Thank fucking God.



Or god. Lower-case "g." I think the religious right would be angry angry. Lord's name in vain, after all. Especially considering the circumstances.

Oh, you haven't heard? Well, turns out that the state pharmacy board of Massachusetts has ordered our favorite fucking retail monstrosity, Wal-Mart, to carry emergency contraception in its stores. The reason why they haven't carried it to date? Well, I'm glad you asked:

Wal-Mart now carries the pill only in Illinois, where it is required to do so under state law. The company has said it "chooses not to carry many products for business reasons," but has refused to elaborate.

Shocking how they refuse to elaborate. Kind of how they choose not to elaborate on their employment, benefit and pay practices. Oops.

First sentence didn't really apply to my point, but just wanted to address how my state is superior to Annamaria's state once again.

AWESOME!!!!

However, i cannot argue much about the superiority of michigan this week, when we have ignorance like this elected to office! Sen. Bruce Patterson (R-Canton, MI) resisting
the idea of contraceptive coverage saying “This is a
question of whether I’m going to pay for someone
else’s pleasure.” HELLO!!!!!!! Explain to me how we are not paying for other's people pleasure by paying for Viagra- what other purpose does Viagra serve but to aid in pleasure! Fucking Ignorance!!!

Of course, paying for contraception also pays for curing my debilitating menstrual cramps and someone else's acne (I've been blessed with a flawless complexion, thank you). But these fuckwits never think about anything other than the evil sluts whoring their way through life.

I really like driving on I-75 north of Flint--really pretty, long seemingly endless stretches of road, and often no destination in mind. By Sen. Patterson's calculus, we should stop paying to fix the potholes, too.

wait a sec. Do your enviromentalist liberal friends know you drive aimlessly around wasting gas and creating extra greenhouse gasses simply for your own pleasure? Shhhhh. :)
Welcome back jen.

But, but...it's a compact with really great gas mileage and low emissions! Surely that must count for something!

Damn you, Kurt, for ruining my fun!

so sorry annamaria. I too used to be guilty of those rides back in the day when I lived where there actually were nice things to look at within a few minutes of my home. We called them "stone rides." You're smart. I'm sure you'll figure it out ;)
It was a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
