Originalist: Only ask what the people who wrote the thing thought. Progressive: Okay. The people who wrote the 14th thought these Confederates got their asses kicked and we should try equality. Originalist: No! Not like that.

And Clarence has invited Christian nationalists to send a case to the SCOTUS allowing the 6-3 right wing majority to strike down the ruling that made birth control legal nationally. And if you doubt for one second that these Republicans will do it, you might want to wake up.
This is just a reminder that Ohio Republicans plan to BAN BIRTH CONTROL NEXT. cleveland.com/news/2022/07/o…

Oh wait, you mean we actually have to take the text and original understanding of the 14th Amendment seriously?

Loretta Lynn wrote cool-ass songs about the pill and women's liberation for conservative audiences in the 1960s, and she was so adorable that she got away with it.

With a reasonable chance to win the Senate Republicans nominated an alleged domestic abuser with secret children who pays for abortions by check and a TV doctor who kills puppies. All because those were the men who seemed most like their cult leader, Donald Trump.

As I’ve said repeatedly, the only reason people are voting for Walker is not because of his “policies” (lol) or temperament or knowledge or *moral character.* They’re voting for him because he will do what McConnell or Trump tells him to do. That’s it, that’s the entire campaign

There's no "twist." Cops murdered a child and your platform repeated the deputy's lies.

Somebody needs to tell the truth, Brexit was all lies, and that it’s just a damage limitation exercise now. Until that day the country will be built on sand. Just one leader after another promising unicorns, as around and around we go, whilst the country declines.

How troubled is Rikers, you ask? The jail allowed a man to defecate "in his shorts due to a lack of toilets in the intake area" and left him "in his soiled clothes for 11 hours until another incarcerated person — not jail staff — brought him new clothes." gothamist.com/news/rikers-im…

Super-cool that Britain is going to crash itself and everyone else's economy so it won't have to allow Polish plumbers in to fix the loo.

Like the USA’s-Trump, brexit was a game by the rich to not pay taxes - and all other things to protect the rich. Didn’t care about citizens. Still don’t, and won’t ever.

Would be an incredible achievement to be elected leader of your party, become Prime Minister, kill the queen, tank the pound and get fired all within one menstrual cycle. Unreal girlbossing.
