Archive for the ‘friends’ Category

I was sent an e-mail that a friend of mine, Jack Lewis, sent to Stop the ACLU. He is a wiz with computer codes and the such, so I am going to use this instead of my own. lol. Enjoy.

Recently, the ACLU set their doomsday clock at six minutes before midnight! Once it reaches the ‘dark hour’ of midnight…we will be slaves to the ominous and evil ‘surveillance society’. This isn’t science fiction. This is typical scare tactics from the ACLU.

They prey upon the paranoid. This is how they get donations to fund their machine. They cry about “American citizens being spied upon” when in fact there is no evidence that anyone has been hurt by the government’s terrorist surviellance program.

While the ACLU cry that they are the guardian’s of liberty, and that privacy is one of those liberties….they have been exposed as being violators of that very liberty. They have a massive database of their own member’s private financial information they use for soliciting donations.

The group’s new data collection practices were implemented without the board’s approval or knowledge and were in violation of the ACLU’s privacy policy at the time, according to Michael Meyers, vice president of the organization and a frequent internal critic. He said he had learned about the new research by accident Nov. 7 during a meeting of the committee that is organizing the group’s Biennial Conference in July.

He objected to the practices, and the next day, the privacy policy on the group’s Web site was changed. “They took out all the language that would show that they were violating their own policy,” Meyers said. “In doing so, they sanctified their procedure while still keeping it secret.”

Now the ACLU are proudly defending Rep. Larry Craig on grounds of privacy. In another recent case they are defending a “pre-operative transsexual” anatomically male’s “right” to use the female public restroom. Terrence Jeffrey calls out the ‘privacy hypocrisy’ on this one.

“The government does not have a constitutionally sufficient justification for making private sex a crime,” said the ACLU. “It follows that an invitation to have private sex is constitutionally protected and may not be made a crime. This is so even where the proposition occurs in a public place, whether in a bar or a restroom.”

But then the ACLU went a step further, arguing that there is not only a right to solicit sex, but also to engage in it, in a public restroom.

“The Minnesota Supreme Court,” said the ACLU, “has already ruled that two men engaged in sexual activity in a department store restroom with the stall door closed had a reasonable expectation of privacy. They were, the Court held, therefore acting in a private, not a public place.”

The conflated logic of the ACLU’s bathroom briefs seems to be that someone entering a public restroom intending to use it for traditional purposes has no protection either from the gender sign posted at the door or from the otherwise vaunted right to privacy. Someone entering a public restroom intending to solicit and engage in sex, on the other hand, is protected by both the First Amendment and the right to privacy.

What else would you expect from a group that embraces an ideology that holds that partially born babies have no right to keep their skulls intact?

Indeed. As my good friend Glib Fortuna puts it:

This about sums up the ACLU’s worldview. To the ACLU, the only “freedom” the ACLU truly believes in is “sexual freedom” and the concomitant “right” of people who choose aberrant sexual behavior to be free of any criticism and free from anyone else exercising common sense (and more threateningly, religious liberty) if it “infringes” on these “rights” recently invented by the ACLU and its partisans.

This was a production of Stop The ACLU Blogburst. If you would like to join us, please email Jay at Jay@stoptheaclu.com or Gribbit at GribbitR@gmail.com. You will be added to our mailing list and blogroll. Over 200 blogs already onboard.

It’s me now. They do a very good job over at Stop the ACLU. You can find out what court cases are pending, when they are coming to a neighborhood near you, what silly little things they’re defending now and what horrific people, such as terrorists, they are trying to give more civil rights than they wish you to have.

I would just like to add one thing. THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT GIVE US OUR RIGHTS. GOD DID. For if the government had indeed given us our rights, then they surely could take them away, no?

Have a beautiful day. 😉

I would like to use this post to help more people become aware of the great work they are doing over at Stop the ACLU. If you are not yet a member of Linkfest, it is easy to become a member. Would you like to meet other conservatives? We even a rather friendly liberal who is brave enough to sign up! Kudo’s! We are tired of our posts being buried over at digg and other liberal social stations. Talk about open mindedness? HA! Increase your reading over here at Linkfest. Also, please don’t forget the rules of no porn and to be kind to one another. Thank you.

Friends are more precious than gold

I do not have a Hemmingway nor a Faulkner pressing my mind at the moment for you, because I am overcome with a feeling that is very foreign to me. It is overwhelming. It is raw. It is good. The feeling for which I am referring is Friendship.

I have written my old blog for over 3 years, and I have made a few friends over there. Some very thoughtful and longlasting friends. I will not be listing names because I know I will inadvertantly forget one person or two, and I am not in the business of hurting anyone. Well, maybe OBL, but that’s a different subject!

Whenever I am struggling with a problem, no matter how silly, they are always there to guide me through. They make me laugh a lot, they share with me themselves, they are the most fantastic human beings I know.

God has surely blessed me. I just hope I remain worthy of this of blessing. (I know in God’s eyes I am a sinner, nothing but rags on my best day. Thanks to my LORD Jesus Christ, I am made white as snow. Thank you, Jesus.) Have a nice day everyone, and God bless you all.

I am going to share this with my friends at Linkfest through an open trackback. Maybe this is something you will want to try now. After all, I never would have met some of these remarkable people without being open.

    I’ve been through many things in my life, and I’ve come out of each of them scathed but alive. This thing? I still do not have the words. Nothing compares. My apologies.

    I have found some people who have written beautifully about people they did not even know. Maybe they speak for me?

    First we have one from 123beta called, “Never Forget.” It is beautifully written and well researched. Very great job. Then there is an article from Blue Star Chronicles called “More Thoughts on 9/11. This is a well thought and researched article. I can only imagine the difficulty as they went deeper into this person’s life.

    The one that touched me the most, however, was written by DeMediacratic Nation. It is called, “2996 Jill Marie Maurer Campbell: A 9/11 Tribute. Maybe it’s because of Jill, or maybe it’s because of the research. Somehow, I was very touched.

    Last year (or was it the year before?) there was an opportunity for bloggers to receive a name and to do a story about that person’s life. I was misled into believe it was spam. I regret that now, but I don’t know if I could have handled it, to be honest. Thank you to everyone who stepped-up to the plate and did your (and my) part in remembering these beautiful people.

    Lest we forget…

    On this day, let us remember also all of those who are in harms way to protect us here at home. Whether they are first responders or Rangers in the Marines, I want to send a great big THANK YOU to you. You are not forgotten, no matter what you may read or hear. For every piece of trash that is out there, you can be sure that there is at least 100-1,000 times more support for you that will never hear about because it does not fit the agenda. But don’t you ever think that this support doesn’t exist. Just ask Morgan, my Hero. 🙂

    No day of remembrance would be complete without the inclusion of Blackfive’s site. One of the authors, Mr. Wolf, has written a very good article about another site, Home Of Heroes. This man, Mr. Doug Sterner, is collecting all of the information about the medals EARNED, no matter their rank or service, or even when they served. This is an awesome site that I highly recommend. Even when you are not losing heart!

    This is a heartfelt post about a Polish woman who wanted us to know that we are not alone. God bless this woman’s heart! (Written by Blackfive.)

    Blackfive has posted an article about a man who KNEW he was going to die, but he went back into the inferno to save those who were still inside. This is the kind of man he has always been. Now we are trying to get President Bush to honor him with the Medal of Honor. Please sign this petition for Rick Rescorla. You may read Blackfive’s ‘Someone You Should Know’ here.

    There is so much more at Blackfive’s site. Please visit his site today and often.

    There is also a site I would like to include. This would be Mudville Gazette. This is a fine site that is run sometimes by Greyhawk’s wife when he is called to serve. He is a true man. He answers the call. He also has a fine post about Rick. He has some more and different information that may interest you. Please check it out.

    I’d like to write more, but I can no longer see the screen…have a nice day.

    On this day, 9/11/2007, I choose this post for my open trackback. What better post than one which is devoted to both on that horrific day and for our Troops who are yet in harms way?
