Neil Gorsuch …. “several of his many ‘minuses’ …. wrong for SCOTUS, IMHO …. “!!


Gorsuch

~~March 24, 2017~~ 

WORSE THAN SCALIA

IN MY HUMBLE OPINION

Neil McGill Gorsuch (born August 29, 1967) is an American federal appellate judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

On February 1, 2017, Drumpf nominated Gorsuch to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, to fill the seat left vacant after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia eleven months earlier.

Gorsuch is a proponent of textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

Gorsuch Says Marriage Equality “Absolutely Settled Law,” But Gets Indignant About LGBT Rights

(LGBT OPINION)

Earlier on Tuesday, March 21, Senator Richard Durbin asked Gorsuch about his views on LGBT people, and President Trump’s nominee seemed annoyed about having to respond to the question.

“What about them?” he asked. “They’re people.”

When Durbin asked the nominee to give an example of a decision or statement he made that was favorable to LGBT people, Gorsuch declared that he feels all people are entitled to equal treatment under the law.

“Senator, I’ve tried to treat each case and each person as a person, not a ‘this kind of person,’ not a ‘that kind of person’ – a person,” Gorsuch replied.

“Equal justice under law is a radical promise in the history of mankind.”

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was grilled about LGBT rights during his confirmation hearings this week, and while the U.S. Circuit judge referred to same-sex marriage as “settled law,” he refused to share his own opinion on the matter.

WHEN WE RISE 

Whoever you are, you are not alone

How I wish I’d heard those words as I was coming up in my life.

I lived through this alone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, far away from this struggle.

I struggled on my own until I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was different.

I discovered others like me.

The process was long and prolonged. There was no internet then. The books that were available were few and difficult to come by.

Yet, I totally identify with the struggle.

That’s why we are not standing down now after the advances made since then.

I thank all of those who came before me.

I refuse to go back into the closet.

~A Love Letter to LGBT Activism~

When We Rise” was written and created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

This mini-series event chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

~Cleve Jones landed in San Francisco too late for the Summer of Love~

Fifty years ago, about 100,000 young people from around the country converged on San Francisco.

They were flower children and hippies, queers and artists, radicals and draft dodgers. A generation of freethinkers looked to the city for change, with resistance, liberation, and free expression unfurling in every corner.

Because of them, the city gave rise to movements in support of the rights of women, African-Americans, gays, farm workers, Native Americans, animals, and even the planet.

Change was everywhere.

ABC’s groundbreaking miniseries When We Rise introduces us to the lives, loves, and struggles of these activists, covering a 40-year span in the long battle for LGBT equality.

We Will Resist

I go back in time.

Because of my life’s experiences, I use the year 1969 as a reference for the proud emergence of the LGBT community.

I’m well aware that it was there for a long time before 1969.

It wasn’t called that at the time.

The Stonewall Inn riots frame the history for me.

I was 19 years old in 1969, barely coming of age, and realizing that I was ‘different‘.

I did not have a name for it.

I learned about it as the years went by.

In view of the current Republican administration, many of the rights that those before me fought for, may be in jeopardy.

( … as many other causes/topics seem to be … )

In the past, today and always … these rainbow colors don’t run!

We refuse to go back into the closet!!

CAST OF HAMILTON 

Trump Wants ‘Hamilton’ To Apologize

Here’s The ACLU’s Viral Response

Donald Trump has demanded that the cast of Hamilton apologize to Mike Pence for politely asking that he represent all of America’s citizens, no matter their race, sexuality, or religion.

That was interpreted as an attack by our hypersensitive president-elect, who railed against the actors and actresses in another one of his well known unhinged Twitter rants

The American Civil Liberties Union, however, had something to say about it.

The Thinker (French: Le Penseur) is a bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin, usually placed on a stone pedestal. The work shows a nude male figure of over life-size sitting on a rock with his chin resting on one hand as though deep in thought and is often used as an image to represent philosophy.
