This is interesting in regard to appointments of judges, etc. I wonder why Fox News balked at the mention of George Soros.

I have a lot of fun with bookshelves, globes, and maps, and walls with awards and credentials, with my green screen in Zoom meetings.

Some of the comments and Qs on there are great.

Q: Why hasn't George Soros been arrested?

A: Marxism



Nice virtual books though.

Religion is almost impossible to understand if you don't believe. I see how it brings my wife comfort and strength, and part of me would like some of that too, but I can't force myself to believe in a diety.
From what I can tell, joining the atheist Satanists is a good option as then one can view Satan as just another bloke in the street. Just avoid the theistic Satanists.

Indeed. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was one of the most influential legislators of the past 27 years .... it's just a pity she was in the judicial branch of government, not the legislative branch.

If you want the law changed, the appropriate method to changing the law is through the legislative branch of government, with appropriate, public discussion of all sides and factors, not expecting government appointed officials to stretch the law to mean something that wasn't contemplated by the original legislators and then magically pull new laws out of a hat.

I found this interesting thought i would share
The 2018 salary of a Supreme Court associate justice is $255,300, according to the US Courts. Chief Justice John Roberts' salary is $267,000. Supreme Court justices earn more than double the $115,520 per year judges typically earn in the US, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That's still less than what Trump earns in a week when the Secret Service has to stay at one of his hotels.....

Compared to business executives in the US, that is extremely low.
