Brummett misses the boat on Obamacare again

The stooges join the “Women Haters” club and vow to have nothing to do with the fair sex. Larry marries a girl anyway and attempts to hide the fact from Moe and Curly as they take a train trip.

I could not resist responding to the column today at John Brummett, “Limbaugh and the he-man woman-haters club,” Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 3-6-12 (paywall).

In the article he noted, “A woman can argue for birth-control coverage in health-insurance policies without being [morally loose.]”

I would agree with Brummett here but I think that the real issue is religious liberty and it is being trampled on by Obamacare. How people are missing that is beyond me. As the government takes over more and more control of our lives these issues will continue to come up over and over. At least I got to post these two funny videos by the three stooges today and at least we can agree on how funny they were.

The ‘War on Women’ — a Rhetorical Distraction

Posted by Roger Pilon

Today POLITICO Arena asks:

Now that Rush Limbaugh has apologized, will voters see the Democrats’ “war on women” language as overkill?

My response:

We’re in the season of rhetorical overkill. Rush Limbaugh’s vile attack last week on Sandra Fluke was reprehensible. So too is the Democratic campaign to paint a Republican “war on women” — not least because it treats women as a monolithic class, ignoring the many women who grasp what’s at issue here — liberty.

ObamaCare is a major step toward socialized health care. You can pretend otherwise — the “war on women” rhetoric aims at that — but the coercive elements inherent in any socialized scheme come to the surface when conflicts like the one before us arise.

And it’s only the beginning. Soon enough, as costs to “the public” mount (the only costs that matter in socialized arrangements), Republicans will be talking about a “war on the elderly,” and they’ll be right. After all, “We’re all in this together.” We have that on high authority. Welcome to the world of all against all.

 

Religious Liberty: Obamacare’s First Casualty

Uploaded by on Feb 22, 2012

http://blog.heritage.org/2012/02/22/morning-bell-religious-liberty-under-attack/ | The controversy over the Obama Administration’s anti-conscience mandate and the fight for religious liberty only serves to highlight the inherent flaws in Obamacare. This conflict is a natural result of the centralization laid out under Obamacare and will only continue until the law is repealed in full.
