I Like Obamacare

I like Obamacare.  No, I don't like the fact that my premiums for health insurance have quadrupled in the past six years.  No, I don't like the fact that my health insurance now covers me for pregnancy (I am a man and although I am no expert on these things, I don't think I can become pregnant).  No, I don't like the fact that my health insurance now covers me for a nervous breakdown, being a drunk, being a drug addict or just being generally depressed and needing the services of a government approved talk therapist.  And I most certainly do not like the fact that my taxes are now being used to pay for the people who just don't want to pay for their own health insurance, thus forcing me to subsidize their health insurance costs.  But there is one thing I like about Obamacare.  No, let me correct that, there is one thing I love about Obamacare.  Let me tell you about that thing today.
According to the May 20th edition of the Denver Post, "Planned Parenthood says it will close clinics in Longmont, Parker and four others in the region, citing a tough financial landscape in the reproductive health care field due to effects of the Affordable Care Act.  'We supported the ACA because we love the idea of more people having health insurance and increasing access to the critical services that they need, but a lot of our patients were self-pay.' said Whitney Phillips, spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.  'They would come in and get a pap smear and pay out of pocket.  Under the ACA a lot of patients were given the opportunity to be on Medicaid.  Again, that is wonderful, but it meant that rather than bill them directly we had to bill Medicaid.  And Medicaid reimburses at a very low rate.'" 
Well there you have it.  The Socialist Democracy of Amerika's top abortion mill is having to close some of its shops because Obamacare has made them unprofitable.  What a wonderfully ironic state of affairs this is.  PP used to be able to bill the women who came in to kill their babies directly but now, thanks to Obamacare, all of those women are now receiving Medicaid.  As the recipients of the socialized government health care program known as Medicaid they no longer have to pay their own bills.  Unfortunately for PP however is the fact that Medicaid, like all other government programs, is horribly inefficient.  Companies that rely on income streams from Medicaid quickly go out of business because Medicaid does not pay enough to keep them afloat.  So PP finds itself in the position of having to close some of its abortion mills because they are no longer profitable.  What is not to love about that?
The article, written by a woman from Longmont named Karen Antonacci, went on to describe PP for the readers.  According to Karen, as her friends call her, "Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization that relies on grants, donations, patient payments and insurance reimbursements to operate.  The health centers provide sex education and preventive care, such as cancer screenings and birth control."  Karen fails to mention the fact that PP is the country's number one supplier of premeditated murders of pre-born human beings.  I wonder why?
According to this website, PP claims that killing pre-born human beings only makes up 3% of its total business.  Imagine for a moment, if you will, the outrage at a company that willingly confessed that only 3% of its total revenue is derived from selling blacks into slavery in Africa or selling kidneys from Tibetan donors to wealthy Europeans in need of a kidney transplant.  I think we all know that the 3% figure would be deemed irrelevant and that the focus would be upon the horrific things the company is doing with no regard to how much money is made as a result.  (For the record, I believe people should be able to sell their kidneys on the free market if they wish to do so.  Also for the record, I oppose chattel slavery.)  So let's ignore the 3% argument for a moment and focus on the facts.
Is PP primarily a company that provides health services, in a highly discriminatory fashion by the way, to women exclusively?   The answer to that question is yes.  I wonder why they have not been fined by the federal regulators for discrimination?  Is PP the primary provider of abortions to immoral women who desire to execute their pre-born human beings?  The answer to that question is also yes.  Here are the facts:
  • The newspaper article touted the fact that women go to PP for Pap tests.  PP provides less than 1% of all Pap tests conducted in the SDA.
  • The newspaper article touted the fact that women go to PP for cancer screenings.  PP provides no mammogram services.  PP does provide physical exams for cancer.  1.8% of all physical exams for cancer are performed by PP.
  • The newspaper article ignored the fact that PP provides 35% of all abortions that take place in the SDA.  That comes to a whopping 300,000+ abortions per year. 
Why would Karen be so reticent to write about what PP does best?  Why would Karen apparently attempt to hide the fact that PP specializes in killing babies?  Why is Karen not equally proud of PP's record on killing babies since she believes that an abortion is nothing more than a minor surgical procedure akin to liposuction?   Me thinks Karen has a guilty conscience.
Thanks to Obamacare it is more difficult for teenage girls and young women to conspire with a government approved hit-man to murder their pre-born human beings.  For that I am thankful.

We Are A Nation Of Sissies

The citizens of the Socialist Democracy of Amerika are, for the most part, a bunch of pansies, sissies, wimps, cowards, namby-pambys, milksops, weaklings and unmanly men.  I came to this conclusion over the weekend after I went to visit the grocery store.  My conclusion was further cemented in my mind after I read the Saturday edition of the Denver Post.  Let me tell you about that today.
My local grocery store is filled with Yuppies and other hard-charging types who love nothing more than to wear fit-bits and talk about their latest exercise program, all while picking through various green things in the produce section that they would like other Yuppies to believe they actually eat.  Near the front entrance of the store, like most businesses these days, is a section for handicapped parking.  There are ten spaces available for handicapped parking and it is a rare day indeed when each space is not filled by an expensive SUV.  How can it be that such health conscious people can be so handicapped, I wondered to myself?  To answer my question I simply watched the people getting in and out of the cars for a while.  What I learned will probably not surprise you at all.
None of the people getting in and out of the cars parking in the handicapped parking spaces were handicapped.  It is true that some of them were fat and some of them were almost as old as I am but none of them appeared to be in need of a special parking place near the front of the store.  As I wandered down the row of cars parked in the spaces I noticed that none of them had a handicapped license plate.  Instead, all of them had temporary handicapped placards suspended from the rear-view mirrors in their vehicles.  It was then I understood what was going on.  These folks have someone in their family, probably an infirmed parent, who has been able to obtain the government privilege of using handicapped parking spaces.  Along with that privilege comes the government approved placard that can be proudly displayed to announce the person's infirmity and his government given right to park close to the front of stores.  These extraordinarily lazy and extremely sissified people are using their elderly parents placards to grant themselves government privileges to which they are not entitled just to avoid having to walk an additional ten or twenty feet on their trips to the store to buy non-GMO foods, gluten free foods, quinoa and kale.  What a bunch of chumps.
I returned home from the store with my chocolate covered doughnut and sat down to read the paper.  My eye was drawn to a story entitled, "Hick Signs New Law Giving Vets College Credit."  Hick, for those of you who do not live in Colorado, is the governor of this lazy and corrupt state.  The story that followed amazed me.  In addition to all of the free things taxpayers like myself give to vets these days, they are now allowed to get college credit simply for being in the military.  The new law requires Colorado colleges and universities to give vets college credit for being in military service.  As justification for the new law the story said, "Many veterans either quit or did not apply for school because knowledge they acquired during service did not translate into college credits."  What!?  What a bunch of sissies!
I would like to be granted at least two honorary degrees by the University of Colorado in recognition of my life service to the community.  If vets can get college credits for three or four years of hanging out with their buddies in the military I should be entitled to an entire degree for forty years of janitorial services provided to the citizens of the Denver metro area.  Veterans just don't get it.  They have been pampered and pandered to for so long they believe they are not only entitled to have their college degrees paid for, they are also entitled to get college credit without having to take classes.  Everyone seems to be missing the point that college credits are to be granted for college classes, not life experience.  If college degrees are supposed to be granted for life experiences everyone alive would have a multitude of various degrees.  Only the sissified vets in this country could come up with a scam where they get free college credit for being on the taxpayer dole.
After finishing my doughnut, gagging on it as I read the story about free college credits for veterans,  I proceeded to read another story about how the schools in Colorado Springs have decided to abolish the practice of having a valedictorian.  Apparently the Spring's School District 11 voted 6-1 to abolish the practice of having a valedictorian deliver a commencement address.  Even having a person recognized as a valedictorian was considered to be too harsh and intolerant.  Justification for the decision was given by school board member Shawn Gullixon who declared, "I was a C student but may have aspired to perform better if my high school had used this system."  The "system" Shawn is referring to is the new one that eliminates the valedictorian and declares the top 1/3 of the graduating class to be geniuses.  What a bunch of sissies they all are.  Can you imagine a real man complaining like a little girl that he did not do well in school because the school did not recognize him as a genius each day of the year?  What a chump.
As I sat in my rocking chair watching the Rockies lose another game Saturday afternoon I thought about what I had learned that morning.  I came to the only conclusion that I could come to.  We have become a nation of sissies, dullards, fools, pawns, government shills and downright sissy fellows.  Lazy people have to park in handicapped spaces.  Ex-soldiers have to get free college credit for classes that they don't take or they won't go to college.  High school students don't try hard unless they can tell themselves they are the smartest people in their class.  What a joke it all is.  What a shame it all is.  It did not have to be this way.  Thank you progressives.  You have made real progress on this one.
