I think that Irony has moved a bit. It's funny how a post I pulled out of the distant past just yesterday touches so neatly on the affairs of today. This is almost a Gunpowder Milkshake moment at the Diner. The wheels are well and truly coming off and because I have no dogs in the fight, skin in the game, I find them amusing.
The omnipotent left just woke up to a fact I've been laughing about for about 40 years.
ROE V WADE is not actually a law. It was a court decree but nobody in the last 40 years thought about what overturning a court decision absent a law would do. OH NOW they are scrambling in election season to put those things on the books and make a right to "privacy" lawful and God damn those who won't bow and praise the left. Poor bastards. They thought they could continue as they have gone on and just push this behind them. We will see.
Oh yeah, I'm wrong. Every single time a name for the supreme court came up in the last 40 years the wingers came out of the wings in a perfect frenzy of hatred. You notice of course that what they mostly failed to do was to try to legislate. What they hated was what they got.
I have stood there in the Jefferson Memorial in the morning and the evening and looked up and decided as a young man, a serving officer, a man with a lifetime behind him to go along with the words written there. They were good words. They are carved in stone all around the dome. Written in stone.
"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
As we read earlier, FAITH is what guides us. The absence of faith is also a guide but to a lesser place and a poorer realm.
Those on the left believe in stupid transient things. The rest of us take a note from the bible from time to time but almost all of us believe in the 10 commands from on high. One of the things historians have noted is that one really cannot build a civilization without them.
