When the Supreme Court rules it is legal to use lethal Defensive Force against the people and companies that pump poisons into our water, air, and food....that will be a historic day.

I would be a very happy woman if Scalia and Thomas would extricate themselves from the court. Neither bring any good to the office and actually hinder progress.

MyRandomName: Always amazes me How liberals ask the USSC to defer to Congress in all aspects... except for DOMA. That was your primary reasoning for ACA. At least try to be slightly consistent.


It always amazes me that you think the voices in your head represent actual liberals.  SCOTUS is a check on Congress' power - nobody should expect or desire complete deference from the highest court in the land.  If Congress passed an unconstitutional law, I expect SCOTUS to strike it down in some fashion; if Congress passed a constitutional law, I expect SCOTUS to leave it alone.

R.A.Danny: tudorgurl: So basically, as long as the university is using AA to ensure a diverse student pop, it's ok?

Until the actual use is argued which somehow it wasn't or something.


So, are they like, avoiding making concrete decisions on technicalities here, or something? That would seem a bit cowardly.

loveblondieo: tudorgurl: What would you consider the "right direction"?

She should be with her legally adopted parents. Her biological mother even signed the rights over to them. He was not a part of their lives and refused to even give child support.


Absolutely correct.

PanicMan: loveblondieo: Another case I am looking forward to hearing the results on. This, I fear, will not go in the right direction.

I haven't heard of that one.  From reading the article, it sounds pretty shiatty for everyone involved.


I am really rooting for the adopted parents. The biological "father" didn't want anything to do with Veronica initially.

Your criticism is interesting, but I believe that your established history of dishonesty diminishes your credibility.

Scalia strongly disfavors the Court's ruling in Miranda v. Arizona, which held that a confession by an arrested suspect who had not been advised of his rights was inadmissible in court, and voted to overrule Miranda in the 2000 case of Dickerson v. United States, but was in a minority of two with Justice Clarence Thomas. Calling the Miranda decision a "milestone of judicial overreaching"

Fark them.

soupafi: Prop 8 won't have standing
DOMA is illegal


and IIRC the former means that California remains fabulous but the decision is not binding anywhere else, while the latter means that all states must recognize gay marriages entered into where such entrance is already legal, correct?

Any chance they might wimp out and push this back yet again?

I hope they do the right thing and then we will hear the teeth gnashing and lamentations of the conservatives. Civil rights should never be a "states' rights" issue.

SCOTUS will uphold DOMA and declare gays to be 3/5 people.
