Henceforth, I'll be referring to him as dick face.
This to me seems like yet another chess move in the long con that is the Republican party. Realize that while we've been thinking about fighting the battles, they've been fighting the war.
With putting Kavanaugh on the supreme court they ensure their power is locked in.
How? The supreme court doesn't have to take a case. They take simple polls to decide which cases are point on the docket and which ones they decide to not rule on.
Now with a conservative majority on the court do you think a case regarding Gerrymandering is going to be taken up? Especially one that might cause a Republican held state to redistrict in a way that might allow an independent/Democrat any wiggle room? We both know this answer.
Let's be clear, this new court is has a clear mandate, given to it by it's republican masters.
1. Row v. Wade.
3. Chevron deference.
I know that last one is a bit obscure, but trust me you care about it.
In a nutshell, the EPA is allowed to write it's own rules. Imagine a situation where whenever the EPA wanted to ban a particular class of chemicals it first needed to go in front of a court. That's what elimnating chevron deference would do. Just imagine how that would gum up the works for the EPA / BLM / etc.
As to the first one on that list we all know how that would go. Needless to say, a number of women greater than zero is going to die from lack of access to cancer screenings and back alley abortions.
I've written this before but I believe that my child and grand children will have less access to reproductive healthcare than their mother and grandmother.
I can only gawk at this horrifying situation and ask a simple question.
There's clearly a demographic of people who are rabidly anti-abortion. How willing will they be to sacrifice their daughters, sisters and mothers? I have this weird sense that when it gets down to the brass tacks they'll talk the talk but quietly go to Canada to get their fifteen year old daughter and abortion.
I threw in that last sentence because the other leg their standing on is a rather unworkable and known to be patently unworkable sex ed. curriculum of abstinence only.
Let's be clear, as long as their has been teenagers, their have been teenagers having sex. Only now they'll be doing it completely uneducated to the risks and have no options.
I'm sure the next thing on the chopping block will be all the services these young mothers will need to take care of their unintended children...
We are living in the worst possible timeline.
