For those in the now Trumpinista party who think that if they and their media lackeys simply ignore the upcoming SCOTUS decision that the effects on their election chances will not be effected. Millions of women around the country stood up and said “Hell, No, We won’t forget!”
Methinks the radical right stuck their hand in a hornets nest full of really mad hornets. Well, as James Carville always says “When your opponent is drowning, throw them an anchor!”

The media haboob coverage that I have seen failed to point out that a sandstorm (or, more accurately, a soil storm) in Iowa is not a natural phenomenon. It’s scary evidence of the consequences of our bad farming.
The Iowa public seems amazingly indifferent to what is happening to our soil and water, given what is at stake. To paraphrase something I read long ago, if you forget the environment whenever you go into the voting booth, it won’t do much good to remember it again after you come out.
