His highness obama offers “accommodation” to Catholic Church

His holy highness obama in his mercy has offered an accommodation/indulgence to the bishops for their failure to obey his command to provide free birth control to all women no matter “where they work ” I don’t think he will ever forgive them though.  He has instead commanded the insurance companies to provide it for free, and I don’t think he even told them he was going to command such a thing.

(Pregnancy is not a disease so preventing it or ending it is not health care to begin with and free birth control is not a right, although free birth control has now been placed on the same level or even above freedom of religion.)

We are all Catholics now.

It is totally sexist to put all the focus on women, women rights, women reproductive rights, et cetera, et certera.   I don’t know, maybe I missed the free condoms.  And sex without a condom?  Now that might qualify as a disease.  Or at least the spreading of one….or more.

REPEAL THE JOB KILLING HEALTH CARE LAW

Mr. Democrat Crowley says we are liking this more and more.  That is just simply more and more lies.  The republicans are doing exactly the right thing in having a repeal vote today.  And if Harry Reid had even one ounce of manhood he would bring it on the floor of the Senate when it arrives there.

Start over from scratch and conduct an honest legislative  process.

Obama sticks it to us again, bypasses Congress on Medicare appointment

Donald Berwick.

Look into his eyes and see what you see.

In May, 2010, Ben Domenech at Heartland.org stated the following:

President Obama’s nomination of Donald Berwick as the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is  gathering far less attention than a certain other nominee — but it will be getting more attention in the weeks to come, given his particularly radical agenda when it comes to health policy.

Well, no, not really.  There won’t be more attention paid to his radical agenda because president obama has bypassed Congress and appointed him during a recess to head up the CMS.

The New York Times states:

Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director, said the “recess appointment” was needed to carry out the new health care law. The law calls for huge changes in the two programs, which together insure nearly one-third of all Americans.

Mr. Pfeiffer said the president would appoint Dr. Berwick on Wednesday. Mr. Obama decided to act because “many Republicans in Congress have made it clear in recent weeks that they were going to stall the nomination as long as they could, solely to score political points,” Mr. Pfeiffer said.

……

The recess appointment was somewhat unusual because the Senate is in recess for less than two weeks and senators were still waiting for Dr. Berwick to submit responses to some of their requests for information. No confirmation hearing has been held or scheduled.

So while the nation is celebrating its independence, our dictator president marches on to enact his socialist agenda.

If Republicans planned to stall this appointment?  That is a good thing.  Not only stall, they should prevent the appointment, if at all possible.  Don’t you just love it how Mr. Phiffer puts it.  Obama does this arrogant power grab and it’s all the republican’s fault.  Alert:  There are democrats and republicans and all in between American citizens on medicaid and medicare who will be affected by these policies.

Remember when opponents of Obamacare said it would mean rationing?  Oh, no, they are just trying to scare you, they said.

Of course, there will be rationing.  It takes a head in the sand to say otherwise.  It was true during the debate and now it is coming to pass.  And where are they starting?  Medicaid and Medicare – the most vulnerable citizens, those who have been promised that safety-net either by extreme need or at the end of their lives, (which, by the way, they have paid into their entire working lives by force and without a choice).

The interviewer pointed out: “Critics of CER have said that it will lead to the rationing of health care.” To which Berwick replied: “The decision is not whether or not we will ration care. The decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”

http://conservativehideout.com/wordpress/2010/05/13/the-tale-of-two-obama-minions-donald-berwick-and-ezekiel-emanuel/

And the Complete Lives System, by some equation of quality adjusted life years, which is not only unAmerican but ungodly as well, will be the vehicle through which these decisions will be made.  Whether you like to believe it or not there is a death panel under Obamacare and there will be rationing under Obamacare.

Everybody knows it, most of all Obama and his administration know it.  There’s no other way to say it, they have lied about it.  Why do you think he wants to bypass congress in this appointment and thereby bypass questions and probes into Mr. Berwick’s beliefs and opinions about healthcare?  You got it.  To hide.  Notice how many things are done in the middle of the night or on congressional recess.

http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/06/01/obama-nominates-single-payer-system-advocate-to-head-medicare-and-medicaid-services/

This obama is a real piece of work.

He just continues to stick his finger in the eye of the American people.  We darn well better start fighting back.

Obama has no credibility, he has an evil objective, and now their only excuse for a recess appointment during a short two week recess is that George W. Bush did something similar.  Mr. Obama is trying really hard to do everything Bush did, isn’t he?  Bush’s Third Term.  Except his is a socialist agenda.  Bush was nowhere near a socialist.  Logic.  If it was wrong when Bush did it, it’s wrong when obama does it.  But once again, the baby obama administration blames Bush for their own actions.  Get out the pacifier, the baby is crying.  But these juvenile protestations only seek to mask the damage that is being done.

But the fore-warnings and fore-shadowing of this type of thinking is everywhere now.  What’s wrong for one is right for the other.  What’s racism for one is a lifetime of service for another.  What’s wrong for Bush is right for Obama.  And what will be a human being worth saving for one will be a human being on the garbage heap for another.

And, yes, I meant to say evil objective.  Any time you put price stickers on human life, making one more valuable than another, it is evil – and dangerous.  Because who is going to do the labeling?  Some imperfect person or panel who already thinks and believes they are superior beings.  I don’t trust any person to make that judgment.

All human life must be esteemed on the same high level.  Otherwise, who is able or trusted to decide?

54% disapprove president’s performance – 56% oppose health care

New Poll Out Today

Performance of the President – 54% DISAPPROVE.

Overall, 45% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapprove.

On health care – 56% OPPOSE health care reform plan with 45 percent STRONGLY OPPOSING.

Voters still strongly oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats and think Congress should focus instead on smaller bills that address problems individually rather than a comprehensive plan.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of voters favor the proposed health care plan, while 56% oppose it. Those figures include 45% who strongly oppose the plan and only 23% who strongly favor it.Posted:  02.23.10

Keith Olbermann: “Jail me if you must”

Well, Lord have mercy.

Keith Olbermann threatens civil disobedience in light of “federally-mandated insurance.” “Fine me if you will.  Jail me if you must.” Has he joined the Tea Party movement?

From his program last night:

KEITH OLBERMANN: Health care reform that benefits the industry at the cost of the people is intolerable and there are no moral constructs in which it can be supported. And if still the bill, and this heinous mandate become law, there is yet further reaction required. I call on all those whose conscience urges them to fight to use the only weapon that will left to us if this bill as currently constituted becomes law. We must not buy federally-mandated insurance, if this cheesy counterfeit of reform is all we can buy. No single payer? No sale. No public option? No sale. No Medicare buy-in? No sale.

I am one of the self-insured, albeit by choice. And I hereby pledge that I will not buy this perversion of health-care reform. Pass this at your peril, senators. And sign it at yours, Mr. President. I will not buy this insurance. Brand me a law-breaker if you choose. Fine me if you will. Jail me if you must.

This is getting good.  🙂
