Jenn’s Actual Lesson

In honor of the 4th of July this weekend, today’s fun fact is a quote from (non-Christian) founding father John Adams:

We should begin by setting conscience free. When all men of all religions … shall enjoy equal liberty, property, and an equal chance for honors and power … we may expect that improvements will be made in the human character and the state of society.

But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Holy emissary of the Divine Napkin, Gerge Takei

“If this is your God, he’s not very impressive. He has so many psychological problems; he’s so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes. He’s a pretty poor excuse for a Supreme Being.”

Utah, which declared X-rated films a ‘public health crisis,’ gets its first porn-seeking dog – http://nydn.us/28Z9pCv

  • The 16-month-old K–9, named “URL” but pronounced “Earl,” was rescued from a shelter as a puppy and went through half a year of training in Indiana to search for porn.
  • URL’s highly sensitive nose has been trained to sniff out chemical compounds found in thumb drives, phones, SIM cards, SD cards, hard drives, tablets and iPads, the Weber County Sheriff’s office said in a statement.
  • URL learned from the same trainer as “Bear,” the pup who busted ex-Subway pitchman and convicted sex offender Jared Fogle, after sniffing out a hidden thumb drive packed with child pornography.

Dozens of Ignorant Fire-Walkers Injured at Tony Robbins Seminar – http://bit.ly/28ZajPc

  • Dozens of people were injured last night at a Tony Robbins motivation seminar in Dallas — and five of them were hospitalized — after burning themselves during the fire-walking portion of the event
  • Seminar participants walk over a bed of hot coals. If you can do that, the idea goes, you can do anything.
  • But fire-walking is just an illusion.
  • In other words, you shouldn’t stop to take selfies, as some participants reportedly did.
  • This isn’t the first time people have been hurt during the fire-walking segment of a Robbins seminar. In 2012, 21 attendees were injured. Clearly, people haven’t learned their lesson.

Jenn’s Story

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Abortion Opinion Us – http://huff.to/299iThL

TX and other Southern states are probably in the midst of losing their goddamn minds. The Supreme Court ruled as of recording today that H.B. 2 Texas law was unconstitutional.

The 2013 Texas law that the court struck down would have required all abortions to take place in ambulatory surgical centers, or mini-hospitals, instead of regular clinics.

Ginsburg kept her argument simple: Abortions are statistically safer than many simpler medical procedures, including tonsillectomies, colonoscopies, in-office dental surgery and childbirth — but Texas does not subject those procedures to the same onerous requirements.

Given those realities, it is beyond rational belief that H.B. 2 could genuinely protect the health of women, and certain that the law ‘would simply make it more difficult for them to obtain abortions,’ Ginsburg wrote. “When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners … at great risk to their health and safety.

She goes on:

So long as this Court adheres to Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers laws like H.B. 2 that ‘do little or nothing for health, but rather strew impediments to abortion,’ cannot survive judicial inspection.

The Texas abortion law has already shut down about half of the 42 clinics that operated across the state in 2013 before it went into effect, leaving large swaths of rural Texas without any abortion provider. Women without access to safe and legal abortion in the state have already started to buy abortion pills from Mexico and take matters into their own hands.
