If you think gay people are gross and/or sinful for decades, having people tell you your wrong makes you mad.

Reminder that lukewarm democrats are fucking terrible. Starting around 10 minutes in and citing Clinton and Obama's stance on abortion and how they completely fucked this up.

And yet in the year of my lord 2022 I still have to acknowledge these complete wastes of space are the better of the two options. God I wish people didn't hate minorities and healthcare so much

Hey, people would be fine with healthcare if you didn't insist that minorities should get it too. What's next, single-payer healthcare for dogs?

Just kidding, that would actually be much more likely to pass than any healthcare reform that might help people.

Obama: "let's focus on things we can agree on."

Like... what? Tax breaks for billionaires? What else do the two parties agree on? Because I can't think of a single thing other than that. Maybe giving more money to police and the military. So I guess that's three things they agree on. And none if it any good.

Well, they are probably not going to succeed in getting rid of judicial review. At least, they are too early.

I mean, let's not forget that the right-wing machine was gearing up for Russia apologism in both the lead-up and early days of the conflict. It was only once: they couldn't peddle the absolute BS Russia was claiming even among their own audience, the news/photos/videos of horrific war crimes came out, and it became clear that Ukraine wasn't going to just fold inside a week that they pretended they were always pro-Ukraine.

They can pretend that that beginning part didn't happen but hell if we should let them.

Loving the gutlessness of establishment Dems scolding people for protesting against this important issue in front of a Judge's house since the establishment Dems are doing nothing and can barely give a fuck about Roe v. Wade and just tell people to vote.

Like these assholes only care because it starts a precedent and they know they can be the next ones inconvenienced by the common people.

They defended the George Floyd protests because the rich weren't inconvenienced. They condemn this protest because it's against one of their own. Their concerns are entirely class-based.

States trying to get rid of judicial review is kind of interesting. I think it shocks people to find out judicial review is a uniquely American thing and not a part of most democracies, and if you step back a bit you can understand how 3 random people telling legislators that they cant pass laws is a little weird.

When the constitution falls, which seems like a when not if at this point, there is a decent argument the next government shouldnt have it even if it has benefited democrats in many cases

Judicial Review is fairly common around the world, Plum. The US has a fairly unique system of it in terms of how vast our court systems are. I have no idea why the hell you think we shouldn't have it, its a fairly basic check on power

If you compare the US, which has judicial supremacy in that theoretically there is no one that can overrule the Supreme Court absent a constitutional amendment and the UK, which has parliamentary supremacy in that Parliament can pass a regular new law that overrules any judicial decision, in both cases the supreme institution exercises great care in not changing things too much. The system is stable because of that. If Parliament legislated like the Louisiana legislature apparently thinks it proper to do, the UK system would rapidly descend into chaos like the French Revolution. Same would happen if the Supreme Court started striking down laws or creating new ones because they felt like it.

Ultimately, the stability comes from the top institution recognizing that their authority flows directly from their caution and reasonableness.

some of this (especially the stuff in Esper's book) is very difficult to believe, but at this point i can't rule it out

frankly, it doesn't even matter if it is true so i'm not going to worry about it

voters had better turn out in 2024, and 2022 for that matter

All of Trump's stupidity would be hilarious... if it were part of a tv show, and not part of real life where this is a man who could become President for four years come 2024. And that his entire party is exactly where he is on all the insane bullshit. Partly because his followers are also believers in the insane bullshit, and it's what they feel will get them elected.

And that come this year, this party will likely have control of the house of representatives thanks to years of gerrymandering and the fact that we give land more power than we give people. And let's not forget they already have control over the Supreme Court.
