How do you outlaw abortion without outlawing abortion?
Easy. In Virginia, first Governor Bob McDonnell signs a law that says abortion clinics will be subject to the same regulations as hospitals. (Not outpatient clinics that do things like plastic surgery or oral surgery, mind you, just abortion clinics.)
Then you pass a bunch of regulations for new hospital construction (like minimum hallway widths and specific ventilation systems), and remove the clause that exempts existing hospitals.
Voila! All 20 abortion providers in Virginia will have to make costly renovations, endangering their ability to continue operating.
The Virginia Board of Health didn’t want to do it. When they passed the regulations in June, they grandfathered in the existing clinics. But Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli threatened the Board with legal and financial consequences if they failed to remove the exemption, and for good measure, Governor McDonnell appointed a new Board member - Dr. John Seeds, vice chairman of the anti-abortion group OBGYNS for Life. Lo and behold, they got what they wanted.

No politicians invited to this year’s 9/11 Memorial event
As a decree from the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, no politicians at all are going to be invited to speak at this year’s 9/11 Memorial event. What with it being a presidential election year, and what looks like what’s going to be a nasty one at that, the Foundation decided that political rhetoric and stumping over a graveyard isn’t what they want. Good for them.
Mitt Romney tells us how he really feels about things.
Mitt Romney released his birth certificate
And it’s an obvious fake. First, it has “VOID” stamped down the side. Second, it’s a photocopy - I could forge that in 10 minutes. Third, it is a “certificate of live birth.” Hey, birther websites question documentation of Obama’s birth there because Hawaii provided a “certification of live birth” and not a birth certificate. Turnabout is fair play.
After all, asMother Jones points out:
The President’s certificate of live birth, reported Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy, “is not the exact birth certificate.” Sarah Palin suggested that the certificate of live birth was insufficient proof of citizenship.
As one leading conservative activist put it, “A ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words.” That was Donald Trump.
What about this documentation? Is he claiming Gateway is lying? Or was this before he decided to illegitimately seek the presidency? Until he releases the long-form birth certificate, AND meets these demands, I’m still saying he’s a robot. They may say we’re roboters and dismiss it as robotism, but I won’t let that discourage me.
After all, I’m only seeking the truth. What’s more patriotic than that?
