Has anyone checked the veracity of this story? Are we absolutely certain that this so-called “judge” in Spain is not in reality an activist right wing judge in the United States? Is Fernando Ferrin Calamita really a nom de plume for Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas?

Judge orders lesbian mother to give
up daughters or find a male partner

MADRID – A judge has ordered a lesbian mother to hand over her two daughters to their father because, he said, her homosexuality would harm them and “raised the risk” that the girls would also become lesbians, press reports said on Monday.

Judge Fernando Ferrin Calamita, who heard the case at a court in the eastern region of Murcia, also said the woman could keep custody of the children if she found another male partner.

According to Ferrin, being raised by homosexual would not allow the children the right to the proper environment to which they were entitled.

“It is understood that (a parent’s) drug addiction, child abuse, prostitution, belonging to a satanic sect or heterosexual affair would negatively affect the children and serve as a reason for a change of custody,” he said. “Well, it’s the same with homosexuality.”

Ignorance and stupidity are not confined by the borders of the United States of America after all.

Liberals Pressure Fox News Advertisers

Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.

MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America’s Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there.

At least 5,000 people nationwide have signed up to compile logs on who is running commercials on Fox, Gilliam said.

Personally, I cannot watch Fox News. After about five minutes, the lies and distortions start making me sick to my stomach. If your constitution is stronger than mine, sign up here. I am sure your help will be appreciated.

I’ve often wondered just how far the Bushies would go in the name of “homeland security.” Now I know…

Travelers Face Greater Use of Personal Data

The United States and the European Union have agreed to expand a security program that shares personal data about millions of U.S.-bound airline passengers a year, potentially including information about a person’s race, ethnicity, religion and health.

Under the agreement, airlines flying from Europe to the United States are required to provide data related to these matters to U.S. authorities if it exists in their reservation systems. The deal allows Washington to retain and use it only “where the life of a data subject or of others could be imperiled or seriously impaired,” such as in a counterterrorism investigation.

According to the deal, the information that can be used in such exceptional circumstances includes “racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership” and data about an individual’s health, traveling partners and sexual orientation.

As of this writing, this information is gathered only on people traveling from Europe to the United States. Do not be surprised, however, if in the very near future, you are required to fill out a form listing your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, and information about your health, sexual orientation and traveling partners.

All of this information is vital to our government. It helps ensure that they can have the proper authorities waiting for you at your destination. If you do not fit the “mold,” it’s off to the prison camps with you!

Big Brother, anyone?
