An observation about Amy Coney Barrett's gun rights views.


People with extreme gun rights views like Amy Coney Barrett should be given a bucket and a sponge and sent to the site of a mass shooting to help clean up. @realDonaldTrump

Senator Gary Peters Shares His Abortion Story He's the first sitting senator in history to do so.

United States Senator Gary Peters, a low-key, moderate Democrat from Michigan, is in a very tight re-election race that could decide whether his party wins the Senate. But he’s not the kind of guy who typically makes national headlines. He’s more known for being a dad who enjoys riding his motorcycle and drinking the local beer than he is for saying attention-grabbing things. So it may come as a surprise that with this story, he will become the first sitting senator in American history to publicly share a personal experience with abortion.

“It's a story of how gut-wrenching and complicated decisions can be related to reproductive health, a situation I went through with my first wife,” he told me in a phone interview Sunday afternoon.

In the late 1980s in Detroit, Peters and his then wife, Heidi, were pregnant with their second child, a baby they very much wanted. Heidi was four months along when her water broke, leaving the fetus without amniotic fluid—a condition it could not possibly survive. The doctor told the Peters to go home and wait for a miscarriage to happen naturally.

But it didn’t happen. They went back to the hospital the next day, and the doctor detected a faint heartbeat. He recommended an abortion, because the fetus still had no chance of survival, but it wasn’t an option due to a hospital policy banning the procedure. So he sent the couple again home to wait for a miscarriage. “The mental anguish someone goes through is intense,” Peters says, “trying to have a miscarriage for a child that was wanted.”

These words are as true today as they were in 1965.

“The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible
walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.”

President Lyndon B. Johnson, from remarks on
the Signing of the Voting Rights Act, 1965

Just drove by a small business in our town that has been decked out with Trump signs for weeks.

They have had large signs offering hats and t-shirts for sale. There have been large banners, flags flying and posters all over the front of the building. It looked like Trump Central.

This morning they are all gone. The only thing I could see was a small white sign out by the street that said "Trump 2020 hats" listed with some of the other tool and machinery items they sell.

Were the items stolen? Did the owner have a change of heart? I don't know, but they are all gone.
