A Post, For It Is Friday

Time to wind the work week down...

Infanticide IS murder and is punishable up to at least five years in prison:

A female person commits infanticide when by a wilful act or omission she causes the death of her newly-born child, if at the time of the act or omission she is not fully recovered from the effects of giving birth to the child and by reason thereof or of the effect of lactation consequent on the birth of the child her mind is then disturbed.

Infant and child neglect and concealing a dead body are also crimes. Therefore, any weaselly attempt to hinder or excuse the crime of infanticide is as morally defensible as drenching a puppy in gasoline and set it on fire.

Oh! Did I go too far?

But...but... he promised:

Nearly 500,000 children, under Obamacare, will still lack health insurance because many poor families will not qualify to get government assistance to buy health insurance because of how Congress defined "affordable." 

Under the IRS regulations released on Wednesday, families that cannot "afford the employer coverage that they are offered on the job will not be able to get financial assistance from the government to buy private health insurance on their own."

Congress said "affordable" meant Obamacare plans cannot be "more than 9.5 percent of family income." But under the new IRS rules, "people with coverage the law considers affordable cannot get subsidies to go into the new insurance markets," because what counts as "affordable" is keyed to the cost of insurance for an individual worker and not families.

Since the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that "a typical workplace plan costs about $5,600 for an individual worker" while the average family plan costs $15,700, family members of workers whose employers do not "chip in" for family coverage could be out of luck. They will not be able to make up the difference and will not qualify for Obamacare subsidies.
Conservative and religious organizations on Friday slammed proposed changes in Obamacare that would let only faith-based groups — but not companies or nonprofit groups that operate on religious principles — opt out of providing contraceptives.
“This latest version of the contraceptives and sterilization mandate remains unacceptable,” Dr. David Stevens, CEO of the Christian Medical Association, told “Since when does the government get to pick and choose which groups will get to enjoy First Amendment protections?

Obama has such a personal, moral and political disconnect for the people so stupid to vote for him and an unmovable hatred for those against him (a torch happily carried by the popular press) that it is truly disturbing. Stalin and the Kim dynasty really do come to mind when one thinks of utterly wrong his principles are.

It's not badgering if the questions regarding his anti-Israel bias are valid (and they are):

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that the Administration is pleased with their nominee for Secretary of Defense after yesterday's hearing. Carney said that Chuck Hagel did "just fine" in answering questions and that the Republican Senators "badgered" the nominee by trying to "re-litigate the past." 

In Obama's America, if you ask Obama or one his lackeys a tough question, you're a bully. When Egypt collapses, who will help contain it- Hagel or Israel?

Just another day for the "religion of peace":

"Islamic extremists threatened us to leave, not the Libyan people, who instead protected us by coming to visit every day until our departure", Sister Celeste Biasolo, former superior of the convent of the Holy Family of Spoleto in Derna tells AsiaNews. In October she was forced to leave Libya with four other sisters, because of the spread of Islamic extremists in Cyrenaica. The situation described by the religious is also confirmed by Msgr. Martinelli, Apostolic Vicar of Tripoli, who recently pointed out that two other religious communities will leave Cyrenaica after having been threatened by Islamists: the Franciscan Sisters of the Infant Jesus of Barce and the Ursuline Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Beida.

"They also threatened by saying “you are Christians insects and have no power to do anything against us”, and “you are slaves and trivial and tiny before us” and “we will burn your houses and church”...

(Sidebar: if you're an Islamist with polio, why don't you walk over here and say that?)

And now, prepare this for your Saturday breakfast: banana-Nutella-stuffed French toast.

(With thanks)
