From my buddy : Gribbit:

Abstinence Is Harmful? News To Us

Today the American Civil Liberties Union issued a press release which is featured on their website’s ” Newsroom” page that is titled, ” ACLU Hails Rhode Island Department of Education Efforts to Stop the Use of Harmful “Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage” Curriculum in Public Schools “. Only the ACLU and a liberal state like Rhode Island could find abstaining from sexual activity harmful.

The fact is that abstinence is the only form of birth control and STD prevention that works 100% that it is employed. By practicing the ultimate in safe sex, NO SEX, no children are unnecessarily slaughtered in the name of choice, no drugs are being used in order to prevent pregnancy for the sake of promiscuity, and no one will need to be treated for sexually transmitted diseases. So what is the ACLU’s difficulty with teaching this effective form of birth control? Homosexuals in this nation cannot be married in any other state than Massachusetts. And no other state except Massachusetts recognizes marriages performed to same sex couples. If abstinence is taught as it should be, as the ONLY effective form of birth control and STD prevention, homosexuals will not be receiving the indoctrination that the ACLU believes that they should.

By accepting that teenagers are going to have sex before marriage and taking a position of defeatism in the war to prevent this from occurring, we are then telling teenagers to go ahead and have sex. This is akin to telling your child not to shop lift but if they are going to anyway to not get caught. Then teaching them methods on not getting caught as opposed to teaching them to just plain not do it.

Abstinence is not harmful, it is the only truly safe and healthy program out there. Condoms don’t protect against Human Papilloma Virus or Herpes. Hormonal birth control don’t protect against STDs and is only 92% effective (this means if you have sex 100 times, you have an 8% chance of getting pregnant even with the pill when taken as directed.). And we all know how many women forget to take the pills. Add to that the dangers when artificially changing the hormonal balance in a woman’s system can lead to increased chances of cancer and heart disease.

Fact – Condoms break, leak, and do not protect against HPV or Herpes. Some people are have allergies to latex.
Fact – Birth Control Pills don’t protect against STDs and mess with the hormonal balance in the woman’s body.
Fact – Herpes is transmitted by skin contact and requires no fluid transfer.
Fact – A fetus is a living being called a baby not tissue or a parasite.
Fact – Abortion has been linked to increased occurrences of Breast Cancer.
Fact – Post abortive women experience a high rate of depression and repeat abortions.
Fact – Some risks associated with abortion include internal bleeding and infection.
Fact – The only way to avoid these complications is to not have sex and the ACLU calls teaching this fact harmful.

AfricaN IsraeliS

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

Why do you suppose so many are outraged by even the very existence of the State of Israel?

I contend it is because they have been duped. The association has been made that has likened Israelis to “The White Man” a.k.a. the bad ole European oppressors and A-rabs, who prefer the fictitious name “Palestinians”, to Blacks or Native Americans namely, indigenous people of colour who have been abused and kicked out of what they purport to be their native home.

Then the liberals or or even some conscientious, though ignorant people - sound the cry of Racism! Colonialism!..and the A-rab propaganda machine is off to races.

Reads like a real fairy tale, however, without a morsel of Truth.

For starters, most of the Jooooooooooos in Israel are not even White. While the A-rabs were ceremoniously rejecting those who fled their homes and allowing the formation of “refugee camps” for their people instead, hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees from Arab countries flocked to Israel, who welcomed them with open arms. They and their generations of children make up the majority of Jews in Israel.

As to some in the Black community, who have been known to use the heated term “apartheid” when referring to Israel– I say – not only were women and Jews a huge part of the Civil War Movement in this country, but a large majority of the Jews who never left Israel were from North Africa. So I suppose we could call them “African-Israelis” if you will.
Many others came from what is present day Iraq, Morocco Egypt,Syria,and Yemen. Not exactly “White Europeans” eh?

And as they say..The rest is history.
Once the Muzlims conquered Israel, Jews were massacred, abused and oppressed for over 1,300 years.

Oh, and the next time you read in the news how the “vicious Israelis” stole -”the West Bank” or “Gaza”.Let me fill you in on a tidbit. After Israel was declared a State in 1948, and the
A-rabs subsequently chose to wage war to destroy her…Guess who controlled “the West Bank” and “Gaza”?..
The “White Imperialist Israel”?..Sorry. No cigar. They were controlled by Jordan and Egypt.
THEY built the “refugee’ camps to throw their own brothers and sisters in.
Now that sounds like racism and apartheid to me.

The only reason “the refugee” problem is Israel’s to begin with is due to yet another war waged against her in 1967. Despite that- Israel shelled out millions for their “inherited A-rab population” in medical, housing and educational needs alone.
Bear in mind, dear readers , there are 22 A-rab States …doing less than nothing to ameliorate the very “refugee” problem they created.

Sorry if the facts don’t offer the sanctuary of political correctness.

GaG Order for CarteR

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

They’re angry, they’re motivated, and they say their voices are going to be heard: A conservative, pro-military group has launched an effort to have former President Jimmy Carter censured by Congress.
Group Seeks to Censure Jimmy CarterThat effort includes a CensureCarter website, ( Censure Carter )-which includes photos of Carter with various dictators and terrorists. Next week, Move America Forward said it will unveil a television ad campaign to spread the word about the effort to censure Carter.

“…Carter has attacked American foreign policy in North Korea while praising that nation’s brutal dictator; he has attacked American foreign policy in Cuba while propping up “the murderous thug, Fidel Castro.” And now Carter is condemning American and Israeli policies against terrorism while urging support for the terrorist organization, Hamas.

A non-binding censure resolution serves as a Congressional reprimand, and can be issued against either a sitting or former president or other political leader.

There is a growing constituency of Americans who have had enough of “Blame America First” politicians hurting our nation and the important missions being served by our troops in the fight against terrorism,”

Censure is in essence a process of Congressional reprimand, namely the political equivalent of a strongly-worded letter. Less severe than outright expulsion, a censure, otherwise known as condemnation or denouncement- is a formal statement of disapproval, which can have a powerful psychological effect.

Perhaps Carter only influences those of a weak mind who are susceptible and vulnerable to his pathological, anti-American and anti-Semitic lies. But he clearly needs to jolted back into reality.
Perhaps his senses have been temporarily disabled, or his mind unable to grasp the consequences of his words.

It is widely known that all spiritual teachers have uniformly recommended “the practice of silence.”
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21).

It is high time to remove that power from Jimmy Carter.

FooD For ThoughT?

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

What’s the first thing that springs to mind when I say : FOOD?

A plate of pleasure with guilt to follow has some insights.

“Guilt about the pleasure of eating is nothing new, and if diet gurus sound almost evangelical, there’s a very good reason for it.
..although cloaked in the language of science and nutrition, prevailing Western preoccupations with diet, self-control and the body stretch back…to antiquity.

Clearly people find pleasure in eating foods, but pleasure challenges self-control, and pleasure has a long history in our culture of being highly problematic because it challenges reason and logic – what you’re doing is caving in to bodily and hedonistic senses.”

Let’s face it. Food = Pleasure (at least for most people I know, or at least the ones willing to admit it..Heh)

Do you eat for “pleasure” or just for its dietary benefit. (Yea…Rrrrrright..Heh)

The pleasure of food is the sensation of well-being that derives from the fulfillment of a basic natural instinct.
What many don’t realize is that the pleasure we get from food is not only physical sensation, but emotional and psychological as well.

But..What to eat?
Bland rice cake or rich, decadent brownie?


Do you monitor the content or gobble down the gummie bears?

Do you consume more if the food is attractively presented?
Do you appreciate food for its its “ritualistic value”…dinner with the family at 6.
Is the only food you can eat without guilt a celery stalk or carrot stick?
Do ya feel “deprived” if you don’t have your “favorite” dish or dessert?

Some find the ultimate pleasure in eating the creations of a well-known chef, whereas others enjoy the emotions associated with a “home cooked meal” by a loved one.
Historically, food has also been a way to cope with stressIce-cream anyone?

Try as we may to avoid it, so much of our social life revolves around food.

So g’head, indulge that appetite, but don’t forget to give thanks to the One who gave you the glory of this simple pleasure.

CA-IR Doesn’t CARE

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

“What does the Council on American-Is-lamic Relations have to say about the trial of an Afghan Mus-lim who may get the death penalty for converting to Christianity? Nothing so far, noted a conservative, pro-family group.

“Ibr-ahim Hooper of the Council on American-Is-lamic Relations so far has been silent,” the Family Research Council said in an email message on Tuesday.”
Is-lamic Advocacy Group Silent on Afghan Apostasy Trial..they have more important concerns apparently….

“Some of CA-IR’s leaders, along with other Mus-lims, met on Tuesday with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Karen Hughes and top officials of the National Security Council. But the meetings focused on outreach efforts to the Mus-lim world and “how to address growing levels of Islamophobia in the West,” CA-IR said.”

Rrrrrrrrrrrrrright..CA-IR can just check their integrity at the door.
They are at best a joke and circus sideshow. but at worst- the very Izzzzzzzlamic fundamentalist regime they purport to ahem…object to.

Parents of son charged in beating may lose girl

This gives new meaning to the word “brother.” An archived story:

“MADISON HEIGHTS — The Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday will attempt to permanently end the parental rights of a Madison Heights couple who police say neglected to seek medical help for their daughter after her older brother allegedly beat her over her relationship with a non-Muzlim boy.
The 15-year-old girl, who is a Madison Heights Lamphere High junior, suffered a broken back in the beating, according to court documents.

She complained of the injury to her parents, but they didn’t take her to a doctor because they condoned the punishment her brother gave her,” said Robert Zivian, an assistant Oakland County prosecuting attorney assigned to the neglect case.

The following day, when the girl was still complaining of injuries, her parents called for an ambulance, according to Madison Heights Police Detective Sgt. Ron Hillman.

She was in a lot of pain, and when she eventually went back to school, it was in a wheelchair, Hillman said. It was too painful for her to stand for any period of time.

The girl initially told hospital workers she fell, Hillman said. After being questioned by police, she admitted that her brother had beaten her because he was upset over her relationship with a boy who was not of their religious faith, Hillman said.

She wrote me a two-page statement about how both her brother and her parents disapproved of the situation,” he said. “She wrote that’s what prompted the beating in the first place.”

Now she is recanting the original story and also claiming she fell down some stairs,” Zivian said.”

Violence can shatter your life in many ways. In our culture most often the violent person who punches, kicks, rapes, and mutilates women is a husband, former husband, boyfriend, or ex-boyfriend.
One of the first pieces of advice offered to victims of violence is to seek help from other family members and friends or community organizations.
A brother perhaps?
Big brothers are the ones who protect their little sisters from the “bad boys” aren’t they?

Perhaps Muzlims need to have some new words put into their vocabularies: Umm…this is called ABUSE:
physical abuse.
psychological or emotional abuse.
sexual assault.
(and’s a crime not to mention a violation of human rights.)

To say that this religion and culture don’t legitimize and therefore perpetuate violence against women is a bold faced lie. This story is no isolated “incident”.
The fact is- Muzlim women all over the globe live in an atmosphere of terror, which often permeates abusive relationships.

Contary to the mythical liberal notion, we cannot transform the cultural, social, and legal environment in the Muzlim community that gives rise to and condones widespread violence against women.
It would require long-term commitment and strategies involving all parts of their government and society.
Only when women are viewed as equal members of society will violence against them longer be an invisible norm but, instead, a shocking aberration.

And when praytell will that happen?

Ilegals Again?

Illegals involved in crashes, traffic stops, say authorities

My buddy David is jus gunna loveeeeeeeeee this one!

“Four vehicles loaded with 42 suspected illegal immigrants were involved in separate accidents early today on highways in Eastern Colorado, authorities say. Two other vehicles were stopped on the Western Slope, with more suspected illegal immigrants inside.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were in the process of arresting each of the suspected illegal immigrants, Wynn said.

At 6:35 a.m., a 1995 Ford Econoline carrying 16 people rolled on U.S. Highway 6 near Brush. No one was injured in the accident and all 16 occupants were taken into custody by immigration officials, Master Trooper Ron Watkins said.

At 7:11 a.m. on Interstate-70 near Seibert, a Chevy Suburban rolled with 10 occupants aboard.

At 8:03 a.m. on Interstate-76 near Brush a 1999 Chevy Suburban rolled with four occupants. Some of the passengers had minor injuries, but no one was taken to a hospital, Watkins said

At 8:19 a.m. on Interstate-76 near Brush, a 1998 GMC van with 12 occupants rolled. No one was injured, he said.

The series of accidents happened as a stream of illegal immigrants are entering the U.S., mostly from Mexico, at the beginning of the growing season, Wynn said.”

OK…May I delicately point out:

Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, “Improper Entry by Alien,” any citizen of any country other than the United States who:

Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or

Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.

Illegal Immigration is a Crime
“Apologists for illegal immigration like to paint it as a victimless crime. But in fact, illegal immigration causes substantial harm to American citizens and legal immigrants, particularly those in the most vulnerable sectors of our population–the poor, minorities, and children.

Illegal immigration causes an enormous drain on public funds. The seminal study of the costs of immigration by the National Academy of Sciences found that the taxes paid by immigrants do not cover the cost of services received by them. We cannot provide high quality education, health care, and retirement security for our own people if we continue to bring in endless numbers of poor, unskilled immigrants.”

Well, ya best buckle yer seat belts now…they’re on the roads…and from the way it looks…it’s gunna be one bumpy ride.

An AmericaN SoldieR

Monday, March 20th, 2006

Coast Guard.
An American Soldier.

They stand tall, take an oath and Swear, “To protect and serve.”
Yet some of us feel they never quite get the praise that they deserve.

Some of us speak up for the American Soldier, one of the most generous and possibly the least appreciated person on all the earth.

This is my attempt in a small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrifice themselves for us.
Some whose fates are still unknown and some- still waiting, to come home.

As some of my buddies know, I have had the blessing to work with soldiers returning from Iraq as well as their families. Make no mistake, my friends, we stand now at a critical moment in the history of our civilization, beset by enemies who irrationally embrace their own destruction along with ours…and yet our fate lies in the hands of the American soldier.

As some of you know Blue Star Chronicles dedicate themselves to honor and even whip up local support for our men and women in the United States Armed Forces.

Let’s give them some ‘muscle’ shall we.

S’cuse me while I hurl.

Too many boys enlightens us..

“Twenty years ago, the ultrasound scanning machine came into widespread use in Asia. The invention of Dr. Macovski, a Stanford University researcher, the device quickly gave pregnant women a cheap and readily available means to determine the sex of their unborn children.

The results, by the millions, are now coming to maturity in Bangladesh, China, India and Taiwan. By choosing to give birth to males – and to abort females – millions of Asian parents have propelled the region into an extraordinary experiment in the social effects of gender imbalance.

China, India and other nations have outlawed the use of prenatal diagnostic techniques to select the sex of an unborn child. But bribery and human ingenuity have made it easy for prospective parents to skirt the law; a suitably compensated ultrasound technician need only smile or frown at the expectant mother.

Women now risk being kidnapped and forced into prostitution and wedlock. Mass sexual frustration is adding a potent ingredient to an increasingly volatile regional cocktail of problems that include surging economic growth, urbanization, drug abuse and environmental degradation.

Understanding the effect of the testosterone overload may be most important in China, the rising Asian superpower. Prompted by expert warnings, the Chinese authorities are already groping for answers.

In 2004, President Hu Jintao asked the country’s senior demographers to study whether the country’s one-child policy – which sharply accentuates the preference for males – should be revised.

In 19th-century northern China, drought, famine and locust invasions apparently provoked a rash of female infanticide.

Some Chinese experts speculate, off the record, that there might be a connection between the shortage of women and the spread of open gay life since 2001, when homosexuality was deleted from the official “Classification of Mental Disorders.” It is possible to dream up all kinds of scenarios: Mumbai and Shanghai may soon rival San Francisco as gay capitals.

More likely, the organized crime networks that traffic in women will shift their deliveries toward Asia and build a brothel culture large enough to satisfy millions of sexually frustrated young men.”

Deeeeeeeeeeep breath.
OK, Let me get this straight.
In Asia- Women are needed for one thing only: to assume the role of stimulators of men’s visual and sexual interest. Just like in the pornography industry- women exist solely to fulfill men’s desires — they have no real substance of their own. To see anyone as existing only to serve you and to fulfill you is, one of the worst forms of dehumanization.

These ahem..”men’, for lack of a better term.. can value and appreciate the physical characteristics of women but ignore her personal “being” or any of the inner complexities that are inherent in human beings. She is therefore: disposable.
This hatred, scorn, hostility and animosity is so strong that mothers kill off their own baby daughters.

It is the absence of all compassion, the absence of a recognition of even a common humanity for “girls”.

Thus, Women should be allowed to live when sexually expedient but murdered before they are even born if they are deemed “of no use.” After all they are nothing more than a collection of body parts.

But how ironic?..

The fact these very same “men” now need women for sex.. apparently feels quite disempowering (particulary since they killed off all the girls..and can’t seem to “get some”)..which only adds to the anger and resentment these muderers and misogynists feel thus justifying forced prostitution, sexual slavery and lives of endless Hell and torture for thousands of girls and women.

What I’d like to know is: Where are the women and men demanding accountability for these mass murders?
And..when Is Hollywood putting out this movie..and who is the leading role?

A Ladys Ruminations has an excellent essay on modern journalism and President Bush.
