What happens to Griswold v. Connecticut?

Does legal access to birth control also go back to the state legislatures?

Is this the great unwinding?

Loving v. Virginia?

Obergefell v. Hodges?

Lawrence v. Texas?

Will Smith attempts to justify himself.

And fails.

Are Virginia teachers and school boards about to have a much tougher time?

Seems like a vote for handing carte blanche to the forces of extreme harassment.

Did I imagine seeing a certain final Norm MacDonald video?

There have been a lot of click bait videos on YT purporting to be THE final video created by Norm MacDonald.

But I swear I watched one a few hours ago in which Norm's neck and face are so swollen from lymph node inflammation that his ability to speak clearly is being impaired by the disfigurement.

He is with his mom. They are seated next to each other. Norm opens the video by saying that the two of them are going to be "trading faces"-- an obvious reference to the condition his face is in.

Norm asks his mom some innocuous question, which she answers with an observation about how harsh and mean-spirited people can be toward celebrities. Somebody must've said something to Norm or about him which mom didn't care for.

Norm ends the video by chiding anyone who gives elderly widows from Ottawa the skunk eye.

It's a very short video, and now I can't seem to find it. Did I imagine it? Or has it been pulled?

If detention conditions at the border are bad

shouldn't this be freely shown and discussed? Seems like it could be used to shame self-righteous Republicans into spending the money necessary to fund immediate improvements.

Always answer "border crisis" questions this way.

These asylum seekers are fleeing countries which have been flooded with guns and ammunition originating in the USA.

Our value system here in the USA places a high priority on the abundance of guns and ammunition.

The consequence of such abundance of arms is rampant violence and criminality throughout our hemisphere for which we must bear the blame.

When populations flee the threat of violence in their own countries due to a problem we have created, we have a moral obligation to grant them asylum.

It is the cost of freedom, and a cost which we as a nation have bargained for.

The 1776 Commission Report reads like you would expect.

Based upon whom Trump appointed to his 1776 Commission, the report which they issued today reads like a guide to the American conservative mind.

I don't think it necessarily needs to be deleted and forgotten.

Perhaps just properly disclaimed as the narrow point of view of the people who authored it, and not as some official perspective of the United States government.

One thing his supporters and detractors can finally agree on.

The country did not deserve Donald Trump.

Real Clear Politics: Biden/Harris 243 - Trump/Pence 214

They just grudgingly gave Michigan to Biden.

(I don't actually know if it was grudging. Maybe it's just caution. But their updates sure lag the AP.)
