LIke, totally. Heh. Howze that working out?

Sure does look unconstitutionally overbroad, though. All they need is an injunction that he can't climb trees. It's truly ironic, in that, if the District did this, the same court engaging in the conduct would likely feel duty-bound to whack the District with a big judgment and attorney fees for violating this guy's civil rights.

it's so obvious now that the “conversation about abortion” in our country has evolved into something like George Orwell's book “1984” and the “doublespeak” thing... where the meaning of words or phrases are completely turned upside-down... the real “war on women” in this country is being waged by the abortion industry:

Actually, Chris, the real war on women has been going on a long time by religious conservatives.
