Yes, Roe v Wade will be overturned soon. Yes, they can put you in jail for a miscarriage in Arizona once that happens. Here’s how.

In 2017, a Tennessee woman was charged under that state’s abortion ban. 2017, not 1917. Started thinking about writing this article, in the way I have done it, when I had a conversation with our 22 year old legal assistant about Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court, and Arizona’s trigger law A.R.S. 13-3604, which becomes […]

So you think this election’s about you

With “Fight Song” playing in the background and memories from 2016 showing up on my FB feed, I’m reliving my time as a delegate for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention. Philadelphia. July. 2016. It was hot and sweaty, oppressive for this used-to-the-dry-heat Arizona native, but being there, in the City of Brotherly Love, […]

Stop with this “don’t talk about your opponents!” nonsense

The thing is, I keep starting blog posts, which have tended to take a day or more to complete in most cases (not writing, but finding time to edit and format) but the news cycle changes etch-a-sketch quickly so I often abandon them but, screw it, I’m finishing this one.

McSally announces Senate bid, fails to condemn Trump’s racism, still wants you to think she’s cool

As I’ve mentioned lo these many times about Arizona Republicans, there is a highly successful subset of them who, despite their obvious lack of interest in competent governance of any kind, are impressively adept at what is known to political junkies as “working the refs” or “manipulating mainstream pundits”. Martha McSally is one such Republican, […]

Arpaio not off to an auspicious start

Why, oh why, for my first post back in months does it have to be about the bad stench we thought we had (at least) extinguished in 2016? Here is the exclusive @abc15 / @OHPredictive poll – @RealSheriffJoe cuts @kelliwardaz base in half, leaving @RepMcSally in the lead to replace Senator @JeffFlake . pic.twitter.com/kmRCNs844a — […]

“Moderate” Martha McSally votes to yank health care from millions

Martha McSally stood up in GOP conference meeting and said let's get this "fucking thing" done. Yes, direct quote — per members and aides. — Erica Werner (@ericawerner) May 4, 2017 About ending protections from lifelong coverage caps on children born with illnesses, making being a rape or domestic violence victim a preexisting condition, etc. […]

Call your Rep and Senators Flake and McCain, now!

I’m old enough to remember the outraged protests from the right against the Affordable Care Act as it made its way through Congress to President Obama in 2009-10. It was being shoved down our throats, we were told. No one voting on the bill had really read it, supposedly. Tyranny! A number of House members […]
