Give them clean needles?!
You've got to be kidding...
Bishop Hubbard approves free distribution of needles to drug abusers
Certain polls taken say many thought it was very inspirational, another great performance by the President.
I think many forgot to put on their thinking caps. How about trying something new. How about listening to what the man says and seeing what he does.
Do his actions match his words. Is the President, and we should do this with anyone, telling the facts as he see it or stating the facts as they really are.
President Obama lost me on several point and I fought hard not to change the radio channel.
1. He deals with no Lobbyist ... you lost me on that one Mr. President.
2. Foreign countries can now contribute to moneys to our Elections?
3. Bipartisanship... Oh My Gosh. Let's get real.
4. Job creation. Are there enough 'Solar panel jobs to go around.' Are these going to be outsource to China too. It's cheaper.
5. Are we all destined to carry shovels with us off to work to build roads and bridges. Is he proposing bridges and roads to nowhere?
I can list several others but you (hopefully) get my point.
We all want our country to get back on track, economically, with it's leadership in the world, our education and our health care and security against those that would do us harm.
Let's not swallow the hook-line-sinker ... again.
Does Obama know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence?

It turns out that change isn’t always good. And sometimes “Change” actually means more-of-the-same.
It also turns out there are different kinds of hope. I’m beginning to think that Obama’s kind of hope is that of Friedrich Nietzsche: “Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torments of man.”
Supreme Court Drop-Kicks McCain/Feingold...
Naturally, President Obama immediately issued a statement opposing the decision. As the Washington Post reports::
With its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics. It is a major victory for big oil, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day in Washington to drown out the voices of everyday Americans. … We are going to talk with bipartisan congressional leaders to develop a forceful response to this decision.
So there it is: the President and members of the Mandarin Class are preparing a “forceful response” to the First Amendment.
Had enough yet?

Pope Finished With Vol. 2 of Jesus of Nazareth
Neusner was almost at a loss for words to express the joy of that visit: “We spoke of our books, and he told me that he’s finished writing the second volume of his work on Jesus.”
So here we go.

Cardinal: "The Fall of Europe is Looming!" - I'm actually ready a book on the 1529-1530 attempt of the Ottoman Empire to to invade Europe at the Battle of Vienna between King Charles V and Suleyman the Magnificent. If the Islamic leader had won the battle then, Europe would have been Muslim. Looks like that battle is being wages again today.
Obama Christmas Story - The Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ... Not a Symbol!

At first glance, the scene makes little sense. John’s strident call to repentance provokes an overwhelming response. People of all shapes and sizes flock to him in the wilderness. They are baptized in the Jordan as a sign of repentance and cleansing.
Suddenly, out of the crowd steps John’s cousin Jesus. Wait a minute. What’s Jesus, the sinless one, doing in a crowd of repenting sinners? What’s he doing coming forward to be baptized by John, who is by his own admission, is inferior to his cousin?
In an interview with Newsweek, the second most powerful Catholic in this country said:
‘I have some concerns about the Church’s position respecting a woman’s right to choose,’ Pelosi responds. ‘I am a practicing Catholic, although they’re probably not too happy about that. But it is my faith.
‘I practically mourn this difference of opinion because I feel what I was raised to believe is consistent with what I profess, and that is that we are all endowed with a free will and a responsibility to answer for our actions,’ she continues. “And that women should have that opportunity to exercise their free will.’
Amp also points out the absolute laughable errors in her thinking via Elizabeth Lev.
Pelosi's Catholic-lite construct here suggests that free will means the ability to judge what is right and wrong, with each person's conscience being the final arbiter. Coherency in her concept of Catholic teaching would mean legalizing rape and murder and allowing each person to choose and then take responsibility for his or her own actions. More than the far left liberal that many claim her to be, Pelosi seems to favor anarchy.
Nothing like starting out the year with another 'I am catholic according to my own definition' moment.
