That is where the Republican Party, their red state legislatures and this version of the Supreme Court are gonna take us.  And we thought oligarchy was bad.  This is taking rack 'n ruin to a new level.  Two traps that the founders warned us about...coming to fruition in today's America...our wealth ending up in a few powerful families, and religion melded with government.


Roe v. Wade looks doomed...Minnesota can't pass a ban on "conversion therapy"...Oklahoma's legislature just passed a bill necessitating 3 types of bathrooms in their public schools...the list goes on, yeah the list goes on.  God only made men who seek out women and women who seek out men, don't-cha-know.  Everyone else who has previously been "groomed" to think or act otherwise must be legislatively snapped out of it if they won't bend their will to the Christian Imperative.  How far will this madness spread...with the pairs of gay ducks in public park ponds being confined in separate cages?


Clarence Thomas just opened fire on John Roberts in the leadup to next month's showdown on Roe v. Wade.  Thomas, who has been under fire himself for not recusing himself over his wife's insurrectionist efforts leading up to the January 6 coup attempt, seems determined to shame Roberts into lining up with the rest of the conjority and dropping any attempts by the Chief Justice to forge compromises that would keep parts of Roe v. Wade intact.


The electorate is watching the crazy and dangerous behaviors Republicans are continuing to exhibit...and even intensify.  And yet there is talk about turning Congress and the White House over to them in the next elections.  It's crazy time, folks...

Christian-in-name-only:


The Donald Trump-endorsed Republican candidate published the highly unusual thesis in 2001, when he was a major at the Air Force’s Air Command and Staff College, from the point of view of a colonel living in 2018 who has taken refuge in an "isolated cavern" following the collapse of the U.S. military and the deaths of millions of Americans under a left-wing leader by the United Nations and the European Union, reported the Washington Post.


“Domestically, life was bleak with a rampant drug culture, hedonism and a plethora of ‘alternate’ religions dominating the American youth,” wrote Mastriano, in the voice of his fictional colonel. “We were a people without vision or direction.”


Mastriano concluded the military must take action to "prevent the destruction of the republic," which he linked to “aberrant sexual conduct,” and the thesis foreshadows the right-wing conspiratorial worldview that fed his claims about Donald Trump's election defeat and the Jan. 6 insurrection.


“This thesis proves that Mastriano’s embrace of activity that undermines the U.S. Constitution is no recent corruption,” said Peter Feaver, a former senior White House official under George W. Bush. “It stems from poisonous views and misunderstandings that he has held for a very long time.”

Crazy time on the crazy train indeed. These insane R candidates, like Mastriano are winning in some areas and thankfully losing in others like Cawthorn.


The quack Oz thinks legalizing marijuana is bad for PA. Then I read this quote. "Don't worry, I'm not here to tell you to step away from the wine bottle. My wife, Lisa, and I regularly have a glass with dinner, and after particularly busy days, I enjoy unwinding on our porch with some good tequila."


And the lizard is slightly ahead, by 0.1%, of McCormick in the recount for Senator. trumpet wants Oz to claim victory even though the recount is still ongoing. You know, because of voter fraud from Mccormick's camp! Lucky for PA Fetterman is going to beat either candidate.


Then we have Gaetz who opposes making baby formula more accessible to people because they are poor, or, as he suggests, not “hard-working.” "H.R. 7791 would make baby formula shortages worse for most Americans,” the Florida Republican Congressman tweeted. “It will allow WIC to utilize a far greater portion of the baby formula market, crowding out many hard-working American families.”


So Gaetz does not want the poor families to have the same access to baby formula that the middle class has. This from an anti-choice azzhole who thinks the fetus is more precious than the sentient. I guess he meant rich, white R fetuses.


But Oz and Getz are far from alone in the goofball department. TX Gov Abbott complained about Biden's policy to send baby formula to the border. In effect ignoring the needs of American babies for the benefit of foreign kids. Another anti-choice azzhole who really does not care about kids once the cord is cut.


And check out what this R expert wittness said to the House Judiciary Committee on abortions. “Bodies [are] thrown in medical waste bins, and in places like Washington, D.C., burned to power the lights of the cities’ homes and streets,” Americans United for Life President Catherine Glenn Foster proclaimed. “Let that image sink in with you for a moment,” she continued. “The next time you turn on the light, think of the incinerators, think of what we’re doing to ourselves so callously and so numbly.”


Yo Serling, cue the music.

Now that the Republicans have succeeded in packing the Supreme Court with "originalists", what we have in the majority are in no small way religious fundamentalists. When the theocracy-pushing politicians, whether they are true believers or just pandering to the religious right, finally gain control of the institutions they have been working to secure for decades, these forces are not going to sit back and twiddle their thumbs.  Look how quickly the con-boosted SCOTUS has moved on Roe v. Wade.  Which of the basic rights We, the People have secured since the founding of this country will be in their crosshairs next?  Ironically, these "originalists" are striving to codify the words "under God" that Eisenhower added to the Pledge of Allegiance" less than 70 years ago.

The SCOTUS cons just moved us another step closer to total theocracy by OK'ing tax money payments to religious schools.

And today the SCOTUS moved the country another step closer to theocracy with the repeal of Roe v. Wade.
