We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I demand HHS do something, somewhere, somehow that makes it a law that I receive free Chic-fil-A classic chicken sandwiches and waffle fries.
Because so help me, if my wife makes me eat another goddamn “heart-healthy” Paprika cod fillet and endive salad dinner, I’ma shoot up a fucking Whole Foods, then use my Cold Steel San Mai to start cutting heads off of any dudes wearing sandals.
And yes, Mr Issa. I’d be willing to come before Congress and testify.
In his February 16 testimony to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, Connecticut, outlined the bishops’ opposition to the Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate. His full testimony follows.
For my testimony today, I would like to tell a story. Let’s call it The Parable of the Kosher Deli.
Once upon a time, a new law is proposed, so that any business that serves food must serve pork....
Once again we come to a situation which should have been(once was) avoided by a mutually agreed upon system of ethics. MZ Obama should have gone after the management of school cafeterias. It has been known in several states throughout the years that local cafeteria managers do "other things" with the money/product of food supplies. In other words the Restaurant Association has known for years that many cafeteria managers benefitted personally from providing poor quality lunches. Rather than pursue the parent with threats of being illegal--the administration should have had the courage to draft a law about corruption among cafeteria managers. Something that said, "if you lie about the food you are purchasing and if you provide poor quality meals--management will be punished!" Not the parents--sheesh!
I tried to follow the links and quotations in the "GOP’s Problem with Sex Could Cost Them in November" article.
What it is explicitly saying is this: If the Republican party doesn't get rid of Michelle Bachmann early in the primary season, it will have a big problem!
Beyond that, there isn't much there there. It reads like an "if only the candidates would have positions that match my own, the party would be successful with everyone" article. We could all do that, and few of us would be right.
