foolish things

The Justices of the Supreme Court make their living with words. They read them, they write them, they speak them, they listen to them, and they rule with them. We currently have a Justice who uses words very poorly. At her confirmation hearing before the Senate, Justice Jackson was asked to give a definition of “woman.” That’s a legitimate question, since many legal matters depend on whether a given person is a woman or a man. Her answer was: “I can’t. Not in this context. I’m not a biologist.”

This past week, the court heard an important First Amendment case about whether the government can pressure social media companies like Facebook to censor what the government deems “misinformation.” The case was in the context of COVID a few years ago, when the government urged social media to censor materials that ran counter to the government policies on vaccines, social distancing, school closures and the like – policies that proved in large part to be wrong-headed and harmful. Jackson confronted the lawyer who was challenging the censorship: “My biggest concern is that your view has the First Amendment hamstringing the federal government in significant ways in the most important time periods.” Well, yes, that’s the point of the First Amendment. It’s to “hamstring” the government in its effort to censor viewpoints the government doesn’t like. We call the first ten Constitutional Amendments the “Bill of Rights” because it sets forth rights of the people, not because it sets forth rights of the government. PLEASE for God's sake, go watch The Royal Grift on YT. She seems to be the only one watching these people and making connections.

Even Kings had court jesters to provide some entertainment. Ketanji will never be taken as anything but a fool for the court even though her vote is equal to the other justices.

Obama famously called the first 10 Amendments "negative rights," correctly, meaning they nixed government action, but misleading because to Obama and progressives, "negative" is bad. There's always a possibility that Ms Jackson can learn, but I wouldn't count on it. Between her and the "wise" Latina woman legal scholarship shorts out a lot. But don't forget, Thomas is the "stupid" one. According to the Dems and their garbage media.

What's the issue here? She is an Affirmative Action-propelled, semi-literate, unqualified moron. We knew that. Everybody knew that. Most of them are. What is amazing is how incapable of embarrassment they are. Witness Kamala Harris and Fani Willis, to cite a very few examples. Most people would run for cover and avoid the limelight.

Making a foolish comment or question one in while can be excused as a slip up or poor wording. When it becomes a pattern of foolish questions every time one is asked, there is a problem with the person asking the questions. In this case, unfortunately for us, that person is a Justice on the Supreme Court.

Is capitalizing “Black” the ultimate condescension? 10 replies
Posted by Big Bopper 3/19/2024 8:52:07 PM Post Reply
I capitalize the word “Black” when referring to Black people. Many of my tribe object to that, since I don’t capitalize “white.” Those objections were expressed by readers most recently in reaction to my latest column. Here are my reasons for using “Black” to refer to Blacks, in reverse order of importance. First, the AP Style Manual calls for “Black” to be capitalized. That Manual is not the Bible, but it’s a highly recognized authority in what used to be called journalism. Relax. As I stated, my reasons are presented here in reverse order of importance. The AP Style Manual is the least important one.

A persistent myth is that, for the same job, women in America are paid only 84 cents for every dollar that men are paid. I explain below, first, why that myth is false and, second, why it’s dangerous. There are the several reasons why it’s false. The figures use a category of “full time work” for their comparisons. That’s defined as any work over 35 hours per week. That means a man working 55 hours a week is compared to a woman working 36. So, a man making, say, $30/hour for those 55 hours for a total of $1650/week is deemed to be making $210 more

This week was the ridiculous annual spectacle where the president is supposed to tell us the state of our so-called union, as if we don’t already know. That’s a particularly appropriate topic for the current president who was elected on the promise that he would be a “uniter, not divider” who would bring normalcy and decency back to the office. A few seconds into it, he was implying that the people who currently disfavor his re-election, a cohort comprising over half the country – and especially his “predecessor” whose name must not be spoken – were in league with Vladimir Putin.

When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing. They then become capable of believing in anything. ÉMILE CAMMAERTS Or maybe they believe he’s a warlock. Unless he has undergone that “gender affirmation” mutilation that they promote for other people’s children. Which I doubt.

The cabal that calls itself the Democratic Party of Colorado nearly pulled a coup last fall. Unburdened by any inconvenient process that might have been due, a Democrat state judge decided that Donald Trump was an insurrectionist. Therefore, under a clause of the 14th Amendment designed to prevent former Confederates from running for federal office, Trump was ineligible to run for president. Never mind that Trump had never been convicted or even charged with the crime of insurrection.

I voted for Donald Trump twice. But I’ve never used the words “altruistic” or “generous” to describe him. In fact, whenever my support for Trump came up, I always hastened to add, a little sanctimoniously, that I don’t like the man personally. I might be changing my mind. Here’s why. Trump didn’t need to go into politics. He’s a billionaire. He had everything a man could want, including a gorgeous ex-model for a wife. (Money is a more potent aphrodisiac than power. Sorry, Henry Kissinger – you’d have known that if only you’d had money.)

Lawyering is hard work. First, you have to get a college degree. OK, that’s not hard work; that’s a four-year summer camp these days. But then you have to get into law school. Once in law school, you waste three years being taught a lot of BS, but they never teach taught how to practice law. I got an ‘A’ in Property Law but was never taught how to buy a house. I got an ‘A’ in Contract Law but never drafted – or even read – a contract. I got an ‘A’ in Civil Procedure but was never taught when to stand up

In 2008, the United States Supreme Court decided in the Heller case that the Second Amendment right to bear arms applies not just to militias, but also to individual people. While militias are mentioned in the Amendment, the noun to which the right is granted is the “people.” Individuals are “people.” After Heller, much teeth-gnashing and garment-rending ensued from the left. They had hoped that the second Amendment applied only to militias. There being essentially no legal militias in the country anymore, that would mean the Second Amendment would apply to nobody.

Yesterday, the special prosecutor (technically called a “special counsel” these days, a term which obfuscates in my opinion) released his report on his investigation of Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. (It was not a good day for the Democrats. On the same day, the Supreme Court signaled in oral argument that they intend to smack down four publicity-hungry Colorado Supreme Court justices/activists who canceled Donald Trump from the Colorado ballot. My condolences to those four partisan hacks whose 15 minutes of fame is about to expire. And my congratulations to the three spirited dissenters on that same court, who’ve been vindicated.)

As I expected and predicted, the Supreme Court will probably decide the Trump/Colorado case in favor of Trump. I doubt the decision will be unanimous. On the liberal side, Justice Sotomayor was outspoken in her questions to Trump’s lawyer (Jonathan Mitchell who was arguing his sixth Supreme Court case). Justice Kagan’s questions, too, suggest to me that she will come down against Trump.

Immediately upon taking office, Joe Biden reversed President Trump’s “stay-in-Mexico” policy. Under that policy, immigrants seeking asylum were required to stay in Mexico or their home country while applying for asylum in the United States. The alternative – followed by the preceding Obama Administration – is for the immigrants to enter the country with the proviso that they have to show up for a hearing some months or years in the future to determine their asylum claim. Of course, many immigrants never showed up for their hearings, and simply remained in the country illegally.

The Biden administration finalized a rule on Wednesday that’s expected to make a significant amount of the new car market electric or hybrid. An administration official told reporters Tuesday that under the new rule, 56 percent of the new vehicles on the market in 2032 could be battery electric, while an additional 13 percent could be plug-in hybrids. That’s up from a collective 16 percent of sales being electric and hybrid cars last year. The rule is a cornerstone of the Biden administration’s climate agenda, as the cars and other light-duty vehicles it regulates currently make up about 17 percent of U.S. planet-warming emissions. The rule also regulates medium-duty vehicles. But

A new capital would signify a new beginning for the nation. Everyone who has seen the play Hamilton knows that the nation’s capital was moved to the present site in the District of Columbia due to a dinner-table bargain in 1790 between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton needed Jefferson’s support in Congress to win approval for federal assumption of revolutionary war debts; in return, Jefferson wanted Hamilton’s support in moving the capital from New York City to a location nearer to the population and geographical center of the country, later carved out between the states of Maryland and Virginia.

Orlando City Commissioner Regina Hill also allegedly used the six-figure sum on dental surgery, pricey perfume and clothes, and multiple intravenous vitamin infusions, according to reports. The spending spree came after Hill met the senior citizen in March 2021 and retained power of attorney over the 96-year-old the next month, the Orlando Sentinel reported, citing an Florida Department of Law Enforcement affidavit.
