Anyone who would vote to make my granddaughter a second class citizen is not my friend. No matter how we may agree on other matters, they are not my friend.
They are a danger to the welfare of the citizens of our country and don't deserve their office.
It's now being floated that there needs to be legislation instead of a ruling to insure abortion rights in the US. Roe v Wade was that compromise and it was rejected by the conservative minority.
They've played their hand. There is no more compromise. There is only choice. Choose where to stand and when to take action.
I'm sad today for the people this will hurt but more than that, outraged.
I'm outraged by the Supreme Court's decision. I’ll never back down from this fight. Women must be able to make their own health care decisions, not politicians. I will make it my MISSION to VOTE every last REPUBLICAN out of office!!
“It’s direct, indisputable, empirical evidence that this kind of common claim that ‘the only thing that stops a bad guy with the gun is a good guy with the gun’ is wrong."
In short, Ted Cruz and anyone else who makes this claim is wrong or lying.

Rusty Bowers was a compelling witness, but it was Shaye Moss’s testimony that made my blood boil.
What Giuliani and Trump did to her, her mother, and grandmother was deranged.
While a Republican State House Speaker's testimony held great weight, nothing speaks to the abject cruelty, the ultimate pettiness, the misdirected criminal intent and effect of Trump's sordid, twice-impeached, disgraced time in office, and clear conspiracy to overturn a free and democratic election than the intimidation of this election worker, her mother, and grandmother.
They certainly threatened Bowers and his family, but they did not burst open his grandmother's door waving faked documents and demanding a house arrest. They did that to Moss because she is Black.
I hope numerous torts and civil lawsuits await Trump---on top of the many felony charges I hope Justice is preparing for him. It can't happen soon enough.
Jan 6. panel witnesses recount post-election threats of violence-
The Republicans who run Texas think that more police and more guns and teachers who never signed up or want to be shooters will do a better job than this.
Militarizing the police isn’t working. If they truly wanted solutions, law enforcement would be the loudest voices for gun control.
Methane is the second most potent greenhouse gas contributor.
Today 🇪🇺🇺🇸 and 11 countries adopted a declaration on the global reduction of methane emissions — tackling emissions in the oil and gas sector.
This will advance climate progress and energy security.
@TonyStark By my count, one of the following: a red flag law, better background check laws, or raising the mininum age from 18 to 21 would have saved 194 lives.
Ask any of those 194 families if they wish their loved one were still alive.
I'm sure you'll find a few Steve Scalise-types who think there's no price too great to pay for the freedom to have any gun you want at any time, but probably few.
And it's certainly not that no laws would have stopped mass shootings. Look at all of the countries that have very strict gun control and see how unusual a massacre is. France just refers to the Bataclan massacre as "15 November" because there's only one date of a mass shooting for people to remember. We can't possibly remember dates for American mass shootings unless you were personally affected by one because there's one every day.
