Chalk. If it’s been a while since you’ve held a piece of it or seen someone else use something, a quick reminder that this soft, porous, sedimentary carbonate rock is popularly used in the classroom, by young children, or outside in shops. coffee to attract customers with promises of cold beer and freshly baked goods. They come in a variety of colors and one of the reasons they are so popular is probably because of the ease of erasing their markings, with just water. Unlike permanent inks, they are used almost exclusively in a non-hazardous manner. However, according to Senator Susan Collins, Her life recently flashed before her eyes because of this substance and the way it was used.
Maine’s Bangor Daily News reported that the Republican congressman called the police over the weekend after “an unknown person or persons wrote a chalk-based pro-abortion message on the sidewalk” outside her home. At this point, you might be wondering how literally anything written in chalk needs to call the police. Is the message particularly threatening? Does it say something about the Collins family and what could happen to them if she doesn’t do exactly what the writer or writer asks? Erm, not exactly.
Yes, the actual message mentioned — written mostly in pink chalk — was simply “Susie, please… Mainers want the WHOA —–> vote yes, clean up your mess.” The WHOA refers to the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify abortion rights, and Collins has said she won’t vote for it. According to Bangor Daily News, police responded to the Collins home at 9:20 p.m. Saturday; As it should have been clear, a force spokesman noted that “The message was not an overt threat.” The local Public Works Department reported that the messages had been cleaned up and had not been found by Monday afternoon. “We are grateful to the Bangor police officers and City public works officers who responded to the rummage of public property in front of our home,” Collins said in a statement that should have been released. she should be ashamed to be released.
The not-at-all-threatening chalk aside — the cops wrote, “please,” because damn it — it could be Collins is benefiting because deep down, she knows she’s helped. helping millions of people who are pregnant, voted to endorse both Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, even though Donald Trump declared publicly that he would appoint exclusively Supreme Court justices who would help turn the tide Roe v. Wade. In Kavanaugh’s case, Collins insisted that Justice Beer Bong had told her he believed the landmark ruling was “a settled law.” What made Collins look rather stupid last week, after the leaked draft of the court opinion, revealed that both Kavanaugh and Gorsuch were intent on helping to abolish reproductive rights.
But she doesn’t seem to feel bad enough about it to actually do anything useful, saying that not only would she vote against the Women’s Health Protection Act, she wouldn’t support the act. close the investigation to give Democrats the votes they need to pass it right away. (While Collins and Lisa Murkowski are sponsoring their own bill called the Reproductive Choices Act, which is much narrower than the Women’s Health Protection Act, and Democrats say it has loopholes for allows states like Mississippi to ban abortions after 15 weeks. That… not very helpful.)
Over the weekend, protesters gathered outside the home of Kavanaugh and the judge John Roberts, and although gatherings are said to be peaceful and nonviolent, conservatives have supported the perceived impolite behavior, and the idea that people will protest outside. houses. Incidentally, those who thought the protests were beyond the bland curiously ignored the fact that counterterrorism activists had opposed legal medical procedure with arson, bombings, and arson. and murder.
