NY Times on Republican terror groups.

Wow. A politician gets it totally wrong again. Where to start?
Maybe we can’t call it terror but what is positive about her welfare state that replaces fathers with a faceless bureaucracy, destroying the most essential level of government, families.
But then how about the misplaced criticism of Republicans? How horrible of them to deny the right of women to murder children.
Where is the faction that is pro-life? Laughed off the stage.
Baffling it is that Republicans can call themselves pro-life, Democrats can even mention rights. In case there is some confusion here, accepting collateral damage in pre-emptive war does not jibe with “pro-life.” Murdering a child violates the rights of someone least likely to defend himself.

“Hillary Clinton Likens Republican Views on Women to Those of Terror Groups

Hillary Rodham Clinton compared Republican presidential candidates to terrorist groups when it comes to their views on women, arguing that their “extreme” positions are not right for 21st-century America.

At a rally in Ohio on Thursday, Mrs. Clinton scolded Senator Marco Rubio of Florida for his opposition to abortion even in cases of rape or incest. She hit former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida for wanting to defund Planned Parenthood. And she criticized Gov. John Kasich of Ohio for banning public financing of some rape crisis centers.

“Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world. But it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States.”

Calling such policies out of date and out of touch, Mrs. Clinton dared her rivals to face mothers who caught breast cancer early because of screenings and girls who did not get pregnant because of access to contraceptives that were made available through government funding.

Republicans immediately took offense to Mrs. Clinton’s remarks. Amelia Chassé, press secretary for the conservative America Rising PAC, called the comments outrageous and desperate.

Alison Moore, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, said Mrs. Clinton had reached “a new low.”

Mr. Bush added on Twitter that Mrs. Clinton’s priorities are wrong.”

Sam Clovis, insane?

Sam is one of my very favorite public figures. He was campaigning for Rick Perry until yesterday when he took a job with Trump.
Sam has had a strict (in his opinion) focus on the Constitution as a guide for federal policy. In the case of military issues, of course, the Constitution is “just a damn piece of paper.”

The question I would ask Sam, if I were important enough to gain an audience, is do you believe Trump has changed enough to suit your “conservative” standards? Here he is on GW’s invasion of Iraq:

He contributed to Hillary in the past and he now calls that a business deal. He favored universal health care and other leftist policies.

I could vote for Trump on the mere fact he recognized Bush’s war as a stupid evil thing. Maybe that logical and moral thinking will cause him to rethink other issues where he is,uh, lame.

George Will knows baseball stats…

… then turns into a welfare statist with no concept of respect for human life.

Turns out George Will’s only attribute is his knowledge of baseball.

In an August 6 article he reviews a book by Don Winslow about the drug war in Mexico. It details the parallels between it and the Vietnam War, the “advisers”, the choppers, defoliants,assassinations,intelligence failures,and futility. 100,000 Mexican deaths in ten years. 131 journalists, as far as we know. Untold government corruption.

Then he goes on to claim it is all worth it because his beloved nanny state could never control a population free to choose dope over sobriety. Heartless bastard.

Did anyone notice the lack of gangsters shooting Tommy Guns at street corners when the other prohibition ended. Learn from history, George.
