    The Supreme Court is issuing rulings fast and furious right now. There were two in the last 24 hours:

    Supreme Court rules for Colorado baker in same-sex wedding cake case - CNNPolitics

    Supreme Court Vacates Ruling on Undocumented Minor’s Abortion

    The last election was critical in determining the future of the court. With Trump in office, we're pretty much sunk if he gets to appoint even one more Justice. It's already pretty ugly.

    I've heard it said that the 4th most powerful person in the US at the moment is Ruth Bader Ginsberg's personal trainer.

    It's always distressing how once-respected countries descend into madness.

    Yup, I suspect there will be a challenge to Roe somewhere on the horizon. :(

    I still sometimes scratch my head and can't believe how all three branches of government have become, well, the word that springs to mind is, "infected." All at once. The system was never set up to cope with that. :(

    Whilst the people are welcoming and friendly, the landscapes fabulous, the culture amazing... I can't say I've ever respected the US in terms of equality, fairness, domestic and/or foreign.

    The US system has always had the possibility for this sort of thing built in though. The way people get appointed to the supreme court and the power those people have when they get there is asking for trouble.
