  •  Don't blink (4.00)
    Democrats for "Life" are getting in on the action -- not with death penalty, but introducing a law this week that would prevent parents from transporting minors across state lines to abort a pregnancy.

    (How is it again that they're protecting reproductive rights just because they're Democrats?)

    See the List of Shame (with photos and contact info).

    •  Isn't that Unconstitutional? (3.00)
      infringing on freedom of movement, among other things.

      Sounds a lot like the laws the communists had against leaving East Germany during the Cold war. Of course, fascist Texas would never do such a thing, now would they?

        "Interstate Commerce clause"?  I knew you could.

        Welcome to the hell that your friendly neighborhood Congress has brought to you, courtesy of the power to regulate interstate commerce.  Yes, Virginia, that proposed legislation is at the FEDERAL level.

        Sadly, this isn't the first, nor the last, time that they will have screwed you over in pursuit of the greater glory of the centralized state.

        Don't be discouraged, however, as Armando has plenty of examples of how other people got screwed thanks to our ever expanding notions of what this clause means.  (Don't forget that the right to life has been extended to the Constitution too!)  Enough examples from both extreme ends of the political spectrum that you're bound to be happy with at least some of the outcomes.

        Unless you're opposed to statism, that is.

        •  Opposed to Statism? (none)
          Come on. Laughable. Really.

          If you want a libertarian paradise, I suggest you check out Somalia. You might want to read up on Hobbes, too, though you sound pretty Hobbessian to me -- nasty, brutish, and short.
