    This election nonsense by Trump may end up splitting up the Republican Party. I just don’t see how the one third (?) who are principled conservatives can stay in the same party with Trump sycophants who are willing to sign onto the TX Supreme Court case.

    We also saw the alt right types chanting “destroy the GOP” in Washington today because they didn’t keep Trump in power. I think the Q types will also hold the same ill will toward the traditional Republican Party. In fact its quite possible that all the voters who are really in a Trump personality cult will also blame the GOP for his loss. It’s only a matter of time IMO before Trump himself gets around to blaming the GOP.

    There is some discussion of this on Twitter. What do you all think?



     
    Not the "gotcha " you think.

    She was born in 1978 at a time when Ukraine was a part of the USSR and got a traditional Communist education. Ukraine became independent in 1991 and the first few years were full of chaos as the former Soviet Union broke up. She also still have family in both Ukraine and Russia...

    Knowing how Puting works I think that the last part is the reason for her "change in attitude"
    not to mention the ONLY reason she voted against it was because of votes in her next election, it's pretty simple.
    she was originally for it, her opponent in her district went after her because of it, and she flipped. she turned her back on ukraine for s few thousand votes..
     
    I think her support was tenuous - even at first. I don’t have references but I remember reading some ambiguous quotes about the war even at the very beginning.

    Thanks to people who responded earlier - we have been traveling and I haven’t been on as much.
     
    I don’t know where else to put this. I’m astounded at the idiocy. Submitting to collection of a rape kit is invasive and humiliating to the point that some victims refuse to go through it. When I worked evenings and overnights as a lab tech we had to assist in the collecting of specimens for the kits. It was heartbreaking to see the women and young girls have to go through it.

     

    Iowa is the latest Republican-led state to prohibit the use of public money for so-called guaranteed income. The final vote last month wasn't close, but the debate was heated. Senators who support such programs said it was undemocratic to undermine local governments. One suggested colleagues were being hypocritical, since their own families have received federal farm subsidies for generations.
     
    “It was not a pleasant job,” she writes, “but it had to be done. And after it was over, I realised another unpleasant job needed to be done.”

    (she could have...oh, i don't know, re-homed the dog instead of killing it)
     
    For Javier Torres and other workers whose jobs are conducted outdoors in south Florida, the heat is unavoidable. A new law recently signed by Ron DeSantis, Florida’s Republican governor, that prohibits any municipalities in the state from passing heat protections for workers ensures that it is likely to stay that way.

    Torres has seen a co-worker die from heatstroke and another rushed to the emergency room in his years of working in construction in south Florida. He has also fallen and injured himself due to heat exhaustion.

    “I work outdoors and have no choice but to work in the heat. I work often in painting and, in the majority of cases, we’re exposed to direct sun and we don’t have shade. Sometimes I feel dizzy and get headaches,” said Torres.


    He said employers rarely provide workers with water, leaving workers to ensure they bring enough water to work or find a hose to drink from.

    The effects of extreme heat on workers are only expected to worsen due to the climate crisis. Many parts of Florida experienced record heat last year. Orlando hit 100F (37.7C) in August breaking a record set in 1938. The National Weather Service recently issued its outlook for summer 2024, predicting Florida summer temperatures will be warmer than normal.

    “The heat can be very intense, especially as we get closer to summer,” added Torres. “What we want as workers who labor outdoors is to have water, shade and rest breaks to protect ourselves.”

    At the behest of agricultural industry lobbyists, DeSantis signed HB433 into law on 11 April, a bill scaling back child labor protections that also included an amendment prohibiting all local municipalities in Florida from enacting heat protections for workers.

    The exemption came in response to efforts by farm workers in Miami-Dade county to pass heat protections, including proper rest breaks, access to water and shade, as increasingly warming temperatures have expanded the days farm workers are exposed to heat.……

     
    I wonder who will take it over???????
