Beware the ides of National Women’s Motorcycle Month.
News Headline: “Tennessee governor signs proclamation honoring early KKK leader.”
News Headline: “Republicans silent as Trump renews racist attack on congresswomen.”
Increasingly hard to keep up with the Party of Lincoln 2.0.

Can’t be done.

Yes. But what is the complaint?
Or are you one of those people who think protection against terrorists is more important than a tank parade?
News Headline: “Acosta defends his role in Epstein sex plea deal, offers no apology to victims.”
The labor secretary now hopes to cut funds by 80 percent at the federal agency that fights sex trafficking.

When will all these child rape victims stop their whining?
