Supreme Court Term 21-22

This term is crazy.  We are more likely than not to see them:

1. Overturn Roe.

2. Outlaw any kind of licensure for guns.

3. Put a person to death, their Catholicism be damned, all the while doubling down on police power.

 

They've already let people put bounties on women who don't want to be declared, under the law, sentient uteri.  But that's just an adorable warm-up.

 

This is what happens when Mitch McConnell gets his way.  Americans, by double-digit numbers, are against ANY of the above being declared law.  But here we are.  A bunch of judges who answer for about 35% of the country will continue to delay our rights, thanks to the electoral college, the senate, and other 18th century atrocities.  Yay.

“The unborn” are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus, but actually dislike people who breathe. Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.”

And the SC completely delegitimized itself. It's just another political tool.

What started with Citizens United has now been completed and yes, McConnell, take a bow as the ringmaster who brought it to its conclusion.

We are so fucked.
