    None of the state's require union participation of anyone. The question is should people who directly benefit from other people's efforts in a business setting have to pay for at least that small part which they directly benefit from. Political lobbying and other expenses were not something they had to contribute too. As it is specifically about direct business negotiations the Republicans really did lie and deliberately try to conflate the two issues and that is why this is clearly a bad ruling based upon obvious political motivations.

    The argument being put forth is that, for government employees, issues germane to collective bargaining are inherently political. The First Amendment protects government employees from having to support such political expression. The litigant in question received the benefits but balked on paying the fees because he felt that such fees were a form of forced political expression.

    With Anthony Kennedy retiring, and a new seat open on the U.S. Supreme Court, the LGBT, Muslim, Latino, and Hispanic communities are going to be in a precarious situation. They could lose their rights, their freedom, their lives, all possible in a court with overwhelming antipathy towards their existence.

    Yes, God forbid society ever derive its order from freedom of association without the benevolent guns of the state to direct us.

    Yep, cuz the bigots of the world always stayed over in their little whites-only barbecues, and didn't go out and lynch anyone.
    Poor little things.
    Bullied into not bullying.

    Hey! If those black people wouldn’t have kept bleeding and dying when they were shot, stabbed, and hanged by hate groups like the KKK back in the 50s and 60s, things would have been fine, but no, they had to provoke things by getting all uppity and voting. Don’t you see? People like @cpurick are the victims!

    “Liberal Canard” sounds like it should either be a chess gambit, or a kind of pie.

    Sorry, freedom of association never allowed anybody to violate your rights. It simply gave each of us the last word over our own money and our own property. You should never be excused from having to please your fellow man in order to earn his support.

    The teachers union never did a thing for me. And if there is a strike I still have to go to work.

    You honestly don't believe John's screeching that gays, Latinos, and Muslims might be murdered by the supreme court isn't scaremongering? I can see fringe issues which effect people coming down in unfavorable ways by 6-3 right leaning court but I can't see the mass killings he claimed to be possible. Yeah, that really is scaremongering and acting irrationally.

    There will be a ton of bad decisions out of this court but mass killings will not be one of them.

    I can honestly say I have never posted the term "liberal canard" until this very post. Dicky rarely let's facts get in his way though so you two have something in common, Mr. They might be killing the gays, Latinos, and blacks.

    Today I did mention left forge enjoys a particular canard but left forge, thankfully, does not represent all liberals. Just a tiny particularly reality adverse subsection of all liberals.

    That's a bit harsh, no? I'm Hispanic and I'm not fearing this scenario.

    From my position of privilege, I can only imagine how contemptible a person has to be before they begin to feel threatened by the true exercise of free will. You know, it's never too late for you to bathe, cut your hair, and start wearing gender-appropriate clothing. With proper rehabilitation, even you can probably get a job in Trump's America.

    I am not going to Borger looking up Teacher's union contracts for the various districts you have worked in the past but will say I highly doubt your statement to be true. Hell l, right off the top of my head the employment contract which allowed you to make it harder to fire your butt was no doubt the product of a lot of lobbying and hard bargaining done by the Teacher's union in your state and we all know you have repeatedly benefited from that.

    Trump will have #3 any day now, and Sodomayer is only one gravy-laden biscuit away from being his 4th! Go Prez!

    I had heard that Democrats were so worried about Ginsburg's health that they were sending her Cale recipes.

    We need a better system for filling Supreme Court vacancies in my opinion.
