Brownback Getting Warm Reception Too

by Family Research Council

March 2, 2007

Sam Brownback now speaking and he is getting a warm reception too. (Though there are no crowds around the monitors in the exhibit hall.)

It turns out that the line to get in the ballroom stretches down around, and around and around all the way down several hallways back to the exhibit hall. It’s incredible.

Brownback began saying he was planning to follow the Yellow Brick Road to the White House… (seems to be losing a little steam as he repeats it.)

Then early he said he wants to be the “The Family President” and work to rebuild the American family.

Later he held up two huge volumes of the IRS code (flash bulbs going off) and said it “deserves to be taken behind the barn and killed with a dull axe.”

Giuliani at CPAC

by Family Research Council

March 2, 2007

He’s speaking now to a standing-room only crowd in the Regency Ballroom here at the Omni-Shoreham. I’m in the exhibit hall where there are at least 3 big-screen televisions with crowds jammed around them watching intently.

He’s getting a rock stars reception.

He started off slow and seemed nervous. And also almost immediately launched into the “What I Learned From Ronald Reagan” schtick.

He’s concluding now … without having said one word about social issues.

Senor, or Senorita? In Spain, it’s the thought that counts

by Jared Bridges

March 2, 2007

When it comes to gender in Spain, anatomy is a gray area:

Spain’s parliament on Thursday passed a law allowing transsexuals to change their name and gender on official documents without needing to undergo surgery first.

Now that sex selection is ultimately up to the individual, rather than anatomy, those who were a little nervous about having the surgery can rest easy. All that’s required for a person to officially change his or her (or is it her or his?) sex is “to present an official medical diagnosis stating a clinically proven case of gender dysfunction and to have undergone appropriate treatment for two years before changes in identity documents can be performed.”

Somebody better double-check Spain’s “women’s” basketball team at the next Olympic games…

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Telling of Congressional Priorities

by Tony Perkins

March 2, 2007

You may not have asked, but I’ll tell you any way. Wednesday, Rep. Marty Meehan (D-MA) reintroduced legislation that would not only repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy but also the 200-year-old law that bans homosexuals from openly serving in the military. Citing opinion polls, Meehan says the general support for his bill is growing. However, what matters in this case is not what the latest poll says, but what’s best for our military and the men and women who serve. The same study that found higher civilian backing for the repeal also showed overwhelming opposition to change among our servicemen. Only 26 percent of soldiers support a move to allow gays to serve openly. With the demands on the Armed Services, Meehan estimates that over 40,000 homosexuals would join the military if the ban is lifted.

What he doesn’t address are the tens of thousands who would not join or who would leave the service if the legislation is passed. As a veteran of the Marine Corps I can say that the defense of our country should not be sacrificed for the promotion of a political agenda.
