News Swamp

There is much in the news lately and so little time to write about it, so I'll do a single Rapid-fire post that covers my thoughts on some key news threads.

The liberals have made the assertion that Saddam Housein had no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We know for a fact that he had some at some point. The mass graves and Kurdish ghost towns are evidence of it. One reason the liberals have made this assertion is not because they are against the war as much as they are against George Bush. Prior to Bush making the move to liberate Iraq, liberal politicians including Bill Clinton, John Kerry and Ted Kennedy made the case for weapons of mass destruction there. It was one reason among many for taking Saddam to task for his destructive regime. Now we have the tapes of him discussing the weapons of mass destruction as well as another of his top officials revealing that he sent tem to Syria so the coalition forces wouldn’t discover them.

I wrote earlier about how Oprah excluded homeschoolers from her essay contest. Now, after the deadline for the contest, she finally acknowledges homeschoolers.

Wal-Mart has been in the news for refusing to stock the morning-after pill in Massachusetts. It seems like the anti-lifers have won the battle for now. Wal-Mart has been faced with litigation in order to force them to stock it. In other words, one can’t run a private pharmacy in Massachusetts without being forced to help women kill their children. I’d overprice it.

Speaking of killing babies, Krishna Rajanna, an abortionist in Kansas City, has been eating his victims. They didn’t arrest him because apparently there’s no law against it. However, they raided his abortion clinic due to his lack of ability to keep it sanitary enough to kill the babies.

If it’s okay to raid a clinic on account of poor sanitary conditions where half the patients are supposed to die, then fast-food restaurants should be raided as well. A seventh grader in Tampa, Florida, has discovered that the ice in fast food restaurants is dirtier than the water in the restaurants’ toilets. Can I have that soda without ice, please?

Also, if an abortion clinic has to be clean, then the logic is that we should help people who want to harm themselves by providing them with sterile knives. The logic is the same. The Royal College of Nursing in Britain is advocating this. I suppose that this will decrease the amount of people who cut themselves as much as Roe vs. Wade decreased the amount of abortions.

One last item on abortion. Margaret Sanger, a contemporary of and sympathizer with Hitler, who also founded Planned Parenthood, explicitly intended abortion to reduce the number of such as Jews, blacks and southern Europeans by introducing abortion. In Australia, it is having the reverse affect. Apparently, due to abortion, the population of Australians of European ancestry is decreasing by 100,000 per year. One Muslim leader has done the math and arrived at the conclusion that at this rate, in 50 years there will be more Muslims in Australia than whites.

In Christian news, the Italian atheist who was suing the Roman Catholic priest for lying about Jesus lost his case. The judge threw it out. The man is planning to take it to a higher court. One day he won’t be able to appeal to a higher court. On the flip side, the Air Force Chaplain who can’t pray in Jesus’ name has had an empty victory. Now, he still can’t pray in Jesus name, but he’s not required to pray at all. Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family likes the new ruling. I just want to know: if you can’t pray to a specific God, what’s the point of praying?

In other news, Dr. Dobson and other relatively conservative Christians with high-visibility ministries are under attack. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force “is blaming a deranged teenager's violent rampage through a ‘gay’ bar in Massachusetts on ‘hatred and loathing’ fueled by Christian groups and leaders such as James Dobson.” I’ve heard these Christian’s and their messages and haven’t once heard them advocate violence against unrepentant sinners. In fact, the opposite is true. They typically advocate befriending them for the purpose of working through a friendly relationship to witness to them. I want to know where the outrage is against the Swedish imam and other imams like him who clearly advocate that Muslims rise up against non-Muslims and kill them.

I’m not a big sports fan. I didn’t even watch the Superbowl. Apparently, I’m in good company. The family of Seattle Seahawks Head Coach, Mike Holmgren, went to Africa on a mission trip instead of staying around to watch their husband and father lead his team in one of the greatest annual sporting events in the US. God bless ‘em.

And if you were expecting something on Dick Cheney's hunting accident, all I can say is that it's not newsworthy. If you happen to be hearing much about it from many news sources, they're obviously upset that the newspaper local to the incident was allowed to scoop them on it. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
