These are my links for July 8th through July 9th:

  • Ann Coulter vs. Bill Kristol: Beginnings of a Conservative Schism? – Ann Coulter backs Steele’s argument that Obama has taken control of the war in Afghanistan and suggests that Republicans shouldn’t always be pro-war. Bill Kristol believes that Republicans should still support the war in Afghanistan. I think I tend to agree more with Coulter– how about you?
  • CNSNews.com – Dems Re-Introduce Bill to Regulate Pregnancy Resource Centers’ Allegedly Deceptive Advertising – Planned Parenthood is pushing for a bill that would make it harder for alternatives to advertise stating things like: “Family planning clinics, like your local Planned Parenthood health center, have specially trained staff who can talk with you about all of your options,” the Web site says on its abortion portion of its Web site. “But beware of so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers.’ These are fake clinics run by people who are anti-abortion. They often don’t give women all their options. They have a history of scaring women into not having abortions. Absolutely no one should pressure you or trick you into making a decision you’re not comfortable with.” The sick part is that it’s PP that’s coercive. Since they make more money on abortions what’s their incentive to advise women to take any other option?
  • Federal Judge Rules Part Of DOMA Unconstitutional | TPM LiveWire – Seems to me this is more a moral judgment rather than going simply by the rule of law: “And where, as here, ‘there is no reason to believe that the disadvantaged class is different, in relevant respects’ from a similarly situated class, this court may conclude that it is only irrational prejudice that motivates the challenged classification.” What makes this judge the rightful arbiter on what is relevant or rational? The fact that the federal government wants to reward heterosexual coupling is extremely relevant to the discussion.
  • The U.S. pledge of allegiance was written by a … – Is “the socialist trajectory of the U.S. is not due to Barack Obama but to Francis Bellamy”? The original author of the pledge of allegiance in the US was a Christian Socialist. He was also once the pastor of the church I attended growing up (not at the time I was there.
