Yeah, it would be damn hard to put that trash in the proper receptacle now. And that's not even considering the lack of will on the part of a weenie like Schumer even if a realistic means were now available. The horse has left the barn and blown the rusty hinges off the door on the way. Soon Alito, Thomas, Barrett, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Clusterphuck Team Captain Roberts will be handing out promotional wire hangers to visiting guests who come to take the tour. Alito's a crazy old fart who dreams of flogging and burning non-existent witches. Thomas sits in his office thumbing through sticky old porn mags. Kavanaugh drinks vast quantities of beer. Lordy, who knows what the other 3 of the Nazi 6 are doing in their spare time. Just trying to think up new ways to gain a legacy of tearing the country to shreds, I suppose.
But do we really need to be wedded to the number 9? The idea of 9 Supreme Court justices took hold back in the 19th century where republicans like to live. At the time, our population was between nearly 39 million people. That's according to the census of 1870. Congress's Judiciary Act of 1891 created 9 Courts Of Appeals under the Supreme Court. The 9 Courts of Appeals matched the 9 judicial circuits that were established as of 1861. There are now about 333 million people here now. Soon we will be at 9 times the number of 1870. There are also now 12 judicial circuits and 13 Courts of Appeals. Only one number has not changed since the 19th century, i.e. the number of people sitting on the Supreme Court. We are now well into the 21st century. 9 is the most antiquated number in our farcical judicial system. Is there not a budget for 4 more chairs, or do we have to wait 2 more centuries before we get 13 justices to match the number of Courts of Appeals?
Oh well, when was the last time Washington did something logical. Besides, there's always a Joe Manchin or an angry little bridge troll like Moscow Mitch or Susan Collins who's determined to lash out at the entire world and get in the way just because they were born looking like a sideshow freak or lack even a single cell of human decency. Hey Mitch, could be worse. You could be "Ted" Cruz.
