  1. Oliver has to stop parading so many women right in front of Elio's like to have shattered his poor tiny heart in like gazillion pieces wasn't enough 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢

  2. Justice Ginsburg; a former attorney for the ACLU, writing in a previous case.  From cornell.edu:

    Justice Ginsburg wrote that “[s]urely a most familiar meaning is, as the Constitution’s Second Amendment … indicate[s]: ‘wear, bear, or carry … upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose … of being armed and ready for offensive or defensive action in a case of conflict with another person.’ ”

    “..in the clothing or in a pocket” is carrying concealed.

    So why has she and all of SCOTUS continued to deny Americans their unalienable rights while still being persecuted by state laws which infringe upon said right, when she herself has stated that it is otherwise?

    I mean if the 2nd Amendment doesn't allow the Uninfringed right to carry concealed, then every state that allows Constitutional Carry is in violation of the precedent set by the 2nd Amendment and must have policies to govern and restrict said concealed carry supported by classes and training, yet no such reality exists….

    So again, why has RBG and all of SCOTUS failed to protect the American people against Tyrannical State laws which Infringe upon citizens Unalienable Rights?

  3. Saw this film earlier today. Being in the legal profession I admired the film for portraying the law a bit closer to what it looks like than most other coverage in media. It isn't pretty, it's stupid in the way it is black and white, but frankly as not only in the film, but in the profession itself whether you're an judge, an attorney, or a paralegal, words matter. It truly was a lively biopic of an iconic legal mind and honestly if you are a law student either in the lawyer or paralegal track or are wanting to consider going into this field in any capacity, I would recommend this film along with the Paper Chase, and Marshall.

  4. Looks absolutely dreadful – a celebration of radical-leftist feminism and anti-male rage. Democrats will swoon! Talking about their beloved icon as a Badass and other idiotic remarks

  5. What do you call 500 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean ? A good start.
    You can say the same thing for judges and politicians and actors and journalists. Self important, self absorbed, egomaniacal lunatics deep inside. The grave is the great equalizer. And so is all out civil war. The marxist media, DC, NYC, Chicago, the West coast, and hollywood/pedowood is where most of the demon-rat communists work and call home.
