The new Soros muffin Fox recently hired as a “balanced” Contributor just made a truly stupid argument – a.k.a. packed full of Proggie dishonesty and vapidity – from the standard Commie a-la-carte menu of straw-men, benevolent despotism, etc. comfort food – in defense of Obama’s ghastly Federal overreach into the Church by saying that (I can’t believe she’s this stupid, or thinks we are. She actually seems like a good scout, though I feel link screaming every time I listen to her shallow reasoning.) “the state compels people to do things all the time, like stopping at stop signs.”
Okay, chickie, but:
1. Not stopping at the stop sign won’t get me or the other guy pregnant.
2. Not stopping at the stop sign will not violate the religious beliefs of any religion I know of.
3. Not stopping at a stop sign is a good way to get killed, so one doesn’t really need the state to tell you to do it except as a method of revenue collection.
4. It’s LOCAL not FEDERAL.
I could go on, but I’ll stop there.
It reminds me of the mandate argument libs used during the health care debate: ”You have to buy insurance for your car!”
Yeah, well, I wasn’t born a BUICK. Driving is a privilege, not a right. It is enforced by the STATE, and the insurance is for THE OTHER GUY, not ME IN CASE I hit them – it is RISK based, as it is, by definition “insurance” – not COVERAGE which is what ObamaCare is…
(While typing this, I have the White House Daily Press Briefing on. Carney just said he didn’t want to tell the Senate how to do its business in response to a question about how Harry Reid is leading the Senate… not 3 minutes after he told the Catholic Church how to to its business by forcing them to pay for what is literally murder in their minds – the morning after pill. Must be nice to be an amazingly elastic liberal.)
