    Missouri Senator Roy Blunt puts on a new stunt, he put the contraceptive bill in with the transportation bill. It will not pass the senate and be able to create jobs. Don't vote for Blunt send him back to his farm, that he probably gets money for but does not farm.

    What the hell is wrong with these people. This contraception fight has got to be one of the stupidest ever. Can you imagine what the population of this planet would be right now, if there were no contraception ?

    Politicians do things beyond comprehension of us commoners, most time. They are a species all to themselves to the misfortune of those they govern.
    @ bobcat
