Abortionist reveals, 'Am I killing? Yes, I am'
Who wants to be a millionaire? This abortionist did. Carol Everett did it for the money. Read more
Originally published in 1899, By Elbert Hubbard, this classic deserves a wide audience even in these more modern times. This is a timeless case study on management delegation and staffer initiative.

Credit: Panoramic Visions/CPAC 2008 The Purple State-New York Times has a video on Mike Huckabee’s campaign. The clip claims that Huckabee changed, modified his positions once he became popular and donations came in. (Oh how these liberals love evolution…)
The narrator makes the assertion that Huckabee “compromised his position” on the conduct of the war.
The Purple Stater implies that Huckabee grew in office and had to change his positions on the war and immigration to satisfy big-money donors.
Two problems with the PS-NYT clip:
1.) Huckabee remained constant on his positions, and
2.) Big-money donors were not all that big.
Goodness, it would have been nice to be tempted by big donations. But the temptation was easily avoided because the really big money; wheel barrels full of cash weren’t there.
Alert Readers will recall that funding for Huckabee staff had to be cut back after the loss of South Carolina by 3 points to McCain. Most of the campaign workers were released, resigned or worked for free.
The clip speaks of Huckabee being “cavalier on going to battle.” This is a liberal interpretation, of course. In that there are no wars of which liberals approve. Huckabee as governor was most sensitive to the responsibilities of the leader sending soldiers into harm’s way. And that Huckabee saw this as a weighty — a deadly responsibility.
Just as he exercised the death penalty in Arkansas.
“Cavalier” is precisely the wrong word.
The New York Times gets Huckabee wrong. But this is not news.

Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D., served as Senior Advisor to the Huckabee for President Campaign.
“This election season, we aren’t interested in hearing politicians and pundits talk about what the people want. We don’t want analysts to trot out a list of issues that have polled well, or polled badly. We don’t want one campaign to focus-group-test a pitch here, and another campaign to focus-group-test a pitch there, and use the results to divide and conquer. We are tired of hearing about who is jockeying for first place in the presidential horse race. This election is about more than politics, politicians, or political science. It is about us.
We want to see a mother of three with medical bills of over $15,000 ask Mike Huckabee how his health insurance proposal can help her. We want to see a pistol-packing Republican ask Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama how they propose to keep the country safe. We want a man with Mexian-American [sic] grandchildren to talk with John McCain or Mitt Romney about their immigration policies, and be challenged by the wife of a construction worker whose livelihood is being threatened by cheap labor. This is Purple States. There is no filter and no script. We are a group of citizens who look like America, going nose-to-nose with the candidates and each other, asking the questions closest to our hearts, wrestling with the implications of this choice for us, our families, our communities, and our country.”
I’m not sure about the compassion of Purple States for the plight of immigrants when they can’t spell ‘Mexican.” This is liberalism defined: All heart; no brain.
Alert Readers know well that when compromise is presented, it is always the conservatives who must move. When does the liberal democrat change on abortion?
Purple States is run by Cynthia Farrar, Ph.D. from Yale University. Your Business Blogger(R) and Adjunct Professor of Management would challenge any reader to identify a pro-life conservative in the political science department at Yale. I would suggest Dr. Farrar is pro-abortion and wants a ‘pro-choice’ president. And uses Purple States to move the country from Red to Blue.
Special appreciation to Lisa De Pasquale, CPAC Director, The American Conservative Union. About CPAC 2008,
“… A showcase of the heart and soul of American conservatism”
Los Angeles Times
“… Unmatched in both the numbers it draws and the quality of speakers who appear”
“ The nation’s premier gathering of conservatives…a key event for conservative candidates ever since the first gathering was held in 1974.”
Marathon Runner Years ago, Your Business Blogger was clipping the finger nails of the infant Dude. My fine motor skills and eye sight were not quite what they once were and I clipped deep and The Dude bled red bad.
Everyone present cried.
Nothing hurts more than baby blood.
But this blood may not bother everyone.
Trick Question: To a Democrat, What is botched abortion?
Every year in Britain, 50 babies are born-alive — after an abortion attempt.
Babies born alive. Don’t you just hate medical malpractice? The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is mounting an investigation into this horrible rash of babies born alive — according to their standards an abortionist is supposed to be sure they stop the baby’s heart with a direct injection of potassium chloride.
The problem? “In practice, few doctors are willing or able to perform the delicate procedure,” says Britain’s Sunday Times.
“The law guarantees that every infant born alive enjoys full legal rights under federal law, regardless of his or her stage of development or whether the live birth occurred during an abortion.”
Who could possible vote against saving a baby. A baby born alive?
Barack Obama. Democrat.

My grandparents immigrated from Poland in the ‘teens. Mom, or as Babcia as she is now known to her grand-kids, would occasionally let loose a Polish cuss word, Scha-clef.
A horrible, terrible word.
It means, Dog’s Blood.
The British with the King’s Language, also use bloody words. As in Bloody Fool. This is actually a blasphemy referring to the Blood of The Christ. Should not be used in polite company (or in a respectable blog…).
Alert Readers remember the Roman governor Pontius Pilot publicly washing his hands of the blood of The Innocent Man.
Here in Your Nation’s Capital, at CPAC this week conversation has centered on our Presidential candidates — and the acceptability of their positions.
Mike Huckabee and John McCain are said to be imperfect candidates because there are some disputes with one position or another.
But if they are “not conservatives” as some would say, then why are conservatives voting for them? And not a Romney or a Thompson?
Back in Iowa, Your Business Blogger asked Frank Luntz about his book on Words That Work, and what he thought was going on with the electorate.
He said that voters seem to be interested, “less in issues — but in the attributes of the candidates — are they believable?” Are they likable?
This seems to at least partially explain the success of Huckabee and McCain — there may not be perfection on issues, but people like and trust and believe these candidates: the attributes of the candidates are more important; in some ways even more than the positions on issues.
This also explains the success of Obama. Who has a rather thin record of achievement . . . but has an infatuated following. No one can point to what Obama has done, but he’s done it with panache.
Update: Your Business Blogger and Charmaine and the Penta-Posse will be attending CPAC as Official Bloggers. Be sure to call and visit if you are among the 6,000 conservatives across the country coming to Your Nation’s Capital today thru the weekend.
Mike Huckabee is scheduled to speak on Monday at 9am.
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, FRC Action’s Vice President for Communications will appear on Fox News “Special Report with Brit Hume” at 6:10 PM ET this evening to discuss the Super Tuesday results.
Alert Readers will recall that Charmaine has served as a paid senior adviser to the Huckabee campaign. She has returned from her leave of absence from the Family Research Council as Vice President of Communications.
See the Washington PostCampaign Tracker: McCain has raised $7 million, spent 10 million and has 3 mil on hand. (6 mil came from somewhere — accounts payable? Owner investment?)
Campaign finance does not add up in the same way numbers do when Your Business Blogger teaches his business courses…
