It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Since when did Hitler take over New Zealand?

A civilized nation wouldn't use prenatal tests to exterminate undesirable babies, would it? It depends on your definition of civilized.

New Zealand appears to be another country where Sarah Palin couldn't get elected president.

Complaint to be lodged with the International Criminal Court

The Killing of Unborn Children with Down syndrome - A Crime Against Humanity: Complaint to be lodged with the International Criminal Court

Right to Life applauds the producer of TV3's 60 Minutes programme for providing a service to our community by producing an excellent investigative documentary on the antenatal national screening programme for Down syndrome. The national screening programme targets unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome, with around 75% of them being killed.

It is the opinion of this Society that the government is guilty of crimes against humanity under Articles 6 and 7 of the [http://www.icc-cpi.int/NR/rdonlyres/0D8024D3-87EA-4E6A-8A27-05B987C38689/0/ RomeStatuteEng.pdf] Treaty of Rome, to which New Zealand is signatory to. Article 7 prohibits the persecution of any identifiable group of people within the civilian population. Article 6 prohibits the prevention of births within that group. People with Down syndrome are clearly protected under the Treaty of Rome as an identifiable group of people, as their genetic identity is the sole basis of genetic screening.

We request that the government immediately cease targeting unborn children with Down syndrome for selective abortion. If this is not forthcoming, Right to Life New Zealand together with a number of families who have a member with Down syndrome will lay a formal complaint with the International Criminal Court in The Hague against the government of New Zealand for crimes against humanity and genocide, by imposing measures to prevent births of children with Down syndrome.

People with Down syndrome are valued members of their families and their communities, contributing to society in a variety of ways. Women who have an unborn child diagnosed with Down syndrome, or any other disability, need and deserve the support and compassion of the community to accept their child as a valued and loved member of the family and community.

The government should promote a culture of life by ensuring that families who have unborn children with Down syndrome receive compassion and are given all the encouragement and support needed to bring their child to birth. After the birth of their child they should be provided with the services necessary to assist them in providing for the special needs of their child.

Additional supporting information

The screening programme encourages discrimination against unborn children diagnosed as having Down syndrome. The programme is also in contravention of the Government's own Disability Strategy, which seeks to uphold the right of those with a disability to be welcomed in society.

The screening programme was introduced by the Ministry of Health following advice from the Ministry's National Screening Unit [NSU] without public consultation.

Cabinet papers obtained under the Official Information Act state that the outcomes of the programme will be a reduction in the number of births of people with Down syndrome, with around 90% of unborn children diagnosed with the condition being aborted.

NSU documents state that the programme will be cost beneficial for the population and the health system on " the premise that the economic costs of screening outweigh the high costs associated with the long term care needs of an individual with Down syndrome."

The programme is funded by the state and targets all pregnant women in New Zealand in their first trimester on the basis of providing information to women to make decisions about their pregnancies, including abortion. People with disabilities are the only group of people in New Zealand targeted for selective abortion. Down syndrome, and other conditions that are targeted, are genetic conditions that have no cure. The basis of first trimester screening is to enable woman to have an abortion within the 20 week timeframe if an abnormality is detected. Other reasons for prenatal diagnosis, such as parent education, hospital selection and delivery management, do not require testing during the first trimester and can be safely left until the later stages of pregnancy.

A message from Congressthingee Weiner the Weiner and his weiner.

My Fellow Onanists.
Apparently, I'm now too big a pervert for my own Party. Well, Nancy Pelosi can choke on this right here because I'm not resigning. By the way, do any of you have Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's number? She's got a real pretty mouth...anyway...

I'm going to "rehab" for awhile in a last desperate attempt to hold onto power. I know what you're thinking - why don't I just forget politics and concentrate on getting photos of my genitalia into the hands of as many babes as possible and then masturbating nonstop?

Frankly, that's just not practical. It seems chicks don't dig unemployed nobodies who text photos of their junk. I know! Discrimination, right? By the way, that's another reason I have to stay in Congress - to protect the oppressed little guy. Plus 174 Gs a year is nothing to sneeze at.

I'm standing on principle here, people. So what if I like to jerk it while thinking about women I don't even know? Isn't that the American Dream? Isn't that the Playboy Philosophy? Heck, I never raped anybody like Bill Clinton did. I never had a homo prostitute selling himself from my rumpus room like Barney Chokesondick. There's obviously no way I could have fathered a bastard child like that ambulance chasing pussy John Edwards. And I'm the bad guy?

Please just leave me alone and I promise to continue voting communist and I will make sure the Internet remains free and unencumbered.

Now here's a word from my wiener, Tiny Tony:


That's not funny, that's just sick.

Every once in a while the facade slips and Bolshevik The Clown ["The Smelliest Clown Around!"] exposes his blood-soaked fangs and the truth. Yesterday he joked about how there really were never any "shovel ready" projects to be funded by his Crippling Debt Enhancement Law.

Don't worry, you commies, AmericaLast kool-aid drinkers like the besotted Ezra Klein will get him reelected.


Obama and Shovel Ready Projects - Ezra Klein, Washington's other newspaper

Perhaps I should've written this post before interviewing Jared Bernstein, the vice president's chief economist, on the same subject. But if you read that interview closely, you'll see a White House that doesn't exactly know what to do with the president's comments. The administration doesn't think the stimulus failed. At the end of the day, the law met its spending targets. As promised, it dispensed with 70 percent of the funds within two years. Most of the remaining money will pay out when projects that are underway reach completion. Today, the White House released a video in which Austan Goolsbee, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, argues that the intervention saved the job market (though by looking only at private-sector jobs, he stacks the deck, as the public sector is where recent job losses have been concentrated).

So why did the president tell Peter Baker -- and before him, David Brooks -- that there are no "shovel-ready programs"? Those were three of the most important words used to sell the program -- and the president's decision to walk them back is giving plenty of ammunition to his enemies.

Why it's best not to take your boyhood idols into middle age with you.

I finally got around to listening to last year's solo album by the former front man for The Jam and The Style Council. I should have trusted my instincts.

Paul Weller/Wake Up the Nation

I know The Jam and the energy necessary to write those songs are long gone. The Style Council had their moments too, though they were few and far between. At least there was something cool and different there at times.

Wake Up The Nation is just boring and that is the most damning complaint there is, kiddies. If you are unfamiliar with The Jam, you might think Mr. Weller is a serviceable AOR artist from England. Sorry, but that is simply not good enough for me.

No, I don't expect anyone to remain locked in the early 1980's. But artists should not expect their fans to celebrate getting old and boring with them.

I'm going to fire up the turntable, spin All Mod Cons a few times, and have a couple of beers.

About Me

My photo
First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
