Starbucks On Abortion

For those who are aficionados of the trendy hot drink chain, Starbucks announced today that they are adding abortion travel benefits to the health benefits for all employees.

If any employee lives in a state that limits abortions or if they would have to travel more than 100 miles to get an abortion, Starbucks will pay the cost of travel to get the abortion.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Scary

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is a wild-eyed radical who enjoys saying crazy things, seemingly to get publicity and raise money. But as outlandish as she seems, you have to wonder if she really believes all of the crazy things she says. Apparently so.

On Thursday, at a court proceeding on an election law issue Greene was asked, under oath, if she advocated violence against people who disagree with her. Under oath, she replied “I don’t think so,” Greene replied. “I don’t know how to answer that.”

How do you not know how to answer that?! Well, it is quite simple, although seemingly too hard to believe. Greene simply does not believe in democracy and elections. It is that straightforward. She would not rule out violence against people who disagree with her and THAT is why she is so dangerous and is not qualified to hold any public office.

Doctor’s “Guess” At Birth

Brooke Roslindale School, a Boston area charter school, had a unique way to explain what OB/GYNs do at birth.

In an “identity Share” class, the assistant principal and a first grade teach Ray Skyer were teaching their 6 year olds and Skyer said “So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl.” and then went on to explain about “transgender” and “cisgender” and that he was a transgender.

It is probably a sign of my age to say “I remember when…” but when I was in first grade, I didn’t know whether any of my teachers were married or single or if they had any surgeries and no one felt the need to teach elementary school kids to question their sex. Yet, that is not the case today and there is a n agenda being pushed to teach kids about alternate lifestyles at the same time they are learning how to count and to know their colors.  And THAT is why Florida passed a law to re-focus early education on things that matter, rather than on a social agenda that is totally inappropriate for the age.

You Can’t Say That!

We live in a time when it is more accepted to say things that previously were considered vulgar, rude or inappropriate but it is less acceptable to express certain political views. This is increasingly the case with the “Woke” / politically correct agenda that far too often advocates banning views that they disagree with because…well, because they disagree with them. The most recent example is where the world of politics and sports intersects.

Is California Becoming A Second World State?

At first, that headline sounds a bit ridiculous. California is our most populous state and has an economy bigger than most countries. Yet, things are starting to change and not in a good way.

Trump On Jan. 6

Last week was the anniversary of the riots at the Capitol on January 6 of last year. It was, and still is, an emotional event, so allowing a few days to allow more restrained reflection… Yet, apparently, some do not want more restrained reflection.

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Jan. 6, saying in part, “That’s what you get when you have a rigged election.”

The former President does not have a problem with events of Jan. 6. The only thing that mattered to him is that he would no longer be President.

And THAT is exactly why character matters in our choice of a President.

Jan. 6: One Year Later

One year ago, rioters stormed our nation’s Capital trying to stop the proceedings of Congress, which was in session at the time.  It was the first time since the War of 1812 that violence had been used to storm the seat of our government.

A New Fascism?

A group of Univ. of Pennsylvania female swimmers were so upset by transgender swimmer Lia Thomas’ obvious advantages debated boycotting the team’s final meet on Jan. 8 in protest — but decided not to for fear of persecution and that they would be banned from further competition.

Sports And Reindeer Games

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has proposed a bill that would prohibit transgender individuals who have gone through puberty to participate in girl’s high school and college sports in the state.

In a related note, there are unconfirmed reports that Rudolph has changed his name to Ramona and is prancing his way through the female Reindeer Games and setting new records in several events.
