Who Voted For/Against The Further Socialization Of America
News you can use

Here's the link straight from the Clerk of the House of Representatives for the by name results of the roll call vote.

Here's the bottom line; 140 Democrats voted in favor, 95 against.
65 Republicans voted in favor, 133 against. 1 NV.
By the way... I've made no secret that I consider President Bush a prime example of a RepubliCrat. But isn't it strange that the Democrats are going after him with everything they've got?

Hey, Nancy Slice and Dice... have you noticed that Bush is one of your biggest supporters?

So who's "playing politics", again?
Sheep To Slaughter
Why Barack Hussein Obama will be our next president

WARNING!! Harsh language alert

That bleating sound you hear is the American public. And they vote.

And my fellow political conservatives damn well better accept that fact. As I've said in the past, the average American has the attention span of a gnat and cares a helluva lot more about image over substance. For many... AND I MEAN MANY... it's all about selling the sizzle, not the steak.

If I hear one more Karl Rove wannabe say "well, you know McCain actually won the debate, but...", I swear to everything holy, I'm gonna reach through the TV and choke the living shit outta someone.

By the way, if McCain really did "win the debate", then why in the hell is Obama kickin' ass in the Rasmussen and Gallup Polls?

I'll tell you why. Democrats speak like they mean it. What they say is essentially bullshit, but damn it --- THEY MEAN IT! And I tell you what, fellow conservatives, McCain doesn't.

That frickin' human snooze machine needs an injection of adrenaline, à la Pulp Fiction, prior to the remaining debates if he hopes for even a chance of victory in November.

Let me say something else that many conservatives REFUSE to come to grips with -- one can be a total dipshit, and still vote.

No where in the Constitution does it say that the electorate be well versed on the issues. No where in the Constitution does it say that the electorate has to exercise common sense. No where in the Constitution does it say that the electorate even utilize half a brain.

All you need to be is over the age of 18 and have a physiology that exchanges oxygen for carbon dioxide... and with damn few exceptions, yo' ass can vote. Freakin' period.

As long as the Democrats continue to win the Battle of the Oh-Wow-Factor, we all better prepare ourselves for an Obama Presidency. Or to put it in baseball parlance, McCain needs to stop hitting solid singles, and smack a few grand slam taters outta the park.

Capice?

Latest On The Endangered Species List: A Real Catholic Leader
A true Rottweiler among Cockapoos

Thank God for Archbishop Burke. And SHAME on the utter vast majority of the USCCB. Shockingly enough... here's some of the article from the Catholic News Service; (Emphasis mine) U.S. archbishop at Vatican says Democrats becoming 'party of death'

ROME (CNS) -- The Democratic Party in the United States "risks transforming itself definitively into a 'party of death,'" said U.S. Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, prefect of the Vatican's highest court.

Archbishop Burke was asked if he knew that the August Democratic National Convention in Denver featured a guest appearance by Sheryl Crow, a musician whose performance at a 2007 benefit for a Catholic children's hospital the archbishop had opposed because of her support for abortion and embryonic stem-cell research.

"That does not surprise me much," the archbishop said. "At this point the Democratic Party risks transforming itself definitely into a 'party of death' because of its choices on bioethical questions as Ramesh Ponnuru wrote in his book, 'The Party of Death: The Democrats, the Media, the Courts and the Disregard for Human Life.'"

Archbishop Burke also was asked about being one of a few U.S. bishops to publicly ban Catholic politicians who hold positions contrary to church teaching from receiving Communion.

"Mine was not an isolated position," the archbishop said. "It was shared by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver, by Bishop Peter J. Jugis of Charlotte (N.C.) and by others."

"But it is true that the bishops' conference has not taken this position, leaving each bishop free to act as he believes best. For my part, I always have maintained that there must be a united position in order to demonstrate the unity of the church in facing this serious question," he said.

The newspaper asked Archbishop Burke if he ever wondered why the issue of Communion for Catholic politicians was almost unheard of in Europe, where abortion is legal in most countries.

"I don't know if Catholic politicians in Europe are more coherent, although I would have some doubts," he said. However, he said, "I am convinced that [T]he [C]hurch must always be very clear on this point."
And a good starting point would be by shit-canning the USCCB.
So Caveman, What Do You Think Of The $700,000, (Jeez, Don't These Zeros EVER End!?) 000,000 Bail-Out?
Glad you asked...

I've coined a new phrase: Economic Darwinism.

What exactly is Economic Darwinism? Simple... anyone too stupid to do simple math or understand the meaning of balloon payment deserves to die.

Know Your Lawmakers!!
First in a series of many...

In the very first posting under this topic, I introduce to you, Representative Barney "Don't Leave Your Buddies Behind" Frank (D-Sodom).

Yes, yes - the very same The Purple Dinosaur of Love that we've all seen on TV over and over and over and over and over as one of the Movers & Shakers (no pun intended) behind the $700 Gajillion bail-out of Wall Street scumbags.

Let's not forget, fellow Bloglodytes, this is the same Barney Frank that; ...had purchased the services of a live-in lover and allowed him to operate a homosexual prostitution service from the congressman's Washington apartment.

The Times revealed that Mr. Frank knew that his prostitute lover, Steve Gobie, was on probation in Virginia for cocaine possession, oral sodomy and sex offenses involving a juvenile...
And Back-Door Barney had no idea that a homosexual prostitution ring was being run out of his home? Seriously, he had no idea? In the immortal words of Doctor Evil: "Riiiiiiiiiiiight...."

Interesting... and we're going to trust this Brown Pipe Engineer with an amount of money that has eleven zeros!!??

But Somehow, HE'S THE SCUMBAG!!??
HOW DARE HE!!!

I don't know what's more disgusting... that a Catholic Bishop was slammed for reinforcing Catholic Teaching at an alleged "Catholic organization" conference, or if the mere fact that it's even newsworthy that a Catholic Bishop reinforced Church Teaching. Have things really gotten that bad? (He asked rhetorically.)

If anyone honestly thinks for a moment that these perverts actually advocate celebacy and admitting that the homosexual act itself is intrinsically sinful... then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

If you get a chance, read the entire article. It's a stunner. But here's the gist of it from The Catholic News Agency; (Emphasis mine)
Bishop Soto’s defense of Church teaching at gay ministry conference draws attendees’ ire

Sacramento, Sep 27, 2008 / 10:54 am (CNA).- Jamie Soto, the coadjutor bishop of Sacramento, addressed the National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries conference in Long Beach, California on September 18. While noting that marriage is not the "sole domain of love," he also reiterated the Church’s teaching that homosexual acts are sinful. During his talk, several audience members walked out while Bishop Soto received hostile responses from many in the audience afterward.

The bishop’s address began by challenging the belief that Jesus "always gave people what they wanted" and was an "agreeable person." He noted the exchange between Jesus and Simon Peter in Matthew 16, where Jesus says
"You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do."

The bishop also referenced St. Paul’s phrase "do not conform yourselves to this age," noting the human capacity to think that Jesus is "too unrealistic, too unreasonable," and to convince ourselves that "we know better than the Lord."

Such habits, the bishop said, are evident today in the area of sexuality, about which many of us have a "distorted sense."

"Sexuality has been reduced to a matter of personal preference and personal pleasure without responsibility and with little respect for others. We can lose sight of the profound dignity of the human person who shares in God’s love and creative work through the chaste expression of one’s sexuality proper to one’s calling in life. "

Bishop Soto then lauded the virtue of chastity, calling it "the path that brings us to that harmony with God’s wisdom and love" and a thing that "moves us beyond one’s desire to what God wills for each one of us."

This is true, he said, also for men and women who are homosexual.

"Let me be clear here," the bishop stated. "Sexual intercourse, outside of the marriage covenant between a man and a woman, can be alluring and intoxicating but it will not lead to that liberating journey of true self-discovery and an authentic discovery of God. For that reason, it is sinful."

While same-sex relations can be "alluring" for homosexuals, it
"deviates from the true meaning of the act and distracts them from the true nature of love to which God has called us all."

Two conference attendees told the California Catholic Daily that they witnessed Bishop Soto "courageously but gently" give a clear presentation of Catholic teaching on sexuality. They report at least five members of the audience walked out during the bishop’s address, while only a very small number applauded the bishop at the conclusion of his speech.

When the conference chairman announced the bishop would answer questions at a reception held in another room, members of the audience reportedly made widespread shows of disapproval and said they wanted to respond immediately.

Bishop Soto then interacted with respondents.

About eight audience members expressed their unhappiness with what the bishop had said. One woman reportedly commented that the audience knew what the Church teaches but wanted to hear about the value of the "lived experience" of lesbian women and gay men.

While the audience members responded to the bishop’s remarks, the California Catholic Daily says, one board member of the National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries approached one of the tables in the room and said "On behalf of the board, I apologize. We had no idea Bishop Soto was going to say what he said."
By the way, here's the by-diocese, by-parish (remember, that's spelled "by", not "bi-", but that works, too) link for The National Association of Lispers With Blisters, or whatever the hell they're called.

Why don't these diocese and parishes abandon these freaks, and instead, exclusively incorporate The Courage Apostolate instead?

For me, it's obvious. There are those within The Church who are stealth (and sometimes, none-too-stealthily) supporters in favor of portraying The Sin of Sodom as "normal". And more often than not, these are the same Smoke of Satan tokers who look the other way and smile whenever "Catholics" publicly support abortion.

Either Get REAL Smart, Or Learn To Love The Hell Outta Some Kung Pao Chicken
Are we living in "The Chinese Century"?

I didn't watch too much of the past Olympics, but I do remember how the reporters couldn't keep themselves from continually pointing out that China is a nation of 1.3 billion people. Keep in mind that America is a nation of 300 million (does that include the 20 million illegals?).

Anyhow, the Chinese outnumber us almost 4 1/2-to-1. That's a frickin' ass-load of Chinamen.

And let's keep in mind that China just completed their first spacewalk; are well on their way to their own space station; and are planning a moon landing in the not too distant future.

With all that in mind, let's not forget that China is also building a Blue Water Fleet, they've stolen our Aegis Battle Systems, and when it comes to their army... as they say Up North, fuhgeddaboudit! China not only has over 7 million in uniform, they also have more than 700 million available for military service. That's double the entire population of the United States of America. And in a totalitarian dictatorship, it's not all that hard to mobilize.

So with allllll that said, it's not too tough to figure out that China doesn't exactly fear America in a land mass war on the Asian continent.

But what do the Chinese fear? What is the only ace up our sleeve? American nukes.

But that won't last for long if we continue to graduate students who can't even read the diploma that was just handed to them... and as we continue to transfer our industrial base to China.

Think about that the next time you purchase something, and it has "Made In China" stamped or sewn on it.
The Caveman's Take On The Debate...
Obama kicked McCain's ass all over the stage

I watched the debate tonight with one question in mind: how and what will the average American rate and remember from this debate? From what I saw, below is what most will retain. Keep in mind, most citizens of this country have the attention span of a gnat, and are more interested in image over substance.

1. Obama gave specific accusations against McCain. McCain gave a stump speech.

2. Obama spoke with conviction and fervor. McCain spoke flatly, uninspired... and at times, seemed like a befuddled old man.

3. Obama looked McCain in the eye. McCain looked the other way, and quite honestly, sometimes looked scared.

4. When Obama was ramming his accusations home against McCain, McCain tried to defend himself, but allowed Obama to repeatedly to speak over him.

5. McCain had chance after chance to shove it down Obama's throat, but didn't. Example: when Obama was lecturing McCain about war, McCain should have interrupted him with a Reaganesque line like; "Don't lecture me about war. I know more of the horrors of war than you'll ever know". Instead, McCain just stared at the audience with the deer-in-the-headlights look on his face.

6. Twice McCain said "I wasn't voted Miss Congeniality in the US Senate". OK... we get it.

7. The moderator put more pressure on Obama than did McCain. Never a good sign.

8. Only towards the end did McCain seem to even have a clue. But by then, it was too late.

Bottom line -- overall, Obama seemed prepped, ready and sure of himself. McCain didn't. Don't be surprised if Obama rises 10 points in the polls.

UPDATE!!

From the Kansas City Star; Poll results for first presidential debate (with update of independent voter poll): Obama wins
By George Harris, Kansas City Star Readers Advisory Panel 2008

Who won the debate?

Ignore all commentators' opinions expressed without evidence. The winner is determined by the numbers, especially the votes of the undecided. Here are some preliminary answers:

CBS Insta Poll shows Barack Obama won 39% to John McCain's 25% with 36% saying the debate was a draw.

Insider Advantage reports of those polled Obama won 42% to McCain's 41% with Undecided 17%

CNN reports voter opinions that Obama "did better" 51%, McCain "did better" 38%

The CNN poll showed men were evenly split, but women gave
Obama higher marks 59% to 41% for McCain.

The CNN pollster noted a slight Democratic bias in the survey. Well, there just are more Democrats in the country. So more Democrats watched. However, this may also suggest Democratic enthusiasm which will help turn out the vote.

The MSNBC on-line (non-scientific) poll showed Obama winning the debate 52% to 33%. (But this is what one would expect from such a poll at MSNBC because of the nature of its viewers.)

MediaCurves.com reported Independents favored Obama overall 61% to 38%. (I do not know this organization or know how it conducts polls, so take results with a couple of grains of salt.)
This from The Drudge Report; (non-scientific) {{{{DRUDGE POLL}}}} WHO WON THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE?...

MCCAIN
68% 209,576

OBAMA
30% 92,298

NEITHER
2% 7,378

Total Votes: 309,252
And this from Politico.com; Declared Obama the winner: ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, pollster Frank Luntz on Fox, Slate’s John Dickerson, Time magazine’s Mark Halperin, CBS News instant poll and CNN post-debate poll.

Declared McCain the winner: Politico’s Roger Simon (“The Mac is back”), Fortune magazine’s Nina Easton, The Weekly Standard’s William Kristol and Fred Barnes, Fox News Texting Poll and Drudge online poll.

Tie: Republican strategist Mike Murphy, who said on MSNBC: “No game-changer, and we're going to have a rematch.”

You Can't Make This Stuff Up
BTW, what the hell kinda stupid first name is "Alcee"?

From The Wall Street Journal; Moose Jews Can Use
Latest attack on Palin: She doesn't keep kosher!

CNN reports on the Obama campaign's latest effort to hold the Jewish vote:

Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because "anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks."

"If Sarah Palin isn't enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention," Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday.
What Happens When Our Bishops Become Toothless Dogs
Cardinal Spellman would have personally kicked this guy's ass

Yep, a toothless dog makes you feel safe. It can bark... growl... look menacing. But when it comes to protecting hearth and home, that toothless dog pretty much accomplishes diddly-squat. Sounds a lot like the USCCB, huh?

Yeah, yeah... we've all seen the Judas' within our own Church. Pelosi, Giuliani, Biden, Schwarzenegger, etc. And for decades we've been subjected to a bunch of do-nothings (AKA: the USCCB) either smile and look the other way when "Catholics" publicly supported the mass murder of children, or most of them (two thirds) did everything humanly possible to protect the very same homosexual rapists who infected the American clergy.

And for the one-third of the Bishops who didn't protect the Lavender Mafia, guess what they did? You guessed it. Instead of having a backbone and standing up to them, they smiled and looked the other way.

And now we've got this little piss-ant. And where is the Catholic clergy? Smiling and looking the other way. GOP activists claim Franken is anti-Catholic

By Matthew Stolle
Post-Bulletin, Rochester MN

Three area Republican activists urged voters to reject DFL nominee Al Franken for U.S. Senate because of what they called his insensitive and mocking statements about the Catholic religion.

They said his jokes about communion, Mary Magdalene and his dismissive attitude toward the Catholic Church went too far. Franken once referred to its stance on stem cell research as "idiotic" on his radio show.

"There are lots of humorists who use their positions to unite people or to improve things. His attitude isn't one of just disagreeing. It's one of belittling and demeaning," Dr. Phil Araoz said.

Araoz was one of three Catholics at a Rochester media event organized Wednesday by the campaign of GOP Sen. Norm Coleman. The others were Fran Bradley, a former state representative, and Pauline Varley, a GOP activist.

Coleman, a first-term senator, is seeking a second term in the Senate, and polls so far show the two candidates in a statistical dead heat.

The summary highlighted pieces of fictional writing in which an ex-president Franken finds the complete skeleton of Jesus Christ and sells pieces of it at his presidential library. It highlights imaginary conversations Franken has with a foul-mouthed God. It also quotes Franken as referring to religion as a "crutch" in times of adversity.
Hmmm... didn't someone else say something about "bitter people clinging to religion..."? And didn't someone else say something about religion being "the opiate of the masses"?

The hammer doesn't fall far from the sickle. But don't hold your breath waiting for the American bishops to warn any of us about that.

Moslem Found Guilty In Plot To Behead Canuck PM
Oh, and did CNN even both to mention he is a moslem? Whaddya think?

Not only, no... but hell no. Just a passing reference from CNN that the entire nogginendectomy plot as nothing more than a "jihadi fantasy".

Keep in mind that I posted about this very same case over two years ago. At least the Canadians had the good manners to find this scumbag guilty.

But remember... this isn't a religious war, and the bad guys aren't moslems. To say such would be oh-so politically incorrect. And we can't have that, now can we?
I WANT THIS SHIRT!!
Really, I do

How Brilliant Would This Be?
As far as politics goes...

As we all know by now, McCain has suspended his campaign to focus on this finacial FUBAR taking place on Wall Street. And again... as we all know, the Friday night debate just might not take place.

Here's The Caveman Plan - the McCain people shouldn't give a definitive answer at all if he'll bow out. Keep Obama guessing until the last second.

And when that last second ticks by, have Sarah Palin show up and make the following announcement: Senator McCain is devoting his time and energy to solve this country's current financial crisis. So under the circumstances, I'll face Senator Obama in tonight's debate.That statement alone, coupled with the look on Obama's face, will earn the Republican ticket at least an extra 15 points in the polls.

Would you expect any less from the same gnarley dude who declared that kneeling during The Consecration was a Mortal Sin? Duuuuuuude.... forget about the Confessional, I'm tryin' to get into The Green Room.

Here's some of the bogus article from the California Catholic Daily, man; (Emphasis totally mine, dude.)
“Surfing priests”
Beaches “cultural and spiritual center of our community,” says Bishop Tod Brown

Bishop Tod Brown of the Diocese of Orange will play host to the first ever “Blessing of the Waves” at the Huntington Beach Pier on Sunday morning, Oct. 5, along with what the diocese is calling representatives of “other faith traditions.”

"In Orange County our beaches are more than simple geography, they are the cultural and spiritual center of our community,” (So much for all that 'Parish Church' stuff, huh?) said Bishop Brown in a prepared statement. “It is important that we recognize this common element in all our lives, regardless of faith tradition (read: heretics and pagans). Pope Benedict XVI and other spiritual leaders have called on all people to commit to the protection of these gifts of nature and preserve them for future generations."

The diocesan release noted that “many people, including Catholics, spend much of their time surfing and enjoying the natural beauty of our coast line and recognize the spiritual importance of this natural asset. Surfing has long been associated with Saint Christopher
(SINCE WHEN!!??), who, although he no longer is listed on the universal calendar of saints, still has his devotees.”

For more than a year, the Orange diocese has been organizing “this new interreligious community activity lead by Catholic clergy, Diocesan youth groups, and participants of various faith traditions to call attention to the innumerable importance of our oceans and beaches, and to take a deeper look at their spiritual significance,” said the news release. “This first annual interfaith event will feature an opening prayer service, ceremonial paddle-out ("the ceremonial paddle-out" not to be confused with the ceremonial coming-out that so previlant in the Califirnia clergy), blessing of waves and attendees, acknowledgment of marine safety representatives, and will close with surfing priests and other religious leaders.”

"It is fitting that this blessing is set one day after the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron Saint of ecology,” said Fr. Christian Mondor, OFM, vicar emeritus of Sts. Simon and Jude parish in Huntington Beach. “Our coast line and its diverse ecosystem are under constant strain and increased environmental pressures. This event seeks to remind our community that protecting the environment is central to Catholicism (is this the point where we all worship Mother Earth?) and many other faith traditions. I am excited to join with members of our diverse faith community here in Huntington Beach to bless waves, those who ride on them, and the lifeguards who protect ocean goers."

Oops: Biden garbles Depression history

Joe Biden's denunciation of his own campaign's ad to Katie Couric got so much attention last night that another odd note in the interview slipped by.

He was speaking about the role of the White House in a financial crisis.


"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed," Biden told Couric. "He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
As Reason's Jesse Walker footnotes it: "And if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, 'Who is that guy? What happened to President Hoover?'"

Christine Thinks We're Cool!
And sometimes, that's all that matters

That uber-cool Bloglodytte, Christine over at A Catholic View, has bestowed upon The Cavemen the equally uber-cool "I Love Your Blog" award! Thanks, Christine... we love your blog, too!

And I hereby tag everyone on my blogroll with this award.
What Happens When Philosophy Replaces Theology
Oops... silly me. Sharia law is soon to take over in the UK

And people actually listen to what this bat-shit crazy old broad has to say? Sounds as if she's a bit more of this. But on the other hand, possibly this little ditty works better as this gal blitzkrieg's her way through the UK.

Anyhow, if there's going to be a Catholic Re-Awakening in the British Isles, the intrepid and oh, so courageous bishops better quit sitting on their hands and start acting like Catholic Bishops. But don't count on that happening any time soon. Waaaaaay too much "Spirit of Vatican II" huggy-touchies that have the priority over actual evangelization.

That is before the Neo-Druids unwittingly finish paving the way for the moslems. Mark my words... once any semblance of Christianity has been wiped away, that's when the moslems will fill the void and turn a particular Sceptered Isle into The Sultanate of Englandobad.

But here's some of a rather interesting article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine) Baroness Warnock: Elderly with Dementia have a "Duty to Die"
Called "a regression to the brutal ancient world, when enforced suicide as a punishment was commonplace"

LONDON, September 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In an interview, Baroness Mary Helen Warnock has said that people suffering dementia have a duty to commit suicide.

Baroness Warnock, called the "philosopher queen", is regarded as Britain's leading moral philosopher. She said that she hopes people will soon be "licensed to put others down" who have become a burden on the health care system.

She told the Church of Scotland's Life and Work magazine, "If you're demented, you're wasting people's lives - your family's lives - and you're wasting the resources of the National Health Service."

In another article for a Norwegian periodical, titled "A Duty to Die?" she suggests, "There's nothing wrong with feeling you ought to do so [commit suicide] for the sake of others as well as yourself."

"In other contexts, sacrificing oneself for one's family would be considered good. I don't see what is so horrible about the motive of not wanting to be an increasing nuisance."

John Smeaton, director of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, wrote that Warnock's comments are "a regression to the brutal ancient world, when enforced suicide as a punishment was commonplace."

Warnock's ideas, however, can also be traced to a period of history much closer to our own. In his book "The Origins of Nazi Genocide: from Euthanasia to the Final Solution", US holocaust historian Henry Friedlander chronicled the growth and application of utilitarian and eugenic philosophies identical to Lady Warnock's.

Under the influence of utilitarian eugenic philosophies, also called "social Darwinism", German officials in the 1930s instituted a program of mass euthanasia for persons the state considered undesirable, labeling them "lebensunwertes leben": life unworthy of life and "useless eaters." Among the groups targeted for euthanasia were developmentally disabled people, disabled children, and elderly people suffering from dementia.

In Nazi Germany's Aktion T4 programme, in which the gas chamber technology was developed, patients "judged incurably sick, by critical medical examination," were killed by physicians on the grounds that they were a burden to their families and to the state. After the war, the Nuremberg Trials found evidence that about
275,000 people had been euthanised.

An important part of the Nazi euthanasia program was a campaign of propaganda to convince the public that euthanasia was a
"compassionate" solution for patients and their families and that it would control the costs of health care.

As one of the world's most prominent proponents of the "new" utilitarianism, in 2005, Baroness Warnock said that Britain should follow the Dutch euthanasia model in setting an age limit below which premature babies would not routinely be resuscitated. She said that only those infants who show a strong chance of living to be healthy should be allowed to survive.

Her interview this week was not the first time she has suggested that there is an obligation for suicide among seriously ill people. In 2004, she told the Times that parents who want to continue medical treatment for their seriously ill children should have to pay for it themselves. "I don't see what is so horrible about the motive of not wanting to be an increasing nuisance," she said.
"I am not ashamed to say some lives are more worth living than others."

"Maybe it has to come down to saying: 'Okay, they can stay alive but the family will have to pay for it.' Otherwise it will be an awful drain on public resources," she said.
Liberal Media??
Nahhhh...

Amazing that the mainstream media never really reported this. Here's some of the article from The Villages Daily Sun;

Republican Vice Presidential Candidate draws 60,000 fans to market square for ‘road to victory rally’

THE VILLAGES — Sarah Palin greeted The Villages on a sunny Sunday afternoon, rallying Central Florida’s Republican base and continuing to capitalize on the momentum born out of the decision to make her the GOP’s vice presidential candidate.

Donning her trademark glasses, the 44-year-old Palin addressed roughly 60,000 people, according to public safety officials. It was an energized crowd
at Lake Sumter Landing Market Square for the proclaimed “Road to Victory Rally.”
And speaking of things under-reported, how about this example --

From the The Chicago Sun-Times; Uncharacteristically low turnout for Barack Obama rally in Green Bay, Wisc.
McCain/Palin drew 4,000 more supporters at same venue a week ago
September 22, 2008

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Hoping to shore up support in his suddenly undependable backyard, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama flew here Monday to talk about how he’d handle economic crises as president.

“You all know that you hold this election in your hands,” Sen. Russ Feingold, a Democrat who said he worked on ethics legislation with Obama, told a crowd of about 6,000 cheering Obama fans in the arena next to Lambeau Field.

Just a week ago, John McCain and his vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin — who can bring out crowds the way Obama can — appeared in this same stadium, Resch Center, to a crowd of 10,000 fans. There were an uncharacteristic amount of empty orange seats for Obama’s rally.

Every Time I Feel That I Should Support McCain...
He reminds me why I shouldn't

Here's some of the article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine) McCain, Obama Defend Embryonic Stem Cell Research
McCain's support more qualified, expressed concern about violation of "ethical principles"

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a Monday interview with Science Debate 2008, presidential nominees John McCain and Barack Obama reiterated their individual positions on the embryonic stem cell (ESC) research debate, with both candidates again stating that they support ESC research.

"While I support federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, I believe clear lines should be drawn that reflect a refusal to sacrifice moral values and ethical principles for the sake of scientific progress," said McCain.

"Moreover, I believe that recent scientific breakthroughs raise the hope that one day this debate will be rendered academic," he continued, citing other stem cell research that does not require the destruction of embryos.
Senator McCain, it's real simple... in light of the "recent scientific breakthroughs" that you spoke of, just have the courage to come out and renounce ESCR. Yes, it really is that simple.

And for those who've forgotten what the Five Non-Negotiables are --

1. Abortion

2. Euthanasia

3. Embryonic Stem Cell Research

4. Human Cloning

5. Homosexual “Marriage”

Draw what conclusions you may from my opinion, but I'll stand by what I've said in the past - much like the 10 Commandments, violating just one sends you to hell.

THE USE OF ALTAR GIRLS

The use of altar “girls” in the new (modern) Mass is an extremely sensitive issue. It was an issue in many parishes prior to 1994, due to the fact that bishops, for decades, had been thumbing their noses at Rome and doing as they pleased (How do you think “Communion in the hand” started in the late 1960s?). In 1994, after telling the world that he would never allow altar girls, Pope John Paul II, once again, caved in to his bishops and allowed them.

I am as convinced today, as I was so many years ago, that the use of girls at the altar has had a terrible effect on vocations to the priesthood, to the same degree that the use of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) has had on vocations, and in belief in the Real Presence.

From a purely psychological point of view, little boys normally want nothing to do with things that involve little girls. That’s just human nature. What boys do want is to be involved in something special, seen as uniquely “manly” and just with the guys. To try and twist it another way, in our modern feminized Catholic Church, is to reduce boys to simply one of the kids who “bring a bowl of water to the Presider at the Eucharistic service.”

We, as a nation, have decided to feminize our boys. We don’t want them to join Scouting, teach them to hunt, allow them to play sports on “male only” teams. We have stopped teaching them chivalry, instead making them believe that boys and girls are the same on every level. We have forgotten why God made men and women so different. We have forgotten to teach our boys how to respect and love women, protecting them with their very lives if need be. We have forgotten who we are.

The Old Mass never had a problem with vocations, as thousands of young men heard a call to the priesthood while serving at the altar. They had to work 100% harder then the boys & girls today, as they had to learn and understand the complex rubrics of the low and high Mass, all responses in Latin, and a host of other things. Today, a kid who serves the new Mass, needs about half an hour to get it right, and even then, if he or she screws it up, who knows, who cares? Sneakers, high-heels, flip-flops or shorts, it’s all about how we “feel,” isn’t it?

I predict that when a parish moves away from altar girls, has only boys AND their dads serve at the altar, tells EMHCs to quietly sit down, and a few other traditional things thrown in, such as using real Catholic hymns, beautiful vestments, priests ( not “Presiders”) facing the tabernacle, using ONLY the Roman Canon (Eucharistic prayer #1), then our present disaster in vocations will start to turn around. Imagine if our current 5,000 in our seminaries returned to our numbers of 1965, and hit around 48,000? Now that would be something to celebrate!
The Americanization Of Sarah
What makes Palin think she could ever be the President of The United States?

And oh, have the Defeatocrats sneered down their collective noses at this rubette for having the gall to even entertain such a notion. Never mind the fact that at the end of her first day as the Governor of Alaska, she already had 100% more experience in elected executive experience than Obama, Biden and McCain combined.

But if you listened to the MSM, she's just some country bumpkin who needs to keep herself barefoot and pregnant in the Executive Mansion in Juneau, and continue to keep herself busy by playing Governor of an insignificant icebox of a state.

But anyhow, how could she be so bold to even imagine that she could be President? I'll tell ya why... she's an American. That's why.

Sarah Palin just happens to be a perfect example of what "The American Experiment" is suppose to be all about. In case anyone forgot, The American Experiment is the opinion that you don't have to be of the manor born in order to rise to a position of power and responsibility. Ring a bell?

Just about every single one of us are descendants of peasant stock. Regardless if our ancestors harvested rice in Japan, hunted for game in Equatorial Africa, or milled wheat in Central Europe... they all worked for you-know-who: royalty.

For the most part, if you were born a peasant, you died a peasant. Period. Until The American Experiment, that is. And it worked pretty good for a backwoods lawyer from Illinois, a haberdasher from Missouri, or a housewife from Alaska... wouldn't you say?

But even here in America, we've started to get away from what The Founding Fathers envisioned. Not only do we have our own dynasties (read: the Kennedy and Bush families), just look at the way the press treats Palin. She didn't graduate from Harvard - she just graduated from the University of Idaho. She isn't the product of 2 generations of Navy Admirals - she's just the child of a retired school teacher. She's not a 36-year Washington insider - she's just a former PTA Mom.

But that's exactly why Sarah Palin has struck a chord with so many of us. Because that's exactly what she is --- one of us.

A BRIEF PRIMER

Over the past several months I have had an on-going conversation with a very good friend. He is a devout Roman Catholic, who continues to build on his faith every single day. However, he was born after the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) closed. He has only known the “new” ways, the new Mass (now called the “Ordinary form of the Roman Rite”), has never attended a Traditional Latin Mass, nor has he been exposed to most of the pre-Vatican II things that were the cornerstones of the Faith for millions over almost two millennium. Not his fault at all.

Recently in our discussions, often over lunch, we discuss the current state of the Church, the recent scandals, the massive reduction in vocations, the Protestantized belief of so many, and the apparent watering down of so much that made us distinctly Catholic. We inevitably get around to discussing Tradition. This discussion often deals with pre-Vatican II Catholicism as opposed to what grew rapidly following the end of the Council, its pros and cons, the differences between the Old and New Mass, etc. All of these discussions have been fascinating, especially when my friend has spent hours delving into the issues at hand. Like Paul shedding the scales on his eyes, my friend has often stated to me that he can’t believe how much we, as Roman Catholics, have lost these past 40 plus years. So much that was thought to be good following Vatican II, a renewal, a new Pentecost, has often lead to empty churches, empty seminaries, a feminization of much of the current Church, and a loss of men from just about every aspect of church life.

Some of the best books I’ve loaned him have been by the late Michael Davies, a Welshman, who wrote extensively about the post Vatican II debacle. When he died a few years ago, then Cardinal Ratzinger wrote of the great loss to the Church, and to him personally, when Davies past away.

I am often asked by fellow Roman Catholics to explain why I love Tradition, why I love the old ways, the Old Mass, the “pre-Vatican II” Church. I have several ways of explaining, but rarely have I found a finer piece then this look at Traditional Catholicism. Called “Traditional Catholicism 101: A Brief Primer,” it is found on a wonderful web site that I read often called “Fish Eaters” (http://www.fisheaters.com/).

It is not too long a read, but it can get a bit detailed when discussing what I, and just about every other traditionalist believes, is the number one problem in the Church today: Modernism, and all that springs from it. Take some time, grab a cup of coffee, and read it. You won’t regret it.

Lastly, when one digs deep into what has happened to us over these past several decades, ask yourself if we are really better off. If you think so, then ask yourself why? For example: If almost 80% of American Catholics attended Sunday Mass before 1965, and only approximately 25% do today, is that a good thing? If, in 1965 (still using the Old Mass) we had approximately 48,000 men in American seminaries and now have about 5,000, is that a good thing?

Just a few things to think about.


Traditional Catholics' Motto
We are what you once were.
We believe what you once believed.
We worship as you once worshipped.
If you were right then, we are right now.
If we are wrong now, you were wrong then.
I'll Bet He Makes Change In The Collection Plate
Brother can you spare seven dollars and nine and a half cents?

As we all know by now, Joey Hairplugs has deemed it to be "patriotic" for those that make over $250,000 a year to pay even more in taxes.

Gee, wouldn't a flat-tax be the most "patriotic" option? Sheesh... ALL of us doing our fair share, but that's a different post for a different day.

But according to the NY Daily News, over the last ten years, The Plugged One and his wife (filing jointly) made 2.2 million clams, but only gave $3,690 to charity.

Wow, I'm underwhelmed.

I'll give Joey Hairplugs the benefit of the doubt and assume he goes to Mass every Sunday. That averages to 7.095 dollars a week.

Forget about patriotism. Isn't it just a matter of decency that someone who has more money than any of us can even imagine, give more to God's Church than the spare change found in the couch cushions?

Mr And Mrs Caveman Become Hard-Core Novus Ordites
You'd have to be...

Caveman: Does that mean he'll finally stop humping all the stuffed animals?

Mrs Caveman: He can't help it!

Caveman: Something's gotta give. If he doesn't stop that soon, he'll have to go to Confession.

Mrs Caveman: Confession? You haven't even had him Baptized yet!

Gott in Himmel! No vunn isch goink to cutten off'n mein DorkenOrbsenSchlonglesteins!
Sorry, Senator McCain...
You're wrong

I'm sick of hearing this crap about how our economy is fundamentally strong. How many made in China anvils does he need to fall on his head to get it?

American factories have great big locks and chains keeping the entrance gate closed forever. Well... until good ol' Mother Nature does her thing, and the building itself falls apart. Face it folks, America has gone from a nation of steel workers to a nation of Wal-Mart greeters. And we did that to ourselves.

Should I even bring up the nationalization (ie: taxpayer bail-out) of huge chunks of the financial sector? Don't even get me started on pressing "1" for English.

Also, Senator McCain, you need to knock off this bullshit about how "the fundamentals" of the American economy is the actual American Worker. Yeah, yeah... we all know that the American Worker will bust their collective humps when given a job to do. Americans are essentially hard working, honest, and decent people. We've been that way for generations.

But even the best trained and motivated Marine can't take the proverbial hill if he's unarmed, blind in one eye, and has his hands tied behind his back. And that's what's happened to the American Worker.

Here's what you need, Senator... a rather large Mea Culpa on your part. Admit you were part of the problem (NAFTA, GATT, blanket amnesty, etc.) and then give us some concrete solutions that will, for example, turn Detroit from a freakin' ghost town to the economic and manufacturing powerhouse that not all that long ago, was the envy of the world.

After all, you're supposedly all about "Straight Talk", right?

French Bishops Challenge Pope’s Authority
Did they look down their Gallic noses at His Holiness?

Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris and president of France’s Conference of Bishops, stressed that the relationship between the Pope and the bishops “is not a servile relationship of subordination.”

“The relationship of the Pope with the bishops is not a boss/employee relationship. He is not the CEO of a multinational corporation who is coming to visit a branch office,” said the Cardinal during a press briefing after the meeting between the Pope and the French bishops.

“We have welcomed him and listened to him as a brother who has come to reinforce the faith of those with whom he works and with whom he is in communion....We are in a relationship of communion, of affection, and of collaboration. And when we have things to say to him, we say them,” said Cardinal Vingt-Trois.

What?!?!? Is there something about "Vicar of Christ" and "upon this rock I will build My Church" that the Frenchies missed? Every Pope refers to himself as "the servant of the servants of God" out of humility. He is also Shepherd Numero Uno! He is the one who will be called to give an accounting of his stewardship come Judgment Day.

Can you imagine the gall (pun intended) of those guys? If Jesus Himself showed up they'd probably thank him for coming out from headquarters to check out their smooth-running (in their minds only) branch office!
Daddy, Tell Me The Story About How America Use To Be An Economic Superpower
Once upon a time...

Yes, lil' Cavey. America use to be an economic superpower until;

1. The RepubliCrats did their level best to dismantle our manufacturing base, and then they sent as many good jobs overseas as they possibly could.

2. The RepubliCrats sat on their hands while 20 million illegal immigrants flooded the workplace.

3. The RepubliCrats forced the American Worker to bail out stupid people who can't do simple math or figure out the meaning of "balloon payment".

And no one lived happily ever after.

Alleged "Catholics 4 Obama"
Springtime of The Church alert

"I've been spoon-fed Marxist-inspired 'Liberation Theology' my entire life by my Religious Education facilitators. I've never heard a sermon condemning abortion. The vast majority of priests I've ever known were so effemminate in speech, mannerisms, and attitude, coupled with their constant preaching from the pulpit about how GLTBQ are "always our children", it isn't hard to figure out where Father Limpwrist stands on the subject. I went to Confession once when I was a child, but 'partake of the Eucharistic community meal' every single Sunday.

And that's why I'm a member of '10,000 Catholics 4 Obama." ~ CINO's thoughout this country

Heretical is as heretical does. By the way... thanks for nothing, USCCB.

Sometimes A ComBox Posting Takes On A Life Of It's Own
This is one of those times...

I recall hearing on one of the many business shows I watch, that because of illegal immigrants, real wages for American workers have gone down 5% overall.

And as I just posted on concerning the USCCB decrying *GASP* illegals actually being arrested, we have this rather thought provoking comment from Jack over at A Few Random Thoughts. Every Union member and "Catholic Democrat" needs to read this;
JACK said...

An interesting position.

It used to be the Church actively supported unionization of workers as part of the effort for social justice. As illegal immigration is pretty well documented as having adverse impact on unions, it's interesting that the Church has taken this position. Also, as illegal immigration breeds major violations of worker beneficial laws and regulations (including but not limited to child labor), the Church consistently fails to condemn those practices.

The cynic in me thinks that, with the native population disapproving of bishop performance during the recent scandals, the bishops are looking at boosting their power base another way. They look at the illegal migrants (most of whom are at least nominally Catholic) as a potential for regaining their status.

I wonder is they would be as supportive to the detriment of the American worker if the migrants were Druids.
Obama Votes With Bush Almost Half The Time
Why won't the MSM report this?

There's some interesting information from CQPolitics.com that I've just found out.

As we all know, a lot of political hay has been made over McCain voting with Bush 90% of the time, but did you know that The South-Side Stooge voted WITH Bush 40%? Does this mean that The Obamination admits that Bush is correct and doing the right thing almost half the time? Seems so.

Also, The Anointed One voted with his party 96% of the time, vice McCain voting with his 81% of the time. Does this mean that McCain is almost 450% more apt to go against his own party than Obama is?

Hmmm... and the 'change' tag applies to who, again?

Some of the article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine) U.K. Mother Murders Daughter Because "Embarrassed" by Disability

By Tim Waggoner

CHESTER, Wales, September 12, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - This week, a UK court heard the case of a mother who allegedly deliberately drowned her disabled child in a bath because she was ashamed and embarrassed by her daughter's cerebral palsy.

According to the Telegraph, prosecutor Michael Chambers explained to the court how Joanne Hill's husband had refused to give four-year old Naomi up for adoption, despite Joanne's inability to accept the fact that her daughter had cerebral palsy. He recounted the evening of the murder, November 26, 2007: "When the bath was full she told Naomi she was having a bath, but Naomi didn't want one. The defendant carried her upstairs and undressed her."

"The defendant put her in the bath and drowned her by holding her head under the water for a long time until she was dead."

According to testimony Joanne then put her daughter's clothes back on and after driving around for eight hours while intoxicated, entered the hospital claiming her daughter was unconscious. She was arrested at the hospital an hour later on suspicion of murder.

"The defendant couldn't cope with caring for Naomi and left a lot of the everyday care to her husband Simon," said Chambers.

A representative of the organization that babysat for Naomi reiterated this point, saying that Joanne was ashamed of Naomi and used to dress her in ways that would hide her disability.

Chambers also told the court that Joanne's claims of mental problems as a reduced responsibility defense have not been "entirely honest", describing how she had admitted to lying to doctors about voices in her head.

"She quite simply wanted Naomi dead," said Chambers.

This trial, which is still in progress, comes during a week in which the devaluation of children with disabilities has been very much in the media spotlight, thanks largely to Gov. Sarah Palin's much publicized decision to carry to term her son Trig, who has Down's syndrome.

Prominent bioethicist Wesley Smith recently commented on the media bias against Palin, and says it occurs in part because, "Palin is viewed as 'the other,' symbolized by her and Todd's (Palin's husband) loving acceptance of Trig." Smith said he hopes that the unconditional love the Palin's show to their son Trig will be an example for a world that is evermore justifying murder of the innocent.

"I hope that people will decide to emulate the Palins in their unconditional acceptance and love for their beautiful son, Trig," said Smith.

However, according to a Globe and Mail report from several days ago, Palin's loving and highly-publicized acceptance of her Down's syndrome child has at least one doctor in Canada worried that her example may pressure some mothers to shun abortion after diagnosis of Down's syndrome. "The worry," said Dr. Andre Lalonde, executive vice-president of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada, "is that this [Palin's example] will have an implication for abortion issues in Canada."

Already in Canada and throughout the West, abortion rates for unborn children diagnosed with Down's syndrome range from between 80% to 95%. In addition, prenatal screening for "abnormalities" other than Down's syndrome is becoming an increasingly popular phenomenon, with the result being that those unborn children deemed to be "undesirable" for various reasons are increasingly aborted.
As far as the baby-killers such as the NARAL-Nazis and Liberals overall are concerned, it's expected that they smile on the inside that another "human weed" has been done away with... but can anyone point to one single "Catholic" pro-abortion politician who has actually been excommunicated?

For the USCCB, it's lip-service as usual.
What Do YOU Think?
A reversal, or just more double-talk?

Helmet tip to the Forgotten Bloglodyte


A faithful Bloglodyte brought this up the other day. I'll been mulling it over ever since. Here's exactly what's posted on JohnMcCain.com; The last paragraph concerns me. Whaddya you think, folks? Addressing the Moral Concerns of Advanced Technology

Stem cell research offers tremendous hope for those suffering from a variety of deadly diseases - hope for both cures and life-extending treatments. However, the compassion to relieve suffering and to cure deadly disease cannot erode moral and ethical principles.

For this reason, John McCain opposes the intentional creation of human embryos for research purposes. To that end, Senator McCain voted to ban the practice of "fetal farming," making it a federal crime for researchers to use cells or fetal tissue from an embryo created for research purposes. Furthermore, he voted to ban attempts to use or obtain human cells gestated in animals. Finally, John McCain strongly opposes human cloning and voted to ban the practice, and any related experimentation, under federal law.

As president, John McCain will strongly support funding for promising research programs, including amniotic fluid and adult stem cell research and other types of scientific study that do not involve the use of human embryos.

Where federal funds are used for stem cell research (Does he mean EMBRYONIC stem cell research?), Senator McCain believes clear lines should be drawn that reflect a refusal to sacrifice moral values and ethical principles for the sake of scientific progress, and that any such research should be subject to strict federal guidelines.

USCW&NB
United States Council of Wink & Nod Bishops

Gutless, totally and thoroughly gutless.

Here's some of the article from The California Catholic Daily; (Emphasis mine) Day late and a dollar short?
US bishops to discuss politics and abortion – after the election

The Catholic bishops of the United States will discuss “the practical and pastoral implications of political support for abortion” when they meet in November, six days after the presidential election.
Leave It To The USCCB To Have Their Priorities Screwed Up...
Again

This comes from the same bunch who won't do a damn thing of substance against alleged "Catholics" who support unborn babies being slaughtered. I guess excommunication is out of the question.

But actually arresting those who've broken the law is now "inhumane". What's really inhumane is the wink and a nod the USCCB has given to the likes of Pelosi, Biden, Giuliani, Kerry and Schwarzenegger.

Here's some of the article from the Catholic News Agency; (Emphasis mine) Catholic bishops call for end to ‘inhumane’ worksite ICE raids

Speaking at a press conference in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, several Catholic bishops questioned the effectiveness and humaneness of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids and called for them to be abandoned.

John Wester, Bishop of Salt Lake City, said the present is “a dark period in our country on the issue of immigration.” After the failure of the immigration reform bill in Congress last year, he argued, there has been an “unprecedented emphasis on enforcement-only initiatives.” The bishop charged that these initiatives are “designed to create an atmosphere of fear in immigrant communities,” and constitute a policy of “deportation by attrition.”

He emphasized that the bishops did not question the right of the government to enforce immigration laws, but questioned whether worksite raids are effective and “most importantly, humane.”

Bishop Wester explained that he had witnessed the consequences of such raids first-hand, which he said include the disruption of communities, the separation children who are U.S. citizens from their parents, and the removal of minor children’s primary caregivers.

“We call upon President Bush and the Department of Homeland Security to reconsider the use of worksite enforcement raids,” he said, asking the government to “please abandon them” if human rights protections can’t be implemented.
Such bullshit. Someone remind our valiant bishops that the ICE agents wouldn't have to resort to worksite raids if they very same people arrested hadn't broken the law to begin with.

Their pew-based pandering is disgusting.
Funny How THIS Is Never Brought Up

As I heard some shrew of a woman on TV attempting to slam Sarah Palin, because, as said shrew hissed "she's just the governor of a state with a part-time legislature!"

I seem to recall a certain William Jefferson Blythe Clinton was also "just the governor of a state with a part-time legislature".

From the official website of the Arkansas Senate, "About the Arkansas Senate"; Service in the state legislature is part-time, and most state senators have full-time jobs during the rest of the year.Unrelated, but I also find it amazing that no one has brought this up... the next time someone says that McCain has no executive experience, I'd like to point out that not only is he a retired full bird Navy Capatain, he was also; ...the Commanding Officer of Attack Squadron 174 (VA-174) also known as the Hellrazors, an attack squadron based at Naval Air Station Cecil Field, Florida.Just so you know.

Passing The Parent Test
Putting their money where their mouth is

Here's some of the article from The Independent (UK); (Emphasis mine) With ABC "World News" cameras in tow for the first of several back-to-back interviews, Mrs Palin is flying back to Alaska to see her son off from the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Wainwright.

It's the sixth anniversary of the 11 September attacks and a year to the day since Private Track Palin enlisted in the US Army. After flying to Kuwait for training he will be deployed in a few weeks time, performing security duties guarding his commanders, in Diyala province.

He's just like any other infantry soldier here," said Army Col. Burt Thompson, in Alaska. "He tries to remain as anonymous as he possibly can."

Adding to the Pentagon's problems, both Jimmy McCain and Track Palin are both in the infantry and thus more likely to face danger. But the deployment of Joe Biden's son Beau should help the Democrats as they push back at the perception that they are less patriotic than Republicans because they oppose the war in Iraq.

"Republicans always seem to imply that Democrats are somehow unpatriotic or want to be easy on the terrorists," said James Pfiffner, a professor at George Mason University. "But I think that Biden's son demonstrates that you can disagree with a policy and still support doing your duty."

Beau Biden, who is Delaware's attorney general, is a captain in the Delaware National Guard and will work as a military lawyer in Iraq. John McCain's son Jimmy, a Marine, has already completed a tour of duty in Iraq. Another son, Jack, is soon to graduate from the US Naval Academy.
And before anyone gets sucked into the Liberal charge that Gov. Palin is "campaigning" at her son's departure ceremony... let me remind them that Track is a member of the Alaska National Guard.

As Commander-In-Chief of the ANG, it's her JOB to see them off.

Lastly, all the interservice rivaly stuff aside for the moment, may God protect ALL those, regardless of billet or Branch of Service, who enter into the fray.
Waiting For The Other Testicle To Drop
Big laugh against an honorable man

Have I mentioned what a smug little punk I think The South-Side Stooge is? In reference to the race for the Illinois Senate race against Ambassador Alan Keyes, see how The Obamination gets such a big laugh at the expense of Amb. Keyes. But then says "...but it's the right thing to do." For FIVE year-olds?



Guess Amb. Keyes was right all along, huh?

The Unraveling Of The South-Side Stooge
Objectively, reasonably... the conclusion that The Obamanation is becoming unglued
Helmet tip to Mr & Mrs NYPD

As we all know, Sarah Palin quipped at the RNC that the difference between Pit Bulls and Hockey Moms was lipstick. Then we all saw the home made signs at rallies that said "Read My Lipstick".



Only the most naive refuse to recognize the obviousness of this.

By the way, how did a guy from Hawaii cultivate an Urban-Black accent so quickly? Shameless pandering to the crowd.... or mob, as the case may be?
Alright, All You Damn Yankees!
Listen up, Y'heah?

Helmet tip to the enigmatic Bruce

Do you think that Father is directing a wise guy to rough up the parishioners by saying "Dominick, go frisk 'em"?

Does you "Brooklyn Culturally-Inclusive" Novus Ordo Mass begin with the priest saying "what the fook youz lookin' at?"
