Ken, name-calling is disrespectful.
But there is a fine line between thinking we are responsible for the morality of others and thinking that we are responsible for standing up for the morality that everyone should live by. Christians evangelize because the Lord told us to share the "Good News." But evangelizing is not the same as shoving it down everyone's throat whether they want it or not. Our society is pluralistic; thus, I must evangelize (the Lord commands me to), and I must respect (the Lord commands me to).

So, why did Bush not use the "chemical weapons" argument for invading Iraq? Were the facts about that not clearer than the WMDs?

But, this is only one side of the problem. The other side has those failing public schools on it. What are we doing about them? Is it a case of having, say, only X number of dollars to put to education and we'd rather spend them sending "some" students to better schools than 'waste' those dollars on the failing schools which will continue to fail anyway? The one case you cite of the mother's son in Louisiana gets helped "out of the failing system" but how many are left in it? Is "save one every now and then while letting all the others sink in the quagmire" the best we can do?

What is scarier than this is Where are the highest ranking military advisors? Are they all hiding under the table, afraid that if they tell him what they need to tell him, for fear that his thugs will leak to the press details about their own private affairs and ruin their careers?
One of the chapters in Mark Twain's "Letters from the Earth" has a very business-like angel writing a very business-like letter to someone who (on Earth) prayed. This reply points out that the sincere aspiration from the heart always takes precedence over public prayers for show. It's not only a good laugh; it is truly a good sermon.
Well, we've had Rev. Moon's excellent newspapers for several years now. AJA is the new owner of a "news" outlet that, even if we succeed in boycotted its sponsors until the paper loses money, the owners have money to burn and will burn it to keep the portal open for when they really need it. I hope we have enough people who will constantly watch the channel so that we can stay aware of what they are saying, My guess is that they will be trying to influence American Muslims toward jihad, albeit in a diplomatic and veiled way, so that other people won't notice. Whatever else is true, I'm sure that we are stuck with them. God help us.

You make the debate degenerate. Please, do better than this.
¿Has it occurred to anyone else that Rahm Immanuel is on the same side as Alinsky, Obama, and the unions? I smell a conspiracy here to create the image of a (false) controversy among these liberals, hoping that the UN incursion will - while not producing anything - at least will create another diversion from the real problems that the administration hopes we will not pay attention to, at least not until after the mid-term elections. By then, they can manufacture other diversions for us gullible conservatives to tilt our righteous lances at. The dire straits of the Chicago schools is just the current crisis Rahm doesn't want to waste.
sub "if" for "is".
