Sarah Silverman: Right only cares about lives of ‘fetuses and rich white men’

Bothered by the falsehood that conservatives care less about humanity than bitter lefties like her?

If only she could muster that much anger for comedians who joke about murdering the unborn.

  • Pulchritudinous

    Clinging to stereotypes are we? Pathetic.

  • http://blog.khelek.us Brian Johnson

    Interesting choice of words — OTHER human lives as passionately as they do fetuses & rich white men

    So, a hyper-pro-abortionist confesses that a “fetus” is a human life . Good to know.

      And…What color of skin does Sarah SilverMAN currently reside in???

      What a complete Douched Hag…er…Bag…..

      That’s the first thing I thought of, as well.

  • Richard J Sunkle

    Yet this idiot probably worships Margret (Kill the black human pollution) Sanger. If nothing else, Silverman destroys any stereotype of the crafty Jew cause she’s a freakin moron.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Bother her less? Implying that even if the Right acquiesced to her misconceived notions, she would STILL be bothered somewhat………… Sounds to me like she is just hateful

    At least she’s evolving and not using the term n*gger when tweeting now.

  • $30423294

    I will take her at her word, and presume she is sincere.

    Sarah, there are government programs and non-government organizations world wide whose members advocate for born children in need and vulnerable adults.

    The glaring absence in advocacy is the lack of dedicated effort to protect the unborn.

    We on the “right” are filling a glaring gap the secular world has left unfilled.

    When we speak on behalf of the unborn, you scold us and tell us that before you will allow us any voice whatsoever, we must first create yet another organization to advocate for the lives of born children and vulnerable adults. Again, a job that already has many dedicated missionaries.

    It sure sounds to us that you are merely trying to prevent the formation of any organized defense of the unborn.

    Why? Deep down, why?

    You have some soul searching to do.

  • KayGee

    The whole pro-life movement would be more believable if they were advocating for comprehensive socialized maternity and childcare while simultaneously advocating for the shuttering of abortion clinics across the nation. Then perhaps the pro-life message would be more believable. At a time when the US tops the charts as one of the costliest countries in the world to have a healthy baby with proper medical assistance, it’s not hard to figure out why so many mothers might be afraid. Currently, the pro-life movement makes no mention of how a woman that finds herself considering an abortion for lack of resources can get the support she needs to safely bring a child into this world with money she doesn’t have. Oh sure, there are “crisis pregnancy centers” that can be called in order to convince one NOT to have an abortion, but what about a polar opposite to planned parenthood clinics in terms of start-to-finish maternity care? It would make a lot more sense if limiting access to abortion went hand in hand with increasing the affordability and availability of free healthcare clinics and maternity services for disadvantaged mothers that would be most likely to opt for an abortion in the first place. Just a thought. I mean, these poor women could just roll the dice with zero prenatal care and a home birth, otherwise they’re going to be forced out on to the streets after the bills roll in. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/01/health/american-way-of-birth-costliest-in-the-world.html

    • RememberSekhmet

      The women who opt for adoption often find their bills covered in full or part by the family who plans to adopt. Crisis pregnancy centers help with clothing and bills as well for women who want to keep the baby.

      • aztectrumpet

        not to mention that if you don’t want to pay for it, you can be more responsible and not get pregnant.

    • $30423294

      My goodness, it’s like you have taken hostages and are issuing demands. You are threatening — first we established socialized childcare, and only then you might consider letting those babies — your hostages — live?

      Until then, you’re going to start throwing bodies out the door?

      My God you people on the left have lost control of your message.

      • Ironhawk86

        My sentimets exactly. What these sick b@$tards have done is extorted the taxpayers with innocent lives. I really hope hell is real cause there will be a special place in it just for those sick, stupid f#cks.

    • halflight

      FYI– My sister, an M.D., volunteers her services (8 hours a week) to a “Crisis Pregnancy Center” that DOES provide free medical care for pregnant women. Many centers DO provide those services, or refer expectant mothers to pro-life physicians who provide those services for free or at a reduced cost.

      No, the solution to every social problem IS NOT more government involvement.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      “if they were advocating for comprehensive socialized maternity and childcare”

      Essentially you mean socialism don’t you? I mean, you DO say it right there………

      Or maybe the Pro-Life movement IS more believable (to rational people) because what they advocate is a PERSONAL responsibility to NOT put themselves into situations which would lead to them to HAVE to have to make a CHOICE between having an abortion and giving birth……………

      If you want to advocate SOCIALized materinity and childcare for a woman’s baby, then how about you show some consistency and advocate SOCIETY be able to have some input in that woman’s procreation activities as well……….

    • Guest

      You’ve convinced me, it’s far more humane to destroy the unborn child…. NOT!

    • anjullyn

      Don’t use your own conscience or rational mind to comment…no, use the NYT, who advocate for anything to make America more like…and insert any socialist country you’d like. If you don’t understand and empathize with the pain that MUTILATED babies feel as they’re aborted, then who really is the one that is more humane? Liberal or conservative? I again ask the question to pro-aborts…if your life ends when your heart stops beating, why doesn’t life begin when it starts beating?

      • ObamaFail

        Because it’s too inconvenient to liberal women to take care of a baby that they brought into existence by spreading their legs. They don’t believe life starts until a person can start drawing welfare, or can be claimed on welfare checks.

    • Gallatin

      “At a time when the US tops the charts as one of the costliest countries in the world”

      “Note: Amounts paid are the actual payments agreed to by insurance companies or other payers for services, and are lower than billed charges.”

      If you are using the chart below your ranting and raving to support your argument that the U.S. is the costliest you better look again. The chart says to me that insurance companies and other payers in the U.S. are willing to foot more of the bill. I interpret the chart as saying that women in other countries end up paying more of the bill for childbirth.

      • SWalkerTTU

        Possibly, but the bills are much, much smaller outside the US, and usually regulated by the government in some way. Do you know how much your chosen hospital charges for services? Do you think they’ll tell you before you actually require service?

        • Gallatin

          Do you know how much your chosen hospital charges for services?

          Do you?

          Do you think they’ll tell you before you actually require service?

          I’ll find out at some point.

          So if all the charges are “hidden” and we are not told, how do you know the charges are less elsewhere in the world?

      • SWalkerTTU

        In Britain, the mother’s personal charges are definitely lower as all medical services are paid for through taxes — she doesn’t pay even a tuppence out-of-pocket. She has to pay upward of 20% VAT on a lot of things, and possibly income taxes, but nothing out of pocket for medical services.

        • Gallatin

          So paying a 20% VAT tax and an income tax is less expensive and better than being responsible for your own medical costs? I think not.

    • Joe W.

      Why do they get pregnant in the first place, then. There are a zillion ways to avoid a pregnancy. As the old saying goes, “If you want to play the tune, you gotta pay the band”.

      • trixiewoobeans

        No, they play the tune, then kill the band.

      • Bathing Suit Area

        That’s why I’m in favor of shutting down the fire department. Instead I’ll just ask people why they let their house catch fire in the first place? There are a zillion ways to prevent it. Take some responsibility and watch everything burn.

        • SWalkerTTU

          That’s not the libertarian way. No, it should be like they used to do in Rome: negotiate a fee while the property burns.

        • Joe W.

          Idiot. So you equate casual sex with an accidental fire??? Are you really that stupid. Rhetorical question, of course….

          • SWalkerTTU

            You’ve not heard of “accidental” pregnancies? Those sometimes happen even in marriages.

          • Ironhawk86

            Guess you really are that stupid. No shock there.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            In the analogy, sex would equate to using a stove, gas heating, electricity, or anything like that which could result in a fire.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      “comprehensive socialized maternity and childcare”
      Ok, I understand that they believe in socialized childcare, that is you have neither control nor responsibility for child rearing as they become property of the state.
      But that implies that libertines believe in socialized maternity, so the state is to determine when women give birth, get pregnant and with whom. Are they renting these socialized women out, or just assigning them sexual partners based on a government database while monitoring their ovulation cycles? Are the assignments to be random or designed for some eugenics plan. I think there is more to this concept than KayGee is letting us know.

    • nc

      Oh please. My friend’s two grandchildren were born in our area’s highest rated hospital, funded 100% by the taxpayers because neither her son or his baby mama had any insurance. No one has their babies in the street, or haven’t you noticed?

    • Squirrel!

      Um, it’s called Medicaid. It covers ob/gyn’s AND delivery. Our tax dollars pay for that so yeah, socialized medicine.

      • SWalkerTTU

        Not always, or at least not always all of the cost. What Medicaid pays depends on the state since the state sets the payment rules.

        • Squirrel!

          Well, the state I’m familiar with is one of those supposedly poor, lowly southern red states. So does that mean the blue, ultra rich, northern liberal states don’t take care of their disadvantaged? I admit I’m being a smart alleck about it, but since southern states are supposedly the bottom of the economic barrel and conservatives so don’t care about the poor then why would that be one that covers 100% of medical costs through medicaid? I don’t dispute this perhaps being a state by state scenario which I admittedly didn’t consider when posting.

          • SWalkerTTU

            There may be certain classes of services and beneficiaries that Federal law requires to be completely paid for. I think, from scanning Texas’ plan, that pregnancy for the categorically needy is covered.

            Personally, I wouldn’t think that Texas would pay one penny more than they were absolutely required to pay, but I don’t have the time to do a complete survey of the state’s plan, especially since the online version hasn’t been formatted for some years. The state didn’t even bother to have someone re-type the document; instead they just scanned in stuff, some of which dates to the 1970s. How chintzy can you get?

          • Squirrel!

            That’s probably what it is then – depends on the classification of medical services. I’m not familiar with how it all works, and you’re better than me because I’m not looking anything up. I just know what I know about one state. So…. essentially, KayGee has an invalid point on this.

          • SWalkerTTU

            The document is hard to quickly grasp because it’s been left to fester for so long. KayGee’s point may not be totally invalid, but it likely is. Clear communication of information is essential to understanding.

          • Squirrel!

            You know, I like you. You’ve actually had a sane discussion that applies to thoughts & comments here. That’s not typically what I see on the comment threads when it comes to the opposition. I sincerely appreciate your contribution even if I may not agree.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      I love how people look at the cost of childbirth and conclude that abortion is a get rich quick scheme for doctors.

      • SWalkerTTU

        Really. Most OB/GYNs won’t do them as much out of fear of repercussions as out of lack of profit, I’d say.

        • Squirrel!

          I’m going to opine that most people who practice obstetrics do it to care for babies in the womb and to bring life into the world. Doesn’t make much sense to practice obstetrics with the goal of snuffing out the life in the womb.

          • SWalkerTTU

            The other part of that is “gynecology” which is about women’s health. An abortionist has to at least be a gynecologist, I’d think. In any case, don’t rule out the profit motive, and don’t ascribe negative intent to people who perform abortions.

          • Squirrel!

            I don’t rule out the gynecology part, but not all gynecologists practice obstetrics either. I also don’t consider abortion a factor of women’s reproductive health. That may be the case in some of the scenarios, but we know that isn’t the majority. Abortions can be a detriment to a woman’s health, both physically & emotionally. I don’t doubt that many do it for profit (that’s many years of high dollar schooling not to want to make a dollar), but I tend to think many also get into the medical field because they want to help people and in this case, because they want women to have healthy babies.

      It’s not all that surprising given that whites are now basically taught to hate themselves with “white privilege” being shoved down our throats at school and in the media. So I’d guess she DOES hate her father and herself that much.

    Dana Loesch ‏@DLoesch

    @SarahKSilverman So that’s why you oppose the increase in medical standards contained in the TX legislation? Do you think before you Tweet?

    Got-dammit! FINE, ok, FINE!! I admit it!

    …I have a serious crush on Dana Loesch. I never like anybody in politics, ever…

    • SWalkerTTU

      Then why start with her?

      You do understand that the real purpose of increasing the medical standards here in Texas was to raise the bar high enough that few clinics could actually meet them, right?

      At the same time, raising the standards would not have prevented a situation like Gosnell’s House of Horrors in Philadelphia, because he never intended to abide by the standards that already existed. What raising the standards does is put honest operators out of business, but leave the outlaws to continue practicing because there aren’t enough inspectors to check all of them. Now I understand y’all’s arguments about government regulation, and to some extent I agree with them, but there’s a difference between setting a reasonable floor on standards, lowering them to the point of unsafety, or raising them so high as to destroy an industry.

      • Damien Johnson

        How are they honest if their shit isn’t clean and up to code to begin with?

        • Bathing Suit Area

          It is up to code to begin with, that’s why they’re changing the codes so they’ll have an excuse to shut them down.

          • Damien Johnson

            No they weren’t. They were up to whatever relaxed standards were in place at the time. Giving a fourteen month window to upgrade is hardly an excuse to shut down.

      • Dragomance

        People who kill for a living aren’t exactly “honest”.As to your main point,it would only close them down if they do not get their clinics up to the standard by September 2014.14 months to tear down a few walls to allow room for medical personnel and their equipment should something go wrong and to basically make sure all their ducks are in order.

        If they can’t do that in 14 months only THEN would they be closed down.Also,while you say there would still be the outlaws,they know of each of these clinics and will at the very least check up on them by September 2014.

        • SWalkerTTU

          There are plenty of honest soldiers. Their job is, in the main, to kill for a living. If they didn’t — or weren’t prepared to — they’d serve no purpose as soldiers.

          Planned Parenthood, taken as an example, is entirely honest about what they do — more so than the politicians who want to do away them but aren’t brazen enough to ban them outright — because they make absolutely no bones about who they are or what they do, and they abide by the law as they understand it. That’s consistency and honesty, even if you don’t agree with what they’re doing.

          Still, you shouldn’t think there’s enough cash in the abortion services industry to finance the required capital improvements at every clinic. Most providers have to work on a strict cash basis with low margins because insurance for abortions is, as I understand it, quite hard to obtain, and very often the women choosing abortion don’t have the financial resources to either bear the child or pay high fees.

          Only when it comes to abortion will right-wingers push for MORE government intrusion into medicine and government regulation. That’s inconsistency, and hypocrisy at its finest.

          • Ironhawk86

            So you’re honestly comparing our brave soldiers to a scumbag like Gosnell. You deserve to die HORRIBLY

    • SWalkerTTU

      Of course, while Texas is raising the regulations on abortion providers, it’s keeping regulation on chemical storage facilities as low as ever.

      I think instead of abortion or suicide, women who don’t want to bear children will just move across the street from chemical storage facilities or oil refineries and wait for them to blow up. They’d certainly have a shorter wait.

      • Elena0412

        Any chance YOU’RE mother may want a really late-term troll abortion?

        • SWalkerTTU

          No, none at all. She actually wanted me. As the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for; you may get it.”

          I’m not a troll, either, just providing an alternate view with a touch of black humor and hyperbole.

          • Elena0412

            You missed on both counts.

      • Dragomance

        You should think before posting such vile hyperbole.I,not sure if you have the intelligence for this know the other effects of chemicals.Yet it appears to be your substitute for the coat hanger.

        • SWalkerTTU

          You missed the point. I said “…wait for the plant to blow up.” I did think before posting that, and stand by what I meant by it. Personally, I’d rather have women who feel they need to terminate their pregnancies do it in a safe place under the care of trained medical professionals who do their work at a reasonable price. When that option is removed, waiting for a chemical plant to blow up — or even strapping dynamite to one’s torso and marching into a Baptist church on a Sunday morning — is a much more viable option than it would have been. It’s not an option I’d choose myself nor would I counsel it, but it’s an option nonetheless.

          Of course, living by a chemical plant wouldn’t be nearly so hazardous if the state actually had proper regulation, or if the ownership had any concern for its neighbors, but we can’t ask for any of that, now can we?

      • Caleb Herod

        The grieving families of West, TX appreciate your heart-felt concern.

        • SWalkerTTU

          Not much appreciation for black humor here, eh? What happened in West was not a tragedy — not classically — because the neighbors of that plant were the victims of the owner’s hubris, not their own. Classically, their situation is pathetic. I’m sorry that happened to them, but given the way things run in this state, it was bound to happen to somebody somewhere at some time. They just drew the short stick on that day. It happened to them, but the worse thing is that it could happen to just about anybody else in the same situation.

          Besides, it’s not so much for me to show them concern as it is their local leadership, the state leadership and the owner of the plant. Not one of them cared so much as to even let the residents know that massive amounts of an explosive were being stored across the street. Me, I just live on the other side of the state.

          • Ironhawk86

        That’s two terribly, terribly dissimilar things. If the chemical storage facilities need to be fixed then they need to be fixed, but as this Gosnell mess came out it’s proven where our priorities need to be.

        • SWalkerTTU

          They do need to be fixed, but they won’t be. This is Texas, where stupidity is as boundless as the horizon; it stretches from border to border but no farther, because as every good Texan knows, there’s nowhere else in the world.

    You liberals don’t care about lives and want to destroy the most helpless that can’t fight back because you all are heartless beings.

    If you worry about women health. You liberals wouldn’t be fighting to make abortion clinics more safer, but you don’t and want abortion to be limitless dirty and without rules.

    You all are disgusting and immoral monsters.

    I think a lot of people here missed the point. Sarah Silverman was not trying to insult rich white men, just right-wingers.

      Austin ain’t Texas, troll.

      • SWalkerTTU

        I don’t live in Austin. I used to, but not these days. Still, last I checked Austin was the capital of the state. The residents may not fit your stereotype of Texas, but they are Texans nonetheless, as am I. I have ancestors who came here before the revolution. I am a liberal, and as pure-D Texas as anybody else — unlike the current darling of Texas conservatives, Ted the Cuban Carpetbagger Canuck Cruz.

        • Joe W.

          Well, Sonny, you bring shame to our Great State, that’s for sure. Thank God y’all are in the minority, too. We keep most of our libs in Austin and the ghettos of Houston & Dallas, as you must know. Most of us Texans wouldn’t p*ss on you if you were on fire.

          • SWalkerTTU

            Most Texans wouldn’t piss on me if I were on fire? Doesn’t that say more worse about other Texans than it does about me? Doesn’t that say that Texans are a bunch of self-centered jerks that hate everyone and everything unlike them?

            You’re probably right.

            There are more liberals around you than you know. Fortunately, we’re smart enough to hide it, unlike you who aren’t smart enough to hide your hatred, disdain and ignorance.

            How’s that?

          • Ironhawk86

            Let’s see. You lie your @$$ off, steal from the taxpayers, and troll this site with a sick sense of pride over just how despicable of a person you are. For what reason SHOULD you still be breathing?

      • SWalkerTTU

        And Texans are supposed to discriminate on the basis of national origin, as in “If you ain’t from Texas, you ain’t sh*t.”

    • Bathing Suit Area

      Yes, we’re using welfare to stop the poor from finding out about those millions of available jobs that’ll pay a living wage and lift their families into the middle class.

      • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

        And welfare is how old now? And nothing has changed.
        And under Obama, the poor are poorer. As are the middle class.
        Spain that!

        • SWalkerTTU

          Jesus said, “The poor you will always have with you.” (Matt. 26:11)

          Welfare is not necessarily intended to solve the problem of poverty, but to ameliorate some of the problems attending poverty. The only thing that can reduce poverty is to have as many people as possible employed at a living wage. Government will not be able to do that on its own.

          • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

            Oh please. That liberal talking point is old.

          • SWalkerTTU

            Which liberal talking point? If you’re talking about the quote from Matthew, yes, it’s about 1,900 years old.

            Here I am, a liberal, discussing the limitations of government intervention, and you come back with that?

            Here’s a question: where do you think poor people would be without public assistance? How you answer will likely say more about you than you’d think or wish to reveal.

            Oh please, that liberal psycho babble … Says more about you, yada yada yada is predictable.
            And the poor on assistance are still poor, and getting poorer, and you can thank Obama for that.
            And the living wage has been raised before, and what had changed?
            Nothing.

          • SWalkerTTU

            CEOs salaries, have changed, for one. They’ve gone up, and faster than either the minimum wage (which is hardly a living wage if you have dependents) or inflation.

          • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

            And you can thank Obama for that.

      I think white conservative women have been so thoroughly brainwashed that they have absolutely no idea of what’s actually in their practical interest. Most white conservative men have been, too, from what I can tell.

      • Conservativesniper

        And you base this erudite observation on what? And there is no such thing as brainwashing. The correct term would be indoctrination.

        • SWalkerTTU

            Elite? Hardly. I could only wish. Instead, I work for a living, and until recently a pittance. The last “elite” in my family was my great-great-grandfather who came out here in 1832. Since then we’ve all had to work and work hard. I may be gifted, but I’m also working-class yet somewhat educated. Believe me, if I were as “elite” as you claimed, this state would be — and would have to be — a very different place. You’re right, I’m all hat and no cattle, because I have no cattle and barely have the hat. I’m a snob? You should know from snobbery.

          • SWalkerTTU

            I believe my countrymen are my brothers and sisters, but only metaphorically. Now, I have been supported by the taxpayers of Texas and Ector County, but only in exchange for services provided.

          • Conservativesniper

            Well then, give me an example of how white women ” have absolutely no idea of what’s actually in their practical interest.”.

          • SWalkerTTU

            I would start with having the state begin to dictate limits on what medical procedures can be performed on them. I would also include not allowing for women a way to claim damages for wage discrimination (Texas’ Fair Pay Act was vetoed).

            A woman supporting conservative positions is in a number of cases advocating diminishing her own rights and opportunities.

            Note, by the way, that I said “white CONSERVATIVE women”, not necessarily white women. You assume too much by leaving that out. Many white women are liberal, and many are moderate or independent, unless of course you meant to say that white women who aren’t conservative aren’t really women, which would mark you as a more than a bit sexist.

          • Conservativesniper

            So, white CONSERVATIVE women are too stupid to figure out what medical procedures they will allow to be performed upon themselves? Do you really believe that?

            If the CONSERVATIVE woman is not satisfied with the salary, she is under no obligation to take the employment. Texas is not a union state.

            Oh and forgive me for not specifying conservative white women. I thought that was understood, since that is the ENTIRE basis of your ‘argument’.

            Good night.

          • SWalkerTTU

            Again, you left the word “conservative” out, thereby extending the argument to ALL white women. I specifically said that for a reason. I also said “allowing the state to dictate”. I would consider any woman, or girl as the law allows, to be sufficiently competent to choose how they’re treated. Many would disagree when it comes to whether or not to terminate a pregnancy.

            You obviously missed the point of the Fair Pay Act. Certainly a woman can decide whether her wages are sufficient for her purposes, but what if she find out later she was paid less than a man working the same job at the same time? Unless she finds out fairly quickly, she has no recourse to recover wages that should have been offered and paid to her.

            And no, you intentionally left out “conservative” so as to turn this discussion into me arguing that white women are stupid. I’m not falling for that.

          • Conservativesniper

            Look idiot, YOUR ENTIRE ARGUMENT is about CONSERVATIVE white women. Nobody is disagreeing with that. NOBODY!!! And nobody is trying to twist your words, you ignoramus.

            Fair Pay Act? what if? what if? what if you were competent enough to follow an argument? Nah, never happen, YOU are too obsessed with minutae.

            And I would never make the argument that white women, CONSERVATIVE or not, are stupid, except in your case. YOU should move to someplace where the people are as erroneously condescending as you, say….. New Jersey!

          • SWalkerTTU

            I never argued that white conservative women were stupid. I said “brainwashed”. There’s a big difference. Plenty of otherwise intelligent women can be led astray by being convinced of facts that are incorrect and principles that aren’t true. They can also be encouraged to hold ideas that are contradictory without ever questioning the contradiction. Plenty of white men have been similarly led astray.

          • SWalkerTTU

            And I never said “stupid”. I said “brainwashed”.

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

  • jerry148

    So now the list of things the right cares about expands to include fetuses, but apparently not women? Next it’ll be “the right only cares about locking the country’s doors” because it supports border protection.

    She managed to make a post without the “n-word.” That’s a step in the right direction.

  • MarcusFenix

    I have to admit, SS isn’t really that relevant to me, but it’s sometimes interesting to see her tweet things, as presented above.

    I don’t think she’s right, of course. Her statement about people on the Right not caring about anyone but those two groups is, at best, a gross distortion. If it were said that it would bother someone else less because liberals don’t care about kids or white people (rich or not), I wonder if she’d agree?

    She says things for shock value, and I don’t find her terribly funny. The best role I ever saw her in was the intro to “The Way of the Gun”, and it was only because the opening scene was totally not what you’d expect. Otherwise, her other endeavors, such as Air America, were lackluster at best.

    And the conversations below are…..interesting. Kind of sad, but interesting. Some folks are missing some very obvious openings, on both sides, to exploit ignorance.

    *munches popcorn and watches*

    • SWalkerTTU

      It’s about as fair for her to say that as it is for conservatives to say so many of the things they do about liberals, which is to say not very fair at all. Then again, liberals more often state from things they actually observe, rather than what they’d like to believe. There’s a kernel of truth in what she’s said there. Maybe not a big one, but it’s there nonetheless. I personally don’t find her all that funny, and what’s been missed so often here is she also said “as passionately”. That’s not to say that conservatives don’t care about people who aren’t fetuses or rich White dudes, but those, on the surface, look like the main points of emphasis.

      • Guest

        But you’re making a rather broad assumption of conservatives, people on the right, etc, that they’re all about how they feel on something…which while true in some cases, is just as true (and possibly more so) with liberals themselves.

        • SWalkerTTU

          I think that’s true of everybody, but the right tends less to empirical observation and more to dogma, i. e. changing the rules to fit the facts (left) versus changing the facts to fit the rules (right). I say that’s a tendency, and in the aggregate. There are individual differences, of course, and I’m always happy to see a conservative that actually makes some rational sense, but I don’t see that very often. Usually I just see argumentation with glaring holes and inconsistencies in the logic, and quite a few fallacies as well. I don’t like that from anybody, conservative or liberal, and I’ll be quite happy to tell a liberal when they’re full of crap, which happens sometimes but not nearly as often as conservatives say. Then again, I live where the orthodoxy is conservative.

      • MarcusFenix

        Perhaps, but you’re making the broad assumption that people who are on the other side of the aisle are making judgments based on how they feel….which is a common, and demonstrable, trait the left displays. I would point out that there are plenty of people on the left who “feel” their way through elections, just as there are people on the right who “pray” their way through. At this point, it would just be a “tit for tat” exchange on that matter.

        It doesn’t justify one point or another, in that case. If one feels, and one believes, then they are on an even playing field.

        I think this is the first time you and I have had an exchange, but there are plenty of times where I state a belief, or how I generally feel about something. More often than not, I also produce facts and information relative to the discussion, and come at things from a logical point of view. I recently found myself defending a person’s right to use the services of legal prostitutes here…which didn’t win a lot of friends. My personal belief of disdain for the practice didn’t diminish my logical thought process about two people making a business transaction.

        I would be remiss to point out how there are plenty of rich, white men in the Republican party, which acts as a stigma and a punchline. And her kernel of truth, not withstanding the veracity of her entire statement, might be spot on. But Silverman is certainly no champion of balance or fairness…but then again, that could come back the other way, so we reach a similar impasse. Her claim of things being “as passionate”, is again, I feel a misstep in the greater context. There are plenty of things that others are passionate about, which she previously (and publicly) overlooked in lieu of just spitting venom at people who disagreed with her, but had a cogent argument otherwise. I’m just as guilty of liberal bashing…but i try to limit it to the mindless drivel spewed by people who troll. I even agreed, earlier, with someone who is notoriously liberal here, because I felt they were right. As I have said here again and again…..call wrong as wrong, right as right, and give credit where it’s due. Just how I operate.

        Silverman, and people who share her sometimes shortsighted views, would never give that benefit to others. To me, it’s intellectually weak. That particular judgment of mine goes across party lines, across race, sex, age, gender, or any other qualifying trait. It’s bad enough that conservatives stoop to it and don’t stop and listen…it’s equally negative from the other side.

        Just like liberals can be improperly categorized, so too can conservatives or even liberarians who happen to agree with them. It just seems like one giant schoolyard version of “he said, she said” with politics. At the end of the day, it’s likely we’ll never see honest, fair discussion because people get too emotional, on both sides of the line. You can’t shake a man’s hand with a closed fist, afterall.

        As a nation though….we are the most generous and philanthropic nation on the planet. When disasters hit, such as the devastation in Haiti, those differences almost always fall to the wayside.

        It’s too bad people, with politics in general, spend more time shouting someone else down than actually trying to listen….and *both* parties can be equally found at fault.

        I did wonder if you were going to lambaste me like a few of the others below…glad to see it was civil. :)

        • SWalkerTTU

          As long as you’re willing to be civil, so will I. On a personal level, Americans can be quite generous on an emergency basis. Where I think we are falling a little short right now as a society is in providing a general broad base for the vast majority to at least somewhat succeed in life. We like to think of ourselves, I suppose, as a meritocracy. The problem is that this supposed meritocracy is more of a myth or maybe an aspiration than actual reality. This myth can then be used as a justification of a spoils system for those who are in a position to get them, ignorant (as in “ignoring”) of structural advantages that derive less from ethnicity or sex than from economic stratum.

          Above all, I wish that people would take care to be logical and consistent in their world view. That may not be possible for everybody based on their mental makeup — but I also don’t think we do a very good job of teaching people how to be logically consistent, and for most people it would have to be taught. This is why the correct teaching of geometry is important, because it’s one of the few high-school classes I can think of that is both mandatory in most places and provides an opportunity to develop pure logic. There’s a lot of illogic to go around in this country, and there’s some on both sides of the aisle. Still, I find more willingness to cooperate on the left than on the right.

          • MarcusFenix

            Agreed, civility works best. Sometimes, it’s hard to find here. It’s actually nice to discuss something with a person who labels themselves as liberal, and has a brain…can be hard to come by on twitchy. :)

            When you point out the where we fail to provide a broad base of success for people in life, where (in your opinion) does that stem from initially? Plenty of folks are willing to point to public school education (and add in a heaping dose of liberal ideals that seem to be pervasive there) as the de facto starting point of failure. I have trouble disagreeing with that, because of the current state in which those schools stand. I recently pointed out elsewhere that the United States has the highest spending per child of any other country, in front of Switzerland, but we’re 17th overall, while Switzerland is 9th. As a nation, we keep throwing money at a problem that never seems to improve, and in some cases, declines even further.

            I had seen earlier where you mentioned that government could help subsidize the poor, but it wasn’t a panacea. I would like to see your take on the left’s seemingly massive expansion of social programs, and glean where you believe the line should be drawn with regards to getting people on their feet and back to work. If liberal policy, as it stands, is all about the freebies, how do you cut that increasing stream off and how do you account for putting more jobs back into the workforce with conditions as they are now?

            I think you make a valid point regarding the meritocracy, and I think that in some times past, it actually worked, as is eluded to by my grandparents and others who genuinely believed that the system worked that way so many years ago.. Today, the crapstorm between corporate greed, and a million other factors, makes a meritocracy more like “meritocrazy”. It would be nice if things were that fair, but in reality they aren’t. There are many who work hard and never really advance, and have to rely on two jobs, or two incomes in a household, just to put food on the table and still keep the lights on. It’s a difficult problem to tackle, much less solve. Increasing the minimum wage is ineffective and creates additional problems, so where is the balance to be found?

            Because of what I’ve read and seen (I am in a more rural area, but have lived in metropolitan areas before), my personal surmise: it is the lack of critical thinking skills being taught and the pansi-fication of our youth by having things such as Common Core and other “fuzzy” systems. These are predominantly programs pushed by the left. I think it’s silly for conservatives to try and push religion in schools, such as intelligent design or abstinence programs, which irritates people on the right. From my view, IE isn’t actual science, despite my views on faith and God. And as having been a teenager once…abstinence just ain’t happening. 😉

            People should be more consistent, but you and I can very likely agree that just doesn’t happen. People get way too excited about something, or angry, to keep a level head.

            I hated geometry, btw. But I get your point.

            I also can agree, there is plenty of illogical items to go around. In some places, it is very liberal, in others more conservative.

            I think, above all, that it’s more important to find some middle ground. When you have a nation of 330+ million people, you can’t satisfy everyone. It would be best if people didn’t squabble over things and tried to compromise, but we can likely come to the same conclusion: it won’t really happen.

            I haven’t actually gone into the Common Core standards. I’ve only seen ratings (with some detail) that rate the Common Core Math better than the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, our quasi-bible in the Texas public schools — I’m a computer science teacher), but the TEKS were rated better in English. I wish I could remember the organization that did the ratings, but it’s not coming to me right now. They also rated the Science TEKS harshly, and I don’t remember them being very complimentary of the Social Studies standards, either. I’m still trying to parse the Technology TEKS that came into force last year.

            Personally, I’m very much a traditional, establishment liberal (a conservative liberal, if you will); I think the New Deal, while not perfect, set up a number of things that we shouldn’t have gotten far away from, like Glass-Steagall (though a little modification was in order to update to the times, I think the deregulation went too far). I think that capitalism has a lot of merit, but like any powerful force, if not harnessed (as in controlled) it can do a lot of damage. I don’t believe the government should do what can be better done in the private sector, but I’d draw the line differently from conservatives and libertarians.

            With public education, though, it’s not really the standards that make the difference (though they are necessary for the support of a mobile society) as much as the people asked to implement them. Teachers are not well-paid in respect to the educational requirements to become one. Here in Texas, secondary teachers do not get education majors, but majors in an academic discipline with teacher training as an elective or above and beyond normal requirements. (Ed majors are for interdisciplinary teachers like elementary and special ed teachers who have to cover the basics of everything.) If I had been recruited to the software industry out of Texas Tech with my BS in Computer Science, I wouldn’t be in the classroom now. As it is, I entered the family business. We don’t have high performers going into the classroom, and teacher compensation is a big part of that. There are people (men, usually) who would teach, except for being able to get better pay in the private sector.

            With government spending, it’s more important what the money is spent on than the amount. I don’t think a government is well-off running long-term structural deficits, though I still hold with Keynes that when the going gets tough, the money must be flowing (and the inverse, when times are good the government should run surpluses to pay back the debts — that part hasn’t happened here of late).

            One example of inconsistency: decrying Obamacare as government interference in the doctor/patient relationship, then trying to use the law to get rid of abortion. That’s the sort of inconsistency i mean.

            Well, then I will thank you for taking up a sometimes thankless position. I was a martial arts instructor, so I kind of know where you’re at, though our disciplines are clearly in different areas.

            The Common Core standards and cirriculum are worth a read. My own contact with it was via my niece, who brought home math papers to complete and take back to school while I was at their place for a visit a few years back. I was shown a paper from her math class which had the following question:

            “If Math were a cereal, what flavor would it be?”

            All you can do, for questions like that, is put your palm to your face.

            On her entire paper were no real mathematical questions, just a bunch of “If math were a ________” style nonsense.

            I would invite you to do your own investigation into those programs and see what comes of it. While Mrs. Malkin is very conservative and I could expect you to take her work with a grain of salt, she has done some pretty extensive and well researched study into it, and it would be worth the time to take a look.

            I very much agree that such forces like capitalism need to be reigned in so as to not become some out of control force, but…I think we’re already at a point where the horses have left the proverbial barn. Even without including the IRS scandals of late, the entire institution is a train wreck. Couple that with the very cozy relationship government has had with the big business sector (such as the FDA, Dept. Of Agriculture, etc), and you have a recipe that is excellent for abuse.

            As absolutely unlikely it would ever happen, and even if it did there would be massive social fall-out…I’m not far off from believing that the only way to fix most of these problems is to literally start from scratch. Not throwing away the Constitution, mind you, but putting things back into a simpler state. I know that seems silly, and wouldn’t ever happen, but just the idea of being able to hit the “Reset” button at least has some personal appeal.

            I agree with the Keynesian idea up to the point of where the money goes. The TARP, for example, was to save big businesses and banks from going under. However, by definition, companies that were “too big to fail” and received the TARP funds had already, in the financial sense, failed. Saving them might have mitigated some problems, but it didn’t cure the underlying problem…that businesses were already under and basically got a handout to keep doing what they were doing. I don’t know anyone who was onboard with the fact CEO’s and others gave themselves huge bonuses after the TARP went through, and the public outcry was immediate and harsh. Personally, I believe the government needs to run its books, at least in spirit, the same way people balance a checkbook. They just have more columns to deal with. But the idea of being able to pay bills is simple….don’t spend more than you take in. The government has been, at large, spending like a drunken sailor on shore leave for years, with no signs of slowing down. As a point of mention, Obama has increased the deficit at a magnitude unlike anything before it. Accounting for inflation, he has generated more debt in this regard than every other president from George Washington until Bill Clinton’s presidency *combined*. That is not solid economic sense. It’s bass ackwards.

            The inconsistency of decrying Obamacare vs the abortion laws (such as in Texas) are alike, but there are a few caveats worth mentioning.

            Pelosi famously said they needed to pass the bill to know what’s in it. A growing number of people are now in agreement that the ACA was a monstrous bill that needs to be either killed or reigned in heavily, because of some of the outlandish provisions in it. Abortion legislation, on the other hand, is usually (not always though) pretty straight forward.

            While there are those who want to do away with it altogether, polls show that most folks are generally alright with exceptions for rape/incest/life of the mother, of which I am one of those who agree with that sentiment. At some point, the political parts of me have to reconcile with my beliefs. I believe if a woman acts in an irresponsible manner, or just doesn’t want to be bothered with a kid….well, then her own behavior dictates those actions. With the exceptions, it was not her will or her behavior which specifically created the situation.

            With Obamacare, most of the negatives decried are things like “death panels” and having to wait for basic health care needs. Other countries, such as Canada and Germany, have the same basic setup that is being done here, and those problems exist on a regular basis. I think if the administration wanted to provide affordable health care, then they would help to retool the system so that asperin doesn’t cost 40 dollars at the ER. Or an ace bandage costing $75 dollars for an injured ankle (which still is sore at times, 6 months later i might add……*grumble*). Those are issues which help drive up the cost of healthcare, along with the general infrastructure of the insurance system. If people (and by people, i also mean companies) were willing to back off of the profit model for a moment and actually act like their customers were more than numbers, perhaps a solution could be found.

            It is likely there are many who are inconsistent with the approach to those two issues, but at least for me, I don’t believe so. In those situations, I find it comes down to the details, as to whether one agrees or disagrees. In a very broad sense, it can be seen as inconsistent, but a deeper view of it generally clears away that misconception.

    Funny how she left out unprotected Americans representing….America-in places like Benghazi. Oops, sorry. Absolutely nothing funny about her.

    • SWalkerTTU

      So instead of 4 people dying in Benghazi it should have been, say, a couple of Marine squads instead, or in addition? How much of an American military presence would you have wanted there?

      • Conservativesniper

        A sufficiently sized and adequately armed force to rescue OUR people.

        • SWalkerTTU

          So, what’s sufficiently sized and armed, absent any specific actionable intelligence about the size and capability of potential attacking forces? You can hazard a guess, but guesses can be wrong. On the other hand, how would a significant US presence affect diplomacy with the people who aren’t planning to attack us?

          • rivers

            If they couldn’t be defended then why were they sent there? If I accept what your saying, then this travesty was even more unconscionable than I previously thought, damn fools placed these people in harms way out of stupidity.

          • SWalkerTTU

            I believe Ambassador Stevens had a certain amount of latitude in how he approached his job. Ambassadors are supposed to, traditionally. I may be mistaken, but I think it was his decision to go there at that time, knowing the risks it entailed. Should he have gone? Should he have had more protection? Those questions can now only be answered in hindsight. The second is more difficult as it entails risks of it own, not only to the personnel attached, but to the overall diplomatic mission.

            From what I’ve been able to find, the attack was by a company-size force with some attached light artillery, and somewhat kitted out for an infantry assault. This was not an opportunistic attack, except maybe in the specific timing.

            Without knowing ahead of time what strength the attackers had, it would’ve been hard to say exactly how much defense the Ambassador would need. A fair fight would have required, depending on available armament, I would say at a minimum a platoon, but at a nearly 3-1 disadvantage. At least 125 armed men attacked an area the size of three football fields. The defenders if less than company strength would have needed to probably fight a holding action to try to get the Ambassador to some safety or to a predefined extraction point, but with the likely loss of most or all of a platoon to injury or death. A Marine company would likely have been necessary to match the numbers, and our training and tactics would likely have tilted the balance in our favor. That might even have happened with just two or three platoons’ worth of Marines. As it was there were only 27 men in town.

            Then again, what do I know? I’m just a civilian.

      • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

        LOL, you mean they were human sacrifices. Good. Glad to know where you’re coming from.

        • SWalkerTTU

          That’s not at all where I’m coming from. Doing a little checking, I’d have to guess that at least two fully-loaded Marine platoons or even better an entire rifle company would have been necessary to defend from that attack. There would have been significant loss of American life and significant casualties. It was a company-sized infantry assault at night. They may not have been the most organized or best-trained group, but they did have attached light artillery.

          The best number of Americans to have been in that compound that night would have been zero, but that was not what Ambassador Stevens wanted.

      • dwsmokin

        When we put the uniform on, we agree to protect our fellow citizens-that’s what we do, and that’s why we’re there. To be locked and loaded and forced to sit and wait while the people we have sworn to protect get massacred kind of defeats the purpose of having a military at all don’t you think?

    What is wrong with caring about a fetus? I would rather do that than care about “comedians” like her who take the time to spew hate on the internet.

  • rivers

    If I thought her capable enough, I would ask her to back up her statement. And what’s wrong with caring about fellow members of my species in utero? I once was what they are and they will be what I am. How they are regarded indicates how all members of the human race will be regarded. Too bad for her karma that she’s ready to go all out for a bloody act of violence that halts a force of life, too bad for her karma that she’s too lazy to address the reasons women seek abortions in the first place.
