I only just heard on NPR radio, minutes ago. She fought the good fight and deserves a few moments of appreciation before we all turn straight to discussing the political repercussions.

she even commanded the respect and friendship of scalia, a man who scorned others as naturally as the dew falls downward.

These are good opinions and definitely this is the place to share them. While you’re at it, you should waggle your scrotum at her families.

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish goy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

RBG was my favorite justice, and in fact I pretty much liked anyone who has or had a primary home and/or summer home in New Mexico

There are always "firsts" in one's life. Tonight I commemorated my first poster flagging. Zero guesses about which poster earned this distinction.

RBG was my favorite justice

Definitely top 5

anvil, Saturday, 19 September 2020 03:19 (one year ago) link

She graduated first in her class at Columbia U. Law School and couldn't get a job at a NYC law firm because she was a woman. She argued six landmark gender discrimination cases before the SCOTUS and won five of them. So, yes, she is a progressive icon, whatever any Canadian woman thinks.

tho ashamed to admit i'm hearing every Aimless post with the voice he did in the ilx "voices" thread reciting the chaki "hot chick in my bed" post, now

Every GOP woman owes her liberty to RBG. History's merciless that way.

I can fix that if you give me a bit of lead time.

the unappreciated charisma of cows (Aimless), Saturday, 19 September 2020 03:32 (one year ago) link

as a canadian i'm confused as to why she's considered a progressive hero. she was one of the most progressive scotus justices but that isn't saying much.

wasdnous (abanana), Saturday, 19 September 2020 06:01 (one year ago) link

go live in canada then. and enjoy that. we don't care

global tetrahedron, Saturday, 19 September 2020 06:12 (one year ago) link

of course we care about the brutal violence and suffering that this has enabled, but in the end i truly do not care what canadians like you think. because this stuff is being done to us, you can judge in like a 'haha americans' but this stuff is being done to us. you are mildly immune... we are captive and not doing well. give us a break. and shut the fuck up

global tetrahedron, Saturday, 19 September 2020 06:15 (one year ago) link

honestly just shut up abanana

sorry to be incoherent, about nine drinks in

Sounds like it was pretty amazing that she hung on as long as she did but still would have been so much better if she'd manifested immortality another few months in the corporal form not just asa feminist, judicial legend.
OH my.
Revolution now?

Ananas: Do you read before you asks these pertinent questions of yours? Aimless succinctly described why about four posts above yours.

all the more reason to dismiss RBG's blinkered generation

So who you gonna call? The martini police (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 14 October 2021 11:47 (one week ago) link

This probably all came about when RBG was asked if she considered “bending the knee” while a democratic president was still in office

The public has a right to know what justices think. And they have a right to express themselves. Annoying paternalism from Katie Couric.

treeship., Thursday, 14 October 2021 14:27 (one week ago) link

RGB should have retired in 2012 and then she could have said whatever the hell she wanted without Katie Couric’s intervention.

All this proves once again that parents who dress their children as Ginsburg for social media props need professional help.
