I know in your mind, you can think of the times America was attacked. One is Dec. 7th, that’s Pearl Harbor Day. The other is Sept. 11th, and that’s the day the terrorists attacked. I want you to remember Aug. 1, 2012, the attack on our religious freedom. That is a day that will live in infamy, along with those other dates.

Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa. comparing the birth control coverage requirement under the Affordable Care Act to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. 

Seriously.

To Rep. Kelly, evidently the now no to low-cost proper care and maintenance of ladyparts via preventative care is just like that one time thousands died when terrorists crashed airplanes into the Twin Towers. IT’S JUST LIKE THAT YOU GUYS!

These things have one thing in common: Nothing. I didn’t fly a plane into your place of business or home, killing scores of people, just so that I could get yearly gynecological exams and breast cancer screenings counted as things which must covered. Nor did any other person. So no. It’s not like those dates that really will live in infamy.

See, what happened is this thing called “a law” was passed by elected officials in the U.S. House and Senate. Now bear with me here… after that, President Obama (or, as members of your ilk call him, that Kenya Muslim Socialist Zombie Nazi) signed the law. Then, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law. It’s not like you didn’t know this was coming, bro.

So no planes. No blitz-attack terrorism. Just government doing its thing.

Now, go find a corner, sit in it, and think about what you’ve said. When you’re ready to be a grown-up, we’ll talk.
