The reason for the failure of this program lies with the gop who fought tooth and nail to exclude the public health insurance option from Obamacare. It was the only provision Big Insurance really feared and the only way the playing field could have been truly leveled. But everyone's forgotten that... as usual. I will rejoice to see the tea party go down in flames as it seems America is finally waking up. Obama-Biden 2012 for working people, Women, and the middle class. Who cares about the rich - they will always have plenty for their selfish covetousness. As proved heretofor, they have no intention to "trickle down"
You must not have read my post correctly. Your response is typical republican obfuscation. But I will give you another succinct example although you obviously are hopelessly out foxed and full of limbaughburger. My brother in law used to criticize my union membership making a joke out of it. I had not seen him for some time and we met at a family get together. He apologized to me and stated he had joined the IBEW. His reason: "I just realized I had no pension and no future with that non union contractor'' You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about and are obviously a union busting promoter with no real concern with an every day working man's plight.
I'm sick of hearing the words "union hack" what does that mean, anyway? I am a union member who has worked hard all my life in the hot sun and freezing cold to provide an infrastructure for you to drive on and buildings for you to receive medical diagnosis in. I saw a long time ago that non union employers were not providing retirement or medical care for my family. I personally know individuals who worked for non union contractors in Jeff City for 30+ years who have nothing to show for it but social security. No pension. That is the future for a republican regime... except: no social security. And whenever I ask any of you what your alternative plan is, you have no answer. It's just cut everybody off and let the chips fall where they may. For security I will vote Obama Biden 2012. I don't need my wife and I cut off at our age.
If Paul had in any way seen another value to circumsion he would have stated it. As he said: "For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come." He said nothing about the value of circumsion. All you have is bogus medical opinions to support circumsion. And there are plenty in opposition. "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." I have hardly taken from the words of the book, by quoting exact context. Paul said circumsion is unnecessary, and it is. It is you who presumes by reading between the lines. Perhaps you are a misguided OB/GYN.
You weary me with your lack of Bible study. You would rather challenge than research yourself because you are committed to your narrow views. But here goes: "I, Paul, am telling you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you. Once again I testify to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obliged to obey the entire law. You who want to be justified by the law have cut yourselves off from Christ; you have fallen away from grace." (Gal. 5:2-4) "Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of those who mutilate the flesh! For it is we who are the circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God…"(Phil. 3:2) "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything; the only thing that counts is faith working through love." (Gal. 5:6) Perhaps some of you made a poor decision for your sons. God forgives.
No. The child is not guilty. It is simply the carrier of bad genetics. It may not manifest the undesirable trait. It's offspring may. If a means of isolating the bad trait and removing it were available to us it would be in our best interest as a species to do so. This would preserve the individuals possible contribution to humanity. In the interim the best option is to stop the proliferation of the bad seed. As every farmer does. You keep the good seed. You discard the bad. It's not about retribution against the child of rape. It's about policing the future of the Human Race.
Logic and science show us through genetics and epigenetics that traits can be passed on to our offspring. There are examples of rape being used by some species as a means of passing on their genetic material. I personally feel the Human Genome would be better served by eliminating this possibility, just as we incarcerate undesirables for long periods thereby eliminating their possibility of passing their bad genes. I don't have any uncertainty.
Not according to the New Testament.
So, your'e doing nothing, then.
I'll tell you what's abnormal. Cutting off something God intended to be there in the first place. A LOT of Men are incensed that this was done to them without consent. Circumcision can cause complications – bleeding, infection, urethral stricture. Complications may be immediate or delayed, and complications from bleeding, infection and poorly carried out circumcisions can be catastrophic. The immediate complications may be classified as surgical mishap, hemorrhage, infection and anesthetic risk. Deaths have been reported. Necrosis of all or part of the ....., hypospadias, epispadias, impotence and removal of too much tissue, sometimes causing secondary phimosis. Why not let your son make up his own mind later?
