22 Alabama State Senators voted against an amendment to permit women who were pregnant from rape or incest to get an abortion.

Pure coincidence, right?


I didn't need to see the photos to know this legislation was coming from wealthy white people mostly of the male persuasion.  IIRC the sponsor was a woman.  As is the governor who is likely to sign it.  The woman sponsor said she just wants to get it to SCOTUS, in order to bring down RvW.

Supporters had argued that exceptions would weaken their hope of creating a vehicle to challenge Roe. Collins said that the law isn’t meant to be a long-term measure and that lawmakers could add a rape exception if states regain control of abortion access...

Participants at a meeting between Republican senators and White House senior advisers Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller found the President's advisers' proposal to revamp the US legal immigration system to be lacking in substance, according to a senior GOP official familiar with the presentation.

Lacking in substance?  Maybe Kushner really is the leader of the GOP.

"....the Congresswoman mentioned the role that Palestinians played in helping to provide a safe haven for Jewsih people following the tragedy of the Holocaust"

- Denzel McCampbell, Thalib communications director


How about the role Palestinians played in the ACTUAL Holocaust?

Yeah. How about the role Palestinians played in ACTUAL Holocaus?

I know you won’t respond because that conservatives do, throw out some bullshit, get it knocked down but ignore the facts and then throw out more bullshit.

Re:  "Republican screw ups"

Well... we got the important one right in 2016.

McCain couldnt get it done.  Mitt (who should have been nominated in '08) fell short in '12.

Got it right this time.  Nominated a guy/gal who could win.

Let's see if you guys can match.

No, Kiiid, you got it wrong.

This is what I mean about being unable to admit mistakes.

You will burn for your sins. Unfortunately, so will the rest of us.

It’s a bad plan that will fail and go nowhere. It is creepy and racist and betrays American values, so I see what you like about it.

Sure, the Russians are known to have hacked a couple counties in Florida, but the governor says he is sure no votes were altered and further, he is not allowed to disclose which ones.

Or a great way to end the invasion of the border/s and seal them.

I have a friend who loves people, and he is a Christian and he wants to save every soul. He is disappointed because he lost a friend on Facebook over his political ideas.

My Mom always taught me when I was growing up that people are allowed to have their own opinions, and that is a great part of America, we are free to be ourselves.

And it is true that we need to be ourselves because everyone else is taken. Be yourself, this is America and you are free to have your own thoughts.

People who unfriend you over politics are missing out on what America is all about. What makes us great is that we are all free to be ourselves.

I have friends who are gay, I have friends who are communist, I have friends who are pagans, and in America they are all free to believe whatever they want.

By the way, I think Sabrina Cervantes is doing a great job for California, we may not agree on everything, but she is bringing jobs to California, and she is doing a great job.

No guns for teachers!
Some teachers downunder are nutz! [maybe some in America too?]...who shouldn't be allowed within a mile of a gun.

Instead, time to introduce uncle bambu's school security measures.
