Today I went to the mail box and received my propaganda letter for those who claim to be 'pro-life', but from the contents of the letter they should have called themselves 'Anti-Choice' and 'Anti-Truth.

How This Life Legal Defense Foundation get away with these False Accusations is beyond me They Claim to be defenders of Civil Liberties, but yet, they are the ones who would Strip a Woman of her Right To Chose when to start her family and would Strip her and her husband of the choice of how many children they will have.

They Are Right about one thing--Time is not on their side--Only the older generations fear Women's Rights--They are the majority in the Un-holy Alliance between the Religious Right and The Big Businesses that Support the Tea Party.

Which reminds me, They, the Modern day Pharisees and the Modern day Sadducees must know of their roots--After all, Why else Would Bill Reilly Re-Write the life of Jesus in his book. As if the money changers that got Jesus so mad were tax collectors. As if there were not sacrifices in the Temple in those days.

Old Testament - The Five Offerings

"The Five Offerings in the Old Testament ... To state it another way, there were sacrifices of expiation (sin offerings and trespass offerings), consecration (burnt ..."
The tax was initially imposed by Roman Emperor Vespasian as one of the measures against Jews as a result of the First Roman-Jewish War of 66–73 CE. Vespasian imposed the tax in the aftermath of the Jewish revolt (Josephus BJ 7. 218; Dio Cassius 66.7.2). The tax was imposed on all Jews throughout the empire, not just on those who took part in the revolt against Rome. The tax was imposed after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE in place of the levy (or Tithe) payable by Jews towards the upkeep of the Temple. The amount levied was two denarii, equivalent to the one-half of a shekel that observant Jews had previously paid for the upkeep of the Temple of Jerusalem (Exodus 30:13). The tax was to go instead to the Temple of Capitoline Jupiter, the major center of ancient Roman religion. The fiscus Iudaicus was a humiliation for the Jews.[citation needed] In Rome, a special procurator known as procurator ad capitularia Iudaeorum was responsible for the collection of the tax.[2] Only those who had abandoned Judaism were exempt from paying it.

Personally, I find it more than just Ironic, down right evil that so many get so angry that women have access to birth control, yet time and time again, I have sat through one commercial after another advertising Testosterone therapy for men. WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT THAT MEN MUST KEEP THEIR SEX DRIVES IN HIGH GEAR, YET SO EVIL THAT WOMEN WOULD WANT TO HAVE SEX WITHOUT BEARING CHILDREN????



You had a state representative’s as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act.” —President Barack Obama referring to New Hampshire representative Bill O'Brien's comments on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).1
As the government shutdown enters its seventh day, the right wing has gone beyond any reasonable attempt to debate policy. Instead, far right republicans continue their reckless political ploy to undermine Obamacare and President Obama's authority. Meanwhile, workers and the most vulnerable among us are suffering as a result of their high-stakes gamesmanship. They want to destroy Obamacare not for what it does, but for what it represents. Placing access to healthcare on a continuum with slavery is unacceptable. We can expose the far right's dangerous agenda and not allow hateful rhetoric to shape public opinion.
The ACA reforms the entire healthcare industry by encouraging doctors and hospitals to give better care to more people, and puts the money saved into expanding coverage. This will lead to expanded preventive care for 7.3 million Black folks with private insurance, the 4.5 million with Medicare, and the nearly 7 million most vulnerable who previously lacked insurance.2
The facts about the ACA did not deter U.S. Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana, who agreed twice last week that the Affordable Care Act was worse than slavery.3 Rep. Fleming's comments are a slap in the face to his constituents. In the first two years after the ACA's passage, 206,000 people in Rep. Fleming's district received preventive services without paying any co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles. And as many as 39,000 children with preexisting health conditions can no longer be denied coverage by health insurers because of Obamacare.4
Paying the country’s bills is Congress' job, and as President Obama said, "You don't get to extract a ransom for doing your job."5 Together, we can hold the right wing responsible for its offensive rhetoric and challenge their destructive political tactics.
