Women's March vs. March for Life
The C word. The F word. The P word. The S word. The D word.
The FCC would surely fine me if I actually told you what was brandished on signs at Women’s Marches across the country this weekend, but you get the picture.
It was an alphabet soup of vulgarity.
The disgusting display at Women’s Marches across the country was appalling for so many reasons.
The worst was how many moms exposed their children to such hatred.
Kids have no idea what this march is about. And I don’t think their parents do either.
Just for a second, think about what you are you teaching your daughters.
What was the message at the Women’s March? Something between “We hate Trump and stay away from our genitalia” I think.
That’s not a productive mission statement.
You need to be for something, not against something.
If those who attended the Women’s March really cared about women’s rights, they would have attended the other rally that happened this weekend: The March for Life.
Their message was much more clear and noble. Let more women be born.
The March for Lifers are literally trying to save the lives of millions of women.
The Women’s Marchers are complaining about Donald Trump.
You tell me which message is more heroic.
The shutdown continues
I’m sure most of you are listening to this right now from inside the safety and security of your Government Shutdown bomb shelters. For those of you that did manage to venture out into the horror, I salute your bravery.
The shutdown is now entering its third day. The Senate has a procedural vote at noon today that could fund the government temporarily until February 8th, but I wouldn’t hold out much hope. Don’t crack the lid on those bomb shelters just yet. The rumor is the relationship between the White House and Chuck Schumer is at an all-time low. Trump met with Schumer on Friday. Trump wanted the wall, and Schumer wanted Amnesty. You can imagine how well that conversation went.
This entire thing is just so silly. The government will eventually get funded, but until that happens we’re going to be forced to watch grown men and women act like children, arguing for things they know they probably don’t have any chance of actually getting. Will the wall get funded?
Anything is possible, but I have my doubts. Will DACA become law? Let’s not forget that Obama had to write an executive order, specifically because he knew both parties wouldn’t be able to successfully vote on it.
One side WILL eventually blink, but - the question is - how long is this going to take? If this stretches through the week, we’re going to get dangerously close to this affecting our men and women in uniform. MIlitary families can’t miss a paycheck. We already pay them next to nothing for what they do. Now, the soldiers risking their lives in combat zones will also have to worry about paying their bills back home.
Both sides are to blame here. Both sides are using military families as a pawn to argue for the highly improbable. You’d think military families would be off limits in this power play between overgrown children, but they’re more than willing to play that card. One Democrat actually tried. Here’s Senator Claire McCaskill on the Senate floor, pleading for an amendment to keep paychecks going to the military:
You’d think Republicans would jump at this and take it. Here’s Mitch McConnell’s response:
The turtle has spoken. Both sides are to blame here, and neither one seems to really care about the military. End this stupidity. Get back to doing whatever it is you guys do. You know, having super cool lunches at the Capital Grille, or whatever. Your arrogance and stupidity has consequences.
Great Britain’s government health care system is falling apart.
That is not a conservative talking point. The New York Times reported on it this week, with the headline “Britain’s National Health Service in Crisis.”
The head of Britain’s N.H.S. warned that the system is overwhelmed. Last year he requested four billion pounds in additional funding. He only got 1.6 billion. Also last year, 10,000 nurses quit.
The crazy thing about this New York Times report is that all the things conservatives criticize about socialized medicine, all the reasons we say it’s a bad idea and unsustainable, are actually happening. And the New York Times actually wrote about it!
It’s the kind of worst-case scenario stuff that the Left makes fun of the Right for talking about. For example:
Hospital hallways jammed with beds of frail and elderly patients waiting to be admitted.
Outpatient appointments canceled because there aren’t enough doctors to meet demand.
Patients waiting over 12 hours in emergency rooms before receiving care.
Undergraduate medical students being asked to volunteer to help ease the crush of patients.
Two weeks ago, hospitals were ordered to postpone all nonurgent surgeries until the end of the month. Many British hospitals also declared “black alerts,” meaning they cannot meet patient demand. On Twitter, British doctors described their overcrowded hospitals as “third world conditions” forcing them to practice “battlefield medicine.”
The N.H.S. director warned that the patient waiting list will grow to five million people by 2021, the highest number ever.
If this stuff wasn’t in the New York Times, no one on the Left would believe it coming from me.
A British construction worker learned from the news about the latest round of thousands of postponed surgeries. He said, “If I receive a notification, it will be the third time my operation is postponed. This is a disgrace. We injure ourselves while working to pay our taxes, and the government just leaves us to suffer.”
Are you listening, America? Still interested in that Bernie Sanders government healthcare plan?
