Observations

Complicated? No, what it does is toss this item back into the Congress where it should have been voted on in the first place. Voters then will have the law as they want it.

Overturning Roe v. Wade would send issue back to states. Then it gets complicated

Almost half a century has passed, so forgive Dave Heinemann if he doesn’t remember every single detail of how things went down that long spring day in Topeka.

But one thing the former Kansas lawmaker hasn’t forgotten is the intensity of the 1969 debate on a measure that made abortion more accessible in the state.

“The Legislature was rewriting the state’s criminal code, and there was one section on abortion,” said Heinemann, then a Garden City Republican serving his first term in the Legislature. “That was the only section that really became a lightning rod.[snip]

Lee and others say they don’t think the Supreme Court would reverse Roe right away if conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed. It’s more likely, Lee said, that the court would simply uphold state laws already on the books that regulate abortion. [snip]

This only has a complication for those who want an abortion any ole time. The best part of undoing Roe is it will force those feckless bastards taking our money while shirking the kob they were sent to Congress to do.

SCOTUS made law; they’re not paid to do that. Congress ducked making law; for that they’re paid. We’re NOT paying then to insure reelection. Force them to do that for which we pay them. Vote the will of the electorate or their conscience. If their decision gets them fired, we get to put in another that votes the people’s choice.

Typical nonsense from a socialist.

Obama Attacks Wealthy For Big Houses Before Returning To His $8 Million Mansion

At a recent speech in South Africa, former President Barack Obama criticized wealth inequality, saying those who have more money should share their earnings with the less fortunate.

“Right now, I’m actually surprised by how much money I got,” Obama said of the more than $20 million he earned between 2005 and 2016.

Obama then chided wealthy individuals for excess, saying, “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.”
“We’re going to have to worry about economics if we want to get democracy back on track,” Obama continued “We’re going to have to consider new ways of thinking about these problems, like a universal income, review of our workweek, how we retrain our young people, how we make everybody an entrepreneur at some level.” [snip]

Illegal Immigration

The real insanity on the Left is they foul their own nest. Given that, they cannot help but step in it. Better they do it to themselves and we should avoid contact.
There is no immunization to protect the sane.

Busy Month for Illegal Immigrants Committing Heinous Crimes

As the separation of families pouring in from Mexico dominates the airwaves several disturbing cases involving illegal aliens shift the focus back to the devastating impact of America’s poorly guarded southern border. In the last few days alone, an illegal immigrant who had been deported eleven times attacked his wife with a chainsaw in front of their children, another got charged with a series of violent rapes and dozens were arrested for operating a major human and drug smuggling enterprise in a major U.S. city.

The gruesome chainsaw attack occurred in Los Angeles County, which has long offered illegal immigrants sanctuary. A man named Alejandro Alvarez-Villegas, deported to his native Mexico 11 times since 2005, tried to kill his wife with a chainsaw. In local media reports, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) refers to him as a “serial immigration violator,” but the agency fails to explain how that could possibly occur. Alvarez-Villegas has been charged with seven felonies and is being held without bail. One California newspaper worries that the assailant’s immigration status will fuel calls for a big wall on the border with Mexico and spark “illegal immigration foes to point to the U.S. immigration system as a failure in need of revamping.” The piece also quotes open borders advocates saying that domestic violence happens among Americans citizens too and that it’s not an “undocumented” problem.

Several hundred miles north in San Francisco, an illegal immigrant from Peru recently got charged with rape by force or violence and other crimes. The 37-year-old, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, was a driver for the ride-sharing company Lyft who somehow passed a background check. Lazo faces life in prison and is being held in jail in San Francisco on $4.2 million bail. San Francisco has long provided Illegal aliens with sanctuary and forbids it law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal immigration officials. Judicial Watch has sued the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department (SFSD) to prevent the use of taxpayer funds on policies that prohibit department personnel from cooperating with federal immigration law enforcement officials. Back in 2008 Judicial Watch investigated the SFSD’s handling of an illegal alien (Edwin Ramos) charged with the triple murder of three innocent American citizens. Ramos, who had been arrested on three prior occasions and convicted with two felonies, was never turned over to federal immigration authorities for removal to his native El Salvador under San Francisco’s sanctuary policies.

One could say that the Progressives/Socialists/Communists and other garden variety Liberals could/should be committed given they exhibit a massive mental disorder.
On the other hand, they committed themselves to a hellish and disorderly place.

They’re called Blue States.

One should ask the new darling of the Jackass Party if this is her concept of shared living through Government.

San Francisco’s mayor won’t crack down on people using city as an outdoor toilet

San Francisco is full of … well, it.

This isn’t a reference to the trash-talking between Golden State Warriors fans and Los Angeles Laker diehards over LeBron James.

It’s not even regarding the ongoing culinary rivalry that San Francisco has with foodies in New York City.

And it certainly has nothing to do with the criticism Bay Area politics receives from conservatives across the country on a daily basis.

Rather, as a statement of fact, in the most literal possible sense — San Francisco is full of excrement.

According to a recent NBC Bay Area investigation, an alarming amount of trash, used drug needles and feces are clogging San Francisco’s streets.

The report centered around a 153-block survey of downtown, which, according to the report, “revealed trash on every block, 100 needles and more than 300 piles of feces along the 20-mile stretch of streets and sidewalks.”

Talk about a slice of Norman Rockwell’s America. [snip]

This has to be a dream sales territory for a Febreez salesman/woman.

 

Another den of socialist money grabbing is found on the opposite coast. The new font of tax loot is tap water.

NJ considers taxing tap water

Never short on ideas for things to tax, lawmakers in New Jersey are considering a tax on tap water.

The proposal is being floated by State Sen. Bob Smith D-Middlesex, who is trying to say it’s not actually a tax but a ‘user fee’.

“It is a user fee based on volume,” Smith told Fox 5’s Chasing New Jersey.

It would add 10 cents for every 1,000 gallons of water a home uses. Smith says that will only add $32 a year to the “average” water bill.

He claims the money is needed to fix a crumbling water delivery infrastructure in the state.

The state already charges a public utility franchise tax on water system operators of $0.01 per 1,000 gallons of water delivered to a consumer. That tax, which went into effect in 1984, is supposed to “ensure clean drinking water in New Jersey.” [snip]

One New Jersey columnist suggested the next proposed tax will be on breathing.

The concept is that the water is on public land which the Progressives control; that means it is their water. So pay up.
