    THE SCENE: An abortion clinic in a medium-sized city. THE PLAYERS: The clinic administrator, a pregnant woman and the clinic doctor. ADMINISTRATOR: Welcome to Planned Non-Parenthood, Mrs. Dummer, how can we help you? CLIENT: I read about the trendy, new gender-based abortions, which started in China. I wonder if you make them available here? I understand that they are a bit controversial. ADMINISTRATOR: Yes, we do provide them. We don’t let morals, ethics, human decency or any other such outmoded considerations stand in the way of profit. Why, are you pregnant? CLIENT: Yes, I just got the report from my...

    “Vote like your lady parts depend on it” — said a slogan posted for a time on Barack Obama’s campaign website. Do women really vote with their “lady parts?” A new study reported on — and then pulled from — CNN’s website claims that “during the fertile time of the month, when levels of the hormone estrogen are high, single women appeared more likely to vote for Obama and committed women appeared more likely to vote for Romney, by a margin of at least 20 percent.” One of the researchers, Kristina Durante of the University of Texas, San Antonio, theorizes...

    Muskego - Police are investigating an incident in which an Obama campaign sign was set ablaze, likely with a flammable liquid, in the yard of a Muskego home last weekend. Obama's name could still be seen in a corner of the melted sign, but it otherwise almost entirely burned up, even leaving some spots of blackened grass on the North Shore Road home of Bill Schuele. Authorities believe a small amount of a flammable liquid, such as gasoline, was used to help ignite the fire about 11 p.m. Saturday. A car driven by the suspected arsonist was seen by a...

  • 8,803,335: Another New Record for Disability—Up 975 Per Day Under Obama

    cnsnews.com ^ | October 25, 2012 | Terence P. Jeffrey
    (CNSNews.com) - The number of American workers collecting federal disability insurance benefits hit yet another record high in October, according to the Social Security Administration. This month 8,803,335 disabled workers are collecting benefits, up from the previous record of 8,786,049 set in September. In February 2009, the first full month after President Barack Obama took office, there were 7,469,240 workers collecting federal disability insurance. Thus, so far in Obama’s term, the number of workers collecting disability has increased by 1,334,095. That works out to a net increase of about 29,646 per month (1,334,095 divided by 45 months), or an average...

    Politico.com ^ | 10/25/12 | Jonathan Martin
    Adding another wild-card to the 2012 campaign’s final days, a former aide to Vice President Joe Biden has written a tell-all Washington memoir in which he lacerates the former Delaware senator as an “egomaniacal autocrat” who was “determined to manage his staff through fear.” The book is hardly an objective study of the vice president, however. Author Jeff Connaughton, a Biden Senate staffer turned lobbyist, is by his own admission deeply disillusioned with the capital and embittered about his experience with the man who inspired him to enter politics. Connaughton wrote “The Payoff,” which came out last month, in the...

    ...Is it just me, or is this problem that “arises every election” one where malfunctioning machines always seem to err in favor of Democrats? Other questions are raised. How many people voted for Romney in Bur-Mil Park and didn’t even notice their votes were switched? How many of Al Gore’s other slightly less charming relatives occupy polling stations around America? And can they be numerous enough so that the election can be “corrected” in favor of Hope and Change the Vote? This is why I never liked the idea of electronic voting machines. Sure, after the stolen 2000 election (from...

    50 year old manure spreader. Cannot verify brand. It is said to have been produced in Kenya. It was used for a few years in Indonesia before being smuggled into the US via Hawaii. Of questionable pedigree. Does not appear to have ever been worked hard. Apparently, it was pampered by various owners over the years. It doesn't work very often, but when it does it can sling sh*t for amazing distances. I am hoping to retire the manure spreader this November. I really don't want it hanging around getting in the way. I would prefer a foreign buyer...
