Supreme Arrogance

UPDATE:

Gotta love this:



Hi folks! I'm on vaCay living it up party boy style in NYC. #PRIDE But I have to chime in on what I consider to be the worst SCOTUS decision in a very long time. Rather than being a court judging laws SCOTUS has now appointed itself into the role of Grand Inquisitors, rooting out which religious doctrines are "deeply held" and which are worthy of circumventing the laws the rest of us have to follow.

To quote the Notorious RBG:

Would the exemption…extend to employers with religiously grounded objections to blood transfusions (Jehovah's Witnesses); antidepressants (Scientologists); medications derived from pigs, including anesthesia, intravenous fluids, and pills coated with gelatin (certain Muslims, Jews, and Hindus); and vaccinations[?]…Not much help there for the lower courts bound by today's decision."
Funny how the deeply held, worthy of exceptions from our laws, beliefs about contraception seem to EXACTLY match the religions followed by the justices who sided with Hobby Lobby! It's almost as if they believe theirs is the one true faith and the only path to righteousness and that they have the right to enforce that view from the bench. Weird.

OK, back to the men, or women, or whatever!

  4. If hobby lobby was really so antiabortion they wouldn't do business with China. They're hypocrites of the highest order.

  5. You mean "his milkshake brings all the boys to the yard." That is a photo of a guy, not a girl, well maybe a post op guy who is now a girl.

    To paraphrase the late great Notorious BIG, this guy / girl gets more butt than an ashtray.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
