About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

If they ram through, I'm down with court packing

Absolutely right. There is no other play.

1. Oppose Trump's nominee prior to the election, invoking the GOP's own rule from 2016. 2. Defeat Trump on Nov 3 3. Keep seat open until Biden takes office 4. If GOP rams Trump pick thru anyway, add seats to the Court This is the play. There is no other play.
It’s truly shocking that 4 of 5 conservative justices on Supreme Court (Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch & Kavanaugh) were nominated by Republican presidents who lost popular vote

It’s pathetic if it takes the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg for progressives to understand the judicial consequences of elections the way conservatives do. But I’ll take it. We failed her heroic legacy in 2016. We cannot afford to do it again. Vote.

An extended case for court packing.
