About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

England to Close Down - The Mash Report

Very funny. And covers pretty much everything since the time warp sending us back to 1970 happened in 2016. WYF indeed...

Abortion rights had a surprisingly hopeful day in the Supreme Court

Wednesday morning’s arguments in the biggest threat to abortion rights to reach the Supreme Court in nearly 30 years went so badly for Louisiana Solicitor General Elizabeth Murrill, who was defending Louisiana’s restrictive abortion law, that by the end even Chief Justice John Roberts appeared uncomfortable with her arguments.
------
These weaknesses in Louisiana’s arguments seemed to trouble Chief Justice Roberts: Twice, Roberts inquired what the “benefits” of such a law were, and he did so in a way that directly contradicted the state’s defense of its law.

The core of the state’s argument, after all, is that its admitting privileges law benefits abortion patients by making abortions safer — and that it does so even though the Supreme Court held in Whole Woman’s Health that a very similar Texas law does not benefit such patients. But Roberts appeared to reject this argument rather explicitly.

“I understand the idea that the impact might be different in different places,” the chief justice told Murrill at one point, “but as far as the benefits of the law, that’s going to be the same in each state, isn’t it?”

We will see, but a sliver of hope?

A special kind of special I say


I covered the licence plate cause manners.

They can not be reasoned with. The cult madness is strong with these ones.

The patient (the country) is in triage, being operated on by a crazed surgeon...



Exactly this cause the only thing that matters is getting that Nazi out of the WH...



I am worried about some of the more ardent Bernie supporters after looking at some of the reactions to Biden busting through yesterday... they are rather ungracious...

The world's only known albino orangutan spotted in Borneo rainforest



The world’s only known albino orangutan has been spotted alive and well in a Borneo rainforest, more than a year after she was released into the wild, conservationists say.

Alba, a blue-eyed primate covered in fuzzy white hair, was taken in 2017 from a cage where she was being kept as a pet by villagers in Indonesia’s section of Borneo, known as Kalimantan.

Alba was released back into the wild in late 2018.

This week, the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation said Alba was spotted as it monitored three other orangutans who were recently released.

Now that is cool...

Patient Zero



Trump: "we're moving aggressively to accelerate the process of developing a vaccine."
The rest of us: ‘’indeed, vote blue no matter who to fully protect the nation from patient zero’’

Comparing Trump to a deadly virus just seems...well, appropriate

By the way Republicans....

'Democrats really must stop': Trump begs his critics to quit treating him like he treated Barack...

During the Ebola outbreak in 2014, Donald Trump repeatedly took to Twitter to attack President Barack Obama’s administration for its public health measures, arguing that all of the medical experts were wrong and that the United States should close its borders to Africa, even though this would prevent doctors from traveling and make matters worse.

Now, in 2020, Trump is facing COVID-19, a far more widely-spread virus, and his administration is facing serious questions about everything from messaging to whether they are following their own containment protocols. But the president, at a rally in North Carolina on Monday, complained that all of these questions are unfair and Democrats are just trying to make him look bad.

Trump, who relentless & baselessly attacked Obama over an Ebola outbreak in the lead up to the 2014 midterms & has systematically destroyed America's pandemic response capabilities since taking office, demands Democrats cease any attacks against him over the coronavirus response


Can't lie his way out of how shit a job he is doing on this one so he wants a courtesy that he would never give anyone. Fucking sociopath....


Chris Matthews announcing his retirement sounds really pissy...

Here's Chris Matthews announcing his retirement during the intro to
@hardball
. It was a pretty low-key announcement considering what happened next (he didn't even finish out the show, and apparently didn't give anyone time to prepare to fill the rest of the hour).


20th Century men in the 21st Century should not get to that pissed off when they choose not to move with the times and get pushed out cause they are misogynistic old dinosaurs...
