You're absolutely right.

In the classic "Hunters in the Underbrush" scenario, two hunters are out in the woods hoping to bag some deer. They become separated, and before long, one hunbter sees some movement in the bushes. He can't see what's making the bushes move. It could be his fellow hunter; it could be a deer.

Ethics question: Is he ethically permitted to shoot?

And the answer, class, is "No." Class, you cannot shoot unless you are morally certain that you are not endangering a human life. In doubtful situations you are always required to give "the benefit of the doubt" to human life.

Obama claims to be an advocate of human rights: but his whole philosophy appears to be built up on a firm foundation of absolutely nothing. He doesn't know what a human being is. He doesn't know that human rights begin when human life begins, and human life begins at the beginning.

To put it simply, at the level of Obama's pay grade: human life is transmitted from generation to generation. And it is transmitted with every act of human reproduction which results in fertilization. If an offspring has been begotten, human life has been successfully transmitted to a new generation.

And --- "Pay grade?" --- excuse me. The Presidency of the United States is not an entry-level trainee position.

For some reason, I cannot look at “pay grade” on an Obama thread without seeing “gay parade”.

Anyway, he’s asking to be hired for THE HIGHEST pay grade in the world,

and the question of when life begins, in this context,


which he, as highest Executive, is charged with enforcing.

He MUST answer this question, or not be qualified for the office.
