Since we're all either liberal or (if you're a conservative) pre-medicated, here's a few more gems from the "small-government" set (heavily edited):
"1. Let corporations vote!
In Montana, state Rep. Steve Lavin introduced a bill that would allow corporations to vote in local elections, taking the idea that "corporations are people" to new heights...
2. Criminalize gun control!
In Missouri, state Rep. Mike Leara believes even proposing gun control should be illegal. So he has proposed
legislation that would make it a felony for "any member of the general assembly who proposes a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bear arms, as set forth under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States." ...
3. Birth control is poison
The full state Senate in Oklahoma will take up a measure to allow companies to strip birth control and abortion coverage from employer healthcare plans under a bill that unanimously cleared
the committee level last week.
...The state senator who proposed the bill said the idea came from one of his constituents, identified as Dr. Dominic Pedulla.
..."Part of (women's) identity is the potential to be a mother," Pedulla said. "They are being asked to suppress and radically contradict part of their own identity, and if that wasn't bad enough, they are being asked to poison their bodies."...
4. Read Ayn Rand or stay in high school
The chairman of the education committee in Idaho's Senate introduced a bill earlier this month
that would make students read-and pass a test-on "Atlas Shrugged" as a requirement for a high school diploma.
...Why that book? It "made my son a Republican," he said, then adding, "well, he's not a practicing Republican. But it certainly made him a conservative."...
5. Meanwhile, make the teachers question science
In Kansas, the state Board of Education will vote
on new science standards this year, so the legislative jockeying has begun. A bill before the House Education Committee would make schools include evidence against climate change in science classes.
...If the bill becomes law, it would make it illegal for biology teachers to fail students who write papers against evolution, climate change and other theories with near 100 percent approval in the scientific community..."
