Dims Finally Found An Unlimited Right

Naturally it was not the Second Amendment.

Tim Ryan: I Don’t Support Any Limits on Abortion
Baier then followed up, “My question was about any limits to abortion at any point, late-term, anything?”

Ryan responded, “Look, you’ve got to leave it up to the woman. Because you and I sitting here…can’t account for all of the different scenarios that a woman dealing with the complexities of a pregnancy are going through. How can you and I figure that out?”

Ah, would that Rep. Ryan [Dumbass-OH] (and Senator-wannabe), held that same view of enumerated rights. Sadly, while abortions should be unlimited, it’s difficult to pin down any RKBA infringement he doesn’t like.

I suppose the difference is that the Second Amendment is enumerated; right there near the top of the Bill of Rights. Whereas abortion…

Hmm. Doesn’t seem to be there. And yet, somehow SCOTUS found it in the Fourteenth Amendment.

Let’s see if can dig up the magical, numerological algorithm the justices used to find it it in ’73.

Here we go!

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Regardless of your take on abortion, you should really find ROE v. WADE to be really bad constitutional law. I never quite (though I have strong suspicions) understood why SCOTUS mangled an amendment. meant to ensure equal protection for freed blacks, post-Civil War, to rationalize abortion rights.

After all, they could have more rationally turned to the Fourth Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons

“Persons;” bodies. Eh? Or especially the Ninth Amendment…

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Now that would have been more reasonable. Cite the amendment that says there are other rights not mentioned.

Which bring me to my aforementioned “strong suspicion.” SCOTUS of the time (and currently, damnit) didn’t dare open up the statist Pandora’s Box of rights not handed down by judicial divinity; rights which we the effin’ people could invoke without waiting for their permission.

Looks They’re Over-Sampling CNN & MSNBC Hosts Again

Which be about the only way a real poll would find numbers that high.

CNN Poll: Only 2% of Americans Believe Biden’s Economy Is ‘Very Good’

I love these polls (that’s sarcasm, of course).

The poll also revealed the economy is the number one issue for Americans by 36 points (50 percent). Subsequent issues followed: Ukrainian war (14 percent), immigration (10 percent), global warming (nine percent), racial unrest (five percent), coronavirus (five percent), and education (four percent).

It’s all in the way you ask questions, and what questionsand answers — you use.

Q4. Which of the following is the most important issue facing the country today? [OPTIONS SHOWN IN RANDOM

Yeah, let’s try a better issues poll.

MiniTru Is Only Supposed To Vet *OUR* Social Media For “Disinformation”

Not Their own.

Alejandro Mayorkas ‘Was Not Aware’ of Disinformation Chief’s TikTok Videos Before Appointment
Mayorkas was not only unaware of Jankowicz’s Tik-Tok use, as he also had no idea she suggested Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” was Russian disinformation.

“I’m not familiar with those statements,” Mayorkas responded to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Thursday about whether or not he knew of Jankowicz’s political position on Hunter Biden’s authenticated laptop.


I figure he/DHS knew. They’re just astounded that anyone cares, or thinks she might’ve been wrong. Thus, the videos and statements were not a problem.

Yard Work Report

I just completed a couple hours of work in the yard. You’ll be pleased to hear that I didn’t dislocate, break, or amputate any body parts this time.

Spring has arrived, so I’ve already mowed a couple of times this year. This first time on the lawn tractor after last year’s accident, I must admit to feeling some apprehension.

Didn’t let it stop me, though.

What; suddenly “horse medicine” is good?

VICE Magazine Instructs Readers To Make Home-Made Abortion Pills From Horse Medicine
VICE magazine published an article instructing readers how to make “do it yourself”abortion pills from horse medication after a draft Supreme Court opinion overruling Roe v. Wade was leaked to the press.

In an article titled, “Anarchist Collective Shares Instructions to Make DIY Abortion Pills,” journalist Jason Koebler guides women who are seeking abortions in states where the procedure has become illegal to make “misoprostol tablets” to induce abortion.

Funny thing; I recall hearing accusations of “practicing medicine without a license” when folks advocated Ivermectin for ChinCOVID.

I’m not going to watch the video, but I do wonder if it addresses the often needed hospital followup to complete the “chemical” abortion.


So I woke up this morning to the news that an alleged draft of a SCOTUS decision in DOBBS v. JACKSON WOMEN’S HEALTH has been leaked and published by Politico. It would essentially overturn ROE v. WADE.

Given the current political/social state of America, the only reason to leak such a first draft document, real or fake, is to incite — at best — civil unrest; at worst, rioting.

Heads better roll.

“This leak has to come from a clerk or Justice themselves. It is intended to blow up the court. Criminal investigation needs to happen now.”

They suggest Sotomayor has most radical leftist staff.

I agree. This appears to be an attempt to destroy one of three constitutional branches of American government. You want “insurrection“? I’ve see your insurrection right here. It doesn’t even matter if the draft is real, or a riot-inducing hoax. Let’s see the Dims investigate this.

Politico damned well better be included in the scrutiny. Whether they published this for clicks, as outright accessories, or some combination of the two, they are culpable in every single likely bit of coming violence.

And, yeah; I figure violence is guaran-damned-teed, given the unhinged status of the Left. Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so.

And it will be started by the pro-abortion Left. It would seem that the anti-abortion side has nothing to riot over; looks like they won. They stand around peacefully praying, offering thanks to God. Right up until they likely find themselves forced to defend themselves against psychotic pro-abortion types who’ve snapped at the loss.

Riots were not on my birthday wishlist.

Kel-Tec P32: Tam Nailed It

Worth a read. On the one hand, it’s NRA. Another the other, it’s Tamara Keel.

Kel-Tec P-32: The Most-Influential Handgun in the Last 20 Years
While in the perfect, ideal CCW world that existed largely in the pages of gun magazines, everyone was carrying a service-size semi-automatic, a pair of spare mags, a backup gun (and a partridge in a pear tree), the reality was very different.

The average carrier—heck, I’d be comfortable stating the statistical majority of carriers—just doesn’t want to put up with the hassle of getting strapped up with all that gear in the mornings. Instead, they want a gun that solves the First Rule of Gunfighting (“Have a gun.”) while impacting their normal, daily existence as little as possible.

I’d hadn’t really thought of the P32 in terms of influence. As she says, it was pretty much all prior art. But that explanation of why it caught on, and spawned many others of the like is spot on.

I owned a P32, for exactly the reason Tam cites. There were times I just needed something concealable and convenient.* .32 ACP isn’t my favorite cartridge, but it beats annoying someone with .25 ACP partypoppers. It was reasonably accurate at usual gunfight range.

I could even get it out of a pocket (yeah, pocket carry happened sometimes; holster much preferred) fairly quickly. That was part of my range practice.

* My first EDC handgun was a 1911, with the said two spare mags.

I also carried an LAR Grizzly Mk 1 — .45 Win Mag — concealed just to prove I could. I did have to pull the muzzle compenator, though.
