The fuck? People are weird as hell
I hope there's a clip of the democrats laughing wildly at mitch's demand. But alas, I'm sure they'll just bend over and do it.
They’ve probably already done it while I’m typing this.
Too soon, Mitch! Let’s not politicize this tragedy immediately.
“the place sounds like it’s imploding.”
Is tomorrow the big day where we finally seal the end of this project we call America?
Why are we guessing tomorrow?
Ginni’s husbands ticker, midterm volatility, better now than later, why the hell not I guess.
It was supposed to drop yesterday, so who knows.
they randomly delayed the 1/6 hearings for tomorrow. kinda seems like there is something big happening is the thought
There are two threads I hate to see bumped: this one and mass shooting.
LFG! NO RIGHTS BABY!
With Monday being a holiday and the week after being the last of the term I’d expect the Roe ruling to formally come down that last week of the month so the court can run and hide immediately after, hoping people calm down.
You're not wrong but that's such a coward's way out. If your decision is that bad that you have to run and hide so people can calm down then maybe it's the wrong decision.
Like they care about right and wrong.
They know their decision is wrong and they plan on running and hiding. They're cowards.
Give the justices guns, so good guys have guns
They should only have one door to their homes.
They should have an armed Judicial “Resource Officer” in their homes at all times.
They should practice active shooter drills with their families every week.
If it’s good enough for our kids, it’s good enough for the Supreme Court Justices!
One too many fingers extended
if there was actually a modicum of an influential leftist movement in this country, they all would be too scared uhhh i mean tired to step out of hiding for the rest of their lives
those flowers better be sitting in peepee
Not enough piss being blasted onto the marker either.
Need a pin so I know where to take a shit
Government funding religious schools seems bad.
Congress passing bill to ramp up security at SC justice graves in 3, 2, 1…
But sure, let's fund schools that ban students from same sex households and that teach that LGBTQ is a sin. Yea, let's fund those hateful fucks.
It's more nuanced than that.
Is it? I've just seen summaries of the case so please add what I'm missing.
Parents who choose to send their kids to those schools can get tuition assistance, yes.
Seems logically like that would require those schools receiving public funding would then not be allowed to discriminate, but we all know that's not going to happen.
and where the state has declined or is unable to provide a public school
Addressing the emphasis on "government neutrality" in a dissent by Justice Stephen Breyer, Roberts wrote that "there is nothing neutral about Maine's program."
"The state" he said, "pays for tuition for certain students at private schools -- so long as they are not religious."
"That is discrimination against religion," Roberts said.
"Maine's administration of that benefit is subject to the free exercise principles governing any such public benefit program — including the prohibition on denying the benefit based on a recipient's religious exercise."
So fuck this ruling imo
Don't understand why this needed a new opinion anyway, and didn't fit under that Trinity Lutheran decision a few years back. Seems like the same principle.
That wasn't the nuance. The nuance is that they don't have to provide any assistance if they're not given assistance to other private schools. It's just if you are giving assistant to students of secular private schools, you're going to have to for religious as well. Seems like a pretty easy solution is to not fund private education at all.
We should separate church and state, imo.
So how is this Maine tuition assistance thing different from here in VA tuition assistance grant that, as far as I'm aware, can go to any college in the state?
buddy you’re lucky this Court continues to incorporate the establishment clause against the states
I think if someone is given assistance for private school tuition they should be able to choose which school to use it on.
I would also guess some people use government assistance to donate to their church, whether directly (funds from a stimulus) or indirectly (money saved from food vouchers). While I do not agree with that choice, it is still their choice.
Another choice I would not agree with is someone using assistance to buy drugs and alcohol, or big screen TVs, or some other luxury, but it is still their choice.
Of course they'll continue to incorporate it. They can use it to discriminate against non-Christian faiths then legal babble their way around not applying it to Christianity anyway
