I just got done ordering more business cards. That is the quote from the Bible that I put on them. Are we doing that? Are we speaking up? I am not sure.
The healthcare bill got passed tonight. I guess I am not super upset about it. Well, now that Obama put out an executive order that held up the Hyde amendment. But, what about the Hyde amendment? The Hyde amendment allows government funds (our tax dollars) to pay for abortions in the case of rape, incest and health of the mother. I am not really okay with that. I mean, it is better than nothing, but children are still being terminated because of what? Because of how they were conceived? That is not right. Just because a baby was conceived in rape doesn't mean its life is not valuable. It is still a person. I saw so many women who qualified for government funded abortions in Texas...under the Hyde amendment.
I was glad to see that our congressman, Chet Edwards (democrat) voted no on the health care bill. I think it is probably a little self-serving since he is up for re-election in a super conservative district...but that's okay. He said in our town hall meeting that he would not vote for a bill that included abortion. He stuck to his word. I am going to send him a note of appreciation. I am sure he will get many. I want mine to be one in the stack.
I am actually for a health care overhaul. I believe that all children should be covered under insurance. I think it is a tragedy that so many people are uninsured. We want to blame them for not having insurance...but so many times it is not their fault. I can't believe how much private insurance costs!! It is outrageous. I mean, if you had to choose between rent and insurance, I think most people are going to pay rent. I agree with Obama...it is sad that the US (the most powerful nation in the world) doesn't make insuring our people a priority. Maybe this new initiative will help with that. I don't know. I think we may be going down the toilet. We will just have to pray and see.
I just made an "appointment" with my friend to talk on the phone. Haha! That is what my life has become. Full of appointments. So, tomorrow at 11am I will be on the phone with my friend. :) I love him...I can't wait to chat.
I am going to Houston tomorrow for a TV interview with CBN again. I hate being on TV. You know how they say the camera adds 10 pounds? Well, TV makes my face look like I am having an allergic reaction to something. I swear I have 4 chins. Ugh. I hope that is just on TV...it could be all of the time. I think I have the opposite of anorexia. I look in the mirror and think, "I don't look so bad." Then I look at pictures of me and see the reality. Haha.
I have to call a guy tomorrow about setting up my website. I don't have any idea how to do that, so I have to have other people do it. I want to put a calendar on there so people can see where I am speaking.
I guess that is it for now. I leave for New Jersey and Canada on Tuesday. Then I have a pro-life event in Texas on Saturday...but Doug and Grace are going, too. It will be fun. Busy week. Busy month.
