BREAKING NEWS...Dems win approval of health bill in committee

Dems win approval of health bill in committee

Will someone who is much more knowledgeable than me, please tell me what happens next...

All I know is when I read about this, my blood ran cold. Just that much closer to government controlled health care. (Oh, and did I tell you I am cancelling my AARP membership?)

It is late and I am hitting the hay. Maybe tomorrow I will learn the details of what happened tonight.

Introducing Obama's choice for "Regulatory Czar"...

Meet Cass Sunstein

{I realize the hot topic this evening will be B.O.'s desperate push on TV tonight for so called, "Health Care Reform", but I couldn't let this tidbit go by...}

While watching Glen Beck tonight, he pointed out some things about B.O.'s pick for "Regulatory Czar", which according to The Center for Consumer Freedom's David Martosko, a Sunstein critic, "He {the regulatory czar} is the gatekeeper between the president and the secretaries," he said, noting that "as a regulatory czar, he won't be a judge or a legislator, so he cannot make laws. ... What he can do is nudge the departments in the direction of his philosophy," which is very much in line with "hard core animal rights zealots." {AMONG OTHER THINGS...}

Please read the article here:

Apparently, Mr. Sunstein is a huge animal rights activist, who believes animals have the right to file lawsuits in American courts! Further, according to the article, "Writer Kyle Smith suggested Sunstein threatens to tweak libel laws for the Internet and make online writers, particularly bloggers, legally responsible for falsehoods and rumors that get generated in cyberspace.
"Sunstein calls for a 'notice and take down' law that would require bloggers and service providers to 'take down falsehoods upon notice,' even those made by commenters -- but without apparent penalty," Smith wrote. "How long would it take for a court to sort out the truth? (Presidential daughters) Sasha and Malia will be running for president by then. Nobody will care anymore. But it will give politicians the ability to tie up their online critics in court."


Also, according to Glen Beck this evening, Mr. Sunstein co-authored a book with Richard Thaler titled, "Nudge". A review I found about it reads as follows... "This is an engaging, informative, and thoroughly delightful book. Thaler and Sunstein provide important lessons for structuring social policies so that people still have complete choice over their own actions, but are gently nudged to do what is in their own best interests. Well done." link

Again, interesting...

Further, according to Beck, Mr. Sunstein seems to be an admirer of one Peter Singer who wrote "Animal Liberation". According to Wikipedia (hey, don't anybody shoot me, now...if that site isn't credible enough for you, at least investigate on your own LOL!) "He argues that animals should have rights based on their ability to feel pain more than their intelligence. In particular, he argues that while animals show lower intelligence than the average human, many severely retarded humans show equally diminished, if not lower, mental capacity, and intelligence therefore does not provide a basis for providing nonhuman animals any less consideration than such retarded humans".

But what is CHILLING to me is his views on human life and abortion...

"Singer argues that newborns similarly lack the essential characteristics of personhood — "rationality, autonomy, and self-consciousness'— and therefore "killing a newborn baby is never equivalent to killing a person, that is, a being who wants to go on living."

Also, "Singer classifies euthanasia as voluntary, involuntary, or non-voluntary".


Is this man serious?????? LINK

This all reminds me of a blog post I entered on my original blog back in January of this year. You might want to take a look at it. Obama and his co-horts seem to be tottering on the brink of population control here...what early progressives fondly referred to as "Eugenics".

Inside one of the links in my post is this from The United Nations Population Fund: "Radio Australia reported on 21 November that Vietnam's government is considering a return to a two child policy in an attempt to control population growth." link

Seems like B.O., as a progressive, wants to surround himself with people who want to get back to the roots of their movement...

It has been awhile, but I am back...

It has been quite awhile since I posted on this blog. My daughter's engagement (which you can read about here) has taken my mind off politics for a couple weeks. (But my mind is definitely NOT off religion...not a day goes by that God doesn't enter my thoughts!)

I had decided when I did get back to posting here, I was going to come at it with a new slant. I still plan on doing that. But in the meantime, I did want to post about this.

I am sure most people reading this blog also read World Net Daily, which is one of my favorite sources of news. If you do, then you probably saw the article about Walter Cronkite having a "radical agenda". This is the first I had heard of that. Really, all I knew about him was the way he cried when he told us President Kennedy was dead. And having him in our living rooms, watching together as we landed on the moon (still haven't made my mind up on that one. Sorry.) Watching both events in glorious black and white TV...I can still see his face. He was a dinner guest every evening in our home as we ate our pot roast while watching images of Vietnam. (How did we keep from going mad??????)

So, imagine my suprize when I read the words spoken by Mr. Cronkite in 1989. Here is an excerpt from the WND article:

"After leaving his position with CBS, Cronkite's political activism and offbeat ideas had no restraints.

In 1989, Cronkite spoke to a dinner organized by People for the American Way, a group founded by Norman Lear. His candid politics surprised even that audience.

"I know liberalism isn't dead in this country," he said. "It simply has, temporarily we hope, lost its voice."

The article further states,

In 1999, he appeared at the United Nations to accept the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award from the World Federalists Association. He told those assembled, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, that the first step toward achieving a one-world government – his personal dream – is to strengthen the United Nations.

"It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace," he said. "To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order."
his acceptance speech, Cronkite added, "Pat Robertson has written in a book a few years ago that we should have a world government, but only when the Messiah arrives. He wrote, literally, any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the devil. Well, join me. I'm glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan."

Wow! Who knew? Who knew Walter was a "New World Order" type of guy? I sure didn't. Back then, politics held no interest for me. These days, the Bible and world events and the people who shape them go hand in hand...

If you haven't, I suggest you read the article. It was a real "eye-opener" for me.

Independence Day, 2009

Have been very preoccupied as of late, but couldn't let the 4th go by without a post. Found this video on "The Grouch at Right Truth"s blog...and stole it for my own.


God Bless!
