Is ObamaCare good or bad law?. Juwannadoright gives an ethical analysis. She has actually read the bill, unlike most of our Congressmen and women.

One of the few television shows that I really like is NCIS.  The plots are creatively constructed and I enjoy the interaction of the actors in their portrayals.

In one of the episodes, Dr. Mallard (Ducky) is preparing for an examination, aided in this effort by his assistant Jimmy.  Jimmy poses the question, “What is the difference between ethics and morals?”

Ducky responds, “The ethical man knows that it is wrong to cheat on his wife; the moral man doesn’t.”  It is perhaps the briefest and most concise explanation of those two terms and the writer who penned those lines deserves congratulations

The implication is that an awareness of what is ethical logically precedes the ability to act morally.  In the absence of an understanding of ethics, moral behavior simply will not happen.

Perhaps the easiest way to describe the word ethics is to say that it is generally accepted…

Is Peyton Manning worth $96 million? 5


Is Peyton Manning worth $96 million. A very good liberal friend of mine adamantly states that no one is worth that much money? Says who, I ask? The Denver Broncos suggest that Mr. Manning is very much worth the money, or else they wouldn’t have signed a contract for that amount. Mr. Manning is certainly reviled as part of the “one percent” by members of the Left who are motivated by greed and envy. And yet Mr. Manning did so much good for Indianapolis, the city, in terms of his charitable giving and the job creation he engineered by turning them into a rabid football town … More…

Bristol Palin’s letter to President Obama 2


Bristol Palin: “Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family. He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-” so hard a baby fell out.” (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)” Why hasn’t the president demonstrated the same outrage toward Biller Maher as he has toward Rush Limbaugh? Liberal columnist for The Daily Beast put it this way: “Did you know there is a war on women? Yes, it’s true. Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, Matt Taibbi, and Ed Schultz have been waging it for years with their misogynist outbursts. There have been boycotts by people on the left who are outraged that these guys still have jobs. Oh, wait. Sorry, that never happened.” Are you sick of misogyny? Read more now … More…

“If only Catholics were Indians” 8


By Tom Quiner

Bald eagle

It is illegal to kill bald eagles (16 U.S.C. 668-668c).

The Northern Arapaho Indian Tribe threatened to sue the federal government, claiming that their rights were being violated, claiming that killing bald eagles is an important part of their religion.

The Obama administration said, okay, we’ll let you kill them, we don’t want to threaten your religious freedom. Although we consider endangered species laws to be vitally important to America, the First Amendment takes precedence.

The Catholic community claimed that their religious freedoms were being violated by the Obama Mandate which forces Catholic organizations to provide abortifacients and other items that violates their religious convictions by killing and preventing human life.

The Obama administration said “tough”

Okay, that is not their exact word, but that is the sentiment.

Indians are part of a protected class for Liberals.

Catholics aren’t.

The president of the Catholic League, Bill Donahue, pointed out the inconsistency of the application of religious freedom doctrine by Team Obama:

Pre-born bald baby

“We live in strange times. It is legal to kill a human being in utero through term—for any reason. Moreover, the president of the United States thinks it should be legal to allow a baby born alive as a result of a botched abortion to die on the doctor’s table unattended. But we can’t kill eagles that are bald. However, the Northern Arapaho can kill the birds by insisting on their religious rights. Yet when Catholics demand their religious rights, they are punished, largely because they oppose killing unborn babies.”

So here’s what we’re left with: the administration will grant a religious exemption for Indian tribes who want to kill bald eagles; but they won’t grant one for Catholic tribes who don’t want to kill pre-born babies.

For Team Obama, the killing of little bald babies is open season 365 days a year.

The world noticed us yesterday 1


I changed the world yesterday. I simply prayed in front of Planned Parenthood for God to save lives, to change hearts. I’ve done this now many times, but the number of people joining us is increasing. In the two hours I was there, I’d guess a few thousand people saw us. This Planned Parenthood clinic is on a busy street, and the traffic is heavy. Cars were honking all morning long as they drove by as a simple way to show support. It was encouraging … More…
