ABORTION: Don’t expect compassion from people who murder innocent babies for a living — On Nov 9, 2018, an abortion clinic put a bleeding patient out on to the street, because … well, it was closing time and they’d already gotten their money. They couldn’t even be bothered to call 911 for her. Fortunately, she was able to do it for herself. An ambulance came and took her to a hospital for treatment.
SCOTUS: Not as big a deal as some are making out — Legal beagles say the high court’s decision to not hear the Planned Parenthood funding case may not be the harbinger about future abortion cases that some are making it out to be. The issue wasn’t abortion, but whether Medicaid recipients had the right to choose providers for annual health screens, contraceptive coverage and cancer screening. Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life, sees hope for the future, noting that Louisiana 2016 Act 304 is still in place. The act prevents tax dollars from going to any “entity or organization that performs abortions, or that contracts with an entity or organization that performs abortions, in this state.”

BABY IT’S NOT COLD OUTSIDE: Billionaire Bloomberg helped finance this INANE project. And he’s photographed with it. In London. Doesn’t he live in NYC? Doesn’t it take a pot load of fossil fuel to cross the Atlantic? Oh wait, he’s a LIBERAL who “fights climate change”, so it’s okay, right? As of June 2018, his net worth was estimated at $51.7 billion, making him the 8th-richest person in the United States and the 11th richest person in the world. So I’m guessing he has a private jet that is undoubtedly wind powered. Or maybe it’s hydro-powered with melting ice .
CALIFORNIA DREAMING: More like California Exodus –– As the number of illegals and homeless in California rise, the businesses that provide the jobs and tax monies to provide them with services are fleeing the state.
