Australia's Leftist leader opposes abortion: "Kim Beazley has publicly declared his opposition to abortion, sparking concern and division among pro-choice ALP MPs as a powerful bipartisan pro-life coalition entered the fray for the first time. In a clear shift from former leader Mark Latham's pro-choice stance on abortion, Mr Beazley said he did not support applying criminal sanctions, backing greater support and education for women. Mr Beazley, a committed Christian, described his view yesterday as a personal "moral stance" and strongly rejected any moves to criminalise abortion for women.

There is a very detailed article here showing that it was the American media that won the Vietnam war for the Communists.

Soviet America? "Every parent in America should be made aware of a presidential initiative called the "New Freedom Commission on Mental Health." This commission issued a report last year calling for the mandatory mental health screening of American schoolchildren, meaning millions of kids will be forced to undergo psychiatric screening whether their parents consent or not. At issue is the fundamental right of parents to decide what medical treatment is appropriate for their children. Forced mental health screening simply has no place in a free or decent society. The government does not own you or your kids, and it has no legitimate authority to interfere in your family's intimate health matters. Psychiatric diagnoses are inherently subjective, and the drugs regularly prescribed produce serious side effects, especially in children's developing brains. The bottom line is that mental health issues are a matter for parents, children, and their doctors, not government".

Blacks above the law? "The NAACP, the nation's oldest civil rights organization, is refusing to cooperate with an IRS investigation into whether its chairman made an improper political speech, charging that the timing of the probe was itself politically motivated. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said in October that the group's tax-exempt status was under review after its chairman, Julian Bond, gave a speech that criticized President Bush. In a letter to the IRS on Thursday, NAACP attorneys said the group will not hand over documents requested in the probe ..... The IRS has said it's probing about 60 charities, churches and other tax-exempt groups for potentially breaking federal rules that bar them from participating in political activity".

The New Victorians is an interest group that might be of interest to some of my readers. I am myself a member. I have always said that the people of the Victorian era had a lot of things right -- things that modern-day society gets wrong -- such as making a distinction between the deserving and the undeserving poor.

I know I should not give a fruitloop a link but I cannot help being amused that the blogger who runs a Leftist imitation of this site has not yet figured out how to put his archive links on a separate page, as I do.

My latest posting on MarxWords shows that Marx had the typical antisemite's deep suspicion of "Jewish bankers". My latest posting on "A scripture blog" looks at Isaiah 43:10 -- "Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me"



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.
