have a thudding feeling this is not going to end well for the country. In 1850, the fugitive slave act was passed. This was a law that meant that any runaway slave had to be returned to their owners. Even if they had escaped to the North. Anyone aiding and abetting the escape of a slave could be persecuted.

This made everyone a co-conspirator in perpetuating slavery. There was a sharp increase in bounty hunting and vigilantism and lo and behold, free blacks from the north were kidnapped and sold into slavery.

Not a single person in America was free from this stain.

This accelerated the civil war.

This f*cking Texas law has the same stain. Guys, we are not going to turn into Gilead. We're going to turn into a crater. We are going to turn into a free for all. It's going to be a fight for our very survival.  Liberals are going to see no choice buy to grab our guns and shoot back.

Every nation that passes such draconian laws dissolves. Look at Romania under Nicolae Ceaușescu.

It took a mere 4 days for him to get booed at his Christmas address to him getting thrown against a wall and machine gunned to death.

This is the law of unintended consequences. When your state okays your neighbors to snitch on you to collect bounties on you, just because, it's not a slippery slope, it's a steep slide towards a bed of sharp spikes. Guys, it's going to go bad. Really, really bad.

FTA: "In reaching this conclusion," the majority wrote, "we stress that we do not purport to resolve definitely any jurisdictional or substantive claim in the applicants' lawsuit. In particular, this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas's law."

I love that it's always the moderates who get shiat on in the end. He voted the way we would have wanted, despite being a Republican appointee; but let's write a hit piece against him specifically because reasons.

I wonder if this happens because it is "safe" for a news source like CNN to triangulate against the middle as they avoid the wrath of the rabid partisans on either side. Almost an inverse BSAB. "Both sides are fine, it's the middle that sucks."

So we're basically at the point where the only viable way to preserve our democracy is for the left to start acting like the right and just having nominally unaffiliated terrorists murder five or six of the USSC while the party that isn't openly genocidal has the power of appointment? As in, that's literally the only physically possible way for more than 50% of the population to save their actual literal lives?

Yeah, this is a situation that ends well for everyone, for sure.

Just a reminder, 4 of the 5 Justices who agree with this abomination were nominated by a President who did not win the popular vote and confirmed by Senators from States that make up less than half of our population.

The other thought, "look at this huge dick" was an appropriate conversation topic at work.

I've already come to the conclusion that between now and next year, we will probably see one, if not a couple of targeted assassinations of Democratic lawmakers and at least 1 or possibly 2 liberal SCOTUS justices.

All one has to do is look at the national landscape to realize that the right wing in the US is getting ready to do something, and not by voting.  Hell, there was a poll recently that stated that almost every Republican in the US right now loathes Biden as much as the members of the Confederacy loathed Lincoln.  And look at what happened to Lincoln.

The right has come to realize that they can change things in the country through violence.  As many more knowledgeable people have said, they believe that what happened then was just a test run for what is to come.

Just wait until medical professionals are granted more leeway in deciding women's reproductive rights.
We will see an uptick in stories about pharmacists denying birth control. Condoms will end up behind the pharmacy counter. Husbands and parents will have more influence over their daughters/wives medical decisions. HIPAA laws will be rewritten to protect the fetus.
We're well on our way.

What a stupid headline CNN. "Lost controll over the Supreme Court".

The Chief Justice never has control. It doesn't work that way, it isn't supposed to. This court is full of some idiots, the result of a long game campaign by The Federalist Society that goes after people during law school. NS yes, it's a big problem.  But what the heck are they thinking talking about the CJ having control over the other judges. No. Just no. Stop being part of the problem.

Hell, the SCOTUS hasn't worked right since the death of Scalia.  It went from making legal decisions based on prior jurisprudence to making the law themselves.

Look at how they use their 'shadow docket' to help rewrite laws without even allowing a defense for or prosecution against before them.  I almost wonder if they'll take very few cases for the next term and just make their decisions based on the decisions they like from the 'shadow docket'.

Again, with Conservatives it's PROJECTION. Remember how they hated "Legislating from the Bench"?  How the whole "Strict Constructionalism" to which every conservative after Reagan was supposed to beholden?

Turns out it was a LONG CON.  Until they controlled enough of the Judiciary that they could just turn into a farking STAR CHAMBER. Now they just pull Law out of their ASSES and there's no way to vote them out and nothing you can do about it.

He had his chance. It would have been to tell the Senate he was accepting Garland as the nominee because they'd had plenty of time to advise and consent and since they had declined to act, consent was passive and he's on the Court. He had a chance to act like the Court was a co-equal branch of government but he let McConnell steal the Court without putting up a fight. He deserves to be irrelevant.

Can't emphasize that last bit enough.

First, the Beer Belly Putsch was an ANTIFA False Flag to make MAGAts look bad. Now, the arrested terrorists are "political prisoners" who need to be freed from a tyrannical state.

The terrorists failed on January 6th, but they are more organized (telegram, etc) and emboldened, so this shiat will be even harder to stop going forward. I'm not convinced the D leadership understands what is opposing them. They sure as hell don't act like it.

She's the poster child, but I was thinking of Charlie Baker, who is coming up for re-election and is about to get primaried because he doesn't do enough to stand up for "conservative values". I still get the "oh he's not that bad" comments from friends of mine. No, he's not, but if he has to choose between sticking up for the general public or posturing for the state party, he'll waffle and hedge until the mess is too big to contain.
