The Supreme Court

Recommended Posts

The Supreme Court is an immediate issue. 

The attempt absolutely has to be made. And if Biden signs off (a really tall task there as he's already said no), then Manchin will be pressed, by Biden... to fall in line.

These two are not mutually exclusive. Both can be processed at the same time.

But if you don't recognize the immediacy of the Supreme Court... I can't help you there...

Joe Manchin comes from one of the reddest states in the country and voted to confirm Kavanaugh. There's other red state Democrats that won't be onboard. There is then nothing stopping Republicans from expanding the court when they get control.

If you don't recognize you can't fix the Supreme Court without fixing the senate, I can't help you there.

LOL counting our blessings for a justice that wants to overturn Roe, end ACA, and couldn't even answer basic questions about voter suppression. Her whole three years as an appeals judge makes her well qualified and her inability to answer what's in the First Amendment makes her intelligent. 

She said she thinks ACB will be a good justice.

That's not a true statement.

Rather than add judges I would prefer to set term limits. There is already a bill in the House that would limit terms to 18 years. Current sitting judges are exempt. Retiring judges will be allowed to sit on lower courts. This would give each president two appointments per term.

Packing the court would be like an arms race with each side adding judges.

So how are you going to add justices without the senate? 

you can add members to the HOR, which will reverse some of the tilt of the EC away from the mountain west states and help keep coastal control of the presidency. 500- would be a good number. House districts are too big anyway.

This seems like a move that the Republicans couldn't retaliate against because adding more seats I'm guessing wouldn't help them.

The Dems will have the Senate, plus Harris after this election.

Your turn.

I don't think the Dems will have the votes in the senate. Moderate Democrats like Manchin and Sinema won't go for that along with other red state Democrats. You still haven't answered how you stop the Republicans from retaliating when they control the senate because they will at some point. 

Your turn.

It's at least two years before the Senate will shift again, in any direction. That's two years to add DC and Puerto Rico and split CA or any other tricks Dems can pull out of their sleeves...

And I've already stated I believe Manchin & Sinema will succumb to pressure by the White House. We may differ on that... obviously, which is why we are where we're at...

But the SC is critical and immediate. That's where I'm going to push hard.

I just don't see the senator who voted to confirm Kavanaugh supporting packing the supreme court with liberal Justices.

Split California into two states?  As long as we are coming up with dream scenarios, can New  England become part of Canada?

I don't think splitting a state that has more people than Canada is far fetched.

I think there's a movement afoot to promote "Latinx" as a catch-all gender-free term, but I don't think it's getting much traction with actual Latinos.

there's a "movement afoot" in the same areas where there is a movement afoot by some liberals to always change the language, you cis-gendered hetero...

and youre correct that most latinos find it laughable that white people are so offended by their language.

I dated a Mexican woman for quite some time and at no point did she indicate that Latino or Latina was offensive. 

im married to a mexican woman and she finds all this to be hilarious and another attempt by white liberals to tell latinos what to think about themselves.

A lot of people were caught off guard about 15 years ago by the sudden unacceptability of Oriental.  Including the Oriental Blood Brothers, a mostly-Vietnamese street gang here in Hamilton.  They changed to Original Blood Brothers, keeping the "O" so that they would not have to re-spray all their tags.

Not to mention splitting California would more than likely add two additional GOP Senators to the mix.

Canada is such a magical place that even their street gangs are progressive and politically correct.

How so? Keep the Bay Area in the north and Los Angeles in the south. I'm quite certain in a state with over 40 million people that's 60% at least Democratic you can gerrymander two more Democratic senators.

Obviously depends on where they draw the line. The various proposals put forth in California were usually led by the rural folks so those wouldn’t really work out for the Dems.
