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.

Frauds are US

If you listen to the usual suspects in the media, Cap and Trade legislation is virtually dead. But because of the conspiratorial nature of this malAdministration, we must assume it is only flying below the radar, and will surely come back to haunt us with it's oppressive mandates and skyrocketing prices. Thanks to the hard work of Glenn Beck and his team, it has been learned that if Cap and Trade is eventually passed, it will be the signal that Al Gore, Franklin Raines, and a host of co-conspirators - including Barack Obama - will have foisted what will be the most profitable scam in human history upon the American people, with potential ill-gotten gains approaching an estimated $12 trillion

If only the likely revenues of that mega-fraud - essentially nothing more than trading for air, which would do absolutely nothing to improve air quality - would be used to pay off the national debt it might be excused. But of course it won't; it will be used largely to line the pockets of the investors and further the schemes of those who aim to conquer the world, all at the expense of virtually every working human, who will wind up paying more for virtually every human activity. Other than Beck and a few conservative bloggers who have echoed him such as Investor's Business Daily, few other news organization (ironically including Fox News) have even mentioned the mega-scam involving the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX).

Speaking of the ubiquitous Glenn Beck, on Wednesday he had a live audience of legal immigrants who helped him give a passionate and well-informed response to the debate over the Arizona anti-illegals law. That law, sparked by a need to defend their state in the absence of federal enforcement of existing laws, is being used as a battering ram by the radical Left, Mexican infiltrators and agents provocateurs in yet another push to weaken our national unity and security. 

The Mexicans have never gotten over their loss of the Southwestern territory, and the Hispano-racists (i.e., La Raza, etc.) aim to reconquer it through whatever means necessary. Why, after turning their own country into one of the world's largest pockets of corruption, they feel it necessary to add more space to their nationalized criminal syndicate, I don't know. Human nature, I guess.  It's all the more baffling since they could enjoy nearly unfettered access without resorting to their clownish cavorting and violent protests, and also since we're rapidly becoming nearly as corrupt as they are anyway, it seems like a lot of wasted effort to me.

This is no drill!  In the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster - or rather, a week after the fact - President Obama suspended new offshore drilling, as though that will somehow prevent another accident(?) from ocurring.  The only thing the freeze seems to accomplish is to give Obama justification to play to his environut lobbyists, while lamely mouthing to the public how much he "really wants to continue to seek energy self-sufficiency."  Pardon my skepticism.

Ignore that man behind the curtain!  Glenn Beck uncovered another very important piece of the puzzle involving the cabal currently overthrowing over the world's oldest constitutional republic (uh...that would be the United States...of America). He's calling Professor Joel Rogers "the man behind Obama," and he may well be the penultimate puppet-master, if not the man at the top.  Rogers is the brain behind the current socialist/Progressive economic model, utilizing the Cloward-Pivin strategy to its fullest potential and unifying many of the various organizations and institutions that have pledged themselves to the overthrow of the United States.

SEAL of approval!  US Navy SEAL Matthew McCabe is the third and last of three warriors to be cleared of all charges that he physically abused Ahmed Hashim Abed, a terrorist alleged of being the leader of an incident in Fallujah, Iraq, where four US contractors were ambushed and killed, dragged from their vehicle, and their bodies burned and hung from a bridge.  After his capture, Abed claimed that McCabe and fellow SEALs Julio Huertas and Jonathan O'Keefe beat him up while in custody. Three subsequent courts-martial cleared the three sailors after Abed's story fell apart.

I'm delighted in the outcome because it demonstrates that there is still a smidgeon of actual justice left in America; in a military courtroom, of all places. If this case had gone the social justice route that our civilian courts, government, and many churches seem to be pushing these day, the verdict probably would have gone the other way, simply because it would be portrayed as a case of white American military 'oppressing' a poor, misguided Muslim. That's not to say I'd be OK if they'd actually tortured Abed or subjected him to any kind of 'street justice' along the lines that he has been accused of dishing out to others. No...'course not.

Joke of the week.  In what I can only describe as irony, Vladimir Putin blew off Obama's offer to send Joe Biden to Moscow to attend the annual communist 'May Day' (May 1st) military parade and celebrations. It appears that Obama just couldn't make it for the big Commu-fest, and wanted Biden to take his place among other socialist (at least, they're honest about it) demogogues. Putin, apparently unable to resist the urge to let Obama know how he feels about our tyrant-boot-licking leader, snubbed the offer as thoroughly as Obama has done to virtually every real ally the US has. Wow; more 'justice' at work!
