  1. This is a great argument for term limits.

    where was he when his buddies implemented the patriot act?


  3. What about seat belt laws? What about helmet laws? These were brought on to save insurance companies money with saving lives as secondary game. How many more lives to be saved by such a simple action like wearing a mask not to mention the Savings in healthcare dollars or buffering the economical impact.

  4. Ari Melber is on point, as usual, and Alito is a political hack as always.

    how is free speech being harmed by COVID restrictions? btw: people who die from COVID have no speech.

  6. Do you mean, like the right to decide what to do your body or who to love?

  7. It is shameful that such a partisan character ever made it to the supreme court.

    He makes Cavanagh look like an angel.

  8. It bothers me, how easily organized religion can take issues of our society and turn them into assaults on their religious rights. Seems like they’re desperate to be the victim.

    • @A Writer I’m sorry, but that doesn’t answer the question at all as I agree everyone has the same rights. So you have freedom of religion as much as I do, but what does that entail?

    • @Metroid 1402 The right to form and practice the religion of their choice.

    • @4336aaa Thanks for the response! So if their beliefs are discriminatory and bigoted, should they be able to practice those parts?

    • @Metroid 1402 Generally speaking, I would say yes. But I would not like to be on the receiving end of those beliefs. and I would hope they were sensitive enough to know that not everybody practices their beliefs.

    • @4336aaa I totally get that, and I appreciate the sincere response!

  9. Ask Alito if I can smoke in his office. It’s my right to choose to take that cancer risk.

  10. Republicans are outstanding at going backwards.

  11. Astonishingly poor judgment from a U.S. Supreme Court justice.

  12. If he’s so concerned about giving up freedoms, where was Supreme Court when during 9/11 Bush introduced a wholesale onslaught on privacy and rights ?

    • @Str8 Street if masks are unconstitutional but for people’s safety, why aren’t people getting in line to do that? If Supreme Court thinks they should limit the things he spoke of in his speech then limit them all. It’s either right or it’s wrong. Don’t just pick and choose what you want to limit if the concept is the same for all.

    • @Robert Rodgers yeah let’s characterize one group of people as being the ones with basic human characteristics. That’s not hypocritical in itself…

    • @D B maybe it’s a little bit of the fact that these institutional changes are being made in the matter of 6 months, and by regulation not the passage of law.

    • ohyeshttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8

    • @D B The Supreme Court does not legislate closing your eyes to these things does not mean they need to change them not their position, when & if these things do come before them they will rule according to Constitutional Law, not political ideology. The Constitution does not allow the government to rule our health or what we wear it does not matter what the reason is, We The People consent to be governed by just men it’s not mandated by the government when they become unjust in their rulings We The People do not have to consent. Laws are legislated not mandated like these governors and mayors are doing, they get passed in the House then the Senate than the President sign it into law nationally, or the Governor for state law none of that has happened with masks or any pandemic responses.

  13. Think about the greater good. It’s a national pandemic one off, that had there been a national response we would be done with by now.

  14. We need to pack the SCOTUS so there can be progress and we don’t go back to “Jesus times,” when the world was Savage beyond belief. CHURCH AND STATE NEED TO BE SOCIALLY DISTANCED!!!!

    Uh, first amendment? Why is he asserting his religious rules from office? Stick to the constitution when judging please.

  16. This fool says: ” We don’t want Covid restrictions after the Pandemic has passed”..!!! .No Sheet, Sherlock…!!!…What is he smoking???

  17. Alito’s vocal timing made him sound like Hanity…. unnerving whatever discussed… strange

  18. Alito, 1956:
    “You can’t say that white children and black children should go to segregated schools. Until recently, that’s what the vast majority of Americans thought. Now, it’s considered bigotry.”

    We don’t want HIM to be a permanent feature. Term limits for all. Especially SCOTUS.

      Your suggestion would be in violation of the US Constitution.

    • @T. R. Campbell change the constitution then, FFS

      @Bobby Sox Support and defend the Constitution. People risk their lives on the water or crossing deserts to come to the United States for the guarantees that are given to us by the founders as articulated in the US Constitution. If you study the constitution and the intent of the founders by reading their writings and their thought process, every word contained within the constitution was put there for a reason. The founders were wordsmiths. Everything in the constitution is there to protect citizens from the government. Don’t change it.

    • @T. R. Campbell so why do amendments exist?

    • T. R. Campbell | November 13, 2020 at 9:42 PM | Reply

      @Bobby Sox The founders included the opportunity to amend the US Constitution to address a pressing need. Some of the recent amendments to address a pressing need include the 26th, 24, 22, 21, 19th and others. The amendment process is very complex, difficult, and time-consuming which the founders implied was necessary to prevent the constitution from being subjected to knee-jerk reactions. The complexity is intended to give rational people time to think.
      The founders argued extensively about guarantees that should be included in the constitution. One set included the “right to travel “between the states. Some argued that this was necessary but others prevailed stating that the right to travel was implied and it was such a basic rights similar to breathing and eating.
      Were you aware that the federal government has supremacy over all post roads? This fact then begs the question, why do the people allow each state to regulate travel on Post roads by issuing drivers licenses?
      Protect, defend and cherish the constitution because it is a document that protects people from government. We must remember that the founders were subjects of an oppressive government in the form of a monarchy. In order to understand the dangers that the founders were in when they signed the document you should study what happened to each of the founders, their families and property after the penned their name to the US Constitution.

    Alito: “I want people to be able to burn down their neighbor’s house, because they should have the freedom to hurt others and destroy their property.”
    That applies to all of his anti-American points spoken at that most anti-American of organizations, “The Federalist Society”.
