Well, these Rethuglican, tea-baggin’ wingnuts are all busy trying to, well, out-wingnut each other. Recently, in South-Dakota, an insane bill some would feverishly love to see tabled. So insane and unbelievable, well, I’ll just take a direct quote from the above link, because I certainly couldn’t make it sound believable.
The bill stated, “Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person while resisting any attempt to murder such person, or to harm the unborn child of such person in a manner and to a degree likely to result in the death of the unborn child.”
More about the bill here, sponsored by Rep Phil Jensen:
“If this bill passes, in theory it would allow a woman’s father, mother, son, daughter or husband to kill anyone who tried to provide that woman with an abortion. It’s a license to kill abortion providers,” said Gibson, D-Huron.
Gibson also feared that the language in the bill would allow extremists to kill abortion doctors and then claim they did so to protect an unborn child.
Imagine, if such a bill passed, perhaps Scott Roeder would be unleashed amongst the masses, leading his life without a care in the world.
I had also seem a proposed bill, repealing child labour laws. I don’t think I need to cover that again. Just click the link for the gory details.
Now, someone may just have out-wingnutted these tea-baggers, or at the very least, are rivaling them for top prize. Meet Georgia State Representative, Bobby Franklin R (of course) – Marietta. Boys ‘n’ girls, he is a gem! And he has two very scary, idiotic bills for the price of one to propose.
Let’s start with the first one that is crazy. No more pesky, restrictive drivers’ licenses!
they “are a throw back to oppressive times.” As CBS reported:
In his bill, Franklin states, “free people have a common law and constitutional right to travel on the roads and highways that are provided by their government for that purpose. Licensing of drivers cannot be required of free people, because taking on the restrictions of a license requires the surrender of an inalienable right.”
I wonder what he thinks of driving under the influence? I mean, if there are no more licenses to suspend?? Or perhaps driving under the influence wouldn’t be under the criminal code anymore? After all, perhaps breathalyzers would be considered too oppressive and intrusive??
Here’s an even more insidious bill that ol’ Bobby of Marietta, Georgia wishes to propose.
A Georgia Representative has introduced a bill to investigate all unsupervised miscarriages as crimescenes. Don’t believe me? Here’s the relevant language from HB 1, downloadable from legislature’s website:
When a spontaneous fetal death required to be reported by this Code section occurs without medical attendance at or immediately after the delivery or when inquiry is required by Article 2 of Chapter 16 of Title 45, the ‘Georgia Death Investigation Act,’ the proper investigating official shall investigate the cause of fetal death and shall prepare and file the report within 30 days[...]
Really? What the hell is this idiot proposing? If a woman knows she has a risky pregnancy, she’s supposed to hire a nurse or some other medical professional to be around 24/7?? Many Americans can’t even afford basic pre-natal care!!
Really wingnutty! This clown wants to do away with drivers’ licenses because they’re too oppressive, but he wants to implement bills to require intruding on women’s privacy, by basically criminalizing vaginal bleeding??
