Pro-Abortion V-Day: Ray Nagin Offers More of the Usual Pap

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin created another hairy situation last week when he said how he’s helping spread the word about the 10th anniversary of V-Day:

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin says he is “a vagina-friendly Mayor.”

Nagin made the remark while welcoming the author of the Vagina Monlogues, Eve Ensler to the city to promote the “V-Day” celebration in New Orleans next month.

Appearing at the two day event will be Oprah Winfrey, Marisa Tomei, Jane Fonda, Glenn Close, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Hudson, Salma Hayek, Sally Field, Christina Lahti and Faith Hill.

If there’s a benevolent God, at least six of those ten vaginas will be “unavailable for comment.”

As for “V-Day” itself, the stated goal is to help existing organizations end violence against women in all parts of the world. There are statistics on their website about crimes committed against women in categories such as the following:

RAPE
INCEST
BATTERY
FGM
SEX SLAVERY/TRAFFICKING
ABORTION

I actually added that last one. Did it seem out of place, given the list of women who are involved with “V-Day”?

There are about 46 million abortions per year around the world. Assuming a 50/50 ratio (although many countries such as China abort females at far higher rates than males due to one-child laws), that’s 23 million females (and potential future financial supporters of V-Day, nudge-nudge) per year murdered.

Murdered. Not raped, not beaten, not enslaved, not genitally mutilated — but killed — all while many of the liberals who lead this particular cause to “save women’s lives” remain politically active and very vocal in their support for the “right” that slaughters millions upon millions of females each year.

As a matter of fact, in spite of all the information about violence against women around the world that is highlighted on the V-Day website, a site search for “abortion” returns no results. Okay, how about “forced abortion”? Nope, nuttin’.

V-Day: Because women have rights, but only after a certain age. Just ask New Orleans’ vagina-friendly mayor — now with disposable applicator.

NYC’s Homeless Hotline: The 411 on 311 and 911

New York City’s “Department of Homeless Services” reminds you to please dial 3-1-1 if you spot a homeless person.

The DHS has also set up a special number for people who are being robbed by a homeless person and are unsure if they should dial 3-1-1 to report the homeless person, or 9-1-1 to report the robbery — these people are asked to dial 5-1-1 and will placed on hold while the 9-1-1 and 3-1-1 people decide which is the more pressing issue.

Paging Joseph McCarthy

nullKarl Marx is alive, well, and hangin’ ten in California thanks to politicians who take an oath to this country and then spend the rest of their careers trying to destroy it.

The “red menace” is back (did it ever leave?) and is being happily promoted by a particular California state senator.

LGF has the downlow… lowdown… whatever:

California Democratic Sen. Alan Lowenthal has proposed an amendment to the Educational Code that will explicitly allow the promotion of Communism in schools, and also allow groups who want to violently overthrow the US government to meet on public school property.

A PDF of the proposed amendment is here.

Here are some highlights, and I must say, when it comes to grading politicians, Sen. Alan Lowenthal gets high Marx, and gets Marx high:

This bill would also delete provisions regarding a person who intends to use school property on behalf of an organization to deliver a statement, signed under penalty of perjury, that the organization is not a Communist action organization or Communist front organization required to be registered with the Attorney General of the United States or does not, to the best of that person’s knowledge, advocate the overthrow of the government of the United States or of the State of California by force, violence, or other unlawful means.
[…]
This bill would delete provisions that prohibit a teacher giving instruction in a school or on property belonging to an agency included in the public school system from teaching communism with the intent to indoctrinate or to inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism. The bill would also delete provisions that a teacher may be dismissed from employment if he or she teaches communism in that way.
[…]
Under existing law, a public employee is required to answer, under oath, specified questions, including, but not limited to, knowing membership in an organization advocating the forceful or violent overthrow of the government of the United States or of any state. This bill would delete these provisions.

If there get to be many more politicians like Lowenthal, I’m actually happy he’s including amendments such as that last one. Sure, communists could use it, but so could we. Someday that one could really bite the likes of Lowenthal on the ass.

On Sen. Lowenthal’s website, he says, “I want to do everything I can to improve the quality of life and safety of our community.” Up to and including making it easier for communists, Marxists, Anarchists and every other nut case to encourage the violent overthrow the U.S. government, and more difficult for parents to keep their kids from being indoctrinated by leftist wankers. I feel safer already, Senator.

If you’re a sane parent in California, right now you’re saying to yourself, “I think it’s time to home school!” Oh come on, commies are smarter than that. Think again, because they’ve got that covered as well: California court rules home schooling illegal

DeMint Wants to Build DeFence on DeBorder

A press release from Senator Jim DeMint’s website:

Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) introduced the “Complete the Fence Act” that will require the completion of 700 miles of reinforced pedestrian fencing along the nation’s southern border by December 31, 2010. The bill also requires the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to report to Congress by June 2009 on fence construction progress and how it plans to complete the full fence by the 2010 deadline.

DeMint is a much-needed breath of fresh air in the Senate (sorry).

The “Complete the Fence Act” is only expected to receive Democrat support if $100 million of the budget go toward sending Bruce Jenner to Mexico to hold a pole-vaulting seminar.

Democrats, along with Republicans such as John McCain, believe the border fence should be secure, but not unfairly so

The Undouchables: Eliot Mess Tries to Clean Up Chicago, One Baggie at a Time

Rest easy Windy City dwellers, for the streets of Chicago just got a little safer:

Tiny plastic bags used to sell small quantities of heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana and other drugs would be banned in Chicago, under a crackdown advanced Tuesday by a City Council committee.

Violators of the baggie ban will be punished by a $1,500 fine. I repeat: If you’re caught in the city of Chicago with a tiny f*#@*$g baggie, even if it’s empty or holding small screws from a hardware store or whatever, you’ll be fined $1,500. Ah the sweet smell of freedom.

Attempting to get rid of drugs by banning baggies is like addressing the obesity rate by outlawing Whopper wrappers.

Hopefully Chicago doesn’t ban the really big plastic bags — I mean, where would they put all the murder victims who were left defenseless by the Chicago City Council’s innane and counterproductive gun laws?

Michigan Government: What a Gas

nullMichigan’s economy is in the tank, and getting, as the president might say, tankier.

Businesses in the state are fleeing the area like the lactose intolerant after hearing an ice cream truck, and our unemployment rate is so high you’d have to take Doc Brown’s DeLorean back to 1929 (if you could afford enough gas to get the thing up to 88 mph) to find a similar example.

Why is Michigan in the tank? The Great Lake State is a stew of everything businesses hate. It’s heavily unionized, the government is run by buffoons, and the tax schemes are unpredictable and shift as furiously as a biker on a 20-speed riding on Lombard Street.

So when you’re hurting economically, what’s the first thing you should do? That’s right, raise taxes — again. I guess they don’t say our economy is “tanking” for nothing.

Our state government is considering a 9 cents per gallon additional gasoline tax to pay to fix roads that have the look and feel 1944 Berlin sidewalks after a B-17 raid.

Yes, the same bureaucrackheads who have already brought the state to its economic knees want us to pay even more for gas so they can screw up something else. It’s like having a kid at college.

“Dad, can you send $500 so I can buy books?”

“But what did you do with the $500 I sent you for books last week?”

He give you a fancy answer, but you know he bought beer. Michigan government has bought a lot of beer.

Keep in mind that these are many of the same state officials who put a petition on the State of Michigan website calling for a lowering of oil company profits so the price of gas would go down.

What Governor Granholm never mentioned about the “lower oil company profits now!” petition is that the state pension fund had $832 million invested in Exxon-Mobil stock. Essentially, the state was asking state employees to sign a petition to devalue their own pensions. Many of them gladly did just that.

So, this is the kind of intellect we’re up against. But then, we’re trapped here. If they tax gas any higher, we can’t afford to leave. If they don’t raise gas taxes, they won’t fix the roads and the moving vans will be entirely swallowed by potholes.

Of course, there are many people in this state, such as the woman quoted in the story linked above, who don’t mind paying more — missing entirely the larger picture. The number of people such as her has reached critical mass in Michigan, which explains why the same politicians who are the cause of our problems are continually re-elected to fix them.

What’s Einstein’s definition of insanity again?

The ‘Not Ready for Prime Time Media’

It’s no rarity for Saturday Night Live to spoof mainstream media idiocy, but this time the mainstream media was forced to look into a mirror and they actually didn’t like what they saw — for a ‘change’:

Life imitating art or just a coincidence? A study of campaign coverage found the media took a sharper look at Barack Obama the week after “Saturday Night Live” spoofed journalists enthralled by his candidacy.

Here are two skits that brought the MSM to their knees in the past couple of weeks. The funniest thing about them is their lack of over-exaggeration:

Democrats Vote Like The Three Stooges Perform Brain Surgery

As for the primaries on Tuesday night — what is it with Democrats and not being able to vote (allegedly) for any number of reasons?

Hillary cries foul in Texas

Ballot confusion in northern Ohio

Voting “irregularities” in Ohio

Confusion Rampant Over Texas ‘Primacaucus’ Rules

Ohio precincts remain open late because Obama’s people claimed they might run out of ballots even though they hadn’t run out of them by the regular closing time

The only remaining question is how the Dems are going to end up blaming all their incompetence on non-Democrats — which is, after all, the entire modus operandi of the DNC.

Update: Having won Ohio by a large margin, Texas by a slim one, and Rhode Island, Tuesday is being billed as “Hillary’s big night.” Remember though, she only made a net gain of about 29 delagates (here’s a delegate scorecard). She needs blowouts in remaining contests to pull out a win — either that or an FBI file on Obama that’s full of drugs, Boy Scouts and Al Qaeda meetings.

Update II: Hillary has the following on her website:

‘Thou Shalt Not Bogart the Doobage’: Moses High on Drugs, Says Professor

nullBenny Shanon, a professor of cognitive psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, claims that Moses was high on psychedelic drugs on Mount Sinai when he heard God deliver the Ten Commandments.

Let’s see… Honor your father and mother, don’t steal, don’t kill, don’t covet your neighbor’s wife, don’t commit adultery, remember the Sabbath and keep it holy (“Sabbath” refers to Sunday, and not Black Sabbath, I presume), don’t covet (including crashing in) your neighbors house, etc.

No hard drug user I’ve ever known would push principles like that. No mention of hitting God up for 20 bucks at 3 o’clock in the morning? No mention of free love? No mention of snowboarding down Mt. Sinai? No “acacia goggles” (“Hey Mary, are those space pants you’re wearing, ’cause your ass is out of this world”)?

Shanon claims the story of the creation is unbelievable, but his explanation is way more far-fetched.

By the way, this professor claims he’s done drugs before as well — so how do we know that he didn’t hallucinate this “Moses did drugs” story?
