Not Impossible at All

I am developing the biggest crush on Martin Landeau as Rollin Hand.

I ask you – is that so wrong?

Should You Choose to Accept It.

Having a lot of free time on my hands, I am watching the original Mission: Impossible series.

It’s classic. And brilliant. Classically brilliant. And brilliantly classic.

I think I’ll go watch another episode now . . .

Proudly a Former Chicagoan

At least for a moment . . .

Cardinal Francis George (and the other Catholic bishops) have stated that if Obama passes FOCA, as he has threatened, then Catholic hospitals will be forced to shut down. If I’m reading the reports correctly, that means that approximately one-third of the hospitals in the United States would close their doors.

“This is not a matter of political compromise or a matter of finding some way of common ground,” said Bishop Daniel Conlon of Steubenville, Ohio. “It’s a matter of absolutes.”

Good for them. I’m sorry for the people that would lose their jobs, but for abortion-opposed Catholics, they wouldn’t be able to work in the health care industry anyway after such an eventuality. For the rest – well – I’m sure there will be enough abortion-advocating institutions that will allow them to kill as many babies as they need in order to make themselves feel all women-empowered. (Er, warning: the linked video is pretty grotesque.)

And – as long as we’re on the subject – can someone explain to me how the EEOC justifies opposing protections for health care providers who won’t provide abortions on religious or moral grounds?

The EEOC says that “the proposal would overturn 40 years of civil rights law prohibiting job discrimination based on religion,” which is the most backwards bit of nonsense ever issued from their increasing irrelevance.

At least Obama is quite frank about the fact that he would force people opposed to abortion to both fund them and perform them. But I expect no better from him.

And suddenly I revert to shame at being a former Chicagoan . . .

Media Mediocracy

How Obama Got Elected. Incredible.

In response to typical ill-informed backlash, Zogby had to issue a statement to explain what a “poll” is.
