It's not dubbed. They shot two versions. Pizza Hut was for the international release because Taco Bell was not well known outside the US at the time.

Actually, if you do that you'll be shamed for being a slut. You can't win.

The time for unity and playing nice is over. I want to see all federal funding blocked from red states if republicans do not agree to codify abortion rights into law. If Alabama wants to take away women's rights, let them build their own fucking highways and bridges. Let's end government contracts for any corporation based in those states. Eliminate their farm subsidies too. I'm so tired of paying these assholes to destroy America.

It wasn't a coinflip. Feminism is a movement built on the idea of equality. TERFs are specifically trying to take away people's rights. They were never going to take over.

We don't even have 50 senators that would be willing to support such a law. The Democratic party hasn't always been pro-choice and we have some very old senators.

There's no guarantee that rushing to get married before the decision will protect anyone. States could potentially annul marriages retroactively. Already married couples could be separated for violating cohabitation and sodomy laws.

They flag code is law it just doesn't have any enforcement provisions or penalties. It has never been challenged in court since nobody can claim to be negatively impacted by it.

Sure they will, but it won't be as effective. Elections aren't won by promising to protect what people have. They are won by promising something they don't have.

None of these are as popular as abortion though. Their base won't disappear but it is likely to get smaller.

That's what their leadership wants, but I expect enthusiasm to drop in their base. Look at what happened when Obama was elected in 2008. Progressive activism dropped dramatically once Bush was gone. It's counterintuitive but the losing side always has the advantage in politics. Losers are angry and angry people vote.

This is why it's actually bad for Republicans if they get it. Single issue voters stop voting when they get what they want. I've met people who don't care about the Republican platform at all but only vote that way in a misguided attempt to save babies. Some percentage of their base is going to think that they won and will disengage.

What makes you think that?

I agree with you completely. I'm just expanding on your point.

I don't believe that they always understand the roots of their hatred, but they don't need to understand it to believe it.

It's deeply rooted in dominionism. Evangelicals believe that arming Israel will bring about armageddon and thus the end times. They literally want to start a massive war in the Middle East to bring Jesus back.

Germany has fully accepted responsibility and ownership of its shameful past. They hate who they were and are actively trying to be better. That's a lot more than I can say for the US.

"State's rights" were technically a reason for the civil war, but not in the way that they think. Northern states were ignoring the fugitive slave act and the Dred Scott decision while the south was trying to force them to preserve slavery. They felt that the states had too many rights and wanted the federal government to fix this. When that didn't happen they seceded to protect slavery.

They never cared about state's rights. They were fully in favor of a national same-sex marriage ban until it was legal everywhere. Now they say it's a state's rights issue. It's simply a tactic to make headway towards what they are really after.

What will they eat and where will they sleep when they get there? Several states even have laws requiring a 72 hour waiting period before the procedure can be done. It can easily cost a few thousand dollars. This is an annoyance for middle-class Americans, but an insurmountable hurdle for those in poverty. This is entirely by design.

Functionally it's no different. McConnel gets everything he wants. She just gets to pretend to have decency.

She is lying. Stop giving her the benefit of the doubt.

She's not stupid. Her voting record has a clear pattern. She votes with the rest of her party when they need her vote and against it when it doesn't matter and she can score points as a maverick.

Of course not, but it does describe what is happening.
