Hobby Lobby Contraception Decision

Posted by Troy on 30th June 2014 in Current Events

It was a good decision, in a series of good decisions from the Supreme Court of late.

What did they decide?  They decided that small corporations can decide not to provide contraception methods that do not jive with their religious beliefs.

What’s the difference between a large corporation and a small one?  They didn’t say, but I would say that the large corporation is a conglomerate and must be deemed to hold the same morals as the underlying society (which by and large approves of contraception).

Of course, the Left is already decrying this as taking away a woman’s right to choose.  Hell no.  It does no such thing.  A woman can choose any method of birth control they want…they just have to pay for it themselves.  Have we forgotten that not having someone else pay for you does not equate to you being unable to get it.  I have a right to buy a Lamborghini…I just have no ability to pay for it on my own and have yet been able to make the government pass a law where someone else has to buy one for me.

Why have we decided that companies have to provide health care for their employees?  They are employees, not children.  Here’s a question…do people need healthcare?  Eh…debatable.  But what we DO need is food and housing.  Well, definitely food.  So why don’t corporations have the obligation to feed and house their employees…  Of course, we did that once.  It was called slavery.  You work for a company and they provide food, housing, clothing…  Now we are about to do the same, but this time the government will eventually hold the chains.

Freedom comes at a cost.  That cost is paying your own bills.  If you’re not doing that, you live at the mercy of someone else, and you will never have true freedom.  I thought everyone learned that growing up.  ”As long as you live under my roof, you live under my rules.”  Now we DEMAND to live under someone else’s roof.  I will never understand the new generation…

Long Live the Constitution!

Bleep the UN

Posted by Troy on 14th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

The UN has determined birth control to be a human right.  To this, I say BLEEP the UN, and to that end, this contraception could come in handy.  This is the same people that want to take away the right of countries to declare war without going through the UN.  They also want to take way the right to keep and bear arms from private citizens.  Why should the UN or any other country care if we have guns?  What business is that of theirs?  They also wish to limit freedom of speech in regards to Islam.  Infringement of speech is infringement of speech.

There are precious few rights.  These are the rights that exist free of other people.  You have the right to your own thoughts.  You have the right to own the fruits of your labor.  You have the right to protect yourself.  You have the right to procreate.  You have the right to do anything to your own body, as who could stop you?  You have the right to speak.  You have the right to associate yourself with whomever you want.  You have the right to worship whoever you want.  You have the right to read and cultivate any ideas you may wish.  In addition to this, the Constitution grants us the right to trial by jury, freedom not to incriminate ourselves, freedom from quartering of troops, freedom from excessive fines and punishments, and a few other points here and there.

Not everything is a right.  The only things that are rights are those things which are provided to us for free by nature.  I have the right to bear arms, but I do not have the right to demand someone provide me with arms.  You have the right to be able to buy contraception, but you damn sure don’t have the right to force someone else to buy it for you.  Ya dig?

Why are we even in the UN?  It’s an organization that fights us every step of the way.  They hate us.  They use us.  Worst of all, they give our enemies a direct say in our affairs.  Can we just get out of this stupid club?

Long Live the Constitution!

Why Catholics Supporting Obama are Hypocrites

Posted by Troy on 9th November 2012 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Catholics chose to support Obama over Romney in the past election.  This makes them hypocrites, and I shall prove why.

Why do Catholics support Democrats?   Most of them will tell you that it is because the Democrats help the poor, and this is what the church is most interest in doing.  This is, of course, stupidity.  No, that is not what the church is interested in doing.  Technically speaking, the church is interested in “saving” people.  I should imagine that Jesus would say that it is better to be saved and starve than to be fat and burn in the pits of hell for all eternity.  Besides that, I don’t believe that Jesus would think that the government should steal (take our money at the tip of the sword) to perform “good works.”  No, that’s supposed to come from the heart.

The government is not the place to do works of charity anyway.  When a church feeds someone or when a Christian feeds someone, it is likely that that person will see that it is a good religion and will convert and be saved.  What happens when the government feeds someone?  They become dependent on the government.  Without proper supervision and force, that person is much more likely to become a leech.  You don’t feel guilty about stealing from the government or from a big company the way you do when you steal from a church or from an individual person.  Just common knowledge.  The bigger the entity, the more justified you feel in leeching.  So the church is promoting dependence and enslavement to the government which at every turn seeks to destroy all public displays of religion.

Speaking of which, then you have the contraception mandate.  Now, I freely admit that most Catholics are hypocrites on this and use birth control, and I have no problem with that.  However, the church itself thinks it’s a sin.  By refusing to stand up to the government on this, Catholics have basically told the Pope, “Fuck off and buy us birth control, old man!”  Way to go guys!  And for what?  So that someone wouldn’t have to pay out $10 a month for their own birth control?  Skip 2 cups of coffee.  You’re there!  Downgrade your cable or cell phone.  Boom!  You want birth control?  Allocate your funds accordingly.  It’s no one’s obligation to buy it for you if they don’t want to.  You’ve traded religious freedom for $10 a month.  What kind of Judas are you?  At least he got 30 pieces of silver.  With the way Obama’s destroyed the dollar, that’s gotta be worth a LOT more than $10.  Learn to negotiate better.

Then there’s gay marriage.  Look forward to being forced to accept gay marriage.  They could even force you to do it in your church.  They’ve already proven with the birth control they don’t care about your religious beliefs.  Gays have a right to be married, and they have a right to be Catholic, ergo, they have a right to be married in a Catholic church.  Personally, this issue is not important to me in the least, but supposedly Catholics are against it, but as I said, it doesn’t appear that they are against anything too bad.

Finally, there’s abortion.  So you want to help feed the poor?  Over a million abortions a year.  Do you think the government feeding the poor saves over a million lives a year?  You are net killing people by your political affiliations.  The touted number of abortions due to rape and incest?  10,000.  Yep, there ya go.  Facts and figures.

I have nothing more to say to you.  Reconcile your political and religious beliefs.  At least Muslims are consistent.

Long Live the Constitution!

What a Fluke!

Posted by Troy on 5th March 2012 in Current Events

Sandra Fluke went in front of Congress to testify about the repressive Georgetown policy which states that they will not cover the cost of contraception.  Rush Limbaugh weighed in by calling her a slut for needing $3,000 in contraception over a three year period (roughly 3,000 condoms or 2.74 a day).  And here is Swamp Fox Press’s take!

Her number is way off.  It is clear that she just pulled a number out of the air and then whined about this imaginary number.  The fact of the matter is, with very little research, I found an outlet that would allow me to buy three years worth of birth control pills for $650 or 22% of her quoted price.  Damn, I’m great at home economics.  I hope for her sake that she sticks to law and not math because, as Barbie put it, “Math is hard!”  Still, a cheaper method would be the condom unless, as Rush commented, one is a total slut.  At $1 a condom, I would argue that most people would spend less than $300 a year.  An even cheaper method would be for her to tell her partner, “I’m not having sex with you unless you provide contraception.”  The man would instantly rob a liquor store, sell crack, or possibly even get a job, but he would make it happen.  Oh yes, he would find a way to make it happen.  We’re good at that.  Trust me!

The second thing I want to talk about is why is it that she thinks she should be able to choose to go to a Catholic college and they should bend their policies to match her preferences?  There are plenty of other law schools out there.  If she disagrees with their policies, I suggest she do one of two things:  find a different college or shut up and deal with it.  It is childish and whiny to demand that others bend to your will.  They didn’t enact this policy after she joined the school, so she has nothing to gripe about.

The third thing I want to talk about is Rush Limbaugh.  I don’t feel sorry for him.  He’s fine.  He’ll get other sponsors.  The fact of the matter is that I get sick of all this fabricated outrage.  Now anytime anybody says anything, some organized group pretends to be offended so that the leadership of said groups can get what they want.  In a lot of ways, we have become real sheep.

The fourth thing I would like to talk about is that she clearly had an agenda.  In addition to her inaccurate numbers, did you notice that everyone this woman ever met has befallen tragedy due to lack of birth control?  That is amazing!  I know of only one person who had tragedy befall them due to lack of birth control.  That was a pregnancy, but they were married, so it was cool.  Still, I would say I know at least ten women.  At the very least!  Heck, I probably know even more than that.  The odds of tragedy not befalling someone seems pretty good.  Clearly, she wants the notoriety that this has given her.  Bear in mind that she is a law student.  You don’t think that she’s looking at how this is going to pad her resume?  Besides, Rush apologized to her, and she turned that apology down.  This means one of two things:  Either she is childish and will not accept an apology, or she will not accept an apology because she was not really offended and it was always about her agenda and going against Rush furthers her mission.  Guess which one I think it is.

The final thing I want to talk about is the religions freedom aspect.  As I pointed out before, the Left believes in freedom of religion…as long as it does not interfere with their policies or sensibilities.  Again, your religion is little more than a harmless fairy tale you must put aside for the greater good.

Long Live the Constitution!

Contraception Mandate

Posted by Troy on 13th February 2012 in Current Events

I’ve been asked to comment on the President’s contraception mandate.  As you may have heard, the Catholic church has come out steadfast against the measure.  This is particularly interesting since Catholics voted for Obama in 2008 and typically vote for Democrats.  Obama has tried to walk it back by saying that Catholic institutions don’t have to pay for contraception but the insurance companies that the  institutions contract with will pay for the contraception.  Of course, this is a meaningless shell game.  If the insurance companies are on the hook for contraception, they are going to factor that in when computing the institution’s premiums.  As such, Catholics will be paying for contraception as they are paying the insurance company that is required to provide contraception.

First, I would like to discuss how this particular issue is a good indication of how the Left views religion.  To them, religion is a fine thing for people to believe in as long as those beliefs do not interfere with their agenda.  In this, they view religion as a harmless fairy tale that some people indulge in–silly, but harmless.  It is perfectly fine to give lip service to freedom of religion, but when they speak of it, they interpret the Constitution as providing freedom FROM religion.  This is to say, under their definition of freedom of religion, you must be free from being exposed to another person’s religion regardless of the vehicle for that message.  This is shown when they will not allow a valedictorian to mention God in their speech.

The classic example of when people freak out about religion is when it comes to a sick child.  This is where my views differ vastly from the mainstream of Americans.  Most Americans believe in freedom of religion…until it offends their sensibilities.  When these cases occur, people on both sides of the political fence demand that the family subject their kids to medical treatments which are against their religion.  They don’t even consider who is to pay for this treatment.  I wonder if people would be so willing to force these treatments if the taxpayers were to bear 100% of the costs.  Of course, in the not so distant future, this will be the case under Obamacare.  People who believe that the children should be taken away and forced into these treatments will claim that children do not have the ability to choose a religion for themselves.  They are too young to make up their own minds.  However, in these things (religion, beliefs, values), we have always allowed parents to choose what is best for their children.  Here again, we are saying that people have the right to choose what values to instill in their children…as long as it does not offend our sensibilities.  Here is the question though:  These people believe that medical care is prohibited by God.  Receiving this care damns their soul to Hell.  So…what if it turns out they are right?  You have just damned their souls to Hell against their will.  Maybe it is God’s will.  Maybe the kid you save is the next Hitler, and God was taking him out of the world.  Regardless, the one truest test in someone’s belief is to face death itself.  Perhaps God is asking a sacrifice from the parents much in the way that he asked of Abraham.  Sometimes proving your faith means dying, and if you are religious, your belief in God should trump your fear of death.

The last thing I would like to point out is how this is a clear indication as to why Obamacare is unconstitutional.  The government cannot have the power to tell anybody that they have to buy any product just by virtue of being alive.  In the face of this power, it is clear that all other rights must fall to the wayside or only exists at the discretion of the ruling class.  This is called tyranny.  If you live under a king that allows you to dance, you are admitting that the king has the ability to tell you that you may not dance.  Living under the rule of a benevolent dictator is still living under the rule of a dictator.  Just because you may approve of the king’s decree doesn’t mean he is any less tyrannical.  I’m sure that there were many people in Germany that thought Hitler was doing a great job just like there were plenty in North Korea that thought King Jong Il was a fair man or that Saddam really stood up for Middle Eastern values.  They were still tyrants.

I want to give my congratulations to the Catholic Church and all Catholics who have stood their ground.  Never give up your rights.  ”Once Liberty is lost, it’s lost forever,” John Adams.
