Lagoa is from Florida to boot.

Listened to Trump on Fox and Friends this morning and he stated were down to 5 finalists. He didn't deny Barrett and Lagoa were 2. He was asked who the other 3 were, wouldn't say, but later mentioned were considering 1 who was 38 years old. That would mean Rushing (from North Carolina) is one of the finalists.

I still say its Barrett. If Lagoa gets it, I think it will be because Latina and Florida..

Trump was asked when he would announce the nominee, and he said on Friday or Saturday (RGB's services are Thur or Fri, and he won't announce until after that).

It really doesn't matter for the long term. There is a chance the Republicans will hang onto their share of power this time because the COVID-19 thing creates all the uncertainty associated with voting by mail. But it won't be long in historical terms before the Democrats control everything. And they are not going to tolerate a conservative Supreme Court. All the Republicans are doing right now is pissing off a majority of the population that doesn't like them to begin with. They may get away with it in the short term. But the long term looks very bad for them.

Oh, and if this Court does overturn Roe vs. Wade under these circumstances it will be REALLY bad for the Republicans. You're talking about something the People of the United States don't want by a 2:1 margin. And everybody can see what the Republicans did to get to this point. They're slitting their own throats.

Yes, because over the 230+ years of American history, we have fallen back onto sustained, one-party rule, so many, many times, that of course it makes sense that there will be one major party going forward, as you have repeated over and over again. By the way, that was sarcasm (the history part, not you droning on multiple times). We have never had single party rule for more than a few years in this country's history (even the Democratic Republicans in the early 1800's broke apart quickly into the Jeffersonian Democrats vs the Jacksonian Democrats). Safe to say, we will always have a political duopoly. They can change names, but there will always be a duopoly. I have 230+ years of history that pretty much say you're crazy. But we already knew that. :coffee:

As for the nominee, I'm fine with Barrett. She's intelligent and has some verve, so I like that in my SCOTUS justices. A little on the young side, but I understand why they'd do that as well.

Hilarious, given the number of people who are taking the red pill on a daily basis. While you base your theory on demographics, I’ll base mine on intelligence. People are beginning to see what the Dem party is all about and it ain’t pretty. People are beginning (slowly) to wise up. Even brown and black people. So you might just wanna slow your roll on the whole “dems control everything” drivel.

I didn't say there will be necessarily be sustained one party rule. I said the Republican Party is in trouble. And, frankly, I don't see how you can argue with the math involved with that. I think the Democrats are indeed going to reach a point where they can negate all of the Republican effort to craft a conservative Supreme Court majority. Will another Party arise to challenge? Maybe.

Also: The fact that we have never had sustained one party rule in this country before does not mean it will not happen in the future. We have never had this situation. We have a situation in which there is a clear dichotomy based on ethnicity. And it's been in place for something like 40 years at least. Non Whites clearly favor Democrats by an overwhelming margin. It may be somewhat less overwhelming in some years than in others. But it is always overwhelming. That, to me, is a far more valid basis for predicting where we are going than "We have never had single party rule for more than a few years in this country's history" is.

The problem is that there is absolutely nothing to indicate that what you are thinking is happening is true. In fact, the available data clearly suggest that a substantial majority of the most intelligent among us favor the Democrats. Also, there is no suggestion that Black and Brown people are moving towards the Republican side. It's not happening.

Agree.

She is a better selection than Lagoa just from a case history standpoint. Give Lagoa a few more years of doing casework and I think she could also be a good future pick.


Not directed at you GF, but for Roe vs. Wade, it should be overturned just from a violation of the 10th amendment standpoint. If a state wants to put restrictions (or none) on an abortion that is up to the states.

Come up out of the numbers once and awhile for a breath of fresh air and you might find that numbers only tell part of the story.

I'll just use the results of the YouGov poll because it has lots of cross tabs that come out every week Here are some Trump vs. Biden voting preferences:

People with Bachelors degrees: Biden 45%, Trump 38%
People with Graduate degrees: Biden 58%, Trump 30%
Blacks, Biden 78%, Trump 2%
Hispanic, Biden 61%, Trump 24%

It is what it is. If you believe otherwise, you are kidding yourself. If only the "cognitive elite" as defined by Hernstein and Murray could vote, Trump would have no chance. Also, if only non Whites could vote, Trump would have no chance.

What gives him a chance is overwhelming support among misguided White people without college degrees.That's his base.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Re: Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS

The donks are going to attempt to smear a female, a Catholic, and a mother of 7 (2 adopted from Africa). Get ready for someone to come out with unsubstantiated, uncorroborated, 30+ year old allegations, where they can’t remember the where or when, that Barret tortured animals, abused children, cheated, lied, stole, slept around etc, etc. Similar to what they did to Clarence Thomas with Anita Hill, and Kavanaugh with that Ballsy Ford woman.

The democrat allegations that we’ll hear in the coming weeks that Barrett (insert donk smears here) are complete bullshit & total lies.

They can't stop her from getting on the Court but all they need to do to win politically is point out that she is a threat to overturn Roe vs. Wade. The American People don't want that right now. I don' t think this is going to be a political winner for the Republicans.

I don't know if they'll pay the full cost this time because of all the crap caused by COVID-19. But overturning Roe vs. Wade is not a popular thing right now.
