Last week, we discussed the issue of death-crazed Minnesota removing protection for children born alive after surviving an attempted abortion.(1) We noted that, given the administration’s desire for all abortion, all the time, and the relaxing of safeguards around abortion pills, we can expect to see a lot more dead children in dumpsters and alleyways soon. Recall the pro-abortion cheerleaders say that, 1: late-term abortions never happen and, 2:
The Minnesota legislature and Walz administration have now made Minnesota one of the most rabidly pro-abortion jurisdictions in the entire world. The unborn have been reclassified as “subjects without citizenship rights” and they are not protected even after birth. The One Minnesota bill removed language in the law requiring medical providers to preserve the life and health of an infant born alive as a result of a failed abortion.
Gentle readers, an occasional issue that some of you have with this blog is that it can be too political. We understand that. Today’s piece is the most political of all. If you are uncomfortable with that, please click away now and we will see you next week. For those of you still here, buckle up buttercup.
Too often in medicine, we focus on interim “successes” rather than outcomes. There are various therapies in use that make patients look and feel better, but only temporarily.

For example, bestowing praise and excessive flattery on an individual for the purpose of currying favor with said individual is “buttering someone up” in slang.
I have never quite understood the appeal of Zombie movies and shows, particularly, The Walking Dead. After a couple of episodes, it was clear that the world was in a zombie epidemic and society quickly collapsed, with the requisite zombie attacks, blood, gore and roving bands of the “uninfected.” This is a common trope in the end-of-the-world, apocalyptic fiction genre.
Following World War I, under the 1919 Treaty of Versailles, Germany was forbidden from stationing military forces in the Rhineland. This is the area of Germany bordering France, Belgium and the Netherlands, loosely defined by land on either side of the Rhine River.
