China’s on Fire!

Posted by Ryan on April 24, 2007

China will surpass the evil insidious, polluting juggernaut that is the United States of America in greenhouse and other pollutant emissions this year!  They were supposed to pass us in 2010, but their economy is on fire and beat the evil expectations.  What I looooove about China is that they are exempt from the Kyoto Protocol because they’re “developing!”  So pollution doesn’t matter to the Kyoto crowd, just historical advantage.  Kyoto’s a joke and this shows it further!

Democrats who want teenagers to have sex

Posted by Sal on April 24, 2007

Deval Patrick, the Premier of the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, has decided that the state will no longer apply for a federal grant which is used to promote Abstinence Education in high schools.  The State of MA currently receives that grant (and has since 1998) and since 2003 has used it as part of an abstinence-education program, taught alongside what the Boston Globe labels as “Comprehensive Sex Education”, a.k.a. “How to not get pregnant and avoid STDs (sometimes)”.  The reasoning is that supposedly according to a federal study, Abstinence education does not reduce the number of teenagers who have sex.  The Drive-by media is heralding this as a victory for contraceptive-based sex-ed, and the death knell for Abstinence Education in America. 

However, The Washington Times points out a major flaw in the study.  The study was conducted of 16 and 17 year old teenagers who received Abstinence education when they were 11 and 12, but not since.  The average age of first intercourse was 14 years, 9 months.  What this may show is that the abstinence message needs more reinforcement as children get older, rather than the fact that the abstinence message does not work. 

That’s not good enough, however for Premier Patrick.  Abstinence education must be banned!

Take That, Harry Reid

Posted by Sal on April 24, 2007

A U.S. Marine stationed in Ramadi, Iraq, wrote an email to a friend in which he lambasted the Democrats and Harry Reid for saying that the war was lost.  This Marine points out how the situation in Ramdi has dramatically improved, and has a few choice words for the Majority Leader.  Additionally, Army reservists from Harry Reid’s own State of Nevada beg to differ with his assertion, and blaming politicians for tying the hands of the military in fighting this war.  What the Democrat’s don’t realize is that they can’t support the troops while undermining the mission.  The troops themselves don’t buy into that theory, so why should we?  By making comments such as he did, Harry Reid and the Democrat’s are making it harder for the troops to do their job effectively.  Their words hurt morale and embolden the terrorists.  The terrorists are on the warpath right now, knowing that if they can last just a little longer, they just might win the war along with the help of their accomplices in Congress.
