"Government," says Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., "is simply the name we give to the things we choose to do together." This, of course, is eminently untrue -- we do plenty of things together that don't involve the government, thank God. One can only imagine how dull and dreary our sex lives would be if they had to run through a DMV-style bureaucracy.
As the Obama Administration’s assault on religious liberties and individual freedom from the HHS mandate continues, the liberal, feminist blog Jezebel alerts readers that the injectable contraception shot, Depo-Provera, doubles a woman’s risk of breast cancer.
It is an anomaly to me to see the drift in government to control in micro-detail certain aspects of our society and yet determine to be hands-off on other key issues. I often am asked questions by the media on these choices. Recently the American public was given an edict that affects many religious non-profit organizations.
Mitt Romney slams heckler.
Romney responds to a student (falsely) equating freedom and happiness who wants free birth control.
In the heat of the Democrats' "We Love Women" campaign, the White House took a detour to testosterone land Tuesday.
What with liberal women constantly talking about their vaginas suddenly pretending to be offended by the word "slut," and conservatives pretending to be as pussified as liberals about the nasty names they've been called, I never got an answer to the most pressing question about Sandra Fluke.
The heated public debate about the HHS mandate requiring employers to cover contraception has brought out the worst in “feminist” organizations. It’s time to blow the whistle: They’ve resorted to creating outright fiction in order to fundraise and fear-monger. Sadly, upon examination, many of their claims go beyond the usual political spin, to outright untruths that are actually destructive to women’s empowerment.
Dear President Obama...
I, for one, was delighted when President Obama decided that all forms of birth control should be provided for free by insurance companies. There’s little doubt that every woman should have the right to unrestricted sexual activity without the burden of an unwanted child. More importantly, I’m now prepared to make my case to get free blood pressure medication included in my insurance plan.
Since President Obama attributed his reasons for calling Sandra Fluke last week as pertaining to his desire to see his own daughters Sasha and Malia follow in her footsteps, you have to wonder if he hates his daughters.
The Washington Post fancies itself a very influential newspaper, an opinion-shaper among the powerful D.C. ruling class. So when it editorialized last week about Rush Limbaugh's commentary concerning Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, some heads snapped back. It is very unusual for the poobahs at the Post to involve themselves with talk radio. It's kind of like Al Gore playing rugby: far too rowdy and dirty.
There is something special about a mother and her love.
