    @lay_kulast95 The joke, which you obviously failed to comprehend, is that the conspiracy theory you’re espousing is so old it’s the basis for a film from 1968. A truly exceptional film, but I don’t suggest you watch it lest you start buying up mineshafts. No reputable source has ever found evidence that fluoridation of the drinking water is unsafe, possibly ineffective, but not unsafe.

    World War II Veterans

    Definitely. Likely still hundreds. Just off the top of my head John Hemingway, the last of ‘the few’, served the entire war.

    Tuskegee Airmen

    It is rather obvious when you look at @Ulitzer95’s list that it is only of airmen with wiki pages. Please try to keep up.

    Political frailty - he headed a major executive department when it was in its heyday and was a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient.

    I don’t know - that user who was really keen on reminding us that not everyone lives to 100 and not everyone surpasses it racked up quite a few in a short time.

    Fair point. Apologies for the dig. I don’t agree that I’m merely relying on precedent. This court has shown itself to have its fair share of textualists and pragmatists and I absolutely do not believe that Reed would be overturned. Further more the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Pay Act along with many other congressional acts would remain in place which ban sex discrimination in both the public and private spheres. The ERA that we have now “ready to go” is both redundant and poorly thought out. No one has ever done a decent job explaining how it would not create a sex-blind jurisprudence. Laws meant to support the advancement of women in society would be undermined; just as anti-discrimination statutes are being used to dismantle affirmative action. Even Title IX would be compromised by the ERA. Furthermore the ERA only bans discrimination by the government. It’s a lousy law. Even Justice Ginsburg thought it should be thrown out in favor of something more nuanced. There are many sexual disparities in US society but the ERA won’t fix them, and it may even exacerbate them.

    Reread your comment. Something like equal rights for women is already there. Regardless of what Justice Scalia said in an interview, I know of no opinion of his or anyone else’s that presumes Reed v. Reed to be an incorrect judgement. Also, the concept of sex has even been expanded by this court to include sexual orientation https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bostock_v._Clayton_County#Majority_opinion Go back to law school.

    Sorry. Was this actively wanting? Not really a hard opinion to come by among rationally minded people, is it? Today was the first time I’ve actively encountered a Putin apologist/denialist.

    Agreed. The internet has plenty of places for trolls - we have no business allowing this site to become a platform for idiocy of this magnitude. This site has a purpose, and it’s for weirdos like us to talk about celebrity deaths. Not to spread misinformation.

    Sharpton also looks horrible. He could pass for someone who looks good in their early to mid eighties but absolutely terrible for someone not yet seventy.
