some blog that I doubt Bristol Palin even reads anymore:
Last week, I was sitting at my desk, working hard (Let's all pause here to let the laughing subside.), when I came across Hillary Clinton’s latest campaign talking point. Her latest way to steal our freedoms and crush our businesses involved something near and dear to my heart – family and motherhood. (Take note that by "steal our freedoms" Bristol and her ghostwriter are referring to a family leave plan to benefit working mothers and fathers.)
And I was blown away. I shook my head in awe of this stupidity. (Well we are all familiar with that feeling, aren't we?)
Honestly, I’m not a political expert (Snort! Sorry.) but I do have common sense. (Okay if I keep choking back my laughter this post might actually kill me.) And motherhood, working hard, and small businesses are things that are key to my family and my life.
Hillary’s proposed plan guarantees 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to care for a new child or seriously ill family member. Beyond this government mandate, it also mandates that the person taking leave get at least 2/3 of their current wages. It claims to impose no additional costs on small businesses. How is this even possible? (I am going to go with raising taxes on the wealthy.)
It’s going to “make the wealthy” pay “their fair share.” (Ha! Knew it!) Whatever these words mean… (Pretty self explanatory actually.) which usually just means justifying socialist policies that harm hard workers.
Trump’s latest plan also would mandate six weeks of paid leave, but it has nothing on Hillary’s. I would love to see private businesses be able to voluntarily offer this tremendous, unheard of benefit, but never should we support government forcing this uneconomic, unrealistic boondoggle. (Boondoggle?)
Does Hillary Clinton plan to enforce this latest mandate on every single business? Even the small businesses that truly make this country great and employ most of our people?
How does she plan on putting all of this in effect? (Uh policy is kind of her thing. She has undoubtedly already figured it out.)
I think of my husband, who owns a construction company, and how much that would affect his business. (Not much at all actually. The pay would come from a fund set up by the Clinton administration, and paid for by a tax hike on the wealthiest Americans, so all the company would have to do is hold the job for the returning employee.)
I think of the small doctor’s office I have been employed by for the last seven years, and I think of how much something like this would change us here. (Once again, not much.)
My husband and I were talking, and figuring out the math and logistics behind this (Holy shit! Could you even imagine that kind of a brain trust tackling math? It would be like a blind person leading a mentally challenged person into oncoming traffic.), and here is a basic way to look at Hillary’s proposed plan.
If this was in effect – and say I make approximately $60,000.00 (easiest math) and I had a baby. That is AT LEAST $9,200.00 and 12 weeks off of work that I would be “guaranteed” to have with Hillary’s plan.
CAN YOU IMAGINE?????!!!!! Where is this money going to be coming from? (Clinton already answered this question on her website.)I know I will get bashed for this, but no one deserves that! I have been at my job for over seven years now (Once again, snort!), and I was thrilled to have even two weeks paid vacation time to use toward my month long “maternity” leave. Where is the common sense in any of these plans? Where is the connection to reality?
We should all be capitalists!! We need to get back to the basics. We need to work and not feel entitled to everything in life. We live in a world where everyone is looking for a crutch, where we compare everything to every other person and what they have, and trust me, I can be guilty of this at times too. (Yeah, just ask Sunny.)
But when we keep up this “poor me” attitude and an attitude of entitlement, our country will go nowhere but down. (Actually we are WAY behind other industrialized countries, some of which offer as much as 26 to 40 weeks of paid maternity leave.) And we have been going down fast! I look at what my kids will be growing up with, and what their society will be EXPECTING, and it really does leave me speechless.
All of these people yelling everything from “free birth control” to “free college.” Do they not realize that when things are guaranteed, the prices actually go up, and all of our taxes go up along with it in order to pay for it? Where is the work ethic? Where is the incentive to do it on your own? (Says the woman who has literally had EVERYTHING handed to her.)
This is just further proof that Hillary Clinton wants to continue to “spread the wealth” just like Obama’s main plan was – make us all EQUAL no matter what our work ethic really is. (What? No comment about "welfare queens?" I'm disappointed.)
This goes beyond maternity leave plans, or medical leave plans. It’s a bigger issue than all of that. We need to get back to the basics as a country and we as Americans need to realize not everything in life should be handed to you.
SO MUCH BULLSHIT!
Okay so it looks like Bristol is once again lending out her name so that her mother can push these intellectually dishonest attacks against her political enemies.
I imagine that in her opinion this somehow makes it more palatable, but considering that Bristol is the spoiled rotten offspring of a nationally detested professional troll, who is constantly taking her baby daddies to court, that seems highly unlikely.
Besides are there really people out there who seriously believe Bristol can jot down a reasonably coherent grocery list, much less a long blog post like this one?
