Headlines below the fold

If you are wondering why the "deflated footballs" are getting the headlines, maybe this is why.

From Instapundit:
IT’S COVERUPS ALL THE WAY DOWN: Whistleblower: Pelosi Covered Up Role In Crisis. “We’ve long suspected the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission wasn’t honest in examining events before the meltdown. But an ex-commissioner says the probe was actually a full-blown political cover-up. In a just-released book, former FCIC member Peter Wallison says that a Democratic Congress worked with the commission’s Democratic chairman to whitewash the government’s central role in the mortgage debacle.”
The book is Peter Wallison’s Hidden in Plain Sight: What Really Caused the World’s Worst Financial Crisis and Why It Could Happen Again

TheOtherMcCain points out that Canada's sex ed standards were written by a child sex abuser.

what could go wrong?
Donald Wuerl call your office.


China's demographic crisis reported on by StrategyPage.

actually, by 2050, they'll just legalize forced euthanasia on all their elderly. You really didn't think the pro euthanasia propaganda deluge was about compassion, did you?

the article also covers their rewriting of history to get hold of the West Philippine sea (so they can control the sea lanes to Japan and Korea, not to mention natural gas).

And they note the reason China hates religion is because religious groups traditionally let the peasants overthrow the tyrannical gov'ts.

Oh yes: And China is helping Iran build their bomb.


CWN discusses the PC idea that traditional marriage is an "ideal" not the norm, meaning no one can follow that commandment so give everyone a pass.

Well, here in the Philippines, "thou shalt not steal" is also an "ideal" and doesn't keep the politicians etc. from taking their share off the top, with kickbacks and bribes being the norm.

and, if Instapundit is right, such things actually go on in NewYork state.

And "thou shalt not kill" is also an ideal.
For the west, it means aborting the kid is okay now (quick: how many news items on the pro life march in the US last week?)

but here it means getting a pass if you off your political rivals or those pesky reporters who spill the beans.

we're still waiting for justice in the murder of our nephew.


The Saudi king has died, long live the king.

heh. Maybe now women will be allowed to drive their own cars. And maybe the maids who are kept in semi slavery or the maids kept in sexual slavery will get legal help. And maybe the one million Catholic OFW working their will actually be allowed to have a church?

I gave Ruby my copy of the book Princess, about a Saudi woman...she asked if things had changed since it was written, and I had to say no...
