    Dear Clarence,
    Republicans hated Roe so much and “couldn’t live with it” so they spent 50 years inventing “textualism” to justify stripping rights for people. And created the Federalist Society to ensure it would eventually happen.

    Hmmm….it’s usually 3 Dems (Chamath, Jcal, Frienerg) vs Sacks (R). They lampoon him pretty regularly.

    But fair enough - FWIW he’s not talking at all, Chamath getting them to explain how the judges misled Congress in their testimony right now

    I never hear any pushback from them when he spouts off ridiculous shit. And Sacks whines incessantly so I gave up. It started out really good with fun tech and market info and has slowly morphed into full on right wing discourse for 2 hours. Anyways I won’t stuff up this thread with podcast nonsense

    I love that no commentary on this issue discusses that “pro life” people have sex before they’re ready to have a kid and if there’s a pregnancy they absolutely would get/push for their partner to get an abortion. We all know it happens but it’s never discussed.
