And other issues Congress and President’s argue about…
While the media focused on a crooked Donald Trump?
Alito seems to have led his own revolution ?
(This is no longer Chief Justice Roberts court…)
This while a President Joe Biden stands on the sidelines….
A court that was supposed to rule on the law?
Has now begun to set policy for millions stepping ahead of the other two branches of government….
All Republicans have to do is go to the High Court’s Alito crew….
Congress and the President can go on vacation they ain’t needed anymore…..
Will American’s just sit back and take the hit?
Of will they vote their wish for change from judges that seem to want America to go back to the ‘good’ old days that were good for only a select few….
By overturning Roe v. Wade and ending the guaranteed right to abortion nationwide, the court’s newly entrenched conservative bloc has set the country on a course toward legal and political warfare destined to last for years, a conflict perhaps even more intense than the one that has raged since Roe was decided in 1973.
The implications of the court’s ruling are difficult to overstate and nearly impossible to predict. The immediate impact will be felt by millions of women in states that will now outlaw abortions in all or virtually all circumstances. But it could be felt as well by others who now fear their rights are in danger, particularly those in the LGBTQ community.
The longer-term effects could further separate the country into culturally divided red and blue enclaves, with sharply different laws and rights, adding to the balkanization of the United States. Eventually it could — could — contribute to a reshaping of the political landscape of the country, though that depends on the degree to which abortion rights supporters, and opponents of the court’s current composition, mobilize in the way that abortion opponents have done for decades….
Friday’s ruling is a triumph for the doctrine of originalism, with significant consequences for a country with an increasingly diverse and tolerant population. “The version of American history you get from constraining your historical evidence to the documents originalists see as mythical gives you centuries of constitutional history when women and people of color were completely disenfranchised,” historian Jill Lepore said Friday. “And that’s the basis now for the continued denial of rights.”…

According to CBS/ YOU GOV Poll….
70% of Republicans ,based on absolutely nothing other than the rantings of Donald Trump and his minions , believe that Biden was not legitimately elected President of the United States
The Donald is only 4 years younger than Biden….
Most Americans accept PRESIDENT BIDEN ….
Those 70% of Republicans KNOW Trump ain’t….
As you would point out?
The stat is Bull Shit….
My Name Is Jack says
It’s not a “bull shit” stat.
It shows the current mindset of the vast majority of Republicans.They intrinsically know that it’s all a lie but they go along with it anyway,
And the lie permeates the party.Its not just Trump.Oh he started it alright, but the others quickly and eagerly joined in.
Your boy DeSantis was sending advice to Trumps lawyers about how to steal the election.Crux, Cotton, Hawley ,indeed every other major would be candidate in 2024 have endorsed the lie, as well as the majority of the Republicans in Congress and the successful candidates in this year’s Republican primaries.
The fact that you refuse to understand what’s happened to the Republican Party doesn’t make it “bull shit.”
Not Bull Shit, eh?
“They intrinsically know that it’s all a lie but they go along with it anyway…”
He, he, he….
I rest my case counsellor…
Jack is so completely right here, and this exchange with our host is the major reason I am not that interested in posting here any longer. He responded to Jack with a nonsensical quote that actually only proves Jack’s point.
The Republican Party is filled with uneducated bigots and liars who are desperate to maintain their “way of life” and the feeling of superiority that they think comes with it. Those “feelings” started with the Southern Strategy and extend to the belief that Obama was born in Africa, Hillary killed Vince Foster, and Biden stole an election. It allowed them to excuse the invasion of our Capitol as legitimate political discourse and then, as our host has tried to do, say that it’s “all the the rear view mirror.” An attempt to overthrow a legitimately elected government was no big deal as far as James is concerned — in fact, when I called him on it, he doubled down, saying nothing would come of the January 6th hearings. Nothing other than the truth, that the Republicans will firmly refuse to acknowledge.
I enjoy reading Jack’s postings and what Scott and Zreebs have to say, unfortunately they don’t visit that much anymore, nor, apparently does anyone else. I have often urged our host to self exam his comments and his obsession with responding to everything (especially when he doesn’t make sense like today). Comments that I am also firmly convinced keep others from even attempting to post lest they be lectured by someone who doesn’t know what he’s writing about. That hasn’t happened, and never will. Days go by here where James is essentially talking to himself. But, he is, if nothing else, stubborn.
Sorry ya feel that way Keith…..
I do enjoy the banter with everyone…..
But I do NOT accept the view that ‘The Donald’ reps ALL things Republican…
Nor do I accept that ALL Republicans are as stupid as the ones that tell pollsters that Biden didn’t win the election fairly….
Case in point is how overt 800 listened to Trump and acted only to be charged with crimes ….
The hearings have one after another GOPer who worked FOR or WITH Trump admitting Joe Biden won the election…That they told knucklehead Trump this….
Your dogged support of Jack’s ALL Republicans are mirror’s of Trump is just WRONG….
Everyday we hear of otherwise…
But that’s NOT True?
Well Jack is now NOT saying ALL anymore is he?
Just what I’ve been saying all along….
Everyday I examine what I write …
And how people when get paid often say the same damn things…..
I KNOW most of old commenters , like you actually visit the place…
Might drive ya a bit nuts….. but that’s okay….
For 13 years this dog has been taping the keys….
I’m planning on doing at LEAST another 13…..
And hundreds of people see my posts everyday….
They may comment only occasionally ….
And that’s fine with me…..
Good to hear from ya Keith….
Your states Governor might get in the running for the Democratic nomination for President…..
This place seems to have outlasted P1 and Election Projection also……
I make no apologies for MY point of view….
I am big enough to listen to others and come back for more…..
I’ve come to like the challage of different points of view….
I do NOT run away from them…
My Name Is Jack says
I never said “all” Republicans. I have specifically said the “vast majority.” ..That’s a total Lie on your part.Of course all who visited here know you are a pathological liar.
Your lying starts on a definite path.When someone disagrees with you,you briefly try to argue with them .That doesn’t last long of course ,because all those who post here know more about politics than you do.Unable to make a coherent argument, you then try to divert the conversation to a topic totally unrelated to the original discussion.When the original commenter points that out?Then the lying kicks in .You start claiming that the commenter says things they never said .The pattern is well known here.
Actually the above rant by you was rather sad.You are totally delusional.For awhile I thought you were just engaging in some of your well known hyperbole .However, I now believe that you really have convinced yourself that 200 people ,for reasons totally unknown, visit here every day to read your usually inane comments on the issues of the day.
I point out that u DO NOT say ALL….
He, he, he….
Using the handle that I ‘Lie’ really doesn’t bother me anymore….
I see you trying to wiggle….
U HAVE …and Keith joined U in putting ALL GOPer’s in the SAME Boat….
Like a laser I HAVE zoomed in on this….
Your dancing ain’t getting ya off the hook in my view…
