Skip to comments.Patton: Will John Roberts Betray Us Again?
Posted on 03/28/2013 8:24:30 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
In the tortured justification for his vote to sustain Obamacare last summer, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts pointed to Congress's authority to levy taxes an argument not even put forward by its advocates. (They, in fact, had argued that it was not a tax.) As a direct result of Roberts's folly, the stark reality of Barack Obama's "fundamental transformation of America" creeps closer each day.

Is there a mustach in Mexico? [I stole that one from Barry Weiss].
More worried about Kennedy on this one.
Somebody on the left has “the goods” on him,
and he’s not man enough to step up in front of the cameras
and tell the nation about it and refuse to resign.
I dont see it in these two cases as they are about over-turning laws. He refused to overturn O care and will refuse to overturn DOMA and the CA referendum is my guess.
Yes... he will.
Please . Pray . HARD !
Alito, Scalia and Thomas will do the right thing. Ginsburg, Kagan, Sotomayor and Breyer are guaranteed to do the opposite. It will come down to Roberts and Kennedy.
In order for saniity to prevail both must reject gay marriage. That won't happen.
the troubling part is that both all the justices and all the lawyers refered to homosexuals as a status not a behavior.
We are discussing a BEHAVIOR not a status. We outlaw all sorts of behavior. We have federal pot laws, we have (since 1913) federal immigration laws, we have sex slave laws.
The justices have bought the “gay gene” myth. Also it is apparent from roberts comment on politicians falling all over themselves to “go pro-homosexual” the justices are watching primarily msnbc and cnn and only readig the NYT.
The conservative opinion is not represented anywhere.
AND THIS IS WHY “CONSERVATISM” MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST BE MORE THAN SIMPLY ECONOMIC LIBERTARIANISM.
Why is it that only conservative justices turn liberal once they get on SCOTUS and not the otherway around?
Actually, the libertarian position...proper libertarian position....woud be to protect the rights of those who are already under the contract of marriage...and to uphold what THAT contract means.
And BTW, there is no such thing as SIMPLY ECONOMIC liberty. If you don’t own your property, you don’t own yourself. It’s called the “sanctity of life OUTSIDE the womb.”
John Roberts’ vote on Obamacare paired with Kagen’s appointment and approval to the bench has, to me, made the court meaningless.
Frankly, I don’t give a damn what they say.
Because they live and eat and play and drink cocktails and join health clubs and got to PTAs and grocery stores IN WASHINGTON where you can’t “fit in” unless you are liberal.
This will go like everything else. The on-going news will be good. “They asked great questions, gave the lawyers hell.” Then voted for it anyway.
Do Bears crap in the woods?
Cause and effect. Conservatives do not use thuggery, blackmail, mudslinging or threats to get things done.
All those are de riguer for the Left
