Yes, giving the CDC the essentially unlimited power that was used to extend the eviction moratorium was a terrible idea that would lead to abuse. If Congress wants to extend it then they can go ahead and do so

Hey I'm good with the eviction moratorium as long as there are safeguards in place for the landlords as well.

What would be the equitable solution?

This is one reason I have zero interest in ever having rental properties. I couldn't do this to people, and I would almost certainly end up with the hard luck cases.

Do you have any idea what a venture capitalist does, or do you just reflexively not like them because the word "capitalist" is in the name?

Chief Justice Roberts voted with the minority.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/01/us/supreme-court-texas-abortion.html

Quote :
"Chief Justice Roberts wrote that he would have blocked the law while appeals moved forward.

'The statutory scheme before the court is not only unusual, but unprecedented,' he wrote. 'The legislature has imposed a prohibition on abortions after roughly six weeks, and then essentially delegated enforcement of that prohibition to the populace at large. The desired consequence appears to be to insulate the state from responsibility for implementing and enforcing the regulatory regime.'

The chief justice underscored the tentative nature of the majority's ruling. 'Although the court denies the applicants' request for emergency relief today,' he wrote, 'the court's order is emphatic in making clear that it cannot be understood as sustaining the constitutionality of the law at issue.'"

The fact that John Roberts is frequently siding with liberal justices, shows how far to the right existing justices have moved.

They really should have found some way to delay the implementation of this law. It's facially unConstitutional in multiple ways (unless the Court overturns RvW), and its deliberately crafted to evade review until substantial, irreversible damage is done.

It appears that the Supreme Court is also getting in on the critical race theory game.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2021/12/carson-makin-supreme-court-religious-liberty.html

Quote :
"Justice Sam Alito drew upon this argument when he asked if a private school could receive money if it 'inculcates a purely materialistic view of life.' Taub hedged, explaining that 'there are other aspects of what a school could do that would be inconsistent with public education,' like teaching 'Marxism or Leninism' or 'white supremacy.' If such a school applied for funding, Taub said, 'a way would be found to ensure that that school is not allowed to participate.' Alito responded: 'Would you say the same thing about a school that teaches critical race theory?' (Taub: 'I don’t really know exactly what it means to teach critical race theory.') Barrett, too, did not seem to believe that Maine would truly pull funding from private schools that teach offensive ideas. She accused the state of failing to engage in real 'oversight,' discriminating against sectarian schools while giving secular schools 'a thumbs-up' to teach dangerous ideas."

I hope that schools have stopped teaching kids that the Supreme Court is a bastion of American ideals and that it’s non-partisan

it’s glaringly obvious that that’s bullshit and some of them would fit right in as a pundit on cable news

I'll be honest, I think a mandate for big businesses is a great idea, but I do see how it's executive overreach. I can see the gov't mandating via emergency order for healthcare, for federal contractors, gov't employees, and the military...but not every company over 100 people.

Except my company is too chicken to do it. They were hoping the government could do it for them and be the bad guy. But without broad application, my company can't implement due to the competitive landscape and the ignorant workforce. The result was expected, and at this point too late to have much effect even had it gone the other way. Six months ago, could have been interesting.

I mean, with that said, had SCOTUS implemented it, would your company bother to enforce it beyond something simple like "Hey, check a box if you've been vaccinated"

My company required us to upload vax cards and I'm happy they did.

Yes. They've said multiple times in updates that they would abide by the law. They also track vaccination rate and booster shots by uploaded cards. It's abysmal, though. Like 40%. Company has over 8,000 people, but mostly southern rednecks.

Both decisions were perfectly reasonable. OSHA has no business pushing public health policy that's only tangentially related to the workplace onto essentially the entire country. It's well outside of their scope and purpose. I dare say that if Congress passed such a policy, it would have been upheld, since an ant farting is Wisconsin at this point is considered "interstate commerce."

I don't think it's coincidental at all that once you changed to a case where the feds were acting within reasonable statutory authority, you got 2 conservatives to flip and sign on to upholding the policy. Does it suck that the Republicans are being intransigent on pretty much everything, including public health? Sure. But that's not an excuse for executive overreach. Get your shit together, come up with an actual plan that can pass muster, and promote it.

And? They're both vaccinated. There's got to be SOME endgame here, and if "everyone is vaccinated" ain't it, then I don't know what to tell you. He should stop being a douche and put on a mask, sure, but if she's that terrified to be around unmasked-but-vaccinated folks, then she SHOULD stay in her chambers.

It's so so so so easy for him to where a mask so that she can participate. Should people with comorbidities just be reclusive hermits?

I for one hope masks are a staple among courteous people for flu/covid seasons going forward. I haven't had a real cold/flu in 2 years, much less covid

Why in the fuck would you be referring to an endgame when omicron is still peaking?? That's just a retarded comment; sure there is an endgame...but we ain't there yet.
