    Vetting the Justice

    Voting on justices isn’t supposed to be a partisan issue. We are headed down a road where the President will not receive a vote on any of his judicial nominations - no matter when they are made during his/her term - unless the President and the Senate are from the same political party. Is that...

    After Roe v Wade is overturned, then what?

    Nobody is advocating for killing babies. If you can’t discuss this topic without resorting to lazy rhetoric, maybe it’s best you sit this one out.

    Would you support packing the courts?

    I don’t think packing the court is necessary, but if the Dems do it I would support it. What really needs to happen is voter reform - making Election Day a federal holiday, automatic voter registration upon turning 18, passing legislation to prevent Republican voter suppression tactics, making...

    Moving on a Supreme Nominee

    If your response to this situation is “tough shit, Republicans have control of the Senate and can do what they want...” Surely you would have no issues if Donald Trump won re-election in 2020, appointed a SCOTUS nominee in March 2021, and a Democrat-majority Senate refused to vote on the...

    So What's The Response When Trump Nominates And They're Confirmed?

    If Trump’s nominee is appointed, the division is only going to get worse. We are headed towards a situation where if the President and Senate are controlled by different parties, the Senate is not going to vote on the President’s judicial nominees, regardless of whether they are nominated in an...

    Amy Comey Barrett

    She swore a lifelong oath of loyalty to a religious cult. She has written articles in the past stating that judges should recuse themselves from cases that conflict with their faith. There is a legitimate concern that she would make decisions not based on the law, but on her own religious...

    You are really bad at trolling.

    I have the solution for RBG’s replacement that should satisfy everyone...

    Because there is no such thing as a “constitutionalist.” A “constitutionalist” is just a justice that cites the Constitution when it helps them reach their desired end result, and ignores the Constitution when it does not.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died from Cancer at 87. Sorry, Mitch, but Whoever Wins in November MUST Nominate her Replacement

    They do if the Democrats decide to fight fire with more fire. If the Republicans push through a SCOTUS nominee, the next time the Dems have control of the Senate and the President they should pack the court, set the SCOTUS age limit at 70 (would remove 2 conservative justices and 1 liberal...

    I have the solution for RBG’s replacement that should satisfy everyone...

    It means that a justice rules the way OP wants them to. Conservatives have convinced themselves that any judicial ruling they do not like is just “judicial activism,” while every decision that they do like is simply following the Constitution. It would be kind of cute if it wasn’t so Phvcking...

    Karen mad that CVS employee called police on two black shoplifters.

    I’ll take “things no one said” for $800, Alex.

    Karen mad that CVS employee called police on two black shoplifters.

    Oh, I didn’t realize that. I guess racism no longer exists then. Hooray!!!

    Karen mad that CVS employee called police on two black shoplifters.

    Of course there is some aspect of personal accountability and responsibility. Literally no one is disputing that. And no one is “condoning crime.” I’m just not dumb enough to think that hundreds of years of systemic injustices is going to magically disappear by black people taking more “personal...

    Karen mad that CVS employee called police on two black shoplifters.

    It’s really not that hard to figure out. Poverty and crime are very highly correlated. Surely you know that for hundreds of years, Black people were not afforded the same educational and employment opportunities as white people. They were also discriminated against in housing and essentially...

    Karen mad that CVS employee called police on two black shoplifters.

    Black people are 4x as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people despite using it at the same rate. Black people are 4x as likely to have their vehicles searched than white people, despite being less likely to be carrying illegal contraband. There are dozens of other...

    Johnston Hy-Vee is NOT going to be 100% self checkout after all!

    I haven’t been inside a grocery store since the pandemic started (just get everything delivered), but I would use self checkout 100 times out of 100 if it’s available. The Amazon stores that allow you to just grab stuff off the shelves and go would be my ideal grocery store.

    So seriously, why is there still no WH response to Russia putting bounties on US troops?

    Breitbart and Townhall? LOL. Why do so many conservatives complain about the FAKE NEWS MEDIA!!! and then frequent actual fake news websites?

    ****Official (?) NBA Playoffs Thread****

    Houston’s defense was pretty good after the restart. Houston decided to help off the Lakers’ scrubs and make guys like Rondo, Morris, Caruso, etc. make shots, and they did. If those guys continue to hit shots, no one is beating the Lakers. If they revert back to the norm - who knows.

    What is the middle ground on - abortion

    100% this. The GOP isn’t interested in compromise. If they took reasonable steps to actually reduce the number of abortions (free birth control, better sex education, reduced cost childcare, etc.), they might lose a sizable chunk of single issue anti-abortion voters. That’s WAY more important to...

    Who do you blame for B10 not playing?

    All of the above played a role. Especially OP’s mom.
