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

OpinionJournal - Peggy Noonan: "Here's both a political and a public-relations reality: The Republican Party controls the Senate, the House and the White House. The Republicans are in charge. They have the power. If they can't save this woman's life, they will face a reckoning from a sizable portion of their own base. And they will of course deserve it.

This should concentrate their minds.

So should this: America is watching. As the deadline for removal of Mrs. Schiavo's feeding tube approaches, the story has broken through as never before in the media.

There is a passionate, highly motivated and sincere group of voters and activists who care deeply about whether Terri Schiavo is allowed to live. Their reasoning, ultimately, is this: Be on the side of life. They remind me of what Winston Churchill said once when he became home secretary in charge of England's prisons. He was seated at dinner with a jabbery lady who said that if she were ever given a life sentence she'd rather die than serve it. He reared back. No, he said, always choose life! 'Death's the only thing you can't get out of!'"

Republicans, are you listening? Maybe one of the greatest moral issues of our day is the life of Terri Schiavo. Is being pro-life being willing to care as much for starving a human being as for a mouse in a school house? Where is the humane society?: I once got a letter from the humane society because a boy brought a live mouse to school to feed his pet snake. Is Terri Schiavo's life worth as much as a mouse?

Are we going to watch the slow starving of a human being, an agonizing death that we would not tolerate in a pet dog or pet cat? If people go to jail for setting a cat on fire, shouldn't the people who removed the tube this afternoon be worthy of at least a public flogging?

Have we lost our moral sense and compass?

May God have mercy on our national soul.

De 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Yahoo! News - Professor Charged With Faking Grant Info: " A former medical school professor was accused Thursday of fabricating research data on closely watched topics such as menopause, aging and hormone supplements to win millions of dollars in grant money from the federal government. "

Now let's see. Following the logic of the liberal media, our conclusion should be something like this. Just as crooked tele-evangelists like Jimmy Bakker indicate that all preachers are religious quacks who are out to get the money of widows and orphans, it is evident that Dr. Eric T. Poehlman is evidence that all who labor in modern science are fakes and are out to get the government's money.

But why should Poehlman be different from so many other illustrious scientists who faked their results, like Margaret Mead, Sigmund Freud, Masters and Johnson, Darwin and so many others who built the modern house of cards that evolution and moral corruption rests upon.

The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: Dish It Out, Ladies: "Men take professional criticism more personally when it comes from a woman. When I wrote columns about the Clinton impeachment opera bouffe, Chris Matthews said that for poor Bill, it must feel as though he had another wife hectoring him. "
Speaking of repealing God's law, poor Maureen Dowd is in the same fix as the judge in my previous blog. Can't do it, poor little Maureen. God has given authority to the man as Paul, the great Apostle of liberty, wrote in 1Cor. 11:3, "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."

You can't repeal this law any more than Judge Kramer can repeal the one about sodomites.

People should remember the crucifixion of Christ. Just when they thought they had won, the forces of evil experienced their greatest defeat of history. Satan's kingdom is at its most vulnerable when God's people are weak and helpless and under the thumb of tyranny. God loves to show Himself strong in behalf of his downtrodden saints.

But Maureen Dowd will keep spitting into the wind. She is a slow learner.
My Way News: "In the eagerly awaited opinion likely to be appealed to the state's highest court, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer said that withholding marriage licenses from gays and lesbians is unconstitutional."
Interesting, huh. Somebody needs to tell Judge Kramer that what his is trying to do has been tried before, with predictable results.

I mean repealing the Law of God. The Law of God is not an abstraction, but is binding upon every man everywhere, whether he agrees with it or not, for the Law of God was not passed by human legislators, but was written with the finger of God on two tables of stone [Read Exodus 20].

Jesus reaffirmed it when he said, "Scripture cannot be broken...." John 10:35.

It's an old, old story, begun in the Garden of Eden and the last chapter has not been written yet. But we know how it will turn out. No mystery here.
People's Daily Online -- "I don't think US should be the leader of the world": "Another source of the resentment is the perception that Bush administration wants to act unilaterally in the world, outside of alliance that traditionally governed the ways Bush made foreign policy decisions. In some ways the core of perception problems is centered on 911 terrorist attacks in 2001 in which the US government and Bush administration reacted by deciding that the country would make decisions in foreign affairs that respond only to US interests. They were not going to consult very widely, and not to compromise in making those decisions. That caused rift even among the US allies. So it is natural to see that the image of America is the lowest in public opinion. "
So who do you want, Mr. Phillip Bennett? The Chinese? The French? the Russians? Oh, I get it. You think American newspapermen should be the real leaders. When are you libs going to realize that you and your philosophical ancestors going to realize that you have been wrong on every major issue in the Bolsheveks rose to power by murder, rapine, and terror during WW I? You have been wrong about Cuba, Russia, China, North Korea, Bosnia, Africa, Vietnam, and Central America. Seems there is a pattern here. Every time a communist arises, you begin to salivate, and hope for the salvation of the world.

But you are clever. You form the perception and then you say it is too bad that people think like this. It isn't that Bush didn't consult; you know that, of course. He just refused to submit American interests to the French and the Germans and the Russians. The world doesn't regret it, Mr. Bennett. It is you and your liberal friends who have found your dream lying in the ashes of the Twin Towers. You and your liberal friends lie and lie and lie, and deplore the fact that people have a "perception." But we get it. That's why thinking Americans don't believe the newspapers anymore.

But the jig is up. The American people understand it now, and they understand you. You cannot buy them any more with bread and circuses. 9/11 changed all that, even if it did not change you. Those bombers might be gallant warriors to you and your kind, but they were murdering representatives of a murdering sect. Americans are slow sometimes, but beware when they finally get it. Americans aren't perfect, but they didn't stand for Hitler killing Jews or the Taliban shooting women on the soccer field, or Saddam enjoying his rape houses. You may have a stomach for it. It was your hero Joseph Stalin who said that you have to break eggs to make an omelet.

No thanks. We don't like the omelet, and we don't like people who would rather get good press in China than in Colorado Springs.
