Day 100/101

Weekend of April 09/10:

Federal employees, military families breathe sigh of relief
And I was one of them!!  My pay has yet to reflect that the shutdown didn't happen, though.  I'm still showing only 1/2 pay coming, as are others.

Cleveland airport terminal, planes evacuated after screening glitch
"A little bit of inconvenience"???  Are they kidding??  Have you ever had YOUR flight delayed a couple of hours for something stupid?  I have.  Ended up getting stuck overnight in Denver because of it.  NOT fun!

Women Dem. senators angry family planning funds part of negotiations
I might be really off, but it seems to me like the last sticking point of the gov't shutdown was due to debate over funding abortions/women's health, depending on which perspective you take.  Abortion has often been debated over whether it should be a federal or state-based issue, so proposing to allow each state to choose where their money goes doesn't surprise me.  I'd just like to know what these women had against that particular option.

Trump talks birthers, White House adviser predicts his failure
Dude!  I said it before, and I'll say it again. If there was anything, ANYTHING, to be found regarding Obama not being born in the U.S., then Hillary's camp would have found it back in 08.  They had the big guns out against him.  If they didn't find anything, then there's nothing to be found.  Plus, this article claims that Obama DID release a copy of his Birth Certificate.  If he did, then what's the damn debate???


  1. interesting day in retrospective.

  2. I don't know the exact details of the abortion/women's health debate. All I know is that the opposition had been touting it as cutting off all government funding to Planned Parenthood. If all they were doing was giving the rights to fund over the state, then I don't see what the big deal is here. Gotta cut corners some how.
    Amd fuck birthers. They are so annoying.

  3. Very interesting! thanks for the post
