Hi Justice Kagan!

#NotoriousRBG #RuthBaderGinsburg #Feminist
I understand you guys all admire Ruth Bader Ginsburg as much as I do. I ran across the following very interesting piece of info. Check it out!

First Linda Greenhouse, now Justice Kagan. Plagiarism from the likes of a New York Timesreporter doesn’t surprise me, but a justice of the United States Supreme Court? O tempora o mores!
Justice Kagan, plagiarizing at the New York City Bar.The New York City Bar Association recently hosted Justices Ginsburg and Kagan for the “annual Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Distinguished Lecture on Women and the Law,” which Justice Kagan delivered. The title of her lecture was “Justice Ginsburg’s Greatest Hits.” Hmm, why does that phrase sound so familiar? OH I know: Because I’ve written a series of posts on the GinsBlog titled “Ruth’s Greatest Hits”! Granted, only one of the cases she talked about was a case I’ve written about, but I’m still going to say that Elena Kagan plagiarized my blog.
And I know Justice Kagan knows about the GinsBlog—she mentioned it in her lecture! From the NYC Bar Association website: “‘As a ligitagor, and then as a judge, she changed the face of American anti-discrimation law,’ Justice Kagan said of Justice Ginsburg. ‘More than any other person, she can take credit for making the laws of this country work. And in doing so, she made possible my own career, and later on the careers of today’s devotees of the Notorious RBG Tumblr and the Ruth Bader GinsBlog.'” Honestly, why would a Supreme Court justice willingly refer to such garbage as this website?Justices Ginsburg and Kagan, and some other guys, at the NYC Bar, or whatever, I think….But as long as members of the Supreme Court are plagiarizing the GinsBlog, maybe I’ll try to write some more posts for the “Ruth’s Greatest Hits” series. (By the way, “Ruth’s Greatest Hits” includes everything RBG has ever done.)

UPDATE: Here’s video. It should start shortly before what is clearly the most important moment of Justice Kagan’s talk: when she mentions the GinsBlog! (14:11)

Long Live RBG!!!

#NotoriousRBG #RuthBaderGinsburg #Feminist
I understand you guys all admire the Notorious RBG just like I do. I came across the next very interesting blog. Sweet beans!

It’s the Baddest Bitch’s birthday, duh. RBG, aka Real Bad Gangsta, aka $$$upreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg turns 81 today. As she nears her middle age, I think it’s important to remind everyone that she will stay on the Court as long as she fucking wants to.
That car was filled with pundits telling RBG to retire. Good move, Justice.Each week seems to bring some new chump writing the same tired article about why Justice Ginsburg should retire because she’s “old” blah blah blah. Apparently these pundits think that octogenarians should just stop contributing to the world. Maybe RBG is at the top of her game because she’s 81. She’s not going to retire just because the Senate Republican caucus is filled with maniacs.

And why should RBG retire? Shouldn’t everybody be clamoring for Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito to step down considering that, you know, they are the ones bringing ruin to the country with their awful ultra-conservative opinions? Let’s keep the one who’s actually helping.

So happy birthday Justice Ginsburg!!! Thank you for continuing to serve our country even after a long career fighting for justice. I’m looking forward to the next 100+ years of your tenure on the Court!

Oh, and here, just for filler, is a 90-minute video from last fall of RBG speaking to Jeffrey Rosen at the National Constitution Center. I like what she says about Footnote 4. http://static.c-span.org/assets/swf/CSPANPlayer.1393874500.swf?pid=314892-1
