The Senior Senator from my State Advocates Infanticide.

A big story today covers the proposal in the Senate by Senator Ben Sasse proposed a bill offering protection for a live baby who survives a botched abortion (just thinking about that in itself is horrible-that a last-second “abortion” could “fail” and leave the baby alive).  Senator Sasse proposed to pass this bill by acclamation-who could NOT support a bill like this?

Well, I’ll just tell you who.  That would be the Senior Senator from Washington State, otherwise known as the “Mom in Tennis Shoes”, Sleazebag ,oops, Senator Patty Murray.  She is a sorry excuse for a senator, and is mocked as the most stupid person in Congress. So, now she adds “advocate of infanticide” to her many recommendations.

This is the logical conclusion to the Feminazi sacramentalizing of Abortion above all.

Local KIRO Radio personality Dori Monson talked about this on his show today.  Like him, I am ashamed to have that piece of horse turd “representing” me in the other Washington.  May she rot in hell.

Is This New York Abortion Law Evil?

Or, as Ben Shapiro puts it,

New York Governor Cuomo wants to ban the Death Penalty…Except for Unborn Children; go ahead and kill those.

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the most comprehensive abortion law in the United States.  This new law, passed by the now-100%-Democrat controlled Legislature, allows termination of a pregnancy up to the moment of birth.  Yes, that is correct, New York now allows a full-term BABY to be murdered if the mother and her doctor deem her health in danger.  Various “news” outlets describe this as “updating” New York abortion laws, and “adding strong legal protections” for “abortion rights”.

The above-mentioned Governor of New York is nominally a Catholic.  As I remember it, the Catholic Church forbids contraception, and defines abortion as murder.  And the Catholic Bishops have reacted to this new law that is celebrated by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Bishops call for Cuomo to be excommunicated.

Look at that tag line on the podium.  No Time to Wait.  And the title of the new law is the “Reproductive Health Act”.  However, one thing the act ignores is the fact that the pregnant woman is not the only individual affected by abortion.  What about the child?  Well, this new law in New York deems that child disposable.    The statistics show that, in New York, more black babies are aborted than are born.  Does this indicate discrimination against minorities?  Nope, the Progressives in New York are perfectly fine with it, since Abortion is their Holy Sacrament.

And what about the Abortion Doctors?  Doesn’t the Hippocratic Oath say “First Do No Harm”?  I guess that in New York, the Culture of Death rules even the medical profession.    This list was taken off a Web Site called “safest abortion”, by a medical group, NY OB-GYN Associates.

  • Teenagers do not need their parent’s permission to have an abortion.
  • There are no waiting periods
  • No need for state approval
  • Patients can perform their abortion in their doctor’s office.
  • New York State Medicaid covers abortion for women with a low income.

Although, there are some pro-life doctors who have spoken out against this destructive (literally!) new law.  But it appears that they are in the minority.

It is a crying shame, what Feminism hath wrought in the United States, and around the world.  Human beings are reduced to the status of afterthoughts, permitted to be done away with, even if they can sustain life if allowed to be born.  I never had children myself, but this new law makes me very sad.  I weep for the babies who will not be allowed to live, and contribute to the tapestry that is Humanity.

 

A Twitter Conversation I’d Like to See

Nancy Pelosi to President Donald Trump:

pelosi-sotu

Postpone that State of The Union address, due to YOUR government shutdown.

 

President Donald Trump to Nancy Pelosi:

iu

Mrs. Speaker Pelosi, GO POUND SAND.

Since I’m not on Twitter, even if this conversation happens, I’ll miss it (well, not really).

Go President Trump!  Do Not give in to the Forces of Progressivism that are attempting to ruin your Presidency!

Do you have children or grandchildren? You might be interested in this. And not in a good way.

Hubby and I have a new great-niece, who just turned one year old.  For her birthday, I went to the book store to find a nice picture book (we will not be giving her any toys, just books for birthdays and Chanukah). What I found was not very nice, in my opinion.  It seemed to me that most, if not all, recently-written kids’ books are written with some kind of political theme in mind.  We have known for many years that the “educational” establishment has been indoctrinating our young people with the standard Progressive world view, including diversity, inclusion, homosexuality, environmentalism, feminism, and “gender-fluidity”, among many other disgusting themes.  Don’t we remember the furor surrounding the book Heather has Two Mommies, that was featured in some elementary schools a while ago?

I found it interesting that, for the last weekend in December, the Seattle Times and Wall Street Journal both did features on new “literature” for today’s “woke” kids.  The title of the Seattle Times story was “12 groundbreaking books for young readers of all genders“. (emphasis mine).  The point of view is right there in the title, you don’t even have to read any further.  Some of the titles are My First Book of Feminism (for Boys); From the Stars in the Sky to the Fish in the Sea (written by a “trans-gender woman”); Mae Among the Stars, written about a black woman who went into space, “to push back against sexism and racism”; Stories for Boys who Dare to be Different: True Tales of Amazing Boys who Changed the World Without Killing Dragons, written to push back against “toxic masculinity”; and “The Best Man”, urging boys NOT to become “masculine”.  Hey, parents, this is what your kids are being urged to read!  Your boys are being taught that to be a boy, who does boy stuff, is a bad thing! Your girls are being taught that if they do not end up as scientists or astronauts, it’s because of Sexism.

In the Wall Street Journal, their children’s book editor Meghan Cox Gurdon says, in her piece entitled “You’re Never Too Young to Take a Stand”:

“When posterity looks back at the children’s books of 2018, it will notice a strong political current that, as in a river, progresses in one direction.  Posterity will observe, for instance, that the presidential election of two years before continued to have a downstream effect in the form of numerous picture books that celebrate certain ways of seeing the world and offer a rebuke to others.”

She cites picture books that have themes of acceptance of immigrants, tearing down all barriers, and acceptance of same-sex marriage.  Yes, little kids are learning about homosexuality and same-sex marriage!  She mentions a young-adult book about a dystopia that includes bad US government interning Muslim citizens, and the good American teen who helps a fugitive escape from a prejudiced land to Canada.  And she mentions  all the books of 2018 that featured the female Supreme Court Justices, and no mention of the males.  Girls Good; Boys Bad is the refrain.  And her final mention is a book entitled Woke Baby.

So, instead of looking for new books for my little niece, I will be buying her the well-loved books of the past, including Babar the Elephant, and Madeleine.  Parents, be very careful out there when choosing literature for your kids.  Read everything first, and make sure that what they are reading isn’t as subversive as all these books seem to be.

Progressives. This.Is.Who.They.Are.

Thanks to James Freeman of the Wall Street Journal (in his Best of the Web newsletter yesterday) for excerpting this “Pravda on the Hudson”, AKA New York Times, Op-Ed, by someone called Todd May.  The title of the column is “Would Human Extinction be a Tragedy?”  Emphasis mine.

One might ask here whether…it would…be a good thing for those of us who are currently here to end our lives in order to prevent further animal suffering.  Although I do not have a final answer to this question, we should recognize that the case of future humans is very different from the case of currently existing humans.  To demand of currently existing humans that they should end their lives would introduce significant suffering among those who have much to lose by dying.  In contrast, preventing future humans from existing does not introduce such suffering, since those human beings will not exist and therefore not have lives to sacrifice.  The two situations, then, are not analogous.

My response to this is something like “you go first”.  This is so horrific in so many ways, it almost hurts to think about it.  As if each living person’s “existence” affects no one but himself, and future humans would be of use to only themselves (and a threat to the survival of the planet).    Well, today’s progressives already support the prevention of new humans (birth control), and their sacraments are the obliteration of existing humans (abortion and assisted suicide).  I guess this is just taking that kind of thinking to its logical conclusion.  Progressives really hate humanity, and believe that animals deserve to thrive more than people do.  Disgusting, just throughly disgusting.

Annals of “Liberals Destroy Everything They Touch”, Seattle Edition

Annals of “Liberals Destroy Everything They Touch”, Seattle Edition

These are just a few of the stories at the top of the KOMO News site this morning.  Every single story shows how the radicals running local government have destroyed everything they touch.

The City of Seattle encourages (does not punish) public drug use, especially in and around the burgeoning homeless encampments.

Seattle police Officer Pricked by Used Needle in Seattle Park

Also related to the drug scene around Seattle, evidence that there is no plan to decrease the use of illegal drugs in the city.

Public Libraries and YMCAs to get Narcan(r) to Prevent Opioid Overdoses

And Seattle/King County does have enabling legislation to allow “Safe Injection Sites”, where illegal-drug addicts can “shoot up”, supervised by nurses.  They just can’t seem to find the ideal site, so none has opened up yet.  I have read that they are considering “mobile” drug dens, so no permanent site will be necessary.  I can just see the ads now:  “Hey, Burien Drug Addicts!  Meet your Mobile Drug Den at Fourth and Highway 900, Monday at 3:00PM”.

North Seattle Shooting Marks Five-Year High in Homicides in North Precinct, City Says.

And Seattle has passed the most restrictive gun-storage laws in recent memory, essentially requiring legal gun owners to lock up their firearms where they cannot be obtained by anyone easily (especially the homeowner with the burglar or rapist at the door).  Yeah, buy that gun for self-defense, and we will mandate that it be unavailable to you when you need it most.

Sound Transit: Replacing Broken Escalators at UW Station to Cost More than $20 Million

Everyone in the Seattle-Everett-Tacoma area is paying through the nose (car-tab tax, property tax, sales tax) for this useless Choo-Choo Train that 1% of the population will ride.  Everyone has heard of the huge (predicted) cost-overruns associated with this boondoggle, and this is one of the most egregious.  It seems that they need very long escalators to carry riders from the street down to the underground train station by the University of Washington.  The radicals who run (?) un-Sound Transit ordered “commercial-grade” escalators instead of “transit-grade” escalators, probably to save costs.  Yeah, big savings!  Not only are transit riders inconvenienced by having to walk up and down hundreds of stairs to get to and from the train, but NO costs were saved, and more costs will now have to be incurred! On MY dime!

Police: Car Thefts up From a Year Ago in Seattle

Seattle police have essentially stopped responding to most property crimes in the city.  Is it any wonder that we try our best to stay the hell out of Seattle?  The city is almost literally going to hell in a hand basket.  I Despise Seattle, and I feel sorry for those who live there.  However, they do get the government they elect, don’t they?  Maybe I shouldn’t feel too sorry for them after all.
