So, sometimes things are pretty clear to everyone, except when they are not. And the perfect example of this is a story that comes to us today from Florida. A small dairy business is being forced by the state government to get rid of gallons and gallons of perfectly fine, natural skim milk because the state is requiring the business to label its product “imitation” because they haven’t added anything to it. That’s right. Milk that comes directly out of the cow and simply had the fat removed is now being called “imitation” by the government. Why? Well – “Department lawyer Ashley Davis told a judge consumers expect whole milk and skim milk to have the same nutritional value and that the company’s skim milk is nutritionally inferior because vitamins are removed when the milk fat is removed.” Putting it even more bluntly, she said- “(their) product is imitating — literally imitating — skim milk.” Crazy, right? Schizophrenic, some would say. But that is the state of things in America today, or in the West, for that matter.
One of the major stories that has been brewing over the past few weeks is that of the anti-abortionists that went undercover and recorded meetings they had with various executives at Planned Parenthood. According to the videos that have been released so far, the topics have covered buying specific baby parts, the subsequent inter-state tracking of said body parts, and even purposely altering the operation procedure to acquire the body parts that were to be sold on for “research” purposes, to keeping “an aborted baby alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility” to the even more shocking revelation that – “a medical technician used scissors to cut through the face of a newly aborted but nearly fully developed baby boy at a Planned Parenthood facility so that his intact brain could be extracted.” And while California law prohibits any kind of experimentation of a fetus with a discernible heartbeat, the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 says that when a child is born alive, including having a beating heart, he or she is a legal person and has a right to lifesaving medical care. Apparently, those are just laws though, you know, something to follow when people are watching, but something to laugh at behind closed doors.
And speaking of laughing behind closed doors, so Hillary Clinton, Bradley Manning, and General David Petraeus walk into a bar, and Hillary ducks. Ha ha ha ha. Well, at least she has been able to so far. But many pundits are starting to ask what really the difference between the three is. Recently Donald Trump — “…pointed to the legal saga of Gen. David Petraeus as a cautionary tale for Clinton, saying the former CIA director, who was prosecuted for sharing classified information with his biographer-mistress, was a choirboy by comparison.” Trump continued by saying — “General Petraeus, for doing 5 percent of what she did, has had his life destroyed.”
As the Clinton email scandal continues to emerge, numerous pundits have come forward noting that this story has so many legs, it is hard to understand which direction to go in first. The fact that she used as private email server hosted by a small mom and pop company that was apparently party affiliated and that was apparently located in a bathroom closet in Colorado? The fact that she set up the server prior to her taking the job as America’s top diplomat, suggesting that this was a preplanned move to limit her exposure and definitely to control her future disclosure of events? The fact that she put classified emails onto thumb drives and carried them out of non-secure areas? Which by the way, is pretty much was Bradley Manning did. The fact that she apparently just wanted to change the rules, to make her life easier. Or the fact that she apparently attempted to delete the emails by “wiping” the server, and no, not as she cleverly retorted, “with a cloth”. In fact, this entire scandal continues to grow on a daily basis, simply because of the lying about the lie to hide the lie. Trump noted-“This looks like Watergate on steroids, frankly. Watergate was about the cover-up more than the act.”
Of course, Hillary would know all about Watergate, since as it has been said — “As a 27 year old staff attorney for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation, Hillary Rodham was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman. When asked why Hillary Rodham was fired, Zeifman said in an interview, "Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer; she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the Committee, and the rules of confidentiality.”
So, what do you think dear listeners, ‘What is wrong with America today?’
