Civil rights questions: How can a President who passed a law mandating that all Americans have valid health insurance cards or be fined also believe the Arizona immigration law asking suspected illegal immigrants for their papers is "misguided" ? Do illegals now have more rights than American citizens in the President's eyes ?
Gentlemen, start your engines: Evolutionists believe life on earth started with the spontaneous conversion of inanimate matter to animate matter (they call it the "primordial soup." I call it the movie Frankenstein, which was never been duplicated in any laboratory). How do these folks have the nerve to dismiss a higher power that many call God ? Is the higher power argument somehow less believable than the evolutionists Shazaam! belief ?
Subjugation as the new feminism: The United Nations has selected Iran to a commission on women's rights. The commission is “dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women," according to it's website. Women in Iran have been struggling for basic human rights, and have made some progress, but Iran is a country where stoning is still the law, where lashings are given to women for "improper dress," and where female civil rights protesters are arrested, beaten, raped, and tortured. Assigning Iran to a women's rights commission is like assigning the Ku Klux Klan to a commission on racism. Of course, this is the crazy UN, which also put China and Saudi Arabia on it's Human Rights Commission. Here's my question - in light of this move, shouldn't the UN also find some Neo-Nazi group to resolve the Israel-Palestine issue ? This does partially explain why so many think Jon Stewart's Daily Show on Comedy Central is the real political news. It's hard to distinguish political reality from comedy these days, even though there's not much funny about the reality.
Speaking of comedy: President Obama did his brand of standup at the recent White House Correspondent's Dinner. Never one to miss a chance at gaining a partisan edge of any kind, the President took direct aim at one of his presumed presidential contenders in 2012. Here's Barack "Shecky" Obama:
“Speaking of undeserved honors, a few weeks ago, I was able to throw out the first pitch at the Nationals game….It was high and wide. FOX News reported it as the president pandering to the left wing, while MSNBC declared: “President pitches a no-hitter.”…
Of course, that’s not the only thing we’ve been accused of socialiizing this year. You might have heard we passed a healthcare bill… Some Republicans have claimed the bill includes a few secret provisions. That’s ridiculous. There aren’t a few secret provisions in the healthcare bill, there are like hundreds….such as The Bay State denial: This bill shall cover short-term memory loss with regard to healthcare reform. So good news Mitt, your condition is covered."
Pretty funny, but it does lead to an important question. How is Mitt Romney going to overcome the mandated health care reform he instituted in Massachusetts to secure the 2012 GOP nomination ? Romney has repeatedly said he is against ObamaCare, but his own record flies in the face of that. Romney won't be the first politician to run on an 'I was for it before I was against it' platform, of course. John Kerry got the 2004 Democratic nomination with that schlock, but remember, Kerry LOST the general election. The next question is, if Romney isn't going to be the 2012 nominee, who will be ? Huckabee ? Gingrich ? Pawlenty ? Palin ?.....I just can't see it.
