Rather than grandstanding for those embryos Gregg, how about giving a damn about living kids?

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Texas leads the nation in school shootings since 2013, according to research by Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization that formed after the deadly 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Tucker Carlson is a clear and present danger to modern American society. If anyone else said/did

anything that could even be remotely construed as calling for or encouraging violence against him for his racist, Nazi assholery, he would squeal and whine and we would see his constipated scowl all over the faux news Nazisphere…to hell with him for being the putrid little shit that he is.

Re: Quitting Twitter or not and why I Left

The question of staying or leaving Twitter was for me, based on a pathological commitment not to put one god damn cent in Elon Musk’s fascist oligarch pocket. With advertising as its revenue base, and advertising based on my personal information that the platform mines and whores to others, the mere presence of my account gives them a fractional amount of money. No fucking way. Not one god damn cent, nor fraction of a god damn cent.

Even some Harris county republicans finally seem to recognize too much hate.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- The Harris County GOP is firing back at one of their own, a Cypress-area precinct chair who submitted a list of resolutions for the party to adopt.

The list authored by Carla Richburg, the chair for Harris County voting precinct 602, includes a ban on sex education in school, mandatory death penalty for criminals who kill law enforcement, a ban on all medical mandates, a ban on all abortions, stop recognizing transgender identity, reduce gay marriage to civil unions, label all Chinese nationalists as spies and forcibly removing them from the country, and wage war on all invaders at the Texas border by deadly force.

Gov hypocrite Abbott strikes again... and since President Biden isn't a vindictive sociopath...

I suspect help is on the way.

If seditionist attempts to overthrow the duly elected President-elect of the United States

are protected by executive privilege then executive privilege is a threat to democracy not a strength of said democracy. This issue should be a no-brainer, even in our flawed judiciary. No wonder Americans are increasingly skeptical of the courts and the administration of “justice.”

Who could have imagined that the film "Idiocracy" would end up underestimating the sheer

idiocy of America? We are living in times of true overachieving when it comes to people’s willingness to embrace the dumb side.

Pfizer booster news. Got the booster (3rd shot) yesterday and not so much as a sore shoulder

this time and no other side effects. How’s that compare with other DU folks?
