    Mainstream media assured US during 2016 & 2020 elections, and confirmations of the 3 Trump justices that Republicans would never actually do what they were campaigning on, because it is too extreme, too dangerous, too unpopular, but then they did something faster and *way worse*

    Republican justices ended a woman’s right to choose in Texas. That’s what happens when anonymous right-wing donors control the Supreme Court and precedent ceases to matter.

    When can private citizens sue others for being unvaccinated? Because if you don’t think that will happen, you don’t understand the law of unintended consequences.

    NEW: Texas law could flip the script on abortion politics.

    Republicans have benefited from a “safe space” to stir up their base against abortion with little electoral downside as Roe was secure.

    Now that safe space is now gone.

    I want2know what percentage of the ppl screaming at President Biden&the Dems to “Pack the court!” actually voted for Dems in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020. Obama begged ppl2vote. Hillary begged ppl2vote. This bullshit got started when ppl stayed home during 2010 midterms.

    Justice Sotomayor: “ … A majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand … Taken together, the Act is a breathtaking act of defiance—of the Constitution, of this Court’s precedents, and of the rights of women seeking abortions throughout Texas.”

    As of today, abortion is effectively illegal for most women in the nation’s second most populous state.

    There have been a lot of ageist attacks on President Biden, including from the left. But I sincerely wonder if a younger president, more concerned about his/her legacy, would have had the courage to make the difficult decision he did. I hope this leads people to be less ageist.

    And if they can get away with peeling back voting rights and abortion rights then yes sports fans…They’re going after the whole enchilada.

    Every significant gain of the 20th century is at risk now. White supremacy is making its last stand.

    Vote accordingly.

    You thought voter supression was a black people problem.

    You took reproductive rights for granted.

    You underestimated just how serious these RW religious fundies are.


    Man fuck off.

    I’m going to keep saying it and not give a fuck who gets mad about it.

    Everyone hollering and screaming today who blew off 2016 and the midterms before that can all eat shit.

    So many of us told you and you didn’t care.

    So take your DEMS DO SOMETHING and shove it up your ass.

    Confirms what we’ve known. The current court is corrupted and corrupt. One of the five in the conservative majority was a corrupt appt. A corrupt court must be brought to heel by the law. We must expand the court to undo its corruption.

    Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) tweeted at 4:57 PM on Wed, Sep 01, 2021:
    Texas law SB8 blatantly violates the constitutional right established under Roe v. Wade nearly five decades ago. It will disproportionately affect communities of color and individuals with low incomes from getting access to the health care they need.

    We must protect that right.

    Conservatives believe in a different United States and they’re going to do everything they can to thwart the majority and make their vision happen. The differences are irreconcilable.

    You can’t expect women in their late 50s, 60s & 70s to continue to help you fight for abortion rights. Although older women are the stuff they’re not the Duracell Bunny. It’s your time now young ladies. Seize the moment.
