#ResistTrump open thread

Repub “health care” bill pulled. RESISTANCE WORKS! Happy Friday!

The Republican party in action

It’s a good day. And it’s all thanks to those who protested in the streets, who showed up at Town Hall meetings, who called or wrote their elected representatives, who did anything else they could think of to fight repeal. If you were part of the Resistance, and I know a lot of you were, give yourself a big hand. You did it. We did it.

Without the ACA, there’s no way I could get insurance. There’s no way millions of Americans could get insurance. What a fucking relief this is. What a weight off all of our shoulders.

The fact that this is a massive defeat for Trump and Ryan and the Republicans generally is just icing on the cake.

Consider this an open thread. No Trump fans.

Ahhh, the right… ever the supporter of women… so long as they toe the line. The Blaze vlogger Tomi Lahren has reportedly been fired from Beck’s Blazing Bullshit Bucket for daring to have opinions while speaking.

The “cute-as-a-button-and-hey-she’s-on-our-side” casualty opined that “limited government” included staying out of her gun case… okay, no worries there… and staying out of her uterus… WHAAA-AAAA-AAAAA-TTTTT?????

Hey, Tomi, meet Michelle Fields, former Breitbart reporter, Megyn Kelly, former Faux News-ie, and many, many other women who have discovered that, for the right-wing, they’re really only pin-up babes.

Thanks to Cyclone Debbie (srsly who comes up with these names?) we are all home today as schools and universities are closed. We’re up high so we’ll be ok but it’s not pretty out there 🙁
Any Qld/northern NSW mammotheers, stay safe and stay home if you can.

Apologies for the late reply, it was a busy weekend.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I will look at Facebook groups and see what I can find.

There’s no legal abortion in Australia, so no need for escorts. Maybe looking at a group that pushes for legalisation would be a good idea.

@Croquembouche of patriarchy
Thanks, I’m not a student or working, one reason I didn’t know where to look.

@Mish of the Catlady Ascendancy
Thank you, never heard of those people (groups?), I will definitely check them out.
