Polls & Pills

Continuing with the full court press to keep his foot in the door of separation of church and state, Obama-ites are polling out all the stops.  Get it “polling” out all of the stops?

Public backs Obama in birth control fight, poll suggests

Obama, liberals, secularists, progressives, Democrats, and their ilk all love the battle started by Obama against the Catholic Church.  His latest shot (I’m not sure that it was his first) was to try, through Obamacare, to FORCE the Catholic Church to provide free services for contraceptive, sterilization, and certain prescriptions (i.e. the morning after pill) to all of their employees.  These services are directly contradictory to Catholic beliefs and teachings.  Needless to say the Catholics balked, screamed, and made Obama “back off,” but he really didn’t.  His response was to simply require the insurance companies provide the services.  As if the extra costs associated with these services won’t be passed along for the Church to pay.

News Briefs – Volume XXIX Land of the Free

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories.  This edition is all about America the land of the free.  The “free” used to refer to our God-given freedoms outlined in our founding documents, but the term has mutated over decades of nanny-state policies to mean what the government “gives” us for free.  There is perhaps no better continuing example of the progressive, left-winged, drive-by, main-stream media’s collusion with Democrats than its continuing dumbing down of Americans.  Although the scarier part is that many accept, even crave the handouts.
