    really, they did not say that. Are there lots of women spiking their tampons with anthrax? It seems to me that would be an unwise and stupid way to distribute a toxin by women who might need to use the things in a sensitive area prone to access to the blood stream. but if that is a concern then the actions should have been for all objects that could have been used to harm the legislature including a gun. Your claim does not fit within the actions followed by the authorities in this case.

    All I know is that I am absolutely terrified of tampons now.

It seems that those in charge - Republicans, remember - were afraid that the protesters were going to throw tampons and maxi-pads at them during the debate over the abortion bill debate.

    Really? Guns are allowed in the Texas capitol, but tampons and maxi-pads are not? How long will it take for the Republican rank and file to grasp just how far off the edge of the map their party has gone?

    P.S. NO, this is not The Onion. This is Texas.
    Well, you know the republicans did not think it would hurt them, women with menstrual cycles do not vote republican or are unlikely to do so . They are too old to need tampons or pads, they are pregnant or their husbands had forbidden them to leave the house before the housework was done (being sarcastic here, most republican men would never do that, a lot of female republicans do still have a menstrual cycle, etc.).
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Don't know if this has been posted yet but Erick Erickson of Fox News and Red State blog summed up his thoughts on the abortion bill with this classy tweet:


    Disgusting pig of a man.

If you agree with it, it's truth, if you don't, it's dangerous manipulated propaganda. I can't think of anything more lame.



    Horse-feathers. Why was it in question? Because standing armies are DANGEROUS to domestic peace. And if you read the extensive works (letter, opinions, etc), you'll find that gun ownership is indeed sacred. Why? Because without weapons we are without recourse to defend ourselves against a historical constant of all ages, eras, gov'ts, and men of ambition without a single exception... all gov'ts become tyrannically oppressive to the masses. Again and again and again, by founder after founder, we were warned that we have more to fear from our own gov't and it's army than we do from any foreign power. This hasn't changed in 10,000 years... why do you think it's different now?
    "Standing armies are DANGEROUS to domestic peace"???? Gee, one wonders what would have happened in all the wars where we were the good guys if we hadn't had a standing army. You really think that the West could have won World Wars I and II if we hadn't had standing armies? What about the Korean War?

    What the lack of a standing army means, guy, is that the OTHER nations whose leaders aren't so naive can have their way with you.

    That may be what you FEEL, but the weight of history says you are ignorant. Sorry, blunt I know, but...

    In both WWi and WWII, we had a very very small military prior to declaring war. Massive enlistment drives and the draft were needed to rebuild the army.

    But the fact that you seem completely ignorant of this widely held view of the founders and of their WISDOM in studying ALL gov'ts and civilizations that came before... well... I would suggest you keep reading history.

    I would rather have my gov't fear the people than the people fear their gov't.

    Shall I deluge you with relevant quotes, or do you think you can remove your ignorance on your own?

    If you're threatening to come armed, the idea that they might be used is kind of the point.
