A-C-L-Doesn't Represent-U

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

The ACLU Is Out of Line

I, like the author, "have always respected the organization's reputation as a defender of civil liberties. " However, their recent suit undermines the war effort and does more to fuel the flames of the "we hate Bush" fire than it does to protect American civil liberties. Today's reason why liberals suck: groups who claim to promote American civil liberties, yet file lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs who have never even set food in the United States.

Where in the constitution does is say thatwe have to follow French law?

Today's reason why liberals suck:

US Constitution: Made in Jamaica?

No matter how you feel about the execution of juveniles, it is not the place of the Supreme Court to subvert state legislatures on the basis of an imagined "national consensus" or the laws of other countries. The job of the Supreme Court is to interpret the laws of the United States in accordance wit hthe UNITED STATES constitution. Today's reason why liberals suck: judges who try to create, rather than interpret, law, and who use foreign law, which is completely inapplicable in the United States, as a basis to do so.

Diagnosis: Imperfect

Today's reason why liberals suck comes to us from the U.K, where doctors have decided that a late-term abortion performed on a woman carrying a fetus with a cleft palate was done "in good faith":

Cleft Lip Abortion Done "In Good Faith"

In the U.K., unlike in the U.S., unborn children actually have some rights--a pregnancy cannot be terminated after 24 weeks, with certain exceptions. One of those exceptions is if the unborn child is "seriously handicapped", and the example above demonstrates the problem with aborting fetuses deemed to be "disabled". What exactly is disabled? Down's Syndrome? A cleft palate? A missing arm or leg? A missing toe? There is no clear line to be drawn here, and no child deserves to be aborted because he or she doesn't live up to the parent's "standards" of a perfect baby. Today's reason why liberals suck: their disregard of the rights of those in society that need the most protection.

If it's anything like a heterosexual marraige, chances are it'll end in divorce anyway

Today's reaon why liberals suck comes to us from San Francisco, where a San Fransisco Superior Court judge has struck down a California law defining marraige as between a man and a woman:

Judge Strikes Down Ban on Same-Sex Marraige

The Family Research Council has a good article on their website about why gay marraige is not a civil right: "same-sex marriage is not a civil rights issue. Without exception, every adult . . . already has a right to marry. But everyone also has restrictions on whom they may marry--again, without exception. No one is permitted to marry a child, a close blood relative, a person who is already married, or a person of the same sex. These restrictions apply equally to everyone--there is no discrimination involved." Today's reason why liberals suck: activist judges who think they know more about marraige than thousands of years of human history--and the majority of the American public--know.

Keep Sadaam, Throw Bush out

Today's reason why liberals suck comes to us all the way from Australia:

Pests in Freedom's Way

Amir Tehri asks, "why are so many Westerners, living in mature democracies, ready to march against the toppling of a despot in Iraq but unwilling to take to the streets in support of the democratic movement in the Middle East?" The answer is unclear. But what IS clear is that in the past 6 months, there has been a remarkable shift in the tone of Middle East politics, and it has been an overwhelmingly positive sign for those who love democracy. Today's reason why liberals suck: protesters who are more concerned with comparing Bush to Hitler than they are with nurturing emerging democratic movements in the Middle East.

And they smell bad, too

Normally I stay away from insulting the French--they're just such easy targets. But this article by Ralph Reiland caught my eye today:

The Problem With France

"I was in Paris a couple of weeks ago and I well remember the retired French diplomat who assured me that 'a man like George W. Bush is simply not possible in our politics. For a creature of such crude, simplistic and extreme views to be one of the two principal candidates in a presidential election would be inconceivable here. Inconceivable.'"
I'm not sure what I find more disturbing: the French, or the liberals here in this country that actually want to let French opinion dictate our foreign policy. Today's reason why liberals suck: they want to let people who couldn't defend their own country in WWII dictate how we can defend our country now.

Don't spread hate, legislate!

Today's reason why liberals suck comes from FoxNews.com's Radley Balko:

Nanny-State Lawmakers Abuse Power

These legislators may have good intentions, but with every bill they pass that's meant to keep us safer, they take away a little bit more of our freedom. Today's reason why liberals suck: legislatures who incorrectly think that their place is not to keep us safe from others who would harm us, but to keep us from harming ourselves.
