Big yikes! Liz Cheney won’t get on board with Trump’s Big Lie so Republicans voted her out of leadership.

Accountability is good, but it’s not a substitute for policy changes. Could it be that training armed agents of the state to view certain communities as war zones and giving them military-grade equipment isn’t actually keeping us safe? For 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant and the hundreds of other Americans murdered by police in 2021 we’ll keep fighting …
 
On April 19, 1995 Army veteran Timothy McVeigh detonated two tons of explosives planted in a truck outside the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

This week we’re sharing an important conversation about vaccine hesitancy from the podcast Shelter in Place. COVID-19 cases are dropping as more people get vaccinated — so why isn't everyone pro-vaccine?

I have a wacky idea - what if stopped electing religious extremists who are deeply threatened by girls who f*ck? If Roe v. Wade falls (and it might!) it won’t end abortion, but it will turn some states into abortion havens and others into abortion wastelands. You can really choose your own dystopian adventure of conservative male power and control!…
 
My body, my choice, right? This week we’re demystifying sex work with comedian and stripper Irene Fagan Merrow.

The modern Republican party is basically your friend’s boyfriend you were always suspicious of, and who got caught cheating on her.

It’s Black History Month, so let’s look at America’s painfully predictable pattern of progress followed by white backlash. Fellow white people, repeat after me: racial justice is our problem, too.
