“I believe that we live in America. We don’t live in the Soviet Union," Lesko said. "And so government shouldn’t be telling employers, Catholic organizations or mom-and-pop employers to do something that’s against their moral beliefs.”

Birth-control-exclusion bill goes to AZ Senate

Certainly the only thing preventing us from becoming the USSR is our freedom make medical decisions for our employees.

“I must respectfully disagree with a correction, Rep. Williams. In the song, it was the officer who said, “Aren’t you sharp as a tack?” or something. “You should try for lawyer or something,” so I got you on that. It’s an unspoken rule, if you’re going to invoke Jay-Z, you must get the lyrics correct. I’m not sure Jay-Z would support this amendment.”

Florida Speaker Dean Cannon also gets it wrong.

Wisconsin state senator Glenn Grothman went on the Alan Colmes show on Friday to discuss a controversial new bill he authored that would require the state’s Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to officially label single parenthood as “a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.”
The bill was seen as a slap in the face to single parents in Wisconsin, who are raising 31 percent of children in the state.
Grothman told Colmes that the country’s out-of-wedlock birth rate is the “choice of the women,” who should be “educated that this is a mistake.” When Colmes countered with statistics about the high number of pregnancies that are unintended, Grothman said that many women are “trained” to lie and say that they’re pregnancies are unintended

I remember as a child when the boys and girls were separated, they’d tell the boys about erections and train the girls to lie about their pregnancies.

Brent Bozell, the president and founder of the conservative Media Research Center, has launched a website in support of Rush Limbaugh in the wake of fallout over his attack on Sandra Fluke, because, as Bozell says, “this isn’t about what Rush said last week, it’s about roaring hypocrisy and it’s about censorship.”
Limbaugh apologized on Saturday for calling Fluke “a slut” on his show last week, after she spoke out on the Obama administration’s birth control mandate for religious employers. Bozell, who referred to the ensuing controversy as “the pickle our friend Rush Limbaugh has been in,” launched istandwithrush.org to show support for the embattled host, who Bozell says “has been singled out and condemned across the board by the national media.”

Now that over a dozen companies have bailed on Rush Limbaugh after he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” on air, a couple of new companies are swooping in to buy up that abandoned air time. AshleyMadison.com, the dating site that helps people cheat on their significant others, has offered to buy up all of Limbaugh’s existing ad inventory. The company’s founder and C.E.O. Noel Biderman, who’s already shown himself to be a deft grabber of publicity, said in a press release, “Rush has always been a controversial figure and we have always been a controversial service so we can relate.”

Now, what is said on the campaign trail, you know, those folks don’t have a lot of responsibilities. They are not commander-in-chief. And when I see the casualness with which some of these folks talk about war, I’m reminded of the costs involved in war. I’m reminded that the decision that I have to make, in terms of sending our young men and women into battle, and the impact that has on their lives, the impact it has on our national security, the impact it has on our economy. This is not a game, and there is nothing casual about it. And, you know, when I see some of these folks who have a lot of bluster and a lot of big talk, but when you actually ask them specifically what they would do, it turns out they repeat the things that we’ve been doing over the last three years. It indicates to me that that is more about politics than actually trying to solve a difficult problem. Now, the one thing that we have not done is we haven’t launched a war. If some of these folks think that it’s time to launch a war they should say so, and they should explain to the American people exactly why they would do that and what the consequences would be. Those people who are proposing a war, or beating the drums of war, should explain clearly to the American people what the costs and benefits of a war would be. I’m not one of those people,. There is a cost, and sometimes we bear that cost, but we don’t play politics with it. When that decision gets mixed up with politics, that’s when we make mistakes.

Sheriff Joe and his posse of old racists release their findings on Obama’s birth certificate.  Surprise, they say it’s fake

“Based on all of the evidence presented and investigated, I cannot in  good faith report to you that these documents are authentic,” Sheriff Arpaio said. “My investigators believe that the long-form birth certificate  was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in paper  format as claimed by the White House
