Shame on the Democrats for playing "the race card"


We are down to the last week and the Democrats are running scared.  

How scared are the Democrats.   Check this from J W Peters of The NY Times:
"In the final days before the election, Democrats in the closest Senate races across the South are turning to racially charged messages — invoking Trayvon Martin’s death, the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., and Jim Crow-era segregation — to jolt African-Americans into voting and stop a Republican takeover in Washington."
 This is shameful but will any Democrat call on the party to stop?   

The party's problem is a lack of results, specially if you are African American.  

It's time for President Clinton, the party statesman, to say that these tactics are wrong and have no place in our politics.

Beyond politics, these activities divide the county by poising the well.   We don't need more division.

Happy # 75 to Grace Slick


Grace Slick is 75 and that makes everyone feel old.  

She was the face of Jefferson Airplane, the legendary group from the 1960s that became Jefferson Starship in the 1970s.     Her most famous performance was "White rabbit", a song with a reference to drug use:



WHITE RABBIT

"One pill makes you larger And one pill makes you small,

And the ones that mother gives you

Don't do anything at all.

Go ask Alice When she's ten feet tall. 

And if you go chasing rabbits And you know you're going to fall,

Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar

Has given you the call. 
Call Alice When she was just small. 


When the men on the chessboard Get up and tell you where to go

And you've just had some kind of mushroom

And your mind is moving low.

Go ask Alice  I think she'll know.

When logic and proportion Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head""

Abortion: The Last Thing Wendy Davis Wants to Be Talking About

Another day, another New York Times editorial to criticize.  Today, we take issue with the one about abortion and Texas:
With a brief unsigned order on Tuesday, the Supreme Court acted to prevent Texas from enforcing two key parts of the state’s 2013 package of extreme new abortion restrictions.
While the legal battle over the provisions continues, and is very likely to land back at the court before long, the order was a significant victory for women in Texas.
The important result is that it will allow more clinics offering safe and legal abortion care to continue operating pending a final court resolution.
Again, the Texas law is not about taking the right of an abortion from women.  Texas cannot do that.  The law was really about the quality of medical care and doctors, as Kristen Powers wrote months ago:
So no, I don’t stand with Wendy.
Nor do most women, as it turns out. According to a June National Journal poll, 50 percent of women support, and 43 percent oppose, a ban on abortion after 20 weeks, except in cases of rape and incest.   
One can assume I am also not the only woman in America who is really tiring of the Wendys of the world claiming to represent “women’s rights” in their quest to mainstream a medical procedure—elective late-term abortion—that most of the civilized world finds barbaric and abhorrent.
In many European countries, you can’t get an abortion past 12 weeks, except in narrow circumstances. Gallup reported in January that 80 percent of Americans think abortion should be illegal in the third trimester, and 64 percent think it should be illegal in the second trimester.
Last but not least, Democrat candidate for governor and current state senator Wendy Davis is the last person in the world who wants abortion in the campaign.  

As we wrote a few months ago, Miss Davis's website does not highlight her abortion battle from last year.  You will see lots of issues highlighted, but abortion is not among them.  

For example, she tells voters about a "filibuster," but it's one about slashing "$5 billion from our public schools"!

This is how she gets around the abortion issue on her website:
Wendy Davis stood for nearly 13 hours to fight against Austin insiders trying to close 60 health centers across Texas that once provided hundreds of thousands of women with care they can’t get elsewhere.
Where is the comment about "reproductive health care"?

Maybe Senator Davis agrees with the Supreme Court.  I can assure that abortion is the last thing that she wants to talk about at this stage of the campaign.
