Good news! Via Keoland.com:

SIOUX FALLS, SD - A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction, meaning a new abortion law will not go into effect in South Dakota on July 1.

Let's hope the same thing happens in Kansas.

Today's Quickie:

Via Taegan:

Since the recovery began in June 2009, "corporate profits captured 88 percent of the growth in real national income while aggregate wages and salaries accounted for only slightly more than 1 percent" of that growth.

Corporations are humming along, still able to buy elections, underhire, underpay, and undervalue, you know, people. See? Economic recovery!

That was today's Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?

Bachmann Family Clinic may have violated contract: "No religious based counseling"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

My original 2010 post about Marcus Bachmann and his "ungay" clinic. Others here.

Below is a screen grab of an excerpt from the Bachmann & Associates, Inc. clinic overview, the same clinic run by Michele Bachmann's husband, the same clinic that received "big government handouts", the same handouts that Michele denied she and Mr. Michele benefited from.

In the contract with the U.S. government was this provision:

XXIII.3 “GRANTEE agrees that no religious based counseling shall take place under the auspices of this grant.”

Now here is just one excerpt from the "program overview". There are others that are similar:

Oops.

If she and her husband can't adhere to such a simple rule, and if Candidate Michele can't comprehend basic facts and/or rules in general, it's a safe bet to state unequivocally, right here and right now, that she is unqualified to hold the office of president, or vice president... or any other public office, for that matter.

Think Progress has more.
