  1. These RWNJs have completely lost their minds, and any sense of decency. You were right, Rebecca, they are waging a war against women, on all fronts.

    Any argument against free birth control is completely artificial, in every way (also, in many cases, it is just eliminating the copay).

    We can only hope that if we give these morons enough rope,that they will finally hang themselves,but jeeze,how much more friggin’ rope will it take!
