15 Weeks


CjonesRGB12062021

Abortion is doomed, and with it, so is the Constitution.

Donald Trump is gone from the White House but his lingering stench will be smelled for at least the next 30 years. This is why Mitch McConnell stole two Supreme Court seats, one from President Obama and the other from President Biden. A juvenile pig like Donald Trump shouldn’t be allowed to order for himself off the McDonald’s kids menu less enough to have three nominations for the Supreme Court.

America, you got robbed.

Amy Coney Barrett, who was the second pick stolen from Democratic presidents by McConnell, tried to make a case that abortions weren’t necessary anymore since women could just drop babies off at police stations and firehouses. This is the best legal mind Trump could find? Forget legal arguments and let’s go with batshit crazy religious zealotry.

Barrett also stated, “There is, without question, an infringement on bodily autonomy, you know, which we have in other contexts, like vaccines.” This is zealotry. I suppose Barrett never caught polio because of an “infringement on her bodily autonomy.”

Mississippi is trying to ban abortion. They enacted a law banning abortion after the 15th week of pregnancy. Texas has it around six weeks (when a heartbeat is detected). The Supreme Court established in 1973 a constitutional right to abortion and prohibited states from banning the procedure before fetal viability, currently around 23 weeks.

Brett Kavanaugh asked the lawyer for Mississippi, “In other words, that the Constitution is neither pro-life nor pro-choice on the question of abortion but leaves the issue for the people of the states or perhaps Congress to resolve in the democratic process?” He’s arguing it’s not a Constitutional right. He’s setting a precedent for their upcoming ruling, which we’ll probably get around June.

The people who argue against abortion are basing it on religion instead of a Constitutional right. Religion should not be a factor in constitutional decisions other than it’s protected. The Supreme Court, which has upheld the separation of church and state, is using the church to decide on matters of states. The Supreme Court is full of zealots.

The Supreme Court didn’t have to take this case, but they did so they can ban abortions. I expect the court to make it legal for states to ban abortions outright…and give Congress the right to ban it nationwide in the future. Vote Democratic, people.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked, “Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?”

Too late.

Tucker Loves The Fetus, Hates The Child


Cjones10212021

Forget seeing Jon Gruden’s emails for a minute. I want to see Tucker Carlson’s emails. I mean, if this guy is flagrantly exhibiting his hate and homophobia to the world on primetime television, I wanna see the stuff he’s secretly saying to his closest confidantes.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten have adopted premature infant newborn twins. Buttigieg, formerly “Mayor Pete,” had taken paternity, or parental, leave to help care for the newborns. Of course, a guy who works so hard at things that he would learn Norwegian just to read one book is the kind of guy who would suck at taking a leave, because he kept working. But, there is an outrage. What is that outrage? Well, I’m not sure. Let’s listen to Tucker Carlson.

Tucker had a huge problem with Buttigieg taking paternity leave, saying on his show that’s rated number-one with white nationalists, “Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child. Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.”

Apparently, it went pretty well. Pete responded, “I guess he just doesn’t understand the concept of bottle feeding, let alone the concept of paternity leave.” By the way, has Tucker ever actually seen a breast? Maybe he lies about it like in the movie, “40-Year-Old Virgin.” It feels like a bag of sand.

Later, Pete told Jake Tapper on his show popular with people who want facts, “I’m not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of my premature newborn infant twins. The work that we are doing is joyful, fulfilling, wonderful work. It’s important work, and it’s work that every American ought to be able to do when they welcome a new child into their family. I campaigned on that.”

Pete pointed out, “What is really strange is that, you know, this is from a side of the aisle that used to claim the mantle of being pro-family. What we have right now is an administration that’s actually pro-family.”

Yeah. What happened to that pro-family stuff Republicans always claimed to champion? Did it go out the window when they made the leader of their party the pussy-grabbing thrice-married father of five with three different women who’s been accused of sexual assault, including rape, over 25 times? Did they chuck their family values out the window with their platforms of patriotism, defense of America from Russia, anti-terrorism, and love of conservative fiscal policies?

Gay marriage is the law of the land now and legal in every state, even Utah. Is Tucker’s attack on Buttigieg’s paternity leave a veiled swipe at gay marriage? But then again, abortion is the law of the land too and Republicans are trying to overturn that, so maybe they’ll do the same with gay marriage. Republicans love trying to control other people’s lives. While screaming about vaccine mandates, they’re mandating what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. But just like some stranger’s abortion isn’t Tucker’s business, either is Pete and Chaz’s marriage…or their adoption of twins.

And what is this business of demanding that every fetus be delivered then abandoning when it becomes a child? People like Tucker demand the birth of a baby, even if it’s the result of a rape, then demand we don’t help through government funds to feed it, educate it, or give it any care. They’re against school lunches. They demand parents to be drug tested before they can receive any assistance. And if the parent tests positive for a little weed, then the child should starve. They also don’t want the child to have any healthcare. No healthcare. No prenatal. No nothing. But, yay it’s born.

Tucker is obtuse and he lacks self-awareness. His outlook is from a rich-privileged-white-kid boarding school education. He did attempt to apologize for his homophobic attack after getting owned by Buttigieg. He replied to Buttigieg, “Last night on this show we made a brief, offhand joke about the Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, and this morning we discovered our error. It turns out that Buttigieg is not a dwarfish fraud whose utter mediocrity indicts the class that produced him. No, not at all. Pete Buttigieg was once the mayor of South Bend, Indiana. So understandably, going forward, we are. And of course we will. Our mistake.”

That’s an apology? I bet Tucker thinks that funny. I bet his audience believes it’s hilarious. But then again, these are the same idiots who believe the hashtag, #LetsGoBrandon is witty and hilarious. Pssst, Republicans. I don’t need a code to say, “Fuck Trump.”

But what sort of audience does Tucker have, I mean, other than white nationalists? OK, they’re all white nationalists, but let’s take a look at how they feel about Pete Buttigieg taking paternity leave. For this, we’re going to scroll through one of my former friend’s Facebook page. My former friend is an alt-right racist Nazi-supporting former Never-Trump who now attacks Never-Trumpers. He is the perfect example of the vileness of the Trump Cult and is up to date on current bigoted and Fox News talking points. He made two posts about Buttigieg’s adoption and paternity leave. Let’s see what he said and how his racist fucknut friends replied.

His first post on Buttigieg is: Transportation secretary, Pete Buttigieg, tonight referred to the two babies he just adopted as, “my new kids”. I’ve never heard a new parent refer to their recently born infants as “my new kids”. It’s Iike he’s referring to a just-purchased turtleneck or badminton racket.

His quibble is with the reference, “My new kids.” Well, you gotta quibble when you don’t have anything, like outrage over Joe Biden liking ice cream. That sonofabitch likes chunky monkey. I digress. Let’s check out a few replies to the post.

They are: “He’s insufferable. Two months paid vacation on the taxpayers dime. Wow.” How many days was Trump at his golf courses?

“It makes no sense on purpose. They are gay men pretending to be “\’parents’. And it’s our shortcomings if we cannot make fantasy into reality.”

“For a NY MinuteI thought you said Pete’s buttplug.”

“Those kids are now positioned, in my opinion, to be the recipients of some major Child Abuse. I feel sorry for those children. They don’t deserve that.” Actually, most child abuse is committed by heterosexuals.

“Please, you deluded gay narcissists, hire a compassionate competent nanny.It’s their only hope.” Maybe they can get Obi Wan Kenobi…he’s their only hope.

My first two takeaways are that these goons are really homophobic and sure know a lot about butt plugs. Then, just as you were wondering about their butt plug obsession, another post was made that drew new homophobic comments. Let’s take another gander if we have the stomach for it.

The second post on Buttigieg is: “I hope Mayor Pete is healing well during his maternity leave.” The guy doesn’t understand the difference between “maternity” and “paternity,” so maybe he shouldn’t be telling women what to do with their bodies, hmm?

Some of those replies are: “I wonder how they did the episiotomy was performed.” Hey, I’m not correcting their grammar.

“I just looked it up and his husband is a drama teacher. So, do they both get maternity leave?” This person complained her maternity leave was shorter than Pete’s paternity leave, so you’d think she’d understand the difference.

“Heard he had difficulty with the lactation Department.”

“Wonder did he have an episiotomy….” An obsession with episiotomies and butt plugs. Nice.

“Pete knows more about umbilical cords, than supply chains.”

There were a lot more, like the comparison that Kayleigh McEnany only took two weeks off compared to Buttigieg’s two months (when he kept working). But maybe Kayleigh doesn’t love her baby as much as Pete loves his twins. The real big takeaway here is, these people are homophobic and ignorant. They don’t know what they’re talking about despite having a lot of opinions on the subject.

The reason these people are so ignorant is because they’re the people Tucker Carlson is talking to. It’s also partly why they’re so racist because Tucker’s show is the highest-rated show among white nationalists.

If your argument is Buttigieg shouldn’t be able to take a paternity leave for so long because other people can’t, then stop opposing it. We’re trying to make parental leave more available to everyone. As Buttigieg said, “It’s important work, and it’s work that every American ought to be able to do when they welcome a new child into their family. I campaigned on that.”

Conservatives always argue that if they didn’t get something good, or things were hard on them, then it should be hard on everyone else. They argue against free tuition because they didn’t get it. I thought we wanted better for our children. Conservatives do not. They don’t want paternity leave or the children they forced to be born to be adopted to people who will provide loving homes and become great parents.

For conservatives, it’s love the fetus, hate the child. It’s like what the late and great George Carlin said.

“Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.”

Your Body My Choice


Cjones10052021

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an urgent recommendation Wednesday for pregnant women and those who have recently given birth to get vaccinated against coronavirus. This will surely piss off Republicans.

The CDC reports that as of September 27, 2021, more than 125,000 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported in pregnant people, including more than 22,000 hospitalized cases and 161 deaths. Last August, at least 22 pregnant women died from the coronavirus. Their babies died too. How many so-called “right-to-life” Republicans have you heard wailing about that?

Studies have indicated that vaccines for both the flu and coronavirus are not harmful to the mother or her baby and in fact, some antibodies are transferred from mom to baby. But of course, Republicans don’t really care about you, the mom, the baby, or anyone’s life except their own.

While Republicans are screaming that the government and Democrats are trying to control everyone’s body with vaccine mandates, they’re fighting to mandate that no woman get an abortion. They claim it’s your body to do what you want with it, even if your body hurts other people’s bodies, but a woman can’t have a say with her body. You only think that’s confusing and hypocritical because it is. This just in: Republicans suck.

Here’s the thing, kiddos: Republicans don’t really care about choice when it comes to the vaccines. They don’t care if it kills you or your family. In fact, they want you to die. Why? Because they want the Biden administration to fail. If you die and the economy is destroyed, that’s bad for the country but Republicans believe that’s great politics. The longer this virus remains out of control, the more it hurts Democrats. Look what Republicans are doing in Congress with the budget. Failing to raise the debt ceiling can create a brand new recession and destroy the economy and Mitch McConnell’s all like, “Well, Democrats better raise it then.”

Why do I think Republicans don’t care if the virus kills you? Republicans and Donald Trump sat back and watched the virus kill over 700,000 Americans. Donald Trump didn’t care about the coronavirus until he caught the coronavirus. Did you see how fast he waddled to that helicopter to get him to the hospital? They didn’t care if it killed people while Trump was in office, so why would they care if it kills people while a Democrat is in the White House?

For Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, or dumbass conspiracy theorist Ben Garrison, too bad there’s not a vaccine for karma, baby.

Now, if Donald Trump was still president (sic), BRRRRR….I just got a chill throughout my entire body. But if Trump was still in the White House….BRRRR…there it goes again. If the other guy was still in charge…BRRRRR stop it!…Republicans would be chasing you down to get the vaccine. Some are still trying to label the vaccine the “Trump Vaccine,” which is an insult to science coming from Captain Combover Hydroxychloroquine. Even now, they’re praising Trump for the vaccine while denigrating the vaccine. Thank you Donald Trump for giving us this horrible thing.

Now, with the CDC advising, not mandating, that women who are preggers get the vaccine, that gives anti-science Taliban Republicans three things to hate. They hate the CDC, they hate the vaccine, and they hate women. They especially hate women making decisions that don’t involve them. Republicans want women barefoot, pregnant, seen and not heard, and as ignorant and stupid about current events and science as they are. Don’t you worry your pretty little head about reconciliation. Isn’t Dancing With The Stars on?

In Texas, where they’ve outlawed abortions and created bounty hunter laws for people to go after abortion providers, they’ve made it legal for someone to sue over an abortion who doesn’t have anything to do with that abortion. There is currently a lawsuit pending in Texas where a guy in a different state, who has never met the woman or doctor, is suing for damages. This guy is not damaged…I mean, yeah, he’s probably all sorts of damaged being from Arkansas and all, but not from this shit. It wasn’t his baby, his doctor, or even his state.

Republicans don’t think you can sue a tobacco company that sold you toxic chemicals to inhale into your lungs, but you can sue a doctor 4,000 miles away in another state for giving an abortion to a woman you’ve never known or touched. And we know you haven’t touched a lot of women because you’re a Republican.

But that’s the Republicans’ playbook. They want to eliminate your decisions regarding your body when it doesn’t have anything to do with them. Now in Texas, they’ve outlawed a woman making choices for her body while making it legal for complete male strangers to control their bodies. And the male majority Supreme Court is saying, “Yeah, OK.”

I’m sure some Republicans will create new conspiracy theories about pregnant women getting vaccinations, like it’ll make goat-head babies. That would be ba’aaaaaad.

But Republicans only care about your baby while it’s in the womb. They only want it born because mass shooters gotta shoot somebody at schools so Alex Jones can later say it never happened.

For Republicans, it’s your body, their choice…or some weird stranger in Arkansas.

Yee-Hawing For Nassar


Cjones09192021

Testifying before Congress, one of Larry Nassar’s victims described him as more of a pedophile than a doctor. Since the FBI helped cover it up, what does that make them? One of his victims testified that an FBI agent tried to convince her that being raped wasn’t a big deal. Was that FBI agent from Texas?

The next question here is: When will criminal charges be filed against FBI agents?

Sorry, I don’t have time for a real long juicy blog today. I have another deadline and I’m really stressed out. Weep for me.

Extra Illegal In Texas


Cjones09162021

If Texas Governor Greg Abbott can eliminate all rapists from his state, then why hasn’t he already done it? This is the new thing for Republicans. Just say some incredibly stupid shit and your base will eat it up. You can’t try that nonsense with Democrats.

Greg Abbott has signed the bill basically banning abortions in Texas. It does allow abortions within the first six weeks, before most women know they’re pregnant. Abbott acted like that was plenty of time for someone to know they’re pregnant…not that he’d know from personal experience…which also gives another example of why men shouldn’t be legislating women’s bodies.

These motherfuckers don’t even understand how mysterious lady parts work, and they want to legislate it? That’s like regulating the internet and asking, “Is the internet on computers now?”.

When asked why Texas is going to force women to carry their rapists’ babies, Abbott said “Texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas by aggressively going out and arresting them and prosecuting them and getting them off the streets.”

You know, the streets of Texas where the streets are full of rapists on the streets that are in Texas with all the streets and raping in Texas. And after we eliminate the rapists from the streets of Texas and eliminate them from the Texas streets, we’ll go after the rapists on the sidewalks of Texas where they will also be eliminated. You can’t avoid Texas justice, you rapists, just by going from the streets in Texas to the sidewalks in Texas, you Texas rapists, you.

OK, if you can eliminate all the rapists from the streets of Texas, then why didn’t you do it before you made aborting your rapist’s baby illegal?

So, why haven’t you already banned rape in Texas, Greg Abbott? Do you hate women so much that you had the ability to rid your state of rapists but will now only do it because you’re being criticized over forcing women to have their babies? How did you break the news to the rapists, I mean, since you obviously care about them more than you do about women?

Here’s the thing: You’re not punishing rapists. You’re punishing women. In fact, you’re punishing women for being rape victims. This is an anti-women law.

There are about 18,000 rapes in Texas every year. Let me rephrase that. There are about 18,000 REPORTED rapes in Texas every year. And why would you report a rape if the state isn’t going to take it seriously? At this very moment, there are over 5,000 rape kits in Texas waiting to be tested.

What untested rape kits mean is that there are 5,000 rapes in Texas being ignored. Nobody’s prosecuting or even trying to find the rapists. Hey, Greg Abbott, don’t you have to find the rapists before you can get rid of them?

With 5,000 untested rape kits sitting on shelves in Texas, that tells me Texas doesn’t give a flying fuck about women. But they’re going to go out and eliminate rape. They have a better chance of eliminating BBQ, Tex-Mex, monster trucks, racism, big stupid hats, and Blue Bell ice cream than they do of getting rid of rapists.

What does a rapist in Texas look like? To start with, they probably look a lot like Greg Abbott. This abortion ban rapes women.

Texas Nine-Nine


Cjones09092021

Good news, folks. The Texas whistleblower website, where nosy uptight Yee-Haw MAGAt fucksticks with too much time on their hands can report on their neighbors who they suspect might maybe be thinking about getting an abortion, has been shut down…again.

For now, the whistleblower site is redirecting to a anti-choice site until they can find a permanent hosts that doesn’t mind religious zealots entering personal information that doesn’t belong to the persons doing the entering. The fact the whistleblower site is redirecting to an anti-choice site proves it’s purely political. Being that is is religious, it should have no function with government, city, state, or federal. There’s this thing in the United States Constitution that knuckle-dragging fundamentalists find very inconvenient that says something about separation between church and state.

The redirection to a fundamentalist crazy nutjob fuckwit website also proves it doesn’t have anything to do with the sanctity of life and more to do with forcing others to live by the imaginary morals of religious zealots.

This system of tattle-telling on your neighbors is ripe for abuse, just as some people abuse the system to report child abuse. While there should be a channel to report that a child is being abused, it’s often used by people to go after personal enemies. And with this abortion whistleblower shit, it will be abused every time it’s used.

How do you know when someone got an abortion? How do you know they even got one? It’s private information. It’s not even your information to report. And no, it’s not like child abuse where you’re saving a child. You’re only using it to punish women, mandate your religion onto others, or just to hassle someone who may have stunk up the hallway of your apartment building by cooking Indian food.

There is a long history of authoritarian governments encouraging their people to spy on their neighbors.  In 1933, the Nazis issued a decree requiring Germans to turn in anyone who spoke against the party, its leaders, or the government. They also required them to report Jews for being Jews.

Mao’s China and Stalin’s Soviet Union both encouraged citizens to report enemies of the party and even people they suspected of having anti-communist thoughts.

The Inquisition was religious indoctrination, or reeducation, by groups within the Catholic Church to force Jews and Muslims to become Catholic…or die. Torture was often used in France, Spain, and Portugal to force people to see the Christian god and not their heathen gods. Usually, when someone has their testicles pounded by mallets all day, they will eventually see Jesus.

Guess how Church found the heathens? Yup, by informants. You did not want your neighbor to catch you eating a falafel.

Systems of ratting on your neighbors hasve been used in autocratic nations like Hungary, East Germany, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, and throughout Islamic Kingdoms. There’s one other place. The United States of America.

During the Red Scare of the 1940s and 1950s, Senator Joseph McCarthy conducted hearings to find communists without our government and in other institutions, like in business, education, and Hollywood. Everybody seemed to forget for a while that it’s not actually illegal to be a communist. I guess it’s like those Twilight vampire movies. There’s no crime in liking them but you don’t want anyone to know you do. It’s best to pretend you’re totally unfamiliar with Team Edward and Team Jacob. A friend told me about them. Quite frankly, I’d rather be accused of being a communist.

McCarthy and fellow Republicans would accuse people of treason and subversion for not thinking like them…or even suspecting they weren’t thinking like them. Careers were destroyed and people were ostracized. The biggest un-American Joseph McCarthy exposed was Joseph McCarthy.

This whistleblower bullshit to report on neighbors in Texas suspected of having an abortion is un-American. And as usual, the greatest threat to America are Republicans. Why do we need authoritarian tactics to save our democracy?

Isn’t it bizarre the people who espouse Christian values are the least Christian like? Isn’t it mind boggling that the people who pretend to be the greatest American patriots keep creating systems of fascism?

Dear pro-lifers: Stop acting like Nazis.

GOP Stampede


Cjones09052021

Now that Texas has effectively banned abortion, expect other yee-haw states to follow suit sooner than later.

You might think some of these states will pause to see what the Supreme Court does in its next session, but the court already weighed in to say they’re not weighing in. Plus, Republicans are too giddy to stamp out women’s rights to wait to any longer.

One of the biggest outrages in all of this is that Republicans are winning in this nation despite the majority of the United States population disagreeing with them. Despite a majority of Americans voting against Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020, voting against Senate Republicans, and being pro-choice, conservatives will probably control the Supreme Court for the next 30 years. Did I just ruin your weekend?

Republicans are in denial that the majority of the nation wants nothing to do with them or their racist xenophobic misogynistic policies. And if they did realize that, they’d still insist on forcing the rest of the nation to live by their “values.”

The Texas law bans abortion after six weeks and encourages lawsuits against abortion providers and anyone assisting in the abortion. This includes people who may drive someone to get an abortion. Lyft has responded by creating a legal defense fund for their drivers when Texas yahoos sue them. They’re also donating $1 million to Planned Parenthood. Let’s hear it for Lyft. Thank you, Lyft.

After Lyft’s announcement, Uber commended their competitor and are now promising to pay their drivers’ legal fees when sued by Texan troglodytes. Other companies speaking out include American Airlines, Hewlett Packard, and Silicon Laboratories. Dating sites Tinder and Bumble are setting up funds to help Texas women seek abortions outside that state. In yesterday’s blog, I called for GoDaddy to take down the tattletale site where fucknuts and rednecks can report people who helped with an abortion. Before the day was over, GoDaddy took ’em down. No, not because of me but because of thousands like us telling them to do it.

I would really like to see Texas’ sports teams go after this law, including the Astros, Rockets, Texans, Cowboys, Rangers, Stars, Mavericks, and Spurs. This goes for the leagues too. C’mon, NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB. We can include soccer too and those fake sports, NASCAR, WWE, and other wrestling companies.

What’s been overlooked by many because of the abortion bill are new laws enacted on the same day in Texas that make it harder for black people to vote and grants the right to carry a concealed gun without a permit which probably includes precincts where black people are trying to vote. I’m only surprised Texas Republicans didn’t write a new law making it legal to shoot abortion providers.

All these allies now need to target other states that intend to follower Texas. The states so far where Republicans have vowed to copy Texas’s hater law are Arkansas, Florida, South Dakota, Idaho, Indiana, and Oklahoma. Expect every Trump-voting state to make similar promises over the coming weeks.

The stampede is coming and if the courts won’t protect constitutional rights and women, then maybe businesses will. But you have to help too. Don’t buy shit made in these yee-haw states. Don’t buy Whattaburgers or beef jerky out of Texas. Don’t buy orange juice from Florida. Don’t buy Idaho potatoes. Don’t purchase a surrey with a fringe on top. Look up what a surrey is to make sure you don’t buy one. Be anti-yee-haw.

And if you live in one of these fucknut states…MOVE!!!

Abortions and BBQ


Cjones09042021

Not only does the new anti-choice law in Texas make getting or giving an abortion illegal after six weeks, even in the case of rape and incest, it will punish anyone who helps a woman get an abortion. And this isn’t one of those bullshit laws like the one in Alaska that makes it illegal to push a live moose out of an airplane. People helping other people get abortions happens way more often than moose-pushings from airplanes.

The penalty for helping a woman get an abortion in Texas is $10,000. Plus, any Texan can bring a lawsuit against any abortion provider or anyone who helped with an abortion. How does that work where you can sue someone when nothing damaged you? I can see you being able to sue if a moose lands on you after being pushed from an airplane, but not when someone else getting an abortion doesn’t affect you.

You know how often white Christian right-wingers believe they were violated. Beyoncé playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show hurts their feelings. They’re going to go crazy with this shit.

And get this: There is a website in Texas set up by anti-choice fuckers that describes any helping as “aiding and abetting.” I’m a-betting these fuckers are assholes because what’s considered “aiding and abetting” doesn’t just include the abortion providers, but anyone else who assisted. This includes anyone who drives someone to a clinic which will probably create a new Uber policy where you have to click a box before ordering your ride promising your destination isn’t to receive an abortion. This can also include anyone who hands out a pamphlet explaining how to get an abortion or where to go. Someone who pays for an abortion can be fined and sued. Maybe it’ll include any judges who vote against this law. Maybe it’ll include protesters. Maybe it’ll even include political cartoonists which are rarer in Texas than abortion clinics.

People are already attacking the website but they’ve yet to shut it down. People are hitting this website with false claims, photos of Shrek, and furry porn. Wait. What the hell is “furry porn?” Do I need to Google this and see what it is? Sure, I’ll take one of for the team and…OH MY GOD!!!! DO. NOT. GOOGLE. FURRY. PORN. Trust me on this. That is no way to treat the rabbit from Zootopia. I’m going to have some serious bunny butthole nightmares. What was I talking about? Oh yeah…this website.

Basically, people are bombing this website with…really? The rabbit? I’m sorry….back to work. They’re bombing this website with a lot of shit in order to shut it down. It’s like that time TikTokkers ordered all those reservations for Trump’s Tulsa hate rally and the campaign set up a giant screen outside for the overflow crowd for the millions of MAGAts they were expecting, but then nobody showed up which embarrassed the campaign and Brad Parscale got fired. That was a good day. Those TikTokkers did to Donald Trump what I just saw a cartoon Michael Jordan doing to Bugs Bunny’s girlfriend. Why so many rabbits?

The website is Prolife Whistle Blower or some shit like that. Normally, I hate to post links on my blog for jerkwads but I’m all for chicanery, shenanigans, and being a stinker. There’s another route you can take which is to report the site to its host which is the same host for this very blog, GoDaddy.

This anti-choice site that helps uptight knuckle-dragging cave-dwelling Neanderthals rat (Agh! Just got another furry porn flashback) on people for doing something that’s a very private and sensitive manner may be violating GoDaddy’s Terms of Service. So, if GoDaddy doesn’t want to help create a bunch more daddies, including uncle daddies and rapist daddies, they’ll take this hate site down.

There is a tipline at GoDaddy. There is another page for abuse reports. Finally, you can just send them an email at privacy@godaddy.com. At the very least, GoDaddy will not want to be bogged down in a political quagmire and will delete the site for that reason alone.

If everything else fails, I got some Lola Bunny pics you can send them.

Last Stand


cjones09032021

This is a big deal. This isn’t like one of those times where North Carolina, Alabama, or Kentucky tampers with a constitutional right only to have a court step in and slap it down. This infringement on a constitutional right in Texas will probably stand. No, it’s not going to stand because it’s right. It’ll stand because it’s wrong and we allowed a racist orange idiotic imbecile who was installed by a Russian dictator to have three picks for the Supreme Court. We even let the Republican Party and the orange idiot steal two of them.

Now do you see now why liberals need to vote?

Texas has basically ended abortion in Texas…which may lead to it being outlawed throughout the rest of the nation. The new law bans all abortions after six weeks, even in the case of rape and incest. It even allows punishment and lawsuits against anyone who aids in an abortion, from the nurse to an activist handing out pamphlets, or an Uber driver who takes a patient to a clinic. And most women who become pregnant don’t realize it until AFTER six weeks. It’s going to be just nearly as hard to get an abortion in Texas as it is to find decent dental work.

The Supreme Court weighed in last night without weighing in. All three Trump/McConnell selections voted with the other two conservatives to let this infringement stand, even though the Supreme Court ruled nearly 50 years ago that abortion is a constitutional right and states can’t be allowed to infringe on that right. Fuck precedent, right?

What happens now? Rich women in Texas will simply travel to blue states for abortions…even the conservative blonde ones (this isn’t a slap on blondes, but have you been to Texas? It’s like a Fox News panel but dumber). Poor women will be forced to travel to Mexico (where legal standing varies state-by-state) or into back alleys in Texas. Other yee-haw states will follow Texas’ lead and outlaw abortion…history books, math, and science.

We won a battle by defeating Republicans and Trump in 2020, but the war continues. We are still in the Trump era. The Trump/McConnell picks could be on the highest court in the land for the next 30 years.

And women, I am so sorry. If you think attacks on your rights stop here in Texas, you’re wrong. This will only embolden white conservative Christian men. If you are a woman in the United States, you are under attack.

This truly sucks.
