Lawmakers reject plan to require women to register for military draft

American Military News

The House Armed Services Committee has rejected a plan to require women between the ages of 18 and 26 to enter the Selective Service System, Military Times reported.

The rejection put the issue on hold until a review on the entire draft system is conducted. The decision followed up the debate on the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018.

Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democrat from California, and other lawmakers pushed for an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would have ordered women to sign up for potential involuntary military service with the Selective Service System 30 days after turning 18 years old. All men ages 18 to 26 are required to register.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry, a Republican from Texas, opposed the amendment because a review of the Selective Service System is forthcoming and new changes wouldn’t be necessary.

So what’s in this review? When is it going to start? And why can’t we get women signed up for the draft while we wait however long for that to take place? Are we considering doing away with it? If we are, in the meantime, we can get women signed up for it and if they do away with it, great, they’re cut loose just like the men.

But it seems to me that even with the pending review, men are still signing up for the draft. How come not women?

If you want equality, you take the good with the bad. You don’t just get equality of privilege. You get straight across equality. If the draft is good enough for the men, it should be good enough for the women, too. And if we, for some reason, do reinstate the draft, why should only the men be torn from their families involuntarily? This is what equality looks like.

Don’t get me wrong. I do, in fact, support women in combat. I know a lot of folks don’t, but I do. However, if you want into combat, you get into the draft, too. I’m sorry. That’s how it works, ladies.

There’s nothing strange about it. The media has a liberal bias, everyone knows that. To top it off, the box they have created for women is one of being very liberal. So, of course, the only valid first female president would be a female because there is no such thing is a female on the right.

And aside from all of that is the desire for the left to “make history” above helping the country. I wouldn’t vote for any of those women. I don’t feel like having a president who decides I get my rights taken away for my own good. Or preached to about how privileged I am. Or told that I have to buy things that I don’t want and that doesn’t benefit me in any way. Or tells me that by the pure nature of me being female, I am automatically a victim. Or tells me they believe in freedom of speech or gun rights or economic freedom “but….” Oprah would remind us all daily about how racist we all are, so we can expect further division. Well, to be fair to Oprah… every single one of these women would work hard at further division in the USA.

No thanks. I’ll take a hard pass on all of them.

New Hampshire Lawmakers Accidentally Pass Law Allowing Pregnant Women to Kill People

This whole debacle began when Republicans passed a bill that would make killing a fetus “fetal homicide.” After 20 weeks of pregnancy, the unborn child would be legally be defined as a person. Similar laws are already on the books in some 38 states.

Senate Bill 66 did attempt to make some exceptions. Women who wanted abortions and their doctors could still take drastic measures. If a legal abortion were to take place, it wouldn’t violate the new law.

In that effort, though, the language got a bit muddled.  It read “any act committed by the pregnant woman” would be legal, even “in cases of second-degree murder, manslaughter, negligent homicide, or causing or aiding suicide.”

It is difficult for some to see this as a simple accident. The wording seems quite specific, and based on some legal interpretations of the law, a pregnant woman could kill anyone over 20 weeks old with impunity and without consequence. Even so, many of the lawmakers who voted for Senate Bill 66 had not noticed the language. When it was brought to their attention, they scrambled to find a fix.

For anyone wondering, yes, it’s been fixed.

But I think we’re going to need to add this one to the list of crap I shouldn’t laugh at, but did anyway.

I was out to dinner with friends tonight and read this during a bathroom break. Went back to the table and the one couple there has four kids, so I told them about this, chuckling. The husband says, “Oh they need to fix that, people are going to die!” At which point his wife busted out in maniacal laughter. LOL!

That about sums it up.

N.C. law: Woman can’t back out of sex once underway

Aaliyah Palmer was at a party when a man pulled her into a bathroom for sex.

She was willing.

But, she told Fayetteville police, when the sex turned violent, she told the man to stop. He didn’t listen.

She thought what happened to her was rape, but she found out that under North Carolina law a woman is not allowed to back out of sex once it is underway.

“It’s really stupid,” Palmer, 19, said of the law. “If I tell you no and you kept going, that’s rape.”

In 1979, the North Carolina Supreme Court, in State v. Way, ruled that women cannot revoke consent after sexual intercourse begins.

Wow. I don’t even know where to go with this one. My brain immediately took on the ways this could go bad or go well.

OK, so my initial reaction to this is that it is completely insane. In this woman’s situation, if the sex became violent and she didn’t want to take part in that, she should have had the right to say no, this needs to stop. And when he refused, yes, I would call that rape.

My mind is in a uproar over this, however, because we all know damn well that some woman somewhere is going to claim she told the guy half way through that she wanted to stop and was then raped. Whether she actually told him to stop or not. I mean, how the hell do you prove that she did or did not tell him to stop half way through?!

BUT! Either party should be allowed to say stop at any time during the act and have that respected. It’s still your body, and sex takes an intense amount of trust to engage in.

Let me know what you think here, guys. What’s your take on this?

On This Father’s Day, Let’s Celebrate Our Dads

thOK, so first off, before I go into my rant, I want to wish a very happy Father’s Day to all the dads reading this. I hope you all have a wonderful day today.

Now, the rant.

I logged on this morning to Facebook and watched the Father’s Day progression. It started off with wishing everyone a happy Father’s Day. Then it became dead dads on parade, which it usually does. I didn’t add mine to the list. I changed my profile picture to my dad’s picture for the day, but everyone who gives a crap about me knows my dad died, so I won’t bring everyone else down. There is no big memorial to my dad.

Then it began. My pet peeve on Father’s Day.

“Happy Father’s Day to all the single mothers out there who have to act as dads, too!”

No. This is not your day. I’m sorry. I know you feel slighted by some man somewhere, but this is not your damn day. This day is for dads. If you don’t have a dad for whatever reason, or your husband/partner/boyfriend left you with a kid, you don’t get to hijack the day. I’m sorry for your situation. Really, I am. And I am not diminishing what you do for your children.

But we celebrated you on Mother’s Day. You don’t get both days because life is hard. I’m sorry. I didn’t hear anyone celebrating single dad’s on Mother’s Day. And it isn’t going to kill you to allow dads to have a day to be celebrated alone. There are a lot of good men out there who stuck around and raised their children. They deserve their day without you taking it over because you were slighted by a man who doesn’t deserve the day anyway.

So to all the single moms out there, we love you and we get it, but you had your day. Let the dads have their day without the posturing.

Happy Father’s Day, dads!

Breastfeeding is Apparently Anti-Feminist Now

I’m sorry, wait a minute.

Tucker is right… men can’t naturally produce milk for a child. So no, there isn’t another “natural” way to feed a child other than breast milk.

Is there a problem with women who can’t produce milk to use formula? No, of course not! You feed your kid however the heck you have to feed your kid!

Is there a problem with letting dad feed the kid from a bottle? NO! Of course not! Please, by all means, mix up some formula or – God forbid – use a breast pump and fill a bottle with breast milk. It’s a wonderful way for a father to bond with his child.

But to insist that breast feeding isn’t natural? I’m sorry… but how the heck did our ancient ancestors survive then? The cavemen weren’t going to the corner store for formula and warming it up in the microwave. The milk a woman naturally produces in order to sustain the life of her child is always more natural than feeding the baby a powdered mixture of fake sustenance you bought from the grocery store. And just because a man can’t produce that milk doesn’t mean mom can’t bottle it so he can feed the kid, too! And just because everyone has to be empowered in a group think kind of manner and all that great stuff doesn’t mean dad should be forced to be the sole feeder of the kid, either! Feeding is a bonding experience with your baby! You should both be taking the opportunity to feed the baby!

Breast feeding is natural! Period! I don’t care what you read somewhere or how empowered you are. If you are too empowered to feed your kid, don’t have one! And if dad is so much of a beta male that he’s crying in his romper because he can’t naturally feed the baby, why are you breeding with him anyway?!

You people are a walking first world problem!!!

HuffPo, Twitter mock Mike Pence for respecting his wife in his dealings with other women

Mocking what it doesn’t understand, HuffPo elaborates:

HermanCain.com

Believe it or not, two people of the opposite sex eating together doesn’t always end in a night of unbridled passion.

On Tuesday, a Washington Post profile about Karen Pence, wife to Vice President Mike Pence, surfaced an intriguing tidbit first revealed to The Hill in 2002. Pence will not eat alone with any woman who is not his wife, nor will he go to any events serving alcohol without his wife alongside him.

The couple’s strict marriage rules have sparked a lot of controversy and some downright mockery. But what really got Twitter riled up, was when conservative blogger Matt Walsh weighed in on Wednesday, asking if there’s ever an “appropriate reason” for a married person to go out for a meal alone with someone of the opposite sex.

I’ve been listening to the wild screeching of feminists since this became a headline for whatever unknown reason. I’ve read a lot of the articles, too. Mostly because I am trying to figure out what the big friggin’ deal is!

I think it’s beautiful. No, really, I do. I’m sorry, but everyone has a different marriage from everyone else. What the left saw as some kind of feminist assault, I saw as a man trying to remain faithful to a woman he made an honest commitment to by removing any possible temptation. It doesn’t mean he’s going to get wasted and jump the next woman he sees if his wife is not around. But it does mean he has enough respect for his wife to not cause her undo stress and worry. There’s no questions here. Everything is right there in the open for both of them.

Now, I can support this because I “lost” a friend this way. There was a young man I worked with for several years in two locations, and I was very close to him, enough so to call him a brother. We had zero sexual attraction to each other. But during the course of us working together, he married a young woman that he adored. When I left the last job we worked at together, I explained to him as I was leaving that I would not be contacting him because his wife was mildly jealous and I didn’t want to cause harm to their marriage. We haven’t spoken since. I think of him often and fondly. But I respect him and his wife enough to understand how she feels and to let him go from my life so I don’t damage their marriage.

So what I see happening between Mike Pence and his wife is respect. I know some people don’t grasp this sort of marriage, but I personally find it beautiful.
