This Alaskan state senator must be out of his mind!
State Sen. Pete Kelly apparently wants women to take PREGNANCY TESTS before they drink at bars to try and curb the amount of babies with fetal alcohol syndrome. He wants the state to fund these bar administered pregnancy tests, too!
It's like he has no idea when April Fool's Day is, because this HAS to be a joke!
Here's what he said:

The state of Texas has just put the final approval on House Bill 2, which will ban abortions at 20 weeks and put some of the strictest regulations on abortion clinics and facilities in the entire country.
The House voted 98-49 to pass the Bill by a huge margin, and it must be approved once more at a later date to move on to the Senate.
Supporters of the Bill argue that it will help protect women and their unborn children while those opposed to it say it will make it nearly impossible for women to get treatment and force them to seek "black market" alternatives.

While on a recent trip to Capitol Hill, Jillian Michaels spoke with Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein about cosponsoring a bill that would ban the slaughter of horses in America.
PETA's Vice President Dan Mathews was there as well, lending his voice to the issue.
They all retreated to Sen. Boxer's office to talk more about the bill that would make it illegal to kill horses for their meat but also they discuss the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act.

We LOVE being able to bring you guys news like this!
In our political climate right now, we're getting more and more excited about the number of people holding government positions who are publicly supporting gay rights and gay marriage! To us, it's reflecting a shift in not only the beliefs within the offices held, but also a shift in how those beliefs are handled!
Being loud and proud about your view to support equality is the best way, because you're not cowering in fear of losing votes by standing up for your fellow humans! This is why we're applauding Senator Claire McCaskill!
Claire decided it was high time that she stand up for love, so she posted this on her tumblr:

No, Ashley Judd is not set to star in another political thriller; she's looking towards the real deal!
Gossip about the A-lister and social activist's plans to run for U.S. senate has been spreading faster than peanut butter and jelly, but it is now being predicted that she will in fact be announcing her Democratic nomination this May!
Even though the Missing star has yet to officially confirm the announcement, a source from MSNBC anticipates that Ashley will go up against Republican minority Mitch McConnell for the powerful position.
In a statement over the weekend, the actress said:

And the dramz just got crazier!
After being accused of throwing a racial slur and threats at a New York reporter and photographer, Alec Baldwin is under fire in more ways than one.
Not only is Alec under investigation for the incident as a harassment claim has been filed, New York State Senator Malcolm Smith is going after the actor as well.
Oooh, doesn't he know Alec doesn't like to be messed with?!
Clearly he's not afraid because he is going after the actor in a BIG way as he’s asking for Alec to be blacklisted from Hollywood until he gets help. Malcolm commented:
