    [Pales in comparison with the Shia compliant society Barry would love to introduce here. How's that "Hope and Change" look to ya now?]

    "Egypt’s New Islamist-Led Parliament To Legalize Men Having Sex With Dead Wives For Up To Six Hours After Death, Allow Girls To Marry At 14-Years Old…

    And it is Sharia compliant.

    (Daily Mail) — Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives — for up to six hours after their death.

    The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

    It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment."

    WASHINGTON -- Congressional Democratic leaders have found another venue to hit Republicans for their so-called war on women: the debate over student loan costs.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday slammed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for proposing on Wednesday to keep down the costs of student loan interest rates by pulling money from what he called "one of the slush funds in the president's health care law." He was referring to the Prevention and Public Health Fund, which contains billions of dollars aimed at encouraging people to take better care of themselves, thereby saving money down the road.

    Student loan rates are set to double to 6.8 percent in July. Democrats have proposed covering the estimated $6 billion cost by closing a tax loophole that lets certain wealthy people avoid paying Medicare taxes, while Republicans have settled on nixing the preventative health fund. The House is set to vote on the GOP plan on Friday. Democratic leaders are whipping their members to oppose it.

    "He's calling it a slush fund," Pelosi said of Boehner's proposal during a press conference. "Well, it may be a slush fund to him, but it's survival to women. It's survival to women. That just goes to show you what a luxury he thinks it is to have good health. We do not agree."

    What more proof do you need that you are brainwashed than you will only believe news you get from Rush/Drudge/Fox?

    And if CBS, CNN & ABC are liberal, how come they aren't saying the same things you hear from us liberals on USMB? Like GW lied us into war, for example. Or that the GOP are purposely bankrupting the post office. If they are liberal, why aren't they asking the tough questions? Wake up.

    So far the left has shown women 100 ways the GOP are attacking women and all the right has is one woman on the Democratic side said that the $250 million dollar Ann Romney never worked a day in her life.

    Isn't that true? Remember you guys bashed the Dixie Chics for saying the truth? But then you aren't boycotting Ted Nugent for his treasonist remarks? What hypocricy.

    Students loan rates will double because the Democrat controlled congress wanted it that way and they conveniently decided that the increase would happen during an election year. Now they are pretending to be outraged at their own legislation, just so they can convince people they care. It's their favorite tactic of creating a problem so they can rush in and fix it and look like the heroes.

    Meanwhile, not one Democrat will dare speak ill of any Muslim law. They are the most oppressive ever and the Democrats chose them as the first religion they would stand up for. None of them will say a word against them, no matter how many anti-women laws they create and they also want to live by their Sharia law even when they live in America. I would think NOW would be out there having a fit because Muslim men are oppressing their women like this.

    You don't know about the GOP's plan to privatize the Post Office and steal that fat pension? You are underinformed and/or misinformed. Show me what news you got on this subject and then I will counter. We will see who's swallowing bullshit.

    Oh so you think this is an issue we just now manufactured? Then how do you explain this op ed from 2007?

    And, most tragically, Reagan's tax cuts caused America to stop investing in infrastructure.

    We even stopped investing in the intellectual infrastructure of this nation: college education. A degree that a student in the 1970s could have paid for by working as a waitress at a Howard Johnson's restaurant now means incurring massive and life-altering debt for all but the very wealthy. Reagan, who as governor ended free tuition at the University of California, put into place the foundations for the explosion in college tuition we see today.
