The Wrap-Up: April 17, 2012

Both Warren Buffett and President Obama pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries.

Two federal judges took a huge swipe at America's federal regulatory system (and by extension, the minimum wage).

Saudi Arabia has decided to ban gay kids, tomboys, and other "non-conformists" from its schools. Maybe this is where Louisiana republicans got the idea for its Charter schools.

A street-preacher thinks that calling Rosie O'Donnell a "lesbian pig" is the Christian thing to do. Maybe he should give that Bible another read and pay attention this time because he missed the part where it says love thy neighbour.

Given this being the week of Tax Day, it's a good time to bring up how marriage inequality hurts same-sex couples, especially those with children, this time of the year thanks to DoMA.

Rep Joe Walsh (R-IL) challenged his opponent Tammy Duckworth to a debate. The thing is, she was on duty (Army National Guard) at the time of the debate. Maybe Walsh should have used that time to pay the $117,000 he STILL owes in child support.

America is losing interest in the Tea Party. I guess all of those fascism signs have lost their luster.

Or maybe, it's stories like this one.

And lastly, a press release from then-Governor Romney titled "There's No Place Like Youth Pride."
