I think it’s actually a good idea.
I am pretty sure France doesn’t have a freedom of religion deal going on so I am in agreement with this ban.
I think full covering of the face is a dangerous practice.
Call me closed minded but in this day and age, I agree.
I also just read an article that stated that the full face covering was not a requirement of the Muslim faith. Women can choose to cover their whole face but it is not required.

I like Thomas Sowell. The points he brings up in this article are so relevant.
While it was a huge victory for republicans in Massachusetts, it doesn’t mean that the majority can’t do anything, because they still can ram anything through that they want. It just makes it a tiny bit harder with the Scott Brown win.
Some of the most melancholy letters and e-mails that are sent to me are from people who lament that there is nothing they can do about the bad policies that they see ruining this country. They don’t have any media outlet for their opinions and the letters they send to their Congressmen are either ignored or are answered by form letters with weasel words. They feel powerless.

I am so excited!! No really, I am!!!
Seriously, I just cannot believe that BO thinks that the people he is choosing for these positions are going to pass muster with the general public. You know, the people who actually elected him. The people for whom HE works FOR??
Apparently he is not listening and will continue to not listen, much to his very own detriment. But, so be it.
Here is the article about Dawn Johnsen. Worth the read.
Dawn Johnsen is President Obama’s nominee to head the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel (OLC). It’s arguably the most important office at DoJ. OLC sets policy for the entire federal government.
When not serving in government, Dawn Johnsen has spent her career promoting abortion-on-demand. She denies there is even such a thing as Partial-Birth Abortion. Even the term, she maintains, is “intentionally provocative.” She does not think that “progressives”—that’s PC-speak for liberal—should suggest that abortion is ever a tragedy.

It seems a truce has been called on Fox News by the White House.
Robert Gibbs, the WH Press Secretary appeared on Chris Wallace’s Sunday program.
I’m sure only because Scott Brown won and he wanted to assure us all that the WH is not worried about it.
Blah, blah, blah…………………..
It’s interesting to me that about 33 percent of Democrats watch Fox News! Yet they call it Faux News, Fox Noise, etc. Yet they continue to watch the channel!!
Transcript: Robert Gibbs on ‘FNS’
Sunday, January 24, 2010
The following is a rush transcript of the January 24, 2010, edition of “Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace.” This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.
CHRIS WALLACE, ANCHOR: I’m Chris Wallace and this is “Fox News Sunday.” The political winds of change rattle Washington. In the wake of Scott Brown’s upset win, will President Obama be forced to reshape his agenda? We’ll ask one of his closest advisers, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, in a “Fox News Sunday” exclusive.
Then, Republicans celebrate their victory in Massachusetts but have their eye on a bigger prize in November. We’ll handicap GOP chances to cut into the Democratic majority with John Cornyn, chairman of the Republican Senate Campaign Committee.
And the Obama administration takes aim at Wall Street again. We’ll ask our Sunday regulars if this new populism is smart politics and good business, all right now on “Fox News Sunday.”
And hello again from Fox News in Washington. Joining us now, one of the president’s top advisers, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
And, Robert, welcome back.
ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Thanks for having me, Chris.
WALLACE: Let’s start with the effort to get Ben Bernanke a second term as chairman of the Federal Reserve. Do you now have the 60 votes you need for confirmation?

Oops, now I am sounding like what I am going to post about.
Seriously, one of the only ways for the left to fight is to call conservatives or republicans names.
Take George Bush for example. All I hear about him from the left is “what an idiot, he’s a moron, he’s a liar, he lied,” etc ad nauseum.
All I hear from them is , “what a bunch of idiots. They are so stupid, uneducated, bible reading, gun toting idiots.” etc ad nauseum.
When things aren’t going there way, they start with the name calling and denegrating the right.
Take the Scott Brown win. When BO went to Massachusetts on Sunday, he mocked Scott Brown for driving a PICKUP TRUCK!!! WHY?? There are a whole lot of people in the USA that drive pickup trucks!
Then there is Joy Behar making the comment that Palin followers don’t even read. She can’t really be serious can she?? Does she not realize how many people she alienated with that senseless comment??
But, the tables turn if anyone on the right says one word that doesn’t agree with the BO administration. More name calling. Racist, hater, fear monger , war monger, tea baggers, bigot , homophobe etc ad naseum.
But look here, we have first amendment rights. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. But no, no one can say one work against BO.
Then there’s Mike Malloy. He is totally off his rocker. He was a bit miffed when Scott Brown won in Massachusetts. Here’s what he had to say. It is beyond awful that anyone would say this tripe about anyone. He ought to be ashamed. But somehow, I don’t believe he is.
That’s ok, these far left progressives can continue to mock conservatives, our values and GOD. One day they will surely see the light.
Malloy: Rush, Sean, Glenn, and Bill ‘Bombed’ America on 9/11
Wed, 01/20/2010 – 15:27 ET
Radical-left talk show host Mike Malloy went on a tear again on Tuesday night as election returns poured in from Massachusetts. Malloy was blunt about the voters. To him, they said: “We want a theocratic madman as our senator.”

Do you know what a progressive is?? You should learn.
Do you know the difference between a democrat and a progressive? You should learn.
Listen to BO speak and notice how many times he refers to “progressives”.
Hillary claims to be a “modern progressive”.
The democrats are hiding behind the progressive label, except they are not hiding anymore.

I thought this was interesting given the climate in the mainstream media.
For someone to actually come out and say this is astonishing.
Mika Brzezinski: The Media Does Have A Liberal Bias — “That’s Why We Have Fox”
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski was a guest on Julie Menin’s Give & Take and she had a lot to say about the opinion media — that is to say, the media who pretend they’re not the opinion media. Said Brzezinski of the media establishment: “I will say what people aren’t saying: It’s got a liberal worldview.”
When asked by host Julie Menin if liberal bias was “seeping into the coverage” Brzezinski said emphatically that yes, it was, and suggested that journalists should declare their political affiliation — and who they voted for in the last election. “
