Mr. President, You Do it All the Time

On the 36th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, President Obama said that it “stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters.” I would like to call Mr. Obama's attention to a few of the ways his government does indeed intrude — all the time. So much so that is taken for granted, it appears. 

The Government mandates:

1.With whom and when one may marry. 

2.The age at which one can have sex.  

3.With whom or with what one may or may not have sex. 

4.The degree and content of "prurient" subjects permitted access.  

5.The age at which one can marry.  

6.The nature of sex acts permitted.  

7.The regulation of mind/mood altering substances.  

8. Regulation of birth control devices and practices.  And finally: 

9. Permitting/ denying the right of choice.       

So "our most private family matters" are indeed subject to constant and capricious regulation and inspection by the government.  The choice granted under Roe v. Wade is a good example of the government decreeing what is permissible in regard to one's own body.  It does not matter how one views the outcome of this ruling and that is especially true in the case of the President.  For him to speak so as a private citizen is perfectly okay but totally unacceptable in his present capacity.  His words carry the solemn weight of the law as well as the spirit.  If he truly wishes to keep the government out of our bedrooms he has four years to work on it.

Mr. Obama tells us in The Audacity of Hope, "…the government should not interject itself into civil society"  but is not his statement on private family matters exactly that?  He seems to back away from responsibility by stating, "Of course, there are limits to the bully pulpit".  A reflective President cannot have it both ways; particularly if he has had a long career teaching law to others.

  • It’s true that government intrudes into our lives regarding a number of issues. I’m not sure just how or why you seem to be holding Obama responsible for this. He has been in office a total of about 20 days or so. A lot of what you speak of has been a part of our laws at a variety of levels for years – some since the ratificaton of the constitution, probably before.

    Obama has indicated that some of the laws pertaining to abortion and same sex marriage (or civil unions) should be addressed toward the relaxing or dissolution of government intervention on these issues.

    It is doubtful that most of the matters you cite will receive much if any scrutiny or change under Obama or anyone else in the forseeable future.

    Obama’s words do NOT carry the “solemn weight of law” as you apparently believe. When it comes down to it, only the law carries that solemn weight.

    It’s not even clear to me just what your position is. Do you want or expect that government should remove itself from ALL those issues cited? I would agree that they should on some, not so much on others.

    Government does have a proper role in limiting individual freedom where certain behaviours are deemed to be harmful to others or to society at large. That’s where the debate begins. It will continue long after Barack Obama retires to a Hawaiian beach to write his memoirs.


  • Hope and Change?

    Wheres the human outcry???

    Kentucky – 500,000 people withou power for a week as dear toll passes 50!!

    Back in DC King Barry orders staff to keep his office at 73 degrees OR ELSE!!!

    How come Obama hasnt led a team of people to help these poor folks? Isnt that what the media demanded of Bush????

    Hope and change? I guess not…

    “Taxes we dont pay no stinking taxes” Tom Dashle and numerous other in King Barrys court!

  • Um, H & C, politicians don’t “care” about “poor” folks. They’re not the ones with the money. Those who have money have the power.

  • Hope and Change?

    Does he care about all of those poor black folks freezing in the dark!!!

    I thought by now King Barry would have personally led millions of military and emergency response personnel with thousands of heaters to melt the ice a free these poor souls?

    Things were supposed to be differnt now…I guess not!

  • “Kentucky – 500,000 people withou power for a week as dear toll passes 50!!

    Hey, they gotta eat somethin’!


  • Hope and Change?

    er….um…you know….Kentucky – 500,000 people withoue power for a week as death toll passes 50!!

  • Jordan Richardson

    H&C, Obama’s given Kentucky the federal disaster declaration (he did that on the 29th). That opens up federal programs to assist Kentucky in recovery efforts.

    So while you might have delusions and biased interpretations about what “King Obama” should do based on your idiotic interpretations of context, the facts aren’t on your side here.

    As for what the media “demanded” of Bush, why don’t you ask “the media” and see where that leads instead of launching empty rhetoric based on your own inherent prejudices and interpretations of history?

    In other words, is it at all possible for you to judge each president and situation based on its current context instead of playing lame comparison games?

  • Hope and Change?

    In other words, is it at all possible for you to BE FAIR AND HONEST and judge KING BARRY the SAME WAY YOU JUDGED BUSH instead of playing THE ROLE OF A PARTISAN LEFT WING LOON?

    Hey you voted for hope and change, and I hope you change! WAKE UP AND SEE THAT YOU WERE ALL FOOLED!

  • Hope and Change?

    “Obama’s given Kentucky the federal disaster declaration (he did that on the 29th)”….Oh I see…people are freezing to death and King Barry…makes a speach and poses for a photo op!

    Sorry I didnt realize he did so much

  • Hope and Change?


    Tom Daschle backed the patron who paid him a million-dollar salary and supplied him with a free car and driver for a job inside the Obama administration, two Democrats said Monday.

    Leo Hindery, whose InterMedia Partners employed the former Senate majority leader, had been mentioned as a possible secretary of commerce or U.S. trade representative.

    Gee…things are sure different now that Barrys running this place, and here is anotherone…


    Nancy Killefer, who failed for a year and a half to pay employment taxes on household help, has withdrawn her candidacy to be the first chief performance officer for the federal government, the White House said Tuesday.

    Gee…unethical rich liberals telling all of us poor working folks how to live..

    Do any Democrats pay their fair share?

  • I didn’t realize people in Kentucky actually HAD electric power. Do they have indoor plumbing now too?


  • I’m there, Dave. They’re at least one hundred years backwards, but to answer your question, yes, they do!

  • Clavos

    Do they have indoor plumbing now too?

    Yes, but only in the public johns; nobody can afford it in their homes…

  • You’re wrong there, Clavos. There’s lots of old money here.

    Obama Annouced His New Kentucky Stimulus Plan…

    $250 Billion for Dentures (What do you get when you have 12 girls kentucky in the same room = a full set of teeth)

    $100 Billion for DNA testing of cousins and siblings who have married each other (may not be enough)

    $35 Billion for Outhouse Building and Renovations Program

    Yes….Barry is on his way with his snow shovel and salt!

  • I don’t give a shit about an outhouse. They don’t even have a coffee house in the whole goddamn town.

  • Does Kentucky have a voter-approved state constitutional amendment which states that marriage shall be between a brother and a sister?

  • No, it didn’t pass through despite large base support. So they’re doing it illegally, I guess, like bootlegging and marijuana crops. But all South is like that, except that Kentucky is the leader.

  • Hope and Change?

    No but I hear King Barry has added a tax credit for marriage between a brothers and sisters as part of his stimulus plan…

  • That just might tip off the scales. An implosion of morons, as if they didn’t have that already.


    I know, as H&C has noted ad nauseam, Obama has been in office 2 entire weeks and hasn’t solved ANY problems yet. What a butthead! That should have been plenty of time to solve every bit of the cluster fuck left by Bush & Co. that took 8 years to develop. Hell, we should all be living on easy street by know.

    Or, maybe H&C is just full of shit!


  • Baritone,

    H&C is not alone. Plenty of “reasonable” people on this site say the same thing: at least he’s being blunt in expressing his opinions. And that’s a plus.

  • Hope and Change?

    Speaking of full of shit…Baritone. People need to realize that King Narry is “Full of Shit”…

    He claimed that no lobbyist would work in his administation then he appoints these former lobbyists for top jobs:

    Eric Holder, attorney general nominee, was registered to lobby until 2004 on behalf of clients including Global Crossing, a bankrupt telecommunications firm [now confirmed].

    Tom Vilsack, secretary of agriculture nominee, was registered to lobby as recently as last year on behalf of the National Education Association.

    William Lynn, deputy defense secretary nominee, was registered to lobby as recently as last year for defense contractor Raytheon, where he was a top executive.

    William Corr, deputy health and human services secretary nominee, was registered to lobby until last year for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, a non-profit that pushes to limit tobacco use.

    David Hayes, deputy interior secretary nominee, was registered to lobby until 2006 for clients, including the regional utility San Diego Gas & Electric.

    Mark Patterson, chief of staff to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, was registered to lobby as recently as last year for financial giant Goldman Sachs.

    Ron Klain, chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, was registered to lobby until 2005 for clients, including the Coalition for Asbestos Resolution, U.S. Airways, Airborne Express and drug-maker ImClone.

    Mona Sutphen, deputy White House chief of staff, was registered to lobby for clients, including
    Angliss International in 2003.

    Melody Barnes, domestic policy council director, lobbied in 2003 and 2004 for liberal advocacy groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, the American Constitution Society and the Center for Reproductive Rights.

    Cecilia Munoz, White House director of intergovernmental affairs, was a lobbyist as recently as last year for the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic advocacy group.

    Patrick Gaspard, White House political affairs director, was a lobbyist for the Service Employees International Union.

    Michael Strautmanis, chief of staff to the president’s assistant for intergovernmental relations, lobbied for the American Association of Justice from 2001 until 2005.

    King Barry has commanded – ” Do not look at the man behind the curtain”……

    Gee…can all the people who voted for this guy really be that STUPID?

  • It’s politics as usual. I know it. You know it. What else is new?

  • Hope and Change?

    Sorry thats King Barry not Narry

  • bliffle

    Getting too abrasive in here , so here’s an old joke about Kentucky: “How do you pronounce the capital of Kentucky, ‘Louieville’ or ‘Lewisville’? Neither it’s pronounced ‘Frankfort’!”

    You can resume bickering over drivel now.

  • Quite right! And I don’t live far from it.

  • He claimed that no lobbyist would work in his administation…

    Not exactly, Einstein. That would have been about as realistic as a CEO insisting that no-one with any prior business experience could have a seat on the board.

    Obama said that he would place stricter restrictions on the employment of lobbyists – a promise which he fulfilled via executive order on his very first day in office.

  • Another mind just checked in after an hour of impasse. Welcome to the thread.

  • Happy to add a bit of nuance to H&C’s cartoon version of contemporary politics.

  • Well, he’s entertainment.

  • Hope and Change?

    Hey Doc on a break? I guess the lines at DMV are slow in the afternoon. Check his appointees and check King Barrys words…

    “When you walk into my administration, you will not be able to work on regulations or contracts directly related to your former employer for two years. And when you leave, you will not be able to lobby the administration throughout the remainder of my term in office.”

    — Manchester, N.H.

    Seven of the names above didnt even meet King Barrys promise…

    So cut yer nonsense and get back to work! I can hear someone blowing their horn waiting for their car to be inspected! Problem the ususal bald tired and leaky muffler ..heh…

    The left loons keep believe that if the repeat the same lies over and over again the will somehow come true…

    Gee…can all the people who voted for King Barry be so stupid?

  • It’s HUD, H&C, not DMV. Different organization, same bullshit. But what seven appointees are you referring to? He’s got three Republicans in Cabinet positions.

  • Hope and Change?

    see #24…….

    Who cares if he appointed Republicans they are no different that the Dems…all living off my tax dollars and eating $100 steak diners at Barrys house every week!

    Seems like Barry has a problem on his hands. He is a guy who never managed anything. It is starting to look like he is way over his head. He cant even control Pelosi and Reid…

    Gee didnt we hear the media beat “Old Man” Mcsame up about the poor vetting process of Palin? Hmmmmm how come Andrea (Chronic Yeast Infection) Mitchell isnt attacking Barry for being inept as she did “Old Man” Mcsame?

    I wonder….”I am sorry boys and girls..there is no Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or Hope McChangey”

  • It looks then like we’re all fucked. My last $100 steak dinner was when I was making my own money. Nobody invited me. I must say, though. You’re politically astute. I wouldn’t want you for my enemy.

  • H&C, I’d love to respond to you in more detail, but it’s at least two minutes until my next break. Until then, I would draw your attention to Section 3 of the aforementioned executive order.

    Once you’ve read and digested that, you can go fly a kite.

    Or just fuck off…

    DIRECTV Censors Gaza Strip TV Ad
    by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

    Washington, DC (February 3) — The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation announced today that satellite television provider DIRECTV is refusing to accept a paid advertisement from the organization about the U.S. role in Israel’s war on and siege of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

  • Hope and Change?

    Gee kite flying I love to fly kites….

    Arent you disappointed that the messaiah who promised change just delivers the “same old warn out” democratic bad ideas. Barry is composite of all that is wrong with liberal Dems…

    1. Jimmy Carters International Policy – The world laughed at us as weak limp wristed punks

    2. Ex- Clinton flunkies – I didnt like the guy but he was smart . He made all these morons around him look good. All they had to do was to pick up after him. With Barry being an empty suit they look like the fools they are.

    3. The Poster Children for left wing limo loons…gee did someting happen to Tommy D today?

    4. A stimulus bill with no stimulus.(I did hear that there is $250 for new plastic chairs for a lunch room at a Northern California HUD office)

    How can the people who voted for him be sooooo stupid?

    Gee…where did I put my kite!

  • “Ex- Clinton flunkies – I didnt like the guy but he was smart.”

    That’s a start, H&C, a common ground. Even you admit it.

  • Cindy DiGeso

    H&C can u please call DirectTV and tell them they are robbing their stockholders by not taking paid ads?

  • Jimmy Carters International Policy – The world laughed at us as weak limp wristed punks

    That’s funny – earlier on you were claiming that the world didn’t give a damn about America and her policies. (Nice homophobic slur there, BTW.)

    How can the people who voted for him be sooooo stupid?

    Didn’t you say that you voted for him, H&C?

  • Cindy DiGeso

    I mean, when yu are done flying your kite, of course.

  • Hope and Change?

    The world saw Carter for what he was…a typically left wing loon with too much “book smarts” and no street smarts…sorta like Barry…

    And yes I held my…nose…and..(choke…gasp)…voted for Old Man Mcsame…between and Barry the it was like voting in a Port-O-John in a 100 degree August day!

    H&C spends 10 hours a day running his Honda generator by his trailer to stay on line and surf kook blogs to find things to come over here and post.

    I challenge you to comment on something that shows original thought.

  • H&C, A Mr. Spellczyk called for you. Says you haven’t talked to him in ages.

  • Hope and Change?

    “I challenge you to comment on something that shows original thought.”

    Posting the Truth about King Barry on BC is “Original Thought”…I challenge the “believers” to show original thought and challenge their beliefs…..

    Again rather than debate the issues the loons deflect, detract and attack the messenger….

    I cannot believe the people who voted for King Barry could be that STUPID!

    h&c: “I cannot believe the people who voted for King Barry could be that STUPID!”

    oh, we know it’s stupid… but it’s so much fun.

    and who is “presiden ronal reagan?”

    “Hey Doc….cut and paste…your funny!”

    see, now, grammar is a funny thing. if you had made the correct choice of “you’re” in that sentence, it wouldn’t come out looking like a threat against doc’s nethers.

    today, we have learned that you’re a perverted (here), homophobic (or was that yesterday?), lying (when you claimed to watch the maddow show), racist (with your “ebonics” comment).

    it’s okay, because you’re just one man. jom-jom.

  • Hope and Change?

    Zing…pretty ironic..Your best work today were “cut and pastes” of my posts!!!

    I do watch Madcow..you have to see what the enemy is up too

  • zingzing

    ahh, but you don’t understand what’s going on, obviously.

    or maybe you just don’t what day it is… ok, today is called “today.” “last night” refers to the dark period before “today.” got it so far? there’s this concept called “yesterday” that–this is where it gets complicated, so make sure you’re following me closely–“yesterday” changes as often as “today” does, and “today” becomes “yesterday” during the dark period we call “night.” but not “last night.” it was still “today” “last night” until it was “yesterday,” which happens at a specific moment in time called “midnight.” still, people, if a person stays up past “midnight,” which is really the end of one day and the beginning of another, but is, in many respects, truly the middle of the night, then this time period before sleep also becomes part of “yesterday” or “last night,” even though it is technically “today.”

    right? ok. so now that we have these concepts down, when did you watch the maddow show?

  • zingzing

    and i’ll cut and past your posts whenever i want to. it doesn’t make it ironic. do you know what irony is?

  • zingzing

    “you have to see what the enemy is up too”

    that should be “up, as well.”

  • Breaking news: The FBI is investigating and the Department of Homeland Security has ordered the imposition of a no-fly zone around an area of New Jersey where a man’s head exploded for no apparent reason in a public library at about 5.45 this evening.

    An FBI spokesman said that he could not rule out either terrorism or zingzing at this stage of the inquiry.

    The victim, who has not been named, was well-known to library staff. Senior librarian Agnes Thwack told reporters that the man spent most days on one of the public internet terminals, muttering ‘King Barry… hope and change…’ to himself and slowly tracing the words on the screen with one finger. Eyewitness reports suggest that he was doing this with particular slowness immediately before the explosion and was showing signs of extreme distress.

    Wall Street Journal Report

    The White House’s nominee for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Leon Panetta, has earned more than $700,000 in speaking and consulting fees since the beginning of 2008, with some of the payments coming from troubled financial firms and from a firm that invests in contractors for federal national security agencies, according to financial disclosures released Wednesday.

    Mr. Panetta received $56,000 from Merrill Lynch & Co. for two speeches and $28,000 for a speech for Wachovia Corp., according to disclosures released ahead of Thursday’s scheduled Senate hearing on Mr. Panetta’s nomination.

    Both Merrill and Wachovia reported big losses last year and were acquired by larger firms. The Wachovia honorarium was dated October 30, and the last Merrill Lynch honorarium was dated October 11, according to disclosure forms filed by Mr. Panetta in connection with his nomination. At the time, Bank of America had agreed to a rescue of Merrill Lynch; Wachovia had agreed to be acquired by Wells Fargo & Co.

    it’s BUFFOON! doesn’t your computer show you when you’ve made a spelling error? seriously. even a buffoon can spell with some amount of correctness. especially when the damn computer is pretty much screams “wrong! wrong! wrong!” at you.

    and really, obama has done quite well so far, i think. lots of good things happening. if you don’t like it, it’s probably a good thing from my perspective, wouldn’t you think?

  • Hope and Change?

    Yes…the sun comes out he..King Barry… The Lord of the Morons…is still a BUFFOON!

    1. Didnt he say the recovery is an urgent matter and cant wait Butttttt….

    Paul Volcker has grown increasingly frustrated over delays in setting up the economic advisory group President Barack Obama picked the former Federal Reserve chairman to lead.

    2. Ohhhhh heres the change we were looking for…so a couple of minorities bark and Barry jumps…or is it bacause Gregg is a white guy? Hmmmm…. I wonder if Acorn will get the grants to do the census…

    The director of the Census Bureau will report directly to the White House and not the secretary of Commerce, according to a senior White House official.

    The decision came after black and Hispanic leaders raised questions about Commerce Secretary nominee Judd Gregg ’s commitment to funding the census.

    3. King Flounder does it again…promises one thing and does another….

    Drug Enforcement Administration agents this week raided four medical marijuana shops in California, contrary to President Obama’s campaign promises to stop the raids.

    I have to admit, I thought Barry was going to be like Carter and I was WRONG..VERY VERY WRONG .thats right “I screwed up”…..I would never have admited I was wrong when Bush was in office…

    A little research finds that many Government Workers are a BIG part of the governments’ problem as it relates to our current financial crisis.

    Why if federal, state and local employers just enforced current policy, much if not all, of the dead wood would be fired, costs would go down, productivity would increase and taxes would recede.

    Let’s say for example, a government worker in California spends a high percentage of their work time posting loony ideas and profanity on internet blogs. Is that really a good use of our tax dollars? If that person’s supervisor would just read and enforce the current California state and municipal employee guidelines they could simply fire this person for “cause” saving the taxpayers thousands of dollars in salary and pension dollars.

    Here are a just a sampling of current State of California Employee Internet Usage Policies. Agencies such as MV, Police, Fire and even those that agencies that manage HUD programs are under these policies. These are just a few related excerpts,

    A Prohibited Uses. Users are prohibited from using information technology resources for any of the following activities;

    -Engaging in unlawful or malicious activities,

    -Sending, receiving or accessing pornographic materials,

    -Engaging in abusive, threatening, profane, racist, sexist or otherwise objectionable language;

    -Engaging in personal or commercial activities for profit,

    -Sending any non-work related messages;

    -Playing games or accessing non-business related applications,

    -Creating unnecessary or unauthorized network traffic that interferes with the efficient use of County information technology resources (e.g., spending excessive amounts of time on the
    Internet, engaging in online chat groups, listening to online radio stations),

    Soooo much waste…. it’s no wonder why ONLY the incompetent employees in the public sector love King Barry so much. He will give them more money to goof off while the rest of us pick up the tab.

  • State of California employee internet access policy, eh?

    Well, it’s a good thing I don’t work for the State then.

    Not that it would matter, because what you selectively quote is actually from the Los Angeles County internet policy.

    I was wondering why you hadn’t provided a citation…

    And surely even a moron would know that police and fire departments are run by cities and counties, not by the state.

    Nice try, but full of shit as usual, H&C.

  • I don’t see why monkeys have to be continually insulted on this thread

  • El B, that’s insulting to monkeys.

  • Hope and Change?

    As a loooooooooooooooong term government employee you are probably aware what i quoted are best practices in employment. It is obvious that some in government do not have a moral compass or ethics so they must attack someone who shines a light on government waste and ineffectiveness.

    Doing illegal and immoral things are wrong…no matter how you try a protect such behavior stealing from tax payers is wrong.

    Based upon your work ethics maybe there is a place for you in King Barrys court of tax ripoffs and fools.

  • H&C, you didn’t shine any light except the one you think comes out of your own ass. You attacked me personally. You reap what you sow, kid.

    You know jack shit about my work ethic. And coming from someone who claims to be a successful business entrepreneur but seems to spend all day obsessing on Barack Obama and writing mindless comments on blogs, you can expect to be regarded as full of what really does come out of your ass until you can demonstrate otherwise.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s break time and I have to get back to my busy schedule of writing abusive e-mails, surfing porn sites and playing Tetris.

  • Cindy D

    H&C you can always look on the bright side.

  • Hope and Change?

    Ahwwwwwwwww Cindy…I think you like me…shucks

    Gee whats with Dread…he gets so emotional.

  • I would like to retract part of my previous comment addressed to H&C. I now realize that what I said was based on an unfair assessment of his character.

    The first sentence of paragraph 2, line 1 should have read:

    ‘You know jack shit about my work ethic anything at all.’

    There, that’s done. And now I shall take to heart something a wise man once said about wrestling with pigs.

    Work ethic is a set of values based on hard work and diligence. It is also a belief in the moral benefit of work and its ability to enhance character.

    just say no (thanks)

    Glad to see your keeping honest and removed “work ethic” from your post….why blemish a perfect record!

    Now back to things that matter…more proof that King Barry is no more but a puppet for the looney left…

    Harry Reid said, “The president instructed me to work with them if it’s going to help the legislation.” And a White House official indicated that the decision had been made to leave the matter “to Harry”

    Based on that we are all doomed….its up to Harry!!
