School boards across the state are being forced to ban transgender girls from participating in high school sports with teams that match how they live their lives.

The unbeatable transgender athlete is not a thing. Trans athletes are in fact rare. What this law is about is telling GOP voters they should be afraid of the unfamiliar, and making sure transgender students are told they're the ones who are unfamiliar and don't belong. Read more»

Finance Committee hearing, Oct. 19, 2021)

News flash: U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema pulls an attention-seeking move to make herself so much more super-important. Or not. And my hot take: Eyeroll. Of course she did. Read more»

Just as Democrats got that one-seat cushion from Raphael Warnock’s victory over Herschel Walker Tuesday night, Arizona's Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has to do this. Read more»

I’m extremely happy that Brittney Griner is coming home after spending the past eight months in a Russian prison for bringing vape cartridges containing less than a gram of cannabis oil into the fascist country. Vladimir Putin made Griner his political prisoner. Read more»

"While homelessness itself is not a crime, those living on the streets are causing much of the vandalism, theft, drug dealing and use, public indecency, physical attacks, and other illicit and illegal behaviors." — Supervisor Steve Christy Read more»

The question of whether this case is ready for litigation is particularly relevant because Smith does not yet offer wedding websites services and no charges have been brought against her under Colorado’s anti-discrimination law.

Supreme Court justices appeared sympathetic to a Colorado-based web designer who claims the state's Anti-Discrimination Act violates her First Amendment free speech rights - even though she does not yet offer the services in question and no charges have been brought against her. Read more»

If the Cherokee Nation is successful in its bid, Kimberly Teehee, the nominated delegate, will join delegates representing the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and other U.S. territories as a nonvoting member of the House.

In 1835, the Cherokee Nation was promised a delegate in Congress as part of the same treaty – Treaty of New Echota – that led to the death of thousands on the Trail of Tears. Nearly 200 years later, the Cherokee are still fighting to make that promise a reality. Read more»

Free water was destined to run out eventually. Facing this problem in the West will be difficult, considering that politics and culture have worked in tandem for so long to keep 'government' out of government-subsidized water.
