To torture or not

Well the campaign to make Americans hate America continues. Today we have Chris Satullo of the once proud Philadelphia Inquirerbemoaning torture. And telling us we aren't worthy of celebrating the fourth. Note I say "once proud Philadelphia Inquirer" because no paper who publishes such trash, even as opinion, is worthy of being read....note I didn't say not published...just not worthy of being read.

And the media moguls can't figure out why they are losing their collective rear ends...

The torture issue appears to be a seasonal thing, designed to make us feel bad just when the calender says we should be having fun. The last get go was December '07.

At that time I posted this, and I stand behind it.

Oh, really?? Let me pose a scenario to you. This afternoon you drive over to your local shopping center to shop. As you get out of your car you see an elderly lady walking towards her car one row over. You can also see two young thugs semi crouched between two cars, obviously waiting to mug her. As you start to move, one of the thugs sees you and makes a threatening gesture. Do you yell at her? Run at the thugs? Honk your horn? Dial 911? Or stand frozen in place, watching them jump out, grab her purse, knock her down and dash off?

If you chose to do nothing, I submit that you have just committed an immoral act. You have committed a sin of omission. We are our brother’s keeper.

So if you are charged with finding information from terrorist prisoners, and if you truly believe that the prisoner has vital information, I see no problem with waterboarding. In fact, I find you guilty of not trying to protect me, which is your job. In fact, if you let me be harmed when you could have acted to prevent it, I think you are guilty of a sin. The sin of omission.

You know, this stuff isn't all that complicated for anyone with just a smidgen of real education topped off with a tad bit of common sense.

Too bad the Left appears to have none of either.

Worth repeating

Got this from David.

I was depressed last night so I called Lifeline.

Got a call center in Pakistan.

I told them I was suicidal.

They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck.

Thanks Dave!

Reason No. 2 why I will vote for McCain

Just when I think I have read all of the stupid things possible to be done, I read thus.

But, if the dean of the Massachusetts School of Law, Lawrence Velvel, gets his way, that's the punishment a group of legal scholars and advocates will attempt to mete on Mr. Bush after he leaves the White House.

Mr. Velvel will host a conference in September aimed at preparing war crimes prosecutions against the president and members of his administration. Mr. Velvel hopes that the meeting will lay the groundwork "to pursue the guilty as long as necessary," according to a column he wrote for OpedNews.com. "Because domestic politics are obviously useless for holding the guilty accountable, we must try to do what was done in the 1940s to the leaders of nations who committed evil. We must try to have them held accountable in courts of law. And we must insist on appropriate punishments, including, if guilt is found, the hangings visited upon top Germans and Japanese."

You do realize, don't you, that the citizens of MA pay this guy? You do realize, don't you, that the school undoubtedly gets federal grants for this and that, so that means you are also paying this guy with your hard earned dollars?

And you do realize that if Hussein is elected the inmates will be totally in charge of the asylum?

Hat tip to William Katz.

Hussein plans on funding Muslim....Christian

...Jews and other religious groups.

CHICAGO - Reaching out to evangelical voters, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is announcing plans to expand President Bush's program steering federal social service dollars to religious groups and — in a move sure to cause controversy — support some ability to hire and fire based on faith.

And don't misunderstand. If you can do it for one group you must do it for all groups.

Of course I expect that the ACLU will be all over this...(sarcasm alert)

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

But here is the truly scary part.

But Obama's support for letting religious charities that receive federal funding consider religion in employment decisions could invite a storm of protest from those who view such faith requirements as discrimination.

Obama does not support requiring religious tests for recipients of aid nor using federal money to proselytize, according to a campaign fact sheet. He also only supports letting religious institutions hire and fire based on faith in the non-taxypayer funded portions of their activities, said a senior adviser to the campaign, who spoke on condition of anonymity to more freely describe the new policy.

Plainer. That is an open door for Muslim groups to keep out non-Muslims. We already have problems with schools. Must we pay for it?

If you want to see where this will lead, look at Great Britain. Look at Europe.

This country was founded based on keeping government out of religion and religion out of government.

Wise men those founders.

Oliver Stone does Bush

I love Michael Moore, but I didn't want to make that kind of movie," Stone said of "Fahrenheit 9/11." "W.," he said, "isn't an overly serious movie, but it is a serious subject. It's a Shakespearean story. . . . I see it as the strange unfolding of American democracy as I have lived it."

Oliver Stone is to Shakespeare as a JuJu bracelet is to penicillin.



for a second there I thought they weren't gonna take our money!

BTW - Do any Muslims have any money? Must not because I never see them helping otheer Muslims.... except to set up schools and such...
