Missouri's end run

Missouri bans Planned Parenthood from school sex ed classes.

Read the article. They've essentially made an end run around Roe v. Wade. Very clever tactic but one that is likely to be met with a very strong lawsuit by abortion providers Planned Parenthood. Curious to see how far this one goes. I have little doubt the State Supreme court will uphold the law but I don't know what Circuit they're in so I can't speculate how they'll find.

Exit Strategies posits that a rapid withdrawal from Iraq would not be catastrophic but would be very ugly and then end with a three state solution. I don't share that assessment as I think Iran would send agents over the border very quickly to tilt the balance in their favor. Worth a read and worth considering after Monday's article about Iraqi taking care of their own security. Let's put it to a vote. Let the Democrats stand and be counted for or against withdrawal. Likewise, if Iraq is so confident they can handle things, pass a motion telling us to leave.

"If the European Union were a state in the USA it would belong to the poorest group of states. France, Italy, Great Britain and Germany have lower GDP per capita than all but four of the states in the United States. In fact, GDP per capita is lower in the vast majority of the EU-countries (EU 15) than in most of the individual American states. This puts Europeans at a level of prosperity on par with states s…

You Are a Smart American

You know a lot about US history, and you're opinions are probably well informed.

Congratulations on bucking stereotypes. Now go show some foreigners how smart Americans can be.

Are You a Dumb American?

DV is a liar. Let's review:

"What started out as a little home improvement project has quickly blossomed into a multi thousand dollar job with no end in sight."

Who does that sound like? Who told us we'd be in and out in short order after we toppled the dictator? Yet here we are, years later with no end in sight.

"Originally I was going to put in a bay window where these 2 small windows are to the right (see picture below). Well my dad, the genius that he is said, “Instead of that, why don’t you just move the door there instead? It will cost the same and may actually be less.”

That was all I needed to here “Less”

Well ges what? LESS IS MORE! WAY F@#$G MORE! WAY, WAY, WAY F$#%@!G MORE! (ironically the electrician is named Les….he ain’t no less!)

The door did cost less it was only $1000 (snark) compared to $1400, butttttttttttt, guess what, do you see where those bushes are under the 2 porthole windows? Yep, I need a walkway, well I have 3 Mexicans feverishly…

Barbarism here and there.

Iraq Can Handle Security, Premier Says. Then let them. If they're so confident, pass a measure in Parliment calling for our withdrawal. If they are a sovereign state, they can kick us out. If we were to stay after being told to leave, we would finally be the occupiers that lefties have been saying we are.

Saudis' role in Iraq insurgency outlined. Al-Qaeda ain't the be all, end all, and is a smaller influence than projected in the media. They're coming largely from Saudi. Interesting and actually not troubling so much as encouraging. That means the locals are not fighting us as much as the Saudis and it's also draining the Saudi feverswamp of Wahabbism that's been infecting the Muslim world for decades.

The cancer cure you'll never get. This brief video clip explains why price fixing for drugs would destroy the industry by root and branch.
