Wow. Just wow. The democrats just don’t get it. They think they are the supreme rulers of this nations, and the supreme rulers of free thought.
Also, again, no one is saying women can’t have birth control. Just that you can’t force someone to give up their beleifs. It’s not discrimination. What IS discrimination is saying if you have religious beleifs, you either have to give them up or not be allowed to own a business. THAT is discrimination, folks, and that is exactly what the democrats are trying to do.
They are now trying to pass a law that would require businesses provide contraceptives. Um… didn’t the Supreme Court just strike such a law down?
This is the waste they create. The waste of time they focus on. Iraq is falling, the border is a mess, the economy is still a mess, unemployment still high, and THIS is what they choose to focus on?
Maybe the republicans should make a deal. They’ll vote for this bill, provided abortions be outlawed since all contraceptives would be provided free of charge. Because then, there would be no need for abortion.
But you’ll never see that happening. Why?
Because the democrats feel folks should be able to do whatever they want and have no responsibility for their actions. They think everyone else should pay for it. And this is where the insanity from these folks come from. They want that, but they also want to tell you what you can and can’t do in other aspects (large soda ban, anyone?)
Which is why it is indeed your boss’s business. If they are the ones paying out the bulk of the insurance premiums (and face it, check your paystubs, you boss certainly is the one paying for it), it most certainly IS their business. Anytime you have to pay for something, you have a right to know what it’s for and the right (guaranteed by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights) to NOT have to pay for something that is against your religion.
Why is it, that only a certain group of people feel their rights always outweigh the rights of others? I have a right to keep and bear arms. I do NOT however, have the right to demand that others pay for those arms, nor do I have the right to use that right to end someone’s life who is not threatening mine or my family’s.
This is why we’re in a heap of trouble, folks. When we start thinking that our perceived rights are more important than someone else’s actual rights. This is also why I feel libertarianism is the only political ideology that makes actual sense. The basis is, you can do what you want, as long as it doesn’t affect someone else’s rights. By demanding someone give up their religious freedom so you can have “free” birth control, is well, just plain arrogant, selfish and damn childish.
You may not like it, but it’s just the Grim Truth!
