Democrat Dream Team 2020 … from Rico

Unidentified sources (take that MSM) have leaked a potential Democrat (C) “Dream Team” for their 2020 campaign to destroy America.
Yeah, Bernie the Marxist and Faucahontas sounds about as far Left as they could go. I can ‘see’ Louie Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam as Attorney General from there, too…but there are SecDef, SecState, and many other positions to fill as well.

Most of these alternative arrangements, so-called, arise out of the ruins of marriages, not as an improvement of old fashioned marriage.

Washington Post Editor Advocates Eugenics Claiming It’s Her Right to Kill Babies With Down Syndrome

Washington Post deputy editorial page editor, Ruth Marcus, penned an op-ed yesterday defending the “right” to selectively kill babies inside the mother’s womb who have been diagnosed with Down syndrome. The piece is filled superfluous nonsense that matters neither here, nor there in the main point of her argument. Marcus is not defending killing babies due to perceived disabilities, but rather asserting her belief that a woman should be able to kill the baby inside her womb at anytime and for whatever reason, without question.

“There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable — and wrong,” Marcus starts off.

She then goes on to say that it’s a difficult subject to write about because “there are so many parents who have — and cherish — a child with Down syndrome.”

Then, rather perversely, Marcus pauses to mention how cute the new Gerber baby is. “Many people with Down syndrome live happy and fulfilled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute.” [snip]

“I’m going to be blunt here: That was not the child I wanted. That was not the choice I would have made. You can call me selfish, or worse, but I am in good company. The evidence is clear that most women confronted with the same unhappy alternative would make the same decision,” Marcus states.

But, really none of that matters. To her, it is not about Down syndrome. It is 100% about the desires and wants of the mother, irregardless of the child she carries.

“Which brings us to the Supreme Court. North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana and Louisiana passed legislation to prohibit doctors from performing abortions if the sole reason is because of a diagnosis of Down syndrome; Utah’s legislature is debating such a bill.”

“These laws are flatly inconsistent with the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling, reaffirmed in 1992, that “it is a constitutional liberty of the woman to have some freedom to terminate her pregnancy.” Of the woman. As U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt concluded in striking down the Indiana law in September, the high court’s determination “leaves no room for the state to examine, let alone pro­hibit, the basis or bases upon which a woman makes her choice.”

“Technological advances in prenatal testing pose difficult moral choices about what, if any, genetic anomaly or defect justifies an abortion. Nearsightedness? Being short? There are creepy, eugenic aspects of the new technology that call for vigorous public debate,” writes Ruth, alluding to the fact that it possible that it is wrong for a mother to kill her offspring simply because the child could have traits that she does not want. [snip]

Under that logic, abortion should be available from conception until the time of birth. And, it should be perfectly acceptable for a mother to practice eugenics by carefully choosing which child of desired traits she allows to live and which she kills. Marcus, writing for a mainstream paper such as the Washington Post, highlights the extremism that pro-abortion individuals have taken their message. For conservatives, “in the end,” the argument is not about what kind of life a Down syndrome baby may lead, it is about at what point will society stop allowing the murder of innocents simply because the mother does not want their child.

Let us posit for the moment it is her right to terminate the pregnancy because of the fetus having a trait unwanted. Suppose that testing proved the fetus has a genetic deformity that will cause voting Democrat, homosexuality, being a Snowflake, tendencies toward Liberalism, cross dressing, or fey flower arranging. All undesirable traits, are they not?



Biased Agendas

Democrat Control, NOT Gun Control…. from Rico

Does anyone even remember all the way back to 2017 when a Democrat fired 70 rounds at GOP Congressman who were practicing softball?
– Yeah, the mass shooting where Rep Steve Scalise (R) nearly died and four others (also R) were wounded?

Yeah, that one.
– Where were the Democrats and the MSM on that one? No calls for “gun control” but more than a few snickers and jokes from them.

It’s worth giving some thought to while being abused by “progressives” endlessly pursuing their goal of gutting the Second Amendment.
– What is needed is “Democrat control” not “gun control”…
