Mayor: Baltimore Being ‘Destroyed By Thugs In Senseless Way’ | The Daily Caller

The mayor said that the city is being “destroyed by thugs who in a very senseless way are trying to tear down what so many have fought for.”

One wonders if the mayor thinks there might be a sensible way to destroy Baltimore.

Hillary Clinton: ‘Religious Beliefs Have to Be Changed’ to Accommodate Abortion | National Review Online

God help us. Mrs. Clinton wants to change what our religious beliefs are to agree with what she thinks is right.

The highway to hell starts with this:

Hillary Clinton believes that “religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” to expand access to abortion.

The Open Air Fair in lovely Atchison, Kansas

Russell Showalter and I shared a booth at the Open Air Fair in Atchison, Kansas today. It was a great venue, the new Farmers’ Market in Atchison (which does not open until next weekend).

I have not done a lot of arts and crafts shows, but it was quite obvious that this group knows what the heck they are doing.  They were very organized, extremely helpful and easy to work with.

The only problem was the weather.  It was drizzly and unseasonably cold all day long. Even so, there were more people there than I would have expected considering the crumby weather.

Here are some pictures of our booth and the fair.

Democrats Defend Political Persecutions in Texas | National Review Online

The Democrats are not our friends.

Harry Reid—and every Democrat in the Senate—voted to repeal the First Amendment to render the Supreme Court powerless to protect Americans from this sort of abuse. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. wants to put Americans in prison for disagreeing with him about global warming—and many so-called progressives agree with him. Under the Obama administration, we have seen a weaponized IRS targeting conservative groups for persecution and a weaponized FBI leaning on conservative activists, followed up by a weaponized ATF.

It’s always something

I went out to let the goats out for their afternoon of grazing wherever they want, and poor little Angel (Willow’s twin brother), burst out of the barn with a bloody horn.  I have no clue how he managed to break it, but here it is, in all its bloody gory.

John held him while I have him a tetanus shot (he’s only had one CDT) and applied bloodstop and UltraBoss to keep flies away.

I must admit he is not a tame little buckling at all.  I had to actually force his mouth open to give him a peanut because he would not take it from me.  He promptly spit it out and then picked it up off the floor and gobbled it down.

I have to go figure out what he got caught in, and it’s time to distribute the fly predators, also.

Kirsten Powers: Christians thrown overboard left to drown by Obama

Kirsten Powers is a liberal Democrat.  She is also a Christian and one of the very few Democrats in our country to speak out against Christian persecution in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Here is an excerpt, but do go read the entire article.

Obama was mute on the killings. He failed to interject any sense of outrage or even tepid concern for the targeting of Christians for their faith. If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested? When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.

The CEO pay ratio isn’t as big as you’ve been told | RedState

Every time Hillary opens her mouth about “inequality”, a demon gets his horns.

Ms. Clinton famously earned $200,000 to $300,000 per speaking engagement before she declared her campaign for the Presidency. That means in one event, she earned more than the average CEO did in 2013. One wonders what she thinks about that pay ratio?

U.S. cracks down on female teachers who sexually abuse students | Reuters

How many public school employees are sexually abusing children in the schools? 800 in one year!
It’s about time this kind of abuse by both female and male teachers is addressed. But I don’t hear any politician even mentioning this.

In U.S. schools last year, almost 800 school employees were prosecuted for sexual assault, nearly a third of them women. The proportion of women facing charges seems to be higher than in years past, when female teachers often got a pass, said Terry Abbott, a former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education, who tracked the cases.

This year’s numbers are already slightly ahead of last year with 26 cases of female school employees accused of inappropriate relationships with male students in January compared to 19 cases the previous January.
