A physician explains why she is refusing to participate in Obamacare

“All Your Labors Are Belong to Us!”

…Obamacare, the “law of the land”, contains ever-changing-at-the-whim-of-HHS, politically-expedient mandates, rewards, penalties, rules and regulations with which I cannot rationally or morally treat my patients and run a practice, much-less interpret, implement, or comply.

Millions of Americans have lost coverage because of the healthcare law and must now shop on a defective, insecure government website and sign up for more expensive policies through Federal and State exchanges. Only by logging in as a prospective patient did my office manager and I discover that Aetna was selling plans for which I am a provider-effectively selling my services without even asking, much less informing  me that my services would be sold on such a site, under the auspices of new terms with which I will not comply.

Then, after the fact, I received a form letter informing me of Aetna’s “new allowables”. I will not sell my services under such terms. While treated as such, patients and doctors are not commodities worthy of such impersonal, inconsiderate, and cavalier treatment. We choose dignity and personal service over disrespect and form letters…

Damage control at the Catholic Archdiocese of Newark

Monsignor John E. Doran, the No. 2 official within the archdiocese, has stepped down due to “operational failures” and will no longer hold a leadership position, according to letter to parishioners by Archbishop John J. Myers.

The resignation came after Bergen County, New Jersey, prosecutors arrested Father Michael Fugee on Monday on accusations of violating a 2007 judicial order to avoid working with children after he confessed years before to groping a teenage boy, according to court documents.

“The seriousness of the situation with Father Fugee necessitated a thoughtful and effective response,” Meyers wrote in the letter posted on the archdiocese website.

“Appointing a new Vicar General will be just one step in a comprehensive plan to review, and where necessary, strengthen our internal protocols and ensure we are doing everything we can to safeguard the children of our community.”

“His Holiness Benedict XVI, Pope-Emeritus”

Giving an official word to one of the imminent post-papacy’s most-sought questions, at today’s transition briefing, the Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi finally confirmed that, upon his resignation Thursday evening, Papa Ratzi will be known as “His Holiness Benedict XVI, Pope-Emeritus,” and retain the signature clothing of the pontiff’s office.

Saint Pope Benedict XVI?

stbenedict

by Doug Lawrence

Santo Subito! (Sainthood now!)

Pope Benedict’s resignation presents the Catholic Church with an opportunity that is almost without precedent. So why wait for death to declare the man a saint, when we can have a living saint … right here and right now … working to help resolve all the various problems of the modern world?

All of this can be done simultaneously, with the election of the new Pope.

First … let’s get the new Pope elected. Then … let’s get that new Pope to declare Benedict XVI a living saint … where Benedict might then function much as former President (Democratic Party Saint) William Jefferson Clinton did, during  Barack Obama’s recent campaign … but hopefully, at a somewhat higher level.

It can become a whole, new tradition … and the Catholic Church might never be the same, again.

Our Protestant brethren should have no problem with this, since they already consider every Christian to be a saint. Nor should our elder brothers in faith have any difficulties with it, since Benedict is already a proven and quite malleable friend.

To get the Muslims on board, we can publish a story in L’Osservatore Romano about Benedict’s mystical night journeys, riding a white horse, regularly traveling from St. Peter’s Basilica, up to heaven, and back. Any good Muslim will tell you that saints and prophets are known to do stuff like that!

Solidly traditional Catholics may also find this hard to swallow … and I admit that it does have a vaguely familiar “ring” to it … but I say … if you’re going to break the mold … then bust it all to hell! Look at how well it worked for the the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and the Catholic Church, after Vatican II. All the more reason to proceed with the greatest haste!

A living saint with all the resources of the universal Church at his disposal, complete with current Facebook and Twitter accounts, but with none of the onerous, day to day responsibilities. Even President Barack Obama and his false prophet, David Axelrod, can’t top that!

If you believe David Petraeus really resigned as CIA director over an extramarital affair, you probably also believe that Muhammad filmmaker Mark Basseley Youssef is in prison because of a parole violation.

It is much more likely that both Petraeus and Youssef herald the dawning of a new style in American politics – or else Barack Obama is the luckiest man alive.

It has already been widely noted that the timing of Petraeus’s resignation was perfect for Barack Obama: on the same day that the House Foreign Affairs Committee announced that it would be calling the CIA director to testify about the ever-widening Benghazi scandal, he abruptly resigned over an extramarital affair. Now Petraeus won’t be testifying, and one of the most important witnesses as to what really happened when jihadists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, and who ordered those who would have defended Ambassador Chris Stevens and his colleagues to “stand down,” has been removed from the scene. Petraeus had already said that he issued no such order, which makes it strongly likely that Obama himself did so; but now Petraeus won’t be around to say so one way or the other.
