There is a “cost” but it’s just social disapproval by liberals. My pro-life activities got me pointedly not invited to my class reunion. My feelings were hurt but only so long as it took me to put it into perspective. People who have no concern for vicious brutality practiced against the most helpless, voiceless and innocent members of society didn’t want to brag to me about their latest promotions. Boohoo.

Despite federal employees having been given a “liberal leave” day to attend the ceremonies, only 20,000 total attendees were at the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. 100,000 were expected. I’m thinking this says more about today’s black leadership than about King’s legacy.
It is sadly and painfully apparent that Dr. King’s successors have outright ignored his inspiring words:
“And that is something that I must say to my people who stand on the worn threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” Rev. MLK Jr.
Even if you don’t like Rush, this is really worth the time. He makes some very good, very valid points.
Limbaugh: Left Turning MLK Into A Commodity [8:36]
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” Martin Luther King Jr.

The Catholic Church supports democracy, because of all political systems it offers the best conditions for achieving equality before the law and safeguarding human rights. In order to do that, however, democracy must be more than mere majority rule. True democracy is possible only in a State ruled by law that recognizes the fundamental God given rights of all and defends them, if necessary, even against the will of the majority.
History teaches that even democracy offers no absolute protection from violations of human dignity and human rights. It always runs the risk of becoming a tyranny of the majority over a minority. Democracy depends on preconditions that it cannot guarantee in and of itself. That is why Christians in particular must make sure that the values indispensable to a democracy are not undermined.

Salvation is from the Jews by Roy H. Shoeman & Dr. Brant Pitre
The book traces the role of Judaism and the Jewish people in God’s plan for the salvation of mankind, from Abraham through the Second Coming, as revealed by the Catholic faith and by a thoughtful examination of history. It will give Christians a deeper understanding of Judaism, both as a religion in itself and as a central component of Christian salvation.
To Jews it reveals the incomprehensible importance, nobility and glory that Judaism most truly has. It examines the unique and central role Judaism plays in the destiny of the world. It documents that throughout history attacks on Jews and Judaism have been rooted not in Christianity, but in the most anti-Christian of forces.
Areas addressed include: the Messianic prophecies in Jewish scripture; the anti-Christian roots of Nazi anti-Semitism; the links between Nazism and Arab anti-Semitism; the theological insights of major Jewish converts; and the role of the Jews in the Second Coming.
August 28: Syria
- Obama admitted publicly that U.S. intelligence has concluded the Syrian government used chemical WMDs on civilians last week.
- Obama plans to ignore the fact that he couldn’t get U.N. approval for an attack on Syria, because Russia opposes it.
- The Navy has moved a second aircraft carrier into the Gulf.
Obama said the White House will brief top congressional leaders this afternoon about Obama’s plans for a possible military strike.
Democrat and Republican members of Congress reminded Obama that just consulting with or informing Congress is not good enough to make military action legal.
Under the provisions of the War Powers Resolution (WPR), the President is required to notify Congress within 48 hours of the onset of US military involvement. They then have 60 days to get formal authorization from Congress and if they fail to do so must cease operations within 30 days.
Obama is unlikely to give a crap what Congress thinks or the Constitution says. In 2011, he ordered American warplanes into action over Libya without seeking authorization from Congress before or after.
The New York Times, the usual leakhole of Obama Inc, quoted officials describing a limited one or two day campaign that would degrade Assad’s ability to launch chemical weapons, without forcing him out of power. That might be true, but then again no less a figure than Barack H. Obama had promised that the Libyan intervention would last “days, not weeks”. It lasted months, not weeks, let alone days.
Meanwhile, Obama reportedly told several mayors that he would by-pass Congress to get more gun control.

Yesterday’s MLK rally went exactly as expected.The bile flowed like water as speaker after speaker perverted his legacy by fomenting racial hatred and division.Screaming that they’re still victims and wanting more of what the evil ol’ white man has.I avoided the entire charade,given the invitees.
The media made a big deal out of the fact there were no republicans spotted in the crowd.Apparently they asked Boehner and Kantor,but Boney was speaking at another event and Kantor was asked after he’d committed to something else.Given the climate today any non-liberal people of pallor would have been beaten and no one would have seen anything. Besides,my BS-O-Meter would have melted and I can’t afford another one.
Tomorrow’s the funhouse.Don’t know what I’ll have,but I’ll come up with something.I always do.
