24 Looks like she's dying and relatives on the other side are welcoming her. My Dad had that dream shortly before he passed: saw his father and grandfather on the other side of a bridge and they were telling him it was time to cross over.

57 My guess is the lady in black looking on in a somewhat detached fashion is the Angel of Death, and the lady in white is an angel of mercy there to provide comfort for the journey.

58 Interesting work this morning. While many see the child as a girl I did not; rather a 19th century boy. And yes Light and Dark are the dominant themes as someone wrote above.

I was reminded of the Dylan Thomas story "The Rocking Horse Winner" (i belive that's the right name). Farewell little one.

61 His family was rich from sugar, so he spent his time in Paris. I like his naked women walking dogs better ...


There are many accounts of dying people seeing their (deceased) loved ones in the room, and speaking to them, or about them to others in the room. Some accounts claim they even "see dead people" that they didn't even know had died. ... I forget the term, "guides" maybe, sent to help "walk" people into the afterlife. --- that seems to be what might be going on here, idk. The white woman could be an angel ... other (dead) family in background? ... just guessing, I found nothing on this painting in my one minute search.

69 Makes me think of the song "Black Angel" by The Cult

A bit of a haunting tune. From the mid-80s album "Love" -- same album as their much better known song "She Sells Sanctuary".

70 Please tell me the figures in back aren't intended to be a Madonna and child representation. If so, Mary looks possessed.

I haven't looked it up but the front portion looks like an angel comforting a dying child. If so, mother, child and angel are all well rendered.

84 It's hard to tell but the image above the bed looks like a mother and child, but not Mary and Jesus. The artist seems to be referencing the Madonna and Child tho. The girl in white is not the mom, too young. The woman in black is also not the mom, the body language is wrong. A nurse/governess maybe? So I think that's the boy's mother in the vision welcoming her dying son to heaven. The dead mother becomes an image of Mary, the perfect mother. The boy is the vision is and image of Jesus, the innocent and beloved son. "The visit" is a "visitation" of not Mary, but a stand-in for what Mary represents.

112 I think the girl in white is the sister. I first thought she was a nun, but she looks like a bride. She's saying goodbye to a dying brother, too sick to go to her wedding. The brightness of the white dress could emphasize the purity of this relationship and the embrace. True family love. Perhaps the brother, as the man of the household, is giving his sister a final blessing before he dies. Jeez, this painting gets more sad the more I think about it.

I think the younger child is a boy, but it's hard to tell. The bride appears genuinely sorrowful, and the juxtaposition of the emotion of this scene, with that of her wedding... contrast that with brides who go stark raving mad if there's even one tiny thing about their wedding plan that isn't "perfect."

124 It's hard to tell but the image above the bed looks like a mother and child, but not Mary and Jesus. The artist seems to be referencing the Madonna and Child tho. The girl in white is not the mom, too young. The woman in black is also not the mom, the body language is wrong. A nurse/governess maybe? So I think that's the boy's mother in the vision welcoming her dying son to heaven. The dead mother becomes an image of Mary, the perfect mother. The boy is the vision is and image of Jesus, the innocent and beloved son. "The visit" is a "visitation" of not Mary, but a stand-in for what Mary represents.

132 It looks like a picture of a dying child, with the figure on the right being a sister either about to make her First Communion or about to get married. The woman in the back could be their mother. Or perhaps the mother has already died as well, as the lady is dressed in black for mourning. Life was hard in those days.

Yep.

The "capable of repetition yet evading review" exception to the mootness doctrine (used in cases such as Roe v.

I think it's worse than that, CN. The SCOTUS makes a lot of bad decisions and always has, and many bad decisions legitimize bad and illegal behavior. The SCOTUS is now, however, rubber-stamping anything a single side wants and using as a rationale that the side they consistently favor has street warriors that will do bad things and possible even put the SCOTUS justices themselves at risk.

That's far worse than the workaday corruption we're used to.

Men like Thomas are the exception that are so exceptional they almost don't exist. It doesn't matter what a justice does before his appointment, what he says during confirmation, what he has written about, what his opinions are or anything else. A vast bulk of them will tack toward increased state power no matter what it looks like going in. The Left is aligned with increased state power, and so the Court aligns with the Left. Those that do not behave this way are astonishingly rare and reduce to a rounding error.

191 So the SC had zero intentions of ever involving the court in any election issues. NONE. It doesn't matter what happens in elections, they are out of it. That includes the constitutional icons of Coney Barrett and Kavanaugh. Kagan and Sotomayor are so ideologically compromised that none of this is a surprise. Roberts is mentally limited and Breyer is probably entering age related decline.

Additionally, the threat of packing the court has worked beautifully . The majority don't want their power diminished so they will sidestep any issue that might really bring the Democrats on board with adding a dozen more justices.

There is zero reason now for any state AG or election clerk to follow their state's laws regarding elections. There is no recourse should any challenge lose in state courts.

By the way, didn't Roberts say he would fix PA's problems later if there were any? So once again, he lied.

It so hard to tell how old she is. And I don't know at which ages those Catholic sacraments were done back then. Nowadays, First Communion is around 6 or 7? Confirmation early teens. But who knows.

She COULD be a bride. Late teens, and short because of course she was. Almost everyone was... except Lincoln. And the nursemaid behind is probably 5' 4", and considered freakishly tall.

And in that painting, the little girl has hair like the girl (or boy) in The Visit painting. -- the puffy sleeve and bola like black thing around the neck still make me think it is a girl, but the hair is short, idk. --

___________________

There is an exception to the mootness doctrine when the issue is "capable of repetition yet evading review." And the SCOTUS is more than happy to use that exception when they want to create more rights for leftists.

For example, in the abortion case of Roe v. Wade, the plaintiff Jane Roe had already given birth to the baby by the time her case reached the SCOTUS. So the case should have been moot, right? No need to inquire about the appropriateness of an abortion for Jane for a baby she has already given birth to.

That's pretty interesting because when I searched all I saw were many pictures of fully clothed women in various settings.

I just like to see what else an artist has done. I didn't even know ddg had a "safe search" setting so I tried turning it off and there was no effect on the returned results. And google was what ever normal anonymous "moderate" safe search setting.

I wonder why the diff between google and ddg for this artist?

314 But the court said no, this type of case can keep coming up, so we need to resolve this issue now, even though this plaintiff's baby has already been born.

In this case, the election was over, but we know that the Dims won't stop cheating, and they will certainly pull out their handy bag of cheating tricks for the next election. And since Republicans can't challenge them before the election, and it will be too later after the election, these election issues, just like the abortion issues, are "capable of repetition yet evading review."

It's clearer on fiduciary responsibility. As a consequence management fuckups or malfeasance will be more clearly something you can sue over or not. A more nebulous environment where you've got room to make an emotional appeal is arguably more favorable for shareholders.

I notice whenever someone starts talking about reforming the judiciary, the Center-right loses interest, or starts blathering the 17th amendment. Its not enough to have the votes, you need smarts.

437 365 OK Horde, what's your opinion about Missouri as a place to land. ...

MO has, in my opinion, unacceptable weather and I couldn't stand living there. Like San Antonio. I like SA a lot, but could never live there.

But guns...we have lots and lots of guns...and you don't need a permit.

438 Fuckin' internet, man. Ad on my search engine (Qwant) came up when I was searching for an app my company wants me to install (after reading the TOS, it's a big 10-NOPE from me):

What's BDSM Sexting & How Do I Do It?

That's a helluva random ad.

I read this take a lot on here and other sites. How does this explain Kagan, Sotomayor, and Breyer? It doesn't. We need to accept that almost all law schools are idoctrination centers, accepting only those students whose records provide an insight into their desire to reduce America to a socialist, totalitarian state, and who are then fortified of that via their law school education. Look at the hundreds of law school professors who weekly are spearheading some kind of cancel culture on campus, support totalitarian ideals and efforts and are rewarded with praise and acclimation in the media.

Every younger lawyer and jurist is suspect. Putting 40-50 year old lawyers on the court is simply increasing the risk of destroying the Constitution by multitudes.

440 "the girl has already passed away following a visit from her angelic mother, who's also passed (hence the vision of her mother and her as a child above her head). The mother comes to her dressed in white. A relative is off to the left in mourning clothing because she's dead. Or not."

Fascinating. I assumed the woman in black was "death", and the woman in white was just a relative visiting. Your interpretation makes more sense.

445 This guy John Isaac in Texas explains the power thing pretty well. Big point, ERCOT was late to start rolling blackouts, and some plants were "tripped off" due to that error. (and it is not like flipping a breaker to go back on, takes days). iirc they also rolled the blackout to spots that were producing power, so they actually reduced generation even more. --
Also China and other foreign countries are coming in to make money off the huge "clean" mandates from DC ... he says at times the "clean" (but unreliable) producers can actually give away power, because they are still profitable due to huge subsidies. (he says they should at least be required to have their own back up, so they are dependable producers, not just selling when all is well) --To me, it is just yet another attack on USA, last chance for Liberty. (France may still allow more free speech, idk, but they are also even more globalist, for now, La Pen back on trial for speaking ill of Islamic Terrorism)

446 You know why we never get real conservatives. Because when there's an opening, the Right wing does NOT go to the Republican President and say "Appoint one of these four. We know they are Conservative based on their track record". Instead, everyone sits back and waits for the R President to make his pick and then cheerleads for the Choice. Then when they get on the court, they're always a disappointment. Well Duh!

447 Way to late to this one, but the Victorians did NOT pose dead people as if they were alive. They did have a neck brace type thing to help someone hold his head still for the long exposure, but which would be useless in supporting the dead weight of a body.
