Why put the animal down?

Comments Off on Why put the animal down?

In February this year, a jaguar killed a zookeeper. The other zookeepers put the animal down. Rush Limbaugh made the following comment on his radio show: Even if it hadn’t attacked the other rescuers, and it didn’t say attack, it said it was “approaching.” They couldn’t take any chances. In this case, I understand it. […]

Why do liberals blame the US for the Iraqi death toll?

Why is it that liberals like to place banners on their websites showing the Iraqi death toll? Obviously, it is because they believe that the US is to blame for the casualties. Victor Davis Hanson notes on National Review: Somehow “thousands have been killed” is never qualified as those mostly butchered and blown up by […]

Evolutionists fear other ideas

As you may know, Answers in Genesis has opened a huge Creation Museum in Kentucky. On Ken Ham’s blog, he gives some responses by people at the University of Cincinnati. “What I have a problem with is how the Answers in Genesis movement twists science — repeatedly taking facts out of context — in order […]

Violent crime up again, more murders, robberies

Comments Off on Violent crime up again, more murders, robberies

There’s a story on Yahoo that reports that the murder rate in the US is going up. The FBI reported that the number of violent crimes nationwide went up by 1.3 percent last year, following a 2.3 percent increase in 2005. That had been the first rise in four years and the biggest percentage gain […]

More ingratitude

Comments Off on More ingratitude

By now, everyone knows about the thwarted terror attack in New Jersey. This is yet another example of ingratitude toward American kindness. Michelle Malkin has a column on National Review today describing some of the kindness extended to Muslims by the United States and Fort Dix, in particular: Well, here is the thanks we get. […]

Gun control is not the answer

Comments Off on Gun control is not the answer

I’m not one of those “out of my cold dead hands” gun rights activists. In fact, I hate guns. Never owned one and never fired one (unless you count BB guns).The liberal media was predictable arguing for tighter gun control laws after the Virginia Tech shooting. More gun control laws can only make the problem […]

Who has the neurological disorder?

Comments Off on Who has the neurological disorder?

Bill Maher once said that Christians and others who are religious suffer from a neurological disorder that “stops people from thinking.” Who in their right mind, however, trespasses on private property and thinks that it is okay so long as the persons whose rights you are violating are Christians? I think it is Bill Maher […]

VDH’s dream

Comments Off on VDH’s dream

Victor David Hanson says he had a dream that the British sailors that were captured by Iran fought back. It’s a nice essay about how the world should be. I recently had a dream that British marines fought back, like their forefathers of old, against criminals and pirates. When taken captive, they proved defiant in […]

Hostages released on Iranian terms

Comments Off on Hostages released on Iranian terms

Thank God the British hostages were released without harm, but God help us, because they were released on Iranian terms. The Iranians learned two things through this incident I think we’d all be better off had they not: 1) The EU can’t protect its citizens 2) Engaging in illegal behavior brings with it no consequences […]

Heading for war with Iran?

Comments Off on Heading for war with Iran?

Some other interesting comments from the article in Telegraph by Simon Heffer: I start to wonder whether it might not be time for us to get as nasty with other countries as they do with us… …We don’t have the means to engage in gunboat diplomacy with Iran, and any special forces operation would be […]
