The Chicago Tribune is Prophetic

I was directed to this cartoon from a Tweet this afternoon.  It was posted by Conservative Gal and depicts a 1934 cartoon that appeared in the Chicago Tribune. 

This cartoon could have appeared in the Chicago Tribune today.  Seems that we are repeating history…again.  Hopefully we won’t need a World War and phony-baloney government programs to bail us out.  Wait, we already have the phony-baloney government programs…..

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Keith Olbermann is a Lunatic

I just love Steven Crowder.  I actually think he was too nice when doing a parody of Keith Olbermann.  He’s much nastier and vindictive than what was portrayed. 

Defeat John Murtha

StaffI received a Tweet this morning from Tim Burns, the individual that is hoping to take the House seat from Rep. John Murtha, democrat from Pennsylvania.  I have heard this gentleman speak on several programs and he seems like a genuine guy.  I don’t live in his district, but he would have my vote mainly because he is not John Murtha.

We have witnessed several good reasons to defeat this long time Representative.  The narrative just sort of writes itself, but I’m not sure the voters of Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional district are listening.  Rep. Murtha has brought home so much pork over the years, Mr. Burns has a long road ahead of him, but I do wish him luck.  Not because he is running as a Republican, but because we need to oust these kind of dinosaurs (Rep. Murtha) from public office. 

It is beyond my comprehension that the voters actually keep electing this guy, from reasons like calling his constituents racists,

 

to not answering questions from reporters,

 

to calls of outright corruption.

 

Hey all you voters in Johnstown, PA …what are you all thinking?  Are you guys on the gravy train also?  What fundamental problem do you have in electing this colossal boob every two years?  Maybe it’s too much for the uninformed voter to actually do diligent research.  New guys on the scene taking on a seasoned and entrenched incumbent usually have a difficult time making a case.  Hopefully the next election will be different.

I guess I can’t say much, we in Illinois have elected such great individuals as former Governor Rod Blagojevich, Senator Richard Durbin and once Senator Barak Obama.  Maybe common sense would prevail in Illinois if we separated Chicago from the mix (sorry, my down state bias coming out).

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Get Your Pelosi Car Today!

This is too prophetic.  This video was done about a year ago but it seems to have more meaning today.  Scary.

So Long George Tiller

georgetillerEvidently someone took out their rage on infamous abortion doctor George Tiller and shot and killed him Sunday morning at his church.  (Dr. Tiller went to church? Really?)

Now, I’m a Pro-Life from conception kind of guy.  We can argue back and forth whether life begins at conception, but in my book, the Partial-Birth Abortion procedure is extremely heinous.  This procedure consists of delivering the baby, all but the head, jamming a sharp object into the skull of the infant and sucking out the brains.  Pretty gruesome in my book and very unnecessary.  Take out the “health of the mother” cases, which I have my doubts there are many of those that require this procedure, but I’m sure someone will “enlighten” me on the subject.

From the news accounts I have read there were only two doctors that performed this type of procedure in the United States.  I guess that is somewhat comforting.  NPR actually presented a pretty good overview of this procedure.

The gentleman that has been picked up for this crime sounds a little unstable.  Anyone that promotes the killing of an abortion doctor has to be a little unstable.  The Pro-Life position would be inconsistent if it promoted such behavior.  Every major Pro-Life group has denounced this action as the always do when this type of thing occurs, but there are always a couple of kooks out there that get the ear of the news media.  Funny though, I don’t see the same interest in the babies that Mr. Tiller has killed over the years, but what do I know? 

Attention: this video depicts drawings of the Partial Birth Abortion procedure.

We live in a society that puts very little on the price of a human life but we’ll go to the ends of the earth to prosecute anyone that hurts an animal.  I’m not condoning cruelty to animals, but how much coverage did Michael Vick get for beating and killing dogs?  More than the case deserved in my book. 

I’m sure Dr. Tiller is now finding out if God agrees with his life’s work.  How will God react?  I’m not a prophet so I have no idea, but I can’t wait to ask the Almighty One someday.  Maybe it went something like this:

Dr. Tiller:   Hello St. Peter, I’m Dr. George Tiller.  Can I enter the Pearly Gates?

St. Peter:  Well Dr. Tiller, as Dr. Evil would say, “How about Nooo”.

Of course, that is just my opinion.
