A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

How the President lies...

Obama Uses Semantics To Avoid Abortion Issue

By Susan Brinkmann, For
The Bulletin

A pro-life Congressman is claiming that President Barack Obama told him in a phone conversation that when he addressed Congress on Sept. 9 and said “under our plan no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions” he was not talking about any of the bills currently pending on the Hill, but his own plan – which only exists theoretically.

Rep. Bart Stupak, D., Mich., told that he confronted the president about this statement in a phone conversation, saying that abortion funding was indeed provided in all of the bills on the Hill. The President corrected him saying that when he addressed Congress, he said, “Under my plan” abortion funding would not be provided.

At this point, Rep. Stupak said, “With all due respect sir, you do not have a plan. The only plan we have out is the House plan’.”

The president offered no reply, saying only, “Go back and work with the people on your committee and get this matter worked out. Work with the Speaker. Work with us, would you?”

“So, I don’t know if it is a game of semantics or what,” Rep. Stupak concluded.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, believes a game of semantics is exactly what the president is playing.

“Every time the President has spoken of not wanting to fund abortion in ‘his’ health care plan, no one has really known what measure he was talking about,” said Fr. Pavone. “Now, we know from his conversation with Congressman Stupak that the President’s ‘plan’ has never seen the light of day. Or, maybe, to paraphrase former President Bill Clinton, it depends on what the word ‘plan’ means.”

These semantic games were contemptible when Clinton used them to cover up games with an idiot young enough to be his daughter (Note: I felt he SHOULD NOT have faced impeachment, but thats material for another post). For the present occupant of the Oval Office to engage in them on an issue of this importance goes beyond that. It places him on the level of pond scum.
