Bill Bennett: Honorary Punching Bag of the Day

It seems that Dr Bill Bennett is in a bit of hot water again.  Remember when the left tried to destroy him because of his gambling issue?  Remember back even further when he angered everyone as the drug czar talking about policies that would reduce drug us and crime?

Well, this time he made a statment that was making a point of one effective way to reduce crime.  He is quoted as saying something like "I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you cold abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would go down."

So the question is, what did he really say, and what was the context of the converstion.  You can find a disscussion about that here

The interesting thing I think is that Bill is under fire and he knows it and he is ready to take the heat.  He is used to that.

Take it to them Bill!

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
