Huh, I thought the citizenship question was to help the DOJ enforce the Voting Rights Act.

"If workers 'consent' to forced arbitration, it is the consent of jus primae noctis. It is the consent of a conquered nation that . . . agrees to be ruled by a foreign king. It is the consent of a man who agrees to give up his wallet at gunpoint."

Seems bad that all five of the Supreme Court's Republicans don't know what the word "consent" means.

I was in the courtroom when it was handed down and I thought it was a disaster. I had no idea that people were celebrating until I walked back into the office and was unexpectedly hugged by my boss.

You might be shocked to learn that Brett Kavanaugh has no idea what the word "consent" means.

C'mon Greg! Where are you going to find five votes on this Supreme Court who will support such a claim?

If Chief Justice Roberts thinks his job is to preserve the Supreme Court as an institution that is perceived as being above politics, then he is fucking awful at his job.

Trump thinks the Supreme Court is his personal goon squad. Blame Chief Justice Roberts.

I see that, while I was distracted writing about the last evil that the Supreme Court did, they went and did another evil. I know asking this Court not to be evil is too much to ask. But could they at least space out their evil fast enough that the rest of us can process it?

I blame a constitutional system that prevented an adequate regulatory regime from developing to protect renewable-but-also-depletable resources.

Here's a fun fact that should know: still has almost twice as many Twitter followers as Trump. Also, Obama actually won his elections.

Go read on how readily the Republican members of the Supreme Court will cast aside what they claim to believe in if doing so offers a modest electoral advantage to Republicans.
