There are many reasons for suggesting that the moral imperative for contributing to the IRS has disappeared. Here are just a few.
For one, Obama will be spending our money on his personal holocaust, unlimited abortions and unregulated infanticides.
For two, Obama wishes for the military to pledge allegiance to him, not the American people.
For three, Obama has been appointing tax cheats to his Cabinet. Tom Daschle is the latest addition. He hasn’t been counting his donated limo service as income for years. Because of his nomination, as head of Health and Human Services Daschle has decided suddenly to pay up.
If the big guys don’t have to pay taxes, should you? Note, that they aren’t subjected to penalties for their malfeasance.
Are you motivated to go out, work those extra hours, pay big taxes for these fools to waste on their constituency?
Time to tell the IRS that you’re taking a LOT of vacation this year.
This is rich, and it isn’t going to look good for the fertility docs in California.
The Octuplets’ mom already had six kids, all produced by invitro fertilization. Mom decided to have the rest of her embryos implanted. They all survived. She refused selective reduction, (killing some of the babies, which is frequently in these kinds of cases).
When asked by an associate how she could afford all those invitro procedures, the mom said that she was being paid for them, according to this AP story.
Your friendly Pharmer has suspicions about this woman’s physicians’ decision to implant the large number of embryos, and therest of the medical personnel involved. Comment will be withheld until the rest of the story unfolds.
Stay tuned to what appears to be an ongoing medical experiment, on a very durable female. It will be interesting to learn who is the source of funding.
While it’s not appropriate to blame good ol’ Kaiser for this tragic event, and the terrible decision of the parents, a perusal of the initial story will indicate that the company deserves the negative public relations fallout, due to their poor interactions with the dismissed employees.
For example, when firing an employee, it is best not to suggest that he should have blown his brains out, even in an indirect manner. The employee might take the suggestion literally. This might cause negative repercussions, as in the current case of the Lupoe family.
My prediction from going over the news stories is that Kaiser Permanente is going to face some questions regarding adherence to HIPAA regulations.
This is from about 5 hours ago…… so the clock sez. A woman has just given birth to Octuplets in Kaiser Permanante Bellflower Medical Center, south of Los Angeles in California. The kids appear vigorous but are quite small. Weights range between 1.8 and 3.4 lbs, report the two docs, Karen Maples and Harold Henry.
The babies, six boys and two girls, are 9 weeks premature, and were delivered by C section. Prayers for these kids, so that they survive care at Kaiser Permanente.
Speaker of the House, Pelosi, is being roundly castigated for her statement in a Stephanopoulos interview that contraception is needed to cut costs in this declining economy. Remember that for the Democrats, any method is OK for reducing the number of children who require government assistance: birth control, abortion, and our new president has supported the practice of infanticide in his home state. Pelosi is convinced that the government cannot support the children of this class of dependent people who supported Obama. It’s necessary to make these people stop having babies. Killing off 50 percent of Black Babies in the U.S. is not enough. There needs to be further injection of federal funds (your tax dollars) into the family planning (abortion) industry. While the average age of Americans at death has risen to 78, Pelosi wishes to cut out the basis of the ponzi social security plan, by reducing the number of young people.
Obama promised more transparancy, and new restrictions on the access and use of lobbyists in his government.
The only problem is that he wanted to break his own rule, two days after announcing it. See, Obama wants to utilize a lobbyist (William Lynn) from defense contractor, Raytheon, as his deputy defense secretary. Yep. The guy has limited short term recall. He can’t remember his own rules for even a week.
OK, I’ve got it now…. Obama thinks this is a video game. He knows that the guys let loose from Guantanamo Bay prison have been going back to their old terrorist buddies, but I bet he likes that. Just like a video game, just reset it and play again.
Here is a revised estimate of the crowd size at the Inaugural ceremonies. Once predicted to be 4 million, the actual crowd seems to have been a good deal smaller, based upon estimates from the satellite views. WaPo gives various estimates in its article.
An account of the huge trash cleanup indicates that the crowd gathered to celebrate on Jan 20th did not leave a light carbon or garbage footprint. And below is a video that says it all, except for the port-o-let issue. Calculations from our school’s 8th grade algebra students reveal that NO WAY was 5000 port-o-lets enough to hold all the crap! We’re planning to suggest this intellectual exercise as an addition to the next edition algebra texts. Similar calculations of volume and capacity, suggested by the articles and video, are welcome.
