This isn’t hyperbole or the need to have a “shock” headline. We are seeing The Handmaid’s Tale play out in Texas and all of the other GQP states are drooling eagerly to see the success so that they can imitate it. The blatantly illegal Texas law passed that tries to…


And It’s Happened In the Past

We all watched what unfolded on January 6th, but for anyone paying attention, this was just the culmination of years of right wing propaganda. During all of that time, very few wanted to say the real words of what was happening in the experiment for Democracy, and those that did…
