A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Thin Red Line, Getting Thinner ( "But the hard fact remains that the British government, squeezed by the costs of its social welfare state and dominated by a Treasury that has little use for the armed forces, is cutting its military in wartime, and when its armed forces are stretched as never before."
I wonder. Will they be able to get their welfare checks from the mosques? And the mosques WILL be in control if the nations of the West are unwilling to defend their freedom. - News - Woman Sent To Jail For Smoking Around Kids: "A woman was sentenced Thursday to 10 days in jail for defying a court order not to smoke around her children."
And everyone gets to do his/her own thing? A woman can have lovers in, male or female, and abort her babies. In Colorado we have places where they can drop unwanted babies off if they decide they don't want them. She can expose her children to abominable stuff on TV, give them condoms. She can send them to public school where they are taught that God is a myth, that we all came from apes, and sodomy and lesbianism is normal and natural, and maybe even preferred. She can teach them that the state owes them food, shelter, healthcare, and protection from mental distress.

But she dasn't blow smoke in their tender little faces. Boy, we won't stand for that!! When we throw out the Ten Commandments from the public square, we have not ended public instruction of the morals of a religion; we have just changed the religion.
Do you remember when we were promised that campaign reform would get the money out of politics? But things have changed. Now Michael Moore and other can make a movie and MAKE huge amount of money slandering the President. Strange.

Why do people complain about jobs being "sent" overseas [At the moment we will refrain from speaking of the taxing policies that make it cheaper for companies to do business overseas], but do not complain when a canditate claims that he will send our foreign policy overseas and leave it to the Germans and the French and the Russians whether we can defend out natiion? Double strange.

The New Republic Online: Frontal Assault: "These ads, along with next week's publication of Unfit to Command, an anti-Kerry book by the senator's longtime nemesis John O'Neil, mark the opening salvo in the right's assault on Kerry's character. In response, the Kerry campaign should do the political equivalent of steering a swift boat into enemy fire: sue SBVT for libel."
Wonderful idea. You go, boy. May if there was a lawsuit the judge would order Kerry's military record released. Then we would have hard evidence of who is lying. I think we already know, and I think the left knows, just as they knew that Clinton was a lying fornicator. They just didn't care, for who cares about lies and fornicatin'? It's power that matters. And you need power if you are going to keep the right to kill babies and have sodomite marriage. This is the real agenda.
My Way News: "'Shamefully, I engaged in adult consensual affairs with another man, which violates my bonds of matrimony,' the married father of two said. 'It was wrong, it was foolish, it was inexecusable.'"
And wicked. He says it is inexcusable, but makes excuses because he is a "gay American" and cannot help it.

Why truth matters - The Washington Times: Commentary - August 11, 2004: "Asked where he was that fateful morning, he said he was in a meeting with Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle and Sens. Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid. 'We watched the second plane come in to the building,' Mr. Kerry said. 'And we shortly thereafter sat down at the table and then we just realized nobody could think, and then boom, right behind us, we saw the cloud of explosion at the Pentagon.' "
This is the man who criticises the President for remaining calm, reading the rest of the story to the kiddies, not spreading alarm. Maybe President should have stood up, girded up the loins of his mind, and rushed off in all directions, as Mr. Kerry has been doing. / News / Boston Globe / Opinion / Op-ed / Women count more than NASCAR dads
These women don't vote in proportion to other women. They are enormously concerned about their financial freedom. Many of them refuse to take on the responsibilites of home and marriage, and refuse the traditional Christian obligation to love husbands and children. Although there are many reasons in individual cases why this is so, the over riding reason that America's women are at risk, is because of the rejection of traditional Christian roles in marriage.

They "scape by on less than $30K a year."

This author's solution is for Kerry to promise to take care of these people. Ain't it wunnerful. We ain't gonna live in marriage and submission, but Kerry will take care of all of us. Let the taxpayer be married to all of them.

It is well known in high places that easy divorce laws are a disaster for the common person, and truly benefit only rich men. Rich men who make our laws want easy divorce so they can dump their aging spouses and get something snappier and younger.

But the reality is, that there is a large number of single women who by nature need to be taken care of by husbands and responsible men in their lives [Ok, you radical femlibs, let me have it, but it is the truth.] If this was not their nature they would be conservatives and not looking to government for welfare, minimum wages, etc. They would truly be able to take care of themselves. The godly woman in such a case, without a man in her life through the providence of God, finds the support she needs in the eldership of the church, who is responsible to care for those who are widows indeed.

The ungodly woman abandons her husband and her babies and flees to the state, the true god of all the ungodly. She expects the state to take care of her and meet all her needs, or the needs of her babies if she is no so wicked as to abandon them also.

These women ARE potentially more important politically than NASCAR dads. That's the shame of it.

My wife and I went to the polls yesterday in Colorado's primary. As we left, my wife said, "I never vote for a woman for anything. They just want to take care of everybody." Ain't it the truth. A woman out of office wants someone to take care of her. A woman in office wants to take care of others. Either way, the result is dangerous for the state.

Men need to be taught that they have a responsibility to marry, establish families, and take care of them. A man who does not do this has denied the faith of Christ and is worse than an infidel. Women need to be taught that they have a duty to marry, keep the family, honor their husbands and live in godly fear, in quietness and peace. The ungodly man dumps his wife and children on the state and taxpayer; the ungodly woman refuses to honor and obey her husband, and then looks to the state for support. It is an ungodly and wicked system.
The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Contributor: Fit to Be Tied: "Can we head off the possibility of a tie? The answer is yes - but the only way to do so short of a constitutional amendment is to add an odd number of seats to the House. If the size of the House were increased by one, for instance, there would be 539 members of the college, and much less chance of a tie."
If you want to read an article by a member of the intellectual university ivory tower that shows how out-of-touch with reality these creatures are, this is the one for you. The possiblities that he raises in this articles and the "disasters" he fears stem from the idea that our elected representatives are unable to make sane decisions. This thinking has led to the usurpation of the legislative authority by the elite courts, who do not think that state legislatures can be trusted to make decisions on important things, but must be prempted by the wisdom of nine men and women who suddenly become omniscient because they put on the robe of a Supreme Court Justice.

I would like to critique this article line by line, but I don't really know where to start, it is so inane. Sam Jones, the Methodist evangelist of the 19th century, once said, "Ignorance is like a round ball. There is no place to get your fingers into it."

Tuesday, August 10, 2004 - You Decide 2004 - Heinz Kerry Foundations Tied to Enviros: "Heinz Kerry is chairman of the Howard Heinz Endowment and the Heinz Family Foundation, and is also on the board of the Vera Heinz Endowment. With assets of $1.2 billion, the foundations give out $50 million a year � much of that to environmental groups."
And these liberals say that Christians are hypocrits!! Hypocrite Teresa owns five large houses, three SUVs, a yacht, and a private jet. Just like all liberals: they want to preserve the environment from the unwashed so they can enjoy and use it themselves.
Mike S. Adams: The thought police police II: "So what are we to do in a society where everyone (except college professors) seems to �get it� when it comes to free speech? The answer is simple: we must launch a formal campaign to sensitize the willfully uneducable about the threats to free speech posed by campus speech codes.
In other words, we must begin to police the thought police with an organized campaign. And today, I am launching that organized campaign."
From my favorite college professor. Read the article. The tide is turning on hate-speech masquerading as political correctness on the college campuses.
Telegraph Opinion Nuanced? Kerry's story just doesn't add up: "As he told the Boston Herald in 1979, 'I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost being killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real.'
"Just one problem. It never happened. Every living officer up his chain of command says Kerry was never ordered to Cambodia. At least three of his five crewmen say their boat was never in Cambodia. And if you don't believe any of his fellow veterans, read the excerpt from Kerry's own journal published in Tour Of Duty, the recent hagiography by Douglas Brinkley."
What is it with these Democrats? Isn't anything real with them? Is is because their resumes are fake, they think everyone else is lying. You'd think we'd have had enough with Clintonian fantasies. Are the American people so out of touch with reality that they want to be led by imaginative liars?
The Terrorism to Come by Walter Laqueur - Policy Review, No. 126: "The experts have maintained for a long time that poverty does not cause terrorism and prosperity does not cure it. In the world's 50 poorest countries there is little or no terrorism. A study by scholars Alan Krueger and Jitka Maleckova reached the conclusion that the terrorists are not poor people and do not come from poor societies.
You can force a link between poverty and terrorism if you deny spiritual evil and try to fit everything into a materialistic universe where there are no angels, devils, God, sin or righteousness.

Socialists and liberals always try to force this connection: for instance, a recent article by Benazir Bhutto, chairperson of the Pakistan People's party and a former prime minister of Pakistan. Thus, if people steal, it is the wealthy person's fault for not giving away enough of their wealth. If Islamists hate the US, it is the fault of America for being too rich [in spite of the fact that Islamists are some of the richest Arabs in the world. [Why don't they give their money away to build industry and develop poor Muslim nations? hmmm? for the same reason Kerry and Heinz and Edwards don't give their money to the poor. They want to further expand their wealth by building political empires to take other people's money to give to the poor].

So far we have had communism, fascism, nazism, abortion, and who knows what other rottenness and corruption from the denial of the spiritual. Solomon said, "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom," so I guess the inverse is true: "the absence of the fear of the Lord is the beginning of folly."

Pslam 36 confirms this: "The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful."

The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Contributor: Arabs on the Verge of Democracy: "ashington � Early last month, John Kerry devoted 11 days to fleshing out his foreign policy priorities. Promoting democracy in the Middle East, he made clear, will not be high on his agenda. Sadly, Mr. Kerry's decision could not have come at a worse moment. For the first time in half a century, democracy is the talk of the Arab world. "
From the New York Times; a rag, but not a right wing rag.
Robert Novak: Kerry's war record: "I have read the book and found it is neither the political propaganda nor the urban legend that its detractors claim. It is a passionate but meticulously researched account of how Kerry went to war, what he did in the war and how he conducted himself after the war. The very serious charges by former comrades deserve answers but so far have produced only ad hominem counterattacks.
Why should details of what Kerry did more than 30 years ago be part of this election campaign? Only because the senator has made them integral to his strategy. Kerry as war hero received more attention at the Democratic National Convention than plans for the future. Thus, what he did in his shortened four months of combat becomes a valid campaign issue."

BEIRUT: Leaders of the Presbyterian Church in the United States
have approved a plan to stop investing in Israel as a measure to
protest the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
Israel News : Jerusalem Post Internet Edition: "While on a tour of the museum at the Auschwitz death camp in Poland on Sunday, a group of around 50 Jewish university students from Israel, the U.S. and Poland were verbally attacked by a three-member gang of French male tourists. "
And why are the Jews leaving France? hmmm?

Sunday, August 08, 2004 - International team to monitor presidential election - Aug 8, 2004: "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A team of international observers will monitor the presidential election in November, according to the U.S. State Department.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe was invited to monitor the election by the State Department. The observers will come from the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights."
I predict. Whatever happens, this will prove just grist for the liberal democratic political mills. We do not need such moniters, we are self-governed, and we should not allow Al Gore and the cry-baby democrats to continue to pretend that Bush did not win the election in 2000. Shame on Colin Powell and the rest of the internationalists. Shame, shame, shame.

We have such little self confidence or national pride that we will submit to the same treatment that two-bit dictators and fourth world savages have to. More grist for the hate America crowd. Shame shame shame shame.

I wonder what nations the team will come from: Civil rights stalwarts as China, Cuba, Iran, and North Korea? Why hand our enemies a propaganda forum? Our elections are the fairest in the world, and we ought not allow the babies of 2000 the opportunity to pretend to the world that they have a case. Shame shame shame shame shame.
