Sexting, Texting and Protecting On House Agenda For Next Week

Sexting, Texting and Protecting: Redux…
Budget, Education Choices, and Traffic Safety on House Schedule

Voter ID, workers’ compensation reform, unemployment compensation reform and property tax referendum legislation on House committee agenda next week

The PA state House returns to session on Monday, May 9, to deal with various issues of importance.

It’s a disturbing trend in teenage flirting, the sending of nude or semi-nude photos from cell phone to cell phone. It’s called “sexting,” and while the X-rated offerings are usually intended just for a boyfriend or girlfriend, the photos often wind up being shared. The House will address the issue next week as it considers House Bill 815 (Rep. Seth Grove, R-York County).

The sexting legislation would create a new misdemeanor of the second degree for minors ages 13-17 caught disseminating such material. Under current law, teens could be subject to felony prosecution for these acts, which is often considered too harsh. The proposed legislation will allow cases of minor-to-minor sexting to be tried in juvenile courts, which will provide a menu of adjudication options including counseling and expungement of the offense from a minor’s permanent criminal record.

Texting, Distractions and Traffic Safety
Distracted driving legislation intended to curb driver distractions for all drivers – House Bill 896 (Rep. Chris Ross, R-Chester County) and House Bill 8 (Rep. Kathy Watson, R-Bucks County) – will be voted by the full House next week. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood calls texting while driving a “menace to society.” Making the roads safer and protecting young drivers is the aim of House Bill 9 (Watson), which provides extra measures of protection and preparedness for drivers ages 16 and 17. The bill strengthens the Graduated Drivers License for the first time since 1999.

Bicyclist safety is at the heart of House Bills 170 and 174 (Rep. Ron Miller, R-York County). The pair of bills require motorists to be careful when overtaking bicycles on roadways.

Protecting students and parents. The House will vote on legislation to expand Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program (House Bill 1330, Rep. Tom Quigley, R-Montgomery County). Through the EITC, the state provides companies with a 75 percent tax credit for donations to a non-profit scholarship or educational improvement organization; the tax credit increases to 90 percent if the company commits to making the same donations for two consecutive years. A business paying taxes in Pennsylvania can receive up to $300,000 in tax credits annually. EITC provides children and families with a choice in education and expands educational opportunities for all Pennsylvanians.

Protecting women’s health. The Health Care Facilities Act would be amended to protect the health and safety of women who use abortion facilities. House Bill 574 (Rep. Matt Baker, R-Tioga County) holds abortion facilities to the same standards as all other free standing medical facilities in Pennsylvania.

Budget: Setting the Right Priorities, Living Within Our Means
House Republicans are shifting budget priorities to education over welfare by cutting wasteful spending and dropping ineffective programs. The House Republicans are working to enact a fiscally responsible, on-time, pay-as-you-go budget with no new taxes and no new borrowing – ending the trend of spending money we don’t have. The House budget will cut welfare spending to redistribute those funds to education.

The Weekly Schedule
Bill numbers will be used to identify the legislation being considered either in committee or on the House floor. The bills, sponsors and summaries are posted HERE.

More then "texting" needs addressed. What about those putting on make-up, reading maps/newspaper, eating, etc? Believe it or not, once I even saw a boy and girl having sex while driving down a state 4-lane highway.

The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
1. Alcohol
2. Drugs
3. Preditory "earning"
4. Homosexuality
5. Gambling
6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, The Chinese Holocaust.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. Revelry will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles will survive the 1000 years. They will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during Planet Earth's history.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new population, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial element in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.

Only children go to heaven. By the time you hit puberty it is too late. This is charecteristic of the gods:::Once you realize what you have lost it is too late.
Now you are faced with a lifetime to work to prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time, getting stoned, "Hiking!", working, etc.
