Judicial Activism and the Polarization of America
**America was never intended to be a nation where everyone in every state shared the same values. The original colonies had their own distinct cultures, religions, and traditions, and they wanted to make certain that those were preserved before they agreed to enter the national union. That’s what federalism is; that’s why the 10th amendment is in the constitution. But federalism and local government has | Read More »
Obama and abortion: walking the walk with babies.
It was sunny early afternoon in 1992 when the phone rang from the local hospital. They informed me that my wife just gave birth to a boy weighing less than two pounds. Because she was months away from full term the moment seemed like I had slipped into a dream like state. I thought soon this moment would be over but moments later I realized | Read More »
Brace Yourself for the Stupidest Thing You’ll Read Today.
Apparently, logic was not a required class in whatever med school Rahul Parikh attended. Via Ross Douthat comes this mind-bendingly stupid argument: We could ask, given that Palin had no doubts about seeing her pregnancy through, why she bothered to take a genetic test. Why not, as you might expect a woman in her position and with her outspoken beliefs to do, decline any testing | Read More »
It’s High Time to Act
I’ve never been involved in politics, other than to vote, however this year I am making a conscious effort to see that we don’t end up with the wrong team leading our country. I fear for our future if Obama/Biden get in. While I don’t think McClain is a “super speaker”, Palin sure is. She’s a fighter. Up to the point McClain named her as | Read More »
As a Woman, Does N.O.W. Speak for You?
On June 30, 1966, the National Organization for Women (N.O.W.) was founded with this statement of purpose, “To take action to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all the privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men.” All women in America owe N.O.W. a debt of gratitude for the work they did for women’s rights. In | Read More »
Liberal Feminism Has Created Superwoman
Liberal Feminism has created Superwoman. We’ve all heard stories of how the liberal jewel that is feminism just does not work out. After 30 odd years of telling women they can have it all, the liberal female story is still the same. According to the left there is still not equal pay for equal work, women may be able to tap the glass ceiling, but | Read More »
The Stadium’s Half Empty
1) Why was the RNC seemingly poorly attended last night? It seemed like half the seats were empty? 2) Why is everyone so upset with Campbell Brown who asked a simple question of Tucker Bounds who couldn’t answer it. 3) Why were there almost no people of color in the RNC auditorium? I mean, I know there are a few black and hispanic R’s, but | Read More »
New Fear-Mongering Lies in the Obama Ad on Abortion
New Fear-Mongering Lies in the Obama Ad on Abortion Obama has released a new radio ad attacking McCain’s positions on abortion, labeling them as extremist. Here are some quotes on the ad’s content from the Political Punch: “As a nurse practitioner with Planned Parenthood,” says a woman’s voice, “I know abortion is one of most difficult decisions a woman will ever make. I’m Val Baron. | Read More »
The Obama Abortion Ad
It took him a while to get the abortion ad to the press. He uses a planned parenthood nurse. No, not a nurse from the general medical field. He uses a nurse whose job it is to perform abortions to tell us all how we must not curtail the right to an abortion. Obama does not mention in the ad that reducing abortions would impact | Read More »
Quote of the Day: William Saletan.
As Ace notes, Saletan bent over backward to keep Chelsea Clinton off of the list; but Ace also notes that he probably had to, in order to get the basic argument published. So be it. Saletan, walking through recent single daughters-of-candidates-and-Presidents/VPs, their surprising lack of pregnancies, and the reason why it’s surprising, finishes up with the rather harsh conclusion: > If any of these daughters | Read More »
Christianity and The ‘Pro-Life or Pro-Choice’ Choice
It’s a question that is almost as old as our legislative system: as a Christian, should you be pro-life or pro-choice? Let’s take a look at this.The question of whether the soul occupies an embryo is debatable, but in solving the question of a Christian being pro-choice or pro-life, it is irrelevant. For most Christian parents, having a child is the most blessed experience of | Read More »
A Message to Barrack
I’ve heard you say on countless occasions that the Republicans are trying to scare people into not voting for you because, “I don’t look like any of the other faces on our money.” Or because, “My name is different”. For the record, Barrack, the only person I have heard say these things about you is YOU!!! You, Barrack, are the only one who is making | Read More »
Obama vs. Palin on abortion
Obama on abortion, specifically with reference to his daughters: “But it should also include — it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” | Read More »
My Position on Abortion
My Position on Abortion: I’m Pro-Choice, and I Choose Life. Personally, for myself, I don’t support abortion. As a person of faith I understand that God gave to each one of us free agency. If God was gracious enough to give me free agency who am I to deny you yours. If you or I make the wrong choice we’ll be held individually to account | Read More »
A Personal Story – Unplanned Pregnancy
I can’t recall a time when I wasn’t really pro-life. During high school & college in the 1980’s, when every “teen” movie HAD to have some pro-abortion message, I knew that life was the right choice for the baby. My wife became pregnant with our son before we were married. That was not a good choice on our part. We were engaged, & then married. | Read More »
