The GOP tax scam has a "person-hood" bit that furthers their attempts at anti-woman and anti-choice

On page 93 of the “tax bill” Republicans are trying to redefine what constitutes an unborn child as the moment of conception. The tax code is no place to slip in something that could be used to outlaw abortion. A yes vote on this is anti-women & anti-choice.


From Snopes.com regarding this: Thanks to still_one


Placing this language in the bill is a strategic political effort that further highlights an escalating trend and effort to constrain and curtail full reproductive health and rights of American women. […] The term used in the bill, “unborn,” is not a medical or scientific distinction, but a political one. Politicians are now seeking to grant the “unborn” legal rights, but primarily in relation only to women. […]

Substantively, these efforts not only seek to grant legal rights and identities to embryos and fetuses, but they also seek to frame a conflict of interest between women, endowed with constitutional rights, and an embryo or fetus such that legislators will claim there is no difference in the legal status between a pregnant woman and fetus.

Rethugs are destroying themselves by voting for Roy Moore. I'm OK with that.

This article is a bit long but it describes how Alabama will have such a hard time living this whole Roy Moore thing down and how it will put their party in such jeopardy if he wins. He is kind of like a virus that will make them all sick.

I'm really OK with all of it.



This is a man who has said that homosexuality should be a crime.

This is a man who has said that the state should use "the power of the sword" to keep gay parents from raising children.

This is a man who has said that Islam is not a religion and that the First Amendment does not apply to any religion but his brand of Christianity.

This is a man who has argued that a duly elected congressman should not be allowed to take office because he is a Muslim.

This is a man who's used his nonprofit to put money in his own pocket.

This is a man who said he is more akin than he might have known to Vladimir Putin.

And the list goes on, and gets longer with each passing day.

But one thing is certain: If elected to the the Senate, this is not a man who will disappear until this next election. He will use that new platform to preach his message every opportunity he gets. And cable TV news shows will be more than eager to give it to him, because every time he blathers something hateful or embarrassing, they'll then get to weaponize that and use it against other Republicans running for other offices.

Roy Moore would be poison for the national Republican Party, and I'm tempted to let them drink it.

Cross post from General about Rubio that I hopes gets repeated during his next campaign!

"Many argue that you can’t cut taxes because it will drive up the deficit. But we have to do two things. We have to generate economic growth which generates revenue, while reducing spending. That will mean instituting structural changes to Social Security and Medicare for the future,” the senator said. "

What Rubio said needs to be repeated, repeatedly during his next campaign. He wants to cut SS and Medicare and he is from a state that has one of the highest number of people on SS and Medicare in the country.

There should be no reason he is elected again.

I'm bookmarking. I hope other Floridians do too. And remember it when he runs again.


Call these people today!

Stick the name of a Twitter User into this gaget and it will tell you how likely it is

it is that they are a bot.


Here is a tweet that shows it at work, (sorry for the people without a Twitter account. I don't think the photo will show up)


The far right radical evangelical Christian group

Just wanted to say that. They need a name change.

Just like most Muslims are good people but there are a few who are radicalized and crazy, most Christians are good people but there are a few who a radicalized and crazy.

These are the ones who cause such destruction.

I want to separate them and point them out as a group - from regular Christians

Wikipedia has a list of sex scandals from various times frames. I counted the Republicans

and the Democrats and here is what I got, (for these 2 time frames)

2000 - 2009

Republicans - 12
Democrats - 4

2004 - 2017

Republicans - 11
Democrats - 4

More proof that the Republican party is significantly less moral than the Democratic party. Even, or especially since they call themselves the moral majority


New IMPEACH billboard on Times Square!


#iHeartOnCW? ? This concert is playing on the CW channel

Or the one that the Big Bang reruns play on.

Who are these people?????

I am soo old

The five people that can sink the tax plan


Susan Collins said she won’t support any bill that repeals an Obamacare requirement to have health insurance or face a penalty.


Bob Corker, Tennessee ......Corker is a known deficit hawk who won’t vote for any tax plan that adds “one penny to the deficit,” he said.

The Joint Committee on Taxation found that the Senate tax bill would add $1.5 trillion to the national debt,

Jeff Flake, Arizona

Flake, who also is retiring at the end of his current term, is another deficit hawk.


Ron Johnson, Wisconsin

Johnson was the first Republican senator to explicitly come out against the tax plan.


John McCain, Arizona

McCain voted against President Bush’s tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 because he believed they favored the wealthy and would add to the deficit. He still stands behind his decision. “The deficit went up,” McCain said. “Guess what? I was right.”

On Friday, McCain applauded the "much-needed tax relief for hardworking American families" but was only supporting the Senate’s use of regular order while writing and debating the bill. He hasn’t indicated whether he’ll vote for or against it.


Call and support them!!!

Call this way. US senators by calling 202-224-3121. Ask the operator to connect you to the individual office.


I think most won't care about your zip code but in case, if people want to post a zip code for all of these people it would be great!
