Quick... somebody appeal last week’s Presidential election with this group of robes... maybe it will be unconstitutional that Obama won.
In the long term, human beings have only three strategies to cope with situations where groups in conflict must occupy the same geographic area:
1. Partition (violent or peaceful, often impossible and seldom successful).
2. Migration (always works but there must be somewhere to go).
3. Google "Hutus and Tutsies." 'Nuff said.
The Left imagines an infalliable fourth method that involves positive vibrations, rainbows, unicorns and Skittles, where everyone gets exactly what they want and still arrive home in time for supper. Sadly this scheme exists on in their fantasy world.
So according to the court, *everybody* has a right to the tool known as “affirmative action?”
That is going to be news to the many associations and government-funded organs for the advancement of segregation.
So according to the court, *everybody* has a right to the tool known as “union elections?”
The UAW is going to be surprised to discover that *all of us* now have the right to vote in union elections. *SO COOL!* We don’t need to prove that we are citizens, and we don’t need any photo ID, and we don’t need to prove that we work - because the unions certainly have no requirement that voters are working!
We can *ALL* vote now in *ANY* political election!
At the crack of dawn?
I think it officially opened at 7:20 am or thereabouts.
“.... is illegal because it presents an extraordinary burden to opponents who would have to mount their own long, expensive campaign through the ballot box to protect affirmative action.”
Hmmm...would think that should nullify a HUGE portion of Federal Regulatory Law...
If Blacks be in charge, WE BE DA MINORTEE!!! WHERE’S MY OBAMAFONE!!
Interesting to see this show up in an affirmative action case ~ but there you have it.
The 21st Century George Wallaces say:
Discrimination now! Discrimination forever!
“...Zimbabwe here we come...”
Well those Michigan fellas came down here during the 1861-65 war and laid waste to Tennessee and much of the South but NOW they don’t like the way the wind is blowing. We could have told you what it was like to live under Black bureaucrats as we did during the so-called Reconstruction.
As former CSA General Jubal Early said “What a gentle institution slavery must have been to have so well prepared the Negro for the ballot box.”
This poor suffering international group were the primary opponents of the ban.
Most folks making a claim of special privilege for hispanics really don't know their history since EVERYBODY born in the USA was born in a part of NA which was subject to the authority of the KIng of Spain.
While employed by the federal government I regularly put in appeals of my categorization when the boss would send in a form every year saying I was something else.
They'd ignore it.
One law suit by someone demanding privileges and being denied those privileges where Hispanic status is at issue would seem to be ripe.
Oreo Republican to boot.
I always laughed at the native born (”white”) South Africans who would try to claim being an “African-American” here in the US. Drove the HR folks nutz. LOL
This has to be by affirmative action lawyer/judges. To have a mindset that says one part of society must have unburdened rights over another part of society with burden of need for voting is preposterous. Only from a distorted view of social justice could such a decision be made. If possible this needs to try for remedy higher up.
Note that Mrs. HorseFace Ketchup JF’nK is an African-American.
I’m already e-mailing tweeting it to every screaming conservative I can think of who has a radio show.
What an insane ruling. Losing at the ballot box is unfair?
How the hell can a US District oourt strike down a law that requires everyone be treated equally? (rhetorical question)
