The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

South Dakota Bans Most Abortions [AP]

The bill would make it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless the procedure was necessary to save the woman's life. It would make no exception for cases of rape or incest but such victims could get emergency contraception.

Under the new law, doctors could get up to five years in prison for performing an illegal abortion.

And South Dakota, the little state that could, hands the Supreme Court the golden ticket to reverse Roe v. Wade in our lifetime. Quick, everyone, take a picture!

The NJ State Legislature Strikes Again! a.k.a. Trenton is known for pork roll, but this is ridiculous. Let's violate a person's right to privacy and freedom of speech in the name of Esteem Legislation!

SYNOPSIS: Makes certain operators of interactive computer services and Internet service providers liable to persons injured by false or defamatory messages posted on public forum websites.

...2. The operator of any interactive computer service or an Internet service provider shall establish, maintain and enforce a policy to require any information content provider who posts written messages on a public forum website either to be identified by a legal name and address, or to register a legal name and address with the operator of the interactive computer service or the Internet service provider through which the information content provider gains access to the interactive computer service or Internet, as appropriate.

3. An operator of an interactive computer service or an Internet service provider shall establish and maintain reasonable procedures to enable any person to request and obtain disclosure of the legal name and address of an information content provider who posts false or defamatory information about the person on a public forum website.

4. Any person who is damaged by false or defamatory written messages that originate from an information content provider who posts such messages on a public forum website may file suit in Superior Court against an operator or provider that fails to establish, maintain and enforce the policy required pursuant to section 2 of P.L., c. (C.) (pending before the Legislature as this bill), and may recover compensatory and punitive damages and the cost of the suit, including a reasonable attorney's fee, cost of investigation and litigation from such operator or provider.

The World Bank is transferring $42 million to the Palestinians, even though the world itself owes Israel $23 billion. Though you may not hear about it, the bombings haven't stopped in Israel. Olmert's answer? Give more land to the Palestinians who are already being funded by the E.U., receiving moral support from Russia and France, and getting bombing tips from Al Qaeda. Oh, and if you've ever wondered about the Nazi/Arab connection, the latest move by Hamas in the "Palestinian Parliament" should leave no room for doubt in your mind-- at least if you're at all familiar with German politics circa 1933.

But Shanah, a democratic election will "moderate" Hamas, remember? Let's give peac--I mean, moderation a chance. It's worked so well in the past...I mean just a few car bombs here, a bus bomb there, a few kidnappings sprinkled in for fun. palestinian moderation is really a sight to behold.

Now, this is what I call moderation. And this is why Israel is the Sexiest Democracy of the Year in my book.

(At this point I would like to go on record stating that I always said there wasn't one ugly soldier in the IDF.)
