The GOP logic: all threats must be dealt with after they happen.
OMG. YES. This is exactly what I’ve been trying to express to those conservatives on FB.
This is the argument I am perpetually having with pro-gun people.
Take away this man’s testicles and his job. We need neither his ideas nor his children’s ideas.

Raising taxes on the wealthy improves the economy.
FYI: The CRS stands for the Congressional Research Service.
I mean, if your kid isn’t doing great at school, what better motivation is there than limiting the amount of food your family can afford? But somehow, I haven’t heard about a piece of legislation that would allow more or fewer tax deductions for the wealthy based on how their kids are doing in school. Weird.
Yeah! There isn’t enough pressure on kids between the ages of six and eighteen anyway! Let’s tell them that how well they do exactly what the teacher tells them will determine how much food their entire family is able to buy! That’ll stop them from having nervous breakdowns and dropping out of school!
because nothing helps kids pay attention in class like stomach-churning hunger pains!
“The bill is sponsored by Sen. Stacey Campfield, R-Knoxville, and Rep. Vance Dennis, R-Savannah. It calls for a 30 percent reduction in Temporary Assistance for Needy Families benefits to parents whose children are not making satisfactory progress in school.”
I dare the Republican members of Congress to take a meeting with her, or any other parent of the victim of gun violence.
Guns Don’t Protect
Can an increase in private gun ownership help crime rates decrease? Statistically, no. But Kyle Coplen, founder of the Armed Citizens Project, told Cenk Uygur that “people that think that there shouldn’t be private ownership of guns, they’re simply pro-rapist, in my opinion.” Watch here as Cenk grills him on his questionable project to put more guns in private citizens’ hands.
Telling people who want to curb gun violence and implement restrictions on the sale of firearms that they’re “pro-rapist” is a brilliant strategy.
Isn’t this a constitutional violation?
Yes. I’m guessing they’re making yet another attempt to get their legislation challenged up to the Supreme Court in hopes of overturning Roe v. Wade.
If this law is signed by the governor and goes into effect, people in North Dakota will have to drive hours to the nearest clinic in Montana, Minnesota, Wyoming, or South Dakota (the latter two have one clinic each).
Residents of North Dakota or any of the states listed, please consider offering to help those who need to access a safe, legal abortion. If you can provide a ride, a place to rest and recover, babysitting, or funds, please contact the Abortion Assistance Blog.
