I know. I know.
Newt is the anti-Mitt. While that’s OK as far as it goes . . . it simply doesn’t go very far. You’d think I’d be downright giddy to have a prolife Catholic convert running for President. Not so much.
A video montage from the Ron Paul campaign captures some of my concerns about Newt. You have any?
In what can only – or at least, most charitably – be described as a confused nation slipping further into the abyss . . .
A gay softball organization has agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to three players who were disqualified from its 2008 Gay Softball World Series because of their perceived heterosexuality. And as part of the settlement announced Monday, their team will be awarded the second-place trophy it was denied at the time. The men — Stephen Apilado, Laron Charles and John Russ — filed the federal lawsuit against the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance last year, claiming they had been discriminated against because they were bisexual, not gay.
But wait, there’s more. The organization had a meeting followed by a limp-wristed show of hands vote. According to the article, Apilado, Charles, and Russ might of been born gay, but they were voted to be straight. At least too straight to play. How democratic! How queer!
I guess just looking fabulous isn’t good enough anymore.
Softball used to be boring. Now it’s disgusting too.
As I opined in Part I, timing is everything.
Like it or not, most would agree with Holy Scripture when the observation is made there is a “time to kill.” At least the police of the City of Atlanta agree.
When officers forced their way into home, they found the woman seated in a chair and stabbing the child, according to Carlos Campos, police spokesman. Hines was ordered to drop the weapon, but did not, so officers fired several shots at the woman, police said.
Seems like a mother, one Carulus Hines was performing a post-partum abortion on her 243 week old fetus. As happens with so many abortions, this one was botched, resulting in the death of both mother and her born child.
So draw your own conclusions and make your own inferences. But wouldn’t it be interesting if police in the City of Atlanta adopted, how would you say, a more consistent approach?
Pay particular attention to the video at about 1:58, when the police official observes “It appears that the officers were responding to save the life of the young child.”
I’m just sayin’.
A woman’s place is in Homeland Security.
I’ve been a guy for my whole life. I have nine sons and four grandsons. I think I speak for guys everywhere when I say that there’s nothing quite as entertaining as things that go boom. Pretty sure that’s why the Founding Fathers came up with the Second Amendment. Getting to dispatch tyrants was just icing on the entertainment cake.
So it was with some interest that I note that Janet Napolitano latest public service directive. You probably know Janet as the Director or Czar or something of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Maybe you’ve heard her referred to – both affectionately and derisively – as “Big Sis”, an oblique reference to her Orwellian omnipresence in our daily lives. Still others think of her as the greatest female impersonator since Eleanor Roosevelt – if you don’t count Janet Reno.
In any event, Janet has weighed in with some suggestions – I think she actually intended it as a warning – on the impact on National Security that arises when guys with WASPish surnames and backward ball caps everywhere are dropping turkeys into fryers designed for that purpose. The DHS warning also includes a video that shows what can happen if you impose your morality on a not quite thawed bird. Cool.
While this opens up alternatives to mixing dry ice and water and acetylene in garbage bags, I guess this means that you will no longer get that device, formerly used to fry turkeys, past those ever-vigilant TSA watchmen at airport security. Unless you can hide it under a turban, of course.
Janet has proven once again that any semblance of jurisdictional limits are erased. Homeland Security – Homeland Security! – is telling us how to cook Thanksgiving dinner. She’s also proven that we’ve become a nation of emasculated imbeciles that cast our eyes upon Capitol Hill from whence cometh our help. Sheesh!
And, finally, by offering this sage – and parsley, rosemary, and thyme – cooking advice Janet shows us that that no matter how much she tries to repress it; no matter how latent the inclination, a woman’s place is in the home.
Winner really does take it all.
It may very well be that the Communists, who are so anti-Christ, are closer to Him than those who see Him as a sentimentalist and vague moral reformer. The Communists have at least decided that if He wins, they lose; the others are afraid to consider Him either as winning or losing, because they are not prepared to meet the moral demands which this victory would make on their souls.
If He is what He claimed to be, a Savior, a Redeemer, then we have a virile Christ and a leader worth following in these terrible times; One Who will step into the breach of death, crushing sin, gloom and despair; a leader to Whom we can make totalitarian sacrifice without losing, but gaining freedom, and Whom we can love even unto death. We need a Christ today Who will make cords and drive the buyers and sellers from our new temples; Who will blast the the unfruitful fig-trees; Who will talk of crosses and sacrifices and Whose voice will be like the voice of the raging sea. But He will not allow us to pick and choose among His words, discarding the hard ones, and accepting the ones that please our fancy. We need a Christ Who will restore moral indignation, Who will make us hate evil with a passionate intensity, and love goodness to a point where we can drink death like water.

Curtis Boyd boasts about a lot of things: being an ordained Baptist minister and, oh yeah, killing unborn children. He even brags that he’s not going to quit. On that point, Curtis and I have some disagreement. He also is proud of the fact that he’s aborted the children of girls as young as nine and ten.
Could he, like so many other abortionists, be providing cover for child molesters who impregnate young girls? Naah.
