Senate, 96-3, Easily Affirms Judge Ginsburg as a Justice


Recommended Posts

 

Watch Justice Ginsburg get sworn in - CNN Video

 

 

August 1993, the Senate, with a vote of 96-3, easily affirms Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a Supreme Court Justice.

 

Even though she was a female rights activist and firmly supported a woman's right to choose, she was overwhelmingly approved.

 

The question is this: When did the right-wing get radicalized?

After her Court visit, Judge Ginsburg went to the White House for a Rose Garden appearance with Mr. Clinton. Standing by her side in the 89-degree heat, the President predicted that she would be "a great Justice" who would "move the Court not left or right, but forward."

Cricket fags. That's what I thought.

 

Let me clue you in:

 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FCC_fairness_doctrine

 

The fairness doctrine of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, was a policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was—in the FCC's view—honest, equitable, and balanced. The FCC eliminated the policy in 1987, under the Reagan administration.

The Rush Limbaugh Show is a conservative American talk radio show hosted by Rush Limbaugh. Since its nationally syndicated premiere in 1988, The Rush Limbaugh Show has become the highest-rated talk radio show in the United States.

 

 

Hate sells. Hate releases the chemical Oxytocin into the body. It is like adrenalin or meth. It is highly addictive. You cons are so high on hate you can't even see straight anymore. Junky MFers.

This is absolutely it and I have been saying this for the longest time.

 

The GOP turned FOX into its own official propaganda machine after 9/11 and it has only gotten worse since then... with others trying to one-up it in competition for their share of the angry conservative market.

 

At this point, there's really not much you can do to stop it... most of what you read online isn't regulated or bound by any journalistic standards and as seen on this board, the vast majority of RWNJs cannot distinguish between opinions and reports, nor do they have any interest in doing so.

 

Throw in bitterness about the wealth gap, prospects for the future, America's economic and social decline, the rise of the developing world, etc... it's a fucking mess and it's getting worse every single day.

Fox keeps the opinion pieces  and "news" separated far better than any other media outlet. Among the worst are NPR, CNN and MSNBC.

 

Then the "progressives" cry for  the "Fairness Doctrine" because nobody wants to listen to the vile filth of Stephany Miller, Norman Goldman or Bill Press.

The fairness doctrine required all outlets to present both sides of the story.

 

There is literally no reason whatsoever not to bring it back, except the fact that you WANT to be lied to.

I know what it did. It took away choice and places an unreasonable burden on any outlet that wants to air opinion. Being forced to speak isn't exactly "free speech". If you don't like what they air just turn it off.

 

The left wing might be able to keep a show on the air if their pundits weren't so vile.

It transformed the news media from an asset to democracy into a cynical consumer product. It's basically on the same level as upping the sugar, fat and salt content of foods to the point where they're more like addictive drugs than anything resembling nourishment.

 

Addicts don't actually have free will.

The left wouldn't allow it...it goes against their brainwashing narrative...one can watch most shows on FNC and get opposing viewpoints...the left has dropped this due to the obviousness of their lies and slant potentially being totally disputed...

It's the left that's radical you idiot, and your thread proves it.

 

Republicans voted FOR a liberal they deemed qualified even though they disagreed with her positions.

 

Contrast that with how Democrats obstruct everything the right tries to do.

 

How much more can the lefties in here fail with their faceplants???

Eat and drink nothing but soda and twinkies for a year and get back to me on that.

Eat and drink whatever you please and leave me out of it...and I'll do the same.

 

Do you need me or the government to tell you what to eat? If it will really help you out I'll dictate a diet for you.

Senate, 96-3, Easily Affirms Judge Ginsburg as a Justice

 

Well NEVER AGAIN, drvoke ... now that we know that it was the UNIPARTY that voted that way.  

 

Trump supporters ... that's half the country ... will fight your next Ginsburg to their dying breath from now on. 

 

Because we now know (thanks to your demonstration) that there is no negotiating with your side, no working with your side, nor appeasing your side.   

 

That part of the Republican Party better be dead or the Republican Party will be dead.

 

If necessary, we'll start a new party ... the Trump Party ... to make sure we don't want to end up a communist state.

My point is you can't eat only shit food and then expect everyone to believe you when you insist you're making healthy choices. The same goes for people who consume nothing but RWNJ media and think they're making an informed decision in the voting booth.
