Victory Act by any other name smells like a police state
John Ashcroft and Orrin Hatch are big-government, police-state neocons. I look forward to opposing them and their draconian legislation if ever elected to congress.
" Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, reportedly plans to introduce legislation in September to further expand federal police powers.

The Hatch bill, entitled the Victory Act (Vital Interdiction of Criminal Terrorist Organizations Act), is seen by some to be a substitute for the so-called Patriot Act II -- the Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003 -- which was leaked and caused a furor in Congress as well as among liberal and conservative civil liberties groups. A draft copy of the Victory Act has been posted on the Web ( "

First Amendment in Montgomery
" It was clearly demonstrated during the Nuremberg trials that men were obliged to obey a higher authority than that of their superiors, that men were morally responsible to behave according to the overruling moral principles of natural law, and that to blindly follow evil orders from any political or military official did not exonerate one's personal responsibility and accountability for their conduct. " - Chuck Baldwin -
" The placement of the monument is cursory to the issues behind the monument. Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has crafted the legal equivalent of the 'perfect storm' in regards to the 'separation of church and state' doctrine. This has the high courts scared, to rule against the Chief Justice establishes, once and for all, that atheism is the official Federal religion and all States will be forced to practice it. " - Joe Maus -

Whose National Security?
The White House can't tell the truth about anything. It even lies about the quality of the air in NYC. If the health and well-being of the citizens of New York isn't in the national interest, I'm not sure whose National Security interest is being served by this secretive White House. It's time for Bush to go. As a traditional Republican and liberty-minded conservative, I will not vote for the reelection of George W. Bush.
" At the White House’s direction, the Environmental Protection Agency gave New Yorkers misleading assurances that there was no health risk from the debris-laden air after the World Trade Center collapse, according to an internal inquiry. PRESIDENT BUSH’S senior environmental adviser on Friday defended the White House involvement, saying it was justified by national security. "

Free Trade isn't free & isn't fair
You may think Free Trade represents a free economy until you lose your job and your kids can't find one.

THE PASSION, The New Testament and Extremist ADL Jewish Censorship
" You don't achieve interfaith relationships by being tolerant of anti-Semitism. My understanding has always been that evangelical support of Israel is out of goodwill, good faith and is not conditioned as a quid pro quo on any issue. " -- Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League --
The 'issue' Foxman is talking about is the Mel Gibson's movie, THE PASSION and the integrity of the New Testament.
Isn't it clear?
Foxman is saying the New Testament is anti-Semitic!
The ADL wishes to censor the New Testament.
The ADL wants Christians to value support of the state of Israel over the New Testament!
The pitiful reality is, most American Christians are willing to subjugate the Word of God to the dictates of the ADL and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
These are not the Jews Against Zionism who still revere the Torah.
These are the extremists willing to kill the First Amendment, burn books and silence its critics, all in the name of 'support of Israel ... out of goodwill [and] good faith.'
Well, no thanks!
" The strongest pro-Israel sentiment comes from a subset of evangelicals known as Christian Zionists, who see the existence of modern Israel as a precondition for the second coming of Christ, which is to be preceded by a period of extreme violence and the death of millions, including Jews. "
These Christians need to get a clue.
Christians willing to put the political state of Israel before Jesus Christ are worshipping up the wrong tree.

Remembering Vietnam in Iraq
" Then you would see it. In the eyes. The clean, white fury of men who have been reduced to abject humiliation and powerlessness in front of their families. The hatred in their eyes would be as pure as any you would ever see. It would last forever. You would never forget it.
I saw those eyes again the other day on the evening news. A group of young American soldiers, sent by their government to go house to house in a sweltering Baghdad suburb, had kicked in a door and rousted a family. The children were terrified, crying. The mother was furious, screaming. The eyes of the GIs were filled with confusion and shame at what they were being made to do by their government.
And the father, down on the ground in front of his house with a kid from Arkansas or Detroit or California standing on his neck, showed in his eyes the kind of white-hot hatred that will take a thousand years to extinguish. "
People ask, Doesn't our government ever learn?
But it's the questioner who hasn't 'learned.'
Our government, and those who run it, are meeting the objectives of their agenda.
Getting along with the Vietnamese or the Iraqi people is not on the list of things to do.
'Liberation' was a word used to 'pacify' the American people, giving them a sense of 'good works.'
'Weapons of Mass Destruction' was a phrase used to 'incite' the American people.
The phrase empowered us with righteous authority to invade another country.
Tyranny, oppression and occupation is what our tax dollars and our blessing has delivered to Iraq.
Profit is the payback for our leaders and the Military Industrial Complex.
Confusion, hatred for America, bleeding and dead sons and daughters, and a huge expenditure of our national wealth is the payback for the gullible American citizen.
'Learn' that, and you'll begin to see through the 'fog of war.'

Euthanasia in America: Spend a moment with Terri Schindler-Schiavo
Why is the Church and the courts turning their back on Terri Schiavo's desire to live? This woman may be impaired, but does that justify starving her to death? Are we going to start killing everyone who is dependent upon medical treatment and help from others?

America's culture of death is gaining momentum. What started with abortion, then moved to euthanasia for comatose patients, such as Karen Quinlan, is quickly moving into the realm of the living, but impaired. It's plain to see where this is going... The old and feeble, the unwanted, undesirables and the politically incorrect.

Recent Videos of Terri
Here are the recent videos of Terri so you can see who the Florida Courts are calling a 'lifeless vegetable,' and will shortly issue a date to begin Terri's death by starvation. Click Here!
" Though they have been asked time and again to defend the innocent life of Terri Schiavo (who is a Catholic woman), the Bishops of the State of Florida have chosen not to take action that might help to spare her life. They have, however, come to the rescue of someone else - convicted killer Paul Hill. "
Once again, we see in daily life the huge disconnect between the Catholic Church and the Catholic congregation. It's time for Catholics to hold their church accountable. In the meantime, the Catholic Church, the Florida courts and the people of America MUST come to the aid of Terri!
