We cant do that. Wed have to lock up the sheep.

Okay, so some fancy pants writer in Colorado has a supposed solution for the way the Texas Legislature treated women this legislative session, especially the 24 hour wait period before a woman can get a perfectly legal abortion.

He thinks we need a moratorium on sparkin’.

Clearly there’s only one answer for this kind of Texas trash. Time to put a 24-hour hold on sex among Texans in the first place. For those Texans feeling amorous, they should be required to see their doctor or clergy, where they will be examined to determine levels of fertility. Then, they’ll be counseled about the problems of unplanned pregnancy and told that government programs may exist to help them with issues surrounding abstinence. Finally, they’ll be instructed that they cannot consummate their romantic notions for 24 hours.

We can’t do that. We’d have to lock up the sheep.
