God should punish those who kept this magnificent mind off our highest court. What a sad loss for our country when morons fell for Gregory Peck's diatribe against him during the nomination hearings! For those of you too young to remember this debacle, Peck was considered an expert on Constitutional law because he played the lawyer in the movie, "To Kill a Mockingbird." Yes, that's how PATHETIC our Senate was. We'll see in the coming nomination battle if it's improved any, or whether Michael Moore will be called as an "expert witness" by our leftist enemies.

I was amazed at the time that a man like Bork would have so much love of country as to allow himself to be subjected to the idiotic inanities of the U.S. Senate. If I had been Judge Bork, I would have stood up and told 'em to take their court and put it where the sun don't shine. And Judge Bork is smart enough to tell them that in a way that they wouldn't understand for a couple of days.

With that kind of legal mind and training, Judge Bork could easily make 3x the money at any big-name law firm in the country.

Our country lost out by not having Robert Bork of the USSC.

At the Constitutional Convention A slaveholder spoke and
declared all slaveholders tyrants. He went on to say
"As natons cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world ,so they must be in this; By inevitable chain of causes and effects ,Providence punishes national sins by national clamaties." (Aug.22,1787 George Mason) Affirmed on
Jan.27,1788 by Luther Martin.Those who would deny we were
established a Christian nation -can only neglect the facts.
God's time is not our own. For history records that America was visited by a bloody Civil War over the very issue of the national sin of permitting the slave trade continue.
(among other causes equaly relavent to that time )My point being we live in a nation that has chosen leaders who do not
rule in fear of God--or man. And I suspect th etime is short for as Jesus taught every kigdom divided against itself is brought to desolation;every city or house divided against itself shall not stand." We have allowed a
court erect a false wall of separation that has divided the political house erected by Dr.Franklin and his peers,
and levening the whole loaf of American government-to extend even to divinding the nation. The article written is excellent the heartbreak is too few of my fellow Americans will ever read it--and fewer still will find it in themselves to act.

I think they're even more pathetic now! And when I hear Republicans concerned about 'the reputation of the Senate'! Feh! That horse left the barn a long time ago!

I didn't know that about Gregory Peck. What was an actor doing testifying at hearings to confirm a Supreme Court Justice? No wonder actors have such a highly overinflated idea of their worth and importance and grasp of political matters.
