This certainly seems like a win-win situation for everybody except the mother, her unwanted child and the doctor involved…

Dan Savage is concerned that — with Texas quite possibly ripping itself from the federal Medicaid program –neighboring states' medical systems may find themselves faced with an onslaught of proudly-self-sufficient Lone Star refugees.
But, he has a possible solution for the problem…
"So if Texas withdraws from Medicaid we're going to have to secure the border. I'm thinking we're going to need a dang fence running along Texas's borders with New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Maybe an electrified one."
I'm thinking that Mexico might also want to consider building it's own fence to keep the Texans out just south of the one the Texans built to keep the Mexicans out.

If you've been dying to travel to Oklahoma but have put it off for fear that you'd be stoned to death for the crime of adultery, have I got good news for you! Voters in the state have just passed a ballot initiative banning Sharia Law:
Republican Rex Duncan, the sponsor of the measure, called it a "pre-emptive strike" designed to close the door on activist judges "legislating from the bench or using international law or Sharia law."
Finally, Oklahomans can eat pork and drink alcohol! What a relief this must be after all these years.
With 923 precincts reporting, the puzzling initiative appears to be heading for a 70-30 landslide, though I understand a considerable amount of support came from voters who mistakenly thought they were banning Jude Law from the state.

Just another usual day on the U.S. Senate floor…
The feud between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) flared up again Wednesday over Coburn’s objection to a bill protecting sharks.
"Honey, how was work today?"
"Same old, same old. Ya know, continued engaging my political nemesis in protracted trench warfare over a non-controversial bill to protect fish with big teeth. The regular."
"Would you like peas as a side dish with dinner tonight?"
"No! I object to the consumption of peas alongside my roast beef tonight. On this matter, I will not budge!"
