ABORTION: Russian mass murderer Joseph Stalin is crediting with saying, “A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.” The World Health Organization tells us that every minute, 139 babies in the world die of abortion. That adds up to 73.3 million unborn human beings who are murdered every single year. But these deaths are not a statistic. They are a crime against humanity.

CATHOLIC: CLICK [22:41] about the Vatican going haywire. The transcript is at the LifeSiteNews link below.

CLIMATE: Best comment – “The guy whose son smoked Parmesan cheese hoping it was crack wants to lecture us about eating a hamburger.” – catturd

Also this – “The Spirit clearly says that in later times … hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron [will] forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods.” 1 Timothy 1-3

E PLURIBUS UNUM: Equity demands that every single special interest group in the United States get fair and equal time on the flag poles of our embassies.

We can divide up the number of days by how many members each group has. For example, since 23% of Americans are Catholic, then the Vatican flag should fly on the same pole as the U.S. flag for 23% of the days.

FAUXTUS: Socialism be comin’ fast.

MONTANA: On Friday, Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a bill into law that prohibits state and local law enforcement in Montana from enforcing unconstitutional federal bans on firearms, ammunition and magazines.

Also on Friday, Arkansas’ Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoed similar legislation saying, “I will continue to push back against federal overreach and regulation, but criminalizing cooperation with the federal government is not the solution.”

Several states passed nullification laws under then-President Barack Obama, but judges have found them unconstitutional. One might wonder if this doesn’t also apply to cities and states that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agents, but … shut up, you racist!

OKLAHOMA: On Wednesday, Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law protecting drivers who injure or kill demonstrators will attempting to escape a riot. In addition to increasing penalties for individuals who intentionally block roadways.

We are sending a message today in Oklahoma that rioters who threaten law abiding citizens’ safety will not be tolerated. I remain unequivocally committed to protecting every Oklahoman’s First Amendment right to peacefully protest as well as their right to feel safe in their community,” Stitt said.

PORTLAND: CLICK [1:04] declare that it’s time to end the rioting that’s been going on for ELEVEN MONTHS.

RUMORS OF WAR: In recent weeks, we’ve seen the ChiComs invade the South China Sea and rattle their sabers at tiny Taiwan. We’ve seen Russia amass 100,000 troops on its border with Ukraine. And now … Iran has begun enriching uranium to close to weapons-grade levels and Israel and Syria have exchanged missiles.

SIGN WAR: This is really funny! One store challenged the place across the street to a sign war. Then, the whole town got in on it. CLICK the link. 🙂

TUCKER: “When I was a kid, my dad worked in print in the newspaper and then in television. He had a sound guy, a cameraman, a producer. They’d come over to our house a lot. And I remember thinking, ‘These are truly open-minded, courageous guys.’ They took no bullshit from anybody. They were also skeptical. They were hilarious. They acted like they lived in a free country. They acted like they had the right to demand answers from above. They were fearless in the best way, not the kind of fake, posing way but in a sincere way.

Now, we just have those who are small-minded, status-obsessed, insecure, not that bright, just not impressive who are pretending to ask questions. It just makes me sick. I really hate them.They want no part of it. Maybe everyone in journalism is from the same social class. It doesn’t matter if they are black, Hispanic, gay, or straight. They might look different, but they are all from the same world.

That’s a huge problem. We are supposed to be representing the whole country. I mean, there’s probably a lot of reasons for it, but they are such cowards.

“As soon as someone asks a tough question, it’s these cowards who say, ‘Bam! Take his job away, crush him, ruin his life.’

“How can someone doing this ask their wife to respect them? How can they ask their kids to respect them? How can you say you are a man anymore? They are cringing animals who are not worthy of respect.”

UNDERGROUND CHURCH: Pastor James Coates, the Canadian pastor who has done jail time for holding services. The government even built a fence around GraceLife Church to keep members from meeting in their own building. None of it has stopped them from doing what they believe is God’s will – i.e., meeting for worship as a full community. Pastor Coates says, “They can take our facility, but we’ll just find another one.”

GRAMMY NOTES: Back in grad school, I belonged to a prayer group that had a seemingly absurd number of physicists in it. I mean … I was the only one in Comm Arts, Dearest was the only one in Architecture, etc. But there were like five members who were in Physics at the graduate and post-graduate levels.

I asked about it at a meeting once and the answer I got was this: “When people in the other sciences don’t understand something, they ignore it, figuring the physicists know the answer. But we are the physicists and we know we don’t know the answers.”
