“The patient is where it all begins and where it all ends,” says Kim McCleary, president & CEO of the CFIDS Association of American. As a leader in the chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS) community, Kim is also an advocate for a more patient-centered approach to healthcare and medical research. “I know very few people who are 100 percent healthy,” says Kim. Realizing that health is the common denominator of all humans, she knows that we all need to advocate for the way we’re cared for.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “Mr. Rein, you keep emphasizing over and over again in your brief and you said it a couple of times this morning. Congress was well aware that [voter] registration was no longer the problem. This legislative record is replete with what they call second generation devices. Congress said up front: We know that the registration is fine. That is no longer the problem. But the discrimination continues in other forms.”
Justice Stephen Breyer: “I don’t know what they’re [Congress] thinking exactly, but it seems to me one might reasonably think this: It’s an old disease, it’s gotten a lot better, but it’s still there. So if you had a remedy that really helped it work, but it wasn’t totally over, wouldn’t you keep that remedy?”
Chief Justice John Roberts: General, is it — is it the government’s submission that the citizens in the South are more racist than citizens in the North”
Justice Kagan: Well, that’s a big, new power that you are giving us, that we have the power now to decide whether racial discrimination has been solved? I did not think that fell within our bailiwick.”
Zip-lining off a tall building is how “the bachelor” measures trust. That’s such bullshit. Toasting a bagel with the right amount of smear is the true test.
