About Me

My photo
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.

Justifying a vote for Obama with pure moonshine.

One of the arguments raised for supporting Obama is that he'll address poverty experienced by pregnant mothers who feel they can't afford a child. Supposedly this will be more effective in the long run in reducing abortions and we can just forget that troubling little detail of his wholehearted support for abortion at all stages, up to and including birth after a botched procedure.

That one sounds like pure bullshit to me, of the several women I've met who have had an abortion none did it for economic reasons. Most times it was an unwanted pregnancy brought on by faulty birth control, one woman I briefly met figured abortion WAS a form of birth control. She admitted to having had five abortions. Not exactly my pick for Mother of The Year.

With the exception of that particular individual, every one of the others regretted it tremendously. As I've mentioned in other posts, these women were speaking at AA meetings, telling everyone what had helped fuel their alcoholism, how they decided to get the monkey off their back and how they were keeping it off at that time. It's under the heading of "what it was like, what happened and what it's like now."

Never was mention made of economic hardship, just that the kid was unwanted and their decision at the time was to shitcan the tyke. Had they been counseled otherwise I believe theres a strong chance the ultimate decision would have been different.

On the flip side of that, I know of one woman closely related to me (my daughter) who has used her pregnancies to gain additional welfare benefits. So much for it being pure myth that a woman would get pregnant purely for that sort of monetary gain. It happens, at least three times that I know of.

So what's the point here? Not much, just that I believe what Tip O'Neill used to say about all politics being local. When a Catholic makes a claim like the Obama supporters have, I try fitting it into my own frame of reference. If it doesn't fit I throw the bullshit flag.

Like I've already done.

Don't forget the "incest and rape" argument. It happens, but it's much more rare than abortions as birth control. I'd like to see the providers at least admit to that.

YOu have a way with words which allows for no mistaking your intent. I love it.

Harry, yeah the "incest & rape" argument routinely gets flogged to death in support of abortion. According to the statistics I've seen these instances account for less than 1% of all abortions. That doesn't even address the idea of two wrongs making a right. But don't expect anything like that from the proaborts.

Matthew, thanks. 22 years in Uncle Sam's Canoe Club does that to ya.
