Also, NBC says that kids are bad for the environment and there should be fewer of them. So, I guess school shootings are a good thing then, yes?

He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.
I don’t know if the allegation is true, and neither do you. But is the ‘New Rules’ are to be applied consistently, Al Franken must be ousted from the Senate even if the charges are false because this misconduct, if it happened or even if it didn’t, is so severe and degrading. And not just because (as Peter H reminds us) Al Franken called for the murder of LGBTs.
“I just don’t like homosexuals. If you ask me, they’re all homosexuals in the Pudding. Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.” The smile became so broad it pushed his eyes shut. He couldn’t stand it any longer.
I am sincerely arguing that we should not force a Democrat to resign for sexually abusing a woman, because I know Republicans never will, and that once the first Democrat goes, R’s next move is finding shady Ds from states with R governors.
The Democrat Media Complex is solidly in Al Franken’s corner. Just as I said they would be.
We were told that the black man shot in Ferguson was holding his hands up to surrender.
We were told that many women had been assaulted by Trump but the fact that they all apparently disappeared after the election makes reasonable people wonder if there was a wolf.
The media can’t stop talking about Russian colluding with Trump even though after months and months of investigation absolutely nothing has been found.
The media also told us that the Duke Lacrosse team raped a woman and Trayvon Martin was an innocent schoolboy shot in cold blood by a trigger happy racist.
The lies the media tell conspicuously favor one point of view over another.
We know that the media ignored a credible claim that Bill Clinton raped a woman.
We know that the media ignores the fact that thousands of blacks are shot each year in Democrat-run cities.
We know that the media has refused to cover the clear evidence that Hillary colluded with Russia when she was secretary of state and that her campaign colluded with the Russians to fake dirt on Trump.
Can we at least be honest enough to admit that — regardless of what the truth of the matter is — the Roy Moore story is a carefully timed hit-piece by a Democrat-run media apparatus intended to take down a Republican candidate before a major election and that the media would never do this to a Democrat?
David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his ex–girlfriend in 2007 and was described as “infatuated” and “clearly obsessed” by the judge in the case.
According to a search of the television database TV Eyes, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given zero on–air coverage to Alcon’s arrest. The networks have also not published any stories about Alcon’s scandal on their websites in the past week.
You don’t have to be a defender of Roy Moore (and I’m not) to admit that the MFM hype some scandals and ignore others based on partisan bias, you just have to be intellectually honest.
Whenever someone like me says, “You know, Government is too big, too expensive, and costs too much and we should take a hard look at the things Government does badly and remove Government from doing those things,” the inevitable response from the Progressive Left is, “So, you want to destroy the Government and live under Somalian warlords.” Because, obviously, there is no middle ground between gigantic Government with armies of bureaucrats invading every aspect of life and living in burned out cities under the control of warlords. (Which is also kind of what you get when you have unrestrained progressive left governance, but I digress.)
But anyway, one thing the progressive left insists on is that the Food and Drug Administration is absolutely essential because without it, corporations would poison our food and drugs because killing and sickening your customer base means only one thing… massive profits. (Progressives… really don’t get how business or economics works.)
But consider this: The FDA is a gigantic Government bureaucracy with monopolistic control over the USA’s supply of medicinal drugs. Here’s the death-count of people who died while waiting for FDA bureaucrats to approve drugs that had already been proven safe and effective.
- 40,000 people died of colo-rectal cancer while the FDA stalled approval of the drug Eloxatin.
- 179,000 people dead from cancer while FDA stalled approval of the drug Erbitux.
- 74,000 patients with terminal cancers died while FDA stalled approval of the drug Revlimid.
- 20,000 patients with kidney cancer while FDA stalled approval of the drugs Nexavar and Sutent
- 360,000 lung and colo-rectal cancer patients died while FDA stalled approval of the drug Avastin.
- 102,000 lung cancer patients died while FDA stalled approval of the drug Tarceva .
- 26,000 patients with non-Hodgkins lymphoma while FDA stalled approval of the drug Bexxar
- 249,000 lung cancer patients died while FDA stalled approval of the drug Alimta
It seems axiomatic that if a person is faced with a terminal illness, they and their physician should have access to any reasonably available treatment. Even if the drug doesn’t work, how would a terminal patient be any worse off for trying it. But the primary mission of any bureaucracy is to grow and perpetuate itself. The FDA doesn’t give a damn about cancer patients; it gives a damn about growing its workforce and its budget. Promptly approving cancer drugs does not achieve that objective.
