Closing GTMO and Opening Abortion Clinics
That is the slogan I created yesterday on Twitter to show the extremes the new Obama administration is going to placate its liberal base. By in large he campaigned on a few themes and most of those of course wound up being centrist and acting as a “uniter”. I am not naieve enough to think that he’d actually govern that way but its something to | Read More »
Liberal shocked, shocked! to find identity politics going on in the NY Senate pick.
Let the record show that I say the following without heat: I don’t think that I’ve ever met Robert Stein, and I certainly have nothing against him. But this plaintive question via (Hot Air) is a bit rich: In Illinois, the future felon Rod Blagojevich appoints Roland Burris amid calls to retain the President’s seat for an African-American and now, with Caroline Kennedy gone, New | Read More »
ObamaConstitution: Dead on Oath/Alive for Roe v Wade deaths
We finally found a provision of the Constitution that Barack Obama respects and that is not above his pay grade: The Oath of Office that is the prescribed moment of conception for live presidencies. So serious did he deem the exact words required, that he re-took the oath 19 hours and 35 minutes from the same Chief Justice of the United States that flubbed his | Read More »
Obama Kicks Off Presidency With Taxpayer-Funded Abortions
Barack Obama is President today because he cultivated a veneer of moderation that made a greater impression on voters than his voting record. On no issue was this clearer than abortion. I’ve talked to committed pro-life voters — evangelicals, catholics, and others — who told me that this country needed change above all. And anyway they assured, this man was clearly not the extremist that | Read More »
Obama Double Talk
Historic? Absolutely! For the first time in our Republic’s history, the American people have elected a president who is not just a fetus killer, but a live baby killer as well. (And a Marxist on top of that.) I can tolerate inept tax policies and even wanting to pull out of Iraq, but Obama’s disrespect for life is beyond the pale. That audio Erick posted | Read More »
Good-bye Mr. President & Thank You!
As President George W. Bush enters the final hours of his presidency, a certain sadness has gripped me. As I watched his good-bye speech to the nation, I was reminded of all that this brave man has done for the country and all of the things that we should thank the 43rd President of the United States for. It was a sobering reminder that the | Read More »
Sanctity of Human Life Act
As we ring in the New Year and begin the 111th Congress, the need to protect the unborn remains front and center in the national political debate. Each year, in keeping with my promise to my constituents, the first bill I introduce provides Constitutional protections to unborn children. Yesterday, I was proud to introduce the Sanctity of Human Life Act that defines life as beginning | Read More »
Where’s The Mystery?
Blessing or burden? A 16 year old Port Angeles, Washington, girl gave birth to a precious baby boy in the early morning hours of January 29th, alone in the bathroom of her father’s house. After the baby was born, the girl submerged his face in the toilet bowl until he stopped breathing, placed him in a plastic garbage bag and threw him into the trash | Read More »
For Privacy’s Sake
At the risk of undermining my reputation for manliness (stop laughing), I will admit that on reading this New York Times article I felt like weeping. In all seriousness, the tragic nature of the acts described nearly brought me to tears right at my desk. If you can read this and not feel similar emotions then you are stronger than me: Amalia Dominguez was 18 | Read More »
AMA: Ethically Challenged
According to Adam Wilson, writing for The Olympian, Dr. Marc Stern, the top physician in the Washington State Department of Corrections, has resigned because of ethical concerns surrounding the use of Department employees to prepare prisoners for execution. Dr. Stern’s decision to resign was reached in part due to the positions of the American Medical Association and the Society of Correctional Physicians, both of which | Read More »
A Religious View of Abortion…But Not What You Expect!
(This is my very first diary, and I’m probably about to put my foot in it big time…but here goes.) Full Disclosure: I am not a conservative. I am center-left in my leanings. Specifically, I am one of those strange creatures known as the Religious Left, that odd pack of betwixt and betweeners who find themselves agreeing with both political sides partially (and neither side | Read More »
Planned Parenthood doesn’t sweat the details — Just bring on the babies!
Look, kid, I’m not here for the details. My only motivation in this is to get that dirty little critter swimming in your stomach to the nearest biohazard bag.
The “public service” group, Planned Parenthood, has recently gotten themselves into another batch of hot water. An Indiana “counselor” –I guess that is better than murder– was unknowingly video taped discussing abortion procedures with what she thought was a 13-years old girl. The 13-year old was really a 20-year-old UCLA student named Lila Rose. She told the “counselor” that she had been impregnated by a 31 year old man — an act that breaks statutory rape laws and is a felony in every state.

Obama Administration to abort life-saving policies.
The Bush Administration is finally set to alter regulations to allow doctors and other health care professionals a “right to conscience,” allowing them not to participate in medical procedures, such as abortion and infanticide, which stand opposed to their moral underpinnings. To wit: The ‘provider conscience’ rule applies to any procedure performed in a federally funded medical setting that “violate(s) an individual’s conscience,” but it | Read More »
“Right to life” vs. “License to kill”: A Libertarian Case for the Pro-Life Position
Promoted to the front by Erick based on a recommendation from several readers. The abortion issue involves vast deeps of confusion about the nature of rights, freedom and the lack thereof, choice, license, responsibilities, and obligations. In this essay I attempt to cut away all the confusion to get to the heart of things from a classical liberal approach. We hold these Truths to be | Read More »
Standing On Principle Or Tilting At Windmills On The Abortion Issue
So…here we are…it’s been two weeks and I’m kicking my next piece on the RMSP down the road again. I’m currently engaged in a job search since the credit crisis has been a disaster for the Commercial Real Estate market. “WHERE’S MY BAILOUT?” Anyway…I’ve learned how to use Feedly and Yoono to track front page and member posts while working on other things and at | Read More »
