The American People Have Spoken [Nov. 9th, 2011|08:15 am]
International Bon Vivant and Raconteur

Mississippi voters rejected the "personhood" amendment that would have effectively criminalized abortion, some methods of birth control, and even in vitro fertilization.

The state senator who wrote Arizona's racially divisive immigration law--which said, in part, that police would be required, during the enforcement of other laws, to check the immigration status of anyone they suspected of being undocumented--lost his seat in a recall election.

Ohio voters repealed the new law limiting the collective bargaining rights of public workers, including police, firefighters, and teachers.

See? Sometimes the market does self-correct.
