Martha Coakley: Too Immoral for Teddy Kennedy’s Seat
by Ann Coulter
In Tuesday’s primary election, Massachusetts Democrats chose as their Senate nominee a woman who kept a clearly innocent man in prison in order to advance her political career.
Martha Coakley isn’t even fit for the late Teddy Kennedy’s old seat. (What is it about this particular Senate seat?)
During the daycare/child molestation hysteria of the ’80s, Gerald Amirault, his mother, Violet, and sister, Cheryl, were accused of raping children at the family’s preschool in Malden, Mass., in what came to be known as the second-most notorious witch trial in Massachusetts history.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.) told CNSNews.com that using tax dollars from pro-life Americans to pay for insurance plans that cover abortion is morally correct.
Quick! Someone take this…..person….a dictionary!
moral - 1 a : of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior : ethical b : expressing or teaching a conception of right behavior c : conforming to a standard of right behavior d : sanctioned by or operative on one’s conscience or ethical judgment e : capable of right and wrong action 2 : probable though not proved : virtual 3 : perceptual or psychological rather than tangible or practical in nature or effect — mor·al·ly \-?-l?\ adverb
A few synonyms for her perusal: ethical, virtuous, righteous, noble.
Oh, wait a minute. She’s a Democrat. Ethical isn’t really in her vocabulary, is it. Hmmm… Virtuous? Well, perhaps she thinks slaughtering innocent babies is virtuous? Righteous? Self-righteous maybe, but righteous? I don’t think so. And noble doesn’t even come into the scenario.
You can read the whole thing here, and listen to the audio, if you have the stomach. Anger is overcoming at the moment.
I don’t often do a complete copy and past of someone who leans pretty left, but this is one time that it must be done. I couldn’t have said it any better!
What Happens When You Drop Your Animal Off in the Country
By Betsy Phillips (aka Aunt B)
There’s a story this morning in the Tennessean about the problems of animal cruelty in our state. And that reminded me: I want to say something to you people who drive a little way out of town to drop your pets off when you can’t or don’t want to care for them anymore.
I don’t know what you imagine becomes of your pets. Maybe you think they make their way into the wild, living some idyllic life. Maybe you can just put them out of your mind because you have put them out of your sight. I don’t know.
But here’s what happens to them. They die.
Almost all of them. They live a very short time out here and then they die excruciating deaths.
A Desperate December Deal
If you are one of the few Americans who still subscribes, your morning newspaper probably has a headline like this: Democrats Reach Deal on Health Plan. Don’t believe it. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is still light years away from producing the 60 votes necessary to pass Obamacare out of the Senate. And the few details that have leaked out about this new “broad agreement” only reveal just how desperate Reid is to get any bill on to President Obama’s desk by the New Year.
Of course, there is no good policy reason why the Senate should be rushing the reorganization of one-sixth of our nation’s economy through their chamber. As leftist columnist E.J. Dionne has frankly admitted, the December deadline is a purely political invention, created for the sole purpose of enabling President Barack Obama to point to at least one accomplishment during his State of the Union speech in January. Details of the agreement have not been made public, and Senate Democrats are refusing to make them public until they hear back from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). But judging from what little has been selectively leaked to the public, this idea deserves to die:
I’m sure most folks have heard the uproar about the Obama’s not wanting to put up the Nativity in the East Room of the White House.
President Obama and the First Family were planning a “non-religious Christmas,” according to Social Secretary Desiree Rogers. Ms. Rogers reportedly told a gathering of former social secretaries that the Obamas did not intend on putting the Nativity scene on display – a longtime East Room tradition.
I guess he showed his true colors on this one, didn’t he. Gee, I wonder which world leaders was he bowing to this time? I seriously doubt it was the Pope. But, after some serious consideration, and more than just a bit of outrage, it seems the ol’ poser in chief, and clan, have relented.
From the ‘First Lady’s” (?) office:
“It has been a part of White House Christmas decorations in the past, it is on display in the East Room for all to enjoy and it will continue to be a part of White House Christmas decorations moving forward.”
How nice of them to include the REASON for this Season!
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, accused the president of trying to “neuter” Christmas.
“Unlike almost all Americans—including atheists—the Obamas do not give their children Christmas gifts. We know this because Barack bragged about this last year to People magazine. So it should come as no big surprise that he and his wife would like to neuter Christmas in the White House. That’s their natural step—to ban the public display of Christian symbols. Have any doubts? Last April, Georgetown University was ordered to put a drape over the name of Jesus as a condition of the president speaking there.
Well, that’s what liberals do! They fight hard to remove any reference and symbols to our JUDEO/CHRISTIAN history. Are there no Christian teachings in that church he sat in for 20 years? Did he learn nothing about REAL faith? Or was it just a “church” filled with hatred of all things of honor and tradition? Sermons filled with bitterness and racism? He has professed to be a Christian. I’ve seen no indication of this whatsoever.
I honestly don’t care if the Obama’s give presents to their kids or not. That’s their choice. Kids these days seem to expect their parents to go into hock just to GIVE them every little thing their heart desires, which, to me, has totally destroyed the real meaning of the “season of giving”.
At this time of the year, I EXPECT our so called POTUS to display the symbols of our religious foundations, which, by the way, do NOT include a star and crescent!
I’ve no doubt if we had a Jewish president, there would have been no problem with continuing the traditions, long held, by previous administrations, so why wouldn’t a Muslim one? Just sayin’.
Oh, and to my Jewish friends, an early……
