Here's what I find ironic. These Texas Republicans are all about preventing children from learning about the diverse world as it is, and yet are trying to stuff 10 commandments posters into every classroom.
If this jackass really feels this way, then why is he trying to put the Lege in the place of decision makers instead of parents with regard to the 10 commandments? Worse than a hypocrite. What is he, a christian nationalist instead of a normal person?
would not survive to birth. She was advised that continuing her pregnancy put her at a higher risk
of developing preeclampsia, placental abruption, and deadly blood clots. Yet, she was denied an
abortion because the hospital said it was unsure whether her conditions satisfied Ohio’s abortion-
ban exceptions. She and her husband immediately scheduled an abortion at a hospital in Michigan.
But, soon after, a Michigan appeals court allowed the state’s 1931 abortion ban
Why, it was only a couple of weeks ago that some Republicans were telling women to just move on and forget about that they were doing re: abortion bans. Yeah, forget that some states were STILL passing laws to limit abortion to 6 weeks, make women have multiple appointments over several days before they cold even get on, maybe forced to have a sonogram, or having to leave the state if, god forbid, they have to get an abortion for any reason AFTER 6 weeks. (At which point, incidentally, a lot of
Don't know if everyone is following how utterly corrupt and bribe-able Clarence Thomas is, but the most amazing part is that Harlan Crow put Thomas on the gravy train and Thomas not only took all the spiffs, but didn't fill out his ethics reports about all the gifts. That tells me Thomas knew is was shameful but liked those free trips too much plus it was too much work to recuse himself from any court cases involving Crows pet projects. (Harlan Crow doesn[t want anyone to know how much bribes gi
Everyone has read the horror stories of women who are being affected by the draconian and cruel law passed by Texas to prevent women from getting abortions past a certain date (not to mention how awful it was to take away someone's rights to their own health care and treat them like non-citizens who need to be guided by ignorant politicians rather than qualified doctors. What happens if a women needs emergency care because the fetus dies or otherwise has an issue? The law in Texas
Makes ya wonder how many christian nationalists are actually in office that don't give a hoot about either the US constitution or the Texas constitution. Anyway, this is absurd and waiting for a lawsuit to happen, not to mention how bigoted this idea is. What is it? That Texas public schools can decide, rather than hire a qualified guidance counselor, to hire a chaplain instead.
Because where every public school being paid for tax dollars wants is some pushy religious types using an offic
An interesting part of the video with this article regarding the process of getting a pardon
So, what in the world is the Office of the US Pardon Attorney for if people can just go around it, probably have no investigation but instead possibly under the table pardons given out to those with lots of money. Feels like everything was a grift under the table with the Trump administration. Anyone, I believe, should be able to go to the OPA and ask to see the papers for
Anyone who disagrees with this inclusive process needs to read the case the Supreme Court ruled on, Town of Greece vs Calloway
I don't know anything about this group but absolutely agree that once you open the door to prayer in what should be a secular govt meeting, you cannot discriminate against anyone, it cannot ONLY be christian prayers.

Remember when Hobby Lobby went to court because they didn't want to pay for birth control for their employees?

If I wanted to watch an hour of sexual assaulter Trump lying, I'd tune in to his little lie fests he has with his followers who are happy to send this supposed rich guy money. And I don't. Who knows what CNN was thinking except they clearly want to bring in a larger audience comprised of the dregs of humanity.
One of the best articles I have read about this phenomenon, where there is a woman who is staunchly *pro-life*, whatever that means, and yet not only goes to get an abortion, but whines when all of a sudden there are rules that apply to HER is "The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion". That is to say, some woman will get an abortion and STILL want to deny the same thing to others.
Back when I was younger and naive to local politics, I thought that a county judge had some special qualifications that made them particularly suited to be a judge. Qualifications such as some kind of legal expertise or experience in budgets or roads.
County Judge Qualifications1
The County Judge must meet the following qualifications at the time of appointment or election:
Resident of Texas for at least 12 consecutive months
I wonder why someone runs for office if they don't believe THEY have responsibility for gun violence in their own district. Self seems to want to act like it's other places that have these problems, while his district has God looking over it and therefore is somehow immune. Well, it's not, is it. And god didn't protect his constituents, but instead allowed a child of 5 years old to die, among other murder victims. Prayer did not save those people, but again, where is HIS responsibility as an el
No, not the one, Jane Doe v Donald J Trump and Jeffrey Epstein from 2016 (US District Court Southern District of New York) PDF
Trump was originally supposed to go testify in the E Jean Carroll civil case, but decided to go fly away to Scotland instead of going to court. Guess he figures he's going to lose anyway so why not go golfing. What's hilarious is that he was asked by an Irish reporter why he went golfing instead of attending his own rape case, including "But does it not show disre
Alito wants everyone to look at the person who leaked about the Roe v Wade decision (which was full of baloney court decisions that showed his stupidity) not have freedom of speech to criticize the court as an illegitimate institution,all while taking AWAY a right of women and making them less than full citizens.
Poor Poor Alito. Won[t people just bow down to him since he sits on the court and shut up with the criticism? I think every American is pretty tired of the she
