20 Obvious Truths That Will Shock Liberals

4 03 2012

Original Story Here

1) The Founding Fathers were generally religious, gun-toting small government fanatics who were so far to the Right that they’d make Ann Coulter look like Jimmy Carter.

2) The greatest evil this country has ever committed isn’t slavery; it’s killing more than 50 million innocent children via abortion.

3) Conservatives are much more compassionate than liberals and all you have to do to prove it is look at all the studiesshowing that conservatives give more of their money to charity than liberals do.

4) When the Founding Fathers were actually around, there were official state religions and the Bible was used as a textbook in schools. The so-called “wall of separation between church and state” has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with liberal hostility to Christianity.

5) The biggest problem with our economy today is Barack Obama. His demonization of successful people, his driving up gas prices, his regulatory overload and threats to increase taxes have terrified businesses into hunkering down, refusing to spend money, and declining to hire new people. Replacing him would do more than any government policy to spur economic growth.

FORSYTHE and SMITH: Disclosing the abortion-suicide association

 It’s time to lift the veil on hidden health risks of terminating pregnancy

By Clarke Forsythe and Mailee Smith – The Washington Times                                                                                                                                Monday February 20, 2012

All 11 active judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit in St. Louis recently heard one of the most important abortion cases in the federal courts today. The case, Planned Parenthood v. Rounds, involves a South Dakota statute requiring informed consent before a woman undergoes an abortion. While many in the media have focused on the controversies surrounding President Obama’s health care law, this case actually is one of the most significant events on the life issue today.

The hearing focused on what the courts have called “the suicide advisory”: the statute’s requirement that abortion providers give patients “a description of all known medical risks of the procedure and statistically significant risk factors … including … depression [and] increased risk of suicide ideation and suicide.”

This case is the latest example of how the lower federal courts repeatedly have tied up reasonable abortion regulations for years, preventing the regulations from taking effect, even when there is direct language from prior Supreme Court decisions supporting the purpose of the law.

I have no doubt whatsoever that public knowledge of the following has to occasionally make Obama nervous and apprehensive, smoking butts like a chimney.  Perhaps that’s why he’s rumored to be kept sedated.  Xanax, anyone? Prove me wrong.

Obama spends million of tax payer dollars to defend himself against all comers in at least two dozen lawsuits demanding to see his records.  So far, no court in America will hear the case on its merits. Prove me wrong.

Like pimps, his handlers keep their money-maker under their control, toe-ing the line with tried and true drugs of choice: ego, power, perks, male lovers, and crack cocaine. Prove me wrong.

The “community organizer” and his “wife” have never had it so good.  Vacay, anyone? Taxpayer-underwritten campaign trips? Millions of dollars for Madame Michelle’s entourage of make up artists and courtesans?  Private schools for their spawn?

What ever it takes to keep…

Did Mitt Romney force Catholic hospitals to provide Plan B? Mass. Catholic leader says ‘yes’

21 02 2012

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, February 13, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – As politicians in both political parties debate Mitt Romney’s role in implementing a 2005 statute requiring Catholic hospitals in Massachusetts to dispense Plan B – an “emergency contraceptive” that studies and the pill’s manufacturer have suggested can cause early abortions – a leader in the state’s pro-life movement puts the blame squarely on the former governor.

“The injury to the conscience rights of Catholic hospitals was not done so much so much by the church’s ideological enemies on the Left but by the Romney administration,” C.J. Doyle, executive director of the Catholic Action League, told LifeSiteNews.com. The real harm, he says, came from Romney’s private counsel’s interpretation of a 1975 law that would have respected their religious views.

“It wasn’t the liberals. It wasn’t some liberal court. It was not liberal legislators that caused this interpretation of law,” Doyle said. “It was the Romney administration” that “injured the conscience rights and religious freedom rights of Catholic hospitals here.”

In 2005, the then-governor ordered Catholic hospitals to offer the “morning-after” pill in the final act of a showdown between church and state that began 30 years earlier.

In 1975, the Massachusetts legislature passed a law exempting private hospitals from providing abortions or “contraceptive devices or information” if those practices run contrary to their “religious or moral principles.”

In 2005, a new state law required all hospitals to provide Plan B to rape victims.

At first Romney, who said throughout the legislative process that he had no opinion on the bill, vetoed it and wrote an op-ed in the Boston Globe explaining that he had pledged that he “would not change our abortion laws either to restrict abortion or to facilitate it.”

“I believe that abortion is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother,” he wrote.

The heavily Democratic body voted to override his veto in September 2005. Read the rest of this entry »





Happy Presidents’ Day

21 02 2012

 

Celebrating George Washington’s birthday is an American tradition to honor our first president. Though Presidents’ Day is now the more commonly-used term, and has expanded to include all presidents, the legal term for this federal holiday remains Washington’s Birthday.

We honor President Washington, not because he was flawless; he was not. He was, however, the epitome of self-sacrifice—both as a soldier and a statesman. It was that sacrifice that helped make America what it was destined to become. We honor him because of what he accomplished and the manner in which he approached service to this nation: with a servant’s heart.

I am on record as acknowledging President Washington as my favorite Founder precisely because of that heart. He did not seek power. He accepted it reluctantly. He answered the call, offered himself up in the name of service, and helped to usher in a new day. At a time when he could have remained in office perpetually, as some expected, he chose to return to life as a citizen rather than seek a third term. He fulfilled his destiny, and his legacy is secure.

It is refreshing to reflect on one who was so far removed in spirit from the inside baseball that too often defines politics now. America celebrates President Washington for his decision to serve for the right reasons. Today, we could certainly use a little more Washington in DC and a little less BS in Washington.

Happy Presidents’ Day.

The Contraception Issue: Women’s Health or Religious Freedom

17 02 2012

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

The left would love to make this issue of mandating religious-run institutions to provide free contraceptives and abortifacients into a women’s health issue.  They made that the case yesterday during a hearing of religious leaders where they voiced their opinions on the matter.  However, if this was about the issue of contraceptives, then why bring it up now?  Why would Republicans (and some Democrats) only be taking issue with this after the Obama administration announced that they were going to force this mandate on those who have religious objections to it?  The answer is common sense to most people but I am going to clear it up as both a woman and a Catholic.  No one is attempting to block women from accessing contraceptives.  Even those who object to this mandate are not, in any way, restricting accessibility for anyone.  The argument is over whether or not religions should be forced with betraying their beliefs or face heavy fines if they fail to comply.

If we play the games that the left is attempting to manipulate this issue with, then I would have some questions for them.  If this is about women’s health, then why are abortions legal?  There is plenty of evidence that abortions are harmful to women, both physically and mentally.  In the spirit of improving women’s health, why not mandate free mammograms?  Or free cancer treatments? I think I could continue with these examples for quite a while.

I wanted to end with a couple of quotes from one of my favorite Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson:

In justice, too, to our excellent Constitution, it ought to be observed, that it has not placed our religious rights under the power of any public functionary.

If the freedom of religion, guaranteed to us by law in theory, can ever rise in practice under the overbearing inquisition of public opinion, then and only then will truth, prevail over fanaticism.
