      Their ruling is going to cause violence…..

      This is the worst Supreme Court in my lifetime…..

      Law Schools will be talking about it for centuries.

        This was outrageous. I need to delve deeper, but this is a very dangerous precedent in this current climate. It will not be replaced with intimidation laws that might have happened in reasonable political climates. Not now. They have legalized intimidation, and now all these nuts have guns as well. I don’t have words to express my outrage.

    Men who viciously protest women exercising their right to abortions are despicable. They seem to believe terrorizing women will stop abortions.

    I’ve been getting sick photoshopped pictures from men on Twitter of babies being mutilated in their effort to make sure I understand I’m a murderer. What utter nonsense.

    If you don’t have a uterus yet are protesting a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body, you’re a disgusting pig.

      I’m becoming more and more convinced that lifetime appointments to the bench are a mistake.

      This is awful. I have lost faith in these people since Dec 9th, 2000 when then the Rehnquist Court stopped the FL presidential Election re-count.

      This Roberts Court, a Constitutional Branch is Not allowed to make law…..yet they have in giving themselves a 100ft buffer zone from protectors. They are okay with allowing some distance from crazies like that KS so called Church Group…..who go around tormenting dead troops’ families trying to bury their loved ones. But 35ft in today’s ruling is a freaking bridge too far?

      I am sick and tired of these selective injustices. I blame O’Connor. Had she not resigned……Alito would Never have made it to the SCOTUS. I blame Rehnquist for he allowed Scalia to inject themselves in the Dec 9th, 2000 FL re-count fiasco.

      NW, this is a good tweet. Gives one a perspective of this distance and the unfairness of the ruling

    Germany has 63% of possession. That won’t get it done for us.

    With both games 1/4 way done, things are just like we would like them to be. If only it could stay that way.

    It’s raining in Recife, Brasil and the game is being played? Wow! The Stadium must have some strong Lightening Protective Gears?

    So Portugal takes a 1-0 lead, which is good for US.

  20. June 26, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    Portugal ahead 1-0. Which ESPN says is good news for US.

    I don’t see Germany blowing the US out in this weather, so a Portugal win even by a couple of goals is fine.

    I am watching, but it makes me nervous. I wish our guys would do what I tell them! Go there! NO, don’t go there! I wish I were playing. I would know exactly what to do! I would just run right down there and kick the ball in that net thingy——surprising everyone! Gooooaaaaallllllll

    Well, about the only thing that could be better at the half is US to be up by a goal. But quite pleased with how it is going right now. Now to take a breather for a short while.

    Okay y’all. Leaving shortly to take my kitty to the vet. Praying it is not for the last time, but I just don’t know. It’s been feeling like a kitty hospice here the past few weeks, so. Any thoughts and prayers would be welcomed, as this is hard to do alone.

    ////////Seriously? Matt Lauer, the serial wife cheating toad is asking in 2014 this wickedly crude question? Women should demand for this type of idiocy to STOP, Now!/////////

    In a question no doubt asked of every male guest on the Today show, cohost Matt Lauer asked General Motors CEO Mary Barra if her chief executive duties got in the way of her parental ones.

    β€œYou said in an interview not long ago that your kids said they’re going to hold you accountable for one job, and that is being a mom,” he asked. β€œGiven the pressure at General Motors, can you do both well?”

    β€œI think I can,” she replied. β€œI have a great team…and I have a wonderful family and a supportive husband, and I’m pretty proud of my kids the way they’re supporting me in this.”

    Do these soccer games last 4 hours, like other American sports? Just asking.
