<quoted text> No, I think that adult women are just as capable as any man is to make up their own minds about what to do with their own bodies.
But you will not permit adults to decide whether or not to purchase medical insurance.

Not since he went to pay-per-view or the radio version of same.

Beck is making tons of money, by the way.

Sheesh, is there going to be a test on all this?

"The Obama Administration has put forward an opening bid in what are sure to be contentious 2014 budget negotiations, issuing a solidly progressive transportation budget that calls for increased overall spending and continued investment in passenger rail." "The $76 billion transportation budget would represent a 5.5 percent, or $4 billion, spending increase over 2012 levels.
In addition, the president repeated his call for $50 billion in stimulus-style funding in 2014. Of this one-time funding infusion,$40 billion would be reserved for “fix-it-first” projects aimed at bringing the nation’s roads, bridges, and transit systems into a state of good repair. The other $10 billion would be offered on a competitive basis to “innovative” projects, through programs like TIGER."
Advocates for smart growth praised the president’s proposal.
“Building strong communities is a key part of America’s economic growth, and I applaud the President for investing in programs that do just that in his FY 2014 budget,” Smart Growth America President and CEO Geoff Anderson said in a press release.“Investments in infrastructure and ‘fix it first’ projects will help businesses compete in the 21st century economy and will help working Americans get where they need to go more easily and more efficiently.”

Well, sure, but I have to use only clinical terms so flack won't understand them. If I used his and his cronies vocabulary, he'd surely cry, "Pornographic" and have me banned forthwith. Of course, I would never use any of his and his cronies vocabulary, but that's what flack "sats." Also, I doubt if Batty Loo was ever anybody's idea of a good time even if we hard-working democrats are just naturally all about fun.

Of course you don't, you don't have a uterus. That's pretty much their point.

<quoted text>The lower gestation period requirement mainly. I am assuming since most women don't even know they're pregnant at six weeks, the intra-uterine probe would be necessary for her to actually be able to "see" the fetus she is forced to see.
Wasn't it the PA Governor who said "what's the big deal? All she has to do is just shut her eyes till it's over"?

(or was he talking about his wife)?

I'm not sure what those final bills contained in those states, however, it has been stated that ultrasound must be paid by the patient, not convered by insurance. Therefore, if a poor woman is trying to get an abortion which, lets say costs $500, adding upwards of that amount for an ultrasound could be cost prohibitive; which I suppose is the intent, make it too expensive, too far away etc. so more poor women will be forced to have their unwanted babies so they can then go on welfare and becomg criminals; according to Billo. These freaks can't make up their minds. Just seems to be that women are fked no matter what they do.

You know I'm for it however, the government being half in with M and M has driven costs too high. Either all or none, in-between doesn't work.

Don't give them any more ideas, but I doubt if all abortion clinics have, or could afford, your industrial UT, even those that are going to make Rick Perry's sister quite a few bucks if all goes as legislated.

Too funny. This is the Homer I know and love.

You've seen the video of the horse race where Hoof Hearted was winning and the announcer couldn't be more excited about saying the horse's name over and over as it was coming into the home stretch?

Let me know if you haven't seen it and I'll post it. Hilarious.
