Idiot politicians put the Court in this stuff when they try to regulate every aspect of our lives and subsidize certain people for their votes to maintain their power.

Really, it’s for our own good, don’t you know!

I know it is someone else's comment about Ginsburgh, but I think it is telling of the female mindset;


"“She doesn’t need my advice,” said retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. “She can figure that out. She knows her own circumstances and her own desires and her age and her stage in life. I mean, has she done the things she’d like to do here?”


.. and totally belies what the Supers are supposed to be about.

The affirmative action case should be interesting considering the bizarre reason the federal appeals court struck down the ban.

The court says the ban puts an extraordinary burden on those who have to mount a long expensive campaign if they want to protect it.

The Supreme Court today is made up of fruits and blackmailed Justices.

It is majority owned by Obama.

Any decision coming from it is questionable and probably wrong.
