2. Agree. In the same interview he quotes Jefferson in relation to Barrett.

"We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

The idea that any of these judges, Barrett especially, as holders of "originalism" is refuted by the founders themselves. Here's Jefferson's quote in fuller context:

I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.


Add that to her statement that she doesn't believe in following precedent, that she only considers her ruling's effect on her own child, and we know what she'll rule.

5. I'm sorry. You live in an environmental jewel of a country.

Doesn't mean that its leadership trusts its people.
