Re: “The Daily Links: The Cosby Accusers, Junior Seau, and Twitter Jokes

Hey you guys!

The Center for Medical Progress has released a third Planned Parenthood video, promising to be the first of a series. This one focuses on a phlebotomist who was hired by StemExpress as a "procurement technician." She says she found out after she was hired that rather than drawing blood (which is what a phlebotomist does), she was dissecting aborted babies so their parts could be sold off.

Some quotes:

"They do get some kind of benefit."
"They wanted someone who can get the numbers up."
"For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated."

"We were asked to procure certain tissues like brain, livers, thymus, pancreas, heart, lungs, and pretty much anything on the fetus. It's basically a huge trafficking of fetal tissues."

In the future, young people will say, “Who cares about 21st century technology? Those people murdered their babies. The very mothers who should have nurtured them had them torn out of their wombs piece by piece, their bodies sold in parts, burned for heat. Why should we admire their computers and phones? Their spaceships to Pluto? The medicines they discovered that we still use today? They killed their children. The very fathers who should have protected them, turned their backs and left them to die. Babies with no voice, no vote, no way to protect themselves. Those people slaughtered them just to insure they could have sex whenever they wanted, with whomever they wanted, without consequence to themselves. For their pleasure and convenience, they murdered millions and millions and millions.”

Re: “Venerable Eatery Wendell Smith's Remains a Landmark on the Booming Charlotte Corridor

A few questions:
1. who own the building? Does the family or is it leased? That one factor will determine how much longer it is before Tony Giarratana swoops in and builds more housing on top of old places top eat food. Ain't that ironic?

2. Why do I always think of whiskey whenever I hear Wendell Smith? [I kid]

Re: “Rick Womick Needs to Learn the Difference Between a Threat and a Fact

Well, I can think of a number of treasonous things going on in this country. Anyway, I've felt for a long time that LGBT people should be declared a federal protected class. This would be quite useful.

With marriage and some other issues for this group, we have U.S. Supreme Court precedent and established civil rights. People in elected and appointed public office and working on our dime cannot legally discriminate. If they can't do their jobs and uphold our laws, they should resign or be fired.

I support, however, the option to discriminate by people acting in private capacities, such as the cake bakers and wedding photographers, though I may be offended and saddened by their reasons. My view/position has much broader implications, of course, but I'd still make the case for individual rights and one's rights ending where another's begin -- a freedom that should go both ways. I hope these bakers, etc., prevail in cases that are on their way to the Supreme Court, because this is about protections for all of us. Yes, I believe in the right to refuse private, personal services to anyone.

People employed by us, the American people as a whole, and being paid with our tax dollars are a different story and can't, and shouldn't, legally pick and choose whom they will serve -- that is, whose civil rights they will disregard.

Re: “Rick Womick Needs to Learn the Difference Between a Threat and a Fact

local guy - A) thanks.

B) On the legal theory that the Supreme Court opines on specific laws that are in place and brought to its attention, not issues in a general sense.

Why would Alaska (for example) be **bound** by a Supreme Court decision that invalidated a Tennessee law? Alaska may be foolish to have a similar law that creates similar circumstances and a similar court review that will inevitably reach a similar result (this is Betsy Phillips's point), but unless the justices put the red line through the law in Alaska, Alaska can proceed apace; what's the Supreme Court going to do unless someone with standing brings suit?

Perhaps Glenn Funk should investigate whether Womick's activity constitutes the unlicensed practice of law.

Re: “Rick Womick Needs to Learn the Difference Between a Threat and a Fact

NG: I believe he only had one brother and that was a much older half brother. That would make him a half uncle of the country, a very important distinction in a family that feuds as we seem to do in this country.


Womick is a lowly buffoon badly pandering to the lowest form of Latter Day Anarchists and encouraging the clerks to defy their duties. I would imagine that would make him complicit as a conspirator in any dereliction they are saddled with legally. I seriously doubt it would come to this, the state courts would simply remove such clerks and if Womick had a law license it would be endangered for malpractice.

Treason is a bit much, blind indifference and arrogance is another matter.

A. TN was a party. One of the lawyers was from Nashville and argued the case.
B. Under what legal theory does a SCOTUS opinion not apply on an issue where constitutional rights are found to exist? It was not a procedural issue.

This guy is not an attorney yet he is giving free constitutional legal advice. I'd say it's worth exactly what he's charging for it. Nothing.

Re: “Rick Womick Needs to Learn the Difference Between a Threat and a Fact

Unless TN was a party to the case the SCOTUS reviewed, TN is not bound by the SCOTUS review.

That is not to say that given similar facts within the state of TN that the Supreme Court would not come to the same decision (how could they not?). What we have is tilting against windmills, rolling a boulder up a hill, delaying the inevitable and all.

Re: “Rick Womick Needs to Learn the Difference Between a Threat and a Fact

This really pisses me off. My family set up shot at Jamestown and my fifth great grandfather was the chief justice of the supreme court who institutionalized the concept of judicial review into American law. Rick Womick really needs to read Life of Washington, an amazing biography written by John Marshall (who was very close friends with Bushrod Washington, nephew of George), and John Marshall: Definer of a Nation by Jean Edward Smith. I thin he would have a better understanding of how this country works upon doing so.

Will Rep. Womick indemnify the clerks for the damages and attorneys' fees that will result when they are sued for following his advice?

Sometimes I wake up in the morning and wonder if this might be the day a Republican state legislator didn't say something that was batshit crazy.

Today was not the day.
