And when you succeed, then what? You think the most intelligent people--the ones that are the country's economic future--will just be fine with that? That things will just continue? You'll have a population crisis and not enough people to support it.  Then I guess the invasions begin.

All to cover up the obvious: you suck as leaders.

Anyone still think I was wrong about just how bad this was gonna get?

Don't see how this gets better without it getting even more worse first sadly.

It is going to be a LOOOOOOOONG summer.

The winter the country is entering is going to be even longer, colder and crueller, however.

They've been telling us that they're theocratic fascists for a while now. This is just one part of that.
Theocratic fascists will not stop on their own, so mjjt is right. For as long as we fail to stop them, it will get worse and worse. We have to stop them.

Removing personhood from women completely.  They will be denied the ability to work, have their own bank accounts, credit cards, etc.  Basically where we were from the founding of the nation up to the 1970's.

Of course, you can bet your ass they'll get right on removing personhood from minorities as well.

More than once I've thought to myself that the wrong side attempted an insurrection.

We could have had universal healthcare by now.

It's all fixible, if we had reasonable people governing for the best interests of the country and reaching reasonable compromise over what their constituents want, with their constituents being reasonably educated people that are informed by a news media.

Fixing the self serving lobbying and corporate circle jerk with government and private sector benefits with a population partially brainwashed by a nationalistic religion and a news media more focused on entertainment than information and that has also lost credibility as the bedrock foundation of reality, in part due to gas lighting, is a much, much steeper hill to climb when it comes to fixible.

"Having been given this second chance for Life, we must not rest and must not relent until the sanctity of life is restored to the center of American law in every state in the land."

I don't understand. I admit I was wrong thinking they'd never overturn Roe v. Wade (and who could blame me for that?), but now they want even more? This is just so shocking! No one could have predicted it.
 
2022-06-24 10:28:40 PM  
The other reason we are well and truly screwed is that while decisions like this one may galvanize the liberal base and we may make gains for a few elections (and not even certain that will happen) the bad guys know that their game plan works and they will keep pushing it and pushing it, they're not going to give up because they know that the it works. Liberals will get tired, fed up, disorganized but those guys will keep going. They've been at it for decades and they're not going to stop.

Yeah, and despite the obvious stupidity of even brand name Republicans, too many people believe they can't fight back and win.
Makes me even more pissed off tbh.

Nope. Haven't been thinking that we are headed for a christo-fascist regime since Trump. Definitely hasn't had my anxiety so high, I created an awesome little condition known as A-fib (👈super fun stuff).


Trying to get moved to NM as soon as humanly possible. If they are able to follow through with banning it completely nationwide, I'm going to farking Mexico. My wife will not go through a forced pregnancy in a red farking state.

Heh...to think, not that long ago we were singing his praises as the "sober head" in the White House during the early days of Covid and then as a "defender of the constitution" on 1/6.

Lest we may have forgotten, here he is reminding us he's still a straight up Republican asshole.

My daughter is trying to get an appointment for a tubal ligation before the Rs try and ban those too. Several of her friends have already had that done in the past year. The Rs are basically going to drive at least a tenth of a generation of young white/ish women into voluntary sterilization.

/may all the gods bless the many OB/GYNs who have no problem accepting that some women have no desire to be pregnant or give birth and who know their own minds enough to not change them just because they "might meet a man who wants kids"

We should outlaw the Republican Party in all 50 states.

Tyranny of the minority. Enshrined in law by the US Senate and the electoral college and held in place by state gerrymandering.

Won't happen.  Banning abortion is not a power given to the federal government in the constitution. Therefore it's up to the states.

All you guys had to do was nominate anyone else. The idea that a white male would get the nomination for the democrats was so toxic to the left that you guys nominated the only person that couldn't beat trump. Congrats you guys played yourselves

When really he was doing what you can depend on any Republican in power doing - acting in their own selfish perceived best interests.

Pence defended the constitution because he didn't think he could get away with breaking it, and he thought Trump had arranged to have him assassinated to get him out of the way.  And he very much seems to have been correct on both counts.

The majority of Americans oppose these social measures.  However, through gerrymandering, voter suppression, and just plain voter apathy, the minority has become the majority.
