    I’ve had them break and slip off. And yes they are expensive, give me a break. People who are poor have to decide between lights and food sometimes. Even tampons can be a big expense for a lot of people.

    This is an ADHD tangent from the other thread. Fertility options are plowing forward for the mega wealthy. We focus so much attention on rights to life that will never touch or impact the most affluent people on earth. If their money travels internationally them without restraint they can choose their posterity at almost anytime.

    Never mind, I think I’m being a dope.

    I’ve had them break and slip off. This happened more often when I was younger, inexperienced, and unprepared to handle a child. I didn’t have health insurance through a good chunk of my twenties and relied on Planned Parenthood and condoms for BC. In many states, Planned Parenthoods are under attack and geographically impossible to access for many young people- particularly those who don’t have access to transportation. Those people are, you guessed it, overwhelmingly on the poorer side- the kind of people who would have trouble affording condoms. I’m very privileged to have grown up in a blue state with ample access to these resources. Birth control IS a privilege, no matter how you slice it.

    Oh, my, God.

    This story about Jeff Bezos and David Pecker. I just saw that Bezos hired the guy who wrote The Gift of Fear to investigate AMI. Dying!!!

    Also, I think it’s HIGHLY likely Trump is behind this. He hates Jeff Bezos so much, and David Pecker / National Enquirer is his longtime friend. He would totally do something like this.

    Michael Cohen spilling the tea today. Nothing earth shattering in his statement. Love that he refers to Crazy Guilliani as “Trump’s TV Lawyer”

    Worth a read as a “What the fuck was I thinking? How did I not know I was in a cult?” speech.

    Oooh, it’s getting so hot already. I’m writing a story about pet food and listening to this drama on earbuds in the office.

    Well I thought that was highly entertaining. A few standout questioners. Where some of the elder congress people were attacking Cohen with a butcher knife -I was pretty impressed with Cortez and Pressley going in with a lot more surgical precision, especially AOC: Do you think he altered his financial statements for insurance? Who witnessed it? Where are the documents? Would we find evidence of fraud if we saw his state and federal taxes?

    Boom! She just handed New York reason to investigate for fraud for the golf course in the Bronx. And SDNY is more than happy to investigate. And State Crimes = no federal pardons.

    Which is why Cohen’s statement that he is regular contact with the SDNY office should run chills up and down the spines of Donnie and his children.

    But I’m really curious about his school transcripts now too! West Point – give em up!

    Yeah, AOC and Pressley made the most of their time. Tlaib and Mark Meadows, wtf. He is for sure a racist though, sorry bruh.

    Tlaib tried very inelegantly to do what Pressley did very elegantly (do you think it’s possible for a person who commits this astounding list of racist actions to successfully employ a person of color and still be a racist?).

    Tlaib ended the questioning leaving a bad taste for everyone. Cummings will coach her and she’ll learn how to phrase her statements better. But I feel like her tongue should be tattooed with a shoe.

    I always love how racists defend their racist behavior with a single token employee and then say that being called a racist is worse than committing racist acts. And by love I mean they should wake up in an alternate universe where all of their privilege is stripped away.

    Right, or they have Black or Jewish family members. And they “don’t see color.” Wake the fuck up and go to some bias training. My uncle (classic white guy with goatee and belly, late 50s) has a daughter of color and a best friend of color, and would say shit like “i don’t see color” when called out for being racist, and that best friend told him lovingly to go to anti-racist training. He’s gotten a lot better. You need to be open to examining your beliefs and that you may in fact be a racist. You can change.

    Anybody else feeling relieved the Mueller investigation is finally done? I think Stone, Flynn, Manifort, and the rest at least were exposed and I’m glad the U.S. may not have to get into impeachment. I honestly think with the Moscow hotel, Trump’s family would have tried to influence politics with Russia even more than they did if there hadn’t been an investigation. I’m still depressed about the push-back in abortion laws and LGBT rights will undoubtedly undergo with all the judicial appointments in the next few decades but that can’t undo Roe V Wade or Obergefell v. Hodges even if discrimination will likely be permitted. It’s sad to read about the suicides around Parkland and Sandy Hook.

    But it feels good that even with a republican congress there ultimately was oversight. Less news about Syria is probably the best we could hope to read. Can’t undo the diplomacy damage but money still means something.
