I've recently started suggesting that the "progressives" who are anti-carnivore would be perfectly happy if I ate fetal animals--they're not real cows and pigs.

Yep. It's a woman's right to abort if she wants to. Fine.

Except in the case of a chromosomal defect.

Then, apparently, it's an "extinction event."
Down's Syndrome people risk 'extinction' at the hands of science, fear and ignorance

Quote:
But what do most women do when their baby tests positive for Down’s? They abort. Around 90 per cent of pregnancies that involve the condition end in a termination. In 2014, 693 abortions were carried out for this reason – a jump of 34 per cent since 2011. The rise is blamed on increased access to blood tests via private clinics. American campaigners warn of the risk of "extinction". In Denmark, the head of a midwife association blandly told a newspaper: "When you can discover almost all the foetuses with Down Syndrome, then we are approaching a situation in which almost all of them will be aborted."
M'bold.

So, which is it?

The hypocrisy is stunning.

Gotta love a good, old fashioned Progressive tax policy...

For Cam Newton, Adding Super Tax Insult to Super Bowl Injury

Quote:
Now let’s look at the tax implication for Cam Newton.

If the Panthers win the Super Bowl, Newton will earn another $102,000 in playoff bonuses, but if they lose he will only net another $51,000. The Panthers will have about 206 total duty days during 2016, including the playoffs, preseason, regular season and organized team activities (OTAs), which Newton must attend or lose $500,000. Seven of those duty days will be in California for the Super Bowl… To determine what Newton will pay California on his Super Bowl winnings alone, …looking at the seven days Newton will spend in California this week for Super Bowl 50, he will pay the state $101,600 on $102,000 of income should the Panthers be victorious or $101,360 on $51,000 should they lose.


So what was Cam’s marginal tax rate for playing yesterday?

Losing means his effective tax rate will be a whopping 198.8%. Oh yeah, he will also pay the IRS 40.5% on his earnings.


In other words, Cam Newton will pay a Barack Obama-style flat tax. The rules are very simple. The government simply takes all your money.
M'bold.

Further:

Quote:
However, if the Super Bowl was in a city like Dallas and Miami, there would have been no additional tax.
Ouch...

A shining example of Progressive gov't.

Venezuela is on the brink of a complete economic collapse

Quote:
The only question now is whether Venezuela's government or economy will completely collapse first.

The key word there is "completely." Both are well into their death throes.
M'bold.

More:

Quote:
Even triple-digit oil prices, as Justin Fox points out, weren't enough to keep Venezuela out of the red when it was spending more on its people but producing less crude. So it did what all poorly run states do when the money runs out: It printed some more. And by "some," I mean a lot, a lot more. That, in turn, became more "a lots" than you can count once oil started collapsing in mid-2014. The result of all this money-printing, as you can see below, is that Venezuela's currency has, by black market rates, lost 93 percent of its value in the past two years.

It turns out Lenin was wrong. Debauching the currency is actually the best way to destroy the socialist, not the capitalist, system.

Venezuela asks more than 100 malls to close to save electricity

Quote:
Shops in malls across Venezuela have closed their doors early to comply with a government electricity rationing order.

Venezuela’s socialist government is asking more than 100 malls to close or generate their own power four hours each day...

Don't blame Chavez--his dictatorial intentions were good. "Progressives" are only judged on their intentions, not the hideous fallout of their policies.

Maybe that's why PM Pompadour admires Chinese dictatorships so much...

So...

In "real" science, you develop a hypothesis, collect empirical data & then see if that data supports your hypothesis. Or not.

In Progressive science, there's no need to go through that whole time consuming, resource eating data collection process. Progressive's already knows they're correct & merely need to go to the courts to "prove" it...

How the progressive left intends to use the courts to harass those who don’t agree with them on the climate

Quote:
On February 10th, the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (“ACS”) hosted a panel discussion on legal approaches and activities associated with “combatting” climate change through legal action. Topics covered were RICO prosecutions, climate torts and the Supreme Court’s stay of the Clean Power Plan. The session was organized and moderated by Lisa Heinzerling, the attorney who was brought into EPA to manage the legal analysis of how to extend the agency’s powers beyond the limits of the Clean Air Act in order to implement the environmental activists’ climate agenda, and who had previously won the Massachusetts v. EPA case enabling EPA to regulate carbon dioxide.

The Law, Lawsuits, And Climate Change

Quote:
David Schnare wrote about how the progressive left intends to use the courts to harass those who don’t agree with them on the climate. His focus was on corporations and special interest groups using such legal devices as RICO to intimidate, harass, and even silence those with different opinions. The reality is they are all tantamount to suppression of speech, which creates the paradox of using the law to defeat free speech; the most fundamental of human rights.
Tip for the Progressives: If you cannot find any empirical, measurable evidence to support your hypothesis of Global Warming, your hypothesis has failed.

Hour 1: Liberals Respond to Antonin Scalia’s Death with Hatred, Mockery, Joy

Quote:
Within one hour of news breaking that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in his sleep, progressives on Twitter put politics before basic human decency–both celebrating and mocking his death.

Further on that shiny example of Progressivism, Venezuela.

Venezuela Declares Another Emergency: It Has Run Out of Food

Quote:
Venezuela’s opposition legislature has declared a “nutritional emergency,” proclaiming that the country simply does not have enough food to feed its population. The move comes after years of socialist rationing and shortages that forced millions to wait on lines lasting as long as six hours for a pint of milk, a bag of flour, or carton of cooking oil.
