The Superintendent of the Waco Independent School District (WISD) in Waco, Texas was arrested Wednesday night on a misdemeanor marijuana charge. Marcus Nelson, the district’s Superintendent, was driving north on U.S. 190 Wednesday evening when he got pulled over by a trooper from the Department of Public Safety. The trooper was working a routine patrol when he observed that Nelson’s 2007 GMC Yukon was in the left lane and not passing.
This week the Senate failed to pass Ben Sasse’s (R-NE) bill which prohibited infanticide and mandated that babies born after a botched abortion receive proper medical care. When this happened, I found myself in a weird position. Though I disagree with the reasoning the Democrats had to vote no, and I am extremely pro-life, I would have voted no too. This is because although I believe it is a great moral issue that must be solved, it is not a federal issue. It is a state issue, and we would be wise to remember that just because it is morally good, does not mean it should that all levels of government should do it.
