thank god! thank god! thank god!


You have no idea how close we came to having a constitutional right that has existed for over 200 years negated by leftist activist Justices on the Supreme Court, do you? I woke up this morning expecting to be horrified but, thank God, we have a president who was able to get two moderate nominations approved during his term so that those members who believe that the Constitution only means what they say it means came up one vote short.

By a narrow 5-4 vote, the Court decided that, yes, the Constitution still exists and that the Second Amendment actually means what it says in giving individual citizens the right to bear arms.

It is frightening that four Justices are still refusing to use the Constitution in their exercise of judicial review, preferring to cite foreign law, polls, and evolving societal standards of progress instead of actual law.

This is what the left in this country has brought us, and threatens still to inflict upon this nation, in its perverted attempt to alter our very government step-by-step, inch-by-inch, into a fascist state in which they, not the Constitution, decide what rights you and I are entitled to.

In typical fashion, Barack Obama wants to have it both ways, supporting the decision in its essence and ignoring all the statements he’s previously made in favor of the banning of guns. The fact, however, that he has made no bones about supporting the nomination of radical leftists like Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Stephen Breyer, individuals who want to use their positions to legislate from the bench, is cause for deep concern.

Imagine what would have happened in this country had Justice Kennedy come down on the side of Fascism! I shudder to think.

The other two recent decisions in recent weeks is an indication of what we have to look forward to.

In the first case, Justice Anthony Kennedy joined the four liberal Justices in deciding that illegal combatants, detained during a war, have the right of habeas corpus, a right our own military do not have, and may petition civilian courts to be released … perhaps into your neighborhood should they argue their lives might be endangered should they be returned to their own countries. Don’t laugh. That was just done in the United Kingdom where a terrorist was not only released but given a monthly pension of around $1200 in U.S. dollars.

On the menu? How about Miranda Rights to terrorists on the battlefield? Think I'm kidding? Watch what happens should the Democrats win the White House and Congress and start appointing some far-left liberal Justices to the Supreme Court.

The ramifications of this decision are mind-boggling. I shudder to think!

Then we have the case of a man who actually lived near my own home, a 300 pound monster, Patrick Kennedy, who brutally raped his 8-year-old stepdaughter five years ago and was sentenced to death under a 1995 Louisiana law:


A Child Rapist! He bathed her after the rape and then waited hours before calling 911 for help, claiming she’d been raped by two neighborhood teenagers while she was outside selling Girl Scout cookies. He called a carpet-cleaning company about removing blood from carpet.

This child sustained horrible injuries and trauma, had to undergo emergency surgery, can never have children, and will be physically, mentally, and emotionally scarred for life.

"We conclude there is a national consensus against capital punishment for the crime of child rape," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote.

Really? Maybe the five Justices in the majority should use their vacation time to travel around the country explaining to concerned parents how they were just giving the people what they want. They could start right here in Louisiana. I can guarantee they’ll draw some huge crowds.

I’ve also read blogs supporting the decision, some asserting that we are too hung up on sex, that somehow we tend to overdo it when it comes to sex crimes. I read one comment where a mother said something to the effect that, “Hey, it’s not like my daughter would be dead … just damaged, and my love could heal that.”

I think the taking of life, even a guilty and worthless one, is a heartbreaking and awesome responsibility. But I’m sorry … this is sick. If that’s your opinion, wait until it’s your child that is damaged. And everyone should know, rape is not primarily about sex. It’s about power, and degradation, and in the case of babies and children as victims, borders on the demonic.

The next time I hear a liberal say, “It’s all about the children!” I think I’ll puke. Are these people suicidal or what?

Look, if you want to continue down this path these morons are taking us, keep ignoring what’s going on in this country, or better yet, keep working for and electing these people who are apparently so blind, and so out of touch with what we have always stood for and what they're doing to this country, they'll do anything to gain power and promote their agenda. As for me … I’ll die first.

Next on their agenda? Free speech maybe? Nancy Pelosi and her minions are working on that now. They'll have to be content at present with bragging to their parents and children how they gave rights to terrorists and child rapists. Today, they got their butts spanked. I so hope they'll have to learn how to get used to it.

I agree with you whole-heartedly. I think there is something being called too liberal and people just don't seem to understand that. These types of people that you are talking about, lessening the punishment for child rape and trying to mess with the constitution are living in la la land.

It gets me mad especially, because I am a Mother as well and I find something really wrong with the Mother who said “Hey, it’s not like my daughter would be dead … just damaged, and my love could heal that”. Honestly, I would love my child the same but those scars may never heal no matter how much love I gave them.

Re: Wow...
Thanks for your comment. :-)

It was rather serendipitous that you found this post after creating your new journal. I wish you much good luck with it and hope it will be more fun than drama.

I see you enjoy writing, which can be a joy and a burden. Most of what I posted in the first year and a half of my journal involved my after-Katrina recovery here in Louisiana and was peppered with a lot of humor, self deprecation, philosophy, creative writing, poetry, stories, etc.

You appear to have a long future ahead of you if your bio is accurate, and I wish you well. No matter what anyone says, you can do pretty much whatever you want to as long as you educate yourself, keep your eyes open, maaintain a sense of curiosity and good humor, and work like the dickens.

I have a feeling you are well along the way.

I'm of two minds about the child-rape decision. Part of me thinks the death penalty is only what they deserve. The other part thinks that it's too good for them, that they should endure this same treatment from their fellow inmates in prison, or, the parents (if they are not the guilty party(ies)) should be allowed to do whatever they want with the attacker.

(A Time to Kill is a mediocre movie, but Samuel L. Jackson's rage as the father of a young victim seems spot-on "Yes, they deserved to die and I hope they burn in hell!").

I believe more and more that we as a society are becoming numb to what is going on around us.

I thought seriously about posting the horrible internal injuries this poor child suffered but, out of respect for her as a human being, decided not to for fear it seem I was exploiting her to make a point. Suffice it to say she was savaged.

This monster did not take a life? I beg to differ. He took the lives of any future children as sure as if he'd snipped their spinal chords and sucked their brains out, a practice more and more people seem to be describing as a personal choice.

Maybe that's why the "Supremes" didn't think that fact worthy of consideration, in addition to falling back onto their penchant for legislating from the bench and telling people and their representatives they can't be trusted to make rational decisions on life and death, a power given to them, no matter how much the dislike it, through the Constitution.

I wonder if more strong women in leadership positions might be our only hope. I've maintained for years that when it comes to common sense, it usually takes a woman to figure out where the rubber meets the road.

Unfortunately, there appear to be too few Margaret Thatchers, Indira Ghandis, and Golda Meiers, and far too many Nancy Pelosis, Hillary Clintons, and Ruth Bader Ginsbergs ... IMHO.
