Political Double Speak at it's Best

Cait McKnelly

If this wasn't so serious for the women of Texas it would be funny. Unfortunately, it's not. See, Rick Perry wants to defund Planned Parenthood. The Federal government has told him he can't do that and since 90% of funding for women's healthcare in Texas comes from the Fed, it's ...

Obama Just Won Re-election

Cait McKnelly

[And it was the GOP that handed it to him.][1] Republicans in Congress messed around and messed around and refused to renew the Violence Against Women Act. So Obama waited until they all went on vacation and did it for them. Their obstructionism finally bit them in their nether parts. ...

Curiosity

http://www2.ljworld.com/users/photos/2012/aug/06/238869/ In 1969, on July 21st, man stepped onto the moon for the very first time. People around the world gathered around their TVs to watch the first step. It was a day of celebration that was global. People watched with bated breath until that first step was taken and ...

Will the Republican Convention Reject Romney?

Cait McKnelly

http://www.politicususa.com/mitt-romney-replaces-sarah-palin-americas-hated-politician.html http://www.people-press.org/2012/08/02/romneys-personal-image-remains-negative/ This actually makes me wonder if the RNC will do something drastic at the convention and not nominate Romney. I recently read an article (can't remember where or I would link it, however, there are multiple articles online regarding it ) that there are mutterings that they want ...

Science Has Found God

Cait McKnelly

Or has God found science? Officials at the CERN particle accelerator (the largest nuclear reactor in the world) have announced that they have found and identified the Higgs boson. The boson was nicknamed "the God particle" because it is the particle that, quite literally, holds matter together. Without it there ...

Planned Parenthood to Continue Getting Funding

Cait McKnelly

Once again the big city newspapers have trumped the LJ World. Yesterday, it was reported in the Kansas City Star that, again, the state had been hit with a temporary injunction blocking it from defunding Planned Parenthood out of federal dollars. The injunction was sought and granted when the 2012 ...

Homegrown Terrorism

Cait McKnelly

A wave of domestic terrorism is sweeping the South. In the past four weeks three womens healthcare clinics in Georgia and one in Alabama have been firebombed. http://www.ajc.com/news/womens-clinics-on-heightened-1446171.html These incidents followed several burglaries and break ins at clinics in March where computer equipment was stolen or destroyed and offices vandalized. ...

The Myth of "Fetal Pain"

Cait McKnelly

WARNING! Parts of this article may be triggering! Technical language is involved in this article. Attempts will be made to simplify as necessary. A number of state legislatures are passing legislation outlawing abortion after the twentieth week on the basis of "fetal pain". This is just one of many, unscientifically ...

The War on Women-Part Deux

Cait McKnelly

This is taking on metaphorical aspects of "Kill Bill(s)" (pun intended). A national wave is sweeping the country in response to multiple bills being introduced in state houses across the country. The fiasco of an all male panel, over including contraception in preventative health insurance, didn't exactly help. Women are ...

The War on Women Redux

Cait McKnelly

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/06/kansas-anti-abortion-bill_n_1258185.html My head just exploded. The tl;dr on this is that doctors can deliberately lie and withhold information from pregnant women that could seriously impact their health, even killing them, to prevent them from aborting and be exempt from being sued for anything but wrongful death if the woman dies. ...
