Culture of Death on the Retreat? I thought this was an interesting article. In leftist California, there were more people opposed to the killing of unborn babies out protesting than those in favor of killing unborn babies. Notice how leftists behave themselves. They want to be seen as the good guys, but instead they come off as bloodthirsty maniacs who use slogans in place of thought and repetitive chanting in place of logical debate.
I ask all of you to consider the following. Those of us who want to protect life are not anti-choice, we are anti-murder. We all know where babies come from, how they are created. There is a choice whether or not to engage in that activity.
The point is, we do not know for sure when the fetus becomes a distinct person with a soul. I am not here to tell you that human life begins at conception. I'm here to point out that we have no way to know that it doesn't. In such ignorance, we must, if we are moral, err on the side of caution. If you were going to demolish a building, you would not bush the button on the detonator until you had confirmed that there was no one inside. Being pretty sure that no one is inside simply won't cut it. The same reasoning should apply to unborn babies. If you don't know whether you are ending human life, but the possibility exists that you could be, the moral course would be to stay your hand.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Abortion foes from all over the West converged on San Francisco for the second Walk for Life, an event designed to show that opposition to abortion exists even in the liberal Bay Area.
"We want people to know that there is another kind of voice in San Francisco," said Eva Muntean, a San Franciscan and co-chairwoman of the Walk for Life.
That voice was, by design, mostly silent. Marchers were urged to leave photos of aborted fetuses and signs equating abortion to murder at home. And at a rally before the march, they were urged to ignore those who might try to goad them into an argument.
"We ask you to hold your tongues today," Muntean said. "This isn't a day for interaction."
[T]he anti-abortion movement is gaining ground in California, with forces narrowly failing last fall to get a ballot measure passed requiring parental consent before minors could get an abortion. They are preparing to gather signatures next month that could lead to another vote in November.
Abortion rights advocates, concerned that the Bay Area movement has become too complacent, showed up en masse to protest the march. And they took a different approach. Although they were easily outnumbered by the marchers, the pro-choice supporters were loud and confrontational.
Many jeered and taunted the marchers, while others stood along the street, waved wire hangers and chanted slogans. _____________________________________________

Are Republicans for Smaller Government? Remember the Contract with America and the Republican Revolution of 1994? I had such high hopes then. It seems, however, that Republicans can be just as bad as Democrats when it comes to government spending.
Consider this article. It examines how the so-called Republican control of Congress is turning into a triumph of the political left... the Democrats are only upset that it isn't they who are accomplishing it. _____________________________________________
New Years Resolution 2006: Post more on my blog. Sorry about the lack of posts. It's not that I haven't been reading and forming opinions, it's just that I have very little free time.
Recent news that I've found interesting:
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
