    "Flipped?" From what to what?

    The two justices Trump has put on the Court to date replaced justices appointed by Reagan.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        The Dump presidency is illegitimate. All three of those seats should be liberal, not conservative.

            Here is the poster child for "The Institutions are holding. Nothing to worry about. Everybody calm down."

            Yeah, that's working out well. 200,000 families and counting.

            • How many seats will the GOP add when they retake the WH and Senate a handful of years from now?
              *Of course, this is assuming Democrats overcome some still decently high odds to retake the Senate in the first place.

                Depends on if the media changes or not. As long as the media operates the way they do now then the constant cycle of giving back power to the Orcs will continue. Breaking the cycle means fixing the media.

                  There's a funny political cartoon I saw recently where the Supreme Court of the future opens it's session, and there are hundreds of justices seated.

                    Source? Those "decently high odds" are currently 69% in favor.

                      Ah. I thought it was 60/40 Democrats, but I haven’t looked in like a week or two. I like 69/31 better. So, assume we retake the Senate. What’s the endgame? Are we not in agreement that it’s inevitable the GOP will regain a trifecta themselves in the future? Maybe the reasoning is that it will be so far down the road that all of the policies passed in the meantime will be here to stay anyways?

                      • It wont even have to be that long. In 2016 every GOP voter wanted ObamaCare repealed...until in 2018 it almost happened and the people realized what that actually meant. (they were screwed) Then a Pandemic hit and it got even worse...

                        It is time for the Dems to be Santa Claus again. Start giving things back to the people. Make the GOP actively have to take it back if they get power and watch the backlash. The amount of voting reforms alone should be a step in the right direction. I dont see even the 6-3 Handmaid's Tale Court striking down legit election reforms if they dont run afoul of the Constitution. (like say election Day Holiday, registration reforms...etc.)

                          The end game is to do what you can while you can, and worry about the GOP later. Those are the rules the GOP plays by, so the Dems better play by the same rules or they'll get run roughshod over for eternity.

                          Funny how no one asks the GOP what the end game is by ramming through ACB or not even holding a vote on Garland or doing literally nothing to hold Trump accountable. It's just accepted that they get to do whatever they want. But woe to the Dems that want to fight back.

                              I'd read people insisting - incorrectly - that the Regeneron treatment wasn't actually from aborted fetal cells. They used Jeb2020-level cognitive gymnastics to argue that fact (but then many of them refuse the MMR vaccine because it was original derived from fetal cells, decades ago).


                              There is no consistency in partisan politics.

                                The Christian Right being deeply hypocritical opportunists without an ounce of sincere spiritual feeling is very consistent.

                                The Thumpers are just another righty con. They have as much to do with god as the Club for Growth has to do with economics. They are a fig leaf to hide a fist of sheer cynical power politics.
