She looked across the yard to see Nazis. 4 t 306 1.7K Katie @YourRacingBele Aug 15 And to see the dead body of her three year old neighbor boy who had been playing loudly in his yard.

Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 A couple of months later, my grandmother and her family were woken up very early in the morning.

So they must work and not complain or be loud. Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 My grandma was a Polish Catholic, which was only a couple steps above a Polish Jew. One of the officer's wives decided she wanted a child 2 t 279 1.6K Katie @YourRacingBele Aug 15 So she "adopted" my grandma. Changed her name. Told her her mother was dead. And that she was a German now Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 The day the news broke that the Allies were coming to Poland, the German officer and his wife left in a hurry. In so much of a hurry...

Where she broke down screaming at the memories. 4 t1 309 2.2K Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 That was in 2001. 56 years after she was rescued by the Red Cross. Those horrors did not fade with time. They were ingrained in her brain 4 2.5K Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 Studies show the Holocaust changed the DNA of its victims. Changed their mental make up. I live with that DNA, with that change. Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 And if you believe that Neo-Nazis are "good people" or they "deserve a voice", I remind you of a three year old boy shot dead Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 That is what giving the Nazis a voice in 1933 led to. It led to my grandma sobbing outside a place where she was imprisoned 10 500 2.6K Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 The Nazis did not start with these things. They started with a voice. And a message. And it ended in unspeakable horrors. Katie @YourRacingBelle Aug 15 And that? That is why Neo-Nazis don't deserve a voice. Because those they worship didn't just talk. 91 775 4.4K

Not fetuses. </p><p>Fetuses are bundles of cells.</p><p>Children are viable outside of the womb, can breathe, make memories and form an emotional bond with their parents.</p><p>It is a constitutional right of women to have abortions if they seek to have one, and it’s our job to protect that right.</p><p>Ultimately, GOP efforts to restrict abortion rights waste an impressive amount of taxpayer funds at the expense of these women being able to get a medically safe abortion.</p></blockquote> Fetus is just Latin for offspring or &ldquo;children&rdquo;. It isn&rsquo;t some magical word that divides human status from nonhuman status. All living things are technically &ldquo;bundles of cells&rdquo; Many aborted &ldquo;fetuses&rdquo; would be viable outside of the womb. Many premature children have been born perfectly viable at an age where they still could have legally been aborted. Abortion is absolutely, positively, in no way, shape, or form a &ldquo;constitutional right&rdquo;. I notice you&rsquo;re not complaining about the taxpayer funds used to support the abortion industry, including forcing those who morally object to pay for the operations. <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mT-i5rcTac2EnkIV22CxT6Q">@prolifeproliberty</a>, <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mIdjdcnkK2TS2WN18OT_EGg">@proud-texan-conservative</a> <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mU1cTyliuqD4RYvl47AsUjw">@patron-saint-of-smart-asses</a>

Advice, Cats, and Clothes: From This Angle ANOVAN Not Just Kitten By ANNE WELSH After years spent in silence, I gather courage to speak out on one petty, relatively insignifieant aspect of campus fe that really irks me: the existence and attire of the mascot known as the Wild Kitten Women have been at Villanova now for over twenty ears. We have studied, partied, cheated, cheered with the best of Villanova's men. We did not complain about the urinals in Dougherty's ladies room, and the pain and suf fering endured trying to get the one and only facility for men in Tolentine. We put up with our business teacher ying we kept him from telling the many hilarious sexual anecdotes which he probably never had. We have made do with the poor share of athletic. funds and facilities that women's sports receive But asking us to continue to accept the Wild Kitten as the representative of women at Villanova is asking too much First of all, a female wildcat is not a wild kitten. This grammatical distinction has obviously escaped many people; the fact that kittens are much cuter than cats ap parently induces people who think of girls as a cuter (and weaker) version of boys to make this elementary mistake But when all is fed and done, kittens are merely young cats of either sex Second, female wildcats do not wear skirts. (This may surprise some who still separate the human sexes by the design of their clothes) Further, female wildcats do not sport black pantyhos either with or without garters. Neither do they normally stalk their prey decked out in a pair of high black boots Perhaps the slinky seductiveness of this curious Cen taur-in-reverse (head of an animal, legs of a girl) is sup posed to excite and upset the players on the other team. Perhaps the kitten kicking her boots and twirling her tail like a gentle whip is needed to psyche our fans into a ๒ frenzy. Perhaps the girl inside the suit (who actually is very good and very spirited) needs a free ticket to the games None of these reasons is quite up to seratch. Let's face it, the Wild Kitten is not only blatantly sexist, but just plain weird. Until we Wild Kittens?", we should just have one kind of mascot, the Wildcat, to represent all the Villanova fans. And let the fur fly where it will. e ready to start cheering 'Let's advice-animal: My mom wrote a hot take in 1974 about her college’s sexist mascot that’s depressingly still funny today.
