Imposing Christian Superstition

The Christian opposition to abortion is odd. Their bible approves of abortion. It even gives instructions for a potion to induce one. And further it says the status as a human begins one month after birth. Their opposition is based on the Christian superstition that a soul enters the fertilised egg at conception. This too is strange since the discovery of conception had to await the invention of the microscope many centuries after the founding of Christianity. It is just a recent superstition. Further the Christian opposition to abortion has no rationality. The fertilised egg is less human than a piece of pond scum. The opposition amounts to forcing Christianity on non-Christians. Christian superstitions have no place being enforced in law. Any laws regulating abortion should be based on reason.

Treating Mexico Like Afghanistan

Zambada García Surely by now Americans are sick to death of the consequences of drug smuggling from Mexico. The biggest Mexican drug lord at the time of writing is Ismael Zambada García. Imagine if Obama said to Mexico, You have 48 hours to capture him and hand him over. Screw the extradition hearing. We are not prepared to present no steekin’ evidence. The Mexicans would be aghast, scarcely able to believe their ears. They might offer to let the America have a go at him, protesting What you are demanding is almost impossible. García is no ordinary criminal and he may well be hiding outside Mexico. Then Obama would invade and America would occupy Mexico ever after and sell off all its resources, especially oil. I think you might find a 10,000 Americans who would protest Obama’s behaviour, even if just on the Tea Party everything-Obama-does-is-wrong principle. Yet Bush did something even more illegal. He demanded the same thing of Afghanistan, but was also unwilling to negotiate an extradition treaty first. Further, the USA refused Afghanistan’s offer hold an ad hoc extradition hearing to present evidence. Further, the Afghans could have correctly said, The American CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) trained and funded Noriega, Saddam and bin Laden. They are your problem to put down, not ours. The only American who dares to question this illegality is Noam Chomsky
