What will Transgenders in the Military Cost America?

There are many ways to take down this powerful country:

  • Pack the Supreme Court with ideologues who ignore the Constitution
  • Dumb down public education
  • Increase the size and scope of government
  • Put more people on the public dole
  • Put the government in charge of healthcare
  • Over regulate and over tax businesses and corporations driving them offshore or out of business
  • Demonize the productive members of society
  • Refuse an international leadership role
  • Go back on your word to foreign leaders
  • Strengthen the country out to destroy us
  • Weaken the military

Most of these things did not begin with Barack Obama, but there is little doubt that he has picked up the pace.  However, two events making the headlines this week should be enough to shake us awake from our political slumber: His bargain with Iran, which has empowered our sworn enemy and accelerated the arms race, and his decision on transgenders and the military.

Why Women Are Easy Prey for Liberal Democrats

With President Obama as welcome on the campaign trail as brownies at a meeting of Weight Watchers, and his policies as popular as Bach at a bowling alley, Democrats can be forgiven for rolling out the old “war on women” thing.  After all, it’s their ace in the hole, a proven winner when it comes to stirring up the electorate and getting out the vote.

“Those mean old Republicans want to take away your birth control, keep your wages below that of your male counterparts,” and did I hear, “deny your right to vote”?  Surely that must be in there somewhere.

Can’t blame them because they have been sewing these bad seeds for so long, it’s little wonder they are hoping that some still will bear fruit.

You really can’t blame women for falling for this gambit.  It’s not that women are dumb or that few take the time to research these charges that are thrown about like so much confetti before every election.  It’s just that most women are simply doing their best to survive in what is fast becoming a socialist, feminist utopia.

Obamacare’s Contraceptive Mandate (The dirty little Secret)

Democratic operatives and radical feminist groups have been hyperventilating since Monday’s  Supreme Court decision which allows Hobby Lobby to exclude some contraceptives from its insurance coverage.   It was much ado about nothing.  Burwell v. Hobby Lobby was a  small victory for common sense, but it was a narrowly written opinion that will have no effect on women’s health and little effect on Obamacare’s burdensome regulations.

Hobby Lobby already provides health care coverage to its employees, which includes 16 different types of contraceptives.  The Green family that owns Hobby Lobby only objected to the four birth control methods that are abortifacients:  morning after pills and IUD’s.  In addition to providing generous health care and dental coverage, the company offers a retirement savings plan, Sunday’s off and its base pay is almost twice the minimum wage.

That said, if a Hobby Lobby employee wants the morning after pill she can go to the local pharmacy and pay for it and still come out ahead of most women who are employed by similar retailers.  That why there will be no mass exodus of Hobby Lobby’s female employees.   Continue reading “Obamacare’s Contraceptive Mandate (The dirty little Secret)”

Republicans more Fun than Democrats

In a recent New York magazine interview, Saturday Night Live boss Lorne Michaels revealed an interesting fact that gives us some insight as to why late night TV hosts are more likely to demean Republicans than Democrats.  “Republicans are easier for us than Democrats,” said Michaels.  “Democrats tend to take it personally; Republicans think it’s funny.”

In other words, Democrats have no sense of humor.  They take themselves much too seriously while Republicans can laugh at themselves. Continue reading “Republicans more Fun than Democrats”

What Women Want

In the 2000 comedy, “What Women Want,” Helen Hunt sent Mel Gibson home with a basket of feminine products to try in an effort to gain insight on how to design a successful ad campaign.

Makes sense:  The hand that rocks the cradle still rules the world.

The fairer sex does not hold a majority in Congress.  We do not hold the majority of seats in the boardrooms of this country but, make no mistake, we control finance.  It is well understood that women balance most of the checkbooks and buy most of the products sold in this country.  We also influence elections.

That’s why political operatives stay up late into the night trying to figure us out.   Unfortunately, most are sidetracked by a known-it-all group of angry feminists who claim to speak for the rest of us. Continue reading “What Women Want”

Washington Redskins: What’s in a Name?

The language police have been out in force in recent months.  The target du jour is the NFL team that resides in the nation’s capitol.  They are trying to force the owner of that illustrious franchise to ditch the team’s 80-year-old mascot.

Some, a precious few as it turns out, believe the word “Redskins” to be a slur.

Barack Obama, who never misses an opportunity to right every perceived racial wrong, didn’t help by wading into the matter recently and ginning up the controversy.

Let’s face it.  Some people with way too much time on their hands can get offended by a ham sandwich!   The fact that the overwhelming majority of Native Americas aren’t offended by the term, and are proud that this team chose to highlight the positive attributes of their heritage, ought to count for something.

Such was the case when a few uptight feminists, with their panties in a twist, began insisting we rid our speech of words like “Miss, Mrs., Mistress, Madam,” “lady” and “ma’ am” as in “Yes ma’ am.”   What generally is considered to be polite forms of address is offensive to the NOW crowd.  They want to be referred to as “women” or individually as a “woman” and will accept no substitutes.

Boy Scouts follow Girl Scouts Downhill (Last of a Three-Part Series)

There is a reason that the Boy Scouts of America have not partnered with the Girl Scouts USA.  The two organizations would appear to be natural affiliates but at their core, they are now miles apart.  That may be about to change.   

The issue that has divided them are the principles on which the two organizations were founded:  A belief in God and a pledge to abide by the moral truths that are revealed in His Word.  

  •  In the 70’s, the Girl Scouts put feminist icon Betty Friedan on its national governing board. It wasn’t long before the Girl Scouts began purging its materials of all positive references to homemakers.
  •  In 1980, the organizations changed its policy on homosexuality and welcomed lesbians as scouts and troop leaders.
  • In 1993, the Girl Scouts took aim at the Creator himself, making God an option by inserting an asterisk by the word “God” in the Promise.  

Due to public outrage and loss of enrollment, that asterisk was removed from the latest Girl Scout Handbook.  Don’t be fooled.  Instead, girls are simply being instructed that when reciting the Promise they are “free to substitute their own wording for God’”  http://www.girlscoutshs.org/sensitiveissuesfaqs.  In other words, a girl is free to pledge to do her duty to herself as any good atheist would.   Continue reading “Boy Scouts follow Girl Scouts Downhill (Last of a Three-Part Series)”
