HILLYER FOR LIFE
Re: Quin Hillyer’s Monstrously Anti-life:
Thank you for speaking up about the monstrous act of abortion. I hope you continue to write and write and write until every person who reads your words understands what abortion is and what it does.
Every year for the past five years I, as a speaker for Silent No More, have tried to tell people what it does to the mother.
I would like to encourage you to think of the next logical step of a national leader who believes abortion is a “right.”
What if this national leader appoints Supreme Court justices who believe that abortion is a “right.” Will they not also believe that “assisted suicide” is a “right” also?
And if those Justices rule that assisted suicide is a “right” in all 50 states, who will decide who lives and dies, and why? We will have euthanasia centers for genocide in every large city and in places where the media will never report. So, please keep reporting because the time has come for us to lay down our lives to protect the innocent.
Only a miracle will turn this country into a Culture of Life now.
Fortunately the One who creates a human soul and infuses that
soul into the freshly conceived child, is also the Author of
miracles and of Life. The human soul has three faculties; the
will, the intellect and the “heart,” not the physical heart, but
the heart that loves and feels. Let us use all of the faculties
of our souls to do our part to bring about a Culture of Life,
even now, even now.

NEVER SAW A TAX CUT HE DIDN’T LIKE
Re: William Tucker’s How Nuclear Will Revive:
Rather than creating a ‘Cap and Trade’ bureaucracy why not make ALL ‘non-carbon’ energy source profits non-taxable?
1. It eliminates the special interest groups that would be
created by Cap and Trade that will purchase powerful friends in
high places (think ACORN like groups on industrial
2. It reduces our dependency on foreign oil by bringing more power creation on shore
3. It takes the government out of the role of guessing which ‘green’ energy will be the winner
4. It cuts taxes in a key sector (power generation) that will be needed for the US to re-industrialize (the rest of the world will one day stop selling us flat panel TV’s for increasingly useless dollars, at which point we needed to make things here and that requires cheap power)
5. It reduces air pollution and throws a bone to the environmental wackos.
6. It is so simple even Republicans can explain it on TV!!
7. All tax cuts are good tax cuts!

There is something that has been bothering me for several months now. As we all know, the liberals always claim to “support the troops” while simultaneously undercutting whatever mission they happen to be engaged in. So the hypocrisy has always been self-evident. But I think it is actually worse than that. I think the worst insult that the liberals inflict upon our armed forces is the ongoing, daily failure to acknowledge that they actually WON the Iraq War. We conservatives should not let this insult stand. Saddam is long dead, as are his fun-loving boys, so his dynastic pretensions have been quite obliterated. The country is currently less violent than it probably ever has been, the government there functions about as well as it ever has, and there is absolutely no doubt that the people of Iraq are far freer than they ever have been. Instead of an implacable terrorist-harboring enemy in that part of the world, we have a government that at a minimum wishes us no harm.
Is there some element of victory missing here?
To that end, I would urge conservatives to pick some meaningful
date, e.g., the date of the last Iraqi elections, or when the
first major combat brigade is rotated home, and celebrate our
victory. Call it V-I day, or whatever. Yes, it is true that war
is awful and is not to be glorified. But we owe it to our troops,
their families, and particularly to those who fell there to
at least acknowledge that they did a magnificent job and won this

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
