Georgians Stand Up, Say No To Obama: Chambliss Reelected

December 3, 2008

“When he wants to raise your taxes, when he wants to tinker with the Second Amendment, when he wants to make proposals with respect to health care that is going to take your choice of choosing your doctor away form you, then I’m going to be the 41st senator to stand up and say no.”

Those were some of the words from reelected Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia last night following the vote count.

“Tonight, the voters of Georgia have spoken,” he told supporters. “I accept the decision that has been made.”

Saxby Chambiss promised to be a firewall against the Democrats in Washington.

“You have delivered a message that a balance in government in Washington is necessary and that’s not only what the people of Georgia want, it’s what the people of America want,” Chambliss told 500 cheering supporters at a victory rally in Cobb County.

Human Right Cesspool: China

November 29, 2008

I do not understand it… for years and years and years, we see the thugs in Beijing killing political dissidents, jailing people who think for themselves and generally thumbing their nose at any semblance of human rights– and we do nothing about it.  I, for one, am perfectly willing to stop buying cheap, defective PRC-manufactured crap.

The PRC (People’s Republic of China) is nothing but a thug-run dictatorship.  I don’t want to hear about the supposed “dictatorship of the proletariate” and I don’t want to hear about supposed “egalitarianism” because neither is desirable nor moral.  Thugs deserve a proper end–one at the point of a gun or a hangman’s noose.  That’s exactly what the teapot dictators in Beijing are.

I’m ashamed of my government’s willful lack of spine when dealing with the PRC.  Then again, I’m TOTALLY in favor of severing all ties with Beijing and moving the American embassy to the REAL China…  The Republic of China is the legitimate government of the Chinese people.

I’m horrified that when I tell people that their green tea was picked using slave labor, they just blank out and do not seem to care.  We, as Americans, are proud of our support of equal rights before the law and of freedom– and we’ve spend trillions of dollars trying to help other peoples gain or maintain freedom– yet we turn a blind eye to the attoricities of the PRC thugs in Beijing.

Pope Critical of American Culture

April 18, 2008

 By E. J. Dionne, Jr.

.
The most jarring word that Pope Benedict XVI is using during his visit to the United States is “countercultural.” The American sense of that term is shaped by the 1960s: free love, drugs, hippies, rock music and rebellion. Needless to say, that’s not what Benedict is preaching.
.
That word is the key to understanding how Benedict’s message runs crosswise to conventional liberalism and conservatism. Benedict came to the United States as a quiet but forceful critic of “an increasingly secular and materialistic culture,” as he put it during yesterday’s Mass. Almost any American who paid attention to his sermon had to be uncomfortable because all of us are shaped by the very forces he was criticizing.
.
Benedict directly challenged an assumption so many Americans make about religion: that it is a matter of private devotion with few public implications.
.
Not true, said the pope. “Any tendency to treat religion as a private matter must be resisted,” he told the country’s Catholic bishops on Wednesday. “Only when their faith permeates every aspect of their lives do Christians become truly open to the transforming power of the Gospel.”
.
That is a demanding and unsettling standard for the right and the left alike. Benedict asked a pointed question: “Is it consistent for practicing Catholics to ignore or exploit the poor and the marginalized, to promote sexual behavior contrary to Catholic moral teaching, or to adopt positions that contradict the right to life of every human being from conception to natural death?”

No U.N. Funding for China

September 8, 2007

WASHINGTON (AP) – For the sixth consecutive year, the Bush administration has decided to withhold funding from the U.N. Population Fund, saying the agency contributes to China‘s “coercive abortion” program.

The administration decision was disclosed in a letter from Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte sent to lawmakers on Thursday, according to a copy of the document seen Friday. Congress had appropriated $34 million for the program, but gave President Bush the authority to decline to spend the money.

China has denied using any coercive measures in its population control ….
