What has happened to our self-reliance?
Most of the editorials you read lately are about contraception. It may be a problem for some but in the “big picture” it is very, very small. Through asking dumb questions during the presidential debates the mainstream media has successfully got America talking about anything but the huge failures of the President Barack Obama regime. I even saw a recent letter defending stimulus spending, which, long ago, has been proven to be mostly wasted. You need look no further than the fact that they haven’t approved any more large stimulus programs to bail us out. There are those who would like to, including Obama, but even most liberal legislators would not vote for it.
Getting back to contraception, there are several complaints that women weren’t included in the talks in the House. Then you read in another article that the Democrat women walked out, hello, and the writer said that it was the right thing to do? Can you say “trying to have it both ways?”
This is a very ridiculous thing to be having a debate about when our national debt is well on its way to $20 trillion, Iran is in the process of acquiring nuclear capabilities and our heroic soldiers are being shot by Muslims who are upset about the way some Qurans were disposed of.
Let me put it simply, contraception should not be paid for by insurance or government, it should be paid for by those who use it. Isn’t that a novel concept, actually asking those who use something to pay for it themselves? The people who want insurance or government to pay for these items are the first to complain when their premiums or their taxes go up. When either insurance or government pays for something, you do realize it is the insured/taxpayers who are paying for other people’s personal choices not involving sickness or injury? With health costs going crazy why are we talking about doing things to increase them even more? It is nuts!
Sadly, our great country is headed for its demise if people don’t start taking responsibility for their own lives and stop asking government to take care of us from cradle to grave. Continuing on the path we are on will soon lead to the monetary bankruptcy of our great nation. There is no bank in the world large enough to bail us out.
