“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he continued. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Dog eat dog.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Kara Dansky, a feminist lawyer and spokeswoman for Women's Liberation Front (WoLF), spoke against the so-called "Equality Act" at the Heritage Foundation on Monday, denouncing the transgender and gender identity movement as anti-women and anti-lesbian in particular. Her remarks echoed the London Pride March sign declaring that "Transactivism Erases Lesbians."

"This is a men's rights movement — this is really a men's rights movement," Dansky declared, calling for men to stand up for women and denounce the transgender movement.

Too good to be true? Is there a cure for all cancers right around the corner?

A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd.

Looking for a new contributor CNN goes to the bottom of the barrel.

Sometimes you get the feeling CNN isn’t even trying to feign legitimacy anymore.

It’s not like Florida officials didn’t just find probable cause that former Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum violated state ethics laws.

Four days removed from the Florida Ethics Commission finding probable cause on five out of six counts, CNN hired Gillum as a political commentator, leaving skeptics to wonder how long the wait will be before the Democrat is lecturing the opposition on ethics.

coal-1200x630.jpg

Before Catepillars and other heavy equipment miners went under the surface of the earth. And they got a wee bit dirty.
Take Rashaad Thomas, a man who could not possibly have been this much of a little b*tch when he was in the Air Force.

Rashaad Thomas tells us that he’s an upset victim who deserves an apology because he went into a restaurant in Phoenix and they had up a picture of coal miners. This is one of those modern cases of “victimization” where you have to be told what the problem is because not being a b*tchy little crybaby, you wouldn’t be able to guess.

Rashaad Thomas must live a sad existence to go through life searching for things to be "triggered" by. Either that or he is one big-ass attention whore.

America, a generous country. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Brent is mentally handicapped and is known for riding his bicycle down Main Street, honking his horn and spreading happiness.

Last Thursday, Brent walked into Josh Barnett's office with a black eye.

"He came in my office to say hi, I noticed he had a black eye," Barnett said.

"He pulled out his wallet and said, 'look no money I need milk and juice and food'.

Brent is a giver! He has never asked for money. He must be in need. I don't know if it's medical bills or what, but Brent needs help!"
