(Fact-free Five at 5ive) Michael Moore is the one to blame for gun violence!
As many of you know, I think that there is a war on Democracy by theocrats in which women are one of the major fronts.
- The War on Women, cont. - "A Catholic priest in Italy has created a firestorm by claiming that women bring violence on themselves by serving cold food and dressing provocatively." Because no one knows women like celibate men. (Raw Story)
- The War on Women, cont. - The Xristian Xrazies behind Googly-Eyes-By-The-Pound, bored-housewives emporium Hobby Lobby have decided out of the Xristian Xrazie goodness of their hearts to take a $1.3M daily fine rather than comply with the law and allow their employees to have access to family planning paid for by their insurance. "U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton ruled that Hobby Lobby was not entitled to the constitutional protections for faith-based institutions in matters of principal. A chain of hobby stores, however pious their owners, Heaton said, does not qualify as a religious institution." (Raw Story)
- Abolish the Senate - Sweet Jeebus, Bob Corker (Tenn.) and Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) have decided that the thing to do in the debt ceiling hostage taking is to demand eligibility changes (ie, you will be much, much older before you can retire) to Medicare and Social Security. Oh, also chained CPI (read "Eat Catfood"), and also create private alternatives, because daddy wants some sweet, sweet public cash. (The Hill)
