He and the Catholic Church are not alone in advocating unrestricted illegal immigration. The Mormon Church, Evangelical and other Protestant churches preach the merits of accepting these illegal immigrants, too.

Roxy is a furry, purry bundle of love with one spot of gray fur on the top of her head. Nothing makes this sweet girl happier than being with her people.

It would be interesting to see just how long she’d be content to stay put in your arms or lap.

Dear American citizens:
When the Republicans talk about “Affordable Heathcare,” one of the options they tout is “Repeal and Replace.” Given their past history, a Republican “Replace” option concerns me more than anything else. Republicans have always prohibited Medicare — the single largest buyer — from attempting to negotiate drug prices, consistent with the pharmaceutical companies’ philosophy that completely unrestrained prices and profits are necessary to fund the risk-taking of research and development. Medicare is required by Congress to accept the pharmaceutical companies’ prices without comparison or negotiation, add 6 percent to it, and pay it. As a perpetual gift to the pharmaceutical companies, when Part D of Medicare was passed in 2003, Congress prohibited Medicare from negotiating altogether. There were some reciprocal gifts from the pharmaceutical companies to the cooperating Congressmen, as might be expected.
