Assault with a deadly weapon a "right" according to Planned Parenthood
I guess the thrill of killing someone without their knowledge is just part of the sexual pleasure right?

On April 8, 2010, asteroid 2010 GA6 will pass within the Moon’s orbit around the Earth at a miss distance of 0.9 mean lunar distances, 0.0024 Astronomical Units, or about 223,094 miles (359,034 km).
Its diameter is estimated to be between about 56 and 125 feet (17 m – 38 m), and its velocity relative to Earth is approximately 25,338 miles per hour
With an absolute magnitude of 26, you won’t be able to see it with the naked eye.
JPL has revised their orbital plots and they no longer list an impact in 2074, nor even a close approach on that date. They also have changed the date of this year's close approach to tomorrow, 4/9/10, instead of today. But it will still pass inside of the moon's orbit, only about 223K miles away. Now why was the original estimate so far off? I can only presume it was because they only had 19 observations to work from and the error band was still pretty huge. Either that or it really will hit us in 2074 and they don't want to cause a panic...=b

How the Feds cut the coming lawsuit regarding the individual mandate off at the knees.
Individuals who fail to maintain minimum essential coverage in 2016 are subject to a penalty equal to the greater of: (1) 2.5 percent of household income in excess of the taxpayer’s household income for the taxable year over the threshold amount of income required for income tax return filing for that taxpayer under section 6012(a)(1);67 or (2) $695 per uninsured adult in the household. The fee for an uninsured individual under age 18 is one-half of the adult fee for an adult. The total household penalty may not exceed 300 percent of the per adult penalty ($2,085). The total annual household payment may not exceed the national average annual premium for bronze level health plan offered through the Exchange that year for the household size…
The penalty applies to any period the individual does not maintain minimum essential coverage and is determined monthly. The penalty is assessed through the Code and accounted for as an additional amount of Federal tax owed. However, it is not subject to the enforcement provisions of subtitle F of the Code. The use of liens and seizures otherwise authorized for collection of taxes does not apply to the collection of this penalty. Non-compliance with the personal responsibility requirement to have health coverage is not subject to criminal or civil penalties under the Code and interest does not accrue for failure to pay such assessments in a timely manner.
So since nobody is actually to be punished for failing to pay the tax, it will be difficult to claim that anyone has actually been "harmed" by this requirement since it is completely voluntary. Since nobody can claim to have been harmed by this "nonmandate", then there can be no lawsuit.
It's a feature, not a bug.
