Friday Potpourri And Other Things On My Mind

First of all, this is complete bullshit.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has put together some sort of proposal that allows federal grant recipients (i.e., many many healthcare providers) to deny women access to birth control by re-defining most forms of contraception as abortion.  If you ask me this is bullshit, if you ask Hillary Clinton, it is “an outrageous attempt by the Bush administration to undermine women’s rights.”  Why did I have to read about this on Jezebel first and not through an actual U.S. news outlet? (no disrespect intended to Jezebel…)

If you live in California and you hate your Sprint service, get away now before they change their mind!

The oil companies are having a tough time, just like the rest of America… never mind that Exxon just posted the highest quarterly profits of any U.S. company in any industry… ever.

Following the trend set by my post on how U.S. cops get to do anything they want, the Department of Homeland Security can take any of your stuff if they want to, no questions asked.  And they don’t have to give it back, ever.

NASA found water on Mars — maybe this will convince people that NASA does need to exist after all.

This is why TASERs need to be outlawed immediately.  End police brutality.
