abortion through the fourth trimester

Kudos for a clever phrase.

As Ann Coulter wrote last week, the problem with Mo Dowd's anointing Cinderblock with "absolute moral authority" is that it is reckless rhetoric, which is usually what comes when the left starts using terms they don't understand, like "absolute" and "moral."

Writer Maureen Dowd, presumably while being driven to the office in her chauffeured limousine, recently dictated to her onboard secretary that parents whose children have been killed in battle have an “absolute moral authority” regarding anything they say or demand about the war being waged. Despite their childrens’ having repeatedly volunteered for combat duty.

I get tired of hearing about 'kids in combat.' You'd think they are sending 10 year olds over to fight or something.

In America, when a boy turns eighteen he becomes a man and it becomes the time in his life when he needs to make decisions as a man. And we should treat those decisions as such. No one (at least with half of a brain) goes into the military thinking that they'd never get sent off to war. Cindy Sheehan's son was a man, and a fine one at that, who made the adult decision to join the military. Quit talking about him like he was a child. He was not. He's far more an adult than his mother is.

Great article that says it all. Leftists are very immoral people. It's noteworthy that no crisis or disaaster is occurring in Iraq to merit discussing giving up. Leftists are just demanding that we stop being there, that we get out now and they don't care what happens to the Iraqis or us as a consequence. The left is really protesting the success of the operation.

No wonder Casey Sheehan joined the service and then Reenlisted, he was trying to get away from his crazy mother.

I sent this article link to a friend of mine who replied:

There are too many good lines to quote in here. This article is great.

I don't follow what is going on with this woman too much, I think she is getting entirely too much coverage.

I wonder if this woman would say the same if it were a liberal president in office?

I also wonder what was said in letters to her son by Cindy. Were they supportive or did she try to tear him down for being in the military?

Missing in this explosion of "self-discovery," "sticking it to the Man," "Power to the people!" "If it feels good, do it," and "Viva Che'!" was any hint of taking responsibility for one's actions.

I've come to realize that this is why affluence destroys cultures. Affluence gives people the ability to shirk their responsibilities and be completely and horribly wrong about anything and everything without it being instantly fatal. In a less affluent society, such people would be Darwin Award winners, killed by their own mistakes or abandoned by everyone because they are deadbeats. In an affluent society of plenty, they manage to survive comfortably to drone on and on about how they need to be given another chance until the quantity of leaches exceeds the carrying capacity of their culture. By then, it's too late and their culture vanishes, only to be replaced by another that still hasn't been spoiled by affluence.

Wait a minute, it's the RAT-bastard left that proclaims, "there ARE no absolutes" (except the statement itself, which is self-referential, and they can't comprehend that anyway). And the use of the word, "moral"? Whatever happened to their lovely gray shades of nuance?
