    On Abortion and the Right to Life

    (Names redacted to protect the amoral) My original post on Facebook: It’s a pretty simple question, folks: When does life begin? Once life has begun, an abortion is no less than premeditated murder. If, however, there is no life, then there is no murder. A growing majority, supported by medical findings (http://www.naapc.org/why-life-begins-at-conception and http://www.princeton.edu/~prolife/articles/embryoquotes2.html) believe life begins at conception. A minority of significant size believe | Read More »

    Judicial Branch Power Grab

    Something that may not have been much considered on the Prop 8 case before the Supreme Court: The California Judicial Branch created a “right” to marriage for homosexuals within that state. In accordance with the State and US Constitutions, the People of CA Amended their Constitution to overrule the judicial branch. Should the US Supreme Court kill Prop 8, an Amendment to the CA State | Read More »

    If Not America

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16K6m3Ua2nw&feature=player_embedded This is the opening scene from a new HBO tv show. There is a lot of truth in what is in here, but the conclusion the character draws, that “America is not the greatest nation in the world anymore,” I have to disagree with. As bad off as we are, we are still the greatest nation on Earth. Alas, that is not lauding the | Read More »

    Convert or Die

    The “Religion of Peace” strikes again. In September of last year, a Christian pastor n Iran was sentenced to death for apostasy after having been arrested in October 2009 for complaining to his son’s school that his son was forced to read from the Koran at school. Between June 2010 and January 2011, there were an additional 202 arrests, with many still remaining in prison. | Read More »

    For 224 years

    Every time you turn around you hear some Liberal saying that Islamic terrorism is the fault of the USA. They tell us that if we hadn’t been occupying Saudi Arabia, we never would have been attacked on 9/11. They say that if we weren’t occupying Iraq and Afghanistan, the Muslims around the world would love us. Or at least not hate us. Not if we | Read More »

    Let’s Not Forget the TSA

    We have been fighting the blue gropers for years now, but they don’t seem to attract much attention anymore.  Not since we lost the battle over the full body scanners.   Here’s a story that Should return the scanners to the front of everyone’s minds. The Transportation Security Administration employee charged with assaulting a coworker who taunted him about the size of his penis after | Read More »

    Through the Window, From My Branch

    I am beginning to feel the poltergeist around here. This is not the first time I have haunted, nor is it the first place I have haunted. But it is the first time I have haunted This place. As some of you may know, I have been around Redstate a long time. Even preceding Leon by a few weeks, if I recall correctly. Despite this | Read More »

    McDonald vs Chicago in action

    I may be reading this wrong, but I think this Federal Judge just declared Wisconsin to no longer require a permit to carry and that carrying inside courthouses and the like was also permitted.

FOX JACKSON COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY NEWS RELEASE For Immediate Release June 29, 2010 DISTRICT ATTORNEY GERALD FOX’S STATEMENT ON THE | Read More »

    Some Sad News

    A great man died last night.  Probably none of you know him or of him.  Like so many others, he accomplished great things quietly.  I never met him, myself, don’t even know his name, to be honest, but he was extremely important to my life and the lives of many others who know me and mine.  As I write this, I am crying for the | Read More »
