Have we all heard about the executive orders obama says he will sign first: rescinding a law against public funding of abortions in family planning services abroad. Why should we fund these??? in our present economic state? Why should we try to tell other nations that they should allow abortion through our family planning programs --when most of them don't believe in abortion. Talk about imposing our values on other religious groups!
And I heard he's going to rescind the off-shore drilling order of Bush's --making us perpetually vulnerable to possibility of middle east cutting off our oil --say if al quaeda takes over Saudi Arabia --this is dangerous for us to be dependent on a hostile region for our oil --when we could get our own! Sure we want to develop other sources, but Obama let us believe he would reconsider off-shore drilling--and now I understand he plans to stop it.
Thirdly, he's going to sign permission to do experimentation on "excess frozen fetuses," --on "the snowflakes" --who could be implanted and adopted. We know that adult stem cell research and umbilical cord stem cell research have yielded good results. Why do we have to tamper with tiny lives --who have all the potential to be unique human beings as they are implanted in a woman and start to grow. We don't need to kill human life for our experiments.
Bonhoeffer said you can tell the character of a society by how it treats its children. Yes indeed. And the character of a president, too.
Obama will invigorate the religious right, all the pro-lifers and traditional values folks. They became complacent with a pro-life president --and listened to the critics. never again! Actually, they were just pre-occupied, having many worthwhile things to do at job, home and church --and trusting Bush to do the best he could to resist abortion on demand and fetal experimentation.
We're going to see that he was a good president with lofty and noble goals --he saved babies. And he really saved Iraq from Sadam and AFghanistan from Taliban.
Now, watch Obama undo the good --causing many more to die by abortion and pulling out our troops.
He has also said he would close GITMO. And what is he going to do with the Taliban and others imprisoned there? Send them to jail in AFghanistan to have their heads cut off? Turn them loose in the U.S.? Send them home, free to regroup in AFghanistan?
I don't get left-wing thinking at all. No common sense! No compassion for fetuses or for people in 3rd world conditions whom we've helped so much. No sense about fuel --and what we would do if we were attacked again and didn't have enough gas to support our military because the middle east cut off our supply.
