Sooooo, all of you medical clinic owners……… how do you like being compared to Kermit Gosnell?
Are newborn babies killed at your facilities?
Do you regularly fail to clean your examination rooms, procedure rooms and equipment?
Is meperidine still your pain reliever of choice?
Do you keep separate waiting rooms for Blacks and Whites as he did?
How would you like to give Barbara Boxer a piece of your mind for smearing your business?
That’s why they have been engaging in secretive talks to exempt themselves and their staff members from requirements to join the abysmal government exchanges.
The government officials know that entry level staffers cannot afford the ravages of rising health care insurance costs under the “Affordable” Health Care act. They fear that the best staffers will leave Washington in search of more lucrative jobs in order to be able to afford the M A N D A T E D health care insurance.
The thought of “brain drain” in Washington DC (mentioned by the Politico) is vastly amusing. Are Americans to believe that intelligent people planned this debacle for us, and chained us to debt eternally?
Readers should be aware that Finance Committee Chairman, Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana) ripped into Sebelius and stated that Obamacare is going to be a train wreck. Recall that he was one of the original authors of this disaster. Immediately after this show,he announced that he will not be running for office again.
Newtown middle schoolers Max Goldstein and his brother VOLUNTARILY quit playing the shoot ‘em up video games. Goldstein says that continuing to indulge in them is “rude and disrespectful to the families” of the Sandy Hook victims. They’re encouraging others to follow suit. The CBS headline (below) describing Goldstein’s initiative is inaccurate, as he’s asking for people to follow his example of their own free will. His goal is to reduce the presence of the games in the U.S. by a third.
It’s more reasonable to suppose that continuous overindulgence in extremely graphic video violence would have more influence over a developing mind than the mere presence of guns. Maybe if the kids get outside and interact with each other a bit more, some of these tragedies might be averted.
Rather than asking people to change their gaming habits, the big kids in Washington want to pass federal versions of the ineffective regulations banning guns in schools, and heavily restricting them in the entire state of Connecticut. The federal lawmakers have gone home for Christmas. Hopefully next year they’ll be too distracted by angry tax payers looking at their shrunken January paychecks to waste time with the gun laws.
The Dems now have veto-proof majorities in California and Illinois. Expect those two states to die. Develop an escape plan.
One party rule has become dominant in the states, whether it is Republican or Democrat. There are only 12 states with divided government. Republicans still hold most of the one party states, with 23, and the Dems now hold 14, having picked up 8. Republicans picked up 2. Interestingly, the Republicans picked up the Wisconsin senate. With that news, Pharmer now has some work to do in Wisconsin. Republicans also picked up Arkansas and really own the Old South, with 11 states. They added one governorship, for a total of 30 to the dems 20.
Pharmer isn’t so worried about one party rule in the case of republicans That really isn’t one party rule anymore, as that group itself is going to discover over time.
As of now, the condition of Senator Harry Reid is unknown, even to his son Rory.
Reid had just visited the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas prior to the auto accident. He was headed to an editorial board meeting of El Tiempo, a Las Vegas news publication. The live feed of the traffic alert system was shut down shortly after the accident. A photo of the accident scene is HERE.
Such antiquated ideas fly in the face of countless observations in science and medicine, but the leftist media, being largely unfamiliar with these disciplines have not a critical word to say about Chris Murphy and Linda McMahon.
Meanwhile, the journalosts continue to lose their hive-mind over Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin, who understand that the human organism is alive from fertilization onward, and believe that all human life should be respected.
This is the Pro-life Vid of the day over at Jill Stanek’s pro-life place.
Richard Mourdock on seeing only “life of the mother” as sufficient excuse for abortion: “I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” Mourdock did not back down when asked to explain his statement: “What I said was, in answering the question form my position of faith, I said I believe that God creates life. I believe that as wholly and as fully as I can believe it. That God creates life. Are you trying to suggest that somehow I think that God pre-ordained rape? No, I don’t think that. That’s sick. Twisted. That’s not even close to what I said. What I said is that God creates life.”
Pharmer will have to send a another donation to Mourdock’s campaign today.
Not a dime was sent to the Romney campaign because he threw Todd Akin under the bus.
The Republican establishment leadership showed your friendly Pharmer their lack of gonads one too many times, and now there is no use for the party affiliation.
Romney’s response to Mourdock is expected. The only reason to vote for Romney is to get rid of Obama, who is crazy for abortion.
Hopefully Mourdock will continue to stick to his guns with respect to this statement. A pregnancy from rape can produce as big a gift as any other kind of unplanned pregnancy.
Why have people become so offended by the idea that God decides the life and death matters?
The failed control freaks will be identifiable by their reaction to Mourdock’s statement.
One last note: Abortion is frequently and successfully used for concealing the fact of rape. Planned Parenthood is known for assisting with this concealment.
Deb thinks the ultrasound is invasive but TAX PAYER FUNDED ABORTIONS are not.
Deb thinks that informing women before aborting their baby is invasive, but laminaria and suction cannulas are not.
Perhaps Deb also thinks that the TSA grope method, for which Planned Parenthood Charges Medicaid and the tax payers, is vital for cancer screening, but mammograms are extra. Her own party’s administration has cut the mammogram recommendation to every other year.
Pharmer thinks it’s stupid to do an abortion without knowing if the pregnancy is ectopic or not. Men wouldn’t tolerate such unguided surgical intervention as Deb Butler approves as the standard for women.
Pharmer thinks Deb Butler is every bit the fraud that Planned Parenthood is. Her ad is below.
Listen to Tim Kaine, the Democrat Senate Candidate in Virginia open up the idea of a minimum federal tax for EVERYONE! That might increase the interest “the 47%” in tax cuts!!!
It could be a game changer!!!
As you might know, Senator Franken is cleared for touring with the Obama Campaign, but that former comedian has had some odd ideas about what is funny.
Blast from the nineties: A reporter is watching a gaggle of Saturdy Night Live writers attempting another spoof of Andy Rooney. They’re imagining him finding an pill bottle, which once contained sedatives, in his desk.
Franken: “And, ‘I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesley’s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her.’ Or, ‘That’s why you never see Lesley until February.’ Or, ‘When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.’”
Downey: “‘Here’s a picture of Ed Bradley.’”
MacDonald: “What if Rooney rapes Mike Wallace? And then says, ‘I guess that makes me bad.’ Is it funnier with a black guy? Or two old white guys?”
Franken: “What about, ‘I drag Mike into my office and rape him. Right here! I guess that makes me bad.’”
Ted Cruz, a Tea Party candidate who has never held political office, beat Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, in a primary runoff election for the senate seat in Texas. This is quite an costly upset for the OLD Republicans, and another sign of surging Tea Party strength. This second runoff resulted because David Dewhurst was unable to garner 50 percent of the vote in the regular primary.
Signs that Lugar had been in place for two long were his approval of Obama’s Supreme court appointees and his HHS secretary. He had lost the support of pro-lifers and the NRA.
Despite Lugar’s 10 to 1 ad expenditures, he could not defeat the strong Teaparty support behind Mourdock. Towards the end, the incumbent was begging democrats to cross over and and support him in the primary. He even ran a democrat-style television ad featuring an elderly lady expressing fear that Mourdock would take away her social security. (Note that the Ryan plan, which Mourdock supports, does not remove funding from those already on social security.)
A series of Mourdock signs have adorned the Pharm this past month. The one below survived regular inspections by cattle, as well as three significant storms, to remain in place through election day.
Mourdock recycles, so Pharmer will be out collecting signs this evening.
Do you think that Lugar will spend his retirement in Indiana??
Both Dick Lugar and Orrin Hatch have stayed too long in Washington and the Tea Party is working to replace them. Hatch appears to have a better chance of surviving the onslaught. Indiana Democrats are assisting with the destruction of Lugar over such issues as residency and the cost of his hotel stays in Indiana since he has not been a resident since 1977. Lugar has responded by returning some of the cost of his hotel stays, and has changed the address on his voter registration.
Richard Mourdock is closing in on Lugar despite being outspent by the incumbent.
Remember…….. Lugar thought that Sotomayor, and Kagan were acceptable Supreme Court Justices, and that Kathleen Sebelius was a competent and worthy choice to head the Dept. of Health and Human Services. That’s an Obamanation !
It was fairly easy to get Indiana Senate bill 72 passed by the republicans with most of the meat hacked out of it. What’s left is a bill that stops telemed abortions. It requires certain info to be given to women before giving the drugs, but it does not require that the info on the safety of the drugs be accurate.
Abortionists do not have to report treatment failures or adverse events, deaths, hospitalizations, caused by use of the abortion drugs. Therefore the safety of the drugs can never be assessed or compared with that of childbirth.
The definition of abortion drug, which is the main thing left in the bill can be construed include Ella, (ulipristal acetate) when the doses are accumulated in sufficient quantity to induce a home abortion.
There is no longer a visible requirement that the abortion drugs be used according to the FDA approved label. Therefore planned unparenthood can continue its practice of using one third the recommended dose of mifepristone, double the dose of misoprostil, and ejecting the embryo or fetus dead or alive.
The top link will lead you to what’s left of the bill as it leaves the senate.
Pharmacists will require special definitions of interceptive drugs, (which kill the early human embryo by stopping implantation), and and entirely separate legislation to be excused from dispensing the morning after pills, including Ella, which can be used for home abortions if the doses are accumulated.
Tea Partier Gary Wright had heard that Richard Lugar does not live in Indiana anymore……… for the past 30 years or so.
He decided to check for himself and found that Lugar is registered as an Indiana voter at the address of a house that he sold shortly after moving to Washington DC in 1977. His driver’s license says that they still live at the 3200 Highwoods Court, Indianapolis address (where Betsy Hughes lives and occasionally receives Lugar’s mail). No one is bothering to turn over the rocks on this fraud.
Supposedly the Indiana Constitution does not require Lugar to live in Indiana in order to be a senator from here. However one wonders what benefits Lugar has obtained from Indiana while a non-resident for the last 30 years. Other elected officials have been put through the mill on this basis.
Remember…. Lugar also thinks that Kathleen Sebelius is a good choice for head of the Dept. of Health and Human Services. Her Dept is the one threatening Indiana’s Medicare/Medcaid funding because we cut off Planned Parenthood’s tax funding.
Adverse events associated with or related to childbirth are reportable as such to include the whole period of pregnancy, childbirth and the year after delivery, at the recommendation of the ACOG.
The non reporting of abortion related adverse events and deaths, combined with the more readily reported pregnancy related or associated deaths has led to false statistics comparing the relative risk of childbirth and abortion.
Senate Bill 72 is now structured in such a way as to facilitate a means to convince women that abortion is safer than childbirth. The lack of requirement for reporting abortion drug adverse events serves to worsen the current skewing and misrepresentation of facts, which denies patients the opportunity of giving informed consent.
Useful parts of the bill worth noting: The definition of abortion inducing drug includes “off-label use of drugs known to have abortion inducing properties if the drug is prescribed with the intent of causing an abortion”. (Ch.3 sec.1a) The bill also requires that the abortionist “follows the drug label protocol for the abortion producing drug. (Ch3. sec 3a-2)
Expect a firestorm from planned parenthood which utilizes mifepristone, RU-486, in an off label manner by using less of the drug (a single 200mg tab) than recommended on the label, (three 200mg tablets) and by using it up to, or at 63 days gestation instead of 49 days.
According to the Mifeprex label, U.S., three x 200mg tabs are to be administered in a single dose, and the patient returns to the clinic in 2 days to take 2 tabs (400mcg) of misoprostil, to expel the human embryo or fetus. Planned Parenthood of Indiana is sending the patients home with four tablets (800mcg) according to their own info.
From Drs Gary and Harrison at Medscape: “The US clinical trial demonstrated a failure rate of 8% at 49 days or less from the last menstrual period (LMP), increasing to 17% at 50-56 days from the LMP, and further increasing to a 23% failure at 57-63 days from the LMP, as established by sonographic criteria………One serious concern raised by this review of AERs is the suggested fetal malformation rate of at least 23% following mifepristone failures that resulted in continuation of a live pregnancy.”
Senate confirmation processes have very recently become superfluous. However the fantasy appearance of Joe Biden before Senator Kerry and the Foreign Relations Committee is hilarious fun. If you need a laugh, click HERE.
Pro-lifer’s memory of Democrat Senator, Ben Nelson’s betrayal on abortion in Obamacare may have provided impetus for him to announce his retirement this week. His seat was considered one of the most endangered of the more than 20 Dem senate seats up for contention in 2012.
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) NJ, has about 50 million, so …… Is he going to volunteer for his program? ;-)
*Update: The videographer made a correction at Youtube, as it appears that Lautenberg tried to say waste.
The title here stands, because we always have less of whatever is taxed, and that includes the rich. See also the Warren Buffett’s plan, which Lautenberg touts. This tax plan will eliminate the rich before Lautenberg actually addresses the government waste.
Take note- The debt and economic disaster will be kicked down the road by Obama. Four more years will turn us into a third world Nation.
When our Republican leaders finally act as though they’ve grown a pair, it makes screaming red headlines on the Drudge Report.
Said Sen. Mitch McConnell: “…. after years of discussions and months of negotiations, I have little question that as long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is unattainable,”
This really is the last stand of the republican party. If they don’t deliver on stopping obama’s spending, there will be a third party. In that case, it will be difficult for a single conservative candidate for the presidency to rise above the rest.
Former Governor Tommy Thompson (R) has been tapped to run for the senate seat to be vacated by Democrat Herb Kohl. The article linked above looks at an improvement in the life issues area, should Thomson win the seat.
Producing a more conservative senate is of topmost priority for the 2012 election.
