Baby Scott,

May God bless you and keep you.

May God grant you the love, happiness, and safety in Heaven you could never find in life.

May your spirit bring comfort to the lonely children everywhere.

May you never be forgotten.

With love,

Shut Up and Vote
Opinion © 2005, by Guy L. Evans

October 18, 2005

In case you don’t know by now, President Bush has nominated Harriet Miers to be an associate Justice on the U. S. Supreme Court. The flap and blather has become too much. I can’t stand to listen to talk radio any more.

Let me straighten everyone out on this one. Here’s how it works:

1. When a vacancy opens on the U. S. Supreme Court, the President (in this case, President George W. Bush, the second coming of Ronald Reagan, to listen to some people talk) nominates someone to fill the vacancy.
2. The Senate either approves or disapproves the nomination.

It’s just that simple.

My opinion of the President’s nominee is of no importance to the President, and shouldn’t be of any importance to the Senate, either. Neither should the opinions of any of the talking heads, either for or against the nominee.

Who cares what the talking heads think, anyway? If the talking heads on the right don’t trust President Bush by now, too stinkin’ bad because it’s too late to un-elect him.

Enough yappity yap. Tell the Senate to just shut up and vote already.

Aborting Black Babies
Opinion © 2005, by Guy L. Evans

October 4, 2005

Bill Bennett put forth the proposition that if all black babies were aborted, then the crime rate in America would go down. Bennett has been maliciously attacked for offering this proposition. In fact, Bennett offered the proposition in order to demonstrate that it was both absurd and reprehensible.

Bennett’s attackers accuse him of proposing that some social good can come from aborting the pregnancies of black mothers. However, Bennett’s attackers are hypocrites.

Every argument in favor of abortion is founded on the premise that abortion will result in greater social good. The very people who condemn Bill Bennett for suggesting that abortion can lower the crime rate have, in so many words, supported this very argument.

The argument since the 1960’s has been that poverty causes crime and that unwanted children cause poverty. The argument goes that one way to lower the overall crime rate in America is to encourage more poor women to get abortions.

Advocates of abortion need to face their own hypocrisy.
