Texas Anti-Abortion Bill Shot Down After Marathon Filibuster Falls Short!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik

wendy davis filibuster falls short but texas anti abortion bill shot down

A bill that would have put heavy restrictions on abortions in the state of Texas was declared dead early this morning, but it wasn't without its fair share of drama!

Senator Wendy Davis was at the center of it all yesterday when she attempted a 13-hour filibuster to block any voting on the bill. However, her effort fell three hours short after she was given third strike for violating rules when it was determined she had gone off topic!

See the controversial and INSANE final 10 minutes of the special session AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Bill Nye Has To Defend Global Warming Again

Filed under: TV NewsScience!

Bill Nye was forced to explain global warming to a conspiracy theorist while on Piers Morgan Tonight.

A man was arguing that even though global CO2 levels are rising, it's not changing the climate.

Even though basically every scientist in the whole world agrees it totally is.

This isn't the first time Bill has had to step in and tell folks how it really is.

Thanks for doing your part to save the human race, Bill!

Check out the video (above) to hear a man try and argue against the most awesome Mr. Nye.
