The Catholic Church is quite clear that life is sacred from conception to natural death...they are consistent, and I respect that. I see many people quote the Catholic Church in ways that suit their need at the time (many use the Bible in the same way)...what are your thoughts on abortion, Jim? Consistent with the Catholic Church? What about birth control? Consistent with the Catholic Church?

Being merciful and loving our neighbor does not mean we cannot expect justice to be carried out. When someone kills an innocent human being, justice must be served. Loving our neighbor must include he or she who died suddenly and violently when that person should still be alive. Loving our neighbor does not mean we turn a blind eye to a terrible misdeed, and atonement is needed. Should capital punishment be quick and painless--I would say so. Should we say capital punishment is NEVER warranted? I would say no. I think we should go to victims' families to get an answer for that. What do you think a fitting sentence is for a serial killer who tortures his victims? A person who kills multiple children in cruel and inhuman ways? Should he get the same sentence as someone who kills just one person? These are very tough questions, and I believe society has a need for the ultimate punishment, or we believe innocent life means nothing, and the killer has all the rights. I think maybe abortionists should double as executioners...
I am glad Guy mentioned the incident with President Bush. He was roundly criticized, and the left nearly had a nervous breakdown because he finished reading the book to the young children. They act as though the president was supposed to jump up and act like a chicken with his head cut off--as if that would not alarm young children. But NOW, it's Obama...and that's diffffferent...
We had the tv on Fox in our house, and they were showing the president's remarks. When he said they were still trying to determine if there were Americans on board, I turned to my teenagers and said--What he means is--if no Americans are on board, then we will be mad...if Americans were on board, then we will be realllllly mad. That man is a savant...only not all that smart.
The president and Congress--with their ideas--expect those of us in America to exist on less money. They should have to do the same.
Did Holder manage to ignore the entire Bush presidency? For Pity's sake! Mr. Bush was treated terribly by the opposition--much worse than Mr. Obama is being currently treated. Did they think Obama's skin color would protect him from controversy? Did they believe the hype--he was just so much smarter and more able than everyone else? The man who voted present most of the time proves to be a failed leader...who woulda thunk?
I wonder what the left would be saying if the teacher had given the assignment to write about the economic advantages of slavery. It is critical thinking...but I think they would be frothing at the mouth and behaving in a very scary manner

Quit Playing Politics with Kids

Using children as battering rams is what these people do. I expect better of you, Chavez. If people are not willing to personally sponsor these kids, they should shut up. Not one tax dollar should go to them. Period!

The Petulant President

I was thinking the same thing. The press was unkind--he did not throw a fit. Congress did not go along with him all the time--he did not throw a fit. He was lampooned and people implied he was not intelligent--he did not throw a fit. That man was dignified, and he always conducted himself as an adult...the man in there now--not so much. His wife wasn't even proud to be American until Baraky was elected...what does that say? I am proud to be an American, I love this country, but that man cannot leave the White House soon enough to please me!!!

Once again, children are being used as battering rams to get the utmost in sympathy. Here is the problem--how much money are we giving to those countries? Why not shut off the tap and tell them we will no longer import their problems. IF we have to take care of those children here--why send another dime to their inept and corrupt leaders? I am tired of people speaking in politically correct terms to claim those of us who don't want these problems sent to our country are somehow xenophobic or that we are nativists. Send the skilled, send the ones who will not depend on government assistance, send the ones who will be an asset. Please stop the flow of those who will be used by corporations and the rich to line their own pockets.
