Big Props to the MainStream Media

October 23, 2009

Now usually I don’t agree with anything the Mainstream Media does or says. Today is different. I must say I am quite proud of how they handled themselves on this issue.

The White House contacted the press pool (representatives from ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and FOX) and stated that they would be conducting interviews with the new Pay Czar, Kenneth Feinberg. However, everyone BUT Fox was invited. The other members of the pool stood up for what is right (you know – the Constitution and all) and refused to do the interviews if FOX wasn’t invited. HOORAY for you, mainstream media! So, the White House retaliated by only allowing each interviewer 2 minutes instead of the original 5. Boo freaking hoo.
Of course, when Carol E Lee from Politico asked White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, if he believed that FOX should be removed from the White House press pool, he said that wasn’t his job to decide. Oh really? Sounds like you are trying to make it your job.  Of course, as the President stated, he isn’t losing any sleep over this.  He’s just spending a lot of his time trying to stick it to FOX and making a fool of himself in the process. 

I just love it when evil schemes backfire!


The murder of innocent children should be “safe, legal and rare”

October 17, 2009

Roughly 3000 people died in the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.
Total number of military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan – approximately 5000.
Number of innocent babies murdered every day in the United States alone: 4000. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

In no way do I mean to belittle those who have given their lives in service to our country or those whose lives were taken away by cold, heartless killers on 9/11.  I simply hope that this shows you the vast number of abortions  that are performed everyday in the US. 

Pro-abortion liberals love to say that they think abortion should be “safe, legal and rare”.  Which begs some questions.  If there is nothing wrong with abortion- if you aren’t really killing a child, just a fetus – then why should it be rare?  Why not perform them as often as we can?  If you say something should be rare, then you are at least admitting that it might be a questionable practice.  They love to say that they wouldn’t have an abortion, but they think that others should have the right to.  Well, now, I certainly wouldn’t commit rape, but maybe others should have the right to.  What if rape were safe, legal, and rare? 

They love to throw that guilt trip on you and say, “But what about rape, incest, and cases where the pregnancy will kill the mother?”.  I mean what kind of a person are you to say that all those people who are raped have to keep their babies?  Abortions due to rape and incest combined only account for less than 5% of all abortions.  (Most sources actually say it is only 1%).  That would mean the other 95% of abortions (3800 per day) are due to people using abortion as birth control. 

So the way that liberals get around the fact that abortion is murder is that they claim that the baby inside the womb isn’t a baby.  No folks, that is just a fetus.  It is not legally considered a baby until it is born.  Forget the fact that it has a heartbeat at about 4 weeks after conception.  Forget that most babies can survive outside the womb by weeks 25-28.  One liberal told my husband that a fetus was like “a car without a driver.”

Let’s talk about partial birth abortion.  President Obama thinks it is wonderful.  This is the process where the baby is delivered except for the head which is still inside the mother’s body.  This way they can say it isn’t born yet so it isn’t really a baby yet.  Then the doctor takes a sharp instrument and stabs it into the baby’s brain, killing the baby.  Then the baby can be fully delivered.  Absolutely horrific.

There is also the little matter of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.  This was a measure that was to protect babies who “accidentally” survived abortion.  This measure stated that the babies could not be killed or left to die after they were “accidentally” born.  President Obama opposed a similar measure in the Illinois Senate.  He obviously feels that even though the “fetus” has been born and is now a “baby”, it still deserves to be murdered.  After all, he stated that he wouldn’t want his daughter to be “punished with a baby”.  Aw, isn’t that sweet?

The Bible says that God created man in his own image.  Obviously God holds human life to be very special.  “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee.  And before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee.”  Jeremiah 1:5  KJV  “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30 KJV

I believe that life begins at conception.  Having been pregnant twice, I absolutely cannot believe that the little people I felt kicking around in my belly were not of any value.  Not real people.  Not human.  I believe that God created each life.  Do I think that if I were raped, it would be easy to keep that baby?  No, I don’t think it would be easy, but I truly believe that God would not give you a baby that he wanted you to kill.

What if you have already had an abortion?  Jesus died for this sin too and offers you forgiveness and salvation when you believe in him.  If you are not already a member of a church, contact a local Christian minister and ask for help and counseling.  If you are struggling with whether or not to have an abortion, please know that there are other options.  I currently know several families who would love to have a baby to adopt.  You can birth your baby and give it a nice home.  God created this child and would never want you to murder him or her.  Please explore your options with a caring Christian counselor.  If you go to Planned Parenthood, you will probably be talked into abortion. 

Vote your conscience!  Tell your representatives that Abortion is wrong, and you will not support murderers on Capitol Hill.  God does not take murder lightly!  If you are a Christian and vote for pro-abortion politicians, I wonder how you reconcile that with God’s word.  You will be held accountable.  After King David ordered Uriah killed in the book of 2 Samuel, David confessed to murder.  He did not kill Uriah with his own hands, but his words were responsible for his death.  When you vote pro-abortion, your words are murdering innocent children.  You, like David, are guilty before God.


You lie down with dogs…

October 17, 2009

I think you can tell alot about someone by the people they surround themselves with.  Most people have close friends that share the same interests and habits that they do.  We spend our scarce free time with like-minded Christian conservatives.  I do have people that I love who do not share my ideology, and I will always love them, but I think that most of us choose to surround ourselves with those who think like we do.  For example, I have had the same best friend for twenty years.  If you were to interview us separately, we would probably answer most questions the same.  For the most part, we share the same beliefs on God, family, and country.  This is one of the things that makes us a perfect fit.  (Another being that we are the only ones who get our jokes, but that’s another story!)  My point being that you could learn a lot about me just by knowing my friends and family.

If I were going to pick a group of advisors or assistants, I would certainly pick people who were similar to myself.  Especially if it were a situation where I wasn’t really able to constantly check over that person’s shoulder.  I would want someone who I could appoint and then trust that they would do what I would do in any given situation.  Those people would be acting in my stead and under my authority.  Why would I choose someone who was radically different than me?

Let’s pretend that I am President and I decide that I would like to surround myself with a bunch of people who could advise me and oversee things that I don’t necessarily have the time to oversee.  Let’s say that I may be appointing people who wouldn’t pass a character investigation, so I make them “czars”.  They report directly to me and do not have to go through any approval by Congress.  Wouldn’t it be safe to say that these czars would probably share my ideology?  Would it be accurate to say that you could study the collective beliefs of this group and get a good idea of who I was?

What if one of the members of my group was Van Jones?  What would that say about me?  If one of my own hand-chosen advisors was a self-proclaimed Communist, with a history of radical anti-government comments, would it be safe to say that I shared some (if not all) of his beliefs?  Surely I would know about his stance on these subjects.  Surely I would carefully research my choices.  Well, maybe this one person’s past was overlooked.

But what if you then learned that I sat in the pews of a black liberation theology church for twenty years.  What if my close friend, pastor, and confidante was Jeremiah Wright – the pastor who said ” G. D. America” in a sermon?  What if the same pastor who officiated my wedding and baptized my children also claimed that America deserved what happened on September 11th?  Maybe I sat in that church for all those years and never heard a word.  Maybe I heard everything.  Maybe I heard him when he preached racism against white people and then claimed that it wasn’t racist to hate white people because they deserved it.

Okay, so I’ve got two questionable friends.  You can’t really hold that against me, can you?  Well then you dig a little deeper and find Timothy Geithner.  I appointed him to Treasury secretary despite the fact that he had a history of cheating on his taxes.  He should be trustworthy with the Treasury, right?  Then you find Cass Sunstein.  I made him administrator of the WH office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.  He believes that hunting should be outlawed and that animals have the right to legal representation when they want to sue their owners. 

Aside from my domestic associations that might worry you, I also feel a comraderie with international thugs like Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Kim Jong-Il.  I have also decided to turn my back on our trusted allies like Israel, claiming that the Jewish people are trespassing. 

You couldn’t hold all those things against me!  They don’t speak for me!  I’m my own person!  Just because I surround myself with radical Communists doesn’t mean I am one!  Birds of a feather don’t flock together!  Do they?
