Question about adding more seats to the SCOTUS and potential Republican retaliation.

If the Dems say add 4 seats, not all 13 SCOTUS justices would hear every case, right? It would still be nine justices (selected from the 13) that would hear cases. Is that right?

So, if the Republicans get back into power and add another 10 justices, they would still be selected from the 23, and then the Dems would add 15 when they get back in.

Thus, even if there are like 857 justices on the SCOTUS, only a selection of them would hear cases and there would be no guarantee that the majority of the selection would be conservatives.

I would be okay with 150 justices (3 per state). That would make the court more representative of America.

My new thing. Relaxing sounds videos, and I may have found the best!

Is Joe sending Justice Roberts a message with his 90-day commission to study rebalancing the court?

The ACA will be heard and voted on by the SCOTUS by the time Biden's commission makes its recommendation. If SCOTUS rules that the ACA is unconstitutional, then Biden will ride the wave of anger and resentment which will expand the court.

Is Biden trying to tell Roberts that if you allow the ideologues to run amok, I have no choice but to expand the court. Democratic fence sitters like Joe Manchin will have to support expansion since his state will lose the Medicaid expansion.

West Virginiaís leaders opted to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) starting on January 1, 2014, providing coverage to low-income adults, most of whom have jobs but no option for employer-sponsored health insurance. The federal government paid the full cost for the expansion population for the first three years, but gradually reduced the funding split until reaching a 90/10 split in 2020, which will remain fixed in future years.

Under the expanded eligibility guidelines, adults age 19-64 are eligible for Medicaid with a household income up to 138 percent of the poverty level. Medicaid expansion significantly exceeded the 93,000 people that West Virginia had initially projected to enroll by 2020 under the expanded eligibility guidelines


Rasmussen has Trump at +1 nationally. LOL!

No. Not a state poll. A national poll. There's no way on earth that Trump has a 1% lead nationally. This is a bullshit poll designed to close the polling averages gap.


Would this drive your pets crazy?

KFC scented fire logs. With your house smelling like Chicken, I imagine your pets would all over you, right? Or, maybe I'm wrong.

KFC has brought back its fried chicken-scented 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog for a third year, and this time itís being sold exclusive at Walmart Inc.


The Obamas. Halloween at the Whitehouse.

I like watching videos from the before times.

A sitting president up for re-election in his final debate spent more time peddling conspiracy...

theories than talking about past accomplishments and plans for a second term. That's the surest sign of a losing candidate and a failed presidency.

His last, and only chance, is to cheat at the ballot box and hope the courts will intervene.

To put tonight's debate in football terms, Trump needed a big turnover and score

Unlike the Falcons in their Superbowl against the Pats, Joe Biden knows what to do with a big lead late in the game. Don't turn the ball over (make a huge gaffe). Keep possession of the ball and keep scoring. Don't give Trump any opportunity to get back into the game.

Chuck Todd does the work of his corporate bosses which is to ensure that govt remains dysfunctional

by normalizing the hyper-dysfunctional Republicans and brow-beating the Democrats into compromised positions that benefit Chuck's corporate masters.

Just watched a segment with David Plouffe and Michael Steele (the other Michael Steele) where Chuck went out of his way to give credibility to the Hunter Biden story. The age old, "man, Democrats need to have an answer for this", bullshit which does nothing more than give a widely discredited story a measure of credit. By responding, Biden adds even more credibility and now a totally fabricated story becomes a story.

Chuck's objective here is not to help Trump per se. His real objective is to slow Biden's election momentum which could lead to a complete Democratic party take over of the government. Chuck's bosses do not want the Democratic party in this position as it could hinder their business interests. So, they need to keep the failed Republican party afloat by any means necessary.
