      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Yes that, or something like it, would be my first guess. Everyone'll rightly expect a good fight to get the next one confirmed under this administration's time left.

 

This man took his stands and was in the arena, doing his best as he saw it. I respect that, and hell, 79 years is a damn good run I'd say AND dying in your sleep! Pretty lucky guy all in all...

 

Sad for his family and friends. Including Justice Ginzburg, who really enjoyed his company.

Definitely the smart money would be on Friedrich v CTA being a 4-4 tie as things stand now.

Is it true that before he can be buried or cremated, millions of American women are going to decide what can be done to his body?

I don't believe in being disrespectful to a president Bush, Obama or a justice of the supreme court, these are people that deserve my respect.......I do know a friend that pop'ed a bottle of wine when Bill R bit it, personally I just thought Karma.

SCOTUS' no decision is a good result in Friedrich v CTA. Man, back in the day I worked in an "open shop" and it really pissed me off to see folks "opt out" of paying their share for representation. It effectively split the shop and nobody was happy, except maybe management. Fuck them, and the rats ya know?

 

Under no illusions were Justice Scalia still with us this result would not have happened...

I always have scratched my head how it takes 12 people to convict a man of a crime, but a simple majority is sufficient to set the law of the land, affecting everyone, rather than one person's fate.

that doesn't seem a hard circle to square - it's practically impossible to achieve unanimity on any issue, so it has to be reserved for the most extreme of decisions, no?

 

the main thing that annoys me about our system is that a majority can say you should be in charge, but, if you don't hold the congress too, it doesn't matter in the least, b/c you can't do anything (including so basic a thing as fill a vacancy in a public court, let alone enact a policy agenda you actually ran on)

We've still got Mr Natural Law, unmuted even. But then, Ruthizelah, still sharp, is but a winterz leaf, so the scales havent tipped away from Genesis and Jibberish just yet.

 

And there is 2016, with its election predictions bouncing end to end like electrons. Fascarchistic inferno or Femhawkian Superstate? The amperage is way up in the monkey cage. New rule: No rules. No shows, too.

 

Baby Huey's potential shitwake-a bloated continuation of the one that trails him now, would be no fun to clean up, but we Americans do seem to love to fuck up a good thing.

 

The models, such as they, seem to show a liberal halo at the end of this rainbow flag, but all change brings both light and dark.

 

The States are really where its at, anyway. Cascadia risin'.
