The SCOTUS is a body that will always rule based on the US Constitution, and is above reproach or political fealty.

I was taught that, I accepted that, and now at the age of 78 I find that it is just another conspiracy theory.

I started questioning that with Bush v. Gore.

Its funny, in terms of the other thread with the maga dude coming full circle. You guys coming full circle would be to realize that there IS a deep state and it's actually trying to implement a christo-fascist regime - and you cant trust the media.

What's said about Kaiser is that you have to work them, work the system. I met a guy who said you have to have an advocate, at least for certain circumstances. To get what he wanted out of them he would go to great lengths. At least some of this had to do with his aging mother.
This was also true for me with Cigna, at one point I had two different people with different titles/positions within their organization working with me in order to receive coverage that was explicitly spelled out in my plan, and still couldn't get everything covered that should have been.

It's already been on my mind because even if I was a stupid single issue voter.. kicking criminal migrants out wouldn't be my first and most important issue.

It'd be healthcare..

The number of people who go bankrupt every year because of medical bills.

UK - 0
France - 0
Spain - 0
Denmark - 0
Iceland - 0
Italy - 0
Finland - 0
United States - 643,000
This would be a helluva thing to drop in a debate

Nikki Haley might be the worst potus candidate in the last 20 odd years.

Wrong talking points, wrong stances, wrong reading of voters, wrong party and basically parroting off billionaire wall street donor commandments!
Top it off with either no knowledge of or a denial of history.

If after Dobbs.. states still vote for Trump and the GOP.. they're a lost cause!

Has nothing to do with Biden.

It wouldn't surprise me at the least. They won't work where they are not worshiped.

Well we already know from Uvalde.. they won't stop kids from dying.. they can't be bothered.

So maybe just letting crime happen and getting there later for photo ops is the new normal!

Keystone Cops -- They have got their country back!

Ha ha ha ha. What a bunch of maroons.

Now I haven't heard of "turbo cancer", so unfortunately I had to look it up . 5 point IQ drop
That one dude said five family members died from the vaccine. Bullshit.

Here the turbo cancer.

Bigger chance of turbo cancer from eating hot dogs with all the preservatives they put in there.

But those same people afraid of turbo cancer love shelling out $9 for a hotdog at a ball park!

I suspect I've said this before, but on those occasions when Trump gets visibly berated back into line by his own fanclub I have the same thought.

It makes me think of Kurtz and "The horror, the horror" from Heart of Darkness (and Apocalypse Now).

There's a theory (based on The Golden Bough) that the story involved a reference to the belief among some tribes that followed their leader like a God, that if the bodily form of the God showed any signs of weakening, it was necessary to kill and eat them, so as to ensure the God's essence would find a new healthy host.

The theory goes that Kurtz was freaking out because he was aware that's what his followers' were thinking about. Given that, it's not surprising Trump wears all that fake tan and is so desperate to appear young and vigorous.

So the MAGAtards would off the orange menace, make a bunch of quarter pounders out of him and then eat him?

Yeah, that could work.

Any of those anti-vaxx rabbit holes are the same. You lose an additional 5 IQ points if it's on Facebook.

It has happened from time to time in history.

For example: Julius Caesar in the Ides of March.. hmm we're in March..

But more in more recent times the Egyptian President Sadat who signed a peace treaty with Israel was assassinated by his own die hards.

Today's CT -

They are intentionally screwing up diversity and inclusion in movies and games. That's why how it's done is so ham fisted and cringe worthy. They will stop doing it soon. In response to the very vocal minority they will simply say it lost all the monies. No monies, no movies or games. Ergo they are forced to make what sells. You'll just have to settle for the traditional lip service being paid to the idea and token representation. They won't say that part out loud.

Otherwise they would not mess with the cannon of existing fandoms, films, comics, and games. They would create new characters, new stories, and new "universes" for them to inhabit without color, gender, or ethnicity being a primary defining trait of the characters. The Marvels was a girl boss movie from director to writers to actors. It absolutely tanked. No way they spent that much money and had no idea it was going to bomb. The powers that be are playing it out so that they can squash it for good. Madame Web is another WTF how did it get made? How about Suicide Squad kills the Justice League? The way they handled Batman, they had to know that was going to make everyone go bananas.

Yup, they are going to sacrifice some monies now, so they can kill off any need to consider inclusion in major properties moving forward.

Thank you for attending my TED talk.

You maybe onto something but they accidently make cult classics that way sometimes.
