  2. Indeed. The sick, evil sickness that is Trump and the GOP will live on for 5 or 6 decades due to the Supreme Court justices Trump has appointed. He’s also stacking federal courts with right-wing nut jobs all over the country. Abortions will soon be illegal, and women will be jailed for having one. Executions will not only be done, but the pace of them will accelerate. The ugliness of this is just beginning.

      This is one of the reason the US will eventually break up – one way to get rid off a “conservative” SCOTUS would be to leave the Union. The ultimate irony of states rights…

      • Probably right. Sure is looking that way. BTW, I’m running for the Senate in 2020 on the issue of placing gas chambers and crematoriums throughout America to help deal with illegal immigration. It’s gaining a lot of momentum right now. I’m gonna add to my platform by advocating the use of drawing and quartering as America’s only use for executions. If this were done regularly and quickly, and if it were televised live, crime in America would end. Period. This, along with my insistence that America adopt a Christian theocracy as its way to govern, SHOULD, at the very least, get me the votes of every Christian evangelical in my state. I’m hopeful for my chances. $Amen$

          • Well, we’ve got such an outstanding President now, I wouldn’t wanna split the conservative Christian vote with my superb ideas. Wadda think of my drawing and quartering idea? Great, ain’t it? Slowly draw and quarter criminals on nationwide, live TV and I ASSURE you, crime will take a steep drop. Gas and cremate illegals; implement a Christian theocracy, and slowly draw and quarter criminals on live TV. Dude, ain’t NO way in hell I CAN’T win the Senate with these ideas!

        At present, they can’t get rid of a conservative court. The federal courts are getting right wing judges too

    Mr. Price’s execution was called off due to the delay:

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/04/12/alabama-inmate-christopher-lee-price-execution-postponed/3445091002/

    The state must now petition the court for a new execution date.

    And what any of this has to do with Mr. Trump is beyond me.

      Who has named tRump?
      The article is clear on why the execution was called off. Or that portion about the conservative judges arguing executions should happen sooner was erased from the article as you were reading?

        The political affiliation of the justices is irrelevant to the case. Mr. Price was convicted and sentenced to death in 1999 for a crime committed in 1991. Since then he’s filed several unsuccessful motions to avert being executed. It’s now 2019. How much longer should they wait?

    The U.S. Supreme Court allows a lifetime appointment which is totally absurd. The Justices should serve and eight year term and then be retired with no re-appointment permitted.
