We have a new President who cares if i and people i care about live or die and even if we live well or suffer.

AND a preliminary statement i heard has 5 Justices including new Kavanaugh stating that the ACA's stricken mandate is severable and the rest will stand.

This lifts a major burden because people who work can get cheap medical now and on public minimum-standard-of-care i can get all the holes i need drilled and filled and before ACA neither of these things were true and i'm dancing in the streets not because anyone lost but because i and many others get to be a cared-for firstworld person and not a decaying animal.  This was a very real threat to my world on every level.  

What good thing do recent events mean to you?

Those who are unhappy, im sorry for your loss but this thread is only for positive things.  You will also be cared for and you can take ypur laments to your /townhall where the denizens of this site deem they belong.

Now.  Whos a silly pony?  Im a silly pony.  Youre a silly pony.  Whos a silly pony APPLEJACK la la la

happy things please.  silly ponies

Yes.  Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Roberts cleared tipped their hands.  And I strongly suspect that Justice Barrett will rule against the ACA challengers as well.  The only remaining question is whether the Court rules against the challengers on the basis of lack of standing before they even reach the merits of whether the Individual Mandate is severable.

I'm not particularly thrilled by Biden's policy platform, but I'm glad that Trump is getting ousted because his behavior is corrosive to the norms of our republic.  At least Biden has the temperament of a statesman.

I don't see anything different from before.

My younger sister will be coming out of the closet soon. I think. I'm supporting her and her girlfriend all the way, of course. I'm glad that she's likely going to spend her twenties in a kinder world (and I'll spend my thirties in a kinder world) given the ramping up of social progress. Outside of the election, short term issues aside, the tide really appears to have changed. Ideas on LGBT rights aren't just the norm but for those of certain generations are seen as obvious truths.

God bless America and God bless its social activists.

Hmm...my love for humans means I understand all state subjugation -- whether Nazi totalitarianism or Plato's Republic -- as appropriate and just, so I am not to celebrate or lament any changes in state power for their sake; they are always loved.

>What good thing do recent events mean to you?

However, my kind usually prefers words to mean things scientific.  I do not feel entitled to clarity, of course, but President Trump mostly doesn't care for this kind of communication -- Tweets are short strings to annoy his opposition and please his followers, not to be taken literally or well-connected logically.  That's his right, and all politicians will do this to a degree, but perhaps others will do it less.

I, of course, am not authorized to know what Flower and lp represent.  I hope are you well, OP.  Slendid Llama is overworked, but alive.
