That’s why we have the Ninth Amendment, to protect all our unenumerated rights.
Where does it say you can’t have an abortion?
Is it a Bumper Sticker?
When did “We the People” become “Those People”?
We the People now refers only to Real Americans, and does not include Those People.
Ramirez and other Trump Disciples hate democracy.
So basically today’s supreme court is giving the constitution an F minus!
And that’s why since it was written, people have praised the US Constitution for its flexibility in being able to adapt with the passing of time. Until today’s GOP decided they wanted to drive people back to the Dark Ages with their interpretation of it. American democracy destroyed.
And remember, only white male landowners over the age of 21 can vote, Negr0es count as 3/5 of a person, Women & Brown people have no rights at all.
I noticed you didn’t include the decision permitting interracial marriage. Is there a reason for that?
Same crap as muslims. A bunch of appointed “scholars”, call them Scotus or Ulema, are given the power to make interpretation of a “holy text”. Well, at least, for the constitution, Americans admit it was written by humans and not dictated by god but the result is the same bullcrap where, along the years, the can come out with different meaning for the same words and no one complains that these frauds can just make up anything they want as they are just serving their agenda and following the orders of those who put them in this position.
It is a living document, it needs fresh air to survive.
Thankfully you’re wrong, Odon.
^ ALWAYS wrong! And, despite the name, never funny.
Behold: Ramirez acknowledges that SCOTUS boldly tramples precedents where no court has trampled them before. More’s the pity for the non-right wing SCOTUS moiety.
I imagine Mr. Ramirez would prefer Leviticus to the Constitution!!
Opening the door for SCORP (Supreme Court of the Republican Party) to overturn Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.
The Constitution was a contract written in plain English and approved by the people. Altering the plain text of a contract without permission of the signatories is unlawful. The liberal project of a “living Constitution” has been adding rights to our Constitution for quite awhile. Deliberately misconstruing the plain text and meaning of the Constitution is dishonest. It’s about time the unethical process was stopped and corrected.
Important to understand when this document was written it didn’t apply to everyone such as Blacks and the “merciless savage Indians” it describes.
The PERFECT is the enemy of the GOOD! To hate America because it is not PERFECT is not very smart!
only freeholders were allowed to vote that means everybody in an apartment can’t vote they aren’t property owners
Nowhere. So what is your complaint?
Current SCOTUS is a disgrace
Love this one, all those passed by Democrats.
What judicial fiat giveth, judicial fiat can taketh away.
OK; this is my last word about the topic today. Whenever anyone tries to give Government more power, you are not just giving that power to the people of today, but to every generation that comes along. So we have to take responsibility for that power. Thing is that is hard cause we live too long. So take a look at Roe, it was growing, people wanted to cut it back, then Clinton said safe, legal, and rare. A great example of media saving an issue if there ever was one. Then you all wanted abortion up to the last day of labor and wanted to give money to countries overseas for abortion.
Now the left is wondering why this happened. Same for guns, same for money, same for stock bounds, and natural resources. Mess around someone bigger will come along and spank you. End of story. To be honest, as pro-gun as I am, the only reason it hasn’t happened here in the U.S. is we see governments harming their people in Cuba, Venezuela, Mexico, and now Canada to a lesser extent. They see guns as a good thing in Ukraine. So people in this country are a long way from giving up their guns.
Abortions wasn’t mentioned in The Declaration of Independence, or The Constitution – because they were common practice. Theology forms itself into Fascism. Regardless of our Freedom of association, I don’t want your religion rubbing off on me. Go away.
Wolf vs CO? Wow that anyone would mention that. Frankfurter insisted it didn’t apply the Fourth against the states when Mapp vs OH applied the exclusionary rule with it. The Nixon-Burger Court then perverted the exclusionary rule to the point of coddling crooked cops and insulting the honest ones in Il vs Krull. Should I even mention UT vs Strieff?
For the first time ever rights were taken away from people. Oh, right, it’s just women, to the GOP they aren’t people. Next will be women’s right to vote, right?
The amount of damage the democrats are doing to our economy is staggering, especially because they control the 3 major levers of gov’t. This shows why they should never be given power like this, ever again.The S&P 500 fell by 0.9% on Thursday to reach 3,785.38, ending the first half of 2022 lower by 20.6% for its worst start to a year since 1970. The Dow ended Thursday’s session at 30,775.43, dropping 15.3% for the year-to-date for its worst first half since 1962. And the Nasdaq’s 29.5% drop so far in 2022 marked its worst first half on record.
Knowing where Mr Ramirez usually comes from, I have to parse this somewhat enigmatic image as a sneer at “liberal” hypocrisy, yes?
Don’t forget the Loving v. Virginia. Thomas is hoping for that one so he can overturn it and get rid of Ginni.
M R makes a valid point (rare for him) that some precedents deserve to be overturned.One can’t help wondering where he would have been of dred Scott or Plessy. Maybe this is unfair since ya can’t prove a negative.However, those decisions were on the side of (for better or worse MORE freedom while SCOTUS ’22 has ruled (for better or otherwise) for LESS freedom (or for destroying the planet – but MORE freedom for corporations to do just that!)
The Constitution doesn’t mention cars, big rigs, trains, and airplanes, so the federal government shouldn’t regulate them, right? Ditto nuclear power plants. And fracking. And drilling for oil. But it does mention the right to bear arms, so states can’t regulate them (because the definition of “arms” is It Depends.) Doesn’t mention women, either. Or babies. Or IVF. Or tobacco. Or alcohol. Or Marijuana. Or…
Welcome to the Party of Stupid.
