From the page: "âoeExercises, from the Senior Scout Manual, include: how to work through how the Girl Scout Promise and Law relate to life. One example given is: âSupporting a decision to pull life-support system from a dying relativeâ and âending a pregnancyâ. Some suggested exercises to address contemporary issues include: organizing an event to make people aware of gender bias or helping to organize an Earth Day celebration.
Various Girl Scout councils have had or do have a âoecozy relationshipâ with Planned Parenthood. According to Concerned Women of America, one Girl Scout leadership manual âoegives visits to health clinics like Planned Parenthood as an acceptable option for Brownie troops. Remember Brownies are 6-8 years old. A council in Waco Texas sponsored annual half-day sex-ed programs including: sympathetic treatment of abortion, masturbation and homosexuality."
He has to be stopped. He's far more than merely another bad liberal politician.
From the page: "Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history. Senator Obama says âoewords matter.â But when it comes to your Second Amendment rights, he refuses to speak honestly about where he stands. In fact, Obama hides behind carefully chosen words and vague statements of support for sportsmen and gun rights to sidestep and camouflage the truth.
But even he canât hide from the truth forever âŠ his voting record, political associations, and long standing positions make it clear that, if elected, Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history."
From the page: "The National Rifle Association has released four ads against Barack Obama and Joe Biden."
From the page: "Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today's leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt's response to a financial crisis.
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened,'" Barack Obama's running mate recently told the CBS Evening News.
Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn't introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World's Fair."
From the page: ""I live here on less than a dollar a month," he said. "
While it seems funny (those last two questions), you would be amazed at how often the caller, out of habit, blurts out this information. Those are essentially the same instructions we utilized at duty desks in the military for years. The caller is amped up, their brain isn't at its best (obviously) and their judgment fails them. Doesn't always work, but when it does, it's a biggie.
I encourage all of you, believers or not, to read this Christian brother's wonderful testimony. It reminded me so much of my own life and journey back towards truth after years of wandering and trying to ignore Jesus Christ in my life.
From the page: "Once "hope" and "change" had to be defined as more than a podium sign, and Obama had to speak on occasion without a teleprompter, avoiding the joint town hall meetings he promised John McCain, it became apparent that it was not change for the better Obama was offering.
He offered trillions in new taxes and surrender to our enemies abroad. He was a classic liberal, the No. 1 liberal in the U.S. Senate, and that's a losing argument."
Chuck is one of the greats; he's been doing it for a long, long time, too.
From the page: "The Democrats opposed the troop surge in Iraq. When the surge turned a raging insurgency into a slinking retreat and the Democrats ridiculously proclaimed that it wasn't working, an average American listening to both sides could only shrug his shoulders and wonder what in the world the Democrats were smoking.
When Democrats opposed every measure to increase domestic oil production, they angered millions of Americans. And when they finally tried to claim they were for new drilling by producing two bills that allowed new drilling only where there was little or no oil, Americans quickly picked up on the scam."
From the page: "Nato defence ministers are today considering the creation of a rapid-response military force to respond to Russian aggression. "
From the page: "New Hampshire Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes voted along with the rest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's poodle army for what they claim is a comprehensive energy bill that responsibly expands domestic drilling off our coasts. In the Atlantic and Pacific, the bill allows drilling from 100 to 200 miles offshore. It allows drilling from 50 to 100 miles offshore with state approval. The eastern Gulf of Mexico would remain off limits.
Under the bill, all land within 50 miles of shore would remain off limits. Oh, by the way, the Interior Department says that 88 percent of all offshore oil currently blocked by the federal drilling ban is located within 50 miles of shore.
This bill is a total fraud. It gives us access to only 12 percent of the estimated oil reserves we are currently not allowed to access. If Congress takes no action in the next two weeks, guess how much of that oil we could tap? One hundred percent. "
