Will you act at once to stop President Obama and the abortion lobby from unleashing billions of tax dollars for the destruction of innocent, unborn human life?
If so, I hope you will sign the petition to your two United States Senators and Congressman.
The fact is the Obama Administration and pro-abortion politicians in the last Congress pushed through a litany of radical plans to fund their friends in the abortion lobby at a cost of up to 12 billion of your tax dollars.
For instance, they rammed through legislation that:
*** Will directly channel $7 billion in taxpayer funding to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood under the guise of “community health services;”
*** Will force ALL taxpayers to buy “government approved” insurance plans that MUST pay for abortive drugs and procedures;
*** Forces taxpayers to spend millions more to promote the abortion industry’s newest abortifacient drugs;
*** Opens the floodgates of tax dollars for abortion under the guise of “foreign aid,” side-stepping Ronald Reagan’s long-standing “Mexico City Policy.”
That’s why I hope you will sign your petition to the National Pro-Life Alliance at once by clicking here.
Here are the first 15 of 35 statistics.
The rest are at the link.
#1 Median household income in the United States is down 7.8 percent since December 2007 after adjusting for inflation.
#2 There are 5.6 million less jobs than there were when the last recession began back in late 2007.
#3 The U.S. government says that the number of Americans “not in the labor force” rose by 17.9 million between 2000 and 2011. During the entire decade of the 1980s, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” rose by only 1.7 million.
#4 In 2007, the unemployment rate for the 20 to 29 age bracket was about 6.5 percent. Today, the unemployment rate for that same age group is about 13 percent.
#5 In 2007, 73.2 percent of all young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 that were not enrolled in school had jobs. Today, that number has declined to 65 percent.
#6 Back in the year 2000, more than 50 percent of all Americans teens had a job. This past summer, only 29.6% of all American teens had a job.
#7 When Barack Obama entered the White House, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.
#8 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is nearly three times as long as it was back in the year 2000.
#9 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.
#10 According to the Obama administration, about 20 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs back in the year 2000. Today, about 5 percent of all jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.
#11 Sadly, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been shut down since 2001.
#12 Back in 1980, less than 30% of all jobs in the United States were low income jobs. Today, more than 40% of all jobs in the United States are low income jobs.
#13 The U.S. trade deficit with China during 2011 was 28 times larger than it was back in 1990.
#14 About twice as many new homes were sold in the United States in 1965 as are being sold today.
#15 Home prices in the 4th quarter of 2011 were four percent lower than they were during the 4th quarter of 2010. Overall, U.S. home prices are 34 percent lower than they were back at the peak of the housing bubble.
Speaking of that iPad, it appears many people are going ga-ga over it. It’s got a camera, don’t you know? I can see events now where thousands of people hold up this 10? rectangle to take pictures or film.
How impractical is that?
And bandwidt costs? Astronmical!!!
As the graphic below shows, you’ll be paying the same price for either 2GB or 5GB worth of monthly data on either carrier at $30 and $50 monthly, respectively; AT&T also offers a smaller 250MB plan for $14.99, and Verizon offers a higher 10GB plan for $80 per month. The trouble is, none of those data caps are actually very high when you start factoring things in like streaming video, audio, beaming high-resolution photographs (one of the features in the new iPhoto for iPad application), or syncing all of your various media files using Apple’s own iCloud storage service. Even some apps, particularly games, can clock in at hundreds of megabytes.
Combine the realities of multimedia file size and a blazing fast connection that allows transfer of said files at unprecedented speeds, and you have a recipe for potentially expensive disaster.
One careless download of a 1080p high-definition movie from the iTunes Store over 4G could eat up your entire monthly plan and then some. In fact, if you could achieve download speeds at the theoretical maximum 72Mbps of LTE, you could blow through a 5GB plan in just under 10 minutes
It’s Official… Despite Obama’s Many, Many Promises, Obamacare Funds Abortion After All
It looks like it’s official. Obamacare will pay for abortions.
Lief News reported:
It’s official. The concern pro-life organizations had about the ObamaCare legislation funding abortions has been confirmed, as the Obama administration has issued the final rules on abortion funding governing the controversial health care law.
Nestled within the “individual mandate” in the Obamacare act — that portion of the Act requiring every American to purchase government — approved insurance or pay a penalty — is an “abortion premium mandate.” This mandate requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay a separate premium from their own pockets to fund abortion. As a result, many pro-life Americans will have to decide between a plan that violates their consciences by funding abortion, or a plan that may not meet their health needs.
