I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For...

The new flavor of ice cream at What's The Scoop? in Portland, Oregon is called Rose City Revolution. For a limited time only, a full ten percent of the profits from those ordering the new flavor will go towards the world's leading provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood. And nothing says yummy like ripping babies' limbs off mixed with ice cream.

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has announced that a local ice cream parlor has created an ice cream just for them. No it will not be called Blood and Scream!

I scream, you scream, we all scream about the insanity of killing children in the name of convenience. Unbelievable! Next, they'll be using aborted babies to generate electricity.

Captain Obvious

I remember the first time that I was called Captain Obvious. A friend had forgotten his homework in his car. Between classes, he had braved the torrential downpour to retrieve it. Laughing at his predicament, as he arrived back in the school, I commented, "You're soaked!" And we all know his derogatory reply..."Thank you, Captain Obvious!"

It would be difficult to use this same derogatory response to describe Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid's comments to the media regarding the limitation of Obamacare by the Supreme Court in the Hobby Lobby Case.

“The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determine by virtue of five white men,”
Um, Captain Clueless, Clarence Thomas isn't white. And remember, over half of the lives ended in abortion are young women.

Celebrate Excellence

I'm all for the recognition of a job well-done when someone achieves true excellence. I recently witnessed a good friend, who was a senior at CHS, delivered his senior thesis with monumental splendor. It was an impressive display of preparation, research, and delivery. Way to go, Preston! You performed with excellence!

There are times, however, that I think the celebration of excellence is deplorable.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains gave its Aurua abortion clinic an award for increasing the number of babies killed in abortions.
When the killing of children is celebrated as honorable or goal-achieving, then something is desperately wrong with our culture. Politics cannot fix the problem. Our country needs revival in the worst way.

Stop Global Whining

Sometimes, I think this post title could fit for most of the large political events in the country. Today's edition of "Stop Global Whining" regards the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the right of Hobby Lobby to run their business with a little more freedom than they would have had if they would have had to comply with the shackles of ObamaCare.

It's not a complete victory, but now Hobby Lobby does not have to pay for their female employees to murder their children. The progressives in the country are all bent out of shape because they continue to misunderstand the role of the Constitution and the government in general. Starting at the source, Justice Ginsberg said in her dissenting option:
[The Hobby Lobby decision will] deny legions of women who do not hold their employers’ beliefs access to contraceptive coverage.

Justice Ginsberg seems not to understand the situation. Hobby Lobby does not intend to stop women from killing their children, they just do not intend to PAY for it. Matt Walsh, as only he can, elaborates:
These claims are unabashedly dishonest because they fail to take into account two important points: A) Hobby Lobby covers birth control. I say again: Hobby Lobby covers birth control. B) Whether any employer covers birth control or not, none are trying to stop women from accessing it. The issue here is whether a private company should be forced to pay for birth control, not whether it should be allowed to sneak into your house at night and check to make sure you don’t have a bottle of Yaz in your medicine cabinet. 

If your boss is in your bedroom, call the police. Or stop inviting him in. When you ask him to pay for what you do in the bedroom, you are inviting him in. Want him out? Good. Then stop making your birth control into a national headline. Deal with it yourself, privately. 

Not to be outdone, Bob Beckel appeared on Fox News stammering excitedly that now Orthodox Jewish business owners have the power to ‘tell their employees they can’t use electricity on Saturdays.’...Indeed, it takes the special lunacy of a man like Beckel to confuse ‘I’m not going to pay for this’ with ‘you cannot have this, even if you pay for it yourself.’
While this ruling is a tiny step in the right direction, people need to understand that the entire idea of government "giving" or "providing" rights to corporations to be exempt from government mandates is insanely backwards. The government does not grant rights to the people. The Constitution exists to protect the people's rights against the tyranny of the government.
