Nevada anti-abortion license plates discontinued due to lack of demand


The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles confirmed Thursday that an anti-abortion specialty license plate has been discontinued after failing to prove its demand.

The “Values Life” specialty license plate debuted in July 2018 and had until Dec. 31, 2019 to receive 3,000 active registrations. It fell short of that quota.

According to a DMV spokesperson, 2,005 of the specialty were plates were registered by the midnight deadline.

The plate was a fundraising project of the Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada, which describes its mission as helping “save the lives of unborn children by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through spiritual, physical, emotional and educational support to our clients.” The center explicitly states it does not recommend, provide or refer for abortions.

Also discontinued for failing to garner enough support is the “Heritage of Sparks” specialty license plate, which featured Last Chance Joe and supports the Sparks Heritage Museum and Cultural Center.


We need to make our government child-proof


WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to finalize a host of high-profile rules in 2020, including policies that will impact everything from auto emissions to food stamp access.

With the November presidential election approaching, the administration is widely expected to make a push to wrap up pending regulations early in 2020 in an effort to bolster those rules against a possible Democratic administration that may seek to unravel Trump’s policies.

Trump administration officials have been effective at overturning the work of their predecessors.

With the help of the GOP-led Congress, the administration effectively torpedoed a slew of Obama-era regulations. After Trump’s inauguration, GOP lawmakers used the Congressional Review Act to overturn 16 Obama rules, according to the Center for Progressive Reform. That law had been used only once before that, when the George W. Bush administration overturned a Clinton-era rule dealing with workplace safety.

Regulatory experts predict the administration is working hard behind the scenes to ensure that their own policies aren’t as vulnerable. Trump’s roadmap was laid out in a recent regulatory timeline, which estimates the dates for finalizing federal agencies’ rules.

Food stamp restrictions, climate rule rollback, health care, campus sexual assault...

As the next election approaches, the carpet-baggers and monkey-wrenchers are laying waste to our government. Everything we have struggled for is at risk. If Dems lose this election we will likly see uranium mines in the Grand Canyon and advertisements for Trump golf courses on the moon guarded by U.S. Space Forces (insert your own comic cartoon music here).

Just as we all learned to make our homes child-proof, we now must learn to do the same for our government.

Please vote.
