    Gorsuch applies Humpty Dumpty Theory of Language to Title VII, Civil Rights Act 1964

    NOTE: I would appreciate posters sticking to the legal aspects of the opinion. Justice Gorsuch’s majority opinion in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia , ignored the rules of statutory construction by ignoring the distinction between " sexual orientation discrimination " and " sex...

    Roe Vs Wade appears to be ripe for overturning

    Erroneous precedents in previous Supreme Court rulings are in no way sacred or set in stone. They are subject to the U.S. Constitution as it was written, originally understood, and intended. If former Supreme Court rulings are unconstitutional, then precedent must be overturned. Kavanaugh...

    Do Republicans really think Gorsuch and Kavanaugh will protect Donald (Mafia Don) Trump?

    I think you have to seperate the ideology from from the justice aspect. Republicans dream of ruining the lives of millions of gays and women. They believe in always being against blacks and other racial minorities. The conservative court sees corporations as "people". And they should have...

    Can Justices On The Supreme Court Phone It In????

    Ginsberg voted today on the decision to knock down Trumps policy on asylum seekers who enter the country unlawfully. I'm curious how she participated from her hospital bed? I can't find anything online. Thoughts?

    Chief Justice Roberts Rebukes Trump

    Trump did something unconstitutional. If he was a black guy, the pseuedocons would have added that to their growing List O'Reasons To Impeach they used to copy and paste on this forum a few years ago. A federal judge placed an injunction on Trump's action. So, as predictable as the sun...

    Who's Dividing Who?

    For two years our government and its unelected bureaucracy has been telling us that Russia "sowed seeds of discord" on Facebook and in other media. The SCOTUS nomination hearings over the last couple of weeks made it clear to me that both sides of our 2-party run government and their media...

    Kavanaugh gives us the opportunity to talk "White Privilege".

    Clearly Kavanaugh was demanding the open seat in the Supreme Court be turned over to him. He played football. He lifts weights. He plays basketball. He drinks beer. Underage drinking? OK. Drinking parties? OK. He went to a prep school and Yale. He's white. Therefore, he deserves to be...

    Republicans are giving Democrats a lesson in EXACTLY how "rigged" works.

    Squashing Merrick Garland's nomination. Rushing Bret Kavanaugh's nomination through. Releasing thousands of documents a few hours before a hearing. Refusing to let Ford have any witnesses. Refusing an FBI investigation. Refusing to call Mark Judge as a witness. This reminds me of all...

    What will happen when Republicans overturn a woman's right to control her own body?

    Will Republican women applaud the right to an abortion being taken away from them?

    Soon, we will have another radical right wing judge. Roe versus Wade is very close to being taken away from women as a right. After all, Trump said women who get an abortion should be punished. Will losing this woman's right be OK to women in the US? Should women be punished for getting an...
