Cow-Farting in the Face of Science: Study Reveals Green New Deal Would Have No Effect on Climate Change

Westlake Legal Group yellow-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-pointing-yellow-SCREENSHOT Cow-Farting in the Face of Science: Study Reveals Green New Deal Would Have No Effect on Climate Change Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

 

 

A recent report on what Ben Shapiro called “one of the stupidest documents ever written” reveals Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal would have virtually no effect on planetary climate change (here).

This is surely no surprise, as the plan was — in part — offered by a twenty-something who believes all things can be free to all people without those people also paying for those things to then be free.

Not the most likely source for scientific supremacy.

And then there was this response to her critics:

The American Enterprise Institute’s study assessed the cost as well as the impact of small segments of the GND, which claims the goal of “net zero” American carbon emission by 2050.

I should point out that America comprises a small part of the planet, leaving almost 7.5 billion other people in the world.

I should also point out that that fact alone makes a great deal of even the basic concept of an American Earth-saving change a fair bit idiotic.

But let’s pretend — as part of this narcissist, social media era — that we’re all that matters…

The conclusion of the study was simple:

“It is not to be taken seriously.”

Sounds about right.

What should be taken seriously, however, is the initiative’s apparent aim to take industry back to a time before planes (here). Nevertheless, of course, Alexandria still flies (here), even if her ideas don’t.

From the report:

[N]otwithstanding the assertions from GND proponents that it is an essential policy to confront purportedly adverse climate phenomena, the future temperature impacts of the zero-emissions objective would be barely distinguishable from zero: 0.173°C by 2100, under the maximum Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change parameter (equilibrium climate sensitivity) about the effects of reduced GHG emissions. Under an assumption consistent with the findings reported in the recent peer-reviewed literature, the effect would be 0.083°C by 2100, a policy impact not measurable against normal variation in temperatures. This conclusion is not controversial and suggests strongly that the GND’s real goal is wealth redistribution to favored political interests under the GND social-policy agenda and a dramatic increase in government control of resource allocation more generally.

Brass tacks:

A GND policy would yield no benefits in its central energy, environment, and climate context, but it would impose very large economic costs.

Well there ya go.

The United States Has Many National Security Threats; Uranium Is Not One of Them

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

There have been calls recently from certain groups and individuals, most notably led by two uranium mining companies who filed a petition regarding imposing tariffs and quotas on imported uranium in the name of national security. The U.S. Department of Commerce submitted its report known as the “section 232” probe to the White House on April 15th. While the DOC findings have not been made public, President Donald Trump would be well advised to not heed the call of Ur-Energy Inc., Energy Fuels Inc., and whoever its powerful supporters may be. Contrary to their claims, this is clearly motivated by profit, and not some sort of corporate patriotism and concern for the national security of the United States.

The two solutions that the uranium companies suggestion in their petition are the requirement that domestic uranium comprise 25% of all US uranium, a huge increase from the current numbers, and for federal agencies and utilities to buy U.S. uranium.

“We believe that President Trump will recognize the danger of relying on large and increasing levels uranium imports from Russia, China and our geopolitical rivals” stated Curtis Moore, a spokesman for Energy Fuels.

According to official statistics from 2017 provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, while only 7% of the uranium used for U.S. reactors is domestically produced, Canada and Australia combine for 55% of U.S. uranium purchases, with Russia at only 18%. Two countries with a long history as reliable U.S. allies comprise the majority of the uranium that we count on for our national needs. China does not even register as a statistical blip on the radar. The doomsday scenario painted by alarmists on this issue simply do not reflect the actual statistics.

Conversely, those involved with nuclear power generation are opposed to measures that lead to tariffs and quotas, as the nuclear power industry struggles already, and these increased costs could cause even more reactors to be forced to shut down. Nuclear reactors account for 20% of U.S. electric power, with uranium being 20% of their total costs to operate. The almost certain solution in this instance is that the consumer would have to pay more for these plants to continue to operate. This would negatively impact tens of millions of people financially.

“It is likely that if the tariffs are enacted, it would drive up the price of uranium,” said Shawn Flaherty, a spokesman for the South Texas Project Electric Generating Station, a nuclear plant located in Texas.

If the President were to listen to these suggestions, he would be helping one industry. The rest of the country would suffer by doing immense damage to an energy source which Americans should be concentrating more, and not less resources on.

Independent nuclear experts have reiterated that the US has large existing stockpiles of uranium that it can rely on. As of 2018, there were 574.5 metric tons of highly enriched uranium in our possession according to the International Panel on Fissile Materials. To put that in to perspective, this is what that sort of uranium reserve can afford a nation with a military force as large and powerful as the U.S. In terms of literal national security use, a 2015 Department of Energy study stated that we would need new fuel sources for reactors on naval ships sometime around 2060. This is far from an imminent threat when it comes to making sure that our military forces are more than prepared for the far foreseeable future.

From a political perspective, giving in to this irrational petition could be disastrous. 31 US states rely on nuclear power to some extent, including a number of significant swing states which President Trump won by extremely slim margins. Combined, these states add up to a lot of electoral votes. Two critical states that could be essential to a victory path are Virginia and Pennsylvania, which go well above the national average of 20% nuclear energy, and depend on it for 36% and 34% of their power respectively. President Trump managed to take the electoral college without Virginia last time around, but Pennsylvania is part of the rust belt, and those voters will be necessary to assemble the same winning coalition a second time around. They will likely not respond positively to a significant part of their energy industry being threatened by rising costs related to tariffs.

While this proposal might benefit states like Wyoming, where uranium mining occurs, far more Americans would be negatively affected by this proposal. If President Trump seeks to build a stronger U.S. In terms of its energy policy, then he should simply be encouraging more nuclear energy production, rather than approving a plan to benefit a few at the expense of many. Americans should not be fooled on this issue. The national security risk exists with imposing tariffs and quotas on uranium, not with refusing to do so. This should not be political or ideological in any way. This is common sense based on actual facts and statistics. From an economic, military, and political perspective, this petition is nothing less than unnecessary and utterly irresponsible.

This Week It’s Another No Chance Lunatic Making A Play To Be President.

This weeks victim subject hails from the great state of  Colorado, If you guessed the former governor you are correct, it’s John Hickenlooper. A man who can credibly give Andrew Yang (The man worried about NAZI Robots) a good run for top crazy.

A Boy Who Does Things With And For His Mom

If there is anything that touches a conservative’s heart it’s someone that supports the family and honors family values. What could better exemplify this than taking your mom out for entertainment and the movies when she would otherwise have to be home alone.

The former Democratic governor of Colorado explained how he once took his mother to see the adult film “Deep Throat” with him and a friend.

Hickenlooper recounts the story in a 2016 memoir, the Denver Post reported. But moderator Dana Bash made a point to ask about it during the televised town hall in front a live audience.

As the candidate tells it, according to CNN, the incident happened when an 18-year-old Hickenlooper returned home to see his mother after being away at college. He’d promised a friend he’d see the film in a theatre with him, but Hickenlooper claims they “didn’t know what an X-movie was.”

Hickenlooper asked his mother if she would like to come along, CNN reported.

“She said, ‘I’d love to go’ because she didn’t want to be left alone in the house again. So I took my mother to see ‘Deep Throat,‘” he told the crowd.

—USA Today

Ahhh nothing like a kid that shares porn with his Mom. Hearing this makes me feel like the Grinch at the end of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”

Porn Is Not The Only Place He Wants to See People Screwed Over

Colorado has something every state in America and the Federal Government should have. That’s a Taxpayer Bill Of Rights. In Colorado, the government can’t grow faster than inflation, or population. If the politicians want it to they have to hold a referendum and convince the voters that it should happen. Hickenlooper managed to run a campaign to get that bill of rights and the refunds that were due citizens suspended in 2005.  52-48 were the results, truly a tyranny of the majority allowing the government of Colorado to take what they should never have had in the first place.

Not Only Is He Out To Grab Your Money He’s A Gun Grabber

Not willing to let a tragedy go to waste he moved rapidly after the Sandy Hook shootings to grab people’s guns.

On March 20, 2013, Hickenlooper signed bills HB1224, HB1228 and HB1229. HB1224 created a limit of 15 rounds in magazines that could be bought, sold or transferred within the state. HB1229 requires background checks for any firearm transfer within the state, and HB1228 taxes firearm transfers to recover costs of the background checks from HB1229

Hickenlooper has claimed that, before his gun control extravaganza, most Colorado guns purchased did not involve a background check. This is just not true. The fact is that net registrations remained constant.

An elderly woman in Kentucky was pushed to the ground by an angry abortion customer on April 13th, from which the pro-life advocate received a broken leg and head injuries.

The injured, Donna Durning, has served as a “sidewalk counselor” for 23 years.

The incident was caught on video, and it highlights a growing societal malady — not concerning abortion, but with regard to a sociopathic indifference toward the elderly.

We saw in the aftermath of Parkland — in my opinion — the media encouraging grossly ignorant and inexperienced teens (here) to rage against people to whom they should’ve been saying “Yes ma’am” and “No sir.” Gun issues aside, that disgraceful use of the naive as disposable pawns for political maneuvering struck me as equally disturbing a vignette of modern manners.

And, to me, the video of Ms. Durning being knocked down conjures similar notions.

Watch:

Donna was offering the woman — who’d just exited the abortion clinic — a pamphlet.

She explained to Louisville’s WLKY News:

“I had a little card from Little Way Crisis pregnancy center, and I just offered it to her. And I said, ‘Honey, if you need to talk to anybody, there’s a number on here.’ I was there, as I am five days a week, talking to girls, offering them alternatives to abortion. I saw a lot of hatred in her face and — I’m not exaggerating — I saw the face of Satan in her eyes.”

Violence against those on the Right, of course, is nothing new. Another example is this roundhouse kick incurred by a young pro-lifer in Toronto:

As for Donna Durning’s assailant — who drove away quickly — someone was able to write down her license plate number.

Police happened to be across the street at the time and came over immediately.

A society that doesn’t respect the preciousness of its youngest innocents (here and here) and the seniority of its oldest citizens is a society full of, well…to be blunt: a******s.

For King of the A******s, look no further (WARNING: GRAPHIC):

Best wishes to Ms. Donna Durning as her body mends. And to the police — in hopes that they catch all three culprits above.

Where is David French’s Article on Pete Buttigieg?

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

David French had a lot to say about Evangelical support for Donald Trump in 2016, to include questioning their faith in general. French appointed himself as the judge of who is an appropriate xha candidate for those of Christian faith with this position, how else can someone infer from this? Since French has decided to lecture us all on how our Chritian faith should be reflective at the ballot box, I wonder if French will be in for the long haul.

According to French’s article “an open letter to Trump’s Evangelical defenders” French states “We are not told to rationalize and justify sinful actions to preserve political influence or a popular audience. ” French was at the time chastising Evangelical support for Trump amid accusations that he paid Stormy Daniels “hush money” to hide an affair. French’s consternation with Evangelicals was that they would dismiss sinful behavior, and he championed himself to be the judge of what behavior is acceptable for a Christian voter in the United States, so naturally, I wonder where French’s article is regarding Pete Buttigieg, a homosexual candidate running for President, or his vociferous condemnation of Kamala Harris for having an open affair with her former boss?

I bring these examples up because French felt he was qualified to impose judgement on American Christians, but suddenly seems to have lost his voice when that opinion would be deemed unpopular by the Liberal press. French only chastised Evangelicals because he knew he could take a moral position that the Left would celebrate, and he could condemn his detractors as members of the “Trump cult”. This all came into perspective this week following Franklin Graham’s criticism of Pete Buttigieg and his call for Mayor Pete to repent for his sins, and French responded with his ever popular “but Trump though” style.

French makes the statement that marriage is “between a man and a woman” but can’t seem to bring himself to state that Franklin Graham is correct that homosexuality is indeed a sin according to Christian doctrine. French can call Graham a hypocrite all he wants, but since French appointed himself as the expert on Evangelical voting, does he not have an obligation to speak out against the moral behaviors of Democrats with the same ferocity with which he attacked Trump?

French of course is rudderless when it comes to morality, his morality is as subjective as anyone else in the media. French merely used Evangelicals as the straw man to attack Trump. His thinly veiled criticisms were nothing more than a coping mechanism to convince himself that not supporting Trump was a good decision and that his requirement to double down is also a good decision. French doesn’t actually care about whether Christian morals are reflected in national leadership, he merely cares that he will be able to tell everyone how morally sound he feels about his decisions, no matter what true societal effect they have on our country.

Congressman Threatens Donald Trump Jr. With Prison

=========

Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.

I don’t know about you, but I’m horrified at the normalization of “proving innocence” when it comes to political tribunals. We have seen the Democrats push hard to create a court of public opinion that usurps all actual justice, and nobody seems to be pushing back. Even after the release of the Mueller report, Republicans like Mitt Romney are more concerned about Trump being mean and brash, then the possibility that our government spied for political reasons.

I came across a tweet that should be roundly condemned by every member in Congress, but I wont hold my breath. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) responded to a tweet from Donald Trump jr with “Can’t wait to have you testify under oath about that Trump tower meeting with the Russians about getting dirt on Hillary. (Are you a large or extra large for your orange jumpsuit?)”. This is not a statement anyone who claims to be concerned about government overreach should let slide. In fact, if I were the President’s legal council, this is the exact type of statement I would use if Congress ever went forward with impeachment just to show that the Democrats have made guilt a foregone conclusion regarding a 22-month investigation proving the opposite.

These people are sick, and we need to stop letting them normalize this type of behavior, but I have no faith that the GOP will stand on principle in lieu of taking their marching orders from main stream media.

The Sourest of Grapes!

I suppose that The Washington Post would give OpEd space to any major party losing presidential candidate . . . except perhaps Donald Trump, if he had lost in 2016. But let’s face facts: to Hillary Clinton, the only serious crime Mr Trump and his campaign committed was not letting her become president!

Mueller documented a serious crime against all Americans. Here’s how to respond.

By Hillary Clinton | April 24, 2019 | 4:44 PM

Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people.

The debate about how to respond to Russia’s “sweeping and systematic” attack — and how to hold President Trump accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law — has been reduced to a false choice: immediate impeachment or nothing. History suggests there’s a better way to think about the choices ahead.

Obviously, this is personal for me, and some may say I’m not the right messenger. But my perspective is not just that of a former candidate and target of the Russian plot. I am also a former senator and secretary of state who served during much of Vladi­mir Putin’s ascent, sat across the table from him and knows firsthand that he seeks to weaken our country.

I’m pretty sure that if I were to search for Mrs Clinton’s condemnation of President Barack Obama’s interference to try to stop Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s 2015 re-election bid, I’d fail to find it.¹ And I’d guess that she’d never say anything bad about her own beloved husband’s attempt, in 1996, to help Shimon Peres defeat Mr Netanyahu. And, as Ishaan Tharoor noted in the Post on October 13, 2016, Russia has “also bristled at perceived U.S. meddling in the politics of countries on Russia’s borders, most notably in Ukraine.”

Mrs Clinton writes in moderate, lawyerly terms, mentioning her (small) role in the Watergate hearings and commending the House Judiciary Committee’s work:

During Watergate, the House Judiciary Committee also began a formal impeachment inquiry that was led by John Doar, a widely respected former Justice Department official and hero of the civil rights struggle. He was determined to run a process that the public and history would judge as fair and thorough, no matter the outcome. If today’s House proceeds to an impeachment inquiry, I hope it will find someone as distinguished and principled as Doar to lead it.

Mrs Clinton also complained that President Trump was not taking any actions to protect the United States from similar interference in our elections in 2020 and beyond, though she gave us no specifics on what she believes should be done.

The purported Russian interference, as documented in the Mueller Report, primarily took two forms.

  1. Russia’s Internet Research Agency made serious spying attempts, and succeeding in hacking into the emails of John Podesta, Mrs Clinton’s campaign chairman, and the Democratic National Committee. The IRA then gave the stolen emails to WikiLeaks, which published them.
  2. Various Russian actors created spoof identities and posted things aimed at criticizing Mrs Clinton and propping up Mr Trump on social media.

Espionage is, of course, already against the law, and the FBI does what it can to prevent it, but naturally they don’t succeed in every instance. The targets were not the United States government — though the Russians and everybody else, friend and foe alike, are always trying to get more information — by private organizations. How is it, I have to ask, the government’s duty to protect private campaign and party organizations from foreign espionage?

As Secretary of State for four years, Mrs Clinton might not have known the details, but she was very much aware that we were spying on the Russians, and everybody else; the United States was caught spying on our ally Germany, and had intercepted Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cell phone conversations, an action which President Obama was reported to have approved personally, during the time Mrs Clinton was his Secretary of State. That Mrs Clinton didn’t like being spied on is obvious; it’s also monstrously hypocritical.

How, I would like to ask, can foreign agents be prevented from spoofing identities and posting on our social media? Russia and China and other authoritarian regimes could prevent us from doing so to them, because they don’t have the freedom of speech, and o have tightly controlled media. How the United States could so so, without violating our own laws and culture and Constitution, seems a lot more problematic.

But, as Mrs Clinton concluded, a tiny bit of her still seething rage sneaked out:

Of all the lessons from our history, the one that’s most important may be that each of us has a vital role to play as citizens. A crime was committed against all Americans, and all Americans should demand action and accountability. Our founders envisioned the danger we face today and designed a system to meet it. Now it’s up to us to prove the wisdom of our Constitution, the resilience of our democracy and the strength of our nation.

What crime was committed against all Americans? What the Russians did, assuming all of the claims in the Mueller Report are accurate, was not to spread false information about Mrs Clinton and her campaign but to tell the truth about it. The Democrats did not want the American people to know that then-CNN contributor Donna Brazile gave Mrs Clinton advance notice on primary debate questions, and the Democrats certainly didn’t want it known that Jennifer Palmieri felt the need to email Mr Podesta and tell him to “sober (Mrs Clinton) up some.”

If the woman who was asking people to vote for her to become President of the United States needed to be sobered up between 1:55 and 4:31 in the afternoon, isn’t that something the American people should know?

Well, it’s the kind of thing the Democrats certainly didn’t want us to know! And WikiLeaks publishing it led to what Mrs Clinton saw as the greatest crime of all: her not being elected President.

Amid Charges of Sexual Abuse, the Boy Scouts Propose the Creation of a National Sex Abuse Directory for Youth Organizations

I’d like to start this article with, “The Boy Scouts have some good ideas.” But I can’t, because the lightbulbs going off in their heads over the last little while haven’t been particularly bright. The’ve moreso been a dim, AOC-Green-New-Deal kinda luminescent.

Hence, Brandon Morse’s chart-topping article from December, “The Boy Scouts Filing Bankruptcy After A String Of ‘Woke’ Decisions Caused It To Go Broke.”

Among the dumb: letting girls be Boy Scouts.

But this recent turn may actually be a somewhat solid move.

The BSA have proposed the creation of a suspected sex offender registry for groups dealing with kids (I’d say remove the “suspected” — aka unproven — part).

They made the recommendation as part of apparent damage control Tuesday, in the aftermath of allegations that 200 Boy Scout leaders have sexually abused minors (I reference my previous statement about lightbulbs). The firms of Greg Gianforcaro and Jeff Anderson & Associates alleged that the Boy Scouts’ “perversion files” — which contained secretive allegations of sexual about — actually named the accused leaders.

BSA Chief Strategy Officer Erin Eisner provided a statement to The Daily Caller (listed in part here):

We fully support and advocate for the creation of a national registry overseen by a governmental entity, similar to the national sex offender registry, of those who are suspected of child abuse or inappropriate behavior with a child, and thus allowing all youth-serving organizations to share and access such information.

We are eager to share the information contained in our database with other youth serving organizations.

Our vision, and one shared by others working hard in this space to protect youth, is that all youth serving organizations would be required to track and document those adults who have harmed children or have been suspected of harming children and report this information into a national registry.

According to Erin, the new registry would be analogous to the DOJ’s National Sex Offender public website.

Oh — and also, the Boy Scouts said they never knew about anyone being accused of sexual abuse.

Bold claim?

Attorney Jeff Anderson called Hogwash:

“All the pledges and promises from the Boy Scouts of America fall short. The reality is, they have to identify the names of thousands of offenders from their secret files. The Boy Scouts need to come clean and inform the communities who these people are, what they did, and where they are today.”

I could say more here, but I’d rather hear from you — are any of you former Scouts? I’m not. What do you think of the organization? Its changes? The directory? For those of you whose lives were made better (or worse) by the Boy Scouts of America, I’d love to know your thoughts. I look forward to reading them, in the Comments section below.

Megan McCain is no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s not a surprise — it runs in the family.

The senator and the President had a history of conflict, and Meghan’s railed against the Big Chees on The View relentlessly (holy cow, see here).

And when Meghan rails, she rails really big (here).

Now the McCain family is staking their anti-Trump claim for 2020 with an endorsement of former vice president — and gays-are-security-risks (here) senator — Joe “the Mitts” Biden.

Speaking of, here’s a fantastic video for ya:



Back to the McCains: As per the Washington Examiner, they’re preparing to say “bon voyage” to their erstwhile-beloved GOP. Preferring Touchy Joe, for Meghan and clan, those letters now stand for Grope Other Party:

In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him even after his death last August at age 81, the McCain family is preparing to break with the Republican Party. McCain represented the party in Congress for 35 years and was chosen as its presidential nominee in 2008, losing to Barack Obama.

Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on The View, will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.

That’s considerable news, though not necessarily a shock. The family is determined to take out Trump:

A former McCain campaign official with close ties to the family said support for Biden was a given, but they needed to calculate how they could best help the former vice president. Both Cindy and Meghan McCain remain Republicans, and one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good. “It’s undeniable that Joe Biden and the McCain family have a very close, personal relationship. It’s about what’s good for him [Biden].”

JB’s expected to announce a vie for the positioning of his butt into the most powerful desk chair in the world on Thursday. And Sen. McCain’s widow is ready and waitin’, Jack:

Another McCain family source said there had been discussions with the Bidens about his 2020 run, which is expected to be announced on Thursday. “They talk regularly and have been supportive of his run,” the source said. “The question is going to be timing and coordinating with the Biden campaign. There are a lot of moving parts there and [Biden’s campaign is] not necessarily organized. I wouldn’t expect a formal family endorsement because some of McCain’s family is still in the military, but I do expect Cindy to speak out at some point.”

The source said they expected Meghan McCain to speak out in favor of Biden should he get the nomination, but a Cindy McCain endorsement could come sooner.

2020’s getting interesting, folks. But it remains to be seen whether the Left can let go of Mueller mania and focus on winning. It’s anyone’s guess, but I’m betting on No. If they could’ve let it go, they already would’ve (Meghan seems to think so, too — here).

But in the interest of full disclosure, I’ve been wrong before — I thought rock stars would always wear spandex.

What do you think?

A college student in New York is looking to sue a man who — in his capacity as her Uber driver — refused to take her to get an abortion.

For his unwillingness to lend a hand, the rideshare giant gave him his walking (or driving?) papers.

She recounted the horrific experience (her Uber ride, not the abortion) on Reddit earlier in the month:

“I’m in college in upstate NY and I don’t have a car on campus because it’s expensive. I’m 20 years old and I found out I was pregnant and subsequently decided I wanted an abortion because I’m in no position to care for a child.”

Problemo.

“There is a Planned Parenthood very close to my university, but the earliest appointment they had was a week away, and I found a clinic an hour away that had availability in three days, so I opted to go there instead.”

But the dadgum driver was nosey:

“Because I don’t have a car, I rely on Uber and lyft to get me places. My appointment was at 11:30am so at 9:58am my Uber arrived and he immediately seemed uncomfortable. After about five minutes in the car, he asked, ‘Are we going to a planned parenthood?’ I said no (because we weren’t), but it set off alarm bells that he would even ask that. The destination I put in was just the name of the doctor and the address of the clinic, there was nothing that would suggest it was an abortion clinic. After a few more minutes he asked, ‘Are we going to an abortion clinic?’”

The driver had been there, done that. He tried to help:

“I was shocked; I had no idea what to say, so I just remained quiet. He then said, ‘I know it’s none of my business, but…’ and proceeded to mention something about his wife being pregnant, how awful the procedure was (and proceeded to explain it in graphic detail), and that ‘there is so much they don’t tell you.’ He then said, ‘You’re going to regret this decision for the rest of your life’ and that I was making a mistake.”

This dude was about to make her flat-out cry:

“It took all of my strength not to start crying but I managed to keep it together by looking out the window and avoiding his gaze.”

The driver’s conscience wouldn’t allow him to be a part of it:

“After we were about halfway to the destination, he suddenly pulls over with no warning. There was a gas station and a closed antiques store, and around us was farmland and forest. He said, ‘I’m sorry, but I can’t take you the rest of the way. I can take you back to [my city], but you won’t be able to find another Uber out here.’”

Okay, time to cry:

“I got out of the car and immediately started crying. I called my parents each three times but they didn’t pick up.”

Fortunately for her, chivalry was not dead:

“Then I called my boyfriend and he picked up right away. He managed to calm me down and told me to let the clinic know what was happening and to call some local cab companies.”

The driver waited around for 10-15 minutes and offered again to take her back to the city. Shortly after he left, a cab picked her up and took her to the abortion clinic, an hour late.

The young lady reported the Uber driver to the…COPS??

“I reported the driver to Uber and the next day I filed a police report with my city’s police department. Someone on Uber’s team got in touch with me after I told them about the police report and called me to get a detailed account of what happened. I told them everything on a call that was recorded, and the rep mentioned that it appeared the driver had taken a less direct route to get me to my destination prior to dropping me off.”

Uber let the girl know the driver had been banned from ever driving for them again.

Now she’s ready to move on to the suing phase:

“[I]’d like to pursue further legal action against the driver if at all possible. Do I have a case? What should my next steps be? I reached out to a law firm and a few legal aid societies but nothing has happened. I’m not sure what I should do now.”

Yeah; that guy should definitely be sued (?).

In a normal era, the girl would appreciate the man’s principle and his attempt to help her, even if she disagreed. She’d respect his effort keep her from making a mistake with which he was familiar. But this isn’t that era.

There was the Stone Age; the Ice Age, the Middle Ages; we’re now living — it seems to me — in the Moron Age.
