And While The Adoring Media Focuses on Kerry/Edwards

: “Sen. John Kerry emphasized that he agrees with the Catholic Church’s interpretation that life begins at conception but repeated his opposition to banning abortions.
‘I oppose abortion, personally,’ Kerry told the Telegraph Herald in Dubuque, Iowa, where he campaigned over the weekend.
‘I don’t like abortion. I believe life does begin at conception. But I can’t take my Catholic belief, my article of faith, and legislate it on a Protestant or a Jew or an atheist … who doesn’t share it. We have separation of church and state in the United States of America.'”

Folks, if human life begins at conception, what does that make the taking of that life? And what does it make a politician who would make the above statement?

A Statement from John Kerry’s first choice for Vice President:

Sen. McCain:

It�s a big thing this war.

It�s a fight between right and wrong, good and evil.

And should our enemies acquire for their arsenal the chemical, biological and nuclear weapons they seek, this war will become an even bigger thing.

It will become a fight for our survival.

America is under attack by depraved enemies who oppose our every interest and hate every value we hold dear.

It is the great test of our generation and he has led with great moral clarity and firm resolve. He has not wavered, he has not flinched from the hard choices, he was determined and remains determined to make this world a better, safer, freer place. He deserves not only our support but our admiration. That�s why I am honored to introduce to you the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

We Are All Soldiers Now

I began this blog over 2 years ago for 2 reasons.

The first was to keep an evergrowing email list of folks both at work, and around the country informed without getting fired from my job for inappropriate internet use.

The second, and far more important reason, was as my own personal reaction to 9/11. This has remained a guiding principle of this site. It will remain so.

I may bounce around other topics, from Saturn to Haliburton and back again, but in the end, The War is the focus.

As part of that, I offer a reprise of my all time favorite Peggy Noonan essay, more appropriate now than the day it was written back in November of 2001.

As the conventions and General Election approach, the threat of another attack increases exponentially. Many analysts believe the purpose of an attack is to sway the election, much as the terrorists did in Spain.

If this is the case, it begs a very important question:

Who do you think the terrorists would prefer as President?

The easy and intellectually dishonest answer is neither George W. Bush or John Kerry. This avoids the question.

One of them will serve the next 4 years.

Who does Osama Bin Laden want in that position?

This, more than any other question, should influence your vote this November.
