PETE’S PAGE; ROE V. WADE EDITION

Posted by Pistol Pete

Today is the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade. It is a day celebrated by feminists as their right to engage in high-risk behavior without consequences. For some perverse reason known only to liberals,they view children as an impediment to the pursuit of their personal ambitions. Since 5 people decided the unborn are to be left to the tender mercies of the likes of Kermit Gosnell and George Tiller,55 million children have been denied a chance at life. To know a mother’s hug. Getting a face wash from a puppy. Gazing at a brightly-lit tree with wonderful presents with their name on them underneath it. Learning to ride a bike. Their first teenage crush. Driving a car. Getting a job. Falling in love. Getting married. Having children of their own. One thing is certain:every last leftard who is enthusiastically pro-abortion had a mother who was not.

Perhaps as a man and incapable of childbirth I’m not supposed to have an opinion.All I know is if not for my children and thegreatest gift they ever gave me,my grandchildren my soul would be impoverished and without much value.

AN OPEN LETTER FROM ABORTION BARBIE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Meet Wendy Davis,Victim

Dear Friend,

As our campaign has gained momentum, our opponents have gotten more and more desperate. But now they’ve stooped to a new low by attacking my family, my education, and my personal story – playing politics with the journey that has been my life. Mine is a story about a teenage single mother who struggled to keep her young family afloat. It’s a story about a young woman who was given a precious opportunity to work her way up in the world. It’s a story about resiliency, and sacrifice, and perseverance.And you’re damn right it’s a true story.

Throughout this campaign, I’ve shared that story – not because it’s unique, but because it isn’t.

The story of my life is also the story of millions of single mothers who feel alone in the world, millions of young dreamers searching for their chance to become something more than what they were born into, millions of families all across Texas who would sacrifice everything to give their children a better future.

It’s those stories – your stories – that drive my campaign. But Greg Abbott and his allies don’t want to hear them. They don’t have anything to offer Texans who find themselves in the same difficult situation I was in when I was young. They would slam the doors I walked through and pull up the ladders I was lucky to be able to climb.

And now, instead of offering real ideas to improve your life, they’re attacking mine.

It won’t work. The only thing Greg Abbott and his allies have proved with these desperate attacks is that they don’t understand what it means to live a life like mine – a life like that of so many people all across our state.

They don’t know me – and, what’s more important, they don’t know you.

I’m not surprised that the Abbott campaign would resort to attacking the story of a single mother who worked hard to get ahead.

And I’m not afraid of their false attacks – I developed thick skin long before anyone knew my name.

What I am is deeply proud of the life I’ve built and the daughters I’ve raised – and deeply grateful to the many, many people who have shared their stories and offered their support as I’ve traveled our state.

No false attack can take away my story. And no sleazy political trick will stop me from giving voice to yours.

Your stories are why I’m running for Governor. And together, I know we’ll make sure that the Texas we leave to our children is a place where every young mother can build a better life for her child. . . where every family can work their way up the economic ladder. . . where every Texan can achieve their dreams and live out their own success story.

If you’re with me, click here and add your name to my letter as a sign of support. Together, we’ll break through these attacks, win this election, and make Texas even greater.

Wendy

Freaky thing happened to me just now

My dd recommended I subscribe to the Our Daily Bread daily emails a while back. I’ve been enjoying them, but today is the very first time I ever paid any attention to the audio feature at the top, much less clicked on it. I also have maybe once bothered to look at the name of the author of the daily meditation … but this time I surely did, because when the audio host said it, I was like, “You gotta be kidding me?!”

We KNOW HER. She grew up on our street and was one of the girls’ most favorite EVER babysitters. I think they all still have the mugs she got them one Christmas.

I found her blog. She’s married now and has two kids. I’m not surprised she’s blogging spiritual meditations. She was a very strong Christian even in her teen years when most kids were embarrassed to admit their parents forced them to go to church. She and I had some great talks. And I knew she had majored in writing and gotten a job as a writer, so there you go.

Her curls are natural. 🙂

I will rescue you . . . , and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm. —Exodus 6:6

Many of us face the challenge of working with limited resources. Equipped with less money, less time, dwindling energy, and fewer helpers, our workload may remain the same. Sometimes, it even increases. There’s a saying that sums up this predicament: “More bricks, less straw.”

This phrase refers to the Israelites’ hardship as slaves in Egypt. Pharaoh decided to stop supplying them with straw, yet he required them to make the same number of bricks each day. They scoured the land to find supplies, while Pharaoh’s overseers beat them and pressured them to work harder (Ex. 5:13). The Israelites became so discouraged that they didn’t listen when God said through Moses, “I will rescue you . . . , and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm” (6:6).

Although the Israelites refused to hear God’s message, God was still guiding and directing Moses, preparing him to speak to Pharaoh. God remained firmly on Israel’s side—at work behind the scenes. Like the Israelites, we can become so downhearted that we ignore encouragement. In dark times, it’s comforting to remember that God is our deliverer (Ps. 40:17). He is always at work on our behalf, even if we can’t see what He is doing.
