We Passed this Law; Now We’re Learning What’s in It!

April 29, 2013 Leave a comment

Counter-CutLaughter is good for the soul.  Our news would be hilarious if it weren’t so painfully true!

Incidents of social insanity have reached epidemic proportions to the point where it’s impossible to keep up with them.  They are literally consuming and destroying our society.  Some examples of our social insanity follow:

It’s called the Affordable Care Act, except it is neither affordable, nor does it provide improvements in health care. It’s even a tax that’s not a tax. Go figure!

The Law of Unintended Consequences

February 26, 2013 Leave a comment

Counter-CutNancy Pelosi quipped as she campaigned for passage of Obamacare, “But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy”.  Well, they passed the law and now we’re finding out what’s in it.  Here are some late developments:

Obamacare is entitled the “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act.”  It accomplishes neither objective.  These are the effects of Obamacare’s unintended consequences:

  • Smaller paychecks due to reduced working hours
  • Fewer jobs available due to lower hiring
  • Higher medical insurance cost, hence less disposable family income
  • Increased welfare rolls due to fewer jobs and lower pay
  • Larger government deficit due to increased welfare rolls
  • Continued economic depression because of unmanageable government deficit and overspending
  • Loss of freedom due to bureaucratic government intrusion on our personal lives.

The list above represents a national death spiral.  If you’re concerned about your future and your children’s future, sign on to repeal Obamacare before it destroys you.

Unforeseen Consequences

Counter-CutThe Headline read: Hospitals are expected to cut some 93,000 jobs in 2013 in anticipation of ObamaCare.

Though the mainstream media hasn’t addressed the issue, I readily found numerous other examples of hospitals planning to cut staff: Read more…

ObamaCare

Counter-CutWhether or not a Presidential candidate will repeal ObamaCare is one of the key differentiators in this election.  There is much confusion on this matter; one side claims certain facts, the other claims other facts.  Is anyone speaking the truth?  How does one choose?

Actually, the answer is pretty simple:  “Where there is smoke, there must be fire.”  While it may not be scientifically provable beyond doubt, enough “smoke” exists to make one question the wisdom of embarking on yet another expensive government program of such grand proportions.

We are running trillion dollar annual deficits and our economy is in shambles; this is not the time to embark on a major financial adventure.  For this fact alone ObamaCare is the wrong legislation at the wrong time.

Add to that the fact that it was hurriedly signed into law before Americans were allowed to examine its contents, I’m more than suspicious of what’s in the package.  Are we getting a Christmas gift, or a Trick or Treat?

Let’s start with some humor.   (MUST SEE THIS SHORT VIDEO).

This is what else I learned after researching the matter a bit: Read more…

Government of the People, by the People, for the People

Counter-CutRemember California’s Proposition 8?  The voters passed it overwhelmingly.  The LGBT community challenged it in court and it was thrown out by an admittedly homosexual judge.  It is still being litigated in the courts.  So much for government of the people, by the people, for the people.

We have a similar situation replaying in the city of El Paso, but it has not received much attention outside of local news.  This is what happened: Read more…

Planned Parenthood – Not as it Looks

March 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Planned Parenthood performs about 324,000 abortions annually, and refers only about 2,400 babies for adoption.  That amounts to a mere 0.7% of its “customer” base!  Other statistics indicate that the number quoted above is several years old; there are far fewer referrals today, making the situation even more lopsided.

Shippensburg University sells Plan B pills via Vending Machine

February 21, 2012 Leave a comment

http://www.pennlive.com/newsflash/index.ssf/story/shippensburg-universitys-plan-b-vending-machine-stays-for-now/89166c4bba8d4519bd8574e2cfba3b60

The vending machine was placed on campus about two years ago and dispenses “day after” pills for $25.  This pill terminates the pregnancy by chemically preventing the fertilized egg from implanting and thereby inducing an abortion.

Editor:  This is an important bellweather of our future:  First just one college.  Then all colleges, then drug stores and super markets.  We’ve seen the pattern elsewhere.

Soon Plan B will be as readily available as chewing gum with frightening social implications:  Sexual predatory practices will be more easily hidden.  Parents will be totally in the dark when a teen-ager uses the drug.  The impetus for using condoms will be reduced, increasing the number of pregnancies and subsequent abortions – plus sexually transmitted diseases.

The impact will not be evident immediately.  But, 25 years from now, don’t be surprised if there is a significant spike in women’s illnesses such as breast cancer due to undisciplined use of the drug.
