Just hours before President Trump names his Supreme Court nominee (and may there soon be more), we continue to watch hard-core Republicans and members of the far right almost shouting with glee, convinced that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. I, of course, am an Independent voter who, nevertheless, detests almost everything the left has offered and proclaims to offer as its brain trust turns ever more radical.
Still, I'm not on the list endorsing a reverse decision for Roe v. Wade. Once we start overturning issues already decided by the highest court, does it not become easier and convenient to start busting all kinds of decisions assumed to be the "last word?"
Abortions are not going away any time soon, no matter what courts decide. Would it not be nice if they all but disappeared? Well, maybe so, but wouldn't it be astonishing if science invented 50 new methods of safe, effective and inexpensive birth control for males and females, substances whose manner of absorption presented no obstacles or side-effects?
Our disclaimer, obvious to those who follow this blog, is that we are not proponents for excessive human population growth whatsoever, and prefer that the ultimate solution, short of dreaded wars and grinding military action, is social responsibility. We simply adore repeated utterances from organizations with an agenda, stating that human population is actually on the decline, but we're rather skeptical about what these assertions mean, depending upon world locations chosen for conversation. If world hunger is bad, just wait until water wars step up and we witness how a lot of people are a lot of people.
Meanwhile, our Democrat friends persist in attracting the most outrageous leftist tripe ever, the most fantastic being calls for the abolition of I.C.E. Frosting that cake was the win for congressional Democrat candidate and avowed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of whom DNC chairman Tom Perez remarked is "the future of our party." If one couldn't get enough of this pronouncement, there was also the not widely reported news tidbit announcing that one Gregory "Shoaib" Jones of Alaska plans to run for Congress. Enhancing his resume' is Jones' membership in the radical group, Muslims of the Americas, investigated since the seventies by the government.
We, who wrote letters to newspaper editors years ago promising water on the moon (you're welcome, NASA) purely via common sense, were hardly surprised at NASA's revelation last week confirming the existence of organic molecules on Mars.
Unfortunately, our expectations and dedicated faith about science in general were slammed to bits when a researcher recently used strong language to suggest that most -- most? -- scientific studies are simply wrong.
But aside from all of this, even as the Chinese announce production of a super-powerful rocket (among other fast-track weapons), many of us while away precious moments blubbering over uninvited adult criminals bringing or sending their uninvited children over the U.S. border, hoping to make things even worse by closing down I.C.E.
The left and their beloved Hollywood supporters have gone mad in America, mad beyond belief, and it's a terrible sight to behold. No matter the name Trump puts out there in a few hours, we'll be listening for the sounds of leftist lunacy turned up to high volume.
