It’s a Friday calf blog day, so I won’t take up too much of your time with other stuff, but I would be remiss if I didn’t at least point out a standard view from the left.
“Do not judge [unless it’s judging America, or Christians, or Conservatives], because all is equivalent”
I’m a judger, and I wouldn’t say it’s my best feature. So I work to not be that way. However – if you’re going to run for president, people have to vote on you based on their judgement. They look at how you judge things and go from there.
Let’s just take a moment:
The Russian invasion of Georgia is similar to the US in Iraq. Here’s Obama.
“We’ve got to send a clear message to Russia and unify our allies,” Obama told a crowd of supporters in Virginia. “They can’t charge into other countries. Of course it helps if we are leading by example on that point.”
Here’s an excellent partial comment:
Despite Russian claims, no parallels exist between U.S. Iraq involvement and Russian Georgian aggression. With that and other pretexts Putin unilaterally attacked into Georgia, after NATO membership rejection portended a flaccid response. In contrast the United States, heading a U. N. coalition exceeding that Churchill and Roosevelt assembled to confront Hitler’s Germany, toppled Hussein’s regime, forcing the U.N. to confront the reason for its’ existence.
:”Everybody’s watching what’s going on in Beijing right now with the Olympics. Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now, which means if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you’re starting to think, ‘Beijing looks like a pretty good option.’”
[Let’s not look much closer or we may have to make judgments.]
I suppose all that Chinese “infrastructure” that always seems to crumble during a 6.0 earthquake was built by union waged engineers and workers. Right? I suppose, the people decided that having all this was important and voted in the proper representatives to get this stuff done too. Right?
Abortion – when the doctor screws it up and you’re left with a live baby……
“to burden the original decision….”
That’s right – don’t judge the leaving of children in a broom closet to die alone because they were supposed to be aborted.
After you’re born I believe the constitution says you have a right to be living. And I believe most statutes will agree that children are allowed to be a burden to the state if the parents don’t want them.
