Category: Political stuff Another chapter in The Emperor’s New Clothes

  And so it goes. President Barack Obama didn’t shy away from the “snub” by Arizona State University officials who said he hadn’t accomplished enough yet to earn an honorary degree. In a commencement speech Wednesday to a stadium full of young graduates, he said the officials were right. “I come here not to dispute the suggestion that I haven’t yet achieved enough in my life,” Obama said. With a smile he added: “First of all, Michelle concurs with that assessment. She has a long list of things that I have not yet done waiting for me when I get continue reading

[edited May 9, 09] The University of Notre Dame is set to crown Barack Obama with an honorary degree — in addition to the invitation to deliver the 2009 commencement address.  So, don’t you wonder how this anti pro-life president will handle the commentary generated from accepting the invitation to address the graduating class of Notre Dame?   You know, what I find so disturbing is that he has the temerity to accept an honourary Doctor of Laws degree — from. a. Catholic. University — no, on second thought, it’s disturbing that the University would confer it on him. This is continue reading

Category: Political stuff The Mothers Act

The MOTHERS ACT has been reintroduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 20 introduced Jan 6th 2009) and the U.S. Senate (S. 324 introduced Jan 26 2009). Messages to members of Congress should be gracious, direct and to the point. “The Mothers Act is a bill which will increase mental health screening of pregnant women and new mothers,despite the fact that the widely accepted treatment for women diagnosed with postpartum depression is antidepressant drugs — documented by the U.S. FDA to cause worsening depression, mania, psychosis, suicidal and homicidal ideation and birth defects. There is no language in continue reading

Category: Political stuff You’ll Have Free Speech (if you agree)

 Another day… what’s next?   Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee has launched a petition against Rush Limbaugh.  This, to me, is amazing — ludicrous, really, in light of the fact that Barack Obama was given a free pass — unwavering acceptance and free coverage by the adoring press for the last 18 months or so. This isn’t a Rush love-in — is not a blanket endorsement of Rush Limbaugh–sincerely, but is an encouragement to be mindful of treasured Constitutional rights. I offer this as an admonition to pay attention regarding the blessing of the rights of citizens of this free nation and continue reading

The irony of headlines… one for preventing birth, one promoting.  Nancy Pelosi will likely regret the faulty logic she’s employing to suggest birthcontrol will help the economy.  A proponent of big huge government, Pelosi seems to forget or ignores the fact that socialism needs lots of new little producers (read: taxpayersandpayersandpayers) to support the regime. The Canon corporation in Japan sees the negative result of low birthrate and is scrambling to reverse the trend of negative population numbers.  Simple economics reveals the crisis of a pregressive nations’ aging population and low birthrate (to support that aged population).  Same thing will continue reading

Category: Political stuff About that Sad Day…

   Now it will begin to be very clear as to why I wrote the blog entry: one-of-the-saddest-days-in-the-history-of-this-nation.  I knew I wasn’t alone in holding that opinion — and I know I’m not alone now.  Tens of millions of *innocent* children — unborn babies — have been murdered in this nation since the legalization and government sanctioned abortions.  It doesn’t seem to matter one iota what George Bush did in his tenure as President — but if nothing else, he did stand for life — he stood in the gap for millions and did so publicly and through legal policy.  continue reading

  Today, Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of these United States of America.  It is a new day in this land as the 44th President began his speech, “My fellow citizens…”   Yes, indeed, change has come to America.  But what is this change, really? I listened to the speech… and I marveled: here is a man who has few (name some?) notable political accomplishments — what track record demonstrates what he says is what he will do.  Nothing really — other than becoming a US Senator, delivering attention grabbing, dazzling speeches, and being elected President continue reading

Category: Political stuff A Book and a Movie

I’m thinking about blind acceptance and emperors… the events of the days behind us and before us and a book and a movie come to mind.  And I wonder what really matters to people — if it matters that there’s nothing there or if there’ll be a little child standing in the crowd pointing out the obvious.  And will anyone there have the courage to see?     The Emperor’s New Clothes… a book.  Being There… a movie. Just thinking.  I remember reading the book as a child, reading to our own children along the way and seeing that movie continue reading

Blind trust is a dangerous thing sometimes.  It’s what makes us vulnerable to accepting things we’d not ordinarily accept and makes us do things we’d not ordinarily do.  Hope’s like that sometimes too.  We sometimes want something so badly that we’ll believe just about anything for that need to be met or filled.  Some will sacrifice just about anything to have deep seated longings fulfilled. When I was six years old my mother was dating a man she would eventually marry. I so wanted to call him daddy.  We took a train to his home and we visited him.  While continue reading
