California Becomes First State to Allow Gender-Neutral Birth Certificates

California is now the first state in the country to grant gender-neutral birth certificates for people who feel like they are neither men nor women.

Perhaps these certificates should be genus neutral, don’t even bother with listing species.

The Sacramento Bee reports on Sunday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the ”Gender Recognition Act” that allows for gender-neutral options on driver’s licenses and also on birth certificates. Oregon and Washington D.C. previously enacted gender-neutral driver license options, but California is the first state to allow the gender-neutral option on birth certificates.

The new birth certificates and licenses allow people who feel like they are neither men nor women—people who think they are “non-binary” or “genderqueer” or any other nonconforming gender—to choose “non-binary” as an option on their official documentation.

The Los Angeles Times reports the new driver’s licenses start to be issued in 2019.

Gift ideas for Christmas

Since President Trump declared it is fine to say “Merry Christmas” again we here at Loon Watch thought it is time to get a jump of some gift ideas for those Snowflakes on your special list.

Everyone likes a pet and one that you don’t have to get up at zero dark thirty on a chilly rainy morning and take out to do their business is a great idea. Cats shed and the males spray. Why put up with that. Birds are noisy and have to be kept warm. Phooey! Now fish require none of the aforementioned bothers. They stay put in their tank don’t need to be fed at certain times and can be fun to watch.

With some careful though, they can be of historical value as well as a decorative asset to your domicile.

Or have it delivered to her or his dorm room so that all their SJW buds can enjoy the soothing companionship of the pets.

Consider the:

These delicates can’t be allowed to pick out a costume for Halloween lest they run afoul of some PC regulation concerning ‘Cultural Appropriation’. Why don’t they all co nekkid with their naughty bits flopping about in the chilly night time air. But then someone will accuse them of appropriating human culture. That would be true of course.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear

Throughout October, universities across the nation are warning their students against Halloween costumes some consider offensive.

Gone are the days when college students could dress up without fear of being reported to a bias response team. In recent years, more and more campus leaders have made it their mission to warn students what not to wear.

Fliers, memos, workshops and more impart the admonitions.

“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”

“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students. [snip]

At a “Conversation Circle” at Princeton University this Sunday, students will “engage in a dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

With this last we believe we’re into the area of felonious costumes.

If these fragile individuals need help with ideas, why not go forth gowned as faculty members, Pelosi, Shumer or Hollywood celebs in sumptuary raiment. A campus full of Harvey costumes should bring massive chuckles.

Mrs. Bill Clinton Says Harvey Weinstein-Type Behavior ‘Can’t be Tolerated Anywhere’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was first lady to President Bill Clinton, told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an interview broadcast yesterday that the sort of behavior the movie magnate Harvey Weinstein engaged in “can’t be tolerated anywhere.” [snip]

Here is the transcript of an excerpt of Zakaria’s interview with Clinton:

Fareed Zakaria: “What was your reaction when you heard the news about Harvey Weinstein?”

Hillary Clinton: “I was just sick. I was shocked. I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way. And, you know, like so many people who have come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.”

Zakaria: “Would you have called him a friend?”

Clinton: “Yes, I probably would have and so with so many others. You know, people in Democratic politics for a couple of decades appreciated his help and support. And I think these stories coming to light now and people who never spoke out before, having the courage to speak out just clearly demonstrates that this behavior that he engaged in cannot be tolerated and cannot be overlooked. And I’m hoping that the—“

Zakaria: “Do you think it was tolerated because he was powerful?”

Clinton: “I don’t know.”

Zakaria: “A lot of people say people knew.”

Clinton: “Well, I certainly didn’t and I don’t know who did. But I can only speak for myself and I think speak for many others who knew him primarily through politics. But the courage of these women coming forward now is really important because it can’t just end with one person’s disgraceful behavior and the consequence that he is now facing. This has to be a wake-up call and shine a bright spotlight on anything like this behavior anywhere at any time.

“We’ve had a series of revelations about companies in Silicon Valley, you know, just sexual harassment and sexual assault being kind of accepted. That’s the cutting edge of our economy. That’s where a lot of young people have their first or most significant jobs.

“This can’t be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s entertainment or tech or anywhere.”

Zakaria: “Senator Blumenthal says that people should give back the money that he donated to them. He donated money to you directly and indirectly. Would you give the money back?”

Clinton: “Well, there’s no one to give it back to. What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying is they’re going to donate it to charity. And, of course, I do that. I give 10 percent of my income to charity every year. This will be part of that. There’s no doubt about it.”

Why not? There isn’t a thing in the Constitution stating that one needs a permit to own or carry a gun. But journalists believe that the Second Amendment needs all sorts of controls. Why not the First Amendment too.

Lawmaker proposing media permits to show how unfair gun permits are

Lawmaker proposing media permits to show how unfair gun permits are

 A lawmaker in Indiana is proposing that the media be required to apply for a ‘journalism license.’

Indiana State Rep. Jim Lucas (R) proposed that journalists should meet the same requirements as gun owners, who have concealed carry permits, and drafted a bill that would mandate a license to practice it.“If you’re OK licensing my Second Amendment right, what’s wrong with licensing your First Amendment right?” Lucas told the IndyStar.

His bill would require that journalists apply for their license with the state police. The application process would cost $75, and each reporter would be fingerprinted. The lawmaker’s bill would reject journalists, who have a felony or domestic battery conviction.

The Indiana lawmaker equates the need for the media permit with the obligation for gun holders to have concealed carry licenses. Lucas has been a staunch opponent to gun permits and fees, but says that the media contributes to the negative stereotypes associated with gun laws. He thinks if gun owners are required to have permits, then the media should be held to the same standard saying that journalists play a significant role in the negative stigma associated with firearms.

“If I was as irresponsible with my handgun as the media has been with their keyboard, I’d probably be in jail,” he said.

Rep. Lucas, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, has been vocally against the state’s permit laws. To Lucas, Americans have a constitutional right to carry that should not require a permit.

Cynically, the lawmaker wants journalists to abide by the same rules that gun holders do to emphasize the inappropriateness of permit requirements. [snip]

Army Sgt. Bergdahl pleading guilty to desertion, misbehavior

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told a military judge on Monday that he’s pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

“I understand that leaving was against the law,” said Bergdahl, whose decision to walk off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2009 prompted intense search and recovery missions, during which some of his comrades were seriously wounded.

“At the time, I had no intention of causing search and recovery operations,” Bergdahl said, but he added that now he does understand that his decision prompted efforts to find him.

Bergdahl, 31, is accused of endangering his comrades by abandoning his post without authorization. He told a general after his release from five years in enemy hands that he did it with the intention of reaching other commanders and drawing attention to what he saw as problems with his unit. [snip]

This indicates that they did not reach a deal to limit his punishment, and that he may be hoping for leniency from the judge, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance. The misbehavior charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, while the desertion charge is punishable by up to five years. [snip]

Just what we need in Congress. There are enough mental defectives sitting in chairs in DC now without another running for a space. Call he Men in Black!

Miami politician says aliens took her on a spaceship. Now she’s running for Congress.

Florida has a U.S. senator who once flew aboard the Space Shuttle.

A congressional candidate from Miami can go one better: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship too. But this one was crewed by aliens. As in extraterrestrials.

Three blond, big-bodied beings — two females, one male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says. (Sen. Bill Nelson served as payload officer aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986. All seven people aboard were from Earth. As far as is known.)

Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs during a 2009 television interview.

She described “going up” inside the spaceship — though whether it went into space or just hovered around town was left unclear.

“I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship — not like airplanes,” Rodriguez Aguilera said.

In two separate videos posted to YouTube years ago, one by local Spanish-language station America TeVe and another by a political critic with the user name DoralGirl26, Rodriguez Aguilera spoke on television in detail about her extraterrestrial experiences. She said the alien beings reminded her of the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, with arms outstretched.

Among the things she said she found out from the aliens:

  • There are 30,000 skulls — “different from humans” — in a cave in the Mediterranean island of Malta.
  • The world’s “energy center” is in Africa.
  • The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
  • “God is a universal energy.”

She also said that the aliens had mentioned Isis, though she didn’t clarify if they meant the terrorist organization or the ancient Egyptian goddess.

Climate Change in Action

This Global Warming is causing the penguins to starve. This is terrible. The Warming is causing this freezing causing the chicks to starve but in the Arctic, it is good for the polar bears, but not good for the penguins. So we need more warming in the Antarctic but not the Arctic.

Maybe that lying mushwit, Michael Mann has an answer. He seems to be running his mouth about Climate Change all the time. Come to think of it, so is Obama and Gore experts on this matter. They most likely can provide a couple tons of BS to confound the situation.

Thousands of penguin chicks starve in Antarctica

Mass starvation has wiped out thousands of penguin chicks in Antarctica, with unusually thick sea ice forcing their parents to forage further for food in what conservationists Friday called a “catastrophic breeding failure”.

French scientists, supported by WWF, have been studying a colony of 18,000 pairs of Adelie penguins in East Antarctica since 2010 and discovered only two chicks survived the most recent breeding season in early 2017.

They attributed the disaster to extensive sea ice late in the summer, meaning the adult penguins had to travel further to find food, with the chicks dying as they waited.

Yan Ropert-Coudert, senior penguin scientist at Dumont D’Urville research station, adjacent to the colony, said the region was impacted by environmental changes linked to the breakup of the Mertz glacier.

“The conditions are set for this to happen more frequently due to the breaking of the Mertz glacier in 2010 that changed the configuration of the stretch of sea in front of the colony,” he told AFP.

“But there are other factors needed to have a zero year: a mix of temperature, wind direction and strength, no opening of polynya in front of the colony.”

A polynya is an area of unfrozen sea within an ice pack.

He added that the coming season seemed to be better for the birds in terms of sea ice “but we never know how it will turn unfortunately”.

Surviving mostly on a diet of krill — a small shrimp-like crustacean — Adelie penguins, slick and efficient swimmers, have been generally faring well in East Antarctica.

But they have been declining in the Antarctic region more generally where climate change has taken its toll, with shifting ice reducing habitat while warming seas affect their prey. [snip]
