Playing God with “Endangered” Species

In mid-August Barack Obama had this to say about a White House decision regarding the Endangered Species Act: “After over 30 years of successfully protecting our nation’s most endangered wildlife like the bald eagle, we should be looking for ways to improve it, not weaken it.

As the husband of a bright, beautiful and talented wife who, after birthing and parenting our eight children is now earning her PhD in political science, and as the father of five bright, beautiful and talented daughters, I am stunned and somewhat outraged at the “talking points” response of some pundits and Democrats to the selection of Gov. Sarah Palin as Sen. McCain’s running mate.

Rather than showing up at the polls just to vote against Obama, conservatives now have a reason to support the Republican ticket - not just a reason, but a good reason. McCain could have gone the other way and chosen a VP who would appeal more to the left, in keeping with this own views, but he not only did the right thing, but the smart thing as well when he picked Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin for the position.

REAL-ID: speed-pass to slavery

Shortly after the year ends, credit card companies send out a summary of all the charges made against an account for the entire year, neatly divided into various types of charges to help customers with their income tax preparation.  Every item shows the date, the time – down to the minute – the location, and the amount of the charge.  This information was collected from the insertion, or swipe of a credit card, or the mere touching of a spot with a speed-pass key.

Nothing is So Blind as a Person with Eyes Who Cannot See

In our more informative years, we read a book by Bertrand Russell entitled, “The Will To Doubt”.  Even though he is a hard author to follow (he writes in very long sentences), his words had a profound influence on our thoughts and philosophy and our rising insight.

Since Media Won’t Help, Time for McCain to Really Exploit His Stance on Iraq

Some how, the Old Media has missed the good news on Iraq. On August 27, the Rasmussen polling organization published a poll< that showed American confidence is at its highest level ever in support of the War on Terror since they’ve begun tracking in January of 2004. This poll got little notice by the Old Media, of course, but it illustrates an issue that McCain should exploit to his benefit—especially after Obama’s acceptance speech last night.

Debunking Democrats on Drilling

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last Tuesday dismissively referred to pro-oil-drilling demonstrators chanting “Drill here! Drill now!” as the “2-cents-in-10-years-crowd.” She may have to revise her insult strategy, since it seems that some mere pro-drilling posturing by President Bush has already helped reduce the price of gas.
