    This is great news on the abortion front.




    (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservatives suggested they are poised to curb abortion rights and uphold Mississippi’s ban on the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy, as the court tackled its most consequential reproductive-rights case in a generation.




    In an argument that lasted almost two hours, all six conservative justices indicated they would let states start banning abortion far earlier than the court’s precedents have previously allowed. Under a 1992 ruling, states can’t impose significant obstacles before fetal viability, which the court suggested was around 23 or 24 weeks at the time.












    “If it really is an issue about choice, why is 15 weeks not enough time?” Chief Justice John Roberts asked the lawyer challenging the Mississippi law on behalf of the state’s lone abortion clinic.

    Two other pivotal justices, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, suggested they might go further and overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide in 1973. Kavanaugh listed a series of famous cases, including decisions that outlawed school segregation and legalized gay marriage, in which the court overturned precedents.

    “If we think that the prior precedents are seriously wrong -- if that -- why then doesn’t the history of this court’s practice with respect to those cases tell us that the right answer is actually a return to the position of neutrality and not stick with those precedents in the same way that all those others didn’t?” Kavanaugh asked.


    Barrett questioned the contention by abortion-rights advocates that women would be forced into bearing the burden of parenthood if they couldn’t terminate a pregnancy. She said all 50 states have “safe haven” laws that let women relinquish their parental rights and put a baby up for adoption after giving birth.

    “Why don’t the safe haven laws take care of that problem?” Barrett asked.

    Even if the court doesn’t explicitly overturn Roe, a decision upholding Mississippi’s law would have a far-reaching impact. It would give states new license to curb abortion access, guaranteeing tighter restrictions in much of the country.

    Embrace the process, not the outcome.

    LIVE: President Joe Biden delivers remarks on supply chain amid the holiday season — 12/1/21 - YouTube

    ... President Biden talks about how much better the economy is today compared to a year ago when he became President.

    He discusses how his plans to overcome the supply chain crisis are beginning to take positive effect and how his "American Rescue Plan" helped many American families and businesses get through the COVID crisis.

    He describes how his new "Infrastructure law" will enable the USA to better compete into the next century and how his "Build Back Better" plan will help middle class families afford a better lifestyle with things like much lower costs prescription drugs and affordable daycare. All paid for by increased taxes on American corporations and wealthy citizens who paid almost no taxes last year.

    President Biden describes how the Republican party has not offered any ideas on how to improve the lives of middle class Americans other than to say NO to everything proposed.

    More Great News

    Stacey Abrams announces she's running for governor in Georgia
    By Dan Merica and Michael Warren, CNN
    Updated 4:48 PM EST, Wed December 01, 2021

    (CNN)Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams announced on Wednesday that she is running for governor, setting up a possible rematch with Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp in what could become one of the most closely watched races in the country.

    The voting rights advocate and former top Democrat in the Georgia House of Representatives tweeted her announcement, saying she is running "because opportunity in our state shouldn't be determined by zip code, background or access to power."

    Abrams' announcement is a boon for Democrats. Abrams ran for governor in 2018, losing to Kemp by 1.4 points, but her campaign vaulted her into the upper echelons of the Democratic Party and made her a fundraising force who will be able to throw millions at a run. Democrats believe demographic and political changes in Georgia -- as evidenced by President Joe Biden's electoral victory there last year and the state being represented by two Democrats in the Senate -- make it more possible for a Democrat to become the top executive in the state.

    Cheer up, Buttercup. I'm hoping that some of these liberals will honor their promise to move out of the USA. They keep going back on their word. Maybe a ban on abortion will be the straw that breaks the KamalaToe's back.

    How low can Joe go?




    President Joe Biden only has a 36 percent approval rating, according to a new Trafalgar Group poll released Wednesday.


    The poll showed that a whopping 52 percent of Americans strongly disapproved of Biden while 6.9 percent merely disapproved of his job performance.
