Death Panels for Babies!

Our guest columnist is Preznident of These United States in an alternate universe.

Women have a lot to lose under Obamacare, and I’ll give you an example. If you want to go into specifics, what the government can give, the government can take away. It certainly isn’t beyond the pale to think, in light of Kathleen Sebelius, the Health and Human Services Secretary — she said that it’s important that we have contraceptives because that prevents pregnancy, and pregnancy is more expensive to the federal government.

Going with that logic, according to our own Health and Human Services Secretary, it isn’t far-fetched to think that the President of the United States could say, we need to save health care expenses — the federal government will only pay for one baby to be born in the hospital per family, or two babies to be born per family. That could happen. We think it couldn’t?…

What I’m saying is that now that we know the President of the United States unilaterally can tell insurance companies, you must offer the morning-after abortion pill, you must offer sterilizations, you must offer contraceptives free to the recipients of those products, because we tell you to — which means they’re effectively setting the price, as well — that says that whoever the health care dictator, could conceivably make that order, as well.

There’s nothing that this president, one person, would be limited from doing. That’s how profound that is. I’m not saying that he is going to do it. I’m saying that he has the power and the authority to do it. We don’t want anyone to have that level of authority.

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Michelle’s gonna act like a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird’s shit won’t fly,
Michelle’s gonna go with an even bigger lie

And if that bigger lie just gets laughs,
Michelle’s gonna go through the looking glass

And if that looking glass gets smashed,
Michelle’s gonna go on a pill bender and crash

And if that bender just won’t end,
Michelle’s gonna send Marcus in

And if Marcus eats a corn dog and falls down,
You’ll still have the worst healthcare in town

And if pigs get wings, we can use them to colonize the moon! And gas will be a penny a gallon!

Paging FlyingChainSaw: Very hawt and big boobie ginger Christina Hendricks on this month’s Cosmo. I love seeing a chick with some meat on her bones in a fashion mag.

@SanFranLefty: Like this woman who was deemed too fat to model… are they fucking kidding me? I see women on the street all the time who look like that, and my first impulse is to buy them a sandwich.

@blogenfreude: I don’t think I’m allowed in LA about 90% of the year, and not in NYC during Fashion Week, because I want to run around with a cart full of burritos and shove them in the faces of the walking skeletons.

P.S. That Dutch woman is hot. And I say that as a confirmed str8 lady, but damn. Almost as smokin’ as Christina H.

@blogenfreude:

My guidance counselor never once mentioned “cabinet making” as an option, and now I’m pretty pissed!
