“This is a big #^@&(N deal”…as Joe Biden would say. A Federal court is blocking Obamanator’s HHS mandate for O’Brien Industrial Holdings, which operates several smaller companies: Christy Industrial Services, Christy Minerals Co., and Christy Refractories Co. The owner, Frank O’Brien is a Catholic, who wishes to adhere to his religious beliefs in operating his businesses.
The three judge panel of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a preliminary injunction which blocks the HHS mandates unconstitutional effects upon this privately owned company. Among the many lawsuits challenging the HHS mandate, this is the first decision rendered by a Federal appeals court.
Frank Manion of the American Center for Law and Justice is handling this case, which was first dismissed by a Federal district court judge before it was taken before the Eighth Circuit Court. The ACLJ has filed two other lawsuits against the Federal Government regarding the HHS mandate, and numerous Amicus briefs for other court challenges.

Inspired by the latest artistic depiction of Obama as savior, Glenn Beck presents his very own work: FLObama, which features immersion of the presidential image in “countrytime” colored fluid, at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, no doubt.
Watch for yourself.
Of course, Beck points out that the Obama Crucified -“Truth” artist, (Michael D’Antuono) the “Piss Christ” artist, and he, as the “FLObama” creator, all are making use of the First Amendment free speech rights.
We are waiting for the screams, wailing and gnashing of teeth coming from the left, as “FLObama”, aka “Obama in PeePee” is sold for its rather large asking price.
Update quoted from The Blaze: “The popular online auction site eBay has yanked a piece of artwork done by Glenn Beck citing its belief that the project featured an Obama figurine floating in actual urine (it was not, however).”
“Bids can now be emailed in the subject line to the following email address set up by Beck: email@example.com“
That thirty-something Georgetown Student who had enough money for the 50,000 per year tuition at her upscale law-school, but who cried for public support of her birth control pills, could be Time Magazine’s person of the year!!
Pharmer might have been more sympathetic had Fluke cried for public support of her valacyclovir, clindamycin, metronidazole, ceftriaxone, azithromycin, doxycycline, benzathine penicillin, imiquimod, or whatever antiretroviral she might need in the future. After all, those are used to treat infectious disease states, which she might inadvertently obtain while plying her wares.
Time’s symbol of our times is a whining, useless, dysfunctional female, crying for tax support of her demand for recreational drugs and devices.
It must be the Year of the Parasite.
Will we also be expected to buy her personal massager, once she becomes so nastaaay that no guy will get near her?
You can cast your vote for or against the parasite of the year right HERE.
Pharmer hangs with COGforlife, the vaccine ethics watchers, and still missed the presence of this headline. The excuse is that she was setting up a new computer.
Flu vaccine does not have the ethical liabilities which the COGforlife group monitors. This particular story, which is not new, is upsetting the libertarian types, who think that vaccines ought to be voluntary.
Patricia Maloney explains how table 102-0536 of Statistics Canada can be filtered to show only those perinatal deaths resulting from live birth abortion. The add remove option can be used to eliminate all causes of death except termination of pregnancy affecting fetus and newborn. (Note that the table’s default 5 year period is increased to 10 years.)
Logically, if you combine criteria of terminations affecting fetus and newborn with perinatal deaths, you get Live Birth Abortions, previously known as infanticides.
Click those links and figure it out for yourself. The grand total is 491 infanticides recorded by Statistics Canada during years 2000-2009.
Everyone is all abuzz over the 5% reduction in abortions shown in the 2009 CDC data. Instead they should be digging a bit deeper to see if the data really represents reality. Some pro-lifers target the reporters who expected an increase in abortions due to the economy. It’s true that poverty for women rose in 2009 and continues to do so.
The CDC is only able to count reported abortions, and therefore the data is necessarily incomplete. State laws requiring abortion reporting to a central agency vary from non-existent to un-enforceable.
The opportunity to induce home abortions and have them completed at hospitals has increased. These events cannot be reported as abortions unless the mom admits to doing something illegal, or accuses someone else of doing something illegal to her. Internet commerce has made home abortion chemistry much more accessible than in the past. Therefore it is unlikely that any numbers reported by the CDC are available. More recently Ulipristal acetate (Ella) has become available with online prescribing, providing a newer home abortion option using accumulated doses.
It should be noted that even without the above consideration, the CDC data on surgical plus mifepristone abortion is not comprehensive.
So far the joyful articles reporting the CDC abortion data of 2009 did not mention the LIMITATIONS section of the report, part of which is quoted below. Note that the CDC only reports 65 -69% of the abortions which are reported by the Alan Guttmacher Institute. Read on:
“The findings in this report are subject to at least four limitations. First, because reporting requirements are established by the individual reporting areas (17), the collection of data varies, and CDC is unable to obtain the total number of abortions performed in the United States. During the period covered by this report, the total annual number of abortions recorded by CDC was 65%–69% of the number recorded by the Guttmacher Institute (12,59), which uses numerous active follow-up techniques to increase the completeness of the data obtained through its periodic national census of abortion providers (12). Although most reporting areas collect and send abortion data to CDC, this information is given to CDC voluntarily. Consequently, during 2000–2009, seven of the 52 reporting areas did not provide CDC data on a consistent annual basis, and for 2009, CDC did not obtain any information from California, Delaware, Maryland, or New Hampshire.***** In addition, whereas most of the reporting areas that send abortion data to CDC have laws requiring medical providers to submit a report for every abortion they perform to a central health agency, in New Jersey and the District of Columbia, medical providers submit this information voluntarily (16). As a result, the abortion numbers these areas report to CDC are incomplete.††††† Moreover, even in states that legally require medical providers to submit a report for all the abortions they perform, enforcement of this requirement varies (60). Consequently, several other reporting areas tend to provide CDC with incomplete numbers.”
Tommy Christopher is afraid that the republican hope for 2016, Marco Rubio, will be savaged by the media if he doesn’t know which magic meme of the day to recite when questioned about matters of faith and science. This is politics in the era of Obamigula. Of special concern is a GQ interview asking Rubio how old he thinks the Earth is. Rubio gave a decent answer, mentioning that the age of the earth is in dispute, and that it has nothing to do with the current economic problems of the U.S. That’s not magic enough for Christopher.
Journalosts who have zero training or understanding of the scientific method, seem endlessly to bloviate and “redund-iate” on matters of science, thereby lowering the IQ of their readers.
Normal people, to Christopher (not his real name) are those who think that they know how old the earth is by reading a single one of the theories about its age.
A person who has a real training in science would know that the age of the earth is not definitively determined from available evidence, with this being apart from the religious body of creation allegories, parables or metaphors. However, to be “normal” in Christopher’s mind is to accept one possible theory of the earth’s age and declare it to be “fact”.
We have endless other “normal” people, whose intelligence has been attenuated by reading journalostic output, who are ready to gut the world economies, due to a belief in anthropogenic global warming (now called climate change). Fraud after fraud has been perpetrated by global -warming-climatologists, yet the faith of the “normal” remains unshaken.
The idea that stress of violence is not conducive to fertility has been morphed into a mechanism of “sperm killing magic” by the medically illiterate journalost, linked above, and then falsely attributed to Todd Akin. Other journolosts, not criticized above, have actually promulgated the idea that rape is a process which increases fertility, from rape claim data acquired in countries where premarital sex is still bears considerable social stigma. Other U.S. studies have been cited, which were carried out after 1993, when a rape claim would bring medicaid funding for abortion. Such a situation of conditionally funded abortion has made Illinois rather famous for rape. (Christopher’s “Normal” people wouldn’t understand the problem with such study designs.)
Christopher joins the chorus of the ignorant, still ripping on Sarah Palin, and earns the undying disrespect of yours truly, who fully understands why Palin might not want to read their output. She was exposed to training in their methodology of crap-sausage production.
Hurt journalostic feelings is likely the reason why the chorus still has their knives out for Palin.
