Can you believe that it's Wednesday already? I can't. I'm scheduled to work an 8-hour shift tomorrow and am not feeling too enthusiastic.
Yesterday was Busy. Notice the capital B. I had lunch with my cousin and her husband. Her birthday's next month, so she's a bit older than me. When she and I were young our very progressive grandmother took us places, young being around 10 years old. Taking the two of us on a 2-hour train ride to the Philadelphia Zoo was an undertaking. Neither one of us remembers the trip in its entirety, but then that was a long, long time ago.
Then, last evening, I went to see Jordan Peele's latest "Nope." I really liked it. That being said, my friend thought it dragged and did not like Emerald, the character played by Keke Palmer. I liked Emerald, a woman wanting to be an authority who learns that survival has not thing to do with authority, a woman who discovers her street smarts might be the wrong smarts if she wants to stay alive. Casting is excellent. I liked Bandon Perea as Angel, who learns that staying alive has its own sharp barbs. Daniel Kaluuya, whose quiet, brooding silence hides his inner strength. He's much smarter than his sister, Emerald. "Nope" is not for everybody. Oh, and in case you're wondering, it is science fiction and there's a lot more action than horror, in fact I didn't think it was scary at all... just very intense.
Oh, Thomas is evil incarnate, indeed. All that self-hatred eats people from the inside. I could bet one or more justice was on the fence and the leak, as you said, would have made them seem as 'gone to the libs'. Devious.ReplyDelete
The limited term sounds reasonable. Still, they'll have time to destroy the country so expanding the court should also be a thing.
And I'd love to see Nope. I love the theme (always prefer intense to scary, too) and I love that the cast is so diverse.
And vote, people, VOTE!
Term limits for the Justices would be a win / win thing for America - which is why the Conservatives would hate it. The more I think about Nope, the more I realize how much I liked it.Delete
Im all for term limits....on any and every position. After a while their all as uselessess as tits on a bull.ReplyDelete
They become filled with mediocrity, like Grassley, who should have been put out to pasture a long time ago.Delete
I hadn't heard that about SCOTUS term limits but ..... YES!!!!!ReplyDelete
I did read that Chief Justice Roberts tried to keep Roe v Wade as law but was outgunned.
I want Ginni's fat ass in a seat before the J6 committie.
Here you go. This info was also published in The Guardian, and Axios. https://thehill.com/homenews/house/3575349-democrats-introduce-bill-to-enact-term-limits-for-supreme-court-justices/Delete
I do think judges should have term limits. The old fucks stay in office too long. It should be the same in congress!ReplyDelete
So many people are in total agreement with this.Delete
While I'm sure there could be a lot to gain from a judge's seniority, I can't help thinking 18 years really is long enough for any of them to serve. Wonder if it will go through!ReplyDelete
I hope so. Honestly, I've never worked more than 14 years at one job. Change is good.Delete
