60s Hippie who never grew up!✌🏽 I’ve been a Liberal (& as woke as a grandma can be) my whole life, and will die a Liberal.🗽 I’m passionate about preserving democracy and the earth for future generations. 🌎🌲🌳😁 It’s time for Boomers to let go & let the kids take over. We’ve done some good but some of us have really effed up! I enjoy “playing at” golf (if you share the frustration of achieving a consistent golf swing, you get this). ⛳️🏌️‍♀️ For FUN I do ZUMBA! 💃 Image: Vote Like It’s 2020!

#Arizona Supreme Court rules that a near-total #abortion ban from 1864 is enforceable

“Tuesday’s ruling allows an 1864 law in Arizona to stand that criminalized abortion by making it a felony punishable by two to five years in prison for anyone who performs or helps a woman obtain one. “

I remember when ”flip-flopping” was a fatal flaw in a politician.

Remember before trump got elected a woman’s right to choose her own health care (including abortion) was a Constitutional right across the land.
trump was the one who appointed three sCOTUS judges specifically BECAUSE they’d make the court’s anti-abortion wing a majority, and take that right away from women, which they did at the earliest opportunity.

We have to make sure everyone realizes there is simply no position he can take now that will make up for that.

I can see why trump is trying to put this DA especially in his rear view! DA Willis seems to be the only sitting law enforcement official who will publicly point the finger at trump as the one who IS (and SHOULD BE) on trial for trying to end our democracy. The indictment by her office was a masterpiece, as was her removal hearing testimony. You GO, DA Willis!

WARNING ☠️— trump & Republicans adopt Ronald Reagan’s rhetoric about cutting fictitious government “waste” while promising to play Santa Claus with the extra funds — BEWARE it’s just a faux-populist spin on trickle-down economics.

The way to ensure Social Security’s solvency is to raise the payroll tax cap as President Biden is proposing.

🤦🏻‍♀️Prosecutors on Tuesday announced an agreement with #Texas Attorney General Ken #Paxton that would ultimately dismiss securities fraud charges he has been facing for nearly a decade.

Under the 18-mo pre-trial agreement, special prosecutors in the case would drop 3 felony counts against Paxton. As part of the deal, Paxton must pay full restitution to victims — roughly $300K — & must also complete 100 hours of community service and 15 hours of legal ethics educ.”

Yes, but I’m not trying to be ghoulish with this video—it’s just that the few seconds long video clip most are showing is the one of the ship collapsing the bridge.
The one I posted to you shows the loss of power on the ship & explains the corrective measures that were attempted, but sadly failed.

I’ve always viewed Canada & Canadians as calmer & more rational. Funny story though, the first trump cult member I met & talked to was a BC tour bus driver we had while visiting Butchart Gardens in fall 2016. It started raining so hubby & I retreated to the waiting bus, and he started regaling us with praise for trump. We were taken aback!

🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️A New York appeals court agreed to slash the amount of the bond Donald #Trump must post to cover a $454 million civil fraud verdict to just $175 million -Bloomberg #legal

granting him 10 days to pay a reduced bond

@GottaLaff

I’m wondering too if the Appellate Division may be swayed by the argument in paragraph 43 of trump’s appeal notice that several of the properties Judge Engoron issued disgorgement of profits on were “closed” ie loans made earlier than the statute of limitations in the case. Early on the NY Appeals Court ruled that Ivanka had to be dropped as a defendant due to Statute of Limitations concerns. $175 million would cover the remaining disgorgement plus padding for interest & expenses.

Update on #Canada house hunting trip for those who are asking:

We’ll be in BC tomorrow btw.

Turns out the photos of the house were misrepresenting that it had a garage. The doors were there, but behind them were 2 rooms where the garage was. The agent put out a note to all agents, but we didn’t find out til we were in Oregon.

The listing agent got a ton of complaints.

Sons/agent saw that the house had other flaws, so our hunt continues.

This is all for the best. 🇨🇦

Hi from Sacramento!

On our way to Medford, OR Margaritaville today. Tomorrow Washington, then Canada.

Posting will be light, replies will be even lighter.

We beeline it from stop to stop, so no thank you on your suggestions on where to go/stop. This isn’t a vacay, this is what we do on our “commute” to BC: Drive for 8-9 hours, sleep, drive for another 8-9, etc.

We’re on a mission. 😉

Time for ☕️

This is along the lines of trump NFT cards from a couple years ago & the gold kicks from last month.

trump’s brand apparently has monetary value in certain circles —maybe New York AG could try to get the rights to the brand proceeds.

Today: Dentist, gone in a.m.

Later: Family interested in our house is coming back for a 2nd look.🤞🏼

Tomorrow: Brokers' open house. (Brokers only, checking out the place)

2 wks: Roofer comes, contractor fixes area$$

Meantime, we very well may take an impromptu driving trip to BC on Sunday because there is a really good house our agent alerted us to and we need to see it up close.

(Don't tell Hammy, he loves these trips and he'll go NUTS.)

So yes, Trump lawyers have gone to the court to say, they have spoken to 30 lenders, and nobody is willing to put up a bond for the ole Trumpo to be able to appeal his fine of $453 million plus interest from the Judge Engoron ruling.

We are now on the verge of his bankruptcy yes...

bronakins,
@bronakins@sfba.social avatar

@tomiahonen

But a bond isn’t REQUIRED if trump puts up the cash, right? Just a few months ago, didn’t he say under oath that he holds more than $400 million in the bank? So that gets him close.

If a combination of his cash plus a partial bond is legal he could probably get a bond for the rest, since he already swung a bond for $91 mil in Carroll2. Some Chubb … er … chump will be willing to bond him.

Where!! Ima financial genyus!
