WHITE HOUSE EASTER "INCLUSIVE" - Did homosexual and lesbian parents participate with their children in Easter egg hunts at the White House during the Bush Administration? Yes ... but the numbers are not known because there was no requirement of sexual "orientation" for a parent to bring a child. But President Barack Obama has set a quota system that will deny some children entrance into the annual Easter egg hunt at the White House because their parents are not homosexuals or lesbians. This is what liberals do not understand: setting quotas to assure representation of members of a certain group denies access to members of other groups. By setting aside a block of slots just for the children of homosexuals and lesbians, President Barack Obama has made it clear that their group is more important than all other groups of people -- blacks, Catholics, Jews, Chinese, whatever.

OBAMA'S RESPECT FOR ISLAM - At a stop in Turkey, President Barack Obama made the statement that he and America had "respect" for Islam. Unfortunately, the Islamic nations have no respect for America, for democracy or for Obama. Read this impressive analysis.

"TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI" - The first line of the Marine Corps Hymn talks of their first overseas battle. The Marines were sent to North Africa by President Tomas Jefferson to destroy the Muslim pirate operation that had ravaged shipping lanes for centuries. Fast forward: President Barack Obama dispatched a warship to "talk" to a group of Muslim pirates holding an American captive in a small boat that was floating and out of gas. When the captive, Captain Phillips, tried to escape, he was in the water for more than 30 minutes while the destroyer USS Bainbridge took no action to assist him. He was recaptured by the Muslim pirates.

CONGRESS IN RECESS - There is no mention of the "Easter Recess" at Speaker Pelosi's Internet site. There is also no mention of the break at the site of the Majority Leader nor the Majority Whip. Congress is just sort of not there, and no reason is given at all. The Whip site does not even have a return date; the calendar page is just blank. Minority Whip Eric Cantor's Internet calendar shows the two week absence as a "District Work Period, but does show the Passover and Easter dates. The recess ends on April 20th.

UNIV OF MARYLAND AND PORN - A triple X- rated porn film, Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, is scheduled to show this Easter Weekend on campus as part of an officially approved event. After Maryland state Senator Andrew Harris learned of the porn showing, which contains violence against women, and varying degrees of rape and group sex, he introduced an amendment to a spending bill that would cut off funds to the school. Because of the outrage from the community, the showing of the film was canceled. Read more

UNIV OF MARYLAND AND PRAYER - The student Senate of the University of Maryland voted to ban any prayer at the commencement service this year. The decision was made, perhaps, because those viewing porn films on campus may have their feelings hurt by prayer. Once the news of the cancellation of a commencement prayer got out, the university's president, C.D. MOTE, Jr., was forced to overrule the Senate because of the adverse publicity. Read More Note to employers: If you plan on hiring graduates of the University of Maryland you may want to have porn filters on your office Internet servers.
