Baby Charlie Gard…what it was really about

Hopefully, you have been following the saga of baby Charlie Gard, taken hostage by the British courts and the British National Health Care System (NHL). We can now say for sure that we have met those infamous Death Panels that show up when the government is paying the medical bills. The government then owns you lock, stock, and barrel. If you think that’s overstating it, you haven’t been following little Charlie’s story. What a cute baby he was too. Our congress had the opportunity to stop our march to this end result this week, but they said, “no” this week.

Because I cannot present the argument any better than Daren Jonescu, I implore you to read his/her posts at the following links. You don’t have to be uninformed, unless you choose to be. Be responsible! The country needs you!

Republicans caving? #draintheswamp

I have been reading a report this morning about a quiet, recently taped Republican meeting concerning how to repeal and replace ObamaDoesn’tCare.

I have one thing to say to the mealy-mouth, double-minded, squishy Rinos…CHARGE!..You didn’t have any problem passing, what, some 60 bills repealing it the last 8 years so that you could LOOK LIKE you were doing something the people demanded, all while knowing it would never pass the President’s desk.

Now you finally caught the bone…your REAL CHANCE to repeal it according to the people’s wishes and have the executive branch agree with it….and YOU are hesitating, and you are thinking about your next election,etc. etc. You NAUSEATE the American people. Do you honestly think if you DON’T do this, that YOU will survive your next election??? Are you kidding? You are delusional if you do. We will not forget. Can’t you tell…from the 2008 election on, the people have been slowly turning this thing, election after election….Pay ATTENTION! The Dems have lost some 1000 plus seats of government across the nation since 2008. Do you honestly think you can escape the dungheap of history if you don’t move forward when the opportunity is given you?

Haven’t you been paying attention? Trump won because he has single-handedly taken on  the political system and that includes your party too. Or are you secretly trying to sabotage his first term and his promises to the American people? The people know that some of you are, because you are against his presidency. No matter what he does, and no matter what you do, you will be labeled heartless, racist homophobes. Trump has figured this out, but some of you are still courting the left trying to be “friends.” One doesn’t make friends with a snake without getting badly bitten.

I and the American people who put Trump in office challenge you to be REAL MEN. Do what is right. Be true to yourselves, unless you are totally reprobate. In that case, resign, recognizing you don’t care about the country at all, and that disqualifies you for office, meaning you will not keep that oath you took, and thereby gain some honor for yourselves.

Anyone Know What Planet We are Living on?

As if our world couldn’t get any more bizarre, today I read that there are gray-haired adult illegal aliens attending public schools in Lynn, MA. This is reported by the town’s mayor at a press conference. That’s fairly bizarre, but it gets more bizarre: the Department of Justice (it must be a misnomer) has ruled that the school cannot inquire what age the “students” are. Read it here. I smell a rat.

FUNNY RAT002

And we are lunch. When did the federal government get the right to take over local schools in this manner? Not only did the Feds secretly ship illegals all over the US and force them on communities…now they are doing this. What country do we live in? Not in the United States of America…not any more. Our Federal government has declared war on its own citizens.

FOIA – Protection for All

I work for a newspaper. A small town newspaper, but a newspaper nonetheless. This week we got a letter from a “Freedom of Information Officer” from one of the small towns in the area. It seems we are “making too many mistakes in reporting the minutes of their meetings.” But no one has ever, not once, called in to tell us that; not one complaint has ever come. We would gladly print a retraction if we are wrong about something. This baffles me. They want the right to preview our reports from now on before we print.

This is a government board. How much would they want retracted from the original report? And who the heck is a “Freedom of Information Officer?” The Freedom of Information Act is there to guarantee that citizens are allowed to see and hear what their government is doing. In another town, they threatened to do all their meetings in executive session, just because we brought a recorder. The recorder is to guarantee we get it right, not to do a “gotcha.”

Imagine if the Federal Government or the State government asked for the right to preview everything that gets printed about them. It would be gridlock!

Like most of what we see in politics these days, someone throws out a vague accusation against another, but never gives the details, and when asked to give one, they usually can’t think of anything. I suspect that may be what this is. Being a newspaper employee, I intend to have them put all those details, list every single error they think we have made, in writing, because if we did make a mistake, we need to correct it, right? This also validates our decision to record the meetings. It’s benefits both of us, media and government. It protects both of us.
