AUSTIN (The Bor Repo)—Republican lawmakers in the Texas State Senate are proposing a precedent-setting new bill that would make it illegal for women to live in the state.

Senator Harland Dorrinson, one of the many pro-life lawmakers backing the woman ban, crafted his bill after witnessing Senator Wendy Davis filibuster an anti-abortion bill last month.

“That was our moment to say,‘Enough is enough,’” he said.“This comes down to a choice between life and women, and we choose life.”

Senator Dorrinson said his bill would call for a twenty-foot woman-proof fence to be constructed along the borders of the state.

“Women are great at talking, but not at climbing,” he observed.

But another G.O.P. state senator, Cal Jamson, believes that the total ban on women goes “too far” and is proposing a less draconian bill that would allow some women to remain in the state as guest workers.

“Texas needs women to cook, clean, and cheerlead,” he said.“If they show that they can do those things and stay out of politics, there could be a pathway to citizenship.”

LOL!! You really ARE a clueless skank. How did that meeting with you publisher go yesterday? Looking forward to your big breakthrough (LMAOAU).....
Come on Knock-knock-socks you're getting your characters confused. You weren't being Fenny Bate then, but Bronach and you were attacking Gray Ghost--I'm obviously not he. I've never said anything about writing a book.

BTW, as to today's graphic, you must have missed the "Hush my mouth and call me Sookie Stackhouse" reference because...well, you're old, useless, and stupid and too full of hate.

In their perfect world, everyone would be armed! Who needs police then, we'll just be popping each other off for every little slight we experience. That's exactly what this stand your ground law promotes. It essentially says that blacks cannot fight back.
I hope they abolish it.

Galt has no particular problem with the "exchanges", although they are unnecessary in a free market.
The problem is with taxpayer subsidies of the premiums.
The purpose of the exchanges is to permit buyers to belong to a group in order to get group rates. Offering insurers quantity in exchange for better pricing. That is free market based.

Evidently Galt has never purchased health insurance as an individual or small company.

Who said Homer wasn't disgusted with the verdict? Are you saying that the Zimmerman verdict was never in doubt because there were 6 white women?
Are you saying that juries have to consider only the evidence and the laws and never use emotion or bias?
Is it possible for humans to be totally impartial and unbiased?
Perhaps all juries should be equally comprised of blacks, latinos and whites, male and female.
Also, this writing of books to profit from murder is disgusting and should be forbidden.
Zimmerman jury deliberated for 15 hours, with no evidence.

OJ jury deliberated for 15 seconds, with tons of evidence.

Actually, it was always in doubt. We just hadn't lost our minds yet and accepted verdicts whether we agreed with them or not.

The mob approved of that verdict. The mob didn't like this verdict. So looting and destroying property was justified.

Maybe our national motto should now be "Mob Rule!"

Our elected leaders seem to think so.

Correct. So what?

Eliminate the taxpayer subsidies and Galt has no objection to group policies.

The OJ verdict may have been in doubt to you or any rational person, but was never in doubt for the jury.

You are the one in favor of mob rule. The majority of the population does not condone violent protests or looting. Unfortunately; that image remains in the psyche of the simple minded and justifies racism. One black commits a crime; all blacks are guilty.

Obama’s election was only partly due to a heavy turnout of Hispanics and blacks. The real reason was public sector unions.
Government unions collect billions of dollars every year in forced dues and spent millions of those dollars to get Obama reelected.
But the unions may have shot themselves in the foot this time. Then again, unions are considered "friends" and will more than likely be "rewarded" with those coveted waivers.
Only "enemies" are "punished". As we all know now.
(We've been promoted. We used to be just the "vast rightwing conspiracy".)
Hispanics and Blacks are still voting,
Oh No, say it ain't so.

So YOU can stuff your commieTICism in your attached ear on your braindead head!
