Not The Federal Govt's Job!

I'm pro choice but even if it did pass federal Gov't shouldn't have a say either way.
States should decide the state's laws.

The so-called "personhood" initiative was rejected by more than 55 percent of voters, falling far short of the threshold needed for it to be enacted. If it had passed, it was virtually assured of drawing legal challenges because it conflicts with the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a legal right to abortion.Mississippi Defeats Life at Conception Ballot Initiative

It's what I've come to expect from these 'new and improved' Conservatives.
Smaller Government with regard to businesses, LARGER Government with regard to your personal life.

I'm pro-choice only within the first trimester. After that, there had better be a life threatening reason....upheld by at least 3 doctors.

A small measure of hope that not all conservatives believe Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs. Just 45% of them.

Liberals are far more anti-choice.
They want to dictate what kind of toilets we can buy, what kind of cars manufacturers are allowed to make, where we can bolus houses. They even control whether farms can live our die.
The very wealthy get richer under liberal push for higher taxes and more regulation. Warren Buffet makes a lot more money when taxes are high because he sells tax avoidance financial products. He owns a rail road and will be the only means of transporting oil from Canada to US refineries if he can get the pipe line killed.
Yes conservatives believe all innocent life deserves protection. Liberals seem to believe thwart only murderers lives deserve protection.
The worst things Bush did were those things he thought would generate goodwill with liberals.
Signing the tightening of CAFE, the light bulb ban, NCLB ( which sets up a total federal take over of public education).

Liberals are also opposed to employees right to say no to unions. This adminstration has give further in eliminating workers' rights than any previous. Eliminating secret ballot rights, eliminating the requirement that a majority of employees vote for a union, and pushing card check where groups of union thugs go to employees homes and dare then not to sign the card.

Do enough drugs and you can ride anything you want.

Just remember, if you suddenly believe you can fly, that's cool and all just give it a shot from the ground floor before you head up to the roof.

Just sayin.

For or against it's not the Federal govt's job!

This week, the United States Senate is expected to finally vote on overturning the most brazen of all of the Obama administration’s regulatory power grabs. Now, to be the most brazen is tough in light of the EPA’s regulatory onslaught and the NLRB’s effort to tell companies what states they can locate in. But the FCC takes the cake, because their astonishing net neutrality power grab is taking place despite nearly zero support from Congress, an emphatic federal court decision telling them they have no relevant jurisdiction, and a 2010 election in which all 95 candidates who campaigned on the issue lost. A perfect record of failure. But if the Senate fails to stop the FCC this week, they might get away with it.

On December 21, 2010, President Obama’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fittingly chose the darkest day of the year to ignore Congress, the courts, the American people, and common sense. They voted to unravel a decade of remarkably successful hands-off Internet policy and impose potentially devastating regulations on the previously free market Internet.

Network neutrality sounds nice. Originally it was the idea that all of the traffic – the zeroes and ones – that travel over the networks that comprise the Internet should be treated exactly the same way. But engineers cried foul, because the routers that make the Internet work are highly sophisticated, with millions of lines of code that necessarily prioritize different types of traffic. Streaming video can’t tolerate the delays of a few seconds that, say, and e-mail would not be affected by at all.

So network neutrality morphed into something even more dangerous – empowering FCC bureaucrats to play traffic cops, micro-managing networks and deciding which traffic can or can’t be prioritized. The result would be a precipitous decline in private investment, because the companies that spend billions of dollars building networks could no longer be certain how the FCC bureaucrats would allow those networks to be used.

A recent study from NYU found that hundreds of thousands of jobs would be lost. The tech sector – the brightest spot in our economy – would be burdened by federal regulations the way the rest of the economy has been.

The new leadership in the House of Representatives stepped up early to meet the challenge. Speaker Boehner has made overturning the net neutrality order a priority, as has Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden. On April 8, 2011 – the House used the Congressional Review Act to pass a resolution that would overturn the net neutrality order. It was a solid 240 to 179 vote.

Now, just days before the network neutrality order takes effect on November 20, the Senate is poised to vote on blocking it. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, (R-Texas) the lead sponsor of S.J.Res.6, the vehicle for stopping this power grab, and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have brilliantly used the procedural tools available to them to force a Senate floor vote that cannot be filibustered. All 47 Republicans are likely to vote yes, with Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine – who supports network neutrality – signing on as a co-sponsor because she objects to the FCC attempting an end-run around Congress.

The question now is whether just four Democrats will vote to stop this power grab, and force Obama to use the veto pen and take personal responsibility if he insists on regulating the Internet.

This is crunch time. If the FCC can get away with this, then federal bureaucrats can disregard the Congress and the courts and do almost anything they want. Our representative form of government is at stake. If you’re ever going to contact your senator about a vote, please do it now.

I haven't been here all that long. And in my brief tenure, I have agreed with about 1% of what you have written. However, this made me laugh out loud in front of several customers! And I agree wholly with it - even though I'm a Libertarian...!

Thanks, Karn!

^^That's funny too.^^

It's official.
Whether you're for or against isn't the issue. It isn't the Federal crooks job to meddle in States affairs.

California Medical-Marijuana Dispensaries Ordered to Shut Down by Federal Prosecutors.

California-based distributors of medical marijuana have been ordered to shut down operations by Saturday. The move is part of a federal crackdown after weeks of conflict between prosecutors and distributors.

In late September, federal prosecutors announced the launch of an aggressive campaign against distributors and users, stating that a large number of for-profit organizations were more concerned with making money than with helping ailing individuals.

Prosecutors set a 45-day deadline for those dispensaries that were ordered to shut down. Failure to do so, they indicated, would lead to prosecution.

However, attorneys acting on behalf of distributors retaliated by filing suit, stating that such steps were "unconstitutional." Some of them even filed this month for a temporary restraining order in all four federal districts in California. They maintained the government had reversed an earlier decision to not target legal dispensaries.

More not the federal govt's job.
The States should be handling their own. Lower level management works much better anyhow.

USDA issues new rules for school meals

School meals will have to offer fruits and vegetables to students every day under standards issued by the United States Department of Agriculture on Wednesday.

The meal programs, which feed about 32 million students in public and private schools, will have to reduce sodium, saturated fat and trans fats. Schools must also offer more whole grains as well as fat-free or low-fat milk varieties.

These standards go into effect July 1 and will be phased in over a three-year period, according to the USDA.

The new nutrition standards are largely based on recommendations by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, as part of efforts to curb childhood obesity. Recent numbers show that about 17% of children in the United States are obese.

Under the new rules, school meals will have calorie minimums and maximums per meal based on the child's age. For kindergarteners to fifth-graders, meals must contain 550 to 650 calories, and for 9th- to 12th-graders, meals must have 450 to 600 calories.

Children will not be forced to take the vegetables and fruits onto their plates; the standards require that the various food groups be offered.

Health groups reacted to the rules mostly favorably, although a controversy erupted in November after Congress decided that two tablespoons of tomato sauce was good enough to categorize a slice of pizza as a vegetable.

Kevin Concannon, the USDA under secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services, said he wasn't concerned with the tomato paste controversy at this point.

"I'm confident we have a core healthy set of proposed diets for children," he said. "We can, within that, accommodate those recommendations received from Congress."

Food and beverages sold in vending machines will also have to meet nutritional standards.

First lady Michelle Obama and USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack unveiled the standards Wednesday.

"When we send our kids to school, we expect that they won't be eating the kind of fatty, salty, sugary foods that we try to keep them from eating at home," Obama said in a news release. "We want the food they get at school to be the same kind of food we would serve at our own kitchen tables."

The USDA offered a weekly sample lunch menu with before and after comparisons.

Before the new rules, a standard elementary school lunch menu might consist of cheese pizza, canned pineapple, tater tots and chocolate milk. A healthier meal under the new standards would have whole-wheat cheese pizza, baked sweet potato fries, raw grape tomatoes, low-fat ranch dip, applesauce and low-fat milk.

Some parts of the major revamp of school lunches have been rejected by students. The Los Angeles Times reported in December that students trashed the untouched healthier meals and started a booming underground market for junk food. Cafeteria workers in Chicago Public Schools reported that kids were not eating the healthy meals, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"If it's not delicious, kids aren't going to eat it," said Sam Kass, assistant White House chef. "I have lots of confidence in school chefs across the country who are working very hard to try to put delicious foods on the plates of kids."

He cited a Chefs Move to Schools Program, involving 35,000 school chefs who strive to innovate for better-tasting, healthy meals for kids.

The new standards are expected to cost $3.2 billion over the next five years, which was less than the initial estimated price, according to the USDA.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 gave the federal government more authority to set standards for food sold in vending machines and elsewhere on school grounds.

"The new school meal standards are one of the most important advances in nutrition in decades," said Margo Wootan, nutrition policy director at the Center for Science in the Public Interest. "They're much needed, given high childhood obesity rates and the poor state of our children's diets."

The School Nutrition Association, which represents 55,000 school nutrition professionals, said, "Through healthier choices and nutrition education, school meal programs have made tremendous strides to promote better food choices for America's students. These national nutrition standards will help school nutrition professionals build on their successes."
