If and when Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to SCOTUS, the court will be a 6-3 conservative majority. All progressive goals will be in jeopardy as long as that majority is intact.

In the here and now, we need to mobilize to stop her confirmation!

So should we:

Toughest thing I've had to do today: learn to romaji type rendakued chi and tsu characters. ;^)

She sang to the spiders to weave her armour of silk, to the wasps to forge her a blade of paper and barbs, to the beavers to build her a chariot of birch bark and aspen, and to the wild sows to pull it.
She never asked the larks to sing her vengeance song, but they do.
