Over the past several weeks, thousands of Texas activists have been protesting their GOP-controlled legislature's decision to push through a controversial package of abortion restrictions. Nonetheless, the anti-abortion bills are successfully advancing.

Just in case you don't know, this is what Archie Bunker meant when he said, Dingbat. She didn't "miss speak" she actually thought she was offering some brilliant insight.

If you are a late night comedian and just beginning to miss Michelle Bachmann, don't worry Jodie Laubenbery is here.

“We’re going to save on the non-babies that are being born? We’re going to prevent baby births?” Laubenberg responded. “This has got to be government math.”

Just how many non-babies are born in Texas each year? And what exactly ARE they? Just looking at her, I see Ann Coulter, without the wit, a woman who thrives on male attention and has found that by behaving like a complete fool and doing the bidding of the boys behind ALEC gets her what she craves most. Men being nice to her to her face, lord know what even the conservative loons say about her behind her back.

Maybe the GOP could be - what's the word - bamboozled into running her for Governor against Wendy Davis?

I know it was rhetorical, Gene, but from what I gather, Laubenberg's definition of "non-babies" are the fetuses belonging to women living in poverty. These fetuses under her legislation will have no right to pre-birth care, but we're not to worry because they will still have the right to carry concealed weapons. Better, there's the increased possibility that these gun-toting non-babies will be able to shoot their way out of the womb, claim their perinatal care and eliminate their welfare sucking mothers in the process. It's all very simple when you don't use government math.

Idiocy running rampant in the state which wanted to ban the teaching of creative thinking. Obviously so the wingnuts don't have the ability to see just how ignorant their conservative lawmakers are.

That's wicked good creative thinking Christina. Though creative thinking is not allowed in Texas.

"“In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out,” Laubenberg claimed on the House floor, suggesting that rape kits include an optional abortion procedure. In fact, rape kits collect DNA evidence that could be useful in a criminal investigation, and are completely unrelated to pregnancy."

"She argued that low-income pregnant women shouldn’t get government-sponsored prenatal care because their fetuses aren’t born yet."

Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (R), isn't the brightest person around. Her intelligence and speaking abilities is
just a cut above an outhouse crapper. Her district really needs to boot this "crapper" out of office.

Ty, Carrie.

Arggghh - where do these women like Palin, Bachman and this twit keep coming from? Obviously, they have been growing in pods deep in basement laboratories and are slowly replacing REAL women....

She argued that low-income pregnant women shouldn’t get government-sponsored prenatal care because their fetuses aren’t born yet.

+++++++++++++ Another example of a mindless TWIT trying to have it both ways, enjoying the spotlight while she meddles in other peoples' business!

I'm for standardized sterile and fully-functional facilities, properly licensed doctors and assistants, hospital privileges available ... it's not just about abortion but the health of the remaining live human being.

This question must be asked, repeatedly, over and over again.
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH CONSERVATIVE WOMEN?
Don't they know when they are being played?

Ms. Laubenberg has been duped into doing the bidding for the male conservatives. She, as well as her cohorts, are being told what to do and say, otherwise, she would not permit males to dictate what she can and cannot do with her life and her body.
How weak minded and/or brain washed can females, or anyone else for that matter, be?
This religion card that the Tea Party and ultra-conservatives play is REAL CUTE. Only the most gullible would fall for it. They don't speak for god any more than I do.

I guess, some women, just need someone to tell them what to think and what to do.
Isn't it a shame?

So many good...and some funny...comments above. I can only add that my focus is on ALEC and their ratings. All these legislators are working to gain high marks with ALEC on various issues. This, in turn, relates to how much campaign contributions they will get for their next election to keep their seat. (ALEC="god"). They are trying to outdo each other to gain more points from ALEC. So, why don't the Dems have a system like this?
Or, maybe they do....When I donated $15 to Alan Grayson a couple years ago, I received a "Thank You" from Act Blue. I found out this is a cumulative system that pools the money and then doles it out later. I didn't even know for sure if my $15 went to Grayson. The Dem party has several "pools" like this. I'm just curious as to what their standards are for doling out that money....
I loved that word Kit came up with....dingbat! Somewhere Archie Bunker is smiling.
Some of the words I can come up with for Laubenberg are unfit to print here. ;)

Why do so many loonies get into politics in the US, doesn't that indicate a sick society, another example being the acquittal of Zimmerman. Disgusting.
