Great Superbowl Ad

Well this ad had an impact that's for sure. Even the pro-abortion crowd hailed it as "brilliant".

David Gibson of Politics daily agrees with Emanuel's analysis

He says the pro-life message "won big" because Focus on the Family "realized that having everyone talk about you is every bit as important as actually doing or saying something controversial."

"For weeks before the big game, the controversy over CBS' decision to reverse its previous policy barring advocacy ads to air the ad against abortion had sent Pam Tebow's story ricocheting around the Internet," he noticed.

"The pushback only generated more support for Tebow and Focus and their message, and had anti-abortion types crowing about how Pam Tebow would be discussing her difficult choice for life and urging Americans to fight abortion," he said of the reaction to pro-abortion groups attacking the ad.

Even though the ad never mentioned abortion, "everyone knew what the ad was about and the ad didn't have to say anything directly -- which is the definition of the perfect advocacy ad."

I thought the ads was very sweet. Tim and his mom were very likable and I think most people watching were glad Pam Tebow did not abort her miracle baby.

But the the pro-abortion crowd was not done. After the ad aired on Sunday, NOW president Terry O'Neil denounced it as promoting violence against women because the football player, tackled his mom.
That was too much for NOW president Terry O'Neill, who told the Los Angeles Times the ad glorified violence against women: "I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it. That's what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don't find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself."

Several newspaper columnists are taking issue with her response and Joe Henderson of the Tampa Tribune said it "trivializes real problems" women face with authentic domestic violence. (snip)
George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel also took issue with NOW's president.

"Crazy me, I thought we could agree that the Tim Tebow pro-life ad was a nice, family-friendly commercial that in no way could be deemed offensive. I was wrong," he writes. "There’s always a lunatic fringe, ready to scream and yell. Say hello to NOW president Terry O’Neill."

"No, you should be ashamed of yourself for not having a clue. This is why our country is so polarized -- because nitwits like you are so obsessed with your point of view that you have no tolerance for anyone who may disagree with you," Diaz continues.

I Can't Wait For The Superbowl!

I can't wait for the Superbowl this Sunday. Honestly I couldn't tell you who was playing or what kind of seasons each team had. My interest in pro football is usually confined to whether the Browns beat Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Beyond that it trails off significantly.


No my interest in the the Superbowl, keen enough for me to TiVo it, concerns the Superbowl Ads. Every year, I go online after the game and view the ads and many of them are quite clever. But this year I will record them just to catch a single ad. And ad that has stirred up much controversy and is causing liberal women's groups' collective heads to explode. I am talking about Focus on the Family's ad featuring Tim Tebow and his courageous mom who will tell how she, despite recommendations from her doctor to abort Tim for her own health's sake, decided to carry her now famous son to term. This act of pro choice (she chose life) has got NOW in a lather. They have denounced the ad, without even seeing it, as devisive and hurtful to women. The fact that this ad has all these whiny liberal pro-abortion types crying foul only makes me want to see it that much more. The reaction only shows the hypocrisy of "pro-choice". Mrs. Tebow chose life and apparantly she is NOT allowed to speak of her choice because according to the National Organization of Women she didn't choose correctly. And her wrong choice will divde American women who watch it during the Superbowl.

The only way that makes sense is that NOW and PP are afraid that women moved by Mrs. Tebow's testimony may choose life. And while rational thinking human beings still regard this as a choice, NOW doesn't. To them the only choice is murder. And they are so determined that no other point of view be heard that they have petitioned and threatened CBS about airing the ad.

Did I mention that Mrs. Tebow and her son are both Christians? And that Tim has a testimony of being celebate and is waiting until he gets married before having sex? He also puts Bible verses in his eye black during football games? To me that explains the intensity of the hatred and venom of those opposing him and the ad that will air this Sunday.  I can't wait.

Milestone and Apology

Okay according to sitemeter, Some time yesterday I had my 50,000th visitor. Yeah me! I find that amazing but also humbling given that last year I only posted 21 items. Now I am sure that my return visitors are probably next to non-existent. And for some reason DOZENS of people show up to see my friend Scott's zipper!

Scotts Zipper
But the numbers are not why I decided to blog in the first place. I think I have something to say and by golly you had better listen!(or don't! It is a free country after all)

I think that with 2010 and the start of a new decade I will renew my pledge to no one in particular, to point out liberal lunacy, hypocrisy and general moonbattery. At the same time exalting Christ and Christian moral values. I have already made some template changes and promise to devote more time and energy to this and and my other blog.

And I hope that the number of returning readers increase. Not that there is anything wrong with people coming to see Scott's stupid zipper tat tastefully thought out and beautifully drawn tattoo. And thank you Scott for being a faithful returning reader.

Backdoor Taxes to Hit Middle Class

I was cruising my blogroll, When I came across a piece by Ace over at Ace of Spades HQ. While President Obama promises to only tax "the wealthy", by letting Bush era tax cuts expire without renewing them he will create a "Stealth Tax Hike" on the middle class. Ace points out the story was on Reuters but is now gone.


Fortunately for now the story can be seen at Yahoo Canada.
In the 2010 budget tabled by President Barack Obama on Monday, the White House wants to let billions of dollars in tax breaks expire by the end of the year -- effectively a tax hike by stealth.

So without technically raising taxes, the Obama administration plans to increase tax revenue by allowing your tax rate to go up on its own. He can of course then claim he kept at least one promise.

So what does this mean to me and you at the end of 2010?
If the provisions are allowed to expire on December 31, the top-tier personal income tax rate will rise to 39.6 percent from 35 percent. But lower-income families will pay more as well: the 25 percent tax bracket will revert back to 28 percent; the 28 percent bracket will increase to 31 percent; and the 33 percent bracket will increase to 36 percent. The special 10 percent bracket is eliminated.

So there you have it. Obama is so good he can raise taxes without doing a thing. That must make him some sort of god in liberal tax and spend circles.

Where Are We Going And Why Are We In This Handbasket?

Well it is time for the first installment of 2010 of WAWGAWAWITH. Todays post is cutesy of Right Wing News Columnist Dr. Melissa Clouthier. In her post Abnormal Psychology Exists: You Are A Woman If You Give Birth. Period. she brings to light the situation of a legally married gay couple. Both born women and Thomas is transgendered while Scott, after having her 36DDD breasts removed, could not afford the gender reassignment surgery and thus has lived as a man in appearance only. They are legally married because some loophole where Scott, born Jessica, retained female status by virtue of her birth certificate.

Well the happy couple have decided to have a child. Scott is pregnant via sperm donation and is due to deliver next month in England. The California couple already has two sons from husband Thomas' previous relationship with a woman who has since died. Got it?
Clouthier says:
You know, there is such thing as abnormal psychology. This is NOT NORMAL. It is one thing to move to Funky Town. It's another thing to start a family there and bring children into this disordered environment.

Pretending that this is not so is akin to the government pretending that a dude with the name Mohammed who acts weird, says he wants to blow things up and then does it, isn't a terrorist.

Society cannot function if we don't have some agreement on what is acceptable social norms. Freaks do not tend to build society, they tend to be around the edges eating away at its success.
Amen Dr. Clouthier, Amen.
