There was a lot of pro-life talk from self proclaimed conservatives last week In my mind it was mainly hypocrisy in action.
Today is the second consecutive day that I am dealing with the threats to the First Amendment (hint: it probably won’t be the last). I thought a good place to begin was to quote the entire First Amendment. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for redress of grievances.” Just 44 words but it covers a lot!
State’s Rights. It sounds good and in fact had a noble intent. Over now three centuries of American history it has been used to justify bad.
It’s another one of those days where I want to do a series of quick hits on a variety of topics. Here we go.
This is another instance where I’ll blame all the bad on the former guy. He just isn’t as smart as George W. Bush was – and that’s not exactly in the rare air of wisdom – and refuses to fade away. I used to go to my “various segments” format weekly; lately it seems like I need to do it twice a week.
