PETA loves (making money off) animals

I guess it’s easier and more profitable to put animals down than to actually do the hard work of finding homes for them. …But now Peta – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – is itself on the receiving end of angry words over its own treatment of animals after it emerged that the […]

Comments Off on More on ESCR

Former President Clinton recently added his two cents to the debate. He said that scientists engaging in embryonic stem cell research must be careful to use only embryos that “have been placed beyond the pale of being fertilized before their use.” Somebody should tell him that fertilization is what produces an embryo and starts human […]

Obama stimulus plan: Elderly beware

Betsy McCaughey has a commentary on Bloomberg about how the Obama stimulus plan is going to overhaul healthcare in the country so that ” individuals benefit in younger years and sacrifice later.” Is this really what Americans want? Elderly Hardest Hit Daschle says health-care reform “will not be pain free.” Seniors should be more accepting of the […]

Shhhh! Don’t say the “C” word!

Here’s the first story I’ve seen this season: For as long as anyone can remember, Christmas trees adorned with lights and ornaments have greeted holiday season visitors to UNC Chapel Hill’s two main libraries. Not this year. The trees, which have stood in the lobby areas of Wilson and Davis libraries each December, were kept […]

I will definitely consider it as an option for my own children someday. Some of the stuff coming from the mouths of liberal elitists in the educational establishment is disgusting, particularly a recent editorial in […]

ADL sinks further into irrelevancy

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was supposedly established “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people, to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike,” but under the leadership of Abraham Foxman, they have become a group of irrelevant political hacks. They attack Christians, America’s Christian heritage, and anyone or anything else that is not […]

Violent polytheists

Comments Off on Violent polytheists

How many times have you heard that monotheism is the source of the world’s problems? Monotheists like Christians, Jews and Muslims are supposedly the root of all evil. If only everyone could be as open-minded as the polytheists there wouldn’t be religious violence, they say. One only needs to look to India to see that […]

Scientists exaggerate? Tell me it ain’t so!

It turns out that “The United Nations’ top AIDS scientists plan to acknowledge this week that they have long overestimated [read “lied about”] both the size and the course of the [AIDS] epidemic, which they now believe has been slowing for nearly a decade…” They also said they cannot rule out futher downward revisions. Leave […]
