Charged with the crime of defending himself and others

Pharmacist Who Shot Man Robbing Store Charged With Murder

It seems to me he should have pistol-whipped him after the clip was spent.

But, now, in the age of Obama, the right course would have been to engage in a fruitful dialogue with no pre-conditions. While watching others around him being molested and then he himself assaulted.

Thank God, there are still juries in America, so that this man will have a chance.

It's For The Children !!!!!

It is impossible for those of a liberal bent to fully separate themselves from fascism.

Now that the American electorate have decided that the empty rhetoric of "Hope and Change" is just what they really want in government, it is time for them to either learn how completely stupid they were and wake up, or, to drag us along with their insidious plans.

Here it comes. From the mouth of another Chicagoan, no less.
Spunky has the best wrap-up
In order to qualify for Obama's stimulus money, every state must develop "data infrastructure" mechanisms to track students' education from cradle to college. In his testimony before Congress, Sec. of Ed. Arne Duncan, said
"...states must build data systems that can track student performance from one year to the next, from one school to another, so that those students and their parents know when they are making progress and when they need extra attention. This information must also be put in the hands of educators so they can use it to improve instruction."
This all sounds so noble and good. Who doesn't want to "improve instruction?" But do we really need a federally mandated database to help parents know when their student is making progress?

Whenever you hear them say they are putting the best interests of the children first, reach for your wallet, and get to shelter.

Awful Parents ? maybe. Awful inconsistencies ? YES

So, there's this couple in Minnesota and they believe that they should be able to determine the best "life" for their child. After having consulted with a Dr and following his prescribed treatment, they have decided to stop and to instead go their own way and follow their own path. They have decided that they would rather not have this greatly promised extended time with their child.

They have decided to go to an abortionist in order to painfully and horrendously exterminate their child.

Oh, but, you will never hear of any Judge getting involved to stop this neglectful and dangerous act.

However, there is another couple in Minnesota that have been found to be doing something far worse. It must be considered worse, a Judge has ordered it stopped - they have decided to stop the chemotherapy treatments on their son. In that case, a Judge most certainly has stepped in to over-ride their parental authority.

Have they chosen the better path ? That is uncertain. What is certain is the judge that got involved, has chosen a bad path. One filled with pitfalls and quicksand.

Have I found a textbook definition of hypocrisy ? I believe so.

Truer Words Have Yet To Be Spoken

Thank You Archbishop Burke.
“there is no element of the common good, no morally good practice, which a candidate may promote and to which a voter may be dedicated, which could justify voting for a candidate who also endorses and supports the deliberate killing of the unborn, euthanasia or the recognition of a same-sex relationship as a legal marriage. The respect for the inviolable dignity of innocent human life and for the integrity of marriage and the family are so fundamental to the common good that they cannot be subordinated to any other cause, no matter how good it may be.”

It is truly a shame of historical proportions that it even needed to be said.

It is a greater shame that it hadn't been said sooner.

Now, where does that fit into your BS full-of-lies liberal Catholicism ?

Come back to the Church Kmiec-ians. There is a reason that Reconciliation is a Sacrament. It is needed by us all.

The comedy stylings of Wanda Sykes, comedienne ?

While there was little humor in her remarks, at the White House correspondents gala event, there was a great deal of insight.

Insight into her way of thinking. By thinking, I mean feeling.

There can clearly be no thinking involved when she attacks one very specific man who has gone on record stating that he has no animosity toward anyone based on their sexual proclivities. Yet, that is what she did. In a very pointed manner.

She also gave us a good look at how she feels about another important point in LGBTQ activism. She did it in the very same “joke”, too, without a single pause.

“Dick Cheney, oh my God, he's a scary man, scares me to death. I tell my kids, I says, "Look, if two cars pull up, and one has a stranger, and the other car has Dick Cheney, you get in the car with the stranger."”

Everyone is entitled to having kids. No heterosexuality required. No Marriage required. Hell, no seeming ability to support the kids required. Yeah, it is all about the agenda.

Just in case you might be mislead into thinking that she is a comedienne and I just wasn’t amused by this particular joke, I offer this gem
People say, 'Well don't you regret not having kids?' And I go, 'No, not really.' And then if they keep asking, I always say this, 'Well, you know, maybe I'll adopt.' But I don't mean that. It's just something I say to make me sound like a nicer person.

There are more but, I have to wipe the tears from my eyes and let my side stitch subside, so you go on ahead without me.

As Vox points out, even Barack Obama has better writers,
"During the second 100 days, we will design, build and open a library dedicated to my first 100 days."

"My next 100 days will be so successful, I will complete them in 72 days. And on the 73rd day, I will rest."

Why is it so hard to read the whole story first ?

When a Bishop speaks out on any subject he does so in one of two capacities; he is either speaking as a citizen, solely for himself, or, he is speaking as a successor to the original 12 Apostles of Jesus, therefore as the leader of his flock. The amazing thing about the flock he is to shepherd is that it includes those that have no idea they are members, even those that reject all that for which he stands.

Are all Bishops excellent examples of The Shepherd ? No. They are, much like ourselves, shown to be: Lacking in the stewarding of the planet. Lacking in the guardianship of our children. Lacking in the keeping of our brothers. Those facts, however, do not diminish their calling to shepherd. Neither does it diminish their calling to preach the Gospel, as was once so brilliantly stated, using words if necessary.

In the great State of Louisiana, the Bishops Conference is concerned about some legislation that was to be introduced regarding immigrants. When legislation is proposed, it usually is designed with only the intended effects in mind. The Bishop’s of LA have a duty to their flock to speak about the unintended consequences of actions as much as the intended bad results of actions. Keep in mind that to a Catholic Bishop, EVERYONE in the boundaries of his Diocese is in his flock-it is his solemn duty to care for each and every one of them. Not, as is the case of a Legislator, as far as the next election is concerned, but in all manners of life, insofar as the next life is concerned.

Those things are too much for some to accept, and far too much for some to tolerate, especially when they overrreact before they understand the Bishops' reasons.

Maybe, next time, Laura, you will read the whole story before you overreact.

UPDATE: When I first went to Pursuing Holiness, it was to read Mindless Bag Of Hormones Spouts Off, so, I should have known she was inclined to overstate a point, or two. But, after reading Obama: Sorry for stopping you from killing any more filthy Jooos, Germany!, I am now certain that overreacting, without reading the story,(or is it without comprehending the story) is her schtick. I can hardly wait to see how much traction her reasoning gets. 'Cause we all know that without fire-bombing Dresden back to the stone-age the gas chambers wouldn't have been stopped. Anyhow, a great site to hang out in, but, wear your gloves so your knuckles don't get scraped.

In just 100 Days - it's all fixed !

Everything wrong with the social fabric has been fixed !

That tax code so convoluted that neither Tim Geithner nor Charles Rangel (and a cast of thousands), got it figured out ?


That economic trouble inherited by this administration ?


I know there were more problems, but, now that they are all fixed, I cannot remember what they were.

So, now it is time to solve all that ails America
