Beginning July 1, 2017, It will be Harder to Kill a Child in Tennessee.

You heard right.  In what has been referred to as one of the strongest pro-life bills in the country, Tennessee’s new bill that details the steps needed to kill a human child takes effect on Saturday, July 1, 2017

Senate Bill 1180 was signed on May 11, 2017 by Gov. Bill Haslam.  

You can read the bill here

Doubt me?  

Here are a couple of definitions per SB 1180.

"Abortion" means the use of any instrument, medicine, drug, or any other substance or device with intent to terminate the pregnancy of a woman known to be pregnant with intent other than to increase the probability of a live birth, to preserve the life or health of the child after live birth, or to remove a dead fetus. 

"Pregnant" means the human female reproductive condition, of having a living unborn child within her body throughout the entire embryonic and fetal stages of the unborn child from fertilization to full gestation and childbirth. 

"Unborn child" means an individual living member of the species, homo sapiens, throughout the entire embryonic and fetal stages of the unborn child from fertilization to full gestation and childbirth. 

"Viable" and "viability" mean that stage of fetal development when the unborn child is capable of sustained survival outside of the womb, with or without medical assistance.

So according to SB 1180, an unborn child refers to a living member of the homo sapiens species ~human~ from beginning ~fertilization~ to birth.  

That would be a human child.  So the question remains.  Is a human child a person or property?  Does the answer to that question depend on the location of the child?  Does it depend on the skin pigmentation of the child?  Does it depend on the gender of the child?  Does it depend on the health of the child?

The new law states that “No person shall purposely perform or induce, or attempt to perform or induce, an abortion upon a pregnant woman when the unborn child is viable.”  What follows in the bill are details of how one deems whether the unborn child is viable.    A doctor must assess viability starting at 20 weeks and if the baby is past 24 weeks, the child is protected from being killed.

What does this mean in plain English?  That it is perfectly legal to kill a human child in Tennessee as long as this human child is younger than 20 weeks of gestational age.  A doctor can decide to kill a child until he/she is 24 weeks if the doctor deems that the child is not viable.  After 24 weeks, it is illegal to kill the child unless the mother’s life is in danger ~and who gets to decide this?  The same doctor who is going to kill the child?~  Which makes the whole law null and void.  But, alas, that is an article for another time.

This bill is named The Tennessee Infants Protection Act.  It doesn’t sound like its very effective protection for babies before 20 weeks to me.  

How about you?

Anyone else find it ironic that this law goes into effect just a mere 4 days before our country celebrates it's independence?  

"WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"

Without Life, there is no Liberty or Pursuit of Happiness.

Not Only is Rand Paul Palling Around with McConnell, so is Trump . . .

One of the criticisms of Trump supporters of Ted Cruz is that he was neutral in the Mississippi Primary race of Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel in 2014.  In fact, according to critics of Cruz, he was more than neutral because Cruz was on the National Republican Senatorial Committee ~NRSC~ when they went all in for Cochran and against McDaniel.  According to them this is proof that Cruz is not who he says he is.  

Let's look at what Trump was doing during that election cycle.  He was donating to Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, which was the super PAC that went scorched earth after McConnell's challenger, Matt Bevin and the Tea Party.  That's right, Donald Trump gave $50,000 to get McConnell reelected.

Trump supporters like to say that Trump will take on the Republican establishment, but where does that faith actually come from?  

Remember that Trump is the master of the "Art of the Deal."    

I think I will stick to the Consistent Conservative, Ted Cruz.  
Another interesting fact is the Chris McDaniel is Ted Cruz's Mississippi campaign chair, so I'm thinking that McDaniel isn't holding onto a grudge against Cruz.

What If Trump is Wrong on Immigration?

"It doesn't matter how liberal Donald Trump is as long as he's right on immigration."  Ann Coulter

I have had also Trump supporters say the same thing to me.  So what if Trump is wrong on immigration?  

What is the fastest way to get Trump supporters to go Alinsky?  It's using Trump's own words to prove that he is for amnesty.  
“I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal…. A lot of these people are helping us … and sometimes it’s jobs a citizen of the United States doesn’t want to do. I want to move ’em out, and we’re going to move ’em back in and let them be legal.” Donald Trump

Let's think about this for a minute.  This is an actual conversation that I had with a Trump supporter ~before she went birther and start calling me names~. 


Me:   “So what is will Trump's legal process for US immigration entail?   Details . . . details . . . those pesky details. . .”

Trump Supporter:   “Well, by enforcing the laws already on the books. .Pausing immigratiion from terrorist states the same way that Obama stopped Iraqi immigrants in 2011, Chester A. Arthur did in 1882, Wilson did in 1917, and FDR did with Japanese, Germans, and Italians during World War II. 
“Simple, huh?”

Me:  “Trump says ‘I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal…. A lot of these people are helping us … and sometimes it’s jobs a citizen of the United States doesn’t want to do. I want to move ’em out, and we’re going to move ’em back in and let them be legal.’” 
What is that expedited process? Will they be going to the front of the line? If so, who will they pass over to get to the front of the line? Will they pay a fine? Will they be eligible for citizenship once they get back in? The devil is in the details which Trump is very short on.”

Trump Supporter:   “The ‘expedited way’ would be to put them in a facility similar to Ellis Island (remember that place?). To assign the authorities to THOROUGHLY vet each individual--and separate those who will be allowed admittance--EXACTLY like we did with Ellis Island. Many immigrants at Ellis were rejected, if you will recall, and sent back to their native countries.
“There are NO ‘devils in the details’ here. He has said numerous times that he is going to follow the laws already on the books. 
“Instead of attacking, why don't you just settle down and do some thoughtful research instead?” She then posted these two links.

Me:  “Sorry, but if they've already broken the law to get here, I'm not sure I want them back. And how expensive will it be to deport them first? Why not do the vetting here?
“Please post a link that says Trump wants to follow the laws already on the books. 
And what is Trump going to do with the ‘Dreamers'?
"We’re going to do something. I’ve been giving it so much thought, you know you have a — on a humanitarian basis, you have a lot of deep thought going into this, believe me. I actually have a big heart.…I mean, a lot of people don’t understand that, but the DREAMers, it’s a tough situation, we’re going to do something, and one of the things we’re going to do is expedite — when somebody’s terrific, we want them back here, but they have to be legally…They’re with their parents, it depends. But, look, it sounds cold, and it sounds hard. But, we have a country, our country’s going to hell. We have to have a system where people are legally in our country." Donald Trump
“What exactly do we ‘have’ to do? Trump keeps saying that he has a big heart so everyone will be take care of. I don't need a dogooder in the WH that is going to take care of everyone. I want a proven Constitutional conservative who can defend and teach free markets and stands up for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Trump Supporter:  “You know, you don't want to debate. You just want to be ugly and fight."

Me:  “I am simply responding to you and your statements about Trump and immigration. I know there isn't a perfect candidate, but you haven't brought up the bad in Ted Cruz, just defended Trump when I poked holes in his #1 issue. Trump may have become conservative ~which I welcome~ but I am going to go with the most consistent conservative who doesn't throw temper tantrums and has a proven record of being a conservative. 
“Why is Trump attacking Ted Cruz from the left? He ~and his supporters~ are using leftist tactics. It's funny that you have mentioned supporters; I have been unfriended and blocked by Trump supporters as well as being called a racist by someone whose congressional campaign I worked on.”

The big question about immigration is who and how many do we let come into our country?  Do we want millions of unskilled and uneducated foreigners coming into our country?  It isn't just the terrorists, drug dealers and other criminals coming across the border that most Americans don't want.  We understand the economic impact that these millions of unskilled and uneducated illegals are having on our country; on our healthcare system, on our state and local school budgets, on wages.  

This ad by Ted Cruz nails it.  

How many unskilled and uneducated individuals is Donald Trump going to let in thru the "big beautiful door" that he is going to put in the Trump wall?

What I Don't Like About the Primaries . . .

I am a free market capitalist thru and thru.  I love competition; in business, in the arena of ideas, and even in ~gasp!~ kids’ sports and academics.  Competition brings better value to the consumer.   This is why I like primaries.  We get to hear candidates make their case for what they believe in . . . or what they think you believe in.  The trick is being able to tell the bs from the truth.  This is where records come in handy.

The part that I don’t like about primaries is that in advocating for their candidacy, many supporters ~and candidates themselves~ go off the deep end in attacking their competition.  I am all for pointing out your opponents’ beliefs and why yours are better, but the personal attacks is something that those who don’t have confidence in their own ideas have to do.  I pay close attention to what candidates say about their competition.  Are they accurate?  If they lie about their opponents, then I won’t trust them when they talk about their own beliefs.  This is the problem that I have with Huckabee and Santorium and Trump.  

A quote attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt is “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”   Except in politics!!  Actually, I think it applies to politics as well.  This is what I really like about Ted Cruz.   He talks policies and ideas, not people.  

Which brings me to a big reason that I have been turned off of Trump.  It is his supporters.  I appreciate that Trump is bringing up issues and is willing to say things that are not PC . . . 
But so many can’t take criticism of their candidate.  I’m
thinking specifically about a certain blog where I have a branch at the bottom.  They remind me of Obots and Paulbots.  They attack Ted Cruz using leftist tactics.  

They are attacking Ted’s father faith as being kooky.  Really?!?  

They have gone birther . . . 

They are showing their ignorance of how brokerage accounts work . . .

They have attacked Ted Cruz's wife . . . 

And when you question Trump's own support of amnesty, they go Alinsky.

Here are two examples of this that have happened in the last 48 hours.  These are personal attacks by individuals that I have had relationships with for 5+ years.  

This is what prompted this response.

Here is the Trump quote in question: 
“I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal…. A lot of these people are helping us … and sometimes it’s jobs a citizen of the United States doesn’t want to do. I want to move ’em out, and we’re going to move ’em back in and let them be legal.”  

Instead of simply answering my question about the substance of my question, he decided that he would personally attack me instead.  

And block me on Twitter.

This is an exchange that I had with another Trump supporter who has gone birther . . . 

Why won't Trump supporters admit that their candidate has flaws?

Because the only issue that Trump has is immigration. If that is shown to be false, then everything else falls apart.

"It doesn't matter how liberal Donald Trump is as long as he's right on immigration."  Ann Coulter.

This is why Trump supporters must go Alinsky.

BeautiControl’s Detox Clay Masque is made from black clay, that’s gathered from lakes in Eastern Europe, chosen because of their ability to hold minerals and hydrate the skin. Unlike other clay masques, it doesn’t dry, so you don’t feel like your face will crack if you move.  It actually surges moisture while absorbing toxins.

This masque has helped many with migraines and sinus headaches; bug bites and bee stings; burns and poison ivy; pimples and cold sores.  Men and teens can use it too!  

Lip Apeel removes the dull and dry skin on your lips and leaves them kissably soft.

After you cleanse your face, apply detox masque to damp skin.  Leave on 10-15 minutes.  Apply Lip Apeel to lips.  I recommend that you get either the lip balm with SPF 20 or lip balm when you choose the Lip Apeel.  You will use them more often than the Lip Masque part of the Lip Apeel.

Remove with damp wash cloth.  Follow with your tonic and rest of skin care regime.  Apply lip balm to lips.
