…can a company have a legal monopoly on a product people are willing to pay huge money, risk fail, and kill to cover their black market turf over…
Here was the MN House vote on the Genital Mutilation bill yesterday.
The bill would – how can I put just the right point on this – hold parents responsible for the genital mutilation of their children, with felony charges against parents who facilitated any of the wide array of culturally-based, barbaric genital mutilation practices.
There were four “no” votes – all DFLers, naturally:
- Rep. Rena Moran (D-St. Paul) who is noted as saying she thought it’d impose on a cultural value, like spanking; Ms. Moran (my “representative”) apparently confuses a swat on the ass with carving up girls’ sex organs.
- Rep. Tina Liebling (D-Rochester), who is running for governor, and believes the law will separate families.
Ilhan Omar and John Lesch – after getting headlines for criticizing author Mary Franson for ostensibly seeking headlines – voted yes.
