Voters like the idea of deciding about abortion


 (My new American Thinker post)

The Democrats talk about about choice when it comes to abortion.  It appears that voters agree with that or in the sense that they want voters to choose the future of abortion policies.

This is a fascinating post by Scott Rasmussen:    

To get a true sense of public opinion, it’s necessary to ask polling questions without D.C. political jargon. When you do that, it becomes clear that most voters will be okay with the result of overturning Roe.

With Roe in place, the abortion laws are set by judges. However, 65 percent of voters think abortion laws should be established by voters and their elected representatives. That’s exactly what will happen if Roe is overturned. Just 18 percent want to preserve the status quo.     

If Democrats truly believed voters were with them on this issue, they would celebrate this triumph of democracy. 

Instead, they are outraged. Perhaps they recognize that overturning Roe will call their bluff and highlight the unpopularity of their policy desires.

Call their bluff?  Let's do it and see what they actually say when an abortion bill comes up in the state legislature.

I've argued for some time that Roe gave Texas Hispanic Democrats a curtain to hide behind.  They would often say that they didn't believe in abortion but Roe is the law of the land.

If Roe is overturned, they can't say that anymore.  They will have to vote  "yes" or "no" on abortion and more specifically abortion after 12 or 15 weeks.    

The Democrats know that, which is why they want abortion decided by judges.

A word about May 14






We remember May 14:

US history:     On this day in 1787, the story of the US changed when delegates from the 13 states met to amend The Articles of Confederation.    The sessions did not really start until May 25 when everybody was in town.   By September, the gathering produced the US Constitution that we know today.    It was subsequently sent to the states for ratification.   The Bill of Rights, or the first 10 Amendments, were added between 1789-1791. 

The story of the West:    The Louisiana Purchase was completed in 1803.    A year later, Lewis & Clark began their mission to explore the lands of the West.   The men returned on September 23rd, 1806, after almost two and a half years.  They brought back tremendous information that led to the settlement of the West.  It must have been an eye popping trip for the men in that mission.

Music files:    Time flies and we recall that Frank Sinatra died many years ago this week.  It seems like it was yesterday that I was driving and heard the story about Sinatra's death on the radio.

Rock groups:   We remember Jack Bruce who was born on this day in 1943.   He died in 2014.  CREAM was one of the super groups of the 1960s.  They were Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce.    

Hall of Fame: We remember today Atanasio (Rigal) Perez, the pride of Ciego de Avila and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.  He was born in 1942.  Tony broke with the Cincinnati Reds in the summer of 1964.   He went on to have a wonderful major league career:  2,777 games, 2,732 hits, 379 HR, 1,659 RBI and a very good .279 career batting average.

Baseball notes:    We say happy birthday to Dennis Martinez who was born in Nicaragua on this day in 1954.    From 1976 to 1997, Dennis was a very successful major league pitcher:  245 wins, 3.70 ERA, 122 complete games and a perfect game in 1991.

We say happy birthday to Dennis Martinez who was born in Nicaragua on this day in 1954.  

From 1976 to 1997, Dennis was a very successful major league pitcher:  245 wins, 3.70 ERA, 122 complete games and a perfect game in 1991.

Dennis broke with the Orioles in 1976 and played for Baltimore in the 1979 and 1983 World Series.   

He was eventually traded to Montreal where he enjoyed some very good years with the Expos:  100-72 with a 3.06 ERA.

His 245 wins are # 2 among Latino pitchers.
 

Happy # 80 Tony Perez

We remember today Atanasio (Rigal) Perez, the pride of Ciego de Avila and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.  He was born in 1942. 
Tony broke with the Cincinnati Reds in the summer of 1964.   He went on to have a wonderful major league career:  2,777 games, 2,732 hits, 379 HR, 1,659 RBI and a very good .279 career batting average
Tony’s career was more than numbers. He was the steady bat in a Reds’ team that won 4 NL titles and the World Series in 1975 and 1976. 
Willie Stargell spoke for many of his fellow players:  
““With men in scoring position and the game on the line…Tony’s the last guy an opponent wanted to see.”” 
Tony had many big hits for the Reds Machine in the 1970s.   He is best remembered for a big homer in game 7 of the 1975 World Series.    After playing, Tony was a coach and baseball executive.
