Michigan about to require women to buy "rape insurance" based on petition signed by 4.2% of voters

Thanks to a petition drive that resulted in 4.2% of Michiganders voicing their minority opinion, Michigan is about to become a place where women have to plan ahead for their abortions. If you become pregnant accidentally or if you are raped and become pregnant and haven't purchased a separate abortion coverage rider on your health insurance, you won't be covered. This isn't just for state government insurance plans or those purchased on the health insurance exchange. It's for EVERY insurance plan available in the state.

Perhaps they should require men to buy dick insurance to cover the cost of complications of Viagra. Those 4 hour erections causing their heads to swell can be expensive. Not counting the heart attacks and strokes it can cause.

Stockman's filings don't explain his income

Both as a candidate and as a congressman, Rep. Steve Stockman of Clear Lake has failed to make federally required disclosures about business affiliations that stretch from Texas to the British Virgin Islands, and has provided no details about the business he claims as his sole source of income.

San Rafael, Calif. Passes Ban That Makes It Illegal To Smoke In Own House If Walls Are Shared With

Another Dwelling



The town of San Rafael, Calif., has passed a ban on smoking that city officials have called the most stringent in the nation. The new ordinance makes it illegal for residents to smoke in their own homes if they share a wall with another dwelling.

The ban applies to owners and renters alike, and it covers condominiums, co-ops, apartments and any multi-family residence containing three or more units.

I don't smoke but I think this is wrong. No town should be able to tell people what they can or can't do in the privacy of their own home. What if they did not like how you had sex? Or that you ate meat on Friday? What if they did not like the TV stations you watched? If you let them dictate to you on one thing, what is the next step?

"Wendy Davis Redefines ‘Pro-Life,’ Enrages Anti-Choicers"

“I am pro-life,” she told a University of Texas at Brownsville crowd on Tuesday. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”
“This isn’t about protecting abortion,” Davis explained in the same appearance. “It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”
