YOUR KETCHUP, SIR...

The “Ketchup With Your Crow, Mr. Moore?” books arrived late yesterday afternoon...and I’ll be mailing them out starting today. So it’s all in the hands of the your trusty post office now.

Uh-oh.

Last chance to order the few books we have left in time for Christmas. Go to: http://www.chuckmuth.com/crow.htm

W TO KOFI’S RESCUE

“The Bush administration yesterday defended U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan after a prominent U.S. senator (Sen. Norm Coleman) demanded his resignation,” reports the Washington Times this morning.

Hmmm. This smells an awful lot like the old “good cop/bad cop” routine to me. The Prez knows he has Kofi by the proverbial short hairs and I’m sure is making him squirm like a worm. In any event, it can’t but help for the rest of us to keep the pressure on Annan to step down. So please join me in signing our online petition to the Secretary-General urging his immediate resignation. You can add your name to the list by going to:

P.S. Yes, I would prefer we got rid of the existing United Nations altogether, as some of you have written; however, that is decidedly NOT doable at this time. On the other hand, getting rid of the corrupt, anti-American Annan administration IS. So please sign the petition. A half a loaf in this instance is certainly better than none at all.

SAID WITH A STRAIGHT FACE

“With Congress’ completion of its work on the 2005 budget this week, President Bush and congressional leaders have achieved a significant victory in the battle for spending discipline in Washington.”

- OMB Director Josh Bolten

“OINK, OINK” = “SPENDING DISCIPLINE”

“Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) said it is giving the entire U.S. Congress its November ‘Porker of the Month’ award, which singles out wasteful spending. . . . CAGW noted that the (2005 budget) bill includes more than 11,000 special-interest earmarks, such as $3.5 million for bus acquisition in Atlanta, Ga.; $2 million for kitchen relocation in the Fairbanks North Star Borough in Alaska; and $100,000 for the Punxsutawney Weather Museum in Pennsylvania. . . . Most insulting of all to taxpayers, CAGW said, is that ‘this sloppy, bloated, budget-busting, overdue piece of legislation guarantees a pay raise for Congress.’”

WHAT IS A “CONSERVATIVE”?

“(L)et me explain what a conservative is. A conservative believes that not only should the Supreme Court strictly construe the Constitution, but so should the president, the House, the Senate, governors, mayors and everybody else. . . . To strictly construe the Constitution is to recognize that it is not a ‘living document’ to be amended by interpretation, but rather is a contract between the states and the federal government. To be properly construed, it must be read in the context of the times in which it was written and adopted.

“A conservative is against foreign aid. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress authorized to tax the American people and then hand their money to a foreign government as either a gift or a loan. Nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government authorized to provide welfare, health care, housing or education. Nowhere in the Constitution does it mention abortion or gay marriage. Nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government authorized to subsidize either individuals or corporations.

“Philosophical and moral issues are to be decided by the legislatures of the states, not by federal courts or even by Congress, whose duties and powers are strictly limited by the Constitution. Whether homosexuals should be allowed to marry or form civil unions and whether abortion should be legal or illegal are both questions to be decided by the state legislatures. No state or federal judge should have a say in the matter, and Congress likewise has no authority to intervene one way or the other.

“A conservative Christian believes that his own soul is not imperiled if other people down the street decide to do some sinning. A conservative Christian recognizes that he is commanded to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and comfort the sick and dying. He is not commanded to shift this responsibility to government. He is not commanded to judge other people's lives and to regulate their behavior. A conservative Christian recognizes that something does not have to be illegal in order for him to refrain from doing it.

“A conservative believes in the real, traditional values of this country: courage, hard work, self-reliance, frugality, chastity before marriage, faithfulness after marriage, loyalty to family and loyalty to the Constitution. Loyalty to a political party or to a politician is profoundly un-American.”

- Columnist Charley Reese
