Is this guy dead and 48 of his cohorts in the Senate as well and replaced by Democrats? They arent? Then we are screwed

If FDR and his majorities in the legislative branch couldn't accomplish that, then Biden sure as Hell won't be able to.

In the end? 90% of rhetoric and reason is post hoc rationalization for why our initial feelings are correct. We're a bundle of neurons and biases bouncing around off each other. Those with legal training and rhetorical skill just baffle with bullshiat.

This is why philosophers drink.

FDR was a tyrant who controlled large majorities in both houses and couldn't get it done. But keep pissing in the wind.

Well here we are on the eve of abortion being outlawed in the USA. The conservatives are calling covid a hoax, and even worse, elections fake. What is at the root of this? I've said it before and I am sure I will say it again many times, Christianity is at the heart of this evil.

Welcome to the American Christian National Socialist Republic.

Oral arguments today made clear that this court will overturn Roe-and that they'll insist on their own reasonableness the whole time.

And you'll keep talking shiat on Democrats no matter what.

Somebody needs serious dirt on Manchin and Sinema to force them to kill the filibuster.  Then increase the court to 13 justices.  Pass a bigger BBB.  Pass all the things!  Fix this shiat right proto quick before 2022, most especially election fixes.

I have no problem blackmailing those 2 evil bastards.

HotIgneous Intruder: The Roberts Court was the one that destroyed the nation, bunch of farking clowns in robes.


Back during Oberfell, people were saying Roberts was really concerned about how future generations would view "the Roberts Court", and he didn't want to be the subject of classes about bad judging in law schools.  He seems to have gotten over that.

Don't worry. There's a way to blame Democrats, who had a supermajority at the time, for this.

He could have, but the threat of it was enough to accomplish what he wanted so he didn't go through with it. In theory we should have N+1 Supreme Court Justices with N being the number of Federal districts so expanding the court would be more of an update anyway.

I wonder what conservatives will think when modern DNA testing can easily unmask the fathers of these unwanted children cheaply and the courts impose child support to them?  We didn't have this type of clarity in the past, at this point we have enough data to pinpoint the dad even if they didn't take the test.
The second point is how their criminal justice and civil courts will pivot to make time to enforce a narrow set of religious dogma.  Will red states setup special morality courts?

We are becoming a fascist evangelical theocratic nation. Just wait - Roe is just the beginning.  The US is dying right before our eyes.

If the Democrats don't get a spine and the people dont rise up, we're dead in the water. Seriously.  People are looking through rose colored glasses and think everything will be okay because it's been ok.

It's NOT ok. We need to be prepared for this.

dionysusaur: They're doing as their owners require.


A homegrown underclass of desperate, impoverished, under-educated workers, eager to be exploited for crumbs, is always superior to an imported one made of immigrants.  For one thing, the immigrants make a much more convenient scapegoat & bogeyman, politically speaking.  For another, they might bring in "different" ideas with them from their foreign culture... like maybe standing up for themselves, demanding better pay or treatment.  Can't have that...

I'm sure if the bill hit Obama's desk he would have signed it, but the House Democrats hardly had a "Super-majority" at the time, and it is not like there wasn't anything going on at that time that would have taken up all the legislative agenda...

The D comes after the name.  And apparently we don't have dirt on them.  Yes, I mean real dirt, like tax records, videos, paternity tests, proof of criminal depravity in any form.  Not just acting like corporate tools, which is legal but unethical asshole behavior.

Imagine a marker for homosexuality or one of the many intersex conditions. Some of those don't develop until puberty.

You can be damn sure they'd be scraping the gay away.

A simple, straightforward solution that a Republican president would absolutely not hesitate to do if the situation were reversed. The Republican president would do it, the Democrats would howl like banshees for weeks, and then America's new 13, 15, or 17 member Supreme Court would f*cking HAPPEN, and the assholes who voted Republican WOULD GET WHAT THEY VOTED FOR.

Democrats need to stop conducting all their business with a timid eye on how the Republican Party will react to it. Accept that Republicans will shriek and sob and moan at anything you do, and then get to doing what we f*cking sent you to Washing to goddamn do.
