Woman targeted by sheriff for her ‘f*ck Trump’ sticker is now selling them — and they’re going fast

Published

The woman targeted by the Fort Bend County, Texas sheriff for her vulgar anti-Trump truck sticker is now selling her wares online.

According to Houston’s KHOU news station, Karen Fonseca and her kids are selling the stickers for $15 a piece — and they’re going fast.

“I never chose to be in the news at all,” Fonseca said. “Until [Sheriff] Troy Nehls made it public on his personal Facebook page.”

The report notes that the stickers were created by young members of the Fort Bend County Democrats who designed the decal who are now backlogged with orders for the notorious sticker.

“It’s turned into this bigger thing, everything is back ordered,” Ali Hasanali, a Fort Bend-area Democrat, told KHOU. “We can’t print enough, even if they want to buy now there’s going to be a delay because we have to print a lot more up.”

Hasanali praised Fonseca and said she has become “a rallying cry for anyone who cares about individual liberties.”

He added that Fort Bend County Democrats’ sticker sales will go towards voter registration drives that will help elderly voters get to the polls.

‘White Identity Politics’ and white backlash: How we wound up with a racist in the White House

Published

on

Today's Republican Party is the largest, most powerful and most dangerous white racist organization in the United States -- if not the world. Donald Trump, the president of the United States, is its leader. These are plain if not understated facts. No embellishment is needed. The examples are many.  Over the last few days Donald Trump has repeatedly dug into his bucket of racist political scatology, saying on Twitter and elsewhere that four nonwhite members of Congress ("Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen," as he mockingly put it) should leave America and go back to their own "crime infested" and "totally broken" countries.

Trump’s packed Supreme Court backs ‘forced arbitration’ that bars workers from taking abusive bosses to court

Published

on

Corporations are rapidly rendering sexual harassment, race and gender discrimination, life-threatening workplaces and wage theft immune to employee legal action.

They achieve this by forcing the vast majority of non-union private-sector workers to sign away their rights to go to court or use class or collective arbitration. Instead many millions of workers are being forced to forgo these efficient legal ways to resolve issues and to file individual arbitration claims.

A new report from the Economic Policy Institute and the Center for Popular Democracy says that by 2024 more than 80% of non-union private-sector workers will find courthouse doors chained shut by forced arbitration clauses that ban lawsuits and collective actions. (EPI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank created in 1986 to press the needs of low- and middle-income workers in economic policy discussions.)

Corporations can legally put carcinogens in our food without warning labels — here’s why

Published

on

A recent study by the Environmental Working Group revealed something horrifying: Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the popular weedkiller Roundup, was present in 17 of the 21 oat-based cereal and snack products at levels considered unsafe for children. That includes six different brands of Cheerios, one of the most popular American cereals.

I've written before about the limits of corporate free speech when it comes to public safety, but on that occasion I discussed this insofar as it involved corporate-sponsored climate change denialism. Yet here we have something more tangible, more direct: The safe glyphosate limit for children is 160 parts per billion (ppb), yet Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch has 833 parts per billion and regular Cheerios has 729 ppb. While the potential risks of glyphosate are fiercely debated, many scientists believe that it is linked to cancer.
