    Idaho:
    1. Outlawed all abortion
    2. Turned down $36 million in federal money for childcare
    3. Voted to end Medicaid coverage two months postpartum
    4. Disbanded a state committee that investigated causes of maternal death.

    It's not about "life", it's punish the sluts.

    "Flagged for review" =/= "banned"

    Depends on the number of books that have been flagged and if there is an actual person or group meeting to review them.

    In business and government, it's called Death by Committee.

    I can’t quite make it out in the photo, but I think those stairs were manufactured by Karma Inc.

    Eric Trump will be joined by Ian Smith at Renew America rally at Trump golf course. Smith is a Covid denier and Holocaust denier. He said the good guys did not win World War 2. Openly praises Hitler. Attacks Biden for having Jews in Cabinet. Claims secret Jewish cabal is responsible for everything bad.

    But hey, let's talk about Biden is old.

    NYC Transit Retirees Join Fight Against Medicare Advantage

    TWU Local 100 retirees opposed to the Medicare Advantage contract the union signed with Aetna are dreading January when their new privatized health insurance is slated to kick in.

    https://popularresistance.org/nyc-transit-retirees-join-fight-against-medicare-advantage/

    Another example of why I don't believe a word either party says. America, whether it be a democrat or a republican president, literally sides with corporate greed over human lives.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/oct/13/alabama-pregnant-woman-jail-lawsuit

    Alabama woman was jailed for fetal endangering when she allegedly took drugs while two months pregnant. She was jailed throughout her pregnancy without prenatal care or her medication, although it was a high risk pregnancy due to medical conditions. When her water broke on a Saturday she was told to wait until Monday to deliver. She was left unattended and told to stop screaming. She delivered in the shower, hemorrhaging. Finally taken to the hospital with life threatening condition for mother and child. Both survived but the baby was taken away. Because she had endangered the fetus.

    And they are so pro life.

    Which leads one to wonder, based on location (and ideology) what color that poor woman's skin is.......

    Actually she is white.
    True that these fetal harm laws are most used against Black and Latina women.

    The real sin is being poor. Of course, being a minority means one is more likely to be poor. But they'll come after a poor white person as hard as any other race.

    As a footnote, while this woman and child were endangered, not one peep from so called pro life groups.

    Outkick is a Fox program aimed at young audience. It is hosted by someone who used to be on ESPN but left because trans people.
    They are telling women not to drink tap water because it's birth control.
    I wish.

    We Need To Talk About "Authoritarianism"



    America seems to be the most authoritarian country on this planet.
