Carolyn Cain, Utah County Special Ed Teacher and Gun Worshiper Embarrasses Utah

This is why Utah is the laughing stock of the World.

The National Rifle Association countered with “arm the teachers.” Gun clubs claim hundreds of teachers are applying for free weapons training. Two hundred people showed up for a class in West Valley City, Utah, outside Salt Lake City, on December 27, 2012, for example. Not all of the people who took the course were teachers. But some were, including Carolyn Cain, who teaches special education kids in kindergarten to the 6th grade in Utah County, Utah.

Michigan Republicans Want to Control Women’s Vaginas and Voices

I don’t know if anyone else saw the story this week.  In discussing an anti-abortion bill, a legislator in Michigan said

“I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no,’ ” said Brown, D-West Bloomfield

In response, Republicans banned Rep Brown from speaking on the bill.  Such delicate flowers these Republican legislators:

Some male Republican representatives, however, said Brown’s comments were vulgar, “inappropriate” and “offensive.”

“What she said was offensive,” said state Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville.

“It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company,” he said.

From The Detroit News:

Republicans also banned another Democratic woman from speaking on the issue when she tried to introduce legislation regulating vasectomies.

Well, okay then, said the Democratic women.  And planned a performance of The Vagina Monologues for the steps of the state capitol.
