So, my 17 year old son can’t take allergy medicine to school without a signed note from his doctor. He can’t have it on his person, it must be administered by a nurse. My daughters when they were still in school couldn’t take Midol with them to school because it’s a “drug” and must have a note signed, again, by a doctor because we’re all concerned about “the children”. But girls as young as 15 and opponents of that want the age limit struck completely, can take a pill that will cause them to spontaneously abort any fetus that might have been there but maybe not.
So what happens when this girl, not under a physician care begins to hemorrhage or what happens if she’s allergic to this drug. No one knows she took it except the people at the pharmacy and will they remember? Will someone connect the dots when half of them are missing. This is typical progressive bandaid theology. Don’t tackle the hard stuff like making it unprofitable, unpleasant and a stigma to have sex indiscriminately. It’s irresponsible, it’s dangerous and it’s stupid, especially at an age where they change their minds about what their favorite color is almost hourly (some from one minute to the next) but heaven forbid we should tell the little darlings they can’t do something.
Next is without an article because the Lame Scream Press won’t touch this with a 10 ft feather boa. Say they manage to pass a gay marriage amendment. There is a real move to “rename” or “rebrand” marriage to fit in with it’s newer, hipper, gayer, image. Now I don’t have any idea what they’ll call it. I want to know if the participants are going to have to find different titles. Mother, father were gender specific. So are there going to be two mothers or two fathers? If not who’s going to be Daddy? Is it going to be a permanent thing or are they going to try it on like a new pair of shoes to see how it fits? Maybe it will be a switch out kind of thing. One day one partner is Mom the next day they’re Dad? How do those outside of the “what ever it’s called” know who’s doing what, are the partners going to wear a name tag, “Hi, I’m Andrew, I am the Dad today”? Who gets what jobs, who get’s to be the one to tell the girls what it’s like to menstruate or to explain wet dreams to boys? Men of course know all about menses and women as well know all there is to know about how boys mature and what their issues and problems are. A man can teach a daughter everything she needs to know about being a female because he “feels like a woman.” Since he’s never been a woman how would he know????? Of course he doesn’t know. Being female is a physical state of being, you are born that way, physically. How you feel and what you make of those feeling is totally a decisions “you” make and make up. So please forgive me if I have very little faith that this particular social experiment is going to be productive. As with the other experiments progressives have foisted upon us in the last 100+ years it will destroy more of the societal fabric and we will sink lower into the chaotic abyss.
You just can’t make this stuff up, seriously. Here we have a company, Koch, based out of Wichita, Kansas, they have diversified their business so they own a whole host of different kinds of companies. People flock to work for them. They treat their employees honestly, they do business with integrity and they partner in the community to actually “help” instead of making publicity so they can market their “brand” (they let their marketing department do that- when they help they actually HELP). The brothers have a serious Libertarian streak and they promote those who are for capitalism, freedom, liberty and the Constitutional Rights we are all guaranteed. What they are not is a “Soros” type outfit. They don’t manipulate, they don’t prevaricate and they don’t lie.
So the Tribune Co. is dying. Newspapers are becoming things of the past. Not because of the internet, not because of cell phones, not because of cable news. No they’re dying because they have become so entrenched in liberalism that no one believes anyone working at a newspaper today is objective in anything they write about. Occasionally one might find someone of a independent persuasion at a newspaper doing sports or business reporting but all the other members of the staff (90%) are Liberal Democrats even if they aren’t carrying the card. It is the only thing that explains the silence on the Gosnell trial, the Benghazi whistle blowers and the mess that is Obamacare. These disaster and more are being ignored by the “Lame Scream Press”.
I knew someone who was Conservative that worked at a newspaper. The abuse they got made it almost a pleasure after 20+ years to be laid off. These people are taught by liberal professors, they live in the same area’s, they go to the same events and they truly do not know anyone who has a different opinion then they do. When you point out that they are biased they become defensive and combative and then the ad hominem attacks start. It’s a waste of time, frankly. They couldn’t find objectivity if it kissed them on the nosey.
That’s all for now but I’ll be back soon with “Stuff you just can’t make up”.
