    And there it is in a nutshell. I thought babies were babies and they all require care and protection but apparently not. Seems some babies are more equal than others

    What hypocrisy! If it is just a clump of cells where a few have developed automaticity ?ability to beat independently and produce a “heartbeat”. It is sacrosanct and must be protected even above and beyond the life and welfare of the woman it resides within Burt once born.....

    I am wondering here if denying babies needed formula can be classified as “post birth abortion”.

    And before you rail about Biden being responsible for the shortage this is down to one factory contaminating it’s product. And of course decades long government “protections” making this industry a virtual oligopoly - and I am perfectly sure no money changed hands to politicians to get those industry protections

    And if you think you have “issues” in America we have Chinese speaking citizens here who go shopping for rich Chinese clients because our standards are so much stricter than China

    Our government should be chiefly concerned first and foremost with American citizens.

    Does your government put the needs of illegal aliens over yours?

    Of course.

    They are the party of "family values" until they started kissing the ground of a guy that has married three high-priced escorts (2 weren't even American) and cheated on all them and paid off hookers.

    They are the party of "Christianity" until it involves helping others that don't look, love or worship the way they do.

    They are the party of "law and order" until the world watched our then-POTUS sit on his hands and ignore a mob he incited beat the hell out of hundreds of Capitol police officers (based on a complete lie). I guess it's only cool when cops are falsely arresting, brutalizing and killing black and brown people.

    And, I posted about a six year old that was somehow separated from her group and gang raped and brutalized at the border that so traumatized her that she lost the ability to speak and none of them even responded.

    So, at the risk of giving unsolicited advice (smile) don't leave a light on BB. They don't care. They won't care. The "precious little lives" only matter when they are attached to an umbilical cord (preferably only white healthy ones).

    They will not and would not let babies starve. But tell me how many “American babies” would be fed denying the babies in immigration detention?

    Your first mistake was reading Mother Jones. A highly partisan hack site that is on par with Alex Jones Info Wars. Nowhere in that article does it quote anyone suggesting that babies go without food.

    I would bet that if we saw the whole context it would be talking about how if Biden actually did something about the illegal aliens crossing our borders we wouldn't have to be sending pallets of baby formula to our southern border.

    But hey, you go ahead and believe Mother Jones. I'm sure it's easy to since they are bashing the party you don't like. Otherwise known as Confirmation Bias.

    I do wish people would not confuse christians for Christians. Whether you believe Jesus was God or not you have to admit his teaching was pretty solid. Too bad so many have put worshiping him above following his teachings.

    I do wish people would stop believing that a temporary shortage of formula is a crisis, it's not, babies can get by on cow's milk for a time. Time was that's all they'd ever get. By turning this into a crisis you and I both know that the big formula makers are going to jack up their prices even after production is resumed to normal capacity.

    I'll answer that just as soon as you show me where I claim that.

    Since it's your straw man how about you answer it?

    I think this is messed up. Biden would rather see illegal immigrants do better than the American citizens. What in the hell is wrong with anyone who supports this move? This shortage was going on before the formula was sent.

    A president of any nation is supposed to take care of their citizens not someone else’s.

    They aren’t “sending” formula it is part of what is a basic staple. Under law these people are entitles to basic food and drink. Are you suggesting that they let babies starve to death?

    I would classify it as such. So every American baby that that dies because of lack of baby formula has been murdered. Every illegal immigrant that got free baby formula thus denying that American baby his baby formula is a murderer. Most importantly, Biden and his entire staff who stole that formula from that American baby to give to criminals illegally invading our country are murderers. I would convict if I was on the jury. Every American who prioritizes the lives of invaders over American citizens should be forced to give up their citizenship and given citizenship in the country that the invader came from. Do these things and the illegal invasion stops tomorrow.

    How about we just call it abortion then so you could be on board?

    if there is a shortage of formula...you are suggesting domestic babies starve? Geez I thought democrats accused republicans of not caring about babies after they are born?

    Are you suggesting that they are more important than the citizens?

    Were you not suggesting the baby formula was withheld from babies in detention?

    How the hell you managed to even remotely get that from my post...... Only you can fathom.

    Here's a thought instead of hearing what you think you want to hear when you read what someone says and reading into it how about just read what they said?

    Okay let me address this twaddle about Mother Jones first

    https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/mother-jones/

    now Alex Jones infowars

    Do we want to reread what Greg Abbott said again?

    https://www.vice.com/en/article/jgmwqp/greg-abbott-baby-formula

    Now the US government is obligated under various treaties to supply food and drink to those in detention - are you really suggesting that they deliberately let those babies starve?

    Then you DO want the baby formula to go to the illegal immigrants? Or is it that you only want that to happen AFTER the US formula shortages have been addressed?

    Is it really that difficult for you to understand? I believe our government needs to put American citizens first and foremost. Charity begins at home.

    Then you would be OK with holding those Republican governors in Republican states that have major poverty issues and high infant mortality accountable?

    But if you are “putting Americans first” then are you also arguing to withhold supply to immigrants?

    I know you are not this dense.....
    When the last American baby who is in need has what that baby needs..... Then, if we have a surplus... Take care of other babies.

    But so long as a single American baby is in need, they should be supplied first.

    Capiche? Comprehendi?
