Questions about Obamacare
Some thoughts on Obamacare:
So let me get this straight. This is a long sentence.
We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which reportedly covers 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman doesn’t understand it, passed by Congress, that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that is broke.
So what the blank could possibly go wrong?
Democrats stand against the unborn in support of abortion
I watched the highlights of the recent Democratic convention and heard a woman convention speaker say she would fight for the right of women to get abortions. And then she implied that the law that requires women to view a sonogram before their abortion wasn’t right. In response to her words, women delegates in the audience jumped to their feet cheering. (CBS This Morning)
After I watched the piece on the convention, the local news came on, and I saw a picture of an adorable puppy. A viewer had sent it in. I was doting over the puppy when I remembered the law protects the lives of animals, but not the unborn.
After the picture of the puppy was shown, a picture of a toothless, smiling baby in a field of flowers came on the screen. Her face was beaming! And, the news commentators delighted in her. Everybody loves a baby, right?
If the pro-choice Democratic convention speaker loves babies, she has a bizarre way of showing it. She’s a Democrat, and her party openly and proudly stands for the right of women to get abortions, and in so doing they stand against the unborn and their right to life.
Businesses should not get hotel occupancy tax funds
If the Texas Opry (“Funds should be used for tourist places,” Viewpoints Oct. 11) is in business to make a profit then the city council made the correct decision in denying them HOT funds.
