Building an Ark
Author: BobR    Date: 10/07/2015 13:14:37

If you believe the Bible to be a literal recording of past history, you believe that God commanded Noah to build an ark because God wanted to rid the earth of the wicked men, but wanted to preserve the animals. A more allegorical view would be that it was a warning that mankind should heed the directive to take care of the earth, and be good to one another, or there could be consequences. In the Bible, those consequences were a great flood, but they could be anything. How odd, then, that during modern times we are flooding the earth ourselves with melting ice caps.

Good Morning.

I'm still working through how best to track where we are in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are increasingly obscure dates we could use as markers...so for now I'm going to stop counting.

But that doesn't mean the toll doesn't stop adding up. You no doubt heard about the crash of a C-130 outside Jalalabad (Afghanistan), that killed six troops?

I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me —and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words. ~~ Donald Trump

The Myths of Planned Parenthood
Author: BobR    Date: 09/30/2015 13:25:58

Terms like "McCarthy-esque" and "witch hunts" get bandied about quite often when Congress decides to pursue a perceived wrongdoing, and proceeds with much pomp and circumstance, and very little substance. It usually involves some idea that is ideologically polarizing, but not really a threat to typical Americans. The labels get used so much they have begun to lose some of their meaning... which is a shame, because yesterday that is exactly what happened to Planned Parenthood in general, and Cecile Richards in particular.

Abortion has always been one of those issues that sets off some primal scream in the brains of certain conservatives, and it is so loud that no facts, nor common sense, nor Constitutional protections are enough to get through to them. The hearing yesterday was not meant to be a "hearing", as they were much more interested in talking than in hearing the responses by Cecile Richards. The whole reason for the kangaroo court was to bury Planned Parenthood.
