Awesome: Planned Parenthood Stops Abortions At Seven Arizona Locations After Court Clears Pro-Life Bill…
Thanks to a comprehensive pro-life law a court recently upheld, the Planned Parenthood abortion business will be stopping abortion at seven locations throughout the state, the abortion agency announced today.
As LifeNews.com reported earlier this month, the Arizona Court of Appeals issued a decision upholding a pro-life law that protects the health and safety of women and their unborn children by giving them information they don’t normally receive.
President BHO has recently appointed a Golf Czar and major rule changes in the game of golf will become effective in August 2011. This is only a preview as the complete rule book (expect 2000 pages) is being rewritten as we speak. Here are a few of the changes.
Golfers with handicaps:
– below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
– between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees.
– above 18 will get a $20 check each time they play.
The term “gimmie” will be changed to “entitlement” and will be used as follows:
– handicaps below 10, no entitlements.
– handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts.
– handicaps above 18, if your ball is on green, no need to putt, just pick it up.
These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most importantly, equality in scoring. In addition, a player will be limited to a maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round. Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par. Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again. The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the term “net score” will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps of 18 and above.
This is intended to “re-distribute” the success of winning by making sure that in every competition, the above 18 handicap players will post only “net score” against every other player’s gross score. These new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf.
Golf must be about Fairness. It should have nothing to do with ability, hard work, practice, and responsibility. This is the “Right thing to do.”
WASHINGTON — President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built — in Canada, The Post has learned.
The $1.1 million vehicle, one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government, has been tricked out by the Secret Service with state-of-the-art security features and creature comforts.
It’s a VIP H3-45 model, the company’s top of the line, and is used by major traveling rock bands.
“That’s the more luxurious model,” Christine Garant of Prevost told The Post.
WTF? Why didn’t he have Gummint Motors build it?
The feds bought the two coaches for $2.2 million from Hemphill Brothers Coach, based in Tennessee. It installed custom interior upgrades into the Prevost shell, which accounted for about half the cost.
The contract lists the country of origin as Canada and place of manufacture as “outside U.S. – Trade Agreements,” a possible reference to the North American Free Trade Agreement.
What does the UAW think about this?
…..andafter watching the trailer I fully agree!! Semper Fi……. PM
A few weeks ago, I attended a special critics’ screening of “Warrior.” The movie debuts in theaters on Friday, September 9th–auspiciously, the same weekend as the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks on America.
The studio gave me permission to promote “Warrior” now. ‘Cuz I love it. It’s one of the best movies of the year, if not the best. It’s about heroism, maturity, sacrifice, and redemption. It’s patriotic, uplifting, and full of suspense, thrills, and heart-pounding action.
Not surprisingly, “Warrior” is made by the director of one of my other favorite sports movies, “Miracle” (Read my review). And I can’t wait for you to see it. This is my kind o’ movie!
Every time a new boxing movie comes out, you hear a lot of bloated hype that it’s “the next Rocky,” bandied about. It’s always a fraud, as no boxing movie I’ve seen has yet been the next “Rocky” . . . until this. But this involves MMA (mixed martial arts), which has basically replaced the once popular pure boxing format that’s been dying out. I’ll post my full review on the 9th.
‘Til then, watch the trailer:

Barack Obama is all about redistribution of wealth. He told Joe the Plummer that he thought it was good to redistribute the wealth and he has told us that at some point HE feels that you have made enough money.
This is his way of telling us that HE thinks the government has the right to decide where your money goes and that government can take it from you and give it to someone else.
A flash mob in Maryland is an example of the Obama redistribution scheme. The owner of the store has more than the people who are entering so they have decided that they will take the stuff from the rightful owner and keep it for themselves.
This mob has just bypassed the political process that hampers Obama. And make no mistake, if Obama could find a way to bypass the political process and the law, he would.
Here is the Obama flash mob of wealth redistribution specialists:
Congratulations on the S&P downgrade. For your good work, I volunteer to care for your children for 30 days.
Perhaps you did top my attack on 9/11. But when I see you in hell, I’ll never let you forget you were too big a pussy to pull the trigger on me, and Leon Panetta had to do it for you. But tell Joseph Biden thanks for the tip of just who those bastards were who shot me, because we could have never known which chopper they were on when we shot them down last week.
-Osama bin Laden
I screwed everyone in Hollywood, and everyone who is anyone in Washington. But I’d turn lesbian before I’d have sex with you.
Iran salutes you. You are the mother of all traitors.
– Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
It’s funny, you were my hero 3 years ago. But now Reagan is. Congratulations anyway. I’ve been waiting 52 years for this.
Barack, you had me worried there for a while, dissing me like you did. But you came through, my brother. God damn America!
-Rev. Jeremiah Wright
A man after my own heart. Just keep going – by the time enough Americans catch on they’ll be in chains, anyway.
Comrade, between you and I, we both know you are a mere puppet, enabled by greater men and their instrumentalities. Nonetheless, I compliment you on your success.
I agree with Stalin. If we Nazis had the benefit of your media bias, Lindbergh would have been president.
This tumor in my ass is killing me, literally, so please excuse my subdued thanks. Whatever you do, don’t listen to Michael Moore and go to a Cuban doctor.
Mr. Obama, where were you 2006 when I needed you?
I’m so happy with your commitment to reducing America to ashes.
Barack, you are truly the retarded son I never had. With you being president of the United States, even at my age, I believe I will relive the glory of my days working with the Nazis.
LEADERSHIP IN ACTION!

Obama’s approval rating sinks to all-time low.
And only 8% of unaffiliated voters strongly approve of Obama.
Apparently the “civil liberties” in ACLU don’t apply to babies still living in the womb.
(LifeNews) — The ACLU has filed a lawsuit seeking to make Kansas residents fund abortions under the Obamacare law that has the government running a nationwide health insurance plan that includes abortion funding and rationing concerns.
The state legislature approved, and pro-life Gov. Sam Brownback signed, a law that makes it so no state or federally administered health-insurance exchange in Kansas that is established under Obamacare can fund abortions at taxpayer expense. That has Kansas following several other states in exercising their right to opt out of abortion funding in the Obamacare law, which has numerous loopholes allowing it.
But the American Civil Liberties Union has sued and is upset that women seeking abortions would have to purchase a separate rider for their insurance policy that would cover abortions, so enrollees are not forced to pay for them.
“This law is part of a nationwide trend to take away insurance coverage for a legal medical procedure that is an important part of basic health care for women,” Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, said in a statement. “Many things can happen in a pregnancy that are beyond a woman’s control, so having insurance coverage for abortion ensures that every woman can get the health care she may need.”
When the law was approved, state legislators said it was critically needed.
“This bill includes very crucial pro-life language,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lance Kinzer, an Olathe Republican, in a AP report. “I would view this as an important conscience protection for Kansas business owners.”
A Catholic bishop in North Dakota recently gave an interview in which he gave some of the strongest comments yet from a Catholic Church leader on the thorny questions of what to do about Catholic politicians who support abortion.
Bishop Samuel Aquila makes it crystal clear he believes there is a process by which Catholic officials should confront pro-abortion politicians and that they should be “expelled” from the Church if they don’t back down from supporting abortion.
Responding to the question, “How should the Church respond to Catholic politicians who support legalized abortion,” Bishop Aquila says: “Their particular bishops can use the process of correction that is given to us in sacred Scripture, especially in Matthew’s Gospel. Our Lord tells us to speak to the person, and then take two or three others with us if he does not change.”
“If he still does not change, the Church can speak to him, which is done through the bishop. [The bishop] exercises the authority of Christ. Christ then says that if that person is still obstinate and will not change, treat them as a tax collector or Gentile. Expel him,” Bishop Aquila adds.
“Catholics are called to defend human life, particularly that of the unborn. The Church’s teaching is clear. If we don’t challenge public officials who reject this teaching, we leave them in their sins and confuse the faithful,” the bishop said.

A group of more than 45 energy, investment and IT firms, as well as a number of green NGOs, have joined forces this week to call on U.S. President Barack Obama to explicitly support the roll out of advanced smart meter technologies for every household and business in the U.S.
In an open letter to the president orchestrated by the Climate Group and backed by a host of big name technology and energy firms, such as Google, AT &T, Intel, GE, HP and Verizon, the coalition asks the administration to “adopt the goal of giving every household and business access to timely, useful and actionable information on their energy use.”
