The government has no right to infringe on the medical choices of women under any circumstances. The government should not be in the medical business unless it is going to start providing health care to the close to ten million American children that suffer needlessly without it. What will it take before the population reacts to this up-swell in legislated pseudo morality?
There was a recent comment on this blog that essentially said, ‘Who cares about the wiretapping?” There are two arguments that go along with that. One is that we need to trade some of our freedoms in order to be more secure as a society. The other is it is not that big a deal and there are more important things to worry about. To the first I give you Benjamin Franklin, who said, “They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” To the other I say it is a daisy chain to fascism. If we don’t halt the slide away from personal freedom now, we may never be able to again. How far are we from a suspension of due process in order to fight terror? Oh wait, we are already there, the government is listening to us without first getting approval from the courts and showing probable cause. How is this not important? At the very least, why aren’t we asking a special prosecutor to investigate whether laws were broken by the White House and The President? We spent something like 30 million dollars to find out the Clintons made a bad land deal and former President Clinton likes to get head. Isn’t it worth a little cash to find out if President Bush and Vice President Cheney broke the law and wiped their asses with our freedom? I think so, considering we are spending 80 billion a month or more in Iraq.
This is really disturbing. Can we please see some data before we start freaking people out? The real problem is, what if this Canadian college is right? Every time we walk into Panera, Starbucks, and our freaking houses we could be exposing ourselves to harmful radio waves. “Hey Honey, I am going to work.” “Don’t forget your radiation suit dear.” At least I don’t carry a cell phone.
