It's a wedding, not a gay wedding. Get over it.

Noam Chimpsky: bingethinker: This is great. Maybe this will cause a couple of the more reactionary pigs on the Supreme Court to have strokes, and you can replace them with decent human beings.

It actually makes it look like the whole samer wedding thing is all about tweaking breeders and it sort of makes the case that it's more of a political ActUp thing than something more substantial . This is why Ginsburg would claim that it's just a coincidence about the name of the groom, or whatever you call a dude in a dude/dude wedding.


I guess it might sorta seem like that, if you were completely insane.

MadAzza: Noam Chimpsky: These progressives are just consumed by the samer weddings. Nothing else matters. Many progressives have died of starvation recently because they forgot about food while thinking about the awesomeness of men marrying men and women marrying women.

What are you talking about?


He's not going gently into that good night. It is beginning to dawn on the hateful s um of the American Right that the Reagan Years are coming to an end. The Boomers, whose aging minds and huge population edge gave them disproportionate power, and dying and going senile. Without them, the Right dies at the polls. The GOP is about to get a massive eight-year enema.
We're going to see a lot more inchoate raging and terrorist violence from the righties before we finish shoveling them into the waste of history.

On the one hand, I want to say to you: stop trying to make the "samer" thing happen; it's not going to happen.

On the other, I like that "samer" sounds like "saner." Gives me warm fuzzies that you think gay marriages are saner marriages.

Go you, you FABULOUS man!

Hobodeluxe: tillerman35: Won't this now be used by opponents of gender/orientation/whatever equality to put a lot of pressure on her to recuse herself whenever a case related to this subject is argued before the court?  Seems to me by doing something so public, she's effectively stating that she has a bias toward one side of the argument.

did it matter when Scalia went hunting with a guy before hearing his case?


I don't recall Thomas recusing himself from the health care vote, even though his Tea Party activist wife has ties to a bunch of anti-Obamacare groups.

Yes, well, this 'samer' word I invented is a cry for help and attention. I am not stupid but I pretend to be stupid on a website so that people will interact with me. useful because it covers both male/male and female/female. The word 'gay' often is to apply only to men whereas women/women has the word 'lesbian'. Samer covers both instances of non hetero couplings.

The real story here isn't that she's going to officiate a gay wedding, no surprise that she's doing that.  It's not even that one of the grooms is named John Roberts, though that's REALLY funny.

No, the real story is in this quote:  "I think it will be one more statement that people who love each other and want to live together should be able to enjoy the blessings and the strife in the marriage relationship," Ginsburg said of the pending nuptuals [sic] during a recent interview. "It won't be long before there will be another."

Specifically, the last bit is really informative.  She appears to be predicting the outcome of a future case - they couldn't do it with the Prop 8 case, the standing issue was just too big.  But it's a clear signal that she thinks the votes are there to make marriage discrimination illegal nationwide.

When I was a teen, "gay" covered lesbians too. I still use it as an all inclusive. Kinda like "the guys" and any of 1000 other words that are technically masculine but are commonly used to refer to mixed sex or even all female groups.

Anyway, I live in Alabama, and "samer" sounds like something Johnny-boy would sneer as he gets off his four wheeler after coming back from the Walmart with a case of Bud and some pork rinds. If your goal is try to create a label that already sounds vaguely like a slur, congratz. If you're trying to create a "safe" word for it, I got news: you're acting "special".

Also no one is laughing that a Supreme Court Justice is marrying a gay couple - one of whom shares a name with with another (Conservative) Supreme Court Justice?  How could that not click?

She probably was like "oh HELL NO I can't pass this chance up!"

Just imagine the next day in the office... she is giving him so much hell.

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Best "be a decent human being/troll the assholes" combo in a while


Ginsberg is known as the ass-kicker in the SCOTUS gym. After beating cancer twice,

She should retire while Obama can nominate a successor and then sock Scalia in the face while kicking Roberts in the balls.

feckingmorons: Did she quit?

Nobody tells me anything.


No, there's just been talk about her maybe stepping down while Obama is in office and control of the senate is a sure thing so that an appropriate replacement can be confirmed without GOP meddling, but I doubt it will happen.  The Democrats should hold the Senate through midterms and unless something changes dramatically in the GOP they don't have a shot in taking the White House in '16.

She's hands down the best mind on the bench.  Of course, she's also getting up there in years.  She might as well have some fun while she can.

I finally invent a useful word come right out and start calling namesand the cult-speak community deems it a 'slur'. I guess that's something new for my resume not in the slightest surprising-- slur inventor.

No, 'samer' is just your handy way of lumping all those folks together for the convenience of saving on typing with your fat-sounding greasy sausage fingers.

flondrix: haolegirl: Well this is just awesome! I'm totally straight, but I'd go gay just to say I had a supreme court justice officiate at my wedding!

In what jurisdiction do Supreme Court Justices have the authority to marry people?  Sure, they are judges, but wouldn't they have to be a judge or justice of the peace in a particular state in order to marry people?


The judges on the court didn't spring forth from a rock or fall from the heavens. They are all from some state or another.

pueblonative: Not to be a right wing troll, but can federal justices officiate marriages seeing as how marriage isn't a federal offense?



Justice Thomas officiated at Rush Limbaugh's failed third marriage, his first to a gold digger. When you think about it that's pretty offensive to the idea of "sanctity of marriage" in my opinion...

What a stupid coont.


So, do you hate her because she is a woman, or because she supports gays, or both. I'm trying to nail down what kind of bigot you are. I already have you down for racist, and possibly very violent, due to your previous comments. Let me tell you, your name reference to killdozer is not helping either.

I don't really think so. No one would question a justice's bias if he or she officiated over a straight wedding.

I saw oral arguments a couple years ago. It was a huge pleasure to be in the same room as Ginsburg. Thomas, not so much. He disgusts me because he doesn't deserve the seat. Scalia is at least smart even though I loathe his existence.

Highly recommend a trip to see the process in person.

Breeders get married for God and Samers get married for lulz? You sure both don't get married for legal and tax reasons?

People marrying others of the same gender doesn't bother me a bit, but I think you might be in need of some jive correction therapy.
