Liberals and conservatives ought to come together to defend free speech, but one need not travel to England to find such an issue. The ugliness that is the “fairness doctrine” has raised its fascist head once again. The left, stuck with a message nobody wishes to hear, is trying to force that message down the intellectual throats of America.
The left is fueled by hate and anger. With Mr. Bush gone, their anger stems from the fact that no one will listen to their views of a thought controlled utopia. Their hatred is for the conservative radio talk that everyone does wish to listen to. Their hatred is for the Fox network that so eloquently shows the vast wasteland that is liberalism’s unfathomable social and economic philosophy by daily placing a conservative, who speaks of ideas, next to a radical leftist who calls people names. The radicals wish to silence their honest detractors. The fact they have NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NPR, MSNBC, Air America, and every major newspaper and news magazine as cheerleaders matters not. Those outlets are balanced and fair. They spew the party line, uncritically and without analysis.
It is ideas that frighten radical leftists like those now in
control of our federal government. This next two years may change
the social and economic landscape of America so greatly that due
to the wreckage of the economy and the controls placed on all of
us — the erosion of our personal freedoms — by nationalizing
banks, education, medicine and the destruction of Christian
religion — it may require generations to set things right.
Remember, Hitler was elected in Germany. Castro in Cuba and
Chavez in Venezuela. This presidential election created the
conditions for the perfect radical left’s storm. Radical leftists
controlled Congress, and now an avowed socialist is president. Be

DEFINITIONALLY NOT AN OPTION
Re: George Neumayr’s Benedict and the Abortion Holocaust-Deniers:
Being a pro-choice Catholic is like cooking kosher pork; it is
not a paradox or an oxymoron. It is simply an untenable position,
an impossibility by definition. The Catholic Church,
through its agents (i.e., priests), has a moral obligation, a
categorical imperative, to deny holy communion to those
who refuse to support such a fundamental position of the
Holy See. And since the masses are more likely to read a message
posted on a billboard than a label a pill
bottle, denying communion to politicians, be they of the right
(e.g., Mayor Giuliani) or the left (Speaker Pelosi) is a morally
just method to send a message to all: abortion is not an

CORRUPT CITY, CORRUPT RESIDENTS
Re: Chris Robling’s Take Me Back to Chicago:
Illinois is an eternal hotbed of corruption and so we should not be surprised that Roland Burris has turned into another rotten pumpkin from the magic wand of Rod Blagojevich. I remember learning in 4th grade about Paul Powell’s shoe boxes full of money and this was only the tip of the iceberg of corruption which preceded and followed those memorable payola containers.
To modernize the immorality tale we only need to note that the sewage bilging forth from Illinois runs deep to Obama. There is no doubt in my mind that the sinking of Blagojevich and Burris has more to do with Obama corruption than with their peccadilloes. Can anyone say Tony Rezko? Just like old Web Hubbell needed to be silenced so do Burris and others. Whitewater left a tidal wave of 40 convictions which Obama surely does not want to see repeated in his own tawdry affairs. So throwing Burris under the bus is the most convenient thing to do. And the lovely thing about it is that the race card cannot be effectively played.
Ultimately Obama is being Setup to be silenced and controlled
just as the Clintons were with Vince Foster. It will be
interesting to see how high the sleaze factor goes with Obama. Do
any powerful Democrats pay taxes?

CHECKIN’ IT TWICE…
Re: Mark Hyman’s Obama’s Enemies List:
I am curious if, in the case of Hillary Clinton’s current
travels, she has included reporters from the more conservative
media outlets. Or has she been able to cut them out? I saw Andrea
Mitchell on MSNBC give reports as she travels with Clinton; and
other reporter Meka Brezinski from MSNBC is with Clinton. But are
their others who are not liberal traveling with her? I would not
be surprised if Clinton did not include conservative

Machiavelli, ever perceptive, wrote this: “…when a people goes so far as to commit the error of giving power to one man so that he may defeat those whom they hate, and if this man be shrewd, it will always end in his becoming their tyrant.” Nostradamus was a prediction-piker by comparison.
If there were ever two issues custom-made for the ACLU, they are this impending Soviet-style silencing of the opposition in violation of the First Amendment, and this impending violation of Article I, Section 2, the hijack of the census and consequent savaging of our fundamental civil liberty — the right to vote for a government which fairly reflects the will of the people.
Yeah, I can hear you now — there he goes again, the ACLU…droll as a troll.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
