Quick Hits

It’s been awhile since we did a “Quick Hits” post, and today is just as good as any.

Remember that “new civility” that Obama keeps pushing for everyone but Democrats to follow? Well, Maxine Waters got the message and decided to take the idea of “civil discourse” to a new level:

“I’m not afraid of anybody,” said Waters. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell.”

Sorry Maxine, we visited hell and didn’t like the way you were running the place.

At the time of her remarks, Waters was taking part in a meeting with constituents on unemployment in California.

The event occurred a day after new statistics were released showing that California’s jobless rate last month went up to 12%, from 11.8%. California now has the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation, trailing only Nevada at 12.9%, and its jobless rate is well above the U.S. average of 9.1%.

According to the Employment Development Department, California employers added just 4,500 new jobs last month, a steep drop from the revised 30,400 jobs added in June.

You would think that after all these years that Waters would realize the basics of job creation.

Congress is not the solution.

Congress is the problem.

Good news for parents and educators in Santa Monica and Malibu!

The school board of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District has solved all their educational issues and are going to vote this week on whether to ban chocolate milk from schools.

This follows the Los Angeles Unified School District’s ban on chocolate flavored drinks which accomplished nothing other than banning drinks kids liked.

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District is scheduled to vote this week on whether students need sugar to make healthy choices. Of course, the vote won’t be structured that way, but sugar is what’s at stake. The school board will vote on whether the district should eliminate sugared milk from its lunchtime offerings.

Got that?

We “teach” kids to make “healthy choices” by eliminating any choice that someone feels is not healthy! That way, as kids grow up, they will know that any choice they make is government approved and good for them.

That is the role of government, right? To make choices for us?
