DoubleTalk on abortion

Jack Carter, son of former president Jimmah Carter, is running for the Senate. In making his announcement, he had this to say about abortion:

“I’m pro-choice as far as a woman choosing, but I’m against abortion.”

Interesting. That sounds a lot like those in the mid-1800’s who said, “I’m pro-choice as far as slave owners releasing their slaves. But I’m against slavery.”

Expect to hear a lot more of that doubletalk from democrats in the upcoming elections.


Racism at the Winter Olympics!

At least that’s what Bryant GumBall thinks.

During a monologue on his HBO show (why does this man still have a TV show?), he complained that the lack of blacks makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention. Why a “GOP convention”? A better illustration would be the last Clinton administration.

Can you imagine the outcry if Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter complained about the lack of whites in the NBA? Or if Sean Hannity pointed out how whites were under-represented in the Rap music industry?

But Bryant GumBall makes an idiotic statement, and it is ignored by the mainstream media.

I suppose I should not be so hard on GumBall. He IS on the same network as Bill Maher.

Democrats and Funerals

First it was the Paul Wellstone memorial in Minnesota. Then it was the Rosa Parks funeral in Detroit. And today it was the Coretta Scott King funeral in Atlanta. What is it about democrats turning funerals into angry and sometimes hateful political rallies?

Today, instead of celebrating the life of Mrs. King — as President Clinton and several others did — the “reverend” Joseph Lowery and Jimmy Carter decided to use the occasion to take shots at President Bush. What amazes me is that these two men claim to be followers of Jesus. I’ve lost any respect I ever had for Jimmy Carter.

That’s not to say that it is somehow “unChristian” to criticize a president. Certainly it is not. But there is a time and a place for that. The funeral of a good woman is neither the time nor the place.

Of course the “spectators” at the funeral loved the political rhetoric by the angry democrats. President Bush was courageous to step into that den of vipers.

Makin’ Money

The three of you who read this blog may have noticed that I now have ads in the right hand column. I’ve heard some bloggers refer to this practice as “Selling out.” But you won’t hear that from me.

I call it “Making Money.” Or to be more precise, “Making money so that I can purchase a home theater sound system for my basement rec room (also known as The Man Cave).”

I made almost $1 my first day. Yep, at this rate I should have that home theater sound system by the year 2010!

Carter Steps in it (again)

I have to agree with one pundit who said that Jimmy Carter is a worse ex-president than he was president (and he was a BAD president). Since US law keeps us from giving support to terrorists, and thus keeps us from sending aid to Hamas, Carter suggests we engage in money laundering. Here’s what he said:

“If there are prohibitions — like, for instance, in the United States, against giving any money to a government that is controlled by Hamas — then the United States could channel the same amount of money to the Palestinian people through the United Nations, through the refugee fund, through UNICEF, things of that kind…

“[T]he people of Palestine — who already suffer … under Israeli occupation — will not suffer because they are deprived of a right to pay their school teachers, policemen, welfare workers, health workers and provide food for people.”

As Fishkite said, “According to Carter, this militant Islamic group has a right to pay its welfare bureaucrats with money taken from your paycheck.”

Sigh. Go away, Jimmy.
