War funding is the big issue in Washington. The Democrat Party is in full retreat. Not politically, no they are launching their biggest assault yet against the big enemy of all left thinking Americans (George Bush). Militarily, they are in full retreat. The latest compromise between Democrats (Republicans need not participate) is an flabbergasting abdication of leadership. is now in charge of the Congress. General Petraeus' plan has not even been fully implemented, yet the Congress is ready to undercut the expert they demanded and approved without one negative vote. This is no way to win a baseball game, let alone a war. You demand a new manager and 10 games in you decide to give up and trade away every starter. We would wonder about that owner or GM's sanity. Yet the left has us believe Bush is the problem.,2933,267802,00.html

The so called war funding bill would cut off funding by April of next year except for training and fighting Al qeada if certain benchmarks are not met. Sounds good. If those Iraqi's don't get their act together, we are out of there. We are tired of spending our blood and treasury when they won't even try to sit down and work it out. How can we referee a civil war?

I will state something unpopular. The surge is working. The Democrats and so hate President Bush that they are unable to see any progress. One bad day and they pounce on it to leave. I imagine that is why Winston Churchill was so despised by the liberals of Great Britain. Like Bush he called upon our rugged determination. Churchill said, I can promise you nothing but blood, sweat, and tears. Bush said, we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail. The Democrat mantra is no sacrifice is worth it and no victory is attainable. All is lost so why try?

I have heard that so many times. Doctors told us that my father was likely dead by morning. We prayed all night and he lived another 17 1/2 years. I am told that I have to jetison my deeply held beliefs on abortion and American security to be successful politically, I say why not just lose my soul--there no success if you don't accomplish something. I heard that I could not make the military at 33. I was told we would never get any pro-family legislation in Delaware; it happened. Excuse me for not accepting the defeatism of Ried and Pelosi. I hate defeatism. American can not afford the misleadership of the Democrats at this time. We are in a fight for civilization. The Europeans are failing and the Democrats are joining them.

Terrorists believe we are corrupt and decadent, and that with a few hard blows they can force us to retreat. They are mistaken," Bush remarked in a recent interview. Well if we don't, it will be because of his leadership. Just like Lincoln and FDR before Him, he is attempting to rally America to win a very winnable war.

We have made some grave errors under Sec. Rumsfeld. We did not restore our Armed Forces to a level sufficient to be the superpower. During a surge of interest after 9/11, Rummy insisted on a low military levels. He rejected calls to increase our military to fulfill the two front war. He thought technology could replace numbers. Sounds like a plant manager not a Sec. Def. We did not have enough troops to secure the peace. These and other errors have given the opposition ammunition to paint a fine war effort as a fiasco. Sen. John McCain is right. There is hope. Victory is not a dream; it is an objective we have to work to obtain. Unfortunately, it will take many more tears and American blood. We are indeed tiring, but we will not falter. We will dig deep and show we what makes Americans special. We have always risen to the call of history.

The problem is that the Democrat leaders are predisposed to accept American failure. Lincoln heard the same voices. He determined to win before the next election. President Bush must do the same because the next President will not be able to.

Gruesome Partial Birth Abortion Procedure is officially a crime.

We have taken a baby step back from our national insanity. The next step should be an effort to end all late term abortions.

In this afternoon's Wall Street Journal Electronic Report the following appeared:
THE AFTERNOON REPORT (IN FULL)An Abortion MilepostBy TIM ANNETTHanding a major victory to abortion opponents, a divided Supreme Court ruledthat a nationwide ban on so-called partial-birth abortions doesn't violate the constitutional rights of women.Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the court's majority opinion that opponents of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 "have not demonstrated that the Act would be unconstitutional in a large fraction of relevant cases." The 5-4 ruling broke neatly along the court's ideological faultlines, as President Bush's two appointees, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, joined Justices Kennedy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. The ruling was the first time thatthe high court had upheld a ban on a specific abortion procedure. Other abortionbattles before the Supreme Court, including the landmark Roe v. Wade case, havecentered on the question of whether, not how, a woman should have the right to terminate a pregnancy. Three federal appeals courts struck down the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, finding that it violated a 5-4 Supreme Court opinion in 2000 that invalidated a similar Nebraska law because it made no exception to preserve a woman's health. The ban was signed by President Bush after two previous bills passed by a Republican-controlled Congress were vetoed by President Clinton.Government lawyers had argued that the federal ban had avoided the flaws of the Nebraska law by officially finding that the procedure, which involves removing the fetus intact, was never medically necessary and by defining the procedure itself in a precise fashion. Solicitor General Paul Clement maintained that the2003 law renders a clear distinction between legal abortions, where the fetal demise is induced in the uterus, and those where the procedure takes place "when the living fetus is over halfway outside of the womb." He argued that since safer alternatives were in place, the ban wouldn't deter abortion, merely end what opponents call a grisly practice. But advocates say the procedure is sometimes the safest for a woman seeking to end a pregnancy and that upholding the ban would effectively threaten most abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy.Of the more than one million abortions that are performed in the U.S. each year,more than nine in 10 take place in the first 12 weeks.Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing in dissent, called the decision "alarming"and said that it "refuses to take ... seriously" previous Supreme Court decisions on the abortion issue. She wrote that the decision "tolerates, indeed applauds, federal intervention to ban nationwide a procedure found necessary and proper in certain cases by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists." Before the ruling, proponents on both sides of the issue appeared to agree that even though the procedure accounts for only a small proportion of abortions, it may lead to broader curbs. But voters have recently rebuffed other measures to limit abortion. Arguments in the case last November took place just days after voters in three states rejected ballot measures to restrict abortions. Voters in California and Oregon rejected measures requiring parental notification before pregnant minors could obtain abortions, while South Dakotans repealed a law that banned all abortions except when the woman's life is in jeopardy.

Jackie Roosevelt Robinson--a real sports hero.

60 years ago Baseball season opened a new season in life of minorities in America. A military veteran named Jackie R. Robinson was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers. He became the first Black man (African American in today's parlance) to play in the Major leagues. He broke down the apartide of professional sports. Mr. Robinson was someone who refused to sit in the back of a Texas bus when he was a warrior for this country in 1944 and he refused to take a back seat to those who persecuted him in 1947.

For just doing his job he was ridiculed, spiked purposefully, hit with baseballs, and had beer bottles thrown at him. He was cursed and threatened. Yet he did his job anyway. He represented us well just like Jesse Owens in the 1933 Olympics. He made America's past time open for all Americans at the professional level. He drove a spike in the icy heart of the doctrine of separate but equal--No more separate leagues--just a merit based system of excellence.

His self control and professionalism inspired a nation whether those looking on were black and white. His character made him a hero. His athletic abilities made him a star. He proved the former mattered more.

The Unspoken Threat to Human Dignity is Cloning combined with Genetic engineering.

The greatest threat to human dignity since slavery is designer people. People who are patentable property. There was a ruling which allows Human DNA alterations to be patentable. We could see in the near future humans being altered to produce multiple organs and then killed before it reaches term. This is allowed in SB 5. We heard testimony during the SB 5 debate that we are on the verge of combining human and rat DNA. That is considered an advance! Forbid it, Almighty God! We are experimenting with humans and mice, humans and pigs, and whatever else comes to the fertile mind of our Brave New World purveyors. This must be stopped.

We are opening the door to diseases currently unknown. Just as disturbing, we are inviting the dehumanizing of innocent people. We already see unprovoked attacks on the homeless. What would we think amount rat and pig modified people? Would we understand that these people are victims of our insanity and should not be vilified? Would we attempt to deprive these people of legal personhood and constitutional rights? If we do so, we would also dehumanize ourselves.

I am not against gene therapy or cloning organs. I am not against ethical stem cell research (which is the only type which currently works). I am staunchly opposed to turning the keys of the very code of humanity to those who care only about today's dollar and nothing about tomorrow's posterity.I am disgusted that no ones seems to be listening to the testimony. Too few care about protecting human dignity. Senators Charlie Copland, John Still, and Colin Bonini on the Republican side get it. Senators McBride and Bunting on the Democrat side get it. Unfortunately, we need to educate some of the fine people who don't. I think they just don't understand the future they are voting to create.

I am not surprised at the state senate vote in support of so called therapeutic cloning. Just dismayed at the dullness of attention by some of our leaders so let me us a sledgehammer.How can you consider apologizing for slavery discontinued a hundred and forty years ago (which is good) and open the door to the slavery of the 21st century with another vote. Don't you have one bit of the common sense God gave you left?

What do you think will eventually happen if you institutionalize into the law the debasement of humanity? Allowing these cloning techniques would allow these hapless embryos to be created and developed here and then shipped elsewhere to be implanted or incubated. Have you not read the bill you support? You good folks are being sold a bill of goods with no goods in the shipping box.

What is the answer? Support House bill 76. It is a bipartisan bill which guards the freedom and dignity of the human spirit. It does not affect stem cell research. It does prevent three major problems. It prohibits human cloning. It prohibits human/non-human hybrids. It prohibits the sale, donation, or transfer of a cloned human embryo, human/animal chimeric embryo or a human/human chimeric embryo.

Let me ask you. Which version of the future do you support? If you support my view that safe guarding the freedom and dignity of the human spirit must be the top priority of society, then don't shake your head and say what is the world coming too.

Stand up and be counted. Here are the sponsors of House bill 76--the cloning ban: Prime sponsors are Rep. Miro & Sen. McBride & Sen. Copeland ; Co sponsors are Reps. Spence, Lee, Atkins, Blakey, Booth, Carey, Ewing, Hocker, Lavelle, Lofink, Outten, Short, Thornburg, Brady; Sens. Bunting, Bonini, Cloutier, Simpson, Still. Is your senator or representative a sponsor? If not call or email them (go to or call (302) 739-4114 to get contact information). You can even find out who your legislator is through your county department of elections New Castle County: (302) 577-3464Kent County: (302) 739-4498Sussex County: (302) 856-5367.

The future of humanity is in your hands. No excuses are acceptable. Act today. The future will come, but we can shape it.

The Death of American Compassion

Yet another case of a group of teens beating a homeless person is in the news. These people are being targeted just because they seem to be a good target. If they die, who will miss them, and who will care? It is time we stand up and say I care. Every human being has dignity. We did not give it. It came from God. Mankind's body is from the earth, but his spirit is from God. We are created in His image and none of us has the right to an unprovoked disregard of another's rights.

We all have the right to be secure in our persons, property, and papers according to the constitution. Not just those of us who make 6 or 7 figures. A person may have more influence because of wealth, but wealth can not buy you one shred of dignity.

I am sadden by the lack of commendation of these acts and the underground videos which show abuse of the homeless. I for one will condemn them. Let us move toward a society of compassion. I want us to forget about a person's social status and treat people like children of God. I consider it as much of a privilege to invite a homeless person over for dinner as having dinner with Senator x. That is what the scripture tells me to do.,4670,PreyingontheHomeless,00.html
