Pleeeez talk to us, your highness . . .

He don’t like to talk?

[A]fter [Obama] signed the bill [promoting press freedom around the world], and as the press “wranglers” began aggressively herding us out of the room, I asked if he still has confidence in BP [whom he excoriated on Friday, taking no questions]. He ignored the question so I tried this: “In the interest of press freedom, would you take a couple questions on BP?”

That did elicit a smile, and he told me I was free to ask questions. Someone else shouted, “Will you answer them?”

He said he’s not holding a press conference today as we were escorted out the door.

Obama won't talk

Look, he’s a very superior fella, in every way.  Can you get that straight?

Justice, law, and endless variety

Consider this, that envy lies at the root of all “social justice.”  People want what others have.

And this, that the slogan “no peace without justice” is a prescription for endless war.

And this, the venerable folk saying, “Ain’t no justice,” is a not bad description of the world as she is — and will be.

And this, “There oughta be a law,” once a joke line, has become something big-govt. people are dead serious about.

Aint no justice-hatlo

And “There are good and bad of all kinds” is your perfect contribution to a discussion of group hostility.

Another thing: When you get down to it, the bishops and others who condemn enforcement of immigration law want open borders.  How else explain their repeated support of amnesty?

Also: Back when the bishops, led by Joseph Bernardin of Chicago, condemned nuclear war and he made the cover of Time Mag, to what extent did they not support belief in Divine Providence?

Pro-aborts losing?

What do you know?  The younger you are, the more pro-life!

Americans in the 18 to 29 age bracket are now more likely than their elders to believe abortion should be illegal in all circumstances, according to the data released last week, and generally oppose abortion in greater numbers than Baby Boomers.

That’s Gallup Poll numbers. 

Something’s working.

And try this on for size:

Republican candidates now hold a five-point lead over Democrats in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot, a further narrowing of the gap between the two parties to the smallest margin this year.

That’s from Rasmussen.
