OMFG Hold My Broom!: Disney Channel Confirms Hocus Pocus Remake Those BASTARDS!

Disney is crossing the line this time on remakes by announcing that the Disney Channel is going to do a remake of Hocus Pocus remake without Bette, Kathy, or Sarah Jessica!

Via Vanity Fair

Rumors of a remake or sequel have been bubbling for what feels like 300 years. (As for why it’s taken so long, Midler once joked that Disney was having “trouble finding a virgin.”) Garris hinted to Forbes in an interview on Tuesday that Disney Channel might be brewing a remake, which perhaps prompted the official confirmation.

Still, we have to wonder why the film is being recast, considering the number of times the original trio has confirmed that they would be interested in reprising their roles. “I would love that,” Parker said in 2016 about filming a Hocus Pocus sequel. “I think we’ve all been fairly vocal about being very keen, but that hasn’t created any ground swell of movement.” No matter why the movie is moving forward without her, Midler, and Najimy—who presumably would call for higher salaries than a TV movie may be prepared to pay—it’s hard to imagine Hocus Pocus without the original Sanderson sisters.

Well since Disney has not learned from the HUGE mistakes of other networks recent television remakes including Beaches, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Dirty Dancing I guess we’ll just have to put a spell on those greenlighting  Mouse Ear executive asses!

CBO Predicts 24 Million Americans Could Lose Coverage Under TrumpCare aka “The Cheaper To Die Act”

 

Business Insider reports:

The Congressional Budget Office on Monday released a much-anticipated report detailing the possible effects of the American Health Care Act, the GOP leadership’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The CBO projected that as many as 14 million Americans could lose their coverage due to the AHCA in 2018. As the Medicaid changes went into effect, the CBO projects this could rise to 24 million by 2026.

Critics of the law had been pointing to the CBO score as a way to fully understand the potential impact of the AHCA on the federal budget and the US healthcare system. The White House and proponents of the AHCA have spent much of the past week casting doubts on the CBO score, in an attempt to blunt the expected blow from the report.

In a press conference last week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said, “If you’re looking at the CBO for accuracy, you’re looking in the wrong place.” Other White House surrogates like National Economic Council chair Gary Cohn and Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney criticized the CBO’s accuracy in interviews on Sunday.

And as an added Death Bonus it guts Medicare and puts our elders at serious risk.

In the past Donald Trump and the GOP have used past CBO estimates to attack President Obama and Obamacare aka The Affordable Care Act.

Arkansas School District Suspends Three Children Because They Think Are HIV+ – Video

Pea  Ridge School District

The Pea Ridge Public School District in Arkansas has suspended three children, all siblings from school, until documentation is provided that none of the children are HIV positive.

“The actions taken by the Superintendent of Pea Ridge School District are appalling and is reminiscent of times past and the case of Ryan White,” says Tom Masseau, Executive Director of DRC. “The fact that the foster families have to provide documentation that the children are HIV negative before entering the school is unlawful and immoral. Further, the fact the school’s attorney authorized this unlawful act is at best appalling. It stigmatizes individuals with disabilities or their “perceived” disabilities as there is no indication these individuals have HIV. There is only an unlawful fear that they do.”

Over the summer, the school district completed a thorough review of records and found an evaluation on one of the boys that stated that the mother and one sibling were both HIV positive.

The Pea Ridge Public School District is in Benton County, Arkansas. Its website claims, “Pea Ridge School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin or disability in any of its policies, practices or procedures.”

 

Republican Rep. James Inhofe Incensed That Gay Servicemen Marched In Uniforms At San Diego PRIDE

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) and the very unpopular Rep. James Inhofe (R-OK) are INCENSED over the fact that the Pentagon allowed LGBT servicemen to march in uniform in the San  Diego Gay Pride Parade

Wrote Inhofe in a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta:

“If the Navy can punish a chaplain for participating in a pro-life event or a  Marine participating in a political rally, it stands to reason that DOD should  maintain the same standard and preclude service members in uniform from marching  in a gay-pride parade. I respectfully request a detailed explanation of the  rationale you used to grant this ‘one-time waiver’ of DOD policy, who requested  the waiver, why this waiver was considered justified over other requests, and  whether you are considering other exceptions to current policy.”

Inhofe who recently that he was so glad that we didn’t have any of  “them” in our family scores 0% in every one of his terms on Human Rights Campaign’s position scorecard and Inhofe’s office has said he “does not hire openly gay staffers due to the possibility of a conflict of agenda.
