"Kan. Planned Parenthood receives abortion license":
The new rules from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment tell abortion providers what drugs and equipment they must have on hand, how big some of their rooms must be and the specific temperatures allowed in procedure and recovery rooms. The department is imposing them under a new licensing law that takes effect Friday.
The licensing law is part of an unprecedented surge of anti-abortion legislation that has advanced through Republican-controlled legislatures in many states. Collectively, the measures create an array of new obstacles — legal, financial and psychological — for women seeking abortions and doctors performing them.
Kansas has three abortion providers, all in the Kansas City area, and two of them haven't obtained licenses and can't legally perform abortions until a federal court intervenes. A hearing in a federal lawsuit involving the other providers besides Planned Parenthood was scheduled for Friday in Kansas City.
I'm sorry to dwell on the negative, but we also live in this world: "$100 Million ATM Receipt Found In Hamptons, Said To Belong To David Tepper"
The Wall Street tabloid site DealBreaker.com on Wednesday posted a June 18 ATM receipt from a Capitol One Bank in East Hampton showing an account with an available balance of a whopping $99,864,731.94.
The receipt is reported to have been left in the ATM after the account holder withdrew the cash.
DealBreaker later identified the account holder as David Tepper, a hedge fund manager and founder of Appaloosa Management. The site reports that Tepper joked after withdrawing the money that he "hadn't used an ATM since Lehman."
And we live in this world: Eric Cantor. That's all I want to say about that ass.
My tolerance for nonsense is just completely depleted right now. Some days I can muster it up, but honestly--I just wonder where some smart, compassionate politicians reside. "I want to go to there."
