Here's a thought. Every state should be required to make it as simple to get an abortion as it is to obtain a firearm. Abortions and gun ownership are both Constitutional rights, and both deserve the same level of legal protection.

This idea is circulating on the Internet.

Of course, if states were required to make it as hard to get guns as they make it to get abortions, that would be the end of the GOP in red states.

Aloha, Scott

First, Rick Perry saw the light and bailed out. Now it seems like Scott Walker might be looking for the EXIT sign. At one time, Walker was thought to be one of the few Republicans that might have a realistic shot at winning in 2016, so his collapse goes into the ledger book as a good thing.

Donald Trump is a celebrity based on his TV reality show exposure, and he's a born huckster.

Most of the current Republican Party base consists of older white people who are in a panic because they see their status as the commanding majority in American society gradually slipping away.

As a famous TV personality and a skilled huckster, Trump realized that he could create a media circus by telling those people exactly what they want to hear --- that he can return things to the way they used to be, and that it will be easy. He correctly understood that once he hooked them, his new supporters wouldn't demand specifics, and the media would eat it up as long he was flamboyant and controversial

Donald Trump is just doing what American capitalists do best --- identifying a market and selling it a product it really wants to buy.

Somewhere, I imagine Donnie is enjoying a good laugh over how goddamned easy this is turning out to be.

Another Martyr

She makes 80,000 bucks a year to do her job. Either do what you're being paid to do or resign, but quit whining about it.
