    Same-sex marriages will begin within days in New Jersey after the state's highest court ruled unanimously Friday to uphold a lower-court order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay that was sought by Gov. Chris Christie's administration. "The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today," the court said in an opinion by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. "The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative."(continued)
  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Saying Life Begins Conception is ‘Extreme and Radical’

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Thursday that for states to enact constitutional amendments that say human life begins at conception is “an extreme and radical step.” “For the vast majority of Americans, including people on both sides of the abortion issue, this is an extreme and radical step,” she said. Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Wasserman-Schultz said that so-called personhood amendments are a “divisive, dangerous, and destructive” attack on women. “To American women, their reproductive health and choice is an intensely personal and private issue between themselves, their families, and their doctors,”...

    Try it yourself. What is the leftist position on any subject? Just recall what Sister Mary Elizabeth would say at St. Monica’s School. Recall what Pastor Johnson would say at the First Baptist Church. Recall what Rabbi Friedman would say at Congregation Beth Sholom. Recall what Miss Murphy would say in high-school civics class. Recall what Gunny Sanchez would say at Camp Pendleton. Recall what Mr. Gunderson would say as he taught you to adjust a carburetor. Then take the exact opposite. Thanks, Groucho, for giving us Professor Wagstaff. By his zany antics, he clarified the basis of leftist thought....

    First the liberals destroyed the value of our money - principally through the policies of Roosevelt, Johnson and Carter, which led to hyper-inflation. This is happening again under Obama. Then the liberals destroyed our culture, glorifying the use of abortion as a birth-control method, and glorifying the use of drugs and casual sex. The result of this glorification of abortion, drugs and hook-up sex can be seen all around us as our civilization crumbles. Our movies and television programs reflect this crumbling. Then the liberals destroyed our schools and our colleges, dumbing down the curricula and substituting the study of...

    Last year Mr Gore's venture capital firm loaned a small California firm $75m to develop energy-saving technology. The company, Silver Spring Networks, produces hardware and software to make the electricity grid more efficient. The deal appeared to pay off in a big way last week, when the Energy Department announced $3.4 billion in smart grid grants, the New York Times reports. Of the total, more than $560 million went to utilities with which Silver Spring has contracts. (snip) Mr Gore had said that he is simply putting his money where his mouth is.

Mr Justice Coleridge, who presided over the preliminary divorce hearings of Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, will accuse Gordon Brown of prioritising the abolition of plastic bags over support for families, and say the Government is "fiddling while Rome burns".

    WASHINGTON, July 24, 2006 – Enemy fighters in Afghanistan continue to use homemade bombs to terrorize the civilian population, a U.S. spokesman there said today. "Enemy extremists continue their destructive behavior using improvised explosive devices to spread fear and terror among the Afghan people," Army Col. Thomas Collins, a spokesman for Combined Forces Command Afghanistan said in a news briefing. A suicide car bomb struck a convoy this morning injuring two coalition soldiers. Officials did not release the soldiers' nationality. Also this morning, a suicide motorcycle bomb drew Afghan soldiers and police to an area in Farah province, where they...

    1/30/2006 9:13:00 AM  Birth rules degrade U.S. immigrationGuest Opinion by Rep. Tom Tancredo After years of lip service and outright neglect, immigration reform is finally front and center on Washington’s agenda. The issue has such resonance it seems every congressman has introduced a bill on the subject. At least in the House, a consensus is emerging to secure our borders, increase worksite enforcement and, now, revoke birthright citizenship. Currently, the U.S. grants citizenship automatically to every person born in our country, except children of foreign diplomats. That includes legal permanent residents, temporary visitors, nonimmigrants and illegal aliens. Obviously this...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    WASHINGTON - Widely recognized as a military hawk, President Richard M. Nixon fretted privately over the notion of any no-holds-barred nuclear war, newly released documents from his time at the White House reveal. Visions of such an all-out war involving nuclear missiles were unpalatable from the first days of Nixon's presidency, starting in 1969 and lasting until the summer of 1974, when he resigned during the Watergate scandal. Recently declassified papers from that time in history show that Nixon wanted an alternative to the option of full-scale nuclear war — a plan for a gentler war, one that could ultimately...

    Baby Killer! Nazi! Gulag! Genghis Khan! Khmer Rouge! Torturer! And more! These are the charges and shouts heard by Americans against the U.S. military during the Vietnam War and now. Sadly, they're spoken and yelled by Americans, who should know better. During Vietnam, some radical college students used this offensive and hurtful language. Now, these defamers have graduated into positions of power and influence throughout America's institutions. They're at it again. They haven't learned anything from the mass murders, atrocities and death camps perpetrated by their Indochinese communist heroes. They haven't learned anything from the slaughter of almost 3,000 on...

    No….I’m not referring to your personal computer here….my exclamatory title refers to Political Correctness! As we all know (and how could we not), political correctness (PC), has become the scourge of our society, every bit as vexing as the virus that attacks your personal computer, perhaps even as vile as a venereal disease that somehow, someway might find its way to invading your pristine body. PC appears to be fully entrenched in our society and its invasiveness may be just as destructive as those aforementioned viruses. Essentially, PC is attacking our freedoms and our culture.

    Things have never looked so good for gay activists. In November, the Supreme Court declared state anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional. And the Supreme Court of Massachusetts opened the door to gay marriage. It seems the entire gay political agenda is about to be signed, sealed, and delivered. Why then, as a black activist, deeply committed to the principles of freedom and equality under the law, do I see these developments as dangerous and destructive? The gay front would like to be viewed as the latest chapter of the civil rights movement. According to their reasoning, gays are America's newest oppressed minority,...
