Murder Gets a Pass
This is a must-read story.  While I was younger I supported the right of a woman to select abortion as an outlet. I think my opinion was such because I was young, ignorant and just a selfish person who ignored the rights of a second human being (the child). As I aged, I have dramatically shifted my position and I now believe that a life, regardless of age, deserves the right of protection. This case reinforces my position. 

The physician will most likely face murder charges because the adult woman died from the heavy doses of painkillers and anesthesia. Kill a woman and face murder charges but kill hundreds of unborn children and that isn't a crime? There is a serious deficiency in morals/values with the supporters of abortion. It doesn't take much more than a few glances at the pictures in this story to recognize the grave wrongness of abortion.

Ron Paul writes in his book The Revolution: A Manifesto: "Whether it is war or abortion, we conceal the reality of violent acts through linguistic contrivances meant to devalue human lives we find inconvenient. Dead civilians become "collateral damage," are ignored altogether, or are rationalized away on the Leninist grounds that to make an omelet you have to break eggs. People ask an expectant mother how her baby is doing. They do not ask how her fetus is doing, or her blob of tissue, or her parasite. But that is what her baby becomes as soon as the child is declared to be unwanted. In both cases, we try to make human life into something less than human, simply according to our will."

Through the principles of individual dignity we need to guarantee that our laws do not fringe upon basic, civil human rights. Without this we'll not develop as a civilization. The fundamental challenge is to have people change their view of an unborn to an actual human being and not a potential human being. This is not a religious perspective but basic biology.

This would be amusing but it insults janitors.

Tower Dogs

This job would be interesting but the pay is hardly worth it. Approx. $13/hr for beginners and $20/hr for experienced climbers. Yeeesh.

The Mount Merapi Eruption

Amazing pictures. Check it out...



While watching tv with the kids, I remembered this great quote from Alfred Hitchcock:

[introducing commercials at the end of the show] I hope you have enjoyed our program. Seeing a murder on television can help to work off one's antagonisms. And if you haven't any antagonisms, these commercials will give you some.

UN Calls for International Taxes

UN Calls for Taxes

Notice it isn't "global warming" now but "global change". The US should completely disassociate itself from the United Nations. The arrogance of the organization, who feel like they should tax for their questionable belief system, is overwhelming. 

Here is an idea...instead of using coercion through taxation, why not allow human freedom and economic freedom be an essential part of the funding for global change? Let people elect to distribute their money to the cause. Anyone who is supportive of the United Nations and its position on global change will freely donate to the cause.

If Only...

If only the Democrats would have been as creative in their election campaigns. Something along the lines of "Jesus had healthcare insurance" certainly would have been as convincing as Jesus was HIV positive.


Can Paul Successfully Take on the Fed?

Fed Commits to Creating $600 billion

While attention for most was on the elections, the Fed announced it will increase the money supply by another $600 billion.

When the Fed increases the money supply with money and credit it creates out of thin air, it causes economic problems. The value of the dollar decreases and therefore we all become poorer.

Ron Paul explains, "By increasing the money supply of money, the Federal Reserve lowers the value of every dollar that already exists. If the supply of Mickey Mantle baseball cards were suddenly to increase a million-fold, each individual card would become almost valueless. The same principle applies to money: the more the Fed creates, the less value each individual monetary unit possesses. When the money supply is increased, prices rise - with each dollar now worth less than before, it can purchase fewer goods than it could in the past."
