The puppet show the Democrat party is putting on is quite enchanting. They are masters of creating a narrative of their own choosing and distracting the focus from actualities. They have paraded a 30 year old activist/ law student to claim she is the picture of "every women" who has suffered under shoddy woman's health coverage and told tells of woe of other female students suffered such oppressive yoke ... Of a lack of insurance coverage for contraception...Which is not the actual debate . . . Despite the fact that media has done it's very best to report is if that is the problem ... The actual problem is the federal government doesn't have the ability to force religious institutions to insure persons to obtain services that contradict their doctrines and conscience due to the free exercise clause of the First admenment of our Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Realizing they would not survive that battle in the general public with a coalition of faiths that rallied to the side of the Catholic Church and their institutions, the Democrats swiftly changed gears and tried to race the media over to a false argument, that women are being denied healthcare, under a charade of an official setting for the fateful testimony of that young woman was not in any official federal hearing or committee & with a new found cause celeb in Ms. Sandra Fluke A devout Pro Abortion advocate.
So this drone of " news" has carried on now for several weeks and recently culminated in a stupidity contest between the bombastic Rush Limbaugh and standard bearers of the left in faux horror over inappropriate analogies. And that in itself is a whole other conversation in itself. And that is the point.
Dancing around this conversation means not needing to address the crucial issues that are slowly crushing the population.
President Obama ' s policy regarding the energy sector is aiding the rising cost of gasoline and in turn affecting the cost of consumer goods
The Justice Department has done everything but bury it's head below the sand in investigating itself (note* why the hell is there not a special prosecutor investigating?) on what essentially was an illegal war on Mexican citizens w/ project Fast and Furious.
The swift passage of new bill that seeks to strip yet more of our first admenment rights ( an over zealous reaction law written in the wake of the Arizona shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords)
But by all means... Carry on watching the puppet show... I am sure it is just too fascinating to look away from.
Peace b w/ u all
