Folks, when you try to look at life through a lens of reason, logic, and Godly philosophy it is sometimes hard to have fun. That's been my week seeing and listening to the abject lunacy that is on display in "political" discourse in America. How on earth has the American political machine, the one that was built by great minds of people like Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, etc, sunk to the level it has?
We've been inundated by a straw man from the media all week that somehow the evil Catholics are trying to take away the right to obtain contraception while the American government tried to force Catholic run medical providers to provide items that are against their religious convictions. So we have a bunch of people whining about everyone else not paying for something that is not guaranteed them according to any American document whatsoever. Then the very government that is supposed to enforce the base document our law is founded on (the constitution) tries to force religious people to not be able to exercise one of their religious tenets. Are you able to fathom this utter nonsense? Whiny immature unthinking people demand that we pay for and/or provide a commercial product FOR THEM even if it is against the exercise of our religion. Are you kidding me? What kind of brain defect or mental illness can lead to this kind of thinking?
To summarize this insanity, we have people who say nobody has a right to interfere with what they do with their sex life or when they do it demand that other people provide for this sex life that they don't have any right to interfere with in the first place. What? Then they claim that it's a basic right that they're being denied that other people aren't already paying for these commercial products that they need to have sex without leading to the natural end of sex. Then these people who are so adamant about the "separation of church and state" claim that people who have a moral and religious reason to NOT provide these things to screw their free exercise of religion (no pun intended) and buy them their damn birth control.
Then, the lady who is in charge of the health department of our government comes out and says that this practice that leads to fewer taxpayers, fewer people paying into the system, will be good for the system and its monetary intake. Hahaha.
This is what is being talked about on the mainstream news and in mainstream political discourse in the United States of America. This is the nation that at one time founded the most successful political system in history. The rational man can only conclude that lunatics, psychopaths, imbeciles, nitwits, fools, etc are in the positions of the most power and the most influence.
There just aren't words to express this psychopathy. It is definitely hard to be a logical and rationally minded person in this world today.
I just noticed something in the transcript of Ms. Fluke.
Ms. Fluke says her friend who has polycystic ovarian syndrome couldn't get a contraceptive that would regulate her hormones under Georgetown's health insurance regulations. Due to this, she had to have surgery to have one of her ovaries removed.
According to a gynecologist, monthly name brand birth control pills for this kind of thing are ~ $100.00. At Wal-Mart or Target (I hear there's one just near Georgetown), you can get a monthly generic supply for $9! But Ms. Fluke would have us believe that while she couldn't afford this medicine, she could afford the Oophorectomy...which is like $7,000.00.................................
Logic right there
