First Mayor Bloomberg moves to ban 20 oz sodas. To go into the stupidity of this law is useless. I don't even drink soda, I think soda is toxic, and I still think this is a new level of stupid.
Second- the big story this week that no one heard, networks decided this wasn't terribly newsworthy, as opposed to the 20 oz soda- the House tried to pass a bill prohibiting gender selective abortions- and it got shot down. This wasn't some trick to ban abortions- it was to ban killing female babies prior to birth strictly because they are female. This was on the cusp of some videos being released showing Planned Parenthood advising women on how to abort their babies if they are indeed female. Aside from this being absolutely appalling, my tax dollars are funding this. Oh, and President Obama supports taxpayer funding of gender specific abortions.
This my liberal friends is why conservatives want to de-fund planned parenthood. Not to deny women mammograms, nor deny rape and incest victims abortions, but because each morning I wake up and go to work, and a chunk of the money I earn funds late-term abortions and gender specific abortions.
Granted, gender specific abortions are not currently running rampant- however there is substantial evidence that they are indeed occurring, how many baby girls need to die before we as a country decide we are not going to engage in eugenics? If just one baby girl is killed because she's a girl- and we paid for it- isn't that enough?
In what world does a 20 oz soda get more media coverage than a tax payer funded institution facilitating female gendercide? In what world is it not o.k. to put 20oz of soda in my mouth, but it is o.k. to kill he female baby growing within me strictly because it's female? This is the United States of America the far left has created for us, and it's our new reality.
