Look, When You Elect a Billion-Dollar Loser, Things’re Gonna Get a Little Wacky
Hey campers, happy two-year anniversary to the Comey firing! That was nuts, wasn’t it? I didn’t think it was even possible for shit to get any crazier than that. But look at where we are today; the plague is back. THE PLAGUE. The plague is back because people are eating uncooked marmot. Shit can always get crazier, is what I’m saying.

Illegitimate Georgia Governor Brian Kemp gleefully signed a new Republican abortion ban into law. The bill is…draconian, and while “draconian” is an awesome word that I’m usually delighted to use, HOLY FUCK this is horrifying shit. Obviously, it criminalizes abortion before many women even know they’re pregnant, but for extra patriarchy pointz, women can also be sentenced to decades in prison just for miscarrying! You can even go to jail if you get a legal abortion in another state! It’s now illegal in Georgia to write or speak any sentence that uses all the letters in the word “abortion.” You can be flogged just for reading this paragraph.
As bad as the Georgia bill is, the theocrats next door in Alabama (those righteous “Christians” who keep on voting for serial child molester Roy Moore) are so eager to pass their own Women Are Almost People But Not Really Act that they’re trampling over their own rules to get it done. Everybody wants to be the lucky legislature that passes the bill that finally gives Brett Kavanaugh the chance to cast the deciding vote striking down Roe v. Wade, while Susan Collins feigns shock and expresses mild disappointment.
Fascism rising, with the help of Christian fundamentalist evangelicals. who are going to force Christian Sharia law down everyone’s throats, whether they like it or not. This is just a teeny tiny step on the way there.
