The Bad and Some Good ... Monday May 9, 2022

These really are the easiest posts to compile because there are dumb people everywhere and in the wake of that SCOTUS leak, it’s even scarier, especially given the shortage of Good News … so here goes:



A newly proposed bill would charge women with crimes in the cases of miscarriage or in fertility treatments like IVF. Attorney Gwyneth O’Neill explains the cruel bill: 

“This makes embryos people … Freezing an embryo would become a battery. Disposal of an embryo… would be a negligent homicide.”



We are learning that while Thing 45 was in office, he asked Mark Esper, his Secretary of Defense, about launching missiles into Mexico to “destroy the drug labs” and cartels while keeping US involvement secret.

Perhaps Thing 45 could have asked Junior where he gets his drugs and just dropped bombs on American drug labs.


Andrew Wilhoite, who is accused of murdering his wife in March and dumping her body in a creek, and in jail awaiting trial, has secured a spot as one of three Republican candidates in the race for a seat on the Clinton Township Board.

I cannot make this shiz up.


Janice McGeachin, Idaho’s GOP Lieutenant Governor, running against Governor Brad Little in the GOP primary, held a campaign rally featuring radical right-wing commentator Michelle Malkin, election conspiracy theorist Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers, and extremist broadcaster Stew Peters, all of whom addressed the white nationalist America First Political Action Conference in February, as did McGeachin.

Seriously Idaho?


Johnson County city HAS unanimously voted to ban a living arrangement aimed at helping tenants decrease the amount of rent they pay.

The new ordinance defines a co-living group as a group of at least four unrelated adults living together in a dwelling unit; the ordinance states that if one adult is unrelated to another adult, then the entire group will be classified as unrelated.

They’re coming for The Golden Girls, y’all.


While Governor Ron DeSantis vilified the Disney as “dishonest” and hypocritical and pushed to strip it of a special tax status and punish its leaders for challenging his policies, he and most Republicans in Florida will not be returning the hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign cash they received from the entertainment giant.

Hypocrites, they are.


GOP Senate candidate and Muslim Mehmet Oz’s campaign blasted a primary rival for “pathetic and xenophobic” attacks against him while in the exact same statement he bragged that Thing 45 endorsed him.

The same Thing 45 that pushed pathetic and xenophobic Muslim bans.


The state will soon strictly regulate the dispensing of abortion pills and impose harsh penalties on doctors who violate them, under legislation recently signed into law by GOP Governor Bill Lee.

Once enacted, a medical clinician will be required to be physically present when abortion pills are administered to a patient even though federal regulations now allow mail delivery nationwide.


If, as people think, the Supreme Court overturns women’s constitutional right to abortion, Blake Masters, an Arizona GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, thinks judges should also take aim at the right to buy and use contraception.

Just for women, I think; condoms should still be legal.


GOP State Representative Briscoe Cain says he’ll propose legislation barring local governments from doing business with any company that provides travel benefits for employees seeking abortions like …



Texas GOP State Representative Briscoe Cain is gunning for Tesla, which officially moved its corporate headquarters last year from Silicon Valley to Texas, after the company said it would cover “travel and lodging support for those who may need to seek healthcare services that are unavailable in their home state” such as abortions.

Tesla may become the Disney of Texas.


The Liberty Lake City Council voted 4-2 to not force the local public library to remove a popular, award-winning LGBTQ book, “Gender Queer” from its shelves after Erin Zasada tried for the second time to get the book banned.

Zasada filled out a form asking if she’d read the book and she checked. ‘No.’ and also said:

“I don’t believe in banning books, period. I don’t believe in that at all. This is not a First Amendment issue. This is not an attack on an LGBTQ group, this is a fight against sexually explicit content directly aimed at minors.”

Before she files another report to remove a book from the public library—a book that is shelved in the Adult Section—she ought to read up on book banning and see that it’s exactly what she’s trying to do.

As I said, not a lot of good this week but that means We The People have to make the Good News happen by speaking up and standing up and shouting out and voting to remove those people from office who are out to harm women in their quest to take this country backwards.,



  1. Luckily Oz is not getting off the ground to well. R's and D's are so completely confused just who he is and what side he is on. A major flip flopper.

    And Ill never understand the embryo thing. They can try as they may, they will never end abortion. So now what? A lady can't freeze her eggs now???? Next thing you know, the right will tell us not to jack off...we're wasting valuable sperm to make babies.

    1. I think jacking off for men is okay because the GOP and the rightwingnuts seem mostly content on controlling women's bodies.

  2. At some point logic and reason must prevail. Too bad that point may be centuries away.

  3. Bob. I think you should start an alternative blog... just as a sort of blind study? Take your same content, but flip it so that you think the 'bad' is 'good.' I would be curious to see how many followers you'd attract and would love to read the comments. We live in scary times... so I think it's best we learn all we can about the monsters. Kizzes.

    1. I think if I switched roles like that and people, started commenting about how much they agree about the bad-turned-good, I'd never be able to blog again.

  4. Is it me but isn't forcing books off library shelves the same as banning books (which this "lady" does not believe in)? Not to mention being contrary to the first amendment. And how does she know what is in the book if she hasn't read it? Sounds "mildly" hypocritical to me.

    1. She doesn't want to ban books but she doesn't want this book in the library.
      Yes, she's THAT stupid!

  5. *SIGH!* My head hurts!

    1. I have a bad cold today and this doesn't help matters!

  6. If you don't like a book - don't read it.
    It is that simple and easy.
    xoxo :-)

    1. Sadly, while the GOP is made of simpletons, they don't understand the simplicity of your idea.

  7. My wife is getting an IUD, which is birth control not abortion in any way shape or form

    Ridiculous to think she's a felon if she crosses the wrong state line

    1. It's insane. It's all about GOP men wanting to control everything.

  8. At least some good news. I watched the PA republican senate debate out of curiosity. I like to know what we're dealing with. None of them answered questions well, and all they did was waste their time and swipe at each other. I agree with Maddie, people here don't know what to think of Mehmet Oz. The D'S or the R's don't know what to make of him. His numbers- not good.

    1. MAGAts don't like Oz because he's Muslim.
      Dems don't like him because he's a tool.
      I think he's just a show pony.

  9. I'm only reading your good news today.
    The fuckery that is the GQP has got me fed up.
    And I read GenderQueer and there's no explicit sex. There's TALK of sexual orientation and gender issues, though. As if young readers should not know about that??

  10. You might want to reclassify the bad news of PA to good news. The Republicans are slicing and dicing each other to shreds on one will vote for them in November. It's so bad, WGAL-TV, an NBC affiliate, played all the Republican commercials back-to-back, good, bad, good, bad. This is how you lose an election.

  11. Next, masturbation will be outlawed. Oh, wait, men...

  12. I applaud your justifiable anger. It underpins many of your political posts. Not enough people get angry about wrongfulness these days. Easier to find something to watch on Netflix then draw the curtains.

  13. Seems like Erin Zasada might want to take the opportunity to read the book first. If she can read, that is.

    That Tennessee law about abortion medication is probably going to be replicated in every red state.


Say anything, but keep it civil .......
