    Fun times.

    Maybe. They regulate our faces however they wish with their mask mandates.

    Roe verses Wade? I thought they issued a decision decades ago?
    Has the supreme court, ever revisited a case they already decided on? They might have a different aspect on a similar case, but I didn't think they ever went back on their precedents. (I am sure that new justices haven't always agreed with former, however)

    It is rare, but has happened ~150 times over the years.

    Sure they do. They reversed Plessy v. Ferguson.

    LOL. That's the funniest thing I've read all week. Next thing you're going to tell me is that fox news is "fair and balanced".

    The source I read said Politico is moderate to left leaning. You don’t have to agree with that.

    what leaning is it? I don't even know. Is this about the Axel Springer acquisition of Politico and how that may force journalists to comply with it's principles:

    "1. We stand up for freedom, the rule of law, democracy and a united Europe.
    2. We support the Jewish people and the right of the State of Israel to exist. [controversial if you want to write say a pro-Palestinian article]
    3. We show our solidarity in the free community of values ​​with the United States of America.
    4. We are committed to a free and social market economy.
    5. We reject political and religious extremism. "
    But I don't think the acquisition has changed much really in Politico IMO.
    Trees don't grow on money
