When I was in school in the 1950s and 1960s, we had play practice, etc.

Now -- Active Shooter Practice...and it sure as fuck did not seem to work in TX.

When this news bulletin hit today about the latest mass shooting, I was sitting and chatting with a friend who is 77 years old and he and I could not believe what today's students face.


In my opinion: The NRA funded the GOP and they did their own "great lie" that the government is going to take your guns away...step, by little step by step, give 'em an inch and the govt will take a mile and soon, you will not be allowed to have any guns.

Peace to those who lost their lives and to their families and loved ones.

So what will happened when Loving v. Virginia (1967, 388 U.S. 1) comes before SCOTUS?

Like Roe, Loving (right of persons of different races to marry) also was based on privacy rights in the US Const -- "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

While marriages in the past of persons of different races after Loving can not be undone retroactively (I am assuming, but who knows), if privacy is NOT a Const right...how is SCOTUS going to deal with the privacy rights underpinning Loving as to future marriages of people not of the same race?

What a motherf'ing mess!

Next: Griswold v. Connecticut

1965: Privacy = a Constitutional right. Issue of the case was the right of married couples to obtain birth control. Connecticut prohibited this. SCOTUS said the use of birth control was a privacy right.

IMO, Griswold is next to fall.

😭 😭 😭 😭

Tears for my sisters who will be sacrificed by the right wing justices of the United States Supreme Court.
