I saw a variation, but same sentiment, on this billboard yesterday while driving from the Houston metro to Dallas:

The person who posted this on reddit did so a year ago. It's still there.

I'm liking this idea.

She hates Trump. If Trump gets reelected, she will either outlive his Presidency, or die trying.

Democrats are going to start a civil war unless they address their mental illness and heal. Trump is our president and will get re-elected. Nothing they can do to stop it and they cemented his re-election by their own actions.

Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/sen...-restructuring
Fox News has a partisan reason to be anti-Democratic and spin things that way. And has done so on many, many occasions for many years.

However, if those politicians think or have proof that some of the Justices have close ties with the NRA, and that those ties explain some of their prior rulings, they have the right to allege that. It sounds like they're getting in the historical record what they think has gone on or is going on.

It's well known that the NRA has the Republican Party by the ya-ya. It's such a strong hold that the politicians make rulings or support bills that go against the majority of citizens, even the majority of Republicans. Most Republicans want assault weapons banned, but Republican politicians aren't going to do that. The NRA leaders won't let them.

Thanks for the demands that Court be "Healed", Demmies. Soon the healing will be complete, and your cases to try to introduce wealth redistribution, abortion, useless "gun control", etc. will be laughed out of court with barely a hearing.
Won't the conservative court want to declare civil rights as unconstitutional? Minorities are not entitled to be protected from discrimination?

We already have wealth redistribution going on against the will of many people who pretty strongly don't think poor people should be entitled to anything from the government. Don't you mean to include the Supreme Court to ban federal government welfare?

So it's being mentally ill to help poor people? OR is it mentally hell to use the government to help poor people?

And I wouldn't be the least surprised if some people in this forum quite passionately support that being done. Pence wants that done even more than Trump. So if the country actually decides to reelect Trump, I won't be surprised if Pence is elected president in 2024.

Only about 28.65% of Republicans are Southern Baptists.

(I took the number of Southern Baptists from Wikipedia, and the percentage of Southern Baptists who are Republican (63%) from Pew, and the number of Republicans from the University of Virginia Center for Politics)
