No damage or injuries have been reported with this earthquake.

According to the USGS, quakes with magnitudes ranging from 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest ones felt by humans. Damage is more likely from quakes at a 4.0 magnitude and higher.

OK Governor Responds To Prairie Chicken Listed As Threatened

The Obama administration is placing the lesser prairie chicken on a list of threatened species.

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is placing the lesser prairie chicken on a list of threatened species.
The decision could affect oil and gas drilling, wind farms and other activities in five central and southwestern states.

The decision by the Fish and Wildlife Service is a step below "endangered" status and allows for more flexibility in how the protections for the bird will be carried out under the Endangered Species Act.

The announcement is expected Thursday. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the listing decision in advance.

The wildlife agency's director says he knows the decision will be unpopular with governors in the five affected states but that the bird is "in dire straits" and needs help.

The states are Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico.

Governor Mary Fallin commented on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's decision to list the Lesser Prairie Chicken as a Threatened Species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

"The potential impact of this listing, without the Range Wide Plan, could have resulted in damaging hits to our state's economy, particularly our energy and agriculture industries. With a large amount of conservation already taking place, my administration will take all steps to continue to implement this plan and work with the Service to de-list this species as soon as possible. I am very excited to see industry and the states continue to work together on conserving this bird with our jointly developed conservation strategies," Fallin stated in a news release.

If by "de-list this species as soon as possible" she means does all that is possible to revive the viability of the species then that will be fine. If by that she means bend every letter of the law to allow trampling this resource to develop a different resource then she will probably be spending The People's money in court defending her errors.

Hobby Lobby’ Is Not Slang For ‘Vagina’

What, exactly, is a Hobby Lobby?

Hobby Lobby is a craft store chain with a Christian bent, mostly located in SmallTown, America, which sells glue guns, glitter, fake flowers, scrap-booking supplies, ironic hipster Jesus t-shirts, and cheap Chinese bric-a-brac to Americans who are killing the hours until the End Times arrive ….. which should be any minute now.

Why are they in the news?

The owners, who are more Jesus-y than Jesus, have a small problem with the part of the Affordable Care Act that says that their employees should get a full array of contraceptive choices in their company insurance plan. Specifically, they have a real hard-on for the ‘Morning After Pill’ which they regard as ‘abortion in a pill’ because a truly righteous women would already be on the pill, and anyone who needs Plan B is obviously a impulsive cock-monster whore who can’t control her libido after a pitcher or two of mango sangria at Applebees. Presumably Hobby Lobby doesn’t want their mainly female workforce to be coming in late to work every morning because they had to stop at the drugstore for an abortion pill and a Twix bar. Anyway, the owners of Hobby Lobby took their complaint to the Supreme Court to get them to make the government stop compelling them to shove abortion pills down their employee’s throats.

Is Plan B really an abortion pill?

No. However Chief Justice John Roberts said that the belief that something is an abortion is enough to allow an religious exemption to federal law. So, if you believe it, it is true. This is what is known in legal circles as “The Orly Taitz Rationale.”

Why is the Supreme Court involved?

It’s a Freedom of Speech/Religion thing and the Hobby Lobby people point to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) which says that the federal government cannot burden their religious liberty to keep their employees from being sluts.

Do any other companies feel this way?

Conestoga Wood Specialties is in court too, but nobody pays attention to them because their name doesn’t rhyme. If they were ‘Conestoga Yoga,’ they would probably get a lot more play because people would wonder what positions our plucky pioneering ancestors used when opening up this great country of ours. Instead, they make kitchen cabinets. That is so boring.

So this is all about religion, right?

Ostensibly, yes. Christian fundamentalists believe that the Bible tell them that Jesus thinks that birth control and abortion are ‘non-starters’ although He never says that in so many words. There are hard and fast rules about mixing fabrics and eating shrimp, but not so much about slut pills and IUD’s. Calls from the Supreme Court to Jesus to discuss ‘original intent’ are not being returned. As usual…

What is Hobby Lobby’s argument?

People who support Hobby Lobby generally believe that the government should not be in the business of compelling anyone, including insurance companies, to provide contraceptive care to women. They don’t believe that sexual health is a medical issue and what this is really all about is women wanting to have no-consequence sex. Therefore, their argument boils down to: I don’t want to pay for your birth control pills either through my tax dollars or as part of the pool of money through which all insurance companies cover costs. Also: you are a whore and isn’t it enough that I have to pay for your STD treatments, you disease-ridden skank?

Sometimes they’re not even that nice…

Do they also feel this way about Viagra?

According to Twitchy, we are not allowed to talk about Viagra coverage, so let’s the leave the four-hour boners out of it.

That doesn’t seem fair.

It’s not, but you’re probably thinking with your dick.

Are there any other reasons people don’t like the contraceptive mandate?

Yeah. The president is a black guy.

Is there anything else I should know about the case against the mandate?

What is also at stake here, in light of Citizens United, would be a far-reaching decision whether corporations are not only a person, but are also a religious person whose personal religious beliefs trump those of their employees.

That doesn’t sound good.

It’s not.

So, how’d it go in court?

Well the lady justices – Kagan, Sotomayor and Ginsburg – are pretty hard core in the ‘your religion does not trump my physical health’ camp, but they’ll probably be accused of thinking with their lady-parts and not their lady smarts’ because, you know….women. Stephen Breyer is kind of waffling around and trying to not offend anyone as usual. Thomas and Strip Search Sammy Alito are always predicable pro-Jesus, anti-women votes. Scalia is still the Honey Badger of Constitutional law: he doesn’t give a shit, he’ll trample and shred precedent, even if it is his own. Chief Justice John Roberts is doing his constipated face again, trying to straddle the line between law and his personal beliefs, and hopefully suggesting a delineation between “closely held corporations and public-traded ones” when it comes to the religious personhood of companies.

As the Dahlia Lithwick put it:

The rights of millions of women to preventive health care and workplace equality elicit almost no sign of sympathy or solicitude from the right wing of the bench today. Nor does the possibility that religious conscience objections may soon swallow up the civil rights laws protecting gay workers, women, and other minorities. Religious freedom trumps because we’re “only” talking about birth control.
