The National Center for Policy Analysis has a list of 15 Myths About Gun Control. (OK, it’s a 10-year-old policy report, but I just bumped into it.) It really deconstructs the claims of the left about how gun control supposedly “works”. I’d consider it required reading before entering the debate.

    Consider this quote:…

    Consider this quote:…
    Consider this quote: “Does this money, when it goes to the families of unwed mothers on welfare, tell another woman, ‘Go have babies yourselves, and we will give your family money?’ This is ridiculous.”

    Yet that is what has happened. In far too many instances, unwed mothers on welfare had more babies knowing that they could get more money, disregarding the children. And we thought that this made sense. Could there not have been a better way to provide for needy families than by the welfare system? Hard to know, since liberals treat welfare as some sacred cow.

    I must admit, that quote is a bit fabricated. The actual quote, from Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, is:

    “Does this money, when it goes to the families of the suicide bombers, tell another boy or girl, ‘Go kill yourselves, and we will give your family money?’ This is ridiculous.”

    Wonder how many liberals recognize a connection between Saudi government money and suicide bombers, but fail to see the same connection between U.S. government money and welfare babies. You get more of what what you pay for. It’s as simple as that.

      Consider this interesting take on ‘pedophile priests’. David Kupelian tells us that the vast majority of the cases are not against pre-pubescent boys, but of older teenagers (which I alluded to earlier). Further, between 90 and 98 percent of those cases are against males. If the priests involved had the same heterosexual / homosexual mix as in the general population, wouldn’t you expect that the ratio would be the exact opposite of what it is? Shouldn’t we be hearing about 98% of the victims being girls?

      Dave also makes a great case for the Boy Scouts in all of this. Aren’t they in hot water over trying to prevent the very thing priests are being accused of? And do liberals arguing against both really not see the contradiction?

        Hmmm, maybe if those…

        Hmmm, maybe if those…
        Hmmm, maybe if those priest hold out long enough, they’ll be retroactively exhonorated. Dr. Laura Schlessinger points out that junk science and liberals with an agenda have fired the first major salvo in the new front on the culture war–accepting pedophilia as normal and, in fact, good for children.

        When I used to debate on a local computer bulletin board about how “pushing the envelope” meant that after homosexuality was considered normal then pedophilia was next, I was taken to task for using extreme examples to try to make a point. That would never happen. Folks, when it comes to “liberal values” (oxymoron, I know), there is no extreme, except the eradication of values (read: “tolerance”).

          Sure enough, a study…

          Sure enough, a study…
          Sure enough, a study comes out to prove (again) that homosexuality & pedophilia are linked. Here’s an article describing “Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement”, a study by Steve Baldwin. Bet this gets short shrift from the mainstream press, and they still refuse to acknowledge the homosexual angle in the priest pedophilia issue.

            Consider this: Yest…

            Consider this: Yest…
            Consider this: Yesterday the Pope said that priests should stay celibate, in response to those calling for the removal of that requirement. The AP story on this said that the Pope “didn’t refer to sex offenders or pedophilia”, but they neglected to point out that he didn’t mention homosexuality either.

            And that’s what I’m noticing in the press when it comes to this issue. Regardless of age, and they’re not all under 10 years old mind you, those abused by priests have been all male. The issues, as framed by the media and liberal pundits, are sexual abuse and pedophilia, but they barely, if ever (and I’ve yet to hear them say it myself) mention the homosexual aspect of it, and yet it’s just as much an issue in these cases as the other two.

            Bernie Goldberg called it right; it’s bias. It’s bias both in the choice of what news to present, and, as in this case, how the news is presented. The liberal media dare not ruffle the feathers of those they agree with, so out the window goes objectivity and full disclosure. It’s no longer a journalist’s duty to simply say what is, now they are trying to effect change by distorting what is, presenting an incomplete or slanted picture.

            Journalists journal. Or at least that’s what their supposed to do.

              A while back, I “considered” creating an “essay” that I would add to on a semi-irregular basis, much like Great Quotes from the Internet. But then I bumped into the “blogging” phenomenon and saw how similiar it was to what I had planned. And Blogger.com makes it so simple.

              So, without further “ado”, I present to you “Considerettes”; conservative commentary served up in bite-sized bits.
