Is NSA Surveillance Program Evil?
I am sure that NSA surveillance program has achieved a lot in saving American innocent lives from potential terrorist attacks and to protect our country’s strategic interests from foreign powers. I believe that for now NSA’s (or any intelligence agency for that matter) purpose isn’t evil and is operating within the confines of the law. So, how should Christians view NSA surveillance program in the | Read More »
President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation
Here is the full text of President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation issued on October 3, 1789. One thing that’s very interesting about this little piece of history is that it’s full of religious overtures. Can you imagine Obama issuing that kind of proclamation? Or for that matter, the current Congress decreeing a special day of thanksgiving to be held as a way of blessing the | Read More »
The Trouble Isn’t With NSA Spying On Us
It’s good for us to revisit the issue of balancing between preserving our cherished civil liberties and the need for security measures in order to safeguard peace for Americans. If we don’t revisit the issue now and again, it will mean we’re complacent and take the civil liberties for granted. We shouldn’t take anything for granted. But this diary isn’t about Edward Snowden or NSA | Read More »
Personhood Issue: Aggravated Murders vs Abortions
Ariel Castro is being charged with multiple counts of aggravated murders for each time a pregnancy resulted in miscarriage by physically abusing 3 women held in captivity for a decade. Ohio has a provision in its law that allows the prosecutor to charge a person with a count of aggravated murder if done with the intent of forcing a pregnant woman to terminate her pregnancy | Read More »
Dear Redstate, An Important Message From A Minority Voter
I’m not sure where to start, but since everyone here is concerned about how GOP can reach out to the minority voters with a winning message that will resonate with them. So, that’s where I will start. I am one of few minority voters who voted for Romney.
Which Comes First, People or Government?
[promoted from the diaries as part of the Ambitious Writer's Program] Which comes first, egg or chicken? It’s a philosophical question that could be answered either way. There is really no right or wrong answer to this question. Ever since Obama spoke foolishly out of his mouth with his now infamous quote, “You didn’t build that,” as if business must depend on some assistance from | Read More »
Let’s Turn The Table on Obama
For years, President Obama has been pushing for tax increases on the wealthy class. One of the most recent tax proposals put forward is the so-called Buffet Rule, based on the billionaire Warren Buffet’s article written in New York Times, in which he revealed a supposedly shocking fact, he paid less in taxes than his secretary. He argued that anybody making over $1 million is already super-rich | Read More »
Why Can’t Obama Be More Like His Daughters?
It’s not always easy to get two persons to agree on something, much less getting Congress to agree on any major issue that’s especially divisive and has enormous stakes. So, in a certain way, I can sympathize with the president for feeling frustrated by his inability to get Congress moving on some important issues. But when Obama recently scolded the Congress for failing to get | Read More »
Following Up on Streiff’s Dairy, “Palin Fear”
I was going to write this as a comment under streiff’s dairy, “Palin Fear,” but I think this warrants a dairy of my own. Streiff wrote that the reason Obama administration fears Palin is because she’s an excellent spokesman for conservative movement and Republicans who actually believe in conservative principles. Please allow me to expand upon streiff’s premise. It’s my belief that the actual reason | Read More »
Guilty Until Proven Innocent
Our court system may not be perfect, but one of long cherished and held legal traditions is the assumption of innocence until proven guilty. Well, if President Obama has his way that will change in a major and significant way. Obama also planned to ask Congress to crack down on tax havens and implement a major shift in the way courts view guilt. Under Obama’s | Read More »
