Posted on 06/13/2013 9:21:05 AM PDT by lbryce
Eight months after attorneys for Abigail Fisher argued in front of the Supreme Court that the University of Texas' affirmative action admissions policy discriminates against white students, the justices still have not handed down their decision in the potentially paradigm-shifting case.
The unusual delay has many court-watchers stumped, though as with everything Supreme Court-related, all explanations for the wait are, at best, educated guesswork.

Winkler guesses the decision is taking so long because the liberal justices are writing lengthy dissents to the conservative judges' sweeping decision.*SNIP* "I think the more likely explanation is simply that dealing with tough issues requires a lot of thought and care," said Gail Heriot, a law professor at the University of San Diego.
Why is 'affirmative action' a legislative relic if there ever was one, a vestigial, anachronistic remnant whose time has come and gone still being utilized in a manner which wreaks havoc with people's lives, having earned their coveted place in society by being the best and the brightest only to have it usurped by those who misguidedly believe they have the right to interfere, create priorities based on racial criteria over that of merit and ability?
The left-wing, liberal holier-than-thou attitude at implementing racial quotas is wrong as it is immoral,patently unfair.
That in 2013, we still employ the archaic, illegal approach in deciding who in society will attain achievement and success by the people's very own criteria that affirmative action so egregiously intrudes upon is unfair to all, everyone.
must be some more blackmailing going on since they spied on the judges.
Hey Roberts what you say?
John Roberts received another 11th hour phone call. He’s now undecided.
Traitor Roberts is likely being black-mailed again and is busy writing another lame, cr@p sandwich opinion.
You don’t suppose the white house is calling the justices and deliberately interfering with their deliberations and destroying the separation of powers inherent in the Constitution?
The people who turned the irs against their enemies, and who are giving jihadis a free pass and who are collecting all communications would NEVER do that.
The justices want to leave the ruling until the day they get out of town for vacation. That way they are gone for the coming Sharpton/Jackson riots.
That has to be it. Lady Justice is no longer blind.
They actually are at a loss of how to rule with a straight serious face, that again, affirmative action is necessary in this day and age of BET, NAA Colored People, United NEGRO College Fund, New Black Panther Party, Trayyyyyyyvon Martin, OJ, a BLACK President, a Black Attorney General, black-black-black everybody in government. Too much of it will not only keep pissing off whites (they really don’t care), but also piss of the Mexicans even more.....oh my....what to do...what to do...
NSA phones have been quite busy lately
Roberts is sweating bullets, worrying that the Beltway crowd may say mean things about him.
Yes, it takes time to re-write an opinion to make it mean the opposite of what one originally intended.
Yeh they just called Roberts and asked a few questions about how he adopted those two kids from Ireland.
Illegal adoptions create such terrible complications.
It would go against Holder’s people, who have been known to riot. Much like nothing can be said against the ROP as they have been known to riot. This is the reason white Christian TEA party types get kicked around. There are no consequences for doing so.
I have it on good authority that the delay is to allow that crap maggot Roberts to write the majority opinion, making the legal argument that affirmative action is a tax on white people, and as such, is perfectly constitutional.
The big Michigan affirmative action case is coming up in the fall to decide if the will of the people matters at all.
As tempting as it is to believe this is another blackmail scenario, I believe the blackmail pattern revolves around cases that expand the surveillance state, rather than pushing a particular agenda.
I don’t think Roberts was blackmailed over Obamacare because the blackmailer wanted to force everyone to buy healthcare. I think he was blackmailed because the legislation gives the government all of our medical records.
Same with the decision regarding DNA swaps for arrests.
Even the amnesty bill isn’t about the illegals. It’s about the biometric ID tucked within the bill.
I don’t think this case contains anything relevant to the surveillance police state, so I don’t think it will involve itself here.
The Supreme Court will rule in such a way as to allow Affirmative Action to continue. Without Affirmative Action, which gives advantages to certain groups while placing obstacles in front of other groups, the federal government goal of trying to create near equal outcomes for America’s diverse groups will become an impossibility. Granted, equal outcomes for America’s diverse groups is an impossibility anyway because different people have different skills, but the prevailing federal government view of the past half century is that people are equal so outcomes will be equal once discrimination is countered via legislation. If Affirmative Action is eradicated the divide between group outcomes will become greater because the government will no longer be tipping the scales in one direction. The growing outcome disparity will be blamed on racism rather than acknowledging group differences and social unrest will result. The federal government fears this perhaps more than anything, and they know that white, Jewish, and Asian Americans who are most impeded by Affirmative Action will not riot or make that much of a stink if Affirmative Action remains.
“Calling all cowards. Calling all cowards. Proceed immediately to the Supreme Court. That is all.”
my "Gaydar" just went off like the warning of an incoming missile (no pun intended), when I saw that picture.
why do you think we have obamacare? look at the pic...
That little bastard had better cowboy up and fast. This country’s future is far more important than any personal crisis he may be risking.
Equally obnoxious, it at least has the virtue of calling discrimination "discrimination."
You could be correct, but I think it's his children (i.e. where they were adopted, etc.).
I think he'll say he loves his adopted kids and doesn't want them taken away...
That picture is from the Gaydar Operator’s Manual. It is used for calibration of the visual alert camera.

“affirmative action” will stay. The statists need it to create a permanent underclass that thinks it is downtrodden and that hates the “oppressors” and blames them for its self-inflicted failures.
Also roberts has no concept of law, and votes for whoever yells at him the loudest.
As soon as white kids become less than 50% of their age group’s population, they officially become a “minority”.
AdamBomb, I’ve seen fags. Those are fags.
