Wish I'd said that!

In recent decades, the ACLU has used its so-called "wall" to fight tooth and nail to prevent government sponsorship of the Pledge of Allegiance, memorial crosses, Ten Commandments displays, nativity scenes, Bible displays, and virtually every other acknowdgement of America's religious heritage.

At the same time, it is worthwhile to note that there have been some instances in which the ACLU has endorsed public displays of religion. For example, When New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani threatened to cut taxpayer funding from the Brooklyn Museum of Art for displaying a painting of the Virgin Mary with cow dung and pictures of female sexual organs pasted all over her body, the ACLU was first in line to defend the display. U.S. District Court Judge Nina Gershon ruled that New York City's elected officials were not allowed to place conditions on the museum's funding.

In another instance, the ACLU offered its support to the taxpayer-funded National Endowment for the Arts, after the agency sponsored an art show featuring "Piss Christ" - an exhibit consisting of a crucifix submerged in a jar of urine.

In the ACLU's myopic world, it appears that the only permissible publicly-funded displays of religion are those which blatantly mock or disparage the Christian faith.

America's accelerating DIS-integration

The changes in American government and society are accelerating at a dizzying pace. After two hundred and thirty-three years of fighting, dying, building, and overcoming mistakes, the nation that changed the world is now seemingly in a headlong rush to become the disaster so many have worked and sacrificed to avoid.

President Obama, who either has no clear understanding of what abortion is all about or the harm it does to the nation, followed Bill Clinton's example and repealed the "Mexico City Policy" that had prevented public money from funding pro-abortion groups around the world.

As an American, it is incredible to watch the moral fabric of this nation being intentionally unraveled, with no consideration of the end result. As pro-abortion factions such as Planned Parenthood and the ACLU seek to remove all roadblocks to the slaughter of the innocents, including forcing doctors to perform the perfidious act against conscience. Also, the FDA is allowing human trials of embryonic stem cell research, despite the abundance of evidence that adult stem cells show more promise without the destruction of donor embryos.

Robert Reich, former Clinton Labor Secretary and now economic advisor to Obama, recently opined to a congressional panel that, "I am concerned, as I'm sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers," apparently unaware of just how dependent our infrastructure is on people who actually know how to do the job and have the incentive to do it right. But then, wouldn't you rather drive over a bridge built by a semi-literate immigrant or high school dropout who gets a check just for showing up, rather than someone with years of training and experience and a mortgage to pay? Ya gotta love these social engineers (no, not really), who haven't a clue as to how their world really operates.

In case you haven't heard (what cave do you live in, anyway?) President Obama has barred intelligence agencies from using harsh interrogation techniques such as waterboarding and sleep deprivation, and signed an executive order prepping the way to close Gitmo, even though he hasn't yet decided what to do with all those enemies of America. When it was suggested that John Murtha's (who has been an outspoken critic of the facility, the war, and the defense of America in general) district take them in, he essentially said, "Why not?" I guess we can rest easy that the blockheads in his district that keep this guy in office won't mind taking care of men who have dedicated themselves to the mass murder of Americans. Incidentally, one of those poor misunderstood souls recently released from Gitmo has returned to his terrorist ways, becoming the number 2 al-Qaeda man in Yemen.

In a lighter vein, did anyone else notice the UFO that seemingly buzzed the Obama coronation? The short video shows some sort of object flying past the Washington Monument, over the crowd. Perhaps Obama really is an alien, after all.

On another, more tragic note, a psychopath wielding an 8 inch knife entered a daycare center in Belgium, stabbing to death two infants and a worker, and slashing several other children. When he was captured, he had the addresses of three other daycare centers and several other weapons. He wasn't particularly hard to find, since he was wearing face makeup to look like the Joker character in the latest Batman movie.

While the late Heath Ledger's performance as a psycho was as powerful as it was chilling, it also shows that in today's schizoid culture, stripped of morality and common sense, the monstrosities thought up in the media do influence some of the weaker and demented minds. It's also worth noting that there has been an increase in the number of similar attacks on defenseless gatherings of people. Churches, schools, daycare centers and home invasions are becoming more frequent, and the ferocity of the attacks has become more horrific. The truth behind the old axiom "We are what we eat" is becoming more and more evident; and it isn't relegated to merely our food.
