Brilliant move by preganat woman in carpool lane

Pregnant woman given HOV ticket argues fetus is passenger, post-Roe

A pregnant Texas woman who was ticketed for driving in the HOV lane suggested that Roe v. Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court means that her fetus counted as a passenger and that she should not have been cited.

Brandy Bottone was recently driving down Central Expressway in Dallas when she was stopped by a sheriff’s deputy at an HOV checkpoint to check whether there were at least two occupants per vehicle as mandated. When the sheriff looked around her car last month, she recounted to The Washington Post, he asked, “Is it just you or is someone else riding with you?”

“I said, ‘Oh, there’s two of us,’” Bottone said. “And he said, ‘Where?’”

Highly recommend Call the Midwife season 2 episode 2.5 on Netflix

IMDb: Call the Midwife: Episode #2.5


A poor mother of 8 in 1950s London gets pregnant for the ninth time. Emotionally charged but calmly discussed by practical and caring people in charge.

Why can't the War Powers include manufacturing affordable electric cars?

Russia is gaining in Ukraine, and we don't want a hot war with Putin. But why can't war powers help dissuade us from war? We manufactured tons of military equipment in times of war. Let's push an act to force car companies to help us avoid the fallout from Putin's aggression. Why should he and the fossil fuel industry benefit? It's never our turn.

Biden could and should do something to force the production of affordable alternatives to those gouging us for monetary and political gain.

Every time we point out an argument for the truth, we miss the point of the lie.

Gingrich & Ingraham:
"The idea that this was a coup or coup attempt or an insurrection, very briefly why is that spurious claim on its face?" she asked.

Gingrich, red-faced said. "It's not."

This happens 24/7. It has to, because the point is to get the lie/message to their base.

Lying on the right has never been more prevalent or blatant.

Navarro's press conference will likely result in more gun violence.

His rhetoric is poisonous to our government. That is what MAGA truly is - poison. Those in a position of influence choose to stoke revolution. I think with this creep it's because he knows he's guilty, knows TFG is guilty, and opts to destroy the peace and trash our government. Once they succeed, we will be a full blown Banana Republic. And that appears to be the goal of the Tea Party as well.

Guns are for imposing their narrow agenda on us. And they have the nerve to call the rest of us Extremists.
