Women’s Health — Planned Parenthood

The chance of getting breast cancer in the overall US population is 12.5% over the course of a woman’s lifetime.  Whether abortion increases the risk of breast cancer is something that is medically disputed. However the impact of abortion on cervical cancer is less so.  Each year 7.5 women per 100,000 will contract cervical cancer.  Cervical-Cancer

Among women who have had one abortion that risk is 2.3 times higher than the risk in the general population.   For those women 17.25 out of every 100,000 will get cervical cancer. Based on the fact that Planned Parenthood performed 300,000 abortions last year 45 women more per year will contract cervical cancer.  Roughly a quarter of those women will not survive.  Some studies suggest an 5 fold increase of cervical cancer among post abortive women which would mean an extra 90 cases per year.  Roughly 20 of those cases will be fatal.

Do you think this information is given to Planned Parenthood’s often young and vulnerable clients?    Beyond the immediate medical risks associated with abortion there are a host of long term life risks.  I would think that this information should be widely distributed and given to clients seeking abortion services.  Even if you believe it is a women’s right to chose, they need to know what they are choosing.  It may well not be what they think.

For many the immediate convenience of not having to try and raise a child outweighs the effort to carry to term and either attempt to raise the child or have it adopted.  The long term consequences to the physical and mental health of the client have long been ignored in this space.   For many those consequences are far worse than having a child that they ultimately love and who loves them.  For some the consequence is an early grave.  There is tremendous research to support this.

For me I would do everything in my power to make abortion unnecessary and undesirable. Learn more at Sav-a-Life Shelby.  Or sponsor me for the walk dedicated to changing women’s minds and helping them succeed in life.

Impact Your World

One of the arguments put forward to justify the abortion mills that are still very much a part of modern day Americana is that these facilities provide safe, easy access to abortion.  This was not true for Lakisha Wilson.  Her second trimester abortion procedure resulted in her death.  From the history of the Gosnell Clinic in Philadelphia to this case the botched abortion, the maiming and death of young women continues to this day.

So what can you do to stop this carnage?  Yes, amazing enough you can help! I am sponsoring a team for the walk for zero for Shelby   Sav-A-Life.  We are striving for zero abortions in Shelby county by 2020.   If you will pledge for the team and come out an walk at Valleydale Church on April 9th you can have a huge impact on reducing the death and damage done by abortions in Alabama.   You don’t have to walk, but there are raffle prizes if you do.  The pledge will be huge.

Please contact me  at 205-585-9244 or message me to make a pledge.  It is the most important thing you can do to help young women choose life and your contribution will preserve the life of both mothers and babies.

 

True Christians Massacred

Two stories about life in Saudi Arabia, one about life there and one specifically about Christians in Saudi Arabia tell a story about our government’s attitude toward Christians. As Obamacare tears into Christians’ right to maintain their beliefs or as the NFL talks about banning Atlanta from hosting the Super Bowl because Atlanta wants to let vendors choose not to support activities where they have religious objections.

It becomes clear that being a believer in Christ is no longer a easy choice.  No matter were in world you are, believing in Christ has a potential cost, up to and including an ultimate cost.  From a earthly standpoint, why would anyone subject themselves to the bigotry against those that actively profess a belief in Christ?   The truth of the resurrection and belief in Christ provides an eternal reward.  Believers that die live forever.

If Christ did not return from the dead and ascend to the Father, all of us Christians are idiots and our beliefs false.  If he did, no price is too great to pay in this world for the hope of Christ.

A Government That Kills Its Own Citizens – America Lives Matter

A government that purposefully releases 10,000s, 5000 alone in Arizona,  of criminals back onto the streets without their being prosecuted does not deserve to remain in power.  Hundreds of American citizens have been killed as a result of this release.  Still, Obama remains in power and is still attempting to keep illegal aliens from being deported or incarcerated.  When it becomes your spouse or child that is killed, will you still support this government.

According to the state department’s own figures, worldwide terrorism is up.  This has resulted in more Americans being killed. This is a direct result of our foreign policy.

Obamacare, through lack of access and the destruction of coverage that was working has killed a number of Americans.

What about veteran deaths from VA mismanagement?

How about an new mantra, “American Lives Matter”.  The media CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC should be yelling this from the rooftop.   As supporters, protectors, and parrots of the Obama line they are equally responsible for these deaths.  American lives do matter, so why is our government so insensitive to preserving those lives.  Liberal policy, whether socialist or communist devalues life as less important than policy.  We see the results in the death of American.

American lives do matter.  If we value them, we will all prosper more and our current regime would not be in power.

Obamacare – Deathcare

Tens of thousands lost their doctors.  Millions of American lost their insurance. Millions more now pay substantially more out of their own pockets for health insurance for substantially less benefit.  Yet, Obama this week claimed that Obamacare Works.  The only measure that indicates that this program works is that some insurance companies are making a lot more profit than they were before this program was enacted.  The program does not work, has never worked and costs lives, and livelihoods.

Congress has the numbers and the power to abolish this program and override a veto as it remains so unpopular that even senate democrats will vote to abolish it, if they are presented with the bill as a campaign issue.  The insurance companies that are making more lobby to keep Obamacare, often more out of fear than true desire.   ABC, NBC, CBS, and MSNBC all continue to support it because it fits their agenda and provides ad dollars from the insurance companies.  In fact, these outlets are as responsible for this law remaining in effect as is Congress.

Obamacare won’t pay for a head transplant, (we can understand why this is experimental)  but cutting out the best cancer drugs and doctors has already caused the loss of life.  Every time one of these stories is ignored by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or FOX News these organizations along with Congress are responsible for murder.   Most of the media ignores the truth and continues to put out false information about these programs.

Whether they do so because they improve their profits, or because of ideology, or because of political pressure does not matter.  They are, by law, supposed to foster the public good.  This is one area among many where they have not only fostered public harm, but continue to do so.  As Obama Praises Obamacare this week, none of them challenged him, or publically excoriated a program that continues to harm Americans by the millions.  By that standard their license to be on the airwaves should be revoked.

Congress needs to cancel this program lock stock and barrel.  Pay for play in this area continues to cost American lives and make millions of Americans poorer and at greater health risk than ever before.  It is almost impossible to boycott every news organization but every Congressman that does not successfully repeal this law needs to be voted out. Period.  Every candidate that does not actively work toward its repeal needs to be not elected.  It is time to take back our lives in this area.

Re-education Centers — Liberal Education In America

Most of our leaders in the media and in government are products of a flawed educational system, one that has traded the harsh truths of reality for utopian fantasy.  Liberal Arts education, as is promoted by most State colleges and even more intensely by elitist Ivy League schools, has traded free thinking for propaganda.  The world of theory and wishful thinking has replaced a world of fact.

I listened today as when one recent graduate was asked how they would stop the beheadings.  Their answer started with, “We need to get the Muslim community to come  together and….”

That approach is not much different than that of Marie Harf at the State Department telling us we need to get the radicals jobs so that we can reach down and change the root causes of terrorism.   Seriously,  their religion, their ideology tells them to kill infidels. (That is everyone who does not believe as they do.)  It’s not about jobs, its about their belief in how to get to heaven.  (Saying that no true religion is violent is fantasy.  1500 years ago the Mayan’s played soccer with the heads of their enemies to appease their Gods.)  Just because you don’t like how something is conducted does not make that thing something else.    That is what I mean about liberal fantasy.  They redefine things based on what they want not based on what is.

This liberal educational process has created generations of leaders ill prepared to handle the challenges we face.   Below are several tenets of this education where propaganda and wishful thinking is taught and encouraged rather than facts.   Each will be listed and explored in greater depth as we progress.

1.) The necessity for a strong military to protect our freedom and our lives is denigrated.

2.)  That the free market promotes inequity and poverty while socialism and communism produce more prosperous societies.

3.) Evolution is taught as the only way humanity could have developed.  Believing in a creator is actively discouraged.

4.)  Unrestrained sexual freedom and unlimited abortion are promoted as the hallmarks of modern enlightenment.

5.)  Those with different beliefs are penalized with poorer grades, made fun of and ostracized by their professors.

6.)  Courses are taught from non historical perspectives to reframe history to support current social agenda’s.

Please hang with me as we explore these points.  This approach to education has had a tremendous impact on the way our current leadership approaches managing government and the affairs that affect our lives.

Let’s start with the military.  Throughout a number of courses at liberal arts colleges the student is introduced to the concept of the military industrial complex.  All that industry, invention, and scientific development is treated as a drain on society.  If only those resources could go for food or social work then we would be so much better off.  Students are told that the evil corporations are taking from us and from the poor in order to create better and better weapons.   They are told that these weapons and the military itself are not needed.

The fact that the military protected us in WWII, freed Kuwait from Sadaam, and has kept the now resurgent Soviet Union out of the main part of Europe is not mentioned.   It is the ability to defend  land and territory that protects us.  There will always be those in the world that want to take from others or cause harm to others.  Without a strong military those people will do just that.  There has never been a case where one side lays down their arms and their enemies do not attack.  It is the way of human nature.  It is what makes unilateral disarmament a formula for disaster.  Still many students are taught that this is a good thing.    We see the result of our unilateral reduction in arms.  The level of chaos in the world has increased 100 fold.  Here reality clearly shows the academic theory to be nothing more than fantasy and wishful thinking.

As to economics.  The facts again outweigh the theory.   Societies with greater economic freedom and lower tax rates have a far greater average standard of living than those with significant socialist and communist elements.  Sure there is a disparity between the wealthiest and the poorest, but if the poorest are doing better than 90% of those in the rest of the world, then those poor are doing pretty well.  In the United States, the poor by and large all eat well and have TVs, cell phones, and cars.  Compare this to the poor in South America or Africa where they lack roads, running water and electricity in many places.  Capitalism built the world that has this high level of prosperity.  Over the past 6 years that prosperity has started to diminish in direct relation to the amount of social reform put into place.  A greater number of American are living pay check to pay check because of the socialist policies.

Here in economics, the facts belie the theory.  Students are not taught the truth, but what professors wish to be true.   As they grow up and become leaders they fail to understand how to create wealth and prosperity.  These same students are unprepared for both the marketplace and for leadership.

A student who says openly that they believe that God created human kind is treated as a leper by his or her professors.  Evolution, which to this day has failed to show one thing actually turning into another is taught as gospel.  Nevertheless,  neither evolution nor the big bang answers the question as to why we exist at all.   Here again, reality,  the fact that there is existence is ignored in the pursuit of liberal arts truth.

Perhaps one of the most insidious pairs of thought have to do with sexual freedom.  Students are encouraged not to bond but to have ‘free sex’.  The idea of marriage is discouraged.   Nevertheless, countless psychological studies have shown that such an approach diminishes self esteem and self worth.  When pregnancies occur these same students are told that the fetus is only a mass of tissue.  The result is countless of individuals that fear they have murdered their children and know in their hearts this is the case.   The value of life is diminished and the harm done, all in the name of enlightenment and pleasure.    Had these same promoters examined the studies of psychological health and the benefit of family, they would teach these students differently.

Again, what is taught and promoted has nothing to do with ‘good’ as has been proven by time and studies, only with desire. It is the world these teachers desire, not the world that is best.

The power of the grade and its future impact on students is used to promote the views above to the exclusion of fact and thought.  Students that write a positive piece of communism are rewarded with higher grades.  Those that promote capitalism or who suggest that the protestant church was a force for good are ostracized and given D’s and F’s.      Instead of rewarding scholarship these schools are rewarding ideology.  A belief in capitalism promoted by a scholarly work is excoriated while support of Keynesian economics is lauded as brilliant, even without facts to back it up.    Instead of being a bastion of free thought and speech, Universities have become the re-education centers of modern America.

Tenure was provided to professors so they could speak their minds without being fired.  Now those same professors use that system to prevent free thought and ideas.  They forbid those who have different ideas from getting tenure and encourage students to be intolerant of others views.  That is why politically correct speech has become the norm. The crime is offending, even if it is truth that is spoken.  It is as if 1980 China lives well on campus.  There is not even enough juice for a Tiananmen square type protest.

This is by no means a new phenomenon, but is one that has progressed for the last 50 years.    In the 1970’s I had a medieval history course which among other things examined the role of Christianity in the development of Western society.  As the discussion covered the Council of Nicaea and a number of other venues where much  of early Christianity worked itself out with the politics of the time. The professor would make point after point to say how history invalidated Christian beliefs.    Much of that information was not even within the scope of the class.     Looking back, it is clear that the information he presented was to a large extent contrived to discourage Christian beliefs.

The real harm that our institutions of modern liberal arts are causing are from the contrived and often one sided interpretation of curricula.  Instead of being a world filled with the exploration of knowledge our universities have become re-education centers aimed at producing only one type of thought.    As our society declines, government gets bigger, and poverty increases, we can lay that blame squarely on the academic institutions that have traded teaching theory and fantasy for teaching fact.   Until that changes the United States will continue to be a nation in decline.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Win A War

George Bush the elder knew how to fight a war.  He gave Saddam a deadline and while waiting for the deadline he prepared.  Soon after the deadline he started the bombing campaign.  It was 30 days of intense bombing that removed almost every Iraqi command and control facility and fully demoralized the Iraqi army.  Then in a 3 day blitz he defeated Saddam’s forces with almost no loss of American life.  Kuwait was again free.

Obama’s approach is to invest as few of our own people as possible and to only commit us part way.   When Bush the younger did not commit sufficient forces we lost far more lives and were losing the second Iraq war.    That is why the surge changed the balance.  It is like anything in life, partial commitment means failure.    Obama is the king of partial commitment.    Unfortunately, when its the commander- in-chief partial commitment means dead Americans.

Whether fighting ISIS now or not is a good idea, fighting them with no commitment is definitely a bad idea.  Once again the President shows his disdain for America, its soldiers, and its way of life.  If he would just seal the borders, that would do more to protect us that anything he is doing abroad.
