Democrat’s war on Moms

While her party supports taxpayer-funded contraceptives for female law students, a top Democrat disses a stay-at-home mother of five who has "never worked a day in her life."

"King" coal is exactly what I was referring to when I mentioned the self-imposition of the stereotype.

BTW: Do you have any more on the mad chickens?

R1KRA8: Good for you, you were aware of something that I wasn't. Give yourself a cookie.

Well, I think I do.

1) We are presumed to be a bunch of hillbillies, unworthy of concern.

2) It is to some degree, self imposed.

One has to wonder: If this had occured elsewhere, say, in NYC, affecting 200-500 thousand people, what would the media coverage entail? AND what would the various government entities responses be?

Didn't know about any such water drive... Such a thing being necessary at this point is further proof of our media's incompetence.

Funny how the same people who complained before the spill, that "the job-killing EPA needs to be eliminated" are now whining about why the EPA didn't prevent the disaster. Go figure.

Seriously though, I know, it's a (real) shame. However, I don't facebook, so I can't look into your suggestion.

Call me crazy, but Al Jazeera-America seems to have the most comprehensive coverage of any pertinent news.

They had more information on the recent chemical spill into the Elk River in WVa than anyone else, bar none.

There is something horribly wrong with that.

BobBarker: MORE legit, yes, but even they (esp NPR) seem to be slipping. More and more, they are succumbing to corporate interests.

Agreed, (as indicated per this topic ).

The question is, what news sites are available anymore that aren't "faux"?

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) revoked his support for the original bill - Should a doctor determine that another form of ultrasound may be necessary to provide the necessary images and information that will be an issue for the doctor and the patient. The government will have no role in that medical decision," he said.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) revoked his support for the original bill just minutes before the House began debate on it, saying that the government did not have the power to require the transvaginal procedure. "Mandating an invasive procedure in order to give informed consent is not a proper role for the state," McDonnell said in a statement. "No person should be directed to undergo an invasive procedure by the state, without their consent, as a precondition to another medical procedure." "For this reason ... I am requesting that the General Assembly amend this bill to explicitly state that no woman in Virginia will have to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound involuntarily. I am asking the General Assembly to state in this legislation that only a transabdominal, or external, ultrasound will be required to satisfy the requirements to determine gestational age. Should a doctor determine that another form of ultrasound may be necessary to provide the necessary i

transvaginal ultrasounds are not a common prenatal procedure and are not used unless there is some additional medical problem that needs closer examination by a doctor.

From med website....

If you are pregnant, ultrasounds are quite common and sensible early on to determine the presence of more than one fetus, and to calculate your due date. Later, an ultrasound helps to check the health of the baby, the location of the placenta, the amount of amniotic fluid around the baby, the baby’s position and to calculate its expected weight at birth. But all these can be determined with a simple topical ultrasound – transvaginal ultrasounds are not a common prenatal procedure and are not used unless there is some additional medical problem that needs closer examination by a doctor.

There are a lot of very good reasons for women of any age to need a transvaginal ultrasound: abnormal cells in a PAP smear, pelvic pain, irregular bleeding that could indicate cysts, fibroid tumors, polyps, twisted ovaries, infections, endometriosis, endometrial hyperplasia, ectopic pregnancies, and even outright cancer. It can even be a useful diagnostic instrument in testing for urinary and kidney disease as well, transvaginal ultrasounds being the best way to obtain the clearest and most detailed internal images possible outside a MRI or CT scan. I’ve had one myself recently, for good medical reasons, and have reason to be grateful such amazing and wonderful technology exists. So it is appalling when something that was designed to promote women’s health and welfare is being abused by politicians to hurt the very people it was meant to help. If you are pregnant, ultrasounds are quite common and sensible early on to determine the presence of more than one fetus, and to calculate y
