    General Douglas MacArthur, in his farewell speech given to the Corps of Cadets at West Point on May 12, 1962, spoke of duty, honor and country and what these words entail for the professional soldier. General MacArthur spoke of the bloody battles and the heroic sacrifices made by the soldier on countless battlefields. But he added, "This does not mean that you are warmongers. On the contrary, the soldier above all other people prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war." This point is not understood by everyone. It is least understood...
  • Group Gives Women Plants to Take Home After Their Abortions: Bring One Life Home

    Sometimes words reveal more than they are meant to. When I read the testimonials from the charitable organization Plants for Patients (P4P) I sense a ghostly sadness. P4P hands out plants to abortion patients, succulents because they are incredibly adaptable and come in a vast array of colors and shapes like the women who experience abortion. The succulent plants are growing in tiny hand-made planters made specially by a ceramic artist. The organization is neither pro-life nor pro-choice, but pro-compassion, offering gifts to women after abortion to show love and empathy not shame and hate. Why plants? Because scientific research...

    Dozens of young men stood waiting for storm clouds to pass, as wind stirred up swirls of red dust on the largely deserted street in Central African Republics capital. Through the drizzle, they spotted a man in a flowing white robe traditionally worn by Muslims, hand-in-hand with his adolescent son. The style of dress was enough to confirm that this was their enemy.

    Dozens of Palestinian Authority Arabs on Tuesday created a hole through the security barrier that runs between the Arab village of Abu Dis and Jerusalem. The Arabs said that IDF forces who were stationed nearby dispersed them using tear gas and stun grenades. A similar incident took place two months ago, when dozens of Arab men held a protest against the security barrier, taking large hammers and creating a gaping hole in the wall. Several men used the hole to enter Jerusalem without going through a security checkpoint. That protest was part of the Nakba Day events in which Arabs...
  • Virginia approves strict new rules for abortion clinics

    After hearing from more than 30 speakers during hours of debate, the Virginia Board of Health on Thursday approved sweeping changes to abortion-clinic regulations that abortion-rights groups say will close many of the state's 22 clinics. Acting under a mandate from the Legislature, the board passed the new rules on a 12-1 vote. The emergency regulations, favored by pro-life advocates, give the state more control over facilities that provide five or more first-trimester abortions per month and requires those facilities to abide by regulations normally reserved for hospitals. By the start of 2012, clinics would be required to renovate their...

    "The more terrifying the occasion for defense, the closer will become the organization and the more coercive the influence upon each member of the herd. War sends the current of purpose and activity flowing down to the lowest level of the herd, and to its most remote branches. All the activities of society are linked together as fast as possible to this central purpose of making a military offensive or a military defense, and the State becomes what in peacetimes it has vainly struggled to becomethe inexorable arbiter and determinant of mens business and attitudes and opinions" -Randolph Bourne Dear...

    If Reality TV degenerates at its current pace, families will soon tune in to a trendy new show, You Bet Your Life. But it wont be a Groucho Marx game show re-run. Over TV dinners well be watching some poor soul competitively killed--not a digitized cartoon, mind you, but gladiator-style and for real. We 21st Century sophisticates fancy ourselves more civilized than the Roman hoards who packed arenas and roared their approval with every bloody collapse. But todays Reality TV revenues disagree. The more perverse the program, the higher the viewership.

    ( - Ms. Magazine's latest pro-abortion message invites women and girls who have undergone the procedure to submit their names for inclusion in the magazine and sign an online petition stating that "I have had an abortion." The petition targets the recent South Dakota abortion ban, which has been stayed until voters in the state decide on the November ballot whether they want to overturn the ban. "Whatever happens in South Dakota, 17 states now have trigger laws or pre-Roe bans that will ban abortion if the Supreme Court were to reverse Roe v. Wade," Ms. Magazine warns. The South...

    WASHINGTON (BP)--America has gained a peek into the closely guarded world of the abortion clinic recently and, as would be expected, it has not been a pleasant sight. An estimated 47 million abortions have taken place since the procedure was legalized Jan. 22, 1973, by the Supreme Court. In the last 33 years, the practices of abortion doctors and the reasoning of the women who have received abortions have largely remained hidden from the American public. Shame certainly is a factor. The curtain around the abortion clinic normally has been pulled back during this time only when a clinic operator,...
  • Dad, son, 8, revel in thrill of first deer

    <p>GULFPORT - It's hard to tell who actually gave the Christmas present to whom on a recent hunting trip or who really received it. The bottom line is neither Tim Magee of Gulfport nor his eight-year old son, Will Magee, will every forget the 2005 Christmas season. You see, Tim was sitting in a ground blind when his son, a third-grader at Westminster Academy in Gulfport, bagged his first deer, a solid eight-pointer that weighed 170 pounds - dressed. And they have the experience on video tape. "It was his first deer and everyone likes to be with their son or daughter when they kill their first deer," Tim Magee said. "It was more fun watching him kill the deer than me shooting it." Will Magee, however, did give his dad a little credit. But not much. "It was kind of good having him there, I guess," he said. The young Magee was hunting a field in Urichville, Ohio, which is near Columbus. He was using a gun (7mm/08) that was handed down to him by his sister, Lauren, who killed her first deer when she was 13 while hunting with her dad in Alabama. Will Magee bagged the deer on the second day of a scheduled three-day hunt on a portion of land that belongs to a Christian organization called Questhaven ( The first day, while hunting on a tree stand, two bucks walked out of the thicket. But the deer remained at the furthermost part of the field, meaning Magee didn't have a sure shot and didn't want to risk it. The second day was all Magee. Just before dark, the eight-point stepped out of the thicket, but instantly smelled the hunters who were down wind from the feeder. Frustrated, the deer left the feeder for a brief moment and ran into the thicket before entering the field again. At this point, the deer was mad and looked right at the Magees. In fact, the deer rubbed the ground as if it were going to charge before snorting at Will and stepping behind the feeder. It was at this moment that Will Magee raised the rifle to his shoulder, determined to wait the deer out. Either darkness was going to set in or the deer was going to find itself face down in the grass. Will Magee, only eight, wasn't giving in. The deer then emerged from behind the feeder. Tim Magee, perhaps more anxious than his son, wondered if his son was going to pull the trigger. "Just when I was signalling to him, he shot," he said. "A perfect shot right through the shoulder. The deer never moved, just fell to the ground." With the deer on the ground, dad looked back to see his son's expression. "He had his hands over his ears," Tim Magee said. "His ears were ringing from the echo." But that was fine. A young hunter had been baptized into the great outdoors and he was feeling it. "It was great," Will Magee said. "It was my first deer, but I thought I was going to miss it. My dad was taping it and all I saw on the tape was his fur flying around. "I was feeling like I needed to scream up and down. The doe that was with the deer ran off like there was a fire. She was out of there. I was telling myself, 'you shot a deer, you shot a deer.' The deer is headed to the taxidermist. "Will is a real cautious hunter," Tim Magee said. "He will not pull off on a shot. He is really good and hits the targets when we practice. He puts the bullet right where it needs to go. "I don't know who was excited the most when the deer fell to the ground."</p>

    CRAWFORD, Tex., Nov. 26 -- Dancing to reggae music and hugging her supporters, Cindy Sheehan led an anti-Iraq war rally Saturday at a one-acre campsite adjoining the ranch where President Bush is spending his holiday weekend. As in August, when she galvanized attention and made headlines for days with similar protests, there were songs and speeches and demonstrators holding signs reading "Bring the Troops Home" near the main entrance of the 1,600-acre ranch where Bush has been vacationing since Tuesday. Unlike then, when hundreds came from all over the country for major events at the two campsites named after...

    The strangest thing about the concerted anti-Israeli terror assault that began in fall 2000 is that rather than leading Europeans to rethink their assumptions about Israel and the Palestinians, it touched off a bizarre orgy of Blaming the Victim that must be unique in history. The sight of babies being blown up in their strollers, teenagers being blown up while waiting in line at a disco, off-duty soldiers having their eyes gouged out and being dragged burning through a street by a mob, a pregnant mother and her four children being machine-gunned to death in a carand so on and...

    We, the Witness Protection Program For Freepers, aka the Wild Turkeys, aka the Coalition of the Sane, have through mutual discussion and rigourous thought, determined that: 1. The discussion threads regarding Terri Schiavo (hereafter referred to as "TS") have become too full of innuendo, rumormongering, hyperbole, hysteria, namecalling, paranoia, and general poor behavior to warrant participation. 2. Said threads have degenerated into "echo chambers", wherein the same, common thoughts are continually posted again and again, and the same old disreputable, unconfirmed and/or false urban myths are propagated. 3. Anyone who joins in said theads with alternative viewpoints to the most...

    Washington -- The county council of Howard County, Maryland -- a suburb of Washington and Baltimore -- made headlines recently when it passed legislation prohibiting the scheduling of public hearings on the two Eid holidays, the most holy days in Islam. Although Howard County's action is unusual, it does reflect a growing trend toward official recognition of Muslim holidays in the United States, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which informally tracks such developments. Especially since the attacks of September 11, 2001, "more and more Muslims are working to get their communities integrated into U.S. society and have...

    Five days before 9/11, Charles Vincent bought his first Koran. Six weeks later, while smoke was still pouring from the remains of the World Trade Center, he formally converted to Islam in the mosque attached to the Islamic Cultural Center on 96th Street and Third Avenue in New York City. A blonde, blue-eyed 29-year-old from Torrance, California, he readily admits that he chose an unlikely moment to fall in love with the world's most newsworthy religion. But in the three years since, his devotion to Islam has only deepened. Like a growing number of white Americans and Europeans, he has...

    Friends and supporters gathered by the hundreds Thursday to celebrate the opening of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin's new abortion clinic and women's health center. They toured the sleek new $1.9 million Comprehensive Reproduction Health Center, 3706 Orin Road, then went to an adjacent tent for wine, canapes and congratulatory speeches. Deborah Hobbins, a Planned Parenthood regional vice president, told the crowd that her vision for the clinic was "to create a place of dignity where women could feel respect for their health care choices. I think we've done that." Outside, a handful of anti-abortion activists picketed, a couple of them...
