This is none of Congress's business, nor is it the business of anyone else in the government. Yeah, it's a sad story no matter which way it goes, but they need to stay the fuck out of it. But they can't! We live in a "culture of life"! Intervening to save one person all because of, naturally, Jesus. Meanwhile, we're killing thousands of people around the world and plenty more here at home. Wow, what a principled people we are.

"Bipartisan" bill. What fucking ever. This is led by the Republicans, plain and simple. You know, the people who are supposed to be about getting government out of our lives. Even if the Democrats are really supporting this, I mean really supporting it and not doing it because of some image issues, well, they're at least supposed to be the Big Government people. The Republicans, of course, have been both Big Business and Big Government for quite some time now -- at least a couple of decades. No, they don't want to help you with, say, Social Security or health care or a foreign policy that doesn't get everyone to hate us, but they will determine what you can and can't read or hear or masturbate to, they'll determine what you can and can't do with your body (hell, they'll even try and keep you from finding out what you can do with it, as the abstinence drive shows), and they determine when you live and when you die. But as we've seen, they're all too happy to play God. Which is funny, because they say that they really revere another god, one who has made it pretty clear that he doesn't like competition. That sounds like self-righteousness at best and outright hypocrisy at worst, but neither of those could possibly be the case with these fine souls, so I'll have to keep searching for the answers.

Meanwhile, I wish we could remove the feeding tubes of everyone on Capitol Hill. Whatever the fuck that means.
