Hey Therese and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Pauly from Clifton:

From Jessica Winter in the New Yorker, "When Roe was decided, a married woman in the United States needed her husband’s permission to get a credit card, something that did not change until 1974. No state outlawed marital rape until 1975. No man was found liable for sexual harassment until 1977. Pregnancy was a fireable offense until 1978. Alito does not itemize forms of gender-based subjugation that persisted after Roe, many of which might be persuasively argued as “deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition.” Alito's argument is a slippery slope. Where the fuck do I live?

Listening to your break there I was thinking that "bodily autonomy" is a pretty good clincher. Choosing what happens inside your own body seems like a basic assumption that should apply to any free individual person.

@Pauly from Clifton: My grandmother wanted to buy a condo at the Jersey Shore. She was going to pay in cash. The realtor wouldn't proceed without an okay from her husband. This was in the late 1980s.

  9:47pm Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

For some reason I keep remembering you playing "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" right after the Kavanaugh hearings and feeling convinced that this was your tribute to Christine Blasey Ford (which of course I could be deeply wrong about), and thinking about how that moment led to what we're witnessing now.

In any case, thank you for your show.

The wealthy & the powerful will always have access to as much abortion as they will ever want. & - they will use it. & - we all know it.
So this isn't a Moral issue whatsoever.
Facts don't support that.
Facts like all the many conditions for which abortion is the only way of saving the mother's life. & so many more. You know them.
Obviously this is the Politics of Emotion - especially approaching a crucial Midterm Election. My hope there is they gigantically miscalculated ! & have wildly energized & unified their opposition.
It is propaganda in the Culture Wars.
It is War against the Poor & against Women.
Not unrelate to all of these :
It is desperate War against Democracy itself
- because the Majority is demonstrably & unequivocally & overwhelmingly in favor of Reproductive Rights. It's not close to being close. Don't be deceived about that.

Has been observed that it is easier for the RightWing to just fly the flag of some outrageous ideology - & get its followers in single file to the Polls. But being Liberal means literally to tolerate wider views. So tho we are a clear & significant Majority - it's harder to get us to the Polls & marking the same box. That's up to us.

Not using the term 'ProLife' is important I think - because it is a propaganda war. This is what the Gingrich-Rove was all about: killing off bipartisan civility & actually helping the nation whatsoever - & instead villifying the other other Party in the Press &tc. - whatever the cost to us all.
  10:35pm tim from washington:

Hi Therese and everyone. I love recent Marianne Faithfull. I missed the previous mic break. I’m 49 years old. This past year I’ve really been changing my thoughts about our country and society. I always thought that society moves forward and progresses albeit slowly with many bumps in the road. But with the reactionary turn from the left in regard to the nuances of free speech, the bald faced hypocrisy from the right, the return of war that could ignite nuclear war and now this impending stacked court overturn of Roe I think this is the shittiest I’ve ever seen it. So I’ve been thinking that society doesn’t progress . Now I’ve got to figure out how to sanely live within a retrograde state.

that's always how it goes.. so back to the point.. winners and losers are fine but it gets tricky when lots of ppl think those who won are not right.. this is not a sports game we're talking about
  11:19pm Dean:

Here I am, Mr. Courageous.

Address my point, which is that the Supreme Court has not infrequently overturned its own precedent. When the outcome is to your advantage, you celebrate it. When not, you whine. This strategy won't work for you nor for those of us, including me, who despise the outcome suggested by the leaked opinion.

  11:28pm Dean:

Ike, you're way smarter than that. Of course you can figure out my point.

The outcome of this supposed decision is legitimate in one respect: the Court decided it according to its protocols. It very well might not be logically or doctrinally legitimate. It might be a "bad" decision. But guess what? The arbiters of what is a bad decision are the Court (oops, that's a problem) and the legislature.

I'm only complaining--okay, whining--about how folks bitch that the Court is "political." That goes without saying.

The Court is precisely designed NOT to be democratic. Its purpose is precisely to overturn democratically decided laws and policies. This country is not 100% about "majority rules." The Court's job is to check stupid majoritarian policies and laws.

Maybe so - but you're accusing us of 'whining' about serial abuses of good will, fairness, honesty, transparency, democratic process & long long civil precedent. If, say - it were the other way around - & Republican candidates had won't the popular vote by millions - but lost the Elections - you reckon there'd be any - 'whining' ? Sir ? Or wouldd the Right be exhibiting perfect chivalry in the face of critical defeat - because 'Rules'...

  🎸 11:50pm Benoni:

@Dean. No, it is not the job of the Supreme Court or any Court in the US to "check stupid majoritarian policies." The Court should not act as a super legislature or replace the policy decisions of the states or federal government with policies it prefers. The Sup Ct took away a civil right based on what was an unbroken string of its own decisions. "Precedent on precedent" as one person previously put it. The Sup Ct's breaking of stare decisis without any newly arising justification will weaken the rule of law, and the legitimacy of its own court. If you still think that is a "win" then that's on you.

In fact - oceans & mountains of rhetorical abuse as a basic & fundamental modus operandi. Are we the 'whiners', Sir? Not, say, civility conceding Elections we've lost? Or have we literally stormed the Capitol to overthrow an Election - murdereing police & thtreatenting the lives of Senators? Strictly as a hypothetical, you understand...

  11:55pm Dean:

"Whining" is shorthand for complaining about political outcomes without offering corrections to those outcomes.

Sorry, Benoni, but you're simply wrong. The "super legislature" argument is not correct. The Supreme Court's job, since Marbury, is to overturn unconstitutional legislation and to overturn bad precedent. And I suspect we all celebrated when the Court did that in, say, Obergefell. Or no? Are you angry that the Court legalized same-sex marriage?

In Australia you have to vote, elections are always on a Saturday and there's loads of early voting options. You get a fine if you don't vote, but everybody does, because why wouldn't you? Vote order on the forms is drawn from a hat in each electorate so dumb votes are averaged. The sheer lack of active democracy in the USA quite baffling to us
