Wesley Clark Gives FOX Their Due

Wesley Clark Gives FOX Their Due

This is a must-see. Presidential candidate Wesley Clark looks very Presidential in this interview
with FOX's slick and apt truth-twister David Asman.

All I can say is: GET HIM,LENNY!

More on "Balanced" News: Take a look at this conversation

It's about "balance" and what it means when it comes to news journalism today.

Is "balance" being used to be a deceitful word?

You bet your Asman it is!

Read some of these sweet notes to Bush from his allies in the UK.

speaking of the birth of America and our relationship with England

"....It was pointed out to me that the last noted American to visit London stayed in a glass box dangling over the Thames. A few might have been happy to provide similar arrangements for me."

Did you know: "Bush was not invited to address a joint session of the houses of parliament, apparently out of concern that his presence would provoke embarrassing protests by legislators"?

Romney Proposes Constitutionalizing Discrimination

Romney Proposes Constitutionalizing Discrimination

--Massachussetts Governor denies that fairness and equality under the law are the bedrocks of our constitution and must apply to everyone--


Massachussetts Governor Mitt Romney says he'll push for a constitutional amendment to block gay couples from getting married in response to a ruling by the state's highest court that could otherwise let gay couples wed.

He said, "I agree with 3,000 years of recorded history. Marriage is an institution between a man and a woman ... and our constitution and laws should reflect that."

This is not an appropriate issue for Constitutional amendment.
Limiting civil freedoms for religious reasons (which is what this is all about) is antithetical to the idea of individual liberty.

The freedom of religion already exists. No one is suggesting that it be taken away.
When all people see that love, in reality, rules the teachings of religion, they may come to
reconciliatory terms with the gay community.

But I don't see that happening very soon.
Do you?

Regardless of where we stand on the religious issue, none of us should stand by and watch our
Constitution being abused as a rag for the culture wars.

If anyone reading this does not sit down and write a letter to their Congressional representatives to end the madness of the idea of a Constitutional amendment, you'll only have yourself to blame when these monsters destroy the Constitution.

I especially appeal to the women of this nation.
We know (or should know) how hard the struggle was to secure the 19th amendment.
We still cannot get an Equal Rights Amendment.
Yet, these beasts want to take us backwards and cut civil rights with a new amendment to place
limits upon our liberties as women......
women who will not be free to enter civil union with whom we please should they succeed.

In the words of Matilda Joslyn Gage:

"the world has seemingly awaited the advent of heroic souls who once again should dare all things for the truth. The woman who possesses love for her sex, for the world, for truth, justice and right, will not hesitate to place herself upon record as opposed to falsehood, no matter under what guise of age or holiness it appears."

Act today!


SEE today's "Cup o' Joe" for interesting commentary on the issue.
