Posts Tagged ‘Abortion’

As Christians around the world prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas, the United States government continues to battle abortion as part of the health care reform battle.

The way abortions are covered under health care reform is a major obstacle to finalizing the legislation, even though the House and Senate both agree that no federal money should be used.  The stumbling block is whether insurance plans that get federal money are completely barred from covering abortions, or whether they can cover it as long as they require customers to write separate checks for the procedure using their own money. …Abortions in the first trimester typically cost between $350 and $900, according to Planned Parenthood. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20091223/D9CP9T4O0.html.

Arguing over the sanctity of life at Christmas is asinine.  Go home already, and start over in the New Year. 

At 7:16 a.m., the Senate passed on a 60-39 party line vote a sweeping health care bill that will tighten insurance regulations, provide insurance for 31 million more Americans and cost $871 billion over the next decade. “This is for my friend Ted Kennedy, aye,” said Sen. Robert Byrd as he cast his vote.  Clearly exhausted, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid mistakenly voted no before changing his vote to yes, which got a laugh in the chamber, especially from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. via http://www.politico.com/livepulse/1209/BREAKING__Senate_passes_health_bill_.html

The Catholic bishops fired off another letter to the U.S. Senate last night urging opposition to the Democratic healthcare bill poised to pass tomorrow. Despite abortion funding restrictions that have provoked the ire of the leading abortion-rights groups, the bishops say the Senate bill still allows federal funding of abortion coverage and make clear they’ll accept nothing less than the House healthcare bill’s sweeping ban on federal abortion funding. via http://www.usnews.com/blogs/god-and-country/2009/12/23/catholic-bishops-still-opposed-to-senate-health-reform-bill.html

Only God knows what these buffoons will come up with behind closed doors with claims of transparency.  In a pork filled bill, shame on everyone of them who basically were bribed with federal money for their state as a means of convincing them to vote for this bill.  There is a investigation for everything else, let someone please investigate exactly who and which states will directly benefit.  Lumps of coal for them all from Santa. 

Even the military has a problem with pregnancy. “Facing criticism over his order banning pregnancies for those in his command in Iraq, a U.S. general has backed off, slightly. While there are still reprimands issued for those violating the order, it does not appear there will be any courts-martial involved. http://www.huliq.com/3257/89902/us-general-defends-iraq-no-pregnancy-order .  Trillions in debt, 4200 dead soldiers 31000 wounded in Iraq, throw in Afghanistan and it just makes you sick.

Her hair was up in a pony tail, her favorite dress tied with a bow. Today was Daddy’s Day at school, and she couldn’t wait to go. But her mommy tried to tell her, that she probably should stay home Why the kids might not understand, if she went to school alone. But she was not afraid; she knew just what to say. What to tell her classmates of why he wasn’t there today. But still her mother worried, for her to face this day alone. And that was why once again, she tried to keep her daughter home… But the little girl went to school eager to tell them all. About a dad she never sees a dad who never calls. There were daddies along the wall in back, for everyone to meet. Children squirming impatiently, anxious in their seats One by one the teacher called a student from the class. To introduce their daddy, as seconds slowly passed. At last the teacher called her name, every child turned to stare. Each of them was searching, a man who wasn’t there. ‘Where’s her daddy at?’ She heard a boy call out. ‘She probably doesn’t have one,’ another student dared to shout. And from somewhere near the back, she heard a daddy say, ‘Looks like another deadbeat dad, too busy to waste his day.’ The words did not offend her, as she smiled up at her Mom. And looked back at her teacher, who told her to go on. And with hands behind her back, slowly she began to speak. And out from the mouth of a child, came words incredibly unique. ‘My Daddy couldn’t be here, because he lives so far away. But I know he wishes he could be, since this is such a special day. And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know. All about my daddy, and how much he loves me so. He loved to tell me stories he taught me to ride my bike. He surprised me with pink roses, and taught me to fly a kite. We used to share fudge sundaes, and ice cream in a cone. And though you cannot see him. I’m not standing here alone. ‘Cause my daddy’s always with me, even though we are apart I know because he told me, he’ll forever be in my heart.’ With that, her little hand reached up, and lay across her chest. Feeling her own heartbeat, beneath her favorite dress. And from somewhere there in the crowd of dads, her mother stood in tears. Proudly watching her daughter, who was wise beyond her years. For she stood up for the love of a man not in her life. Doing what was best for her, doing what was right. And when she dropped her hand back down, staring straight into the crowd. She finished with a voice so soft, but its message clear and loud. ‘I love my daddy very much, he’s my shining star. And if he could, he’d be here, but heaven’s just too far. You see he is a Marine and died just this past year When a roadside bomb hit his convoy and taught Americans to fear. But sometimes when I close my eyes, it’s like he never went away’ And then she closed her eyes, and saw him there that day. And to her mother’s amazement, she witnessed with surprise. A room full of daddies and children, all starting to close their eyes. Who knows what they saw before them, who knows what they felt inside. Perhaps for merely a second, they saw him at her side. ‘I know you’re with me Daddy,’ to the silence she called out. And what happened next made believers, of those once filled with doubt. Not one in that room could explain it, for each of their eyes had been closed. But there on the desk beside her, was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose. And a child was blessed, if only for a moment, by the love of her shining star. And given the gift of believing, that heaven is never too far. —Author unknown

Debates go on, the debt gets higher, soldiers are dying, people are starving, there are few jobs to be held, and many in America have no insurance.  Time to change the channel from C-Span and tune in to God.  In a Vatican first, Pope Benedict XVI will celebrate Christmas midnight mass two hours early, at 10:00 pm (1900 GMT) on Thursday. The Vatican is blaming it on his advanced age of 82, so he can get to bed a little earlier before the  Urbi et Orbi blessing, Christmas Day Mass.  You can watch it on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/vatican

Notre%20Dame%20Scandal%20Cartoon

President Barack Hussein Obama will deliver the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., today.   Among outrage and protests, the Catholic university will also bestow upon him a Doctor of Laws honorary degree.  President Obama has made clear he stands against what most Catholics believe in- obfuscating everything from traditional marriage to abortion. 

The Catholic Bishops summed it up pretty clearly, “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”  http://www.usccb.org/bishops/catholicsinpoliticallife.shtml  So much for playing by the rules!

The Text of Obama’s Honorary Doctorate: “At the 164th Commencement The May Exercises The University of Notre Dame Confers the degree of
Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, on the 44th president of the United States, whose historic election opened a new era of hope in a country long divided by its history of slavery and racism. A community organizer who honed his advocacy for the poor, the marginalized and the worker in the streets of Chicago, he now organizes a larger community, bringing to the world stage a renewed American dedication to diplomacy and dialogue with all nations and religions committed to human rights and the global common good. Through his willingness to engage with those who disagree with him and encourage people of faith to bring their beliefs to the public debate, he is inspiring this nation to heal its divisions of religion, culture, race and politics in the audacious hope for a brighter tomorrow. On Barack H. Obama, Washington, District of Columbia” sourced at- http://www.stopobamanotredame.com/ 

Pardon me while I vomit.  “…heal it’s division of religion…”? ND  is a Roman Catholic School, a religious school, there is no decisiveness, no division, and the sanctity of life is paramount at Notre Dame and for Catholics.  Surely Catholics have abortions, but celebrating a man who once called pregnancy a mistake out of wedlock is just misguided in so many ways. 

I can’t wait to hear his speech and wonder if at the end he will say, “God Bless America?”  Should the TelePrompter fail perhaps he will have slip of the tongue and say “God Damn America,” after listening to Rev Wright’s sermons for so many years. 

Touchdown Jesus, must certainly be crying on this day.  For us football fans pray too that we see a season of successful Hail Mary’s on and off the field.

Blah, blah, blah,  the attitude of the African melody “Kum Ba Ya,”  where the lyrics say someone is crying, singing and praying couldn’t be more true. It is the hearts of the religious faithful that are becoming more dismissive of both The Pope and Obama. The translation of “Kum Ba Ya” means come by here, but more and more we see people turning from God and religion.  We have until the election of 2012 to see people turn from Obama, but it’s already begun. 

The latest findings of the American Religious Identification Survey find that 34 million adult Americans — that’s almost one in five of us — are now non-religious. http://onmilwaukee.com/politics/articles/hissom032009.html?18510 In a Rasmussen survey, at this time in a first term, Obama has the lowest approval and highest disapproval rating ever recorded. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll  Gee, I wonder why with so many threats to our constitution from proposed gun rights laws to the fact that he has refused to prove his natural born citizenship status his ratings are plummeting?

The UN is attempting to negotiate anti-blasphemy” language and references to Israel widely seen as anti-Semitic at its conference on racism, “Durban II” in Geneva where numerous countries have chosen to pull out of attendance.  The document mentions only Christians, Jews, and Muslims as potential victims of “phobias,” and the IHEU’s briefing paper asks delegates to either remove any names of specific groups, or if not, to add “Atheists, unbelievers and apostates” to the list.  http://www.examiner.com/x-4275-DC-Secularism-Examiner~y2009m3d22-Diplomats-dump-defamation-of-religion-language-from-UN-racism-conference-Good-enough Anyone who thinks phobias are the real reason to to attend this conference ought to be buying at Timothy Geithner’s assist auctions.  It is all about hate, plain and simple.

Barack-star Obama who has proclaimed himself Islamic and Christian, intends to sign on to a United Nations Declaration calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality around the world.  “…echoing the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights,” affirms that “human rights apply equally to every human being regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.” http://www.examiner.com/x-4275-DC-Secularism-Examiner~y2009m3d22-Diplomats-dump-defamation-of-religion-language-from-UN-racism-conference-Good-enough That all sounds well and good until one backs up, and realizes that you would have to be born to receive these inalienable rights.  Obama has made it obvious that he is pro-abortion and has little respect for the unborn, contrary to the Catholic Church and many Conservatives. 

$2.4 Billion dollars is going to be made available for U.S. based development of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles from the Obama administration.  http://www.lowimpactliving.com/blog/2009/03/22/president-obama-announces-24-billion-in-funding-for-electric-vehicles/  At the same time  Obama’s proposed 2010 federal budget contains a 7% cut in charitable tax deductions.  Houses of worship are among the list of casualties of the mortgage crisis and donations to the church are going to plummet at the very time so many need help both spiritually and financially. 

The Pope is speaking in Africa, understandably in opposition to the use of condoms to stop the spread of AIDS.  While it is unrealistic and dangerous, it is within the church’s teachings to promote sex in the sanctity of marriage.   Surely The Pope realize over 25 million people have AIDS and are born with it, but he has not wavered in the church teachings.    Obama at the other end of the spectrum almost signed Nancy Pelosi’s bailout bullshit provision that would have paid for condoms and abortions with our tax dollars.

Obama is going to address the graduates of Notre Dame University at commencement.  The preeminent Catholic university in America will bestow upon him an honorary degree when he stands against what most Catholics believe, obfuscating everything from traditional marriage to abortion.   “It is an outrage and a scandal that “Our Lady’s University,” one of the premier Catholic universities in the United States, would bestow such an honor on President Obama given his clear support for policies and laws that directly contradict fundamental Catholic teachings on life and marriage. This nation has many thousands of accomplished leaders in the Catholic Church, in business, in law, in education, in politics, in medicine, in social services, and in many other fields who would be far more appropriate choices to receive such an honor from the University of Notre Dame.  Instead Notre Dame has chosen prestige over principles, popularity over morality. Whatever may be President Obama’s admirable qualities, this honor comes on the heels of some of the most anti-life actions of any American president, including expanding federal funding for abortions and inviting taxpayer-funded research on stem cells from human embryos.’ http://notredamescandal.com/ at The Cardinal Newman Center at Notre Dame.

Students had this to say in a letter to Pres., Fr. Jenkins, “the University should also use Pres. Obama’s visit as an opportunity to reiterate its commitment to the teachings of the Church and the sanctity of life. We ask that you consider making a public statement, if not at the Commencement exercises themselves then in a highly visible public forum, distancing yourself and the University from his views, making it clear that the University disagrees in no uncertain terms with his views on the unborn, which stand in contrast to that of the Church’s stance of protecting the most defenseless and voiceless among us. Awarding him an honorary degree without making clear that the University disapproves of his stance on issues regarding the sanctity of human life would be a disrespect to those students who, like ourselves, chose to attend this University based not only on its status as one of the country’s premier institutions of higher learning, but a school that takes pride in its Catholic foundation and identity. ”  http://www.nd.edu/~pbrown6/ObamaVisitLetter.html

The Catholic Bishops summed it up pretty clearly, “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”  http://www.usccb.org/bishops/catholicsinpoliticallife.shtml

More than 15,000 people have signed a petition calling for the university to rescind it’s offer to Obama.  http://notredamescandal.com/  Check out http://squarewondotorg.wordpress.com/2009/03/22/a-most-disgusting-and-shameful-action-by-notre-dame/ for further discussion and a list of great blogs agains Obama speaking at ND.

His appearance and religious stance only reflects on his seething ability to manipulate and prophetize one thing, the cult and religion of Obama. 

God Bless America.

Post update 03-24-09 From The Huffington Post.  The Roman Catholic bishop whose diocese includes the University of Notre Dame says he will boycott President Barack Obama’s May 17 commencement speech at the Catholic school because of Obama’s support for abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research.  Bishop John D’Arcy is the head of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend.

I am beginning to think that the government is currently conducting subversive population control on women and vagina’s, and its leader may be Nancy Pelosi.  The latest stimulus plan sells itself on a clean bill of health in the best interest for all, but dirty little secrets and political motivations are slipping through the crack. [pardon the pun]

I read that the bidding recently topped $3.5 million in an auction for a virgin. http://www.salon.com/mwt/broadsheet/2009/01/23/virginity_auction/index.html  I can just see her tax reporting on this.  Is it a goods or a service tax?   This $3.5 million is just a drop in the bucket as to the real worth of  woman’s vagina’s on Capital Hill and in the marketplace. 

The health and drug industry has a huge investments in Washington with lobbying groups resulting favorable laws coming down Capitol Hill and and into woman’s bodies, let alone the billions in profits. Contribution trends are into the millions.   http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/indus.php?Ind=H04v  In 2005, it was estimated that $2.7 billion dollars was spent on female personal hygiene alone.  http://www.mindbranch.com/listing/product/R567-440.html  That is a lot of  buying power in the economy! 

The vagina  is also apparently, a huge drain on our economy.  Maybe it is only the financially poor vagina’s though as just yesterday, on ABC This Week, Sunday Morning, Nancy Pelosi defended the move to add birth control funding to the latest economic stimulus package saying, “Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.”  video link at http://www.breitbart.tv/?p=266063.  

Family planning services sounds like Planned Parenthood- the leader in providing abortions to poor and economically disadvantaged woman.   Who is going to provide all these free birth control pills? Why your and my tax dollars of course.  Want to bet the Pill manufacturers were doing the happy dance when they heard the news. 

The free prevention of birth assumes that it is the governments job to raise, feed and educate the children, not the responsibility of the parent.  If the government doesn’t have to support them in the first place, we all save money in the long run, right?  Less food stamps, less housing, etc.  Democrats want to prove that its better to stop life by funding it on the taxpayers dime and President Obama certainly seems to support that.  On his 3rd day in office he rescinded the “Mexico City Policy” that indicates his commitment to increasing abortions not only domestically but around the world, all at tax dollar expense.  “Our hard-earned tax dollars will now be used by international abortionists to kill babies and fill their coffers with cash,” said Laffety of  The Traditional Values Coalition. http://www.traditionalvalues.org/modules.php?sid=3538   

Does this “actually open(s) the door to population control: “…there is no way advanced capitalism and rampant consumerism can deliver all the goods to all the people and “sustain” both the natural environment and the grossly inequitable distribution of wealth.”?  http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=358  Maybe population control is only for poor, predominately black people who use social services.  Where is the outrage from the black community?

To add further insult, Immigration Services announced that people who want to become legal permanent residents are required to get the  “cervical cancer” vaccine against the human papillomavirus (HPV)-.the sexually transmitted cervical-cancer virus.  Manufactured by Merck, the Gardasil vaccine is so new there is no knowledge of how those patients might be affected, it is also impossible to know how long their protective effects will last, how they might affect women’s natural defenses against other strains of HPV or future fertility.  http://www.naturalnews.com/025411.html  Could this vaccine be just a subversive method for population control?

Merck is helping  efforts to pass state laws requiring girls as young as 11 or 12 to receive Gardasil and has bankrolled advocacy groups like Women in Government who support an, ” increase funding for screening and vaccination programs to ensure access for women who are uninsured or under insured.”  http://www.womeningovernment.org/home/.  Merck could generate billions in sales if Gardasil – at $360 for the three-shot regimen – were made mandatory across the country. http://www.concordmonitor.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?  Date=20070131&Category=REPOSITORY&ArtNo=701310329&SectionCat=48HOURS&Template=printart  I wonder if Gardasil will be a part of the stimulus package next. 

In the medicalization of  sex, we see a million ads on TV for Viagra, but  barely any for making good choices in contraception and the prevention of unwanted pregnancy in the first place.   A Congressional Budget Office reported that Medicare spending on ED drugs would total $1.93 billion during the first 10 years of the new Medicare drug benefit, which began ’06.  http://www.kaisernetwork.org/daily_reports/rep_index.cfm?hint=3&DR_ID=30320 

http://www.americanscientist.org/bookshelf/pub/contraception-from-contraband-to-rx  says “The business of birth control has become vastly more complex, involving regulatory agencies, research scientists and physicians, as well as companies and customers,” sad-where is God in the family planning discussion?

I guess fair is fair in government funding.  You know we have to spread the wealth around while spreading legs.  If we’re going to pay for someone to get it up we might as well pay for someone to prevent a birth.  Putting aside religious convictions, I guess a prescription is cheaper than an abortion. 

“Here’s an idea, why not just teach abstinence, cut welfare, and not reward young kids for sexing it up and getting pregnant. Oh, that’s right, that would be controversial and might push religious beliefs, so Pelosi skates with more stupidity. ”  http://bungalowbillscw.blogspot.com/2009/01/sexing-up-economy-pelosi-twisted-views.html

Obama said, “The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.” What about Prop 8. Mr. President?  What about your pro- abortion stand Mr. President?  How’s that treating everyone equal?

Obama’s own words,  “I wouldn’t want my daughter punished with a child.”  Was the birth of  Malia and Sasha’s punishment? 

The March for Life  http://www.marchforlife.org/content/view/35/41/ will be on Jan. 21, 2009 at The National Mall, the same place filled on Inauguration Day with two million souls whose parents chose not to abort them.  A far cry from the inaugural turnout, thousands are expected to gather at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception for prayer on the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, Roe V. Wade.

President Barack Obama’s proposed Freedom of Choice Act, which would make it mandatory for hospitals and pharmacies and health care providers to furnish abortion and contraceptives makes this years March for Life even more attentive to anti abortionists.

Just when Obama thought he’d heard the last from President Bush, – The provider conscience legislation drafted at the last minute by the Bush administration’s Department of Health and Human Services allows pro-life health care workers to refuse to provide services, including filling a prescription for birth control.  http://hr.cch.com/news/employment/010509a.asp  The jockeying to it’s legality has just begun and Obama has already issued an immediate halt to any pending legislation that the previous administration had queued up for approval. 

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the public policy arm of the Catholic Church, http://www.usccb.org/prolife/ wrote a letter to President Obama stating they would ” oppose legislative and other measures to expand abortion” and “will work to retain essential, widely supported policies which show respect for unborn life, protect the conscience rights of health care providers and other Americans, and prevent government funding and promotion of abortion.” 

Cardinal George’s wrote in part:

In the last Congress, a Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) was introduced that would, if brought forward in the same form today, outlaw any “interference” in providing abortion at will. It would deprive the American people in all fifty states of the freedom they now have to enact modest restraints and regulations on the abortion industry. FOCA would coerce all Americans into subsidizing and promoting abortion with their tax dollars. It would counteract any and all sincere efforts by government and others of good will to reduce the number of abortions in our country.http://www.usccb.org/comm/archives/2008/08-174.shtml

Parental notification and informed consent precautions would be outlawed, so would laws banning procedures such as partial-birth abortion and any protection for infants born alive after a failed abortion. Abortion clinics would be deregulated. The Hyde Amendment restricting federal funding of abortions would be lifted and FOCA would certainly have deadly consequences for prenatal human life. 

There is no guessing game here as to what Obama proposes, and you and I are going to pay for it, one way or another.

solstice

Happy Solstice?  Why not?  There are Solstice Sunglasses http://www.solsticestores.com/ Solstice Residential Homes http://www.solsticecollection.com/homes.php, the awesome Pontiac Solstice Convertible Cars http://www.pontiac.com/solstice, even a new Celebrity Solstice cruise ship http://www.cruisesonly.com/ making use of the word. 

Solstice for most of us means the official start of Winter plunging us into darkness and cold, about December 21st.  One wouldn’t know it is still fall with a current Alberta Clipped inundating much of the States today, bringing with it snow and sub zero temperatures.  Winter Solstice 2008 starts Dec 21, 12:04 pm Universal Time and in various time zones:

EST: Dec 21, 7:04 am
CST: Dec 21, 6:04 am
MST: Dec 21, 5:04 am
PST: Dec 21, 4:04 am

You can get complete, exact sun and moon data for any day at http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneDay.php

Daylight is the shortest and thoughts of sugar plums dance in our heads with Christmas coming just a few days after.  Ah Christmas- the most apolitical correct thing to say is Merry Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Christ.  Can you imagine?

America’s history has revolved around a separation of church and state but those intertwined religious factions that have made America a better and sometimes more tolerant country.  Here you are free to believe or not.  The government doesn’t mandate any religion upon her people even though we commonly hear one nation under God- no one says what the God is, or if you have to believe in it.

So now at the holiest hours before Christmas, we have people jumping into the fray of anti religion, erecting signs like this one in Washington right next to Nativity Scenes and holiday decorations. Jeez, ya can’t even say Christmas decorations anymore.   Funny thing is, some one stoled the sign and upon it’s return, they added- Thou Shalt Not Steal, from The Ten Commandments.  Wednesday will see the addition of a “Festivus” pole next in the Capitol.  Festivus was made commonplace in the Seinfeld series. Not to be left out is Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights and a Jewish menorah is scheduled for display Dec. 18 . http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/57249.html

“The Freedom From Religion Foundation has displayed a similar sign in the Wisconsin Capitol for more than a decade, and has gotten used to this sort of response, said Annie Laurie Gaylor of Madison, Wis., a co-president. For the first few years, opponents of the anti-religious message there turned the sign to face the wall, removed it, and even showered it with acid, she said.” http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/6420ap_wa_capitol_holiday_displays.html

Even in celebrating Solstice, there are religious undertones.  So much for the atheist theory to keep religion at bay.  Besides the more famous Stonehenge,  there are megalithic structures throughout Europe that are oriented to the solstices and the equinoxes.  “The Roman Catholic Church gave more financial and social support to the study of astronomy for over six centuries, from the recovery of ancient learning during the late Middle Ages into the Enlightenment, than any other, and, probably, all other, institutions.” The Sun in the Church by J.L. Heilbron, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0674854330/nightkitchenA/

“Winter solstice was overlaid with Christmas, and the observance of Christmas spread throughout the globe. Along the way, we lost some of the deep connection of our celebrations to a fundamental seasonal, hemispheric event. Many people–of many beliefs–are looking to regain that connection now. I gain inspiration from the universality of the ancient idea–winter solstice celebrations aren’t just an invention of the ancient Europeans. ” http://www.candlegrove.com/solstice.html

Commentator Bill O’Reilly has pointed out that “Seattle now rivals San Francisco for secular-progressive nuttiness. The city fathers are allowing public nakedness in city parks and nude bike riding, and in Fremont, a Seattle suburb, they actually put up a statue honoring Vladimir Lenin, the father of communism.”  He goes on to say, ” a few nuts have a legal right to run down the Christmas tradition in the lobby of the Capitol building. At this point there is little left to say except this: Where are the wise men when you need them?” http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=29795&referer=sphere_related_content

Winter solstice celebrations have been  part of the cultural heritage of Native American Indians, Pakistanis, Tibetans, Chinese and people the world over.  What could be so hard about just keeping the spirit of magic, a promise of peace,  joy to the world, alive for just a few days of the year with out the fringe destroying hope for mankind? 

Today December 7, is the anniversary of the attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor.  Thousands lost there lives that day and through out the war.  I imagine the degree to which one believes in a God is exacerbated the one’s closeness to dying.  I believe God meant for us to celebrate the living with simple respect for one another and it seems so very disrespectful to have signs like this, desecrating another’s belief system and intrude on the celebrations. 

December 8th is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, marking the start of the holiday season in many Catholic countries. The Day celebrates the conception of Mary in the womb of her mother and that from her first moment of conception, she was filled with Grace by God. “Exactly nine months from now, on September 8, we will celebrate Mary’s birthday.”  http://www.fisheaters.com/customsadvent5.html 

In these politically charged times, where are all the pro-lifers to comment upon grace being given at birth?   Instead the atheists draw the attention of MSM failing to tie Obama’s abortion record or his associations with Reverend Wright who once professed “God Damn America,” to the season.

It is just all to convenient to choose to ignore the millions who have died in the name of God.  It is all to insulting to those of us who live with God not only on Christmas, but every day. 

God Bless America, even Obama.

Of all the brain washing crap we have been subject to, just in time for Christmas or should we be politically correct and say this holiday season, comes the children’s book, Why Mama Voted for Obama http://littledemocrats.net/Obama.html  http://www.amazon.com/Why-Mommy-Democrat-Jeremy-Zilber/dp/0978668804  http://news.aol.com/elections-blog/tag/Jeremy+Zilber/ 

“Why Mommy is a Democrat” also by Jeremy Zilber looks like an attempt to reach out to the two-year-old bloc. “Using plain and non-judgmental language,” the book’s Web site reads, “along with warm and whimsical illustrations, this colorful 28-page paperback depicts the Democratic principles of fairness, tolerance, peace, and concern for the well-being of others.” Of course, “Democratic candidates and party organizations” will receive part of the book’s profits.

These swipes at The Republican Party might go over the head of kids, but not parents and not over mine. 

If you love your mama, thank her for having you because Obama has promised to continue partial birth abortions so as not to ‘saddle anyone with a baby.’  He is an enemy to unborn children.  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/77500/barack_hussein_obama_jr_defends_partialbirth.html  There isn’t anything warm and fuzzy about that.

Laying further claim in brain washing, “we are already globalists-in-training and will be full-fledged ones in the not-too-distant future.” http://whitelocust.wordpress.com/2008/11/18/expatriation-in-situ-by-baron-bodissey/  Globalist, me?  No, I am an American and have documentation to prove it in any court of law in the U.S.A. Maybe Obama is in fact the ultimate Globalist in not only his genealogy but his ideals as well.  Our Constitution doesn’t allow for a Globalist as President only a qualified citizen at birth or natural born citizen.  I have little faith that Obama was born in Hawaii, the theory seems to be leaning toward Kenya, far across the globe giving him dual citizenship and making him ineligible and testing the Constitution in the process.  

On last month anniversary of The People’s Temple mass suicide, http://www.thoughtsaloud.com/2008/11/19/marxism-religion-and-kool-aid/ I  I am reminded of the power leaders have over followers and blind faith.  The Nation magazine reported at the time, “The temple was as much a left-wing political crusade as a church. Jones message of socialist redemption was so strong it lulled more than 900 people to “drink the kool-aid.” of stupidity.

Knowledge is power and it is becoming more apparent how such faith in the Obama kool-aid that the government is going to everything for you with a vision of change.  It seems that a new world order with promises of democratic principles, may be coming like it or not, with citizens looking to the Obama administration so solve all that ails them.  All the new faces we were promised with  “Change,” looks like the same ole, same ole with the Clinton and Daschle old school politicians of the world back in power.

Gone will be the day of working hard in America when there is no incentive to do so.   The influences on the youngest members of our society, our children should be mindful that working hard is the best road to success.  The idea that a child’s educational experience will be enhanced by a mandatory two year commitment to community service is a disservice to our youth- say nothing of the 40 year old crowd. 

All kool-aid has been removed from the pantry for the time being.  We will be serving melted snow that is abundant thanks to global climate change.  Snow contains no melamine or artificial ingredients, unless you count what the dog may add to it. 

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas.  This book will not be under our tree and Santa better not bring it either.
