Someone PLEASE tell me WHY do Conservatives always defer to the violence and crudeness and thuggery of liberals? WHY? And where has civility and decency and basic morals gone to in our society? Someone tell me just WHY the demon prez and his junkies who advocate the kind of utter and total violence and KILLING that those demented PRO-ABORTIONISTS advocate get away with their thuggery and their abject violence and MURDERING? And where is that completely UNCIVILIZED MSM today? Where is todays Woodward and Bernstein?

WHY? I will tell you why, but you and others may not want to hear it. The American people gave the educational system of this country up decades ago and the switch in to absolute corruption is something that the previous moral majority has been unable to keep down. The people wanted an economy that was consumer driven, where people didn't work and save but spent and lived off borrowed money and looked at life as a hedonistic exercise in consumption. What does this have to do with this story-? EVERYTHING. Its a mindset. People are too busy with everything else to be bothered by this stuff enough to do something. Instead of wanting their kids to be moral, upstanding citizens they wanted successful high income job seekers. The fact is this

is the mindset of too many and the generation of today is the scre wed generation where the money is gonna run out and the fun is gonna cease and the bills are gonna come due. An abortion for convenience sake is a primary reason. Children are devalued. Their spiritual, emotional and moral education is devalued. They are nothing more than either an inconvenience or a "friend" of their parents. The belief that people as individuals are dispendable and as groups are important is the norm. This is a perfect storm for valueless, hedonistic haters of children and the elderly why? Because they are in the way of all the temporary fun we can have.

If Nixon was a democrat the story wouldn't have been broken. Ted Kennedy almost became President even after killing a woman. It's always been really, really horrible. We are just more aware of it now and that's what's depressing. They are losing money financially and the we can make them as financially bankrupt as they are morally.

These are the seats reserved for the media at the Kermit Gosnell trial.  Over at Patheos, Molly Hemingway discusses her very revealing twitter correspondence with Sarah Kliff, the health/abortion reporter at the Washington Post. Kliff, who covered the Sandra Fluke and Komen/Planned Parenthood controversieis extensively, provided a most interesting rationale for her blackout on the story.
