A Couple Of Observations...

* The recent onslaught of liberals making accusations against anything that doesn't have a big D in front of his/her name, combined with the recent push to get WMD's and the reasons for Iraq war back in the news, smells of an organized anti-Bush blitz. They waited until Bush got a few months into his second term and then tried to open a battlefront at Bush's front door. So far they've shot all duds. They aimed at Cheney and got one of his aides on a totally unrelated charge. They cried that we needed to bring the troops home now and when the Republicans called their bluff and made them vote on it, they shriveled up. Is that all you libbies got??

* I believe it was Immanuel Kant (It was one of the skeptics) that once said "If a statement cannot be tested by science then it should be tossed to the fire." I am convinced that an extremely high percentage of naturalists and believers in evolution agree with that statement whole heartedly. The problem of course is that the statement is not testable by science, therefore it is a self-defeating statement and should be tossed to the fire. So often, statements like this that are made by scientists or philosophers are just given a pass. Does the law of non-contradiction only apply to theists and creationists?

Happy Holidays!

There is nothing more sick than a bunch of holiday shoppers that care more for a sale than whether or not they are trampling someone under their feet. Yesterday several people were trampled at a Walmart in West Michigan. You can actually see it on video right here. What possesses people to even go shopping on Black Friday? I'd sooner pour salt in my eyes than to go shopping on a day like that. What has made us so cold as a nation that we'd trample people in order for a few bucks off of an item? The people on the video claim it was lack of security that was the problem. Maybe...But could it be that lack of priorities and moral compass are more to blame? The answer is clear. If I had my way I think we'd cancel the tradition of gift giving on Christmas. It just makes no sense. "YAY! Our Savior was born, so here's a new blender." Huh?

Give Thanks To The Lord!

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocing voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that helf Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I knoww that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Free Advice For Any Cable
News Station That Isn't Fox News

I am introducing a new segment here at the big TLAT. I am going to hand out free advice to those I deem are in need of it.
Fox news blows the other stations out of the water in ratings, often 2 to 1. In this case CNN and MSNBC need my help and I aims to give em some. So if you are a cable news channel and you aren't Fox News, listen up and take heed.

* CNN is a boring name. The Fox hunts out it's prey with extreme prejudice. It demands respect. CNN stands for "Cable News Network", that's like naming your son "Male Offspring". So I suggest a name change for CNN, possibly something like Viper News. "Here at Viper News, we hunt down news and inject our venom into it and kill it unmercifully so that you the viewer get the full story without the spin." Now that is a network that demands to be watched!

* MSNBC is a conglomerate of Microsoft and NBC. With the recent corporate scandals a lot of people don't trust large companies, especially Microsoft. NBC needs to find a new computer company to hook up with that won't bring up those memories of corporate greed. I suggest that NBC join up with the fine company that once was, Commodore 64. We may have to wait up to an hour for the station to load on our televisions but at least we won't be lining Bill Gates' pockets. Plus C64-NBC has a retro sound to it which is cool.

* The reason that Fox news gets such big ratings is because it isn't slanted to the left in their coverage. Before Fox came along the only opinion you could get on the TV or the radio was liberal. I think that people are refreshed by the fact that Fox isn't giving you false advertising about who they are, while CNN and MSNBC claim to be unbiased yet clearly lean to the left. So I suggest that CNN and MSNBC (or Viper news and C64-NBC, if they have already taken my first advice) start taking pride in their slanted coverage. They should have slogans that say who they are. I'd watch it then because I'd know what I was getting. The slogans could say it all, "CNN, liberal and loving it!" or "MSNBC, We still believe that Clinton did not have sex with Monica Lewinsky." Here are some bonus slogan ideas... "CNN, because terrorists are people too"...."Choose MSNBC for all your communist propaganda"....."We could say we don't want Hillary to be president, but then of course we'd be lying. We're CNN"...."MSNBC, watched by more ACLU activists and porn stars than any other network."

* Finally, CNN, Stop marking Vice Presidents with giant X's as if you would like to see them snubbed. That might help.

I hope that helps out the two underdogs. I mean it is pretty sad that CNN especially has been around so many years yet has fallen so badly in the ratings. And remember, my service is free of charge so no need to pay me for my highly useful advice. Thank you and good night!

Cindy Sheehan: War Profiteer

Cindy Sheehan isn't done milking us for all she can. It's bad enough she belittled her son's heroidm by belittling the entire U.S. war effort. Now she has written a book , which of course was satirically yet accurately predicted here at The Life And Times. A mother has a right to mourn, but after the tours and the books and the publicity stunts, don't we have a right to question her motives? Of course, I mean it is our soldiers and marines that she is putting in harms way.

What Is Your Dream Concert?

What if you could have any 3 artists or bands, alive or dead, together at one concert? Who would you choose?

My opening artist would probably be Otis Redding. He would get things fired up. And then after a long set, out comes Jim Croce to sort of bring it down a notch. And then topping the night off would be Sam Cooke from when he was in his prime. The last song of the night of course would be Bring It On Home with special guest Lou Ralls.

That concert can't be topped...But go ahead and try anyway!

Question Of The Day

Why do democrats hate Walmart?

The answer is pretty obvious to me, but I want to read your take on it before I comment.

Liberal Hypocrisy and Outright Lies

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I started reading an outstanding book by Peter Schweizer called Do As I Say (Not As I Do) : Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy. It's a fantastic read so far. I recommend it to everyone. I knew Michael Moore was a liar, I didn't realize how big of a liar he was or how much his pants are definitely on fire...

*Mr Schweizer's research revealed that Michael Moore, even after he said that he was going to "hire ONLY black" to further the cause, went on to hire only white people. In fact in all of Michael's years of film and TV he has hired 3 black people out of a total of 134 producers, editors, and cameramen. Moore has shaken his finger in the face of America for not taking a "very strong affirmative action policy". Yet he publicly shows no desire to implement that himself. I guess morals and ethics are for other people.

* Check this one out.. Here is a direct quote from Michael Moore.. "I don't own a single share of stock."
"How then did author Peter Schweizer uncover IRS documents showing that Moore's very own foundation has bought stocks in some of America's largest corporations – including Halliburton, other defense contractors and some of the same companies he has attacked?"

* Noam Chomsky, a self described communist and America hater has railed against capitalism since the 70's. He has gone around the world declaring that America is single-handedly responsible for all the evils in this world. He is beloved by the left for his outspokenness against the Pentagon and the military, calling it "the most hideous institution on this earth", and he has much hatred for any and all corporations. He has brought many a hate speech against the top money earners in America...
Well shock and awe, guess what. Mr. Chomsky, as revealed in this book, has a net worth of $2 million. How did he get that money? Why you guessed it, through "pentagon contracts, lucrative real estate holdings, stock market wealth, and even a tax-sheltered trust for his children", which is a tactic that only the wealthiest among us can get away with. His first book was funded by grants from the military, and his position at MIT is mainly funded by the pentagon. As evil as he thinks those organizations are, he certainly doesn't seem to mind taking money from them.

This is a drop in the bucket. It makes me sick. Of course we are all prone to hypocrisy now and then, none of us get a pass on that, but to watch these guys wag their finger and spew hatered at everyday Americans makes me want say a thing or two, so get ready for more fun facts about liberal hypocrisy.

Christian Persecution In America?
Not Yet But Our Time Is Coming

This is a rerun of an earlier post of mine but I thought it would be appropriate today...
I've talked about this before but it bears repeating. I believe that persecution of Christians is spreading throughout the world. We Christians here in America do not know how good we have it. In China they are attending church underground. In other parts of Asia and Africa they have to jump major hurdles just to have a church. So are we free and clear here in America?

This is where we are. In America protestant Christianity remains the only religion that is fair and open game to be dragged through the mud on television and in movies. It's usually subtle but recently especially on TV there seems to be a jab at Christians in almost every new show. Ususally they portray Christians as being fanatics and hatemongers. Hollywood will mock the religious majority like they were some sort of societal freaks.
Being a Simpsons fan I have watched pretty much every episode ever made. Slowly throughout that show's run I have watched Christianity increasingly become a mockery more and more times. It eventually went beyond Ned Flanders the flawed but lovable religious neighbor. In a recent episode the show took a shot at the crucifixion ("The salad of the Christ") that was so offensive that I became angry and simply shut off the TV for the rest of the night.

No other religion is attacked like this. But we should absolutely not be surprised by it. It will continue to happen and it will happen with more gusto. Jesus told us not to be shocked by what will be done in the future to believers.
This is where my prediction comes in:

I believe that Christianity, mainly protestant evangelical, will continue to be subtly mocked by the elitist media for the next 65 years. I think it will remain subtle yet slightly increase up until then. Somewhere around 65 years from now the persecution of Christians in North America will begin slowly. At first it will be some kind of registration program with churches, and public churches will begin to be regulated by the government. Possibly some sort of religion tax will begin. Probably at first this will include most religions. For the next 50 years the persecution of "Born-again" Christians will be brought into more prominence. After this all hell will break loose as it already has at this point in most of the world, Christians will be registered and monitored heavily. Soon full blown religious persecution will be throughout the entire world. Christians will probably either be put into camps or killed not unlike the Jews during WWII. Eventually it will not be safe for Christians to live publicly anywhere in the world.

Actually this really isn't my prediction, It comes straight out of the Bible. I'm simply putting my timeframe on it. And to be honest a lot of Christians believe that it will happen way before I stated above. But there is no denying that it will happen if you are a believer in God's Word. Ignore books like "Left Behind" and concentrate on the source.

And guess what...The ACLU will be the ones that head the whole thing up from the beginning. Gee, they seem to be practicing now. That's right, the very ACLU that supposedly supports and fights for the constitution (yeah right) will be at the forefront of making sure that Christians, who founded this country and based it's governing document upon the foundations of Christianity, have no rights as afforded in the constitution.

As for right now we ought to get on our knees as believers and thank God daily for where we live and the freedom we have because it isn't going to be like this forever. And unfortunately I think our days of ease in this country are shorter than we realize.

I don't mean to get all Jack Van Impe on everyone, I just feel like we had better bring this up every once in awhile so we can be thankful for what we have now

New Look!

TLAT has a new look. It's a little drab right now but over the next weeks I will be tweaking it so that it'll be better than ever. I hope my 3 loyal readers enjoy the change!

Stupidest Fashion Idea Ever...

I've talked about my hatred for pre-ripped up clothes before, but this takes the cake...
Abercrombie, which is a lame company anyway, has decided to try and sell you these jeans for...get this...$79.50! The ad says this:
100% cotton, sits low below your waist, inconsistently scarred with handcrafted abrasions, over worn fading, blown out holes, random paint splatters, dirt and grass stains, button fly, Destroyed Wash, Low Rise Boot Fit, Imported
Who in their right mind would buy these? You can make a pair of $19.95 jeans look just like this in 5 minutes.
I must be turning into my parents because I can't understand the fads or the mindset of kids these days. And you know what, the thought of turning into my parents used to make me cringe, but I am really starting to embrace it. Makes me miss my Transformers lunch pail for some reason.

Saddam's Top Aide: Dead

I just wanted to drop in a short note here. I hope everyone heard Bush's brilliant speech today where he lashed out at democrats for trying to "rewrite history" with their lies about how and why the war was waged. I was cheering.

Anyway, today Saddam's top aide that is still left is dead. Izzat Ibrahim is gone. He was number six in the 'most wanted' deck of cards. The five before him have all been captured. The media has little reported how huge a feat this was and how Bush got it done. This was the equivalent of finding 6 needles in a swimming pool full of needles. Bush said in his speech today that we WILL not quit until we have total victory, and we have a long way to go...But look how far we have come. I just can't fathom how huge a task it was to capture so many of the most wanted alive. This is one of the many reasons why Bush will go down in history as one of the greats.

At least some of them have a sense of humor about it.

Top Ten Reasons To Stop The ACLU

Crossposted From StopTheACLU

Stop The ACLU was started on February 9th, 2004. We started with high hopes, and we realized we were facing a goliath. There were many reasons why we thought the ACLU needed to be countered, and they are numerous. We wanted to provide a way to inform the public of the ACLU's agenda, as the MSM sugar coated it. We wanted to be a central database for people to gather, exchange ideas, and get actively involved in real ways of stopping them. It is a monumental task, exhausting, time consuming, and often frustrating. But it is a fight worth fighting.

We would be nothing without our supporters. To all of you, we appreciate the continued support. We have called you to action and you have answered. We raised $2,500.00 for an ad in the Washington Times, and I want to announce at this time that the check is in the mail as of Wednessday, Nov 8th. The ad should appear within the next two weeks. When it does, it will be scanned, and put up at Stop The ACLU for all to see. We will call you to action again, and again, and it is good to know that you will answer the call because you believe in this cause.

The ACLU have been laying low lately, but that is no reason to grow complacent. It is now that we should prepare to counter them. The Christmas season is around the corner, and the ACLU will be full force. Get involved in Operation Nativity.

There are many reasons to stop the ACLU. For this blogburst I decided to list my top ten list.

10. The ACLU was founded by Communist, with communist ideals, communist goals, and they continue to impose a Communist like agenda on America daily. The founder of the ACLU, Roger Baldwin stated clearly...

My chief aversion is the system of greed, private profit, privilege and violence which makes up the control of the world today, and which has brought it to the tragic crisis of unprecedented hunger and unemployment…Therefore, I am for Socialism, disarmament and ultimately, for the abolishing of the State itself…I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal."

9. The ACLU do not belive in the Second Amendment.

ACLU POLICY "The ACLU agrees with the Supreme Court's long-standing interpretation of the Second Amendment [as set forth in the 1939 case, U.S. v. Miller] that the individual's right to bear arms applies only to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia. Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected. Therefore, there is no constitutional impediment to the regulation of firearms."ACLU Policy #47

#8. Their outright hatred of the Boyscouts. They are currently doing everything in their power to hurt this organization. They attacked their free speech right to exclude gays, and are threatening schools, and fighting in court to get their charters shut down. The oppose the military supporting them, and will sue the pants off any school that attempts to charter them.

#7. The ACLU are pro-death. Not only is the ACLU Pro-abortion, it's the ACLU's top priority. It most definitely takes a backseat to free speech for the ACLU. As a matter of fact, the ACLU has fought against the free speech rights of those that oppose it. If its abortion or euthanasia, as long as its pro-death you can count on the ACLU to support it. The only exception to the ACLU's pro-death stance, is if it is a convicted criminal; in this case they are against death.

#6. The ACLU advocate open borders. Not only have the ACLU opposed the Minute Men, a group who are simply exercizing their freedom of speech, protesting and stepping up where the government is failing, but they have helped illegals cross the border.

#5. The ACLU is anti-Christian. The list is endless on this one. Under the guise of "seperation of Church and State", the ACLU have made a name for theirself on being rabidly anti-Christian. This is one area where they are most hypocritical. The oppose tax exemptions for all churches, but fight for them for Wiccans. They are against Christianity in school, but oddly remain silent as our children are taught to be Muslims. Whether its baby Jesus, ten commandments, or tiny crosses on county seals, the ACLU will be there to secularize America, and rewrite our history.

#4. The ACLU Opposes National Security. The ACLU have opposed almost every effort in the arena of national security. From the bird flu to bag searches, the ACLU have been against it. No matter what kind of search someone tries to do to protect people, the ACLU have proved they are against them across the board. Its kind of ironic that they don't practice the principles they preach.

Take a walk into the NYCLU's Manhattan headquarters - which it shares with other organizations - and you'll find a sign warning visitors that all bags are subject to search.

#3. The ACLU Defend the enemy. They have a long history of this one. They defended the P.L.O. in 1985. They defended Quadafi in the 1980's. And they continue today. They have told Gitmo detainees they have the right to remain silent, as in not talking to interrogators. One issue that really disturbs me is their refusal of funds from organizations such as the United Way that were concerned the money would be used to support terrorism.

In October of 2004, the ACLU turned down $1.15 million in funding from two of it's most generous and loyal contributors, the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, saying new anti-terrorism restrictions demanded by the institutions make it unable to accept their funds.

"The Ford Foundation now bars recipients of its funds from engaging in any activity that "promotes violence, terrorism, bigotry, or the destruction of any state."

The Rockefeller Foundation's provisions state that recipients of its funds may not "directly or indirectly engage in, promote, or support other organizations or individuals who engage in or promote terrorist activity."

#2. The ACLU supports child porn distribution and child molesters like NAMBLA.

As legislative counsel for the ACLU in 1985, Barry Lynn told the U.S. Attorney General's Commission on Pornography (of which Focus on the Family President Dr. James C. Dobson was a member) that child pornography was protected by the First Amendment. While production of child porn could be prevented by law, he argued, its distribution could not be.

There is no doubt the The ACLU are perverting the Constitution.

#1. The ACLU fufills its agenda using my tax money. What more can I say on this one?

There are countless reasons the ACLU needs to be stopped. So don't just stand by and complain, do something. Get involved. Here are some ways you can get involved to help us stop the ACLU.

Support and donate to organizations fighting them in Court. Here are the ones at the forefront.

Alliance Defense Fund
Thomas More Law Center

Join the Stop The ACLU Coalition

Help us write Churches to get involved.

Tell your Congress to support the Public Expression of Relgion Act of 2005. This legislation seeks to limit attorney's fees in Establishment Clause cases to injunctive relief only.

Proud To Live In Kansas

The Kansas BOE has successfully added alternate science teachings to it's curriculum. If we can stand up to all the ridicule then we will come out better on the other side. The atheistic science community is in attack mode over this. Their theory MUST not have any competition and they will verbally crush anyone who deviates from their theoretical path. The big bang and evolution are nothing more than shoddy guess work. To give evolution such a pass is very belittling to the scientific method. No other theory would hold up.

Anyway, I'm glad that Kansas kids will get both sides of the story. Isn't it just good science to question evolution and offer up possible alternatives??

Run Hillary Run!

Why are conservatives suggesting that Hillary Clinton shouldn't run for President in 2008? Here are a couple of reasons why I think she should...

* She will break her promise to the state of New York to stay full term in the senate, that is if she is reelected in 2006. If she is defeated in 2006 then her chances of winning in 2008 will be that much worse. Politicians who break promises to run for higher offices generally don't care about people, they care about power. And that fits since we know that Hillary is one of the more power hungry women to ever step foot in Washington.

* Hillary has had to answer literally NO hard questions from the press about her husband, her past dealings with unethical law practices, or her push for power while she was still on the First Lady. That will all change if she becomes a candidate for the Presidency. No candidate has ever been afforded a pass by the media. I can think of nothing better than to watch Hillary tumble over her words after someone asks her about Watergate or Bill's affairs.

Let me be understood, a Hillary presidency would be an utter disaster. She is a unabashed socialist and a angry femi-nazi. But I think that getting some answers from her about her life will be a learning experience for us all. So I say let Hillary run, and let her be defeated. Can you imagine the blow to liberalism that would be!? I can't wait!

A Couple Of Observations

* I have a friend who recently became a vegan. That means absolutely no food or products that come from any animal or animal by-product whatsoever, even if it doesn't kill the animal. They can't even use real soap because it comes from animal fat. For protein they eat various nuts. Ok, I have several questions for vegans... Do you realize that, given the chance, a bear or a tiger would eat you without batting an eye? Nearly every animal in nature hunts and unmercifully slaughters other animals for nourishment to stay alive.. Do you realize that if this didn't happen then the planet would cease to exist as we know it? Every living thing would die if animals didn't eat one another because of over population and scarcity of natural resources. That means humans too. So I say eat your meat with pride knowing that you are helping save the planet!

* Along the lines of the above observation... Most P.E.T.A (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) members are probably believers in evolution. I have no data to back that claim up, so take this next observation with a grain of salt. If you believe in evolution, and survival of the fittest, how can you possibly be against eating other animals? Other animals would eat you limb for limb if given a chance. Dogs have even been known to eat people in certain circumstances. PETA is a radical liberal group that cares more for animals than they do the human race. Which again makes no sense, if evolution is true then we are just animals as well, highly evolved, but animals none the less. Why care for one animal over another? We are the fitter of the animal kingdom. We won! We evolved enough to have reign over every other animal...That's a huge feat, so if you don't mind I'm gonna celebrate by having myself a nice steak while wearing my fur coat...Thank you, so very much.

Further Adventures Of The Hypocrite Left

I have found my next read. All of my other political books have been put on hold while I read the book pictured on my left. From what I have heard it is going to be a fine read. Also from what I hear, Al Franken is steaming mad about this book and threatening to sue. When I heard that I knew this was my kind of book because as you may already know: Al Franken is a stark raving lunatic. An Amazon.com reviewer claims the book is "meticulously researched" which really helps the author's case.
Apparently, Michael Moore has really been outed in this book. And if what Newsmax is reporting is true, the book claims that Moore actually held stock in Haliburton and other major corporations, something he specifically said he would never do. That alone is worth reading about.
If I am correct, this book should be great blog fodder. It's time for me to get back into the liberal bash that this blog once was..not that I ever stopped calling libs on their insanity. Anyway, go buy this book, I know I will.

Stop The ACLU Thursday 11/3/05

crossposted from stoptheaclu.com

In recent days we have been bombarded with news concerning the Bush Administration and its troubles with the Valerie Plame idiocy. And as tempting as it is to talk about that and Rep. Tom Delay's victories in Texas, this is a subject oriented blog and this is Stop The ACLU BlogBurst Thursday.

It seems from my email alerts that the Most Dangerous Organization in America is concerning themselves mainly with voter ID requirements in various states and prayers being said in local council meetings. Don't these idiots have a life?

From the ACLU:

ALBUQUERQUE --The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico filed a lawsuit today asking a federal court to declare Albuquerque's recently passed Voter ID Amendment "unconstitutional, illegal, null and void."

The new law requires people who vote in person to present a "current valid identification card containing the voter's name and photograph." Among the acceptable forms of identification are a driver's license, a credit card, and a voter identification card issued by the City Clerk. Absentee voters are exempt from any photo ID requirements.

"If you're poor or homeless, there's a good chance you don't have any of the permissible forms of identification," said ACLU Executive Director Peter Simonson. "Wealth shouldn't determine your ability to participate in democracy. Americans shouldn't have to jump through unnecessary hoops to exercise their constitutionally-guaranteed right to vote."
Why are people traveling around without identification in the first place. At minimum ID should be carried in the event of an accident. It is a no brainier to require an ID to vote. How else would the elections officials be able to tell if you are who you say you are?

Across this nation we hear stories of people registering their dogs and dead relatives. This is voter fraud. And the simplest solution to combat voter fraud is requiring ID to vote.

The ACLU's contention that this is an effort to suppress the poor vote which is heavily Democratic is nothing more than a political temper tantrum. The ACLU would like voter registration to remain as is because it allows people to vote more than once.

In other news, the ACLU of Tennessee is asking the 6th District Court of Appeals to uphold a ruling by a lower court which barred "Choose Life" license plates. Excuse me... But didn't a case like this in Ohio just get settled? And if I'm not mistaken, the Choose Life plates won out.

From the ACLU

CINCINNATI - The American Civil Liberties Union today asked the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a lower court ruling blocking an anti-abortion specialty license plate in Tennessee, saying that the plate discriminates against opposing viewpoints.

"When the state of Tennessee approved an anti-abortion license plate and failed to do the same for a pro-choice plate, it effectively cut off public discussion,"" said Julie Sternberg, Senior Staff Attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, who argued the case today before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. "The lower court made clear that the state cannot open up a forum for public debate on abortion without allowing both sides an equal opportunity to express their position. We are hopeful that the appeals court will do the same."

The law in question makes a "Choose Life" license plate available to motorists for an annual fee of $35 over and above the basic costs of registering a car in the state. Fifty percent of all funds raised, after expenses, go to a private anti-choice organization called New Life Resources. The legislature twice rejected an amendment that would have authorized a "Pro Choice"" specialty plate.

This is the same old argument against the right of a state to govern themselves. The members of Politburo take every opportunity to trample on the states' 10th guarantees by getting a panel of black robed Kings by Committee to make decisions as to what is best for the citizens; taking away the power of guaranteed them through the system of representative government.

The people have representatives to their state governments to make decisions like these. And when necessary, the people themselves take a popular vote on issues. But God forbid if the people or their elected officials make a decision which differs from the ACLU's agenda. Ooops, I'm sorry, we can't mention God. But we can mention Satan, Allah, the Spirits of the 4 winds, or any other Deity just as long as it isn't God or mentions the name Jesus.

Specialty license places are used to raise money for various charities. From protecting the wildlife of a state to private organizations, people select these plates to show their support of the cause. This is the vary argument made in the Ohio case.

Moving on we get to the Cobb County prayer case. The ACLU has their panties in a twist over a prayer being said using the words, "in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." Oh no! A town dares to challenge the ACLU over religion! Savages... Don't they know that rules of PC tolerance forbids the mention of the Judeo/Christian Deity?

Cobb County is fighting the ACLU suit by filing a 50 page brief. In the brief, the County makes a point of fact, "As a matter of historical fact, the exact prayers given in the first Congress explicitly referred to Jesus Christ."

As we have seen in this past year if a historical context can be attached to a religious reference it is permissible. The US Supreme Court ruled in July that a memorial containing the 10 Commandments could remain in front of a court house citing its historical context.

So if it is permissible for the House of Representatives of the United States to refer to the Christian savior in its first session, what right has anyone to tell a local government that they cannot follow that tradition? None.

It seems to me that these idiots can be pursuing cases where real civil liberties are being violated. Wait, that is over with isn't it. The government of the United States no longer discriminates against anyone regardless of race, creed, national origin, sex, sexual preference, or handicap. So they haven't any real horse in a race. So they remain relevant by prosecuting legal actions against local governments. And in this way, they put forward their founder's vision for America. "Communism is the goal." - Roger Baldwin 1935.

Did Miers Throw The Nomination?

Did Bush purposefully select Harriet Miers so that she would get rejected or quit so that it would unify the conservatives?
Probably not, but what do you think?
