Pay attention. The draft #RoevWade opinion will un-do decades of progress for human rights, for women, for LBGTQIA folks, for anyone who wants to love who they love. #GoodbyeLoving 1/
All the dignity and autonomy Justice Kennedy wrote so eloquently about in Lawrence v. Texas (the first opinion to recognize a right to have sex just to express love and intimacy — or have fun — and not just to make babies!) will be gone with Alito’s words 2/

(1/2) Yes, I would. The foundation of the Constitution is bicameralism.

Bicameralism as stated in Federalist #62, the House side of Congress represents the people, the Senate represents the states. The states are the check on the federal government, once the #17A was passed,

1/ Thread: Here are my 12 thoughts on #Brexit. We are at half-time in Art50 process. Departure UK from EU now exactly 12m away. Right moment to take stock and list a few backward- and forward-looking thoughts. (You can also read the full blog-post here:…)
#1: When the UK voted leave, many said the EU would be weakened. Today it is clear that the contrary is true: it’s the UK not the EU that has been weakened by Brexit.
