The Somber Occasion of An Abortion

My friend, Jubila, and I were having our daily debate about how smart we are as compared to the people with whom we disagree.  Generally speaking my friend and I are thought of as liberals so it should not surprise anyone that we think highly of ourselves.  Oh if life were so easy.  It is […]

Creepy Ad by drawtheline.org

My first take on this ad was that it was produced by some anti-abortion provocateur to discredit the celebration of 40 years since Roe V. Wade. This smooth talking black guy is offering a rose and a glass of wine as a toast to the judicial victory. I interpreted an image of Obama – clearly […]

The Army of God, Scott Roeder, and the Right Side of History

Scott Roeder shot and killed late term abortion Doctor George Tiller May, 31, 2009.  No one disputes this fact.  Roeder proudly admitted to the shooting while on trial for murder in Kansas.    Roeder was convicted of murder by a jury of his peers.  Peers, in this case, means twelve people who lived in the county […]

Christian Sponsored Terrorism

The Associated Press has composed a list of recent abortion-related violence.  As an aside, we find their headline rather ironic – because it suggests the violence is a result of abortion.  But more important than the headline are the facts of fundamentalist Christian violence (we prefer to call this behavior Christian Terrorism). We have written […]

Abortion and Common Sense

Abortion is not black or white, liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican.  Abortion is a problem of humanity – and this era of Abortion in American will be studied by future historians.  The folks looking back will recognize the futile and selfish partisan bickering that prolonged the agony of a health care disaster.  Both fanatical […]

A Conflict of Ethics

All of us have ethics. We may not think consciously about them – but we have them. Sometimes these ethics are in conflict with each other – when that happens we find Hamlet, struggling with self doubt, pondering, “To be or not to be?” Ethics do not follow a smooth continuum of linear progression, with […]

The Right to Privacy – The 9th Amendment – Gay Marriage

Our Founding Fathers were masters of compromise.  Some wanted specific rights established in the form of a Bill of Rights.  Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Assembly, Freedom from search and seizure, Freedom to bear arms, Freedom of speech, we become redundant – suffice it to say that some rights were considered so important that […]

Tell Me I Am Not Conservative

Yikes – someone called me a conservative, how disgusting.  I said something about living within our means and the guy in the checkout line at Wal Mart called me a conservative – as if there was something wrong with me.  He was buying some tabloid magazines – I don’t know if that means he is […]

I Am A Pregnant Teen

It was difficult for me to sleep last night. I was checking the statistics on our magazine yesterday. The  statistics page gives us two views of where our readers came from.  ‘Referrers’ lists the other sites that reference our site.  ‘Search Engine Terms’ is a list of the key words individuals used to search the […]

Conservatives support Romney – Go Figure

Son, Mitt Romney is the guy who has changed most of his political positions to run for President.  Conservative, by definition, does not like change – Go Figure! He did not like Ronald Reagan.  He supported a woman’s right to choose.  He raised taxes.  He supported State sponsored health care.  He shot a rabbit one […]

Christ, or Anti-Christ

Son, Take a look at the State of the World. Look at the role of religion in world events. Look at the disparity of faiths represented by the candidates for President of the United States. Who or what is running this show? The term, Anti- Christ, is mentioned in the Bible very briefly. I think […]

Resolutions 2008 – WWJD

Son, Faith is expounded by all candidates.  Hey – the evangelicals have done a good job in politics.  They have swayed elections.  They have gained power.  They influence the national debate. I just wrote a post on Mike Huckabee.  He is that one guy who is a Christian Minister who is running for President.  I […]

The politics of admitting mistakes

Son, Several candidates for President have long histories.  Many of them have run for other offices like Senator, or Governor, or Mayor.  In the process of seeking those offices they necessarily catered to the limited population of their respective ambitions.  Romney and Giuliani were pro-choice.  Giuliani has been married three times.  Huckabee raised taxes.  Clinton […]

Blunt Abortion

The Governor of Missouri is Matt Blunt, son of a Missouri Congressman of a similarly appropriate name. The headline in today’s paper is “Blunt task force examining abortion affects on women.” How appropriate. This is a good article – good because it slants in my direction. Apparently Governor Blunt has formed a task force of […]

Abortion – conflicting messages

Son, I just saw President Bush on TV stating that he believes, “…health care should be private because medical decisions should be between the patient and their doctor…” Whoa – Where did I hear that before? I don’t think the President was aware of what he was saying. President Bush just presented the fundamental argument […]
