Latest Event Updates
All of the buzz about the no-fly list, yet it’s still unclear how someone gets on and off that list. Seems about as reasonable as using Santa’s.
Hillary and her minions must be quietly praising Trump for storming into the picture and turning the Republican establishment on itself. As long as he continues to stay in this race, and it certainly looks like he has staying power, the more the focus leaves her and bores in on the GOP divide.
At the end of a Presidential election, voters often consider it a choice of the lesser of two evils. That’s likely due to the continued negative campaigning to the point where each of the candidates have been torn down in the eyes of the voters. The GOP candidates are doing just that for the primary! By the time they get to the general election the victor will be scared, beaten, burned, and basted leaving Hillary to sweep in unscathed. Please quit giving her a reason to cackle.
The GMO-conscious Chipotle restaurants have been recently linked to an outbreak of e coli bacteria infections in as many as 52 people in 9 states across the country as of Friday, 12/4/15. Perhaps the restaurant chain should spend more time working on pathogen avoidance which we know are deadly, instead of GMO’s which have shown no proven harmful effects. Even with the admitted lack of effects, the FDA already regulates food derived through biotechnology such as GMO’s. Personally, we’d rather have e coli-free burritos. You can keep your GMO hysteria.
This President has a unique track record. He says ISIS isn’t a threat, then on that very day they attack Paris. Next he mocks Republicans by saying they’re afraid of women and orphans, then a deadly terrorist attack in California involving a woman.
We really shouldn’t think of orphans as a problem, but now we’re not so sure.
In response to the deaths San Bernardino, there was a noticeable difference in how those running for the office of President responded through Twitter.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the shooting victims and their families in San Bernardino.” Ben Carson
California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated?” Donald Trump
“Praying for the victims, their families & the San Bernardino first responders in the wake of this tragic shooting”. Jeb Bush
“My thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the shooting in San Bernardino, especially the first responders.” John Kasich
“Horrifying news out of #San Bernadino. Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up to the @NRA and enact meaningful gun safety laws.” Martin O’Malley
“I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now.” Hillary Clinton
“Mass shootings are becoming an almost-everyday occurre3nce in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop.” Bernie Sanders
So in summary, if you’re a Republican candidate you offer condolences, concerns for those suffering and encouragement to law enforcement. If your a Democrat candidate you’re looking for what’s in it for yourself as a vote getting tool.
If the Democrats want to do something about gun violence there are plenty of places to start but empty rhetoric only says “look at me, I’m pounding my fist to show I care.” Since their bold statements imply that they know exactly the reason behind this tragedy then we’re all anxious to hear what brilliant piece of legislation would have prevented this horrible act in California, a state that already has some of the toughest gun regulations in the country. But maybe like climate change, talking about it is enough to stem the tide of all evils.
Here’s a sobering thought. Take one-sixth of the population and simply discard them. Horrifying, isn’t it? We’re doing that to those who have the potential to be part of the next generation. Here are some scary facts:
• For every 1000 live births in the United States, 210 abortions occur.
• One million souls each year perish due to abortion as a way to end an unwanted pregnancy.
• Half of all pregnancies in this country are unwanted.
Obama was certainly not talking about the ghastly rate of abortions when he said “Enough is Enough.” We only wish he was a fraction as concerned over the loss of life as shown by these statistics as he was over the abortion clinic shooting and subsequent tragic loss of life. Certainly we don’t condone violence as a way of protesting abortion. The monster who shot up the clinic must pay for his hideous crimes. We do, however, want to ensure that the cost, gravity and frequency of abortions are more thoroughly understood. Then maybe others will also think, “enough is enough.”
It’s amazing to us that some can blame the shooting at the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic on heat Republican candidates have put on the organization. Well for goodness sake, let’s not talk about the horrific acts that go on in those places and worse yet the cavalier attitude the personnel have when it comes to “harvesting” body parts. While we’re at it, we should also stop any further discussions of the WWII concentration camps. We wouldn’t want anyone to feel bad.
