Re: “ACLU-TN Calls for Haslam Veto of Drug-Testing for Welfare Applicants

Are people blind or what.Just drive down around the projects, look at cars they can afford, 500$ stereo's, go in some of the goverment housing and you will find high dollar stereo and tv eqipment.Big 22 rims on their cars, just to put tires on those rims cost a grand or more.
Yeah , drug testing for benifits is a good thing, if you can afford those luxuries for yourself then you can feed yourself and kids.
If you don't have a job or never worked a day in your life then how do you afford such things. ,Illegal activity that's how.
Why do you think the cops patrol those area's so much.Because that is where the crime is , drug sales are responsible most of those crimes.
Common sense people,no matter wich side of the political fence you are on , just use common sense.

Re: “Who Thinks They're the Landlord of My Vagina This Week?

You liberals keep screaming about the rights to your body.I agree 100% it's your body and you have rights to it since it is yours.You can wash it or not, you can tatoo it or not, you may want hair you may wish to go bald , you may choose to have sex or not, you may choose to be homosexual or not --it's your body. But if it 's your body then you should take the responsibility that comes with it. Buy your own soap if you wish to bath,pay for your tattoo, buy the haircut you choose to wear.And pay for your own birthcontrol if you choose to have sex.And if you don't and want an abortion then pay for it yourself ,it's your mistake not mine ,don't expect me to pay up for your lack of judgment.And you want to be homosexual the so be it , but don't expect special rules or laws just for you.And don't go into the schools and try to indoctrinate others children to you beleifs, If we can't indoctrinate all children to my religous beleifs, then why should you be able to indoctrinate all children to your sexual beliefs.

Re: “Radley Balko at Vanderbilt: The Trouble with SWAT

The problem is that the so called war on drugs has become a cash cow for the legal system.Th police and drug task force confiscate and keep lots of money and lots of new toys from bust.The lawyers make a ton defending the dealers or smalltime users.And the state probation makes a lot of money from probation fees.And now we have private probation companies contracting with the state and counties making money hand over fist.I have sat in the Sumner county courtroom and watched them run them thru like cattle attaching them to these probation services, some for just having a pack of rolling papers,( wich you can legally buy in any store , but if get caught with you get stuck with a paraphenalia charge) having to pay 1000$ dollar fines and a year on probation with some extravagant probation fees.I have been in the hall and listened to them threaten them with jail time if they dare not plead guilty and take probation.( I dare say there are a lot of kick backs going on).This is not just true on state and county levels but just think about the cash and property brought in on the federal level.Channel five just did a story on the police in Tennesse and how they are not looking for the drugs coming in, but are targeting the money going out, because it fills there coffers.It has shown in many articles that it possible to stem the flow of drugs into our country, but our goverment will try the methods that are more likely to work because they would alot revenue from the federal level all the way to the city level.I was one of the people who got caught in their trap, i was caught speeding on I-65 and I consented to search, they found 3500 dollars in my console i was going to buy a car with.They confiscated my money on suspicion of drug gains without even charging me,it cost me 1000 dollars in lawyer fees and over 6 months to get my money back. I got to checking and it turns out this is a very common thing to happen .They hedge their bets most won't fight to get their money back and from my checking it out on the internet they seem to get by with more times than not.Like I said it a cash cow for the goverment at all levels.

Re: “Planned Parenthood Strikes Back with Federal Lawsuit Against Tennessee

Genocide is a trademark of the left, with approximately 100,000,000 victims of communism (The Black Book of Communism). Continuing this tradition, Roe v. Wade, the infamous decision which claimed a new right to abortion that directly contradicts the U.S. Declaration of Independence ("We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."), was passed in 1973. But genocide doesn't play well with the masses, so Aesopian language refers to it as TOP (termination of pregnancy), population control "privacy," and "reproductive freedom." Many are aware that Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortion in the U.S., had eugenic beginnings. Founder Margaret Sanger was influenced by Malthusian eugenics, and noted eugenicists were on the PP board, including Alan Guttmacher, vice president of the American Eugenics Society1. Sanger's lover and mentor, Havelock Ellis, was a follower of Francis Galton, a leader in eugenics2.

One of Sanger's first clinics opened in Harlem in 1929. To give it legitimacy, she invited prominent black ministers, social workers, and journalists to be on the advisory council. In 1939 she started the "Negro Project," headed by Clarence Gamble of Procter & Gamble. Gamble suggested that she hire a black minister to preach the gospel of birth control in the mode of a religious revival and that she hire a black physician and nurse to administer the birth control. This would allay the suspicions of white supremacy in the black community, even though a photograph of Sanger addressing a Ku Klux Klan meeting is available. In her correspondence to Gamble, Sanger said: "We do not want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that out"3.

Fewer people know of Planned Parenthood's socialist connections. Sanger's husband, William, was connected to radical politics and attended socialist, anarchist, and communist meetings4. Sanger later joined the Socialist Party and was influenced by Emma Goldman, an anarchist. John Reed, a socialist, was also part of her circle. He visited Russia during the war, and wrote: "Russian ideals are the most exhilarating, thought the freest[.] ... Everyone acts just as he feels like acting, and says what he wants to"5. George Bernard Shaw, a socialist and one of the left's showpieces, was enthusiastic about Sanger's plans6, and he wrote in Birth Control Review: "We are up against an overpopulation problem created by Capitalism[.] ... Socialists say quite truly that Socialism can get rid of it. But it cannot wait for Socialism[.]" Later, Sanger became a "community organizer" for the IWW strike in Lawrence Mass. -- she was committed to the revolution7.

In a speech to the Fabian Society in London in 1915, she said that "Tho [sic] I was rocked in the cradle of Socialism -- for my father was one of the early pioneers of Socialist thot [sic] in USA yet with my nursing experience among women -- I could see the [great] undermining & weakening of that class both physically & mentally [through] ignorance of the care of their own bodies & especially the physiological functioning of the sex organs" (Fabian Hall Speech). Sanger wrote articles for The Masses and other socialist publications. In her autobiography, she explained why she joined the Socialist Party: "A religion without a name was spreading over the country. The converts were liberals, Socialists, anarchists, revolutionists of all shades. They were fixed in their faith in the coming revolution as ever any Primitive Christian in the immediate establishment of the Kingdom of God. Some could even predict the exact date of its advent"8.

Another important socialist connection for Sanger was W.E.B. Du Bois. The first black to obtain a Ph.D. from Harvard, Du Bois was a respected sociologist who helped found the NAACP in 1909. In 1930 Sanger invited him to join the advisory council for the Harlem clinic9. Prior to this, Du Bois had declared himself a Bolshevik after a trip to Russia. In 1959 he received the Lenin Prize for Peace, and he was admitted to the communist party in 196110.

How did Planned Parenthood's roots in radicalism and eugenics affect minority communities? Since Roe v. Wade, there have been 52 million legal abortions. It has been estimated that since then, black women have had approximately 16 million abortions. Michael Novak has calculated that "[s]ince the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member."

Planned Parenthood itself displayed amazing complicity in racial targeting when a young man associated with The Advocate, a student publication at UCLA, called its affiliates in seven states in 2007 saying he wanted to make a donation. Several of their officials were eager to accept the money -- even when the donor stipulated that he wanted it to be used only to kill black preborn babies. A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Idaho expressed excitement over the gift, despite the fact that the donor was motivated by racism. The phone call was recorded:

Caller: Okay, so-so the abortion could -- could be -- you know -- I could give money specifically for a black baby. That would-that would be the purpose.

Planned Parenthood: Yeah. Absolutely, um, if you wanted to designate that you wanted your gift to be used to help an African-American woman in need, um, then we would certainly, ah, make sure that that gift was earmarked specifically for that purpose.

A 2010 report from the Guttmacher Institute confirmed the disproportionate minority statistics: of all abortions, non-Hispanic black women accounted for 30%, Hispanic women 25%, and 3% members of other races, including American Indians11. All this has happened since the Civil Rights Act was passed. Dr. Robert George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, believes that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution empowers Congress to enforce through legislation the guarantees of due process and equal protection to unborn human beings as persons.

Four out of five of Planned Parenthood's clinics are located in minority neighborhoods, with blacks the primary target. For the Hispanic community, PP's literature is translated into Spanish, and Spanish-speaking "outreach directors" have been hired to bring in Latinas. These people often receive a bounty for each girl they bring in. The evidence is clear -- the left has a pogrom for minorities.

The left will use whatever means necessary to accomplish their goals, including the girl scouts. When the leftist elitists preach the gospel of birth control, the emphasis is on control and not birth. To them, there are no inalienable rights, but only the rights they grant12. On the other hand, they claim the right to control the wombs of minorities -- as evidenced by the genocide taking place13.

Re: “Planned Parenthood Strikes Back with Federal Lawsuit Against Tennessee

@ packrat--No I am not pro-choice.I do not now or ever will condone murder of a child.It a selfish act on behalf of those who choose to unresponsible.
But knowing that things are not going to change over night ,I am a realist that will fight to make sure my tax money does not go to provide abortions to these selfish and unresponsible people.So the best that can be done now is to make them pay for the abortion out of their own pockets, at least then they have to have some kind of responsibility for themselves.
Our welfare system is already out control with persons and families using it as a way of life so they don't have to actually work for a living.As i said before there are some 5th generation families on welfare and in public housing and you cannot tell me that out of 5 generations that not one in that family can find employment.
That is my problem with liberals, they seem to think that everyone else should pay for and be responsible for their decisions but themselves.Liberals teach people that is okay to live as you want and do as you please ,and let the rest of society foot the bill , and you try use Freedom as you battle cry.
Well I have freedom also and that freedom includes the having a voice in what and who my tax money pays for.
You can practice freedom with your body, and your choices of lifestyle, and wether you want to work or not.
I also get those same freedoms, and with that freedom comes the right to keep my money free of such abuses.

Liberal freedom----live and do as I so choose without the hassle of self responsiblity, to have all my mistakes and lack of judgements be paid for by those who have chosen to be responsible .

Conservitive freedom---The right to persue happiness with constraint, and responsibility.The freedom to choose my vocation and work hard at furthering myself in society and not be a burden upon such society.The freedom to accumalate possesions and property thru my hard work and dilligence. The freedom to choose my charities and to give to those I so choose who are in need.The freedom from the burden of carrying those who choose to not work hard, and those who make foolish decisions.
