It's pleasing to see that Brother TatumAH has also seen the light. ThumbsUp

It is necessarily a Good if it is the will of the Almighty. Right-thinking justices, like Associate Justice Gorsuch, are instruments of the Almighty; bringing the Laws of Man into sync with the eternal Law of the Almighty.

Does anyone not yet believe that this is the worst case scenario?

No, it can get worse, much worse. Starting with the Republicans get their act together and pass regressive laws.

All the Republican ideas actually suck, when they are put into action. If they had any decent ideas, they could make some fairly permanent changes. But no, when people see how horrible their stuff is, it will be easy for a Democratic sweep to undo it.

As long as they don't do anything drastic like start WW III, we should end up okay. It's just going to take a few years.

I looked over the "Vacancy Act" provision that Trump is trying to use to put Mulvaney in charge of the CFPB, and it doesn't comport with the Act. To be appointed, the person had to have worked in the agency for 90 days. Mulvaney hasn't.

Nobody but Trump sycophants has claimed that Trump is very bright. Hmm

Doesn't matter. Mulvaney will try to gut the agency before any legal actions prevail.
