Maturity

Maturity by Dear Abby's mom

“Without wanting to get even” is probably too much for all but the holiest among us.  I try for “without seeking to get even” and also “praying for the graces needed to forgive offenders and offer up the pain.”

Big Win for Parents in Tennessee

Kudos to the Franklin County, Tenn., School Board for standing strong against outside gay activist bullying!

On Monday, April 11, the Board voted 7-1 to institute new school club regulations that directly address abuses which are unique to gay school clubs.

  • They are coordinated by national LGBT organizations.
  • They depend on secrecy and deception.
  • They give access to un-vetted outside activists.
  • They provide students with information, materials, and student activities that parents consider dangerous and offensive.

Establishing regulations rather than banning gay clubs makes it impossible for gay activists and the ACLU to sue the district.  Plus, experience has shown that gay school clubs don’t last long when they are required to be transparent and adult activists are barred.

Common-sense regulations that apply to all clubs have been upheld by the federal courts.  Schools can also legally restrict certain club materials, because the First Amendment simply does not protect lewd, obscene, or pornographic materials in the school context.

The regulations strategy was provided by Liberty Counsel, a tax-exempt legal organization that specializes in evangelical Christian litigation.

BE THANKFUL YOU DON’T LIVE WHERE I LIVE
Tax on mileage could prevent gas tax increase

A proposal that would use devices to track drivers and tax them by the mile could be the alternative to a 30-cent per gallon increase in the gas tax and 50 percent hike in registration fees, according to infrastructure experts who testified at a Senate committee on Wednesday.
“Long term, because of fuel efficiency and electric cars, as Sen. Cullerton has observed, we can’t just depend on the gas tax, as it’s been,” Reilly said. “We need to begin taxing at some point, as soon as we can, on vehicle miles traveled.”

[CtH ::steaming::  “We NEED”?!  Cuz Heaven Forbid We Tighten Our Belts!  People all over this country have had to do with less, move in with family, etc. to deal with the crappy Obameconomy.  But oh noes … GUMMINT can’t stop spending a dime.  Okay, rant over … and I see I spoke too soon.  Pete said the same thing below. LOL  The dangers of having editing power! Bwahaha.]

WE NEED MORE MONEY!!!!!! TAX EVERYTHING!!!!
An Illinois Senate committee Wednesday took testimony on Senate President John Cullerton’s plan to charge a 1.5 cent-per-mile tax on driving in an effort to combat declining revenue from gasoline taxes. Drivers would get a refund of gas taxes they pay at the pump.

JOHN FULLERTON, WHO RUNS THE SENATE, AND MICHAEL MAGIAN, WHO OWNS THE HOUSE REFUSE TO CUT ANYTHING. THAT’S WHY WE DON’T HAVE A BUDGET. ANYBODY WHO THINKS WE’D GET A TAX REFUND IS DREAMING.
Drivers could have a device that tracks the miles through geolocation technology, charging only for the miles driven on public highways and roads.
Finally, Illinoisans could opt out of installing any devices and pay a flat mileage tax of 1.5 cents per mile for 30,000 miles.
