At what point do their deliberate choices to ignore the obvious and allow evil to continue do they themselves become evil?
When a series of governmet agencies and health agencies made choices over decades to continue to allow Dr. Kermit Gosnell to murder babies by taking a pair of scissors and severing the spine at the base of the neck of a baby that had been born alive after an attempted abortion. I shouldn't even refer to it as an attempted abortion as Gosnell's intent was to deliver the babies and then kill them. That's when evil becomes triumphant.
Late last week I decided I needed to read the entire Grand Jury report on the case. While it is some of the most horrific things I have ever read, I feel like I need to know. I think we sanitize ourselves too much from the evil that lurks in this world.
It's the same approach I take on September 11th each year. It's as if I'm fearful that if I do not hang on to at least one day in every year remembering what happened then its likely not to have held any significance.
I want to remember.
I need to remember.
And so it is with this evil.
After reading half of the Grand Jury report, I can tell you this is as much of an indictment against the abortion mills and those that support it as it is of Gosnell himself.
The report is rife with agency after agency that KNEW, they KNEW what was going on and they continued to look the other direction.
"Staloksi, the woman most directly responsible for the department’s oversight of abortion facilities, told the Grand Jury: 'I haven’t been in any facilities in probably – in an abortion facility in many, many years.' The citizens of Pennsylvania deserve far better from those charged with protecting public health and safety."
They SOOOOO wanted to have all types of abortion easy to get that they refused to even inspect the facility after reports were filed with the allegations.
Gosnell's "trip-up" was that he was also a pill mill. In fact he would still be slaughtering near-full term babies had it not been for the fact he was shut down in a DRUG investigation. Nothing was ever going to stop this murdering bastard had he stuck with slicing babies necks and infecting women with venereal diseases by reusing unclean instruments. Hell, he even used the same tubing to suck the baby parts out that he used for intubating the women to keep them breathing. If after reading that report you can ever again believe abortions are for "women's health", you are either lying to yourself or you're stupid. That the media wouldn't report this for years is telling. Only after FOX News continued to report it and it began spreading in the social media atmosphere did the diehard main stream media even pick it up. I would think the idiots would get tired of playing catch-up and start actually attempting to do their jobs.
Every single person that allowed this monster to continue should be indicted for murder. That includes those "mothers" that went to see Satan to murder their very own children.
I hope they return the feet that Gosnell kept as souvenirs to the "moms" so they can realize exactly what they have done.
There's a lot of blood here folks. Blood on the hands of a lot of people.

Four years ago when we were planning our last trip to Italy, I really was intrigued by Rosetta Stone. The cost was just too high for what I knew would be a whim. To get the full set was somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 Franklins and I just couldn't justify that price.
So this time with some stash money whispering in my ear, my interest was peaked once again. Of course the itch grew worse while I was researching for the trip because nearly every site had a Rosetta Stone ad on the side. I clicked on the link a few weeks ago and saw that they now offer a 12 month online access offer at a reduced price over purchasing the program. Looking a little further indicated that the software also had an app for the IPad and IPhone. When I had just about decided to splurge I realized the 12 month offer had a drop down arrow. Hit the arrow and the deal was sealed. It was a three month subscription for $129.
I'm normally not one to blow money, but I figured for $129 I would certainly give it a try.
A few weeks into it and I can say I really do like it. Although I certainly won't be very proficient by the time we go in two weeks, I do think I will be able to pick out several words. And it's actually been kinda fun.
The only thing I could say that it needs is the ability to practice pronunciation when you are driving. There are no options to practice during times when you cannot keep your eyes on the software.
I'm almost finished with Lesson 1 out of 5.
Wish I had started sooner.

I could write a post every fifteen minutes if you would get inside my head all day long because I often think, "I could post something on this." And then I never get around to it. I snap a pic and have a great idea in my head but sitting down and typing it out is like herding hummingbirds.
So make of this what you will. Caption them, enjoy them, ignore them, it's up to you.
