Open Thread | Go Ohio!!! Issue One is DEFEATED!


They still don’t want to admit that the issue of body autonomy is a live wire. They can’t go to their precious diners to get the stories about the rage surrounding loss of body autonomy. It doesn’t center WWC men.

    Been seeing these headlines all day that the Ohio vote is a “setback for Republicans.” They’re absolutely right but it is kinda sad that a victory for democracy is a setback for Republicans.

    Due to the Fox News coverage causing @OutdoorsyBW to be attacked by right wingers, @YourLifeAfter25 had to shut the app down for now until we can pay for it to be more secure. We’re fighting for this community to keep going and growing but we need help.

    “We should open the inquiry, because it allows them to ask a broader range of questions,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said. “But we should move very, very, very slowly beyond that.”

    Fresh off a win in Ohio, abortion rights activists are moving on to their next targets. Progressive group Indivisible is out with a memo to donors setting Arizona as the next stage in the fight, pushing for a ballot initiative to protect access to reproductive care in the state.

    What happened in Alabama over the weekend didn’t start on that dock in Montgomery.

    It was the cumulative impact of hundreds of years of racial oppression, bubbling back to the surface after yet another incident of white privilege disrespecting Black bodies.

    The media is clinging to DeSantis and desperately trying to prop him up because even though they won’t report it’s increasingly evident that Trump’s going down in flames and none of the other sad sacks running for the GOP nomination scratch that MAGA itch. But it’s over.

    This TikTok interview with the riverboat captain is enlightening. He says they knew who the people were who started it because they pull stupid sh1t every year. He called them over the PA system 5 or 6 times to move their boat and they just ignored & flipped him off.

    Can’t overstate it: Roe v Wade was an electoral gift to Republicans while it was alive. It turned an issue that’s a huge loser for the party into a winner—they could mobilize their anti-abortion base without triggering a backlash by the abortion rights majority.

    Now that’s over.

    The election’s most urgent social issue -national abortion prohibition, almost no exceptions – cuts at least 70-30 in favor of Democrats.

    Trump won 53% of vote in Ohio but GOP controls 67% of seats in state house & 79% in state senate

    That’s why defeat of Issue 1 such a big deal

    Voters can still use direct democracy to check power of ultra gerrymandered legislature & protect fundamental rights

    Tonight, in a massive win for democracy, voters in Ohio rejected a right-wing measure to change the rules of the game.

    Extremist Republicans will stop at nothing to dismantle reproductive rights. We must fight like hell to make sure they lose this November.

    The Battle of Montgomery is lost. After our surprise attack against the guard, the enemy brought reinforcements. Cletus lost his tooth, Jebediah took a chair to the head, and Agnes was tossed in the river. Send bail money.

    I believe that the Democrats need to make that racist phuck from Alabama one of the poster children for their ads in 2024. He’s so intent on controlling the reproductive rights of military women, that he’s willing to hurt the military overall. Make him part of that anti-abortion story that they’re telling about the GOP.
