Trump Changes Permanent Residence to Florida

In an announcement late Thursday, President Trump has now changed his permanent residence from New York to Florida.  The President gave his reasons through a series of posts on Twitter.  “ 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House, is the place I have come to love and will stay for hopefully, another 5 years as we MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, but my family and I will be making Palm Beach, Florida our permanent residence.”

The President further tweeted, “ I cherish New York and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by political leaders of both the city and the state. Few have been treated worse.”

He went on to say, “ I hate having to make this decision, but in the end, it will be best for all concerned. As President, I will always be there to help New York and the great people of New York. It will always have a special place in my heart.”

 

You can Get Paid $ 10K For Moving to This Heartland American city 

If you are 18 years of age or older, eligible to work in the U.S. have full-time remote work or are self-employed, you can get paid $ 10K for moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma. A program called the Tulsa Remote program now offers grants to remote and digital workers who relocate to Oklahoma’s second-largest city.  The program launched last year has already drawn 10,000 applicants.   The program re-opened recently and will now accept 250-300 more candidates and potential new Tulsans in 2020.

Mike Bodulow is one of the early Tulsa transplants on the program.  Mike and his wife moved from Washington DC to Tulsa.  The cost of living in Tulsa is much lower than in Washington DC and their 1,200 square foot apartment for $ 2,400 a month was traded in for a 2,200  square foot house with a basement and backyard for only $ 1,650 a month in Tulsa.  Bodulow said, “ If you’re thinking about applying for the Tulsa Remote program, you should apply.” Anyone interested can inquire at tulsaremote.com.

 

Homeless Death Rate in Los Angeles County Skyrockets 

According to a recent report by California health officials, the homeless crisis in Los Angeles County has reached deadly proportions.  In a report released Tuesday, the County Dept of Health said that between 2013 and 2018, the number of homeless deaths doubled from 536 to 1,047.  Most of the deaths were from alcohol, drugs, and overdoses which accounted for 27 % of the total deaths during the cited period.  Other causes of death were listed as violence injuries, coronary heart disease, homicides, and suicide.

Mark Ridley-Thomas, a Health Dept Supervisor said in the report. “ This report is tragic and reflects a true state of emergency on the streets of our community.” He went on to say, “ It is unconscionable and inhumane for society to continue to turn a blind eye to this plight.”  LA’s homeless problem doesn’t seem to be getting better.  Recent data from Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority said that 16% more people experienced homelessness between 2018 and 2019 – with more than 36,000 people included in this year’s count.

 

State Lawmaker Calls A Miscarriage ‘Just some mess on a Napkin’ As She Scoffs At Bill Protecting Bidies of Aborted Babies

Democratic Pennsylvania State Rep. Wendy Ullman, recently likened the bodies of aborted babies and early miscarriages as, “ Just some mess on a napkin.” On Tuesday Ullman made her remarks against HB 1890. The  bill  introduced by Rep. Francis Ryan would, ‘ establish requirements for the final disposition of the remains of unborn children after their demise.” Ullman previously voted against a bill in May that would prohibit discriminatory abortions based on a diagnosis of Down Syndrome.

The Pennsylvania Family Council has responded by calling Ullman’s comment, “ one of the most insensitive comments ever uttered by a Pennsylvania legislator.”  Tom Shaheen, Vice President of the Policy For Pennsylvania Family Institute said in a statement, “ A miscarriage, no matter how early, does not result in a ‘mess on a napkin’ but is the loss of a child.” He also said, “Each human life deserves respect, even when lost at an early stage in development.”

The bill comes after some family members discovered 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains in Illinois garage of a late abortionist.
