Personally, I find Bill O'Reily to be a pompous blowhard most of the time. But here, he says this about as well as anyone.

I'm no attorney, but it would seem that an attorney that specializes in constitutional law would have a basic understanding of innocent until proven guilty. Especially if that attorney is President of the United States. Maybe the President should have got a second opinion from pastor Jeremiah Wright before speaking on the issue of race relations and come up with a better response. Ann Coulter is insisting she has information that the question during the press conference was planted by Team Obama. Don't know if I buy that one, his answer is too stupid to be anything other then an off the cuff response, telling as it may be. Better stay with the teleprompter next time.

Hamas seized power in Gaza in June 2007 and vowed never to impose its conservative values on others. But it has taken a series of steps in recent months that appear to be aimed at forcing residents to accept its Islamic-oriented social agenda. Police have pressured store owners to cover scantily clad mannequins, and men relaxing on the beach have been ordered to cover up. One secondary girls' school has made wearing a Muslim headscarf and loose robe a mandatory uniform in the upcoming school year.
"...we hope it provides a necessary jolt to the economy" VP Joe Biden March 28, 2009
"But the act was intended to provide steady support for our economy over an extended period — not a jolt that would last only a few months." VP Joe Biden, July 26, 2009

James Lewis asks an interesting question: Does Ted Kennedy deserve his extended cancer care?
If the proposed health care plan that has been "the cause of his life" is so wonderful, shouldn't the same standards of care meant for you and I be applied to the founding father of America's nationalized health care plan? The complete article can be found HERE.
A related thought: Is congress going to drop their current taxpayer funded health care for the new Obama plan, or will this just be more legislation they exempt themselves from?

Is the United States of America a country based upon Christian beliefs and values? Should America forget and bury it's heritage and it's history in the name of compromise and tolerance? What do YOU believe? I'm all for respecting the views and beliefs of ALL Americans. But I also believe it time to stand up and demand the same from others.

Cost, Not Universal Coverage, is Top Health Care Concern for Voters
61% of voters nationwide say that cost is the biggest health care problem facing the nation today, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national survey. According to a report released by the Congressional Budget Office July 18 enacting the Obama health care plan would result in a net increase in the federal budget deficit of $239 billion over the 2010-2019 period. That estimate reflects a projected 10-year cost of the bill’s insurance coverage provisions of $1 trillion. CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf testified to congress that while the Obama health care bill increases the number of people covered, it does nothing to lower or control the cost of health care. Why would Obama spend $1 trillion to fix the wrong problem?
Perhaps the answer has been there the entire time, people just refuse to see it through all that "hope and change".

Diet Tip of the Day
Eating brownie mix from the bowl has no calories. Seriously. I'm pretty sure my mom told me this when I was a kid. Works for cookie dough too.
Some days I can't decide which is more depressing, the Democrat's stimulus package that was rammed through without anyone reading it (hey, Princess Nancy didn't want to be late for her all expense paid by the taxpayer trip to Italy with her husband and entourage), or Obama's national health care plan that he is urgently pushing for approval before anyone can read the fine print.
Of course with the great success of the stimulus package, what could possibly go wrong with a national health care plan. No need to review the facts, as the MSM is too busy filling their 24/7 news cycle with the important details of Michael Jackson's children and the latest sighting of Jon and Kate. To paraphrase the latest Jedi mind trick speech from The One, "these aren't the facts you're looking for. Move along, nothing to see here".
May the force be with you.
The freedoms and rights granted to us by our constitution as US citizens opens the door for groups to use those same freedoms to attack our way of life. Information regarding the "training of oppressed Muslims" here in the US of A. Not sure what type of oppression they are forced to deal with here, but these camps appear to be quite different then the church camps I attended.
I have no background information on "Christian's Action Network", and from a quick look at their web site http://www.christianaction.org/, they appear to be a small group that meets around the kitchen table with the single purpose of putting out this information/video.
Hannity has a very narrow view of the world, and seems to take an interesting issue/concept/idea and beat that horse to a very painful death with a far right stick. But that doesn't mean the issues he brings to light should be ignored.
The backwoods of America is full of all kinds of neo-nazi, skinheads with equally fun and festive get-together picnics. Maybe we could just round them all up, drop them all somewhere and let them go at each other. Make a great reality TV show. To boost the ratings we could drop Rosie O'Donnell in the middle to provide everyone a common enemy. I know I'd watch.
Bloody Cartoons.On 9/30/05 cartoons of Mohammed were published in a Danish newspaper; inciting Muslims to burn Danish flags/embassies all over the world. This documentary examines the consequences of that fateful event & the cost to their democratic freedom of expression. A warning message for the US? Time will tell.

Liberal Law Professors Against Sotomayor?
At least one liberal law professor was “completely disgusted” by Judge Sotomayor’s testimony. In an online debate on the Federalist Society’s website, Georgetown law professor Mike Seidman writes:
I was completely disgusted by Judge Sotomayor's testimony today. If she was not perjuring herself, she is intellectually unqualified to be on the Supreme Court. If she was perjuring herself, she is morally unqualified. How could someone who has been on the bench for seventeen years possibly believe that judging in hard cases involves no more than applying the law to the facts? …
Perhaps Justice Sotomayor should be excused because our official ideology about judging is so degraded that she would sacrifice a position on the Supreme Court if she told the truth. Legal academics who defend what she did today have no such excuse. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Anyone reading/watching Sotomayor’s testimony today on foreign law should reach similar conclusions, albeit for very different reasons than Professor Seidman’s.
