Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 14, 2018

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin says children were left vulnerable to harm, sexual assault and drugs as a result of public school closures throughout the state Friday to allow teachers and supporters to protest at the state's Capitol. "I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them," the Republican governor told reporters Friday afternoon, according to CNN affiliate WDRB. "I guarantee you somewhere today, a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent didn't have any money to take care of them." Bevin went on to say that "some were introduced to drugs for the first time because they were vulnerable and left alone."

He wants to blame the teachers instead of the Legislators who created the situation they were responding to. He will be laughed at everywhere. What a freaking jerk!

This sucks.

Why do Kentucky kids get to have all the fun?

Then why didn't he provide emergency daycare? I'm sure as Governor that wouldn't have been too hard to do.

Their protest signs read 'We love our public schools', 'Yes for funding', 'Support our schools!', 'Fund Public Education'.

.. Members of the teachers union also were critical of Bevin's vetoes of budget and revenue bills, both of which the union said are crucial to funding public education.

On Friday night, legislators in the Republican-controlled Senate voted to override the vetoes.

"We acknowledge neither bill gives the citizens of the Commonwealth everything that our students, their parents and our communities need." the Kentucky Education Association said on Facebook. "However, both bills provide much needed P-12 funding for the next biennium."

The governor tweeted his disapproval.

"We have time to do this correctly. The people of Kentucky deserve nothing less. Transparency makes for good policy AND good politics," he wrote. "I have met with House and Senate leaders all week to propose more responsible ways to pay for 100% of the requested education funding. Crickets."

"Crickets"! Such a personal way to end it's tweet.

"I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them," the governor said, according to CNN affiliate WDRB.
"I guarantee you somewhere today, a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent didn't have any money to take care of them," he continued. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children."
He also claimed that some children were "introduced to drugs."
Where were those teachers when the introduction drugs were being passed out? Or the sexual victimization? They were protesting to fund their jobs and keep their pensions from being raided, the nerve!

Rcade has a front and back page.

I suggest he add a funny page and let us -------- there first before he cleans up our attempts at humour.

The way it is works for me.

It's the piss pants bawl babies who flag everything that gets posted and try to get people banned that need to go.

They are the reason the site has about 12 regular posters.
