An even more appropriate “Question and Answer of the Day”


Courtesy of one of Michelle Malkin’s readers, we now have an even more appropriate “Sign of the Day”.

(This one is photoshopped, but I say should be installed by someone soon!)

YES!

Question of the Day — and the Answer


Miss me yet?

from NPR:

There is a billboard along I-35 near Wyoming, Minn., with a huge photo of former president George W. Bush and this question: “Miss Me Yet?”….

……Mary Teske, the general manager of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising reports, “The Bush Miss Me Yet? billboard was paid for by a group of small business owners who feel like Washington is against them. They wish to remain anonymous. They thought it was a fun way of getting out their message.

Miss George W Bush yet?

Let’s see……

I could go on an on…..

Do I miss George W Bush, warts and all?  Damn right I do.

Abortion and murder


Upon the murder on Sunday of George Tiller, the late-term abortionist, we have all been treated to fanatical words and reviews of how pro-life citizens and media figures caused the murder.  See for yourself:

Tiller killing puts spotlight on Fox’s O’Reilly

Abortion-rights groups: Other side’s words led to Tiller death

Why we have even been given the privilege of another mini-speech from Obama on the topic a few hours after the incident:

“I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning,” Obama said in a statement issued by the White House this evening.

“However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion,” the president said, “they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.”

Of course Obama’s statement is entirely predictable.  Obama is THE most pro-abortion President ever.  He has stood his ground in the past that a baby born alive from a botched abortion should not be saved….he believes it undermines the doctor’s authority.  Obama is not only pro-abortion, but pro-infanticide.

Isn’t it ironic that even at his speech at Notre Dame a couple of weeks ago, Obama couldn’t muster the same outrage at the murders of millions of babies in the womb that he has shown for the murder of Dr. Tiller? (But has yet to show for a murdered military recruiter 2 days after the very public murder?)

While his murderer was in no way justified in taking justice into his own hands, Dr. Tiller was responsible, by his own admission, for 60,000 LATE TERM abortions.   In other words, those same babies, in all likelihood, could have lived outside the womb…..a trip of about 6-10 inches further and those babies would be alive today.  Instead Dr. Tiller poked scissors into their skulls and murdered them at their mothers’ requests before they could “make the trip”.

And so the abortion debate goes on….Of course, deranged liberals blame pro-lifers for Tiller’s murder as noted above.  Others on the blogs are having mostly civil discussions on the topic. I’ve written comments on a couple of blogs since Tiller’s murder.  One blogger, Patterico in particular, linked an articlethat debated whether abortion is murder, and if so, why don’t we call the mother a murderer?  The blogger also said he is not an “absolutist” on the issue of abortion and whether it is murder….here’s my response:

Abortion is an absolute issue. If your mother had chosen an abortion, you ABSOLUTELY would not be here to write “I am not an absolutist”.

Ending an ordinary life whether in the womb at 6 weeks or 6 months or a person of 80 years old is murder.

On that matter of mother as murderer I agree with Ken Hahn (another commenter) who said this:

I believe the abortionist is equivalent to a hit man and the person who hires him or her as guilty is the active killer. I will work for laws that hold exactly that. You can call me all the names you’d like or justify my beliefs as anything that makes you happy. I no longer care.

I also believe that those laws that convict mothers as murderers will not happen near term because, unlike other types of murder, abortion has been so softened-over so that much of our society does not deem it wrong…as a matter of fact, it is considered a “right” by many for a mother to terminate her very own child’s life….

It is clear that for other types of murder we don’t justify the actions of the murderer in that way…that holds true especially for those who kill a 2-year old, 5-year old or 16-year old children!
It is an uphill battle, but a noble one to change abortion laws and American minds on the matter.

While Dr. Tiller was able to perform abortions, and therefore murdered thousands, his actions are abhorrent to our morality and our society. The FACT that he did it for large amounts of money is almost inexplicable and morally repugnant as another commenter alluded to.

Someone also mentioned the “freedom of conscience” rights of a woman. Sure that exists…but the right is exercised at the point of conception….you choose to have sex, you know the consequences….you see, most of this philosophical mumbo jumbo about women and abortions is a quite successful attempt at relieving women (and men) of their moral responsibilities when it comes to sex….
In an attempt to keep from calling the woman responsible, many in our society have chosen to neglect the life that has formed, snuff it out, and defend those actions —-all so the woman can her right to sex whenever she feels like it with no responsibility.

Did Tiller deserve, in a moral sense, what he got? YES. He killed thousands…
I won’t miss a man on this earth who was responsible for the death of thousands of innocents. I do grieve for his family and for the thousands he killed….

Before you call me crazy, I also believe that what Roeder did (killing Tiller) is also murder and out of the bounds of law. He should be punished to full extent of the law for what he did. He also did no favors to those of us who understand that INNOCENT life is precious at any age and he hurt our efforts in the fight to save those lives.

The Case Against Barack Obama


From HotAir.com, Mary Katherine Ham and Guy Benson lay out the compelling case against Barack Obama.

The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama

The Manifesto of the Silenced Majority


At Doug Ross at DirectorBlue:

• We believe that Barack Obama is a brilliant orator and a man possessed of more charisma than any politician since JFK.

• But we also believe that his philosophy of “spreading the wealth around” is an ill-disguised form of socialism that undermines everything America holds dear.

• We believe that a “tax cut on 95% of working Americans” when only 63% of Americans pay taxes is nonsensical.

• We believe that the Obama campaign’s obfuscated funding for ACORN (originally described as “event planning”) undermines the integrity of our elections and calls into question the legality of his tactics.

• We believe that Barack Obama’s plan to form a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as our military is ill-considered at best.

• We believe that the Obama campaign’s efforts to intimidate WGN (on two separate occasions) when it interviewed his political foes endangers free speech.

• We believe that Obama’s choice of Joe Biden as VP runs counter to his twin aspirations of “hope” and “change”.

• We believe that a man who could not otherwise receive a security clearance should not serve as Commander-in-Chief.

• We believe that Obama’s 20-year relationship with his pastor, who he once described as his “spiritual adviser”, displays a basic affinity for a racist ideology that runs counter to everything his candidacy should stand for.

• We believe that most of Obama’s senate experience has been spent running for office; from the time he was sworn in as a U.S. senator to the time he formed a presidential exploratory committee, he logged only 143 days in the senate.

• We believe that Obama does voters a disservice by hiding his chairmanship of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (a $165 million dollar effort to improve Chicago’s schools) when he used that service as his central experience in 2000 during his first run for Congress.

• We believe that Obama made a series of very poor choices by serving on boards and sharing an office with Bill Ayers (for three years); Ayers’ organization killed three police officers, bombed numerous government facilities and nearly detonated a nail bomb at a Fort Dix Officer’s Dance.

• We believe that, no matter Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers, his evasive and ever-morphing answers about their work together smack of a coverup.

• We believe that anyone — no matter their position on abortion — who supports killing an infant that survived a botched abortion is on the wrong side of any moral code.

• We believe that Obama’s advisers and contributors — from Tony Rezko to Valerie Jarrett to Allison Davis — cost taxpayers millions in development fees for failed (and often uninhabitable) apartment complexes.

• We believe that Obama’s Illinois state senate experience was insubstantial: it was, by his own description, a “part-time position” and he maintained two offices (one at the state senate and one at his law firm).

• We believe that Obama’s state senatorial experience was further diluted by his 129 “present” votes, which, as NPR observes , “There’s a saying in Springfield that there’s a reason why the present button is yellow… [but] I don’t think that Barack Obama was necessarily a coward for voting present on those bills…”

• We also believe that Obama’s experience as a community organizer and as a trainer for ACORN are not qualifications for the presidency.

• We believe that the candidate has not been forthcoming with his background and the key influencing forces during his formative years.

We therefore believe that Barack Obama is ill-prepared and ill-suited for the Presidency.

Presidential Election Issues Voter Guide


I received this voter guide from the American Family Association (AFA)…thought it would be a good thing to pass along….

McCain is first column Obama is second column…..Stark differences between the two on the issues.  And don’t forget Obama’s Tax Plan, which will take a big step in moving America into being a Socialist nation!
