Wagglebee started a thread on the topic and it is, uhhhh, stirring up some emotions.
To all of you FRiberals out there, and that means all of you Rooty Rooters and Romneyites, it's your fault that the GOP is almost for certain stuck with McCain as the nominee. Now, I don't mean those of you who voted for Romney on Super Tuesday in an effort to split the vote, but the rest of you are culpable.
Conservative FReepers have spent the past year listening to the likes of you tell us that conservatives have "had their foot on the neck" of the GOP for too long. We were told that all that mattered was someone who was strong on terror. We were told that we needed someone with strong name recognition. We were told that generally the GOP decides whose "turn it is" and then nominates that person. We were told that we needed someone who can get independent votes. We were told that ANY Republican would nominate strict constructionists to the Federal bench. We were told that winning was all that mattered............
This SUNDAY is Lisa MacPherson’s birthday had she not died suspiciously of dehydration at the Scientology Hotel in downtown Clearwater. There is a group called “anonymous” who is holding worldwide demonstrations against the sci’s on Lisa’s birthday.

Double posting again. Getting out of hand, must be hiccups in the server.
The Portly One heard later that death threats and ugly, verbal protests had been received by the Chautauqua's officials prior to Rove's arrival. Threats had also been received because of another speaker, Bobby Schindler, brother to Terri Schiavo, the disabled woman who was allowed to die, with court approval, of starvation and dehydration. (The reader is advised to note that the way younger adults treat older adults in our churches is a whiff of the growing acceptance of euthanasia, a natural result of the acceptance of abortion of innocent babies.)
Mr. Wynn has long touted what he regards as a pragmatic ability to work across partisan lines. We're all for bipartisanship, but in Mr. Wynn's case, too often his stances have been unthinking and out of step with his district's interests. His vote to scrap the estate tax suggested he was indifferent to his own middle-class constituents. By flip-flopping on fuel-efficiency standards and opposing campaign finance reforms, he showed his contempt for clean air and clean government. And he seems scarcely aware of the import of his votes to permit federal courts to intervene in the Terri Schiavo case and to support a constitutional amendment banning flag-burning: granting federal courts a license to meddle in private affairs and cramping free speech............
It's a good thing Chicago's two sports radio stations, WMVP and WSCR, are bottom feeders in the quarterly ratings. Otherwise, the perception might be that their hosts define the city. And heaven help us if we were personified by a collection of crude, disgusting cavemen who spew anti-Semitism, conduct ``hug a Black'' missions, make fun of people on life support, refer to a female TV executive as ``a bitch'' and react to Bill Wirtz's passing by asking which local figures should die next.
Another problem is allowing sports hosts with low IQs to pontificate about social issues. For years, WSCR's Mike North has embarrassed his hometown by forcing his views on race, religion and current events when, in truth, he's just a goof who was pulled out of a hot-dog stand 15 years ago. North has a hard enough time putting together a sports argument, much less breaking down Hillary vs. Obama. But there he was, mimicking and mocking brain-damaged Terri Schiavo during her right-to-die drama. Sorry, but why is a sports host telling me about Terri Schiavo? And wouldn't I want to scream if I heard him ridiculing her, wondering how he might feel if she was one of his family members?................
As Executive Director of the Florida affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, Simon has overall responsibility for the ACLU's legal, public education, legislative lobbying, and membership and fund-raising programs. During Simon's tenure with the ACLU, the organization has been involved in cases and controversies dealing with school vouchers, charter schools, religious practices in the public schools, abortion rights, physician-assisted suicide (Schiavo), voting rights, and numerous controversies involving freedom of speech.................
LOS ANGELES, February 8, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An article published today in the LA Times gives new details about five abortion mills in southern California, owned by Bertha Bugarin, that were raided last summer by a special unit of the Los Angeles Police Department, the Health Authority Law Enforcement Task Force (HALT).
At the time of the raids Bertha Bugarin and her sister were arrested and then released on bail. They have now been charged with practicing medicine without a license on five patients in February and March 2007. The LAPD charges Bertha Bugarin "with five felony counts of practicing medicine without certification and two misdemeanor counts of dispensing medication without a license," while Raquel "is charged in the same complaint with five felony counts of aiding or abetting the practice of medicine without certification.".........

Just in time for Easter. Again.
Heartfelt prayers for this young lady.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
“..Some doctors say that with therapy
she may soon eat on her own.”
It just keeps getting worse. They don’t even want to give disabled people a CHANCE any more, even the young. Imagine what they do with the elderly when they have the chance.
Lauren is such a beautiful young woman.
I pray each day for and end to abortion, euthanasia, forced “euthanasia,” etc..
More prayers for Lauren.
If mom believes the child is a REPLICA of Lauren so that Lauren CAN BE KILLED, that's one twisted mother.
From: Leslie Hanks <email@example.com>Date: February 8, 2008 9:54:23 AM MSTTo: Jill Stanek <firstname.lastname@example.org>Subject: My call to Delaware Gov Minner on behalf of Lauren Richardson
The woman fielding calls said the Governor has no plansto get involved in a matter before the courts.
I said as the Executive Branch leader she has a responsibilityto protect innocent life.
She kept saying she couldn't because it is a judicial matter.
I pointed out that she has the power to pardon criminalsso she should pardon an innocent woman who hassomeone trying to starve her with spurious motives.
I asked if she'd please make note of the calls about thisgrievous situation.
She said she'd make note of my call (implying I'm the onlyone who has called.)
I said we'd be happy to generate more.
BTW, the first person to answer the phone seemedsympathetic and very happy to pass my call along.
Calls on Lauren's behalf can be made to DelawareGovernor Ruth Ann Minner at:
Wilmington Office: 302- 577-3210
Dover Office: 302-744-4101Lauren's family has the info up on their web site www.Lifeforlauren.orgabout Ambien. We should all be praying that they will somehow be able totry this therapy which has been successful with other locked in people.
"We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will give you no rest."
Poor lefties on Puffington Host think they have out-voted God again and declared God a loser. I conclude this because they suppose they have completely vanquished His people.
Now they smell victory as they see us stuck with a choice amongst their beloved three Marx brothers, Groucho, Harpie, and Karl as the only possible winners quashing their hated and our loved America. And they gloat and prance like only foolish lefties can do. I can only envision this guy Hale drooling or foaming slightly at the mouth as his fingers trembled with joy over the keyboard.
You guys controlled the While House and Congress for 6 years. The country saw what you want to accomplish and are experiencing the impact of your policies. And guess what? THEY THINK CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT STINKS.
Terry Schiavo: This was by far the clearest indication of what the religious right will do if they attain power. And it isn't pretty. Let's tackle this by showing how clearly this situation violated literally every core Republican belief.
"Republicans believe in state's rights." This situation was litigated for years at the state level, in an area of law that traditionally has happened at the state level. The religious right didn't like the result, so they made it a federal issue.
"Republicans believe in individual rights." Schiavo's husband demonstrated in court that his wife wanted to die should her then current situation happen to her. That was her individual choice. A judge agreed. The religious right decided that just wasn't good enough....................

"An age of science is necessarily an age of materialism," wrote Hugh Elliot early in the last century. "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."
One does not have to look far to discover the continued accuracy of Elliot's assessment. Scientific materialism--the claim that everything in the universe can be fully explained by science as the products of unintelligent matter and energy--has become the operating assumption for much of American politics and culture. We are repeatedly told today that our behaviors, our emotions, even our moral and religious longings are reducible to some combination of physical processes interacting with our environment..................
