    he calls a "brilliant technologist and a committed activist," but it's likely that he's also using the opportunity to attack an old enemy.
    What a hypocrite.

    They're back to inventing new ways to wage war on women (even their women are):

    A measure proposed by a Republican lawmaker in New Mexico would make it illegal for a woman to abort a fetus sired by a rapist on the grounds that the woman is “tampering with evidence” in the suspect’s trial. According to Huffington Post, state Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R) has put forth House Bill 206, which would compel women to carry pregnancies caused by rape to term or else be charged with a third-degree felony.
    (...)



    “New Mexico needs to strengthen its laws to deter sex offenders,” said Brown in a statement. “By adding this law in New Mexico, we can help to protect women across our state.”

    We struggled against apartheid in South Africa, supported by people the world over, because black people were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about; our very skins. It is the same with sexual orientation. It is a given.

    so, after she gives birth the baby goes into an evidence lockup and the PD can raise it?
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    if you can't win....

    The Party of John Calhoun
    In Virginia, the legislature is moving to apportion its electoral votes by congressional district, instead of by direct popular vote:

    Sen. Charles W. "Bill" Carrico, R-Grayson, said the change is necessary because Virginia's populous, urbanized areas such as the Washington, D.C., suburbs and Hampton Roads can outvote rural regions such as his, rendering their will irrelevant.

    Last fall, President Barack Obama carried Virginia for the second election in a row, making him the first Democrat since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win Virginia in back-to-back presidential elections.

    For his victories, he received all 13 of the state's electoral votes. Under Carrico's revision, Obama would have received only four Virginia electoral votes last year while Republican
    Mitt Romney would have received nine. Romney carried conservative rural areas while Obama dominated Virginia's cities and fast-growing suburbs.


    One reason the rural areas were "outvoted" is because there were fewer votes in rural areas, and more in urban ones. If the GOP can't convince enough people to win, it will rig the rules so that certain people matter less than others.

    Jamelle Bouie calls this exactly what it is:

    In addition to disenfranchising voters in dense areas, this would end the principle of "one person, one vote." If Ohio operated under this scheme, for example, Obama would have received just 22 percent of the electoral votes, despite winning 52 percent of the popular vote in the state...

    It's also worth noting, again, that this constitutes a massive disenfranchisement of African American and other nonwhite voters, who tend to cluster near urban areas. When you couple this with the move on Monday to redraw the state's electoral maps -- eliminating one state senate district and packing black voters into another, diluting their strength -- it's as if Virginia Republicans are responding to Obama's repeat victory in the state by building an electoral facsimile of Jim Crow.


    I'd like to double down on that point. Efforts to disenfranchise black people, have always been most successful when they worked indirectly. After the initial post-war Black Codes were repealed, white supremacists turned to less obvious modes of discrimination -- poll taxes, grandfather clauses, and literacy tests.

    These were cloaked under a colorblind argument -- "We don't discriminate against black people, we discriminate against people who can't read the Constitution." By "read the Constitution," they meant "recite the Bill of Rights by heart." And they'd ask you to do this after reducing your school funding to a pittance. I say this to point that this is not a "new" racism. This is how it scheme went before the civil-rights movement, and this is how the scheme works today.

    To see the only other major political party in the country effectively giving up on convincing voters, and instead embarking on a strategy of disenfranchisement is bad sign for American democracy. There is nothing gleeful in this.

    Also, fire departments shouldn't put out fires, as they're destroying evidence of arson.

    We also need to get onto those medical personnel who have the audacity to save the lives of people who have been shot or stabbed, thus throwing out the window any number of perfectly good murder cases.
