All I Need To Know About Jeff Oravits

Filed under: Politics — site admin @ 8:49 pm

I learned by seeing his campaign sign in a Ron Paul mobile. Oravits, when your supporters run around trying to end half the government (and never getting anything at all to even come up for vote – Ron Paul) including repealing the civil rights act and going back to the gold standard, then I know what kind of political nut job you are.

Limpbaugh Calls Woman a Slut on Air

Filed under: Politics — site admin @ 8:07 pm

Limpbaugh, slug of the airwaves, has sunk to a new slime encompassed low. He is calling Sandra Fluke a slut and wants her to post her sex acts online if he is going to have to “pay” for her contraceptives – since that’s all that contraceptives are good for. In Rush’s words, “so much sex that they are going broke.”

Now, the reality is that Sandra was testifying about a friend of hers who could not convince her employer that a pill that prevents the release of an egg from the ovary was medically necessary. Necessary because she suffered from ovarian cysts, a painful condition that actually led Sandra’s friend to actually lose that ovary, leading to early onset menopause. The employer and the insurance company were somehow convinced that the only use of the pill was to not get pregnant.

This is about basic health care. It’s about money too, sure. But it’s about money when health insurance covers Viagra too. It’s about money when the insurance company has to pay for an invasive procedure to remove a woman’s ovary. It’s about money when that insurance company has to pay for hormone replacement therapy for the next 50 years for the same woman for whom they refused a simple hormone therapy that would have saved her ovary.

Limpbaugh – man without a clue. There is no good word for him. None. He is a vile oozing pustule of hatred and loathing. It’s time to shut this guy down. He is the de facto leader of the repugnican party. Look around, Fox and Friends are slamming Ms. Fluke, arm in arm with Rush. The repugnican leadership is silent – Romney merely says, “I wouldn’t have used that language.” What language? You wouldn’t have told her to post her sex tapes online?

Religion and Health Care

Filed under: Politics,Religion — site admin @ 7:28 pm

This is the slippery slope that we are on. Religious groups want to be able to deny contraceptives (birth control) to their employees. Well, what they really want is to not pay for contraceptives so that women in their employ continue to be ruled and controlled by the men who run their churches. Of course, this is not good enough for those ruled by belief. They also want to rewrite the rules so that any employer can “opt out” of providing this benefit for religious reasons. So the owner of a McDonald’s franchise, Meineke or Joe’s Sub Shop can choose not to offer contraceptives as part of their health plan.
What if the employer is Jehovah Witness, is it OK for the employer to refuse to offer blood transfusions? How about one of those other religions that chooses to pray instead of accepting a medically necessary procedure such as the family that nearly allows their child to die because they knew prayer would save their child’s necrotic limbs?
How about the mother who died after child birth when a simple transfusion would have saved her life? How about the woman ex-communicated because she needed a lung transplant and chose to save her own life by accepting a blood transfusion? Or the woman and her child who died due to her religious beliefs.
And don’t get me started on doctors who violate the trust of their patients by allowing their religious or “moral” views to refuse to proscribe treatments or even to advise their patients that treatments are available to them.

This is where we are. Time to stand up and fight for your right to full and complete health care. We are nearly there with the affordable health care act. Don’t let it be diminished by someone else’s belief that you should not have a blood transfusion or the belief that surgery is an abomination to god and prayer will fix all. Look up your congress critter on the People’s Email Network and let them know religion and healthcare don’t mix.

Ron Paul to the Rescue

Filed under: Politics — site admin @ 7:04 pm

Have you seen those Ron Paul 2012 signs? The ones that ask if we remember the constitution.

Do you remember 1776 and the original constitution? When black people were three fifths of a whole person, women were chattel and the super wealthy were the ones who paid taxes and supported our military to break away from the King of England, oh and by the way they actually fought in those wars.

Yeah, let’s go back to that. Let’s go back to the gold standard, get government out of “private” businesses and allow them to put up their “whites only” signs again.
Ron Paul 2012!

Santorum Is a Murderer

Filed under: Politics — site admin @ 8:13 pm

I am channeling John Kyl in my title. That is, it is not meant as a factual statement.
But what if I were to take senator Santorum at his word on his faith? Santorum believes that life begins at conception. He believes that preventing a fertilized egg from attaching itself to the uterine wall is murder. He is also against contraception and believes that the IUD is murder. He believes that the morning after pill is murder. Does he also believe that not allowing a sperm cell and an egg to combine is murder?
He wants the government out of your life, unless it’s your bedroom or your vagina, then it’s a GOP house party. And do you really want all those old white dudes up in your vagina?

Santorum Oozes Sleaze

Filed under: Politics — site admin @ 7:55 pm

Rick Santorum has stated that “mandatory” prenatal exams will lead to an increase in abortions. His reasoning is the mandatory free prenatal care and prenatal screening required under the affordable care act will lead to more doctors recommending termination of pregancies where the fetus is likely to be malformed, still born or have a life shortening genetic disorder. So his response is to not require the test? Or not require the insurance provider all pay for the test with no additional cost?
Senator Santorum, every time I hear about “individual choice” from your party I can’t help but think about what you really mean: choice as long as it matches my ideals because I’m right and you’re wrong and my god defined murder so that’s what I call freedom of choice for women.

Climate Change Deniers Documents Leaked

Filed under: Politics — site admin @ 7:01 pm

Discover Magazine has an article on the false science and spin of the Heartland Institute when it comes to climate change.
Now, the Heartland Institute has issued a statement about supposed Stolen and Fake Documents

Yesterday afternoon, two advocacy groups posted online several documents they claimed were The Heartland Institute’s 2012 budget, fundraising, and strategy plans. Some of these documents were stolen from Heartland, at least one is a fake, and some may have been altered.

The stolen documents appear to have been written by Heartland’s president for a board meeting that took place on January 17. He was traveling at the time this story broke yesterday afternoon and still has not had the opportunity to read them all to see if they were altered. Therefore, the authenticity of those documents has not been confirmed.

Really? Your organization cannot comment on the validity of the documents because the president of the organization is traveling? The documents are real or they are not, whether he is a in an undisclosed location has nothing to do with pushing your personal agenda when it comes to climate change.

The whole GOP field is in the top 1%. Who do you think all those people are protesting?
