Guns vs homicides

Guns vs homicides

President Obama gave something of an apology in November for his promise that if you liked your health care plan or doctor, you could keep them, period. Turns out what he meant was that if he liked them, you could keep them. And he turned out to be very difficult to please.

But he’s not the only one who was going around making that promise.

“More guns, more violence”, so goes the mantra that, apparently, many liberal politicians and their voters keep chanting. However, there were some maps made by the United Nations office on Drugs and Crime that tend to set this mantra on its ear.

Now that same-sex marriage has been accepted by some states, it’s no longer a draw for the evening news, so ABC News in America has decided to move on to the next big thing; open marriage. This is what passes for “news” in the 21st century; one-sided advocacy journalism.

I had a listener comment on one of the previous episodes, and I wanted to respond to his comment, especially the part where his criticism was absolutely on target. I said “I wasn’t guessing” when I contended that Ban Ki Moon hadn’t denounced anti-Christian or anti-Jewish speech like he did with recent anti-Islamic speech, but then I didn’t provide any examples. Listen as your humbled host is properly corrected.

But a more accurate statement isn’t really that much different. I tried to find similar examples, but Google News couldn’t find them. If you can, let me know, but for now it seems to me that, yes, threatening life and property is the way to get the UN’s attention.

Can you be fairly represented by someone who doesn’t look like you, or makes more money than you, or isn’t your same age? In a new podcast DecodeDC, Andrea Seabrook (in an otherwise fascinating podcast episode) seems to make the case that, no, you can’t. Let’s look at history to test that theory.

Romney releases his tax information, proving himself “innocent” of paying $0 in taxes some years. So instead of wondering now who Harry Reid’s anonymous source was and why they were so wrong, the Left asks more information from … Romney! It’s like the Birthers who just couldn’t accept a birth certificate from Obama. Thing is, we need a catch name for these tax-insane Democrats. Post your ideas in the comments.

UN Secretary General George Orwell Ban Ki Moon says that freedom of expression should be protected…except when it shouldn’t be, like when certain groups get offended. (Any guesses one what group he’s currently trying to make exceptions for?)

Just two topics this time around. I got a little wordy.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is another international treaty to come out of that august body that, while it is ostensibly one with good intentions, allows the UN to override national sovereignty. Want to homeschool your disabled child? A UN committee might decide otherwise.

In 2004, President of the Human Right Campaign Cheryl Jacques was asked why her groups advocacy for same-sex marriage would not lead to polygamy. Her well-considered answer was, “I don’t approve of that.” Well, what she doesn’t approve of has happened, and the liberal paper The Guardian is asking about the next stop down the slippery slope; why not marriage of 3, or 4, or 17? Slippery slope arguments are worthless, except when they aren’t.
