An anti-abortion message! Horror of horrors!

What happened to that pro-choice position: Abortion is unfortunate, but it’s a necessary female freedom? I thought the vast, vast majority of Americans agreed that it would be preferable if nobody ever got an abortion, but that the disagreement broke down on whether it should be illegal or not. That, at least, is what the pro-choice people want you to believe. “We’re reasonable. Nobody wants to see a fetus get aborted. But it’s the woman’s choice.”

The Tebow commercial story shoots you into the pro-aborts’ real world: they simply don’t want babies. They hate people, and they’d prefer if there were fewer of them.

They are, in a word, anti-life.

Party of Special Interests

I don’t consider myself a red-hot partisan, but this list should get circulated to every Republican blog in cyberspace: Top political donors, 1989 to 2010. Out of the top 14 donors, eleven gave to the Democrats . . . and the other three were non-partisan. You have to get to number 15 before you find a Republican donor.

Hubristic and Proud of It!

Progressives are, by definition, arrogant: They think they have the answers to society’s problems. I’ve always distrusted progressives just for that reason. I mean, we could all use more humility, but progressives scarcely seem to be aware that it’s a virtue. Notwithstanding my low view of the progressive set, I was stunned by this anecdote:

Economist Milton Friedman was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in favor of a national constitutional amendment for a balanced budget. Kennedy argued that a requirement for a balanced budget would restrict the federal government’s power and its ability to spend – thus, he said, Washington’s role in more fairly and equitably distributing wealth, goods and services.

“Senator, socialism hasn’t worked in 6,000 years of recorded history,” explained Friedman. “Why won’t you give up on it?”

Kennedy rose to his feet, according to Nuttle, who attended the hearing, and replied: “It hasn’t worked in 6,000 years of recorded history because it didn’t have me to run it.”

Link.

It’s so stunning, I have a hard believing it’s true. Can anybody else provide verification beyond the facts cited at the link?
