I have started a half dozen times to comment on the Kermit Gosnell trial, and usually cannot finish.
The barbarism that hides behind the pleasant names like 'family planning' and "women's health' and even the not-so-vile 'birth control' is enough to make one just stop and stare at the keyboard in a very unproductive way. The shock that some of the photos elicit is perfectly natural, and it stops one cold. Up to full grown babies, murdered with a snipped spinal cord, and snuffed out by people who might otherwise be more sympathetic to PETA. Callous and dangerous conditions that not only serve to murder the unborn, but also have claimed the lives of the confused mothers who were fooled into thinking their act was acceptable; and some who changed their minds held prisoner till the assassin's contract was complete.
How can we tolerate such atrocities, and those agencies which promote them? In Detroit, more than one in three (38%) of pregnancies end with the contract 'hit' on a defenseless baby. Is that even remotely acceptable?
That is all I can say.
Perhaps a couple of others can pick up where I can only leave off.

The BS continues to stack up around the GoverNerd without it being challenged by so-called republicans in Lansing.
Gov. Rick Snyder has appointed Fred Walcott, of Allendale, to the Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Sounds benign enough, right? And, it is until one finds out that Fred Walcott has lined his pockets with $934,078 of our tax dollars for his private profit. It's just a got-damn shame that a guy trying to make a living without sponging off of taxpayers is greeted by State Police/DNR/Federal agent jackboots just to peacefully have his day in court while being stifled by the Attorney General's Office.
OK, Senate nancy boys, what are you going to do here?

Mark Baker sums it up.
As a part of the process (ginned up by the big farming interests) Michigan government has used to take out the small farmer who cannot pay the protection money politicians require, the end is nigh. This particular issue is a tragedy, but not at all surprising as Agenda 21 sets in, and favored producers are enriched as a result.
Its a shame it is closing on a Republican watch.

Washington, D.C.--House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member Rep Tim Walberg released the following statement regarding the Committee's approval of a resolution to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for his refusal to turn over documents related to the Fast & Furious operation:
"Today's vote is part of the Committee's pursuit and my personal commitment to provide the family of fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, a native of Michigan, with answers on why their son was killed by guns in Operation Fast & Furious that had been allowed to "walk" into the hands of criminals. It gives me no excitement or joy, but after a series of accommodations made by the Committee, the Attorney General Holder and the Department of Justice continue to stonewall a Congressional investigation.
Despite being contrary to the Constitution and a century of case law, the Department of Justice thinks they can decide what documents we need and which ones we don't. Attorney General Holder refuses to comply with a Congressional subpoena and won't even give the Committee a list of the documents he is withholding. Frankly, we don't know what we don't know.
Next week, the House will continue its pursuit of the truth by considering this contempt resolution on the House floor. It is my hope that Attorney General Holder and the Obama Administration will realize the gravity of this matter and being complying with the subpoena so that we can bring clarity and justice to the family of Brian Terry."

This particular ad points out the "soft on crime" tendencies of the left. One can argue the value of the war on drugs, but to take away the responsibility of the perps when violence is done is where justice drives off a cliff.
David? They ARE Criminals.
And the Democrats could have had Richard Bernstein. Some of us are still scratching our heads on the decision of Leyton over Bernstein. Something behind the scenes in the Michigan Democrat party process is quite stinky indeed.. Perhaps Richard Bernstein wouldn't tow the line to Brewer and company?
