The librarian has commented on the local newspaper’s article defending giving out the books to 9 year olds. Her statement is as follows:
It’s hard not to defend my name on these sites, but smart people are telling me to let my supporters deal with it. Thank you American Library Association Office For Intellectual Freedom, National Coalition Against Censorship, Jim The Union Guy, and my intelligent and calm friends, neighbors and young patrons.
No reporter has attempted to contact me (my Rainier # has been listed for 11 years and my email is the school district).
I abide by The Library Code Of Ethics. Look it up.

Killing your child is NOT a responsible parenting decision. In fact it’s not parenting at all.

Dalton92. There are a lot of the younger generation (18-25) that are really dumb. Not all, but overwhelmingly most. I would say it is a lot of my generations and those just in front of it’s fault. I graduated in 94. I wouldn’t feel to bad, there are quite a few in my generation too. Society is not getting smarter. Not by a long shot.

As per how things are run now……..this guy should be able to live there at the white house and bring in his entire family and the taxpayers should be forced to pay for his food, electricity, and a whole host of other benes because that’s the compassionate thing to do. Right? Right? Maybe Glenn could send his family some teddy bears and soccer balls.

The retired minister from the Longview WA Presbyterian church here often writes bash articles to the local newspapers letters to the editors about conservatives and about how people are causing global warming. If you look at their facebook page, they are outright advertising about how they are showing Democratic propaganda films at their church. I wonder how they reconcile that with the whole baby murdering thing.
As a former PCUSA member I can tell you that the denomination now bears no resemblance to the denomination in which I was raised. PCUSA now is nothing more than the religion arm of the Democrat party. Recent actions at the General Assembly in Detroit show them to be a pro-infanticide, anti-Semitic church in which no sexual practices are not condoned.

Evolution, lol. So sad. It is amazing just how fast all credibility goes out the window with that one word.
A country or organization that is divided cannot endure.
It will eat itself from the inside out.

So what do they think happens to the people making $15/hr now? They ignore the other side of the equation. Cost of living will rise and now will include the people making $15/hr as well as the many who will be unemployed. Poverty levels will rise. Race to the bottom at it’s finest.
Unintended consequences ,help a butterfly out of it's cocoon and it dies.
It will really suck for the people making 15 as you said when they DONT get a raise because the others got their money
Higher wages exercise a multiplier effect. Working people spend their money. The money they spend stimulates the local economy; being so stimulated, the local economy produces more, hires more and, yes, exacts a higher basic cost in goods. But the increase in costs need not necessarily be out of control, and an increase in wages needn't be either. It is absurd and alarmist to claim an increase in wages leads to rising poverty levels. Has such a thing ever been true? No. Falling prices, as a result in too few dollars chasing too many goods, lead to rising poverty levels. Everyone posting on this story keeps referring to "Econ 101" principles to justify their crazed responses to this story. Nothing in an undergraduate level economics course would confirm all the dire predictions being screamed about here.

And a call from the president.

This means little coming from the man who wants to slam open the floodgates and lay out the welcome mat to illegal invaders.
That's not his position and it never was. He proposed stringent hoops to go through including paying taxes for years and then only then a possibility to get in line like the rest of the illegals, BEHIND those that have applied LEGALLY.
The only problem with it is that it will not be enforced by illegals called democrat, who should be traded 1:1 for more immigrants.
The truth is that most illegals have nothing to do with democrats other than propaganda they may have been pumped with. It is unnatural for regular human beings to come here and identify with anything democrat. It's one of the great scams of our time. It's one of those alinsky 'perception is reality' ploys.

Too late Pat. You make yourself a joke the minute you think you know better than the Bible.
AMEN! Who would dare question the arcane wisdom of our supreme handbook?
Take for example, Corinthians 14:34 or Timothy 2:11 or Timothy 2:12
No honest, true person would ever think THEY have the ARROGANT hate ridden right to believe their ideals and norms have evolved past the word of the Lord. That's why I tell my wife, daughters, and grandmother to STFU whenever they open their heathen sacrilegious mouths.
Let me make this perfectly clear, women: Know. Your. Role.
The earth is billions of years old.
The bible says nothing of how old the earth is.
Anyone who believes the earth is only 6000 years old is basically a devil worshiper.

Yes. I have several Russian friends who don’t understand why Americans are going this path. It scares them. They tell me, “Very bad times ahead for America” with strong Russian accent. It’s sad when you realize Russian immigrants are far more patriotic than many Americans.
We don't hear enough from them. We need their voices heard thoughtful and frightened, loud and urgent. The voice of experience would be valuable, and we should take advantage of it wherever we can.

Nothing will happen to him. Prison rape does not occur anymore. There are plenty of individuals more than willing to give it up. As for the violence against them, the prisons are a complete surveillance state. Even blood alley at Walla Walla has been turned pedo friendly.

2 Timothy 4:3
Of course he turned his back on Christianity. It wasn’t what he wanted to hear. He loves sodomy more than his creator. More power to him. He has chosen to live a sad unhappy life.
