This is almost too scary for words. And to think that people like him actually have a say in what decisions are being made at the highest political level.

Former Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay told a gathering of College Republicans that a link exists between legal abortion and illegal immigration in America.

Question:
What do the United States, Lesotho, Liberia, Swaziland, and Papua New Guinea have in common?

Answer:
They were the only countries out of 173 studied that didn't guarantee any paid leave for mothers. Among the 168 countries that do, 98 offer 14 or more weeks of paid leave.

A win win win situation:

Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border,
Use the dirt to raise the levies in New Orleans
Put the Florida alligators in the moat.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?
Just in case this has passed you by (yay for my friends, because this was the 5th time someone pointed me to it!), the House voted to eliminate funding for NPR and PBS. Again. So, sign the petition telling Congress to save NPR and PBS again this year:

It only takes a minute to sign. And no, it's not a hoax. I only wish...
