Florida and Texas get a pass because they have Republican governors, period. It also explains the health care plan and the tax cut plans, which are both designed to hurt "blue" States (that didn't elect Trump) and advantage GOP States.

Indeed, the GOP's last Repeal and Replace absolutely was all about hurting blue states.

It was pretty much a means for Republicans to accept Medicaid expansion without accepting Obama's Medicaid expansion.

Remember that? All they had to do was say yes. But many Republican Governors did not, thus murdering many poor people and guaranteeing their own special place in Hell. I guess all these supposed "Good Christians" actually worship Satan.

I think you overshot a little, how about if their daughter/granddaughter just dated or HAD SEX with a black man...or just had a very very close friend who was a black man?

Any of those is guaranteed to elicit at least an eye twitch in their supremacist lymph nodes.

HHS just decided that the Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters free birth control doctrine applies to any corporation that objects to birth control for any reason. (Although I'm not sure how a stockholder-owned corporation can have religious or philosophical beliefs. Do they hold a shareholder's election?)

I doubt this will decrease the amount of screwing, but it certainly will increase the number of abortions!

Good job, guys! Law of Unintended Consequences strikes again.

This is what rightwing mental illness looks like, and rightwingers are the ones buying long-guns. Hmm

Speaking of Harvey Milk:

Rick, are you familiar with Frank M. Robinson? He was a speechwriter for Harvey Milk. He was also the author of the classic science fiction novel, The Power, one of my favorites, which was made into a good, but unfortunately not great, movie.
