Here are some truly blessed people fighting for our constitutional rights The Alliance Defense Fund

Reason #1
The people oppose same-sex marriage.
This is a government by the people, for the people.

Support for legalizing "gay marriage" in Massachusetts has dropped by 12 percentage points, from 48% in an earlier poll to 35%, according to a Boston Globe poll released February 21.
At the same time, opposition to the Supreme Judicial Court's (SJC) November 18 ruling increased by 14 percentage points, from 38% to 52%.
Some 71% of Massachusetts citizens said voters in a statewide referendum should decide the issue.
A December 2003 Zogby poll conducted in Massachusetts shows that 69% of the state's voters believe it is best for children to be raised in a household with a married mother and father.

Delaware has the second-most business-friendly legal system in America, according to a survey of corporate attorneys conducted by the US Chamber of Commerce.

The survey asked 1,402 senior corporate attorneys nationwide to rank factors such as the treatment of liability and class action suits; punitive damages; judges' impartiality and competence; and jury predictability and fairness.

Nebraska has ranked among the top five states for the past two years.

US Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue says a wide gap between the best and worst states in "legal fairness" shows the need for reform of the legal system at state and federal levels.

Donohue says, "This is a comprehensive problem that needs comprehensive solutions. We need federal legislative reforms for class actions, asbestos litigation and medical malpractice."

The top five states in the study were Delaware, Nebraska, Virginia, Iowa and Idaho.

The bottom five states were California, Louisiana, Alabama, West Virginia and Mississippi.

The inhabitants of ancient Egypt were called mummies. They lived in the Sarah Dessert and traveled by Camelot. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere, so certain areas of the dessert are cultivated by irritation. The Egyptians built the Pyramids in the shape of a huge triangular cube. The Pyramids are a range of mountains between France and Spain.

The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. On of their children, Cain, once asked, "Am I my brother's son?" God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on Mount Montezuma. Jacob, son of Isaac, stole his brother's birth mark. Jacob was a patriarch who brought up his twelve sons to be patriarchs, but they did not take it. One of Jacob's sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites.

Pharaoh forced the Hebrew slaves to make bread without straw. Moses led them to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with the Philatelists, a race of people who lived in the Biblical times. Soloman, one of David's sons, had 500 wives and 500 porcupines.

Without the Greeks we wouldn't have history. The Greeks invented three kinds of columns - Corinthian, Doric, and Ironic. They also had myths. A myth is a female moth. One myth says that the mother of Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx until he became intollerable. Achilles appears in The Iliad, by Homer. Homer also wrote The Oddity, in which Penelope was the last hardship that Ulysses endured on his journey. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name.

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock.

In the Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, the threw the java. The reward to the victor was a coral wreath. The government of Athens was democratic because people took the law into their own hands. There were no wars in Greece, as the mountains were so high that they couldn't climb over to see what their neighbors were doing. When they fought with the Persians, the Greeks were outnumbered because the Persians had more men.

Eventually, the Ramons conquered the Greeks. History calls people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long. At Roman banquets, the guests wore garlic in their hair. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be made king. Nero was a cruel tyranny who would turture his poor subjects by playing the fiddle to them.

Then came the Middle Ages. King Alfred conquered the Dames. King Arthur lived in the Age of Shivery, King Harold mustarded his troops before the Battle of Hastings, Joan of Arc was canonized by Bernard Shaw, and victims of the Black Death grew boobs on their necks. Finally, Magna Carta provided that no free man should be hanged twice for the same offense.

In medevil time most of the people were alliterate. The greatest writer of the time was Chaucer, who wrote many poems and versus and also wrote literature. Another tale tells of William Tell, who shot an arrow through an apple while standing on his son's head.

The Renaissance was an age in which more individuals felt the value of their human being. Martin Luther was nailed to the church door at Wittenberg for selling papal indulgences. He died a horrible death, being excommunicated by a bull. It was the painter Donatello's interes in the female nude that made him the father of the Renaissance. It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg invented the Bible. Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented cigarettes. Another important invention was the circulation of blood. Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100 foot clipper.

The government of England was a limited mockery. Henry VIII found walking difficult because he had an abbess on his knee. Queen Elizabeth was the "Virgin Queen." As a queen she was a success. When Elizabeth exposed herself before her troops, they all shouted, "hurrah." Then her navy went out and defeated the Spanish Armadillo.

The greatest write of the Renaissance was William Shakespear. Shakespear never made much money and is only famous because of his plays. He lived at Windsor with his merry wives, writing tragedies, comedies and errors. In one of Shakespear's famous plays, Hamlet rations out his situation by relieving himself in a long soliloquy. In another, Lady Macbeth tried to convince Macbeth to kill the Kind by attack his manhood. Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couplet. Writing at the same time as Shakespear was Miguel Cervantes. He wrote Donkey Hote. The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote Paradise Lost. Then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained.

During the Renaissance America began. Christopher Columbus was a great navigator who discovered America while cursing about the Atlantic. His ships were called the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Fe. Later, the Pilgrims crossed the Ocean, and this was known as Pilgrims Progress. When they landed at Plymouth Rock, they were greeted by the Indians, who came down the hill rolling their war hoops before them. The Indian squabs carried porpoises on their back. Many of the Indian heroes were killed, along with their cabooses, which proved very fatal for them. The winter of 1620 was a hard one for the settlers. Many people died and many babies were born. Captain John Smith was responsible for all this.

A non-Christian can not objectively criticize christianity because a non-Christian has never been in a Christians place. Where as all Christians have come from thier place and can objectively criticize them.
Fortunately God mutes most Christians desire to do so.

My idea of a personality test. (caution it takes a year to accomplish)

What you try to do to others will eventually happen to you.

If you try to destroy others then you will be destroyed.

If you try to help others then you will be helped.

If you try to comfort others then you will be comforted.

If you try to enrich others then you will be enriched.

If you try to help others to live then you will live.

If you try to deny others then you will be denied.

If you take from others then you will be taken from.

If you try to call good evil then you will be called evil.

If you try to ignore others then you will be ignored.

If you lie then you will be lied to.

There are a million other things that I could add to this and I'm sure that others could too in fact I invite you to do so. But before you decide to criticize this try it for yourself for a year or so. If you discover that these things didn't work for you then you are deaf dumb blind stupid selfish selfcentered miserable wretch of a human being.

THIS Alone Controls How Much You Eat The size of your stomach size alone--and not the size of your body--affects your feeling of fullness during a meal and thus how much food you want to eat, reports Reuters of new research from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota. The most important takeaway: The factors that control our stomach volume could be the best way to fight obesity.
The Mayo Clinic researchers found that people who were overweight or obese took longer to feel full and needed more calories at mealtime than people of normal weight. What's most interesting is that this is not a simple correlation of bigger people having bigger stomachs. Instead, it is fasting gastric volume, which is the size of a person's empty stomach, that is directly related to the feeling of fullness--no matter how large or small the person's whole body.
Even the researchers were surprised by this. Lead study author Dr. Michael Camilleri told Reuters that body mass index (or BMI) is independent of fasting gastric volume. He suggested that changes in diet or the patterns of food intake, such as eating several small meals throughout the day, could help control a person's stomach volume and help with weight loss. The research findings were published in the journal Gastroenterology.

Ex-Congressional Aide Charged With Spying

NEW YORK (AP) - A former journalist and congressional press secretary was arrested Thursday on charges she acted as an Iraqi spy before and after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, accepting $10,000 for her work, prosecutors said Thursday.

Susan Lindauer, 41, was arrested in her hometown of Takoma Park, Md., and was to appear in court later in the day in Baltimore, authorities in New York said.

She was accused of conspiring to act as a spy for the Iraqi Intelligence Service and engaging in prohibited financial transactions involving the government of Iraq under dictator Saddam Hussein.

Lindauer worked at Fortune, U.S. News & World Report and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer before beginning her career as a political publicist.

She worked for Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore. in 1993 and then Rep. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., in 1994 before joining the office of former Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun as press secretary in 1996. From March to May 2002, she worked for Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif.

``Her position was eliminated in the downsizing following the 1994 elections,'' said Josh Kardon, chief of staff for now-Sen. Wyden. ``She worked for us a short period of time.''

Moseley-Braun's current spokesperson, Loretta Kane, said the former senator does not remember Lindauer.

According to an indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Lindauer made multiple visits from October 1999 through March 2002 to the Iraqi Mission to the United Nations in Manhattan. The indictment makes no mention of her congressional staff work.

There, she met with several members of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, the foreign intelligence arm of the government of Iraq that allegedly has played a role in terrorist operations, including an attempted assassination of former President George H.W. Bush, the indictment alleged.

The government said she accepted payments from the Iraqis for her services and expenses amounting to a total of $10,000, including $5,000 she received during a trip to Baghdad in February and March 2002.

Her acceptance of the money and her willingness to bring it home from Iraq violated a law prohibiting transactions with a government that sponsors international terrorism, the government said. The indictment did not specify a motive.

The charges against Lindauer were included in an expanded indictment in the case against Raed Rokan Al-Anbuge, 28, and Wisam Noman Al-Anbuke, the sons of Iraq's former liaison with United Nations weapons inspectors.

The brothers were charged last year with acting as Iraqi government agents and conspiring to do so, prosecutors said. The indictment said Lindauer conspired with the brothers.

On Jan. 8, 2003, prosecutors said, Lindauer tried to influence U.S. foreign policy by delivering to the home of a U.S. government official a letter in which she conveyed her access to and contacts with members of Saddam's regime. The official was not identified in the indictment.

The United States invaded Iraq in March of last year, and the government fell the following month.

The indictment said she met on two occasions in Baltimore in June and July with an undercover FBI agent who posed as a Libyan intelligence representative who was seeking to support resistance groups in postwar Iraq. It said she discussed the need for plans and foreign resources to support these groups.

According to the indictment, she continued to correspond with the undercover agent until last month and followed the agent's instructions to leave packages on two occasions in August in ``dead drop'' operations.

Lindauer, who was not immediately assigned a defense lawyer, faces up to 10 years in prison on the most serious charge and five years on the lesser charge if she is convicted, prosecutors said.

More than a half dozen FBI agents could be seen searching Lindauer's residence in Takoma Park, a city known for its liberal views. Her neighbors recalled her as friendly.

Joao Luiz Vieire de Castro, 39, described Lindauer as ``a regular American who walks her dog in the mornings and the afternoon.''

``It's a big surprise. Who would think that it's (espionage) in your neighborhood?'' said Dean Paris, 45, who sometimes greeted Lindauer on the street, which is less than a mile from the District of Columbia line. Paris said he never saw anything suspicious.

But Malvina Lacey, who lives next door to Lindauer, added, ``She lives in a fantasy world.''

Associated Press writer Derrill Holly in Takoma Park, Md., contributed to this story.

A little health, a little science


A new study shows that laughter really is the best therapy for stroke patients, according to scientists.

The research, conducted at Graz University in Austria, showed that laughter therapy helped people recovering from strokes lower their blood pressure.

Thirty patients in the study were split up into two groups. One group took part in regular "Laughter Yoga" sessions over a six-week period, while the other practised movement exercises only.

This laughter therapy combines laughing techniques with breathing exercises and patients involved in the test took part in three half-hour weekly sessions.

Psychologist Ilona Papousek, who headed the research, says, "This is the first study that shows that laughter has an effect on blood pressure.

"Blood pressure levels remained roughly the same in the movement group but dropped significantly in the laughter group.

Physical exercises were similar in both groups, meaning we can ascribe the positive effects to the laughter training. The mood improved in both groups but more noticeably so in the laughter group."


A short strand of DNA could become the sunscreen of the future, according to American researchers.

Scientists at Boston University School of Medicine found a DNA fragment called pTT can help repair and prevent skin damage caused by UV radiation.

PTT triggers a protein, called p53, that suppresses the growth of tumours, and helps repair damaged DNA.

The findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Scientists exposed hairless mice to UV radiation through sunlamps and found that mice with pTT rubbed into their skin were six times less likely to develop a tumour.

Lead researcher Dr David Goukassian says the pTT was "effectively telling the cells to cope better with the UV".

He adds, "We hope that this could lead to new treatments being developed and we are working on it as fast as we can."


The American space agency's Mars rovers may work for up to 240 days on the Red Planet, about 150 more than the mission team had originally projected.

Mission engineers have analysed power data for both Spirit and Opportunity which shows the vehicles are performing much better than they had expected.

It means the rovers can keep scouting Mars for many more interesting rocks.

Lead scientist Professor Steve Squyres made the announcement by satellite link-up to a Mars conference in London. But the mission team adds that its original estimates of Mars' environment and the rovers' performance were very conservative.

The rovers use energy from the Sun to power their batteries, using triangular solar panels that sit horizontally around their waists. The panels have proven to be very efficient.

In addition, the rovers have not needed to use up as much power for heating because the Mars climate has been warmer than projections implied.

Our federal prosecuters look like a bunch of lieing cheating clowns.

In reality, Martha Stewart stands accused of saying she could not recall details of a two-minute phone conversation on Dec. 27, 2001, while the government claims to know precisely what she recalled. She also stands accused of sometimes confusing her broker with her broker's assistant. Her broker, in turn, is charged with using two different pens, quite possibly on the same day

Justice: where conviction is paramount and justice non-existant
From links at Al's site

Martha Stewart was indicted for lying and obstructing justice. For these offenses to have any meaning, there must be a crime that she lied about and obstructed. The prosecutors presented no such crime. Stewart was indicted and convicted for lying and
obstructing a crime when no crime happened.

Already 95% of felony cases are settled with a coerced plea bargain, because judges and juries routinely fail in their function of protecting defendants from prosecutorial abuse. Time after time, innocent defendants are convicted on fabricated evidence while exculpatory evidence is withheld. Based on the new DNA evidence, a large percentage of convicted murderers and rapists has been found innocent.


Like I have been saying. Because our justice system has failed the United States of America is a name only.

Philosophy is the effort at defining a core around which systems can be built.

Prophecy is future predicted.

Jesus gives an explanation why God made some biblical prophecy hard for ordinary men to understand and forsee. So the world would fall into the trap. If the world knew the answers to the prevention or believed the answers then the prophecies would be avoided. There is hope.
For if the world could have this explained it is possible for Jesus to come and heal it.

Mr 4:12 that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them

This Alan is the answer we were looking for. But It is only by the will of God that this will happen yet there is hope.

Mt 24:43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Mt13:10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Mt 13:11And he answered and said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Mt 13:12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he hath. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Mt 13:13Therefore speak I to them in parables; because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Mt 13:14And unto them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall in no wise understand; And seeing ye shall see, and shall in no wise perceive: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Mt 13:15For this people`s heart is waxed gross, And their ears are dull of hearing, And their eyes they have closed; Lest haply they should perceive with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And should turn again, And I should heal them. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Mt 13:16But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Mt 13:17For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which ye see, and saw them not; and to hear the things which ye hear, and heard them not. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just
Yes there is hope.

Surprising New Trend For Spring Break

Want to know where the boys are going on spring break? They're following the girls--and it's not to the beach. The hottest spring break destinations for college students are locales where charity work is being done, such as building houses and distributing medical supplies to disadvantaged folks in the United States and other countries.

That's the word from Purdue University professor Xinran Lehto, who specializes in tourism marketing. Spring break bookings by college students for the traditional warm weather havens are down by as much as 50 percent, reports Wireless Flash. That doesn't surprise Lehto, who says "volunteer tourism" trips are all the rage among the college crowd.

Professor Lehto conducted a survey at Purdue to find out what students planned to do over spring break. The results:
--15 percent will go on a volunteer service vacation.
--15 percent will go on a traditional spring break.
--40 percent will go home to visit Mom and Dad.
--10 percent will stay at school and work.

Apparently 20 percent don't have a clue.

Sometimes I wonder why I bother when it is a fact that over the next uspecified period of time between now and that great meteor there is a time of struggle between four kings and transgressors that will be incredible. But it is clear by scripture that there is a fullness of time for the transgressors.

Da 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

More on this later.

Da 8:8 And the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and instead of it there came up four notable [horns] toward the four winds of heaven.

There is out there a king, this king has yet to be broken but the verse does not specify the breaker-it just is broken. The bragging phase has not begun in earnest yet even though there has been some also the trampling of the Ram does not appear to be quite complete. Until this is done the great horn won't be broken or breakable.

Mt 21:44 And he that falleth on this stone shall be broken to pieces: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will scatter him as dust .
There is an under tow in this country to try and oust Christianity. That is not good for them because the scripture is clear that they will be broken.

From G4862 and θλάω thlaō (to crush); to dash together, that is, shatter: - break.7665
A primitive root; to burst (literally or figuratively): - break (down, off, in pieces, up), broken ([-hearted]), bring to the birth, crush, destroy, hurt, quench, X quite, tear, view [by mistake for H7663].
שׁבר שׂבר
śâbar shâbar
saw-bar', shaw-bar'
The second form being used erroneously in Neh_2:13, Neh_2:15; a primitive root; to scrutinize; by implication (of watching) to expect (with hope and patience): - hope, tarry, view, wait.

I have heard many a sermon preached by pastors and men of God about the brokenness of men before God which causes a man to turn to Jesus. I am like many other people in that I float between optimism and pessimism yet prefer the much better state of mind of optimism. So I offer this hope. Men may yet come to Jesus in their most humblest of moments and find that all of the longings of their heart could not be filled by anything of this earth, the absence of God in the heart of our soul is too vast. The Kingdom of the great horn may be broken but the men of it and it's king may yet find the true kingdom of God and yet be saved unto the posterity of eternity with God by Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords. Only say the words Jesus save me forgive me of my sins, and enter into a new kingdom.

In the near future: after the bragging and breaking of the great horn, there shall rise up for this horn four kingdoms and four kings which I believe shall then be doing battle with the transgressors,or no less the transgressors will be an annoyance to them.
In the mean time we have a gap and in this gap revival is abounding to the tune of an added 100,000 people saved a day. That is to say that world wide
in 1997 100,000 people a day were accepting Jesus as their savior. And as of 2003 200,000 a day.
I feel a moment of peace and a moment of desperation on the part of transgressors. Both do my heart good. Yet to the transgressors as long as their is breath in your lungs and thought in your minds you may yet become saved. And once saved you won't go back. Jesus won't let you.

day 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the glorious [land

We have to remember that this vision is just prior to the end. I read that at this time to mean just before the tribulation.(refer to my previous blog dated tue. Mar. 2 on the time of this vision.)

So This king may not be the final and horrible king just a nasty one. One which saints endure while they continue to spread the gospel.

Well that's enough for the day. I'm on to other stuff for now.
Never mind although The Mighty Barrister is a good site and has a very pertinent comment along the lines of razor sharp the kind I like, I thought it important to put the whole artice in my own archives.

Women forced to have abortions?
Expectant mother who screamed 'stop' will petition Supreme Court

Posted: March 9, 2004
1:00 a.m. Eastern

© 2004

Responding to a recent ruling allowing forced abortions, a former judge is petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to acknowledge a woman's "right to say no."

An appeals court ruled earlier this year an expectant mother can be aborted by force if the physician argues it is necessary to "protect the health of the mother."

But pro-life attorney Chris Sapp is prepared to challenge the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling Jan. 23 in Roe II v. Aware Women Center for Choice, Inc., says the Virginia-based Population Research Institute. PRI is "dedicated to ending human rights abuses committed in the name of 'family planning,' and to ending counter-productive social and economic paradigms premised on the myth of 'overpopulation.'"

Sapp is asking the U.S. Supreme Court for a writ of certiori acknowledging a woman's right to say "no" to an abortion at any point in time.

His argument is based on the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances, or FACE Act, which makes violation of a woman's right to receive reproductive health care a federal crime.

If a woman had a right to enter a clinic to get an abortion, Sapp contended, she also has a right to leave a clinic in order to protect herself and her baby.

'My God, you're hurting me'

The Roe II case began March 29, 1997, when a young, pregnant mother entered the Aware Women Center for Choice clinic in Florida to get an abortion.

According to RPI, William P. Egherman, who has performed more than 10,000 abortions and been addicted to alcohol and opiates, began the procedure by attempting to dilate the woman's cervix.

But the woman had a change of heart.

"My God, you're hurting me" the woman began to scream. "You're killing me, I'll never be able to have babies. ... Stop!"

But Egherman ignored the pleas and screams and called for assistance from clinic workers who held the woman down as he continued to dilate her cervix.

Then he entered the victim with a pair of forceps -- "the bear" Ehgerman called them -- and began probing and pulling. He mistakenly pulled out part of the woman's intestines.

Sapp, who represented the woman, said she described it as like being drawn and quartered.

When he realized what he had done, Egherman heavily sedated the woman then he called for an ambulance.

But he instructed the ambulance to come slowly, without lights or sirens, to give him "time to pack the woman with gauze."

Egherman said he also was worried his regular flow of business would be interrupted by "all the hoopla."

"Saturday's our big day," he explained, "and I didn't want to generate Â… any more confusion, any more panic than was already present at the time. She was loud, and as I said, she was shrill, and there were a lot of patients who were hearing what was going on, and the normal rhythm of the day was interrupted. The other patients must have been terrified, and I didn't want the ambulance showing up with all the lights and sirens. Â…"

The woman underwent an operation at the hospital and the damage to her internal organs was repaired. But her baby was dead.

The matter would have ended at that point if not for Sapp's federal suit, arguing Egherman had violated the FACE Act.

Sapp argued forcing the abortion procedure and preventing the woman from going immediately to a hospital where her pregnancy could have been saved violated her reproductive rights.

Egherman's defense attorneys maintained "if he had to go back in" in order to protect the woman's health, then this would not constitute a violation of the FACE Act.

On a summary judgment, the appeals court agreed, but Sapp asserts the evidence shows the abortion had just begun when the woman called for Egherman to stop and that he went "back in" to perform the abortion against her will.

"This ruling does establish a precedent for forced abortion," Sapp said.

For example, he said, an expectant mother receiving a routine gynecological exam could be held down and forcibly aborted. The physician would simply have to argue the abortion was necessary to protect the mother's health or life, which would not violate the FACE Act.

Boyfriend 'already paid for it'

PRI said it has learned of another case of forced abortion. A 25-year-old Maryland woman, four months pregnant, changed her mind after being taken to the procedure room.

She ran back to the clinic entrance where her boyfriend stopped her. The boyfriend said she must get an abortion, "I've already paid for it."

Three clinic workers and the abortion performers surrounded the women, sedated her by injection, then took her back into the procedure room. After the forced abortion, she awoke in a closet.

Love Coffee? You'll Like This Good News Pour that second cup of coffee. Hey, go for a third or even a fourth! A new study from Finland concludes that people who drink coffee and other caffeinated beverages reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, reports Reuters. This isn't the first study to reach this conclusion. A similar association was found in 2002 by Dutch researchers.

The study: The research term, led by Dr. Jaako Tuomilehto, from the National Public Health Institute in Helsinki, analyzed data from surveys conducted in 1982, 1987, and 1992 to assess the link between coffee intake and diabetes in 6,974 men and 7,655 women, reports Reuters. None of the participants had diabetes, heart disease, and stroke when the various studies began. The average follow-up period was 12 years. During this time, 381 of the 14,629 volunteers developed type 2 diabetes.

The results: Compared with those who drank no coffee or up to two cups a day, men and women who drank up to 10 cups daily were 55 percent and 79 percent less likely, respectively, to develop diabetes. Coffee's protective effect against diabetes persisted even after other factors were taken into account, including body weight, smoking status, alcohol use, and consumption of filtered or non-filtered coffee.

Here's the question of the day: How does coffee reduce the risk of diabetes? The researchers don't know. It may be the caffeine, but it may be other ingredients instead. The research findings were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association

Kerry is a traiter, but were not prosecuting traitors anymore, the Democrats are trying to get him elected President of the U.S.. And if this country does then were stupider than I thought.

Retired Maj. Gen. George S. Patton III, who had commanded combat troops in Vietnam, said that, medals or no medals, by the nature of his wartime protests Kerry gave "aid and comfort to the enemy" in the style of Ramsey Clark and Jane Fonda. "Mr. Kerry probably caused some of my guys to get killed," Patton said, even as he self-deprecatingly acknowledged shortcomings of his own as a commander. "And I don't like that. There is no soap ever invented that can wash that blood off his hands."
This is a quote worthy of note.

From the movie Second Hand Lions, staring Michael Caine and Robert Duval.

Hub says", People are basically good, that honor courage and virtue are everything, that power and money,money and power mean nothing. That good always triumphs over evil. And I want you to remember this. That true love, true love never dies. You remember that boy.
Man should believe in those things because those things are worth believing in."
Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mat 15:10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
Mat 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
Mat 15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
Mat 15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

I find it amusing that all of the accusations against King James not one of them have ever been backed up by a shred of evidence.

It is interesting; also, that many of James critics when confronted with the revelation that they have no objective, probative eyewitness testimony to their claims, that they shy away from this principle. Some even attempt to turn the tables and insist that the negative position pick up and assume their own abandoned burden that is incumbent upon the affirmative. This can only be indicative of the tragic desperation of their case.
I just got a new powered subwoofer and added it to my already patchwork system and even though it is not the worlds most powerful (75 watts) woo wee thumper.

So I put in a Rebecca St. James (Christian CD) and tuned into track no. 11. It has a part that especially calming for me. The sound of thundering hooves. The sound of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and his army returning to miserably destroy our enemies.

Insight into my personality:

I'm a prolific yakker.
An Amazing Story told by Paul Harvey. If you have not heard this, it is remarkable!

Years ago, a hardworking man took his family from New York State to Australia to take advantage of a work opportunity there. A member of this man's family was a handsome young son who had aspirations of joining the circus as a trapeze artist or an actor.

This young fellow, biding his time until a circus job or even one as stagehand came along, worked at the local shipyards that bordered on the worse section of town. Walking home from work one evening, this young man was attacked by five thugs who wanted to rob him. Instead of just giving up his money, the young fellow resisted. However, they bested him easily and proceeded to beat him to a pulp.

They mashed his face with their boots, and kicked and beat his body brutally with clubs, leaving him for dead. When the police happened to find him lying in the road, they assumed he was dead and called for the Morgue Wagon.

On the way to the morgue, a policeman heard him gasp for air, and they immediately took him to the emergency unit at the hospital. When he was placed on a gurney, a nurse remarked to her horror, that this young man no longer had a face. Each eye socket was smashed, his skull, legs, and arms fractured, his nose literally hanging from his face, all his teeth were gone, and his jaw was almost completely torn from his skull.

Although his life was spared, he spent over a year in the hospital. When he finally left, his body may have healed but his face was disgusting to look at. He was no longer the handsome youth that everyone admired.

When the young man started to look for work again, he was turned down by everyone just on account of the way he looked. One potential employer suggested to him that he join the freak show at the circus as The Man Who Had No Face. He did this for a while.

He was still rejected by everyone, and no one wanted to be seen in his company. He had thoughts of suicide. This went on for five years. One day he passed a church and sought some solace there.

Entering the church, he encountered a priest who had seen him sobbing while kneeling in a pew. The priest took pity on him and took him to the rectory where they talked at length. The priest was impressed with him to such a degree that he said that he would do everything possible for him that could be done to restore his dignity and life, if the young man would promise to be the best Catholic he could be, and trust in God's mercy to free him from his tortuous life.

The young man went to Mass and Communion every day, and after thanking God for saving his life, asked God to only give him peace of mind and the grace to be the best man he could ever be in His eyes.

The priest, through his personal contacts, was able to secure the services of the best plastic surgeon in Australia. They would be no cost to the young man, as the doctor was the priest's best friend. The doctor too was so impressed by the young man, whose outlook now on life, even though he had experienced the worst, was filled with good humor and love.

The surgery was a miraculous success. All the best dental work was also done for him. The young man became everything he promised God he would be. He was also blessed with a wonderful, beautiful wife and many children, as well as success in an industry which would have been the furthest thing from his mind as a career, if not for the goodness of God and the love of the people who cared for him. This he acknowledges publicly.

The young man was and is Mel Gibson.

His life was the inspiration for his production of the movie "The Man Without A Face." He is to be admired by all of us as a God fearing man, a political conservative, and an example to all as a true man of courage.

To think I admired him before I knew any of this! He is quite a man!

His movie concerning the death of Jesus comes out this month. This just shows how God uses the impossible for his honor and Glory!
