When the news is so often bad, we could all use a laugh. Let's laugh about the news a little...
Last year, California’s governor signed into law Assembly Bill 1266, which directs that in our public schools gender is something students choose, rather than something they are born with. If a student with male genitalia self-identifies as a female, he/she is allowed to choose to use the girls’ bathrooms and showers. The upshot of this law is to respect the feelings of those who are conflicted with their own gender identity at the expense of the privacy rights of the majority.
Earlier last month, the South Dakota House voted to extend taxpayer funded government health care benefits to pregnant illegal aliens. Last year, the legislature tried to do the same thing,but it got tangled up in a conference committee. The Democrat sponsor of the bill, Rep. Bernie Hunhoff, and Gov. Dennis Daugaard agreed to fund it through Medicaid appropriations. Looks like the governor is ready to pull the same fast one again.
Good post at Hot Air regarding Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's lukewarm appearance at CPAC today. Ignoring for a moment that CPAC never should have invited this scheister in the first place, Hot Air has the whole story and the appropriate response to the headline "Mitch McConnell at CPAC: If you give me a Republican majority in the Senate, I won’t let you down".
7 Senate Democrats had the good sense to dodge a political attack ad nightmare when Debo Adegbile was defeated to be the next Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. What is remarkable is that only 7 Democrats voted no. Too bad for Harry Reid he can’t count to 50.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
