"I guess Bush must be a puppet master and then what does that make Obama a puppet?"

Genius Envy: Ed Schultz Repudiates Ed Schultz

"The bill makes the insurance mandatory for all Americans. This mandate is one of the most unAmerican things, I think, the Senate has ever done. This isn’t the same thing as mandating for car insurance or home owners insurance. I mean, there’s nothing more personal than your body…Forcing people, by the way, to buy health care, in my opinion, that’s not liberty. It’s not reform. It’s restriction. It’s a restriction of freedom that’s not democratic."

Chairman Mao Adorns White House Christmas Tree

"President Obama and our first lady have chosen a lovely ornament featuring China’s mass murderer, Chairman Mao, to adorn our national Christmas tree at the White House."

Hell No, We Won't Go ... Again

"The Constitution, the oft-forgotten law of the land, does not empower the government to draft its citizens to fight their wars. Daniel Webster, during the War of 1812, made this point very clear.

"'Where is it written in the Constitution, in what article or section is it contained, that you may take children from their parents, and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battles of any war, in which the folly or the wickedness of Government may engage it?'"

War And Peace: Obama Speech Rebukes Anti-War Protesters

"In his acceptance speech in Oslo, Mr. Obama refuted the antiwar crowd. Whether he did so intentionally or not, he provided those who went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan — and those who ordered those wars — the intellectual and moral ammunition against those who opposed the war. He told the truth about war and presented a sophisticated rejoinder to those opposed to war."

I'm Done Defending Obama

"I feel betrayed by the president that we helped elect. The unions played a huge part in Obama's victory. My son Tomas, nearing the end of his rehab here in Chicago, sat in the VIP tent in Grant Park, with Brad Pitt, Oprah, Tammy Duckworth and the like. He was a member of a group called Vets for Obama.

"He cried openly because he was a part of the change--he had hope. He blamed Bush for not only his being shot in Iraq, but for the halt to stem-cell research. Obama was very clear in saying that he would immediately start bringing the troops home.

"I have spoken adamantly all along that Obama just needed a little more time to fix Bush's mistakes. Now, it becomes his mess. I am done defending Obama. If 30,000 isn't a big enough number, how about 30 billion--that is what it will cost in dollars to keep those troops in Afghanistan for one year."

Sydney Morning Herald: Kill Bill: bomb plot revealed

"BILL CLINTON came within minutes of being killed by Osama bin Laden in 1996 when a bomb was placed under a bridge during a trip to the Philippines, according to a new book."

Brother X responds: "It was not Obama, I mean, Osama who wanted Clinton dead. IT WAS BUSH! He and all those other white Republicans could not stand having the first first black president in the White House. Obama is the second first black president."

Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday

“The Separation of Church & State”
By Rev. Wayne Perryman

Secularists have tried to remove the religious meaning from the word “Christmas,” even though the word “Christmas” actually means the “Mass of Christ” (a religious service established by the Catholic Church to honor the birth of Christ). And because they were unsuccessful in their attempt to change its meaning, they now want to replace the greeting “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays,” even though the word “holiday” derives from the terms “holy day,” meaning days set aside for religious purposes. We seem to have the space and the room to recognize everything in our society from gay rights to the right to abort a baby, but no space to recognize the baby boy that ironically found no room in the inn.

As you know, each year the controversy regarding whether or not school children can sing Christmas Carols in school or whether local or national governments can display any observances of Christmas on government property, seem to resurface.

Opponents claim that our Constitution calls for a Separation of Church and State which prohibits such observances. But is this true? Was it the intent of our founding fathers to prohibit Christmas observances from our schools and nativity scenes from government properties when they wrote the words: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof?” The answer to all these questions is, no. The following facts are often overlooked in these discussions.

Most historians agree that the words “Separation of Church State” were never a part of the constitution, they were never a part of any pieces of congressional legislation and they were never part of any proposed legislation. The words (Separation of Church and State) were merely a part of Thomas Jefferson’s private letter to the Danbury Baptist church in 1802, 15 years after the signing of the Constitution. He wrote the church to assured them that Congress was not passing a law or considering a law to establish a national religion.

Thomas Jefferson, the person who coined the phrase “Separation of Church and State” - would have never objected to a having prayer in school or a Nativity Scene on Government properties. We know this to be true because a year before Jefferson wrote the letter to the Danbury church (in 1801), he was not only the President of the United States he was also chairman of the District of Columbia School Board - and as chairman of the school board Jefferson approved a new plan for his school district. The plan called for the use of Bibles and Isaac Watt’s Hymns and Spiritual songs as the principle books to be used - for teaching students.

In 1777, one year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence - Congress passed a bill to import 20,000 Bibles into the United States because there was a national shortage. Five years after importing Bibles into the United States, on September 10, 1782, Congress approved Robert Atkins’ request to publish Bibles for our nation’s public schools. When Congress approved the bill Congress demanded that each Bible include the following statement on the inside cover: The United States Congress recommends this Bible for the inhabitants of the United States. It should also be noted that in 1892, 110 years later, in the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States 143 U.S. 226 (1892), Justice Brewer of the United States Supreme Court ruled, that America “is a Christian nation.”

At the turn of the century (1932), it was Congress that approved the architectural design of the United States Supreme Court which includes the Ten Commandments engraved on two of their large inner doors and two sculptures of Moses holding the Ten Commandments (one on the inside and the other on the outside of the building), so we know that our early Congress would have never objected to singing Christmas Carols in our school rooms or displaying the Ten Commandment displayed in our court rooms. And finally, it is important to note that every state in the Union from Maryland in 1776 to Hawaii in 1959 includes a statement about God in their State Constitution.

Most of the aforementioned events took place when many of our founding fathers were still alive. When the question of the Separation of Church and State was discussed, why didn’t they mention that it was Congress that had 20,000 Bibles imported into the United States in 1777 or that it was Congress that had Bibles printed for our public schools in 1782? Why do they overlook the fact that it was Thomas Jefferson who decided that Bibles should be used in the District of Columbia schools in 1801, 14 years after Congress adopted the First Amendment prohibiting Congress from interfering with religious freedom (where ever it is exercised). We must ask ourselves, if the man who coined the phrase “separation of church and state” is the same man who approved the use of spiritual songs and Bibles for our public schools, why would he be opposed to singing Christmas Carols in school or having Christmas trees in our government buildings?

This year, before school administrators kick Santa Claus out of school and tell the Christ Child that he belongs in a manger but not in the class room, you tell them to go back and revisit our true American History, a history that includes all the blessings that Christ child brought into this world at his birth. Then wish them all to have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holy Day.

You have one as well.

Lots of Chance Since January

AP: Obama defends self against black critics

"Obama said another example is the billions of dollars in aid to states included in the economic stimulus bill, money that was used to save thousands of teachers, firefighters and police officers from losing their jobs. He said many of those workers are black."

That does not fly.

Roger Kimball: The Reid Bill: coercive and unconstitutional

"On the one hand, the Reid Bill depends on a combination of huge general tax increases, which is coupled with special levies on industries such as medical-device and pharmaceutical companies. These tax revenues are then used to fund subsidies for large segments of the population in order to allow them to purchase qualified health-care plans that are sold through a set of State Exchanges that the Reid Bill creates. In order to prevent these subsidies from flowing through to the various health-insurance issuers, the Reid Bill imposes extensive obligations on any health-insurance issuer or health-plan provider that wishes to participate within the system in order to keep them from capturing subsidies meant for others. The effect of the subsidies is to increase the level of health care that will be demanded in the United States. The effect of the regulations is likely to be to impose huge costs on various health-insurance companies as they struggle to meet the influx of demand when they are at the outer limit of their capacity."
