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.

The Unkindest Cut

Hello, fellow extremist (You did give at least moral support for the TEA parties, didn't you? If not, why not?). Perhaps you've heard about President Obama's magnanimous offer to trim $100 million from a $1 trillion budget is bringing out the guffaws even from the Leftern press. That's because the cuts would be miniscule, and in some cases the "savings" would take more than a decade to be resolved. For example, this nebulous "drop in the bucket" amounts to less than 1/4 of the budget Congress gave itself.

By the way; did you hear the latest from Obama guru David Axelrod? I quote: "Anti-Americanism isn't cool anymore." Funny how that works, when the other team is in charge, eh? Trash your own country and do everything you can to hurt it, just so you can provoke more people to vote for your side. But for some of us, it never was cool. Conservatives may diss bad politicians (of either side), but we don't endanger the country by leaking sensitive information, by violent protests, or by venal personal attacks; we generally offer logical reasons for our discord, and we prefer solutions that have some basis in experience when possible.

And that leads to the gag reflex of the week; Obama's release of interrogation records. Conservative pundits argue -- and I agree -- that this breach of national security will put in danger future efforts to stop terrorist acts, because the enemy will now know what to expect (as if Obama will allow such procedures again) and can train their operatives in more effective resistance to the methods. When we ever get a sane leadership again, we will have to escalate our interrogation methods in order to produce equivalent results to the methods outlined in the files, which were effective according to the records the malAdministration won't release. But wait...there's more!

Col. Oliver North -- a man who knows his way around clandestine antiterrorism circles -- brought up an interesting point; that because Obama released unredacted records, our enemies can now download exact copies of the materials as they were written, with the original headings and type fonts.

Why is this important? Because it will allow any foe with a computer and printer to produce perfect counterfeit reports and records at any time; they will be able to produce false documents that look completely authentic and date them back years. They could make phony documents that implicate officials in events that never happened, or provide enemy agents with realistic documentation.

What can we do when our top leaders conspire to commit what used to be known as treason by releasing top secret documents that give aid and comfort to the enemy? Honestly, we're in new territory here; we've never been saddled with a president who so callously disregards his oath of office, his duty to the Constitution and his obligation to guard the safety of the nation. But in our current "through-the-looking-glass" world, we who love our country, show respect to our fellow citizens to the point of pain, and honor our Constitution -- we're considered to be the bad guys by the mental midgets in Washington and their sycophants in the liberal media, public schools and universities.

Now, I'm the first to admit I'm not the sharpest tack on the bulletin board, but I think I do have a point. Only four months into this presidency, and I get the impression that this may just be the most inept malAdministration in US history. From Obama's campaign gaff that he "had visited 57 states, and had a couple more to go," to the incalculable damage done to our economy (which admittedly began before it), to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano's abyssmal misunderstanding of our border situation, our top leadership has consistently demonstrated they are not equipped for the positions they hold.

A 'corny' solution. Part of Obama's plan for a 'greener' planet will likely contribute to the deaths of millions of people worldwide, as he continues George Bush's push for converting corn to ethanol (and conservatives complained about Bush on this topic also). It won't be effective as an energy-saver because it takes more energy to produce the ethanol than it will deliver, and it takes away from the food supply at a time when populations are climbing and third-world dictators are holding back on food distribution, allowing their citizens to starve as a means of political control. But then, that's also long been a part of the globalist elite plan, too.

When losing is a plus! What defines character? One answer is that you do the right thing and stay true to your conscience even when it hurts you. This was demonstrated during the Miss USA pageant. Miss California Carrie Prejean, when asked by an openly homosexual blogger-as-judge if she approved of same-sex marriage, answered, "In my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be – between a man and a woman." As you might expect in a PC-oriented contest such as this, Prejean didn' t win, although she did make top runner-up.

The contestant judge, gay gossip blogger Perez Hilton, is a screaming queen (not an insult, an observation) whose behavior should be insulting to any homosexual who simply wants to live their life without rancor. Perez is an obscene caricature who is more concerned with belittling others better than himself ina futile effort to give his own miserable life meaning. After the contest, he did an infantile video blog rant which insulted Carrie (I'm not going to honor him by providing a link to his diatribe -- you'll have to search it for yourself) and made himself look like an idiot.

When interviewed later, Ms. Prejean admitted that, "This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith," Prejean said. "I'm glad I stayed true to myself." So are we, Carrie; so are we. Thanks for the lesson in faith, courage, humility and gratitude.

And just in case you didn't know (and are brain-dead); the homsexual agenda (this link from CWA has the most accurate description; going to most gay sources is likely to get you little more than sarcasm and profanity) is being aggressively pursued in key 'markets' throughout the nation, from the forced legalization of homosexual marriage to propagandizing public school students.

Looking for an interesting and challenging job? Her Majesty's Secret Service has a job opening. British spy-shop MI5 is looking for someone to fill a position for a chief scientific advisor to perform similarly to the fictional James Bond's buddy, "Q". All you need is demonstrated brilliance in as many scientific fields as possible, and administrative excellence, as well as being able to keep secrets like (literally) nobody's business. Oh, and a classy British accent wouldn't hurt.
