Re: AOC = Liberal Goddess

I'd make the bet that she doesn't only make a 2nd term, but at least a 3rd (and probably more). AOC only has to remain popular in the district she represents, but she's still a darling in the Democratic Party. Even with Pelosi's surge in ratings after she bitch-slapped Trump, AOC still has higher a...

Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

Changing the term limits is very different than changing the number of people on the court. If there's enough bipartisan support to increase the # of judges, then ok. The only way they differ is that one takes a Constitutional change while the other takes a simpler legislative change. But ultimatel...

If you want to change the term limits of a justice, then do it. How is this statement any different than: If you want to change the amount of justices, then do it. They're both perfectly acceptable ways to an end if the People want. You seem to think government should be perfect. We're a very diver...

Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

But to amend something just so you can get an ideological majority on the bench isn't very democratic. So if the People vote enough progressive Congressman to enact progressive laws, do you think it's democratic that five conservative judges are able to hold back those laws? Personally I think it's...

Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

Am I being unclear? "No one is saying it'll be done through an emergency declaration." It will need Congress to change the law. Nothing in the article - or what the candidates said - states it'll be done through a declaration. It's a rallying cause and likely change if the Democrats win b...

Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

It's stacking the bench. It's also pandering to the idiot voters that don't understand that. Is stacking the bench unconstitutional? The law on the books limits the SCOTUS to nine, but that can be changed with enough Senators (and Reps). Otherwise, no one is saying it'll be done through an emergenc...

Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

So, someone want to explain to me how using emergency declaration to do what congress won't let you do is an abuse of power, but expanding the SCOTUS because you don't like the judges isn't? Did you read the article? They don't want to do it with an "emergency declaration." If Democrats h...

I'll go further and say that I wouldn't be surprised if countries like China, Russia and NorKor aren't sharing intel, ESPECIALLY emails from the SoS. I'll bet you Russia, if they weren't given anything by the Chinese, they've hacked it. Russian hackers are the real deal. They are prime time and the...
