Deborah and Lee Dorbert were excited to be giving birth to their second child until they received terrible news. An ultrasound at 24 weeks revealed that if they continued the pregnancy that they would birth a child with no kidneys. Doctors informed the couple that the baby would be stillborn or quickly die and that Deborah was at increased risk from potentially deadly complications. In the past the Dorbert's would have had the option of terminating the pregnancy but a new Florida law that went into effect just a few months before the couple received the horrible news robbed them of that choice. Even though it is legal to leave the state for an abortion the couple still feared legal retaliation. Deborah was forced to give birth and an hour and half later she held her infant child in her arms while it died a horrible death.
If he is truly committed to the highest standards then he should start publishing a list of all of his wife's clients and how much commission she makes from each. Then he should recuse himself anytime one of them comes before the Court.

Legalize it. I want to see Barry Bonds hr mark fall. Aaron Judge 100 HR's in a season and on his final one he swings so hard that he tears every ligament in this body.
This took how many years?

RIGHT! He was indicted by the feds in 2015 and still hasn't went to trial.
The recommendation can be found here. capitol.texas.gov
Much of this about Paxton was already known before he won re-election last November. One might hope Texas voters might collectively take a look at themselves and ask themselves how they could elect a criminal who is completely unsuited for public service but history tells us they probably won't.
McMaster has refused to apologize and says Democrats can't take a light hearted joke.
McMaster, the Governor of the first state to secede, thinks that a tactic used by enslavers to locate and maul freedom seekers who had escaped from forced labor camps in the South is funny.
I get what you're saying here, but the odds of that slob living to 2029 and beyond have to be under 10%.

So, are old laws protecting "trans people" being revoked or are new rules being put into place that affect women and when women object they are told to shut up?

Yet you continuously buy into the false narrative that the GOP pushes to justify creating discriminatory laws against trans people.
I just assume all fox stories are false at this point. There are 787.5 million reasons to no longer give any credence to a word they report.
Make a child feel bad by teaching them history and you should face prison. - the GOP
Make a child feel bad by hanging out where children gather displaying a weapon that is more and more often being used to kill children and you are a good patriot. - Also the GOP.
The GOP has given up on trying to actually govern. They don't care the slightest about the American people.
I like to see all opinions, not just those I agree with. Don't you?

If I want to hear fantastical made up stories and lies I'll call my 7 year old nephew and ask him how his day is going. He is every bit as informative as fox opinion shows and he's never tried to overthrow the US Constitution though he did try to steal an extra cookie last time he visited.
Gen X has been worried that social security won't survive for decades. Al Gore made it one of the main issues of his campaign for a reason and we would be in a much better place if we would have elected him. People often say any given presidential election is the "most important of our lifetime" but that 2000 election really was a turning point for history.
What's the problem here? The 12 year old was just using the 2nd amendment right to high power semi-autos to protect themselves from authoritarian fast food workers just like the founders intended.
#3 - Yep. My video doesn't require paper work and months of delays to obtain and won't go missing like police video sometimes does.
This is a great use of ARPA funds. They were able to directly help thousands of area households for next to nothing. Another article I read on this said the actual cost to eliminate this $80M was only $800K because they were able to buy the debt for 1% of what was owed.
I also know that there isn't a state in the country that is a "stop and ID state.
I also know that this idiot with a badge killed a man and nearly got himself and 2 others killed because he was "trying to help" when his "help" was neither asked for nor wanted.

I'm generally highly skeptical of police. I wish they would have released the entire video. The footage does not make it clear if the rights of the couple were violated. While police can't just demand ID without legal justification, they can always ask for it voluntarily. Article says fake names and birthdates were provided. Would like to know if those were voluntarily given or if they initially refused to ID themselves and police then insisted and under duress they provided false information..
Also, I'm not 100% certain due to the glare but it appears that the vehicle does not have a license plate. If so then police had legal justification to demand ID from the driver.
The nominees for the Razzie for worst performance in a a dramatic role are...
She's nearly as bad of a performer as George Santos.
Can they actually find this whistleblower or is this another figment of GOP imagination?
