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!

War on Women

Posted by Troy on 26th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

Every time I hear the phrase “the war on women,” I have an instant thought: “Brainwashed Zombies.”

If there’s an actual war, you know it.  You don’t need Sandra Fluke out there telling you that Germany is at war with Poland in WWII.  Even metaphorically, you don’t need someone to tell it to you when you’re really being oppressed.  Again, you know it.  The blacks knew it during Jim Crow.  Some may have tried to live around it as best they could without raising a fuss, but they knew that it was  wrong.  So let’s just call the “War on Women” what it is: propaganda.

If someone says that to you ask, what constitutes a war on women?  They will probably tell you two things: they want abortion illegalized, and they want to do away with contraception.

The first, I cannot really deny.  Many on the Right would like to see abortion abolished.  However, this has nothing to do with what feminists would tell you.  Ask a feminist why the Right wants abortion illegalized, and the feminist would tell you that it is a mechanism to control women (same with birth control).  It is not.  It is completely a belief that life begins at conception.  If you believe this, then you have to think that abortion is immoral.  It’s that simple.  If you don’t believe that, then it’s merely a choice.  However, pro-choicers wish to have their cake and eat it too.  You see, if it really is a choice, then fathers of illegitimate children should be able to sue to force an abortion or, if the woman CHOOSES to continue the pregnancy, well, that’s HER choice.  As such, all the cost should fall on her.  Regardless of anyone’s desires on the Right, as long as Roe v Wade is the law of the land, there is no reason to worry about this.

The second is just silly.  No one wants to make contraception illegal.  No one wants to take it away.  The Right doesn’t want to force Catholics (and others) to provide medical services that disagree with their religion.  That’s all.  Adam Corolla said that “I love beer, but just because other people aren’t forced to buy my beer for me doesn’t mean I don’t have access.  It’s on me to provide that for myself.”  Paraphrasing there.  If you can’t afford birth control, cut out the data plan on your smart phone.  If that doesn’t work.  Go to the free clinic.  If that doesn’t work, tell your boyfriend or husband to provide birth control or else there is no sex.  You will be amazed at how fast he can provide it for you.  They might even go out and get a job.

Open a dialog.  Most of these poor fools don’t know they’re being used.

Long Live the Constitution!
