Conceived By Man

Much of the conversation around same-sex marriages and whether they should be allowed or not have centered around the inability for same-sex couple to have children. This, we are told by some, is the reason for marriage. While I’ve shown previously that this logic is flawed, it is also not a viable excuse for limiting this right to same-sex couples as before as detailed in this new study.

Supreme Ballot Access

Recently the US Supreme Court ruled against the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma in their Ballot Access suit. The court overturned a unanimous 10th Circuit Court of Appeals finding in favor of the Libertarian Party. The court ruled that the state of Oklahoma does not have to allow members of other parties to vote in its primary.

The Slippery Slope of Death

People who tried to keep Terri Schiavo alive argued at times about a possible “slippery slope” that we could end up following if we allowed her feeding tube to be pulled while there was a controversy over what she wanted to have happen in the situation. And, while I disagreed with their view and believed that legally the proper channels were taken, it appears that they may have been right in the case of Mae Magourik.

Marriage: How Both Sides Have It Wrong

Now that my home state of Indiana has decided to go down the sad path of “shielding the sanctity of marriage from activist judges” and opponents of the measure decried it as “singling out gays and lesbians for discrimination” I felt it was time to examine how both sides of the issue are both right and wrong. And unfortunately it doesn’t look like either’s deep felt beliefs will allow them to see the common ground that exists and could result in a compromise that would be both legal and proper.

Crisis Amnesia Syndrome

It’s happening again, political amnesia rampant in the liberal leadership. Recently it was the sudden lack of any desire to deal with Saddam Hussein that displayed this quaint condition to the public. A condition that so many in both parties seem to suffer from when not in power. Now it is the Social Security crisis, the very one that they themselves championed during the same years they were calling for the removal of Hussein, that they are claiming is an imagined one.

The UN Irrelevance Once Again

While Iraq was being debated, many people asserted that the UN had become irrelevant and nothing more than a lawyer filled debating club.  This was defended by many who believed that the UN was capable of filling the role needed by a world organization that could help resolve disputes and prevent war.  Unfortunately, I am ever increasing of the mind that they are wrong, evidenced by such things as the Oil for Food scandal and refusal to put any teeth behind their resolutions.  And their latest blunder, their unwillingness to label the death, rape and torture of thousands of people because they are not Arab as a genocide just reinforces that belief.

Right Actions, Wrong Reasons

Recently, Colin Powell intimated that one of the possible benefits of the tsunami relief efforts was that it would change the hearts of those in the world that look unfavorably on America and American values.  There is a belief that our outpouring of generosity will put an end to terrorism around the world once and for all.

The Case for Invading Iraq

When President Bush made his case for the invasion of Iraq, he unfortunately did so with little regard on making the full case. This is one problem I have with his administration, not that he couldn’t have, but that he didn’t. His advisors, his intelligence, the intelligence of our friends and years of knowledge about what was going on in Iraq led him to believe that the case was a “Slam Dunk” as has been often repeated.

Kerry today blamed President Bush for allowing the lunar eclipse to occur last night.  After spending the first fifteen minutes of his speech in Boston today celebrating the Red Sox win in the World Series, Senator Kerry launched into an attack on President Bush for failing to do anything about the terror created by the lunar eclipse.

Fear Factor

The presidential election is upon us now and appropriately enough it will be within days of Halloween.  That’s because the major parties are using fear to drive people to the polls, towards their candidate and away from their opponents.  Perhaps we should have Joe Rogan doing a special ‘Fear Factor, Election Night’ show for us next Tuesday night?
