A lesson, from an 80 year old man!!!I talked with a man today, an 80+ year old man. I asked him if there was anything I could get him while this Coronavirus scare was gripping America.

He simply smiled, looked away and said: "Let me tell you what I need;

I need to believe, at some point, this country my generation fought for... that we handed safely to our children and their children... I need to know this generation will quit being a bunch of sissies...that they respect what they've been given...that they've earned what others sacrificed for."

I wasn't sure where the conversation was going or if it was going anywhere at all so, I sat there, quietly observing.

"You know, I was a little boy during WWII. Those were scary days. We didn't know if we were going to be speaking English, German or Japanese at the end of the war. There was no certainty, no guarantees like Americans enjoy today. And no home went without sacrifice or loss.

Every house, up and down every street, had someone in harm's way. Maybe their Daddy was a soldier, maybe their son was a sailor, maybe it was an uncle. Sometimes it was the whole damn family...fathers, sons, uncles.

Having someone, you love, sent off to war...it wasn't less frightening than it is today. It was scary as Hell. If anything, it was more frightening. We didn't have battle front news. We didn't have email or cellphones. You sent them away and you hoped...you prayed. You may not hear from them for months, if ever.

Sometimes a mother was getting her son's letters the same day Dad was comforting her over their child's death. And we sacrificed. You couldn't buy things. Everything was rationed. You were only allowed so much milk per month, only so much bread, toilet paper. EVERYTHING was restricted for the war effort.

And what you weren't using, what you didn't need, things you threw away, they were saved and sorted for the war effort. My generation was the original recycling movement in America.

And we had viruses back then...serious viruses. Things like polio, measles, and such. It was nothing to walk to school and pass a house or two that was quarantined. We didn't shut down our schools. We didn't shut down our cities. We carried on, without masks, without hand sanitizer.

And do you know what? We persevered. We overcame. We didn't attack our President, we came together. We rallied around the flag for the war. Thick or thin, we were in it to win.

We would lose more boys in an hour of combat than we lose in entire wars today."

He slowly looked away again. Maybe I saw a small tear in the corner of his eye. Then he continued:

"Today's kids don't know sacrifice. They think a sacrifice is not having coverage on their phone while they freely drive across the country. Today's kids are selfish and spoiled. In my generation, we looked out for our elders. We helped out with single moms who's husbands were either at war or dead from war. Today's kids rush the store, buying everything they can...no concern for anyone but themselves.

It's shameful the way Americans behave these days. None of them deserve the sacrifices their great-granddads made. So, no I don't need anything. I appreciate your offer but, I know I've been through worse things than this virus.

But maybe I should be asking you, what can I do to help you? Do you have enough pop to get through this, enough steak? Will you be able to survive with 113 channels on your tv?"

I smiled, fighting back a tear of my own...now humbled by a man in his 80's. All I could do was thank him for the history lesson, leave my number for emergency and leave with my ego firmly tucked in my rear.

I talked to a man today. A real man. An American man from an era long gone and forgotten. We will never understand their sacrifices. We will never fully earn their sacrifices. But we should work harder to learn about them..learn from them...to respect them.

1st hour discussion today, Tuesday 2-25-20; MIRS NEWS

Supreme Court Agrees To Hear Whether Religious Beliefs Trump Gay Rights In Foster Care

The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether foster care agencies can use their religious beliefs to decline to work with same-sex couples seeking to foster or adopt.

The court agreed today to hear Fulton v. Philadelphia, Case No. 19-123, which might have an effect on similar cases in Michigan where religious-based adoption agencies continue to challenge a proposed federal settlement that prevented faith-based adoption agencies in the state from declining to work with same-sex couples. (See "Judge Halts Same-Sex Adoption Settlement," 9/26/19; "Another Catholic Charity Files Challenge To AG's Adoption Settlement," 4/6/19; and "New Lawsuit Challenges Same-Sex Adoption Settlement," 4/15/19.)

"Whatever the court does, it is likely to have some effect on the controversies we've had in Michigan," Samuel BAGENSTOS, a civil rights attorney and University of Michigan law professor, told MIRS today.

According to court documents, the city of Philadelphia ended its contract with Catholic Social Services because church officials declined to consider same-sex couples because it violates their sincere religious beliefs. The city argued it requires its contractors to abide by the city's civil rights provisions, including a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation.

"Just as no LGBT couples are prevented from marrying because a particular church does not perform same-sex weddings, no LGBT couples are prevented from fostering because a particular church cannot provide an endorsement," plaintiffs' attorneys said in their July petition to the court. "Yet, many churches will be prevented from exercising religion by caring for at-risk children, all due to a disagreement with the government about marriage."

Bagenstos said one of the questions presented in Fulton is whether the government violates the First Amendment if it excludes religious agencies from social services for following its religious beliefs. An affirmative response could have an effect in Michigan, he noted.

The court also could decide to reverse its 1990 opinion, written by the late conservative icon Antonin SCALIA, in Employment Division v. Smith, which held the state could deny unemployment benefits to a person fired for violating a state prohibition on the use of peyote, even though the use of the drug was part of a religious ritual.

Peyote is a powerful hallucinogen used in religious ceremonies in the Native American Church.

While Congress passed legislation that reversed the decision in cases involving the federal government, the Smith decision remains the law in state cases and many people on the Religious Right have pushed to overrule the controversial decision.

However, Bagenstos noted, Chief Justice John ROBERTS Jr.'s court has been "very solicitous of the interest of religious organizations that sought exemptions from civil rights law and other mandates designed to promote social welfare objectives."

The replacement of President Ronald Reagan appointees, Scalia and Justice Anthony KENNEDY, by President Donald TRUMP's nominees, Justices Neil GORSUCH and Brett KAVANAUGH, respectively, has led to an expectation that the court is moving even further to the right on these religious liberty issues.

"It has been a major priority of the Religious Right for a long time to try to get more religious exemptions from general laws, and particularly from anti-discrimination laws and from anti-discrimination like provisions, like a rule that says you can't participate in our adoption services if you discriminate against same-sex couples," Bagenstos said.

"I think a lot of people would be putting down bets today that the folks who are seeking religious exemption would win here, but I don't know about that," he added. "That seems plausible to me, but I think the real question is how broadly the win will extend and what exactly is the court going to say that is really going to make all the difference in these cases."

Your Defending Fathers

Why is Nancy Pelosi wanting to control the trial of impeachment in the U.S. Senate???Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., is involved in oil importing from Ukraine and his company, Viscoil, is under investigation for securities fraud.

In 2015, Pelosi used the Air Force to fly her entire family to Ukraine at a cost of over $185,000.

Nancy Pelosi’s legislative aide, Ivanna Voronovych, is from Ukraine and is connected to the Ukrainian Embassy, the Ukrainian military, the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian party life. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are also both connected to a Ukrainian arms dealer.

We also know that Ukraine was involved in helping the Clinton campaign fabricate evidence against Paul Manafort to smear the Trump campaign and the firm the DNC used to “inspect” Hillary’s email server,

Crowdstrike, is funded by anti-Russian Ukrainian Oligarchs and run by a man who used to work for Mueller at the FBI.

Now we know why Nancy Pelosi wants to know exactly how the U.S. Senate is going to conduct the trial of the impeachment of President Donald Trump,...she needs to control the witnesses and their testimony!!!

2nd hour discussion today, Monday 12-16-19;
MIRS News Service

Legislature, Governor Combine For Fewest PAs Since 1960

Feel like the 2019 session was slower than usual? You're not mistaken.

The 2018 session saw 690 public acts (PAs) signed into law, second only to John ENGLER's last year in office in 2002 (747) as the most since the 1963 Constitution.

Assuming Gov. Gretchen WHITMER signs all 34 outstanding bills awaiting action, the 2019 session of the Michigan Legislature will have gotten 180 public acts enacted, the fewest number of PAs since Gov. Soapy WILLIAMS' last year in office in 1960.

This collection of PAs is based on numbers collected from the official state of Michigan book of public acts published at the end of each year's session.

As of Dec. 12, Whitmer has signed 146 bills into law. She had two on her desk awaiting action, with one of them being the reversal of the deer baiting ban, which is highly unlikely to be signed.

The House Clerk's office has 27 bills to send her and the Secretary of the Senate has another five to process. In all likelihood, Whitmer will sign no more than 179 bills this session.

By comparison, the Legislature sent to former Gov. Rick SNYDER 401 bills in lame duck alone, meaning lawmakers passed twice as many bills in the last six weeks of 2018 than all 52 weeks of 2019.

Historically, odd-numbered years produce fewer bills than even-numbered years, as bills started at the beginning of the term wrap up at the term's end. The average number of bills signed into law in odd-numbered years from 1951 to 2017 is 280. The average number of bills signed in even-numbered years from 1952 to 2018 is 443.

Before 1951, the state Legislature tended to only meet in odd-numbered years until May or June. The Governor did call the Legislature into special session in even-numbered years pre-1952, but the workload was nowhere near the same as the regular odd-numbered-year session.

After 1952, when the Legislature started meeting regularly every year, 1960 is the only other year outside of 2019 in which fewer than 200 bills have been signed into law.

Here's some other notes:

- Of the 179 bills Whitmer is expected to sign, 110 are House bills and 69 are Senate bills.

- Snyder signed 323 bills in his first year in 2011. Gov. Jennifer GRANHOLM signed 322 in her first year with a Republican Legislature in 2003. Gov. John ENGLER signed 201 in his first year in 1991. Gov. James BLANCHARD signed 259 in 1983.

- In 1969, when Gov. Bill MILLIKEN took over, 346 bills were signed. Gov. George ROMNEY signed a combined 317 public acts (249 in the regular session and first special session and another 68 in a second special session). Gov. John SWAINSON signed 239 in 1961. Williams signed 317 in his first year in 1949.

- In 1960, Williams' last year in office, the Republican-led Legislature got 163 PAs out of the Governor until he called a pair of special sessions to create a health care program for those 65 and older and to pass legislation implementing the voter-approved 4% sales tax. They ended up getting another four PA’s out of the session.

MIRS reached out to the Governor's office, House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader for response. Gideon D'ASSANDRO, press secretary for House Speaker Lee CHATFIELD (R-Levering), commended the new dual review process in the House for properly vetting all bills before they come to the floor.

Highlighted by the new Ways & Means Committee, most bills are getting a second set of eyes before going to the floor and that may not mean policy is moving quicker, but what is moving is more thoroughly reviewed, D'Assandro said.

In speaking with various lawmakers, lobbyists and officials over the last week about the fewer number of bills in 2019, a few observations have been shared confidentially:

- Whitmer's intense focus on raising money to fix more roads has pushed many other policy initiatives to the backburner, leaving some lawmakers without a clear idea where she stands on their issues.

- The Senate Majority Leader and Speaker made it clear that reforming the state's auto no-fault insurance law would be their top priority in 2019, and it was. Much of the oxygen in both chambers was sucked up on this issue in the spring and that didn't result in more than a few PAs.

- With a Democratic governor and Republican Legislature, there haven't been many natural areas of agreement outside of criminal justice reform, which has accounted for about a quarter of the PAs signed to date.

- The budget stalemate of the summer and fall locked up discussion on any bill involving the spending or raising of money for at least half the year.
