Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Tuesday floated the idea of an all-female Supreme Court bench. Speaking at the 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference in Colorado, the second-ever female Justice explained that no one “ever raised a question” when there were nine men on the Supreme Court, but “when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the bench] and I say when there are nine, people are shocked.” Ginsburg also added that “It was the wrong perception for people to see just a little woman and eight larger men,” when she was briefly the only woman on the bench, after Justice Sandra Day O’Connor retired and before Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan were appointed. Ginsburg called that period of her time on the bench “lonely.” The Northern District of California recently became the first major federal court to have an all-female bench.

Obviously, you are pleased that Obama has installed a new dictator in Egypt who is far worse than Mubarak.

What exactly do you think should be the solution?
Less government.

Less government micromanaging, controlling, interfering and taking more of people's money to waste on all of the above.

That's the solution.

Why Conservatives Must Surrender on 'Redistribution'
....Eventually, if conservatives want to keep putting their stamp on American economic policy, they will have to give in to that reality that government must become more redistributive. Otherwise, the Republican Party will be left with an economic appeal to an affluent minority of the population and an ethnic appeal to a shrinking older white-voter base -- and that will win them fewer and fewer elections.

If Conservatives/Republicans agree to redistribute wealth, then there is no point in their existence.

Just have a one-party dictatorship.

Loud-mouthed people like you who support repealing the First Amendment will ultimately suffer from the effects.

Perhaps we can find some other country to sentence you to death.

Bullshit! We are about to nosedive into a depression with Obama cheering the way. It's what he wants. Remember:'Never let a good crisis go to waste!'

Just great, all we need are more women judges. No wait, this is just what we need as they tend to look at both sides of an issue with a little more thought and weigh both sides as opposed to men who rush headlong into war with Iraq.

Hundreds of New York City fast food workers are staging a one-day strike against many of the biggest fast food chains, including McDonald's, Wendy's, KFC, Taco Bell, Domino's, Papa John's. The attempt to organize dozens of fast food restaurants within a single city is something new, a big step beyond efforts to go restaurant by restaurant, and Steven Greenhouse reports that the campaign has 40 full-time organizers.

Lopez earns $8.75 an hour as a shift manager (not a supervisory position) and works another job, allowing him to get by without public assistance, but said that many of his coworkers who make the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour or only slightly more rely on food stamps or other government programs. He thinks, reasonably enough, that's not right.

Yes, I agree. We also need more women in politics; hopefully a female President is in the near future as well.

People like Terry Jones make Americans and Christians look bad. He has put Americans all over the world in danger because of his sicko comments and disrespect for others.
He brings in upon himself so good riddance.
