Seen lots of cartoons in that vein. That one is the most apt, I think.

Matthew Knott looks a seven key issues that a now conservative SCOTUS could affect America for years to come. I’m glad I don’t live there!


https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/the-seven-ways-brett-kavanaugh-could-transform-america-20181010-p508sx.html

Roe v Wade, of course—not so much outright repeal as chipping away at it, limiting when an abortion can be carried out

Shield Trumpy from indictment, subpoenas etc

Gay rights—again, chipping away at gay rights rather than overturning gay marriage etc

Death penalty—remove restrictions/requirements on states so the barbarity can keep going

Race—like here, make it harder for schools to ensure all races have access to higher education

Gerrymandering—give the go ahead for more blatant gerrymendering than already exists.

Guns—assault rifles on the street are OK! Yup.
