4. Apparently not - I have no idea what bill the OP is talking about.
Pro-rape bill?

Of course, my assholes, Alexander and Corker, would vote for something anti-woman, but I still don't know what it is.

8. It's horrible. Here is a youtube link to Senator Franken explaining it:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q5kVbiWnAQ

basically, legally halliburton cannot be sued for their employees drugging and gang raping an employee. Also, the woman was placed for 24 hours in a shipping container. The woman was given a some hush money by halliburton. She legally can't say how much. It's really really really sick. 30 republicans in the senate supported halliburton (no female republicans supported halliburton). Balloon boy made the headlines all day long. This got ignored.
