I didn't know Elizabeth Warren had declined FNC's invitation to appear on their network, but if she did, then good for her.  Appearing on that propaganda machine will score no Democrats any points in the long run; and if it actually gets the collective goats of Berners everywhere -- well, that's just gravy.

 

It makes sense for the people floundering in the polls. People like her, who are midlevel, don't need it. And it will hurt her image, not just now, but in the long-term. All she has do is see how little Bernie got out of all the endless press fawning over his appearance - he has actually dropped in polling.

It's one thing to ban abortions, but when we talk about sending people to prison, including the mother, we've gone entirely too far.

But let's be honest, they can't ban abortion. They can ban abortion for poor women and girls. The rich and middle class will just fly to California, Toronto or Paris. Unless of course, this really does become Gilead and they don't let women leave.

 

It's sick to try to force a women to have her rapist child.  It's even sicker when the pregnant person is a child herself.  The people doing this are mostly men and have no idea (or don't GAF) about the emotional and physical toll pregnancy takes on some women. It's nothing any trauma victim should be forced to endure and that goes double for a child victim.

 

Just this conversation has shown how far they've moved the window though. Now we aren't talking about the fact that women have a constitutional right to abortion.  We're talking about if a woman even has a right to ownership of her body in cases where a man has violated it.  We're talking about whether the state or parents/physicians know best when a 10 year old rape victim turns up pregnant. 

 

TLDR: Things are f*cked up

Sometimes I can't believe this is real life.

Wendy Vitter's husband is a whore who slept with prostitutes and has a diaper fetish. I take consultation in the fact that she was cheated on and humiliated by his antics. Yes, that is petty, but at this point it's hard not to be petty.

 

And I'm sure the Pentagon had to be sprayed with Lysol. Gene Simmons looks like he smells like a dead skunk.

You are so right.  Bills such as these are designed to punish poor women and girls (and WOC) for getting pregnant out of wedlock.  Pure and simple.

Perhaps this will speed up LGBTQ progress in a handful of other Asian nations, especially the relatively progressive ones (Thailand, Japan, etc). A long way to go.

I'd still vote for him over Trump.  Yes, indeed, living under the Trump Administration has reduced me to this.

That's not even a close call.  He's certainly not my first (Harris) or even second (Warren) choice in the primary, but I wouldn't even have to think twice about voting for him in the general.

The whole thing with him kissing and hugging women makes me very reluctant to vote for him if he's the nominee. Besides that I think he'd find a way to lose since he's always been incredibly inept and gaffe prone.
