If Only Voters Were As Serious As Gamblers About Presidential Elections

If Only Voters Were As Serious As Gamblers About Presidential Elections | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
Yes, you can bet on presidential elections. And gamblers betting on the election have a pretty good history of predicting the next US president. Better than the bulk of polls and surveys, in fact. ...

The Supreme Court Makes Up Facts—and Uses Them to Make Law

The Supreme Court Makes Up Facts—and Uses Them to Make Law | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

But there’s a problem with these statements. Lawrence and Garnerweren’t really having sex when the police entered the apartment. They weren’t even in a relationship. Kennedy rested his holding on fabrications—but through the power of the court, those fabrications were woven into law.

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot Mic Such an infuriating issue should attract the ire of the feminist community, but so far there are mostly crickets.


Recent legislation regarding the forced sterilizations performed on incarcerated women in California prisons evokes a muted time in U.S. history when sexist, racist, classist and ableist eugenics policies were orchestrated by the state.

A Choice: Genuflecting Before The Five Pimps Of The Plutocracy – Or Pitchforks

A Choice: Genuflecting Before The Five Pimps Of The Plutocracy – Or Pitchforks | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

It must have been most pleasing for the five Supreme Court free market pimps for the American oligarchy to celebrate two events in Nevada. At the renown Chicken Ranch whorehouse, gentlemen came to satisfy their free market desires, while in Las Vegas Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire gambling house owner, was busy choosing the next political whores of the United States at another national “free market,” now called the Adelson Primary. At both sites candidates were preening, showing a leg—or more—and murmuring sweet somethings in the ears of the buyer, enticing him with their best “goods” on the runways of plutocracy.


The “conservatives” on the Supreme Court with their Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions made it possible for the 80-year-old Adelson to flash his $40 billion fortune before four invited governor-puppets for the Washington slave market. Would the winner of his millions of campaign cash be John Kasich of Ohio, destroyer of unions and creator of mile-long black voting lines? Would it be Scott Walker of Wisconsin, destroyer of collective bargaining and Wisconsin K-16 education? Would it be Chris Christie of New Jersey, the creator of closed bridge approaches to important places? Would it be Jeb Bush, the “should have been” and the white sheep in the Bush Dynasty?


Stay tuned for the ching-ching of Adelson’s cash registers. After all, he spent only $150 million on Newt Gingrich and other Republican sycophants in 2012.

Planned Parenthood’s president thinks abortion is headed back to the Supreme Court

Planned Parenthood’s president thinks abortion is headed back to the Supreme Court | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"It is chilling to think that for women in America, your rights now depend on your zipcode," says Cecile Richards of a wave of new abortion bans. (Is a woman’s right to choose heading back to the Supreme Court?)

Cecile Richards: I’d say that North Dakota is now the most unsafe state in the nation. Their governor has become the poster child for the most anti-woman [legislation] in the country. He has effectively banned access to safe and legal abortion. The bill is not only outrageous but unconstitutional. As a health-care provider, we know the impact it has on women to no longer have access to legal abortion. Lives are being put in jeopardy.

 

[I live in this state. It's so disgusting.]

Kansas bill calls for HIV positive people to be quarantined

Kansas bill calls for HIV positive people to be quarantined | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

A proposed bill in Kansas is calling for people with HIV or AIDS to be quarantined.

 

Lawmakers are close to passing a new law discriminating against those who have HIV or AIDS, forcing them to be isolated or have their movements restricted.

 

Kansas House Bill 2183, which has passed in the Kansas Senate, will update the state’s public health statute by allowing quarantine of Kansans with ‘infectious diseases.’

 

Senator Marci Francisco attempted to restore an amendment providing an exclusion for people living with HIV/AIDS, saying the disease is not spread through casual contact and the bill could permit discrimination.

It makes depressing reading that so many people with learning disabilities are still in registered care homes. Even though many care homes are excellent environments and can provide the best care solution, it shouldn't be the default choice.
