untitledTo believe that promoting Obamacare is doing God’s work,  you have to believe Government is God and Obama is his Messiah.   Unfortunately the Bible President Obama swore upon doesn’t guide him in Office.

Social Justice isn’t the same as collectivists redistribution of wealth.  You can’t rob Peter to buy Paul’s vote for your political ambitions and say you are doing God’s work.

Christ spoke of individual responsibility, you loving your neighbor, not expecting the Government to do all the loving for you.  Paying taxes doesn’t equate with freely giving of your time and money to aid those less fortunate.   The truth is, for all their talk wealthy Democrats give less to charity than Republicans yet  they claim they are the ones who truly care for their neighbor,  truth is most liberals don’t much care  for their neighbors, their siblings, their families,  the most important consideration is not doing something to show love for their fellow-man but instructing everyone else on how not supporting their bright utopian ideas on saving the world  proves their opponents are evil.

Secularism is basically self-love, “Here’s to thee and Here’s to me may we never disagree, if we do to Hell with You.  Here’s to Me” and justifies its existence by promoting loathing for those who still cling to their guns and Churches the heart of true freedom as put forth in our Declaration of Independence and reinforced with the Constitution.  No wonder President Obama is so contemptuous of both the Constitution and his opponents and thinks pushing Government Programs is doing GOD’s (aka Government of Democrats) work

Also explains why Eric Holder feels free to only enforce the laws he agrees with.  What a bunch of arrogant,  head up their butts, ignorant ideologues we have running this country.  However,  I don’t fear them as much as I do those in this Nation who support them because they run our Universities and Media and thus control what our youth know about America and their fellow citizens .   Unfortunately our students are taught more about Socialist Utopian aspirations then they are about what really made this country work.

Barack Obama

Does President Obama prevaricate or  lie? Is he disingenuous, or actually  stupid?  Or is he just deliberately  ignorant of how his Administration works.? As Hillary would say “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE’!!!!!!

The affordable health care program has obviously been a fraud from its inception..  No one really read it because they didn’t need too.  The big secret is that the program was designed to fail from the beginning and the Democrats were in on the scam.  No one  wanted to read it and then have to say they were in on the joke played on the American People.

Why would I say this? I say this  because it is becoming more and more apparent that the whole point of shoving this program down America’s throats was to destroy the private insurance companies so that America would beg the Government to provide Universal Health Care for them.  You think I am making this up,  well then explain why supposedly otherwise brilliant people would take three years to develop a software program they knew would fail then insist on putting it up on the web anyway.   Why would they make regulations demanding the Insurance companies change their plans,  pretend they didn’t know millions would lose their plans because of their regulations,  then try and blame the Insurance companies for having changed their plans and insist they change them back – no insurance company can survive this kind of manipulations, and this Administration knew that from the beginning.

President Obama talks about phony scandals but there was nothing phony about Benghazi except for the President’s rationalizations about the attack, there was nothing phony about the IRS targeting members of the Taxed Enough Already Party except the Administrations excuses for having developed such a policy , there was nothing phony about the Justice Department going after a Fox reporter except the dodges that the Administration took to escape responsibility for criminally pursuing a reporter for doing his job.  And there was nothing phony about Republicans trying to repeal OBAMACARE,  it was OBMACARE itself that was PHONY!

This Administration’s Czars may not be brilliant but they are too clever by half and obviously will use any tactic to accomplish the fulfillment of their utopian wet dream. We have an administration that believes Government is God and you shall not put any other God’s before them. their ethics are those professed by  Communists,  namely situation ethics – which in essence states  “In any given situation what ever I do to advance my own interests is ethical” thus you can lie, cheat, steal from the people and call it social justice.

Robbing Peter to buy Paul’s votes is not social justice.  And what ever some teachers from Notre Dame might believe Jesus did not support BIG Government.  He did not believe Government was responsible for taking care of our Neighbor in need,  Jesus preached that  we individually thru personal sacrifice for our own salvation were expected to look to the needs of  our fellow-man.

I don’t know what it will take for ordinary people to realize that they only suffer greatly under all large central governments such as those of  Caesar, Napoleon, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, and now   Obama —–Bloated,  centralized  Governments such as Obama is creating with his plan to dramatically change America  is not your friend,  never was your friend, never will be your friend.  Big centralized government is  all about Power for Control Freaks who could care less about anyone but themselves.

English: Barack Obama signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act at the White House (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I am beginning to think we have a White House full of Psychopaths.  They talk a good game about compassion for all, but from what I see they are all hat and no horse.

We have a failed President talking about phony scandals?   Benghazi a “phony” scandal?  Four brave and productive Americans needlessly  killed in a Shark like feeding frenzy.  Obviously precautions could have and should have been made to prevent such an attack after the State Dept and surely the President were made aware that all foreign embassies and personnel were targets of terrorist in Lybia.  Instead of protecting our overseas personnel this Administration spins a ludicrous tale about some obscure  video  initiating a protest of Muslim citizens!  Obviously a childish attempt   to cover up the ineptitude of the State Department and the Pentagon. Are we to believe that a spontaneous  protest of  irate Muslim citizens would include rocket launchers and sub machine guns?   Meanwhile our ever astute President’s main concern seem to have been to  get a good nights sleep so he could  wow his groupies at his next fund-raising event.

And then these self-serving,  power-hungry ideologues put salt in the wound by referring to Benghazi as a Bump in the Road, (White House Spin)),  followed by a Screeching declaration of “What difference does it make? (Hillary Clinton,  our Sec of State) and now we have “A Phony Scandal” (The President of the United States}

How about other Phony Scandals.   The IRS ordered to deliberately forestall the approval of 501 status to Conservative Groups in order to prevent them from acquiring sufficient funds to promote their views during the 2012 elections, obviously using the IRS as an arm of the Obama re-election campaign.  A Phony Scandal? What a Crock!

And while we are at it how about the Sibelius manipulations of Medicaid and Medicare,? Talk about pushing grandma off a cliff to pump up the President’s major legislative achievement.  Cut Medicare and Medicaid to make it look at though Obama care is saving the Government money. Meanwhile insulting the Catholic Church and its Bishops but demanding they bow to Secularists abortion priorities.  Maybe that isn’t considered a scandal but it should be.  Of course a bigger scandal is Notre Dame giving an honorary degree to one of the Nations  biggest Abortion legislators in the country President Obama.

The Appointees and Czars of this Administration are touted as the Best and the Brightest this Nation has to offer,  if that is actually true this Nation is beyond redemption. They may be smart but from where I sit they seem a bubble off plum at best and probably psychopathic to say the least.

Then how about playing the Racist Card   from the White House purportedly to support Trevor Martin but in real politics a blatant effort to  distract from the mounting evidence the IRS was engaged in aiding the President’s re-election campaign and fuel for the racial conflict political profiteers.  Stirring up mobs for political gain is probably an even more disgusting use of Presidential Power and more than just a scandal, I call it criminal.

easter egg roll

Holy Week is almost here and brings back memories of my life as a student at a parochial school in Wash. DC.    The area where I lived was called “Little Rome” because of all the seminarians and nuns staying in study houses and convents in the area while they attended Catholic University, and of course there was the National Shrine, dozens of Chapels, St. Anthony’s Church and the Franciscan Monastery.  Lent for the most part was daily mass with my friends and the Stations of the Cross on Friday night and confession on Saturday and no candy or ice cream except on Sunday.   Then Holy Week, mostly quiet except on Holy Thursday when we visited as many Churches and Chapels as we could, which was really a treat since each of them was overflowing with flowers and while wandering from place to place we were bombarded with Springs gift of azaleas, dogwood, forsythia, lilacs, lily of the valley, crocus, tulips, daffodils, and blossoming fruit trees.  Spring in Washington could seem like Camelot.  Easter Sunday, celebration of the Resurrection the essence of Christianity, meant a new hat, dress and shoes, the end of abstinence and fasting noted in a big Sunday Brunch followed by egg rolling on the White House Lawn,  where everyone was welcome.

However, from this distance and in my later years, I view those days not such much with nostalgia but rather as a voyeur would view an alien culture on another planet.     There was such joy and innocence in the celebration of our faith, no suspicion of priests, a little contention from time to time with our nuns, but otherwise a general respect for their choice of vocation.  We followed the Latin Mass and knew all the proper response, in Latin.   We even admitted our sins, acknowledging our own gluttony, sloth, licentiousness, lust, anger, pride, selfishness, envy and any hurt we might have caused others. We practiced abstinence, but for those that had lapses with consequences the Church provided protective homes for unwed mothers, adoption services and orphanages for neglected children.   No one denied their responsibility to honor God and our parents.     We championed virtue but loved the sinner if not the sin.  The cop on the beat was our Buddy many of them graduated from the same schools we attended.  We were not children of privilege, but we always felt privileged. Some of our parents were divorced, working mothers was the norm, mostly teachers, nurses, waitresses, and secretaries.   There were even alcoholic fathers who often struggled to hold a job, but still provided for their families as best they could. Life wasn’t idyllic but it seemed good and well worth celebrating.

I am sure there are pockets where traditional Catholic culture flourishes but it seems the country is mostly secular in their practices and have more faith in Big Government than they do in God.   Maybe I am wrong, but I don’t see many signs that I am.  Perhaps Pope Francis can bring about a revival of respect for the joyous service of God and Man through the Church, we can only hope and pray.  May you have a Happy Easter.

Sandra Fluke is hardly representative of America’s women.  The women I know are lions who would lay down their lives for their cubs.   Instead we have this charlatan, this darling of the Nanny State playing the abused kitten and whining because she is not getting her recreational sex subsidized by Georgetown Univ.  And like most champions of women’s rights excessively concerned about someone restricting her right to kill her babies in the womb.

Rush’s comments were off the point in addition to just plain rude crude and unattractive.   Instead of attacking Sandra he should have attacked the whole Democrat con man technique of misdirection which of course is what the whole dust-up surrounding President  Obama’s mandates regarding free contraceptives is about.   President Obama and his campaign committee do not want such issues as the economy and his foreign and domestic policies or the National Debt debated; instead he has his Administrators and cheer leaders in Congress concoct a side-show over contraception and abortion.

As for the women’s health issue, if in fact feminists were concerned with women’s health they would be warning women of the side effects of oral contraceptives, and emphasize the fact that the pill provides no protection from STDs which of course are a great threat to women’s reproductive health, as for abortion being a health issue, a normal full term birth is far less threatening to a women’s over all health than an abortion. Also there is some evidence of a correlation between the increase in abortions and the rise in cases of breast cancer. Actually at the root of this push for free contraceptives and abortion on demand is a strong stench of the old Eugenics and population control arguments.

However, I don’t have much compassion for the Catholic Church in this instance since they chose to push for Socialized Medicine, now they find themselves in a battle with the Administration over providing Federally mandated financial support for abortions and free contraception for all their employees.  Guess they thought they would get the same privileged exemptions as the Unions.  Sorry, Catholic hierarchy, President Obama, a proud supporter of infanticide can’t be bought off with an honorary degree from Notre Dame or even a majority of the Catholic vote.

U.S Postage Stamp, 1957

Image via Wikipedia

It didn’t take long for the slime side of this Administration and its sycophants in Congress and the Media to drown this political campaign in its smarmy, smelly ooze.

Obama’s mandate to Catholic Bishops was a direct and masterful political manipulation. The mandate removed forever any pretense that Progressives believed this Administration had any obligation to respect freedom of religion. Pretending that President Obama had caved to the Bishops and that Insurance Companies would be responsible for the monetary obligation of this mandate did nothing to alleviate the ultimate object of the mandate, namely the destruction of religious freedoms. To now pretend that Catholic leaders started a war with Obama over women’s contraceptive practices instead of recognizing that these leaders were defending the Church’s teachings from censorship by a secular government is a classic case of the communists’ tactic of controlling the masses through misdirection.
President Obama started this war for the sole purpose of sliming Republicans with this misrepresentation of their response to this dictatorial display of power. It was their plan all along to frighten women back into their fold by feigning a concern that Republicans would snatch away contraceptive privileges. The Congressional hearing Thursday was not for the purpose of presenting men’s views on contraception as claimed by President Obama’s cohorts in Congress and within the media, rather it was a presentation of the views of religious leaders to attacks on their right to freely practice and defend their religious beliefs from a increasingly anti-religious Administration, an administration that will say and do anything to maintain power and has shown its willingness to use the Constitution as little more than a convent rag in which to wantonly wrap its excess hubris

  President Obama did a magnificent job of manipulating the contraception issue in his Obamacare,  but then he is a master manipulator.   Argue all you will about his being an American citizen,  he governs like an African potentate   Can anyone please explain the difference between a mandate that the Catholic Church  offer insurance to their employees that pays  for birth control ,abortions and sterilization and a compromise that mandates that the Catholic Church  offer insurance to their employes that pays for birth control, abortions and sterilization. ??    And yet we have Millions of Catholics who think this President  caved to the Bishops and Cardinals,  probably including some Bishops and Cardinals.  Beware all you true believers The Progressive utopian wet dream with the re-election of this President will soon become just another socialist nightmare
