1789 was the year the constitution was written and we have gone back there. Time to bring back slavery. Sorry Justice Thomas. You’re not a justice now. You’re a slave.
It was a very forward-looking document in its time, a brilliant product of the age of enlightenment. Never mind all that stuff about slavery and how black people didn’t even count as a person. Of course there was no protection for women. Or health care. Or care for the environment.
The issue of “gay” or LGBTQ didn’t come up because no one was thinking about it and people who lived like that were secretive and careful. They were there, just quiet.
Ignoring ALL progress made in the years since we became a country (233 years), we’ve made guns legal everywhere, despite all the obvious reasons to not do that. All the dead people — adults and children are crying in pain — the result of failed gun control legislation in the past and now, the future.
For all city dwellers, imagine a giant traffic jam with everyone simmering with rage at every other driver. Drivers are honking their horns and shouting. But this time, everyone has a gun. Doesn’t that sound like a great idea? Talk about a big shoot out!
The cops won’t even come — if there still are police. Because the horrors that are looming will make policing far more dangerous than it already is. How long will democracy last? How long will this nation survive? And don’t think for a minute that gay and LGBTQ legislation won’t be the next target.
Will they bring back slavery too?
I’m appalled on so many levels I don’t even know where to begin. I’m sure healthcare will be back on the line and who knows what else? Soon they will be in our bedrooms. You will only be allowed to do it in missionary position and only with a person of the same race and religion. Oh, and religion in the schools — which actually goes against the ORIGINAL constitution — but they won’t let that stop them. We will all have to live THEIR version of Christianity, even those of us who are not Christian, atheist, obviously uninvolved in religion, or don’t practice “their” version of Christianity. Mormons, Buddhists, Jews, atheists — watch out. They are coming for you.
We have gone back, back, back, back to the early days of America’s industrial revolution. No longer is it a matter of conjecture if or when. We are there. You’d better unlearn reality as you know it because these justices are going to strip away every right we’ve gained over the past 100 years — and maybe longer.
History is clear on this: you can’t bring back the past. Other countries have tried and it has failed, often in the most dramatic and horrific fashion possible.
If you aren’t horrified by this, you’re stupid, ignorant, and know absolutely no history at all.
