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
In February of last year, I got a call from my sister that my mom had landed in the hospital. And that the doctor told her that she might die within the next week. My entire family marshalled up flight plans and hotels and headed to where mom was seriously ill. Covid was around then but only just beginning to be spoken of. On flights home, all of us going to our various locations were cautious, one member wore a bandana around his face, and I remember being highly aware of a man coughing his hea
Category 1: States that do not recognize that women are full citizens with the right to control their own health care, with govt staying out of their business. I was a full citizen of the United States with the right to privacy about decisions regarding having children, but it turns out not only that certain members of the Supreme Court are confederacy-loving idiots, but also the Republican party wants to relegate women to second class. That may fly for authoritarian religious nuts but not for t
If it is based on someone's particular religious beliefs, guess what. The United States is not based on a particular religion being a state religion that everyone must agree with and follow. That includes christianity.
If a particular religion believes that women must be submissive to men, that does not mean all women everywhere have to respect that belief and follow it.
What is absolutely reprehensible is that most Republicans in these states that are banning abortion consider the fe
When Texas, with SB8,, passed before SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade, decided to make it so that citizens of the state could snoop on women having abortions and sue the providers in civil court, all while Texas government pretends to have nothing to do with it except codify that odious behaviour into law, I wondered what SCOTUS would do about it. After all, people who just want money through a lawsuit don't even necessarily have *standing* against the person getting an abortion, they're just greedy
Unfortunately the trial will not be available to watch, but boy this should be all over the news for awhile (hah, maybe not on Fox News since theyr'e the ones being sued.
What is this about?
Fox News knew that what they were putting on the air about Dominion was a lie and includes Hannity, Carlson and Bartalova saying the lies.
What was pretty amusing in the court documents is email from Tucker Carson that says, of Trump "I hate him passionately" -hah
Trump has been indicated on felony charges for the one in New York re: hiding payments about Stormy Daniels. The NY Attorney General has a civil lawsuit against Trump re: lying about assets-Trump went in this last week to do a second deposition on that. DOJ has a special counsel to look into the classified documents he took to MarALago as well as efforts to interfere with the 2000 election. and finally Trump's efforts in Georgia to overturn the election (The Fulton County DA has until M
They must be pretty afraid they cannot win if they don't try some voter suppression but having the Secretary of State take over elections is beyond the pale. ehttps://www.democracydocket.com/news-alerts/texas-senate-passes-bill-to-seize-control-of-elections-from-local-authorities/ (cough cough Harris County) and appointing somebody else to oversee the vote is STEALING VOTES. Maybe they should wait to do this until the Dominion lawsuit is over since it shows Fox News duped people over the vote.
Update: the bill that would have required Texas public schools to display the 10 Commandments in every classroom has failed. Good. Shows that Republicans are not serious people but just want to rile up ignorant people who don't understand separation of church and state
1. Not everyone is a christian. The bill to put the 10 commandments in every school, in every classroom, is nonsense.DMN
2. Not everyone wants their children to be indoctrinated by fairy tales
3. What they want to
Read this bill and tell me if this isn't one of the stupidest bills the Texas Lege has come up with yet. Maybe it's written for ignorant Texans that don't know nothing stops any kid from reading the Bible or praying as long as they aren't disrupting class and paying attention during instructional time. They can pray before school, at lunch, etc. Nobody stops 'em. They can even bring a Bible into school, just like any kid can bring in a so-called Banned Book to read. If it makes a child feel bet
I had quite forgotten that the Republican kooks in Granbury are bigots. 7 years ago Hood County bigots tried to get LGBTQ books removed from the public library; they were stopped because there were more sensible Americans fighting this.
This last couple of years Texas Legislaor Matt Krause took up the Bigot torch. From 2021
These intrusive christians should be told to MYOB instead of doing the UnAmerican activity of banning books.
And, as Christopher Tackett,
It's funny. I never cared about who was or wasn't transgender my whole life. Really, until wacko Republicans decided to make it a part of their culture war, most people probably didn't care either. Mz Zephyr was elected, was silenced by Republicans when she wanted to speak out about their bigoted view of transgender laws. You can read the particulars at the lawsuit link below.
Have to ask, why the fool does it take a lawsuit to fight against the bigotry of Republicans?
Anyway, here is
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
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
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
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
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.
