This could very well be one of the worst written news stories of the year. How the writer and editor could print this with a straight face only demonstrates how liberal the media truly is.
The headline reads:
Political experts say McCain in trouble
And just who are the so-called, “experts”? A panel of media people.
When you read who was on the panel, it’s no surprise they’ve already buried John McCain.
Here are a few clues.
It's a male.
He's seen on TV.
He's seen on TV a lot.
He's been around for a long time.
He has a very common first name.
You'd never guess...
More mockery of traditional marriage.
Last month, a couple wanted to get married in California. Because California marriage licenses had the terms, “Party A” and “Party B” on the papers, the couple wrote next to those words, “bride” and “groom." They wanted to be recognized as husband and wife.
Their marriage license was denied and their pastor, Doug Bird of Abundant Life Fellowship in Roseville was ticked:
"What's next? Will the State of California force [ministers] to use the terms "Party A" and "Party B" in the ceremony itself?"
In a 4-3 decision, California's Supreme Court declared that legal definitions of marriage as a union between a man and a woman were unconstitutional. Since the ruling, the generic designations of “Party A” and “Party B” have been inserted into legal documents.
Proposition 8 is on the California ballot in November. The measure would ban same-sex marriages in the state.
Some sanity is back as the California Department of Public Health has just announced that by popular demand, the words “bride” and “groom” will return on marriage license forms. County clerks will be required to start using the amended forms November 17, 2008. There will be blank spaces for applicants' names and personal information next to the words "First Person Data" and "Second Person Data" and optional boxes for checking "bride" or "groom."
What’s wrong with primary enforcement of seat belts? Plenty.
1) Approving public policy based on federal blackmail is wrong. The policy should be decided on the merits.
2) Do we want law enforcement concentrating on searching for motorists not buckled up? Don’t they have more important things to handle?
3) Anyone who thinks this won’t be used as a revenue generator by police is crazy.
