The moment I decided to leave the Evangelical Church? In Bible Study, we were chatting about politics. They asked who I would vote for. I said, "I always vote for those that care about the poor and want to help the least among us." They all gasped in horror. #FreshWords

Let us remember in November that abortions were banned way before AR-15s thus giving guns and mass shooters more rights than women. I’ll never forget it.

"Let’s at least stop being disingenuous. Let’s admit that our asylum process has become a myth and that we are the most flagrant undoers of our own ideals" writes @Megankstack nytimes.com/2022/07/02/opini…

Impeachment for Supreme Court justice has happened before: Abe Fortas & Samuel Chase come to mind. It’s not unheard of. They lied during confirmation hearings and there are questions about bribes/bills being paid.
WATCH: Health and Human Services Sec. Xavier Becerra says there’s not a lot the Biden administration can do for abortion rights. @SecBecerra: “Unless we’re all going to say the word of the Supreme Court will no longer have value, we have to heed the word of the Supreme Court.”

A real lesson for all of us comes from Ecuador where Indigenous leader Leonidas Iza led a successful 18-day national strike that resulted in lower gas prices and a end to new oil drilling in the Amazon. We need more direct action like this in the US.

"I often say immigrants are the keenest of observers," writes @LolaAkinmade. "Mostly because we inhabit that space between tourists visiting a place and a born-and-bred local... a subset excellent at observing nuances that locals often take for granted." adventure.com/diversifying-s…

If the fetus is shot while their 10 year old mom attends 4th grade, only then will conservatives think the abortion is justified.

Even if the X-ray machine was not working, the agent joking with the smuggler could have ordered the driver simply open the back for a quick look like we did back in the day before we had those machines. This must be investigated by @DHSOIG. Lives could have been saved.
Smuggler of the big rig that over 50 migrants died in was recorded joking with Border Patrol agent at the Encinal, TX Border Patrol Checkpoint just before 3pm. This checkpoint has an X-ray machine. Was it inspected at all? nytimes.com/2022/06/29/us/te…

It doesn’t bother me that her eye is open while she sleeps bc she’s blind in that eye, but that whole eye movement thing is kind of crazy. I know our eyes move during sleep, just never seen an open eye sleep movement.
