Ooooh, I'm mad. I'm not surprised, but I'm mad. I don't blog very much politics-wise, but this is something that has struck a nerve with me. Obama has only been in office for 4 days and he is already doing so much damage. And most of it is behind closed doors. I can only imagine what 4 more years will bring.
Here are excerpts from an article I read this morning. My comments are italicized.
"President Barack Obama on Friday struck down the Bush administration's ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide abortion information — an inflammatory policy that has bounced in and out of law for the past quarter-century. (This makes me SICK! OUR money is going to INTERNATIONAL groups to perform abortions. This is sooo wrong.) The ban has been a political football between Democratic and Republican administrations since GOP President Ronald Reagan first adopted it in 1984. Democrat Bill Clinton ended the ban in 1993, but Republican George W. Bush re-instituted it in 2001 as one of his first acts in office."(Hmmm, seems to me this is good vs. evil over and over again, back and forth.)
"Obama issued the presidential memorandum rescinding the Bush policy without coverage by the media, late Friday afternoon. The abortion measure is a highly emotional one for many people, and the quiet signing was in contrast to the televised coverage of Obama's announcement Wednesday on ethics rules and Thursday's signing of orders on closing the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and banning torture in the questioning of terror suspects."(How interesting that there was no media coverage during the signing and that this wasn't televised! A wolf in sheeps clothing. . .)
I believe Obama is a snake. I can't believe people bought into his lies and his whole "I'm gonna change the world" approach. Obama became the "cool" celebrity and everyone jumped on the bandwagon of change and popularity. Everyone thinks Bush screwed things up(which in fact he didn't, read this). And since Bush was a Republican, we needed to oust the Republicans all together and throw in a Democrat(Yeah, that will fix everything!)
I sadly believe our country is headed in the wrong direction. This is the first of many morally wrong choices Obama will make. If you don't agree, have you not read about the Freedom of Choice act that he has promised to sign into law? Its even worse. Heres the gist of it-
"The Freedom of Choice Act will allow all types of abortions including partial birth abortions, also allowing babies who are born alive due to botched up late term abortions, to be set aside without any medical care or nourishment and left to die (most of these babies have no medical problems and most of the ones that do, have things like cleft palates, club feet, things that are correctable, still they are murdered in the most cruel and inhuman way. They feel everything that is happening to them. There is more mercy for dogs that are put to sleep) This Bill also will make it mandatory for doctors and nurses to perform this murderous act even if they do not want to do so. This act also allows under age teens to have an abortion, even partial birth abortions, without parental consent." There are Catholic hospitals that will actually close down if this act becomes law. Christians everywhere should be absolutely appalled by this.
I am sick. These are definitely signs of the times.
I'm done with my rant now.
