The Democrats will lose the short-term battle for the future of the Supreme Court following the resignation of Judge Anthony Kennedy. But in the end, they could only win.
The naming of Kennedy's replacement means more than the split between the Democratic and Republican parties. It's about the future of Roe Vs. Wade and the right of a woman to vote.
This is a point of contention that goes beyond party lines. It is not just democratic women who value this right – many Republican women are afraid of the religious right to ban abortion.
We can hold heated discussions about conservative court rulings over union membership or travel bans from Muslim-dominated countries. But nothing is comparable to the question of choosing a woman.
The Democratic minority in the Senate is unlikely to be able to block President Trump's nomination of anti-Roe v. Wade. But even if Trump goes his own way, the Democrats win because they have a record of what's at stake on the Supreme Court bench this fall ̵
Shocker? A supporter of Bernie Sanders defeats House Democrats # 4 and sends shock waves through the county – but it should not.
Times are changing, and so is the district of New York Rep. Joe Crowley splitting between Queens and the Bronx. What was once Archie Bunker's neighborhood now looks like the United Nations during a lunch break.
Crowley has been in office for nearly 20 years and has had impressive liberal credentials and more money than God. He was even shopped as a possible successor to Republican MP Nancy Pelosi. But he got into the national upswing and drifted too far away from his district.
The woman who beat him on Tuesday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is a 28-year-old who until recently was a bartender. It turned out she had two things the Democrats desperately need: a message and limitless energy applied to her district.
As she said in "Morning Joe," after she won the Primary, she was "laser-oriented." Economic, social, and racial dignity for working-class Americans, especially those in Queens and the Bronx.
Appeal: London Breed, Mayor-elect Malia Cohen, President of the Board of Directors Naomi Kelly City Council Terri Jackson, Superior Judge of the San Francisco Superior Court.
From a senior point of view, lead African-American women
Filming time: "Incredibles 2." A fascinating story, albeit a bit on the easy side, yet all the greats are back from the original "Incredibles."
The greatest addition is a baby that is more interesting than any other superpower, the animation is fabulous, but bring a child.
"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom." The prehistoric animals are not nearly as scary as in previous installments It's still worth a few hours anyway, and maybe they'll do better on the scary front the next.
Gourmet Season: Any Woc I assume that people will search this column for true coverage of President's policies, bourgeois intrigues, voting. But that's not true, it turns out.
My readers want burger news.
The article from last week on my daily search for the perfect burger brought with it a barrage of emails, including many of people who say they've already found the sacred grill. Here are some of the best tips:
"Looking for a good burger, you should try Tarpys in Monterey, they have a Kobi Hamburger with Lobster on top! ($ 25) GOOD!" – Charles Speyerer
I live in San Jose and love the Habit Burgers, their Portabella Char Burger is, I think, the best burger I've ever had, I've tried some of their other burgers and really like them. "- Tom Smyth
" Do not forget to try a hamburger at absinthe on Hayes! "- Byron Nevins
" You must try JJ's Burgers in Novato Fabulous !! "- Ray Hollister
" For a while I thought nobody was Chez Maman could beat, but Epic could be better, however, the new Hamburger Mary's on Castro is surprisingly in the race! Damn good burgers there too. "- Kevin McCarthy
And then there was this one by Gary Rosenberg, that I value the most:
"My wife Angela Marti has before 10 Years ago made a hamburger tour of SF. She rated Cafe de la Presse (Bush / Grant) number one. I lost her to ovarian cancer (56 years old) last year. If you get a chance, look de la Presse Burger out as a scream to her. And who knows, maybe it's still good. "
