Tanning bed tax is blatantly racist!

Racist tax levied only against white people!  Hidious discrimination.

The Obama administration is turning up the heat on tanning salons across the country with the passage of its new health care bill.

To help fund the $940 billion health care overhaul, a 10% tax on individuals receiving indoor tanning services was tacked on, and the initiative is expected to generate $2.7 billion over ten years.

As a result, many salon goers and owners are outraged by the so-called “tanning tax” and think they’re being unfairly targeted by the bill.

“It’s terrible,” said Jan Meshon, owner of City Sun Tanning in New York City. “You know how they say that passing a bill is a bit like making sausage? Well this was the weirdest, ugliest piece of sausage to get stuffed into the bill.”

City Sun Tanning customers are shocked and disappointed by the tax as well, and Meshon said he expects the tax to hurt business.

“We’ll do everything to keep our customers, but they are very upset by this,” he said. “When they first hear about the tax, their reaction is, ‘What? How did that get in there? Why are they attacking me?'” http://alturl.com/2yzp8

Why?

Preventive Service Task Force recommends no screening for prostate cancer

A prominent U.S. government advisory panel is recommending that men of all ages no longer be screened for prostate cancer by undergoing the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent group of medical experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine, said PSA screening results in overdiagnosis of prostate cancer and unnecessary treatment that can leave men impotent or incontinent.

Basing its recommendation mainly on two major trials of PSA testing in asymptomatic men in the United States and Europe, the task force concluded screening may only help one man in every 1,000 to avoid dying from prostate cancer.

Well, that’s a relief, only one in a thousand.  That is, unless you are the one that could have been saved.  It’s not the PSA screening that has all these side effects, but the surgery, right?  Those who oppose this say that the PSA is the only effective tool for early detection.   This panel is recommending that men of all ages no longer  be tested. 

The way this is written, it sounds like all these dire side effects are the result of the test.  There should be no side effects to a blood test.

This is the same panel that rejected regular mammograms for women in their 40s.

Rationing?  You betcha’.

The question is who and what is this panel making these recommendations?  Well, even though they are said to be “independent,” they are funded, staffed, and appointed by the HHS (under the direction of “she who sitteth upon many waters,” apostate Kathleen Sebelius.)

The task force (USPSTF), a panel of primary care physicians and epidemiologists, is funded, staffed, and appointed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

Bishops will not bow to the idols made of obama

He started this.  The time is at hand to make the stand.  He is a real piece of work, taking on the church, the supreme court, the rule of law, just trying to undermine the entire constitution.  If he is able to rip this consitution, which is his utmost desire, we are all going to be eating dog meat for a long time to come.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has taken a bold stand for religious freedom. In a recent statement, titled “Our First, Most Cherished Liberty,” the bishops call for repeal of contraception coverage mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services. The clarified position sets up a dramatic confrontation with the Obama administration—and would, if the bishops prevail, help preserve the religious liberty of all Americans.

Barack Obama listens to a question from a guests attending the Health Care Summit.

The HHS mandate requires employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception and sterilization services. It is, according to the bishops, an “unjust law.” They write: “It cannot be obeyed and therefore one does not seek relief from it, but rather its repeal.”

The statement is a rebuke of President Obama and the so-called accommodation his administration proposed in February. It also raises the stakes between the president and the leaders of America’s Catholic Church.

The bishops call on Catholics in America, “in solidarity with our fellow citizens,” not to obey the law. They implicitly compare the HHS regulation to a segregation-era statute, and even cite Martin Luther Kind Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” In a not-so-subtle manner, the bishops tell the Obama administration that they are willing to go to prison rather than comply with the mandate’s provisions.

The beast and the harlot: Four Revelations About Obamacare

Four Inconvenient Truths about Healthcare Reform

  1. Some people won’t get to keep the coverage they like
  2. Costs are not going down
  3. It’s a fantasy that it will pay for itself
  4. “The more people know about it, the more they will like it” is not happening.

Beast and the Harlot Lyrics 

This shining city built of gold,
Afar cry from innocence,
There’s more than meets the eye round here,
Look to the waters of the deep.
A city of evil.
There sat a seven-headed beast,
Ten horns raised from his head.
Symbolic woman sits on his throne,
But hatred strips her and leaves her naked.
It’s the Beast and the Harlot.
She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.
The city dressed in jewels and gold,
Fine linen, myrrh and pearls.
Her plagues will come all at once
As her mourners watch her burn.
Destroyed in an hour.
Merchants and captains of the world,
Sailors, navigators too.
Will weep and mourn this loss
With her sins piled to the sky,
It’s the Beast and the Harlot.
She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.
The day has come for all us sinners.
If you’re not a servant, you’ll be struck to the ground.
Flee the burning, greedy city.
Lookin’ back on her to see there’s nothing around.
I don’t believe in fairytales and no one wants to go to hell.
You’ve made the wrong decision and it’s easy to see.
Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us,
You’re welcome to the city where your future is set forever.
She’s a dwelling place for demons.
She’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings.
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

Obama’s War on Catholics (and bald eagles)

Obama administration wages a WAR ON CATHOLICS

But he gives permission to an Indian tribe to kill bald eagles for their religious ceremonies.

   I don’t think he likes American symbols any more than he likes Christian symbols.  Remember when he had Christian signs and symbols covered at Georgetown University?

Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage,” Julie Green Bataille, associate vice president for communications at Georgetown, told CNSNews.com

And back to the War on Catholics:

Barack  Obama’s controversial regulation of the health care policies offered by  religious organizations, one day after Catholic leaders repeated their offer to  hash out an agreement.

“The solution that was reached here … has been reached, and we firmly believe  that it achieves the goals that the president set,” Carney said at Thursday’s  White House press conference.

On Feb. 10 Obama announced a new regulation that forces religious groups to  financially support activities they abhor, but that the government supports. In  particular, the president directed religious organizations to provide insurance  policies that offer free contraceptives.

But “government has no place defining religion and religious ministry,” said  the Mar. 14 statement by the top-level administrative committee of the United  States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Rush gains listeners as result of left-wing attacks

This is sweet:

Are Rush Limbaugh’s ratings going to take off and soar as a result of the recent Sandra Fluke controversy? According to nonpartisan radio expert Michael Harrison, that’s exactly what may happen. In fact, it’s happening now.

“The irony is that he probably right now has the biggest audience he’s had in years, and the double irony of all this is sponsors that are fleeing, they’re missing out on the best advertising buy in radio,” Harrison told Washington’s Daily Caller in an interview.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/03/15/Is%20Sandra%20Fluke%20Helping%20Rush%20Get%20Listeners

I don’t doubt this a bit.  I started listening to him for the first time in my life about three years ago when one of the very first things obama said after coming to office was to tell the republican congressmen “not to listen to Limbaugh.”  He went after Rush from the word go and it has not stopped.  This whole Sandra Fluck/Rush Limbaugh distraction leads right to the white house door.

Why is obama at war with christians, religion, and the First Amendment?

Walmart and Target have been offering $9.00 per month birth control since 2007

Quick.  Somebody tell Ms. Fluck.

Just to illustrate how ridiculous and silly the screeching left are, Walmart and Target have been offering birth control pills (plus other women’s health medications) for $9.00 per month for about four years.

The press is already a mouthpiece for the liberal agenda, free speech is all but gone due to black listing and other commie McCarthy tactics, and the freedom to exercise religion of choice is under direct attack.  That’s the three bedrocks of freedom in the constitution.  I don’t see how anybody can not be alarmed by this.

Women can get birth control at Walmart for the cost of two lattes at  Starbucks.

Yet for the past two months, the Left and their media minions have been  making contraceptives out as so expensive that women can’t possibly afford them  if they’re not included in their health insurance plans.

See a whole list of medications covering women’s health at Newsbusters.
