Posted on 06/29/2012 11:26:07 AM PDT by Anti-Hillary
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is joking that hell be spending some time in an impregnable fortress after casting the decisive vote upholding President Barack Obamas health care law. Responding to a question about his summer plans, Roberts quipped that he thought his planned trip to Malta to teach a class was a good idea. He delivered the joke Friday at a federal court conference at a posh Pennsylvania resort. Roberts declined to answer a question about the landmark opinion issued Thursday. But he says he hopes the court will be remembered for protecting equal justice under the law. Roberts was speaking in Farmington, Pa., at a conference hosted by the Judicial Conference of the District of Columbia Circuit.

Roberts should resign in shame.
:: protecting equal justice under the law. ::
Ah that great ideal of communism, “equal justice”; where everyone shares the same miserable conditions of poverty and servitude.
You aren’t funny, Roberts, you POS!!
He killed his “legacy” and he knows it.
Shun the bastard at public events. Persona non grata. A total failure.
His "legacy" will be the "Roberts Tax."
Oh yah....he’s a real comedian.
What does this monstrosity have to do with equal justice?
Congress has exempted themselves from this equal justice. Do the justices have to go before death panels? How about SEIU members or illegals who get it all without having to pay for it? Tell me more about equal justice.
Losing one's liberty isn't funny, Justice Roberts.
But keep cracking wise - you don't have to live in the world you and the progressives are creating for the rest of us.
Michael Savage is right...This guy’s epilepsy meds were warping his mind and still are. This POS thinks its all a goof
Very funny, you miserable traitor.
To add insult to injury, he apparently considers this a joking matter.
Yuckin’ it up with other federal judges...
Roberts shot his legitimacy in the butt pretty good too.
He thinks creating institutionalized slavery is protecting equal justice under the law. A law where not all citizens are expected to pay equally and some not at all? He truly is insane and twisted.
He is not even brave enough to be honest. Anyone who actually thought he was coerced or trying to do some underhanded favor to the cause of freedom should think twice now. He has gone in front of the press with this drivel which means he is proud of what he has done.
Bingo! What it really means is not justice, but oppression.
Its hard to hide when you will be attending all those cocktail parties that you willn now be invited to Jonny.
Can you hide from Karma?
T’ain’t funny, McGee.
Damn, all along I thought they were supposed to interpret and uphold the Constitution of the United States. Must have been those ancient history classes I took in high school.
Hell, even the liberals who sided with this guy thought his decision and rationale was idiotic.
f-N son of a bitch. Right now I hate him more than I do Obama, which I honestly thought wasn’t possible.
Well, reading that makes me want to hurl and cry at the same time. Jerk. May he rot in hell with the rest of them.He has succeeded in making those of us in The TEA Party even angrier than we were when DeathCare was rammed through. Traitors will rue all these days that trampled our Constitution. One thing after another. Amnesty. Executive CYA Order. Mandate becomes a Tax after it was “absolutely not at tax-Hussein quote”. Roberts just makes it a tax and says OK it’s Constitutional? Screw him and the doofus that nominated him.
I think I’m still safe in not hating Justice Thomas, right? Or is he really a crap weasel too?
Thomas is solid. Hell, Roberts made Kennedy look like a patriot.
If I wrote what I would like to say to Roberts I would be banned.
Not yet. This country can ill afford to have Van Jones or Hillary Clinton as Chief Justice.
What a libtard *#@% scker. No repentance on his part. Hope he burns in hell.
Roberts, you tossed away a history of American freedom and individual liberty, delivering it to statist, government control. One way or another, you’ll pay for that.
So, burn in hell, you disgusting traitor!
Oh yeah real funny making me a slave to the federal government the rest of my days.
Bush’s pander selection for AG vetted Roberts. I’d love to hear what he thinks of this entire mess.
Maybe once he is in Malta, he will feel free to reveal who blackmailed him into making his “ruling” and then rescind the whole thing. But even if he doesn’t Obamacare’s days are numbered because the PEOPLE will not cooperate!
The real test for Obamacare is not the Supreme Court. The REAL test will come once they start setting up death panels which, I hear will be very soon. How the panelists will be chosen and what they will base their life-or-death decisions on is shrouded in as much mystery as the birthplace of the Glorious Leader. I am told that we won’t even know who is on the panels that will hear our cases! We’ll apparently have to plead for our lives from behind partitions while the “wise ones” grill us about why our lives are justified!
How will people react to all of this? Could get UGLY!
Has anyone noticed how ‘classy’ the repubs have been handling the zero ‘victory’? I can just imagine the noise the rats would be making if the decision was the other way around.
HoHoho, the pig fooled those Americans!
I’ll second that emotion. He IS worse. He twisted the knife that Hussien already stabbed The Constitution with for the last 4 years.
After all..why not? the Federal Overlords are exempt from the mess anyway?
Flee the Peons and Peasants Johnny Boy...all the way to Malta....
What a bastard!!! I’m glad that this dirty p*ick can laugh. Bob
Let’s just get the damn thing repealed. That begins by defeating Obamugabe and making Harry Reid the senate MINORITY leader.
If I wrote what I wanted and how I feel at this time I would have a visit from the the SS....
Call me greedy, but I hope to see retribution in the living years...and the afterlife.
Hell, they might even be held accountable! No, speaking up is all downside for them.
wow, what a comedian...
i’m surprised he didn’t say this:
“Let me be clear, my incoherent ruling was the right thing to do”
He knows what this means for America, the Pain, Agony, Suffering, Collapse and Civil Strife this will eventually cause.
But he also knows the pleasure that the Media and D.C. Elite will now bestow upon him when he is in their presence.
I hope you enjoy that sweet caressing you get from your Tyranny loving buddies in D.C. Roberts, because you will be cursed by every true American until the end of time for your betrayal!
Repubics screwing America now...Ain’t it grand?
You a-hole. It’s so funny to have led us over the cliff to full-fledged banana republic. It’s so funny that those of us who have worked and studied hard our entire lives, now must line up with the lazy moochers and illegals and “take a number.” Death panels are particularly funny.
I don’t care if you POS were threatened, or your family, or ANY excuses. You just took down 305 million with your own GREED and crying like a girl. All because you view yourself as a king or god. One man is nothing and may you reap what you sow.
I guess I'm most p*ssed off at the GOP leadership, who truly are worthless. They should be raising holy hell today.
