And the hits just keep on coming.

June 26, 2022

Eight players were ejected in the second inning after Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels had a full-team on-field brawl with multiple punches thrown.

Mariners fans were shocked. They didn’t know their team was capable of getting that many hits.

Weird watching Kenley Jansen blow a save for the Braves today.

Of course as an SF Giants fans I wanted Atlanta to beat the Dodgers.

On the other hand, have gotten awfully used to rooting against Jansen

ESPN headline “Colorado Avalanche win first Stanley Cup since 2001.”

And Toronto Maple Leafs fans are just cursing or weeping.

Media likes idea of midterms being train wreck for Democrats. Confirmation bias is real. And if Democrats keep House & as Amy Klobuchar has been saying, pick up 2 more Senate Seats, 2nd half of Biden’s term could be full of competent accomplishments. To media minds, boring.

Some anti-choice advocates claim abortion pills aren’t safe. FDA in 2018 said US mortality rate associated w/ abortion pills 0.65 deaths per 100,000. US Maternal mortality rate in childbirth – 17.4 per 100,000 pregnancies (& 3X higher for black women.) Again – pro life my a**.

In the wake of Roe being overturned, Red states are claiming they will expand their welfare programs for women & children. They’re as likely to do that as Velveeta Voldemort is to release his tax returns.

A new CBS poll founded 57% of American voters believe SCOTUS also will limit access to birth control and same-sex marriage. Uh, maybe because Clarence Thomas said that in writing?! “When someone tells you who they are, believe them.”

Some discussion as to if GOP retakes House & Senate if they would try a nationwide abortion ban. Of course, such a radical step would never get past filibuster or a Biden veto. Which begs question, which would GOP get rid of first, filibuster or veto power? They have no shame.

Meanwhile, while Gov Ron DeSantis continues pretending he’s an authoritarian king, ICYMI, Florida led the country in both (reported) COVID hospitalizations and deaths last week.

Anti-choice California GOP Sec of State candidate Rob Bernosky suggests people who support abortion should live in states like California that allow it, while those who don’t should live in states that restrict it. Because it’s just that easy to move. Yes, they are that awful.

New York state of nine?

The Yankees were no-hit today by the Astros. No punchline, I just liked writing that.

NFL will begin their disciplinary hearing for Deshaun Watson as to possible suspensions for the new Browns QB, accused of “harassing, assaulting or touching 26 women during massage appointments.”

So if Watson gets off (so to speak) with a light sentence, can we now call it a “30 strikes and you’re out policy?”

So if we’re really going back to what Founding Fathers intended, can we let majorities in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia decide gun and abortion etc rights for the entire country?

Marco Rubio claims on Fox that Dems exaggerate SCOTUS ruling: “There were still abortions today. Tragically, there’ll be abortions tomorrow because abortion is not banned.”

New Florida law Jul 1 bans abortion after 15 wks & GOP working on tighter rules.

SF Archbishop Cordileone, who’s infamously contradicted the Pope by saying Nancy Pelosi should be denied communion, called SCOTUS overturning Roe v. Wade “historic” & “the beginning not the end.” He’s not kidding. And this Supremely Evil Court might agree with him. #GetMadAndVote

Interesting. Even Fox News basically ignored Velveeta Voldemort’s Illinois rally. So he’s not just a loser, now he’s committed the ultimate sin in media minds – the Former Guy is just BORING.

Most of media handlines today about SCOTUS overturning Roe V. Wade. This headline from Fox News website – “Massive alligator kills man in ritzy yacht community — and attacks are worsening.”

After SCOTUS overturned Roe V. Wade, Ted Cruz yesterday called for AG Merrick Garland to “be on watch to stop any radicals threatening mob violence.” “Mob violence?”! As opposed to the “tourists” who showed up on January 6 with bear spray and zip ties?

New oxymoron “Supreme Court.”
