If these stories don't scare the crap out of you, nothing will.
Feds to fine schools for not following Michelle Obama's lunch rules. So, the First Nanny gets her husband to put rules in place to force schools to feed kids things they do not want to eat. Kids and school systems rebel at the idea, mainly because what the First Nanny thinks is healthy is also pretty damned unappetizing, not to mention much more expensive to serve, and now the First Hubby is using the power of government to start pursuing fines against school systems who won't follow the expensive and restrictive guidelines.
Schools are already hard-pressed to meet budgets for educational purposes. Adding extra rules that force schools to serve more expensive food that is just going to be wasted is simply ludicrous. Following up with additional fines borders on the criminally insane.
We can't kick those two out of the White House soon enough.
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal vetoes a so-called "religious liberty" bill. Christians apoplectic and persecuted.
Let's net this out, shall we?
Your right to practice your religion as you see fit stops when that religious belief discriminates against another human being.
And it is beyond despicable that so-called "conservative" elected officials would try to codify their religious beliefs by using the power of government to enforce them. Here's what one of the idiots who sponsored this bill had to say:
"The question we have to resolve is whether or not government is going to be used to punish people with a particular point of view,” Sen. Josh McKoon, R-Columbus, one of the champions of religious liberty bills in the General Assembly, said.
So, in Josh McKoon's alleged "mind", it's OK to punish gay people for being gay, but it's not OK to punish Christians for discriminating against gays. Got it.
Perhaps Sen. McKoon is familiar with another quote: "Judge not, lest ye be judged".
Sadly, this fool will likely get re-elected every year due to his constituents being just as dumb as he is.
Hi! I'm Dave Richard, your host. I hope you enjoy your visit. We'll be talking about current events, politics, the occasional sports (I'm a HUGE New England Patriots fan, so get over it), and some "Get off my lawn!" issues.
