Brittney Griner on her way home. Such amazing news!!
There isn’t some Russian of comparable stature she could have been traded for? You have to go with international terrorist merchant of death? Especially because it’s possible his connections will be used in Ukraine war
I think it's fair game to question how someone with a marijuana offense is being equated to the Russian 'Merchant of Death' who is now free.It's sad that some people feel the need to shit on good news
Iowa caucus are really not the way to start the process-I dont think it necessarily always skewed liberal. Iowa as a whole is not a Democratic population base - except for college areas (Iowa City, Ames, Cedar Falls, parts of Des Moines) But caucuses are stupid overall. Unless you like rank voting or are really committed to the process to stay until a "winner" is decided.I think it will be a really good thing to change the primary calendar. I doubt its feasible but it would be ideal to have it be different every presidential election year so that different portions of the electorate are given a voice.
I think that the Iowa caucuses skewed things way liberal and if they succeed in getting South Carolina first its going to seriously change that. It definitely will improve things if there's a new calendar however it falls out by requiring candidates to address different constituencies than they have in the past when they spent so many months in Iowa before the primary season began.

"President Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act + marriage equality will officially be federally protected under law."
I'm reading a lot of speculation that this is all about avoiding a primary and strong-arming Democrats into supporting her or risk splitting the vote and handing a win to Republicans. Given how close it was in Arizona, Democrats can't afford to split the vote and I fear her strategy is going to work.Hope she has work lined up for when her term ends.
Yes because if they get the chance, the Republicans would repeal this at the first opportunity. They ain't gonna give up.
So many republicans supported it in house and senate im not sure about that!
When did Mike Lee introduce a bill? Because for this bill, he only introduced an amendment and as far as I know, the Senators would have supported his amendment, not the bill itself and that amendment would actually have prevented action against entities that discriminate against same-sex couples. (So, of course, Republicans voted for that. They won't let an opportunity pass to help their oh-so-Christian voters discriminate against LGBTQ).All senate republicans voted for Mike lees version of the bill.
