SCOTUS dysfunction: Gorsuch refuses to wear mask on the bench

He's the only one. As a result, Sotomayor, normally his neighbor, is hearing cases remote. Along with Breyer.

As observed by Court reporter Mark Sherman.

This is the same Gorsuch who wrote an article some years back lamenting the loss of civility in public life. In it he quoted a childhood lesson of George Washington's about not close talking to people so you won't get spit in their face.

Indeed Neil, indeed.

Read that the other day. All part of the conservative narrative to downplay the importance of the issue … if there are no guarantees, they WON’T be “told what to do.” And that’s why they’ll come down against Biden’s directive for vaccinations.

I think it has been said before; it seems that now there are 5 justices appointed by R's, there is no longer a need to pretend to be civil.

Or six by R’s but what’s one justice more or less mean anyway.

Sonia Sotomayor is 67 and has diabetes. Imagine serving with her on the highest court and refusing to take an easy measure that would help prevent her and others from getting sick.

Something everyone else in the room does without issue.

This is far worse than making a political point. It is making things deeply personal. And I think that's a good metaphor for what is wrong with us now as a nation.

You're thinking of the wrong guy.

That's the beer-swilling accused rapist Kavanaugh

Ug, there's about zero chance that someone who's unwilling to wear a mask will uphold the vaccine / testing precautions.

Who would have guessed that little pieces of cloth would turn out to be such accurate aholemeters?

Joining the red hat and, sadly, the American Flag in recent years.

Bastardizations of the flag.

He thinks truly free thinkers think they can do what they prefer for themselves so they should do that, but I think truly free thinkers should freely decide to do that which is best for others when it involves minimal impact on yourself.

Either that or he's a conspiracy loonie.

My first thought at seeing Acer's post.

Patriot and patriotism are similarly appropriated and bastardized.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
