What better way to renew blogging activities than with a BwD favorite, Sarah sez.
One in a series that takes a look at some of the wild, zany and madcap things said by the former governor of Alaska.
Recently, Palin was asked her opinion of provisions within ObamaCare that would force health insurance providers to cover cover birth control, contraception and drugs that could cause abortions. This, of course, would be in conflict of the tenants of many faith-based providers.
“Those who dispute that characterization “may not like the language,’’ she said, “but the truth is what I said. I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it . . . but they have this conscience thing” that “insists put women at physical risk, although Catholic providers strongly disagree.”(italics, ours)
Damn those Catholics are their dammed consciences!
As Allah Pundit put it, perhaps Palin's just jealous they possess something she doesn't.
What's that you say? That wasn't Palin spewing that drivel?
But, of course, it was that Sarah sez stalwart, that glittering jewel of colossal ignorance, the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi. She never fails to disappoint!
Two things: 1) How many faith-based insurance providers including those possessing Catholic-centric, pro-life sensibilities will drop coverage altogether rather than violate beliefs at the core of their faith? That doesn't sound like a recipe for keeping your insurance if you like it, now does it? And 2) precisely how does mandating additional coverage bend the health care cost downward as promised by the proponents of ObamaCare?
ObamaCare is so god-awfully corrupt, contemptible and counter-productive on so many different levels and in so many different degrees, we will get fall down drunk in righteous
UPDATE #1: Since we're stuck with it for the time being, and instead of just bitching and whining about it, why not be constructive and try to improve on it, is our thought, right? With that in mind, we liberated KT's recommendation from the comment section:
Parts of ObamaCare could be made really green by collaborating with the EPA and the Department of the Interior. Imagine how we could nourish the ecosystem in the wilderness by spreading the puree of millions of vivisected babies around our National Park System every year!
That's some of the can-do spirit that made this country great. Thanks, KT!
