U.S. Politics: Hey! Teachers! Leave Them Kids Alone

What the fuck are you talking about? Where have you been for years?

The Republicans already stole a Supreme Court seat. This is not hypothetical. They literally already pulled this trigger. The only recourse is to fight back.

declining to have hearings for a year is completely different than adding justices to the court.

Oh bro, I know them bitches did this to us. I just didn't want to you continue suckling at the corrupted teat of hope. It ain't good for you.

Meanwhile, 'if the older liberals...' what? If they what? It don't matter, man. We knew Kennedy was gonna retire for months, you silly gooses just convinced yourselves otherwise.

It's that hope man, you really gotta wean yourself off. A little hit every now and then, sure. Believe that the defense can get a stop, or that the new netflix series can exceed expectations. But you gotta pinch it off before you get a stomach ache.

Here’s your hope hit: You only need to flip two.

Flip two? Two what? Two slits to the wrist to bleed out? Or are you smoking crack and think Jeff Flake is gonna protect a SCOTUS seat for liberals and then liberals are gonna win back the senate?

How? Both are ways to get more power to the side doing it.

In other fucking hilarious news, Dems (including Silly Schumer) are already claiming that Trump should 'wait until after the election' to appoint a new justice.

They can't even get AtM'd with dignity.

Its completely different. The public outrage would be deafening if the Democrats tried to seat additional justices. Playing the game is different than changing the rules of the game. 

If Kennedy wanted his seat filled by a liberal, he could have retired under Obama. Same for Ginsburg.

It is no different. Republicans stole a supreme court seat, court packing is just playing the same game Republicans are already playing.

 

We will need to do it fast. first order of business before the next democrat controlled senate with a democrat president is the president nominates nine SC justices for nine new seats on the SC. The senate immediately confirms them all. no hearings, just immediate direct action.

No, it is absolutely not. It was their Consitutational duty and they said screw it to get an advantage.

There is no Consitutational limit on the number of Justices and they have varied before. Sure it can set up it's own issue but so did refusing to allow Garland a fair procrss.

Once you want to game the system you cannot complain about its consequences. 

I do not think it will happen though.

Ah yes because that worked out perfectly with replacing Scalia's seat! Moron.

The American people would never stand for this. Most folks are moderates, and what you described is more than extremely fringe.

What the senate did with Merrick Garland's appointment was extremely fringe and yet whatever outrage that existed was not enough to prevent Trump's election.

Most people wouldn't care, just like most people didn't care about Garland. The right-wing noise machine will scream bloody murder. But they scream bloody murder no matter what a Democrat does, and then turn right around and cheer when a Republican does the same thing.

Flake, Collins, Murkowski and McCain. Call your senators Jace.

Doubtful McCain will ever make another vote from the Senate floor. And then there were three...

Jesus, you really are smoking crack.

Never touched the stuff, myself. I was never wealthy enough for a coke habit and heroin was a no-go. Opiods (pills, don't be trashy), man. That's the way to go. Just make everything nice and fluid, like you're under water. It's real quiet down there.

That makes the dynamic 50-49. And then there was one.  

As Fez said, Murkowski and Collins likely won’t vote for someone who is opposed to Roe v. Wade.

Oh don't be so short-sighted. This is also the end of rights for women, minorities and the LGBT community. Have your abortions now I guess.

Kennedy has managed to secure himself one hell of a legacy here. A list of horrific decisions this week and then letting Trump appoint his successor.

 

The only play for the Democrats now is to pack the courts. They've either got the balls to do it or they may as well stop pretending they are a political entity within the US.

How do the Democrats pack the Courts?
