This Week's
Backside Of The Bell Curve


"Morality Czar/Serial Gambler"

Yep, he's baaaaaack!

Self-proclaimed (and thoroughly disgraced) morality czar, Bill Bennett, said this on his radio show (yes, he has a radio show, just like convicted felon, G. Gordon Liddy):

The author of "The Book of Virtues," answering a caller's question, took issue with the hypothesis put forth in a recent book that one reason crime is down is that abortion is up.

Yet another Bennett book

"But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down," Bennett said.

And here's Bennett's qualifier:

He went on to call that "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky."



Abortion is wrong, but it could lower the crime rate if it weren't a morally reprehensible thing to do?

If it walks like a wishful thinking duck, talks like a wishful thinking duck, and quacks like a wishful thinking duck...

I could say, just as easily, that if you altered the abortion laws to legalize "partial birth" abortions up to 1000 months, you could decrease gambling significantly in this country.

According to Bennett's logic, it could work.
