This & That

Sarah Palin did very well last night in the debate against Joe Biden. It seemed to us that she had Joe on the defense during most of the debate, so much so that there have been several articles published today listing all the lies that he told just during those 90 minutes. Sarah Palin speaks to everyday middle America. We still don't agree with some of John McCain's policies, but Sarah definitely makes the Republican presidential ticket more palatable.

Did You Know..

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially approved an assisted suicide measure allowing nurses to sedate, dehydrate and starve depressed or confused individuals they consider to be "terminally ill."

The bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman Patty Berg, a Democrat, passed the California Assembly Aug. 28, and the state Senate Aug. 20. It was signed by the governor yesterday.

According to an earlier report from the American Textbook Council, history textbooks throughout the U.S. schooling system promote Islam.

The new study by the IJCR found more than 500 erroneous passages in the books, including one textbook that charged that early Jewish civilization contributed little to the arts and sciences.
An excerpt from "World Civilizations," published by Thomson Wadsworth, for example, said, "Excepting the Old Testament's poetry, the Jews produced very little of note in any of the art forms ... There is no record of any important [early] Jewish contributions to the sciences."

The level of outrageousness grew: "Christianity was started by a young Palestinian named Jesus," claims "The World," published by Scott Foresman. Click on the link below to read the entire article.

And last but not least, we can't believe that Congress passed that pork-laden bailout bill. A picture is worth a thousand words...

We will be out of town this weekend, so we won't post again until Monday evening.
