Why is contraception treated as “Women’s Preventative Care” in the ACA? The only thing it “prevents” is pregnancy. Last time I checked, pregnancy wasn’t a disease or disorder. I don’t doubt that there are hard core feminazis that consider pregnancy a disease, but the vast majority of the population considers it normal.
Contraception isn’t for preventing diseases or disorders. It’s to allow you to have sex purely for pleasure. The methods at issue in Hobby Lobby in fact have no other purpose. Sex purely for pleasure isn’t a medical goal, any more than Hawaiian vacations are. So let’s face it — we are saying that women are so fundamentally horny and out of control that if we don’t give them free birth control, they won’t spend the $12 on the pills themselves, and will instead just get pregnant.
Here’s my problem — why doesn’t this philosophy also apply to Viagra? Erectile Disfunction, after all, is an actual disorder, unlike pregnancy. If our goal is to say that having sex purely for pleasure is a necessity, then Viagra should be at the top of the list. It not only allows sex for pleasure, but also for procreation.
Contraception is there purely to enable sex for pleasure. So why not go all the way? Why aren’t boob jobs free also? You should get big fat titties along with your IUD. After all, let’s make sure that you actually get the sex to go along with the birth control — we don’t want to waste taxpayer subsidy dollars. If we are doing free IUDs, then big ass titties and rock hard viagra super boners should be free too.
Obama causes most of his problems with his own mouth. The immigration problem is exactly that sort of thing. Obama, as President, started running his mouth about amnesty and DREAM acts, and how we should give all these things to kids who are here illegally. What was the result? People in Central America, correctly, heard that as “ship your kids here as soon as you can so they can get amnesty and all this free stuff, including college.”
That is the danger to being president. Your mouth is a loaded gun, and this asshole can’t keep his finger off the trigger. Roosevelt called it the “bully pulpit” for a reason. It isn’t like this is the first time Obama has made his own situation worse by running his mouth. He did the same thing with the IRS. I don’t know if he made any direct orders. Since the IRS is busy destroying all the incriminating evidence, we may never know. At the end of the day, though, we don’t need to have that. Obama gave them the instructions to do what they did on national television during the State of the Union Address. When he went over the line on Citizens United, he told the IRS, “start putting pressure on the kinds of groups Citizens United covers.”
This goes far beyond politics, though. Obama’s habitual line-stepping (to borrow a phrase from Charlie Murphy) is likely setting rapists free. Why? Because apparently this ass-clown can’t remember that he is the Commander-in-Chief, and lets his mouth interfere with military justice. Because he feels the need to spout off to cameras rather than his staff and subordinates, he screws up the chain of command, and ruins ongoing investigations.
Because Obama couldn’t think before he spoke, we have a flood of immigrants coming across the border, in his own Katrina. Because Obama couldn’t think before he spoke, the credibility of the IRS has been ruined for decades, if not forever. Because Obama couldn’t think before he spoke, we likely have rapists going free in the military.
This is the result of sending someone unqualified to the White House. He can learn on the job? He’s been here six years. He only has two years left. When is he going to learn how to actually do his job?
