Gorsuch Continues To Be Wingnuttia’s Best Investment

Well, that’s that:

The Supreme Court has delivered a potentially crushing blow to public-sector unions, ruling 5-4 today that they cannot collect fees from non-members. The ruling will likely diminish unions’ negotiating power and, with it, their political clout.

Why it matters: The public sector is one of the last bastions of labor’s strength — about 34% of government workers are unionized, compared with just 6.5% of the private sector. But this ruling could shrink those rolls significantly.

This is the direct result of the GOP stealing a SCOTUS seat, and is also the direct result of people who voted for the Russian Usurper and/or declined to vote because they are too pure.

All of us (not just public-sector employees) are going to suffer because of the 2016 Goat Rodeo, and if you thought that shaking things up was going to be a good thing, welcome to being a serf.

    With all the crap we have to deal with in this shitstorm administration, the Supreme Court appointments they made are going to have the most devastating effects over time. Expect to see Roe v Wade reintroduced as well as countless other decisions. Mitch McConnell, you SOB, should go to hell.

    The court has pretty much signaled that they will allow just about anything to pass constitutional muster so long as it marketed as necessary for “national security” carefully enough.

    Boy, it would be the pinnacle of irony if the mid terms produce a result Trump won’t accept (like he already warned us he’d be willing to do), and the administration were then to challenge their validity on the basis of them being corrupted by “foreign influences” and the nullification was necessary to preserve the security of our political system, eh?
    You know, until a full investigation can be conducted.
    By a carefully chosen committee of course.

    I mean, we’re down the rabbit hole so far now that anything is fucking possible, right?

      Interesting. Teachers, of course, will be the first whose unions go down, but Trump is well known for stiffing the help every chance he gets. I hope there are some who were able to remain in the admin who can pitch that cost reduction to him.

    I have no idea what the rethug’s have put in their cool aid, but damn that is some Strong stuff. I so wish the Kool Aid of my era, the 60’s had such a powerful and far reaching effect.
    Those that drank from the swamp still think everything is just hunky dory out there and won’t take their heads out of their butts long enough to smell the air and errors. There is no point in trying to reason with them since they all have their minds made up, at least till it’s them that are under the thumb personally.
    The best we can hope for is to drown them in a Blue Wave. Just how I wonder can we get that 50% that didn’t vote, motivated enough to do that simple thing of make an opinion and then cast a ballot?

      That’ll be tough. Sell it as ‘there have to be enough votes to make it hard for them to steal another election’ and hope they don’t notice that this is easily overridden by voting machine fixing.
