watching THE WINTER SOLDIER yet again. i love this dumb movie so much.
the opening sequence is so good! chris evans and anthony mackie have so much chemistry!
the first action set piece is like the metal gear solid 2 movie we’ll never get!
every time i see the peggy scene i get mad all over that they canceled agent carter
when you start to think about it, it’s crazy that a marvel movie of all things has one of the best action sequences of the last decade (yes i just watched the elevator fight)
if nothing else this is a movie where both garry shandling and robert redford say “hail hydra”
i say this every time i tweet about this movie, but the MCU needs more cobie smulders

americans have long recognized a right to ones labor, the populist movement claimed a right to democratic input into the nature of the economy, the works progress administration during the depression was arguably rooted in this sense of a right to decent employment.
ones relationship to labor (their own or others) is a critical area of political contestation in american political thought, and the idea that one has a right to a decent living is very much a part of that discourse.

my writing workflow:

1. collect and organize research in a designated note in apple notes

2. write first draft by hand in a notebook

3. type up draft on ipad and print out for a second pass.

4. transfer final edits to ipad.

5. convert to a .docx & send to editor.
i find it much easier to get words and thoughts out by hand, and the process of typing it up further helps me structure and revise what i am trying to say. printing helps me see things i may have missed.

given that the constitution was effectively rewritten by the reconstruction amendments, it would be great to see a supreme court nominee say something like “I will interpret the Constitution as it was understood in 1870.”
let’s resurrect the privileges and immunities clause of the 14th amendment baby
the authors of the 13th amendment sought to eliminate the “badges of slavery” and the second section gives Congress the power to “enforce this article by appropriate legislation.” let’s take it for a spin!

one basic takeaway i’ve had from reading, at this point, a couple thousand pages on the writing and ratification of the constitution is that those bamas didn’t even agree amongst themselves what the Constitution meant at the time of ratification
ah yes, the ignorant take is that “the constitution was a political document that sought to build a working mechanism for self government while satisfying a large number of mutually exclusive interests” and the smart take is “no it’s not”
mine isn’t an argument about legislative history, it’s an argument about the political disputes around ratification as well as the subsequent decade of american politics.

looking forward to the remake of gump in 20 years where it turns out gump did 9/11
Gump makes his way on The Apprentice and tells Donald Trump “you should try being president sometime.”
