    Conservatives Must Step Up to the Plate Jerry McConnell I just read a blog, written by Eric Florack of, in which he details a lot of the mixed feelings on the Republican Party that surfaced at the CPAC conference held last weekend.

    Pro-lifers are claiming that the EU is putting pressure on countries to abandon their pro-life laws and to comply with a pro-abortion agenda. Biblical Family Advocates said it learned recently that the EU is putting pressure on countries to abandon their pro life laws. The group cites the article, “EU Threatens to Withdraw Aid to Nicaragua if Pro-Life Law Remains,” to claim that the EU is putting pressure on a country that receives aid from it. “I was also amazed recently that the country of Malta, an EU member country, was feeling pressure from the EU and the UN to...

  • We Must Fight the Evil Indians

    We Must Fight the Evil Indians I have learned from our champion that we must fight the evil Indians. The evil Indians are the fount of all evil in the world. The evil Indians, our champion tells us, must share their wealth with us. They are rich and we are poor. We need their revenues to survive. They must give us a cut of their ill-gotten gain. It is only fair, says our champion. And we are so, poor, the evil Indians so rich. Our champion does not play that game. So, I have learned well that this one issue...
  • Philly Billboard: "Saddam, Give Peace A Chance, Go Into Exile"

    On northbound I-95 in Philadelphia, somewhere between the Broad Street and the Betsy Ross Bridge exits, there is this billboard. The background is mostly a medium blue color. The left side is a picture of Hussein and in the top right is a white dove symbol. Three lines of yellow/gold text, "Saddam - Give Peace a chance - Go into exil". Nothing on it to show who sponsored it, though I believe it was a "Clear Channel" billboard. It being a "Clear Channel" billboard will have the tinfoil hat left wingnuts convinced that Rush Limbaugh is behind it.
