Little by little our rights are being exported to other countries. Countries we, as Americans, touted as, backwater, backwoods and backwards. Pro Choice? Pro Life? Pro…Do the Next Right Thing…is ebbing away.
So, you take a woman’s right to choose away? So, you take gay rights away? So, you take the environment away? Bit by bit, little pieces of Me/US gone!
Detention without Provocation
Surveillance Society ( a rapid expansion of data collection, storage, tracking, and mining)
I am not prepping for ‘doomsday’ but…I am concerned about the state of living in America.
Supreme Justice, how many women are enough…to sit on the bench of the Supreme Court?
When there are nine! When are there nine! Then there will be enough!
Sam Adams is dedicating a beer to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg named ‘When There Are Nine’
Why is Sam doing this?
To promote strong women as beer drinkers…of course.
Ruth (the name), as many may realize, hit the big time only once. You know the little book within the bigger book. That appears to be Ruth and all namesakes…one hit wonder.
Of course, through history, we see spit and spatters of ‘mediocre SuperStar…persons named, Ruth.
Ruth Buzzi – comedian
Ruth Ellis – famous British murderess
Dr. Ruth Westheimer – sex…pert
Ruth Gordon – Hot, cougar from the cult movie classic…Harold and Maude.
Oh, yeah, and me!
Editor’s note: If you are intent on looking for a not so famous Ruth. It is best to start the search at a place like Sunny-side nursing home or the old cemetery down the street that scares the shit out of you.
Good to see a Ruth with paraphernalia and trinkets adorned after her. With some research and to aid in gifts for next Christmas, here are many other Ruth prizes to choose from:
“As a result of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, American democracy is being undermined by the ability of the Koch brothers and other billionaire families. These wealthy contributors can literally buy politicians and elections by spending hundreds of millions of dollars in support of the candidates of their choice. We need to overturn Citizens United and move toward public funding of elections so that all candidates can run for office without being beholden to the wealthy and powerful.”
I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
