Meanwhile, I was recently introduced to the existence of one Scott Walker.

Who has apparently confirmed that if asked to, he would sign into law a bill banning a 13 year old girl from having an abortion, after being raped by her father.

"Protecting the children" my fucking arse.

Josh Hawley needs to be reminded daily how he ran away like a snivelling punk-ass little weasel from the very same insurrection he supported.

Ron DeFascist wants paedos to get the death penalty? He might want to consider how spectacular an own-goal that could turn out to be given the tendency for such defendants to be Republicans.

"Hang Matt Gaetz! Hang Matt Gaetz!" :dopey:
Not to mention the photo of DeSanctis getting drunk with his high school students that time(s). These aren't pedophiliac, but not far off. Definitely fits into the groomer category.

Noem has a 2 year old grand daughter who has a rifle, a shotgun, and a pony named Sparkles. "Sparkles...trust no one! Run!" :rofl:


Also, "I hate anyone who had a pony growing up." :lol:

Speaking of Nazis…

Read a news article where an autistic Jewish high school student came home with a swastika carved into his back. Here are plenty of links about it: https://www.google.com/search?q=autisti ... ka+on+back

By the non-existent gods, were I to encounter the kid that did that, I’d give him a mark he couldn’t remove. Pull an Aldo the Apache on the little fuck.

Nazi, republican. Same thing. Seemed like the right place for this.

The time for civility is long past with these animals. What hangs, apart from Nazis? More Nazis.

I think most of the adults are too far gone, there has to be ways to inoculate their kids and at least try breaking the cycle. In a similar note, if there was a way to get the youngest Trump children away from that toxic family so it can wither and die.

Did AssBot, I mean, Abbot really sign a bill that allows him to overturn an election he doesn't like the results of? Is he saying the fascism part out loud?

It was a pretty good day yesterday, for once.

Yes, that was some good news. I am anxious to watch this lying piece of shit when he realizes his lies won’t work in a court in front of a judge. That doughy little lying fuck is in for a shock.

Sen. Tuberville criticized for remarks on white nationalists: ‘I call them Americans’
https://apnews.com/article/tommy-tuberville-white-nationalists-military-3a38da5a664b911260ea994415016600
“We are losing in the military so fast. Our readiness in terms of recruitment,” Tuberville said, according to the station’s transcript of the May 4 interview. “And why? I’ll tell you why. Because the Democrats are attacking our military, saying we need to get out the white extremists, the white nationalists, people that don’t believe in our agenda.”

When asked if he believed white nationalists should be allowed in the U.S. military, Tuberville responded, “Well, they call them that. I call them Americans.”

Very tolerant. Loves diversity. Whether you're Baptist, or Catholic, or white, or eggshell... he loves all kinds of people!

Meanwhile this same cornpone dufus shitheel is blocking confirmation of officers and Defense Department appointees. Clearly his concern about military readiness is heartfelt and has nothing to do with being a regressive far-right asshat.

"Military promotions impasse drags on as Sen. Tuberville defends blockade" | NBC

Dozens of military promotions continue to languish in the Senate as GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville digs in on blocking typically routine approvals over his opposition to the Pentagon's abortion policy.

About 200 defense-related promotions are awaiting Senate action, but Tuberville has indicated he has no plans to ease up on his blockade unless the Defense Department reverses course on an abortion policy for service members and their dependents that was announced in October.

Since March, Tuberville has been using a procedural tactic to slow promotions that are often quickly approved in the Senate by unanimous consent. One senator’s objection, however, can stall the approval process.

What an absolute clown, and forking idiot. He's like the caricature of a football coach turned senator in the deep south. :shifty:

Meanwhile, take a peek at what Ron DeSantis has been up to in Florida.

He's just signed into law, a bill allowing healthcare providers to refuse treatment on the basis of "a conscience-based objection,” including any ethical, moral, or religious beliefs.” This is coverd in more detail hre, viz:

Senate Bill 1580, “Protections of Medical Conscience,” allows Florida health care providers and payors to refuse services based on their moral, ethical or religious beliefs. The bill was one of more than a dozen bills closely watched by LGBTQ advocates who were concerned health care providers and insurers would use it to deny health care or coverage of health care to transgender people.

The legislation defined "conscience-based objection" as based on "a sincerely held religious, moral, or ethical belief."


In more detail:

A bill summary states that the bill, which drew opposition from several sources, will give health care providers and payors the right to opt out of participation in or payment for certain health care services on the basis of conscience based objections.

That, according to the ACLU, means a physician can refuse to provide healthcare services to Floridians based on their personal beliefs and provides full immunity from liability over any negative consequences resulting from the denial of care.

Floridians will have to fear discriminatory treatment from medical providers every time they meet a new provider, the ACLU said.


So, thanks to this bill, if someone in Florida dies because they were refused medial treatment on some specious "gounds of conscience", their relatives will be told "suck on it".

This measure is already in violation of Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which will make for some interesting legal fireworks. The UDHR is a fundamental constitutive document of the UN, and by extension, to all 193 signatories of the UN Charter. That's before we start considering US-specific constitutional law.
