Chuck Norris Facts, Real Life Edition

Everyone's seen those lists of Chuck Norris facts.
  • When Chuck Norris goes to donate blood, he declines the syringe, and instead requests a hand gun and a bucket.
  • Chuck Norris grinds his coffee with his teeth and boils the water with his own rage.
  • And a timely one for Election Day: Anytime someone is elected president in the United States, they must ask permission from Chuck Norris to live in the White House. The reason for this is because Chuck Norris had won every Federal, State, and Local election since 1777. He just allows others to run the country in his place.
Well, here's Chuck Norris in real life:
Some people think after 35 years of ceaseless controversy since the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade that abortion is an "old" issue better dropped. I do believe the economy is the issue in this election, but it's certainly not the only issue. We can't just be concerned about our finances. We must also be concerned about America's future, and those who occupy it. Our posterity matters. Their rights matter. And that includes their "unalienable Rights," with which have been "endowed by their Creator," and among them are the quintessential rights: "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Abortion is not about a woman's "right to choose." It is about a more fundamental "right to life," which is one of three specifically identified unalienable rights in the Declaration (and the Constitution through Article VII and the Bill of Rights). And it is a violation of government's primary purpose: to protect innocent life.

If the bill for abortion on demand is passed and becomes Law, we might have lost the battle but Jesus won the war.
From tomorrow we need to start praying rosaries that God forgive our nation and as reparation for the sins we have committed already.

This is a grievous defeat, especially if Obama’s pet pro-abortion bill is passed as he has promised. Grievous, especially regarding the additional murders which will be perpetrated in consequence. But in the long run, scarcely a setback, in my view.

I see the conflict over abortion as analogous to the fight over slavery. That the defenders of the hideous practice are fighting back ever harder is just part of the pattern. Their opposition, the pro-life forces, are still in the process of waking up and smelling the babys’ blood. The pro-abortion folks have no plan in place to convert their most determined enemies (dominated but by no means limited to the more orthodox, conservative Christians and Jews). Their propaganda is aimed mainly at the “middle ground”; those with less interest in strict morality and with less rigorous formation in seeking and following objective truth. The rest of their efforts are primarily coercive—legislatively. None of these will convince or deter the committed pro-life forces. In fact, the bullying and manipulation is part of what’s waking up a pro-life “sleeping giant”.

Here is the first part of a one-hour special on fighting abortion:

It’s outstanding. I recommend it.

…Chuck Norris is, in my mind, a bona fide hero.

He entered karate competitions primarily as a way to promote his chain of karate schools. He was around 25 years old, when most competitors are considering retirement, and went on to rack up an amazing string of victories.

He co-founded “Last Wish,” which is for terminally ill children. He supports it financially. If a kid’s last wish is about meeting Chuck Norris, he’s on a plane at his own expense no matter where the kid is.

He co-founded “Kick Drugs Out Of America”, which creates karate schools as an alternative to drug and gang violence. He supports this too. I was watching a daytime talk show (my co-workers had it on during break time). There was a young girl who swore Norris saved her life with this program. She had been a drug-taking gang member, and this program got her out of it. They said they’d call Chuck Norris’ home and maybe he’d get a chance to talk to him. She got all excited. The phone rang without an answer. Right when her shoulders slumped in disappointment, Chuck Norris walked out on stage to meet her (of course).

My brother met him a couple years after he stopped competing in tournaments. “I’m not a martial artist any more,” Norris said. “You aren’t?” my brother asked in startlement. “No. I only work out about five hours a day.”

Oh, and a few more factoids about Chuck Norris:

“When the bogeyman goes to bed at night, before he turns out the light, he checks under his bed for Chuck Norris.”

“Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants."
"Outer space exists because it's afraid to be on the same planet with Chuck Norris."
"Faster than a speeding bullet ... more powerful than a locomotive ... able to leap tall buildings in a single bound... yes, these are some of Chuck Norris' warm-up exercises."

Oh, and his on response to these jokes:

“I've got a bulletin for you, folks. I am no superman. I realize that now, but I didn't always. As six-time world karate champion and then a movie star, I put too much trust in who I was, what I could do and what I acquired. I forgot how much I needed others and especially God. Whether we are famous or not, we all need God. We also need other people.”
A for-real hero.
