Roundup: Prophecy fulfilled, immoral marriage, taxes, and compromise

The prophecy in question I mentioned a day or two ago. As Aurora and the WSJ predicted, the Lisbon Treaty is being forced through.

Same-sex marriage: Is it popular and persecuted, beyond perverse, or both?

Taxes go down, incomes go up. How many times must economists say it before liberals stop making fun?

Compromise on democratic values is a bad thing. It took someone long enough to say it about Europe and Islam.

marriage and same sex are two words that never belong in the same sentence. It's like saying approved murder. It just doesn't make any sense.

In my state, we have a bunch of death lovers trying to pass the "death with dignity" law.

Death with dignity? That is so laughable! Can I say something like "taxpaying with dignity" and get a law passed that I can have someone else pay for my taxes? Ah-huh! Sure!

Good grief!

Yes, it's an oxymoron, but just because some people in society are pushing for it, it appears that our lawmakers think it's right. When all the pedophiles come out of the woodwork and demand 'their rights' will we say, well, there's so many of them, it must be OK? I'm betting that this will be the case one day. There is a reason that these natural, God-given laws are in place and it's about protection...especially protecting children, the most vulnerable amongst us. Children do not do well when adopted into a gay marriage situation. That's been proven statistically (if we really need any other reason than God's word to say something is morally wrong)

When you stop and think about it from their perspective you understand why they're so upset when taxes go down. You see for us, income will go up, but for them, income actually goes down.

MK, according to what I've learned about economics (via the WSJ, naturally), when tax RATES go down, people are more productive and the economy is stronger, leading to more income to tax at that lower rate and usually increasing government REVENUE. I could have clarified that in the post.
