The sad thing is the state is mostly red--it is just we are outvoted by Cook County and a few other liberal pockets. It is sad!!! I do not see why they are such slow learners up north--the state is a hellhole, and it has been run into the ground by liberal politicians, but they keep voting for them. The Democrats just keep working overtime to give "freebies" (read tax-payer funded) to those who are undeserving. The state is a pathetic mess, and unless we get more people paying the taxes instead of taking from--it is not going to get better.
The last line says it all...if a woman does not want to work for a company that doesn't provide the insurance she thinks she is entitled to, then it is her responsibility to do so. I paid for my own birth control pills for years never realizing I should have been screeching that it was someone else's duty to pay. Truly, is anything "free?" NO. We pay through higher premiums because nothing is free!!!
Frankly, this is sickening! If we are not the greatest nation on earth...which one is according to these people? Why are they not proud? Is it because America is not perfect? Well, my kids aren't perfect either, but I am still as proud as I can be of each and every one of them! Is there room for improvement? Yes there is! One way to improve would be to tell the deadbeats there is no more free lunch or "free" anything else! Everyone pulls their weight, and everyone invests in the success of this nation! I am more than a little disgusted at people who would say they are anything but proud and anything other than this is the greatest nation to ever exist on this planet!
I have a feeling if the shoe was on the other foot, and it was a Repub admin going after liberal groups you would not be singing the same tune. Hypocrite much?
I am shaking my head here...the IRS was out of control, and you know they felt what they were doing was fine because the president made it obvious he was not going to punish anyone who went after his enemies...that man makes Richard Nixon look like a piker! I am sickened!
This is just one more example of how liberals have to block opposing ideas to win! Those who fear the ideas of the other side have already exposed weakness in their own views.
I love Mr. Reagan...perhaps now more than ever!
With what is being served in school cafeterias, who could blame the kids if they ate sunscreen?
I think the time has come to establish co-ops of some kind which are stocked with nutrient dense foods that provide the "hungry" or "food insecure" or whatever the term of the day is to get their tax-payer provided food. I seen Snappers in my grocery store eating better than working people--talk about inequality. They don't have a pot to pee in, but they sure eat well. On another point--the only people who can be judged are those of us who point to the ludicrous and call it what it is. If we say certain things should be banned from the SNAP program, we are intolerant, insensitive, racist, etc etc etc. Whoever decided people should not work for their food was obviously ignorant.

How do those even go together? Why should the wealthy be the ones to shoulder the entire tax burden? They earned the money, the poor didn't. Also, the poor ARE being screwed over--by handing them an unearned check, they become dependent and little more than a drain on society. Providing decent jobs is more important than simply giving money. If you would not simply hand money over to your kids, never requiring they work and gain skills while ensuring they won't try to find a job and become a productive member of society, why would you do that for the poor? Sticking your head in the sand and having zero expectations ensures they will remain poor, and no amount of government assistance is going to change that. The poor are being much more screwed over by the liberals than anyone could ever fathom.
