Separation of scouts and state?

Today's reason why liberals suck comes from the ACLU:

ACLU Threat Drives Scouts Out Of Schools

The ACLU is claiming that public sponsorship of scout troops amounts to "religous discrimination" because their pledge contains the word "God" and homosexuals are not allowed to be troop leaders. Not only is this claim ridiculous, it makes it pretty clear where the ACLU stands on the phrase "Under God" being in the Plege of Allegiance. Today's reason why liberals suck: they're threatening law suits against the Boy Scouts, an organization that has provided an educational and character-building experience for millions of young boys.

It's my embryo, it's my choice!

Today's reason why liberal suck comes to us from Charles Krauthammer:

Thou Shalt Not Create

"Human embryos are to be created for the purpose of producing babies, not for commerce and not to be dismembered for study or spare parts. "

Unfortunately, many liberals would disagree. There is a fundamental moral line between using discarded human embryos for research and creating a human embryo specifically to destroy it and use it for spare parts. Today's reason why liberals suck: this distinction, like many moral distinctions, is one that many liberals just don't get.

But their furniture is so reasonably priced!

Today's reason why liberals suck comes to us from Scandinavia, liberal wonderland extrodinare:
Ikea criticized for male-only furniture instruction guides

Let's set aside for a moment the astounding fact that CNN is actually taking this story seriously. The Prime Minister of Norway ACTUALLY thinks that this is a legitimate problem? Note to women: the battle of the sexes is over! You've won! You mature faster then men, you're going to college at a higher rate than men, you're less likely to kill yourself at a young age by doing something incredibly stupid. . . if the think you're most worried about is not being equally represented in an IKEA furniture assembly manual, then things are pretty darn good.

Today's reason why liberals suck: they bitch about things like IKEA furniture manuals when there are far, far more important issues out there to be addressed.

We're not captured, we're just confused

Today's reason why liberals suck comes to us from Star Parker, a dynamic speaker and a great columnist as well:

Social security, as it is right now, will collapse unless it is reformed. It must be fixed--the only question is how to fix it. So why not allow working-class families to invest some of their retirement savings, the way middle-class and upper-class families already do?

Today's reason why liberals suck: groups like the NAACP that blindly follow the Democratic party line without considering what's best for their actual constituency.

Some People Push Buttons For Publicity

Today's reason why liberals suck: Ward Churchill.

Churchill, a professor at the University of Colorado, wrote an article after 9/11 entitled "Some People Push Back". Among other things, Churchill compared the people who were killed in the World Trade Center attack to Nazis, calling them "little Eichmanns" in reference to Nazi technocrat Adolf Eichmann.

Academic freedom is important. But does that mean that a tenured professor has the right to say anything he wants, no matter how ridiculous? What if Churchill were a math professor who contended that 2 + 2 actually equals 5? What if Churchill were a sociology professor who claimed that Blacks were inherently inferior to Whites? Would those who defend Churchill on the grounds of "academic freedom" be so quick to come to the defense of these hypothetical professors?

It's important that our universities are places where new and innovative ideas can be freely expressed, but Churchill's remarks are disgusting, and it's even more disgusting that people gave this mongrel a standing ovation when he spoke. Today's reason why liberals suck: people like this idiot are teaching the next generation of thinkers.

I wonder if he filibustered KKK nominations too?

Today's reason why liberals suck comes from the Wall Street Journal. Turns out former Klansman and current obstructionist senator Robert Byrd is not only a bigot, he's a hypocrite, too:

http://www.opinionjournal.com/editorial/feature.html?id=110006383

Apparantly, if you're Mr. Byrd, the majority rules--unless he's in the minority, in which case the views of the minority must be respected to the point of not even allowing a VOTE on judicial nominees unless the Democrats approve. And Robert Byrd's not the only Democrat that has changed his position on filibusters since Bush has been elected and the senate has gone Republican. Here are some quotes from other Democratic senators on CLINTON'S judicial nominees:

Tom Daschle (D-SD): "I find it simply baffling that a Senator would vote against even voting on a judicial nomination."

Edward Kennedy (D-MA): "If our ... colleagues don't like them, vote against them. But give them a vote."

Patrick Leahy (D-VT): "I have stated over and over again ... that I would object and fight against any filibuster on a judge, whether it is somebody I opposed or supported."

Joseph Lieberman (D-CT): The filibuster "has unfortunately become a commonplace tactic to thwart the will of the majority."

Today's reason why liberals suck: their obstructionist tactics in the senate and unwillingness to allow Bush's judicial nominees to even come up for a vote. Mr. Byrd, Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Leahy, and Mr. Lieberman: it's time to live up to your words and stop the hypocrisy.

If nobody calls it an abortion, will the pro-lifers still make a sound?

Today's reason why liberals suck comes from townhall.com's columnist William Murchinson:

http://www.humanlifereview.com/2004_fall/world.php

Not only will anti-life activists fight to keep abortion legal at EVERY stage of pregnancy, they won't stop until abortion becomes a social norm. Bush talks about needing to change the "hearts and minds" of America--that's exactly what anti-life activists want to do, too, and they have hollywood on their side.

Today's reason why liberals suck: their consistent, ferverent , unequivocal, anti-life support of abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy.
