    “Meanwhile, the landlord argued that Leo was at fault because she “had let the attacker in,” even though he was holding a gun in her face. “

    Did the Republican party hire the same marketing team that came up with “Yorkie: it’s not for girls” ?

    Why would any self-respecting woman be a part of the Republican party anymore? I was a Republican years ago because I liked the idea of smaller government, but I quit when I realized that they were too full of religious extremists and selfish idiots.

    Being a Minnesotan who is somewhat civically engaged, I’m not surprised the Republicans are trying to push this through. It seems to me that their solution is to just stop people from making money. They recently tried to push through a bill to make state employees take a 15% paycut. Luckily it didn’t even make it past committee. I don’t think this bill will make it through either.
