In honor of the Supreme Court’s apparent refusal to accept a law not specifically referred to in the Constitution, thereby also concluding that precedent is meaningless, I humbly suggest they also roll us back to 1787 by ending:

  • Women’s right to vote
  • Right to purchase contraceptives
  • Gay marriage
  • Right of Black people to be recognized as citizens (and therefore, human)
  • Right to marry whom you want, regardless of their color or nationality

And let’s take it a little further. The Constitution and Bill of Rights also do not refer specifically to:

  • Women’s right to own property
  • Women’s right to not BE property
  • Child labor laws, and rights of children
  • Right to free education until the age of 18
  • Right to end a relationship, or divorce
  • Incest, or punishment for same
  • Right to wear what you want (yes, women can wear pants, and men can wear skirts. But for how long?)
  • Right to chew gum (absurd, I know, but in some places, you can’t)

There’s a lot that can be taken away from the citizens of this country. Some of it may seem ridiculous, but stranger things have happened. That’s just a short list, realistic as well as absurd, of what the current Supreme Court could take away from us.

Here’s what the Supreme Court is NOT going to take away:

  • Right of a Supreme Court justice’s spouse to brazenly lobby presidents, their staff, members of Congress for pet projects that encourage undermining the Constitution and legally elected governments.
  • Right of a Supreme Court justice to remain a sitting justice while maintaining that he and his spouse never discuss politics, money, martial law, or law in general.
  • Right of a Supreme Court justice to lie under oath to Congress, swearing that they consider Roe v. Wade “settled law” and would not seek to overturn it.
  • Right of a Supreme Court justice to be ignorant and completely dependent on their law clerks and the people who give them and theirs “dark money”.

So thank you to Rep. Susan Collins for believing Kavanaugh’s assurances that he considered Roe v. Wade settled law, despite his history of “not remembering” and, I believe, outright lying. Thank you to all the representatives who blithely accepted Thomas, Gorusch, Kavanaugh and Barrett when they refused to state their opinions because they supposedly had none. Thank you for listening to loud voices and loud money instead of the still, small voice of a righteous conscience. Thank you for caring more about your pockets, and your power, than you do about victims of rape and incest.

Power and pockets. That’s all it’s about. What a shame we’ve come to this.
