Fixing the House would be a piece of cake.

Just need a block of R's to switch parties. What do they have to lose? Anyone to the left of MTG is going to get primaried anyway.

Trying to grasp the news that EVERY Trump business in NY is being shivved.

Really?? Could that actually be a pony under the tree this time??

To all you computer security mavens: how secure are VPNs?

Imagining someone in a hardcore forced-birth state researching options.

I appreciate people's commentaries on the legal ins and outs of Aileen Cannon's rulings.

They're interesting and I learn new things. But...

Right now I firmly believe that what Cannon does is driven solely by what powerful people are telling her. If, for instance, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito say she should condemn Biden to burn at the stake as an acolyte of Satan and they can convince her she can make it happen and get away with it, she will so do it.

Y'know, I find myself wishing sometimes that SS checks would be suspended for a while.

Because of the debt ceiling, that is. It's mean of me to think like that, I know, but imagine the weeping and wailing and gnashing of MAGA teeth.

Well, son-of-a-bitch!

A lot of people have expressed the opinion that America would be better off as a monarchy.

Cool idea. Let's ask Barack Obama, George Soros, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, or Stacy Abrams if they'd be interested in being the monarch.

Speculation: Kacsmaryk has a back channel to 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

I'm speculating that they told him they won't uphold a full-on mifepristone prohibition, so he's looking to punt in such a way that doesn't get him reversed but also not lynched by forced-birthers.

I think I'll start a spinoff to the "Pro-Life" movement.

I'll call it "Pro-Fatherhood."

The central principle is this: every man will be legally required to contribute financially to every child he has ever sired, full stop. Since life "begins at fertilization", that implies that every man will be retroactively billed for expenses incurred by a woman in pregnancy before the child is tested to know that it is his.

Be a big hit, dontcha think?
