Unintended consequences

In Libertarian on January 26, 2009 at 5:33 pm

I’d been planning my first show for BTM TV when an errand called me past this church sign.

church-signs-001

When I first noticed the sign yesterday, I thought that it was a call for prayer for our troops. I immediately thought of Mark Twain’s War Prayer and the idea of unintended outcomes. I 86’d what I had and planned something new around the theme. After I pulled some stories, I went to dinner with some new buddies where a point that seemed to bring it all together was made: While America is arguing over abortion, class, gender and ethnicity, those who are supposed to be representing us in government are robbing us blind of our wealth and liberty.

I went back today for a picture of the sign and saw that crosses were set up to represent aborted fetuses. I intend to present the show as planned because in my mind, this picture underscores it all. Please join me at 8:00 tonight over BTM TV (Channel 1) where I’ll be presenting example after example of good intentions in public policy going horribly wrong.

  1. Miche, will there be a podcast of it? I’ll miss the show while stuck in work!😩

  2. No, but I’ll archive it as soon as possible.

    BTW, when are you going to post something new? Missing your voice here.

  3. Thanks for the post – added a link on my page in remembrance of Roe v Wade. A picture always conveys the story best.

    The picture on my site is a two generation miracle as the hand holding the baby was a ‘suggested candidate for abortion by the mom’s doctor’ years ago. The husband had a better idea, a new doctor. Praise God for wise fathers and two generations of miracles in one picture.

  4. Been up to my eyeballs on MSN battles. I gotta find a good topic. Arizona v. Johnson which came down today may be a good one.
