More ACA and Sandra Fluke

I decided not to post every news link on the fiasco that the Affordable Care Act is so far on my Facebook page. I already have so many! I say so far, because I feel it being Pres. Obama’s signature legislation, the administration will do the honest and the dishonest to keep it from remaining a permanent fiasco. Well, I saw a  news links today about HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius trying sign someone up and the healthcare website crashed. That will make it to mypage you can view it here

I know I am getting pretty frequent with ACA posts on this blog too! Well,  I could not resist the following ACA related meme from Liberal Logic 101.

It should be no surprise that there are plenty of folks out there who have no problem with  the use of your tax money paying for the contraceptives so single women like Ms. Sandra Fluke can obtain them free of cost to have sex.

No Longer A Democrat but Watched the Democrat Convention

I watched the Democratic convention. It is the 2nd time watching as a Conservative Republican. I see that my growth in conservatism has really shot way up through listening to the convention speeches. What I heard from the speeches angered me. To think, I use to be a Democrat!  Socialism is growing in that political  party.

When I was a Democrat,  the  party beliefs that I did not go along with, I ignored. I see that going on within my Democratic family, relative and friend circle. They don’t support Democratic social wedge issues such as gay marriage, using their tax money for free birth control, and abortion, but they strongly see the Democrats as being  inclusive of their race and having the back of the everyday working person. For those two reasons, they ignore the social stuff and are even trying to ignore the taking out of God and recognition of the capital Israeli city, Jerusalem,  the loud verbal “nos” voiced 3 times against putting them back into the platform and the booing when God and recognizing Israel were re-instated. But they really can’t quite do that.

One of my family members fell in love again with Bill Clinton and feels his speech should be played over and over. Hearing Clinton, made being a Democrat okay again for her. Now she is closing me off when I bring up that what he said is not coming up well under fact checks. For an example, go here to see what the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) said about one of Clinton’s fiscal assertions and for another fact check go here. She is upset that the critical assessment of Pres. Obama’s speech is not that good.

I do not know how those in my circle can ignore all the numerous speeches (even the one from the First Lady) including support for “a woman’s right to choose” which is code for the right to choose to kill the unborn baby. They also bandied about women’s reproductive rights which is also code for abortion. My 86-year-old mother was not picking up on those code words. I had to explain them and even tell her that when she heard, “to be free to love whom ever you want/choose,” that was code for homosexual love.  Her reaction was, “What, oh my!”

Well, I am looking forward to the debates, because quite honestly, I think the Democrats got more voting juice out of their convention than the Republicans, who were excellent. Of course,  I hope my assertion is incorrect. The Democrats did just what I said in a previous post. They played on the emotional and the racial heartstrings and even the sexual. Really, that Sandra Fluke wanting taxpayers to supply woman such as herself (single) with free birth control! Many of the every day working people are seeing the Democrats/Government as their saviors and don’t care about the national debt and the economy in general when it comes to government spending and taxing to keep them from going under. Well, that’s another whole blog post.

If I was still a Democrat, the speeches I heard at this Democrat convention would be propelling me to the Republicans. Because of my continual growth as a political junkie, regardless of who will be president and my increasing disdain for the Democratic Party, God willing, I will be watching both the Republican and Democratic 2016 political conventions and maybe become a delegate at a Republican convention before I get to be too old.

The Limbaugh/Fluke Controversy and the Selective Outrage

People on the liberal left side are jubilant over Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy. He called the single Ms. Fluke a slut and a prostitute for speaking in favor of health care insurers providing free contraceptives before an unofficial congressional committee. I am hearing and reading  that he is toast! There are people out there partying over the groundswell that Mr. Limbaugh is experiencing in the loss of at least 26 sponsors and 2 dropped stations as of this posting.  He is talking replacement of departing sponsors.

I am not into personal attacks and name calling; therefore, I feel Mr. Limbaugh was “over the top”  wrong with the misogynist name calling, but he did apologize. If anything should happen to him, it should be a suspension like the one liberal, leftist Ed Schultz took for calling conservative talker, Laura Ingraham a slut on his radio program (he also apologized for going too far on Ms. Ingraham).

This selective outrage over Rush Limbaugh is all political and it is working in the affirmative for the Democratic liberal lefties. Mr. Limbaugh fell into their trap and they are positively spinning this controversy and gaining support which will lead to votes for a 2nd term for the Obama administration. I say selective, because where was this groundswell of outrage over Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann for calling Michelle Malkin a mashed up bag of meat with lipstick and Bill Maher for calling Sarah Palin a cu#t and Michele Bachmann a tw%t among other names. Have you ever heard any apologies from Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Maher on their misogynist name calling? Read about leftist misogynist name callers from someone on their side here.

I conclude with one final thing on Sandra Fluke. She said on the TV program, The View that the contraceptive coverage that she desires does not take taxpayer money. This is true, but Ms Fluke a law student is looking for health care insurers  to provide free contraceptive coverage for college students.  Well, that means higher cost for insurers which then gets passed on higher coverage costs and cuts for you.
