Sorry I’m behind on some of my current event memes. I was on vacation hiking in Utah last week. Yes, I did beat the crap out of Romney while I was there.
On the possible Roe v Wade reversal, there isn’t much more to be said that wasn’t said all last week. I will say that if the decision really does go through, it will be one of the most pro-choice abortion decisions the Supreme Court has ever issued. In other words, the choice is now up to the states. I’m not confident that Kavanaugh and Barrett will maintain their current votes, so don’t get too emotional about the decision just yet.

Virtually every Democrat has whined about hypocrisy and unfairness in Amy Coney Barrett getting appointed to the Supreme Court in an election year. Never mind almost all of them said the exact opposite when Obama nominated Merrick Garland. Clearly, there is hypocrisy on both sides, but the system is really working as it’s designed — checks and balances. Barack Obama was able to get two far-left justices confirmed prior to 2016 (Sotomayor and Kagan). Those appointees, Obamacare, and other actions in his presidency led to a Republican red wave election in 2010 and the eventual takeover of the U.S. Senate. In other words, the American people were voting to STOP further Obama damage; it was a check to balance out Obama’s freedom-crushing power. Liberals are worried the new Supreme Court makeup will overturn Obamacare, but they wouldn’t be worried if it wasn’t so obviously unconstitutional. And it’s not as popular as the media likes to tout in occasional polls (which are about as reliable as election polls). Flashback to January 2010: Obamacare passed in the Senate in unfinished form with the understanding the House would fix its obvious flaws and send back. Democrats held a 60-seat filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, but this became 59 seats when Ted Kennedy died, so a special election was needed to fill his Massachusetts seat. In one of the most liberal states in the country, Republican Scott Brown won a stunning victory almost entirely on his promise to vote against Obamacare. Without that 60th vote, Obamacare had to go through in the flawed, half-baked state even most Democrats thought needed to be fixed.
Donald Trump’s election, along with the 2018 increase in Republican Senate seats, were both building on the desire of the American people to put a check on DC’s erosion of freedom, along with Supreme Court justices making laws rather than interpreting laws. Threats to “pack” the Supreme Court by adding justices completely undermines its legitimacy as both parties can do it when they’re in power. I’m thinking Trump should float the idea of adding 3 more justices now to increase the conservative majority even more. Maybe then the media/Democratic party will actually think through how ludicrous the court-packing idea is.

Liberal fascists can’t even tolerate a non-political post praising both liberal and conservative women.
The impact of “court packing”, or adding more justices until you can control the court interpretations, cannot be underestimated. It undermines our third branch of government and our entire system of checks and balances. The reason the USA has survived centuries and never undergone totalitarian rule is because of our system of curbing unchecked power. If one party gets control of the Presidency, Senate, and House of Representatives while having no court system to strike down anything they do, it could theoretically re-structure the entire U.S. system, removing any constitutional protections in the process. It’s sad that half the country doesn’t see any problem with one-party totalitarian rule as long as it’s “their” party. As for court packing, it goes both ways. If the Democrats pack the court in 2021, the Republicans could regain control in 2024 and do the same. Whenever you construct a system where one party can take over everything and restructure so they stay in power forever, there’s always the threat of the other party being the one to take advantage of it. Here’s the best argument against court packing: imagine total one-party rule with someone you strongly dislike or fear in charge–Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Donald Trump, George W. Bush, etc.; how many liberals do you think would support court packing if Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and Supreme Court with Donald Trump…or say, Tucker Carlson or Rush Limbaugh in charge?
