Let us not talk falsely now, shall we? We’ve known that the cons packed the Sour Cream Court in order to start harming Americans in a wide variety of ways in the first place. Can anybody really be surprised they’ve attacked poor women…again? As you certainly know by now, Texass has passed an anti-abortion law that makes it nearly impossible to access one in that state. Now, obviously, this will have NO effect on any woman with resources. If she needs an abortion, she can travel out of state, get it done, come home.
Of course, there are groups of men in several other stupid states that are rushing to tell women what they can and can’t do with their bodies based on the Texican standard. They must be so excited they get to tell women what to do again. “Hey, you get your bitch-ass back in the kitchen – and make me some pie!” That’s the professed attitude of fourth-grader Eric Cartman on ‘South Park.’ Sadly, it continues to be the attitude of fourth-grade level thinking in Texass.
I think women across Texass (and those other states) should cross their legs and KEEP them crossed. If they can, I mean. Victims of incest can’t. Rape victims (redundant, I know) can’t. Leave it to Texass to victimize the victims. Hopefully, some clever sod will start a black market in Texass and the other moron states in RU-486, the so-called ‘morning after’ pill. One doesn’t have to wait to find out with RU-486. Of course, it’s expensive so STILL no help to poor people.
Quick question, though. Have they or have they not also made clear that the phrase ‘my body, my choice’ is false? Clearly, the standard is ‘your body, our choice.’ Now, there are many out there celebrating this decision. Does it not also mean that society can, in fact, force you to wear a mask? I wonder how the American Taliban are going to work that one out? They will – double standards are their thing – but it will be interesting to see them twisting logic and making exceptions that work best for them.
Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, the Taliban has claimed they’re going to be the new and improved religious zealot morons who won’t be as bad as they were before. Sure. They’ve broken up a women’s rights march in Kabul by firing live rounds near the crowd. I guess that IS an improvement. At least they didn’t shoot the women – yet…
I see it as a kind of playoff. Who is going to be the most vicious, the most cruel to people in the name of their – apparently – vicious and cruel god, the religious idiots in Afghanistan or the religious idiots in Texas? Stay tuned…
Hey, speaking of stupid, the gubernatorial recall bought by the cons is moving forward, wasting time, and costing huge amount of money but doesn’t seem to be recalling the governor at this point. Good. I realized, FAR too late, that I should have begun a write-in campaign to replace Newsom should the recall succeed. I’ll just have to live with the fact that I missed this round but I have high confidence that the cons will be out again, working on yet another recall, just as soon as the next Democrat gets elected governor – which I believe will be in 2022. That’s when you’ll be hearing from me, asking for your support.
The cons tried four times to get Newsom recalled before they bought this one. There’s no reason to believe they won’t try again just as soon as they can. I think the state legislature needs to change the rules to make a recall a bit more difficult – because these guys are relentless. I started off – I think I wrote this last week – saying I thought the Lieutenant Governor should just move up. After all, that person is elected as well. Then I realized, because that person is elected, the cons might try to get a con elected Lt Gov and then start the recall process even sooner. It might be even easier for them to corrupt the system.
The political ads are boring though, aren’t they? The cons trying the coup are listing problems California has. No, there’s not much substance when it comes to solutions. They just list the problems and promise to do “everything they can” to fix them. Well, I’ll make the same promise. I’ll do everything I can to fix California’s problems. Hell, I’ve already done “everything I can” to fix California’s problems. Call it a “proven record…”
A friend of mine went to an emergency room the other day and was dismayed by the number of people there waiting for treatment for non-emergency issues. Emergency rooms MUST, by law, treat all comers. He thinks there should be some system that allows people to gain access to medical help without gumming up emergency rooms. I agree.
I see the occasional letter to the editor declaring we ought to teach children in school things they might need on a daily basis instead of focusing on college-bound tracks only. You know, like we used to.
Driving on the roads these days has become something of a challenge and a moment by moment risk of one’s life. FAR too many people are out there driving who have never been taught to drive and it shows.
You know what ALL of these observations have in common? Tax cuts for the rich. We should have national health care but we can’t because it would involve taxing the rich. We SHOULD teach children real-life, day-to-day skills but schools had to make choices – because of tax cuts for the rich. There are no more traffic control cops working on a regular basis because of – wait for it – tax cuts for the rich.
When you hear the euphemism “tax cuts” what you’re REALLY hearing is “service cuts.” The evidence is overwhelming…
