We Must Move Into Action!

From FeministBlogs:

The international mainstream press is awash in coverage of the abomination that is occurring in South Dakota. The Boston Herald, the Australian Broadcasting Company, and the Hartford
Courant
top the list when I Google for articles related to the South Dakota legislature's passage of an outright ban on abortion.We have stepped back in time and are going headlong down a slippery slope of restrictions on women's reproductive freedoms that I never expected to see in my lifetime. I grossly underestimated the forces that surrounded me in my childhood here in East Tennessee in a small town completely dominated by two Southern Baptist churches.
I thought that after I left and moved to live in other areas of the country that I had left behind the misery that the imposition of their rigid lifestyle imposes on everyone in the community.I feel as if I am awakening now to a nightmare in my 50s in which that same emotional and cultural straitjacket that was the burden of my childhood and adolescence is suddenly going to be imposed on the entire country. This is an outrage.Do I hear the drumbeat of fascism closing in? Will our freedoms erode so slowly that there is no real resistance? Is there an echo in the room that originated in Europe in the 30s?I do not believe I am overreacting.The thought of incest and rape victims forced into pregnancies brought on by the rampant violence against women in our country moves me to rage and action. We must stop this monster before it consumes our
reproductive freedom from border to border and coast to coast. The ethnocentric bigots who are pushing these bonds of reproductive slavery on the women of the United States need to know that we will not submit without an all-consuming struggle.While we have been complacent in our professional services that stand in for political movements these days, we have allowed the opposing forces to move ahead incrementally until we have arrived at this scenario in South Dakota. We need to fire the social workers and the grant writers and get some activists
with fire in their bellies to move this movement forward in the tradition of Alice Paul and others like her who would stand in the rain and the cold enduring all manner of cruelty, knowing that women's lives were at stake.Women's lives are at stake now. Where are the women and supportive men with fire in their bellies? We need you now.

Yes, welcome to the United States of Hell: where women are actually not allowed to slaughter their unborn children. Oh the humanity!

I agree. We should enslave women. We should force them to have children, actually dress decently, petition them to work at home, make them respect those in authority, and other things that are so terrible that they are worth fighting against. On top of that, I think that all women should be kept in solitude if they somehow disagree with these proposals. Don't like what I say? Bummer.

That's my proposal. Enjoy.

S.D. Plans To Sign Anti-Abortion Bill

From NewsMax:

Gov. Mike Rounds said he is inclined to sign a bill that would ban nearly all abortions in South Dakota, making it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless it was necessary to save the woman's life.

The ban, including in cases of rape or incest, was approved Friday by South Dakota lawmakers, setting up a deliberate frontal assault on Roe v. Wade at a time when some activists see the U.S. Supreme Court as more willing than ever to overturn the 33-year-old decision.

Planned Parenthood, which operates the only clinic in the state that provides abortions, vowed to sue. But even before the bill has a signature, money to defend it poured in. Lawmakers were told during the debate that an anonymous donor pledged $1 million to defend the ban, and the Legislature was setting up a special account to accept donations.

"We've had people stopping in our office trying to drop off checks to promote the defense of this legislation already," Rounds said.

Many opponents and supporters of abortion rights believe the U.S. Supreme Court is more likely to overturn its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion now that conservatives John Roberts and Samuel Alito are on the bench. Lawmakers said growing support among South Dakotans for abortion restrictions gave the bill momentum.

As Vox Day once said just recently, "The will of the people of the sovereign state of South Dakota have spoken."

Oh the feminists must be having a great-time dealing with this. Maybe they should let the black-robes on their thrones of oak make their decisions for them.

Another Hilter

From Israel National News:

"These heinous acts are committed by a group of Zionists and occupiers that have failed. They have failed in the face of Islam's logic and justice," Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state-controlled TV. "But be sure, you will not be saved from the wrath and power of the justice-seeking nations by resorting to such acts," the Iranian firebrand declared, answered by cries of "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" from the crowd.

Khameini urged Shi'ite Muslims not to take revenge on Sunnis but instead to focus their anger upon the West. "There are definitely some plots to force Shi'ites to attack the mosques and other properties respected by the Sunnis," he said. "Any measure to contribute to that direction is helping the enemies of Islam and is forbidden by Sharia [Islamic law]." The Islamic leader declared a week of mourning in Iran due to the bombing.

"I tell the Americans, the Zionists and the criminals who committed yesterday's crime in Samarra that all your aims will fail," Hizbullah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah said at a rally of Lebanese Shi'ites south of Beirut Friday. "I tell them that the Muslim nation will not be torn apart - it will not fall for the tricks of the occupier."

In Pakistan, an Islamic leader blamed the attacks on India, in addition to the U.S. and Israel. Maulana Hafiz Hussain Ahmad, the head of a Pakistani Islamic group, said he was "praying fervently for another Hitler who should affect another and more powerful Holocaust against the nefarious, plotting and scheming Jews."

So without ANY evidence or foreknowledge to back-up their accusations, they plunge into idiocy headfirst and blame the Jews, yet again. Gee, how surprising. 3000 years of unchanging history rings true today as it did then.

It seems that there will be no end to the amount of heinous things they can pray to Allah. But its funny because after all of these years of war against the Jews, they have been unable to defeat them; the Jews have always laid a beating on them. Unbelievable, yet they never learn.

3000 years and counting

See How They Cheer? What Character!

From WorldNetDaily:


The movie, which began showings in Germany three weeks ago, has played to sold out audiences since. Over 130,000 people, mostly young Muslims, saw the film in its first five days. The London Telegraph reports Berlin audiences, made up mostly of Turkish young men, clapping furiously when the building housing the U.S. military commander in northern Iraq is blown up and a standing ovation – accompanied by shouts of "Allah is great!" – when the movie's American antagonist, played by Billy Zane, is stabbed in the chest.

"The Americans always behave like this," one 18-year-old viewer said. "They slaughtered the Red Indians and killed thousands in Vietnam. I was not shocked by the film, I see this on the news every day."


I'm in serious danger of being political incorrect and not caring here but, all of these Arabs need to be shipped back to where they came from. They cheer and howl as movies depicting Americans being stabbed and blown up are being played, and yet they go on murder-sprees all around the world, slaughtering hundreds of Christians, and burning down buildings because of some pathetic cartoon drawn by a nobody in Denmark of all places.

I don't mean to sound callous, but, do these Arabs actually have any moral character, at all, ever? Or are they just tools used by Imans and whoever leads them to cause chaos and deliberate aggravation where they ought not? Most likely they are since they play along so well.

Who cares. It'll all be setlled eventually.

Quake of the Week: Mozambique

From WorldNetDaily:

QotW: Wednesday, February 22, 2006; Mozambique; 7.5; Quake 4/year 2006

MAPUTO, Mozambique — A powerful earthquake struck Mozambique early Thursday morning, shaking buildings and forcing people from hundreds of miles around to dash into the streets for safety. There were no immediate reports of injuries.The magnitude-7.5 quake struck at 12:19 a.m. in southern Mozambique, 140 miles southwest of the coastal city of Beira, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The temblor was felt in neighboring Zimbawe and as far south as Durban, South Africa, 800 miles away.Elias Daudi, Mozambique's national director of energy, said on state radio that authorities still do not have any information on casualties or the extent of the damage. He also urged people not to return to their buildings because of possible aftershocks.
In Berira, Tivoli Hotel manager Johana Neves said none of her guests was hurt but many tourists awoke and ran terrified from the building."It felt like the building was going to fall down and it went on for a long time, the trembling," she said by telephone. "It felt like you were in a boat, it was shaking everything yet, it's strange, nothing is broken, even the windows."

Muslims Attack Christian Pastor in Indonesia

From WorldNetDaily:

"Santoso," a farmer and a pastor for a small village church in Indonesia, was attacked on the way home after sharing Christ with Muslims on a farm in the city of Poso. He and a friend, both on motorbikes, were hit with a machete wielded by a Muslim who jumped from a bush. The Muslim tried to cut off his head but missed, hitting Santoso in the mouth. He ran to his village holding his face. Because of the attack, Santoso lost 10 teeth and damaged his tongue; his friend's fingers were cut off. This was the third attempt on Santoso's life. The Voice of the Martyrs medical staff has flown him to Java twice for treatment and is happy to report Santoso now has teeth implants. Before going into his last surgery, he told VOM: "I read Ephesians 1:19 which promises God's great power to us who believe. God sends me power so I can bear suffering. We rejoice that one Muslim has come to Christ." Christians across the 3,000 inhabited islands of Indonesia are suffering increased attacks, church burnings, imprisonment and threats from angry mobs because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Much of the world would like you to believe that Christians are no longer persecuted, but Santoso would disagree. Now you can stay informed of what is
really happening to your Christian brothers and sisters in countries like Indonesia and discover practical ways that you can get involved.

Okay, now I'm really pissed off. No longer are the Muslims even trying to hide their hypocrisy. Now, they're basically saying "If you don't believe Islam...you die!" Their hypocritical attitude is sickening.

Middle-East Bans Brokeback Mountain

From LifeSite:

China, despite its poor record on human rights and outright ban on most non-state-run religion, still holds on to some traditional values abandoned by most western nations. These values have led censors there to ban the homosexual propaganda film, Brokeback Mountain.On Wednesday, the United Arab Emirates followed suit, banning the film. More middle-eastern countries are expected to follow UAEs lead. The Emirates’ Ministry of Information decided to shelter its
citizens from the “offensive, abnormal behaviours” depicted in the movie, adding that Brokeback Mountain would “destroy the values and morals of the society.” The Malaysian distributor for the film has not even bothered to ask the country for permission to air the spectacle.“The film will upset the people of this culture and tradition,” said Dr Abdullah Al Amiri, Chairman of the Committee of Financial, Economical and Industrial Affairs of Sharjah Consultative Council,
according to press reports. “The portrayal of the sexual behaviour of its main character is offensive to eastern societies, particularly Muslims and the Arabs since Islam forbids abnormal behaviours like homosexuality.”

Wow. It seems the Unenlightened Arabs and Christians are the only ones still stuck in the past! Wait, did I just diss Arabs? But if I don't defend homosexuals...err...those of a different lifestyle, then I will be homophobic. Oh no, then the Muslims will hate me since I support homosexuality! Ah...eh...can't take it!

Catch-22 for those who try to please everyone and are willing to compromise their values to do so.

The Drumbeat Continues: Pentagon Plans Attack On Tehran

From WorldNetDaily:

Planners with the Pentagon's Central Command and Strategic Command are working closely with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to develop working plans for a devastating strike on Iran's nuclear facilities in order to block its efforts to produce nuclear weapons, reports the London Telegraph. The increasing number of threats against Israel and the West by President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad and the growing disclosures about Iran's nuclear program have forced the administration to assess all military options. As reported by WorldNetDaily, Ahmadinejad told a large crowd in Tehran yesterday that Israel would be "removed" by the Palestinians and "other nations," and dismissed the West as "hostages of the Zionists." "The people of the U.S. and Europe
should pay a heavy price for becoming hostages to Zionists," Ahmadinejad declared. "We ask the West to remove what they created sixty years ago and if they do not listen to our recommendations, then the Palestinian nation and other nations will eventually do this for them. Do the removal of Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations."
Ahmadinejad also threatened to abandon previous commitments to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty if harsh measures were taken against Iran for its nuclear program. Iran has restarted its uranium enrichment program and removed International Atomic Energy Agency surveillance cameras from its nuclear research sites following last week's U.N. vote to submit the matter to the Security Council. The most likely military strategy, it is believed, will depend on heavy bombing by B2 bombers flying from bases in Missouri and refueling in mid-air. Each plane is capable of carrying 40,000 pounds of precision weapons, including bunker-busting bombs. Air strikes would be supported by ballistic missiles carrying conventional warheads fired from Trident nuclear submarines if an attack is delayed for two years. That is the length of time required to convert the highly accurate missiles from their current nuclear configuration to
conventional explosives

How does telegraphing our military strategy against Iran benefit us in any way? Also, how come we are so complacent about this? If a nation like Iran is developing nuclear weapons and has said that they will use them to destroy Israel, then shouldn't we be a little up-in-arms or something?

I guess not.

Those Radical Religious Clerics

From Echidne of the Snakes:

You may remember the hullabaloo about the Air Force having problems with radical religious clerics of the fundamentalist type. There were accusations of oppressing those who had other religions or none, and all this led to new guidelines last August, guidelines which warned about prayers at public events and pointed out that expressions of faith by superiors may be interpreted as official statements by their subordinates.So far so good. Then James Dobson, a
radical religious cleric, got going with his Focus on the Family organization, and look what happened:
But evangelical groups, such as the Colorado-based Focus on the Family, saw
the guidelines as overly restrictive. They launched a nationwide petition drive, sounded alarms on Christian radio stations, and deluged the White House and Air Force Secretary Michael W. Wynne's office with e-mails calling the guidelines an infringement of the Constitution's guarantees of free speech and free exercise of
religion.Seventy-two members of Congress also signed a letter to President Bush criticizing the guidelines and urging him to issue an executive order guaranteeing the right of military chaplains to pray "in Jesus' name" rather than being forced to offer nonsectarian prayers at public ceremonies.The revised guidelines are considerably shorter than the original, filling one page instead of four. They place more emphasis on the Constitution's free exercise clause, which is mentioned four
times, than on its prohibition on any government establishment of religion, which is mentioned twice.
It sounds like the radical clerics won this one.
Here's the way an airheaded feminist's mind operates: Christians sucks. Everybody has to respect everyone elses religion, except Christianity. And if Christians so much as hint at foul play, they are automatically wrong and deemed radical religious clerics. They should burn in their imaginary Hell forever! Hey, did you hear about the peaceful Muslim protests at the Danish embassies the other day?

The Drumbeat Continues: Ahmadinejad Promises Israel's Removal

From WorldNetDaily:

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today echoed his earlier threats to "wipe Israel off the map" by telling a mass demonstration in Tehran, commemorating the 27th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, that Palestinians and "other nations" will remove Israel from the region, adding a warning to the West that harsh measures against the nation's nuclear program would result in Iran walking away from the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT). "The policy of Iran
has so far been pursuing nuclear technology within the framework of the NPT and IAEA(International Atomic Energy Agency)," he said. "If we see you (the West) want to violate the right of the Iranian people by using those regulations (against us), you should know that the Iranian people will revise its policies. You should do nothing that will lead to such a revision in our policy," said Ahmadinejad. The crowd, numbered in the hundreds of thousands accoding to
state media, responded to Ahmadinejad's defense of its nuclear program – believed by U.S. intelligence to be an effort to acquire atomic weapons – with cries of "Nuclear energy is our undisputable right," "Death to America," "Death of Israel," "Death to Denmark."
"Death to Denmark!" I cracked up laughing when I heard that last part. You have America, Israel, and then....Denmark. Cracked me up.

And so the drumbeat continues...

S. Dakota Passes Bill Criminalizing Abortion

From WorldNetDaily:

The penalty for performing illegal abortions would be a maximum of five years in prison. Supporters say the Woman's Health and Life Protection Act, which passed 47-22, is the result of new research compiled by a legislative task force showing life begins at conception and abortion is harmful to women.
As WorldNetDaily reported, a similar bill passed the state House in 2004 by a 54-14 vote, before its narrow defeat in the Senate, 18-17. The bill actually initially passed the Senate, but Gov. Mike Rounds, known for his pro-life voting record as a member of the South Dakota legislature, issued a "style and form" veto. Rounds sent the bill back with wording changes to make sure existing abortion restrictions were not threatened if the bill were struck down in court. One senator, however, who saw this as overstepping authority, changed his vote, which defeated the bill. But corrections have been made to the bill, said state Rep. Roger Hunt, who believes now is the right time to overturn the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that rescinded all state laws banning abortion. "DNA testing now can establish the unborn child has a separate and distinct personality from the mother," he told KELO-TV in Sioux Falls, S.D. "We know a lot more about post-abortion harm to the mother." The bill now heads to the
state Senate. In 2004, two pro-life groups clashed over the demise of the previous measure. The public-interest Thomas More Law Center, which helped draft the bill, accused National Right to Life of "complicity" with pro-abortion groups for lobbying against it. Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the More Center concluded, "One thing we know for sure, Planned Parenthood and NARAL could not be happier with National Right To Life." In response, National Right to Life called the charge of joining forces with pro-abortion groups "absurd, untrue, andunproductive."
The pro-life group argued the bill was made virtually ineffective through a "health exception," which allowed abortion "if there is a serious risk of substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant woman." The More Center insisted, despite the exception, the bill still required doctors to use reasonable medical efforts to preserve the life of the unborn child as well as the mother. Republican state Rep. Elizabeth Kraus, a former medical technologist, said the new bill, HB1215, can be the legal means of stopping abortion, according to the Associated Press. "The state cannot continue to protect the abortion practice, for the right and duty to preserve life cannot coexist with the right to destroy it," Kraus said. The House rejected amendments that would provide exceptions for rape, incest and the health of the mother. But doctors who perform abortions on a woman in danger of dying would not be prosecuted.

Oh dear! Now those women out there won't be able to go to an abortio clinic and have their kid slaughtered. Oh the humanity! We should rise up and fight somebody! This injustice is just the last straw!

School Board Ignores Parents, Starts Schools Month Early

The Broward County School Board told a room full of frustrated parents, teachers and community leaders Tuesday that the 2006-07 school year would begin Aug. 9, even though thousands had demanded a later start date."We're going to do what's best for students," Board Chairman Ben Williams told about 100 people who packed into the board's downtown meeting room. "And what's best for students might not be what you might think."Board members voted 5-4 in favor of the new calendar, which begins on a Wednesday. The decision sent the crowd pouring out of meeting room in anger."Oh, we've got it! It's a done deal! Done deal!" Lynn Simon, 44, of Weston, yelled over her shoulder as she shoved open the doors and stomped out.Outside, Alice Simon of Coral Springs and two other parents huddled together, seething over what they considered to be the board's dismissal of parent opinions.They vowed to remember, on election day, that Williams, Maureen Dinnen, Beverly Gallagher, Bob Parks and Carole Andrewssupported a calendar that garnered little public support."It's over for them," Simon said. "We will picket their areas when it's voting time."The school district had recommended starting school in early August for the second year in a row because it wouldn't interrupt the pay schedule for teachers and school staff. The district also wanted an early start to allow high school students to finish their fall coursework before winter break and ensure that each semester would get an equal
number of days.
I'd love to see the school's student population decrease by a third if this happened. Maybe then the school would start listening to the parents and not pulling the usual: It's for the kids. What a laugh that would be.

Canada Plans To Ban Marriage, Redefine It Out Of Existence

From WorldNetDaily:

Prominent American conservative commentator Stanley Kurtz has uncovered a chilling plot for Canada – the former Liberal government, in collusion with liberal courts, has been attempting to “abolish marriage” entirely.The first obvious reality is that the past Liberal governments, with the courts, have already caused critical damage to marriage – the advent of so-called same-sex marriage is a major step towards abolishing marriage. A next step will be legalization of polygamy, as the Liberals have already considered. (See http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2006/feb/ for more on a Liberal government-sponsored study that promotes polygamy as a norm for Canada).As Kurtz describes, “Legalize gay marriage, followed by multi-partner marriage, and pretty soon the whole idea of marriage will be meaningless. It’s like this,” he adds. “The way to abolish marriage, without seeming to abolish it, is to redefine the institution out of existence. If everything can be marriage, pretty soon nothing will be marriage.” Kurtz explains that the introduction of polygamy, arguably because that would appeal to Muslims in our multicultural society, would lead to “the creation of a modern, secular, ‘non-patriarchal’ relationship system that would allow for marriage-like unions in any combination of number or gender.”“That would mean the effective abolition of marriage,” Kurtz adds. “But to get to the post-modern version of multi-partner unions, Canada’s old-fashioned anti-polygamy laws have got to go.”Kurtz’ emphasizes that same-sex “marriage” and the legalization of polygamy are means for the “social elite” to achieve their real goal: “the slow-motion abolition of marriage.” “And radical as that goal may seem, Canada is a whole lot closer to abolishing marriage than you realize,” he warns. “Canada’s liberal courts have already knocked down most of the legal distinctions between marriage and unmarried cohabitation. Given time, growing public tolerance, increased pressure from Muslim immigrants, incremental court decisions, continued growth in Canada’s already burgeoning polyamory movement, and the return of a Liberal government, Martha Bailey (author of the pro-polygamy report linked to above) and friends may yet achieve their goal.”

The government, what a horrid institution. Do the liberals ever for one single second of their meager little existence have a moment where they want to do something right? Are they so entrenched in corruption that they just bow at the altar of decadence and say, "Let's make marriage non-existent." It's a slow removal of the traditional Christian beliefs. Accept it or not, believe it or not, that's what it's becoming.

Canada's going to die. Sad, isn't it?

Picking On Those Who 'Turn The Other Cheek'


The woman in charge of the city display, Jeannine Gage, says she had only received positive feedback about the artwork. "It's not like there's an angry crowd of residents at the doors of City Hall," Gage is quoted as saying. Marcus says censorship of Christianity has become a serious problem. "The city is a victim in this, too, because they're just scared [of a lawsuit]," Marcus told the paper. "Rather than offend someone they just take it down." Blossom, who is black, acknowledge the church is a big part of black history, but that fact wasn't enough to change his mind. "Like any other race, black people are tied in with a lot of things," he said. "I don't think that gives us the right, because it's Black History Month, to infringe upon the rights of other people."

Apparently, its easier to do things against a religion that preaches forgiveness, love your neighbor, and turn the other cheek, but when a religion that lives and dies by the sword comes into play, oh no you can't do anything against them because they might start killing someone.

Wallowing In The Mud of A Dying Land

According to the fairly odd Pat Robertson, Europe is right now executing a racial suicide:ROBERTSON: Studies that I have read indicate that having babies is a sign of a faith in the future. You know, unless you believe in the future, you're not going to take the trouble of raising a child, educating a child, doing something. If there is no future, why do it? Well, unless you believe in God, there's really no future. Andwhen you go back to the existentialism of Jean-Paul Sartre, the whole idea of this desperate nightmare we are in -- you know, that we are in this prison, and it has no
hope, no exit. That kind of philosophy has permeated the intellectual thinking of Europe, and hopefully it doesn't come here. But nevertheless, ladies and gentlemen, Europe is right now in the midst of racial suicide because of the declining birth rate. And they just can't get it together. Why? There's no hope.

This is hilarious. The average European does not read Sartre, and there is no such race as "European". But what Robertson is really talking about is not at all hilarious: it is about the desire to have more white people and fewer people who are Muslims. Fear. Fear is what energizes most wingnuts nowadays.If you study history you will find that the fear of "racial" suicides or its reverse, the explosion in the numbers of some undesirable racial or ethnic or religious group, is common. Teddy Roosevelt asked (white) American women to have at least four children each, because he feared the impact of the then strong immigration from Southern European countries. The wingnuts who worry about the death of the "white race" want white women to have more children and women of color fewer. It is the women who are to blame, by the way, for any lack of more whites. The white women are selfish for not bringing into the world lots and lots of little white babies. But then black and brown women are selfish if they have lots of children, because it shows that they are sucking off the teats of the government if in this country, and because they are contributing to the population explosion if in a developing country. Only white women who have hard-working white husbands should breed, especially educated white women. And they should stay at home with the white babies.The fear of "racial suicide" is especially weird when it is expressed by the evolutionary psychologist faction of the right-wing. For these people believe
that evolution should select for the kinds of people they are (mostly white), and they are furious that this isn't happening through a white population explosion. It is the women's fault, naturally, or probably the fault of the feminists who have somehow stopped evolution from working properly (properly being the idea that there should be lots more white people who are deemed to be the fittest by this group because of their greater "intelligence").


Well, yeah it kind-of is the women's fault. Who else is not having the babies? All of those not-pregnant guys running around?

I may not agree with everything Pat Robertson says, but one thing is certain: Europe is dying. The Muslims are overrunning it. This has nothing to do with racial hate, and last I looked, there is no such race as "Muslims."

America, unlike Europe, is made up of only immigrants. Europe for hundreds and hundreds of years has been made up of it's own races living in their own countries, so they don't have to tolerate nor change their customs because other people don't like them. Europe belongs to the Europeans, not the Muslims. The Muslims have 5 million square miles of land to live on, they don't need any more land (note: America has 3.5 million square miles).

So, when Muslims are having six children each and Europeans are having one, something is wrong here. Either those guys out there are not getting pregnant enough or those women are like: "it's my body, not yours. I'll do with it what I want, when I want. If I decide it's time for a child, its time. So back off." Alright, fine by me. Go wallow in the mud of your dying country. I guess that's all you've ever wanted, right?

No Duh Women Are Human

From FeministBlogs:

Australian Democratic leader Senator Lyn Allison has taken a novel approach to explaining her pro-choice position. Last night in the Senate she said, "An estimated one in three women have had an abortion, and I am one of them." Sen. Allison also noted that if she hadn’t terminated her pregnancy at 18 years old, she wouldn’t be in the Senate now.

"Women are fully human," she said. "It is galling listening to the men, and it is mostly men, who have such contempt for women who terminate unwanted pregnancies, who have neither the compassion nor the understanding of the huge and, for many, daunting task of taking an embryo the size of a grain of rice to adulthood." ..."There are plenty of blokes around this place who don't understand why women would do this.There are complex reasons why women need to make this decision … I wanted to send a message to all those women to say I'm one of them."

Sen. Allison was one of several politicians to get personal during a debate over the abortifacient, RU486.

They must think we are utterly braindead. How truly stupid do they perceive men to be? No duh women are human. We are not doubting what they are, just saying that "Look, you don't have the so-called right to an abortion. You never have, and it's not going to magically appear right before you."

It is absolutely galling to me to hear women, and its mostly women who seem to be so hell-bent on clinging to their beloved right to an abortion. Perhaps that is their only true source of happiness: keeping abortion legal.

And They Wonder Why The World Hates Them

Five Afghan men who had converted to Christianity have been killed in separate incidents since late June near the borders of eastern Afghanistan.All five men were stabbed or beaten to death in summary executions by Taliban adherents who accused them of abandoning Islam and then “spreading Christianity” in their communities.

The title is not referring to this story, nor the Christians that were martyred by these hypocritical terrorists. No, this is what I am talking about.

At least 3,000 protesters enraged by the alleged desecration of the Koran clashed with police and torched two cinemas in Pakistan's second largest city Lahore, police said on Wednesday.
The city, was tense after the mob rampaged through a poor neighbourhood overnight and also smashed up dozens of vehicles, local police officer Mohammad Abbas said. The trouble erupted late on Tuesday when copies of the Muslim holy book were found lying in a drain in the Bhatta chowk area on the fringes of the sprawling city.

What a bunch of scumbags. The slightest thing throws them into a blind rage against a faceless blasphemer. They must kill, maim, destroy, burn everything in the name of Allah! Kill the infidels is their slogan. I don't see any peace in that, do you?

I'm not for desecrating one's religion or artifacts, but when a group of people are thrown into riots because of this and completely ignore the Christians being martyred, I have a hard time respecting them and not wanting them all beaten to a bloody pulp.

If a group of people are so willing to kill for something like this, then what happens when Muslims are hanged because of violence? It's as if someone is egging them on into this, making them more and more violent. A hypocrisy such as their own is hardly to be rivaled by anyone in this day and age.

I'm just waiting for the one final thing that will throw them into jihad. They obviously want to fight; they'll lose, but then lets give them what they want.

More People Beginning to Fear Iran

From WorldNetDaily:

Americans' fears about Iran have grown sharply over the last few months as efforts by the United States and Europe to slow Tehran's nuclear program have been firmly rejected, a poll found. More people in this country now rate Iran as the biggest threat to the U.S., 27 percent, than say that about any other country, including NorthKorea, China and Iraq, according to the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.
As recently as October, Iraq and China were seen as the biggest threats, closely followed by North Korea. "The threat from Iran has really penetrated, with two of three saying Iran's nuclear program represents a major threat," said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center. "Among people who have been following news about the issue, there's even greater concern." Iranian leaders say their nuclear program is aimed only at producing nuclear power for their country, but officials in the U.S. and Europe are worried that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. In recent
days, Iran ended cooperation with the United Nations' nuclear watchdog agency and said it would start uranium enrichment and bar surprise inspections of its facilities.

Iran is a threat, in a sense, mostly because it borders the Persian Gulf where the oil flows from out of the Middle East. If a conflict developes because of Iran, the Gulf will be quarantined and nothing will be able to flow from that, thus crippling our oil imports.

So, I'm not worried about Iran with nuclear weapons, because a) Israel has hundreds, b) the U.S. has thousands, and c) Iran will a fraction of that. While the nukes may cause damage, they won't destroy a country; Israel, on the other hand, can and will attack Iran if it is threatened.

These are interesting times, for all of us.

The Muslims Counter The Cartoon With Their Own

From WorldNetDaily:

European Islamists Counter Danes With Cartoons Depicting Hitler, HolocaustA
European Islamic organization called the Arab European League has countered the recent cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed with cartoons of their own, questioning the Holocaust and showing Anne Frank in bed with Hitler. This statement explains their rationale: After the lectures that Arabs and Muslims received from Europeans on Freedom of Speech and on Tolerance. And after that many European newspapers republished the Danish cartoons on the Prophet Mohammed. AEL decided to enter the cartoon business and to use our right to artistic expression. Just like the newspapers in Europe claim that they only want to defend the freedom of speech and do not desire to stigmatise Muslims,we also do stress that our cartoons are not meant as an offence to anybody and ought not to be taken as a statement against any group, community or historical fact. If it is the time to break Taboos and cross all the red lines, we certainly do not want to stay behind.
What would be ironic, terrible, but ironic, is if the Europeans woke up and began burning Muslim areas the same as they did with the Europeans. Such maturity on their part!

Apparently, neither side has any intelligence whatsoever.

As If They Couldn't Make Boys More Aggressive: No Tag On Playground

Normally I wouldn't post something like this on this blog, but the air is right for it. It seems that the legal system has done one thing it was aiming to do all along: make boys even more miserable in school while pushing for a "calmer, more gentler enviroment."

I say "Screw that." When I was in elementary school, we played tag on concrete. The teachers didn't care, neither did the parents. If you fell, you got up. If you got hurt, you shook it off. You didn't say to a lawyer, "Help, my kid tripped while playing tag."

Dodge ball is out. Too aggressive.
Ropes courses are out. Too much liability.
And don't even think about proposing a gun club at your child's school these days.
But when the principal of Spokane's Washington's Adams Elementary School banned the playing of tag by students on the playground, at least one 3rd-grader had enough. Kubby Boyd organized a petition and got his friends to sign it. He hopes it will change Principal Mary Weber's mind. Weber says the games were just getting too rough. Several other schools in the same district say they have banned the hazardous game of tag, too. Those that still allow it have strict rules such as no pushing or shoving and playing only on soft, grassy surfaces.

Oh no! Dodge ball! You might get hit! That's the point. Its the wussy-parents out there that think the legal system is the answer for every little manner of imperfection that intercedes in their child's life. The problem with boys today is: they have too much unused energy in schools and the schools think "neutering" them by proposing less aggressive sports is the answer. I laugh. I cry.

This whole thing is simply ridiculous. Both the teachers and the parents need to be slapped if they think that their kids are entitled to a wound-less school career.

End of the Spear: Christians Debate The Message the Character

The schizophrenic response from the Christian community is a blow to the movie's producers, who were hoping for a unified "Passion of the Christ"-type turnout. "It's disappointing," says Jim Hanon, the film's director and co-writer. "Especially because the message of the story is that you should reach out in love to people you disagree with."When the movie's producers offered the
part to Allen, who currently attends a Christian congregation, they didn't know he was gay. (The producers aren't exactly the target audience for The Advocate, which put Allen on the cover when he came out in 2001.) Ultimately, the decision to leave Allen in the role was left up to the man the movie is based on, Steve Saint, since Allen was set to play Steve—and his slain father—in the film. "My dad was my hero, and the thought of someone playing him that advocates that lifestyle made me very uncomfortable," says Saint. "But I realized it wasn't for me to condone or to condemn what Chad does or doesn't do. That is God's prerogative. And I feel that God had his hand in setting up this complex scenario for Chad to play this part."Not everyone agrees that Allen is God-sent. Janz recently got more than 100 pastors to join him in signing a letter to the movie's producers saying that they couldn't in good conscience support the film. There is, however, one upside to having Allen in the movie. "I'm absolutely sure we're having people check it out that never would have gone to a 'Christian' movie," says Allen. "I went with 30 of my close friends, and we walked away having these amazing spiritual conversations together." Which is exactly what both Saints were trying to do in that Amazon jungle.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't feel any significant blow to my conscience if I walked into that movie, saw the film, and liked it, especially if it was about a martyred Christian missionary. Regardless of the fact that this man is gay, if the man in the movie is not portrayed as gay, then the film should be alright, correct?

If people feel it morally compromising, then they shouldn't go see the movie, but in my opinion, if the movie doesn't alter the facts or changes what was happening, then the movie is good. Some of the people I work with at my Christian youth group said that the movie was awesome, knowing full-well that the main character (in reality) is gay. Moral failures? No.

But that's my two cents. Perhaps I'll go see the movie soon once I learn more about it.

The Drumbeat Continues: Frist Advices Military Action

A new section: The Drumbeat Continues: Countdown to the Iranian Conflict.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Saturday night that the United States must be prepared to take military action against Iran if nonviolent means don't deter the country from building nuclear weapons. Iran has said it wants to enrich uranium only to make nuclear fuel for generating electricity. But concerns that it might misuse the technology led the International Atomic Energy Agency on Saturday to report Iran to the U.N. Security Council. The United States has long advocated Security Council action against Iran, including possible political and economic sanctions, which have not yet occurred. Asked whether Congress had the political will to use military force against Iran if necessary, First said: "The answer is yes, absolutely." "We cannot allow Iran to become a nuclear nation," Frist told reporters at the Missouri GOP's annual Lincoln Days conference. "We need to use diplomatic sanctions. If that doesn't work, economic sanctions, and if that doesn't work, the potential for military use has to be on the table."

Proposal: Self-Harmers Get Fresh Blades; Woohoo!

From WorldNetDaily:

A professional nurses group is proposing that "self-harming" patients who are intent on mutilating themselves be given clean blades, bandages and "how-to" advice so they can cut themselves more safely. The proposal for "safe" self-harm will be debated in April at the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Congress and is expected to prove controversial. Current practice mirrors what most people expect of the medical profession – stopping anyone from harming
himself and removing any sharp objects that could be used to cut the skin. According to the National Mental Health Association, self-harm – also termed self-mutilation, self-injury or self-abuse – is defined as the "deliberate, repetitive, impulsive, non-lethal harming of one's self. It includes: 1) cutting, 2) scratching, 3) picking scabs or interfering with wound healing, 4) burning, 5) punching self or objects, 6) infecting oneself, 7) inserting objects in body openings, 8)bruising or breaking bones, 9) some forms of hair-pulling, as well as other various forms of bodily harm. These behaviors, which pose serious risks, may by symptoms of a mental health problem that can be treated."

Great. Really great. Not only do they offer no way to help these people, but they are encouraging it. That's just dandy. Maybe for those who are intent on killing themselves, perhaps we should offer clinics for that to so that, if they fail, they won't have to suffer.

Can You Say "Hypocrisy?"

You know, there's a delicious irony in all this. I'm sure that you have heard of the riots that were sparked over the Danish political cartooon, the one that offended all of those dainty little Muslims? Oh no! Embassies burning, flags torched, riots in the streets. The humanity. Glorious, isn't it?

I don't know about you, but some things just piss me off. This is more of a (see above) delicious irony that both irritates me and makes me laugh. I guess I'm just a cynical individual, but the fact that these Muslims are in the streets burning things and people left and right over some retarded cartoons is quite despicable, not to mention hypocritical.

Here's something: Does anyone remember about all of those Christians they have killed? Christianity is outlawed in many Muslims countries. Christians killed up and down the highways and they have the gall to flip out over an *gasp* offensive cartoon? Where do they get this kind attitude wedged in their minds that they can riot over a piece of paper, but they revel in the blood and deaths of their enemies and Christians?

I know this is not the attitude of a lot of Muslims, so to those who are discusted by the riots, I applaud you. I'm not for making fun of anyone's religion, but to think that allowing these Muslims to riot like this and think its justified is one of the dumbest things said when thousands of Christians have been slaughtered brutally over the years. When it comes to mockery of religion, I'm for those who are mocked, not for those who riot and kill because of the mockery.
