TGIF – March 16, 2018

March 16, 2018

The JROTC is not the problem.

So-called pacifist organizations like codepink.org are once again blaming the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps for the Stoneman-Douglas school shooting, presumably because the killer Cruz is said to have learned to shoot through the program.  .

These quasi-anti-war groups have been for the complete dismantling of the military forever, and the very idea that anyone should train people to be soldiers is anathema to them.

Anti-war groups became famous during the Viet Nam war era, but they have been active since before WWI. Today however, many of the so-called pacifists are actually fronts for an ideology that is decidedly not peaceful.

What about the JROTC?

First of all, it’s not the military that is the problem. Second, not very many people in JROTC actually go on to volunteer to fight in the military. Third, the current protest is not about the military, it’s about disarming America.

Let us not forget that at least two JROTC members  saved the lives of several students at Stoneman-Douglas and one died doing it. They and fellow students and staff stepped up while law enforcement was standing down.

Once again. It’s not the color of your skin or whether you cover that skin with a uniform.

It’s about the color of your soul.

Obamacare still needs to go away.

Idaho has been trying to find a way to offer non-Obamacare-compliant plans alongside ACA-compliant ones as a means to allow coverage for people caught in the “too much income for subsidies, too little for insurance” trap.

These plans could reportedly slash the cost of health insurance by as much as 50%.

On March 9, it was reported that Idaho had received a letter from CMS indicating that until the law was repealed the state could not offer non-compliant plans to its citizens, even though it was keeping all the Obamacare-compliant ones too..

Of course the lying liberal media immediately tried to portray the state’s attempt to find a way to cover those who do not have any kind of insurance now as unconstitutional and predatory, as noted in this February 3, 2018 article in the Idaho Statesman newspaper.

Interestingly one of the arguments is that Idaho must abide by the Constitution’s supremacy clause.

In view of what’s going on in California, that’s truly rich.

So what’s better? Not requiring obstetrics coverage for a 60-year old man, or not having any insurance at all?

If you have to think about that, you are definitely NOT a redneck.

Note to HRC.

From a tweet comes the following question for the former candidate.

What about white women with no husband, no sons, no brothers, no living fathers, who voted for Trump?”

Maybe they have one thing Hillary Clinton doesn’t;  a working brain.
