    You need a better name than APALFF. I'd go with American Patriotic Patriots for Americans who Love Liberties and Educating Dumbasses.

    A lot of people do not like this kind of non-sense, including a lot of independents and people that are moderate.... especially that have children.

    I don't think that these types of organizations are beneficial at the federal level and sometimes not at the state level. I suppose it is important in a Republican primary, but most people know that these women are extremists and do not like them - the issue is that they motivate people who otherwise would vote Republican or not vote, to make sure they vote because they have kids impacted by this.

    The two major parties cater to the extreme too often on some social issues.

    Yeah, instead of public schools they're districted in, they went to magnet schools or private instead. She took one of her kids to a middle school magnet (which gave prio to high school waiting list) and most of them were white. The parents low-key uncomfortable with "other students" and the kids weren't that better...

    As for where the parents that could moved to, it was further north into places like Leander.

    Poor Sarah J. Maas .......... she is apolitical and writes fantasy books based on fairy tales..... and she has "marginalized groups" on the left calling her a bigot for not having more characters that are minorities and protesting her books --- now she has right wing weirdos trying to ban her books, which are largely meant for those under 25 years old.

    I would love nothing better than to get both extremes in a locked room, turn the lights out and come back and open the door a week later after they have devoured each other.

    The Taliban just needs to change their name to Liberty Jihadis for Freedom. Its all about that branding.

    I’ve personally taken back the flag. **** you, you can’t have my flag. I’ve got a kid leaving for the Navy in days I can count telling me that his driving motivation is that “democracy is under attack everywhere, and someone has to defend it.” Yeah, leave my ****ing flag alone, traitors.
