Relatively Speaking... and a note on this blog's future format/content.

All right,

Given that I have practically no readership (see post below) the format of this blog is going to be a little casual. (meaning, more personal, and, you can count on not seeing ads, or dry politcal reporting, anytime soon).

A note on the topics I'll be covering: (and a few general disclaimers)

 #1 I will be writing on Philosophy, (esp. as it integrates with Christianity) etc., but tar-babies (I have yet to come up with something better to call them than that) will be blocked. Genuine questions, even critical questions/responses are welcome, but I'm not planning on having a 2-hour posting blitz with every atheist that comes here. Students (c'est moi) have better things to be doing with their time. 

#2 Don't expect ace, up-to-the-minute reporting on every political "event"/gaffe by some major politician. Most political news in this country has become rather one-dimensional, (regardless of which party you're talking about) and I have no wish to imitate them.

Note: Given the title of this post, there was supposed to be a note on relativism (particularly moral) but I'll have to save that for the next post. (Thou shalt not write long, rambling posts is apparently the 1st Commandment of blogging)

The great nothingness that is... my readership.

This company makes hilarious antithetical counterparts to all of the "motivational posters" for businesses that you often see.  Example: A poster on blogging.

Since I seem to have exactly 0 readers* other than my family, (pretty lame for a political blog),
I thought this was rather hilarious commentary on blogging.

Nothing's the Best...

Here's a great article from the Cato Institute, arguing that the recession has gotten worse because of Government action, not better, and that a policy of stasis would have been better than some of the policies the government has enacted. (bailouts, backing risky mortgages, etc).

Islamic Global Jihad...

Here's the link to a YouTube video with some sobering and rather scary statistics on international demographics. (If they're true, that is). 

Why liberals continue to deny that Islam is a radical, non-peaceful, religion, intent on conquering the world (Like they almost did circa A.D. 1400)  is beyond me. Multi-culturalism, moral relativism, and multi-lateral foreign policy will be the death of the United States, if more of us don't start waking up, and doing something about it.

What's the Rush?

I really don't get what the big deal is about Rush Limbaugh's comment.
Liberals have said far, far, far worse things about Bush, but we've heard nary a peep from the Right. Of course, if we did, we would have had the First Amendment shoved down our throats.

(In fact, we've even seen certain liberals even expressed a desire to see Bush fail).

And really, the fact that Obama's Administration actually stooped to acknowledging, much less responding, to Rush's comment says more about Obama than it does Rush. (He's awfully sensitive, for one thing).

Maybe it's because Obama's black. But if that's so... then Racist Racist Racist is what they're being. What the heck ever happened to "I have a dream that... [people will] be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character". Hellooo, sheeple... favoring blacks is not being "color-blind".

Just the Facts, 'Bama

In view of President Obama's recent declaration that his administration's policy shall be: " scientific policy based on facts, not ideology" (which is of course patently false...it's nigh on impossible to form policy or conduct research without ideology at the very least guiding its direction... that very phrase itself reeks of ideology), I have decided to forgo my policy of posting items on older news, and instead post this. Here are a few facts for Mr. Obama:

FACT: The textbook, and the Doctor quoted below, both indicate that life begins at conception:
The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology

"Zygote: this cell results from the union of an oocyte and a sperm. A zygote is the beginning of a new human being (i.e., an embryo). Human development begins at fertilization… This highly specialized, totipotent cell marks the beginning of each of us as a unique individual."

Dr. Hymie Gordon (Mayo Clinic):
"By all criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception."

And I have more textbooks and doctors I can quote as well.

FACT: California state law defines murder as such: (And I don't think other State laws differ that much from California's).

SECTION 187-199

  1. Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being, or a fetus, with malice aforethought.


FACT: Abortion should more properly be called genocide. (Note: I am NOT saying that anyone that supports abortion is racist... just trying to associate abortion with racism).

This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated "Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member."

(The first link is above is the source for my quote).

Somehow I just know Obama's going to conveniently ignore these facts when crafting his ESR/Abortion policy.

One side note on Embryonic Stem-Cell Research: If it's so darned "promising", where's the private/state funding? Helloooo.... if it truly had any merit they would have private and/or state funding up the wazoo. It's just not promising enough to elicit private funding... which suggests a waste of Government dollars, when/if it is decided to fund it with Federal dollars.

(Of course, John Maynard Keynes said that [Government] money wouldn't be wasted even if they were "digging holes in the ground and filling them in", so I guess that's ok).

P.S. Just as an FYI, I will probably be doing good just to post one post a week, so please don't expect many posts in a short period of time. Thanks.

First Post!

Wow, first post. I'm not sure I'll be able to write anything important or, stupendous enough for this occasion, but here goes....

Just my two cents on Obama, pre-Presidency... (wonder how many times thats been used)

(I figure I probably better get the older stuff out of the way first).

I seriously doubt that anyone (in the press) was that excited about Bush before he came into office. Frankly, I was probably too little at the time to notice, but I'll bet you could hear the newscasters' sighs.

Worse than that, though, is how much Obama was doing before he was even in office. Working on a stimulus plan, holding press conferences, (complete with an "office of the president-elect" plaque, secret service guys, and everything) etc. If Bush so much as lifted his little pinky before ascending to the office, the press would've been calling for his impeachment. (yeah, I know... and before he was even President!)

A lot of this echoes a column by Ann Coulter.

(Well, ok. Some of it).
