  1. Given the gender discrimination case you cite, regarding equal protection under the 14th Amendment, is it not gross hypocrisy to make such a ruling, especially given the military nature of the training involved, while completely ignoring the gender specific(male) requirement to register with Selective Service upon 18th birthday? Consider these still in existence penalties: What Happens If You Don’t Register for Selective Service. If you are required to register and you don’t, you will not be eligible for federal student aid, federal job training, or a federal job. You may be prosecuted and face a fine of up to $250,000 and/or jail time of up to five years.

  2. Over the past two days, I see so many news articles describing this woman as a “Saint”. What did she achieve for US? We see more freedom for LGBT. She was a Zionist and put in that position by the Jewish power that runs US Senate. Please don’t push it!

  3. With all due respect to the late Justice, no one should be actively sitting on the nation’s highest court at the age of 87. Just as Jefferson thought it was a bad idea, it goes to show the absurdity of lifetime tenure to the federal bench.
