Just to put some perspective on the so-called population explosion: If every four people on the planet, mimicking a family of four, were allocated a quarter acre, mimicking a decent US suburban homestead, we would need the area of three Texas'!

There's plenty 'o room, peoples. :-)

Abortion becomes illegal and the black population grows proportionately?

Well, it would, so there's that. 

Indeed, one of noted eugenicist RBG's most ridiculous moments was making that exact connection as part of a defense of Roe!  "Frankly I had thought that at the time [Roe vs. Wade] was decided . . . there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of." 

Ah, yes, let's support abortion because it kills the poor, a disproportionate number of which are "B"lack.  That's what I call progressive.

When i was a kid the population explosion was in so many discussions.

To the contrary, the Constitution doesn't list ANY qualifications. Not even citizenship.

Harriet Miers?

This analysis relieves me, for I, too, am most interested in a repeat performance of the Kavanaugh hearings, for pure entertainment value, of course.

Yes.  And may I request in advance that whoever makes the rape allegation this time have that same creepy-hilarious Christine Blasey Ford voice?  Best-case scenario: A tearful Amy Coney Barrett fends off assault charges made by Minnie Mouse.

If anyone's interested, here's what conservatives are thinking right now:

1) It would be amazing if Trump rammed someone through.

2) But that would assure a Biden victory and a Democratic Senate.

3) And Democrats would get their revenge by packing the Court.

4) But since numbers three and four are probably going to happen anyway, let's go for it.

5) But Collins, Murkowski, Romney, and _______ will conspire to screw us.

6) So the whole thing is a pipe dream.

7) Still, it would have been nice to find out whom Trump's new nominee supposedly raped, decades ago.

Trump nominates. According to the above, he's damned if he does. But he's also damned if he doesn't! It's a choice between two procedures one of which may have high cost [Nominate and lose the Senate and/or the general], and one of which has a much higher cost if it goes awry [Don't nominate and lose the election.] Clear choice: Nominate!

Obama, then?  (Just kidding.)

Low was 68, high was 86. Clear skies and sun. Tree, grass, and ragweed pollen levels are all high, but I may risk opening windows in the morning.
