Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday fiercely condemned the Supreme Court's current 6-3 conservative majority and came out in support for expanding the number of justices on the bench. "I believe it's time for Congress to yet again use its constitutional authority to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court," the Massachusetts Democrat she wrote in a Boston Globe op-ed. "I don't come to this conclusion lightly or because I disagree with a particular decision; I come to this conclusion because I believe the current court threatens the democratic foundations of our nation." Warren said that adding more justice

She'd better be careful what she's asking for. At the speed Washington works, it would get approved about the time Trump or DeSantis takes office.

Just because you disagree with the Supreme Court's decisions does not mean you change the number of Justices. It means you need to legally win more elections and have the opportunity to appoint more qualified judges to the Supreme Court as openings occur. There have been plenty of Supreme Court decisions that Republicans and Conservatives vehemently disagreed with yet they never suggested that the court be packed with additional conservative leaning justices. Stop being a sore loser Sen Karen.

Sen Warren is being awfully vocal lately. Is she auditioning as being stupidly liberal enough to take Kamala's place as VP then Diaper Joe's place as President once he gets lost in the Oval Office and resigns? Warren comes across as a clueless liberal academic so out of touch with the real world she makes dumb comments about billionaires and taxes, or packing the Supreme Court. She is trying to get out ahead of Hillary Clinton as the more likable alternative to Kamala.

President Biden said Thursday that Americans unvaccinated against the coronavirus are facing a winter of "severe illness and death." "It’s here now and it’s spreading and it’s going to increase," the president said about the omicron variant while meeting with his coronavirus response team. "For unvaccinated we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death if you’re unvaccinated for themselves, their families, and the hospitals they will soon overwhelm."

MEDFORD, Mass. — Police are searching for the people responsible for smash-and-grab robberies at several Massachusetts jewelry stores. Surveillance video shared by Touch of Midas in Burlington shows nine people breaking through the front door in the overnight hours between Saturday and Sunday. Those people then used hammers to smash display cases in order to grab fistfuls of jewelry. Those thieves were able to run off before anyone could catch them. Roland Racicot, the owner of Roland's Jewelry, said thieves broke into his 30-year-old Medford business and stole about $15,000 in merchandise the same night Touch of Midas was robbed. The

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously passed ground-breaking legislation to provide paid sick leave for cleaners, nannies, gardeners and other domestic workers. The measure — the first of its kind in the country — would affect some 10,000 people in San Francisco who work in private homes to clean, cook, tend children, garden, do personal organizing, or provide non-medical care for disabled people or seniors. This workforce is typically low-paid with many women and immigrants, supporters said. “I think these people have been taking care of people in San Francisco for a long time, and it’s about

As a recent wave of mob-led store robberies has put retailers, mall operators and communities on edge, one popular shopping center is keeping an unusual security measure in place through the holiday season. The Grove, a famous open-air shopping complex in Los Angeles, has added a high coil fence barrier that resembles barbed wire at the property's entrances and exits. Management added the "tangled tape" coil fencing, which is made from a custom aluminum-and-steel mesh, ahead of Thanksgiving weekend.

Full disclosure: I despise Steven Spielberg movies and dislike both Romeo and Juliet and the 1961 West Side Story (WSS) movie. For that reason, I take particular delight in noting that Steven Spielberg's remake of WSS may have enthralled critics, but no one is rushing to see it. And no wonder, given that it's so darn woke that parts of it are in a language most Americans don't speak, but Spielberg refused to include subtitles. Let me quickly get through my biases. I hate Steven Spielberg movies because I find them overblown, predictable, and incredibly boring. I also dislike the way he presents children.

A recent survey finds that 67% of vaccinated Americans believe the unvaccinated should pay a “COVID tax” to cover businesses’ pandemic safety expenses, but most business owners and the unvaccinated themselves don’t believe in such fees. Skynova, an invoicing software for small businesses, conducted the digital survey of 1,075 Americans.

President Joe Biden's nominee for the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate "gender advisers" for combat troops are critical to the United States' success, a position some veterans say is nothing more than a left-wing initiative that distracts from the military's core duties.

Christopher Grady intends to implement "women, peace, and security" legislation within the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
