There was a debate between the candidates for Governor in Texas.
Texas, you have a choice.
To vastly improve your circumstances.
Greg Abbott says that instead of having an abortion, victims of rape can avail themselves of the state's "alternatives to abortion" program, which provides "baby supplies" pic.twitter.com/1RuBCktEC5

Beto O'Rourke begins his closing debate statement: "I don't think that Greg Abbott wakes up wanting to see children shot in their schools or for the grid to fail, but it's clear that he's incapable or unwilling to make the changes necessary." pic.twitter.com/AqRt55lDAP

Saying he'll provide rape victims baby supplies should end Abbott's political career. Forever.

BREAKING: Greg Abbott refuses to allow an audience at tonight's debate with Beto O'Rourke in the Texas governor's race.
Families of the Uvalde victims arrived at the venue and are not being allowed in.
Abbott is too much of a coward to face Texas voters.

And, the under indictment Attorney General did this.
BREAKING: Texas AG Ken Paxton (R) fled from his home to avoid being served with a subpoena, literally running away from a process server.
His wife drove the getaway car.

IS NOTHING MORE THAN VOTER SUPPRESSION
update: commissioners have voted to take no action, so TX's largest university (and one of the largest in the country) won't have an early polling place during the midterms https://t.co/qtUb4TZ8ya https://t.co/1laOIUnk9h

You’ve got to be kidding me! Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R) used stock footage of Russian soldiers marching in her campaign ad, falsely claiming they were the Arizona National Guard. Always Russia.
This is deep

Here’s a quietly wonderful thing I noticed:
If you talk to someone who was in choir or band at a majority Black HS, you’ll eventually discuss those annoying fundraisers for uniforms, instruments, etc. & a SURPRISING number will casually say:
“Oh, Dolly Parton paid for ours”

(Cishet) Black male misogynoir makes no got-dam sense, given that Black women are the only ones holding our community together and usually the only ones ensuring that Black men have any opportunities in this society at all
Looking for the lie. See none.

Folks it’s time to acknowledge that “evangelical” is no longer a Christian religous label but a political one focused on political power more than faith. Walker’s opponent is an ordained minister whose life has been a demonstration of faith and service. https://t.co/vUB1SQNXV3

Republicans want America to abandon Ukraine, a sovereign nation invaded by a tyrannical dictator. They’d rather we support a man who’s killed thousands and threatened to strike our homeland with nuclear weapons.
If Republicans win, Putin wins. Americans and Ukrainians lose. https://t.co/O3ih8gWi9K

A lot of people don’t know it because you just made that up. Pathological liar.

From unanswered questions about 9/11 & the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, to conspiring w/ Putin to punish the US w/ higher oil prices, the royal Saudi family has never been a trustworthy ally of our nation. It’s time for our foreign policy to imagine a world without their alliance.

The frustrating thing about all of this is how easily things can be
And how much time must be spent rebuilding the things we already had, instead of spending time getting more.
Because people fail to act until it’s too late.

Trump wanted Republicans in the Senate to vote against raising the debt ceiling because he wanted the economy under Biden to crash. Didn’t work.
Trump wanted the Saudis to cut oil production to raise gas prices and inflation under Biden. Worked.

I absolutely hate that I have to clarify this for the creeps out there, but teen girls are not peaking in their fertility. Their bodies, including their reproductive systems are not fully developed putting them at risk for complications and defects. They. Are. Children.

If Saudi Arabia didn’t have such a high percentage of the world’s oil, the rest of the world would be able to say out loud what they really think about a savage kingdom still stuck in the Seventh Century.

Why are these House & Senate races even close? If women, who reject the idea that they are 2nd class citizens who can’t decide their own medical care go out & vote (like they did in Kansas), Democrats will can win, even in heavily gerrymandered districts. #getoutthevote

Dr. Oz allegedly oversaw the killing of puppies by injecting expired drugs directly into their hearts without sedation. They were then left in a garbage bag with living puppies who were their littermates.
He should be under federal investigation, not running for Senate.
