Come on, I know it's FARK but there's no reason to be so ridiculous in painting how conservatives think. That definition also applies to how they refer to non black women who question their nonsense.

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson has made it clear in her first two days on the Supreme Court that she is not just any new justice. She is a justice who is ready to do what needs to be done.

To be the third dissenting voice when the other six decide to run roughshod on the country just because they feel like it?

So many articles these days pretend that sick burns matter.  They don't.  Winning matters.  Only winning matters.  Republicans are evil shiatbags, but they understand that (McConnel does, at least), which is why Conservative justices are dismantling our country while the Liberal justices are being lauded for "strong statement[s]."

Amazing that nominating a supremely qualified person ends up showing how unqualified some of the more recent nominees are

At least when Republicans take away my birth control and nullify the gay marriages of my friends, I'll be able to sleep at night knowing that Justice Jackson articulated it really well that it'd be bad if they did that.
 
2022-10-06 12:42:35 AM  
Cute, we finally got 9 Supreme Court Justices. Let's round it up to 13 Justices to account for the appellate courts that sit below the racist jerks who are currently on the Bench. #AddTheJudge

The common refrain is that black women have to work twice as hard to get half as far.

White conservatives don't have to work at all. They just have to sell their piddly souls.

We see the results immediately.

A democratic nominee to the court needs to be the best of the best. A republican nominee to the court needs to be a completely compromised mouth breathing idiot.
 
2022-10-06 12:58:20 AM  
Her logic is iron-clad and perceptive. It's a shame nothing she says or does matters, legally speaking.

The six fascists could rule in the most heinous way possible using the argument "Because they stuck that uppity [string of misogynistic and racist slurs] on the bench with us, so f*ck you, that's why," and there's literally f*ck-all anyone will do about it.
 
2022-10-06 1:00:06 AM  
I mean she really, really did.

The problem is that the conservative justices are intellectually and ethically bankrupt, and can't actually be swayed by argument, no matter how correct or persuasive. Because they're not judges, they're political operatives.

So, sadly, it was all for naught.

Why don't you just drop the entire unwanted facade, abolish the court completely, and have the President be the one who decides what the law means? It would be a lot easier than continuing to pretend that you want any sort of independence or impartiality to be exercised.

It is.


Fun fact: "the woodshed" is a term used by drummers that means practicing because it was a place that was remote from the family, because drums are loud. Also crying children are loud which is why you take them behind the woodshed to beat them.

Where did they mention that the executive should decide what the law is? SC justices should rule based on the law, not political leanings. Reforming the courts is not some new and magical thing - I'd think that a 50/50 ideological balance would be great for democracy

The Democrats aren't the ones who have nominated justices served up by an organization that makes lists of judges curated to accomplish specific political goals.

The conservative justices aren't impartial or independent, and their opinions make it clear that their decisions are nakedly based on preference and not interpretation.

Short term, yes. Long term, well-reasoned dissents often come back as support in majority decisions. Registering objections now matters for the future.

Not only did Kavanaugh's debts disappear, the Federalist head of the FBI looked the other way at dozens of complaints about his behavior. Wait... Wray LIED about investigating him.

I'd like the court's liberal justices to write their own opinions and blue states just go with that.  That has to be the new deal.

McConnell's senate did not fulfill their constitutional obligation when they refused even consider Garland.   That undermines the constitution.

We are not playing by the same rules ever since then.  The constitution is meaningless, therefore SCOTUS majority opinions 👏 should 👏 not 👏  matter 👏 anymore 👏

https://www.oyez.org/cases/2022/21-1086 has the audio for the oral arguments. You can listen to Alito continually pronounce "Gingles" with a "G" instead of a "J" despite hearing all of the other justices and litigants repeatedly pronouncing it correctly.
