Let me be clear at the outset of this commentary. I am not making an attempt to impress you with my piety. Heck, I’m just another old Pharisee trying to make my way through my remaining days on this confused, baffling, wondrous, puzzling, and often enigmatic little mud ball floating in third place from the […]
The opening act of what the conservative community in America feared, with the election of Mr. Obama to the Presidency, began playing out in Illinois this week as the governor of that state was taken into custody by federal officers as their investigation into what has been called a political crime spree continues. We’re convinced it is the kick-off of another scandal ridden democratic administration that we hoped and even prayed we, as a country, were rid.
From the moment a child is born there is probably no greater “universal truth” pounded into their head by society and culture than of the existence of a fat jolly man dressed in red who brings good little boys and girls presents each year with his eight tiny reindeer. It is the one great myth that is inescapable. Stores, malls, songs, programs, teachers, relatives, as well as friends and neighbors rigorously propagate and enforce this little piece of fiction.
Christmas was once a wonderful time for celebrating with family, friends and supper at Grandma’s house. Grandpa would gather the children around the fire place and tell them the story of Jesus Christ who was born on Christmas Day. Grandma would make ginger bread cookies for the young folks as daddy brought the Christmas tree in the family room for decorating.
A recent report from the Associated Press’ Lindsey Tanner cites that one out of five children suffer from personality disorders. I can’t let this slide. Why have adolescent personality disorders reached such a high number? I will approach this with common sense and much controversy.
Every time I turn on the TV, there are ads for about any drug you can imagine. We have become the take a pill society, which has encouraged all kinds of new medications to hit the market, and a few of these medications are evil.
I want to revisit the Kennedy Center Honors held last Saturday. When the media repeatedly looped President Bush giving legendary singer and liberal activist Barbra Streisand a kiss on the right side of her cheek, while for the past eight years giving conservative Republicans the backside of his hand, I had to seriously contemplate to myself … What makes President Bush act in the manner that he does?
At the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union only one superpower remained. US capitalism. The engine of the Soviet’s destruction had been the economy of the West, not the military might of the West. At best the military served to pin or hold Soviet attentions, while the economy kicked the stuffing out of them.
Well, now. Isn’t this interesting! Obama’s change is not exactly the change many on the political left had expected of him. Some on the left are even claiming that Obama’s foreign policy, what little we know of it yet, is akin to that of George Bush’s father, George H. W. Bush. Obama has drawn counsel from many in Scowcroft’s circle, and Gates himself was deputy national security adviser under Scowcroft.” You may read the entire article here.
In the coming months, you are going to become very familiar with the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). The EFCA removes the right of employees to privately vote for or against a union. The open ballot initiative will assure that small businesses (stop thinking mom and pop joints) and nonunion companies like Walmart will fall to mob-like union tactics forcing them to unionize.
Socialized medicine may seem like a good thing to you; unless you are sick, even less so if you are chronically ill.
We have been warning of the dangers, and the short comings, of socialized medicine for a very long time and it is looking more and more as if we are going to have it rammed down our throats by the democrats… whether we want it or not.
Obama enters the Oval Office as perhaps the President who is most committed to the murderous objectives of the environmental movement that took root and have expanded since the 1960s. It is instructive that its impetus was “Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson, a screed against DDT and all chemicals that protect and enhance the lives of human beings, crops and property.
As President George W. Bush prepares to move to his beautiful new home in Texas, let me tell you about another home.
This particular house is considered one of the oddest homes in the entire world. The Winchester Mansion is located in San Jose, California, and sits on 160 acres of land. Although under construction for 38 years, it was never completed because its owner, Sarah Winchester, passed away in 1922.
What so deludes any fool that he thinks Islam will tolerate Israel’s continued existence? What so deludes any fool that he believes the Muslims want a state beside Israel when their demand is a state instead of Israel; “from the river to the sea”?
What Muslims will act in contradiction to Allah’s commands to conquer? What Muslims will abandon Jihad, incurring Allah’s curse and condemning themselves to eternal Hellfire?
Dr. Rice played piano for the Queen, while Islam destroys Western Civilization.
Somali pirates running wild are looting ships at will in the Gulf of Aden and collecting tens of millions in ransom from nations. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have lasted longer than World War II with no end in sight, and India’s major city, Mumbai (colonial Bombay), the largest city in the world with over 18 million people, just last week was terrorized by a well-trained Pakistani military terrorist group, Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Two pending How frequently is the association between Islam and rights violations & terrorism made? Is there an acceptable threshold of frequency, or is any single suggestion of association unacceptable to the UN morality police? Could they perhaps be persuaded to list & enumerated the offensive statements that cause them deep concern?
The deep concern expressed is that Islam is “Wrongly associated” with rights violations & terrorism.
