June 26, 2013

Salon contributing writer, Rebecca Traister explained Texas’s draconian new reproductive laws, Wendy Davis’s unexpected and amazing filibuster and how galvanizing will this moment be?

Ari Berman, explained how the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, why the ruling helps southern states recreate segregation in Congressional districts, how Justice Roberts “imagined” his way to a ruling and how Justice Kennedy has disgraced himself in his votes on healthcare reform and Voting Rights.

On The Better Half: DOMA overturned, the fake IRS “scandal” dies again, Glenn Beck and Rand Paul wonder if ending DOMA could lead to more Muslims!? And your IMs.
