I have never been a fan of Dobson, this letter confirmed it.
After reading the whole thing, and having to pour a stiff drink around page 6, I am appalled
Regarding Child Pornography:
"In addition, law enforcement officials can no longer stop the distribution of child pornography, after the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the such distribution violated freedom of speech and interstate commerce laws"
I don't care how much you hate Obama, can you really think in 4 years we will be buying child porn legally. This is a ridiculous statement, no liberal I know, no matter how rabid, would ever think that this is acceptable.
"Citizens in those areas who are discovered owning guns have been subjected to heavy fines and imprisonment. Inner-city violent crime has increased dramatically."
Now I am unsure if I really can predict how gun control will change under Obama though I am sure I will not have to turn them over soon. If this is the case who will enforce this? I doubt many policemen will like this idea. If this was the case there would be war in the streets, and everyone knows this.
Education - Home Schooling:
I doubt that this will change. I have seen many friends and peers that are a result of home schooling, both religious based and traditional. Both of these groups are predominantly better rounded than people from public schools.
Miltary Policy -- Isreal
"In mid-2010 Iran launched a nuclear bomb which exploded in the middle of Tel Aviv, destroying much of that city. They then demanded that Israel
cede huge amounts of territory to the Palestinians, and after an anguished all-night cabinet meeting, Israel’s Prime Minister agreed. Israel is now reduced to a much smaller country, hardly able to defend itself, and its future remains uncertain"
Doubt that also, Israel has a tremendous arsenal of nukes (thanks to US). What I see happening if Obama cuts ties w/ Israel is Israel nuking Tehran. Honestly I dont care much for Israel, they may have had a valid point 50 years ago. Apparently there is no change in the situation, maybe they should quit harassing poor Muslim Neighborhoods.
"Now that health care is free it seems that everybody wants more of it. The waitin list for prostate cancer surgery is 3 years. The waiting list for ovarian cancer is 2 years. Just as the Canadian experience had shown prior to 2008 with its nationalized health care, so now in the
US only a small number of MRIs are performed — only 10% of what they were in the U.S. in 2008 – because they are just too expensive, and theyneed treatment, so they are almost never authorized"
I cant completely disagree with this. Socialized healthcare was explained to me by a canadian as such: You get in a horrific accident, EMS is quick and professional. The bleeding is stop, a few days in ICU goes well. Unfortunatly, you have a wrecked knee. You are sent home with a bad knee and have to wait up to 2 years for this treatment.
Healthcare is so full of corporate BS that it will take a miracle and change of society to fix it
Taxes Economy and the Poor:
The whole section is intriguing yet lengthy so I wont paste it. I will say that I dont much like Obama's economic policy, but it is no where the gloom and doom Mr. Dobson predicts.
Again well worth reading the whole section, but I dont want to paste it all.
Either way; give me a break. Liberals seem to have a very broad view of the first amendment. I'd trust Obama with my first ammendmant rights over Dobson any day.
Prosecution of former Bush administration officials
(34) Criminal charges against Republican officials: In his first week in office Obama followed President Clinton’s precedent and fired all 93 U.S. Attorneys, replacing them with his own appointments, many taken from the most active members of the American Civil Liberties
Union (ACLU). President Obama argued that this was not a selective political action like what President Bush had done, because Obama had fired all of them, conservatives and liberals alike.”
Hmm didnt Bush axe a bunch of US attorneys? for shadowy reasons? A head of our country BLATENTLY LIED to us. Maybe he should be prosecuted.
Same Sex Marriage
( Homosexual weddings: “The land of the free”? Church buildings are now considered a “public accommodation” by the United States Supreme Court and churches have no freedom to refuse to allow their buildings to be used for wedding ceremonies for homosexual couples. If they refuse, they lose their tax exempt status, and they are increasingly becoming subject to fines and anti-discrimination lawsuits"
BULLSHIT. Again a Constituational Right. If that was the case the Republicans would have done the same to Scientoligy churches. Obama seems to support all forms of religions, remember Rev Wright?
I'll all fired up over this letter. Again I am saddened that some many people will read Dobson's letter and take it completely to heart. I have a few acquaintances that are great people, some good friends, yet they will eat this up. I can wait to call them tonight.
Where can I buy Fire & Brimstone Insurance without a baptism or claiming religion
