Do they make the point that this Malta trip has been on the docket for some time now and not a spur of the moment thing? He’s teaching a two week course at the University of Malta’s Foundation for International Studies. Hype sells no matter which side the aisle one sits on.

I hope he enjoys Malta so much that he stays there.

He does us less harm there than here.

Timing of the announcement of the decision wasn’t a spur of the moment thing either. Convenient escape for the coward.

Robert's decision was devastating to me as well as many patriots here.

But if there's one thing I've learned in my (sometimes I think too many) years, it's that once a decision has been made, or a law passed, we can bitch and moan all we want but bitching and moaning is a waste of time .. it accomplishes nothing but a display at how well (or badly) we use words.

The Roberts rule is in, the tax is in, and zero is a criminal usurping bastard.

I'm focussing on November.

The ball-less gop (lower case intentional) won't impeach, so we need to remove the gop that's useless, keep the ones that are good, bring more into the system, take the White House back (fumigate extensively), get the Senate and keep the House of Rep.

If we're gonn'a use a lot of words, let's let them be productive words to reclaim OUR America ... the one we loved before all this hopey/changey shit.

I use for my mental imagery the Founding Fathers and Norman Rockwell.

My feeling is, it is best to document all reasonable aspects.

I meet SOOOOOOOOOOO many uninformed people on a daily basis, that it astonishes me.

What we all take for granted as “common knowledge” here on FR, I’d say 98% of the country is ignorant of, uninformed about or absolutely apathetic about.

EXACTLY the reason why we need to talk to people outside of our comfort zone.

I have a sweet PT job doing dealer exchanges for a Mercedes dealership ... GREAT supplimental to my pitiful SS.

Of all the people I've met that are essentially ignorant, I think car salespeople .. maybe ALL in sales ... are the worst.

I remember when I was an in home cemetery salesman, and when you're commission only, you're pumped FULL of PMA.

With THAT reverberating between your ears, politics is an intrusion and interference.

The briefcase is too sharp, compaRITIVELY AND EVEN rOBERTS HIMSELF ... THE WHOLE COMPOSITION JUST SEEMS ... OUT OF WHACK.

To coincide with the decision? It wasn’t like nobody knew they’d be ruling on Obamacare was it?

Malta? To teach a class? Pretty convenient.

CRR a quick search for religion in Malta finds the following:

The predominant religion in Malta is Christianity, with Roman Catholicism being the predominant denomination. Most Maltese claim to be Catholic and participate in Catholic religious services and the Constitution of Malta establishes Catholicism as the state religion. Catholicism is also present in various elements of Maltese culture.

Malta aside from being the old historical jumping off point for Crusaders having enough funds to hire ships is one of the world's primary places of merchant ship registration.

I used to own freighters 25 years ago and my first had Valletta on the stern to indicate home port.

Beautiful place...extremely historic and yes...very Catholic..nearly all native Maltese are Catholic.

it is one of the few places left in Christendom where abortion is illegal

very tightly packed on the main island

one caveat...women are pretty inaccessible there...like Sicily ...clannish about that to the point of intimidation

you find a girl there and she is likely a tourist or Brit resident

as a young shipping lad/owner while I soaked up the architecture and history and that usual turquoise Med water

I preferred the side attractions of Spain or Italy in that part of the world

You are quite right. I talk to the girls in the office, on a daily basis, on what’s been going on.

They have no idea what I’m talking about; therefore, I inform them.

My bff used to be the same as well. Lately, she’s been surprising me, bringing up a subject before I do. When she sees the shocked look on my face, she’ll say “after all these years of you talking, I started paying attention”.

My boss and I discuss politics on a daily basis. Lately, he’s been bringing up all this crap going on w/ patients.

He usually starts out with asking them what they do for a living, then asks how the economy has affected their business. We’ve been hit hard and he is doing all he can, as we are, to hang in there.

One trend we have noticed.....people are now paying for their root canals w/ credit cards instead of checks. A couple of years ago, checks were the main source, now it is credit cards.

Don't give a damn what his reasons were...he is a traitor and belongs with the rest of the damned in the Traitors Hall of Shame. Traitors come from all walks of life, in all shapes and colors. Roberts is a big boy and he should know what the stakes are in his position as Chief Justice. He chose to join the left, and betray We The People, the Constitution and OUR liberty and freedom, for the legacy, the glory, the pat on the back by obozo. This from the same man who sat in the audience at the State of the Union address, mouthing the words, “you lie”, as obozo chided and ridiculed the SCOTUS. This from the man whose office would be publicly ridiculed for all to see and hear by this leftist “president”, and who then turns around and aids and abets obozo. This is a kiss-azz, despicable loser who needs to be loved and accepted, who needs to be a hero, who wants a legacy. We must shame him...and pray that his conscience does its job.
