We originate out of California, and we have some of the dumbest legislators in the country, and I don’t know if that is a tell tale sign of what the voters are thinking. Let’s play a clip. What the heck is this woman arguing about?
When you hear really about the bill it is really confusing. This woman is just mad at b\men because apparently, none of us have respect for women. So let me tell you about this bill. This is bill number 623, to continue I polite program to allow physicians assistants to provide first trimester abortions. Not weather an abortion could be had or not, just who could perform the procedure. If we are going to allow abortions, we should not let a physicians assistant do the procedure. And this women is arguing that the history of men is oppressive. It is this politically correct crap again. If it is uncomfortable or distasteful, we are not allowed to do it. this stuff has got to stop, it is just crazy. Before we go we have to hear another clip, this lady has such a way with numbers. She talks about the unemployment numbers if we continue the way we are going.
