My decreasing level of tolerance

Why is it when a person on the conservative side of the aisle proposes legislation the press and progressives et. al claim "They are trying to force their will/values/morals on me". Yet when the left proposes legislation that in turn is contrary to my will/values/morals I am being unreasonable?

Because they are communists. They are control freaks. Vote against them, so later, we don't have to consider using other means to get, or keep them from power,

Well, I guess it's the same way that talk radio and Fox denounce pretty much anything the Prez sez and I'm labeled a communist wacko nut job blah blah blah for my beliefs/morals /values.

Joe, you said over at my place that "I should not be forced to pay for your contraception as a taxpayer or an employer." Fine. Does that include free birth control for our Armed Service members?

Should Catholic taxpayers be forced to pay for this because of moral objection?

Yup. The righties have assured rape victims in the Armed Services won't get their abortions covered. Now y'all can be proud of your high-moral selves when you scrub condoms and BCPs from the Armed Services.

Go America!

The Armed Services is the Government. If the Government wants to pay for it then we all have to live with it. The Government pays for a lot of stuff both of us do not like.

A PRIVATE insurer/employer should not be forced to cover anything they do not like.

There is a difference.

Erin, you might want to check your sources on that. I know for a fact that a Navy girl was raped by an Illegal Mexican and the Navy told her every option was covered. She is a friend of mine as well as her mother.
I will treat any other reference to the military with the knowledge you have never served nor has most of your crowd.

I hope none of the boys got STDs from the priests that abused them. A condom would have been very handy indeed especially if was paid for by the bishop.
