US mistakenly killed NGO worker and kids in Kabul drone strike


Texas and Abbott pass law allowing discrimination against LGTBQ/disabled


The Texas wave of laws is even worse than people realize

We're all focusing on the abortion ban and the voter restriction law that Texas passed, but Texas is passing 666 laws (no I'm not joking with that number.)

One of the things they're doing is expanding their ban on CRT teaching at school. Now you're not even allowed to teach that white supremacy and Nazism are bad things. You can't teach about Martin Luther King Jr., etc.


Unsatisfied with just one bill scaring teachers from talking about race in schools, Republican legislators in the special session are advancing yet another supposed critical race theory bill that would remove required civil rights teachings from the curriculum, including writings from Martin Luther King, Jr. and lessons about slavery, white supremacy and the Ku Klux Klan being “morally wrong.”

Texas has legitimately gone full authoritarian fascist. It's what they're planning on doing nationwide. I don't even know how we stop it.

Time to allow people to sue those who refuse vaccines/wearing masks

Time to fight against these abortion bans by having the Feds and Democratic states pass laws allowing citizens to sue anyone that refuses the Covid vaccine or refuses to wear masks.

Let's see the outrage from the fascists on the Supreme Court and the Christian terrorists when they can be bankrupted for not getting vaccinated or wearing masks.

Arkansas is now following Texas' lead.


So it begins. Abortion will now be illegal in all Red states.

Christian Taliban celebrating abortion ban.

I'm on the religious subreddits on Reddit.

Christian conservatives are all celebrating this news, pretending like it will save millions of children's lives. They don't care that women will be hunted down. They don't care that more abortions and dead women will happen. They don't care that Nazi Germany did a law just like this.

They just want people to suffer.

There really is no difference between Christian Conservatives and the Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS. Just as morally bankrupt and evil, prettier packaging.

How can we get a movement going to boycott Texas?

We need to get big companies that have offices in Texas to look into moving their operations out of the state. We need sports teams to boycott the State.

I will never set foot in Texas or buy anything made in Texas.

AP now confirming 11 US soldiers and medic killed


Biden's job ratings decline amid Covid surge, Afghanistan withdrawal in NBC News poll


So stupid. Biden's approval in handling Covid went from 69% to 53%. Only 25% support his handling of Afghanistan.

How is the Covid surge Biden's fault? It's not his fault that so many Americans are anti-vax idiots. I knew DeSantis' strategy of killing off Floridians and blaming it on Biden would actually work in this stupid country.

Meanwhile you literally have CNN/ABC pulling "But her emails" part II to blame Biden for the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal. You have Republicans literally using Taliban propaganda to lie about what's happening over there. They're obviously refusing to talk about how much Trump and Pompeo contributed to this mess.

I'm so fed up with Republicans getting away with everything and Democrats being held to such a stupidly high standard.

Redistricting Issues

Chuck Todd was just talking to Dave Wasserman about upcoming redistricting. Republicans have 164 districts they get to draw the maps for. Democrats only have 46. The rest are independent commissions or mixed.

Wasserman was saying Texas is likely to gain 2 seats, but due to the huge growth around Austin, San Antonio, and Houston, Republicans may have difficulty drawing districts in a way that completely screws over Dems, while protecting their incumbents. But they're going to try.

Colorado will likely gain 1 seat. Wasserman says it will likely be swingy. It's in the Denver area. He said it probably would have gone TFG in 2016, but Biden in 2020.

The big thing they talked about is the power New York has. Dems control New York, and while they're expected to lose 1 seat overall, they have the ability to eliminate 5 Republican districts.

I realize gerrymandering is bad, but as long as the Supreme Court and Congress refuse to stop it, I don't see how it's worth us shooting ourselves in the foot to not gerrymander blue states, while letting Republicans gerrymander red states.

I'm really worried that redistricting alone will give Republicans the House majority.

Any thoughts on how we can keep our majority? What are the chances you think New York will gerrymander out the Republicans to give us 5 more seats?
