BECOMING GILEAD – Abortion bans in America by state

BECOMING GILEAD – Abortion bans in America by state

As has becoming glaringly obvious, the forced birth lobby in America has been operating in a well-coordinated fashion to end the legal right of women to seek an abortion.

Betsy DeVos rewrites the definition of “public schools” to suit her own Christian Dominionist ideology

In a presidential administration that seems to function as a turnstile with people coming and going from their positions on a nearly continuous basis, one person seems to be a constant: Betsy DeVos. It’s no surprise, of course. She and her husband and other families members give enormous amounts of money to Republicans. The Center for Responsive Politics found the […]

It’s not just Michigan: Betsy DeVos and the Koch brothers have immiserated teachers across the entire USA

It’s not just Michigan: Betsy DeVos and the Koch brothers have immiserated teachers across the entire USA

A couple of weeks ago, I published an essay titled Betsy DeVos and the Koch brothers must be so proud: Michigan teacher salaries down 16% from 2009.

Federal court rules Michigan’s Congressional, State House, and State Senate districts unconstitutional – Here’s why that’s a BFD

In what can only be described as some of the best news I have heard this year, particularly regarding Michigan, a three-judge federal panel declared many of Michigan’s Congressional, State House, and State Senate districts to be unconstitutional.
