Gender Selection in a Brave New World

In China and India, there is a large surplus of boys over girls. This is due to deliberate abortion of girls. Conversely, in the USA, women are already using preimplantation analysis to select the gender of their embryos. And they’re overwhelmingly choosing to have daughters. There is something wrong with all this.

If we took on Syria, we would be taking on Russia.

The downside of being against illegal immigration is that most of the immigrants come from central and south America, and the legal immigrants from that region may believe that you are against them too. I think the case is fairly straightforward - no country can have a border that can be waltzed over by anyone. Though the fact is, that the border crossings are where people visit their relatives, or tour the respective countries, or do shopping, or trade goods, and so you really can't close the border. You can slow down the waves of people coming in though.

Along with people looking for work, we are getting a substantial number of people from countries where "jihad" is considered a good thing. Therefore, the border should be made more secure, and after that, we can have the debate of whether illegals should be amnestied or given some intermediate work-status or sent home.
If people cannot discipline themselves, the discipline will eventually come from somewhere, in a very painful fashion. I myself was out of control in all of my urges, - in regards to hunger I was diagnosed as a bulimic (a medical word for being a pig) by an initially skeptical psychiatrist, and sex was just as bad. And then some of my weirder behavior got blasted in movie around campus, and you can imagine what happened then. So I don't understand people who encourage the attitude "if it feels good do it", and the whole "hookup" culture. I publicly tried to soften the impact of the movie by saying "I had not touched a woman in my life", but that omission was corrected - I was sexually assaulted multiple times - while drugged. There are a lot of pigs out there - and abstinence until marriage would avoid a lot of problems.

While some of the what-ifs are true, didn't it make more sense to trade with Iraq, if we just wanted oil, then go to war with it? We want South African minerals, but we don't make war with that country. Why not? And what evidence does judge Napolitano have that George W went to war to avenge his father? Some judge.

Well yes, but these jihadists have a dream - a ISIS flag over the White House. That is the problem.

There was also the mentality of "lets burn down the local doughnut shop and throw bags of urine at police because they hate us and shoot innocent black people for fun." And the media, by not tellng the real story, is complicit. In addition, there is a book (by Colin Flaherty), full of videos that you can scan in to your cellphone. of black mobs attacking innocent whites, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY - from Portland Oregon, to Peoria Illinois, to Philadelphia, PA and this is not reported, so how do you expect the many good blacks to realize that there is a problem? And how do you expect the victims, and their families to ever trust the media again?

Is ISIS 'An Existential Threat'?

There were Sunnis who did not like the rule of terrorists and who fought Al Queda in the "awakening", and now they are in the hands of ISIS, and some are being murdered. Those Sunnis may not have liked us, but they trusted us. 8 Christians were crucified in one day recently - by ISIS. ISIS is just doing what they think the Koran tells them (it does recommend crucifixion in some cases, for instance). They are also demanding women from the locals for producing baby Jihadists. Even now that we are giving some arms to the Kurds, we are doing it half-heartedly - just giving them light arms. The Kurds were also friendlier than most of their fellow Muslims to the US. The Kurds are complaining that ISIS has much more firepower than the "light arms" we have finally decided to give them. But there is are good points that Buchanan makes - why on earth doesn't Turkey or Saudi Arabia intervene? What's going on there?

Looking at my own comment - it seems to contradict itself. while many businesses benefit by illegal labor, my meaning is that there is no proof that either Republicans or Democrats vote on that basis. They may be competing for votes, or may believe it is inhumane to have "people living in the shadows with feat of deportation". I don't know.
