I attended the SC oral arguments in
United States v. Virginia, 518 U.S. 515 and I keep waiting for Trump's lawyers to be lead down the primrose path;
"So the women's campus would provide the same instruction, same instructors?"
" But in buildings on a different campus close by?"
"So it will be separate......"

There have now been two powerful liberal women -- Feinstein & RBG - who refused to resign their office, while obviously in poor health, & who died in office, with dire consequences in RBG's case.
Fortunately, Feinstein's death will not have such consequences but why these powerful women didn't "do the right thing" & resign when they obviously could not carry out their duties of office, is puzzlingly.
Apparently, powerful women feel the need to cling to their power as much as powerful men do. Power is addictive.
13 #Republican lawmakers, including #MikePence & #MarshaBlackburn, who now sits on the #Senate #Judiciary Cmte, went further, calling on Ginsburg to #recuse herself from any future cases related to #abortion. The justice brushed off the criticism: “I think & thought & still think it’s a lovely thing,” she said of the lecture series. (#RBG died in 2020.)
Ex-Goatwhore Bassist James Harvey IV Passed Away
Our deepest condolences to his friends, family, and fans. The post Ex-Goatwhore Bassist James Harvey IV Passed Away appeared first on MetalSucks.
“If we start the process of trying to expand the court, we’re going to politicize it maybe forever in a way that is not healthy, that you can’t get back.” --Joe #Biden.
Somebody tell the octogenarian executive here that #SCOTUS got politicized in a way we can't get back when #Democrats didn't pressure #RBG to retire and let #McConnell ratf*ck #Obama's Garland nomination.
I mean, we _could_, but Drug War Joe here is smothering that baby in the crib. /1
A little video of the blinking chaser happening for my ART LOVE MONEY sculpture topper. The fast speeds are nice for the sense of urgency when the timer is on... I think a slower fade between the colors will be nice for non timed modes.
The bottom will also be RGB- but out of sync with the top- so there should be a bit of color mixing.
New Jersey has their primaries today. New Jersey go out and vote our rights depend on it.

Dear Minneapolis DFL, dancing on people's graves is not a good look.
But Republican Party of Minnesota, stop acting like your party is on some high road. I remember the disgusting behavior of ELECTED Republicans when #RBG passed. You guys are not saints. https://www.startribune.com/minneapolis-dfl-chair-deletes-tweet-mocking-ronald-reagans-death-19-years-ago/600280305/
OMR I LOVE THESE 😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍
When I was a full-on theist (conservative leaning-toward-fundamentalist #Christian), I deplored "taking the Lord's name in vain. "Therefore, no "oh my God" or OMG etc etc.
As an a/theist, I now feel equally squicky about that.
So I have decided from now on, I shall swear by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I don't think RBG will mind.
The #Feinstein situation is exemplary of #Democrat’s competency as a party. Rather than heed the signs of her behavior and health, Dems would rather keep the status quo. #RBG is another example of this and also how the #SupremeCourt was lost.
It’s so ironic that it fell to anti-abortion, Supreme Court Justice Alito to stay the awful ruling by a Texas federal judge. It’s only for five days but still, the irony would not be lost on his old friend Ruth Bader Ginsberg. OH HOW I MISS HER!!!
Seen at the #AnnArbor Michigan Theater on March 14th: "All Things Equal: The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg", a one woman show starring Michelle Azar. Went with a bunch of friends, several who came from Chicago.
Michelle was amazing, totally embodying #RBG. The sold-out audience laughed, cheered, and cried, as if RBG was there with us and we were given a gift of her reincarnation.
If you have the chance, run to see this incredible show. Info here: https://michelleazar.com/index.html
40% of the federal judiciary processed through the Manne Seminars when they were running, including Supremes like #RBG, who later parroted their dogma in their written opinions, which shifted measurably and dramatically to support monopolies:
Bork-driven antitrust's ghost-based foundations were so thoroughly buried that anyone who broke from its orthodoxy was considered a lunatic-fringe radical.
🤔 😆 . Action figures for political folks like me.
Subtootish: Yes, courts do at times cite / reference foreign court law.
Ginsburg Shares Views on Influence of Foreign Law on Her Court, and Vice Versa
Justice Ginsburg said the controversy was based on the misunderstanding that citing a foreign precedent means the court considers itself bound by foreign law as opposed to merely being influenced by such power as its reasoning holds.
“Why shouldn’t we look to the wisdom of a judge from abroad with at least as much ease as we would read a law review article written by a professor?” she asked.
She added that the failure to engage foreign decisions had resulted in diminished influence for the United States Supreme Court.
The Canadian Supreme Court, she said, is “probably cited more widely abroad than the U.S. Supreme Court.” There is one reason for that, she said: “You will not be listened to if you don’t listen to others.”
A 2009 story, in the event you're wondering what exactly the Ghost of the Late RBG is doing giving interviews to the NYTimes, though something tells me that's precisely the sort of thing she would in fact do.
