Okay…I’m swimming against the tide on this one.
This from Newsmax:
Ronald Reagan’s elder son Michael Reagan declares that some tea party candidates were “absolutely fools” for getting involved in moral controversies instead of concentrating on economic issues. Observers in the media have been saying that the GOP lost the presidency and the Senate because the party put up too many tea party candidates. “Social issues are important. I get involved in social issues, but those are not the issues that unite a country. What unites the country are, in fact, the economic issues.”
Oh..now it’s the Tea Party’s fault that Mitt lost the election.
Shame on you Michael.
“From what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” said Akin said of pregnancy caused by rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist.”
People took that sentence and twisted it to make the man sound like he approved of rape. That’s not what he said.
This is astounding. I did NOT take it that way. I took it that he meant that so many sexual encounters are called rape, and years later the girl says…”Oh, he really didn’t rape me.” And the guy, most of the time black, does hard time. Sometimes it’s a black stripper claiming boys raped her at a university party…remember that one? That wasn’t a legitimate rape.
In the case of ‘legitimate rape” which means a rape did occur, as terrible as that is, and BECAUSE it is terrible, the woman’s nerves are such that the baby aborts naturally. Even if a woman is having a hard time with loss of a job or a parent or another child, that does happen. I know a lot of women who have lost babies due to nerves.
And the REASON we are in such an economical mess is because morality has been thrown OUT the window. Just look at Wall Street. Look at our Generals, and politicians, and President. We are a morally bankrupt nation.
We now have more single moms being supported by the state, and kids growing up without dads, and so the taxpayer has to pay for all these kids, and that’s why Mitt lost. All those moms, many of them Latino and black, need money–and so, I just don’t get it. Morality is a big part of our economic problem.
Mitt Romney ran on nothing BUT the economy. It was the GOP, that ran all Tea Party candidates out of their jobs. Even the great Allen West–lost. (And yes, I capitalize Tea Party)
The Tea Party candidates, all of them….Were more trustworthy than any of the GOPs now in power. And that’s why they..the GOP AND the Democrats MUST get rid of them. They stand for the Constitution.
Remember Michelle Bachmann? She was the best candidate in the primaries, but they trashed her day in and day out…on purpose. She was a great Tea Party candidate. They gave her very few questions to answer during the debates.
The Tea Party is the new Jew.
The GOP wanted this guy removed. He did not fit into their global plans. obviously Michael Reagan has bought on to the GOP globalization plans….or he really thinks religion and morality should never be discussed when running for office.
Somehow, I remember his dad talking about God….a LOT. Maybe Michael wasn’t listening…or worst…he wants to remain in power makers of money…Funny, I remember a Peggy Noonan doing exactly the same thing.
I almost thought…this was April’s Fool day…or Friday the 13th…but no, it’s just another sad day in Obamaland.
I’ve always admired Michael Reagan. You can’t help but like him when you read his books. Michael is a son that Ronald Reagan I’m sure was immensely proud of. Here he describes the horrible event that happened to him as a boy…when a man, took his innocence away as a child.
Nobody Knows, but Nobody can guess, that this stuff happens a lot more than people think. In my family alone, we’ve had two incidents that left unbearable scars on the victims. Kids don’t talk, but they are angry, and depressed, and it can color their whole life.
Most every American, when they heard the story of the man in Texas who killed the man who was molesting his little girl said…they would react the very same way.
The trouble is, most child molesters are trusted members of the community as we see time and again. They are fantastic liars. Nobody Thinks that Michael Jackson was a child abuser..they all sound the same, when they deny whatever the kids say happened. The recent trial of Jerry Sandusky was a big wake-up call as to how one man can molest children forever without ever being stopped. His adopted son said, “I really wanted to die.” after all the touching and rubbing. Matt was one of his six adopted children. I don’t think there was a sane person in the country who was not happy about his sentence.
“I LOVE the children! They love me! I never hurt them! ” etc, etc… They “Love” the children, and they do…but when they rape them, they should be locked up. Really…look at that guy. You would never suspect him of such a thing.
Thank goodness Michael finally told his parents, and for him to reveal this to the world is incredibly brave. The more people who come forward about it, the more we can make this kind of thing, what it really is: an incredible horrific crime. They should all be locked up…for good…and in my Nobody Opinion: forever.
