That's the point though, right? That white supremacy depends on subjugating women's bodies for men's reproductive aims.

That there was a lot of rape and incest in human history?

He was trying to defend not having rape/incest exemptions in abortion laws....

Makes sense.  White supremacy has strong connections with Christian fundamentalism, which states that women should be completely and totally submissive to men.

Steve King logic, boiled down:

[Insert any morally reprehensible thing here] is in the Bible, nobody can honestly claim their ancestry hasn't been impacted significantly by it in some way, therefore we should use those 'facts' to [Insert self-serving non sequitur].

Is there a full list of the accommodations requested?  Very curious about them, since my husband received certain accommodations when returning to work after his brain injury.   He did a lot of his meetings from home.

Shapiro is a cosmpolitian born with a silver spoon in his mouth.  He has no clue what life is like for actual working people.

So far this week we've gotten the following gems from Trump-minded people:

  • It's your fault if you have to work two jobs to make ends meet.
  • China is paying tariffs  - not the American consumer.
  • White nationalism is a hoax.
  • The Statue of Liberty poem only applies to Europeans.

I'm sure I'm missing some...

'Jimmy Kimmel Live' hit with $395,000 fine over emergency tones in skit

Quote

Simulated wireless alert tones used in a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” skit making fun of a presidential alert test have cost Walt Disney Co’s ABC $395,000 in civil fines with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

AMC Networks separately on Thursday agreed to pay a $104,000 fine for using an alert tone in a February 2019 episode of the “The Walking Dead.” The commission handed down smaller fines to Discovery’s Animal Planet and Meruelo Radio Holdings for other violations.

The use of emergency alert system or wireless emergency alert tones are barred by FCC rules “to avoid confusion when the tones are used, alert fatigue among listeners, and false activation of the system by the operative data elements contained in the alert tones,” the agency said.

The fines seem excessive.  Why is this kind of regulation good when the current administration believes essentially all regulation is bad?

 And now, for your comic relief and starring in the Theater of the Absurd, I present - Chris Christie :

 

Former Gov. Chris Christie forms institute to talk civility in politics

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is forming a think tank to discuss ways to bring civility back to politics.

The former Republican presidential candidate tells The Star-Ledger of Newark that politics "have gotten so ugly and divisive in the country that people are not having civilized conversations."

The Christie Institute of Public Policy will be based at the Seton Hall University Law School, where Christie got his law degree.

==========================

You fraud. Slink away, beach boy.

The "price" of doing business.  Go add up all the gazillions the banks have paid over the last 10 years to make things go away.  How's it feel?
