tl;dr – just because you're a masculine woman, or a feminine man, doesn't mean you should be doing surgery and pumping your body with hormones.

Make no doubt about it, abortion should be a woman's choice, even if it is a tragic decision. "Safe, legal and rare", was one of the few things I've ever agreed with a Clinton on.

That being said, selling dead baby parts is both gruesome and troublesome. If the women are clearly being told, "after we're done with this procedure, we're going to be splitting up the dead baby parts and shipping them to biotech companies", that's one thing…but I'm sure if they did require informed consent, their available dead baby parts would dramatically decrease.

A House panel looks at the grisly details.

tl;dr – A great leader spoke today at the memorial for those killed by hate in Dallas.

“Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples, while judging ourselves by our best intentions.”

How did we get here? How did we get to the brink of civil war, when racism has largely ceased to be a problem in American society?

So, let's get this straight – white guy with confederate flag pics shoots up a church, and we impose a purge on any historical imagery of the confederacy.

Black guy with #BLM  pics shoots up white cops, and "We cannot let the actions of a few define all of us"?

There is a blinding hypocrisy here, and Barry is just making it worse for everyone. Blacks are afraid of trigger happy police. Police are afraid of ambushes by #BLM  terrorists. In the meantime, somehow, we're supposed to believe that all of this crazy is because of firearms that magically pervert normal people into racist cops, or racist terrorists.

Bottom line:

1) inner city violence requires a police presence to manage, but it will take a cultural change on behalf of inner city residents to fix;

2) use of force by police must be scrutinized, minimized, and held to the highest standards;

3) self-defense is a natural right that should not be abridged.

President Obama on Saturday urged Americans to remain optimistic about race relations in the immediate aftermath of two black males being fatally shot by police officers, then a gunman apparently retaliating by killing five Dallas law-enforcement officials, saying, “We cannot let the actions of a few define all of us.”
