JivinJ’s Life Links 10-27-08

by George Weigel and editorial entitled, “Catholic Brief for Obama.” It’s almost like endorsing Obama makes people dumber. Of course it’s not that and every election cycle people of both sides disavow previously firm beliefs and issues simply because they prefer a certain candidate. But this year with Obama it just seems to have exponentially […]

Stephen Baldwin: Obama is “cultural terrorist”

Last week actor Stephen Baldwin caused a liberal stir by calling Barack Obama a “cultural terrorist” and jokingly challenging him to a boxing match, which he was attending at the time, adding, “I’d like to knock some good sense into Barack.

New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: This week the media reported Sarah Palin’s new wardrobe cost $150,000. It didn’t report how much her 3 amigos’ suits cost. It didn’t report how much Michelle Obama’s wardrobe cost. Do you think this is but one example of the media’s sexist or ideological prejudice against Palin? Shock, we […]

Weekend question

This question was posed on Planned Parenthood’s The Alan Guttmacher Institute, published a study in November 2006 estimating, “Among women having abortions in the United States, about one-half have already had a prior abortion.” If one’s first abortion is the fault of inadequate sex education or nonavailability of contraception, whose fault is a repeat abortion, […]

war-on-women

I’m a pro-choice individual who actually acknowledges that those who disagree with me are not raging, full blown misogynists. What’s my reasoning you might ask? I’m happy to oblige.

First and foremost, I don’t buy the idea that people who are pro-life hold that position because they seek to control women’s bodies. This is a myth perpetuated by many Democrats as part of the “War on Women.” To attack the pro-life position as a “War on Women” is to completely ignore the much more widely cited reason for being pro-life, which is concern that fetus’s [sic] being aborted are in fact alive and sentient….

Here’s another reason why pro-life individuals are not inherently sexist. It’s seemingly obvious but is almost completely ignored in the abortion debate. Tens of millions of women are pro-life. According to Gallup polling, as many as 41 percent of women identify as pro-life. That’s almost half!

Did Anthony Brown and Mark Udall intend to convince voters that almost half of all American women are self-hating sexists, Hell-bent on waging war on… themselves? Regardless of their intentions, women saw through their illogical and downright dishonest allegations. Both candidates lost easily winnable races.

Women are smart. Democrats know that right? I mean come on! You’ve got some of the smartest women in the world as your rising stars…. Women see through cynical pandering.

Next time, try running on your accomplishments. It’s not like you have a dearth of other issues to talk about. Same sex marriage and the minimum wage have been trending your way for instance. However, if you use those issues, please try to refrain from calling people against same sex marriage homophobic and those against an increased the minimum wage classist. Instead, try actually having an honest debate about the policies themselves. You’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Similarly, you’ll catch more votes with good policies, than with disingenuous accusations of prejudice.
