Kids Need Permission to Eat Oreos But Not to Get an Abortion

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

More liberal lack of logic you need a permission to eat an Oreo, but you can murder your unborn child without your parents knowing.

 

We live in a topsy-turvy moral/immoral world.

There’s a Bible verse for it

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;

Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isa. 5:20).

If an underage child living at home with her parents wants to get an abortion, the law says that she does not need to get permission from her parents. It’s all about “personal choice.”

But as most conservatives know, personal choice is a one-way street. School choice is out. The choice not to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding will lead to liberal bullying and civil sanctions that will close down a business.

Obamacare eliminated a lot of personal choice. Try to choose to opt out of Social Security. It will never happen. It can’t be done.

It’s OK for a teenage girl to kill her unborn baby, but heaven forbid should this same teenage girl make the independent choice to eat a Double-Stuf Oreo cookie.

Liberals are the biggest hypocrites around. Choice only goes so far. Sugar and fat may not be good for a person in high doses, but killing an unborn baby is all about freedom of choice, except, of course, for the baby.

Consider that New York State has just passed a law that will permit abortions during any time during a pregnancy for any reason deemed “relevant to the well-being of the patient” including physical, emotional, psychological, and familial factors, and the mother’s age.

Assemblywoman Deborah J. Glick, a sponsor of the killing unborn children bill, “has also been active in protecting animals.”

This is OK:

This isn’t:

The following is from Reason.org:

“There are 18-wheelers with brake problems, hungry bears just stumbling out of hibernation, and lawnmowers that suddenly shift into reverse. And then there’s the unparalleled danger of Double Stuf Oreos. Thank goodness this teacher requires parents to sign off on cookie consumption—if they dare.

Harry Reid to Retire From Senate in 2016

2 Comments

This is from The New York Times.

How close are criminal charges to being leveled against Dingy Harry Reid?

Dingy Harry as managed to become like most DemocRats in Congress a multimillionaire on Congressional pay.

 

WASHINGTON — Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance.

Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. 1 exercise accident at his Las Vegas home, said he had been contemplating retiring from the Senate for months. He said his decision was not attributable either to the accident or to his demotion to minority leader after Democrats lost the majority in November’s midterm elections.

“I understand this place,” Mr. Reid said. “I have quite a bit of power as minority leader.”

He has already confounded the new Republican majority this year by holding Democrats united against a proposal to gut the Obama administration’s immigration policies as well as a human-trafficking measure Democrats objected to over an anti-abortion provision.

“I want to be able to go out at the top of my game,” said Mr. Reid, who used a sports metaphor about athletes who try to hang on too long. “I don’t want to be a 42-year-old trying to become a designated hitter.”

Mr. Reid’s tenure has become increasingly combative in recent years and included a procedural change on nominations that infuriated Republicans. He also came under fire for blocking floor debate, and even some of his Democratic colleagues suggested that he was stifling the Senate. Just this week, he alienated House Democrats who thought he was sabotaging a compromise on Medicare.

His departure at the end of 2016 will create an opening both at the top of the Senate Democratic hierarchy and in a Senate contest that would have been a megaspending slugfest in the presidential battleground of Nevada. Conservatives such as Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who were a favorite target of Reid criticism in 2014, would have spared no expense in trying to oust him.

Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York, who helped Democrats capture the Senate in 2006 and has led their political messaging operation, is considered the favorite to succeed Mr. Reid as party leader. Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat, could also be a contender for the job, but it is unclear how strongly he would pursue it.

In Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto, the state’s former attorney general, is considered a strong Democratic candidate with Mr. Reid out; the Republican field will be fluid and is likely to include Michael Roberson, a State Senate leader.

Mr. Reid had previously insisted he was running and said he was confident that he could have triumphed next year had he decided to seek a sixth term. The onetime amateur boxer noted he might not have even run in 2010 if Republicans had not made such a point of trying to unseat him.

He also said he was worried his race would consume campaign money that would be needed in other competitive states as Democrats try to regain control of the Senate.

“I think it is unfair for me to be soaking up all the money to be re-elected with what we are doing in Maryland, in Pennsylvania, in Missouri, in Florida,” he said. “These are big, expensive states.”

First elected to the House in 1982, the former trial lawyer and head of the Nevada gaming commission won his Senate seat in 1986 and joined the leadership about a decade later. Mr. Reid took over the top job in 2005 after Tom Daschle, then the leader, lost his re-election bid.

After a tough election night in 2004, some other top Democrats suggested they might want to consider a leadership bid, but Mr. Reid had the election sewn up by the next day. He is the longest-serving member of Congress from Nevada, and the second-longest-serving Democratic leader after Mike Mansfield of Montana.

Like his chief adversary, Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, Mr. Reid learned the workings of the Senate in the trenches as the vote-counting whip and takes pride in his floor expertise.

Unhappy with the slow pace of judicial and executive branch confirmations, Mr. Reid engineered a change in Senate procedure in 2013 that allowed Democrats to overcome filibusters against nominees with a simple majority. The change led to a flurry of new judges being named to important appeals courts, though Republicans accused him of changing the nature of the Senate and running roughshod over the minority.

After the election of Mr. Obama and Democratic gains in 2008, Mr. Reid did the deal-making and vote counting required to push through the new health care law with no Republican votes and the economic stimulus with just a handful.

“I am so happy that we were able to get the health care bill passed,” he said, acknowledging that there were times he wondered why he did not give up. “Like a fool, I kept coming back.”

After opposing a more forgiving immigration policy earlier in his career, Mr. Reid became a champion of granting legal status to immigrants living in the country illegally, an evolution he attributes to his relationship with his state’s growing Hispanic population. He was crucial to Senate passage of bipartisan, comprehensive immigration legislation in 2013 — a bill the House did not take up — and said the advocates for the immigrants would ultimately prevail.

“We have won that debate,” said Mr. Reid, who has also made pushing for expanded use of alternative energy a legislative priority.

His strict management of the Senate the past few years became an issue in the 2014 elections as Republicans accused him of stifling debate and denying even Democrats an opportunity to push their priorities on the Senate floor. He blamed Republicans for the legislative gridlock, citing their deep opposition to Mr. Obama and their determination to deny him any victories.

Mr. Reid said he believed the Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United case that allowed a flood of money from superrich Americans into politics had been a disaster for Congress, even as he acknowledged that he had to adopt some of the same tactics himself to keep Democrats competitive. His push for reining in unlimited spending is likely to be a priority for him in his remaining months.

Mr. Reid said he had seen one important change for the better in the Senate: an influx of female senators.

“This place is so much better because of women,” he said. “Men and women are different, and they have changed the dynamic of the Senate.”

 

Watch Deneen Borelli Debate The Death Tax on Fox & Friends

This is from Deneen Borelli. 

Deneen takes Nomiki Konist to school, but Nomiki was   sadly absent during the lesson.

Representative Linda Sanchez (D-CA) confirmed liberals believe having wealth is unfair and justifies the need for taxing it.

During a hearing that exposed the adverse consequences of the death tax, Sanchez complained that individuals getting food stamps meet work requirements and are drug tested while individuals receiving an inheritance don’t have any social obligations.

I debated the death tax issue with Nomiki Konist on Fox & Friends Weekend with co-host Anna Kooiman.

WASHINGTON: ‘ SENATOR HARRY REID WILL NOT SEEK REELECTION IN 2016 & SCHUMER IS HEAVY FAVORITE ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON:March.27: Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid will not seek reelection in 2016, his office says.

New York Sen. Charles Schumer is the heavy favorite to replace Sen. Harry Reid (Nev.) as Senate Democratic leader, and may not even face competition in his bid to lead the caucus.

Schumer’s aides and allies have long made clear that he would seek to replace Reid when he retired.

They say he has broad support among his colleagues after helping to engineer the Democratic takeover of the Senate in 2006 and the filibuster-proof majority in 2008 during his stints as chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Union objects to disabled student using faculty restroom

1 Comment

This is from Yahoo News.

The union thugs and 18 female teachers object to this 10 year old handicapped girl using a the teachers’ bathroom.

 This young girls handicap causes problems for her being able to climb stairs to get to the other bathrooms.

Shame on these teachers and the union thugs they claim to be there for the students.

It is quite obvious the union thugs and the teachers are out for themselves and not the students.

MUNHALL, Pa. (AP) — A teachers union says a special needs student at a Pittsburgh-area elementary school shouldn’t be allowed to use a faculty restroom even though school officials say it’s difficult for the girl to climb steps to reach a student restroom on another floor.

 The Steel Valley Education Association filed a grievance last month, accompanied by a petition from 18 female teachers. The grievance says allowing the 10-year-old to use the restroom on the lower level of Park Elementary School in Munhall violates the teachers’ contract. The grievance says the contract requires the district to provide “lavatory facilities exclusively for employees.”

“The bathrooms that have been designated as faculty bathrooms shall be exclusively used by the faculty,” the grievance says.

The Steel Valley School Board planned to take up the issue Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1CSgONX ) reported.

District Superintendent Ed Wehrer considered the grievance but said the girl could still use the lower-level restroom. He said federal law requires Steel Valley to meet the needs of students with disabilities. No other alternatives met the girl’s needs, he said, and noted that the student is the only non-faculty member using the restroom.

The student’s mother told the newspaper her daughter has chronic lung disease, pulmonary hypertension and foot problems, and is also autistic.

District official Diane Borges, who oversees pupil personnel and special services, said the restroom on the lower level of the school in Munhall is the only one available. Another one located in a special education room is now taken up by a ventilation unit.

Borges said that two other faculty restrooms are in the school building and that she believes the district accommodations fulfill the teachers’ contract.
