Which Party Do Weasels Belong That Can Generate So Much Fear and Hype

Waiting on the GOP to Start Telling the Truth 
(and Stop Spreading Hate and Discontent)

In the Meantime GOP Advice

Interesting and timely story from here - the headlines alone will scare the crap out of you:

[GOP] Candidates Ready to Trash the Constitution to Fight ISIS saying in essence: 
“Time to Put Life Ahead of Civil Liberties”


Never mind who poked at the hive and stirred up an angry storm. Those are lessons of blow back for those with memory and perspective.

Right now the reactionary fervor is all that matters. Indeed, it is difficult to focus on much else.

In hindsight, the nation became sick and tired of the wars and the fear over terrorism under the reign of Bush 43. But in the moment, people embraced it – and that’s the danger again.  

There is no clear or rational thought under fear of attack.

The GOP is Full of Sick Bastards ... Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL)

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL)

Another sick GOP Rep..... get this from Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL)

In an appearance on the Dale Jackson Show on Friday Brooks discussed the Syrian crisis and President Obama’s pledge to shelter 10,000 refugees.

Instead of viewing refugees as people fleeing the violence that has claimed more than 200,000 lives, Brooks saw a host of incoming welfare queens intent on taking advantage of Americans’ generosity, saying in part:

“We’re paying them about $15,000 a year in free health care, free food, free shelter, free clothing, free transportation. That answers very quickly why so many of them want to come to the United States of America. We’re paying them to come here,” the Alabama congressman concluded. “It’s a paid vacation!”

Folks, this GOP is in deep trouble and they are the last ones to see it .... Hopefully, 2016 will be a huge wake up call for the voters and then the country will react in a positive manner and throw their raggedy asses out of office once and for all. Sounds harsh, perhaps, but not as harsh as GOPers' actions while in office since about 2010. Seems to get worse each cycle.

Texas Right to Carry: Right to Be Carried to Your Grave Minus Honor and Dignity

Elected Texans Believe Does Not Apply to Syrian Refugees

This is the worst case of hypocritical bullshit I have ever seen or heard about ... see if you agree:

Texas is notorious for its gun culture. Over the past couple of years, we have seen an expansion of laws allowing the “open carry” of guns, as well as allowing students to “carry firearms on college campuses.” But we also must not forget about the lunacy of the open carry law in Texas which at one point threatened groups like Moms Demand Action who opposed their agenda when they showed up outside their meetings carrying assault rifles. Real democracy, right?

From here and Talking Points Memo: Texas State Rep. Tony Dale is arguing against giving any refugees asylum in Texas because of their state gun laws, stated this way:

“In a two-page letter sent to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), Texas Rep. Dale asked state officials to reject the resettlement of more Syrian refugees within the Lone Star State’s borders after Friday’s terror attacks in Paris. He argued that immigration documents granted to refugees would allow them to obtain Texas drivers’ licenses, which in turn would allow them to procure firearms.”

“While the Paris attackers used suicide vests and grenades it is clear that firearms also killed a large number of innocent victims,” Dale wrote. “Can you imagine a scenario were a refugee is admitted to the United States, is provided federal cash payments and other assistance, obtains a driver’s license and purchases a weapon and executes an attack?”  [Source]

You read that right, a pro-gun Republican lawmaker is warning that Texas shouldn’t allow refugees to come to Texas because it is too easy to buy a gun there. He claims that if they established residency in Texas, they could get a driver’s license and then procure weapons to carry out a terrorist attack.

My view is simple: I suggest  that every Texas lawmaker who voted for their gun laws, open carry and others, just glance in the nearest mirror when speaking in such an outrageous manner to see both the problem and solution.

Common Sense Solution to Syrian Mess: Complex, Yet Simple in Scope

Syrians on the Run: A Humanity Problem

Sometimes the simplest solution can solve the most-complex problem. 

Here is my solution to solving the Syrian problem. It would work I think:

(1)  Stop the refugee flow problem,
(2)  Stop that civil war going on since 2011 where well over 250,000 have been killed.
(3)  Stop the flow of well over 5 million Syrians who have been displaced,
(4)   Would end the some 200,000 or so now who are refugees and spread all over the place outside of Syria.
(5)  Would stop the sustained misery and uncertainty in the ME with ISIS running amok.

Two quick and simple solutions:

1.  Syrian President Basar al-Assad, now in office since 2000 and before his father who was in power there 30 years before that, has to ... he is the problem and removing him is the solution.

2. Then under international supervision work to return Syria to a normal state with massive UN/NATO and other friendly troops supervising.

I am sure the refugees would like to return to their native land and not live all over the globe like now.

So, why this plan: what we see now simply is not working...

Something along these lines is logical; common sense logic - but the major players (e.g., Russia, the U.S. and European powers) must all agree.

We shall see.

Dr. Ben: Can't Scratch His Ass With a Handful of Fish Hooks

He Has a Hard Time With This

And This

Psst, hey, Dr. Ben:  Inside the Great Pyramid is usually a Mummy or two, but no Daddy, or tons of grain. Sorry.

You see, the problem facing Dr. Ben is that he keeps having this recurring nightmare when he wakes up in cold sweat trying to figure out the difference between a Mummy and box of Cheerios.

But, fear not, help is on site:

Hey Doc: The grain is in the next chamber. You're welcome. Now, when I count to three and snap my fingers you will wake up and remember nothing except my instructions, okay?

One-two-three, snap, snap. There feel better already don’t you. Good man.

Congress Works 6 Months With 6 Months Pay: A Total of 42 Days — Whoopee

Oh yeah, according to the GOP Majority "Leader's" Calendar
(Highlight: Actual Work Days)

Congress to the American people: “We are on the job serving the American people (which we hear in every one of their floor speeches and PR statements).”

So, American people, it's our tax dollars at work that pays these, now what should we call them: Productive elective officials; good government employees; or how about scam artists to tell us the fine job they are doing while doing zilch?

Fear not, they all have “check to bank.”

That story from here … kind of nauseating isn’t it?

Hey, wassup?

GOP Party of No While Claiming 100%: "We must follow the Founding Fathers"

Miles or GOP Reasons to Change Constitution

GOP "Leaders" Looking for Solutions in the Wrong Places
(with their base in tow)

The Grand Old Party always cites the need to follow what the Founding Fathers “intended for us all to follow,” then they come up with a few wild-ass ideas like:

1.  Amend the Constitution to “Balance the Budget” (rather than do their duly-elected jobs and budget responsibly).

2.  Amend the Constitution to “Have Right to Refuse” ACA – Obama-care (another way to repeal health care after so many attempts in the past).

3.  Amend the Constitution to “Repeal the 17th Amendment” (and go back to the future that allowed State bodies to pick U. S. Senators like it was before 1913 – figure that one out, Doc Brown).

4.  Amend the Constitution to “Repeal the 14th Amendment” (Hey Sen. Cruz and a few others: “Duck...”).

5.  Yet, the neglect their sworn duty to “Declare war” by going to war on a whim, anytime, anyplace, and for any reason (which usually backfires and weakens us for a number of reasons that make no sense, and mostly on credit or foreign borrowing).

A few more of those crazies are listed here – it’s a good read. The party of the people they profess; yeah, right. But in reality, actions that protect their own self-interests and personal political survival is more like it.

The GOP treats the Constitution like a set of suggestions while professing (out of the other side of their mouth): “It's the soul of the nation, it must be followed to the letter (except for us).”  One word actually is missing from the Constitution that clearly describes this and it’s one word that apparently is not on the GOP vocab list.

What is that word?

GOP Newest War: Native American Rights — "Damn Foreigners" Right, Right...???

Native Americans Left High and Dry
(Thanks to Sens. McCain and Flake (R-AZ)

Professing to Stand With All Americans 
(Only the Ones they Pick and Choose)

This story was forwarded to me - it's a great piece and an issue I didn't know anything about, and I bet you didn't either.

Date and Place: About an hour east of Phoenix near a mining town called Superior lies Oak Flat, Arizona. 

Story in part: Three hundred people, mostly Apache, marched the 44 miles from tribal headquarters to begin this occupation on February 9, 2015. The campground lies at the core of an ancient Apache holy place, where coming-of-age ceremonies, especially for girls, have been performed for many generations, along with traditional acorn gathering. It belongs to the public, under the multiple-use mandate of the Forest Service, and has had special protections since 1955, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower decreed the area closed to mining — which, like cattle grazing, is otherwise common in national forests — because of its cultural and natural value. President Richard M. Nixon’s Interior Department in 1971 renewed this ban.

The key: Despite those protections, in December 2014, Congress promised to hand the title for Oak Flat over to a private, Australian-British mining concern. A fine-print rider trading away the Indian holy land was added at the last minute to the must-pass military spending bill, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). By doing this, Congress has handed over a sacred Native American site to a foreign-owned company (a foreign entity) that may be the first time in our nation’s history.

Until this NDAA, that swap always failed due to a lack of support. But this time was different. This time, the giveaway language was slipped onto the defense bill by Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, both from Arizona, and at the 11th hour. That tactic was successful only because, like most last-minute riders, it bypassed public scrutiny.

Transparency, right Mr. and Mrs. Gee Old Poops? You bet cha’ as Palin would say. Damn right, I suppose.

Continue at the NY TIMES line above, and thanks for stopping by, and oh, yeah, remember to Vote GOP in 2016 and help preserve America for Native Americans, right?

Attention all Hardline, Rightwing, Ultra Conservative GOP Christians

Sign Holders Believe in Christianity and Other Religions are Not Allowed or Tolerated

One is the Nation's Laws, the Other is Ethical and Moral Guidelines

This subject has always interested me and made me explore more about the meaning and differences between “Man-made laws vs. God-made laws” more so today the topic divides the country more than I have ever seen in my lifetime. And bashing other religions, fair game - worse, those who profess to have no preference. Now the USSC is back in the thick of it - in our bedrooms as the article outlines ... as if Hobby-Lobby wasn't enough about controlling a woman's right to choose her own birth control and not her frigging boss or business manger or company or corporation — yuk.

A lot of references are out there to explore – sadly, Christian hardliners will only cite one source, their Bible, while ignoring all others: It's the Bible or nothing.  

Source #1: Quite detailed and has this opening headline:

20 Jesus Biblical Quotes That Would Make A
 "Christian Right-Winger’s" Head Explode

My fav quote out of those many well-known ones is this:

“And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” [Luke 6:41 KJV]

That is Jesus’ famous quote about hypocrisy explaining more so today why conservative Christians say one thing and mean another. For example: they talk about the sanctity of marriage between “one man and one woman” while their leaders cheat on their own spouses, some seek gay sex (on the down low), some talk obsessively about rape, some cheat on taxes, some abuse drugs (prescriptions or not), and some engage in illegal acts. Yet, they’re the first to throw a non-violent, first-time drug offender in prison or claim a rape victim was “just asking for it, or the birth is God’s will.”

Please ready the others at the link – they are keepers.

Source #2: “For the Last Time, the Constitution is Not Based on the Bible” – a fact. Please read the whole article.

What is my point, if anything: To me, hardliner Christian conservatives are just that, hardliners and hardcore and rigid and will not budge on anything they perceive that somehow interferes with Bible teachings.

Folks the backbone of our country is not religion other than saying clearly:  [… we have the freedom of religion to worship anyway we choose or not, and government cannot write laws about that]. And, that is precisely why it’s in the Constitution – which is the law of the land and not based on any Bible verses in any sense or as the conservatives love to say sign above says; "God law." I have always wondered, which law are they talking about?  

These are my views and I am sure many will disagree 100% - and that too my friends, is their right.

Weasels Passing as Penguins: Science Which GOPers Don't Trust (So, Wassup)

No Offense to Robin Lord Taylor Who is a "Great Penguin on Gotham"
but Rep. Trent Gowdy (R-SC) a "Poor Committee Chairman"

Now, shortly after the HILL grilling (which was a horrible 11 hour show) Gowdy strikes again. This time with a crazy-ass PR scheme. So, will it work? With the brain-dead GOP base, probably yes. You see, the GOP-run House Penguin has spoken (here from Daily Kos), and I can't stop laughing.  The headlines: 

Gowdy: "That scheming Hillary caused our public humiliation"

As I said, in all cases like this, the GOP base will assume that since one of their “leaders” has spoken, it must therefore be true ... or as Pharaoh Ramses I mandated (in the movie at least) when he banished Moses:  “So let it be written, So let it be done.”

Welcome to Loony "Ben" America: Guns #1 Topic as if Nothing Else Matters

[​IMG]    [​IMG]    [​IMG]

[​IMG]    [​IMG]

Hey, Dr. Ben Carson - I watched you on Meet the Press (Sunday, October 25, 2015) and I have to say that no one and I mean no one is advocating or has advocated taking “away our guns...”

I greatly dislike the NRA and I used to have a life membership (no more) – their tactics are narrow and selfish. I also dislike radical gun advocates in general who are inflexible. And, I would not change one single word in that poorly written (grammar-wise) Second Amendment (we need to clarify the militia part); but we for sure need sanity where insanity now rules the topic and where rationality has taken a back seat to these kinds of Americans we see all over the place.

This is and has always been my position on guns, but I must still ask regarding the photos above all across America:


I say: None whatsoever....​

Gowdy Benghazi Committee (Witch Hunt for Hillary's Head): Did You Check This, Too

Based on his words, not mine, I ask:  “Will the Gowdy witch hunt committee address this, I wonder?” 

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) acknowledged that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010 (at least 3-4 times the record shows).

CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked (click here for the actual clip) the Utah Republican if he had “voted to cut the funding for embassy security.”

He said: “Absolutely. Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have… 15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”

Hey, Rick Perry – how about one of your infamous “oops” right about now, okay?  
One word: disgusting to say the least.

Gun Violence is "Mental Health" Issue Says 99.999% of GOP: Check the Nearest Mirror

Michael Savage - Radio Nitwit and Blowhard
(who loves T-rump)

T-rump 2 Thumps Up for Savage
(mutual love affair)

First up is Savage saying from the Daily Caller, here in part:  Winston Churchill’s back — and this time he’s the classiest of class acts. 

At least so says radio talk show host Michael Savage, who praised Donald Trump as the “Winston Churchill of our time” during the real estate billionaire’s appearance on Savage’s radio show back in July. Savage, who said he is supporting Trump’s presidential candidacy, talked voter identification laws, immigration and the Iran nuclear deal with the man who is currently leading most Republican presidential primary polls.

Now, T-rump (name I call him) returns the favor - here from Media Matters:
National Institutes of Health (NIH) - Turning Discovery Into Health

Battle Hymn of the Republic (ans): Delivered by Paul "Marathon" Ryan

Original Lyrics in 1861, then Published in 1862

Modern Version Every Time a GOP Bill Comes Up for Debate

Short and sweet: This man for Speaker of the GOP Louse? *GMAFB* ... Consider:

In 2010, Ryan specifically said he would not vote against something “then write to the government to ask them to send us money… I did not request any stimulus money.”

In reality, Ryan penned at least five letters to two Federal departments seeking grants under Obama’s Recovery Act.

Talking to a reporter later in Ohio, Ryan again said, “No, I never asked for stimulus” (even though he got called out for telling this same lie).

Hoping to make the problem go away, Ryan even later said in a prepared statement that he “didn’t recall” his efforts, because they (the requests) were “… treated as constituent service requests.”

I can't stop laughing. Yeah, that Paul Ryan.

* GMAFB: Give Me a Frickin' Break

Crazy Gun Laws We Worried About Are Now in Our Collective Face

The Most Infamous Quote of All

When this more common scene

Becomes this Recent Scene
(back away from that item a-hole - I saw it first -)

From this national story from Daily Kos here, in part:

The woman who drew her pistol and opened fire at a Home Depot, as it turns out (and not surprisingly) was that she was not being personally threatened when she fired at the alleged shoplifter running from the store…!!

[My insert: no shit Sherlock] … Thousands if not millions of us who advocate of common sense gun rules knew something like would happen and it did and believe it: it will happen again – fear does sell and a gun makes one feel empowered to be a Rambo or citizen “cop” or whatever – they are not…

Police confirmed on Wednesday that a concealed pistol license (CPL) holder was not being threatened by a fleeing shoplifter when she decided to fire multiple shots at him in a Home Depot parking lot.

And experts interviewed Wednesday doubted the shooting could have been justified. [I might add: That might land her in jail and it should, or some very stiff penalty. What if some innocent bystander had been shot, or worse, shot and killed]?  

Here are a couple of choice bits from the reporting by the Detroit Free Press on this story:

1.  To use a concealed weapon in Michigan, a CPL holder needs to think that there is an imminent danger of death, great bodily harm or sexual assault, or think there is a similar danger to someone else, said Rick Ector, a firearms trainer who runs Legally Armed Detroit. He added that a gun is “truly a tool of last resort.”

2.  “In that situation personally, there’s no way I would be shooting my gun,” said another instructor, Dawn Martin, with the Kalamazoo-based Viper Security Enforcement Inc.

3.  “It’s my worst nightmare as a CPL instructor,” said Doreen Hankins, owner of Detroit Arms, which holds CPL classes. “You have to know the entire situation before you pull that handgun out.  I don’t see that a shoplifter at Home Depot fills any of those criteria.” 

Hankins, further said about the shooting and CPL holders, “None of it makes sense. Even if it were law enforcement, they wouldn’t do that. You are not a police officer. You are not a person out there protecting the public at large.” [I and millions agree and have raised this very concern and especially with more and more asinine right to open carry laws].

Imagine it were you running to your car after getting an emergency call and a shopper saw you running - and they shot you. A simple “Rick Perry oops” would not suffice – and that is my point.

Three Cheers for Congress and Staunch Gun Lovers: Hip, Hip, Boo Hoo

NRA Long Ago in a Far, Far Away Place

NRA and Backers Today

Congressional Reaction to Any Rational Gun Control Talk

President Obama gave great remarks following the latest mass shooting on campus in Oregon – his words have meaning, I wonder who is listening?

An excellent article here from Vox.com ... some editing and inserts by me to fit the blog (and with no malice whatsoever). The Vox message is just as clear as intended, and their lead-in sentence is catchy: “The federal government is willfully ignorant about guns.” More from the main site:
“When you don't know enough about something, your reaction is probably to research it — on Google, on Wikipedia, at the library. The federal government is supposed to respond in a similar way when it has questions about certain laws and policies. So if there's a public health crisis, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is usually charged with looking into the matter by funding studies and research that look into the best policies to deal with the issue.”
The kicker as it were: “Back in 1996, Congress approved a budget restriction that stated, "None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control." The ban remains to this day, and it was later extended to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), another federal agency that studies public health issues.”
“The ban was originally intended to stymie advocacy work in favor of gun control, its supporters say. But the CDC, concerned of any political backlash, effectively halted all significant research on gun violence. And Congress has held the ban in place for the past couple of decades.”

“As a result, CDC research funding for gun violence fell by 96 percent between 1996 and 2012. Further, major public research funding for gun violence prevention is estimated at $2 million annually, yet by contrast, in 2011, NIH devoted $21 million to the study of headaches.” As they say, go figure.
“The ban doesn't apply to some agencies, like the National Institute of Justice, but it does apply to two big research arms of government, seriously curtailing the amount of money that can flow to studying gun violence. Public health researchers argue it's stopped more scientists from entering the field, since there's a good chance they may not be able to get the resources they need to conduct studies on gun violence.”

Directly related here and published by the Washington Post of an excellent research report on data collected by Mother Jones looking back at the weapons used in the last 30 years of mass shootings in the U.S. show that legal weapons are the norm and excellent chart to see.

I conclude: “Lock and load” and “Rock and Roll” and all thanks the NRA and other such 100% “guns for everyone, all the time, and any place they choose openly carry advocates” – give them a big round of applause – please take a bow, and thank you so much (tongue in cheek summation).  

Thanks for stopping.

GOP Benghazi Hearings Had One Goal: Not the Truth, Just Smear Hillary Clinton

Absolutely a True Statement and this GOP Proves It 
(again and again and again)

Man in the Middle or On the Hot Seat (whatever)
(Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)

The next speaker of the House and by extension, 2nd in line for the Presidency: Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) (or is it Joe McCarthy (R-MN)? Hard to tell the diff sometimes, said on national TV today:

Clip here from MSNBC News (about 6 minutes) – Mr. McCarthy’s words, not mine:

“Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she's un-trustable. But no one would've known any of that had happened had we not fought and made that happen.”

Not much diff between old Joe McCarthy and young Kevin McCarthy or their ideas, aims, remarks, and goals.  

In essence Kevin McCarthy confessed openly on national TV “... that the committee set up to look into the deaths of the four Americans in Benghazi was really out to taint Hillary Clinton and her poll numbers prove it." 

Thus in reality, the committee was and remains, I guess, one huge taxpayer-funded sham and fraud.

Kind of hard to dispute his words… as DEMS have said all along… as they say, “The truth always shows up when you least expect it.” 

Now sit back and watch the fallout – if any all – that or watch the GOP PR spin machine in action, just like an old-time 3-D movie: Dodge, Duck, and Deny.

Weasels Work Overtime to Impede Women's Heath Care Decisions

It's Real - Never Doubt It 
(and getting more blatant and complex)

GOP Strong on Defense and Strong Against Women
(their latest stealth weapon - actually not so new)

Hot Off the Press as It Were;

Beside most well-known efforts in budgets like against Planned Parenthood, there are more ways national “leaders” work hard to deny or ban reproductive rights as seen here.

1.  Banning abortions after 20 weeks: In an attempt to avoid a government shutdown while still giving national lawmakers a chance to air their anti-abortion sentiments, Republicans recently advanced a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bill is based on the much-debated concept that a fetus can feel pain after a certain amount of gestation time in the womb, even though scientific evidence suggests that fetuses don’t feel pain until after the point of viability, which occurs later. While it passed in the House, Senate Democrats quashed the bill.

2.  Defunding Planned Parenthood for one year: The House passed a standalone bill seeking to defund Planned Parenthood for a one-year period — which would eliminate roughly $255 million in federal funds for the organization, according to the Congressional Budget Office. 
Earlier this month, CBO released data illustrating how the federal savings would likely burden the low-income women who would be cut off from reliable sources of health care. If this defunding became permanent, CBO said it could deprive as many as 650,000 women of access to health care. President Obama said he would veto this bill.

3.  Prohibiting research on human fetal tissue: A July bill introduced by House Representatives proposes to ban the use of all human fetal tissue from abortions in research. This is the only national bill proposed that directly targets the actual issue conservatives said they have with the Planned Parenthood videos: The use of fetal tissue recovered from abortions in scientific research. 
Leading scientists have said that pulling the plug on this type of research would have catastrophic effects on crucial medical studies and the patients they address. Fetal tissue has played a major role in creating vital vaccines, aiding research in new ways to treat a host of degenerative diseases, and even helping defend an unborn child in the womb from illness.

4.  Incarcerating doctors who mishandle live-birth abortions: The House and Senate both recently introduced bills penalizing doctors involved in live-birth abortions who fail to give “appropriate care” to the baby, and the House passed the measure. Under this legislation, doctors could be sentenced to five years in prison if they don’t administer lifesaving treatment to fetuses that are born alive after attempted abortions — an implicit way of suggesting that abortion providers like Planned Parenthood are currently breaking the law. 
The ACLU says this broad legislation, which is misleadingly titled the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,’’ is another tactic to “intimidate abortion providers and drive them out of practice.”

5.  Banning dismemberment abortions: NJ Rep. Chris Smith (R) introduced a bill that would prohibit fetal “dismemberment abortions” — a dramatized term for the most common way to perform a surgical abortion after the first trimester. The WHO says this technique, medically referred to as “D&E: Dilation and Evacuation” is the safest and most efficient way to conduct a later abortion. Bans have already been enacted in Kansas and Oklahoma while a few other states may soon follow suit.

Still there are those who say: "There's no GOP War on a Woman’s Right to Choose and Make Her Own Health Care Decisions.” 

Okee, dokee, then …
