When does life begin?

Some guy called Patrick Tomlinson tweeted what he considered to be proof positive that the “life begins at conception” crowd are hypocrites. Briefly, he proposed a situation where a pro-lifer is trapped in a burning fertility clinic and can rescue only a five-year-old child crying for help or a frozen box labeled “1000 Viable Human Embryos.” Which would you choose? The child, of course. GOTCHA! You don’t really believe life begins at conception. Ba-da-bum.

Matt Walsh skillfully and logically took his silly hypothetical to pieces. Just one paragraph of his article:

“It doesn’t matter how I value them personally. It’s their intrinsic value that matters. I value my family over your family but your family has the same intrinsic value. I’m making the decision based, as I said before, on emotion. I can see the child. I hear him crying. I’m looking him in the eyes. I grab him. It’s instinct. But there’s also some logic to it. I don’t really know how many of those embryos are still viable and whether they’ll ever be implanted and given the chance to develop. Again: this calculation WOULD NOT justify killing the embryos under any circumstance, but it would justify my decision to save the child instead. By the way, if it were a five-year-old and a 70-year-old in there, I’d save the five-year-old. If it were a five-year-old and Patrick Tomlinson in there, I’m still saving the five-year-old. Sorry, Pat. But does that mean Pat’s life has less value? Does that mean I could crush his skull and suck his brains out with a vacuum hose? No, it just means that my emotional impulse leads me to the child, not the pretentious pro-abortion dude who spends his time posing disingenuous hypotheticals.”

Tomlinson responded to Walsh’s response: “Oh Matty. If only I gave a shit what you think.”

Wait, what? Didn’t he specifically ASK pro-lifers to respond to his hypothetical?!

Walsh pithily responded with this.

Another tweeter added the cymbal crash with:

“It’s like watching Batman solve the Riddler’s puzzle, and the Riddler’s subsequent tantrum afterward.”

LOL!

My Outrage Runneth Over

Leftists make me SICK. Thankfully, Wounded Warrior J.R. Salzman tweets!

Yesterday:

  • If I have this right, Obama released dangerous terrorists, to free Bergdahl from captivity, all so he could plead guilty and go to prison?
  • I had a couple thoughts pop into my head today about Bergdahl. First, does everyone remember the timing? Right after the VA scandal.
  • After the press reported that veterans were dying on secret waitlists, after Obama had promised to fix the VA, they needed positive news.
  • There were times the military knew where Bergdahl was being held right down to the number of men guarding him. Obama wouldn’t greenlight.
  • Suddenly on the heels of the VA scandal, Bergdahl became urgent. His health was supposedly failing. Obama said the trade HAD to happen.
  • Although the military knew he had walked off and deserted, Obama gave him a hero’s welcome. Rice said he served with honor and distinction.
  • There was the big TV conference with Obama and Bergdahls parents. It was all spin. Then his former soldiers started coming forward.
  • They started revealing how many soldiers were killed and wounded looking for him after he deserted. The spin collapsed and now here we are.
  • As a veteran I agree that we never leave a man behind, even a shit bag like Bergdahl. But the positive spin never should have happened.
  • Bergdahl was never a hero. He chose to abandon his post and his fellow soldiers got killed and wounded because of his actions.
  • Unfortunately the whole scenario is what happens when politics and the military converge. People get used as props. I experienced it too.
  • In the end five terrorists were released who never should’ve been. And Bergdahl was released from captivity only to go to another captivity.

Today:

  • Amazing to see those who basically cheered when a soldier died under Bush bring out the fainting couches for gold star families under Trump.
  • You a**holes never supported us under Bush. You cheered every time the soldier death count ticker got higher on CNN. We were political ammo.
  • You marched in your little antiwar protests. You threw fake blood on our recruiting centers. You protested outside Walter Reed every Friday.
  • You shouted about the fierce sense of moral urgency to immediately end the wars and bring all the troops home. And then what happened?
  • Then Obama got elected and you disappeared. You turned your back on the wars. Your protests were all for show. F*** you and your politics.
  • Do you think those of us who served have forgotten how you treated us? How you cheered for failure? We haven’t. We never will. F*** you all.

My two cents:

The Left called George W. Bush a “blood for oil” war-mongering cowboy who didn’t care a toot about soldiers’ lives. Yet, Bush regularly visited Wounded Warriors in hospital while he was in office and has done so since he retired. He continues to host annual sporting events for them in which he personally participates and he and Laura have Gold Star wives and moms to their home.

The Left called Barack Obama a hero for peace. The Nobel committee gave him a prize for promoting peace when he had done exactly nothing except run for office and not be George Bush.

The slobbering Democrat media did not CARE that, while campaigning, he ditched a scheduled visit to a U.S. military hospital because they wouldn’t let his camera crew inside, or that he sent form letters to the bereaved, or that he lied to the faces of the Benghazi families.

They did not CARE that he bombed more countries and involved us in more foreign wars than ANY PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY.

They did not CARE that his wife made “Support for Military Families” one of her two First Lady projects but, to my knowledge, never visited or did damn all to support wounded warriors or the families of wounded and killed soldiers.

So, Lefties … ASK me if I CARE what you think about Trump’s phone calls or whatever it is you’re whining about. Go ahead, ask. I dare you.

I LOVE honey fermented garlic!

I use it a lot in my cooking and it’s absolutely brilliant as a home remedy for colds/flu. This was posted just now on the fermenting board I administrate:

“Honey/garlic fermented is amazing stuff. My entire family was exposed to the flu a few days ago. Yesterday, half of us started getting very achy and pukey feeling. I went to my cabinet and grabbed that stuff and had everyone take a spoon of it (1 garlic clove with honey). It wasn’t the worst thing I’ve taken haha. Within 30 minutes, I started feeling pretty good! All of us feel 100% fine today!”

4 Pete’s Sake…10/18/17

I can’t take credit for the title. I’m not due to have an original thought for almost 3 weeks yet. It’s from one of my dearest cyber friends who goes way back with me. I won’t call her old, because she’s not as old as I am. Of course, neither is dirt, but that’s another story.

I don’t know if anyone can truly appreciate the cold, unfeeling beast that was almost our president. Being the smartest people around (after all, you come here first), you’ve no doubt heard about the uranium deal she made with Putin. What must be understood is that when Obama made her SOS it served a twofold purpose…. it got her out of the Senate and gave her a chance to make hundreds of millions selling future access to the White House where she fully intended to be living by now. More and more is coming out about this travesty and it’s not pretty.

Team Obama’s stunning cover-up of Russian crimes
It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks.

Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval.

Hillary Clinton, again, sat on a key government body that had to approve the deal — though she now claims she had no role in a deal with profound national-security implications, and during the campaign called the payments a coincidence.

There’s more: Until September 2013, the FBI director was Robert Mueller — who’s now the special counsel probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It’s hard to see how he can be trusted in that job unless he explains what he knew about this Obama-era coverup.

Russian Bribery Scheme Included Laundering Cash in Briefcases and Delivering Cash in Yellow Envelopes

All Russian roads lead to Hillary Clinton.
Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval.  The Clintons took the cash from Uranium One officials before the deal was approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The Clintons hid the donations which is a clear violation of the Memorandum of Understanding Hillary Clinton signed with the Obama administration wherein she promised and agreed to publicly disclose all donations during her tenure as Secretary of State

Hannity’s Best Ever Monologue: ‘Hillary Clinton and Her Husband Sold Out America to the Russians’

“Tonight, with this new evidence, what we have discovered is that the evidence against the Clintons is overwhelming, it is incontrovertible,” Hannity continued. “Hillary Clinton and her husband sold out America to the Russians while millions of dollars flowed to their family foundation. And in the process, Clinton created a massive national security risk for every man, woman, and child — giving Vladimir Putin control over American uranium.”

Clinton Admits ‘Perhaps’ She Could Have Done Better Reassuring White Voters
NOT LIKELY…  THEY KNOW YOU TO BE A COLD, SOULLESS, GREEDY BITCH WHO WILL WALK OVER ANYONE TO GET WHATEVER YOU WANT.

Clinton said that while she won most of the minority vote during the 2016 election, she could have done a better job at reassuring the fears of white voters and women while talking with an Economists podcast Tuesday.
