    Why are we contemplating a Biden Supreme Court nominee?

    • povi fransiska | April 1, 2021 at 12:52 AM | Reply

      Because we don’t want what happened to RBG to repeat itself

    • Tryna get Justice Stephens to retire now, reminding him that many tried to get Ginsberg to retire in Obama’s first term and RBG assured everyone that she understood the importance of keeping the seat.

    • Kennedy retiring and Dems want to court pack which is not the right answer either. SCOTUS needs more than 9 judges to keep it from being a corrupt political body. We have seen how Congress is NO longer for the people & remember SCOTUS is tenured for life so they are supposed to be less susceptible to coercion & corruption by one party over the other. Congress has failed the public & SCOTUS will too if the people are NOT the ones voting them in. Congress can increase the # of judges at anytime, but one party should NOT be the president choosing them.

    Why are liberals so obsessed with race?

      @SouthSide_ Chicago79 it’s easy to talk like that if you’ve never been at disadvantage of being black. Nobody is obsessed with race. We’re just obsessed with equality, the same right that white people have. The right to breath, to vote, to earn education. Is the most basic human thing and yet people like you still question it

      @SouthSide_ Chicago79YOU MEAN AN ANGLO MONOLINGUAL ENGLISH PERSON!! THAT IS AMERICAN FOR REPUBLICANS.

      @povi fransiska stop playing the game they want you to play povi. It makes you look weak. Don’t you remember what happened last summer when blm came here to Chicago? REAL black leaders kicked them out and told them not to come back. You know what you need? Is one of these older black men or women to spit the truth to you. THEY were disadvantaged, not you. Ya need to grow up and stop playin this “poor me” card.

    • @SouthSide_ Chicago79 Is that why they chanted ‘Jews will not replace us’?

    • @Freedom Bow-ner LOL good one

  4. Not to worry. Committed fully. Can not go back no matter what! Just paperwork. Needs to thorough.

    It’s not about qualifications, you have to have the right skin color! Democrats just call everything they don’t agree with racist, it used to have to do with judging someone by their skin color but Democrats just changed it to be anything they don’t agree with!

  6. Yes put them in the supreme court..YOU GO PRESIDENT BIDEN

  7. Thank you Biden for honouring women.

  8. A good start indeed.

    They don’t have to be a lawyer. How about some street smarts?
