Dems want to address the baby formula shortage. R’s vote no. Dems want to try to prevent more domestic terrorists. R’s vote no. Dems want to help Ukraine. 11 Republicans vote no. Dems want to curb big oil price-gouging. R’s voted no. One party cares about people. One doesn’t.

9 months of pregnancy is a Law of Nature. 9 innings of baseball is a Law of History. 9 justices on a Supreme Court is neither. Add two more. Drown out the Trumpies. Save democracy.
Nobody has destroyed the “trust” in the Supreme Court more than Clarence Thomas, who refused to refuse in a case involving his own wife. The shadow docket is a close second. nytimes.com/2022/05/14/us/po…

Appropriately this “don’t hurt Russia too much” piece provoked strong responses with only the pro-Putin crowd liking it. Placating Putin has never worked for anyone other than Putin. Thankfully NATO and the EU have remembered why they exist. nytimes.com/2022/05/11/opini…

How are the republican-led states doing? Lol
Breaking, and astounding: @GavinNewsom projects a $97.5 BILLION budget surplus. Yes, 97.5 billion. Utterly without even close precedent

After reading this thread I understand why Kathy Barnette is surging in the Pennsylvania GOP Senate race. Authoritarian bigotry can come in all sizes, shapes, genders and colors. She is a perfect woman of color for today’s Republican party.
Kathy Barnette forcefully argued it was OK to discriminate against Muslims and compared Islam to Nazism. " She said accepting homosexuality would lead to the accepting of incest and pedophilia. She called a transgender person "deformed" and "demonic." cnn.com/2022/05/12/politics/…

Jennifer Rubin is one of the reasons I am on Twitter. She offers endless good ideas, and shreds bad ones. Best of all she has endless energy and more than enough to keep spot-lights shining on important issues fundamental to our democracy. Thanks, Jen — you are truly a treasure!
By the way, if a woman has a reasonable fear of prosecution because of her gender/pregnancy could she claim asylum in Canada or someplace? Asking for 100 million friends.

Powerful argument…
You know who had a heartbeat? Every child murdered in their school because Republicans are the party of mass shooters. This isn’t about heartbeats. This is about criminalizing women.

Elections in Slovenia and Janez Jansa, a right-wing populist in Slovenia is gone. It’s a bad day for Putin- he is slowly losing his allies in Europe.

To those who voted for me, not to support my ideas but to block those of the extreme right, your vote obliges me. Tonight, I am no longer the candidate of a camp, but the President of all.
À celles et ceux qui ont voté pour moi, non pour soutenir mes idées mais pour faire barrage à celles de l’extrême droite, votre vote m’oblige. Ce soir, je ne suis plus le candidat d’un camp, mais le Président de toutes et tous.

Authoritarian followers don’t like their leaders because they are smart rather because they are nasty and mean and tough and strong! Ron kicked Mickey’s ass for tolerating gays! Strongman stuff for weak minds, and those are the voters Ron wants.
JUST IN: Ron DeSantis’ plan to punish Disney for supporting LGBTQ rights by repealing their special district governing authority would raise taxes on Florida families in the Orlando area by $2,200 each, per @miamiherald.
