Rush Limbaugh Study to Show Yourself Approved

You know I was sitting here thinking about Rush Limbaugh and his attitudes towards liberals and their efforts to in the least give lip service to helping American citizens in need and at most provide assistance and relief to United States Citizens of all income groups and I could not help meditating on Limbaughs profound misunderstanding of National and World Affairs. 

The first thing that  kept going through my head was the international food crisis that is factually sweeping the world and how smart our government has been to plan for the poor, for the poor are always among us and always will be among us.  I also thought about the base of the Republican party blue collar religious individuals who are in desperate need of the programs and resources that the Democrats are proposing to help them.  Rush’s solution that tax cuts will create jobs and resources for this blue collar base is frankly ludicrous.  What Rush is failing to realize is that the world is increasinglya competitive world, an increasingly capitalist world, and captalists’ are playing on the international playing field not the National Playing field.  The only way to attract capital and capitalists to any Nation or society is to have a skilled workforce .  However according to several sources the quality of the United States Educational system is not competitive, is not even in the top ten of best educations in the world.  According to U-wire:

” The United States is falling when it comes to international education rankings, as recent studies show that other nations in the developed world have more effective education systems. “

” In both studies, Finland, Australia, Belgium, Austria, Hungary, Netherlands and the United Kingdom beat the United States, while the Asian nations of South Korea, Japan and Singapore ranked first through third, respectively. “

Now Rush is so fond of the word capitalism, in an increasingly technological world surely a smart capatalist survival of the fittest corporation is not going to bring his capital to the United States for complex jobs when all sources show that this is not the best place to get smart capital.  He’s going where the best capital is and it’s not the United States.  This is what smart legislators and a president realize.  If your human resources lack the skill to compete world wide, a smart government provides assistance so that they can eventually be able to compete. 

Finally I don’t know who Rush represents surely he does not represent blue collar workers becaue there jobs have been gone for a long time and the job losses we are dealing with are the stragglers,  surely Rush is not talking about the middle class becasue they are in need of help too.  Is Rush Limbaugh representing the Very wealthy.  Bill Gates has a foundation that provides food aide to hungry people all around the world and says that he’s grateful to public education and libraries for helping him to reach his full potential.  Surely he’s not talking about Warren Buffet because he says he believes in helping also.  I am a little confused as to who rush is representing.  The only people he seems to be representing so far are the virulent racists who are so prejudice that they will work against their very own interests. 

While yesterday Rush Limbaugh bragged on the fact theat he did not need a prompt to speak and could go on and on maybe Rush should do less talking and more studying  the bible and world affairs.  Below is a little bible lesson for Rush.

Virginia Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Part 2, Reuters Offers a different Perspective

In Uncategorized on May 20, 2008 at 7:58 pm

According to Reuters the Virginia Ban on abortion still makes the procedure known as extraction and dilation illegal which is the procedure where the baby is delivered vaginally and then killed.  This is still illegal in Virginia. Reuters is stating that the law is designed to enable a women to still have an abortion during the second trimester without penalizing the woman having the abortion and the doctor giving it.  In addition reuters is emphasizing the word procedure and implying that the supreme court decision banning partial birth abortion did not exactly apply to the third trimester but applied to the procedure of extraction and dilation.  Personally there is serious word play going on in this decision.  A doctor could give a woman medicine that will kill the fetus inside of her, then it will be dead and then it can be extracted.  The Reuters reporter is obviously engaging in serious word play that the 4th circuit must have agreed to.  In other words the 4th circuit is saying if you can kill a fetus in any other way besides delivering it or make it dead before it comes out of the womb then  even the ninth month of delivery  can be legally aborted.  This is my take on the issue.

Virginia Strikes Down Partial Birth Abortion Ban

You know I am not a member of the religious right.  I was raised Christian and my most vivid experiences with religion are in the rural Virginia  community of my grandparents at vacation bible school and Sunday School. What I remember most is not bible verses are endless Gospel Songs, but what is most vivid in my mind about this rural Virginia Community and religious experience is that people were just good to each other, they were good to me and they taught me to be kind.  My Grandparents had the type of house that I could consider a lighthouse, anyone in pain or in trouble could count on my grandparents and their children to be the helping hand.  Likewise in Georgia our house has become the house that people “strangers” come to when they are in trouble, when they need food, when they are evicted, when they need money, when they need to use the phone, and one night when a man was mugged on the street next to mine a man said he knocked on over ten doors for help until he reached our house and we opened this door.  As I said at this point in my life I am not particulalry religious, I am not a loyal church goer and may never become one but from my early experiences with goodness I have come to the conclusion that there is a circular nature of right and wrong and my moral code is basically what goes around comes around, if people are mean to you be good to them because it will all comes back to you.   This is why I am against abortion, because literally for me it does not feel right, it feels evil.  In order to ascertain if my feelings are shared by persons of different backgrounds I have had the “abortion” discussion with people of different backgrounds.  I have spoken with muslims and hindus who believethe practice is horrible.  The muslim woman I spoke to was especially vehement that Allah was against abortion.  After speaking with a couple of folks I realized that my abhorrence to abortion was legitimate and probably is anti to most world religions in the world with the exception of  a satanic cult. 

Virginia has stroke down the ban on partial birth abortion.  According to this Washington Post blog.   Virginia has deified a Supreme Court decision banning late term abortion,  which upheld the following and stated the following:

Under this law, “Any physician who, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, knowingly performs a partial-birth abortion and thereby kills a human fetus shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.” The law was enacted in 2003, and in 2007 its constitutionality was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, in the case of Gonzales v. Carhart.    

The federal law defines partial birth abortion as the following:

  “An abortion in which the person performing the abortion, deliberately and intentionally vaginally delivers a living fetus until, in the case of a head-first presentation, the entire fetal head is outside the body of the mother, or, in the case of breech presentation, any part of the fetal trunk past the navel is outside the body of the mother, for the purpose of performing an overt act that the person knows will kill the partially delivered living fetus; and performs the overt act, other than completion of delivery, that kills the partially delivered living fetus. (18 U.S. Code 1531)”

The Washington Post has a past article that defines partial birth abortion as the following: 

“It involves partly delivering the fetus and then crushing the skull to make removal easier. It is this procedure that Congress made a crime. Opponents say it is a form of infanticide, because the fetus could be viable at the time. It made doctors who perform such surgery subject to up to two years in prison.”

While the states may not prosecute a physician for performing a partial birth abortion.  It is my assumption that if a physician performs this procedure they may not go to state prison but they will go to Federal prison because it is against Federal Law. 

The presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife have raised funds and even sent out an “abortion letter” highlights of the letter discussing a procedure that makes up less than ten percent of overall abortions were that women need to have the right to partial birth abortion because, denying them such a right affirms societies right to pay women less, beat women and give them substandard   all around the world.  You know Catholics are against ll forms of abortion but their good works all around the world are legendary.  Barack Obama in this run for president does not even support Universal Health Care for all women, does not support lowering the gas tax for families and women so they can support themselves and their families.  At this point in the fame it has not become clear what the motives are for supporting partial birth abortion so ardently, is it because it’s 1. a procedure Barack Obama has paid for in the past or 2) A procedure that Michelle Obama hs had in the past and needs to keep legal to assuage her guilt and the 10% of the 90% of individuals (abortion ladies as Anne Coulter calls them) that have participated in the procedure or 3) Is it a political tactic to show how loyal they are to what Anne Coulter calls the Church of Liberalism.  I have no idea why Obama supports these people or this cause but the Virginia defieance of the Supreme Court Decision and Federal Law lets me know that a snowball will live in flames before I ever vote for Barack Obama and if things continue as they are Hillary either. 

Finally in my disgust let me tell you what really goes through my mind about liberals.   I think the price of gas is do high because the liberals are plotting to save the environment and want to reduce emissions so they have jacked the price up so   hat only folks with shiny new low emissions cars can drive for leisure.  I watched moveon accuse George Bush of blowing up the world trade center.  However, Barack Obama is open friends with liberals who have admitted to plotting to blowing up buildings.  In essence I believe that the liberals could have engineered this whole horrible economic catastrophe we are going through so they can get elected.
