They want you to pay for sex change operations

The GLBT activists started by asking for "tolerance." When they got that they started demanding acceptance. When they got that they started vilifying and punishing those who disagreed with their lifestyles. Now they want you to pay for their sex change operations!

The death of Anwar al-Awlaki

Today the man who absolutely crucified President Bush for waterboarding foreign enemy combatants, proudly got up an announced the killing of an an enemy combatant who was a U.S. citizen.

For some on the Left it is apparently evil to submit foreign terrorists to "enhanced interrogation" but it is OK to kill terrorists who are U.S. citizens.

I applaud the U.S. military for taking out Anwar al-Awlaki but the hypocrisy by some on the Left is so thick you would need a chainsaw to cut through it.

Iranian Christian pastor sentenced to death

An Iranian Christian pastor has been sentenced to death for refusing to convert to Islam.

Kudos to the Obama administration for publicly condemning the Iranian government for their violation of freedom of religion!

Giving the death penalty to Muslims who convert to other religions has gone on since the time of Muhammad. Muhammad himself personally ordered the execution of some who had turned back from his new religion of Islam. The difference in the Iranian case is that this pastor has never been Muslim! The Iranian supreme court is demanding that the pastor "return" to the religion of his "ancestors."

Islam is so intellectually weak and indefensible that the only way it can maintain its large numbers is by threats, intimidation and violence. Muslims who deny this should start a worldwide movement to allow true freedom of religion in Islam by removing all penalties, intimidations, and consequences for converting away from Islam.

Rewarding food-stamp dependency

You just couldn't make this stuff up:
In its quest to promote taxpayer-funded entitlement programs, the Obama Administration has actually rewarded one state with a $5 million bonus for its efficiency in adding food-stamp recipients to already bulging rolls.
Think of a drug dealer using incentives to get people addicted to his services so the people would be dependent on him and support him. That's the Obama administration! Such a blatant power grab is really pretty scary if you stop to think about it.

This crosses the line

Reported on WWLTTV New Orleans:
On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper.
Anyone who has read Recliner Commentaries for very long, knows that I think President Obama is one of the worst Presidents of all time, and yet, I think this billboard is despicable.

We can disagree with our President. We can attack his policies. We can point out his inconsistencies, flaws and even lies. But to depict him as a crying baby in a diaper crosses the line. It not only disrespects the office of the Presidency but it reflects poorly on "we the people."

We can strongly disagree and advocate for our position without personally insulting and demeaning the man. I think Republicans should strongly denounce this disgusting and hateful ad campaign.

Discrimination and Freedom of Religion

Freedom of Religion MUST include the idea that religious groups have the right to limit members to those who agree with their views. Otherwise it is not freedom. Atheists could join in sufficient numbers and vote to make the group atheist!

This doesn't just apply to religion but to every organization. Gay groups should have the right to limit membership to gay's only. Democrat groups should have the right to limit membership to Democrats only. Atheist groups should have the right to limit membership to atheists. As seen in this article, anti-discrimination rules and laws are being used to destroy freedom and even to trump the Constitution.

Granted, some discrimination is evil--like discrimination against people because of their skin color. But the freedom of discriminate on the basis of viewpoint is essential to freedom, both Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech.

Frankly, I think someone needs to make this point.For example, non-gays should join a gay organization in overwhelming numbers and then use their majority to vote to shut down the group. That would probably put an end to this nonsense immediately.

Obama confusing Jews and janitors

In a recent speech President Obama said,
If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, uh, as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that.
No big deal. It's just a slip of the tongue. But if Michelle Bachmann had made the same slip you can bet your bottom dollar that it would have been on NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, many of the major newspapers and all of the liberal blogs--and most of them would have been charging her with anti-Semitism.

More Obama lies

Nationally syndicated columnist, Deroy Murdock calls Obama out on his "do nothing congress" lies. After documenting his case Murdock concludes:
Obama can disagree with every piece of paper passed by the GOP House. But when he slyly bashes Republicans by accusing “this Congress” of “doing nothing,” he simply is lying through his teeth. If Obama wants the entire Congress to get something done, he should tell Harry Reid to wake up and do his job.
Please take time to read this short but excellent article.

The nightmare of Obamacare

About a week ago I woke up one night with pain in my upper abdomen. When it wouldn't go away I went to the emergency room. After a series of tests they told me what they thought the problem was and said that in some cases the problem goes away on its own. If it didn't go away, they said I would need surgery. They admitted me to the hospital for observation.

By the middle of the next day I was in such excruciating pain that I would have preferred to die. The surgeon said that the tests did not indicate that I should be in that much pain, but since I was obviously in extreme pain, he took me in to surgery saying that he may not find anything.

It turns out that the problem was obvious and he was able to fix it (I am recovering well, thank you).

That got me to thinking. What if Obamacare had been fully implemented? What if my test results were forwarded up the line to some bureaucrat who determined that I really shouldn't be in that much pain and therefore, the bureaucrat would  not authorize the surgery?

In other words, what if the surgery decision had been taken out of the hands of my surgeon? I could have been left suffering unbearably excruciating pain just because some bureaucrat didn't think my test results justified surgery!

Obamacare is a nightmare!

A pilot scheduled to fly a hijacked plane on 9/11

Powerful story of the pilot who was scheduled to fly one of planes that was hijacked on 9/11. It's 15 minutes long but it goes fast and is well worth your time (Hat tip: W. Johnson).

Another perspective on 9/11

Here's another perspective on the observance of 9/11.

Covering up Obama's gaff

It's one thing to have a decidedly Left bias, but when you deliberately alter your sources to cover up your man's blunder--as PBS has done--you have moved from journalism to blatant propaganda!

Evangelicals need not attend

The Washington National Cathedral will be holding a 9/11 interfaith prayer vigil. It will include, "a rabbi, Buddhist nun and incarnate lama, a Hindu priest, the president of the Islamic Society of North America and a Muslim musician.

No evangelicals were invited. "Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told Fox News Radio the lineup was better suited for the United Nations than the United States."

My question is this: Why would Evangelicals want to attend anyway? Somehow I can't imagine Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Micah or other great Jewish prophets attending an interfaith prayer conference with the prophets of Ba'al or the priests of Molech, etc. 

When Paul traveled through Lystra he could undoubtedly have saved himself a lot of trouble by organizing an interfaith prayer meeting rather than telling the people they should turn from their religions to serve the true God who made heaven and earth (Acts 14:11-15). The same is true in Ephesus where Paul persuaded many people that their religions were false religions (Acts 19:23-27).

I think Evangelicals are right to point out that this is political correctness gone amok, but they should organize their own prayer vigil and avoid the apostate National Cathedral like the plague.

"Let's take these son's of bitches out"

Talking about engaging in a war against the TEA party, the Teamsters' president said,"Let's take these son's of bitches out."

He was apparently warming up for Obama who was to speak next. What I'd like to know is whether President Obama publicly renounced such violent, intolerant, uncivil and very over-the-top rhetoric?

I think both the Teamsters' president and President Obama owe the American people an apology.

White supremacist group to protest

A white supremacist group is planning to hold a rally in protest against the back racist thugs who attacked white people at the Wisconsin State Fair.

Ironically, the two groups have much more in common than they realize. They are united in their racist hatred. Their differences are only skin deep.
