First she'll send the Idaho National Guard to Texas. Then TO THE MOOOOON!
What does the long curled and virulently anti-virginal coif of an aging orange taint signify, oh hairy soothsayer? (Asking for a long-toothed “friend” whose hair sometimes drips black shoe polish.)
I know my local Imam quite well. While the local Muslim community consists primarily of college students, Idaho is pretty accepting of refugees, and has a population that includes a fair number of Iraqis, Somalis, and Syrians in the Boise area as well as an increasing population of Muslims who work at the Chobani yogurt factory in Twin Falls.
Has NO republican ever encountered the quote:"When fascism comes to America....."
They're too busy cheering from the sidelines..
A looooong time ago it was "As American as Mom, baseball, and apple pie." Now it's guns, the bible, and the ostentatious display of the American flag.
HA! Kentucky Lt. Gov. Thelma Stovall got there first, in 1978. Source of all knowledge:
Her most famous intercession as acting governor came in March 1978 when, with Gov. Julian Carroll out of the state, she vetoed the legislature's repeal of its ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. The repeal had come to her as a late attachment to another bill regarding state pensions (House Joint Resolution 20), and Stovall claimed a legal right to reject it on two counts: the Kentucky constitution did not permit bills dealing with more than one subject, and there was a Senate rule that prohibited the introduction of new bills in the final ten days of any legislative session.
In an oral history interview in 1977, Stovall gave her plainspoken view of the ERA: "It's ridiculous after 200 years that women are still second class citizens. No – black men were allowed to vote fifty years before women could vote. As long there is still some statutes that say there are certain things that a woman can not do, we are still second class citizens." After her veto the following year, she resolutely defended her action, declaring: "Every elective official is faced sooner or later with the prospect of acting for political expediency, acting from conscience and law, or avoiding the issue by not acting at all. When the people vote to elect their leaders, they expect them to act and act decisively."
Yes. They use it for vaccine mandates...but only for the covid vaccine. They leave a blank spot for MMR vaccine mandates we have had for decades.
Reaganite Mike Curb was California's Lt. Governor during Jerry Brown, Act I, and did all sorts of this shit when Jerry was out of state campaigning for President. Brown and Curb even did this cat and mouse thing where Brown would claim his plane had double backed over California at the same time as Curb signed something, thus invalidating it.
It appears that McGeachin has a large amount of Barney Fife in her: "We're going to nip this weak-willed Republicanism in the bud!!"
Haha this is a GREAT term omg
That smug glee look, she practiced as a toddler, it's the face she made when she made boom-boom on the potty.
Whar truck? "I'm not allowed to drive here, I'm woman, if I drive male relative must use gas pedal."
Funny that. I think of the Congresswoman whenever a helicopter flies over Tucson. There are no black ones, and as far as I know the closest UN Mission is in Los Angeles, so it would be quite a trip to get here by helicopter. Mrs Chenowith was crazy before crazy became uber-requisite, wasn't she? There were other crazies before her, so I emphasize the requite part.
I'm beginning to question Steve Bannon's commitment to sparkle motion government by, of and for the people, I mean the people just chose who to put in power, and it wasn't team 3 shirts.
Definitely listen to the Terri Gross interview with Fiona Hill today on "Fresh Air." Hill talks spends her final minutes talking about the country's dissolution into mass violence to settle small scores, aided and abetted by a proliferation of weapons and MAGA-like public figures.
