Soylent Green is People! - Apr 7

Sorry, couldn't resist. In the wake of Charlton Heston's passing I'm going to dedicate this post to Chuck and to all those who love to eat their young. The soylent green line and the 'Get your hands off me, you damn dirty ape!' has to be two of the most memorable movie lines ever delivered.

The Destruction of Western Civilization From Within

We must remember Jesus' admonition that we must first remove the plank from our own eye before we attempt to remove the splinter in someone else's eye. Self-criticism must therefore precede the sins of others.

Politics: The GOP, Democrats and the Hollywood Left

Nobody escapes unscathed here. George W. Bush is perhaps one of the greatest lame duck presidents that America has had to endure. Bush has achieved the impossible: He has made Bill Clinton (D) look positively benign by comparison. In his article, Pat Buchanan notes:

Since 2001, he (meaning Bush - JC) has presided over the seven largest trade deficits in history, the loss of 3.5 million manufacturing jobs and the collapse of the dollar, and added but one-fifth of the private sector jobs Bill Clinton created. Gold has gone from $260 an ounce to $1,000, oil from $28 a barrel to $100.

With this in mind, shouldn't the Democrats be laughing all the way to the White House? Not so fast! With Barack Obama (the used car salesman of the year for 2008) getting hammered over his dubious association with 'Black Liberation Theology' and Hillary's obsession with power (All hail Queen Julia!) looking eerily similar to Glenn Close in 'Fatal Attraction' it's a wonder that the bitterly divided Democrats will capture any votes at all.

Our Hollywood liberal 'friends'

Does anyone in the entertainment industry know how to be a loyal dissident anymore? And why are Congressmen Jim McDermott (D-WA), David Bonior (D-MI) and Mike Thompson (D-CA) shilling for Saddam Hussein as late as 2002? Useful idiots the lot of them. Uncle Joe would be proud of such simpletons. Such an unholy alliance the Left has with all those America haters.

Israel and the 'Peace Process': No Shortage of Stupid People in the ME

There is nothing more frustrating than watching this debacle unfold before our very eyes. All evidence shows a gathering storm in the ME and that Israel's relations with Syria and Iran are growing increasingly hostile. Abbas is no moderate and Palestinian children are still being indoctrinated with hate (who unsurprisingly grow up to become hateful adults).

Our response? We defer constantly in the vain hope that through appeasement this will all go away. The jihad that America and Israel face is not based on some cultural or religious misunderstanding. It is a fundamental difference in worldview that Islam preaches to its young that creates conflict. War, death and martyrdom become unassailable virtues. There is no 'gap' between the West and the Muslim world. It's more like a bottomless abyss. The sooner our leaders take this to heart the better (and safer) we'll all be.

Abortion: The War Against Women and Children

No other industry exemplifies human sacrifice and the eating of our young better than the abortion racket. In China and India, many fetuses are being aborted simply because they're female. Not due to some physical deformity. Not because of Down's syndrome. Just for being female. Men in China and India have no hope of getting married and starting a family of their own. Now this godless secular-progressive 'ideal' has come to the Western world. As someone who admires feminine beauty I find this repulsive. So too do many other Americans. Where are all the feminists to be found to denunciate this blatant gender discrimination? Nowhere to be found. As usual it is left up to us Judeo-Christian conservative voters to give a voice to the unborn.

Doing It Right

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)

These Nepalese missionaries know what true wealth is. Praise God!

this comment puzzled me:"In China and India, many fetuses are being aborted simply because they're female. Not due to some physical deformity. Not because of Down's syndrome. Just for being female.'

so, are you saying that abortion because the baby has 'Down's syndrome' or a "physical deformity' is acceptable?

Johnny Cash said...

No I do not. I guess I didn't make myself clear on that point. Eugenics which is closely tied to abortion represents a war against the handicapped. Aborting a Downie or a deformed baby is also unacceptable. Life is precious, no matter what. Hope that clears things up for you Kathy - JC.

Thank you. I hoped that you didn't mean that you thought it was ok to abort a baby based on a prenatal diagnosis. I have a 9 yr old son with Ds. After he was born, I learned that 90% of parents who get a prenatal diagnosis of Ds for their child choose to abort...which just horrified me. Even some people who claim to be pro life will make an 'exception' in the case of a prenatal diagnosis, which makes no sense to me, because I believe as you do, that all life is precious. My son is a wonderful addition to our family (my husband and i have 6 other children) and we thank God for ALL of our children.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recently came out with a recommendation that ALL pregnant women be offered 1st trimester prenatal screening for Ds...which is just a search and destroy mission for Ds, in my opinion. Another mom and I wrote a petition to protest this recommendation...if anyone would care to sign it, here is the link
Thank you for your was very informative.

Last word (It is my blog after all) then we're done. I've signed your petition anonymously. Life begins at conception, no matter what the secular-progressives have to say. JC
