Way to go Scalia.. The only way to transform someone’s life is to be a part of it. It is the original Christian model. Not to mention the Garden of Eden model. If we could all do this, instead of isolating ourselves into our VWR corner. I am soo guilty of that as well. Being around liberals makes me nauseous. Any pointers Scalia?
Don’t feel bad, it’s easier for the elite on the right who are sheltered from the worst repercussions of liberal government(ie, exempting themselves from ObamaCare). We live down here at the bottom of the power hill. I know I despise and can’t stand to interact with liberals. Through their ignorance or apathy, they make life for us a constant struggle to retain our God-given freedom and right of self-determination. It’s hard to deal with people who do that to their fellow citizens.

Amen, and well said.
I think Kagan might end up surprising us. She’s liberal but she’s far from stupid. IF the conservative world view is in fact the righteous world view — and at least you and I must believe it is, ‘cause we’re here on FR — then it stands to reason that a thinking person with integrity can be swayed to abandon liberalism and embrace conservatism.
Bingo! Scalia is educating his urban colleague who has grown up thinking guns are used exclusively by soldiers and criminals. Now she knows - owns it in her heart and mind - that such a view is wrong.
It must be said that no justice rises to that position without first being immersed in the progressive urban culture (law schools, law firms, and courts are all lop-sidedly progressive urban environments), so they need no such tutelage from liberal colleagues (but a conservative justice can educate liberal colleagues just by participating in progressive urban cultural occassions and demonstrating that conservatives are not ignorant - we simply reject crap because our noses work).
What's VWR? Vast wing right...very wascally Republican...nope, can't figure it out.
I spoke to a lib yesterday and spoke about corruption at the highest level of government and in the oval office.
He told me in unmistakable and explicit terms that getting the most corrupt and merciless SOB into the oval office is a desired goal for Democrats. He reasons that if they can do this he would be the most difficult to defeat in the policy arena.
While we search for the most Honest man, they look for the most deceitful, nastiest SOB in the party.
So forget about Kagan or any other lib. It's all show. She'd probably shove a fork in your eye if it furthered her communist agenda. When we get upset about Obama not having a BC, they view it as turn on that he got away with violating the constitution. The Democrat party has gone full blown communist.
