Teenage Pregnancy Is OnThe Rise In Texas


      "In several major cities in Texas teen birthrates are 40% to 50% higher than the national average,said Gwen Daverth, CEO of the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy


      Teen pregnancy, especially in low income areas, is on the rise in Texas, according to research carried out by Miami University economist Analisa Packham,

      This public health problem follows an all out war on reproductive care for women in the Lone Star State. The state has also implemented abstinence- only instruction in sex-education classes. Not surprisingly, there are more pregnant young women and more poor families who are unable to adequately provide for their children.

      Texas has developed a highly effective strategy for destroying s the state’s family-planning services through severe budget cuts and paralyzing regulations, according to the Nation Magazine. Women with means can afford to travel substantial distances for this care, but the poor teens cannot.

      "Another measure of the social cost of this trend is that Texas leads the country in public spending related to social costs of unintended pregnancy—actually outspending liberal California by about 50 percent. “ the Nation article states.

      In Texas every year, about 35,000 young women get pregnant before they turn 20. And while rates of teen pregnancy are on the decline nationwide, in Texas the rate is rising.

      Gwen Daverth, CEO of the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, says the high numbers in Texas reflect policy, not promiscuity, according to an article prepared by National Public Radio. In Texas, high risk teen are not able to find low cost contraceptive services. In several major cities in Texas teen birthrates are 40% to 50% higher than the national average.

      Trump And His Great Accomplishments

      As Trump neared his 100 day mark, his administration has been touting his achievements In anticipation of that day the WH released a statement praising the president for signing a "slew" of legislation, "despite historic Democratic obstructionism." They state this despite the fact that Republicans control both Houses of Congress and the WH. The statement said, "President Trump has worked with Congress to pass more legislation in his first 100 days than any president since Truman," noting that former president Obama enacted 11 laws during his first 100 days.

      While Trump has signed 28 congressional actions since taking office, none are major pieces of legislation. Slightly under half are rollbacks of Obama term regulations. If you look at it, Obama signed the stimulus package into law before his 100th day, which was a major piece of legislation.

      Let's take a look at the laws that Trump has signed leading up to that 100th day:

      1. H.R. 609, March 13. This bill designates a VA healthcare center in Butler County, PA. (Abie Abraham VA Clinic).

      2. H.J.R. 40 February 28. This bill, which is now law, repeals an Obama-era rule which prohibited the mentally disabled from being able to purchase firearms. Obama signed an EO which mandated that the Soc Sec Admin submit names of mentally ill individuals to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, following the San Bernardino terrorist attck in 2015.

      3. H.R. 255 Feb 28, The Promoting Women In Entrepreneurship Act. Authorizes the National Science Foundation to support entrepreneurial programs for women.

      4. H.R. 32 Feb 28, Inspiring the Next Space Pioneers, Innovators, Researchers, and Explorers (INSPIRE) Women Act. Basically, submitting a plan to the House Committee on Science, Space, and Tech for how NASA scientists can engage with and promote female STEM students from K-12.

      5. Trump signed a congressional action repealing an Obama term reg which prevented coal mining companies from dumping debris and toxic waste into nearby streams and waterways. In other words, there is now nothing to stop coal mining companies from polluting our waterways with their waste products.

      6. Trump signed a Congressional Review Act resolution which rolled back financial disclosure requirements for energy companies mandated by Dodd-Frank. It required energy companies to disclose payments made to governments that related to fossil fuel development.

      7. H.R. 72, signed into law Jan 31, authorizes the GAO to obtain all federal agency records needed for the GAO to perform its duties.

      8. Jan 20, Trump signed a Senate bill into law which allowed him to appoint Gen. James Mattis as Sec of Defense. Prior to the bill's passage, federal law prohibited individuals from becoming Sec of Defense until they had been out the armed forces for at least 7 years. Mattis retired from the Corps in 2013.

      9. S.B. 442 in March, Trump signed this bill which authorized the appropriation of funds towards NASA research and exploration.

      10. March 27, Trump signed a resolution which repealed an Obama rule, known as the "blacklisting rule", which prevented the government from working with contractors who had been in violation of labor laws, had engaged in wage theft, or were responsible for workplace safety violations in the last 3 years. This now opens it up for crooked and underhanded contractors to be back in business.

      11. Trump signed a congressional review action which abolished a land management rule aimed at streamlining the process for making federal land use decisions.

      12. Trump authorized the repeal of another Obama term rule which mandated that all states issue ratings for teacher-prep courses within their borders.

      13. Signed an action which abolished federal standards established by Obama that determined which schools were doing well in terms of student's performance and which ones were not. So, we no longer have any standards that our schools have to live up to and we no longer have a means to which we can gauge how our children are doing in school.

      14. Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, which designates March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day and encourages the display of the American flag on that day.

      15. Abolished an Obama rule which limited the number of unemployment applicants states could drug test.

      16. March, Trump signed a bill naming a VA clinic in American Samoa.

      17. Trump signed a Senate resolution approving a memorial to recognize military men and women who had served in support of Operation Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield.

      18. Signed a house resolution that abolished Obama term hunting restrictions on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. The rule was implemented to protect predator species like wolves and bears from being hunted. The rule that Trump repealed also imposed a ban on aerial hunting, live-trapping or baiting predators, and from hunting those predators while they were near their dens or cubs.

      19. April, Trump signed a House joint resolution which eliminated workplace safety regulations implemented by Obama which were aimed at reducing injuries and deaths in the workplace.

      20. Signed a bill into law which provided for the appointment of members to the Office of Compliance's Board of Directors in order to replace members whose terms were expiring in 2017.

      21. Authorized a Congressional Review Act bill which eliminated Obama term rules protecting private citizens internet and browsing data from being used by their internet providers.

      22. On April 13, Trump signed a measure which allows states to withhold Title X family-planning funds from clinics which provide abortion services.

      23. Trump signed a House resolution which eliminated a Labor Dept rule regulating how large cities and municipalities design payroll deduction savings programs.

      24. Signed a bill authorizing a number of programs to enhance weather forecasting and alerts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

      25. In April, signed a bi-partisan measure which extends the duration of the Veterans Choice Program. If done correctly, the measure will likely help provide vets with healthcare and deliver that care at a faster rate than it was before the bill was signed.

      26. Signed a Senate resolution which reappointed Steve Case as a citizen regent of the Board of Regents at the Smithsonian Institution.

      27. Signed a measure which appointed Michael Govan as a Citizen Regent of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution.

      28. Signed a measure which appointed Roger W. Ferguson as a Citizen Regent of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution.

      As you can see, there is not one piece of Major legislation listed here. More than a 1/3 of what Trump has done repeals what Obama put in place and most of the changes benefits big business and hurts either the environment or the public or is of no use whatsoever. Mr. President, if you want to do good, do it. But, don't give us lip service and say you are so much better than everyone else. The only one you benefit with that, is yourself and it doesn't help you much either. Try doing some actual good and you may gain the respect of those that look poorly at you now.

          8 dead, about 30 injured are found in hot semitrailer in Texas in 'horrific' human-trafficking incident

          Good Morning America48 minutes ago

          Eight people were found dead and about 30 others injured inside a brutally-hot semitrailer parked in a Walmart parking lot in San Antonio, Texas in what authorities are calling "a horrific scene."

          Police described the incident as an apparent "human trafficking crime."

          Authorities became aware of the truck overnight after a Walmart employee, who had been approached by someone who had been in the truck asking for water, notified police of the interaction, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said this morning at a press conference, alongside other officials from the city.

          Inside the semitrailer, authorities found eight dead bodies, as well as 20 other people who were in "extremely critical condition or very serious condition," and eight others suffering lesser injuries like heat stroke and dehydration, San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood told the press this morning.

          There were 38 people inside the truck in total, McManus said, and Hood added that at least two of them were "school-age" children.

          The truck had no working air-conditioning system, and temperatures topped 100 degrees Fahrenheit, Hood said. McManus added that the truck's pass lacked access to water.

          "They were very hot to the touch," Hood said of the people found inside.

          The driver of the truck was arrested and could face federal and state charges, according to police. The driver's name was not given at this morning's press conference.

          "We're looking at a human-trafficking crime here," McManus said.

          Meanwhile, surveillance video from the store showed that a number of vehicles entered the parking lot and "picked up lots of folks that were in that trailer that survived the trip," McManus said.

          Some of the people who had been in the truck also ran into the woods, he said. The area was searched, and another attempt will be made in the morning, the officials said.

          The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement has also been called in to help investigate the incident, officials said.

          San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood, who stood alongside McManus at the press conference, said firefighters arrived on the scene at 12:26 a.m. local time, and began pulling the people out of the truck. The injured were taken to different hospitals, some by helicopter, he said.

          Authorities said they still don't know the origin of the truck, or how long it had been parked at the Walmart, and that the search for such details are part of an active investigation currently underway.

          The officials said more details about the victims, including their genders and ages, would be released in a future briefing.

          While he called it a "horrific tragedy," the police chief said the discovery "is not an isolated incident. This happens quite frequently ... fortunately there are people who survived, but this happens all the time,” he said.

          Thomas Homan, acting Director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), weighed in on the incident, calling it a "horrific crime."

          “By any standard, the horrific crime uncovered last night ranks as a stark reminder of why human smuggling networks must be pursued, caught and punished," Homan said in a statement. "These networks have repeatedly shown a reckless disregard for those they smuggle."

          U.S. Attorney Richard L. Durbin Jr. of the Western District of Texas described what emergency workers found as "a horrific scene."

          "All were victims of ruthless human smugglers indifferent to the well-being of their fragile cargo," Durbin said. "The South Texas heat is punishing this time of year. These people were helpless in the hands of their transporters. Imagine their suffering, trapped in a stifling trailer in 100-plus degree heat."

          Watering The Tree Of Liberty With The Blood Of Idiots


              This is a seven year old article which in addition to having a spectacular title discusses Jefferson’s lenient attitude toward rebellion. Jefferson made the statement at a time when the founders themselves were rebels, so he was sympathetic to men with guns raising hell in the name of liberty. He felt a little ignorance and stupidity should be forgiven. Was he right? Should be cut slack to those who see themselves as fighting for freedom? If we say yes, then are we opening the door to all manner of unrest? If we say no are we giving into tyranny?

              The questions intrigue me because at this time in history American citizens have trouble agreeing on what constitutes an act of tyranny. One person sees tyranny as letting children live in poverty, while another person sees tyranny in being forced to pay to feed someone else’s child. Tyranny appears to be in the eye of the beholder.
