This is an excellent article by Hugh Hewitt about those who try to silence the “religious right”. It’s funny they blame us for bringing these issues up when it is them by hijacking the courts that are pushing them forward at an alarming rate.

I am listening to Geroge Felos utter some of the most false statements i have ever heard. He is saying things like, “This death was not for hte siblings, not for the spouse but for Terri. She has a right to die with Dignity”, “Mr. Schiavo has acted in the utmost good faith.” and “This was always about what Terri wished”and also “Terri died a quiet, peaceful death with a stuffed animal under her arm” when Michael himself said “We do not know what Terri wants in this”.
Time to raise up my voice in support of Israel and against those that mean her harm form the inside. Israpundit via Cosmic X is leading a blogger’s ring against disengagement.
There is reason for concern. Terri just established euthanasia as a proper choice for those who are highly disabled so they will not burden society. There is one more group that costs us even more than the disabled. The elderly. Guess what? I bet they are next.
One of the readers says she is on the edge of her seat for it is going to be a wild ride from now on in this country. I wholeheartedly agree..strap yourselves in folks..it is about to get wild.

Heaven help Greer!
Well said, Mr. Farah. Pastor Rice stood up against the secular Goliaths. He could have kept silent, but he stood up, for which I am grateful. He will be a witness for God against Judge Greer.
I believe God used him to warn Greer just as David was warned about his adulterous, murderous affair. Greer had his day of fame, but now will live in infamy as a killer judge. He will not have the opportunity to bring Terri back. But then he does not fear God, at least in this life, but there is more than just this life.
Terri will be in the arms of God soon and heaven help poor judge Greer and his fellow black-robed judges.
When Terri expires, the Lord will move. Remember this was done before a nation, just like David’s sin.
I am holding onto the edge of my seat because after what went down here, we are in for the ride of our life. The Lord is the righteous judge of innocent blood that was shed at the hands of wicked men.
Death warrant for America
It is hard to describe how shocked and dismayed I feel at what is happening to Terri Schiavo. How can we as a nation allow a misguided, biased judge and attorney rule over the land? What is wrong with a country that would allow them to rule over the government and the people as though there is nothing that can be done?
We are signing a death warrant for what was a great nation by allowing this horrendous act to take place. Does any sane person doubt that this is setting a very dangerous precedent?
I pray that God will forgive us for what has happened and that while there is still life, He will embolden those who were elected to lead this country to take the action required to save Terri’s life.
I just got done reading what Judge Greer’s pastor said to him and I applaud Pastor Rice for telling Greer what his decision should have been ? he is correct that the answer can be found in the Bible under “Thou shalt not kill.”
Greer is now an accessory to first degree murder in the eyes of God and in the eyes of anyone with morals. The Terri Schiavo case is nothing less then judicial homicide of the disabled.
I can only pray for Terri now, and if she dies, I will pray that she receives justice in death, as she received no justice in life.
America has lost it’s soul
I am so truly sorry and ashamed of my country to the bottom of my soul. I can’t bear to think about what Terri’s mother is going through at this moment at the hands of people so evil it’s hard to imagine they are walking loose among us. How can this evil prevail?
I know Terri’s true family, her only family is in agony right now, so dazed with disbelief it’s unimaginable. An ordinary all-American family fighting such evil and waiting for the country they have all believed in to help them and to be abandoned in this manner is beyond words. It’s beyond anything I can say, or anything I can think. There is no solace for such a betrayal. No comfort, no end to the sorrow inflicted by this barbarous hideous act.
This is truly a defining point in this society, in this country and what it has become. And the world is watching. Watching us starve to death a helpless, defenseless, disabled woman, while at the same time trying to convince the world of our “goodness” and trying to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqis.
It’s very unpopular to be part of the “blame America first” club, but for the love of God, how can we allow despotic judges, and an admitted adulterer take precedence over the multitude of loving family members of Terri who only ask that she live? America has lost it’s soul.
I believe that God himself will point to this incident in the final judgment of us all. I pray for Terri. She will not die! She will be standing at the side of Christ on the Judgment Day as a witness to Him against those who also crucified her and crucified Him anew.
More instanity. The ACLU is going to sue these folks for simply watching folks cross the boarders and call law enforcement when they find illegal aliens. Video is available at this link. The ACLU is training its members to monitor the citizens and threaten them with lawsuits. “The mere presence of the minutemen unlawful imprisonment of migrants:. The ACLU is no longer an american organization but a subversive organization.
What is more disgusting than the fact she was murderd is that her murderer threw terri’s parents out and had her die with uncaring folks who wanted to watch her die. Satan is truly eating this up as no sane person would do this. Only somebody taken over by the devil would do this.(which blog did i see that one on that exposed this so wonderfully?) The amount of posts that will be covering this are going to be many so i will link to a few to get everyone started.
I will believe this politician’s words when i actually see an impeachment happen.
Any ouchies in here for you? I get ouchies that’s for sure..:)
Has anyone truly realized what is going on? The Gov’t is having to defend itself using its powers against the judicial who aparently now has the power to make laws on its own. Last time i read the constitution the Judiciary interperts the laws..not decides what is constitutional or not. The judiciary was never framed to decide whether a law was good or bad..but to interpert cases according the laws passed IN THIS COUNTRY.
Bush is apparently feeling the heat a bit. Instead of hiring more border patrol..why not use the national guard for its inteneded purpose. The national guard was never meant for overseas duty…put those folks on the borders..we’ll see how long the invasion lasts then.
You know, I sympathize with this woman. I would wind up getting arrested myself. However i would also maks esure hte man who ipregnated her was buried UNDER THE JAIL.
The coming attack on blogs. The FEC is on it way to further ignoring the first Amendment. Big Brother is well on its way. This is the litmus test for the national id cards that are coming.
How interesting. Unfortunatly this post is also totally true in its conclusions. There is already assisted death in Oregon. Now Florida. Make those living wills now folks..
While I disagree with Greer’s actions in this and many others, a court order no matter how offensive is a court order. As far as i am concerned there are legal and legislative ways to get a court order overturned. In the post i am linking too this statement is concerning:
Contact the Pinellas Park City Police and remind them that although most court orders are worth keeping, that they are only pieces of paper.
Yes that is what they are. This is now advocating us doing to exact thing the leftists have been doing. This is not the way to go. Let’s not stoop to our opponent’s level in this fight for life.
I was really hoping to post something positive here. Regrettably, I have seen the underside of humanity. While many have been nice throughout the week, I have not seen, read or experienced anyone that fits in this category. Here’s hoping for next week.
God Bless and Happy Easter
I am going to reproduce these in full..I hope World net Daily doesn’t mind as they tend to not stay up for very long. Again these are all from World Net Daily’s pages and not my own very small readership.
The left’s culture of death
Perhaps nothing better illustrates the cultural divide separating blue state voters from their red state counterparts than what happened in Florida this past week. Within hours of Terri Schiavo having her feeding tube removed by order of a Florida judge, a registered sex offender confessed to kidnapping and murdering a 9-year-old Florida girl. Assuming he is convicted and sentenced to death, which of the two do you think will command the left’s sympathy? Will it be the severely handicapped Ms. Schiavo, who is slowly being starved to death through a denial of food and water? Or will it be a confessed murderer who may soon find himself sitting on death row?
When those on the left support life, invariably it is the life of the death-row inmate or of a terrorist in some far away prison. Otherwise, the left promotes a culture of death with its support of abortion on demand and the homosexual death-style. And now the gates to their morbid domain are opening wider to include euthanizing the handicapped!
The Bible says that those who hate God love death. And when life is no longer seen as a sacred gift from God, its value and worth will be determined by judges and legislators. When that happens, no one is safe.

Therapy can help Terri
Our son, Travis, was in a severe car wreck eight years ago, as a passenger. All died except him. The paramedics could not find any sign of life until one happened to see a trickle of blood coming from Travis’ mouth ? with air bubbles in it.
Our son was rushed to Roanoke Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. His face was crushed, he lost his left eye, and he had severe traumatic brain injury. He was in a coma for over six weeks and then was in a catatonic state, not knowing any of his family or friends for the next nine months!
He was lucky in the fact that he had good physical and cognitive therapies given to him ? and this young man could not swallow on his own; he had to be taught!
There were so many traumatically brain-injured patients in his various rehabs. Many were tied to wheelchairs with blank looks on their faces and drooling at the mouth. However, you should have seen many of them at Christmas parties when Santa Claus appeared! Their faces do show emotion ? trust me!
Many in the rehab institutions for traumatic brain injuries are very much like Terri Schiavo. They need therapy, and lots of it. The fact that she lights up when she sees her family is indeed a sign that she can be helped! Please do not let this poor woman die. Her family is willing to save her, and I truly believe that miracles happen for many TBI patients years down the road.
I have to respond to this one:
You folks amaze me with your pretzel logic. Kudos to Bush for flying back to D.C. to grandstand on the Schaivo case when he couldn’t be bothered to disturb his vacation when over 130,000 people died (most women and children) in the tsunami. Oh, that’s right, they weren’t white, Christian and didn’t have oil.
Do any of you know or care about the law that Bush signed as governor of Texas that allows a care facility to refuse or stop care to a patient (such as Schaivo) regardless of the families wishes? The only factor in their right to live or die is the families’ ability to pay. This subjugates the patients’ lives to the corporate bottom line. In the past month, a baby was pulled from life support despite his mother’s wishes as a result of this law.
This is the America that you want? This is the compassionate Christian conservatism that you signed up for? To me this is the height of hypocrisy and shows how morally bankrupt these supposed Christian leaders truly are.
Frankly I do not think we should have sent any aid over there. The elites of those contries simply stood back and waited for us instead of helping their people. Look through the archives about the UN during this time and you will see what many of these countried did to help their own people. Now not all of the countries sat on their hands..but the majority did.
Terri case to affect character of our soul
I had to go through a painf
erience of having to decide to let two of my elderly family members go. These were the most difficult decisions I ever had to make. They were in their late 80s, slowly dying from cancer and kidney failure. They had nothing left but excruciating pain in their life. Still, I could not let go until all medical options had been exhausted and no hope was left.
Terri’s case is completely different. She is not in constant pain, and the state of her brain is debatable. Nobody knows for sure what she experiences; there is a slim chance her condition might actually improve; and there are loving family members willing and able to take care of her, if not for her scumbag husband.
Outcome of this case will set a legal precedent and will determine the fate of thousands of disabled people in this country. More importantly, it will affect the character of our society, our culture and the state of our collective soul. It will influence our ability to value, respect and love life.
Special ops should rescue Terri!
So why can’t President Bush send a special ops team to Florida to save the life of an American citizen? There are many good things that can be done by this president. Mounting a military rescue of Terri Schiavo would boost the diminishing respect I have for the man I helped put in office.
John S. Rykken
Battle of the branches
I think it is more than Terri’s fate that hangs by a weakening thread this day. I believe she in fact represents America, being fought over by the separate branches of government. Her fate is our fate, and the branch that wins this war over Terri will almost certainly be the one that ultimately wins the war over the freedom of the entire United States to decide matters on their own behalf.
If we the people cannot win this war of giving Terri a chance at life, then how are we going to win the war to give our own states a chance at life? If the judiciary succeeds in getting away with this blatant homicide, then they’ve finally arrived at that constitutionally explosive position of unchecked power most feared by the Founding Fathers.
The fact is Terri may be able to recover, but the judge is not interested. She may be able to swallow, but the judge is not interested. She may be able to benefit from therapy, but the judge is not interested. She may enjoy some sunlight, but the judge is not interested. She may be able to show her consciousness on video, but the judge is not interested. Well, guess what, Judge: We, the people, are interested ? vitally interested.
The smell of death
Rabbi Boteach said in his recent article: “Before Hitler came for the Jews and the gypsies, he first came after the mentally handicapped.”
Death lawyer George Felos, Judge George Greer and Michael Schiavo seem to have formed a pact to do the same. Felos actually tried to politicize the whole thing after Terri’s tube was removed by making it a Republican issue. I am sure there are plenty of Democrats who care about Terri.
The “quality of life … culture of death … loving neglect” crowd seem delighted at the prospect of ridding our society of one of its most helpless, all the while professing to be taking the high road. These are the same folks who protect pregnant lobsters, baby seals, whales and anything else non-human. Interesting how they tend to be pro-abortion as well. The smell of death surrounds this crowd!
My dog had a stroke some time ago, and he is less than perfect now, but there is no way I would even remotely consider starving him to death. Imagine the type of character it takes to starve a human. I know of at least three of them.
May the best man win
We respectively suggest that, if Terri Schiavo dies as a result of this miscarriage of “justice,” Michael Schiavo, Judge Greer (the Starvin’ Judge) and George Felos (Felon?) be locked together in a steel box with no food and water, but be provided with sharp objects. It will be educational to see who eats whom first. They, too, deserve the right to die ? appropriately and with the dignity they intend for Terri.
Thomas and Judy Christiansen
Let Terri die in dignity
Nothing ceases to amaze me. Our government has now decided who should or shouldn’t live. In essence, Mrs. Schiavo is already dead.
The photos are those of hours of proppi
r up and hoping she will make a gesture or two to feed a story line. If this woman had any cognitive powers, she would be outraged at the pictures of her being shown all over the world. Those who think she should be saved should have to walk in her husband’s shoes for one day. Let her die in dignity and get on with life.
Our news media, including WND, have gone hyper over this issue and should be ashamed of themselves. I am a believer in euthanasia. ? We euthanize our pets to save them further pain and suffering; why not our humans?
Schiavo is a good example of this. Give her medication and forget the starvation angle. Or shut the Christian fanatics up and let them wait for a miracle ? or have they forgotten such things still do occur?
Our nation has become one of do-gooders who think they are gods. This is not only disgusting, it is dangerous.
Today America descended to the depths of Nazi Germany of 1939. A judge has ordered the death of an undesirable. In fact, we are worst than Nazi Germany. They would have just shot or poisoned her, not starved her to death. Sieg heil, America.

Terri’s ‘cruel and unusual punishment’
I saw the headline the other day: “Scott Peterson receives death sentence.” The judge ruled that his crime was so horrific that his death will be carried out by starvation and dehydration! Oh, wait a minute; I’m getting my stories mixed up. Death by starvation and dehydration is too cruel and unusual a punishment to implement on any lowlife criminal. We reserve that execution for the disabled and helpless citizens of America! (Terri Schiavo).
Enjoy your supper, Judge Greer.
Let’s see Terri’s reality
Our society is into reality TV programs. Well, why don’t we get to see for ourselves whether Terri Schiavo is in a vegetative state like her husband says or is interacting with her environment like her parents say? Because this has gone so far into the public arena and divided people into two strong camps, why not let Americans see for themselves what the truth is? I’m curious to know if any TV journalists are making this demand under the “public’s right to know.”
Our American leftists could also learn a lesson here. Of course they do not care about this country. Too bad the same infection exists both ehre and in God’s HOly Land of Israel.
I am not sure there is anything we are going to be able to do through man’s resources. Terri needs prayer. Let’s pray for her suffering to end quickly in accordance with God’s will and pray for comfort to her family no matter how her suffering ends. This is one of htose times i cannot wrap my limited mind around God’s plan but I have full faith that this will work out for hte better of believers as per the Bible.
The truth is finally revealed.
I was afraid of this. I pray for Jessica’s family and friends after this tragedy.
They are gettign posted too fast for me to keep up with..jsut follow the link above.
Terri has been senteced to a horrible, slow, tortuous death. Pray, Pray that God’s will be done in whatever way. This is one time I do not understand why God would allow this..i hope enough folks get riled by this to actually do something to keep it from happeneing again.
*Oh my..Michael’s attorney is on Fox right now saying non-chalantly,”Terri is in her dying process”. This is about to make me sick.
The hospice was served with federal suponeas that say terri canot be murdered until she testifies.
State Judge Greer has said to remove the feeding tube immediatly. This is most assuredly greer overstepping his bounds. This man needs to be removed immediatly. A federal case is being filed right now to squash Greer’s order.
*UPDATE2* It gets better. This Post at Lone Star Times shows the sheer arrogance and elitism of Greer.
Here is the suffering Terri will go through if this is allowed to proceed.
WOW! That is all i can say..WOW!
Another excellent article. How true..the judge and michael will now torture Terri to death.
This is an excellent place to get news about Terri. Today we jsut might get to watch this woman get starved to death. This would be murder if it was not sanctioned by the courts. Why is this being allowed to take place? Is it not murder..or at least neglect..both of which carry penalites under hte law?
Talk about blowing the lid off things. This shows that Terri is being used to push the euthanasia agenda and terri’s husband is helping due to his long record of negelct and just wanting his wife whom he deems inconvienent out of the way. In any other context..this would be a murder for hire scheme. I wonder why law enformcement is not looking at this for what it is?
Kudos to the Captain’s Quarter’s for finding this gem.
To quote the captain, “Up to now, my inclination was to consider this an unfortunate case of dueling experts and bitter family feuding. Now I think this is something more. The people who want the feeding tube pulled all seem to have vested interests outside of Terri’s well-being — Cranford wants to push an agenda for euthanazing people who he finds inconvenient, and Michael Schiavo appears to have a long history of neglect, or at least disinterest in pursuing the proper testing for his wife’s condition.
As I wrote earlier, when in doubt, we should err on the side of life rather than death. As Father Johansen points out, grave doubts exist about Terri’s true condition. It seems almost perverse to insist on pulling out her feeding tube until the proper testing can be done, and if Schiavo won’t allow it, the court should demand it. A few more weeks to determine the real diagnosis of Terri Schiavo won’t hurt anyone, and might just save a life. Read the entire article — it’s lengthy but fascinating and horrifying. Don’t forget to check out the Schindlers’ web site, Terri’s Fight, for further updates.”
We as pro-lifers have some ammo now in Cali. Please use it..:)
Here is part two of the interview i posted about earlier. It is up over at Lashawn Barber’s place.
Sounds like our Patriot Act no?
This woman decided to stand in front of a moving bulldozer in protest. It was her choioce to get herself killed. Now her parents are suing Israel and Caterpillar. While the grief over their daughter is grave…their lawsuits against Israel and Cat are frivolous at best and deserve to be thrown out. Their daughter made that choice that led to her demise.
Little Green Footballs has more on the story including hte frivolous lawsuit her parents have filed in retaliation for her daughter’s poor choice. World Net Daily’s Les Kinsolving comments, “De mortuis nil nisi bonum is that venerable Roman maxim which means: “Of the dead [say] nothing but good.”
That needs one additional word: “Of the honored dead say nothing but good.”
Otherwise, if our initial missiles fired into the city of Baghdad had killed Saddam Hussein, how could all obituaries truthfully say nothing but good?
Should we say nothing but good about a suicide bomber?
Should we say nothing but good about a young American from Washington state who was so anxious to help the suicide bombing Palestinians that she put herself in front of an armored Israeli bulldozer? She was in a position that was out of sight of the soldier-driver, who was unable to see her through the narrow openings and therefore ran over her, so she was dead-on-arrival at a hospital.
Her death was given worldwide coverage ? including a cartoon in the University of Maryland’s student newspaper, the Diamondback.
This cartoon, by Daniel Friedman, shows a bulldozer bearing down on a seated woman. Its caption was blunt ? but it might deter others from what this caption noted as: “STUPIDITY … SITTING IN FRONT OF A BULLDOZER TO PROTECT A GANG OF TERRORISTS.”
Terri Shivao was just the beginning. Now the courts are taking over. The proof is right here. Courts ordered doctors to pull the plug on a baby overriding the mother’s wishes. Oligarchial sanctioned murder is coming folks. It started a while back(read in the archives), Terri was just the most public. The Captain’s Quaters gives a good writeup. It’s sad this would happen at all..it is more disturbing my own home state would do this.
Granted the mother was unemployed and apparently unstable, but the precedent has been set. I can see both sides in this but the precendent that has been set is very very distrubing. More Terri’s and the like are on the way.
Take that! The UAW(union..remember that word from an earlier post?) deserves this. Act like a communist, get treated like one when the military tells you to stuff it.
This would be a disaster. The NAACP has become a organization intent on portraying all blacks as victims depite what reality says. Yes there is racism..on both sides. The problem is not nearly as bad as it was that led to the formation of the NAACP. If the NAACP would stop portraying themselves and all blacks as victims and become a true advocacy group they could do much for all blacks instead of just the eltes. Having this person in my state senate would be almost as scary as Bob Erlich getting re-elected as governor of Maryland.
MS says passwords are passee and willl introduce two factor authentication in longhorn. I agree with this column that is will do nothing to thwart the vast majority of the threats facing consumers now or in the future.
LaShawn Barber has an interview with the civilians who are trying to lawfully protect our borders. Yohoo! Open borders peeps! Can we hear the pop please?
This is insanity. All you have to do is read the bible to see what happens to ideas like this that are aimed soley at hurting Israel.
Gen 12:3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”
You all go ahead and to this divestment thing. I want to be blessed by God not cursed by him.
‘nough said. Sharon has gotten infected by his left much like our president has gotten infected by our left.
the protests against the removal of Jews from their God given land begins to heat up even more.
Here’s confirmation that at least the Washington Post is a subersive, elitist publication.
I am so tired of the Anti_American Civil Liberties Union. Frankly if anything has union in its name i turn the other way.
Tthe ACLU has shown it is no different. It is an Anti-Christian, communist organization at its core and its agenda shows it clearly. It is sad to see how many Americans have been hoodwnked by the ACLU and their MSM cronies into thinking that the ACLU is actually fighting for everyone’s rights. Want a truly good organization, one that routinely takes on the ACLU and wins? Try the ACLJ.
Beware the false prophets as many will rise up and even the elect will be decieved. At my last church they loved Benny HInn. It did not take me long to see him for the huckster he is.
Excellent article and full of nothing but the truth.
Keep praying, e-amling, faxing, and blogging!
The costs of President Bush’s policy that leaves our borders open and “While President Bush says the U.S. needs more “cheap labor” from south of the border to do jobs Americans aren’t willing to do, the case of the Silverios shows there are indeed uncalculated costs involved in the importation of such labor ? public support and uninsured medical costs.”
This is one of the many insanities that is driving this country to ruin. The sad part is..too many folks are willing to jsut sit back and let it happen becuae it does not affect them directly. Here in Brunswick I am already seeing illegal immigrants with their “anchor babies” buying hosues and tasking jobs we americans need. If i can see it without looking to hard in this town of 6k..I can only imagine what Texas, Arizona, and California are going through.
A commenter on WND sent this in:
In reference to the article “Illegal aliens threaten U.S. medical system,” I would like to add that there are additional expenses that are generally not addressed. For example, the cost of education for many towns that have large populations of illegal aliens. The labor might be cheaper, but your property taxes will go up.
Another instance is the damage factor. If one were to have a motor vehicle accident with an illegal alien (in New Jersey, for example) one could expect to have to pay his own deductible even if totally “not at fault” because in most instances they are unlicensed and uninsured. If there were any personal damage involved you would have to pay your own medical deductible and the difference that your auto insurer isn’t paying. Automobile accidents are not covered by your regular medical insurance.
Add it up: Is it worth it?
NO it is not..at least not if you truly care about this country or have any real common sense.
Thanks to Cosmic X for posting first. How sad it is this one judge and one husband are somehow determined to kill a woman who has concious abilities to interact with others. There are videos as well. Take a gander..pray..and let florida know things need to be changed.
Besides the fact the Post gets the settlements wrong terming them illegal, the illegal part is forcing God’s chosen people off their land. Unfortunatly Sharon and Israel’s Left seem determined to commit this act of treason.
I have to thank CosmicX for pointing this out in reponse to this earlier post.. ‘Nough said only I echo this for American soil as well.
This kind of weirdness shouldn’t happen anywhere..much less in Frederick county, MD. A man jailed for life was getting alimony from his wife. He is now indicted for federal conspiracy to commit murder charges stemming from him wanting to get his wife killed. Needless to say she stopped paying hte alimony and a judge found her NOT in contempt for that reason. The wife now could get the alimony order overturned. Read the full story for more details.
If you value it..aka if it is truly private, don’t send it through AIM. Yahoo IM has much the same license. DO NOT use any IM from another company for business purposes. Setup your own IM server..like Jabber.
I figured this was a fabrication. There is no doubt now.
It is also interesting that right after Italy paid the ransom the terrorists fresh with new cash have embarked on their bloodiest terror compaign seen yet. Yep, there reward you gave them surely worked. It only puts more innocent lives at risk. You see, the terrorists are not targeting only Americans, despite what the MSM and other US hating press members tell you, they are targeting the Iraqi people for daring to stand up for themselves. Look at the numbers, the vast majority of the deaths are Iraqi citizens. The terrorists may say they are trying to get rid of the US troops. This is only partially true, the other half of their mission is to punish the Iraqi people for daring to hold true elctions in the first place.
Michelle Malkin seems to think that because we are in a “war on terror” that a U.S. citizen can be arrested on U.S. soil and held against his will without any representation of an attorney and no contact with the outside for an indefinite aount of time. This is insanity. Our constitution specifically gives us certain rights. The gov’t does not have any power to hold U.S. citizens without representation or any basic rights. Sorry michell, You have this totally wrong and are supporting the wrong side on this one.
One down..one to go.
We also need to get Ehrlich out of the Governor’s chair and get somebody else in who is a true conservative. Time to start looking at who is running.
Well we at least know it is not money Michael is interested in. he jsut wants to further the cause of state sponsored murder otherwise known as euthanasia.
Roger L. Simon is of the opinion that the politicos won’t try to shtudown bloggers due to the stink we could raise. His reasons are sound. I am not sure the politicos are going to think reasonably about this. We are already loosing constitutional rights left and right and the SC does not look to the constitution for making its judgements anymore.
Now this is interesting. Some spanish muslims have declared a fatwa against OBL.
The dems woke up. They have latched onto the open borders thing. Will they actually do anything about it? Of course not. Well, not anything tangible. They want the open borders as well so they can get illegals aliens dirver’s licenses and therefore the right to vote(aka hijack elections). I hope they can make enough noise to force GW to start doing something about our borders(or lack of) before he leaves office.
Just goes to show you outward appearances are not always what they seem. Get the point Michael?
I hope this gets stopped. However, that is a hard line to draw. At what point do you take the freedoms of your citizens away? I would like to see this stopped by the prayers of prayer warriors all over hte world. Pray for God’s intervention is His Holy City.
This is the county just south of mine. Sex-ed does not work. The teen pregnancy rate and teen SD rate is not going to go down and is highy likely to just go up after this is implemented. The only effective education is abstinence.
What’s even more amazing is that the board would put an 11-year old girl on this panel. What is more shocking is her parents allowed it!
This will be interesting to see. This puts Michael in a bind. Either way he shows his true colors..:)
Geer and Michael Schiavo are determined to kill Terri at all costs.
*update* Blogs for Terri has even more informaiton about Greer’s apparent arrogance..i akin this to apparent insanity.
The opposistion to disengagement is mounting and now folks from the military and police are refusing orders. This could get really really ugly.
Arutz Sheva via CosmicX carries an op-ed from Yehuda Poch asking what happened to Sharon and our Governments desire to protect our homeland and its people?
In an earlier post the Israeli Left is examined and the answer is there. As for what happened to Israel’s right…it is probably much like our own..we feel safe and secure that our gov’t is going to do what it says it will do. Unfortunatly, as some here in the US are beginning to realize, that is not the case. I hope it will not take a war to wake either the U.S. and/or Israeli citizenry up to their imending peril.
wow has this thing exploded. I knew the bankruptcy bill was bad but i did not know how bad.
Politology has a nice post and informative post about hte effort to get a blog swarm started on this one. the opposistion crosses both liberal blogs and conservative blogs as well.
I posted earlier about this giveaway to the large CC companies and corps in general. Interesting..the repubs for years wnted to shed their “we are for only the big corps” image..but with stuff like this they are only playing right into the stereotype.
Just One Minute also has a post on how this one cuaght the entire blogosphere napping.
Oh this is rich. So unknown hackers hacked hte optical scanner machines to put Bush in power? ROFL! This is rich when it is known the Dems and some Repubs pushed for hte touch screen machines becuase they facilitate voting fraud..:)
Now McCain and CO. are saying, “Trust us..we won’t come after the bloggers”. As noted in the above Captain’s post..yeah..right.
Well what do we have here?
Mr. Harrington is making a stink about the City’s mangement report and Audit report. He is leaving one major detail out…he knew about this report a full 6 months to a year before it was released and knew about its generation before that..while he was still on the City Council. This begs the question in my mind…why did he not raise cain while he was in office? He could have made statements or something during the meetings. I never heard a peep from him. However I will say I do not have direct inside knowledge about our inner workings at City Hall. I think; however, if things are as bad as he is flailing about..it would have broke long before he resigned and started the hood winked site. Let’s see what happens at hte meeting. If Mr. Harrington shows up and asks some pointed questions that make sense I might gain more respect for him. If he simply shows up making accusations based on evidence he already knew about…makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
Now then if the Council starts the usual PC huffing and puffing and smokescreening..then it is going to be interesting. I am going to watch this one.
Qutoing the article:
Seisint, based in Boca Raton, Florida, collects data from government agencies, building large databases and ways to extract information from them.
A Seisint-created criminal information database called Matrix came under fire after it drew up a list of people with terrorist profiles, which then led to some arrests.
Many of the company’s customers are law enforcement agencies and financial institutions.
Interesting how the Big Brother infrastructure that is supposed to protect us all is miserably failing in its early stages.
More identity theft. This time DSW gets hit. Unfortunatly for DSW they did not catch it internally..an outside credit card company alerted them.
The Homeland Security Dept’s contractor for informaiton is riddled iwth errors. Is this truly surprising?
The opposistion to disengagement inside Israel is getting louder and more intense. There is the Sanhedrin speaking out and then one Rabbi blasts Sharon’s plan here. Both of these are at Cosmic X.
Now this is a small problem now..but if these idiots continue this they will be leading us to the one thing they are hysterical about..a draft. Keep it up guys and gals you may be the cause of the one thing you claim to fear the most..:)
This is a highly insightful article about the Israeli Left. However you can take this and apply it to our leftists as well. While you are at it, most lefties think this way.
Hat tip to Cosmic X for the tips to look at this blog.
*update* Here is another article on the same bog posted before this one addressing Israel’s lefties.
Did you know Supreme Court justices can be impeached? It has come high time for this as the wackos who formed their legal judgements based on international laws and opinions need to be thrown off the bench. They are supposed to make judgements according to our constituion not eslewhere. Had this court been following our Constitution constitution this ruling may have been different and may not have been. Either way the basis for the SC’s judgements are supposed to be from our constitution..not “world opinion” and other countries laws.
*update* There is more on the SC’s ruling in David’s next colum here.
While there are some good pooints in this…there are some missteps.
“What the credit card industry has been doing the last 10 years is akin to sending free samples of alcohol to alcoholics,” says Travis Plunkett, legislative director for the Consumer Federation of America.
True I get credit card offers monthly. Now that I have my own business I get even more. However one good old phrase still holds true, “The best way out of debt is to never get into debt.” I simply throw all the credit card offers into the garbage.
Frankly these mega huge corps going bankrupt..writing off billions in debt and stiffing their creditors…and then reemerging intact with no debt is what is truly sickening.
This is an interesting op-ed on the lack of border control by our federal gov’t.
Spend like a drunken Democrat and guess what? Tax cuts go bye-bye..:) RINO’s abound these days..:)
Actually this is something I want to happen. I currently have 3 linux boxes in my house.
1.) Astaro Security Linux Firewall
2.) File server running CentOS 3.4
3.) Gaming server running CentOS 4(this is my CS 1.6 and teamspeak server)
Now we can add another one:
4.) My wife’s Laptop running CentOS 4/Win 2k pro.
The CentOS installation went smooth as melted butter on this laptop. The only issue is the touchpad does not quote work right. I am not sure wireless is going to be aon aoption without some major tinkering. Now if Linux would just work that easily on my nforce 2 desktop. In order to get that to work I have to make kernel mods and recompile….not something i have done before. Considering I am not a fan of XP and will not be buying a copy of longhorn it is time to start transisitoning to Linux..:)
I have found a blogger who lives in Jerusalem. This is a unique perspective from INSIDE Israel about what the poeople think about what their gov’t is doing in regards to this disengagement debacle. Frankly this disengagement merely creates a vacum whre the terorists can move in and seutp new cells. Plus why are govt’s(including the Israeli gov’t) so determined to give back the land promised to them in the bible(or torah)? I am going to link to several posts for those who want it easy..:)

There are so many things the gov’t is trying to steal from us with Bush’s blessing. Besides trying to make a national ID card, further attacks on the constitution are coming under Bush’s watch. Lashawn Barber has this one covered well with her own commentary and lots of links.
*update* IF this law gets extended to bloggers there is this option. Leave it to my home state to come up with this..I love TExas.
An Italian Eason Jordan in the making?
*update* It turns out the driver of the journalists car was speeding towards a checkpoint that has been the target of several suicide car bombers. Gee, no wonder our boys opened fire. Captain’s Quarters has more.
*update 2* Michelle Malkin notes how CNN either fabricates more stuff or simply forgets to check its facts once again.
The Jan. 14 Gazette report noted that the board was not endorsing a specific bill, but was backing the general concept of the payroll tax. At the time, a health care policy analyst for the board said the tax “seemed to make perfect sense to our membership, especially when you account for the fact that you are really talking about only two employers in Maryland, Wal-Mart and Giant. And Giant is effectively subsidizing Wal-Mart.”
That’s funny. What the big thing is..Giant is union..Wal-Mart isn’t.
oh lovely. More overcapacity so we can watch our PURPA surcharges go up even more.
PURPA is a regulation at the federal level that says generators can make all the power they want and thee local power utility HAS to buy it if the generator wishes to sell it.
The council has more than a few things on its plate this year..:)
Here’s the thiings coming up in town..:)
To quote Mr. Bush
“The only reason that I can think that they wouldn’t accept this is that there is a greed factor involved,” he said. “The longer this goes on, it will become transparent to people that this is all about unjust enrichment for a few well-connected Marylanders.”
sorry you have it backwards..the only need to approve this bill is greed.
quoting the article again,
Miller, meanwhile, said that the Frederick and Harford County locations would not work because they could never get zoning approval. The Frederick County Board of Commissioners has blasted slots in general and locating them in Frederick in particular. On Thursday, the commissioners began drafting a zoning amendment that would prohibit slot machines anywhere in the county.
yeppers…our county commisioners are actually listening to the folks here..unlike our state reps.
The individual who runs thinksecret is not under the NDA. Apparently the folks who disclosed the informaiton were. While this could chill freedom fof speech online..the folks that broke hte NDA’s are legally liable. However thinksecret is not liable here..i don’t think.
I am sure various govt’s are going to love this. I am also sure the BSD’s and linux vendors will beath this waaaay before MS does..:)
This is one of hte many reasons i loathe HOA’s.
It’s over. My obessing over the community is partially to blame. I am no longer interested in proving my point. I am leaving and that is it. My wife rightfully blasted me for obessing over the community then obessing over my wanting to prove my feelings and conclusions are right. I love having a wife that puts me in place when needed..:) Any comments about this whole mess will be deleted..so don’t bother.
