Petulant Party Pooper

The government remains 85 percent functional during the so-called “shutdown”.  Picking and choosing what is closed during the shutdown is the job of the executive branch, which is the government entity which enforces rules and regulations.  Additional money is actually being used to enforce the shutdown, with examples to follow:

Cones are put up to block scenic overlooks on the roadside, which normally allow drivers to view Mt. Rushmore safely.

The petulant one spends money to block the views of Mt. Rushmore

People are being driven out of their vacation homes, even if they own the homes, that are located on federal land.  This is something like having a condo, and being forced to leave it because the land is not yours.   It’s a bad deal. Consider what the feds are doing to people such as 77 year old Joyce Spencer and her 80 year old husband Ralph, who were tossed out of their Lake Mead property in Nevada.   Do not buy a vacation home on federal land.  It’s not a good idea to make a contract with such an unstable business as the U.S. government, which can be headed up by any unknown freak to whom the media takes a liking. (No link is provided to KNTV news, which is ABC.)

Park Rangers have been instructed to make life as difficult for people as possible.  They are ordered to keep people away from private businesses which are located on federal land.   Do not start a tourism business which is tied to a federal park.  This administration is just too insane to run a business, and makes a very poor partner.

The TSA is blaming the government shut down for their inability to stop a 9 year old boy from successfully stowing away on a plane, with no accompanying adult.

The Obama administration has shut down the Amber alert website, but has left up Michelle’s “Let’s Move” website.  LMAO  at their priorities.

Harry Reid, aligning with the Zero Negotiation stance of his president, asked “why would he want to” ? fund NIH cancer treatment trials for sick children.

One bright spot amid the hostile activity of the Obama administration is that government regulations are not currently being written and promulgated.  Let’s hope this continues.

The republicans even offered to commit suicide, by delaying the individual mandate TAX until after 2014, so the Democrats would not suffer losses based upon the anger of people who find that they can’t afford Obamacare.  Obama refused this republican self immolation because he did not want it to appear that his opponents  could move him one millimeter in any direction.

The Petulant one is running around telling people that the government will default on its debt if he does not get his way.  This, of course, will be his choice, because the government continues to take in enough revenue to pay the interest on the debt.  That means no default is necessary unless Obama wants it.

While you are observing the vindictiveness of  the executive branch: the Obama administration, as it reacts to the resistance from Congress, remember that America put him in charge of health care, and this is the guy EXECUTING  policy, willy-nilly,  that might mean death for you.

What Motivates Obama to Punish the Babies with Inhumane Execution ?

The Memory Dept., Down on the Pharm,  pulls up Obama’s town hall in Johnstown, PA, 3-29-2008,  in which he mentioned not wanting his daughters (then 6 and 9 years old) to be punished with a baby. 

Obama: "I don't want them punished with a baby"
Obama: “I don’t want them punished with a baby”

Why is our abortionist in chief  so hell bent on punishing babies both newborn and preborn, by means of painful execution methods employed by the abortion industry?  Obama’s advisors are telling him to to veto Rep.Trent Franks’  Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which has just been passed (today) in the House.

Life News has provided  today’s  house voting record  (click HERE)  so  you can see how your representative weighed in on this decision.  The new Act bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy except in cases of rape, incest and to save a mother’s life, although the latter is actually inapplicable.

Legitimate Reason to Leave the Catholic Church ??

Magdi Allam made international news when he converted from his Muslim faith to Catholicism on Easter, 2008, at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, with Pope Benedict XVI officiating.

Allam now says that he is leaving Catholicism, but will always remain a Christian.  He is upset that the Catholic Church has stood by for the “Islamization” of Europe, which he sees as an affront to Western civilization, and the “fundamental rights of the person”.   He points to the persecution of Christians in the Muslim countries, and  explains that a practice of appeasement will not be effective in stopping the maltreatment.

“I am convinced,” Allam stated, “that Islam is an ideology inherently violent as it has been historically conflictual inside and warlike outside.”

Pharmer does not see all Muslims as being cut from the same cloth, though Allam is certainly correct about the more extreme Islamic groups.  The main difficulty with Islam occurs when it is practiced as a political system, rather than as a religion.  There are those who hold that Islam is inherently a political system.

There are some additional forces driving people from the Catholic Church.  In the U.S.  the Church has been very weak in speaking up for the rights of the unborn, the elderly and disabled, preferring to sell them out for government funding of their charitable and educational interests.   The U.S. Catholic church has also seen fit to place charitable functions and health care into the hands of a very corrupt government.   After doing this, the Bishops then feigned surprise that abortion, birth control coercion, and IPAB death panels were a part of the government health care plan, brought by the most pro-abortion/infanticide president in history.

Yours truly thinks it is plausible that the Catholic leadership in the U.S. knew what was coming all along.  It is observed that the nominally Catholic lawmakers who pushed this abortive health care agenda are still able to publicly partake in the Eucharist.  This serves as an indication that Obamacare, and all the death and destruction it is bringing our way, might  have  been pre-approved by the church leadership in America.

Does it make sense, with this in mind, to follow the example of Magdi Allam?   Pharmer is not taking such a step.   Perhaps it makes more sense to stick with the ideals of the Catholic religion as an ethical system apart from so many current clergy and leaders who not taking it seriously.

Perhaps it also makes more sense to abstain from the Eucharist in the place of Biden, Pelosi, et al, and do penance for having allowed them to govern us.  


“Infanticidal Lefties!” We Told You So

After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? — Giubilini and Minerva — Journal of Medical Ethics.

After about 40 years of hearing that the pro-lifers’ slippery slope arguments against abortion and euthanasia were not valid, or a departure from reality, Pharmer takes this opportunity to say We TOLD you so!.

As if this is news, the internet has taken up the above example, authored by “bioethicists” (qualified to be on Obama’s health advisory team) that infanticide of any newborn is OK, if the baby is considered inconvenient to the lifestyle of the parents.

Wesley Smith is giving the same article one more go around at Second Hand Smoke. Even he seems tired of writing about them.

What seems to be a shock in the media is just old news to pro-lifers, who knew our leftist, ideological opponents, and realized their nature from the beginning. Killing and slavery is still their thing. They have not evolved to anything higher throughout the centuries.

The question is whether those of us without this appetite for destruction are going to continue to fund the plans of these people to kill and enslave us.

Are you attending to your boycotting? Are you paying attention to the “service” projects that your kids are doing in school? Are you directing your charitable efforts towards groups aligned with your ethical beliefs?

Georgia Supreme Court Knocks Down Law Restricting Assisted Suicides | Fox News

Georgia Supreme Court Knocks Down Law Restricting Assisted Suicides | Fox News.

It appears that Georgia has no law against assisted suicides. There has been a law which restricts the advertising of assisted suicide. The Final Exit Network has been advertising this, and the fact that they helped a 58 year old cancer patient kill himself. This lead to a conviction of four of their members, which was overturned by the state’s Supreme Court last Monday.

The Supreme Court said that to ban the advertising, when there is no law against assisted suicide, amounts to a restriction on freedom of speech. The opinion, by Justice Hugh Thompson, suggested making a law against assisted suicide itself, rather than selectively going after those who publicly proclaimed their activities.

Jack Kevorkian Dead at 83

Assisted Suicide Crusader Jack Kevorkian Dies in Hospital |

Jack Kevorkian, the pathologist who undertook transferring living patients to those in his medical specialty ahead of schedule, has died after a hospital admission for renal failure and pneumonia.

The immediate cause of death is said to be pulmonary embolism, though multiple conditions and complications existed at the time of his admission.

Kevorkian was the most famous promoter and practitioner of physician assisted suicide in the US.  He was imprisoned for killing patients  (many of whom were not in terminal condition)  in locations where it is still illegal to do so.

On the Advance of Civilization

The United States is at a cross roads. Some of our representatives have gotten a hold of this idea. They have correctly recognized that social issues and economic issues of the United States are intertwined, and that the social issues have to be addressed in order for the economic issues to be resolved.

This is the reason:

The Advance of Human Civilization is fueled by the desire to alleviate human suffering and human need.
If the suffering and need are concealed or erased by killing the victims, there will be no advancement.

We can see this already happening in the countries with socialized medicine. They have decided to stop treatment, and/or kill off those who have too many difficulties, or whose existence is not seen as profitable for the society as a whole. You can see what has happened to their capacities for medical and others scientific innovation. Which country still fosters the most scientific advancement, so that the most gifted people of the world flock here in order to accomplish their aims? It is still U.S.

If we decide to kill people because they have unmet needs, we will cease to advance as a civilization. All sorts of innovations will grind to a halt. We will enter a prolonged depression and dark age.

Listen to the likes of Bachmann, Palin, Cain, West, and the ones who came before them. They have a gut understanding of the main point, given above, though they might not be able to express it in as few words.
These people have the charisma to convey a more hopeful future for humanity, and lead others to it.

Senate Democrats Give up Confirmation of Two Legged Death Panel, Donald Berwick

Senate Democrats Abandon Obama Rationing Czar Donald Berwick |

The Senate Dems have dispaired of overcoming the filibuster promised by Republicans to overcome confirmation of Obama Nominee Donald Berwick  as Medicaid, Medicare and Obamacare administrator.

Berwick has been an avid proponent of UK style socialized medicine and rationing, though he pretended to back away from this during the process of his nomination.

Obama had used a recess appointment to overcome Republican opposition to his nomination, but without senate confirmation the temporary  appointment is over by the end of the year.
