The Prophylactic on the Truth: The Ribbed NYT Brand

Feb 11 2012 Published by under salt

These people are seriously deeeeeranged.  They can’t be this dishonest, can they?  Or think that we are this stupid?  How are such super-smaht people this stricken with goo where their mental acuity should be?

The NYT posted yet another “life, liberty and free condoms are your constitutional right” piece, this time as an NYT editorial.

I felt compelled to comment, below.  They won’t publish it, so I am publishing here:

There’s no love lost between me and the Catholic Church of my upbringing, but to frame this as a “right” to birth control argument is fatuous and dishonest, even for wicked smaht liberals like you guys, who gas up the place with fatuous and dishonest every minute of every damned day.

It doesn’t MATTER what YOU think. It matters what THE CHURCH thinks, and THEY think directing A SINGLE PENNY in SUPPORT of abortion/contraception is WRONG and it DOESN’T MATTER if Obama uses some bullish*t bookkeeping trick as a fig leaf.

He’s reached his big fat federal hand into the sanctuary of faith and you know it. Just own up to it ferkryssakes, and make an honest argument. But this? This is beneath even you.

NYT “The Republican Contest” Comment

Jan 11 2012 Published by under salt

I can’t stomach digesting every word of a NYT editorial, so I admit I just skimmed this one, but my eye landed on the weary phrase “failed policies of the past” and it set me off.  Here was a comment I posted there, which they will probably not publish:

This “failed policies of the past” meme has got to stop. It’s not the lovers of big government who spent $15T. Conservative Tea Party types have this madcap notion that crappy companies should be allowed to fail – How do you know Ford wouldn’t have BOUGHT GM and made it even BETTER? When you interfere with the operations of the market, you deny the opportunity for entrepreneurship to flourish.

We also have this madcap idea that WE know how to spend our money on retirement, tuition, healthcare, and mortgages better than the Feds. 

If you’d read the archives of your own d*mned paper, you would be able to track the evolution of the healthcare costs skyrocketing directly, and I would argue as a causation not merely corollary, that it wasn’t until “hospital insurance” was foisted on employers in the 1950′s that medical costs became utterly untenable. Once a third party paying the unknown price tab was involved, it skyrocketed.

My grandfather was a physician in MA for 50 years. The dining table I grew up eating on was handcrafted in mahogany as payment for delivering a craftsman’s eighth child. It was given to my mother and will be given to me, someday.

People managed. They figured it out. THEY TOOK CARE OF THEIR OWN, IN THEIR OWN BACKYARDS.

It didn’t all go to sh*t until Kennedy & progressive Republicans got in there and mucked it all up.
