Liberal’s Steps to a Political Argument
1) Insert talking point.
2) Proceed to panic when talking point countered by facts.
3) Result to calling opponent a racist, bigot, or something else derogatory.
4) Slither away back to the hole they came from.
The cold hard slap of reality.
Dumb, Dependent, Demon-Rats!!
This is how you sign abortion in American Sign Language.
Seems to us that this is a very literal description of what abortion does to an unborn baby.
Seems to me that you have done very little research on what different abortion procedures entail. (Hint: None of them involve rocking a baby in your arms and then throwing it to the floor.)
I know I have followers who are fluent in sign language, could someone a) verify this and b) explain the grammar structure in play here because as far as I know theres a lot of words in ASL that are like, combinations of multiple words and I’m sort of seeing this as two individual signs used to represent a single concept.
Regardless, lolling that this is being used as an argument.
American Sign Language is a language that combines signs for specific words to make another word. The sign for baby is the rocking motion. The last part of the sign looks to be destroy. This is a very literal way to describe abortion.
I don’t see how anyone can brush it off or use such a fucking stupid argument like antiprolife’s up there. You take a baby, a tiny human, and you dump it as if it were trash.
2. That’s not what happens
3. Lol @ using sign language as an argument when you don’t even know how abortions work
1. Early stage of human life, it doesn’t matter what it’s called. You’re a human from the moment you’re conceived and zygotes and fetuses aren’t some other species.
2. Tear it up, liquefy it, any of a number of things that could break it into smaller pieces, therefore killing it so you can toss the remains like so much garbage
3. The sign language itself isn’t being used as a reason why abortion is wrong. None of the pro-abortionists have actually caught what the anti-abortionists are saying, as per usual.
Vampire Bats Key to Novel Drugs
Vampire bat venom could hold the key to new treatments for stroke and high blood pressure.

Bats are the Best
“George Zimmerman’s defense attorneys on Thursday released photos and text messages from 17-year-old Trayvon Martin’s cellphone ahead of a hearing that will determine whether they can be used at Zimmerman’s murder trial,” foxnews.com reports. “The photos show Martin blowing smoke and extending his middle finger to the camera. The photos also show [Martin holding] a gun and what appears to be a potted marijuana plant. In the text messages, Martin tells a friend that his mother has told him he needs to move out of her house and move in with his father since he was caught skipping school.” More importantly, lawyer Mark O’Mara told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that the texts reveal that Martin was into street fighting. The deceased teen promised to go back and continue a previous battle. Zimmerman’s chances of acquittal just went up. The possibility of rioting, too.

Gun, drug texts feature in new Trayvon Martin shooting evidence
(CNN) — Items taken from Trayvon Martin’s cell phone — including a text-message discussion of drug use and pictures of a gun and marijuana plants — are among new details released Thursday by attorneys for the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of killing him without provocation 14 months ago.
The evidence, George Zimmerman’s attorneys say, paints a different picture of the 17-year-old than the one portrayed by his family and supporters. Lead defense attorney Mark O’Mara says he will try to use the evidence if prosecutors attempt to attack Zimmerman’s character during his trial on second-degree murder charges, set to begin next month.
Also Thursday, O’Mara filed motions in court. One asks for sanctions against the state for withholding evidence and for saying it didn’t have more evidence when asked. The second requests that his client’s trial be delayed.
Much of the new evidence disclosed Thursday in filings by Zimmerman’s attorneys comes from Martin’s cell phone, including photos showing a semiautomatic pistol and ammunition and small marijuana plants growing in pots.
In other pictures, Martin is pictured making obscene gestures in an apparent self-portrait, as well pictures showing him with friends and in other settings.
The text messages include a conversation from November 2011 in which he appears to say his mother has kicked him out of the house after “da police caught me outta skool.”
“So you just turning into a lil hoodlum,” the person with whom he is texting says.
“Naw, I’m a gangsta,” the text message read.
In other messages, text message exchanges appear to be discussing guns.
“U wanna share a .380 w/ (blacked out),” one text message sent from Martin’s phone reads.
The text messaging logs are also peppered with references to marijuana use.
“I got weed nd I get money Friday,” a message sent from his phone reads.
“I hid m weed,” another text sent from Martin’s phone reads. “its wrapped.”
The attorney for Martin’s family, Benjamin Crump, says the evidence is “irrelevant” and predicted it would never be used at Zimmerman’s trial.
“Is the defense trying to prove Trayvon deserved to be killed by George Zimmerman because (of) the way he looked?” Crump said in a statement released Thursday.
“If so, this stereotypical and closed-minded thinking is the same mindset that caused George Zimmerman to get out of his car and pursue Trayvon, an unarmed kid who he didn’t know. The pretrial release of these irrelevant red herrings is a desperate and pathetic attempt by the defense to pollute and sway the jury pool.”
Instead, he said, jurors will focus on Zimmerman’s arrest for battery on a police officer, a domestic violence injunction and other issues he said demonstrate a “propensity for violence.”
Zimmerman’s defense also released Thursday a handwritten note that was allegedly written by someone who was on the phone with Martin when the confrontation with Zimmerman took place.
The note, dated March 19, 2012, is not addressed to anyone in particular and it’s not clear why the person wrote it.
It reads: “He started walking then noticed someone was following him. Then he decided to find a shortcut cause the man wouldn’t follow him. Then he said the man didn’t follow him again. Then he looked back and saw the man again. The man started getting closer. Then Trevon turned around and said why are you following me!!
“Then I heard him fall, then the phone hung up. I called back and (not legible) no response. In my mind I thought it was just a fight. Then I found out this tragic story.”
Zimmerman recently waived his right to a pretrial hearing under Florida’s “stand your ground” law, which allows people to use deadly force when threatened regardless of where they are.
His attorneys will claim self-defense at trial.
A representative of the special prosecutor handling the case did not immediately return an e-mail message seeking comment on the evidence.
Prosecutors renewed their motion for a gag order in the case Thursday because, they say, they’re concerned about finding an impartial jury given the “inordinate amount of media coverage.”
Two previous gag order requests by the prosecution have been denied.
