Rhetorical question mark

Here is a quote I found about the latest perversion of their so-called “family values“!

What it means for a lawmaker to be “pro-life” is not a rhetorical question any more. The refusal of Senate Republicans, nearly all of whom identify as pro-life, to support the 9/11 First Responders bill, also known as the James Zadroga bill—a measure that would provide funding for healthcare for firefighters, police and others who became ill as a result of their 9/11 related work—gives this question new urgency.

The shameful spectacle of antiabortion Republicans preventing, as of this writing, the possibility of even a vote for this measure before the holiday recess also makes clear that this movement has gone beyond  its historic valuing of  the life of a fetus over that of a woman.  Now it is mainly the male 9/11 workers whose lives are apparently expendable, because they cannot afford their own health care.

Let’s face it, they are anti-everything but themselves! Most of all to them human life is cheap and it is more often cheapened by their narrow-minded politics than not!

Sometimes the image is everything, leaving little to interpretation

TPM, which is a serious Web news site did this image snip job with a light hearted interpretation, but a deadly accurate one. So here’s the image which I snipped from HuffPo:

Ain’t  it the barking truth!

I protest how CBC management has behaved in this case!

Heather Mallick, Toronto writer, by Michelle Q...

I was upset this morning after reading this article in the NY Times.

Boss Is Not Amused After Columnist’s Humor Brings a Retort From Fox News

What do retorts from Fox News have to do with the posting policies of cbc.ca, a national Canadian web site. So I wrote this email to the CBC Ombudsman this morning:

Sir,

Why has CBC management removed all links to the Heather Mallick opinion article of Sept 5 about Sarah Palin?

Opinions of all colours are expected wherever freedom of expression is suggested. Omissions or errors in editing are not a sufficient reason to remove an article from the CBC.ca site in my humble opinion.

I don’t particularly care what Ms. Mallick said about Governor Palin. By accepting, without blinking, the invitation to become Senator McCain’s VP running mate, Governor Palin opened the opinion floodgates. In fact, she has been quite loquacious herself on the hustings with her opinions and evasions.

But CBC management, in its craven way, has withdrawn Ms. Mallick’s opinion because it received 300+ complaints from “frothing at the mouth” supporters of Gov. Palin. They have a right to their own opinions but surely CBC management oversteps its role when it cuts links to an article posted on its national web site because of their complaints.

Free expression of opinions should be the basic rule. As a Canadian taxpayer I expect even handed treatment of opinions expressed by Canadians. Shame on you!!!

Once again a Canadian institution gives in to the bleating complaints of extreme opinion makers in the US. What a shame, what a travesty of freedom of expression!
