Danielle Bean: I am so disappointed. As much as I dislike The View (and I could never have a television on at that time in my house anyway) I have always found consolation in the show’s inclusion of Elisabeth Hasselbeck as one of its hosts. That was because I had confidence in Hasslebeck’s opposition to legal abortion and support of traditional marriage.
That was silly of me.
It turns out that Hasselbeck actually supports both gay marriage and legal abortion...Read it all
Note: These TV programs and 'stars' are (wittingly or not) midwives of the new 'values' of the new moral Order. Those who gullibly watch are subjecting themselves to the conditioning of these new 'values' birthing a 'new World' with new margins of right and wrong; even the term moral "conservative" has slowly and deliberately shifted to within those new margins, aiming for the now famous American "middle". But where is the "middle" in a killing field?
Recall Hegel's pernicious dialectic: Thesis: abortion is always wrong. Antithesis: Abortion is always a rightful choice. Synthesis: Abortion is not going to go away so let's try to be moderate. Meanwhile the blood flows...
Elizabeth's incoherence, "I am a person that does believe that life begins at conception, but I also don’t believe that the government should tell women what to do with their bodies." Their bodies? What about the life within which "begins at conception"? The government already affirms that murder is a heinous crime, Elizabeth, and forbids it.
What kind of logic excludes the baby you now hold in your arms? Did Mary have an inherent right to do away with our Lord within her womb for those nine months? Your own mother loved you and gave you life, not as a mere 'choice' but out of a deep sense of what is right and good. No government in the world is ever morally justified in allowing the murder of human life, Elizabeth. Think about it.

--->Wikileaks released a CIA report today discussing whether foreign nations will view the U.S. as an "exporter of terrorism". "The report, which highlights attacks by US-based or US-ﬁnanced Jewish, Muslim and Irish-American terrorists, questions how foreign perceptions of the US could change with continued attacks...The memo, titled What If Foreigners See the United States as an 'Exporter of Terrorism'?, concludes that if the US is perceived by other nations as an "exporter of terrorism", those countries may be less willing to co-operate with the US in the detention, transfer and interrogation of future suspects."

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Bottom up!
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc...Read it all
