    Republicans seem to be immune from shame.

    …injury to insult…or maybe the other way around.

    That’s because they are not the ones being shamed.

    Politicians make us pay two-fold; policies and money.

    Maybe they think they’ll make her so broke she can’t afford not to have the kid? I wouldn’t put that kind of thinking past them. Insanity knows no boundaries.

    You’re a sensitivity trainer, right?

    @ basshwy’s final post yesterday on executing murderers:

    “Surely it is an infinitely greater penalty to have them live as long as you can possibly make them live – in miserable circumstances in prison.”

    Is that how we make them pay for taking someone’s life—-strip them of their right to liberty but not their right to life?

    That’s uncannily like what we see Texas doing in this strip.They can’t make her pay for having robbed her fetus of its questionable right to life, so they brand her with the scarlet “A” of an abortress (not a word, but in Texas that’s neither here nor there).

    Extremes meet: abortion opponents/death-penalty opponents. What they share in common is their reluctance to define not life but the right to life.

    The only serious attempt I’ve seen to bring these extremes together was by Starrman, the ex-cop who said experience had taught him that deserved capital punishment is “retro-abortion.”

    Pro-lifers have to get over the notion that abortion murders an innocent life. Those opposed in principle to capital punishment have to explain how we can give justice to the murder victim without taking the murderer’s life.

    Pro-lifers are accused of being narrow-minded, and now (according to Clark Kent) sadistic. But the opposite is true. The pro-abortion folks are so intolerant, they can’t even tolerate their own pre-born sons and daughters. Further, they malign the pre-born children, saying they should be killed because they are “unwanted” [a euphemism for being the target of hatred and intolerance] and could have miserable lives and grow up to be criminals. What if this were said about any other group of people—blacks, Filipinos, Poles, Latinos, women, gays: "They are unwanted, so they should be killed because they may lead miserable lives and become criminals. Wouldn’t fly, would it?

    Doonesbury’s abortion-business-customer character expressed hatred toward Rick Perry, inferring that abortionists should kill any pre-born child who might grow up to be like Rick Perry.

    This week, one of you Doonesbury directed a hateful comment at me saying that “unwanted” babies should be aborted “especially if they turn out like you”.

    Dehumanizing is another way to express hatred and intolerance, and to rationalize oppressive behavior. Thus, the pro-aborts try to dehumanize the pre-born children. The Holocaust was rationalized by dehumanizing Jews. Slavery was rationalized by dehumanizing blacks. Have you ever seen a woman give birth to a cat, a dog or a cow? No! The fetus is human. Not canine, not feline, not bovine. Human. The fetus is alive. If the baby’s not alive, then what is being aborted. (Aborted is a synonym for interrupted, terminated or ended, even killed). An abortion terminates, ends, kills, a human life.

    Sadistic? Killing an innocent human life isn’t sadistic? (Yes Palin drome, abortion is the killing of an innocent human life. You need to get over your denial.)

    IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT AN IGNORANT MAN CAN ASK MORE QUESTIONS THAN ALL THE WISE MEN IN THE WORLD CAN ANSWER. THAT BEING SAID, HARLAN ELLISON, A SCIENCE FICTION WRITER HAS STATED THAT ONE IS ONLY INTITLED TO AN INFORMED OPINION. THAT BEING SAID, AS AN IGNORANT MAN, I ASK YOU. HOW CAN ONE HAVE AN INFORMED OPINION IF EVEN COMIC STRIPS ARE CENSORED?

    Indignity is the whole point. It’s not vindictiveness toward women. It’s vindictiveness toward Mommy and Mommy Figures. Mommy says you can’t have the cookie. Mommy Figure Girlfriend or Wife says you can go out drinking with the guys. Daddy has no authority, he says go ask your mother. Your friend says you can’t stay with him because his woman’s kinda funny… The laws are made by petulant vengeful little boys, not real men who have outgrown such selfishness.

    Really? Pray do expand on your theory, I am intrigued. Just for balance, I suspect there are a few Republicans out there, somewhere, who are rational who consider the last 30 yrs of Republican politics to have been a plague on all our houses.

    Gary has finally been consumed with liberal righteousness. He needs to take a long vacation.

    @rmleon

    from the dictionary

    born – existing as a result of birth.

    quit projecting. you ain’t “innocent,” like the life you imagine in other people’s wombs. get your head out of there. a human life is more than the protoplasm from which an unborn protohuman emerges.

    Americans don’t understand that censorship is already rampant: for instance, GT’s readers have never seen him criticize apartheid because he censors himself, knowing which side his bread is buttered on. Instead GT picks targets that, although provoking controversy, don’t offend his paymasters. GT is like George Clooney, who indulges his attention-seeking needs by criticizing Sudan’s government, but who knows he couldn’t survive in show business if he were to criticize apartheid
