WHO NEEDS taxpayer-funded abortions when Kanye West will bankroll the procedure for $50,000-$100,000? It's in a Tweet so it must be true!

VINCE GRAY has formed a 27-member Commission on HIV/AIDS to be helmed by the Mayor and staffed by :"representatives from the medical community, the faith-based community, business communities and the District Government." The commission will work on "recommendations for the best ways to reduce barriers and promote HIV medical treatment, development of evidence-based HIV/AIDS policy recommendations for reducing HIV infection rates and recommendations regarding the collaboration among District agency programs and services."

AFTER THE JUMP: Women pay more for things in the grocery store; blame it on the Goose; Maryland senators shoot down wacky amendments to the state's same-sex marriage bill:

GLEE covers the original Date Rape Anthem, "Blame It (On the Alcohol)":

gets feminist at Safeway:

It's a buyer beware world out there if you're a woman. It turns out, the female gender pays more for some of the same items men also buy.

We went shopping at the Safeway in Georgetown to show you just how much more.

Take shaving cream.

We found Gillette Foamy Sensitive Skin on sale for $1.99. It's 11 ounces. The 7 ounce Skintimate Sensitive Skin shaving cream sells for $2.49.

A spokesperson for Skintimate says most of their branded shaving creams are at higher prices, because they are targeted for more skin care needs.

The women's product has 4 ounces less than the men's product but costs 50 cents more.

That is small pennies compared to what we found with deodorant

PLUS: G.W. professor John Banzhaf's dry cleaning gender test rises again.

FOLLOWING yesterday's debate over same-sex marriage, the Maryland state Senate moved to vote on the issue. Several amendments to the bill were passed, changing the name of the bill, clarifying language exempting religious institutions from participating in same-sex weddings, exempting "fraternal benefit societies" from providing insurance coverage to same-sex couples, and exempting religious institutions from providing education, counseling, and—seriously—summer camps to promote same-sex marriage. But amendments that would extend religious exemptions to small business owners, public school teachers, and providers of adoption, foster care, and other social services were rejected. Another amendment, which would outright prohibit the teaching of same-sex marriage in public elementary schools, was also shot down. Basically. "OK, gay people get married, as long as no one under the age of 12 can ever learn that this is possible" is a serious legislative priority for state conservatives.

    THE CURE for HIV/AIDS.......AMBUSH THE IDEA that AMBUSH cures AIDS is being proven by the more than 400 individuals who have taken a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. The result is that AMBUSH 'KILLS' the virus by causing the protein envelope to rupture and the viral particles are discarded by the white blood cells. AMBUSH is able to 'KILL' the virus that are 'hiding' in the lymph system by its 'natural radioactive' properties. This process allows the body to 'return to normal health' with a corresponding immunity to that or those strains of the virus. What is AMBUSH ? AMBUSH is a radioactive isotope of uranium that is found in the 'palm' plant of which there are more than 3000 species. When ingested, AMBUSH causes the body temperature in the trunk area to rise to about 102 degrees when the individual is sleeping. The preparation takes four hours per batch, which is then given to the individuals for consumption 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. AMBUSH is a herbal preparation in this form but it contains an active ingredient which is a 'NEW' crystalline substance, a drug from the 'palm plant' similarly to ASPIRIN originating from the willow tree bark RESULTS: Finally, if this is accepted or not, believed or not, THE LORD GOD always wins and this is the heavenly truth to which AMBUSH was divinely given to mankind for the CURE of HIV/AIDS and it will be here forever. The WORLD is therefore COMPELLED to listen......sooner or later....your choice !!!!!
