You're Just about Done as a Society When.....

...the State knows better than the parents.
Here

Mr Justice Hedley heard an emergency application from doctors treating her that she had developed an aggressive chest infection and was unlikely to survive any moves to keep her alive.
"Medical evidence speaks with one voice, that ventilation simply will not achieve the end for which no doubt the parents would wish," he said.

Medical evidence never speaks with one voice, that's why we have second opinions. Anyone who has ever had a parent, child or friend in physical trauma knows this to be true. Even if the doctors are correct, do we really want to turn over the rights of the parents who gave the child life and are charged with her well-being to doctors who are simply charged with maintaining health?

Here is an interesting contrast.

Makes you wonder if doctors are becoming political.

Jimmy Carter - Shut the Fuck Up Already

The Washington Post, forever in short supply of Op-Ed reporters unleashes Jimmy Carter again to scold, lecture and otherwise berate the intellect of the rest of us.

Unfortunately, these steps are already underway and are well known throughout the Palestinian territories and the world. Israel moved yesterday to withhold funds (about $50 million per month) that the Palestinians earn from customs and tax revenue. Perhaps a greater aggravation by the Israelis is their decision to hinder movement of elected Hamas Palestinian Legislative Council members through any of more than a hundred Israeli checkpoints around and throughout the Palestinian territories. This will present significant obstacles to a government's functioning effectively. Abbas informed me after the election that the Palestinian Authority was $900 million in debt and that he would be unable to meet payrolls during February. Knowing that Hamas would inherit a bankrupt government, U.S. officials have announced that all funding for the new government will be withheld, including what is needed to pay salaries for schoolteachers, nurses, social workers, police and maintenance personnel. So far they have not agreed to bypass the Hamas-led government and let humanitarian funds be channeled to Palestinians through United Nations agencies responsible for refugees, health and other human services.

This is the gullible and dim-witted former POTUS (we can still hardly believe that) that recently referred to Palestine as thought there were such a place. What Jimmy Carter fails to mention is that these very people are dedicated to killing as many innocent Israelis as possible on their way toward erasing Israel altogether. Can we not even require Hamas to denounce their efforts? Can we not expect the Muslim world to do anything?
And while we're talking about the Muslim world, Carter seems willing to scold the US and Israel for withholding funds, does he have any expectation of funding from Middle Eastern countries? If this money is so vital and necessary for salaries, schools and medical treatment, what did they do for cash when Jimmy's buddy Yasser Arafat was making himself a billionaire? This dunce needs to sit down and shut the fuck up. The Washington Post can help by giving this space to someone else.

Here is another gem.
This common commitment to eviscerate the government of elected Hamas officials by punishing private citizens may accomplish this narrow purpose, but the likely results will be to alienate the already oppressed and innocent Palestinians, to incite violence, and to increase the domestic influence and international esteem of Hamas. It will certainly not be an inducement to Hamas or other militants to moderate their policies.

And just what was the fucking incentive for them to stop when they were given a world stage, invites to the Whitehouse and billions in cash, investment and loans? This statement sounds remarkably like the Mafia. Give them cash or they will become violent, except in the case of Hamas, they will become violent whether you give them cash or not.

Richard Dreyfuss Calls for Bush Impeachment

Richard Dreyfuss, the actor who starred in movies ranging from "Jaws" to "The Goodby Girl," told an audience in Washington, D.C., on Thursday that "there are causes worth fighting for," and one of those is the impeachment of President George W. Bush.

"I'm deeply in love with my country," added Mr. Holland's Orifice. "As a matter of fact, I'm deeply in love with the country that I was taught about in school, the land of the free and the home of the brave."
Of course that must have been before community college which Dreyfuss managed for one year.

In a related story, Sean Mahoney an electrical worker from Urbana, Illinois called for Richard Dreyfuss to resign from the acting profession. "I don't know if I have the experience and knowledge to demand the resignation of Richard Dreyfuss, said Mahoney, but it seems like my duty to express my opinion whether it has value or not."

Sad

Powerline has been all over this sad and sickening story of the moonbat hoards in Minnesota. Ask yourselves if they (Dimocrats) really support the troops.

Propaganda Wars

In a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations, Rumsfeld sounded a theme he frequently raises as a key to eventually winning the global war on terrorism: countering anti-Western messages from Islamic extremists.

"Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age, but for the most part we - our country, our government - has not adapted," he said.

Maybe if you ask nicely, the MSM will give you some keys to their success Don.

More stupidity from CNN

Last weeks excuse
"CNN is not showing the negative caricatures of the likeness of Prophet Mohammed because the network believes its role is to cover the events surrounding the publication of the cartoons while not unnecessarily adding fuel to the controversy itself."

"Prophet Mohammed?" That even sounds a bit familiar, not even the Prophet Mohammed or Mohammed who is thought to be a prophet by Muslims.

How does Webster define the word prophet?
1. One who utters divinely inspired revelations

That’s quite a leap for a news organization. How do we know Mohammed was a prophet? CNN certainly isn’t offering any evidence.
I guess expecting CNN to refer to Jesus Christ as the son of God would be a bit much to ask. Jesus is revered as a prophet by Muslims and some Jews for that matter so you might think that CNN would refer to Jesus as a prophet also.

Lets check…

How about Here?
An Italian judge has dismissed an atheist's petition that a small-town priest should stand trial for asserting that Jesus Christ existed, both sides said on Friday.
No, not there

How about Here?
According to publicity for the book, the 100-Minute Bible "picks out the principle stories of the life and ministry of its central character, Jesus Christ."
No, not there

How about Here?
Was Jesus a preacher? A healer? A teacher? What may he have looked like? And what were the reasons for his death? This original CNN documentary offers factual evidence and current theories about the life of this hugely important religious figure.
No, not there

In fact, CNN goes out of it’s way to say the following:
"The Mystery of Jesus," the latest documentary by CNN Productions, looks at many of the questions and myths around the life of Christ.

These same academics offer factual insights into other important religious people associated with Jesus, such as John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene, whose reputation is often disputed.
You’ll notice it isn’t the Prophet John the Baptist.

David Ignatius - Ignoramious

Howling Moonbats - in this case David Ignatius
The most recent example of politicized intelligence was President Bush's statement on Feb. 9 that the United States had "derailed" a 2002 plot to fly a plane into the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles. Bush spoke about four al Qaeda plotters who had planned to use shoe bombs to blow open the cockpit door. But a foreign official with detailed knowledge of the intelligence scoffed at Bush's account, saying that the information obtained from Khalid Sheik Mohammed and an Indonesian operative known as Hambali was not an operational plan so much as an aspiration to destroy the tallest building on the West Coast. When I asked a former high-level U.S. intelligence official about Bush's comment, he agreed that Bush had overstated the intelligence.

A foreign official with detailed knowledge of the intelligence, really, which one? It is rather insulting to think that the unnamed foreign official is to be believed over the President of the United States, but OK, just for kicks lets give it a try.

A close friend with many years of personal association with David Ignatius, scoffs at his claims of sober heterosexuality."

See how easy that is.

Read it and weep for Washington Post subscribers.

The Lame-Ass MSM

Unwilling to print cartoons of Mohammed for fear of offending whatever it is the Arabs are pissed off at this week, the MSM is rushing to print even more images of inmates at Abu Ghraib.

Never willing to check facts, the press offers up these images of blood-stained prisoners. These are images and they suggest a story but not necessarily the truth. You are suppose to think that the blood is the result of a beating - the press would never suggest otherwise although they did rattle the military's cage over guards using fake blood and calling it menstrual blood.

This time the blood is real and the result of real abuse.
This is not to suggest there aren’t abuses, but it does suggest that the press has motives beyond the printing of a story when it is quite evident that there is much more to the story.

Here is a hint from the same article...

"The program said some prisoners at Abu Ghraib had been killed when U.S. soldiers ran out of rubber bullets as they tried to quell a riot at the jail, and resorted to using live rounds."

They used live rounds on rioting inmates - my God, the horror of it.

Kerry Speaks, Rolls Over, Plays Dead

Concerning the Iranians nuclear bomb building efforts:
"They have watched what's happened in Iraq," Kerry, a member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said of Iran. "What would you do?"

Of course, the nutsack in charge of Iran is responding just like you or I would to a ruthless aggressor.

Kerry acknowledged that losing so narrowly made another run tempting. "If 60,000 votes were different . . . I'd be president," he said. "You have to think about it."

We do think about it. Tomorrow we'll go out and buy 60,000 thank you cards.

There’s more here but its all bullshit.

Cartoons 100% Mohammed FREE!
