The Associated Press (Yahoo) reports 20 dead from snow storm. Another victim of global warming is a 93 year-old man who froze to death in his apartment in Bay City. In fact, global warming is killing people outside and inside their apartments in Anchorage (my home town), Duluth, Hesse, Greenwich Village, Normal, Val d’Isere, etc.
The March of the Penguins movie showed that emperor penguins must work very hard to lay and incumbate their eggs and feed their young on solid ground, marching hundreds of miles to get food at sea, and still many die because of the extreme cold in Antarctica, and yet global warming is going to cause their race to become extinct. The Washington Post writer Will Durham writes: “Emperor penguins, the species of these aquatic flightless birds featured in the Oscar-winning 2005 documentary ‘March of the Penguins,’ breed on Antarctic sea ice and dive from the sea ice to feed on krill, fish and squid.” I guess Durham has never actually seen the film, since the whole point of the penguin march was that they lay their eggs on solid ground not ice and therefore have to walk hundreds of miles to get food. Let this be a lesson to those who wish to cite a book in a research paper but have never themselves read the book. It is a clear example of journalistic malpractice that we see in the media on an increasingly regular basis.
U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday will lift restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counselling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush, an administration official said.
When asked by Rick Warren when life begins, Obama said he didn’t know; Steven Ertelt reports (Sept 6, 2008):
When asked during the forum at Saddleback Church, Obama said last month “that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”
In an interview with ABC News’ “This Week” program on Sunday, Obama said he meant to say that he thinks the scientific question of the beginning of human life is a theological one that he can’t answer.
“What I intended to say is that, as a Christian, I have a lot of humility…all I meant to communicate was that I don’t presume to be able to answer these kinds of theological questions,” he said.
So as a Christian, Mr. Obama has humility. But wouldn’t humility lead one to err on the side of caution? If he doesn’t know when life begins, wouldn’t it be safer in the sight of God not to kill innocent babies in their mother’s wombs? Or does Obama by his actions today, just as his past voting record, show that he does not fear God? Now his policies contribute to abortions anywhere in the word where people receive US subsidies.
Cf. americanthinker.com and this comment from Lee:
Inside the womb is becoming the most dangerous place on earth. More Americans die here daily than have been killed for the entire campaign in Iraq. Since abortion mills specifically target minorities, I find it sad that so many black people support the planned genocide of their own. Look at where centers are located and the demographics of people they “service.” And cry for 30 million who were never given the chance that Obamas mother gave him.
Former Senate Majority leader (Republican, Tennessee), Bill Frist, M.D., has written, “Commentary: Bush saved 10 million lives“, on George Bush’s fight against HIV and AIDS in Africa.
The bottom line is: George Bush is a healer.
First, a surprise proclamation came on January 29, 2003.
I was in the first row in the House chamber when three quarters through his State of the Union address, the president boldly said: “I ask the Congress to commit $15 billion over the next five years … to turn the tide against AIDS in the most afflicted nations of Africa and the Caribbean” and “lead the world in sparing innocent people from a plague of nature.”
I received an e-mail today from Africa, and this is the way I was greeted: “Reçois mes fraternelles salutations en Christ. En ce jour de l’investiture d’Obama comme président noir américain, je crois que vous vous portez bien dans la grande famille de Barnabas venture.” I suppose that many of my African friends believe that it is a momentous and historic occasion that son of their own soil is becoming today the most powerful man in the world. Let me just say a few words of caution.
Obama is a man. His father is a Luo and a Muslim from Kenya, his mother a white America. His political roots are socialist and communist. Regarding social values, he favors abortion and homosexual unions, just as Democrat Party platform dictates. As a Christian, I have trouble with the social values of the Democrat Party. As an investor, I am very wary of Obama’s political and economic agenda. We can start with the plan to more than double the deficit to over a trillion dollars. This will give Obama additional spending power of 8.3% of the USA GDP.
I’ve joked with people that because the Obama stimulus will lead to inflation, soon enough the US will become like Zimbabwe: every time we do a print run of our currency, we’ll have to add three zeros. Zimbabwe now has a 100 trillion dollar note.
Now some major players are recommending that people abandon the US dollar for other investments. From Bloomberg:
Jim Rogers, chairman of Singapore- based Rogers Holdings, said investors should be “worried” about the U.S. dollar, and recommended selling government bonds and buying raw materials, China stocks and the yen. “If I were you, I would be worried about the U.S. dollar,” said Rogers, 66, in a speech at the Asia Financial Forum in Hong Kong today. “The Americans are printing U.S. dollars. The Americans are going to do whatever they can to revive their economy, even if it means destroying the U.S. dollar.”
