Mario Cuomo R.I.P.

The accolades are rolling in for liberal, and former Governor Mario Cuomo. He was a great speaker. He could convince a swinging door not to swing. Yet, with all his speechability, he never tried to persuade his party to believe like he did on abortion,

“It seems to me that someone who claims to be opposed to abortion, as Cuomo claims he was (see below), would have spent a great deal of time using his speaking gifts to persuade people that abortion is a moral wrong and thus create a moral consensus against it. Here’s what he said in his address:

“As Catholics, my wife and I were enjoined never to use abortion to destroy the life we created, and we never have. We thought Church doctrine was clear on this, and — more than that — both of us felt it in full agreement with what our hearts and our consciences told us. For me life or fetal life in the womb should be protected, even if five of nine Justices of the Supreme Court and my neighbor disagree with me. A fetus is different from an appendix or a set of tonsils. At the very least, even if the argument is made by some scientists or some theologians that in the early stages of fetal development we can’t discern human life, the full potential of human life is indisputably there. That — to my less subtle mind — by itself should demand respect, caution, indeed . . . reverence.

“But not everyone in our society agrees with me and Matilda.”

Was Governor a coward for not trying to use his wonderous ability to persuade his liberal followers that abortion is just out and out wrong. I am not arguing that a woman doesn’t have the right to terminate a pregnancy, but more time should be spent by all arguing about the morality of such an act. Once again over 327,0o0 babies were terminated by Planned Parenthood in 2014.  That’s a talent pool that was utterly wasted.

 

California Orders Churches to Pay for Abortions

The state of California has done it again – leading the way in all thing fascist and “progressive.” California has ordered any insurance company doing business within their state to immediately cover abortions. No exceptions.

California’s insurance companies are complying and sending out notices to all of their customers that their insurance plans MUST now cover abortion. Here is a portion of a letter Kaiser Permanente sent to a California church letting them know about the change…

The new California law allows churches to receive exemptions from the contraceptive mandate – meaning that churches don’t have to provide contraceptives and chemical abortifacients — but they do have to provide surgical abortions!

The law is obviously ridiculous and is already being challenged, but it’s a harbinger of things to come. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has filed complaints with the US Department of Health and Human Services and the California Department of Managed Health Care for the egregious trampling of religious freedom.

This is wrong in so many ways.

My Future Career Tip!

Yesterday, I picked up a Prestige Limousine client in Lake Oswego and took him to PDX for a flight home. As we crossed the Willamette on the Marquam Bridge, we took in the progress of the new light rail bridge being built. He told me that everything, like a bridge, is now built on a computer in the cloud and all sorts of engineering decisions are made there. An engineer can subject the bridge to various loads, make design changes, subject the design to earthquake stresses all on the computer. Because the design is in the cloud, what used to take two to three days for each iteration, even with a powerful computer, now can be viewed instantly or can take as much as a 30-minutes. The cloud substantially decreases the design time, cuts production or manufacturing time, cuts costs and increases safety.

I shared with him the bus charter of children that took us to the new Sellwood Bridge. The children saw from water level the result of shifting a working bridge 30 to 60 feet downstream, so a new bridge could be built in its place. They saw how new piles coffer dams were built and met the engineers working on the project. I doubt if it impressed the children, but I was astounded that most of the civil engineers were women fresh out of college in the last two years. When I grew up, engineers were men.

Looking up at the old, shifted Sellwood.


My charter bus under the new bridge supports.

Here’s my future career tip: My passenger says his company is looking for female engineers to hire. I failed to ask him why. Maybe women bring a unique perspective to a project; maybe they demand less in salary; maybe it’s good for morale; maybe the answer is none of the above. Whatever, his company wants to hire female mechanical and electrical engineers. All they can get. This is still an area dominated by men, he told me. So if you like to design or build things and you’re a woman consider becoming in demand mechanical and electrical engineers.

Without Abortion Option, Pregnancy Is Torture

“…carrying a pregnancy to term, without benefit of the abortion option as a form of torture,” say journalist’s from “The Nation.”

“There are now states where it’s not safe to be a woman” by Katrina Vanden Heuval and “Why is North Dakota Torturing Women” by Jessica Valenti, of “The Nation” claim new states legislation preventing second trimester abortions are “draconian laws” that are “anti-family” “anti-equality” and “an unprecedented frontal assault” on mainstream support for a woman’s constitutional right to decide when she wants to have a baby.”

I guess third trimester abortions where the baby in a botched abortion is born live are ok!


The Gestapo Lives!

“An exemplary math and computer science teacher has been unjustly escorted out of Benson High School by police following a protracted battle with school officials about Planned Parenthood’s presence in the school and its association with his students.”

“Bill (Diss) has organized one of the most effective efforts against Planned Parenthood in the country. It’s no surprise Planned Parenthood will resort to anything—even going after his teaching license—in order to silence him.”

“Bill was opposing, on his own time, outside of any school activities, the construction of a Planned Parenthood killing center in an African American neighborhood in Portland. The Planned Parenthood business was eventually built, and today targets minority women for abortions.”

Imagine. He conducted and organized his anti-Planned Parenthood (PP) activities on his own time, and objected to the use of his classroom and his name for the PP propaganda.

This should not stand!

The Numbers Make Me Sad!

Chinese doctors have performed more than 330 million abortions since the government implemented a controversial family planning policy 40 years ago, according to official data from the health ministry.

In the U.S. since Roe v Wade in 1973 was passed, this country has conducted over 55 million abortions.

In just over 40 years almost 400 million abortions, about 10 million every year, over 27,000 abortions every day, over 1,000 per hour, day after day after day. That’s like wiping out every human that lives in the U.S.

I don’t want the government telling us what a woman should do with her body, but can’t we see that this is murder?

55 Million!

Yesterday, was the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. Since then 55 million babies have been killed, about 1.3 million a year. Last year alone Planned Parenthood was responsible for 330,000 deaths alone.

Gold Powers To 12th Yearly High Close

Here are the year-end gold closes:

2000 — $273.60
2001 — $279.00
2002 — $348.20
2003 — $416.10
2004 — $438.40
2005 — $518.90
2006 — $638.00
2007 — $838.00
2008 — $889.00
2009 — $1096.50
2010 — $1421.40
2011 — $1566.80
2012 — $1658.40 $1,675.80

In 2010, I predicted Gold would go up for the 11th straight year to $1,704!. It overshot my target by reaching $1,920. While it finished soft at $1,564.80, I predicted we will trade at least as high as $2,000 in 2012. Gold saw a high of only $1798.10 in 2012, but the year end close finished at $1658.40 $1,675.80. That close is the 12th year in a row that Gold finished the year higher than the previous year. That’s a gain of 5.8% 7.0%!

I predict for 2013, Gold will break the old high of $1920 set in 2011 and power our way to $2300 and finish higher for the 13th year in a row.

UPDATE: I was fooled. I thought the last day of trading for 2012 was Friday. That’s why the changes. Gold finished today up $19.50!

Gold And Silver Update.

The monthly, weekly and daily trends of both Gold and Silver are now down with the failure of support at $1672.40 for Gold and $30.64 for Silver.

Major support for Gold is $1500 and $25 for Silver!

The good news comes from Tim Iacono who opines that we may be forming a massive head and shoulders bottom. “…if the other shoulder forms, that means that the correction that began 15 long months ago could soon come to an end and the gold price will f-i-n-a-l-l-y break free of its $1,550-to-$1,800 an ounce shackles.
