i loves me my politics … just cause i cant vote so i have no real tie to anything… and like taking both sides of the argument just for debate sake…

this midterm election is going to be interesting… in virginia and new jersey for governor…. and congress in the 23rd in new york (what a freak show that scozzafava is.. the republican candidate that is more liberal than the democrat…) and i love that they have a seperate ‘conservative’ party .. instead of republican

the new jersey race is gonna be fun …

i love that obama had so much time to stump and campaign some more for corzine in NJ cause it will look really really bad if these 3 races go non-demopcrat

this picture just says it all …. obama bending over for whitey

oh my gawd,,,,

i am not a catholic… but i love that denver has the honor of having archbishop charles j. chaput serving at the archdioceses of denver.

yesterday, nancy pelosi was on meet the press with tom brokaw and made statements about abortionwhen asked about barack obamas answer at the saddleback forum…  i knew she was a little batty… but these answers were just goofy… and completely against her catholic faith.

i love that he smacked her down with the bonhoeffer spanky stick

spank you very much mr chaput… we have known that nancy pelosi has been a little kooky .. like her saying that we need to move away from our dependance on fossil fuels and move to natural gas (which IS a fossil fuel.. and her family has investments in natural gas… hmmm maybe a bit of conflict of interest?)

ON THE SEPARATION OF SENSE AND STATE:
A CLARIFICATION FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH
IN NORTHERN COLORADO
To Catholics of the Archdiocese of Denver:
Catholic public leaders inconvenienced by the abortion debate tend to take a hard line in talking about the “separation of Church and state.” But their idea of separation often seems to work one way. In fact, some officials also seem comfortable in the role of theologian. And that warrants some interest,not as a “political” issue, but as a matter of accuracy and justice.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is a gifted public servant of strong convictions and many professional skills. Regrettably, knowledge of Catholic history and teaching does not seem to be one of them.

Interviewed on Meet the Press August 24, Speaker Pelosi was asked when human life begins. She said the following:
“I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is over the centuries, the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition . . . St. Augustine said at three months. We don’t know. The point is, is that it shouldn’t have an impact on the woman’s right to choose.”
Since Speaker Pelosi has, in her words, studied the issue “for a long time,” she must know very well one of the premier works on the subject, Jesuit John Connery’s Abortion: The Development of the Roman Catholic Perspective (Loyola, 1977). Here’s how Connery concludes his study:
“The Christian tradition from the earliest days reveals a firm antiabortion attitude . . . The condemnation of abortion did not depend on and was not limited in any way by theories regarding the time of fetal animation. Even during the many centuries when Church penal and penitential practice was based on the theory of delayed animation, the condemnation of abortion was never affected by it. Whatever one would want to hold about the time of animation, or when the fetus became a human being in the strict sense of the term, abortion from the time of conception was considered wrong, and the time of animation was never looked on as a moral dividing line between permissible and impermissible abortion.”
Or to put it in the blunter words of the great Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer:

“Destruction of the embryo in the mother’s womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed on this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.”
Ardent, practicing Catholics will quickly learn from the historical record that from apostolic times, the Christian tradition overwhelmingly held that abortion was grievously evil. In the absence of modern medical knowledge, some of the Early Fathers held that abortion was homicide; others that it was tantamount to homicide; and various scholars theorized about when and how the unborn child might be animated or “ensouled.” But none diminished the unique evil of abortion as an attack on life itself, and the early Church closely associated abortion with infanticide. In short, from the beginning, the believing Christian community held that abortion was always, gravely wrong.
Of course, we now know with biological certainty exactly when human life begins. Thus, today’s religious alibis for abortion and a so-called “right to choose” are nothing more than that – alibis that break radically with historic Christian and Catholic belief.
Abortion kills an unborn, developing human life. It is always gravely evil, and so are the evasions employed to justify it. Catholics who make excuses for it – whether they’re famous or not – fool only themselves and abuse the fidelity of those Catholics who do sincerely seek to follow the Gospel and live their Catholic faith.
The duty of the Church and other religious communities is moral witness. The duty of the state and its officials is to serve the common good, which is always rooted in moral truth. A proper understanding of the “separation of Church and state” does not imply a separation of faith from political life. But of course, it’s always important to know what our faith actually teaches.

so i alluded to this earlier, but i noticed that the picture of obama on the biden selection was very overexposed and washed out and light…

this was counter to the hillary campaign that was blasted for running an ad with obama looking ‘darker’ than he normally was…

i am just wondering wich is the real obama.. and is he playing the color game the other way….

obama… the other white meat? you tell me… is barack playing a reverse race card?

would it not be sweet if john mccain chose hillary for veep?  that would destroy obama more than everything in the past few days has…. and what was with the 3am saturday email with the biden selection?  was that a throwback to the 3am phone call?

look at all of the millions of votes that would come with her… i guess the only thing you would have to worry about would be ending up like vince foster on a hill and shot in the head … so watch out mccain

just a random thought… cause obama _should_ have selected hillary.. cause that is how you do it… generally picking the runner up for veep is the classy thing to do…

i want to like barack. i see in him the culmination of the civil rights movement… that america IS the land of opportunity…. that anyone, no mater their color or gender can strive and reach for the highest office in the united states… and the world… i think martin luther king jr would be pleased at the level of progress the US has made… not to say there are not challenges and ignorant bigots stills.. but all in all.. you know what.. things are pretty good when you compare it to the rest of the world… i am not even a citizen of the US and i think i might love the US more than barack does

so… back to barack. barack has hurt himself more in the past week or so … than any i can remember… i am trying to figure out how the first man of color that has won a major party nomination finds it so hard to be proud of his own country, and feels the need to harp on minor issues… when there are larger issues at hand.

first was the thrashing mccain gave him at the saddleback forum… where he stumbled on words and answers and looked like a scared little kid trying to back track and avoid giving specific answers… even those in his pay grade. i wish rick warren would have countered on when barack thought his 2 daughters gained human rights?

the infanticide legislation where he blocked the protection of a baby born alive during a botched abortion to get medical help, because adding a second doctor to the stressful circumstance might make the abortion decision more difficult for the woman that chose to have the abortion … so he is in fact FOR the letting die/killing of a viable infant that is out of the womb … just to protect the womans right to choose

then the william ayers thing is blowing up (to put it lightly) … it again brings into question the level of involvement and knowledge of a person that barack has to associate himself with someone that was/is an admitted terrorist against these united states.. by bombing the capitol, pentigon and others…

then the rezko home purchase details are getting more and more difficult for barack to explain as chance

then he questions john mccain about how many houses he has… while living in a $4 million dollar house himself… and probably has other property too. so what if john mccain and cindy mccain own 7 homes… is that where the dirty politics mccain was playing gets you? a shot at how many houses you have? why not ask you buddy john kerry, or oprah? come on.. barack cant hit mccain on actual issues so he has to bring up classism.. while living a pretty fine and dandy life himself

then word that his half brother in kenya lives in a hut and barack does nothing to help him. george obama lives off something like $1/month … so why cant barack send him a couple of hundred bucks? even a grand? or help him move here to the states? maybe family is not that important to him

he then equated russia invading georia to the usa invading iraq. and that the US should set a better example for russia to follow… i am still trying to grasp the similarity in circumstances between the 2 conflicts…

and finally.. he said that after looking at bejing, and their ports, airports, trains, infrastructure… that their engineering and infrastructure was vastly superior than ours…. uh really? did you just look at one city… where they have been pouring resources and force or cheap labor for years… and loads of money for the olympics… and base your estimation of an entire country on 1 city? their infrastructure is vastly superior? how about the 70,000 dead people because buildings and schools collapsed during an earthquake… lets see how many cars and trains the chinese actually engineered themselves and built… how many rockets and satellite technologies have they created on their own??? oh right… if bill clinton sold it to them, then it is not an issue… how about their information superhighway… or the internets as we like to call it… how much of the blocked sites and state censored content would the free press here in the united states love and embrace …. how about you bloggers and personal website maintainers… think you would be able to adhere to the rule of law when it comes to speech in china? how about you union workers that love the dems? how about working for a factory that produces 12 pairs of socks for $3 … that it exports to another country … in real sweat shops….

come on barack… we all want to like you. we all want to vote for you… but you are making it so hard to defend any of your positions…

oh wait… i cant vote… screw it. barack… you just need a good ol fashion junk punch… maybe that will bring a much needed gut check
