Daily Thoughts: Garbage People

Shortly after the fall of Roe v. Wade, a story made the rounds on the Internet about a 10 year old girl in Ohio who’d been raped, gotten pregnant, and had had to go to Indiana for the abortion because she was three days past Ohio’s six week limit when her pregnancy was discovered.

Republican talking heads, being the horrific monsters they are, immediately decried the story as fake. (Two examples, here and here.)

Well, the bastard rapist was arrested and charged yesterday.

Fucking garbage GOP.


Screencap, tweet, Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR): "The market is down ~13% in the past year, and inflation is up 9.1%. The only way to fix this catastrophe is to vote Republican." at 6:19 AM on Jul 13, 2022
Republicans are fantastic at the economy. That’s why every time we elect one the economy shits itself and the next Democratic president has to spend 75% of their term fixing it. 🙄

Screencap, tweet, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (@MarshaBlackburn): "Why can’t the left say the word “woman”?" at 9:14 AM on Jul 13, 2022
I am so sick of this disingenuous bullshit from these asshole GOPs. Racist, homophobic, transphobic, power-hungry, trapped in the past, money-hungry useless garbage people, every last single one.
