But congratulations to all the desperate nominees
As a Montanan, I’ll just say fuck those guys. That is all.
Blood orange is one of the Great Flavors. It just is. I'm so glad one of its vessels found you.
Related to Montana is Iowa state Senator Bill Dotzler, who repeatedly asked his GOP colleagues to yield time so he could ask questions, and was repeatedly denied, so he yelled at them, because it was the right thing to do to these absolute cowards who have decided defending their bills is something they won't do.
That guy you went on a date with should accept my personalized invitation to FUCK RIGHT OFF INTO A DARK DARK HOLE!
I’m here to hate milk in solidarity with you!
I am so here for that pep band protest against Matt Walsh. I may just learn an instrument and start going to more protests. Better yet, I will tell my stepdaughter who is a very good musician about it and maybe she will take her kids and play.
My brother and his wife have had 7 kids (so far) without being especially intentional about it. Three kids is amateur hour.
Virginia Sole-Smith IS awesome. I’m gonna go dive right into that profile.
It’s really too bad that the dingus can’t be converted into fuel. We would have a limitless source of energy.
I’m continuously amazed and disgusted that the Republicans Party at every level has become so extreme. Particularly given that the vast majority of Americans -- including a substantial number of Republicans -- don’t agree with their policies.
I just followed @Ollie_XVX even though Twitter is a mess. I feel like a better person after reading his hilarious tweets about Matt Walsh’s alt-reception at UIA. Iowa City is the best.
"looks like he got his hair plugs from Walmart"
brutal + accurate
obviously i am thrilled for our prairie lights convo but also i am SO UPSET to be missing you with marissa! i LOVED that book! god that's gonna be so great!
Spot on about Montana Republicans. Sadly, they have so much competition.
Localized fame, whether by geography or subject matter, is always weird. It's one of the reasons I went behind the console, and got off the mic in radio. When everywhere you go can change in an instant, once you open your mouth, and your interactions can shift from being personal to being professional, and you're no longer a person but a thing? Yeah. Fame, of almost any kind, ain't all it's cracked up to be.
Glad there's a place that knows & likes you for who you are. We all need places like that.
Thanks for shouting out the folks in Nebraska, fighting the good fight.
Solerno? Sounds like a great idea.
Enjoy the weekend everyone. Have to get back to work.
Also re the Buckeyes protesting Matt Walsh...the dropping of a thousand marbles to close down one exit and force the MW fans to exit past the protest was brilliant.
I'm verklempt my stacking laundry baskets made it into a post!
I took a day off yesterday (this is a big deal for me. I took a day for just me, as if it was permitted or worthwhile or something. Turns out this is great, will do it again) and for the first time in a long time witnessed bald dingusery in the wild. After overhearing the dingiis' loud lunch conversation, I'm cheering sooo hard for the woman divorcing one of them.
When I got to the point in the article where the journalist wrote “Brantley Gilbert is touring with Nickelback this summer.” When i tell you I SCREAMEDDDDDD(I hadn’t yet reached the part where you mentioned it.)
Thank you, as always, for your service.
Gender-Affirming Care for Adults is now Basically Banned in Missouri
Vice.com April 14, 2023 Anya Zoledziowski
The state Attorney General Andrew Bailey announced an emergency regulation that erects enormous barriers to care for trans people of all ages.
The emergency rule (effective April 27) makes it impossible for transgender people of all ages to access gender-affirming care unless they have exhibited a medically documented "long-lasting, persistent and intense" pattern of gender dysphoria for three years. They also have to prove they've received "a full psychological or psychiatric assessment" and "15 separate, hourly sessions" of therapy, at least 10 of which must be with the same therapist. ... People seeking such care will have to be screened for autism and other pre-existing issues, such as anxiety and depression, and pre-existing conditions must "have been treated and resolved" before a person can access gender-affirming care. Heath care providers also have to check that a minor who is trans has received a comprehensive screening annually and isn't suffering from "social media addiction." ... Care is also prohibited if healthcare workers don't check yearly whether a patient is "experiencing social contagion with respect to the patient's gender identity."
Now imagine your 19 year old son, away at school, studying for finals, calls and asks if he should start attempting to meet those therapy standards, and you have to explain that these are not possible to attain, and that he needs to seek another doctor now. Please imagine essentially explaining to your child that his/her home state has outlawed their existence. And please accept my nomination for a single, not plural dingus, who has immediately stripped an entire group of people, as many as 50,000 (1% of Mo's population), of their bodily autonomy, access to medical care, and personal agency, with a single regulation.
