WE WANTED TO FOLLOW UP WITH A QUESTION BUT EACH OF US WAS EITHER USING A HAND TO HOLD OUR NOSE OR FANNING WITH A HAND TO GET THE STENCH OF MARJORIE AWAY -- FAR, FAR AWAY.
WHILE WE WERE SHAKING OUR HEADS IN DISGUST, MARJORIE'S FORMER ROLL DOG, THE ILLITERATE AND INCONSIDERATE LAUREN BOH-BOH BOHBERT CAME RUNNING OVER TO EXPLAIN THAT MARJORIE'S BEEN PACKING ON THE POUNDS SINCE HER HUSBAND WALKED OUT ON HER SO SHE'S GONE ON OZEMPIC "AND THE SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE GAS AND LOUD FARTS."
STINKY GAS, BOE-BOE, POSSIBLY LETHAL.
MARJORIE MIGHT AGREE WITH US OR SHE MIGHT NOT. SHE OPENED HER MOUTH TO SPEAK BUT ALL ANYONE COULD HEAR WAS "PPPPPPFFFFFFFFFTTTTT."
Last night, I said SALON won The Big Idiot Sweepstake
because yesterday they 'honored' the Iraq War by printing the whore
Norman Solomon who whored in his piece on Iraq as he always does. We
noted the way that he left Barack Obama out of the history and that he
lied in real time when he was pimping Barack because he didn't tell
audiences he was a pledged delegate for Barack. We noted how he spent
the eight years of Barack's presidency ignoring Iraq. And we noted how,
in the middle of Lt Ehren Watada's court martial, Norman started
publicly calling for him to drop everything to defend a journalist who
didn't want to reveal her sources -- as though that were the biggest
issue on Ehren's plate.
I always forget
MOTHER JONES exists. And that they allow vermin like David Corn to
occupy space there. David spent the lead up the war and the early year
attacking anti-war people -- like members of ANSWER. He also felt the
biggest tragedy of the Iraq War was the outing of Valerie Plame (a CIA
agent). But it takes a lot of gall for David Corn -- who still hasn't
apologized for his many lies about Russia and the whole pee-pee Trump
tape or, for that matter, lying about Bill Clinton pardoning two members
of the Weather Underground -- to write a piece about the lack of
accountability and how the liars and cheerleaders of the Iraq War were
rewarded and publish it at MOTHER JONES where the blogger that they
hired after the start of the illegal war was . . . Iraq War cheerleader
Oh, are we still pretending his health problems are about to send him to a grave?
remember those e-mails, should we publish them here, from the two dumb
women who run MOTHER JONES? About we shouldn't criticize Kevin because
of his health. What was that? 10 years ago? I think there are over a
million dead Iraqis with family and friends that with the dead had even
two -- let alone 10 -- more years of life.
link to their garbage. MOTHER JONES is garbage island. Since those
two women took over, it has become worthless -- that's David Corn,
that's Kevin Drum, that's their attack on rape victims. It's really
past time that the left policed itself and grasped that Clara and
Monika don't belong anywhere on the spectrum of the left -- or, for that
matter, in publishing.
By the way, David
rushes to praise John McCain -- who pushed for the Iraq War -- but can't
take a moment to credit any of the many activists around the world who
stood against the illegal war. It was that way in real time, please
remember. He spat on protesters in one column after another and he
ignores them and the Iraqi people in his column today which is nothing
but his usual garbage of shirts-and-skins with him choosing political
Let's note some of the people who had skin in the game.
Janeane Garofalo comes immediately to mind.
didn't mouth something once in London so I guess it doesn't matter that
she spoke out publicly against the war before it started and after it
started. She took it to Bill O'Reilly's face. She was right. He was
wrong. It would be nice if Sam Seder -- who stabbed her in the back --
could take a moment this week to credit her -- we'd even include a video
of it here -- for being a brave voice who spoke out against the war.
She became more prominent as a progressive when she voiced opposition to what became the 2003 Iraq War, appearing on CNN and Fox News to discuss it. She said that she was approached by groups such as MoveOn.org and Win Without War to go on TV, because these organizations say that the networks were not allowing antiwar
voices to be heard. Garofalo and the other celebrities who appeared at
the time said they thought their fame could lend attention to that side
of the debate. Her appearances on cable news prior to the war garnered
her praise from the left and spots on the cover of Ms. and Venus Zine. Garofalo has had frequent on-air political disputes with Bill O'Reilly, Brian Kilmeade, and Jonah Goldberg.
Yes, I think lots of people are eager to obtain weapons of mass destruction. But there's no evidence that he (Hussein) has weapons of mass destruction. There's been no evidence of him testing nuclear weapons.
We have people that are in our face with nuclear weapons. We've got
Iran and North Korea. We've got a problem with Pakistan. You know, I
don't know what to say about that. There's a whole lot of people that
are going nuclear. And I think that Saddam Hussein is actually, with the
evidence, the least able to use nuclear weapons and the least obvious
offender in that area at this moment.

In March 2003, she took part in the Code Pink anti-war march in Washington, D.C. That autumn, she served as emcee at several stops on the Tell Us the Truth tour, a political-themed concert series featuring Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Tom Morello, and others. Throughout the year, Garofalo also actively campaigned for Howard Dean. While on Fox News' program The Pulse,
O'Reilly asked Garofalo what she would do if her predictions that the
Iraq war would be a disaster were to turn out wrong. Garofalo stated:
I would be so willing to say, 'I'm
sorry'. I hope to God that I can be made a buffoon of, that people will
say, 'You were wrong. You were a fatalist.' And I will go to the White
House on my knees on cut glass and say, 'Hey, you and Thomas Friedman
were right ... I shouldn't have doubted you ...'

+ in 2022, 315 anti-LGBTQ bills
were introduced in state legislatures across the U.S. The number of

in this country. Fortunately, some people are saying "NO!" to that
war. Kaitlyn Kennedy (TAG 24) reports on Wednesday in Iowa:
In the latest attack on LGBTQIA+ rights, eight Iowa Republicans have submitted a proposal to amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

The same day they put forward their resolution, Iowa Republicans also introduced HB 508, which would deny same-sex marriages in the name of "religious liberty."

of high-school and college student groups also participated in walkouts
on Wednesday to protest the anti-LGBTQIA+ moves. They took to the
streets and even marched to the Iowa State Capitol, chanting slogans
like "We say gay" and "Trans rights are human rights."
Students from 26 high schools and two colleges have coordinated the walkouts to take place throughout the day across the state.
a coalition of high school students that fights “discriminatory
legislation,” and the Iowa Queer Student Alliance, a group for LGBTQ
high school and college students, organized the day of protests.
Bullock, a member of the Iowa QSA, said the group is leading walkouts
for two reasons: to educate students about the bills under consideration
in the state Legislature and to get the attention of the lawmakers
behind those bills.
are trying to make it so that it’s impossible for those in power to
ignore us,” said Bullock, who is a senior at Ankeny High School, just
north of Des Moines. “Because right now, there are people who are going
to the Capitol and attending those public hearings about these bills —
they have been teachers, psychiatrists, doctors, students, parents,
administrators, all sorts of people who come and say, ‘This is harmful.
This will have bad effects. This will cause bullying, it will cause
depression and anxiety and it will not be safe for the LGBTQ+ community
in our schools.’ And they just will not listen.”
By mid-afternoon Wednesday, students and local reporters started to share images and videos from the walkouts on social media.

but the LGBTQ+ community is under attack. The world has changed but
bigots are having a really hard time grasping that.
Republican lawmakers on Wednesday advanced legislation that would
prevent transgender people from changing their driver's licenses and
birth certificates, a move that officials warn could cost the state
millions in federal funding.
my view, this body should do what’s right regardless of the cost,” said
Republican Rep. Gino Bulso, the bill's sponsor. “I don’t care what it
costs to do what’s right.”
advocates have long argued that having a driver's license or birth
certificate match a person's identity is not only personally important
but also beneficial to avoiding harassment.
enacted, the proposal would define male and female in state law and
base people’s legal gender identities on their anatomy at birth. A
handful of Republican-led states have introduced similar bills —
including Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma — as GOP lawmakers have put
transgender issues at the forefront of their legislative agenda.
officials tasked with calculating the fiscal impact of bills have
stated that Bulso's bill would likely open the state to “civil
litigation and could jeopardize federal funding" because it could
conflict with federal rules.
could open the state up to lawsuits and to a loss of federal funding?
Well hate apparently trumps common sense. At least we can applaud the
bigots of Tennessee for sporting their hate proudly and not trying to
dress it up with the pretense so many other bigots do by insisting it's
to 'save the children.' Shawna Mizelle (CNN) notes Tennessee as well:
The state Senate on Thursday passed a bill along
party lines to limit “adult cabaret performances” on public property so
as to shield them from the view of children, threatening violators with
a misdemeanor and repeat offenders with a felony. It was passed by the
Tennessee House last week and Gov. Bill Lee, a Republican, has said he
will sign it.

Schatzline has made his entire personality attacking the LGBTQ

“This report is yet another piece of evidence that we aren’t doing enough to

“Improving the situation will mean making broad structural and societal

The American Civil Liberties Union said 336 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced in statehouses across the country in 2023, eclipsing the record 315 tallied
by the Human Rights Campaign in 2022. Many bills target transgender
youths, prohibiting gender-affirming care or participation in school
sports teams aligned with their gender identity.
can’t be understated, the degree of transphobia we are seeing among
politicians,” said Gina Sequeira, co-director of the Seattle Children's
Gender Clinic in Washington. “The patients I take care of are incredibly
fearful of the atmosphere they see.”
Another factor, Sequeira noted, is the record levels of fatal violence suffered by transgender victims in recent years, especially Black trans women.
“We have to acknowledge that societal racism and transphobia directly correlate with some of the findings we see,” she said.
It's a message that a bigot like Anthony Monteiro just can't grasp. The hate these bigots spew has consequences:

Minneapolis, suffering serious injuries including a rib fracture,
collapsed lung and brain bleed.
Transit police officers responded Monday morning to a call that a woman

bias,” according to the criminal complaints. However, Nicholas Kimball, a
spokesperson for the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, told The
Associated Press the case is still being investigated and the office
needs more evidence to determine a motive.
At least 32 transgender and gender-nonconforming people were killed in the United States last year,
according to the Human Rights Campaign. Trans women are
disproportionately represented, comprising 81% of the deaths. In 2021,
the human rights organization tallied 57 fatal assaults against trans
and gender-nonconforming people, the highest number since HRC has been
reporting the numbers.

Georgia Republican has previously heckled the president, including
during his State of the Union address in February when he spoke about
alleged plans from some Republicans to cut Social Security and Medicare. At that moment, Greene shouted out "liar, liar" in response to his comments.
In another instance, Greene claimed that Biden is responsible for fentanyl overdose deaths. On Tuesday, she shared a clip to Twitter of House testimony from Rebecca Kiessling, a mother who lost two sons to fentanyl overdoses in July 2020—when former President Donald Trump was in office.
congresswoman asked the mother during the hearing whether her sons
would be alive "if our government would secure our southern border,"

Kiessling responded "absolutely."
