More honor killings

From Fox News Insider/Video

I’ve asked it before and I wish someone had an answer: Why do these people move to America if they believe that Western culture is so corrupting? And my second question: What kind of god sanctions the murder of children?

These people are sick. I can’t believe a mother would stand by and allow this to happen to her own daughters. This honor ritual garbage is alien to how we, as parents and citizens, think and feel about our children.

Are these the mainstream Muslims that we were supposed to develop an affinity for because of some reality series? Most Americans don’t care about someones religion until they start killing off wives and daughters because they behaved in a manner that the male family members didn’t like. These are the stories that turn the rest of America off to Islam.

They cannot claim to be the religion of peace and then kill their wives and daughter. Americans know this in their hearts.


Obamas war on the Catholic Church. Does he even care?

So at what point do our country’s television networks notice that Team Obama has an ideological agenda against faith-based charitable organizations, most especially the Catholic Church? Across the country, Democrats have been pushing Catholic social workers out of government cooperation. In Massachusetts, the District of Columbia and most recently in Illinois, Democrats have insisted on forcing Catholic Charities to quit its long-time assistance in providing adoption and foster-care services because they refused to place children with homosexual couples.

How militant is their bigotry? Consider: The Catholic providers offered to refer them to other agencies (as they had been doing for unmarried couples), but Gov. Pat Quinn’s government drew a line in the sand, comparing gays to the black civil rights struggle. “Separate but equal was not a sufficient solution on other civil rights issues in the past either,” government spokesman Kendall Marlowe told The New York Times. “The child welfare system that Catholic Charities helped build is now strong enough to survive their departure.”

The Conference of Catholic Bishops lost a federal contract to aid survivors of sex trafficking because Obama’s HHS bureaucrats objected that contraceptive and abortion referrals would not be provided. Steven Wagner reported for National Review that senior officials at HHS, up to and including persons in the office of Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, “overrode career staff to give federal funds to two organizations deemed by the professionals to be unqualified.”

In the 2008 election, Obama won 54% of the Catholic vote, McCain won 45%.  According to Cathnews.com and Wikipedia,  Catholics compose about 25% of the electorate.  That’s a pretty significant voting bloc, especially when you compare that to the 20% of Americans who claim  to be liberals and not all of those 20% will be voting.

So why is Obama  at war with the Catholic Church?

From CatholicVote.org:

The Obama administration is treading on dangerous water here. Catholics don’t vote as a straight bloc, but winning the Catholic vote is critical to winning elections.

from John Feehery/The Hill: “Catholics also don’t necessarily all agree on every issue. There are plenty of pro-choice Catholic voters, just as there are orthodox Catholics who agree with the pope on everything.

But what Catholic voters don’t like is the idea of the federal government attacking the church for being what it is.”

That last line is the money quote: Catholics don’t like being attacked for simply being Catholic.

Here’s why Obama has probably already lost the Catholic Vote — or why it is at least up for grabs. Exit polling from the last national elections in 2010 show, depending on which polls you consult, anywhere from a 24-point to an 18-point Catholic swing from supporting Democrats to supporting Republicans. The Associated Press claimed Catholics supported the GOP by 58%, CNN said it was 55%, and a CNN exit poll pegged Catholic support of the GOP in 2010 at 53%.

Bush beat Kerry in 2004 with only 52% of the Catholic Vote. Which means that whatever poll you consult, Obama was already at least 6 points behind Bush’s 2004 winning-level of support in 2010, and Obama’s poll numbers have only decreased since then.

Here’s the caveat: lots of Democrats didn’t go out and vote in 2010, and off-year elections are always tougher on the incumbent party in power (in 2010 that was the Democrats). Additionally, Democrats largely neglected Catholic outreach in the 2010 elections. So 2012 will be more of an uphill climb because we can count on Democrats to have learned their lesson about not courting Catholics. But the prognosis remains favorable if the current trends hold.

And when or if you have time, it is worth it to read this from the National Catholic Reporter by a man who supported Obama’s visit and address at Notre Dame in 2009.  It may turn into another blog for another day.


New GOP ad – TERRIFIC!

Pelosi On A Gingrich Presidency: “That Will Never Happen” | RealClearPolitics

Have to wonder, what does this hag think she knows that the rest of us don’t? Is this just a scare tactic by Princess Pelosi?

Can you tell that I really hate this woman?

Boston Bruins goalie wins Stanley Cup then refuses WH invite

Apparently, Tim Thomas is a fan of Glenn Beck and a Constitutionalist – two things that TheOne is not. And so after winning the coveted Stanley Cup, Thomas did not accompany his hockey team to the WH today.

On his facebook page today, Thomas said:

“I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People,” Thomas said in [his] statement.

“This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government,” he wrote.

“Because I believe this, today (Monday) I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.”

This isn’t going away as long as CAIR has the support of OWS

More protests scheduled at Lowes and WalMart from the losers that call themselves the Occupiers and their new cronies in the Council on American-Islam Relations (aka CAIR.)  So far, the protests are scheduled for St. Louis.

I side with the businesses and plan to do as much business with them as I can.  According to the socialists in this country, the problems are never with radical Islam.


Obama a little Rockwell-esque

I'm soooo in love with you!


Child rapists now considered a life style choice by Greece: eligible for disability checks

“With the United States so inextricably committed to bailing out insolvent EU nations like Greece, Alhert wonders if “American taxpayers might someday be underwriting Greek pedophiles.”

The Greek government, as unbelievable as this is, is expanding it’s list of disabled who will receive government checks to include pedophiles, arsonists, and sadomasochist, to name a few. It’s not like they aren’t in dire financial straits or anything they can add these criminals to their list of disabled who will be cashing government checks.

One more reason I’ll probably never visit NYC

I don’t read Inforwars.com because I think Alex Jones is nutty, but this story linked from Drudge is pretty interesting.

Bloomberg has outlawed everything from salt to smoking and now he is going after privacy and first amendment rights. If I lived in a city, whether it was Phoenix or NYC, I’d be packing a concealed weapon – no question about it. Both my kids have concealed carry licenses in Nevada and we encouraged it.

What Bloomberg is saying to his citizens is that “acting outside of any governmental military effort” [they] should not be allowed to protect themselves with firearms.” Well guess what, there aren’t enough cops in the country to protect every one of us. I’ll take care of myself and my kids, if it ever comes to that.
