saw something on facebook that really pissed me off because I worked at McDonalds for three years.
In an episode of the sitcom Roseanne from 1989 the characters talk about being paid 8 dollars an hour and how they can barely afford to live. 1989.
$15 an hour cause you’ve got better things to do.
do you think judge’s robes are an obsolete holdover or are they appropriate in an egalitarian republic?Saturday, March 1st, 2014
I am a history-lover, so I’m all for tradition. Plus, there is a reason for the black robes — Supreme Court Justices are completely nude underneath them while deliberating.
Okay, maybe that part isn’t true. But there is a reason — the black robes represent the neutrality that all judges supposedly bring to each case.
Actually, I always thought it was cool that Chief Justice Rehnquist wore gold stripes on the sleeves of his robes to distinguish himself as first-among-equals. He was pretty widely criticized and soundly ridiculed for doing so and Chief Justice Roberts didn’t extend the tradition, but it was kind of a funny, “Guess who the Chief Justice is, motherfuckers?” move.
