Liberal Facts

Back in the 1920’s Herbert Hoover was quoted as saying “A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage” as one of his campaign slogans promising prosperity if elected president. Unfortunately President Hoover didn’t see the 1929 stock market crash and the Great Depression coming.

Today there is a portion of our society that is less concerned about economic prosperity and more concerned about the access to abortion on demand. One of my beloved (tongue firmly planted in cheek) TV liberals ,Rachel Maddow, who I watch every so often just to see what the other side is up to, and is ever so gay (that use to mean happy), was concerned recently that 87% of counties in the United States had no access to an abortion “clinic”. Rachel’s slogan would be “an abortion clinic in every county, and 3 abortionists in every clinic” is she were running for president.

So I thought I’d do some checking. I checked the 2008 Abortion Statistics for the state of Kansas page 8 of the PDF or Page 6 of the document. 94 of 106 (that’s 89%) of Kansas counties had an abortion performed in them last year. What difference does it make whether a county has an abortion clinic or not when they are still performed at other facilities? Kansas isn’t the most populated of states so what difference does it make if 87% of US counties don’t have abortion clinics when, if I extrapolate the Kansas numbers, that 89% of US counties have abortions performed in them? A number that I’m sure Ms. Maddow’s wouldn’t be happy with until it reaches 100%.

The pro-aborts aren’t much worried about reducing abortions as they say they are, they are only concerned that they are performed everywhere, and that is why I refer to them as pro-aborts.

Increasing Your Daily Prayer

I think most people of faith wish they prayed more than they do at least I know I do. I've been thinking of how to increase my prayer time even if for a few seconds each day. Here are some of my thoughts on when we could pray more. I am sure there are more opportunities but these where the ones that came to mind.

– at stop lights
– waiting for your computer to boot up or shut down
– before & after meals
– in the bathroom
– in the shower
– waiting for the elevator
– waiting in lines
– when driving
– when you awake in the night
– in the drive thru
– before church & on the drive there
– when you pass a church
– whenever you see a crucifix
– whenever you hear or see the name Jesus, Mary, or Joseph

A Trip To Heaven

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake..

And why’s everyone so quiet,
So somber – give me a clue.’
Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’

Remember….Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian
any more than standing in your garage makes you a car .

Every saint has a PAST….
Every sinner has a FUTURE!

Coburn vs. Sotomayor

Senator Coburn, who the New York Times only refers to as Mister in an article released this afternoon, observed that science can now record fetal heartbeats at 14 days post-conception and record fetal brainwaves at 39 days post-conception, yet we have a schizophrenic rule of the law that defines death as the absence of those, but refuses to define life as the presence of those.

Amen Senator Coburn

Surgical Abortions, Thats So 1980s

The Associated Press recently reported that roughly ¼ of American women are now getting abortions via drugs rather than “surgery”. In my estimation the Pro-Life community has won the battle on surgical abortions as there are less and less doctors who are willing to dismember a baby inside or partially outside the womb. There are few left and fewer entering the ranks to provide abortions for a living. Even with the mainstream media’s attempt to turn Dr. Tiller into a hero of “women’s rights” new medical professionals just aren’t signing up to spend the rest of their lives killing in utero babies with their hands and wonder if the next Scott Roder is waiting to say hello outside their “office”.

But just because the momentum would suggest the Pro-Life community has won the battle doesn’t mean the war is over. The new generation of abortion providers aren’t going to touch the fetus, after all that is so 1980ish, the new medical professional will just have to prescribe a pill that does the dirty work of abortion for them. Yes, deadly little pills that can just show up in the mail and can go home with the patient. How quaint and private no more getting those medical hands dirty tearing apart the fetus or injecting the woman’s belly with a big ole needle.

Lets go protest the drug maker you say, the only problem is I don’t think the Chinese government is going to let you. You see the manufacture of mifepristone, a synthetic steroid sold under the brand name Mifeprex that is used as an abortifacient in the first two months of pregnancy, is produced in China. With all the poorly made products hitting the US from China the FDA has said their okay with the setup. Mifepristone’s American distributor, Danco Laboratories, LLC, supposedly resides in an undisclosed location in New York City. Sure an undisclosed location can be discovered and I even found an address here on the Internet (Danco Laboratories Address?) but its not like New York City is exactly the hot bed of Pro-Life activities. In addition I would surmise the employees of Danco (all two of them it appears) probably work from home and drop-ship the pills from China right to the doctor’s office.

Yes the battle against surgical abortions appears to have been won but once abortion goes underground again with pills will there be any good way to fight it? Just when the American public was turning the corner to be decidedly against abortion the killing of a baby is now as easy as taking a pill. What on earth has the human race come to, we are so fallen.

Obviously the situation needs much pray put forth to change the hearts and minds of the next generation. We cannot to despair as we have true hope in our savior Jesus Christ, who allows us to receive him body, blood, soul and divinity everyday of our lives if we choose too, all we have to do is Get To Mass.

Lack of Posting

Finding it more difficult to post these days although Twittering more and more as its not as difficult to come up with 140 characters. For some reason my post scheduled for 6/30 did not post when it was suppose to.
