    Agreed, but you should add "and Congress and the President should simply ignore it". Time to correct our ancient Constitution designed to protect one minority i.e rich property owners and particularly the owners of slaves. against the democratic elected majority

    So... basically judge thomas is taking the conservative partisan position that a few social media companies (platforms) like facebook and twitter cannot control content on their businesses and instead must be considered a form of common carrier or accommodations (like a hotel). Thus have not first amendment rights (versus other businesses that were considered "people" and thus have such rights). And facebook and twitter are called out because they are most popular (since content can appear on other platforms).

    Yep. And it's a strange argument as hotels can regulate what happens in them.

    My understanding is that the Criminal Justice Reform that was passed under Trump with Democrats helped addressed things like mandatory sentencing. This might be an area where Congress could actually address the issue of giving life sentences without parole.

    I wonder if this is the "bi-partisanship" that manchin is protecting?

    I wonder what is more indefensible... declaring you will have the U.S. Senate block any Democrat-nominated supreme court justice, or using the same to push out a sitting Supreme Court Justice (Breyer).
