    The bill was introduced and rushed through without allowing testimony or questioning of experts? This is what happens when you elect people whose idea of good governance is a dictatorship.

    This is what you get when you elect morons. Have fun becoming a theocracy, Michigan.

    Both religions and economists want all the new babies they can lay their hands on.

    Open wide and push girls, and think of god and country.

    Each time I think it's OK to look for internships in the US, I read some of your fine news. :rolleyes:

    This is crazy.

    There are many areas of the country that aren't filled with conservative religious morons. Try out the northeast and the west coast to start.

    I always find it difficult to reconcile the Americans I meet and the news stories coming out of the US. I do sometimes wonder if it's all big wind up on the part of the US media and politicians. (On a future April 1st they'll all announce it was all a huge joke.)

    I feel that there's been a lot of good done by Gov. Snyder a Republican/Independent in Michigan, but the issue is he narrowly focuses on the initiatives he wants passed - and lets the whackos on both sides of the aisles push stupid legislation because he's too occupied with his 'more important' goals. He needs to start getting more hands on to put these people in check.

    As someone who's witnessed several Crazy Americans become sane by living in NZ... I don't think so. My friend from Phoenix Arizona was the worst, for the first several years he was going on about how our government should be more like America's.

    Pfffft, don't worry about me then. Our Summer Break falls within your Winter.

    I wonder how they had time to read the bill? I bet they didn't know what was in it. ;)

    The continued ignorance by these Political Dynamos about what Planned Parenthood actually does simply amazes me.

    Let's eliminate abortions AND access to inexpensive birth control. It's an amazing idea that makes total and complete sense. :rolleyes:

    But of course, this war on women is just liberal propaganda. :rolleyes:

    I can't remember exactly how Australia does it. Don't they penalize you if you can afford private health insurance yet don't opt for it?
