War on Terror, Liberal Style

Posted by Mike on December 23, 2005

This is how the war on terror would be conducted if liberals had their way.

Federal Judge Follows Constitution

Posted by Mike on December 23, 2005

Circuit Judge Richard Suhrheinrich of the Sixth Circuit: “The ACLU makes repeated reference to the ’separation of church and state.’ This extra-constitutional construct has grown tiresome. The First Amendment does not demand a wall of separation between church and state. Our nation’s history is replete with governmental acknowledgment and in some cases, accommodation of religion.”

This man should be the next nominee to the United States Supreme Court. For the better part of a century, courts have falsely asserted the First Amendment requires a separation of chuch and state. Finally we have a Cicuit Court judge who appears to have read the Constitution. For the record, the First Amendment is printed below in its entirety.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

I can’t find the separation requirement. That’s because it isn’t there.

Bush Approval Milestone

Posted by Sal on December 23, 2005

Along with Gauvin’s theme that the tide is turning, Bush’s job approval has reached 50% for the first time since July in the Rasmussen poll. This is most likely in response to:

  • The continued success in Iraq finally being made known to the public through the elections, the Bush Speech, and the Press Conference.
  • The fact that most Americans like the fact that the NSA is spying on evil terrorists and working to prevent another 9/11.
  • People finally figured out that the economy is doing incredibly well
  • The Democrats are looking really soft on Terror, with the NSA story and the Patriot Act.

This is a nice way to end the year in politics and move into the Christmas holiday

Merry Christmas everyone!

Former Baathists Claim Election Was Rigged, MSM Takes Them Seriously

Posted by Mike on December 23, 2005

The MSM seems to enjoy Iraqi elections about as much as American elections. The media is now parroting the claim of some Sunnis that the elections were rigged to favor the majority Shia. Yes, that’s right. The complaint is that the election was rigged so the majority would win. Sometimes the jokes do write themselves.

I’d also like to point out how the AP “news report” seems to be desperately throwing every piece of bad news against the wall with the hope that something will stick. The tide is turning folks. These libs are so cute when they’re out of power.

Rhode Island Christmas Tree Passes On

Posted by Mike on December 23, 2005

Rhode Island’s Christmas tree has died because some genius decided to spray a fire retardant chemical all over it. A newly implemented fire code required the tree to be sprayed. For those unfamiliar with Rhode Island, the new fire code was passed in response to the tragic Station nightclub fire.

This is an example of politicians overreacting to tragedy. Liberals believe the appropriate response to every problem is overregulation. Safety requirements were rightly reviewed after the horrific fire. About 100 people were killed. But it must be remembered that the Station nightclub fire was started by a band and club owner who thought it would be cool to use pyrotechnics in a confined space surrounded by walls covered in foam insulation.

Rhode Island leaders responded to this act of stupidity by passing burdensome regulations that go far beyond the cause of the Station fire. The results of this overreaction include small businesses going under as a result of the costs associated with installing unnecessary fire prevention equipment, churches running deficits for the same reason and Christmas trees dying. Something had to be passed after the Station fire, Rhode Island’s leaders just got carried away.
