The American Taliban --- Giving The Real Taliban A Run For Their Money...

Honestly - if you were to ask me - I'd say American democracy has a great deal more to fear from it's own fundamentalist Christian right-wing tyrants rather than a bunch of bearded Arab freaks living in caves over on the Pakistan/Afghanistan border.

"A male Republican House leader in Michigan silenced two female Democratic state legislators on Thursday after the pair tried to advance a measure that would have reduced access to vasectomies.
While discussing a bill that would erode the availability of abortion, Reps. Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown introduced an amendment to apply the same regulations to vasectomies that GOP lawmakers wanted to add to abortion services. The debate grew heated, as Republicans sought to gravel down the women. Byrum was not permitted to speak in favor of the measure and Brown was repeatedly interrupted. “I’m flattered that you want to get in my vagina, but no means no,” she said. The next day both were silenced."
