Roe Is Social Poison And Must Go — A poisonous leak from the Supreme Court has revealed that the poisonous Roe V Wade decision appears about to be overturned.
If you doubt that Roe was poison, review any Senate hearing for a Republican Supreme Court nominee over the last four decades. You’ll see shrieking harpies haranguing lawmakers in legislative hallways, and misogynistic hypocrites like the late and unlamented Ted Kennedy and the lamentable Joe Biden trying to ruin the lives of decent people with lies and distortions.
The weeks are counted by gestational age which is usually considered 14 days prior to conception.
Ladies, did you ever consider that saying the baby is your body is really not the smartest message to send to young males trying to figure things out, and that the guys cheering you on are the users of the world like Kennedy or Clinton or pick your Hollywood rapist?
What I can’t face about abortion is the reality of it: that these are human beings, the most vulnerable among us, and we have no care for them. How terrible to know that in the space of an hour, a baby could be alive—his heart beating, his kidneys creating the urine that becomes the amniotic fluid of his safe home—and then be dead, his heart stopped, his body soon to be discarded.
And that’s the point of the debate.
A society that treats innocent, helpless human beings as disposable whether that person is a baby or is elderly or has Down syndrome, is a society that is going to die and deserves to do so.
A blanket ban on abortion may be a bad idea, but calling abortion a “right” is the worst idea of all.
I wrote about citizen activists winning in Lancaster County, now I can say they’ve won in Swarthmore.
At least round one.
On April 26, the Swarthmore Borough Planning Commission met to consider the demolition of the historic Celia Building at 102-104 Park Ave along with buildings at 110 and 112 Park Ave. so that developers, William Cumby, Jr. and Don Delson, could proceed with construction of a five-story condominium.
The way these hearings proceed, public comment is followed by discussion among the nine-member panel followed by the vote, usually one of approval.
The various commissions rarely meet a proposal they don’t like.
However as the 35 or so members of the public spoke in the three-plus hour meeting, only two supported the proposal. The night ended with the planners recommending that Borough Council deny the application.
The developers have vowed to fight on as they maintain that this will set “a precedent that will preclude any revitalization of the Town Center”, irregardless of numerous developments like the Swarthmore Inn, the Roundabout, and three establishments in formally “dry” Swarthmore that now sell liquor, all of which were intimated to be part of the “revitalization” effort.
If this doesn’t work, maybe we could try “the Quaker Casino”.
At the Borough Council meeting on Monday, May 2, the developers had gathered 22 supporters against an opposition of 13. Interestingly enough, Planning Commission Chair Chris DeBruyn who was absent at the April 26 meeting said that he had been there he would have backed demolition.
Walking out after three hours, before the end of the Borough Council Meeting but after all the public comment, none of us felt that a good enough case had been made for how the Condos would actually benefit Swarthmore.
Swarthmore Borough Council will meet May 19 to consider the recommendation from the planning commission.
Chesco GOP Cancels Vogel Or Go Woke, Get Smoked — The Chester County Republicans, following their long tradition of mind-blowing, self-destructive stupidity, have censured Ron Vogel for statements made more than a decade ago on Facebook.
And this is with the Primary Election (May 17) just two weeks away.
Vogel easily won the Chesco’s Republican committee’s straw poll although since he didn’t get the 60 percent required for an endorsement, no endorsement was made albeit he was to have been among the recommended candidates.
The censure, however, means that Vogel’s name will be the only one left off the Republican election material.
It’s a great way to tick off Vogel’s many supporters. Can you say disunity in November? We knew you could.
Vogel’s crime is, well, we’re not sure.
It apparently involves posting this 2012 Downfall parody of the Pittsburgh Penguins loss to the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup playoffs; linking to a heavy metal band with an obscene name; and a derogatory word said in a thread by a friend as a way of a greeting.
And all these purportedly vile deeds happened between 10 and 15 years ago mostly while he was in college.
Some of those supporting the censure should be ashamed of themselves considering the unfair things they experienced at the hands of the social justice mob.
If we don’t learn to forgive sin — much less make sins up — we will never win.
Rather than attacking Vogel, a better use of time would to ask Ms. Houlahan how she feels about the real anti-semitism of fellow Democrat congresswomen Ilhan Omar; Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
You kind of wonder if the Chesco GOP even wants to win in November.
If I lived in the 6th District I’d vote for Vogel just to spite the party bosses.
Here’s a link to a video of Vogel explaining the twisted dishonesty of the allegations against him. Click on the word Media.
He points out that the The Linux Foundation is in the “Vaccine Passport” business.
He says that the non-profit Mozilla Foundation and the mucho-profit Mozilla Corporation are run by the same guy and that Mozilla Corp. brings in $800 million per year.
Most tragically, he reveals that the Open Source Initiative (OSI) is funded by Google, Microsoft, Comcast, and Twitter and that it has canceled Bruce Perens and Eric S Raymond, the men who founded the OSI in 1998.
In a side note, Lunduke says efforts have been launched to ban the founder of the Free Software Foundation, Richard Stallman, and the creator of the Linux Kernel, Linus Torvalds, from the projects that they started.
“There are significant portions of the open source industry that really have it out for the founders of the projects they use,” he says.
So what to do?
Understand that one will never find perfection this side of Heaven and that demanding it on Earth will only lead to the bad guys winning.
Everyone should start learning Linux. Everyone should use a different search engine than Google.
