George Weigel says that the real winner in the last election was…
The Woodstock-er Flower Power, Free Love-Hippy-Hypocrites are having children and presidents of their own.
Love Hypocrites? Yep.
If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with!
Sex sells as nothing else. But only sex. Nothing else.
Your Business Blogger(R) was at a local high school sporting event in the stands next to another doting dad who truly cares about his daughter. (Note: this story is essentially true; some details have been changed for obvious reasons.)
I know about the daughter. A lot. Too much.
Charmaine and I regularly monitor The (teenaged) Dreamer’s and the Dude’s Facebook friends. And saw pictures of someone else’s daughter that would not get her hired in any company I advise.
I gently suggest to the Dad that Facebook is a good source to learn if teenage daughters are well, “active.”
He says. “I don’t want to know.” I am perplexed.
He smiles, “They are just going to do it anyway.”
He didn’t want to know about his daughter’s (potential) amorous adventurous.
But he might get concerned…
If he learned that she might be smoking.
And without a doubt, if her football friends were drinking and driving.
Sex: OK anytime.
Smoking: BAD anytime.
Drinking: BAD while driving.
Woodstock-ers don’t mind if their daughter’s are sexually active, as long as they really care about their health: no smoking and don’t drive while drunk.
(I’m still waiting for the public school system Safe Smoking Class; the Safe Drinking Class.)
The contraceptive pill known as Plan B soon will be made available without prescription to minors without parental consent . . .
This is Woodstock-ing your children.
NATASHA SINGER writes in The New York Times, Contraception Pill Strictures Are Eased by a Judge
A federal judge ordered the Food and Drug Administration on Monday to make the Plan B morning-after birth control pill available without prescription to women as young as 17….
The agency has 30 days to comply with the order, in which the judge also urged the agency to consider removing all restrictions on over-the-counter sales of Plan B. The drug consists of two pills that prevent conception if taken within 72 hours of sexual intercourse…
Not until 2006 did the F.D.A. rule, saying that the drug could be sold without a prescription only to women over 18. In order to enforce the age restriction, the agency also ordered that Plan B be stocked behind pharmacy counters, in contrast to other over-the-counter contraceptives like condoms.
Americans United for Life Condemns Ruling Increasing Minors’ Access to Dangerous Plan B
Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York unilaterally determined in Tummino v. Torti that 17 year old girls should have unrestricted, over-the-counter access to Plan B or so-called “emergency contraception.” In doing so, the court overruled a previous decision by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requiring that minors first obtain a valid prescription for the potentially dangerous drug.
The Obama Administration is widely expected to welcome the ruling and not pursue a meaningful appeal in the case.
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President & CEO of Americans United for Life said, “Given legitimate concerns about the safety of self-medicating with Plan B, it is incomprehensible that we would allow a minor to walk into any pharmacy and obtain this drug without medical oversight or parental involvement.”
So where did this new nonsense originate?
Sam & Dave sum it up,
I was educated at Woodstock
When I start lovin’, oh, I just can’t stop
Join Fight FOCA Maybe the Obama administration is right:
Kids are going to do it anyway:
They just can’t stop.
But they better not have a cigarette after…
The Woodstock-administration is working to promote prescription pills to underage girls.
Abortions are coming next.
Stop the Woodstock-ers.
Thank you (foot)notes:
Some versions From the Blues Brothers have,
I was educated from good stock
When I start lovin’ I just cant stop
The Woodstock-ers have created the party of death.
Alert Readers know that Your Business Blogger(R) spent a number of decades in pharmaceutical and medical device companies and had to work with FDA requirements.
The FDA has its reasoning upside down, backwards, wrong.
That is to say: They are making political — not a medical — decision.
The normal contraceptive Pill requires a prescription from a licensed physician.
Plan B IS the Pill, except much, much stronger.
Now Plan B will require no prescription, but its stronger dose twin does?
This is lunacy. This is anti-science. This is anti-health.
This is the new administration.
Tuesday, By Susan Jones, Senior Editor
Charmaine and Jonah at National Review both had speaking gigs at major schools.
Q: Who Knew?
A: No one.
Charmaine lecturing on campus
I drove the wife and The Dreamer, The Dude, The Diva, The Dancer, and Baby Boo* down to Mr. Jefferson’s University so Charmaine could speak on women in leadership at Darden, UVa’s business school. The first thing we see are well-armed police.
Uniformed dark blue. Unsmiling.
I ask the sergeant about his job and the small gaggle of 150 women, “Crowd control?”
He looks me over. I’m holding a four-year old’s hand: I am not a threat.
I am the conservative.
The cop’s face moves a millimeter into what passes for a smile. His head shakes a millimeter into what passes for no.
His eyes return to the assembly. He’s looking for trouble.
I speak to one of the organizers about the number of attendees, the marketing of the event…the security. (Your Business Blogger(R) cares about such things; teaching Business at the Northern Virginia Community College. Where James Carville also taught.)
The event planner whispers, “We didn’t publicize the event…we weren’t sure who would come…”
Even though Charmaine spent ten years at UVA, earned her Ph.D. and taught (Politics and the Family) the organizers were fearful. Charmaine, a woman and a conservative who worked for Huckabee, Pro-Life, now a president and CEO of a law firm, might cause two horrors on the Campus Grounds:
1) A violent campus protest, or, worse,
2) A good conservative turn out.
The police were out in force to keep pie throwing liberals away from the conservative speaker.
Or keep a woman from making a citizen’s arrest.
and wife Jessica Gavora
The police are on the side of law and order…so far.
We have been lucky with Charmaine’s public speaking in academia.
In a fashion, conservative Jonah has been lucky too. His speaking event at Emory was not publicized on the school website. He was not assaulted. He was ignored.
When he would rather have had a riot, I guess. (We guys like to think like this…)
A riot of ideas, please. But conservatives cannot get real “balance” in the academic setting. Goldberg writes,
It’s particularly odd because the majority of the time I speak on a college campus — even when debating a liberal — I’m told that I’m the first conservative they’ve had there for a while and that I was brought in for “balance.”
You’d think if that were the case, the various administrations would at least want some credit for providing equal time.
Even though, even a brief perusal of almost any college or university’s events calendar will quickly show that they could have the entire masthead of National Review speak month after month and it still wouldn’t equal balance…but the idea that simply inviting one or two objectively conservative speakers every couple years provides ideological balance is just absurd.
The joke is even bigger when you discover as I have at numerous schools that many professors tell their students they shouldn’t go hear conservative speakers.
Jonah Goldberg gets this right: students should get both sides of any debate.
That would be, well, Fair and Balanced…
* Alert Readers know our five children are also known as the Penta-Posse.
Charmaine will be debating Kim Gandy from NOW on Palin’s speech.
Here’s what happen the last time Charmaine and Kim “shared” a microphone,
Even Rush Limbaugh noted the altercation. Back on November 5, 2005, Your Business Blogger(R) wrote about the press conference,
Please forgive the-day-in-the-life post from Your Business Blogger[R]. I was in the middle of drafting an article on the glass ceiling for women. And got a first person account instead.
Today I thought I’d give the little woman a respite from the laundry and the kids. “Go play in the Nation’s Capital,” I said to Charmaine this morning. “Have a fun lunch with the girls!”
Then I hear Rush talk about a smack down at the Supreme Court and see a photo of Charmaine in her red power suit at Rush Limbaugh EIB Extra… .
She had Kim Gandy in a half-nelson.
I have sat through a number of cantankerous board meetings. Adversarial budget negotiations. Hardball sales presentations. Terminations. Giving and getting.
But no one actually got spanked.
I thought the gathering of girls today would be a powder puff tea party of cooperation. Sweetness and light and reason and ‘Please’ and ‘Thankyou.’
I was wrong. No one fights like a woman on a mission.
I’ll have to rewrite the article.
(It is a joy to marry over your head.)
Hit time is 6:30 Eastern. MSNBC Race for the Whitehouse w/David Gregory — opposite Kim Gandy from NOW — Segment on Palin and last night’s speech
They’re taping in Rice Park (across the street from the Xcel center)
Please tune in and let us know what you think. Watch the fight begin in ernest.
In the Yoest household kitchen Answer: She’s not married to Todd Palin.
On CNN yesterday Charmaine reinforced the point that women can succeed in any position at any level, if she has a deep support system. Beyond the government safety net.
The best support system is to marry a guy who will embrace the family mission, the family business. A husband who is not distracted by interns at 2am.
And will lift up his wife when her time comes…
And I’m not just talking pregnancy.
About half of all women who enter into a Ph.D. program do not finish. When Charmaine was working on her disertation at the University of Virginia, Your Business Blogger(R), MBA, and Charmaine’s parents, Mom, Ph.D; Dad, Ph.D; Brother, Ph.D. and Penta-Posse gathered together and strategized on the path to make sure that Charmaine was in the half that got ‘hooded.’
The extended family decided to invest in Charmaine.
Money was key but not the entire issue. Wisdom and logistical support were the real needs of house hold and five little ones.
Extended family and a hubby who will sacrifice for the family mission is the solution to whatever success the family, the mother, the mission will achieve.
Todd Palin is my kind of guy. Like me, he married way over his head and is not afraid to let the world know.
We are both married to CEO’s who advance the family mission. Our extended families have made sacrifices and investments to advance very talented women, very talented wives.
If more feminists had devoted husbands, maybe they’d enjoy more success. As well as the other benefits of marital bliss (re Five Children…).
And this is the real reason the liberals hate Sarah Palin. She is normal.
Thank you (foot)notes:
Fish on a bicycle by Ray Troll Feminist icon Gloria Steinem can be blamed for a lot problems these days in verbiage and communication in the battle of men vs women.
But not this phrase.
“In your note on my new and happy marital partnership with David Bale, you credit me with the witticism A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. In fact, Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney.”
Credit should go to Irina Dunn, graffiti artist and Australian Senator from the Nuclear Disarmament Party.
