We Win, They LoseThe Wit and Wisdom of Three Guys Named Brent, Mark and Mike

Click here for a good article which begins:
Americans should not only have a "sober contemplation of our blessings" this Thanksgiving but particularly reflect on the divine favor of liberty we enjoy, an emeritus general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Tuesday.
Elder Morrison also said order and liberty have to exist in harmony, and tension between the two has caused much of the bloodshed throughout history.
Contrary to common belief, America's love of liberty was planted long before the Declaration of Independence, he said, saying Britain's own revolution of the mid-1700s set the stage for the American revolution.
"The work of securing and upholding liberty is never finished," Elder Morrison said.
The U.S. Constitution was only designed for a moral and religious people and will work in no other environment, he said. Those who truly love liberty are prepared to pay the price, no matter what it is, he added.
Offering charity and hope to each other — both in good and bad times — is necessary if we are to be worthy of liberty, he advised.
Declaration of Independence Banned
What a joke. The Claremont Institute points out that this directly conflicts with a California law which requires that students "shall read and be taught" the Declaration, as well as other founding documents. Nice.

Click here for an article from the Boston herald on the Peterson conviction. It states:
Peterson, 32, was convicted of one count of first-degree murder for killing his wife, Laci, and one count of second-degree murder in the death of Connor Peterson, the son she was carrying - crimes prosecutors said were part of a cold-blooded plot to escape marriage and fatherhood for the freewheeling single life.
Later, the article states:
Four months later, her headless body and the remains of her fetus were discovered along the shoreline about 90 miles from the couple's Modesto home - not far from where her husband claims he was fishing alone the day of her disappearance.
So which is it -- a son or a fetus? Geez, these pro-choice clowns look stupid in these situations.
A post at World Magazine Blog noted this same thing.

'Mystery Candidate' Wins Without Campaign
This is pretty funny. A guy who no one has seen won his campaign for the school board. The story begins:
Steve Rocco didn't file a candidate statement or mount a campaign for the school board. He's unknown to teachers and the district and only barely known to his neighbors. Nonetheless, the man being called a "mystery candidate" easily beat an opponent who is active, and relatively well known, in the Orange Unified School District. Now all that's left is to find him.
"Absolutely nobody, but nobody has seen this guy," said Paul Pruss, a middle school teacher and the president of the union. "The whole thing is just bizarre."

This lady deserves a permanent link...
and so she gets one. I've added The Dawn Patrol to our permanent link section. For a sample, check out this post on Planned Parenthood:
Mental health, like everything else on Planned Parenthood's planet, is about "choice." You make "choices," and then other people have to accept them. If you're unhappy, it's because other people have not "respected" your "choice." Never does it enter their universe that people could possibly be unhappy because of wrong choices—like choosing to be sexually active outside of marriage, or choosing to be an active homosexual or bisexual, or choosing to raise children outside of marriage.

Antle v. Arlen
One of my favorite writers, James W. Antle III, weighs in against Arlen Specter for chairman of the Judiciary Committee, refuting Hugh Hewitt's analysis. Says Antle:
Arlen Specter, given his ideology, judicial philosophy, record of unreliability and recent public statements that suggest his tenure over the next six years will be more of the same, is simply an inappropriate Senate point man for President Bush's judicial appointments. Republicans should consequently choose someone else - John Kyl, who is next in line behind Specter, would be a perfectly fine alternative - for this vital position.
As much as I like Hugh Hewitt, I gotta side with Antle on this one. The judges are (unfortunately) too important.

Ensuring abortion "for all future females"?
Check out this comment (scroll down, it's the second comment) at a blog called Bush v. Choice:
I cannot believe the election results - feel like I have been kicked in the stomach. Are we never going to know that a woman's choice is safe for our daughters, granddaugters, and all future females?
I wonder if this woman caught the irony of her comment.
I'll bet if someone said to her "Are we never going to know that the right to life is safe for our daughters, granddaugters, and all future females?" she'd think they were very small minded. After all, the right ot have an abortion is much more important than the right to live.

This is pretty funny...
Check out the second comment left in response to this post from the ladies at feministing.com ( a cool blog, you should check it out):
I'm really disappointed in Kerry, but at least we put up one heck of a fight. I'm in college, and our composition teacher is giving us the class off today in mourning, as well. Black armbands, anyone?
Now THAT is pretty funny...
