    How much Florida money that could have been spent on preparing for hurricanes and for dealing with their aftermath did Ron DeSATAN divert to send legal migrants who had applied for asylum (and had asylum hearings scheduled) on planes from TEXAS (not his state of Florida) to Martha’s Vineyard in MASSACHUSETTS (also not his state) to send a “message” to “Sanctuary Cities,” a designation that Martha’s Vineyard has never adopted (though Boston has)?

    Ron DeSATAN needs to be prosecuted for:

    1. Kidnapping (trafficking people across lines using deceptive coercion and false inducement, lying about where they were being taken [the migrants were told they were going to Boston] in consideration of false promises [promises that jobs, housing and other services had been arranged when none had])

    2. Obstruction of official federal proceedings since many of the migrants already had federal asylum hearings and ICE check-ins schedule that were completely disrupted

    3. Conversion of state funds appropriated and designated for specific purposes to other unauthorized and completely illegal purposes

  2. about 6 hours ago on Clay Jones

    As Ron DeSATAN and Marco Rubio run for reelection campaigning against all that “socialist welfare,” ironic that they have to go begging Joe Biden to bail them out of the consequences of their climate denial.

    Maybe they can get Donald Trump to make the hurricane change course by thinking about it.

    And, since the track record on that is so poor (both on Trump actually thinking and on it having an effect on anything), when that fails there’s always the good ol’ Sharpie®, but the track record there is no better.

    And speaking of Martha’s Vineyard (which, by the way, is NOT a declared “Sanctuary City”), maybe those trying to evacuate can get a free ride to Massachusetts if they just tell Ron DeSATAN that they are from Venezuela.

    — Sadly, they also see Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale as an instruction manual, instead of the warning it should be read as.

    In Iran, the Islamic GOVERNMENT mandates that women MUST wear the hijab.

    In India, the Hindu GOVERNMENT mandates that women MUST NOT wear the hijab.

    In the alt-“Christian” Christofascist Caliphate of Talibangelistan Y’all Qaeda of Gilead, they want the GOVERNMENT to mandate that women MUST BE FORCED to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term.

    In the secular authoritarian dictatorship of China, they want the GOVERNMENT to mandate that women MUST BE FORCED to abort a wanted pregnancy is she has already met her child quota.

    Morality police = abortion police — both want to control women.

    PROgressives want to KEEP BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT out of women’s personal private decisions about what they can and can’t wear and what they can or can’t do with their bodies.

    Women must be free to make their own personal private decisions.

    Adam and Eve? According to the Bible legend, Eve was formed from Adam’s rib. That means “she” was born with MALE DNA. So those who believe these myths to be literally true have to admit that either gender identity is fluid, or it really was “Adam and Steve.”

    Religious conservatives: people who believe in fairy tales as literal fact.

    I guess that’s what it means to be “child like.”

    There are many OPINIONS about when human LIFE becomes a human PERSON. So whose OPINION matters?

    Theocratic religious tyrants believe that it should be the GOVERNMENT who decides.

    Those who respect human rights believe only the WOMAN whose body is being occupied should get to decide.

    There is no analogous situation in which a male is ever forced to use his body to keep another person alive, even in cases where the human personhood of the other person is not in question.

    Let’s say there are estranged identical twin brothers who are a perfect genetic donor match. One needs the other to donate bone marrow to save his life, but the brother does not want to. They are both adults, undeniably human persons. Does one have the right to force another to use his body to keep him alive if the latter doesn’t want to? Even just for the brief time of the bone barrow transplant that will quickly and fully regenerate — nothing compared to nine months of an unwanted pregnancy?

    They are both males.

    Does the requirement to use your body to keep someone else alive only apply to females?

    But glad to see that @ToonaD68 admits the point that was made: that conservatives want the GOVERNMENT to decide, while PROgressives want each woman to decide.

  7. 1 day ago on Michael Ramirez

    And now we have @ToonaD68 who can’t tell the difference between pre-sentient potential human life and the innocent life of an actual human person whose most private body parts are being occupied. If she wants it, it is a miracle; if not, it is a curse.

    When does human LIFE begin? One thing is medically and scientifically certain: Human LIFE does NOT begin at fertilization. Both the egg and sperm were alive and of the human species (i.e., human life) long before that point.

    HUMAN LIFE goes through various stages — sperm and egg (alive and of the human species, ergo: HUMAN LIFE, long before fertilization), zygote, embryo, fetus, baby, toddler, pre-teen, young adult, adult, senior.

    The real issue is not when life BEGINS, but when the human LIFE becomes a human PERSON — what qualities of human personhood are necessary to have developed in order for that “life” to develop into a human “person.”

    Just being human life? Being alive? So then that would mean the sperm and egg are human persons?

    When the heartbeat starts? A pulsating throb of a few cells begins about six weeks that some call a “beating heart,” though nothing resembling an actual cardiac organ exists yet.

    When measurable EEG brain waves begin? Late in the second trimester. Since the cessation of measurable EEG brain waves is the definition of clinical death (at which point organs can be removed), it seems that the very minimum standard for when human LIFE becomes a human PERSON would be the onset of measurable EEG brain waves.

    When the fetus is sufficiently viable that it no longer needs to occupy the most private part of a woman’s body?

    When the fetus actually exits the birth canal to actually become an autonomous person with its own individual experience and becomes a BABY?

    According to anti-choice “logic” based on LIFE rather than PERSONHOOD:

    Menstruation is murder!

    Male masturbation is genocide!

    And now we have @cwg who wants to show everyone it does not understand a single point that was made.

    BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT is what Republicans and Talibangelical alt-“Christian” Christofascists want.

    Size of government? Well, they do want ginormous military.

    But really, BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT is not about size. It is about GOVERNMENT butting its big intrusive nose into the private lives of everyday citizens and working people. There is no way in which PROgressives want to micromanage people’s private lives and personal behavior.

    But Republicans and Talibangelical alt-“Christian” Christofascists want to dictate people’s most private decisions, such as trying to dictate control over every aspect of our private lives, including private relationships (dictate who you can or can’t marry or even what behavior is allowed behind closed doors), private medical choices (reproductive choices such as abortion or contraception, medical marijuana, end of life choices, stem cell therapies, gender-identity care), tell us what books we or our children can have access to, or try to force PRIVATE religion into PUBLIC policy and religious rituals into public meetings or subsidize it with special tax advantages (socialized religion).

    The only ways in which Democrats want bigger government are to PROTECT the powerless.

    • To prevent ginormous corporations from being “free” to run roughshod over the rights of workers, consumers and our shared environment.

    • To promote common infrastructure, public health and safety and public education that is beyond what individuals can accomplish on their own and which requires coordination of public resources.

    Corporatist conservatives hate PROTECTIVE government for exactly the same reason criminals hate police, but they want BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT to nose its way into the most personal aspects of our private lives.

    [To correct senior moment in earlier comment]

    And there goes @Sammy again, ignoring my response to @Patjade that pointed out the explosion in numbers from the relative trickle under Obama — a forty-year low — to the massive migrant caravans in the thousands under Trump, and I cited the specific causes and provided sources.

    But @Sammy does what conservatives do: PROJECTION — ignoring the litany of actual top Republican pedophiles and their enablers and fantasizing about imaginary Democrats for which, unlike the list I provided from his side, he still has not one actual example. Typical.

  10. 3 days ago on Michael Ramirez

    Conservatives like @Sovan just don’t get it. BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT is government micromanaging people’s most private decisions, such as trying to dictate control over every aspect of our private lives, including private relationships (dictate who you can or can’t marry or even what behavior is allowed behind closed doors), private medical choices (reproductive choices such as abortion or contraception, medical marijuana, end of life choices, stem cell therapies, gender-identity care), tell us what books we or our children can have access to, or try to force PRIVATE religion into PUBLIC policy and religious rituals into public meetings or subsidize it with special tax advantages (socialized religion).

    Telling states that they have the right to micromanage those decisions is still BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT and Iran-style morality police, just at a more localized level.

    BIG INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT is that government, at whatever level, makes your personal decisions for you.

    And the comparison to slavery is nonsensically absurd. African Americans forced into unpaid labor took away the rights of actual human persons with sentient consciousness. The onset of measurable EEG brain waves, a minimal standard for the mere beginning of sentience, does not occur until late in the second trimester, after which no elective (“on demand”) abortion has ever been legal anywhere in the United States.

    Talibangelical alt-“Christian” Christofascists are the ones who want their morality police to FORCE WOMEN TO REMAIN PREGNANT against their will, all the way to LABOR (forced labor), making WOMEN the slaves.
