Today's United States Supreme Court decisions may not seem perfect, but they are very good. The best measure of exactly how very good these rulings are can be found in Trump's brat-attack response:

https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2020/07/09/supreme-court-rule-trump-twitter-collins-sot-nr-vpx.cnn

The members of the brain-dead cult will , of course, view this in the context their profit Donald the Trump defines it. It's political, don't you know! But deep within the organic decay of Trump's brain, he recognizes that the two Justices he has appointed are not total lap dogs.

Trump's constant mental state is paranoia, which always leads to his claiming victimhood in his whiney outbursts. He fears what is coming, and will be unable to keep it from seeping into the general election contest. Democratic Party commercials. Lincoln Project commercials. Joe Biden in debates. Nightmares that are as haunting as any of LBJ's.

It with gurgle to the surface in Trump's stream of consciousness rambling when he speaks with reporters, the covidiots at his rallies, and his tweets. This is a good thing. Not perfect, but legally sound, and that is Trump's deepest fear.

Peace,
H2O Man

Does me good to interact with good friends. I'm feeling good about Trump's self-destruction, and am pleased that we all have the opportunity to participate in the flushing him from society.

My kids do not believe I'm smart enough to take care of myself, which I think is a giggle. So they take turns parent-sitting. I pull weeds and water the garden. One son collects barrels of rain water and hauls them to the garden. If there's not enough rain, he hauls it from the creek. I've also made it out to my pond twice this week. Days I'm too tired to, my son feeds the birds and fish.

I hope thing are well your way!

here all the time. I've always enjoyed doing house work, but the boys are doing the cooking, washing dishes, doing laundry, etc. My youngest daughter keeps stopping in with lots of groceries. My daughter in Boston calls me daily to "check up" on me, and keeps sending me presents in the mail. And as much as I've (almost) always liked outdoor work, my sons are doing everything and more. I am indeed lucky.

The boys have cleared a great spot for me to sit out at the pond, too. I've missed being out there daily. It's nice to have the many fish come to where we feed them. And the song birds are so beautiful!

I could get used to being pathetic! (grin)

one of boxings elite, all-time greats -- once said, "He came run, but he can't hide." Trump has skated for most of his life. But destiny is catcing up.

That's only the beginning of what I have to say. Plenty more to come.

I like your work on facebook. It makes me happy.

Doing my little tiny bit. Sometimes it feels rather overwhelming -- so my hat is off to the admins of the DU.

Now THAT is a hard job.

Isn't that something? He is a way worse human being. For deep under layer upon layer of pathology, Nixon had something of a good side. Maybe "side" is too big a word ....Nixon hada splattering of human decency. Trump has none.

just imagine him after today's slap in the face.
On the last day of the Supremes session they let him know that he is not above the law.
Yet again your faith in the institutions stands tall. The end is nigh!

He expected "loyalty" from the two justices he appointed, too. That makes it especially nice!

What's that I hear? Whining coming out over the transom of Barr's office door!
I imagine Barr sucking on his lapel while running his fingers through a shag carpet.

Love seeing a posting from you! Peace, love and souuuulll!

It is so good to see the USSC rejecting the positions that Trump's enablers -- especially his lawyers -- have taken.And certainly Barr has advocated taking the "he can do anything, and no one can stop him" position. It is not the only position Barr willingly has taken, but that's a topic for another day.

And I appreciate your kind words. I'm mighty happy to be here, too! Peace, love and soul to you, too!
