    Yes, and getting sadder every day.

    Of local interest to me: There are protests planned for 6:00 PM at the state capitol building tonight, which is just a few blocks away from my office. There are still boarded-up windows all around, including the building right across the street from where I work, that have never been fixed since the George Floyd riots two years ago. I'll be getting the hell out of this city by 5:00. The mob will need a few hours to get liquored up and for darkness to set in before things get weird, I assume.

    And the Colorado Avalanche is playing what could be the final game of the Stanley Cup in Denver tonight also - we're up 3 to 1 and just need one more victory. The game starts at 6:00 PM also and Ball Arena holds 18,000 fans. I wonder what will happen when they all spill out into the city after the game.

    Don't want to minimize the importance of the SCOTUS decision with hockey talk, but I can't add anything about the escalating Republican tyranny that everyone isn't thinking already.

    moving out of the U.S. is looking like a better and better option. I'm a straight white male with no wife or children, so I SHOULD feel fine here, but the sheer amount of insanity going on is really making me want to move. Mid-term elections could be very scary

    Every one of those justices stated during their confirmation hearings that they will uphold RvW, it’s perfectly okay to lie during your job interviews?

    Anyway, there’s talk of congress codifying abortion rights into law, but couldn’t Supreme Court just throw it out by declaring it unconstitutional?

    I think the only way forward is probably impeach all 5 of the Justices who over turned the clock backwards…

    Anyway, I’m not expert in law, may just be dreaming…

    We said over and over again that the Supreme Court was on the line in 2016.

    There has been an mass exodus from blue to red states, but now, there'll probably be a mass exodus of red states to blue states.

    Maybe this will actually help make this nation more 'purple' and less blue and red? Hopefully dems will also be energized so that they won't lose so badly during the midterms and 2024... sigh...
    Fuck you!! You and your ilk are responsible for this.

    You that couldn't vote for Hillary Clinton and couldn't produce a single credible reason why. You sit this the fuck down because YOU are responsible for it.

    Yeah yeah… ok.

    Just read an NPR article, looks like these justices spoke very much like lawyers and covered their asses during their hearings… so probably won’t be able to impeach them.

    Hopefully this will finally energize the liberal base in them red states… if red states insist on getting redder… then perhaps Mario’s prophecy will come true and it’ll be the end of the United States.

    I guess the planets aligned for a reason… we can definitely expect the worst, but I also want everyone to still remember to somehow hope for the best. As long as we are still breathing, there’s always hope! At least I don’t personally believe God is on the republicans’ side.

    Now that I've seen a non-spoilered quote, I guess I'm not shocked that Billi's reaction is to parrot the Fox News/Newsmax/Epoch Times take.

    What I love is that in the very first stanza, he contradicted himself. How does one further the decision to the individual level if one removes the federal right to make that decision? That's maybe the most insane contradictory set of words I've read in my entire life.

    You do not get to have an individual level decision if the state is allowed to make that decision for you. How do you not get that? The constitutional right to abortion was literally the individual level right. And no, I won't be reading your response unless someone chooses to quote it without a spoiler, you anti-choice nazi-sympathizer.
