Gillead, Amerikkkan style, concocted by MAGAt Fascists and the Talibangelists.

The danger is absolute for over half the population.

I’m 76; I’ve been watching this happen for a very long while.

Fact: Birth control was made legal, but only for married couples in SCOTUS decision ‘Griswold vs CT’ in 1965. The year I graduated high school.

One of King’s best. I like the narrative arc and the POV. I wish your youngest luck in this life’s milestone. No ‘Christines’ except between book covers.

This isn't fiction; it's a journey into the heart of contemporary politics, and your journey into understanding starts here. 👉 https://thinkbigpicture.substack.com/p/trump-threats-violence-maga-2024

I know this is going on; I saw his foulness at the debate with HRC in 2016. I really couldn’t finish the article. I’ve read too many books on the rise of Nazism not to know where we stand. It’s Weimar 2.0.

Ohio voters: The extremist GOP Secretary of State is canceling votes, purging thousands of names recently from the voter rolls, right before this important referendum on abortion rights. Make sure you were not among them! Check here for your status: https://voterlookup.ohiosos.gov/voterlookup.aspx

Women of Ohio, This is the most important vote of your life. It will determine whether you will be a free person in your own right or whether you will be livestock who can be sentenced to be a living flesh coffin for an unviable fetus that could well kill you too if not aborted. Look at some of the stories out of TX, AL, FL.

Make sure you are still registered to vote. Make your stand!

Today in Labor History September 30, 1892: In the wake of the Homestead Steel Strike, union leaders were prosecuted for the crime of treason for the first time in U.S. history. Henry C. Frick, chairman of the Carnegie Steel Company, convinced the chief justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to issue warrants for the arrests of every member of the advisory board of the striking steel union for treason against the state. The 29 strike leaders were ultimately charged with plotting "to incite insurrection, rebellion & war against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania." During the strike, Pinkerton detectives killed seven workers, who were protesting wage cuts of 18-26%. Alexander Berkman tried to assassinate Frick, but failed, and spent many years in prison. He wrote about his imprisonment, and about anarchism, in his “Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist,” published by Emma Goldman’s Mother Earth Press.

    Hi😊 I just moved here from another server, so I thought I’d introduce myself: My name is Lisa.
    My 1st love is books, a close 2nd is drawing/painting. I walk a lot & place a high value on daily exercise. I work in the field of ophthalmology, but have a background in teaching & aviation. I am married, w/ 2 teenaged boys. Originally I’m from SoCal, but have lived in TN for many yrs & love it. I am definitely a country mouse (vs. city mouse).The older I get, the more I enjoy cold weather, which has led to an obsession w/ sweaters & sweatshirt. There is also a corkscrew in my purse for red wine emergencies. @bookstodon

    “Tell them about the dream, Martin,” gospel singer Mahalia Jackson urged Dr. King, “tell them about the dream.” And in 1963 he did - setting aside the prepared remarks for the March on Washington, and starting to ad lib a speech that still rings from the “prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire” to “the curvaceous slopes of California” to “every hill and mole hill of Mississippi.” https://theconversation.com/gospel-singer-mahalia-jackson-made-a-suggestion-during-the-1963-march-on-washington-and-it-changed-a-good-speech-to-a-majestic-sermon-on-an-american-dream-212067 @blackmastodon @histodons
