Click Here For Why Terri Schiavo is pro-choice

WorldNetDaily: Why Terri Schiavo is pro-choice: "The primary person desiring Terri's state-sanctioned execution is her husband, Michael Schiavo. As hard as it may be to grasp, the adulterous wife-killer-to-be just might not have the clearest motives in the matter. And he is hoping that today the judges will finally withdraw all the temporary stays and allow his wife to be executed.

What a compassionate man he is! "

Home Burglaries � Invading Your Castle

Home Burglaries � Invading Your Castle: "The statistics for home burglaries are astonishing:

More than 6 million residential break-ins occur every year -- that is 1 every 10 seconds!

About half of all home burglaries are committed without force, through unlocked windows, patios and doors!

The average cost per break-in was approximately $1,500 (not including the costs of replacing any broken windows or doors)!

1 of every 10 homes will be burglarized this year in the United States -- will you be next?

So, what can you do to reduce your risk of having your home burglarized? Here are some superb ideas suggested by National Crime Prevention Council, Burglary Prevention Council, as well as law enforcement professionals:"

Click Here For Can liberalism survive? John Leo: Can liberalism survive? (3/7/05): "Worse, the cultural liberalism that emerged from the convulsions of the 1960s drove the liberal faith out of the mainstream. Its fundamental value is that society should have no fundamental values, except for a pervasive relativism that sees all values as equal. Part of the package was a militant secularism, pitched against religion, the chief source of fundamental values. Complaints about 'imposing' values were also popular then, aimed at teachers and parents who worked to socialize children.

Modern liberalism, says Harvard political philosopher Michael Sandel, has emptied the national narrative of its civic resources, putting religion outside the public square and creating a value-neutral 'procedural republic.' One of the old heroes of liberalism, John Dewey, said in 1897 that the practical problem of modern society is the maintenance of the spiritual values of civilization. Not much room in liberal thought for that now, or for what another liberal icon, Walter Lippmann, called the 'public philosophy.' The failure to perceive the importance of community has seriously wounded liberalism and undermined its core principles. So has the strong tendency to convert moral and social questions into issues of individual rights, usually constructed and then massaged by judges to place them beyond the reach of majorities and the normal democratic process."

WorldNetDaily: Progressing backward is not advancement: "Apparently this group for the advancement of colored people not only views being able to read and write on a commensurate grade level as optional for black youth, but offensive to expect such ability. Being unable to pass a test with the required 40 percent -- a test that gives the student multiple opportunities to retake and pass it -- is not an insult to those favoring the advancement of coloreds. In their jaundiced view, the test is corrupt.

What we observe from these and the encyclopedia of examples that could be cited is twofold: First, we observe the extent of the leadership's dementia, if these are the types of civil-rights threatening actions they oppose. The other is just how anti-advancement the group has become. "

WorldNetDaily: Some suggestions for the Harvard faculty: "Black history is unique. There is no other group whose ancestors were dragged here in chains and enslaved. What is it that we have in common with other groups who are labeled 'minority'?

'Minority,' of course, cannot be defined because it is a label that is purely political and used exclusively for politically motivated purposes. These purposes, through all sorts of attempts at special treatment, wind up producing the same dehumanization that we supposedly want to combat. "

Click Here For Sharpton a good fit for Democrats

WorldNetDaily: Sharpton a good fit for Democrats: "My particular concern is the destructive and wrong message that Sharpton delivered to all African-Americans in inner cities around our country who listened to his address. What did he tell them? That government doesn't care about your personal life, your moral life or how you conduct yourselves as citizens and as people. But it is the government's job to 'guarantee' that food is in your refrigerator.

This is exactly what a community that is being torn apart by AIDS, illegitimacy, abortion, crime and 50-percent school dropouts needed to hear. Particularly from someone who calls himself a minister. "

Click Here For King's message ignored in black community

WorldNetDaily: King's message ignored in black community: "The bitterness and violence that is so rooted today in many of our black communities shows that they have not gotten Dr. King's message. The statistics are clear that black families are, on average, in far worse shape today than they were in 1963 when Dr. King gave his famous speech. These statistics -- family breakdown, illegitimacy, abortion, crime -- are living testimony to the extent to which blacks chose the path of politics and political demagoguery rather than the path of faith, tradition and personal responsibility on which to build their lives after the Civil Rights Act was enacted. "

Click Here For Golden chance for NAACP

WorldNetDaily: Golden chance for NAACP: "The heads of local NAACP chapters that I meet are out of step with their national leaders and sound much more like local church pastors. Perhaps because these chapter heads live in close proximity to the troubled communities with which they work, they understand that the problems in black communities today reflect the challenges of the business of living and not the business of politics.

As John McWhorter of the Manhattan Institute has aptly put it, today racism is not the main problem of African Americans, but rather '... the mundane tasks of teaching those 'left behind' after the civil-rights victory how to succeed in a complex society.' "

WorldNetDaily: Did Ronald Reagan "torture" blacks?: "So, how did blacks fare under Ronald Reagan?
From the end of 1982 to 1989, black unemployment dropped 9 percentage points (from 20.4 percent to 11.4 percent), while white unemployment dropped by only 4 percentage points. Black household income went up 84 percent from 1980 to 1990, vs. a white household income increase of 68 percent. The number of black-owned businesses increased from 308,000 in 1982 to 424,000 in 1987, a 38 percent rise vs. a 14 percent increase in the total number of firms in the United States. Receipts by black-owned firms more than doubled, from $9.6 billion to $19.8 billion.

Sylvester at first offered an apology -- to Aunt Jemima. 'It is with a heavy heart that I apologize this morning to Aunt Jemima,' said Sylvester, for comparing a 'strong, independent black woman' like Aunt Jemima to a 'self-serving hack politician.' Sylvester later issued another 'apology,' only it demeaned Rice even more: 'I'm concerned that I have offended many African Americans by using a crass term to describe an incompetent, dishonest, political appointee of the Bush administration, I apologize ... She has allowed herself to be used as a black trophy ...' "

Click Here For Children having children

WorldNetDaily: Children having children: "According to the World Almanac 2005 -- which now lists illegitimate birth rates under the politically correct heading 'Nonmarital Childbearing' -- nearly 70 percent of black children are born outside of wedlock. With Latinos, the rate is almost 45 percent, whites nearly 30 percent, and Asians 15 percent. Overall, about 34 percent of America's children today are born outside of wedlock.

According to the Heritage Foundation, children born outside of wedlock were more likely to engage in early sexual activity and have children out of wedlock. The report further stated, 'Compared to children living with both biological parents in similar socioeconomic circumstances, children of never-married mothers exhibit 68 percent more antisocial behavior, 24 percent more headstrong behavior, 33 percent more hyperactive behavior, 78 percent more peer conflict, and 53 percent more dependency. Overall, children of never-married mothers have behavioral problems that score nearly three times higher than children raised in comparable intact families.' "

Click Here For An armed citizenry and liberty

WorldNetDaily: An armed citizenry and liberty: "Who are the strongest supporters of the attack on our Second Amendment rights? They're the liberals in and out of Congress, who want more and more government control over our lives. These people want to be secure in the knowledge that they can encroach upon our liberties and face no prospect of armed resistance. These people don't have the courage to seek a constitutional amendment repealing the Second Amendment, so they want to eat away at it piecemeal in the name of fighting crime and protecting children. That's why the Littleton, Colo., massacre is so appealing to them; it gives them cover.

Their ultimate agenda is gun confiscation. Their strategy is akin to the cigarette-Nazi's strategy: start out with reasonable demands and then escalate. Initially, all the cigarette-Nazis wanted was no smoking sections on airplanes. Then they escalated to no smoking on planes altogether, then in airports, restaurants, workplaces and now even outside. Had they made their full agenda known at the beginning, they wouldn't have gotten anything.

I don't know about you, but if you ever hear that Williams' guns have been confiscated, you'll know that Williams is dead. "

The founders intended, and laid out the ground rules, for our nation to be a republic. "

WorldNetDaily: Foolish question about Bill Cosby: "How does one compare what Cosby was accused of to Jackson's fathering a child out of wedlock and quite possibly using tax-exempt monies donated to his Citizen Education Fund to buy a $365,000 California home for his paramour? Not to mention hefty child support and $35,000 in severance pay.

Deroy Murdock, reporting on a Bill O'Reilly expose of Jackson, wrote that 'CEF raised $2,077,219 in 1998 and $9,919,914 in 1999. Meanwhile it spent on $30,933 and $15,699 in education and research in those years respectively. CEF dedicated just 0.39 percent of its budget to its stated purpose.'

WorldNetDaily: Come on, Harry, it's because he's black: "Of course, liberal whites who practice bigotry are quick to fall back on their track record on civil rights. The problem is, the things they support are designed to keep blacks on their ideological plantation of servitude, indebtedness and dependence upon them. If they were truly for blacks, they would champion meritocracy even if they disagreed with policy. "

Click Here For Teach science, math, English to black children

WorldNetDaily: Teach science, math, English to black children: "I submit it is time to pull the curtain back and reveal the wizard pulling the levers of failure for these children. Black children must be equipped with competitive math and science skills. They must possess communication skills that exceed Ebonics. They must, without question, possess social skills beyond those embraced on the street corner. Black children must be taught that the world doesn't end at the corner of their neighborhood -- nor does it begin with rap music, drugs and violence.

It is an incomparable injustice perpetrated on these young to waste a month with TV commercials and charlatans fomenting a prescribed history of social injustice when the children being indoctrinated are unable to read, write or comprehend at their grade levels.

When Carter Woodson initiated Black History Week, black children took pride in being able to read and write. Today the polar opposite is the case. It is the lack of marketable linguistic, social and educational skills that cause the disproportionate rates of unemployment and income disparity among blacks. "

It is true, of course, that Social Security is nothing but a government-run Ponzi scheme, that there is no trust fund, that as an investment it is a complete rip-off, that it rewards white women at the expense of black men and that it is an outrageous violation of the Constitution of the United States of America.

Some Rights That Should Be Put In Writing: "Another popular 'right' is the 'right not to be offended.' Recently a schoolgirl objected to reading 'Grendel' by John Gardner -- it's the Beowulf saga retold from the vantage of the monster. Her class was studying Beowulf, one of the oldest works in the English language, and Gardner's Grendel was supplementary reading.
She found the monster's sex and violence offensive. Since sex and violence have been a staple of all literature since Homer and the Old Testament, the 'right not to be offended' is essentially the 'right to be illiterate.'"

Reason: Brothers In Arms: How civil rights flowed from a rifle barrel: "At a protest meeting held at Carnegie Hall after the New York City riot, one of the speakers, 'Miss M.R. Lyons of Brooklyn,' told the audience:
Let every negro get a permit to carry a revolver. You are not supposed to be a walking arsenal, but don't you get caught again. Have your houses made ready to afford protection from the fury of the mob, and remembering that your home is your castle and that no police officer has a right to enter it, unless he complies with the usage of the law; see that he does not."

Click Here For Social Security deceit

WorldNetDaily: Social Security deceit: "The next big lie is from the same Social Security pamphlet: 'Beginning Nov. 24, 1936, the United States government will set up a Social Security account for you ... The checks will come to you as a right.' First, there's no Social Security account containing your money, but more importantly, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on two occasions that Americans have no legal right to Social Security payments.

In Helvering v. Davis (1937), the court held that Social Security was not an insurance program, saying, 'The proceeds of both (employee and employer) taxes are to be paid into the Treasury like internal-revenue taxes generally, and are not earmarked in any way.'

In a later decision, Flemming v. Nestor (1960), the court said, 'To engraft upon Social Security system a concept of 'accrued property rights' would deprive it of the flexibility and boldness in adjustment to ever-changing conditions which it demands ...' That flexibility and boldness mean Congress can constitutionally cut benefits, raise retirement age, raise Social Security taxes and do anything it wishes, including eliminating payments. "

Click Here For What Social Security Crisis?

What Social Security Crisis?: "In February 1998, then-President Bill Clinton told a Georgetown University audience that a poll indicated that young people felt they were more likely to see a UFO than they were to receive Social Security benefits. He spoke of the 'looming fiscal crisis in Social Security,' saying that Social Security would be bankrupt by 2030 if nothing were done.

Senator John Edwards, D-N.C., told the 106th Congress that the Social Security system was 'riddled with holes. ... And if Congress does not start considering an overall Social Security reform, we will eventually have a hole too big to fix.' In June 2002, Edwards warned again of the 'Social Security crisis.'

On March 30, 2001, Senator Robert Byrd, D-W.V., talked about the 'long-term financing crisis [that] faces the Social Security program.' Again, in May 2003, Byrd referred to 'the impending Social Security funding crisis.'

The above examples illustrate that Democrats have been railing about the Social Security crisis for years. But like a petulant child who must take a contrarian position against his parents, the Democratic leadership is now demanding that no crisis exists.

Who will suffer for such childish behavior? We will. "
