From time to time I do ‘pet rescues’.

This little guy’s pretty sick – a cold but on a kitten a cold can be deadly.

So I’m taking a couple of days off to tend to him.

The Republican ‘War On Women’ – The Yeah….He Really Did Say That Edition – ‘Fox News expert: ‘Women have the breasts’ so health care should cost more than men’

This is what passes as an ‘expert’ on FOX and remember this is watched and worshiped by millions of Republican Conservatives.

‘A Fox News medical expert on Tuesday argued that President Barack Obama’s administration was wrong to force gender equality for health insurance rates because men “only have the prostate,” while women “have the breasts, they have the ovaries.”

“Look, it’s not bias, I’m not saying this as a man,” Fox News Medical A-Team contributor Dr. David Samadi told the hosts of Fox & Friends. “They go through a lot of preventive screenings, they give birth, they have the whole mammogram, the Pap smear. Guys, we don’t like to go to doctors, right? Seventy percent of health care decisions are made by women. In my own practice, I see it’s the women who bring the guys, who say, go get screened.”

“Yeah, but shouldn’t that earn us a discount?” Fox News host Gretchen Carlson interrupted. “Basic fact that we are responsible for getting our men to come to the doctor? And what about the fact that women, because they do all this preventative care, maybe their health issues end up costing less than men’s, who don’t go to the doctor until it’s a crisis and a big deal.”

“Yes, that’s a good point, except that, you know, women live longer,” Samadi asserted. “Women live until age 81 and men live only until 76. So, we’re using the health care system much less.”

Stories From The Religious Fringe Freaks – ‘Robertson: Gay People Deliberately Spread HIV/AIDS By Cutting People With Special Rings’

pat robertson

The Christian Broadcasting Network has wiped this video from, so far, all places.

So much hate coming out of Pat Robertson and the 700 Club.

‘Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told co-host Terry Meeuwsen that gay men in cities like San Francisco attempt to spread HIV/AIDS to others by cutting them with a special ring when shaking hands. However, one could not hear Robertson make the remarks on the episode his Christian Broadcasting Network posted online, as the company once again appears to have edited Robertson’s comments after they aired’.

UPDATE III: Christian Broadcasting Nation (CBN) has bravely had our video removed from YouTube, but the Huffington Post has its own copy of the video posted here – See more at: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/robertson-gay-people-deliberately-spread-hivaids-cutting-people-special-rings#sthash.60WMBiWg.dpuf

‘While responding to a question from a woman who wondered if it was wrong for the church not to inform her that a man she was driving to worship services is “dying of AIDS,” Robertson admitted that he “used to think it was transmitted by saliva and other things, now they say it may be sexual contact.”

“What to say if you’re driving an elderly man whose got AIDS? Don’t have sex with them,” Robertson said, “unless there’s a cut or some bodily fluid transmission, I think you’re not going to catch it.”

‘But Robertson didn’t stop there’.

“There are laws now, I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody you had a heart attack, you can tell them they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody you’ve got AIDS,” he continued’.

‘Despite Meeuwsen’s best attempts to steer the conversation away from Robertson’s anti-gay paranoia, Robertson insisted that gay people use special rings to transmit the virus’.

“You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” Robertson said. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.”

A ‘Conservative’ vision for america – ‘Racist Radio Host Cuts Off Civil Rights Speech With The Sound Of A Gunshot’

laura ingrham

‘Though the 1963 March On Washington was celebrated by tens of thousands of people this past weekend, there are those who aren’t quite so happy about it’.

‘Among these would conservative radio host, Laura Ingraham, not surprisingly, who spent most of her Monday show attacking and disparaging the speakers at the 50th anniversary observance on the National Mall’.

‘She also took the opportunity to “honor” the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by race-baiting about made-up crime statistics with her guest, Pat Buchanan’.

‘But she saved the worst vitriol for Rep. John Lewis. At one point during the show she played an audio clip of Rep. Lewis’ speech from the anniversary celebration but, before his remarks were finished, she interrupted them with the sound of a gunshot. Have a listen…’

Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘Updated: Congressman says he understands DREAMers’ plight because he’s from Arkansas’

rep gary miller1

‘California Republican Rep. Gary Miller has earned a reputation as an immigration hardliner, but when confronted by a group of young immigrants Friday at a public event in Rancho Cucamonga (which had a $12 entry fee), Miller told them he understands their plight because he, too, is an immigrant, of sorts, moving with his family from Arkansas to California as a young child’.

“You know, I’ve talked to a lot of young people like [you],” Miller told the young activists, captured in footage taken by a Democratic tracker. “I mean, I understand the difficulty. Just like I was born in Arkansas. I came here when I was a year old.”

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Rand Paul: Food, Water, And Healthcare Should Not Be Considered Rights, Lest We End Up Enslaving Providers’

rand paul

Setting aside for the moment basic human compassion – something Rand Paul does very easily – as a so called ‘Christian’ perhaps he’s heard the phrase….’Except for the grace of God…there go I’.

I want YOU Rand Paul to look children in the eyes, be face to face with them and say “You do not have a right to water, food or health care.

I want YOU Rand Paul to look the elderly in the eyes, be face to face with them and say “You do not have a right to water, food or health care”.

I want YOU Rand Paul to look the working poor in the eyes, be face to face with them and say “You do not have a right to water, food or health care’.

Then I want YOU Rand Paul to read the Constitution of the United States.

Maybe you’ve heard of that Country ……..

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”.

Water, food and yes health care should not have to be begged for. ‘Promoting the General Welfare’ grants the right to dignity in life and that includes water, food and health care.

It does not ‘enslave’ the one providing.

It grants them the status of being compassionate human being.

Rand Paul :

“As humans, yeah, we do have an obligation to give people water, to give people food, to give people health care… But it’s not a right because once you conscript people and say, ‘Oh, it’s a right,’ then really you’re in charge, it’s servitude, you’re in charge of me and I’m supposed to do whatever you tell me to do… It really shouldn’t be seen that way.”
