There's much change, but little hope

  • Follow Letters

Although he was truthful about being the most pro-death presidential candidate in history, Barack Obama already has surpassed Bill Clinton's record of lies.

Belatedly, many of his supporters, black and white, now realize that they should have waited for a black American citizen of good moral character with a solid sense of history to run for president -- one who believes in and would preserve the family (marriage of one man and one woman), our traditions, private property rights and the sanctity of life. These are essential pillars of a civilized free society.

Ideology is not about race. Everyone should regularly read the columns by black writers such as Star Parker, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, who genuinely love America and who believe that sound ideology chooses good vs. evil; natural law vs. moral relativism; freedom vs. slavery, a.k.a. free-market capitalism vs. fascism, socialism and Marxism; national survival and sovereignty vs. globalism and one-world government. America is being systematically and ruthlessly destroyed by Emperor Obama and his Ivy League accomplices.

Obama's promotion of class envy and hatred, a la Bill Ayers, to advance his totalitarian quest is shameful. I agree with the criticism of excessive spending under George W. Bush and his opening of the bailout door, but Obama's reckless spending and borrowing -- essentially printing devalued dollars -- will cause inflation more disastrous than Jimmy Carter's. Unless you missed Economics 101, you know that inflation is the cruelest, most regressive "tax" that disproportionately injures the poor.

Will our people, like those in Germany who were mesmerized by the silver-tongued Adolf Hitler, continue to march like lemmings in slavish, adoring lockstep while our Constitution, economy and personal liberty are thrown into the oven? Or will they seek constructive change and restore real hope by tossing Obama and his comrades out in 2010 and 2012?

InChristLove, women can be

InChristLove, women can be misogynists just as men can be misandrists. Genitalia has nothing to do with it. Phyllis Schlafly is a woman and she is one of the biggest misogynists in America.

And Abdullah, hate to break

And Abdullah, hate to break it to ya, but Bush had the highest unemployment since 1982 -- just before he left office. Had it not been for the Bush tax cuts, unemployment under Obama would have been much lower than it is, but not nearly as low as it was in Clinton's last year.

Hate to break it to you,

Hate to break it to you, willistontownsc (what kind of name is that) but business ups and downs cycle without the influence of the POTUS. The tax cuts worked. The failure of the Democratic party to allow the regulation of Fannie and Freddie didn't. Have you ever bothered to listen to Maxine defend Raines, who is now under investigation. Now if he had been doing such a bang up job, why the collapse and why the criminal investigation of him?

Here's the difference between

Here's the difference between embryos and humans. Embryos can be frozen and then defrosted. Can you freeze a soul? Can you freeze a person? Can you defrost a soul? Do you know of any human that can be defrosted? The Catholic Church's position has not kept up with medical technology. But I don't see the antiabortionists screaming on here about IVF.

"And in my opinion, if women

"And in my opinion, if women were made to take more responsiblity then there would be less unwanted pregnancies, which means less unwanted children, which means less need for abortion." ICL, why don't you think the MEN that conceive these children don't take more responsibility? If MEN were made to take more responsiblity then there would be less unwanted pregnancies, which means less unwanted children, which means less need for abortion. ---- See how that works? Don't you see that it's not just a woman's problem? It's BOTH people's responsibility.

Willistontownsc...ever heard

Willistontownsc...ever heard of dilation and extraction? Those babies could be born alive. I knew you wouldn't answer the question because you would insist that the child be killed. You don't want to just terminate pregnancy, you want to terminate responsibility for actions. There are MANY methods to remove a fetus without killing it.....Italy just passed such a law, and it exposes hypocrites like willistontownsc every day.

D&E still wouldn't save one

D&E still wouldn't save one or the other from POTENTIALLY life-threatening injuries, Abdullah. And for the record, the Italian law violates human rights. Put down the misogynist right wing nonsense for once and read a REAL medical book that you see in the ACOG offices. Maybe you'll learn something. This is not about terminating responsibilities, this is about keeping the government out of women's lives.

Which means that you, Abdullah, or any other conservative on here can NEVER again claim to be for less government in our lives. You are all for MORE GOVERNMENT in our lives. Just be truthful about that for once.

Protecting the life of children from pedogynists such as you is NOT a violation of human rights. Just ANSWER the QUESTION that I asked....or do you fear exposing your hypocrisy?

How can YOU willistontownsc,

How can YOU willistontownsc, defend Obama, and CLAIM to be for less government? And please explain how tax cuts, for the first time in the history of Earth, caused an increase in unemployment. Good luck with that.

First of all, they are NOT

First of all, they are NOT children -- they are feti (meaning that they cannot survive without air). And scientists have been hard at work trying to do as you say Italy has done, but with little to success thus far. And as someone on the Curvature said, "protecting the life of a living breathing person (the woman) is far more important the the imaginary babies in your head". So true. That why it is my obligation to protect women from misogynists like you and the other Taliban GOPers.

Because LIBERALS are for LESS

Because LIBERALS are for LESS GOVERNMENT in our lives -- this has been proven over and over again. That's how. And the tax cuts did cause unemployment to spike -- in the 1980s and again now.

Calling names will not help

Calling names will not help your point. Answer the question. If the fetus could be removed without harm to the fetus or the mother (which IS possible) would you be opposed to making it mandatory, or do you insist on killing the fetus? I'm not letting you off the hook of answering the question. You have tried to dodge it every time you address it.

I would be OPPOSED because it

I would be OPPOSED because it is a personal rights issue, as I answered nearly three hours ago. Now answer my question. Would you make it mandatory for women to have tubal ligations in light of the Nadya Suleman saga? And would you make it mandatory for men to have vasectomies? Because you are so ACTIVELY advocating stripping women of their reproductive rights -- there is NO WAY around it.

I don't advocate sterilizing

I don't advocate sterilizing ANYONE. I'm glad you have revealed that you are NOT in favor of just the womans right to terminate a pregnancy, but her "right" to end any responsibility by killing the child. You are a repulsive person, and incredibly easy to debate with. I enjoyed it. Good night all.

Women's right to reproduce

Women's right to reproduce DOES NOT end when she is pregnant, no matter if she is just 10 days or 210 days along.

Like I said before, I'll say it again: if women can lose their rights, then men should be forced to have a vasectomy. That is the underlying issue here.

Corgimom, it's kind of inbred

Corgimom, it's kind of inbred in males. Except for a few species, like doves, they don't feel all that much obligation. A lot of male homo sapiens have evolved to the point that they do understand what fatherhood is all about. Way too many still have not. And our government rules enable them in that behavior. "We ain't gonna punish the child and the mother because the sorry father took a hike." The sorry father took the hike because he knew that was coming. The sorry mother got pregnant because she knew she would be taken care of. She will most likely do it again. And the stupid taxpayers keep enabling this behavior with their lack of objection.

You learned a new word, and

You learned a new word, and love to show it off....all caps and everything. You really shouldn't debate here. It shows how ignorant you can be. Now EXPLAIN HOW tax cuts caused unemployment to go up.....don't just say it's so.....explain the economics of it. A child's right to live doesn't end just because the mother doesn't want the responsibility either.
