So they want to take US back to before 1929, when the rich and corporate did exactly what they pleased and bought the politicians openly and somewhere just after slavery - but before reconstruction. I see that.
Have they already colonized another planet for the rich and corporate? Cause mother nature is already aggressively letting US know that she’s pissed. And those white people who continue to vote against their own economic interest because they don’t want to loose the status of “white entitlement” that their skin color provide - don’t realize that they will not benefit from any of the destruction that will happen.
We live in a CORPORATE MILITARY POLICE STATE !
SUPPORT INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM-----SUPPORT THE COMMONS
Hypocrisy is the least of Republicans’ pathologies. But they are not “stealing” this Supreme Court seat. They stole the seat that opened up during Obama’s last year in office, but they just lucked out with this one. It’s a tragedy, but it’s legal.
Absolutely correct. Personally don’t remember much about the Merrick Garland thing except it happened but if vague memories serve, neither the the Dems nor the ‘great O’ took it up to a higher court. Had they
taken it up and lost (no judicial appointments in an election year), then there would be a legal precedent against a quickie process filling Ginsberg’s seat - a considerably more reliable thing than Lindsay Graham’s word on anything. Had they won (judicial appointments permitted in an
election year), Obama would have filled another seat during his tenure in office. .
This would be important, if there were an opposition party that wanted anything different. We’re going to get another corporationist, whether they are named by Trump or Biden.
The Dems under Obama did not fight for that seat.
Nothing new, they constantly capitulate and pretend the Repubs are all bullies.
