Illegal Day Of Prayer, A Costly Taxi Ride And Schwarzenegger Wants Money

April 23, 2010 by  

*Judge outlaws National Day of Prayer. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Last week, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb declared that the National Day of Prayer—something the nation has honored since it was first proclaimed by President Harry Truman back in 1952—is unconstitutional. She was responding to a lawsuit filed by something called the Freedom from Religion Foundation. Despite the ruling, the White House says the president still intends to recognize a National Day of Prayer. Maybe we should all pray that judges read the Constitution again (if they ever have).

*No silly walk for this guy. Tens of thousands of people have had their travel plans disrupted thanks to ash clouds from a volcano in Iceland that spread over much of Europe. One of them was my favorite English funnyman, John Cleese, of the “Ministry of Silly Walks” fame. Cleese was stranded in Oslo, Norway, after a TV appearance there. When he couldn’t find any other way to get home he hired a cab to drive him to Brussels, where he caught a train to London. Total cost of the trip: a hefty $5,140.

*“Bring your money, buddy.” I’ve written before about the flight of capital from California. Something like 25 percent of the state’s millionaires have fled to less taxing states. But here’s a twist: A multimillionaire I know is moving to Newport Beach from an eastern city. A few weeks ago he received a personal phone call welcoming him to the state from embattled governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Near the end of the call the governor said, “And please bring your money with you.”

    You said of Reagan:
    “But being wrong or ineffectual didn’t make him evil. On the positive side, he brought the United States a new respect around the world. He said many of the right things—and he said them more eloquently than any president since the Founding Fathers. (And unlike JFK, he wrote most of the words he spoke.”

    Can’t you say the same of Barak Obama, after 8 long embarrassing years of George W. Bush?

    • Lee Abel

      No because GWB wasnt an embarrassment, and he sure was a better President than Obama.
      Obama have taken this country back 50 yrs in race relations, is trying to destroy a moral code that is a founding cornerstone of our freedom.
      I dont have sex with my girlfriend/wife in public, nor act lewd or lascivious with her because it my moral upbringing, but if two men or two women are getting busy in a restaurant booth to the point of actually being classified ad lewd or lascivious and you ask them to stop or suggest a cop stop them you are infringing on their “rights” or discrimination against them and can be sue/prosecuted your self.
      And it will be worse, in the US now states are saying that if you, as a man or woman dont feel like a you identify with your natural(ie equipment you was born with) sexual disposition, you can simply walk into the opposite sex bathroom/dressing room. Guess all the young boys in school that take gym can now simply ask and be allowed to join the girls PE class so he can see some boobies!
      No if we dont ask both parties/orientations to use some common sense and keep it in their pants, and actually live by a basic moral code ,yes built from religious beliefs based on the Bible. but because a person has no belief system based from religion, I or you cant say please dont do that in front of my kids/wife/etc.
      Strange that Obama and crew will side with 2% of the nations people, go against centuries of tradition and values to “accept” perversion over morals.
      Obama lies and twists facts and figure to suit him and his agenda, Some say Bush lied about WMDs, but the hard truth is that the information was simply out of date, big reason was we went into Clintons first term with over 4400 agents in middle east and 8 yrs later we had less than 400. Hard to keep tabs on terrorists with no assets.
      Certain items were sold by Hussein long before we took his ass out, today Obama would have been over there kissing his ass and trying to get some new industry built in Iraq.
      Used to be you kept your sexual perversions at home or at least in an obscure manner, now if you and your same sex partner want to hump on my table in a restaurant I cant complain for being discriminatory.
      Obama is a joke and will tear down more in race relations and equality than any other President ever.

  • Kenneth Robinson

    When our president, speaking over seas told the world we were not a Christian nation, he should have been removed from office. In my opinion when he made such a statement, he violated the oath he took when he was sworn into office.

  • USPatriot

    Educate, educate. Both parties + major corruption and greed + propaganda education + destruction of Christianity = USA collapse. Hold classes in your community on government, the constitution, the federal reserve, the Bilderberg group/Saul Alinksky tactics and the correct history of our founding fathers who held Christian principles and pray often. Then we will all vote for ethical conservatives, change the quality of education, reinstall Christian prinicples of our foundation, dissolve the federal reserve bank and jail those that refuse to defend and uphold the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.
