SUPPORTS CHILD SERVICE CUTS: Sen. Missy Irvin.
  • SUPPORTS CHILD SERVICE CUTS: Sen. Missy Irvin.
We clip and paste, you decide:

* CUTS IN CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION PROGRAMS: In a report on these, comes the following:

State Sen. Missy Irvin, R-Mountain View, chairman of the Senate Interim Committee on Children and Youth, said she supports the decision to cut preventative programs to keep caseworkers on the job. She said the federal spending cuts underscore the need for state lawmakers to take a close look at state spending priorities during next year’s legislative session.

“We’ve got to use our money wisely and put it toward programs that work, and if they don’t work we need to get rid of those programs,” Irvin said.

... Irvin said she believes the federal government should cut wasteful spending rather than raise revenue.

Does this mean spending on child abuse prevention is wasteful spending?

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
