Rise up, women of America, and make the Republicans sorry they ever tried to take away your right to choose!

The Republicans didn't take away any rights. The Supreme Court invalidated a bad decision that has been hanging by a thread for 50 years.

Hope everybody caught the first two episodes of "The Handmaid's Tale" on Hulu yesterday.  Gilead reminds me a lot of the GOP's theocratic roadmap for America.

Clarence Thomas failed to report wife's income for 5 years ($700,000)


Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas failed to report his wife’s income from a conservative think tank on financial disclosure forms for at least five years, the watchdog group Common Cause said Friday.

Between 2003 and 2007, Virginia Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, earned $686,589 from the Heritage Foundation, according to a Common Cause review of the foundation’s IRS records. Thomas failed to note the income in his Supreme Court financial disclosure forms for those years, instead checking a box labeled “none” where “spousal noninvestment income” would be disclosed.

Federal judges are bound by law to disclose the source of spousal income, according to Stephen Gillers, a professor at NYU School of Law. Thomas’ omission — which could be interpreted as a violation of that law — could lead to some form of penalty, Gillers said.

“It wasn’t a miscalculation; he simply omitted his wife’s source of income for six years, which is a rather dramatic omission,” Gillers said. “It could not have been an oversight.”

The Supreme Court is “the only judicial body in the country that is not governed by a set of judicial ethical rules,” Gillers said.

Clearly, the Heritage Foundation is not paying her that money because of her (lack of) skillsets but because of who she is marrying to.

Clarence Thomas needs to be called before the January 6th committee as well.

Well, since Justice Thomas was not at the Capitol on January 6 and there is no record of him having any communication with anyone who was in the Capitol, you're going to be **** out of luck with your witch hunt.
