Komen’s “Pink” is code for white women

In case you missed it: Komen Foundation has reinstated funding to Planned Parenthood.

It makes me laugh every time I see the “pink” stuff that comes from the greedy Komen foundation.  They are concerned about “pink” women, which I know to be code for white women.  That’s easy because by percentages Jewish (white) women are more likely to contract breast cancer than any other group.  Komen is Jewish and her organization wants to help white women primarily and anybody else, well, that’s an aside. 

Komen is headed by a Jewish woman Karen Handel who is the one who pushed the defunding of Planned Parenthood. 

I have not check the stats but if I did I would have to say that Jewish women probably have the lowest rate of abortion than any other group for a number of reasons. They believe in marriage, and they believe in propagating the race and they usually have the resources and the means to have a “private” abortion or to keep the baby. 

Do they care about funding Planned Parenthood? I don’t think so.  I’ve used PP in the past.  The focus was always two things: contraceptives (freely given) and abortion referral (at an affordable cost).  In Chicago they were downtown.  You could also get a PAP smear from them and a general check up.  I got free contraceptives such as the diaphragm from them.  It worked well and there were few side effects. 

But for anyone to tell you that their primary purpose is breast cancer detection it wasn’t in my day.  Oh of course they would feel your breasts for lumps but that was about it.  How much does it take to do that?  But as far as mamograms they did not do those.  I don’t believe in them anyway and I’ve been proven correct on that score.  Mamograms should be used rarely and wisely and not commonly. 

Is PP a good thing? For women of color and those who don’t have the resources of middle class white women or any class it is essential.  It gives you a sense of control.

As for Catholics and their rant over have to conform: they are hypocrites to think that Catholics some don’t practic birth control.  What would Kennedy do?  I think he would probably uphold what the Catholics want.  Mind you abortion was still not widespread in the 1960s but women were still getting abortions if they had the money and the birth control was on the black market for women who knew where to go. 

Komen cares about Komen’s own: Jewish, white women who are genetically predisposed for breast cancer.

Richard Nixon was my friend

Did you know that JFK and Nixon were friends and I believe they had senate offices next door to each other. JFK wanted Nixon to beat somebody and so donated to his campaign. But then there was Watergate. Now there is tapegate. Here’s the link to the Nixon library et al. What a guy!

What the Hecklers Wanted

Notre Dame TV broadcast today’s commencement addresses and CNN carried all the moments from abortion to hecklers who made lots of noise while Obama spoke. Early on in the speech a tall man with a hat was escorted out. Another person too. You could hear he was shouting pretty loud but you couldn’t make out what he was saying.

In defense of the moment many of the graduates stood up and started talking over the hecklers. Obama said “it’s okay.” I got this. And he did. He spoke about stem cell research and how to look at abortion from both sides of the argument which he said were probably irreconcilable.

The President did not hesitate to accept this offer and the honorary degree. And yes he jibbed about ASU not conferring same on him, shame on them.

But Notre Dame’s Father Jenkins was no shrinking violet and did the right thing by inviting the President and honoring him.

Obama returned the favor and gave a moving speech. I watched the whole thing from my treadmill. It was touching and well-accepted by the crowd. There was a sourpuss sitting behind him. She looked like an old white rock the whole time he spoke.

But Obama rolled out some history during his speech on the anniversary of Brown v Board of education striking down separate but equal school bull shark.

He mentioned the father who took part in brokering that historic moment. It was a civil rights education and a call to good will and a call to service to this country rather than service only to one’s selfish goals.

Well done address by the President, no doubt about it.
