Obama forces religious organizations to supply free birth control
Many church-affiliated institutions will have to cover free birth control for employees, the Obama administration announced Friday in an election-year move that outraged religious groups, fueling a national debate about the reach of government.
Call me a pessimist, but I don’t see much debate going on – the war is lost and we die-hards are just prolonging the inevitable.

I lost my job through the New York Times
Labor union leaves “Green” alliance, blasts Obummer. The White House has set its strategy: the goons plan to win on the votes of liberals, college-“educated” women, Food Stamp Nation and illegals. They don’t need white males, so if those guys want to whine about foregone jobs, well let them. Besides, they’ll be collecting unemployment by November and then they’ll be Democrat fodder.

The disgraced “Friend of
Mario’s Angelo’s” who resigned his Senate seat rather than face an ethics inquiry never left Washington last year, he just shifted offices to become chief lobbyist for the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). where he receives a base salary of $1.5 million per year.
Dodd has spent his time flogging the industry’s pet internet censorship bill, SOPA and after its defeat last week, threatening the politicians who voted against it but this lobbying is both illegal and a breach of his own promise in 2010 that he wouldn’t lobby his former colleagues. Of course, this is the same man who made millions in Washington while earning a senator’s salary that shouldn’t produce millionaires but always does and who liked to flash a copy of the Constitution given him by Klan Meister Robert Byrd, so his corruption is neither new nor surprising.
I’m holding my breath, though, waiting for the Justice Department to prosecute him for his current illegal acts on behalf of Hollywood.

Some are more qual than others
Special privileges. Electric car parking spots for the 1%
For those of us who can’t afford a $40,000 car that travels 15 miles, there’s a certain wonder at the 1% who can who get special drivers lanes and parking spots that shove aside the handicapped. But then, we just don’t feel special enough to deserve what the rich greens enjoy as of right.
“If stores and organizations wish to minimize their environmental footprint then they can give priority access to bicyclers and pedestrians,” says Ozzie Zehner, a visiting scholar and the University of California-Berkeley, and author of Green Illusions, an upcoming book that pokes holes in alternative energy practices.
Zehner says EV charge stations just reinforce eco-fetishism and urban sprawl.
“American taxpayers give electric car owners tax breaks and credits to buy their vehicles as well as priority parking and special freeway lanes even though there’s no evidence they’ve done anything positive for the environment in return,” Zehner says. “In fact, the mining, heavy metals, and other side effects of electric car production and operation are likely worse for the environment.”
