101st Anniversary: We Salute the BSA!

The Boys Scouts of America was incorporated Feb. 8, 1910. Sir Robert Baden-Powell began the movement in England two years prior. A hero of the South African Boer Wars, Sir Baden-Powell's troops were besieged 200 days by an overwhelming army, but thanks to his resourcefulness, his men were saved. The Boy Scouts are now the largest voluntary youth movement in the world, with membership over 25 million. In the 1917 pamphlet "Scouting & Christianity," Baden-Powell wrote: "Scouting is nothing less than applied Christianity."

Open Thread: Sanctity of Life

Today marks the 39th anniversary of the two most tragic Supreme Court decisions in American history, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Those decisions sparked a contentious debate between those who would deny that babies in the womb are worthy of legal protection, and those who rightly acknowledge that those babies constitute "life" as understood throughout history and affirmed in our Declaration of Independence. That right has been tragically denied to countless millions of babies before birth who have been sacrificed on the altar of "choice" since 1973.

Newt Gingrich Wins South Carolina Primary

From ABC: "Newt Gingrich will defeat Mitt Romney to win today's South Carolina primary, according to ABC News. Gingrich trailed Romney by double digits just days ago. But that changed quickly after Gingrich's fiery performance in Thursday night's debate."

Or...the Leftmedia-driven polls were just wrong. The ONLY poll that matters is the one registered in voting booths.

For the record, since the defeat of Jimmy Carter, every Republican primary candidate winning South Caroline went on to the general election.

SOPA/PIPA Draw Big Opposition

Members of the House and Senate are looking to put the brakes on new Internet anti-piracy legislation that may do more harm than good. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) bill in the House, and its Senate companion, the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA), were drawn up to prevent the theft of intellectual property over the web by foreign entities. Both bills have strong backing from Hollywood and other media companies, but there is growing concern that they go too far in enforcing their mandate.
