    Susan Collins Called 911 Over A Chalk Drawing Asking Her To "Please" Support Abortion Rights

    I bet she'll retire after this term. She's getting up there in age.

    Susan Collins Called 911 Over A Chalk Drawing Asking Her To "Please" Support Abortion Rights

    Yes, she is. Maine is purple. She tries to serve all Mainers. But people forget, she is a REPUBLICAN. "Moderate" doesn't mean Democrat, it means middle--often compromise. She knows what Repubs will sign and if she likes an idea she'll introduce something palatable to get 60 votes.

    Susan Collins Called 911 Over A Chalk Drawing Asking Her To "Please" Support Abortion Rights

    They put her through hell before the Kavanaugh vote. It may be a bit of PTSD, but I can understand her being nervous. First salvo, that kind of thing. She's trying to come up with a compromise that Republicans will vote for to save abortion rights. I don't know about details, so I hope it's...

    Cawthorn addresses video released by opposition group showing him naked in bed 'being crass'

    He was playing a game on a cruise! You think he's a cross dresser because of that? I mean, I'm glad he doesn't think anything of it, of course not. I don't know who's running the oppo research on him, but they're being real skunks about it.

    Cawthorn addresses video released by opposition group showing him naked in bed 'being crass'

    I'm beginning to wonder if this young man is too immature to be making national decisions of importance. But if they were both old pics/vids, maybe he already has grown up. Except for when he was showing off karate chopping trees. And was there something about a gun hidden in his...

    Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

    Yeah, the great secrecy thing is weird. I suppose it might be fair to let someone look at work in progress, but WHY? Do you believe in pressuring the Court?

    Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

    I'm not sure that's an idea that will catch on with the majority, Luce; most of us have all we can do to digest the final.

    Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

    No, they explain it in full in their final decisions.

    Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

    'We' don't interpret the law, Luce. That's the Court's job.

    Democrats raise more than $7 million in hours after leak of draft Supreme Court abortion opinion

    I agree with this. I don't think overturning Roe will change the midterms, for all the reasons they cited.

    Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

    I don't mind at all that we don't get their drafts and working papers. This certainly shows what a partisan feeding frenzy it becomes when they're leaked.

    Chief Justice Roberts responds to leaked Supreme Court draft opinion

    It was due out well before the midterms, anyway. I think it was an attempt to influence the court's decision, which isn't going to happen, is it?

    [W: #41] Supreme Court leak represents unprecedented break in confidentiality. Should Action be Taken Against the Perpetrator(s)?

    It's writing the decisions, isn't it, that require work and time? If you've ever read them, they can be long, full of citations to other decisions, and basically, complicated. They can run over 100 pages. Plus, besides the ruling decision, each of the justices has the opportunity to write a...

    Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

    Why does "everyone" get to decide if I have a baby?

    Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

    Utter bullshit. This is Naomi at 25 weeks. She weighed less than one pound and her chances of survival were slim to none. She miraculously survived. But the point is, that is 25 weeks. 15 weeks is not 'viable.'...
