Are Senators Susan Collins and Joe Manchin stupid, or do they just think we are? Both self-identified centrist, pro-choice senators voted to confirm Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh , two of the six jurists responsible for curb-stomping American women’s rights back into the 1960s with today’s ruling on Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health . They did so because, at the time, they were assured that both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh would uphold precedent. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, in fact, did not. Whoopsie! Both senators have come out with statements declaring themselves shocked— shocked —that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch would do such a thing—what naughty justices! This is especially sad-making to the senators because both of them met with both judges during their respective confirmation processes, and both judges assured both senators that they would triple dog promise to not undo Roe v. Wade, no backsies. Manchin released a statement declaring that he was … [Read more...] about Are Joe Manchin and Susan Collins Stupid—or Do They Just Think We Are?

Because those are the two things that this court believes, have rights.” Reid interjected, “Or a corporation.” Mystal added, “Or you can incorporate … [Read more...] about Mystal: You Only Have Rights in America if You Are a ‘Cis-Hetero White Man or an Uzi’

Arizona police have arrested a suspect in the shooting death of a 60-year-old food delivery driver—and they say the victim helped crack the case with a photo she took on her phone. Rusty French, 62, is charged with the second-degree murder of Pamela Martinez, 60, on June 11 in Glendale. According to cops, French admits being at the scene of the slaying but said he must have blacked out. Glendale police have not released any details on a possible motive but they noted that French and Martinez did not know each other and that Martinez had not delivered food to French that night. “A stranger ended up taking her life over nothing,” Martinez’s 27-year-old daughter, Monique Daniels, told The Daily Beast. She said her mother moved from Colorado to Arizona in 2004 and worked for two local colleges, doing Uber Eats runs in her free time to make extra money. The widowed mom of two was saving up for a baby shower for Daniels, who has a young son and is eight months pregnant, and to … [Read more...] about How This Grandma Helped Cops Catch Her Accused Killer
