Ben Stein Gets It

(From the American Spectator Online)
Ben Stein nails it-short and sweet:

To Be Absolutely Frank
Simply Terrifying

Here is what makes me furious about the Terry Schiavo case, short and sweet.

The courts of the United States can find a right for the abortion industry to take a fully formed, totally healthy baby at nine months' term, out of his mother's womb and murder it by putting scissors through his brain and grinding them about.

They do this without one single word of support from any Congressional act of any kind ever.

They can find a right of savage murderers of innocent women who drown them for a lark to avoid the death penalty because they are old enough to drive and to kill but supposedly too young to be executed. Again, there is not one syllable in any Congressional act that sanctions this protection of the guilty.

But with the Congress and the President of the United States pleading for the life of a woman who is not brain dead, who responds to words and to touch, who is not on life support, whose parents beg for her to be kept alive, whose nurses give affidavits that she can be rehabilitated, with a specific law commanding the courts to review the case to keep this poor soul alive, the courts instead find no rights for her.

This is a court system totally out of control, obviously committed to death, obviously bound by nothing beyond its morbid obsession with its own omnipotence and its fascination with the letting the innocent die. This is simply terrifying. The Falange followers of Francisco Franco had an evil cry: Long live death. Obviously, Justice Kennedy was listening.

Is this the guy from Ferris Bueller (don't make fun of me if I am wrong). I have seen him on TV before. A very smart guy.

Hi Gindy!

Yep, that`s the guy alright! He`s also the guy who did the Clear-eyes commercials, and he has a game show on cable called ``Win Ben Stein`s Money``. He is VERY smart, and writes a regular column for the American Spectator.

I`ve been wanting to respond to some of your articles over at your own blog but have been unable to get them to go through. E-blogger drives me nuts! You`ve had some really good stuff over there; I liked the one about cousins marrying (that`s a common phonomenon here in Missouri), and about Colin Powell. You always have such great stuff.
