There is good reason why I NEVER watch the "major news networks": selective reporting mixed with propaganda supplemented with outright lies.
This column is essentially special pleading for births to take place exclusively in hospitals. My older daughter has chosen to have her children in a hospital; my younger daughter has chosen a highly competent, professionally trained midwife and has had her children at home in a birthing pool. IF any problems arose, my younger daughter's midwife would take/ send her to the (very) local hospital, though her thorough examinations in advance of the birth render unforseen problems exceedingly unlikely. We are not New Age mystics, but consider the problems of home birth the lesser of the dangers. The special pleading in the column is unworthy of serious consideration.

I have no idea why you're blaming "neocons". B. O., Hillary and Kerry (and their minions) have been directing our foreign policy for over 6 years now. Why not simply name and blame them? (Or is it that you're a Leftist and can't bear to recognize that a policy you oppose is sponsored and implemented by your own people?)

MN makes it clear that he opposes Vladimir Putin root and branch, but with such passion that he himself seems to be mentally unhinged. MN speaks of "an appallingly dirty war against separatists in Chechnya," but fails to recognize that the Islamic terrorists there preceded Putin's rise to power and are akin to the Taliban and Al Qaida. The USA has been unwilling to make common cause with Russia's attempts to deal with their own terrorists, while wanting others to join us in fighting those we are trying to suppress. It is stupid of MN to assert that the terrorists in Chechnya are "entirely home-grown"; they are clearly connected to Islamic terrorists elsewhere. As to NATO's eastward expansion: what Putin is objecting to is the expansion to Russia's borders of a military pact which still seems designed to oppose Russia. It is of equivalent concern that the European Union is attempting to bring under its economic hegemony former parts of the Soviet Union (which previously were integral parts of Russia under the Czars): e.g., the Ukraine, (parts of which, including particularly Crimea) are majority Russian. This included a coup which removed a legally elected President, largely because he wished to continue close economic ties to Russia rather than replace them with ties to the EU (to the EU's economic benefit). What MN terms Putin's ignorance of "basic trends ...in energy markets" is foolish. Putin is hardly unaware of these trends and their causes. But it is a complex matter and many Western analysts believe that prices will rise again. Without going into detail in respect to MN's every claim, something I readily could do, if anything it's MN who is lying and who seems to think that his Western readers will (out of ignorance) believe whatever he says. I would caution any who read anything he writes to be extremely wary of believing anything he says, whether by way of fact or opinion: he very much has "a dog in the fight.".
Instead of "I think Perry had his chance and blew it", .Schlichter could just as well have written "I think Romnay had his chance and blew it." Further, he does not explain why he thinks Christie might be a winning candidate.apart from agressiveness; nor does he explain why he thinks Cruz "has absolutely no chance of ever being president." The whole is nothing more than a collection of unsubstantiated opinons

I'd like to know who the Republican idiot is who is responsible for inviting Todd. Whoever it is should be in charge of nothing more crucial than sweeping the floors.
I will not dispute what you say, but the Swedish elite would deny that the gas chambers are lethal as long as they remain conscious. They can not be brought to think it possible that they are wrong.
No disaster whatever will shake the faith of the Swedish elite. The optimistic pacifism they advocate is their religion and is impervious to external reality.

A complete nonsense of a column. She clearly hasn't a clue what she's talking about.
