Re: SCOTUS Rules Much of Oklahoma is Still Tribal Territory

These conservative judges are doing some job of conserving. Wondering if Trump regrets his picks. How about the fact that child rapists will now be set free due to this ruling? Perhaps an absolute view of the law fails to take into account ones own morals. But hey, this ruling makes many “feel good.”
