Reax to Jeff Hart’s Reply to His Critics

Now filling my inbox, lots of emails like this:

First, [Hart writes that women will insist on] “…control of their

reproductive capability.” Please. Can we get any more tired

of a pro-abortion canard? Women have great control

over their reproductive capability – don’t have sex. Oddly, that’s part

of the “revolution” he keeps mentioning: the right of women to not be

married off by their fathers as soon as they turn 18 (or 14, or

whatever). They have a choice.

Second, every point…[Hart] makes is basis for a “living Constituion”.

“Things have changed”, “sand into a hurricane”, “irresistible power”,

etc. Doesn’t sound very conservative to me – not even close. Sounds

more like a cultural relativist. Get with it, old man; the times – they

are a-changin’.

Third is this [Hart] statement: “Until such “rights” become law they are only

theoretical rights.” Actually, the Declaration of Independence says

they are NATURAL rights, and a government doesn’t grant those rights, it

can only restrict them. And, it says that a government that denies

those rights is illegitimate and should be dissolved. And, then, of

course, he uses those who have waived their rights by their own actions

against society as an example of those rights being “denied”. (And, I

can’t find anything in the Constitution for or against conscription –

not a word.)

Lastly, Fr. Murray is spot on.

Here Comes the Biden Blame Game

During the eight years that President Obama and his team managed the economy, Americans were regularly assured that the president’s Keynesian policies would deliver striking growth in the years ahead.
